About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

The Flamingo Cottage, located in Santa Rosa Beach, is the ideal spot for your next vacation! The cottage is located along scenic highway 30-A in South Walton County. Just 5 minutes from Seaside and 12 minutes from Sandestin, the cottage is convenient to anything you wish to experience.

The Flamingo Cottage offers Free Unlimited Long Distance calling, Free High Speed Internet access with WIFI, and Premium Cable Movie Television channels for viewing. Free HD Digital Netflix movies are available on all flat screen televisions.

The Flamingo Cottage is part of the very exclusive, gated community of Old Florida Beach. This community offers three private beach walkovers and a private pier on Draper Lake. Flamingo Cottage offers four covered decks/balconies. Since there is no highway or busy street to cross, all of the guests walk to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The sand dunes begin just 50 yards from your back door.

This gorgeous, private beach offers sugar white sands, beautiful blue water, and all of the relaxation you can handle. If you somehow become tired of the beautiful beaches, the cottage is positioned just ten steps from the new heated community pool and large lanai. With only 40 homes in the community the area maintains a degree of warmth and privacy that will only enhance your vacation experience.

After a day at the beach, The Shops at Gulf Place are just a short stroll away. Gulf Place offers chic boutiques, a summer concert series, and exquisite cuisine offered in a variety of restaurants. The Sandestin Outlet Mall, one of the largest upper scale malls in the region, is located just 12 minutes from the cottage.

Flamingo Cottage has approximately 2800 square feet of living space. There are also four covered balconies with a screened master balcony that adds an additional 500 square feet for your entertainment pleasure. The first floor has 3 bedrooms. The largest is the master suite with a king size bed, sofa, large private bath with jacuzzi tub, two person shower, and private screened balcony. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and a private balcony. The third bedroom has a twin over full bunk bed with a pull-out trundle. This bedroom also has a balcony. There is a second full bath on this floor. All bedrooms are fully furnished to include a flat screen TV, bluray DVD, and telephone.

The second floor has a large den with queen sleeper sofa and kitchen as well as a second master with king bed that connects directly to the second floor bath. The kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances. There is also a large laundry room/pantry with lots of shelves and a washer and dryer. For your convenience, the kitchen is fully-equipped with all major and minor appliances (especially a working blender!). The den has a large flat screen television, stereo, bluray DVD, two sofas and a beautiful view of the pool.

The third floor tower has a pub table, flat screen TV, bluray DVD, and a queen sleeper sofa. Perhaps the most enjoyable thing about the tower is the beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico and Draper Lake. The tower is an ideal spot for happy hour, quiet reading, or a nice place to send the kids to enjoy a movie, allowing the adults to have some quiet time!

The Flamingo cottage is no ordinary cottage. While vacationing you will enjoy many architectural amenities such stone tile, nine foot ceilings, crown molding throughout, corian counter-tops, recessed lighting and oak stair cases. The two car garage is 25x25 which will accommodate two of the largest SUVS or trucks. There is an outdoor shower available for your pleasure after your visit to the pool and beach.

A vacation along the Emerald Coast will be a vacation filled with wonderful memories of beautiful white sand beaches and gorgeous sunsets for years to come. Please consider renting the Flamingo Cottage, located on Santa Rosa Beach when making your next vacation plans. For the moment, it is one of the best kept secrets along the Beaches of South Walton.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My recent stay Flamingo Cottage was one of the best trips ever. The house was very clean, well appointed, and "beachy". We loved the large master downstairs. The kitchen had everything we needed. The third story tower had views and was a great place for happy hour. The location of the new community pool was really convenient and close to the house as was the beach access! Only a few steps and you could easily enjoy either the heated pool OR the beach! This community has an unusual amount of beach space so the beach was NEVER crowded. We got really spoiled for a week and will definitely vacation here again.

Lovely family vacation location!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Flamingo Cottage (Oct 1 - 8, 2017) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is so comfortable and relaxing for family vacations and our 4 grandchildren (ages 3 - 6) really loved the pool (and how close it is to the cottage)! It is also an easy walk to the beach with boardwalks and stairs to get down to the sand. The beach was so beautiful and private!

We will be back!!

Great house by amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in great shape and everyone had an awesome time. The beach is a short walk with many steps, but it is simply breathtaking. The pool is as if it was in the backyard. We had the pool and the beach almost to ourselves.

Family Week

  • 5 of 5

I was impressed with the home and the proximity to the beach and the pool. We were able to walk out the back door and go straight to the pool which was really great with the young children we had with us. We had a large group of family members and the house was set up so that everyone had their own space and didn't get on each other's nerves. The streets are very friendly for bike riding and walking. There were little touches throughout the house that I loved - they had extra ice trays in the freezer so if the ice maker didn't make enough ice, you could use those, there were games and cards . Loved all the porches , kitchen was well equipped, the home had a gas grill and a charcoal grill. I could list a dozen more items that were great about the home. Would definitely rent this one again.;

Charming, Family Friendly and Quiet Neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

My family and my sisters' family spent Spring Break week at the Flamingo Cottage. It was a wonderful week. The house is set up great for families with kids! The kitchen was well stocked and a large garage was a nice addition. Access to the pool is literally steps from the backyard! Beach access is just a few feet beyond the pool. We enjoyed the close proximity to the lake as well. The gated community had friendly neighbors and allowed the kids to ride bikes and roam around the lake on their own. Close proximity to restaurants and shopping was an absolute added bonus!! I would recommend the Flamingo Cottage to any family or group looking for some relaxation time.
