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.

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.

Flamingo cottage

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful. It had everything we could possibly have needed. The grandkids loved the (castle room). Our sons really liked the big kitchen since they did all the cooking. All in all it was a great week! We hope to be back next year.

Our family had a wonderful stay at this bright and cheerful home. It was close to both beach and swimming pool which made all the grandchildren happy. Grandchildren range from 6-23 and all had a fun week as did the adults.

Peaceful Cottage with a view

  • 5 of 5

The flamingo cottage was so clean and comfortable for our family trip. We have visited 6 years in a row for our annual getaway vacation and would not go anywhere else! There was ample room for our family even though we had a full house. The kitchen is so big! Perfect for cooking even large meals. The 4 patios made it seem like everyone had a private balcony. The beach front was an short stroll from the back door so we went down to the water every day. The beach was not crowded; plenty of room for frisbee, football and spike ball. Out at the beach we saw dolphins and other fish along with sand dollars and snails. We even found green frogs resting on the sides of the house. It is always such a peaceful and relaxing trip. We'll be back next year!

The house was everything and more than described.

  • 5 of 5

Flamingo Cottage is a dream spot vacation home for a family with young children. The layout and tile floors made coming in from the beach easy to keep clean. The kitchen was better stocked than many homes . The lagoon between the house and the gulf was great for the kids, especially the younger ones. They enjoyed finding marine life and putting them in the motes around the sand castles. The beach is clean and the water clear. The entire gated community was quiet, the guests pleasant , and we especially enjoyed sitting on the decks watching the birds, and enjoying the evening breezes.Thanks for allowing us to stay in your home away from home.
