About Pamela Flow

I am a single mom of 4 incredible loving , talented , successful,creative and diverse children - Cullen Talley ( and Lauren) , Heather Talley , Travis Talley (and Heather ), and Christopher Flow and the grandmother 'CHACHA' of 3 - Sami, Marki and Riley Reed. As a New Orleans lady ,' Pamela Curran' during that time, I am all about good times, good food, good friends, family and FUN! 'Laissez les Bon Temps Rouller' and do my best to provide that spirit and experience at my rentals. After spending 30 years in Baton Rouge as 'Pamela Talley' and 'Flow' with a Shaklee business , commitment to St. George , and a holistic health seminar coordinator and retreat leader, I moved to the Destin area , Santa Rosa Beach, in 2001 . Being a local owner I am here at your service

The first time I stayed at Townhomes at Crystal Beach was in 1990 and I felt like it was meant to be mine , the Sacred energy of #5 moved me and I knew it was not just beautiful but a special God given healing space to share with others.

The beach here is particularly pristine and private and whether your love is walking along the shore, playing in the surf, relaxing in chairs with friends on the beach, reading a book, sharing a meal or dancing on the deck - I guarantee you will be making memories that last a lifetime.

We are so close to the best of shopping and restaurants . My favorites at the Commons , 3 mins away, are Private Gallery, Apricot Lane, Luxe , Life is Good , Earthbound, Cache, BeBe, Francesca and of course my granddaughter loves Justice. Today's is an exceptional local boutique .

Restaurants are difficult to name as we have so many stellar choices. Walk over to beachfront 790 , 2 doors west of townhome, which has incredible appetizers and happy hour specials , Bonefish is always a delectable treat 3 mins away, Camilles is a short stroll and has everything including super sushi and Pompano Joe's, casual open beachside dining, day or night ,has the best of seafood Carribean style

Pamela Flow purchased this townhome in 1993

Perfect condo for our family of 11

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week at Sacred Sands celebrating our youngest child's college graduation - the accommodations were perfect for our family of 11 (included a 9 mo old). Access to the beach from the 1st floor was very convenient and greatly appreciated - easy to run back and forth to the condo for baby naps, refill coolers, fix lunch, etc. Enjoyed having my coffee off the master BR deck looking over the beach and gulf each morning - we loved having decks on each of the 3 levels. Beds were very comfortable and the hostess was so accommodating with having a port-a-crib on site for the baby. The living areas were spacious enough for all of us to gather in the evenings for dinner or conversation. The weather was perfect the entire week; close to grocery, restaurants, shopping if you like. Will definitely stay here again

Great home for multi-family groups right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend with a group of 12 spanning 3 generations. This was a great option for us, as the grandparents could stay in the ground floor studio apartment, making for less trips up and down stairs. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have their own space, and we loved having the two balconies and huge deck with grill for family time. Being able to walk down the deck stairs right onto the beach was such a plus! We had a couple of minor repairs needed during the week, and the owner was easy to communicate with, very prompt and completed the repairs with minimal disruption to our stay. Highly recommend to anyone who likes immediate access to the beach, watching dolphins, strolling up and down the beach, "crabbing" with flashlights in the evenings and the sound of the ocean to put you to sleep. Our kids also loved having the pool to swim in when they got tired of the waves (usually only a couple other kids at the pool!).

Perfect beach condo for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

Very clean place, perfect for two families. Kids shared the room with the bunk beds, adults had their own rooms.

Kitchen is nice and well appointed with amenities and we were able to make most meals easily in the condo.

Best part of the setup is the first story access to the beach. We went straight out without having to climb stairs, ride elevators - made the entire beach experience very enjoyable.

Pool is close by and a the warm spa is a nice amenity on those rare cold beach days.

Location in Destin was close to lots of stores and other activities.

Enjoyable townhouse with a wonderful beach

  • 5 of 5

A family of 12 members arrived and enjoyed our stay very much. The property was very comfortable and steps from the sugar sand beach! It was helpful for us to have parking and we all enjoyed the three different decks. A very accommodating and pleasant owner.

A great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Let's see...roomy, nicely appointed, complete kitchen with all the pots, pans, plates and utensils you need, comfortable, sleeps 12, private beach, beach chairs and umbrellas, ping pong, foosball, board games, swimming pool, and many other features!!!! This is one of the nicest places I've stayed in my 61 years, 31 as a married father of three boys. Located in an 8 unit townhouse building in Crystal Beach. / Destin Florida, Unit 5 at Crystal Beach Townhouses is outstanding. As my family has grown and moved around it is harder to find a place for all of us to stay. This absolutely fits the bill. My only concern about giving such a strong recommendation is that it might make it harder for us to get reservations in the future!!!! Love it.

You wont regret it :)

  • 5 of 5

My family visits Destin nearly every fall and we typically rent a house on Scenic 98, because that is our favorite part of Destin by far. This year we wanted something directly on the beach, but with a pool and this was the perfect spot. Large deck right on the beach was perfect for our family (my mom and dad, sister and brother-in-law, my husband and 3 small boys, ages 5,4, and 1). There was plenty of space, the best stocked kitchen we have had so far. Everything you need for children is there, which is awesome! The owner was wonderful to work with and prompt with her responses. I had never booked from vbro previously and was skeptical at first, but we had nothing but the best experience and hope to stay here again in the future. You will not regret booking this property!
