Charming beach home with great outside areas

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent a week in this lovely home. It is so well decorated and the kitchen was equipped with everything we could need. There was lots of sleeping space for our family and we spent a lot of time in the beautiful sunroom. The outdoor spaces were enjoyed by all, especially the swing on the porch! I would recommend this space to families, especially if the children are ages 6 and up. There is a set of steps from the downstairs that are not traditional and the parents of our young children were very nervous about them even though there is a double locked gate at the top of the stairs.

The owner of the home has been great to work with. He promptly responded to email and answered all of our questions.

The beach in this area of Holden was never crowded and we found lots of special shells. Should you choose this home, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Great multi-family house

  • 5 of 5

Great house with an excellent location. It is on the quieter end of Holden, but close to everything. The kitchen is well stocked and the layout works well for larger groups. We had three families and the house allowed for togetherness, but also room for individual space. The downstairs is a great hangout for teenagers to play and sleep. The owners are easy to get in touch with and made the entire rental process from start to finish a great experience.

Great house for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the Flamingo very much! It's convenient to the beach and into town. The layout worked very well for a house of adults and kids: space for people to convene and also have their privacy. Great kitchen and very well stocked with all the equipment you need - definitely much better than other places we've stayed! The sun room is a great hangout spot with comfy furniture and nice window light. And a great front porch swing! Highly recommend the Flamingo for families.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Flamingo. The cottage was conveniently located on the east end of the beach which we preferred, as it was a quiet and peaceful site. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the front porch which always had a pleasant breeze. The cottage had all the amenities including a great kitchen. We did miss cable tv but hopefully we will have it on our next stay. Thank you Tony and Janet for providing a home away from home vacation .

Deceptively Large!

  • 5 of 5

Flamingo Cottage doesn't look like much from the outside, but there is plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is well equipped and we loved having everything labeled. The backyard is plenty for playing, and the decks were generously sized for the whole family. The only downside was the lack of cable TV, but the wifi was an added bonus and worked well.

Right across from good beach access and on a quiet side street. We were very satisfied with our week!

Picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Family vacation! Loved everything. The front porch was where we spent a lot of morning and afternoons. Loved the views and the swing. The sunroom was well used for game nights. We will all come back again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!
