You will love our views….. lakefront,18th tee and fairway of the Raven Golf Course!!!!!

The golf cart is a fun and convenient way to travel around the resort. You’re just a few minutes from the beach, the village or shopping on the Grand Boulevard, just next door to the Sandestin Resort. Park your car and use the cart!!!!

So come stay in the Tommy Bahama inspired showcase home at Laurel Grove. Our cottage has a master suite downstairs (king) with a private entrance from the front porch. There are two bedrooms upstairs (queens), a sitting area which converts to an additional queen bed. The cottage comes with a TV, DVD and Stereo in the great room along with TVs and DVDs in the bedrooms and free WiFi! Our cottage boasts high ceilings and doorways, heart-of-pine hardwood floors, and a custom kitchen. It is fully furnished and lavishly decorated throughout. And for your added convenience there is a BBQ, and contained in our deck box you will find a beach umbrella, an assortment of beach chairs and a variety of beach toys. You will enjoy sitting on our back porch overlooking the lake and seeing the 18th tee and fairway of the Raven Golf Course just on the other side. You can also try your hand at catching a bass right off the back porch (catch and release) some fishing equipment supplied. We are a two minute walk to the private Laurel Grove community clubhouse and pool. Our cottage is situated on a very quiet cul-de-sac with a green space for kids to play. There is no better location in Laurel Grove. We also have bikes for your enjoyment.

Laurel Grove is located in the beautiful gated Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Destin, Florida and is one of the newest communities in the resort. Laurel Grove is a charming cottage community surrounded by four picturesque holes of the award-winning Raven golf course. The community was designed for spacious, private living and is perfect for your family vacation. The Laurel Grove community features a private clubhouse, swimming pool, hot tub and fitness center, restrooms, lounge chairs, kitchen facilities with BBQ and parking. This is, without a doubt, the nicest clubhouse and pool in the resort.

The Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is considered among the best golf and beach resorts in North America. The resort is uniquely positioned on 2400 acres of beautiful property that stretches between the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and calm warm waters of Choctawhatchee Bay. On site are four championship golf courses, swimming pools, walking and biking trails, fishing, marina, over 40 shops, award winning restaurants and wonderful nightlife.

This is the setting for a perfect vacation.

Now we’ve barely mentioned our beach! The Emerald Coast is on the western panhandle of Florida that has the famed “Sugar Beach,” so called because the nearly pure white super fine silica sand which has the consistency of sugar. These super refined crumbs of sand have, for thousands of years, washed down from the Appalachian Mountains and now cover the beaches of the Emerald Coast. It is estimated to be 97% pure quartz. This sand is unique in that it is so soft it will squeak under your feet. Little wonder it is considered one of the finest beaches in the world! Western Florida boasts over 300 sunny days per year. Water temps are high 80's in the summer and low 70's to mid 60’s in winter.

Do not take our word for it, please see what our guests are saying about this wonderful vacation home.

About Owner

Retired...we love to play golf, stroll the beach, dine at many of the local restaurants or just relax on our back deck with a glass of wine

Owner purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Owner chose Sandestin

We first started coming to this wonderful area in 2007 and absolutely fell in love with everything about it. The warm climate, beautiful beaches, great golf, shopping, restaurants and friendly people. It has everything we could want to relax and enjoy life. After renting for a few years we felt we would like to own a little piece of paradise. After considering a number of local areas we chose our cottage in Laurel Grove, Sandestin. If you choose to come and stay in our cottage you will understand why we chose this location. Sandestin is a gated resort that offers everything you could want in a vacation destination.

What makes this cottage unique

We have chosen to manage our cottage ourselves to give you a more personalized and high quality service. Our home is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking one of the beautiful Sandestin lakes. We spend as much time as we can there ourselves enjoying the beautiful and peaceful surroundings and while we are there we personally attend to the care and improvements to our home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful spot. We are Canadian snowbirds who have been wintering on the Gulf shores of Miramar Beach for 20 years enjoying the view from beachfront condos.

The tranquil vista that you provide overlooking the pond and Ravens 18th fairway is invigorating.The sounds and beauty of birds in the bushes a few feet from us as we enjoy our morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and BBQ will give us many memories to cherish as we return north to winter conditions in Ontario.

BEST PLACE WE HAVE STAYED IN DESTIN!

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to Destin once or twice a year for about 12 years now. We have always thought we had to stay in a condo on the beach. This was our first time to rent a cottage and we absolutely loved this house! This is our favorite place we have stayed in! It was so beautiful, relaxing and private. It was spotless and furnished with everything you need. The cottage was perfect for our family vacation. We loved grilling and hanging out on the back porch. The view is awesome! The kids enjoyed their space in the bedrooms upstairs. It was nice having the master bedroom downstairs. There is so much to do close by. This was the first time we felt safe for our kids to roam around by themselves. They rode the bikes to the beach and to Baytowne Wharf. They loved the freedom. Also we were close by to the clubhouse. The kids loved the heated pool and hot tub! The golf cart was awesome to have! We used it a lot going to the beach, store, Baytowne Wharf, and just checking out all of the neighborhoods in Sandestin Resort! We are so excited we found this place to stay! The owners are so thoughtful and concerned about making sure we were pleased with everything. It was beyond our expectations! We can't wait to come back!

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5
My first visit to this part of Florida was last May (2014) when I spent two excellent weeks in the vicinity of Destin. The accommodations exceeded my expectations: the cottage is beautifully furnished, comfortable, fully equipped with everything you need and perfectly clean. The location is convenient and it has a golf-cart provided. Only minutes away are Baytowne Wharf and restaurants, pubs and fishing. Close by, the Boulevard with Tommy Bahama and Orvis, Mitchell and Flemmings for dining and more shopping at Silversands outlet mall and plenty more choices. The gated community boasts several fine golf courses and is close to a few more - the Raven, Baytowne Golf Club, the Links Course at Sandestin, Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club and Regatta Bay. The nearby beach on the gulf coast is absolutely beautiful, white sand. I especially enjoyed the golf, the fabulous sightseeing, the great restaurants and shops and am looking forward to going back as soon as I can. I highly recommend this address!

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with two other couples and had one of the best vacations ever. The house is very nice, very clean and very roomy. Each guest room has it's own TV, and bathroom so everyone can have their own personal space. The rooms are very large, which is great as there is lots of room to store your luggage/clothes which doesn't take up preparation space.

The kitchen was excellent and well equipped with all the tools you need to prepare a gourmet meal even while on the road, but if you don't feel like cooking there are a ton of restaurants to choose within a very short distance (by golf cart, on foot, or by car).

The pool is excellent, we had it to ourselves around 90% of the time. The beach was incredible. White sand as far as the eye could see, and not too busy. We easily found a place to set-up and had a lot of fun crashing in the waves.

The nightlife was also another welcome surprise. The shopping/restaurant marina has some great restaurants and bars were you can go unwind after a long day of lounging by the pool or swimming in the ocean! Don't worry about noise from the marina though as this home is tucked away on a private cul-de-sac about 8mins by golf cart from the marina so it is very quiet and peaceful.

There is so much to do in the Destin area, jetskiing, parasailling, go-karts, waterparks, swamp cruises, golf, etc. It's a fantastic place for a family or for adults looking to get away for a weekend or even a few weeks. You won't run out of things to do and staying at this house you'll feel very much at home even while away.

I cannot recommend this place enough. Go stay there and I'm sure you'll feel the same way. 6 stars out of 5.

Magnificent Spot!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here was great! We enjoyed the close proximity to the pool and the golf course. The home was very clean and included all the amenities we needed. As well, I read in another review there was no HDTV - however - this is incorrect as the TV available during our stay did in fact have HD if you went high enough on the channels. Additionally, the cottage is only a short distance from a spectacular beach. The area itself was quiet and was an a great spot to relax and recharge. We are looking forward to our next visit.

An experience to be remembered!

  • 5 of 5
When we walked through the doors of this beautiful property, we felt at home instantly. Such a warm, welcoming place with all the comforts of home and yet the amenities of
a high end resort. Nestled in a private, picturesque gated community, the home is conveniently located within minutes of Publix, Starbucks and numerous shops and restaurants. The location makes it ideal to walk, bike or take the golf cart, both of which are available.

We had a wonderful two weeks enjoying all this property had to offer. Breakfast was enjoyed on the back porch while watching the ducks in the ponds and the many different bird species in the trees. A very short walk to the fitness center or a golf cart drive to one of the many beautiful golf courses each day was much appreciated. The spectacular beach is very close by and no need to go on the road to get there. In the evening we could
choose to grill outdoors, cook in the abundantly equipped kitchen or walk to one
of the many nice restaurants near by. For the shoppers in the family, the largest outlet
Complex in the nation is five minutes away.

We loved our first visit to this area and it was made even more special by staying at
this wonderful property. It has everything you would want for a fantastic holiday, warmly decorated and very well equipped with everything. There is lots of friendly support available on check-in and throughout the stay if needed. It certainly tops the list of our many experiences in the South over the years. Thanks so much!!
