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.

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.

Great location with even better owners

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in Seaside/Destin area for last six years and this was by far the best value for the money. Owners are extremely helpful and eager to please. We encountered a few minor issues on the trip and they responded almost immediately. I have never written a review before but felt compelled to due to helpfulness of the owners. Younger kid caught a bass out back and we really enjoyed getting around on the golf cart and keeping the sand out of our car. Location is ideal and close to everything. Great trip! Would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Mark...Thanks so much for your great review! You have been very gracious and it was a pleasure having you and your family staying at Tuckamore Cottage and you are always welcome back. We are at the cottage now and there has been a very large fish splashing around the surface just off our property for the last two days. I bet your son, “the fisherman” would love to try for that “big one”. We’re sending along a picture! All the very best Paul and Suzie

Spring Break Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for our family vacation. It was in a quiet area but still close to lots of things to do. The back deck was a great little spot for a cup of coffee. My husband and kids enjoyed fishing in the back yard pond. The house was clean and had everything we needed and the owners were very easy to work with. We loved the ease of the golf cart for getting around. We really loved everything about the house and would highly recommend it for any family vacationing in the area.

Spring Break with the kids

  • 5 of 5

We have never stayed in this part of Florida and we loved it. The house was nice, well kept, clean and the view off the back porch was MUCH better than the online pictures showed. The location was quiet and peaceful, yet handy to restaurants, shopping and the beach. The gym they have at the pool house was awesome and I used it 3 times. There are many places to rent in Sandestin, but I doubt there are many that have owners so concerned with your family having a nice time.

A Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our nephew for the week for our Spring Break this year. My nephew is a junior in High School and loves to fish. Every day, he would fish in the lakes and release all of the many fish that he caught including the 3.5 lb large mouth bass. The golf cart was handy to ride around the neighborhood and the bikes were too. We rented an additional bike for the week from the local rental in the village area which is only a little over a mile from the house and is where restaurants and the marinia are. We did a lot of things inside and outside of the neighborhood during the week. But I do want to say that the house is lovely and had everything in it that we wanted, including wireless / Internet, etc. It has a beautiful wood floor and a porch that is nice to relax on as well as a grill and much more. The back porch is right on a small lake which is were my nephew caught the 3.5 lb large mouth bass. The house is on a quiet cove so we were not disturbed by traffic. We didn't ride the tram because we didn't need it. However, it is nice to have it as an option to get around if you don't want to drive, take the cart, or take the bicycle. The club house is about a block away and I used it a couple of times which helped me stay on my exercise program. It has a pool too but I didn't use it. I did see a couple of people sunning at the pool one day. In short, this home and location made for a perfect vacation for us. (And the owners were very nice and helpful too.)

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for two weeks of fabulous R & R in this lovely home in Laurel Grove. The house was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and so warm and welcoming. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bedrooms so comfortable with gorgeous linens and big, fluffy towels for the bathrooms.Thoughtfulness for the guests' comfort is evident everywhere.

The location in a quiet cul de sac with a back deck overlooking a pond and the golf course, is a perfect place to enjoy morning coffee and birdsong or evening cocktails accompanied by the "evening chorus" of frogs, toads and other night creatures.The golf cart is an added bonus for easily accessing the amenities of the resort and its shopping and many restaurants and for riding to the beach to enjoy its stretches of white sugar sand.

It is the perfect vacation spot with lots of peace and quiet but with plenty of action nearby as well. The owners, Suzie and Paul, were perfect hosts and so very helpful and considerate of our comfort during our stay. We had a wonderful time and can't wait for our next visit.
