                                                                  Terli C.

                                                                  It more than met our expectations. We found the house well stocked with all the amenities as if we were in our own home. It was well furnished and very comfortable. The owner was very easy to communicate with and they were very concerned about our comfort and needs. The resort was great and we enjoyed riding around with the furnished golf cart going to the beach, the many pools, the village and shopping center. Our 2 year old granddaughter especially enjoyed riding around on the cart.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

You have everything you need for your vacation stay including a golf cart. Can drive cart to beach and pool. Love the house. Carey is wonderful to deal with. Look no further. Highly recommend

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  We return to Carey's Cottage every year! Carey goes out of her way to provide helpful information, a fully stocked kitchen, use of golf cart to get around Sandestin, beach towels, umbrella, toys, bicycles, garage parking. We always especially enjoy our time there.

                                                                  Can't wait to go back!

                                                                  We loved our week at Carey's home. The layout was great for our family of five. The kitchen was well stocked, beds were comfortable and all of the extras made it a standout rental. The convenience of a garage with a golf cart, bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrellas and beach toys made our stay perfect! We took the golf cart and bikes everywhere! Our kids (ages 9, 11, 13) loved having the freedom to ride bikes all over the resort by themselves. There are bike paths for safety. They won the pie eating contest, mini golf tournament and came in second place in the scavenger hunt. There were fun activities planned every day that we took advantage of. Carey's house is on a quiet street and is a short golf cart ride to the beach or to Baytowne Village. The beach was beautiful and we enjoyed the pools as well. Everyone is our family agrees that we would like to go back and stay at Carey's house again. Carey was great to work with and very responsive. I highly recommend this property.
