This quaint lakeside cottage in Laurel Grove speaks for itself. Situated on the 17th hole of the Raven Golf Course, the view is truly spectacular. The golf course is a beautiful backdrop to this lakeside cottage; always active with birds to watch, fish to catch and turtles to feed. All of this is viewed from the comfort of the full wrap around covered deck with gas barbecue for outside grilling. The beautiful morning sunrise is shaded by the fragrant jasmine vines and the wonderful oak and willow trees. The expansive front lawn is a favorite location for a variety of lawn games. The Laurel Grove cottage neighborhood is located in the 2400 acre, World Class, Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort on the Emerald Coast of Florida, renouned for its white sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico.

* Excerpt from a note sent to me from a previous family:

"Hi Debbie !

Just to let you know that we arrived at our final destination in Laurel Grove as planned and have been spending the week getting reacquainted with friends as well as settling in at your beautiful home.

Laurel Grove is everything we could have hoped for and more. Although the temperatures have been on the cold side, the sun is shining daily and we put everything into perspective knowing what weather conditions are back at home.

We are so happy that we made arrangements for this same time period next year. Your home is truly the best that we have found to meet our needs while away from home. We love the back yard, the wrap around porch, the brightness and cleanliness of your home as well as the bikes, the golf cart and the fitness center. We really do appreciate your focus on cleanliness and making certain that everything is in good working order, Debbie. Kudos to your cleaning staff as they did a wonderful job in making your home both welcoming and move-in ready.

Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you sharing your beautiful home with us."

As an Owner, I offer a 24/7 personal touch that only an Owner can offer!

It is beautifully decorated with Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors, top of the line stainless steel appliances and granite throughout.

The Marina is a special place for a walk and the daily ferries a treat for a ride on the bay.

About Debbie

Our family chose to purchase our cottage at Laurel Grove because, after being transferred and selling our family home at Sandestin, we knew we wanted to remain a part of the resort atmosphere with our holidays including the beach and golf lifestyle. In the past we have been lucky enough to spend time here at least once a month. Now that our children are growing and moving away, we recently decided to share our cottage with other families through the VRBO rentals. We knew anyone lucky enough to spend time here would have a vacation to remember.

Debbie purchased this house in 2005

Why Debbie chose Sandestin

We chose Laurel Grove because it allowed our family the quiet solitude of a friendly community after a busy day at the resort. Laurel Grove is centrally located with access to all areas of the resort. We liked the opportunity to use our club facilities to socialize or opt out and enjoy the privacy of the cottage. We were lucky enough to chose a prime location in Laurel Grove with wonderful views either for solitude or entertaining. We also liked this particular cottage because the expansive front lawn, away from the roadside, was perfect for the kids and we loved all the cottage windows allowing views from almost every room. I think our favorite thing to do is to sit on the deck at the end of the day with a glass of wine and watch the golfers go by as the sun sets........or........ is it to sit on the deck at the beginning of the day with our coffee watching the sun rise?

What makes this house unique

Our cottage has a grill on the full wrap around deck facing the golf course and lake view. It is in the quiet section of Laurel Grove very near the pool, hot tub and fitness club and beach just a short golf cart ride away! The fishing in the lake is wonderful and the expansive front lawn is the only one in Laurel Grove. The 2 golf cart and the 7 bikes are included and a definite must. The inside is simple luxury with views from every window and tv's in every room. I offer a 24/7 personal touch. A uniqueness that only an Owner can offer. Once you come visit............you will never want to leave! See for yourself.

Great Rental and Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house back in November of 2015 and it is a great house in a great location. Debbie makes you feel right at home and was there to answer any questions you have. The house is equipped with everything you need! The view of the golf course and lake are beautiful and the fishing was outstanding! We intended on renting this property again but my wife's brother died unexpectedly and Debbie not only offered her condolences but also agreed to change our reservation date. We booked another date but that wasn't going to work out either and Debbie was very gracious to return our $250 deposit. You won't find a nicer place or owner in Sandestin. I highly recommend this property to anyone. Thanks Debbie for your hospitality and understanding.

Wonderful SNOWBIRD Retreat !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our two four-footed family members, left snow and ice behind and traveled to spend a few weeks basking in the sunshine and comfort of the Sandestin beach & golf resort. It was our second year spent in this particular home in Laurel Grove, and we honestly could not be happier. We'd been searching for several years for a rental that offered us the comforts of home as well as ample opportunity to enjoy everything Sandestin has to offer, and this home is perfect !

We love the Laurel Grove community. Residents here are very friendly and courteous whether they be permanent year-round residents or vacationers enjoying a few days / weeks away from home. It is the perfect area for walking your dogs, the only thing being asked is that you keep them on-leash and are diligent in picking up after them when out for a walk. In addition to being able to walk the tree-lined streets of Laurel Grove, there is also a small pond with a walking trail around it just a short distance from the entrance to the community which offers a wonderful opportunity for a more extensive romp with your pups should you feel a little more adventurous on any particular day.

Having access to a golf cart (included with this rental) really makes your stay in Sandestin the best it can be. You can take a short ride to Baytowne Village for entertainment or pack up the beach gear, head through the tunnel that goes under highway 98, and enjoy your day on one of the white sandy beaches for which this area is noted. We especially enjoyed the fact that my husband could take the golf cart for the day in order to meet friends for a round of golf at one of the 3 public courses located within the resort, and I could have access to our vehicle for shopping / exploring outside the resort. Should you decide to stay within the parameters of the resort, however, there is also a special exit for 'golf carts only' a short distance from the entrance to the Laurel Grove community allowing you to venture over to Grand Boulevard. Once there, you can spend the day shopping at the many specialty shops or take in a movie matinee. Picking up a few essentials at Publix even becomes a treat when you can motor over on your golf cart, by-passing busy highway traffic. A quick stop at Starbuck's drive-through is, of course, an essential part of your golf cart venture :)

Thank you, Debbie, for making our retirement years such fun !

We'll be back !!

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy cottage located along a pond on the Raven Golf Course. It's a great place for families that love to golf, fish, bike, swim, and shop. You can use the golf cart or bikes to get to the beach. It's close to everything, but still in a quiet setting. The view from the back porch is beautiful and peaceful. Debbie is great to work with and was kind enough to let bring our 2 dogs which also loved there stay. One of our favorite places to eat is the Surf Hut. They have excellent seafood with a beautiful view of the ocean. Highly recommend staying here!

This home is beautifully situated among trees and flowers. Great view of pond, which my dad and husband thorough enjoyed fishing!! The use of bikes and golf cart was great and a must to get from place to place. There is also a closet of essential pool or beach toys/chairs, etc. The pool is exquisite and is within walking distance. However, you will have to take the golf cart, shuttle or car to get to the beach, the wharf and the mall. Easy to get around once you learn the layout. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the cottage bc even though there are others close by, we rarely saw anyone else. The only thing I didn't care for is the room upstairs is in a loft with no door and a big opening in the wall, so the sun comes in and noise travels up. If that doesn't bother you, this is a PERFECT location and home and Debbie was absolutely wonderful to work with. She always promptly answered my questions and assisted in any way possible. Highly recommend!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review!! You will be happy to know that we have enclosed the upstairs room since your visit, so your next visit with us will be even more amazing. We have also included a 2nd new golf cart and more new bikes in our rental. We look forward to your next visit! Debbie :-)

Breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

My favorite part about this rental was the incredible view of the lake and golf course. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch and taking in the view. My boys and I went out everyday and fed the turtles. I'm missing them already! Debbie is wonderful to rent from and pays attention to detail. We enjoyed having the golf cart to get us around the property and Baytowne Wharf. You MUST try the 10 napkin roast beef po-boy from Acme House! Make sure to walk out to the end of the pier at sunset. We are already planning our trip back!
