About the property

4 BR Condo located on the #1 Hole of The Raven Golf course

***Custom 6-seater Golf Cart Included***

Please come and relax for a while in our Vacation home where 'Life Is Good'. This is the perfect setup for a family vacation, Business Conference, or a Girl's/Guy's Trip. This cottage is located in the renowned SanDestin Golf and Beach Resort situated on the famous white sand beaches of South Walton in the Florida Panhandle. Your memories of a life time begin in the Laurel Grove subdivision, one of Sandestin’s newer neighborhoods that features privacy, security and all the amenities. The Laurel Grove Clubhouse is a short walk or golf cart ride away (about 100 yards) and features a private fitness center, heated swimming pool, hot tub, lounge chairs, and outdoor BBQ grills with a mini-kitchen. The neighborhood also features several ponds stocked with bass for guests to fish, catch and release.Take the golf cart to the beach, Baytowne Wharf, Jolee Island (one of our favorite places to grill and run around the nature trails and hunt hermit crabs), The Marina Bar and Grill, Poppy's Seafood, Hammerheads (Sunset Dinner), The Elephant Walk Beach and Pool access, or any location within the SanDestin Resort. The Grand Blvd is located right off of the resort and is accessible by golf cart also. This has many fun locations such as the New Carmike Cinema for family movies and/or date night for 21 years and older at the Ovation Dining Club Movie experience! Publix Grocery is also located off of Grand Blvd and many other unique shops and dining experiences such as Tommy Bahama Cafe, Flemings Steakhouse, Travinia Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar, Cantina Laredo and many more! So, in a nutshell, you can hang up the car keys because the golf cart can basically get you anywhere you need to go!

Our newly furnished house is a warm and welcoming feel for your home away from home experience and is sure to give you that 'beach house' feeling. Featuring a large 4 BR layout including 2 Master Bedrooms, and enough space to comfortably accommodate 10 guest. On the first floor, you will find the first Master suite with queen bed and private bathroom with shower and separate bath with a walk in closet. This room also has a private entrance to the front porch. Downstairs also includes a very open plan featuring a large kitchen, living, and dining room. Granite counter tops, dining table for 6, bar seating for 4, and plenty of relaxing living space for the family to wind down or wind up! Just off the back porch, sit and enjoy the sunset while watching golfers tee off on the #1 hole of The Raven Golf course, which is located just a few yards from the house. The Sunset views and Baytowne Wharf firework displays overlooking the Raven Golf Course will amaze you. Also located on the back porch is a gas grill for you 'Vacation Chefs'.

Upstairs, you will find 3 more bedrooms. Another privately situated Master Suite with King bed is sure to attract the 'sleep in late' guest. It also includes its own bathroom with over-sized shower. There is another smaller guest room with queen bed that is nicely decorated for relaxing get away space and a full bathroom located just across the hall. Finally, our memory filled 'kids room' with 2 sets of bunk beds and decorated for that Caribbean minded kid in all of us. All 3 upstairs bedrooms have really large walk in closets that will also provide additional storage for any of your needs.

We think you will find our bedrooms furnished with that warm and refreshing beach feeling that will help you relax and unwind as it has done for us for so many years.

So enough about the house that you should not be spending much time in anyway... Let's get to why your here! Outside is a custom 6-seater golf cart with safety belts and the key to so many fun filled memories that will last a life time. Get your map and head for the beach, Baytowne Wharf (which has so much to offer everyone from children's activities such as zip lining, wall climbing, playground, The Blast Arcade, many different restaurants and loads of fun for the whole family!), golf, tennis, boating, jet skiing, yolo boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, dolphin boat tours, sunset dinner tours, fishing charters, shopping, dining, and a whole lot of R&R. The SanDestin Kids Zone (our boys love it!!) offers fun filled days and nights for the kids if the adults are looking for some private time! Look for the folder in the kitchen to find a collection of our favorite places to eat locally or have delivered. We are so excited to have you stay and hope your time here will bring you the same happiness it has brought to our family for so long. We are only a phone call away and are eager to help and assist in any way possible to make your stay as best as possible. Please do not leave here without being satisfied and re-energized!! Your going to have a special time full of wonderful memories to last a lifetime!!

The following charges are additional and separate: Cleaning $150.00, Reservation $55, Damage Protection $89, Tax 12%.

About Daron & Suzanne Walters

We are a family from Madison, MS and have 2 adorable boys. We now live in SanDestin full time. We both grew up visiting Destin, FL often and have continued to enjoy this tradition with our kids. We love the beach and enjoy the calming peace that is has given us during our busy lives. Hopefully you will get as much pleasure out of this house as we have received over the past 9 years. Many, many wonderful memories that will be treasured for a lifetime.

Daron & Suzanne Walters purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Daron & Suzanne Walters chose Sandestin

Laurel Grove and this property was very welcoming. The cul-de-sac where the property is located has brought us so many friends that are near and dear to our family. Our kids have become lifelong friends with so many of our neighbors during their summer/holiday stays. We enjoy the break away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded condos and feel this house truly represents a home away from home feel that also has everything within a walk or golf cart drive away.

What makes this cottage unique

The golf cart availability gave us a whole new insight to how much 'beach life' can be enjoyed without having to be packed into a beach side condo. Baytowne Wharf located onsite as well as Grand Boulevard offers the ability to never leave the resort if you don't want to. You have dining, shopping, groceries, The Blast arcade, and much much more!! Take yourself and the kids to Tommy Bahama Cafe, sit out back and enjoy a relaxing dinner while the kids run wild in the adjoining grassy playground (Take a football, soccer ball, Frisbee, or whatever they enjoy) It will be awesome! Want a fun-filled sunset dinner and entertainment? Try out Hammerheads and/or Poppy's Seafood at Baytowne and enjoy live entertainment and dancing.

Wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Sandestin. House was perfect! Clean , well decorated, very private and quiet cul de sac. Pool within walking distance and golf cart was great for getting to beach and Baytown village. We were all sad to leave and can't wait to come back!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house in Laurel Grove was amazing! This was the fourth house we rented in this neighborhood. The furnishings were high end and very comfortable. The owner was extremely generous to let us check-in early. The golf cart was the best one we have driven. We definitely would recommend this house and Laurel Grove!

Thanks again Mr. Walters for sharing your house with us.

Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood - minutes to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from an awesome week in Sandestin. This home is in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by the Raven golf course. The home was very clean, warm and inviting. We felt right at home minutes after we arrived. The master on the first floor was perfect for my mom who joined us on vacation, it even has french doors that open to the front porch. The second floor master was equally as impressive with a large walk in closet and a very comfortable bed. The other two second floor bedrooms were perfect for our children with plenty of closet space in them as well. We enjoyed cooking in the well appointed kitchen and sharing meals around the beautiful dining room table. The living room has comfortable furniture, including an awesome day bed, as well as a High Definition TV with DVD Player and a large assortment of DVD’s. The sun sets directly behind this beautiful home and it is spectacular! We really enjoyed the proximity to activities and dining. With only a couple of exceptions, to tour the area and to shop at the nearby outlets, we used the 6-seat golf cart to get anywhere that we needed to go in the resort. It is a beautiful 10 minute ride to the beach and an even shorter ride to The Village of Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard both of which have numerous shopping, dining and entertainment options. We would strongly recommend this vacation home to anyone looking to relax and enjoy all of the amenities that the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort has to offer.

We had such a good time in this house. The bedrooms and baths were very nice and roomy. It had a very well stocked and spacious kitchen. This house met our needs and we would certainly book it again, if we were going to be in that area.
