Fairways house description
Grace Cottage is a charming and completely renovated cottage in the Fairways Community of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Our family has owned this house for 25 years, so we knew exactly what changes would make it perfect for a vacation rental! We have painted, changed, relit and remodeled to make it just right for your family's vacation. It is light and open and inviting. The kitchen and three baths are all totally renovated with custom granite counter tops and tile floors, one downstairs bath has a handicapped accessible shower. My mom is 88,and we needed to make it comfortable for her too! There is a new breakfast bar connecting the kitchen and dining nook. All of the cabinets and pantry are brand new. The laundry room is now in a totally separate area.
We are on the bayside of the resort close to the Marina and Baytowne Wharf. The bayside pool and Sandestin Spa and workout facility are also an easy bike ride away. The cottage is in a quiet section of the resort across the street from the golf course and a stone's throw from one of the many owner pools. Its a perfect area for biking, walking or roller blading. All 4 of our children caught their first fish by fishing off the dock in our back yard pond.
You are close enough to see fireworks on the beach at 9:30 and again on the bay at 10:00! We have also loved being close to the Silver Sands outlet mall (they say it's the biggest designer outlet mall in the south east). The savings are unbelievable and so are the shops!
The Destin and Santa Rosa Beach area have fabulous, award winning restaurants now. Baytowne Wharf has amazing sunsets and night life right within the resort!
Let's not forget the BEACH! Whether you're at Sandestin, Santa Rosa or one of the nearby state parks the sand really is that sugar white soft stuff one sees in the ads. Its made for walking or relaxing with a good book. The gulf stays warm most of the year, but if its too cold for wind sailing or swimming then you can go golfing or fishing-off the dock, off a pier, in the bay or deep sea fishing out in the gulf. As our family says, 'you'd better hurry up to have fun!'.

Should have written this months ago -- Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
We were fortunate enough to stay the month of November last year, and I cannot say enough nice things about both the cottage and the owners. The cottage is exactly as described and the pictures don't begin to do it justice. Although we are originally from this area, the owners made some suggestions for some items we were not familiar with, such as bike rentals that were just perfect for getting around on the cool November days. During our stay the thermostat went out on the heat pump, and the owners could not have been more attentive or concerned. The repairman was there within a few hours and had the new thermostat up and the unit running without any inconvenience to us. The owners did not ask any questions or make any excuses, they were just concerned about our comfort. I especially loved that the garbage came every day, sometimes once or twice. It made it very nice for ensuring that the little blue bags we use for our dog were not lying about. This cottage provided much peace during a really stressful time, and we were able to have my elderly parents stay with us for a week because it is so handicapped friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to all our friends and family. We hope to have the opportunity to stay here again in the future. Thank you for providing such a wonderful vacation.

BEST SPOT AT FAIRWAYS
BEST SPOT AT FAIRWAYS
May 4 - 12.....Perfect Weather, Perfect Location, Great Golf !! This Fairways Cottage is fabulous...so well maintained, beautiful new paint inside and out. BY far, the best stocked kitchen ... the owners have included every pot, pan, tool, etc that you could ever need.....and also a great new gas grill !! The two adjoining sitting rooms make a perfect spot to gather and no one ever feels crowded. All three bedrooms and bathrooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. We love the pond; walking thru the neighborhood; the close proximity to everything...it is great !! One really great thing about this place... the air conditioning works very well. The owners are kind enough to allow you to set the thermostat at a temperature which makes you comfortable. We have stayed in another Fairways cottage that had a lock on it that would not allow you to set it below 72 . Some people cannot sleep in a room that is 72 degrees. We were so comfortable at all times. Love the bar area in the kitchen. It adds extra seating space...or for us....a lovely place to set up our bar. The owners are great...so quick to answer your call when you have a question or can't find something. The arrival was so convenient...just pull up and punch in the key code!!! I can't say enough about this wonderful trip, wonderful place and wonderful owners. We will be back in a couple of months. This is our new "home away from home" LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT

what a precious place!!
what a precious place!!
we had an amazing time at grace cottage. the fishing is great just outside the back door on the wonderful deck in pond. the house was very cheerful and had good vibes from years of (i'm sure) great family memories. we even made some of our own! there was plenty of seating, and all very comfortable--especially the sofa in front of the large t.v. in sunroom. we all piled on there and vegged- out late at nite. the rooms are spread out each with its own bathroom so it made lots of privacy even amongest a large gathering. the cottage is stocked with lots of board games and dvds. the house was recently renovated and you could tell from all of the crisp furnishings and new amenties. you will not be disappointed with this one!! we were very comfortable there, and enjoyed it immensely!!!! sorry our week had to come to and end. the ramsey's (owners) are a wonderful family, and will do anything and everything to make sure you feel at home. p.s. use live worms for fishing...the bass and perch eat 'um up! angel, morgan and gang

WE can hardly wait to hear what you think, and this time it won't take me a year to respond! ps we do the same family time snuggle in the sunroom..
