The 'Key Lime Cottage' has everything you could need and want in a vacation home. We are located in the exclusive Laurel Grove neighborhood of the Sandestin Resort. Our beautiful 4 bedroom/3.5 bathroom home is located on the third hole of the Raven golf course.
We are a short 100 yard walk to the community pool, hot-tub and clubhouse. Laurel Grove's exclusive amenities are truly unique, including the private fitness center, full sized heated pool, and hot-tub. The clubhouse actually has its own mini-kitchen, grill, ice maker, and patio area.
In order to make your stay as comfortable as our visits, we have included all of the amenities to make your trip care-free. Top of the list is access to EVERYTHING at Sandestin via our Easy-Go golf cart that seats 5-6 people. This cart is included in your rental. Additionally, we have a new 3 row golf cart that holds 8-9 people. This is available for an upcharge if you prefer. Having three kids ourselves, using the golf-cart to go to the beach, village, etc., has become one of the simple highlights of our trips. During peak seasons, nothing beats a golf cart to get to, and park at, Sandestin hotspots!
We have 6 bicycles (2 adult, 2 teens, 1 youth, and 1 with training wheels) to enjoy on the miles of bike paths around the resort. Also included are fishing poles (3), beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, fire pit, 2 grills, beach toys and 2 sets of his/her golf clubs for your enjoyment so you don't need to worry about bringing or renting all of these extras. We have an attached shed to store all extras.
The house is uniquely designed with 4 oversized bedrooms, making it the largest 4 bedroom floor plan within Laurel Grove. The home is relatively new with under 12 weeks of renters as of 12/1/13. We expanded, painted, and completely furnished the house in 2009. The house is only occupied about 50 nights a year, so it stays in great condition.
The master bedroom on the first floor has a king size bed and a remodeled bathroom with huge walk-in shower with dual heads, truly unique from the other homes! Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms. Our guest room has a queen size bed in one half of the room, with an extended den area completing the additional living space. This TV/game/reading area is ideal for kids when the adults are in the main living room downstairs. This extra space has a queen size futon couch for watching TV that doubles as another queen sleeper. There is an attached full bathroom, including tub, to the guest room. The third bedroom has a full size bunk bed on bottom and a twin bed on top, with a huge walk-in closet. The forth bedroom has 2 full size beds, an oversized walk-in closet, and an attached full bathroom with dual sinks. There is additional sleeping space on the queen size sleeper sofa in the downstairs living room.
The first floor of the house has a wonderful open floor plan between the kitchen, dining area, and living room. The kitchen is fully stocked like your home to enjoy meals. The dining room table comfortably seats 6 people with another 4 bar stools at the kitchen counter. Our huge cozy sectional couch seats six, facing the 51' Plasma TV with Soundbar audio system and DVD player. There is an extra half-bathroom on the first floor. Our back porch, complete with new furniture, charcoal grill, gas grill and ceiling fans is a relaxing place to watch the golfers or to enjoy the lake near the third green.
We have secured high-speed wireless in the house for your laptops. We have a new printer in the upstairs den, that helps those that need to get a little work done during vacation. There is no phone in the house, but cell phone service is excellent.
The home has complete laundry facilities including washer, dryer, iron, ironing board, drying rack, detergents, etc., on the second floor. We have eight oversized beach towels for you to use.
We would like to share our vacation experience with your family. If your family is interested in visiting Sandestin in accommodations that feel like home, while being surrounded by amazing activities/amenities, then our Key Lime Cottage is for you. We have made it beautiful and included everything to make both our trips, and your visits, wonderful. We included the little things that make a relaxing vacation great like having a football to toss, comfortable furniture, fluffy new towels, and kitchenware like home.
Since we only use the home about five weeks per year, and will only rent it for about three weeks, availability is excellent. We recommend booking your vacations early, since we will reach our maximum rentals quickly. Call us today to book your next family vacation and see why this is truly a wonderful place to stay!

About the owner: We are suburban Chicago residents that fell in love with Sandestin. We have 3 kids and are an active family who enjoy being outside. We appreciate having fun options to do as a family, and Sandestin offers everything we could want.
Why the Owner Chose Laurel Grove: We bought in Sandestin because it was the only Resort in the U.S. that had all the amenities and activities that we desired. There is nothing else like Sandestin. These are the best beaches in the U.S., the sugar sand is amazing!
The Unique Benefits at this House: We enjoy the golf cart, beach, pools, village, fishing, golf, etc.. Our back porch is so nice to relax on and watch over the lake and golf course. The upstairs den area offers another space for us to read or watch TV in addition to the main family room.
