"This house is really great and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Great place for families and parties and hanging out with friends. The best part was the swim pool for the kids and a very short walk to the beach. It is a private area with private beach access and you can't beat it for the dollar here near Destin Florida."

"Leaving the winter chill behind, we journeyed to the beautiful beaches of Seaside. The carriage house was like being home! The carriage house is aptly named--it is a house! With a beautiful kitchen and all the amenities, you come home to some blueberries, chocolates and a bottle of wine! One cannot help but feel at home. The living area is large, with a table and chair as well as a desk, besides the comfy couch and fun swivel chair. There are books to read and cable TV. If you want a movie, bring your own or even ask Jack (the owner) and I am sure he would lend you one. The bedroom is spacious and welcoming and lots of closet space. The bathroom is unbelievably large and the shower can fit four! Not that you would ever have four people in a shower, but it is huge! The porch is the best part as it has a view of the forest and is completely private. The house is far enough off the main drag that you feel you are in your own private paradise....and it is just that! And if that isn't enough, there is the pool and the hot tub and bikes. No need to go rent them, they are here for free to use as you please. Jack makes the package complete as he will be your guide to the best places to go as well as help you out with whatever will make the trip more memorable. We will be back for sure! One could not ask for more when visiting this piece of paradise! What a great vacation home, away from the tourists but close to the beaches and the town. Truly amazing! We are so glad to have found you!"

"Have you ever rented a beach house that looks great online but turned out to be too reminiscent of a place you rented with several friends while you were in college? The one where you found yourself standing in a shower with water up to your ankles and thin, scratchy towels? Odd coffee mugs from Al’s locksmith and the local bail bondsman? Cookware that looked like it survived a cub scout campout?
THIS IS NOT THAT HOUSE!
This home is absolutely lovely and immaculately maintained. It truly does look like a Pottery Barn catalog. It is well stocked with all the essentials and has many extras that you won’t believe are on hand. My family had a fantastic week at Sandalwood, and we found the home great for our group of two couples and three teens. Our favorite part of the house was the secluded deck seating and grill; it was the perfect way to end the day after enjoying the beach and pool.
The location was great as it is close enough to walk or bike to Seaside, convenient for running out to pick up whatever we needed for meals or entertaining, yet we didn’t hear any noise from 30A. If you have kids your group it's perfect for a run to the Donut Hut and the Popsicle shop (and yes, the ice cream truck pulls through the neighborhood in the afternoon). The owners are a joy to work with and are very quick to respond to any need you may have.
Stop looking. Book this house. Just don’t book it for the week we want to come back!"
