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 trees. The expansive front lawn is a favorite location for a variety of lawn games. The Laurel Grove 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.

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

Our cottage interior is 1800 square feet with a golf course and lake view from almost every room. It is beautifully decorated with Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors, top of the line stainless steel appliances and granite throughout.

Discover this active pedestrian bayside village and explore the over 40 shops, award winning restaurants and wonderful nightlife. 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 carts and the 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 will never want to leave! See for yourself.

Another wonderful winter stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year renting this beautiful cottage in the Laurel Grove community of Sandestin. Every year gets better!

The community of Laurel Grove is our absolute favorite and is ideal for walking, bike-riding, and taking advantage of everything Sandestin has to offer. The golf carts provided with this cottage make such a difference. You can shop, dine, golf, sun at the beach, and explore.....all without ever getting into your car. Especially nice if you have several vacationers wanting to go in different directions.

Debbie, the owner is very easy to work with and always just a phone call away if needed.

Hope to return again!

Beautiful home with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our time at this delightful cottage with all the comforts of home! Debbie is so easy to work with and everything you need to enjoy your stay is thoughtfully provided. Loved the quiet, serene neighborhood with the pretty view of the lake. We were thrilled to use the golf cart everywhere we went. It's a quick cart ride to the beach, or to the grocery store and shops on the resort site, or all the restaurants and shops at the Baytowne Wharf. We enjoyed the "powdered sugar sand" beach immensely and were blessed with good weather every day but one. Next time my husband is hoping to play golf also. Our kids are in college and couldn't come this time, but there is plenty of room for them at the house and lots of night life to keep them entertained, as well as activities for younger children. An area truly with something for everyone. A very relaxing vacation for us and we will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review! It is good to hear that all aspects of our cottage were enjoyed on your vacation. The Raven Golf Course out front is our favorite but there are 3 beautiful courses at the resort for your husband to choose from on your next visit. Hopefully your kids can join you too.

Amazing home and owner

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home. Has a beautiful back yard view of golf course and is in a quiet neighborhood. This is our 2nd stay and Debbie has been wonderful through both experiences. 2 golf carts are provided with the rental which was a huge plus for our family. We can't wait to get back to the area again. Shout out to Power Up Watersports for making our afternoon Jet Ski rental an awesome experience.

Beautiful Place...Wonderful Time!!

  • 5 of 5

Just an absolutely beautiful cottage with everything you need right there. The owners were very easy and very professional to work with. I did not have to contact anybody during our stay as everything was as advertised. Really enjoyed having the pond so near and such a beautiful view from the back porch. Golf carts were the icing on the cake. We will definitely stay at this property again!
