About Elise Watson

We are a family of five from Memphis, Tennessee who have been vacationing at Sandestin for years. We wanted a place to relax with the kids, but one of the best things about our place is that it's big enough to invite others to join you for a vacation.

We love to eat! Place we MUST visit: Old Bay Steamer in Fort Walton, trust us it's worth the drive, romantic dinner Vintij (across from Outlet Malls), eat outside at Laredo's Mexican and let the kids play in the fountain and Tommy Bahmamas (they are super kid friendly if you go just a bit early).

Why Elise Watson chose Sandestin

With three kids ages, 7, 10 and 11, we were looking for the perfect spot that allowed everyone to find something to do and Sandestin is it! The soft white sandy beaches are amazing. When the kids were babies, we would buy an inflatable pool, put in fresh water and stay under an umbrella. Now we are building sand castles and riding the waves!

We love the pool and hot tub at Laurel Grove. My pre-teen son loves Baytowne’s zip-lines and ropes course. My daughter is a hiker and biker and having our home in a cul-de-sac is perfect. We have three kid bikes for your use! Trips to Jolee Island for crab hunting is a favorite. My youngest loves to fish (including for golf balls) in all the ponds surrounding the house. I like to curl up on the back or front porches to read a book or go shopping at outlet malls. My husband loves the golf and deep sea fishing, so ask us for our recommendations!

What makes this house unique

There is truly something for everyone. We stay as a family, as a couple and do men's and women's trips without the kids! Here are some of our “insider�� tips:

Girl's Trip/Relaxation:

Dance it up at the Village Door in Baytowne

Book a spa appointment at the Hilton and you can use the facility for the day. That gives you access to the workout room, then change into your robe and get your treatment. But bring a swimsuit and hang out in the huge whirlpool or sauna, order a very inexpensive spa lunch and read magazines and then finish it off with an amazing shower. You don't need to bring at thing, from shampoo to shaving cream to hairspray and blow dryers, they have it all!

Family Trip with Kids

• After you check in, be sure to go to the website or front desk (beside Watertowers on 98) and get an owner’s activity brochure. During the summer there are literally dozens of activities for the kids that are FREE!

• Instead of turning into Jolee Island, take the hiking path on the opposite side of the road and a treehouse awaits!

• A perfect spot to watch fireworks is on the golf green beside the main gate circle entrance. Bring a blanket and flashlight and let the kids run around.

Men’s Trip

• Make your tee times before 10 a.m. if you want to enjoy pool or beach time after golf.

• Go to Destin Docks the night before (or call) to get a reservation for deep sea fishing. You can choose 1/2 day or all day. Bring a cooler and take your catch home.

• Cooper Grill or Destin Chops are the place for a good steak

• Take the tram into Baytowne and you have a ride home no DD needed

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. A little disappointed that we could not stream a Netflix movie on living room TV, but the house is pleasantly decorated, clean and the two golf carts were lots of fun. Enjoyed meals on back porch table. Would stay here again.

Best home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience near the Sandestin resort. We stayed in the Laurel Grove community and our house was beautiful. Lots of room for all of us, 7 adults and 2 kids. With 2 golf carts we were able to get to anywhere we needed (the beach, shopping, restaurants, movie theater). We highly recommend staying here and hope to come back again!

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed here with my family of 5, my sisters family of 4, and my parents. There was more than enough room (with extra large closets and beds in the closets!)

The golf cart was a great addition making it super easy to get around the resort. The pool is close enough to walk and the work out room was sufficient for vacation.

The view of the golf course was great on the back porch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the kids have all asked if we can stay there again next time we go:)

Wonderful Spring Break for a LARGE group!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at 1286 Laurel Way was absolutely wonderful! We had a large group to enjoy the charming cottage which slept everyone comfortably. We loved the location of the property and being able to grill out and relax on the back porch was like being at home. It was exceptionaly clean and very well stocked for our group. I would highly recommend this lovely unit to anyone for a Sandestin vacation.

Owner's Response: While we welcome all reviews, this guest's comments are not representative of this property at all. The house was deep cleaned prior to the guest's arrival. Our housekeeping staff is professional and thorough, and we rarely receive complaints with regard to cleaning. However, if this guest had informed us of her disappointment, we would gladly have sent our housekeeper back to the property. We want our guests to enjoy all that the house has to offer! The bicycles belong to the owner and are not advertised, although any guest is welcome to use them. The home decor is exactly as pictured - upscale cottage style, warm and inviting. For more accurate comments about this property, please refer to the other five reviews which describe this property as the perfect family vacation cottage!

Great Place to unwind and relax!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed the weekend of September 14t-18th. What a great place to unwind and relax for a long weekend. Wish we could have stayed longer with so much to do in the Sandestin area. The golf cart was great, we parked the car when we got to the house and didn't have to drive again till we left togo home. The golf cart was perfect for the beach,going shopping,dinner, and cruising aournd Sandestin. House was very clean and comfy. Could have stayed another week. Love the quiet neighboorhood of Laurel Grove. Can't wait to go back!
