Whether you are vacationing for an entire week or just a weekend getaway, this charming lake front cottage in the Laurel Grove neighborhood of the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort will soon become a family favorite.

The tranquil setting of the Laurel Grove cottages is nestled within one of Sandestin’s four golf courses. There is also a wonderful lake view from the porch area of the house where the sportsman of the group will take pride in catching a fish from the fully stocked lake.

A comfortable sectional sofa gives the living room area plenty of seating, and a fantastic Entertainment center houses a large flat-screen TV and DVD player. Top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances enhances the light-wood kitchen cabinets, and the spacious dining area has seating for 6 with additional seating at the kitchen counter -- just perfect for a home cooked Southern-style meal!

The first floor master bedroom is rich in décor and contains a large king size bed and a TV and DVD station. The master bath boasts dual sinks, a large tub to relax in after a day on the beach and a private shower. Three bedrooms on the second floor offer a second master suite with a King Bed, a Queen bedroom and a bedroom with two extra-long twin beds and entertainment center. As a bonus, the Queen bedroom and Twins bedroom offer additional bedding in the closet areas -- making this house perfect for 10 people!

Enjoy a good work out at the Laurel Grove sophisticated exercise room and, for those hot summer days, take a swim in the expansive pool or relax your tired muscles in the hot tub. For those nights where you want to BBQ, take advantage of the gas grills at the pool area.

"The Livin' is Easy" with a golf cart for transportation, and it can be taken everywhere around the resort. The golf cart is housed in the garage which can be used for extra storage.

Laurel Grove is on the Bayside of the resort, just a short drive to the Village of Baytowne Wharf and the Marina. Or, for your convenience, be sure to take advantage of the free shuttle service!

On those nights you want to enjoy an evening out, the Village at Baytowne Wharf offers an array of restaurants from fine dining to pizza, Bar-B-Q and more. Weekly concerts on the lawn offer local talent that can't be beat. Or, catch the latest movie at Grand Boulevard at the new ten-screen cinema.

Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort, Northwest Florida’s most exclusive residential resort on the Emerald Coast, is a 2400-acre, gated community offering four 18-hole golf courses, a state-of-the-art golf learning center, putting course, tennis courts; 11 swimming pools, miles of paved trails for jogging and bicycling, a nature conservancy area, kids programs, a full-service marina, fresh and salt water fishing, full-service health club and spa, award winning restaurants and world class shopping.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you, Natascha



We enjoyed our stay very much. The home was perfect for us, and we especially liked the bedroom arrangement and the location. I will be happy to post a review.



We did find one other very minor maintenance item - the corkscrew was broken! (We had a spare!)



Do you have any idea when we will receive our security deposit?



Thanks again

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the home, location, convenience and having the golf cart was very helpful! Our only issue was there were some bugs. Most of them were dead and under the sofas (which had not been cleaned under in a while - dust, bugs and other small objects under them when we got there). We had to wipe down the bannister and exposed wallboards but that was quick and easy enough. The rest of the home was clean and well kept. We would stay there again and would recommend it to others! We had a great week with our family. There's so much to do in this area.

This was the first time we used this company and this is our 4th year coming to Destin. We were really excited to see it having 2 masters and 2 additional beds in the closet! More than enough room for the 8 of us. The back porch to the lake was very relaxing in the mornings and evenings feeding the turtles. We enjoyed our stay and will be back next year..same time same place!

Reviewer Comments:

This is our second stay in this house. Therefore i am comparing this stay to the first one. The house, back porch on the lake and golf cart was marvelous. There were just a few differences between the stays that were puzzling. Upon our arrival we found chip and snack bags under a bed upstairs. Kitchen had only 2 skillets, and a little smallish dutch type oven pot. No stock pot. When we went to use the grill outside we found the rack from the pan under the oven in there. Someone had been cooking outside on it and left it out there. The porch furniture was muddy and there were signs of multi use without care. Please understand that we had a wonderful family vacation. It was just in comparison w the time before, our family were sad to see it had become just a rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jean for your wonderful review! I'm sorry to hear that there were some issues you encountered during your stay. We can certainly attend to these issues. The housekeeping issues will definitely be dealt with. The porch and chip bags should have never been an issue and for that I apologize. We hope you will stay with us again in the future and we will continue to strive towards making our guests experiences with us great ones!

We had four adult couples and two children (4&2) and the house was great. The only issues we had were the sheets in the downstairs bedroom were stained and the WiFi in the house was pitifully slow (but we were on vacation, so it shouldn't really matter). Overall, we had a great time and we would definitely recommend this place to others.

Platinum Services provided us with an absolutely flawless holiday this winter. The house was well maintained, located close to numerous amenities, perfect for travelers wanting to experience the tranquil setting on the back deck or to be part of the festivities in Baytowne Wharf. The best of two worlds. From beginning to end PlatinumServices made sure our holiday was tailor made.
