About Jean Brooks
This is not our first rental! We have been in the property management business for 25 years. In addition to Real Estate Sales and Management, our family raises top quality Quarter Horses to compete in Western Pleasure and Reining disciplines. We lived in Destin and in Niceville but once we got to Laurel Hill, we never left! We still short term rent in Destin and we know what that is like. We love Destin but we enjoy our quiet life in Laurel Hill where people are genuine and true to their word, we never have to wait in line and we know everyone's name. We have decided to give short term rentals a shot in the north end of Okaloosa County and we invite you to come enjoy the life we have grown to deeply appreciate.
Jean Brooks purchased this House in 2007
Why Jean Brooks chose Okaloosa County
If you have some folks that enjoy the excitement of the beach and others that would prefer a quiet setting or country activities (fishing, lake swimming, shooting etc), and if you prefer to spend your hard earned vacation money on something other than a beach house, come stay at Sand and Spurs. This is not your average rental. This home is furnished with million dollar home furnishings, brand new linens, free wifi and Direct TV as well as a fully equipped kitchen to cook until your hearts desire.
What makes this House unique
Located on a horse farm and right next door to a county park where you can hike and picnic under covered pavilions.

clean, neat, comfortable
My three elderly sisters-in-law stayed here while others in the family stayed in a near y home for our annual get together. They all liked the house, but suggested that several light bulbs were either missing or burned out. Also, the rug in the living room being so thin, presented a safety hazard for walking. However, they all still want to rent it again next year.
On our own and loved it!
This lovely home is off a county road with a huge front yard and enclosed back yard that our dogs just loved. Some blooming daffodils (or narcissus?) magnolia tree, and others in the yard were lovely! House, kitchen utensils and the like, we’re CLEAN, not just wiped off—like someone really cared. It might seem trivial and you may laugh, but I hate/fear/scream and cry at spiders and it was a fear coming deep south from the “stories” I’d heard. We didn’t see a single one. Phew!! TV channel choice could be better, but with the Emerald Coast an hour away, that’s minor. Jean and her team answered and solved our minor questions extremely quickly. Aside from being available, we were left peacefully alone...a good thing. You’ll love the solitude and having all the Crestview or Destin amenities not far away.
My son and groomsmen stayed for 3 nights for his wedding in Laurel Hill. Very convenient, very clean, and so very relaxing. Everything we needed was there. Relaxed outside with a fire. Played with the horses next door. I can't say enough how quiet and relaxing it was. If you're having a wedding in Laurel Hill, you should stay here and just relax. 5 Miles to the venue....
Peaceful & relaxing
Absolutely loved our stay. House was great! Very clean and comfortable. Loved sitting on the back porch of a morning with a cup of coffee the first few days and watching the horses. Jean was very accommodating and on top of any question we had. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone staying in this area wanting a nice, quiet, peaceful home away from home. Will definitely stay again next time we are in this area. Thanks Jean.
Nice modern style home with some beach/ decor. Nice views around with all the horses. It's a nice getaway.
A very nice home, beautiful grounds, but as one who is allergic to bees, I was very scared when I walked in the back yard by the out building and much to my surprise I was chased by bees. I had no choice but to leave the leave the propert immediately. When reaching out to the owner, I offered to forfeit 25% thinking that was fair ad I didn't so much as bring my bags in. Much to my amazement, the owner refused and is only returning the cleaning fee of a property that was never used....shameful
This renter never contacted me about a problem. Via email, his secretary told me he was swarmed by bees when he arrived. As soon as I saw this email I sent our handyman and I happened to have our pest control person on the property and he went to the house as well. We were on the spot within two hours of this email and as soon as I saw it. There were no bees to be found in the house or in the surrounding areas but he sprayed anyway as a precaution at the house, in the back yard and in the surrounding areas. I personally had been at the house the two prior days cleaning and working in the yard. I never saw a bee and had no indication that we had any issues with pests. At the time of the first email, the renters secretary did not tell us that he had booked another property. I found out on Monday, via email again, that he had booked somewhere else which gave us no opportunity to rent to another party. When staying in a home, there can be problems that are unforeseen by guests and owners. Giving the owner a phone call and a chance to correct any problem is a necessary protocol. We have a strict cancellation policy and in this case, we stuck to it because this renter did not give us a chance to remedy nor did he release the property to rent to another party. We pride ourselves on clean, very well maintained homes as well as caring about our tenants. As soon as we were notified, we were on the spot and handled this in the best way we could. In an emergency, don't you think it is necessary to make a phone call? Give an owner a chance to responde? We were not told that he booked somewhere else until the following Monday. We did refund his security deposit and cleaning fee but he paid for a stay he chose to stay somewhere else. We hate that his review did not reveal the whole truth.
Lake Jackson, AL is 8 miles from this home in the town of Florala, AL.
