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 Laurel Hill
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.

Located on a horse farm and right next door to a county park where you can hike and picnic under covered pavilions.

Quiet and Beautiful
We were there for a wedding in Laurel Hill, love the area as I grew up in small town like this. Beautiful beaches within an hour and I liked returning to Laurel Hill to the slower pace.
OMG! Awesome stay!
We could not have asked for anything better. Beautiful home and surroundings. We definitely stay again.....hopefully for longer next time.
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.
Lake Jackson, AL is 8 miles from this home in the town of Florala, AL.
