Golfing Around
A guest from Roswell, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2018
Very nice property that is located perfectly within Sandestin. Golf cart a huge plus. Unit will need updates in near future I.e. kitchen, paint and bathrooms. House was very clean and fit our needs perfectly. Management company is outstanding and will use them for future rentals in Sandestin.

Clean home!
A guest from Blythewood, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2018
It was a great experience, even though it rained all week. The resort was nice. The home is clean. While we appreciated having bikes to ride, we had to fix one bike and another broke while we were there. The golf cart was really nice to have and the ride was not bad to the beach.

A Family Affair
Reviewed by: Mark H. recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2018
We were very pleased with the accommodations and they matched exactly what was published. The Baytown Wharf was a nice place that entertained all ages in our family (73yrs-1yr old) including our dog. The Tuesday fireworks were a nice bonus. While we enjoyed the beach we found it to be too busy for our liking and discovered the Marina's smaller beach that had water activities and lunch close by. The house was clean and spacious and the management team (especially Donna) did a great job before and during our stay. We did have one minor plumbing issue that they sent plummers to fix. My only complaint (if you want to call it one)is that the cart was only a 4 seater for a house that sleeps 8, but we managed just fine since the pool was walking distance. We were able to play 2 courses Bluewater Bay (part of the discount card but would not recommend and The Links at San Destin which was not part of the card but well worth the green fees and is on the property. Overall I would recommend Destin Getaways, the house and the resort...all made for a memorable family vacation. We will be back and maybe as soon as Oct!!!!

rental with no fluff
Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2018
"Golfing Around" is very standard in accommodations. You get exactly what you pay for and not much more. The kitchen lacks accessories, the den furniture is old, and the house hasn't had any TLC in some time. The kitchen sink pipes busted, the refrigerator didn't work, and the dryer had its issues. I will say although the maintance people were at our house the whole time they were great, friendly, and very helpful. The maintance crew saved this review from being a disaster.

Great Winter Getaway Rental
A guest from Grimsby, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 28 days in February, 2018
The rental unit was better than we expected from the website listing. Very nice home away from home with a golf cart and verandah overlooking the golf course. There were some issues we took up with the property management and they were addressed immediately to our satisfaction. The golf cart batteries would only get us to the beach and back once before needing a full recharge and the dust cover is badly torn. The clothes dryer makes so much noise that you need ear plugs while it is operating. Other than that the overall impress is that it was perfect for our winter getaway.

Life's a Beach & a Golf Course
A guest from Evans, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2017
The family had a great time while we were there.The house has plenty of room and was clean. The TVs were larger than you usually find in a rental and the sound bar was nice for playing music. The only reason I gave it a 4 of 5 on general conditions is that for my grading it would have to be in mint condition to get a five star rating and as with any house with a few years of age there is some minor normal wear and tear. Overall though, we were extremely satisfied.

Great Labor Day weekend
Brad M. from Roswell, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2016
Loved the golf cart and the way the community is designed to stay out of your car. The house was spacious but the upper room should have privacy instead of a big open rectangle looking down on the den- there needs to be a mutual sound barrier- which would prevent a repeat visit. The bedroom tvs need to be updated but otherwise a wonderful stay.

First trip to Sandestin
A guest from North Augusta, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016
House nice but not worth the cost of rent/fees; rental company was fantastic; great location being in the Sandestin resort; great location on the resort in proximity to beach and Baytowne Wharf; clean but not superbly kept; very worn/old furniture; great old wood flooring; unkept porch and porch furniture; insufficient bicycles/low tires; golf cart too slow and too small for house of this size (which accommodates eight); not enough towels and were very thin and "gray" from over washing/use; kitchen continually had tiny Florida ants regardless of cleaning (which I do day/night even while traveling); lots of "open air" space and high ceilings (pretty to look at) but adds no function; not adequate seating nor storage for large family; resort property was fantastic; on site resort amenities were great; too far a drive for Destin shopping and dining to be enjoyable; traffic was a nightmare; algae bloom (disgusting and clouded water preventing beach going) and fecal bacteria scare closed some beaches; very humid for June; will most likely return to Hilton Head Island and get a LOT more for the money...or consider a trip to a real Florida beach location - the Keys next time around

Response from Destin Getaways Vacation Rentals
Dear Guest,

Thank You for reviewing your stay at Golfing Around in Laurel Grove. We are extremely sorry to hear you didn't feel the house met your expectations. We will suggest to the owner to provide more bikes and check on the current bikes tire condition. We have not had any other guest mention the speed of the golf cart however, we will look further into it. We state in our contract how many towels are provided for the condo however, we are happy to review the amount. We do expect the condition of the towels to be in good standards so that will be addressed with housekeeping. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about the high ceilings with no function. The Gulf of Mexico did experience some issues of its own with algae bloom. The Fecal Bacteria scare was unfortunate but only lasted 24 hours. Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort does provide great amenities and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed them! Florida weather is very hot and humid but the Gulf of Mexico will cool you off so future guest have no worries! We are extremely sad to hear you will not be picking Destin as your next Florida vacation spot but should you reconsider we will be happy to accommodate you!

Thank You,
Management

Quick getaway: Awesome overalll
A guest from Marietta, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016
Only having a few days free for kids spring break, we were able to pick up available days at this cute house. Nestled in the trees along the golf course, the location is quiet & relaxing. Enough room for all 8 people in our party. Quick golf cart or drive up to beach. Enjoyed having the bikes to ride. Kitchen well stocked. Would rent here again. Everything easy & automated with rental company.

A great rental option
A guest from Hoschton, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in December, 2015
This was my seventh or eighth trip to Sandestin and this was one of the best rentals yet. The home was well furnished and very comfortable. Loved the location. The weather was so bad, we couldn't use the golf cart, so have no opinion on that. Would definitely rent here again.

Dana S. from DENHAM SPRINGS, LA recommends this property.

We stay in Sandestin every summer. This was the second time to stay in Laurel Grove, buy the first time to stay in this house. We loved it. Golf cart was very convenient. Everything was clean and as described. We went golfing, fishing, and to the beach everyday. The pool was very close by. There was plenty of room, much better than a condo. Thw surroundings are just beautiful. We'll definitely be back and would recommend to anyone.

Nice house
A guest from Sorento, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014
My family and I enjoyed the home. The view of the golf course was beautiful. The only problems that we encountered was the golf cart and the one of the bikes. The golf cart was cute but extremely slow. The bike was squeaked and was rusty. Luckily we brought our own bikes. They were faster than the golf cart. Other than that, the home itself was very nice and we did not have any trouble with it. I would recommend staying here but don't expect much out of that cart.
