Sandpiper Cove Condo

Sonny's Landing

Looking for the perfect vacation spot that lets guests bring their own boat or jet-ski, find fish or crab just five steps from your door, and has an awesome view of the sunsets of Destin harbor? Look no further.

The Sandpiper Cove Condo, located directly off the Harbor in Sandpiper Cove Resort, is a quiet, 42 acre, secured, gated community located on the Emerald Coast of the famous Destin Harbor. Guests can visit the beach to parasail, jet-ski, rent kayaks, or go down to Gilligan's to rent a pontoon boat for a dolphin or sunset cruise, and the fishing enthusiast can find great advice and go on both deep sea and bay fishing excursions.

In addition to the beautiful view, fishing, and water fun, guests also have a nine-hole par three golf course, six tennis courts, five swimming pools with hot tubs, and shuffleboard. After a fun-filled day guests can relax at the beach pavilion with appetizing food and a full bar overlooking 1100 feet of private, sandy white beach in a provided beach chair. Grill out and entertain on the upper or lower patios.

Inside your condo, the master bedroom has a king-size bed, TV/DVD, full bath, a separate vanity, and French doors that open to a perfect view of the harbor. The second bedroom has a queen bed, TV/VCR, and a full bath. The living room, equipped with a large TV/DVD and stereo for entertaining. There is no need to over pack clothes for your stay because there is also a washer and dryer, full size iron and ironing board, and guests can rent cribs, pack and plays, strollers, and activity centers.

Spend the days busy with fun-filled activities, or quietly relaxing on the beach, snacking in the beach pavilion, reading from the extensive collection of books, and enjoying the view on two patios. Spend the evenings listening to the sounds of the waves, watching a movie from the available assortment or just take advantage of being within walking distance to some of the finest dining the Gulf Coast has to offer.

Book this Sandpiper Cove condo today for the perfect vacation!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Hey Jack, if you've got a problem with this place, you should just stay home and practice blowing your duck call. I thought it was perfect. Here's the scoop:

GREAT LOCATION - Eastern end of Destin Harbor with a great view

- Right next door to Louisiana Lagniappe, one of the best restaurants in Destin

- Short walk or car ride to the beach (gated with private parking)

- Short drive to other good spots in Destin

CONDO - Clean, quiet, relaxing 2 BR/2 Bath

- Nicely decorated and comfortable

- Great view from deck

- Right on the harbor

- Looks just the listing photos, if not better

- Flat screen TVs, washer/dryer, and plenty of other stuff to make living easy

RENTAL PROCESS - Easy, accommodating, no hassles

- Professional

- Very competitively priced

Of course I would go back to Destin, everybody loves it. But, would I select this property again? ABSOLUTELY! In fact, I'm already thinking about planning another trip. I hope you enjoy the place as much as we did. It was PERFECT! How many things can you say that about?

My Favorite Sandpiper Cove Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We came as a family of 4. We have 4 yr. old twins and this condo was so kid friendly! They absolutely loved sitting on the deck in the morning and evening watching the fish jump,the herron's walk around and catching crabs with the crab trap. My husband and I loved sitting on the very private deck in the evenings and enjoyed the hammock as well. This condo was clean and well stocked. The master bed was SO comfortable. I loved the dressing area in the master bedroom which allowed me to spread all of my make-up, hair products, etc. without cluttering up the bathroom. My husband loved the computer desk in the master bedroom and free wi-fi! The pool is close but not so much that you hear all of the noise. Louisiana Lagniappe is right at your door. The list goes on. We can't wait to come back! Thank you Barry. I hate it took me this long to write a review. Looking forward to spending our family vacation here for years to come!

Senior Trip

  • 5 of 5

This condo is excellant! It is everything the description says and more. There is plenty of room, the king size bed felt like my own, and the deck's view was calming and serene. I know everyone who was with me agrees. It is definately a home away from home. We all enjoyed the Cove's private beach as well as the inlet waters behind the condo. It's perfect for anyone who wants to be in Destin but not near the hustle and bustle, and it is still in close proximity to everything. Enjoy your stay! Because we did!!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely perfect for our family. The view is amazing. We found the accomodations to be more than satisfying. The condo was beautifully decorated, clean and fully equipped. I cannot say enough good things about this condo and our vacation experience. Amber and Barry made us feel like the condo was OUR home. We will definitely be back in 2012!!

My husband and I decided a long weekend was due for us so we headed to the beach. We stayed in this condo and could not have been more pleased with the place. The condo was clean and tidy. Since there were only 2 of us, we had more than enough room throughout the condo. We loved sitting on the back patio looking out onto the water as the sun set. We loved sitting in the chairs and having the bistro table there to set our beverages on while we listened to music from the ipod docking station. We enjoyed having the luxury of the kitchen there even though we decided to eat out every meal and splurge. I cannot tell you how convenient the location is either.. across the street from Target, the Donut Hole, etc. The water this time of year is absolutley beautiful too.. SandPiper Cove keeps their property in tip top shape as well as their beach property. I cannot wait until next year when we are able to visit this condo with another couple. i will most definatley be staying in this exact same condo. Speaking of the keyless entry. We absolutley loved this feature. We did not have to keep up with a key or worry if we would lose it at the beach. The crew even replaced the keyless feature while we were there.. they were extremely kind to both myself and my husband. They left us their contact information in case we needed anything at all while we were there. Thank you for allowing us to come into your condo and make it our home for the long weekend.

We Rented a Lemon - Boaters Beware

  • 1 of 5

We arrived, entered the keyless entry code and nothing happened. We heard clicking, but no green light. After about the 5th time the lock released. Luckily, the owner left the key to the condo. We walked in to a pile of dirty linens, dirty dishes, and dirty bedrooms. We contacted the property manager who asked us to leave for a few hours while she contacted the cleaning crew. Keep in mind, the main selling point for the condo is the fact that we could bring our own boat, which we did, so leaving the condo to cruise around pulling a boat down the strip was not an option. We offered to clean it if they would waive the cleaning fee, but this was not an option.

Tired from driving, we chose not to leave, but to sit on the deck. When we walked onto the deck, there was no furniture.Sitting on our cooler only lasted a few minutes. We locked our luggage in the truck,launched the boat,and cruised around the harbor while waiting for the cleaning crew.

Hours later, we came back to a clean condo ready for a shower that ended with standing in 12" of water. Drainage was slow, which was disgusting. We finally got to sleep and were interrupted at 630 AM by noises on the deck. We confronted the men on the deck and learned that they were there to paint the deck and would be there all day. It’s early so we go back to sleep only to be awoken again by the men throwing the furniture onto the deck. There is a bright side; we now had deck furniture.

Other items of concern were insufficient lighting in the bathroom due to missing bulbs. Our card was overcharged for the rental fee which was returned by check. Our deposit was also returned by check–after 10 days of departing. They could have at least put it back on our card.


Contact SC prior to arriving. The regs provided by the owner are not current. The description that states ‘Complimentary boat docking is available for our guests with electrical and fresh water wash-down’ is not true. You may be able to snag a boat slip from SC for a fee, but it may not be close. If you bring your own boat–MAKE ARRANGEMENTS WITH SC PRIOR TO MAKING A DEPOSIT. You must pay to park your trailer off site. Be sure to bring your own mooring equipment.

We will never stay at this place again, nor will we refer anyone other than a maintenance person residing in Destin to contact the owner for possible work. I would recommend that the property manager adjust the verbiage on the website or I predict more reviews such as this.

Owner's Response: I am not even sure where to begin as this is the first I have heard about any of this but I am shocked. This venue allows statements to be made in a public forum in which we (the owners) have no control over the statements validity or honesty. I am sorry that this guest was unhappy and she is obviously attempting to hurt our future rentals. But these accusations are not portrayed honestly. I personally talked to Tami on how to operate a 4 digit keyless entry. It is a simple operation and for some reason she could not figure it out. As for the boating rules,they were given all the boating rules and regulations for SPC in great detail by me and given their options. They were offered to park their boat behind our unit complementary or pay SPC for canal docking. They chose to park behind our unit but then later changed their minds and attempted to park in the canal without paying or going through SPC. This got them into trouble. Again, they were given written copies as well as a detailed explnation by me. We have electrical and fresh water wash down on the lower patio. I do not know how to respond to a blatant untrue statement. The one statement that is true is that the unit was not clean when they arrived. But our regular check in time is 4pm. They asked for an early check at noon which we gladly offered but told them that the cleaning company had between 11am-4pm to clean. We should have stuck to our policy. Painting is handled by SPC and not us and we were unaware of the painting schedule. I spoke with SPC painting manager and he said that the painters were on the patio for approx 2 hours. They removed our furniture that morning and then replaced it the next morning. The painting group does not get started until 8am per SPC management. The real matter at hand is the time line on which her deposit was returned. There was soled carpet after they left and it took an extra 3 days to get the carpet cleaned which held up their deposit. This upset them. Since they were from Memphis as we are we decided as a happy not to charge them for the carpet cleaning. We are proud that over the years our home has provided hundreds of families memorable and enjoyable vacations. I am sorry that the delay frustrated Tami to the point to write these malicious comments. My wife and I take our reputation and the comments made about our home very seriously. We hope that future guest will see the true intentions of her comments and accept it for what it is.
