Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

MOST DESIRABLE LOCATION of any studio at Sandpiper Cove. Enjoy the 1100 feet of private powder white sand beach with crystal clear emerald waters. Condo is newly furnished with free wireless internet, new flat screen TV, CD/DVD, VCR, granite counter tops in kitchen and bathroom and located right across the street from the Gulf of Mexico with a partial view of the beach from the patio.

I have 2 studio condos, one on the first floor, unit 8104 and the other just over it on the 2nd floor, unit 8205. Both are basically the same, nicely furnished and in great shape. Depending on availability, let me know if you want the 1st floor or 2nd floor.

Sandpiper Cove Resort consists of 43 beautifully landscaped acres in the heart of Destin, which includes a free nine hole par three golf course, boat launching ramp and docking for boats and jet-skis, five pools, three hot tubes, six tennis courts, and also the famous Louisiana Lagniappe, a four-Star restaurant. Sandpiper Cove is a gated community located near many excellent restaurants, shopping malls, water and amusement parks, and the Destin Harbor which offers pontoon boat and jet-ski rentals, and Dolphin and sunset cruises, deep-sea fishing trips, scuba and snorkelling trips, as well as many other family activities. A swimming pool is right out the front door and the beach just across the street.

About John Jones

We enjoy Sandpiper Cove and the beautiful Gulf year round. We have a boat and two small Jack Russell dogs and we all call Sandpiper Cove our favorite place to go.

John Jones purchased this condo in 2003

Why John Jones chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Sandpiper Cove has it all. The most beautiful beach with 1,100 feet of crystal white sand, full beach service, emerald blue water, 43 acres, 5 pools to chose from, a par 3 nine hole golf course that is free to guests, and a great restaurant, marina and docking for my boat. My condo has free high speed internet WiFi and all the things needed for a great vacation. You can go to the Sandpiper Cove web site to see the complex and what we have to offer,

What makes this condo unique

In addition to all the great things at Sandpiper Cove, you are in the heart of Destin FL. Restaurants, shopping, fishing, water sports and much more just minutes away. There is so much to do at Sandpiper Cove sometimes it is hard to leave. If you want to fish you can drop a line in from the marina docks or go deep sea fishing, just 5 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi John,

We got home last night. We spent a wonderful week in Destin. The beach was a dream. When we arrived we couldn't believe ourselves how close the condo was to the beach. Your place was cleaned and in good shape, the security at the gate let us in right away. The space was a fit for us.

Now that we had a feel for Destin we hope we can stay in your condo next time.

We keep in touch

Wonderful honeymoon experience perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and nice, very impressed with the murphy bed. Never used one before now, but expected it to be like a hidabed and it was actually much more than that. Very comfy not too firm not too soft. Everything was very convinient, can see small portion of the ocean from the balcony, just a short walk across the street for walks on the beach, laundry room and pool right outside, i plan to bring my family back soon, the price was totally reasonable and a lovely little cottage. Bathroom has a huge tub! Local attractions within 1-3 miles away depending on what all u want to do. Too many activities to choose from! Quiet community, very friendly ppl, this place is a five star for sure, we wud b honored to come back, john was so nice and easy to work with and had excellent communication the whole time. Loved all of it!!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be back. Took my husband on a surprise birthday trip to Destin and we stayed at unit 8205. The condo was perfect for us. It was cozy, the bed was very comfortable, the unit was clean and had everything we needed (make sure you have your own beach towels ;) ) I would love to go back with our children and we hope to plan to do so next year. Thank you John for your help and letting us rent your condo. Until next time :)

Charming little studio across from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. You can walk from the apartment to the beach, all you have to do is literally cross the street. Destin is a nice little town and we loved it there.

Very nice condo. Close to everything. Minutes walk to the beach. Clean, quiet, and affordable.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean and the property well taken care of. Everyone was so nice and helpful. We were minutes from the beach, shopping, and restaurants. It was so nice not having to drive to a public beach and fight the crowd. We could just walk across the street to a private beach. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Very affordable. Can't wait to go back.

My husband and I stayed for our honeymoon and it was perfect! Quiet and so clean with all the amenities we could've asked for - even coffee and filters in the cabinet! Just across the street from the beach and within 5 miles of anything we could have needed!
