Overview

Emerald Coast-Destin Area 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



Regards

Perfect condo for two

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were extremely pleased with this condo! The location is perfect - right across the street from the beach, and an easy drive to the attractions on Hwy 98. Everything was clean and comfortable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful Stay in DESTIN

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the condo (property 40354) for Jun 24, 2016 - Jun 26, 2016. It was overall a great stay... the proximity to the beach was great... and with the snack bar and rentals (umbrellas and chairs and more) it was great. John the owner was great with communication and any concerns were taken care of immediately... I would have given the condo 5 stars if it wasn't for the loud neighbors for the two nights we were there... but even with that... we will definitely stay again.... Thank you for everything John.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Condo was in a great location, just to the right of the entrance/security gate. The laundry room and a large pool was directly in front of the condo. A road was behind the condo. There was some road noise at night but nothing too bad. The security people were super nice and helpful. Answered several questions for us throughout the week. The tennis courts were in great shape and the water with the fountain was just beautiful. You literally walked out the front gate and across the road and you are at the ocean. There was a place you walked by to get to the beach that sold drinks, food and rented chairs and umbrellas. Condo was very clean. Once you passed the end of our condos and before you reached the front gate there was a sewer smell that we noticed when ever we passed this spot. Again, this didn't bother us because we were just passing through. No smell was noticed in or near our condo. The front door did stick and we had to shove a little to get it opened but it worked fine. There were two outlets - one beside the wicker shelves and one to the right of the murphy bed that did not have outlet covers on them. My children are older and knew not to mess with these but it would be a danger to younger children. The sofa bed was not comfortable at all for my older children. It definitely needs a new mattress. The murphy bed was comfortable but a little loud with any movement. The kitchen was stocked with all things needed to mix meals with. The bathroom was amazing. It had a large, deep tub and the shower was awesome. We never had a problem with having enough hot water. The condo was very quiet until new people moved into the condo above us halfway through our week. They had way too many people in there and had a couple of children that ran constantly. It sounded like they were coming through the ceiling. When they set their beds up at night it sounded like they just dropped them on the floor. Since we were gone through the day this only bothered us at night. They definitely didn't not follow the 10pm quiet time! The wifi did not work and my daughter called John about it. We tried several things over the phone before he called a friend to come over and check it for us. That man was very nice and helpful but still didn't get the problem solved. I finally got us connected to the upstairs wifi and it worked great after that. John was great to work with and answered all our questions in a timely manner. Would stay here again.
