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

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with this condo! Super clean and perfect for a couple. Convenient to the harbor and easy access to the beach. From the pools to beachside tiki bar this place was top notch. John was also super friendly and helpful with questions while arranging our stay. I would definitely stay here again the next time I visit Destin.

Great cozy space

  • 4 of 5

We were in Destin for spring break with our two kiddos, 5 and 3. The location of sandpiper cove and the unit can't be beat. You can walk for am coffee at a wonderful Italian cafe. The unit is super convenient to the beach, just about a 3 min walk from door to sand. you can even get a water taxi from the condos to the harbor.

The unit is super small. Worked okay for us, but heads up, it's small. It's one room with a Murphy bed and pull out sofa. The beds take up most of the space when pulled out. For the price, it was fair.

The unit could use some updating, which is the only deduction in stars. The sofa bed needs replacing, my kids could handle it, but no adult could really sleep on it in the state the old piece is in. The Murphy bed however was really comfortable and we got a good nights sleep. There's an old broken dresser in the closet you can't open, so no real place to unpack and because of the size, no place for suitcases.

I would recommend this place without hesitation for 2, but for 4, the sofa bed needs to be replaced first.

John was a joy to work with. Very responsive.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Great location, the beach was a short walk across the street! I was looking to spend a few days on the beach and this was the perfect fit. I walked to the beach, rented chairs/umbrella, and ate at the restaurant right on the beach. Nice relaxing stay.

Relaxing and I will return!

  • 4 of 5

I was looking for a last minute getaway to Destin for New Year's weekend and I lucked out in finding Unit 8104 and the owner, John. John contacted me as soon as I contacted him and he got me in on short notice. I have stayed at Sandpiper Cove before but really liked the location of this unit since it's right at the gate and a short walk across the street to the beach. The only negative was that the dunes are built up so you can't see the ocean, but they also own the unit upstairs so will try to rent that one next trip. I went by myself to get away and do some soul searching and this was the place. I had never stayed in a hotel/condo with a Murphy bed and I was highly impressed with the comfort of this bed. The size of the condo was perfect for me and would have been fine if I had my husband or a girlfriend with me. I am picky when it comes to showers and this shower was great! There was brand new carpet in the living room and new granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom. The unit is very clean and I will stay there again for sure, if I can't get their upstairs unit only to have a view of the ocean. John, Thanks for working with me on such short notice and I look forward to returning in hopefully a couple months.
