Overview

About the property

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



Jorge and Laura

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!!

Everything was great except the chairs...

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great, clean, and cozy! It was located at a very good spot, not on the beach but close enough. The only down side was I had to pay for sandpiper cove rental chairs on the beach that are shown in the picture. I really thought it would be inclusive. Outside of that evrything else was great.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in John's unit in April and it was wonderful. Everything was as expected and even better! The unit was less than a minute from the beach and had everything we needed to cook dinner every night. The community amenities were wonderful. We went to several of the pools, had snacks and drinks at the beach bar and my kiddo enjoyed walking down to see the boats at the marina. The weather was beautiful and we couldn't have been more happy with this trip! We will stay here again soon!

Very convenient to beach, nice studio apartment.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the nice studio condominium. It was across gulfshore drive from beach access. Ricks Sand Trap has the best blackened fish sandwich I have ever eaten. Secure location with gated access. Walking distance to any necessity. The only negative is the mattress on the Murphy bed could stand to be updated. If the mattress where improved I would give the condo a five. I will definitely stay with the Jones's again if it is available when I i make a return trip.

Reasonable but too small.

  • 2 of 5

I had made reservations for one of the owners studio condos on the bottom due to recent knee surgery. After arriving, the bottom unit was not ready and had to stay in the one on the second level. The bathroom floor has what I would say is a design flaw as it has two levels and is difficult to manage. We only stayed 2 of the 3 nights originally reserved due to a mishap. The owner refunded 2 nights and apologized for the miscommunication regarding the lower and upper unit reservation.

great location of nice little studio

  • 4 of 5

place is furnished nicely. after we got the wifi straightened out w/ the new password everything was great and john was super helpful. this place has all the dishes you need to do any cooking, plenty of linens as well and everything you need. The mattress on the murphy bed is extremely comfortable and the sofa sleeps so well for one there was no reason to pull it out. Not sure about the downstairs unit but we will definitely recommend #8205 to our friends. btw,,,the cute little golfcourse is awesome and there are 5 pools and 2 hot tubs. I wish i had brought my fishing tackle so i could have done a little bit of fishing too since the harbor goes right thru the place.
