Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy the 1,100 feet of private, powder-white sandy beach with crystal-clear, emerald waters. Our condo is newly furnished with a king-size bed in the master bedroom, double and twin beds in the guest room, granite counter tops in kitchen and both bathrooms and new kitchen cabinets. We are located on the Destin Harbor within Sandpiper Cove which offers a beautiful view of boats and evening sunsets from the rear balcony. Lower deck is 3 feet from the water and you can fish from this deck. Enjoy a three minute walk to the beach, or you can drive to within feet of the surf and sand, which offers a beach side grill, pavilion and beach chairs and umbrella.

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 features the famous Louisiana Lagniappe, a four-star restaurant. Amenities also include a complete kitchen, washer/dryer and linens, and a gas grill on the balcony. Sandpiper Cove is a gated community and is located near many excellent restaurants, shopping malls, water and amusement parks, and the Destin Harbor which offers pontoon boat and jet-ski rentals, dolphin and sunset cruises, deep-sea fishing trips, scuba and snorkeling trips, as well as many other family activities.

In addition to this two bedroom listing, we also have two studio units. Simply go to VRBO.com and search for those property numbers -- 40354 (downstairs unit) and 971262 (upstairs unit).

About John Jones

We enjoy Sandpiper Cove and the beautiful Gulf year round. We have a boat and a small Jack Russell dog. We all call Sandpiper Cove our favorite place. We have added a new flat screen TV, washer and dryer and a gas grill for the deck. While sitting on the deck you can watch the boats come in and out and see the sunset.

John Jones purchased this condo in 2005

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, 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 website 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, just drop your line in at the marina docks or go deep sea fishing, just 5 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family had a great time. The condo was clean and had everything that we needed. We did not see any oil on the beach or in the water. My wife is already talking about future trips.

Thanks,

Michael

Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed one night but it was a wonderful stay with excellent accommodations. The condo is well appointed and welcoming and the complex has very nice amenities. The rooms were large and furnishing comfortable. We walked to the Louisiana Lagniappe restaurant right past the pool. Easily one of the best restaurants in Destin so close! The view was awesome. We watched boats come and go and fish jump below us. We would definitely book again. Thanks for sharing your home!

AMAZING PROPERTY! GREAT VIEW! AWESOME OWNER!

  • 5 of 5

MY WIFE, SON AND I HAD A GREAT TIME AT THIS INCREDIBLE PROPERTY. THE VIEW WAS OUR MOST ENJOYABLE. THE CONDO WAS ALL WE COULD ASK FOR AND MORE. THE OWNER WAS VERY KIND AND COMMUNICATED WELL WITH US BEFORE OUR STAY AND DURING OUR STAY TO MAKE SURE ALL WAS ACCEPTABLE. THE UPDATED BATHROOMS ADDED A SPECIAL TOUCH. WE HAD 3 OTHER FAMILIES THAT WENT WITH US AND WE ALL WOULD GATHER AT OUR CONDO IN THE MORNINGS AND THE EVENINGS TO ENJOY THE BACK DECK AND THE VIEW. COFFEE IN THE MORNINGS AND DRINKS IN THE EVENING. THE LOCATION WAS IDEAL...STEPS AWAY FROM THE POOL...STEPS AWAY FROM THE WATER TAXI IN THE HARBOR...GOLF CART RIDE AWAY FROM THE BEACH. WE WILL FOR SURE RETURN TO THIS CONDO IN THE FUTURE. ABSOULTELY PERFECT!!!!

Family Friendly, Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We have two small children and a large family of cousins to go along with them. This place was perfect for two families to spend the weekend. It wasn't as busy as the beach high rise condos and the kids could wade into the water right in front of the condo (shoes required). It felt safe, secluded, but yet in the middle of exactly where you want to be as well. We were right next door to the pool and to the Louisiana Lagniappe restaurant, so we could walk to both within 100 yards. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a restful vacation in the destin area. We will definitely be staying there again.
