About The Owner

Owner is South Georgia attorney and judge who loves the resort amenities and beauty of Sandpiper Cove. Owner loves the fact that only at Sandpiper Cove can one enjoy the harbor/canal, private gated beach, great dinning, and golf in one resort. Owner's other vacation property was featured in Southern Living Magazine. Therefore, owner takes great effort to provide a unique upgraded atmosphere in this vacation property.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

This unit has upgrades and views that are rare. It rests on saltwater boating canal. Teeming with boats, fish, and birds, it has commanding views of multiple holes of the golf course. Being a second floor unit, views of golfers, boaters, and wildlife is enchanting. Easy stroll to private beach, four star restaurant, tennis, 5 pools, and other amenities.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is in the middle of everything at Sandpiper Cove. Short stroll to all amenities. Sit on high end balcony furniture sipping a drink looking over boating, fish, wildlife, and golfers. Then get up, cut off the 42 inch LCD and take a short stroll to beach, dinning, golf, pools, hot tub, or boat ramp. Stroll up and down the harbor district taking it all in.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a little issue getting checked in because I did not have an email from owner, but guard shack let us have a pass anyway until they were able to reach him, which was just a few minutes. The condo was very clean. We had 4 adults in our group and had plenty of room. We took our bikes and rode to the beach daily, new rule this year no canopies however the chair rental company gave us two umbrellas for the day. The following days they were even kind enough to drill holes for the ones we purchased. Bring cash, you can rent kayaks, paddle board and the food hut only takes cash. Would definitely stay in this condo again.

Owner's Response: Very nice people who we enjoyed meeting. Unbenounst to us they for some reason did not have email with check in info that was sent prior to arrival. Upon arrival we got call from guard and they were set for a great week. Thanks for allowing us to share our family home away from home.

Great Condo. Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at Sandpiper Cove! It was our first time to Destin and we would definitely stay here again! The condo was great and the owners were great! My boys spent their days on the golf course and loved every minute of it! The only suggestion I would make is while there are plenty of dishes in the condo, enough for 7, there really wasn't a skillet big enough to cook for the 6 people I needed to. So with that said, I bought myself a cook top grill/griddle that worked great and turns out I love using it at home as well. By no means was I upset about that. I assessed the dishes before shopping and knew what I needed. If you don't want to buy a pan, you might consider bringing one from home if you plan on cooking allot during your stay. We will come back to Sandpiper Cove and I would contact David's family again to see if his condo is available for sure! Thank you again David! We enjoyed our stay! The Youngs!

Owner's Response: Lovely family. Appreciate this independent 5 STAR Rating. Glad they had such a great time and enjoyed our condo that we have worked so hard to make top end. It was a pleasure getting to know this family and look forward to their return. In regards to cookware, we agree that there are enough dishes etc... for a two bedroom condo. We offer standard size cookware for our standard size stove. Stocking any larger grills or hotplates that could be knocked or pulled down and pose a hazard to renters is something we are not able to do due to safety considerations. We look forward to this great family's return.

Our best vacation!

  • 5 of 5

we loved this place. We loved the cutest condo that overlooks a panoramic view of canal waterfront and well manicured golf course. We loved walking up the canal boardwalk to the harbor, watching the boats, birds, and fish.

Three minute walk to our own paradise private beach was a dream. Located in the middle of everything. The harbor was awesome.
