About J.L. Franklin

Owners, JoAnne & Dick Welcome You

J.L. Franklin purchased this house in 2004

Why J.L. Franklin chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

When we bought our Villa, we looked at many different resorts in several different states before deciding on Sandestin. It offered a combination of location, amenities (beach, golf, restaurants, shopping) and beauty second to none that swept us off our feet. Sandpiper Village captivated us due to its warmth and openness and we were struck by the amount of open space surrounding the homes. This space makes Sandpiper one of the most family friendly neighborhoods in the resort with easy access to the amenities which are still just far enough away to preserve the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. Our kids and their families love the backyard area where they can play games while we sit on the patio watching with a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine. We know your family will have the same experiences.

What makes this house unique

We furnished our Villa with the idea that it would be a true vacation/beach home. With that in mind, we decorated in warm, bright colors that remind you constantly that you’re on vacation at the beach. It is very large for a two bedroom villa – larger than almost any other floor plan. The kids and grandkids love having the separate sunroom where they can watch their own TV or movies without the “grown-ups”, while the adults enjoy the huge adjacent living room. The home is well equipped so that even though you’re on vacation there won't be a lot you will be missing. We’re sure your family will enjoy our home as much as ours does!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi JL,

Well, I'm back at work after a fun-filled, action packed week on the beach! Sorry we didn't get to meet up with you, we were on the go from sun up to sun down.

We enjoyed our stay and the unit was lovely.

Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

We had an amazing week! The rental was very clean, the master bed slept like a dream, and the kitchen was beautiful and well equipped with everything you would need. The bicycles and golf cart were an added bonus that we will always have to have now! Thank you!

Lovely vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there with our two children and very much enjoyed the entire community. While the pools and beach were not very close to walk to, they were very accessible via the golf cart (which our kiddos thought was a hoot). The harbor area was great as well - adults can eat and kids can play! House included two bicycles and while my husband didn't use one, I did and appreciated that it was available. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time. The 2400 acres of the resort prevents everyone from being walking distance to the beach but we think the golf course setting is beautiful and the golf cart makes everything easy to get to. Hope to see you next year. Thanks for the great review.

Another GREAT stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this lovely home in Sandpiper Village. As usual, it was clean and equipped with everything needed before making a run to the grocery to stock all the other goodies you need for a wonderful week's stay! The inclusion of the golf cart this time was an added bonus! Sandpiper is so close to the beach, golf obviously, and restaurants of every kind. Loved it.

Great get away.

My wife and I spent nine days here enjoying this comfortable home and all the amenities that Sandestin offers. The home is furnished with everything you could possibly need which we really appreciated. We had one small issue and the property manager reponded to it immediately.

Nice home in Sandestin / Sandpiper!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed staying in this lovely home in Sandpiper. It's all on one level and is so very comfortable! We really enjoyed the home and would love to come back again! It's on the bayside of the resort, but close to everything that Sandestin has to offer!

Great remodeled home!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family of five (two adults, three kids) in this home for a week, and it was fantastic. It is located 5 mins from the beach and has a number of pools within a ten minute walk. the newly remodeled kitchen and master baths make the home something special. We heartily recommend it!
