Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed late March/early April 2016.

Three Positives:

1.) Location: End unit, not far from the property gate with the (non-heated) pool right outside the unit and about a 5 minute walk to the beach.

2.) Tech: Excellent wi-fi access and cable TV. Although you may be planning on spending all your time at the beach or pool, when those gulf storms roll in you'll find yourself inside being thankful you have these amenities.

3.) Comfortable: Has many of the kitchen amenities you would look for (except salt and pepper... the only "food" items I would expect to be provided). The couch, chairs and bed all met expectations. Even the A/C worked great.

Three Negatives:

1.) Bathroom: As my wife said, "this seems a bit 'grotey'." It's not repulsive and we both showered in there, but it just felt like a room that needed a touch-up.

2.) Size: Though I think this is enough space for a cozy getaway for 2, I would not advise trying to get 4 adults in this space. Actually, I wouldn't even try doing 2 adults and 2 kids. That review isn't just for this unit, but for all studios at Sandpiper Cove. Unless you're REALLY CLOSE to 3 other people, I would stick to just 2 people in the studios at this property.

3.) Windows: In full disclosure this might not be a negative, it just might be that I wasn't able to figure out how to get them to work. Either way, we couldn't get the windows on the walls to open. It seemed like they had some sort of lock on them and I tried figuring them out but I didn't want to break anything. It would've been nice to enjoy more of the gulf breezes, but unless you opened the front and deck doors you were out of luck. Again, this may be user-error on my part, but I just wanted to put this out there.

Overall, I would recommend this unit in particular and Sandpiper Cove in general to anyone looking for a quiet gulf coast getaway.
