Needs repairs!

  • 2 of 5

The AC said 68 degrees the entire time we were there but never really cooled down. The sliding doors for the balcony are almost impossible to open. When you try to open the blinds they do not work and the Windows have this frost stuff on them so you cannot see out. And there is no glass/screen door so you are basically stuck in the dark. We have stayed at sandpiper cove for over 20 years and this was our worse experience.

Owner's Response: It's unfortunate to see a guest take the time to post a negative review but not take the time to contact the owner to report their issues. Many of these issues could have been resolved with a phone call. After a season of guests, sand gets trapped in the sliding glass door and the door can come off the track. This could have been quickly resolved. Further, there are lights to the deck. The switch can be found behind the taller of the two dressers and the light illuminates the deck at night, and, there IS a sliding screen door. A phone call could have provided this guest with guidance and instructions, which could have gone a long way to rectifying these issues. There had been no cooling problems reported regarding the A/C, not by this guest, or those prior. In fact, prior guests left favorable reviews. If the air is cooling as it should when the unit is checked, it is very difficult to resolve any repair issues if their are no problems reported. As for the blinds, again no reports of problems. If this guest informed the owner, these standard sized plantation blinds could have quickly been replaced or repaired. It's ironic that prior guests leave positive reviews and this guest claims worst experience. I, myself, have stayed in many Sandpiper units, from studios, to 1, 2, and 3 bedroom units on the beach. I know for a fact that this unit stands above many in decor, cleanliness, and price. Every season there is normal wear and tear to vacation rentals and each year, at the end of the season, repairs take place. This year, like all prior, the unit will be gone through to address any issue that might inconvenience a future guest, and any repairs that are needed will be dealt with. Given the chance, I have made repairs for guests, however it's important that I'm informed, so I know what requires attention.

Cute and clean condo.

  • 4 of 5

Well kept condo. Small in size but got the job done. Great area although not beach front but about a 2 minute walk across a small street. Would definitely stay again and recommend it.

Excellent Beach View Property

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for a weekend getaway and its proximity to everything made our stay more enjoyable. Elaine was very responsive from the beginning. The condo has a nice view of the beach and the beach is one of the nicest ones I have been to. The condo is fully equipped right from kitchen utensils to linens. It was definitely worth the price. One of the best vacations I've had. If i go back, I would definitely rent from Elaine again.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

I was unsure about booking this studio due to it not going through a booking website and I paid Elaine directly. I'm glad I did because you avoid all of these extra fees that booking websites tack on and we got a great deal on the condo. Communication with Elaine was great and prompt. The studio was the perfect size for my family of three. You can see the ocean from the back deck and the walk to the beach was a breeze!! There is a pool and laundry right outside of the condo and you are centrally located in Destin. There is a Target and Winn Dixie across the street. I recommend Winn Dixie, they weren't half as busy as Walmart and the prices were great. The snack bar on the beach is a great addition. The prices are reasonable (cash only) and the food was always cooked when it was ordered. If you plan to cook you might want to bring some plastic ware for leftovers. Other than that we had a great trip and look forward to coming back!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

I was a bit nervous renting a unit from someone I've never spoken to, but Elaine replied to all of my emails quickly and answered all of my questions. She made me feel comfortable. I did speak to Elaine before my family came down from Atlanta, GA and I knew then that I really had nothing to worry about. The pictures online does the studio no justice. When We arrived our unit was beautifully decorated and clean which was a huge plus. Appliances were tidy and looked new. Elaine made sure we had fresh linens, plenty of towels, and bed sheets. We had a great time and hope to come back. Elaine provided us with a list of places to go and eat and things to do. Although the property was near everything, it's best to have a car in Destin. Hope to be back very soon. Thank you, Elaine!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the positive review. I try to keep the unit as if I was living there myself and as clean as I would like to have it if I were paying for a vacation stay. It used to be my home and I like to keep that way. Please come back again. Always remind me that you have been a previous guest so that I can offer rates at a discounted rate. Best regards and thanks again for the kind words.

Nice Vacation

  • 4 of 5

I must say we really enjoyed our vacation! I was a little hesitant at first because initially, email was the only form of communication I had with the owner, but once I was able to talk to her, she did give me a contact number. Since we were coming from Texas, I asked if we would be able to check in early and she arranged it so that we were able to. The owner gave us a great deal! The unit was clean, well maintained, had all of the comforts of home and the neighborhood was quiet. Everyone we met was friendly. It was across the street from the beach. MANY things within walking distance. There was a Target and Wal-Mart close by. This had to be one of the BEST vacations I've had in a long time! The owner was always responsive durning our stay. Very affordable. Worth the trip!
