About the Owner

This is our only vacation property.

My wife and I purchased the condo in January 2004 hoping that we could afford it, and to make some great childhood memories for our children who were then 8 and 5 years old. We have vacationed at Sandpiper Cove since 1989. Sandpiper Cove has always been a special place for us and we have never regretted our decision.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely perfect experience from beginning to end with the Sweeney's Condo. It is beautifully decorated, and had everything needed to spend the week there. I love the attention to detail, from the water toys to the sound system, and thoroughly enjoyed having a washer and dryer! My boys (8 & 4) loved playing golf every morning while we got ready for the beach! After hours at the beach we would come back to the pool that is right out the front door. We ended up meeting a family that was renting the condo next door and couldn't have had a better time at Sand Piper Cove. We will definitely be renting this one again. Thank you for sharing your home with our family!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed staying at our place. This sounds very much like the family vacations that we had when my kids were young. They seemed to make new friends each year playing on the docks and golf course in the evening. Thank you for the review it is very much appreciated!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to destin and it was amazing! Sandpiper is a great condo area with a beautiful private beach! Quite great for couples and families as well. Plus destin has tons of fun things to do. Ricks sand trap on the beach has the best fish sandwiches and tacos I've ever had! Will definitely be back

It was very clean, modern, and well decorated.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect. It was very well maintained, clean, modern with the amenities that we needed (wireless internet). The setting was beautiful and we felt safe in a gated community. It was great having beach service. The restaurant within the complex was also wonderful. We will definitely be making plans to stay here next October.

Awesome Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This property ended up being the perfect condo for my family of four to stay in. The listing was very accurate for amenities and layout of the condo. The property was very clean when we arrived. We have a 7 year old and a 4 year old son and the pullout couch was perfect for them. The laundry access was very helpful for the week as well. I know a lot of condos don't have that. The boys loved going out and hitting the golf ball around on the 8th hole out the back door. We had a couple meals on the back porch as the October weather was gorgeous. The boys also loved using the nets and boogie boards at the Sand Piper Cove private beach. The beach was about a 10 minute slow walk while our youngest rode his bike. You can also drive and park over there as well, which was nice to go do after dinner to watch the sunset. As nice as the condo was, working with Patrick to book and handle everything was awesome. Good guy! We would stay here again for sure. We would also recommend this condo.

If I had any recommendations, (not against the condo), but I think there should be smoking and non smoking sections of the beach. Not a fan of people sitting right beside my kids while they smoke.

Thanks Patrick!

We have stayed in this condo at least 4 or 5 times. We love it! It has everything you need. I cook a lot on vacation and the kitchen has everything you need. The owners of this condo are the nicest people going. They are very helpful and answers all your questions. This last stay was just perfect but something came up the very last night of our week for us that was pretty tramatic, and had absolutely nothing to do with the perfect condo; the owner made what was a horrible time for us less stressful by their care and understanding. I could go on and on! Our daughter loves loves this place too! You will not be disappointed!!! Promise:)

From the Owner

There is a sense of security at sandpiper created by the white privacy fence that surrounds the entire 43 acres. There is only the main gate to check in at, and courtesy patrols are 24/7. The buildings are separated by green lawns and tropical plantings. With no lobbies to come and go through, your children can play nearby while you grill on your deck... and that is my perfect dinner plan in Destin! Whether it is quiet time on the beach or catching fish in the canal. There is always something to do with all of the space and amenities at Sandpiper Cove.
