About Patrick Sweeney

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.

Patrick Sweeney purchased this condo in 2004

Why Patrick Sweeney chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Sandpiper Cove is so much more than just your typical High-rise on the beach. It is 43 acres in the best location on the gulf coast. It has the Gulf of Mexico on its south property line, and Destin harbor on it's west shoreline. Almost anything that you want to do on vacation can be done without even leaving the property.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

All of the guest comments for my condo since 2004 can be read at the condo website:

These are all hand written comments by my wonderful guests over the years that I have been renting this condo. I hope you can take the time to read them. I am very proud of this guestbook and appreciative to the people that took the time to share their thoughts and experiences.

Have a memorable vacation!

Amazing Time!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my husband and I went on vacation without our son and we couldn't have stayed in a better condo! It was so clean and decorated nicely. It had everything we needed and more. It was about a 5 minute walk to the beach and having the beach chairs and umbrella set up was very nice. We would definitely come back again!

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!!

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!
