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: http://www.sandpipercove.info/5.html

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!



Sincerely,

Pat Sweeney

Condo was clean and up to date. All furniture and appliances were new.

  • 5 of 5

Location was great and close to everything. All amenities were very useful. The whole family really enjoyed everything that was provided. Your generosity and knowledge of the area made everything that much easier. I will definitely use this condo in the future.

Couldn't be happier

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed at this condo for an "Off the Grid" weekend and couldn't be happier with our experience. Mr. Sweeney was an absolute pleasure and very attentive in his communication. I've stayed in several condos and this was my third trip to Sand Piper Cove. I've never seen such a well stocked kitchen. They even had a crock pot! The bed was very comfortable and the condo was tastefully decorated. The full size washer and dryer was convenient and we saved $35 per day on beach service thanks to Mr. Sweeney's generosity of allowing his guests to use his service. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this condo is. We will most definitely return to this unit the next time we can escape on a couples only retreat!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at 1033 in May. Condo was clean and accommodating. We loved being on the golf course as opposed to beachfront. A lot less sand to track around! We visited with our 2 year old and baby gated (which was already in the condo) the back porch steps so she had more roaming freedom. We putted on the green off the back porch in the evening. Of course you can't beat the Destin beach and included beach service! Already booking our next trip!

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!!
