Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2 week stay. Loved the size and location of the condo with balcony overlooking the canal. We loved to toss pieces of bread into the canal and watch the fish frenzy consuming it. It was very roomy for 4 adults and we found very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with all needed appliances, pots, spices, etc. The master bedroom was unusually large.

The included beach setup (2 chairs & umbrella) was much enjoyed as was Rick's Sand Trap for lunch and daiquiris. We also took advantage of the par 3 golf course (free, just need a putter and wedge as longest hole was 65 yards).

Michelle and Bruce were very accommodating and answered all our questions very quickly. Some minor improvements to consider...

- the 2nd bedroom twin beds had hard mattresses which one of our daughters found difficult to sleep on

- the clothes washer worked well but was very noisy

- we had three different upstairs neighbors during our two week stay and there isn't much sound proofing between the upper and lower unit

A rare gem in the heart of destin!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot believe how beautifully decorated this condo was. Absolutely gorgeous! It was so clean too! The owners made you feel right at home with plenty of sand toys, noodles, chairs, fishing poles, beach set ups, and so much more! The kitchen is stocked with everything you could need as well. We visited for the 4th of july, and my kids were so excited to be greeted with balloons, glow sticks, american flags, and other knick knacks to get us ready for celebrations. It goes to show how much the owners care, and I mean how sweet is that?! Such a wonderful surprise! Thank you guys for putting those smiles on my babies faces! Private beach access and pools are literally outside your door. Also, the restaurant is in walking distance, and it's amazing!! We were so relaxed! We enjoyed the movie selections, all the tvs, and cable! Our family also enjoyed watching the fish, crabs, and boats right outside on the patio. We love Destin, and go every year, and ALWAYS chose Sandpiper cove. We were so pleased with this unit. We will definitely be back! Unforgettable trip!! Thank you!!!

Very close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great for the 4 of us and had plenty of things for the beach in case you left something home. Its close to a pool and beach is within walking distance. The deck overlooks the canal which is great for morning coffee. Having the beach chair rental part of this rental was greatly appreciated. Good restaurants and grocery store are close by.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week at the Gathering Place. The condo was very clean and had everything you could think of and more. We enjoyed fishing right off the deck. The pool was great, favorite of our kids. The beach is an easy walk, and the chair and umbrella setup was awesome. If you are looking for a good place to eat we loved Harry T's, and Dewey's Destin Seafood. great food and service. The only issue was the noise from the upstairs condo, but that is to be expected.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at the Gathering Place. We strive to provide our guests with all the comforts of home. All 5 pools at Sandpiper Cove are wonderful and it is nice to have one so close by. We're glad you enjoyed the beach chairs and umbrella too. We agree that there are many great restaurants in Destin. Thanks for mentioning your favorites. We are sorry that the upstairs guests were noisy. Unfortunately that is beyond our control. We hope you will consider us again for your next stay in Destin.

Great Location, Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo. It was perfect for us being near the canal, harbor, golf course, and the tennis courts. We enjoyed our quick walk to the beach each day and somehow justified all the yummy food we ate while in Destin with our short walk. The condo is decorated nicely and is very well stocked both in the kitchen and with games and beach goods. It was great not having to bring the floats, beach chairs , and boogie boards. Sandpiper Cove is older than most but we love the two story units... no high rise elevators and not a million people in the pool or on the beach. We have been coming to Sandpiper Cove for almost 20 years and hope to keep visiting there. Thank you for sharing your condo with us.
