Bedrooms Studio
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

Why stay in a hotel room?

We've just completed the renovation of our studio with a detailed touch! Granite counters in the fully equiped kitchen and bath. A fold out space saving Murphy bed with a new full mattress. The living area includes a new 37' LCD TV and a new queen sofa sleeper with a Seally posturepedic mattress.




The second floor condo has a great center view of the pool, oceanview from the front balcony and a short walk to the gated access beach and Emerald gulf waters. Unlike a first floor unit, no noise from above.

Sandpiper Cove amenities include 5 swimming pools (2 heated), (3) hot tubs, a free 9 hole par 3 golf course, 6 tennis courts and marina/canal boat docking. The popular Louisiana Lagniappe restaurant is waterside by the marina. We're close to everything Destin has to offer.

We wanted a mini vacation without spending a fortune for our family of four and were hesitant to book a studio, but decided to give it a shot. We are so glad we did. The unit had plenty of room for us. The kitchen was well equipped, and the unit was very clean. The location was great with our room overlooking the pool and the beach being right across the street. Even for the July 4th weekend, we never felt crowded. The owners are great to work with. I would most definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful time. The location of the property to the pool and gulf was perfect.

The condo was just the right size for the two of us. Can't wait to go back.

Ok for the cost.

  • 3 of 5

Condo was what I expected for the cost, but it was not as clean as I would have expected. The floors were covered in sand when we arrived. The bathtub had not been cleaned for awhile. The bed was very, very firm and the bed linens need to be replaced, as they are stained and pilled. Because it is a Murphy bed, it is also very short. The fancy counter tops are nice, but, I would much prefer a comfortable bed and a clean and well maintained bathtub and shower head. I found it hard to work with April. I asked for information a few days before our check in because we would be traveling, and would have limited access to email. We did not receive any information until about 1 hour before check in. We did not receive any information in regards to the complex. We tried to get info from security, but the security guard was new, and did not know anything. It took us about an hour just to find out how to open the gate to get to the beach. The restaurant in the complex is wonderful, and the pool was clean and the pool furniture was well maintained. The beach is beautiful.

Great Family Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a family vacation with four of us. April was great to work with and responded to my e-mails in a timley manner. Sandpiper Cover is a condo community and isnt your rowdy resort crowd which is what we wanted to avoid. Maybe it was because it was off season but everyone was very friendly including the security guards at the gate who do a great job checking everyone who came through so felt very safe. The grounds came with 5 swimming pools but we spent most of our time at the one pool right below the balcony which was nice because we could watch the kids swim from the balcony. The condo was just right for the 4 of us and we never felt to crowded. Kitchen was nice and came with all the cooking supplies you would need. I might recommend some dish towels as we didnt have any on our visit but other than that great condo and will definatly stay here again!

Cozy studio 200 yards from beach

  • 4 of 5

Love this place for my wife and I, 4th year we have stayed. Great for couples that relax together. Reasonable priced within Piper Cove condos with kichenette that has everything one needs. Clean and convenient. WiFi is my only upgrade I recommend to owners.

Sadly, unable to recommend.

  • 2 of 5

It has great potential but cannot recommend after our experience.

Positives: Friendly security staff. The location. Beach access. Snack bar at beach w/restrooms and wash stations. Bath towels smelled lovely. Quiet location. Comfortable Murphy bed. Ample shelving/drawer space. Portions of the condo have been renovated. Price.

Negatives: Lack of cleanliness. Sand left around tub ledges. Long dark hairs left in bathroom drawer. Food chunks left in kitchen sink strainer. Dirty pull out mattress with bits of crud along mattress seams (yes, I took pictures). Mattress only fit for small children/anyone who wants a metal bar for sleeping buddy. Insufficient bedding: 3 pillowcases for 6 pillows; blankets were thin cotton type used under a comforter.

I notified owner of the above in writing. I was told in a phone conversation with the husband that he didn't understand what the problem was; that what I needed to do was to stop interrogating their condo and get a six pack and get to the beach. He was rude and insulting. No attempt was made to address any issue.

My email address associated with reservation was changed (only owner can do this) to avoid contact. Finally got response stating “You and your friend damaged lots of towels in the condo with your makeup or something else? Towels were bleached and the stains did not come out. Also, you all checked in at 3:45 in my condo, there is no early check-in at the condo and there is a charge for that. Will advice you as soon as I speak to security and the housekeeper.” If owner doesn't want the white wash cloths used, I'd advise providing different cloths. Check-in time is 4pm but no mention in property details about charge for 15 minute early check-in. I didn't note when we exactly drove up to the security shack. I'd taken an overnight flight to Pensacola from Seattle, my friend a morning flight from Tulsa, then we drove to Destin.

It's now the end of July and damage deposit hasn't been returned. Above is a fair and honest assessment (further details left out for lack of space). The uncleanliness and dealings with owner are the only dark spots in an otherwise sunny vacation. If you choose to stay at this property, please learn from my mistake and purchase the Carefree Rental Guarantee or some such trip protection. VRBO also recommended having a rental agreement in place. Hopefully the property owner will take note and have the condo in a better state for future vacationers.

Our newly renovated condo is in the heart of Destin and is within walking distance or a short drive to the fine restaurants. The Harborwalk shopping and entertainment area is a 5 minute drive, and the 1,100 foot gated private beach/beachside grill is accross the street.
