About J.L. Franklin

Owners, JoAnne & Dick Welcome You

J.L. Franklin purchased this house in 2004

Why J.L. Franklin chose Sandestin

When we bought our Villa, we looked at many different resorts in several different states before deciding on Sandestin. It offered a combination of location, amenities (beach, golf, restaurants, shopping) and beauty second to none that swept us off our feet. Sandpiper Village captivated us due to its warmth and openness and we were struck by the amount of open space surrounding the homes. This space makes Sandpiper one of the most family friendly neighborhoods in the resort with easy access to the amenities which are still just far enough away to preserve the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. Our kids and their families love the backyard area where they can play games while we sit on the patio watching with a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine. We know your family will have the same experiences.

What makes this house unique

We furnished our Villa with the idea that it would be a true vacation/beach home. With that in mind, we decorated in warm, bright colors that remind you constantly that you’re on vacation at the beach. It is very large for a two bedroom villa – larger than almost any other floor plan. The kids and grandkids love having the separate sunroom where they can watch their own TV or movies without the “grown-ups”, while the adults enjoy the huge adjacent living room. The home is well equipped so that even though you’re on vacation there won't be a lot you will be missing. We’re sure your family will enjoy our home as much as ours does!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi JL,

Well, I'm back at work after a fun-filled, action packed week on the beach! Sorry we didn't get to meet up with you, we were on the go from sun up to sun down.

We enjoyed our stay and the unit was lovely.

Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

Great location, brand new kitchen, fun golf cart.

  • 4 of 5

Loved that we were in a quiet neighborhood but short golf cart ride to activities and beach. House was comfortable, clean and kitchen was new and upgraded. Golf cart was a hit with the kids. Comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. Bright home with lots of natural light. Front screen porch was perfect drop zone for shoes and beach stuff. Nice large washer/dryer. Only slight knock was it might be due for new rug in sunroom and new carpet in family room, but that's probably me being picky.

Good needs to be cleaned better

  • 4 of 5

Bedding needs to be replaced and floors and base boards need to be cleaned

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. We will pass it onto the owners and housekeepers. Linens are replaced yearly. I am assuming you are referring to the actual mattresses which are very soft by owner choice.

Amazing, relaxing close to everything vacation

  • 5 of 5

Your villa was so amazing. Everything was exactly as the pictures showed. The property inside and out was so clean and well maintained. The inside is decorated so beautifully and the villa had everything you needed. Loved the beach towels and the 2 bathrooms, especially the master shower-so great. Loved the beach towels too, such a nice extra. We loved using the golf cart. We had a slight problem with it in the beginning but the manager took care of it immediately. We went to Baytowne Wharf almost every night. The beach was so beautiful and the water so warm. Loved the chairs and umbrella's too. In the middle of our vacation, we had a storm and we couldn't go in the water for 2 days and had alot of rain but we were still able to use both pools in the early AM and evening. The outlets were so great and close by. Loved Travina, the restaurant on Grand Boulevard. Loved Captain Dave's too. Donut Hole was really good too but long lines so get there early. We loved just riding around in the golf cart and looking at the beautiful resort. So many walking bridges to take beautiful pictures. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful villa. We loved Sandpiper the best. Just enough privacy and its quiet so perfect for families or anyone looking to be a away from the busy areas but yet just hop in the golf cart and there you are. We look forward to a time when we can come back.

We had an amazing week! The rental was very clean, the master bed slept like a dream, and the kitchen was beautiful and well equipped with everything you would need. The bicycles and golf cart were an added bonus that we will always have to have now! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review. You all looked like you were having a good trip. You left the house in such good shape I could have almost cancelled the cleaners. Hope to see you again next year.

Lovely vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there with our two children and very much enjoyed the entire community. While the pools and beach were not very close to walk to, they were very accessible via the golf cart (which our kiddos thought was a hoot). The harbor area was great as well - adults can eat and kids can play! House included two bicycles and while my husband didn't use one, I did and appreciated that it was available. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time. The 2400 acres of the resort prevents everyone from being walking distance to the beach but we think the golf course setting is beautiful and the golf cart makes everything easy to get to. Hope to see you next year. Thanks for the great review.

Another GREAT stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this lovely home in Sandpiper Village. As usual, it was clean and equipped with everything needed before making a run to the grocery to stock all the other goodies you need for a wonderful week's stay! The inclusion of the golf cart this time was an added bonus! Sandpiper is so close to the beach, golf obviously, and restaurants of every kind. Loved it.
