Owner loves the fact that only at Sandpiper Cove can one enjoy the harbor/canal, private gated beach, great dinning, and golf in one resort. Owner's other vacation property was featured in Southern Living Magazine. Therefore, owner takes great effort to provide a unique upgraded atmosphere in this vacation property.

Why The Owner chose Holiday Isle

This unit has upgrades and views that are rare. It rests on saltwater boating canal. Teeming with boats, fish, and birds, it has commanding views of multiple holes of the golf course. Being a second floor unit, views of golfers, boaters, and wildlife is enchanting. Easy stroll to private beach, four star restaurant, tennis, 5 pools, and other amenities.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is in the middle of everything at Sandpiper Cove. Short stroll to all amenities. Sit on high end balcony furniture sipping a drink looking over boating, fish, wildlife, and golfers. Then get up, cut off the 42 inch LCD and take a short stroll to beach, dinning, golf, pools, hot tub, or boat ramp. Stroll up and down the harbor district taking it all in.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here in sandpiper cove. This condo is very nicely decorated and is equipped with most things you need. There are plenty of towels, the kitchen has everything you need. It is a short walk to the beach, about 5 minutes. The owner is very responsive and provides his cell number for you if you need to contact him. The air conditioner stopped working the day we were leaving and he had someone out within just a few hours. The only one complaint we had was we wish there were some beach toys, floats, chairs, etc. Since we did fly and weren't able to bring those items. But, we had a great time and will definitely return! Thank you for providing our family with a great place typ stay to enjoy our annual beach vacation.

Owner's Response: Really glad the nice decor and furnishings are appreciated. Also really glad that our efforts to be responsive and personable is appreciated. Really appreciate these folks will be returning and was impressed with the quality stocked items such as towels etc.... In regards to furnishing toys and floats, different renters want different toys and floats according to their taste and kids ages etc.... While we have tried to have floats and beach toys, they end up getting punctured, stolen, etc.... There are so many cheap beach supply shops surrounding the resort we encourage vacationers to treat themselves to what they want. Another problem having beach toys and items in the unit is the MOUNTAIN of sand that gets in the condo making it difficult to maintain in a clean comfortable state. There are also beach chairs and toys for rent for a great price on the private beach.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the unit for the entire month of June 2018. The beach we very close and was absolutely beautiful, clear water and white sands. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly and responded immediately. The unit was nicely decorated and clean. We were very comfortable but did notice that the unit needed some maintenance done, caulking was cracked in both bathrooms and painting in some areas needed to be better detailed and repaired, & one fire monitor was buzzing.

I sent the owner the items that needed attention as a courtesy.

The greatest challenge in the area is the traffic. It is horrible most of the time.

Government has been slow to respond to the higher traffic in the area.

Thanks for a great stay.

Thank you for sharing your lovely beach home.Great experience.

  • 5 of 5

This unit is our favorite in Sandpiper. Destin is a great place to spend a vacation with family. We loved the security of being in a gated community. The beach was beautiful and easy to access. We liked the fact this portion of the beach was not too crowded even at peak season. We also loved the location which is close to shopping, activities and good food. The free golf course is a great benefit. We found the unit to be very clean, fresh smelling and in good repair. The kitchen was well equipped and all appliances worked as expected. The air unit provided a cool retreat from the beach. The beds were comfortable and plenty of linens and towels were provided. Parking was right in front of the unit.

We found the price to be very competitive with other units. The owner was easy to contact and answered all of our questions. He was very friendly and a great source of local information. Check out was easy.
