About Kathleen Mason


George and I are retired grandparents who use our vacation rental for our family vacations and rent to others for the balance of the year.

Kathleen Mason purchased this condo in 2003

Why Kathleen Mason chose Destin

We were looking for a vacation rental which would fit our family needs: 1) Affordable; 2) 24/7 security 3) Close beach access 4) Activities for kids and grown-ups 5) Close to vacation attractions. We found it all with our unit at Sandpiper Cove.

What makes this condo unique

A gated 43 acre condominium community with its own private access beach allows you to get out and walk or ride your bike without worrying about strangers and traffic.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Just wanted to say "thank you" for letting us use your wonderful home away from home. We had the best time and when it came time to go home on Sat. morning my 6 year old son just cried. I told him that we will definitely be coming back next year and I truly hope that we will be welcome to your beautiful condo again.

Again, thanks for the beautiful memories!!!

Wonderful Studio!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our visit to "Kay's Condo" and found it conveniently located to everything in Destin. The beach is gorgeous and Sandpiper Cove has lots of activities for all ages. We can't wait to return!

Our stay in Destin, FL

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Kay's condo. The condo is decorated very nicely and we had everything that we needed except for food. We loved Destin and my daughter and I did not want to come home. If you are considering visiting Destin please contact Ms Kay the price is very reasonable considering the rates of other places

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This condo was simply amazing. It was quaint and cute and perfect for our family of four. The condo was spotless and they thought of everything even the corkscrew that we forgot. It felt completely safe with the security guards. It definitely was like our home away from home. The owners were a pleasure to work with. We plan on making this our annual vacation spot!! We definitely highly recommend this rental!!

Paradise perfect

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at Kays condo. Our 1st time our youngest was 3 and being so close to the pool was perfect because she was scared of the "big water". She is now 10 and loves being able to walk around d the gated community. The guards at the entrance always make us feel welcomed. The condo itself is stocked with everything we need. Just bring a beach towel and a swimsuit!

Dated but comfy

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here with our 3 small children for Fall break. This condo is very dated, with an old 80's couch and decor. It was the perfect location to the beautiful beach, restaurants, and shopping. This is a 1 room studio with a Murphy bed and pull-out couch. It is very cramped for more than two people. The owners were very sweet and easily accessible.

Owner's Response: We rent our condo to other families when we are not there with our grandchildren. The decor is "beach house" thus the pastels and Caribbean flower print on the couch and love seat. The couch is not from the 80s only the color and pattern; inside is a new bed frame and mattress. Please look at the photos with this listing as this is what you will see upon arriving. Nothing fancy just a beach retreat. Our condo is a studio, with two queen size beds, that sleeps four. We have catered to couples and young families since 2004. Julie from Evansville found the condo perfect for her family of four and is returning again in 2016. Julie from Memphis found the condo too small for her family of five. It may be better if we only rent to families of 4 or less.
