About Lisa Van Zelst

Our two girls enjoying a day at the beach!

Lisa Van Zelst purchased this condo in 2003

Why Lisa Van Zelst chose Florida North West

We bought at SPC because it is a unique complex that we fell in love with. Our condo is our little piece of paradise.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy all the amenities at SPC. The beach, pools, watching the ducks, fish and boats from our terrace as well as the awesome sunsets. One of our favorite things is taking walks on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Lisa,

We had a wonderful 3 day weekend. The weather was perfect. My husband caught a 12 lb. red snapper and we LOVED your condo!!!! I think it was the nicest one we've ever stayed in! The beach chairs & umbrella were

great and we all really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you so much for letting us stay there. Maybe we can do it again???

Thanks so much!!! Melissa Treat

This was the second time my daughter and I stayed at Sandpiper Cove 4204. It is my favorite place to stay in Destin. The area is in perfect location to everything. It's within a few miles of shopping but has privacy without all of the hustle and bustle of the area. Most importantly, the condo itself is clean, decorated very well and has all the amenities necessary for a great weeks stay! This is our go to spot when it is just the 2 of us! Thanks again Lisa for taking such good care of us!!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This Sandpiper Cove condo is absolutely beautiful and CLEAN. It had everything we needed for our week there. The owner was nice to leave us a chilled bottle of wine in the refrigerator. The condo is nicely updated and exactly as described in the listing. We love the Destin area in the winter and hope to return again.

Awesome Canal Front Condo!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here from October 10th through the 14th. I only wish we could have stayed longer. The condo was beautifully furnished and very well stocked with everything we needed. The chilled bottle of wine waiting for our arrival was a very thoughtful touch. We loved having the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella set up for us each day. My husband was so excited when he caught several fish out of the canal. Security was very friendly and accommodating. Lisa was amazing to work with. My parents came to visit one day and my father hasn't stopped talking about this condo and how tastefully it was decorated and how clean and convenient it was. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay. We cannot wait to come back and my parents cannot wait to book their next vacation there, as well.

The unit is very convenient to the pool. Lots of amenities on site! Husband and son enjoyed the free golf. We had to leave early and quickly but the owner mailed us some items we left behind! Enjoyed the view on the canal.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Quite simply, a fantastic place to stay. Sandpiper Cove is very cool, very laid back, the staff is friendly and the grounds are well kept. My five year old son caught his first fish right out of the canal the balcony overlooks, and the quick walk to the beach is a no brainer (Lisa has a cart stashed outside for you to tote your stuff) – isn’t life grand? Everything you need for a comfy stay is already in the condo, and groceries are roughly a half mile away. Beach supply ‘Quick Shops’ are even closer, so don’t bother worrying about what you forgot to pack.



I will say this to first time renters … Lisa keeps her condo immaculate. Scroll through the comments and you’ll see nothing but five stars and a ton of compliments about cleanliness. I suggest you keep it that way lest I hunt you down and spank you for your insolence!



Jokes aside – Ratings are as follows:

Canal front condo

  • 5 of 5

This room in Sandpiper Cove was absolutely beautiful. It had such wonderful amenities and was definitely well-stocked. The owner left a bottle of wine and a frozen pizza for our arrival, we were very touched by her caring thought! There was also a very large bath tub that my preschooler enjoyed. We loved sitting out on the balcony watching the fish, ducks, cranes and turtles swim around! It was a very short walk to the beach and to the pool. We drove to the beach, even with the short walk, I am unable to walk due to a health reason, but there was PLENTY of parking each day alongside the beach! The snack bar was also a great touch down at the ocean, with a nice restroom to use! The private beach was gorgeous, and we LOVED the beach chairs and umbrella provided for our use! The beach was never really overcrowded and we really enjoyed the emerald waters of Destin. I would definitely recommend this room to anyone with a small family!
