About John Jones

We enjoy Sandpiper Cove and the beautiful Gulf year round. We have a boat and a small Jack Russell dog. Sandpiper Cove is our favorite place to go.

John Jones purchased this condo in 2003

Why John Jones chose Florida North West

Sandpiper Cove has it all. The most beautiful beach with 1,100 feet of crystal white sand, full beach service, emerald blue water, 43 acres, 5 pools to chose from, a par 3 nine hole golf course that is free to guests, a great restaurant, marina and docking for my boat. My condo has free high speed internet WiFi and all the things needed for a great vacation. You can go to the Sandpiper Cove website to see the complex and what we have to offer.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to all the great things at Sandpiper Cove, you are in the heart of Destin. Restaurants, shopping, fishing, water sports and much more are just minutes away. There is so much to do at Sandpiper Cove. If you want to fish you can drop a line in from the marina docks or go deep sea fishing, just 5 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi John,



We got home last night. We spent a wonderful week in Destin. The beach was a dream. When we arrived we couldn't believe ourselves how close the condo was to the beach. Your place was cleaned and in good shape, the security at the gate let us in right away. The space was a fit for us.

Now that we had a feel for Destin we hope we can stay in your condo next time.



We keep in touch



Regards

Wonderful honeymoon experience perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and nice, very impressed with the murphy bed. Never used one before now, but expected it to be like a hidabed and it was actually much more than that. Very comfy not too firm not too soft. Everything was very convinient, can see small portion of the ocean from the balcony, just a short walk across the street for walks on the beach, laundry room and pool right outside, i plan to bring my family back soon, the price was totally reasonable and a lovely little cottage. Bathroom has a huge tub! Local attractions within 1-3 miles away depending on what all u want to do. Too many activities to choose from! Quiet community, very friendly ppl, this place is a five star for sure, we wud b honored to come back, john was so nice and easy to work with and had excellent communication the whole time. Loved all of it!!

Great place to stay and a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the condo it had everything we needed and the beach is a short walk away, John is a super nice guy and very accommodating. We will definitely rent from him again. The restaurant Louisiana lagniappe is a great place to have dinner, but make sure you take the water taxi afterwards that by far was the best part of our vacation.

Last stop on our tour of Florida and we found what we were looking for. Nice studio, short walk to beach, 5 pools, golf, boat slips and a 5 Star Restaurant all on site. Great host, good communication and property exactly as described! A+

Great place for two

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Sandpiper Cove. This unit is close to the road, which is great for walking to the beach. I typically don't like to stay in a unit across the street from the beach, but it's easy to cross from Sandpiper Cove. The beach was a little crowded close to the entrance we used to the beach, but it wasn't too bad. The wifi and TV both worked great. The wifi was very fast and reliable (something I always need in order to get some work done). The bed is not as comfortable as home (for me, almost all beds away from home are not), but it was sufficient for four nights. The bathroom is nice. It has a big tub and good showerhead. It was nice to stay within walking distance of our favorite restaurant in Destin - Louisiana Lagniappe. I thought the nightly rate was fair, given the proximity to the beach and time of year we visited (early August). John is quick to respond to any questions/comments through VRBO messaging. We would definitely stay here again.

Condo/Unit was nice however Sand Piper Cove was not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

We rented from the Sand Piper Cove for our yearly family vacation. This was our first experience at the Sand Piper Cove and unfortunately our last. There were a lot of things not mentioned in the add however none of this had anything to do with our room. The actual condo/complex was small yet had everything we needed. No complaints with our room. However we arrived early and considering check in was not until 4 we hoped for access to the beach while we waited until 4 pm. Well they would not allow us access to the beach until 4pm so we had to go to Henderson Beach (which we highly recommend). The next day we went to enjoy the beach however it was overly crowded with umbrellas and sand chairs and we were told that we could not put up our canopy due to blocking the view however they could rent us umbrellas. We immediately left and went to Henderson Beach. We also tried out the pool areas of Sand Piper Cove only to find every pool was over populated and the only hot spas were located at one certain pool which was not near our condo/rental. We would've been better off renting a hotel and saving the money considering we didn't even use the beach access. Even though we did not have the experience we wanted to have we still made the best out of everything and had a great vacation. I recommend going parasailing and to Habor Walk while you are down. We also went and swam with the dolphins down at Gulf World in Panama highly recommend that as well.
