Looking for a vacation on a family friendly resort property without high rises? Our condo is on the 2nd floor. This spacious, newly decorated two bedroom two bath condo is situated on the Bay Canal in the popular Sandpiper Cove Resort. Relaxing on the back deck looking down over the birds, ducks and fish is a real treat! Play on the complimentary nine-hole par three golf course and enjoy five swimming pools, three hot tubs, six tennis courts (three lighted), shuffleboard, horseshoes, complimentary high speed internet and easy access to the boat dock. There is tons to enjoy here on this 43 acre gated resort with 24 hour security. The onsite restaurant, Louisiana Lagniappe, overlooks the boat marina. As a bonus, two complimentary, professional-grade lounge chairs and umbrella await you every day (March 1st through October 31st) on the resort’s 1100 foot private beach!

Our family friendly condo is equipped with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, flat screen TV’s and DVD players. Absolutely no pets or smoking allowed inside the condo.

We can negotiate on prices some, but peak times are priced well.

Tell us which week you would like to be our guests! Please advise if your time is flexible. As a family owned business, we see you as an extension of our family and hope to establish a long-term relationship like we have with so many families already.

Our condo overlooks the Bay Canal with easy access to the boat dock. The condo is around a 100 yard walk through the complex to the private beach. There is a dead end road that bisects Sandpiper Cove that you cross to get to the beach --- there is a cross walk for safety or you can drive your car and park in the parking lot at the condos on the beach side (first come).

Out of our family-owned Destin condos, this is the one our children choose! They like to fish below our deck. If looking for Ocean Front, see our VRBO # 40164

The boat slips are handled through Sandpiper Cove directly. I can pass that info to you.

Boat trailers have to be stored off-site. To the best of my knowledge, no owner can offer slips directly to a guest.

Great family condo, close to the beach, pool and courts. Had fantastic time with my family.

  • 5 of 5

The resort was very nice with nice pools, a golf course and restaurant. The condo had everything we needed and was roomy and comfortable. We loved going out on the balcony and watching the boats and the wildlife. It was great having a washer/dryer inside the condo. The beach was close and we would drive to the front of the Sandpiper and park right at the beach. The beach service was great and the ocean awesome.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very comfortable and clean. I had all the utensils needed and wifi the kids thought they needed at night! It was a short walk to the beach through a private gate and and convenient to all Destin has to offer. We love Sandpiper Cove and this is our second time to stay. We won't stay anywhere else when we come to Destin! The owners were very helpful and always quick to respond with any questions we had. Would recommend this condo to anyone!

The condo had everything we needed. The owners were very helpful and answered all the questions we had and represented the condo well. The canal was nice to drink coffee and watch the wildlife. We drove to the front of the resort and that put us right at the beach. We love Destin and will be back.
