Great place and location!
Great place for family vacations and relaxing weekend getaway. I will always stay in Sandpiper.
Nice resort with all needed features and great beach access. Courtney with Destin Rentals was very helpful and responsive. We had a great time.
Always a great time at Sandpiper Cove
This is the 4th or 5th time we've stayed at Sandpiper Cove. It's a great family-friendly property. We swam in 3 of the pools and love the beach access. The unit was pretty on par with what we expect at Sandpiper Cove. It's clean and comfortable but just a little worn or "well loved". It had one of the. Enter bathrooms we've had on property.
This property was extremely dirty. There are holes in the walls that have been fixed horribly, one by simply putting up a board over the hole and screwing it in place. There is dust EVERYWHERE. Come to find out the return air was completely clogged with dirt and dust. The vents that blew the air-conditioning out had dirt all around it, the ceiling it blew on and the wall. There is mold in the shower and the shower leaks behind the wall and into the water closet beside it that has dirt, mold and trash all in it. Bed shams, rugs, furniture, walls, doors and counter tops are all stained There is no Kuerig coffee pot, washer and dryer or ice in the refrigerator. We had to search for the Wi-Fi modem which was in a closet unplugged. We plugged it in and it was incredibly slow if it worked at all - we just couldn't wait that long to find out. The unit is as far away from the beach as you can get and still be in the complex and way more than 1100 feet. According to our run Garmin it was more than 1/2 mile. When I contacted Courtney she would only send someone to clean - no way the problems would get fixed. She would not work with us to find a place to be happy or give our money back. We found another unit in Sand Piper Cove and were very satisfied AND they were less expensive, with amenities that are necessary to call it a condominium. I now have a bad feelings about VRBO for allowing such a rundown unit to go for rent and be misrepresented as this unit is. VRBO also would not help us find a place to be comfortable on our vacation we saved and planned for. I give this unit one star because the bar stools are cute and the table is nice. I hope I will be able to say Courtney stepped up and returned our money to try to make a bad experience a little better, but it has not happened yet.
I am happy to send anyone a personal video we take of the entire condo prior to each guest arrival to prove the cleanliness of this condo. It is cleaned 1-2 times a week! There is not mold in the shower - it is bleached with each clean....
We have the carpets and furniture professionally steam cleaned 3 times a year and the furniture is only 2 years old! Modem sits right by the TV in the living room so unsure what she is referring to.
We show where the condo is located on a map prior to each guest booking - we DO NOT advertise it being beach front and clearly state beach is within walking distance. We also provide a gate code to park your car directly at the beach pavilion if you do not wish to walk. We also DO NOT advertise this as having a washer/dryer...it is a one bedroom/1 bath condo located in a resort with free beach set up all for under $200 a night.....if you are looking for a Ritz Carlton type of place....then please pay the high dollar price and stay there - this is a clean/cute/ condo for a couple or a small family looking to be in the heart of Destin and enjoy the beach/resort amenities on a budget. This guest stayed the entire time and never moved properties....that information is false. Sorry we provide a regular coffee maker - if you wanted a specialty coffee pot - you should have bought one!
Sandpiper Cove is very nice (I'd give them 5 stars)....Unit 1017, not so much (I give the room a 2)
The SandPiper Cove is actually very nice. It was very quiet. The grounds are very clean and well landscaped. The golf course was a fun thing to do one afternoon. The swimming pool was very nice and the day we swam in it, we had it to ourselves. We dined at the Louisanna Lagniappe (EXCELLENT!). The property is at a great location in Destin, walk (or drive) to the beach was perfect. The beach bar (Ricks) was a plus too!
The only problem was our actual room. We rented thru VBRO and not thru the SandPiper Cove office. The room #1017 did not feel very clean. The living room furniture is very worn out and dirty. The fold away bed was broken and my child was down in the slant one morning! And best of all....the a/c unit was frozen over so we we had no air the first 2 nights. It was very muggy due to the rain showers. I called Destin Rental Co. and they did send s repair man right over...but it took 2 days to fix which meant we had no air AND 2 men in and out of our room with wet shoes....(due to rainy weather). We simply had to leave while they were working. Initially my rental contact suggested that the unit froze because I had it turned down too low and the doors were open....this was NOT the case....the problem existed before our arrival. We looked in the return air closet which is located in the bathroom and it was SO GROSS! Dirty, moldy, wet, trash in there....after seeing this I requested to be moved but was told I was not allowed to move "just because of this" and that my trip Insurance was based on other issues. Whatever! Rather than argue while on my vacay....we kinda sucked it up and just kept busy doing stuff outside of this condo which wasn't exactly easy because it rained 1/2 day each day of our trip. Just to keep from being stuck inside (because it felt grimy) We saw a movie, went shopping, out to eat every meal, Destin fishing museum, several boating excursions, visited with friends, and of course, some beach time. A big part of choosing this room was because it came with the complementary chair rental. This was the greatest part of room 1017. The beach Service boys were very kind and accommodated us each time we made it down there. So, all in all, we had a great trip....I would just strongly suggest that the owners spiff their unit up each season. Nobody wants to go on a family trip and have to check-in to a gross place. I seriously had the "don't take your shoes off in here" mentality. Pretty disappointing.
Thank you for your review and I apologize you were not happy with the condo. I did speak with you during your trip and let you know the condo is cleaned between 1-3 times a week so it is a very clean condo! We even sent housekeeping back over for you to touch up anything that wasn't up to your standards. Housekeeping said there wasn't anything you pointed out to them besides one little mark on the wall behind trash can.
We just purchased all new furniture 2 summers ago so the furniture is by no means old. The AC did get frozen upon your arrival (it was working up until you and your family called me that next day)....we immediately sent out the AC company and they had it working within 45 minutes (NOT 2 days!!!). We do not keep trash in the ac closet - there are extra air filters only. When you freeze up the ac - it has to unthaw before it will work again hence why it was wet in the closet at that time.
Guest can rent this condo for less than a hotel - we do not advertise it to be the ritz carlton but it is a great/clean condo for anyone looking to vacation in beautiful Destin and on a budget.
The condo was decorated very modern. Our 2 girls loved being by the pool. Loved having a security entrance and exit, very secure feeling. The guards at the front gate were very friendly. The only issues we had were with the shower. The hot water tank is very small so we had to hurry through each shower. Would recommend putting a tankless water heater. The other was when we would shut the shower off black stuff would shoot out of the bottom faucet. Neither of which would keep us from booking again. In fact my wife and I looked online to see if any where for sale.
