About Lenny Daniel
I am a video producer from Atlanta,GA and live full time there. My wife, daughter and I love the Destin area and have been traveling there since my parents used to take me there starting in 1977. We purchased the studio condo in 2002 and soon after purchased a 1BR unit in the complex. We currently have both units and rent them out.
Lenny Daniel purchased this Studio in 2002
Why Lenny Daniel chose Holiday Isle
The studio condo is perfect for an individual or a small group of 2-4 people who want to get to Destin on an affordable price. The condo does have a full kitchen and bath, so it is a property that can accommodate a small family for a beach vacation. The unit is in a gated resort, so it's safe and is only about 100-125 yards from the beach.

The condo is a studio with a Murphy bed and a pull out. The location of the condo is great! One of the 5 pools is basically in the backyard. The beach is a short walk away. The private beach is crystal clear you think you’re in the Bahamas.. Lenny is awesome. Every time I contacted him he replied the same day. He was friendly and helpful. I hope that I can get back to Destin. If I do, I hope to be able to stay here again.
Good for what we needed
The check in process was a little rough. I spoke with the owner letting him know my wife would be there a day before me. The guards gave we’re abrasive with her. Needing to know my whereabouts and why I wasn’t with her. So they were a bad first impression. The grounds were very nice and we loved the pools and proximity to the beach. The room was clean with nice new carpet. We enjoyed the beach chairs and few toys that had been left on the back deck. The golf clubs in the closet were a nice touch as well. The room served its purpose as a place to sleep and seek shelter from the rain!
Glad you enjoyed your stay in the condo Ronnie. I'm really sorry the check in process was tricky for your wife. I had contacted the guard station to let them know she would be getting there before you and they made it sound like it wouldn't be a problem at all, so I'm sorry if there was someone in there that wasn't aware of the situation. They're usually very friendly and accomomodating. Perhaps it was a new security guard on duty that day? Again, my apologies to her for any inconvenience she experienced.
Great Affordable Vacation!
Would rent again, we enjoyed our stay.
Out dated condo
Very old and out dated had kitchen items that should be thrown away. The bedding was old and stained the chest drawers missing a bottom
The couch arms are worn off and covered by some old weird fabric.
Black duck tape on the glass door that doesn’t close properly.
But on the bright side it didn’t smell and the ac worked well.
We have at sandpiper 7 times and most were extremely nice but not this one.
I'm sorry you experienced that Teresa. We had stayed there a couple of weeks before your stay and the thing that really got our attention was worn carpet, so we focused on getting new carpet installed in the unit, which we were able to do. We didn't really notice any old kitchen items or stained linens, but we sure will have our cleaning lady check those out and get replacements where needed. As far as the sofa goes, it's been a very nice leather sofa and very comfortable, so we purchased arm rest covers for it until we can get a new sofa in there. It's the first time anyone has brought that up to us, so we'll focus on that next.
Again, I apologize that I couldn't let you bring your dog, but the HOA has strict regulations about short term renters bringing pets onto the property. I'm sorry I couldn't accommodate that request for you.
The unit is a bit "shop worn", but still comfortable.
The complex is very well kept. The unit is close to the pool, but not close enough to be a noise problem. The beach is only about a 3 minute walk from the unit and there was also ample parking at the beach access if you choose to drive over there and leave your vehicle.
Close to beach.
The room was clean and had everything you need in the kitchen. Towels and blankets were clean. I would recommend this to anyone.
