Get ready for the vacation of a lifetime. Sandpiper Cove Resort has something for everyone. Move into a beautifully furnished studio: Perfect for a couple or a family of four.

Bring your boat and moor it on the peaceful canal in Destin Harbor. Sandpiper Cove has its own private marina and free boat ramp. Head to the Gulf, Chatawhatchee Bay, or the Bayous. Try your hand at crabbing or fishing. Do you scuba dive or snorkel? Be prepared for a real treat. Catch your own lobster for dinner or marvel at the beauty of the marine life on the limestone reefs. You might even want to dive on a sunken wreck.

Try out any of these free activities at Sandpiper Cove: nine hole, par three golf course; five swimming pools with one off the back patio; three hot tubs; six tennis courts (three lighted); shuffleboard; horseshoes; and ocean kayaks. The Louisiana Lagniappe Restaurant is located within the resort.

This condo was our home away from home. Very quaint, cute and extremely clean. They thought of everything, even a corkscrew which I had forgotten. It was close to everything. We are planning on making this our annual vacation spot. We recommend it to anyone with a family of 4 or less!!

We had never rented a Condo before this trip. We were very nervous and didn't know what to expect. The process was very easy and there were no hidden fees. When we arrived it was exactly as pictured and all information provided was spot on. We were worried about the fact that it was a studio but all that disappeared once we arrived. My husband, myself and our two adult boys had plenty of space. The Murphy Bed was so comfortable and a breeze to lower and raise. The condo was clean. Everything that we needed was already there, and we felt very at home. We could easily walk to the pool and the beach, and the location is close to everything! The staff at the Sandpiper Guard Shack were very nice and helpful. Kathleen and George were very nice and was very quick to respond to any questions. We only had 1 issue upon arriving with a missing blanket and that was taken care of very quickly and we were free to enjoy the rest of our vacation. My husband is already talking of returning. It was a great place to relax and recharge our batteries.

We throughly enjoyed our visit to "Kay's Condo" and found it conveniently located to everything in Destin. This is the perfect place for a family vacation. The beach is gorgeous and Sandpiper Cove has lots of activities for all ages. We can't wait to return!

Destin Seafood Fest

October 8, 2008
I came in for the Destin Seafood Fest to see Mark Farner perform. The condo was nice. Wasn't there much. Kathleen, the owner, was very easy to deal with. The condo is not on the beach but there is a private beach across the street which was very handy.

Family fun !

We absolutely loved our stay at Sandpiper Cove. Our unit had everything we needed plus lots of fun extras (golf clubs, tennis racket & balls, beach chairs etc...) It was great having the beach plus 5 pools right out our door! We will be back very soon.

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind words. Our family has been enjoying Sandpiper Cove since 2003 and we are glad to share the experience with our many fine guests.


Perfect Stay!

August 5, 2012
I really enjoyed the resort vs a hotel stay. It was relaxing had adequate amenities. The Kitchen unit was full size kitchen which saves on having to eat out everynight. Lacked BBQ which would jhabe been a plus. The bath was full size with a large soaking tub. A jetted tub would have been the best after a long day. The pool was 72 feet away from back patio... Loved it. I have a vacation Resort in Destin but can never get in during the summer. I was able to book a last minute reservation with 2 day notice. I will most definately and reccommend SandPiper Cove.

The condo was great. It had everything we needed. It was our best vacation ever as a family. The murphy bed was comfortable for me. I was a little nervous with some of the breakables in the condo because of the kids but everything turned out fine. It was great that they had so much kitchenware. My daughters loved drinking out of the colorfull glasses. The cable TV was appreciated when we were looking for some downtime in the air conditioning. We were very depressed for a couple of days after we left. We will certainly look you up againand also recommend your condo to any of our friends or family who are looking to get away from it all. Thank you. I am so glad that I found your condo on the internet.

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time in Destin. Your place was great and in a perfect location for us. We played a little golf almost every day and jsut relaxed the rest of the time. Everyone around us was more friendly than we could have ever asked for. Thank you again, and I am sure we will be contacting you in the future for another stay.

Hi Kathleen:

Thanks once again for the use of your condo. Four years and counting. Each year it just gets better. The new carpet, new sofa and love seat were a nice addition this year. It is very clean, beautifully decorated and has everything needed for a great weeks vacation. You and your husband have been extremely helpful and have answered all of our questions and met all of our requests. The three ring binder in the condo, full of vacation activities, is becoming our encyclopedia of things to do in Destin. The week's rate is very reasonable and we greatly appreciate the prompt return of the full amount of our deposit.
Sandpiper cove has so many free amenities that it is not necessary to spend much money once we arrive. We have enjoyed the beach (about 220 steps away), golf, tennis, hot tubs and the swimming pool right off our back deck. We also used one of the heated pools on our November visit. Fall remains our favorite time of year in Destin. Rates are down and so are the crowds but the Gulf waters are still warm.
We always catch blue crabs off Okaloosa Island and enjoy our catch for dinner that night. My husband likes the deep sea fishing and I love the shopping.
Our week in Destin has become a favorite tradition. We plan to continue this tradition at least once a year.
