Sandpiper cove is a family oriented vacation spot with 43 acres, 1100 feet of private beach front property. They have a 9 hole par 3 golf course and the famous Louisiana Lagniappe restaurant I have always been greeted by friendly faces.

Nice unit. Tastefully decorated. This is a top floor unit so be prepared to haul your stuff up some stairs. It is also kind of hidden, can see the walkway from the parking lot but not the entry. Bring fans as it gets quite warm in the unit during the day. We had to put our chocolate donuts in the... More

We've been going to Sandpiper for a long time and I was impressed that they are still getting better. There were some years where we wondered but the staff was beyond helpful this time.

Sandpiper Cove was much better than a hotel.The price was about $50 a night less than the hotels I considered. The quality was much better. Full kitchen, huge tub, nice furnishings and very comfortable. Easy access to the beach and everything else. Golf course is very cool. Staff was friendly. I like that it was a gated community. I hope... More

This is a fairly large resort with a variety of floorplans available. It is not luxurious, but quite comfortable and well-maintained. I was in unit 9209, which was directly across the street from the beach. I was on the second floor (walk up) and enjoyed not having to wait for the elevator to get to my room as is the... More

Sandpiper Cove is a beautiful well kept property that boasts a private beach for use by their guests or property owners. Destin Beaches tend to be packed on Holidays and Weekends, access to a private beach made for a much better visit. Yes, there was a decent crowd, even on the private beach, especially on the weekend, but nothing compared... More

The condo was great (could go for a remodel / makeup in the near future) but it was everything we needed. Very close to the beach and reasonable room rates. Staff was helpful and the grounds were well kept, quiet and enjoyable. Great for families or large groups of friends. Make sure to bring paper towels, napkins and your dish... More

My family has been coming to Destin the last 10 years and it's always been a real treat! Everything is always so clean, so "homey", the staff is sweet, and the burgers at the pavilion are AMAZING! We usually come between July-August but last year we went and September and had a blast not to mention got married at Sandpiper... More
