We loved our stay- everything was very clean and we especially loved the beach area! The house we stayed in was very sufficient for our family, the only request would be to have the air looked at- the unit stayed a little too warm.

This was a wonderful vacation with our children and grandchildren. We had 11 in our party and the condo provided sufficient space and was very clean. It was nice to have a washer and dryer available to wash swim suits and beach towels. We appreciated the water faucet/hose outside to wash sand off us and toys. Nice storage room outside for toys, chairs, etc. It was nice to have two dining tables and enough chairs for us to all eat together inside. Also a nice patio table outside for relaxing with a cool drink and watching kids swing.
The kitchen was not complete like we were expecting. The Can Opener did not work; the blender has a crack and leaks; there was no hand mixer; no hot pads or dish towels/cloths. There were enough plates/bowls/glasses for our family but only silverware for 8 people. Could use some containers for leftovers.
Bedrooms were sufficient. The one bedroom with 2 double beds is small but it worked. An idea would be to mount TVs to the wall to leave the dresser tops available for personal items. The sheets provided are very stiff and scratchy. The sofa bed is awful and my son ended up sleeping on the floor instead of using it. It definitely needs to be replaced. My suggestion is bring an air mattress if you need an extra bed.
Bathrooms are nice but not sure how you can say there are 2 ½ baths – we only found 2 bathrooms! ? Both bathtubs drain very slow and you end up ankle deep in water while taking a shower. We used the Linen Exchange for clean bath towels and that was great!
Amenities state 4 DVD players but there are only 2 which worked for us because we were not there to watch movies! And the remote did not work for the downstairs DVD player. The light at the top of the stairs outside was burned out and needs to be replaced. Dangerous to go down stairs in the dark.
Sandpiper Cove has great security and the private beach is wonderful! It is only a 3-5 minute walk from the condo – even with our 4 little grandkids! It is not a big deal to cross the highway to reach the beach – there is a stop light. The swimming pool is close too and the kids loved it! This Condo has a great location! Grocery store and Walmart close by to pick up what we needed.
With replacing the small appliances with working appliances; adding a few small containers for left overs; supplying kitchen towels/hot pads; replacing the bed sheets; and replacing the sofa bed, this condo would be perfect! However, we enjoyed the condo, the beach, the pool and being together as a family! Great memories were made!
