Unit 6100 is a great place to spend your vacation days.
It's nicely furnished, whether it fits your taste or not.
It's very close to the beach (5 minute walk) and one of the property pools. Even though there is a 4-lane street to cross, it's very safe because it has a button-triggered light for pedestrians.
It has 3 bedrooms, and a sofa-bed. We were a total of 8, including two kids. The kids ended up sharing beds with the adults, so we never used the sofa-bed.
Fully equipped kitchen (fridge/freezer, stove, oven, microwave, coffee brewer), so you can take full advantage of it after a visit to the supermarket (Winn-Dixie on the opposite block and Wal-Mart 2 miles away).
There is a washer and dryer inside the unit.
It has two full bathrooms, with one of them having the toilet and shower behind an additional door.
The view of the marina from the deck is great. Nice place for breakfast outside.
While this didn't affect us, be aware that even though the unit is on a first floor, there is a set of (about 8) steps to get to the entrance door. If you need special access, you may need to find a different unit.
There had been a leak from the upper unit that damaged one of the bathroom ceilings, and it had been hastily repaired. The plumber came to look at it at 7am one morning. I think this could have been handled better by a) disclosing the damage in advance, and b) scheduling the plumber visit when the unit was not occupied. One star removed.
The condo property this unit is part of has multiple pools, tennis courts, and a (small, and well maintained) 9-hole course. Loaner golf clubs and balls are available at the office.
The property is located in a very convenient city area where there's all kinds of things to do aside from beach activities (amusement parks, restaurants, souvenir stores, chain stores). The Louisianna Lagniappe Restaurant is literallly next door to the unit. We didn't try that restaurant, though.
We had such a good time we decided to stay an extra day, which the office accommodated very easily, at the same rate. (BTW, this proves the plumber could have been scheduled to visit after our original stay plans).
Awesome view of the marina!

My family and I checked out of Sandpiper Cove 6100 last week. We really enjoyed our stay. There was a total of 9 people in our family and we all slept very comfortably. There were minor things that can be fixed. Overall, the unit was very nice, close to the beach, and the deck was beautiful. The location was perfect. The unit was only 1 block away from the Big Kahuna Waterpark. Any stores that we needed to get to was only a 10-15 min. drive away. Restaurants, including the Harbor Boardwalk was only a 5 min drive away. We would definitley stay here again in the near future.

I was a little nervous about this unit because there were no reviews, but it turned out ok. The condo was clean and the location was great. The huge deck with the view of the harbor was the best part of our time there. The unit is showing signs of age, but nothing that would keep us from staying again. The tubs/shower are in need of a little TLC also. The main thing I would change is the mattresses. They were not very comfortable. So, all in all, we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again.
