Sandpiper Beach complex is located on Old Middle Gulf right off of Middle Gulf Drive. Small complex with pool and tennis. Private and quiet. Most units are renovated (check with owner - agent) for pictures and ask lots of questions. Restaurants and shops are on Periwinkle - not that far for daytime walking or biking (on bike path) but must go by car at night.

The beach is great - More foilage at that location so complex is set further back. no elevators

Good reports from guests.

Sandpiper Beach is a great complex. There are five buildings total. There is no elevator in the buildings, but if you get a unit on the first living level, it is only one flight up.

Very quiet, low key complex. But, no motorcycles or pick-up trucks are allowed to be parked at the property

Sandpiper Beach is one of those complexes that doesn't show up on the trip advisor radar often.

It is kind of undiscovered.

All things change over time so our experience there, at a family reunion, several years ago will have limited validity. But it worked out great with side-by-side condo units.

The units are not right on the beach, with dunes between the buildings and the sand, but the views are pretty clear because the vegetation is (was?) low. There was a board walk to the beach.

You are not near food or restaurants, however. It is a long walk for most people to get to the shopping and restaurant areas on Periwinkle.

But privacy and seclusion has its own seduction.

You can always drive to the shopping, which is not a long drive, just a long walk.
