CLEAN, SPACIOUS, BEAUTIFUL VIEW
CLEAN, SPACIOUS, BEAUTIFUL VIEW
The main reason we are giving this 4 stars versus 5 stars is because we had many issues with the dvd and the multiple remotes. The owner definitely needs to update the dvd player to make more user friendly. VHS is almost nonexistent. Just need the basics for nighttime movies. As well could benefit from a few more accessories such as scissors/better knives. Otherwise the place is great and the beds were very comfortable. As well we were impressed with the quick response from maintenance to try and fix the dvd. Would consider staying there again.

Condo vacation Sterling Sands Condominium
The unit was a little dated but clean and well maintained. When we arrived we noted slow draining sinks and tub and should have notified owner immediately, but we were so swept up in the vacation experience that we only notified him of the issue on the last day of our stay so that he could have problem resolved for next tenants. Maintenance issues required that the facility had one of two elevators out of service at all times, and half of stairwells blocked off as well. This was a minor inconvenience for us, as we were on the second level and used the stairs, but clearly this would be a big issue for those visitors on higher floors. I would suggest owner consider replacing sofa in living room as it is pretty "rump sprung". Owner has been very thoughtful in his communications and prior to our arrival expressed concern that the sofa sleeper was not functioning properly. This was not an issue for us as there were only 3 in our party and we used the beds provided. I would not want to be the poor soul assigned to the sleeper sofa. It was a little uncomfortable for the few times we used it for seating - we kind of slid to one side! The shower in the en suite had some mold on the floor. Just an observation - not a criticism - as residents new to the South, I'm beginning to appreciate that mold and mildew are ever present. However my husband nixed my plan to purchase tub cleaner and attack the mold, telling me it wasn't my vacation job. We found the onsite management to be unresponsive to issues on the whole. Two members of our extended 18 person party fell at the outdoor shower area, and two more nearly fell. (I should point out, we're all older middle age - had this been someone older than us these falls could have caused serious hip fracturing type injuries!) Our friends survived with bruises and aches and pain. Immediately reported this issue was brought to the attention of two young individuals in the onsite management office where we were told that "yeah, we know there's a problem" before they returned to their personal conversation. As an RN, I'm very aware of occurrenc/incident reporting and raised the issue with them - no concern, no report filed. Good luck - keep this up and some visitor will rightly sue. In all fairness, two days later mats were installed in the outdoor shower area.

If you are looking for the perfect place right on the beach, stop now, you found it!! This condo is beautiful, clean, comfortable and has breath-taking views. We enjoyed the large balcony and being able to see the sun rise and set. The bed was very comfortable and we found everything to be clean and in order. We also enjoyed the pool, the hot tub and the short walk to the beach. The listing description and photos of the property are very accurate. The owner was easy to work with--all by email. The information sent to us before our arrival answered all the questions we had. I especially liked that the front door had a code--therefore, no key or card to keep up with!! We would highly recommend this condo to anyone staying in the Destin area. We loved it! Our favorite place to eat was the "Back Porch" which was just a short walk down the beach.

We planned a last minute getaway to the beach and luckily found this unit available. Unfortunately, upon our arrival there was a tropical storm moving through but we still had a couple of good days. The condo location is perfect. Being directly on the beach with the unit overlooking the pool area made it easy to keep an eye on our two teenage girls. They thought it was great to have the freedom to go around without parents having to follow every step. It's also very close to the mall and some great restaurants. Also, the unit has every amenity that you could ever need if you wanted to cook. We will definitely be back.

Owner response: Tonya Thanks you very much for the great words on my condo. I am also glad you had a great time except for the couple of days of bad weather. I actually tried to prevent that...haha...I look forward to having you back in my home away from home. Thanks again
We just returned from our trip to destin and stayed at this condo, what a great place. The condo was exactly as pictured, very clean, a lot of space with a beautiful view of the gulf. Everything you might need is there in the condo. The deck was wonderful to sit out on and was very large. The beds were great, very comfortable and the view from the master was as beautiful as it was from the living room. The condo is centrally located so it is very close to everything. The pool and beach are just steps away. The grounds are maintained beautifully. What a great place for a vacation. Thank you Rick for allowing us to stay at your condo!!!

This condo is exactly as advertised and let me tell you we were not disappointed at all. It is very nice on the inside, very large, the master bedroom and bathroom is very spacious and the master has a balcony that right onto the Gulf! The condo is in an excellent location, right in the middle of everything and especially for us only a short 5 minute walk down the beach to our favorite restaurant The Back Porch (that was a pleasant surprise). This building is only 8 floors but a very wide lot which means more beach space. The pool is nice; the grounds are nice, there is not anything negative I can say about our experience with Kim and Rick from making the reservation to completing our stay. It was top notch all the way. The condo comes with a covered parking spot but we choose to park outside because it is a very tight fit in the parking garage, but that was no problem at all. We will definitely be back with you guys again! Thanks for letting us use your condo. Hal and Tammy

Our stay in Sterling Sands couldn't have been better! The important things I was looking for was, beachfront, nice pool, great view, and a comfortable living space. All were acheived im this condo. Sterling Sands is only steps away from the beach which had pleanty of space and was not over crowded. I was worried before my stay that a "heated" pool would not be kept very warm. The pool was kept at a very comfortable temperture on the few 60 degree windy days the kids were very comfortable in the pool. The view was even better than pictured There was nothing like sitting in the comfy oversized chair looking out at the vast horizon of the gulf. Most days we saw dolphins playing in the water. Before I rented I had read a review that suggested paying the higher price for the condo's with a double balcony and I am glad I listened. We are a family of 5 and the extra space was well worth the price. The bedrooms were large, the king bed was very comfortable, 5 of us could sit in the living room very comfortably, the dining table sat 6, kitchen was large, the condo was great! The condo was as beautiful as pictured, Kim was very easy to work with, Sterling Sands was well maintained and clean, the condo was clean and well maintained, I would highly reccomened this condo to anyone with or with out children who are looking for a nice quiet relaxing vacation!
