Awesome vacation place!
Awesome vacation place!
This is an amazing condo! Our family decided to travel to Destin for a Thanksgiving get-together. Even though we had eleven people, there was an abundance of comfortable living and sleeping space. This condo is exactly as described: amazing views of the ocean and beach, very clean and beautifully decorated, incredibly well equipped (the owner thought of everything) and perfectly located. Due to our off-season travel time, the hot tub and heated pool were also wonderful accommodations. In addition to spending time on the gorgeous beach and great pool, there were tons of activities for all ages in close proximity. Our kids (ranging from 7-13 years of age) enjoyed the Track Family Recreation Center that was practically across the street. The trip to Gator Island at Fudpucker’s restaurant was also a big hit. A nearby shopping mall and movie theater kept us busy on a rainy day. The Village of Baytowne Wharf was also full of fun activities for everyone. There, the boys loved the zip-line and ropes course. The adults enjoyed the shops and food. There were many great restaurants in the immediate area, including a short beach walk to the fantastic Back Porch restaurant. Even though there were many restaurants to choose from, the condo’s kitchen was also a perfect place to prepare meals for the family. Overall, this was an ideal vacation place: beautiful, clean beaches, an abundance of nearby activities, and an AMAZING condo. The owner was a delight to work with and any need or question was taken care of quickly. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to be with our family and will definitely be returning!

This was our 2nd trip to Destin. I would highly recommend this area for anyone. There are plenty of activities for the entire family. We traveled with our son, daughter in law and 3 grand children and there was plenty for everyone. We especially enjoyed the Destin Harborwalk with all the great resturaunts and water activities available. La Famiglia italian resturaunt had outstanding food. A 5* in my opinion. As for this unit it is one of the nicest we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in condos all over the country. The unit was very nicely decorated, very spacious and extremely well equipped. The balcony was great, and the pool area was wonderful. Having a heated pool in February was a fabulous feature. I don't think I have ever been to a pool that the water temp was kept so comfortable. Easy beach access and the most beautiful beaches you could ever imagine only added to the quality of the amenities. Overall our family loved the vacation and the only regret was we had to leave.

This condo is the epitome of nice!
This condo is the epitome of nice!
My friend and I visited Destin in December (2013) and chose to stay at this condo. We were both extremely pleased and would not think of staying anywhere else in the future (and there were only two of us-so I would think it would be even more perfect if a family chose this condo so as to utilize all of the bedrooms, the large balcony(s), etc). I'll write this review focusing on the condo itself, and leave out Destin as a tourist town in general (which I highly recommend if you haven't visited before). Anyway, despite the fact that we were there during the off season, there appeared to be ample parking even during peak times, whether in the garage under the building itself, or in the outside parking lot. We felt safe the entire time we were there and never once worried about us or our car. Inside-I had seen photos of this condo prior to arriving, but it was even nicer (and I felt larger) than what was in the pics. It has a decent sized kitchen that is fully stocked with utensils, pots, pans, etc which was very convenient. The living room, kitchen and dining room are all in an open area. As nice as these are, in my opinion it's the bedrooms and bathrooms that really shine. Both of the master suites had huge private bathrooms with a nice shower (just the right amount of water pressure) and jacuzzi tubs, with a separate sink and changing area. Both bedrooms have balconies that overlook the ocean (one is ocean front and the other is an ocean view). The bedroom that is more ocean view was my personal favorite due to fact that it sort of felt like it's own little separate condo with it's own sink, microwave and that it's on the far end of the condo from the other bedroom (my friend has a snoring issue-so this was a particular positive for me). Each bedroom also has a large tv and ceiling fans that are very quiet. Just a note on the 3rd bedroom. It's smaller and more for kids (but not tiny), and has it's own bathroom as well. The pool area is nice as well. We didn't swim much due to the time of year, but it was nice and at night, the lights inside the pool change colors. There is a nice BBQ station, workout room and the grounds are kept up nicely. The private chairs on the beach is a nice amenity. There are so many good things to say about this condo, (efficient, modern and up to date) so I'm sure I'm forgetting something that I'll think of later, but all in all, this place is perfect for anyone (although you might get a little spoiled as we did).

We stayed here with two families total, 4 adults and 3 teenagers, and had the perfect amount of room! We enjoyed the ocean view balcony and the place looks like it was designed by an interior designer. The televisions are super nice as well as the gorgeous kitchen and bathrooms. Everyone slept really well in both the master bedrooms and the child room. One of us slept on the pullout sofa bed and even that was comfortable! Will most definitely come here again! Had a wonderful stay! -The Munster Family

This condo is very well decorated and sleeps several people. As the other review mentioned the small bedroom has new furnishing that are not in the picture. We had a wonderful time. It is very convenient to the beach since it is on the first floor and the stairwell is across the hall. I would definately recommend renting this condo especially if you have a large group of people. The kitchen was fully functional. It had everything you needed for preparing meals. The only negative comments I have is that the refrigerator at the bar doesn't work. We reported it but it was not repaired while we were there. Hopefully, it has been repaired since we left.

Manager response: A brand new refrigerator had to be ordered and was replaced immediately when we took over ownership. Thanks - new owners. :)
My family had a wonderful time on vacation in Destin staying in this condo. The listing was very accurate. We were amazed at how large the unit is and the balcony. The balcony furniture is so nice. The two master suites were just awesome. We had a 4 year old and a 1 year old with us and they had THE best time. The condo was perfect for our family. We had one of the master suites and my parents took the other one. We slept every night with the patio door open, so we could fall asleep to the waves crashing. The view is fantastic. Sterling Sands is a perfect condo complex if you are looking for a smaller, less crowded pool and beach. The condo itself had a few minor areas that needed repair, but the response was quick. They obviously take great pride in making sure that every guest is very satisfied. We really enjoyed this unit and will definitely stay here again. Thank you so much. One note: the third bedroom furniture is different from what is pictured when we stayed here. It is newer and really really nice. It is a full on full bunk bed and there was also a chair that pulled out to a sleeper.
