Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Clean, beautiful home. Pool area & cabana exceptional. Bedroom TV's were very small. Do not choose this place UNLESS you will keep a clean spotless home. We loved it & would like to return sometime in the future. Janet & Chris were great to deal with, always responding to email & phone calls. They are very professional.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write the review for the winter month you enjoyed at Sterling Stay Beach House. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit. Yes, we do keep an exceptionally clean and tidy property! As for the bedroom TV's, most guests watch the large 65 " flat screen TV in the living room; otherwise, they are out and about in Destin enjoying the beach, relaxing in the private pool, or touring the beautiful area. We do plan to replace the 2 smaller 24" flat screen TVs in 2 of the bedrooms. However, we hope you enjoyed the other 2 bedrooms, which have 32" and the two 40" flat screen TVs in the cabana. Again, thank you for your review. We hope you will come again to Sterling Stay Beach House.

Fantastic Outdoor Patio

  • 5 of 5

I spent a lot of time researching to find the perfect house for our family, and what sold me on this home was the outdoor patio. We had 6 adults, 3 children, and 2 Jack Russells, so I knew that when we were at the house we would spend the majority of our time outdoors. The space had an incredible layout with 3 separate tables to gather around, and lots of railings to hang out our towels to dry. The kids (5, 7, and 9) loved the pool and it kept them entertained while the adults enjoyed playing family games, talking, and preparing food on the grill. As for the house - I brought some extra kitchen items that usually aren't available, or because there were so many of us there's never enough, but this place had EVERYTHING and I never had to unpack my own supplies. There was plenty of space for everyone and the pictures are exactly what the house looked like (i.e. no editing to make it look bigger or hide anything). The beach was just a short walk to the end of the block and they had a wagon and several carts to carry beach chairs, beach toys, umbrellas - all supplied by the owners. The location was perfect - restaurants, shopping, and even a gas station/convenience store/Domino's pizza right there before you leave the subdivision. There really aren't enough words to describe how much we enjoyed our family vacation - we made some memories to last a lifetime. Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to us!!

Great House and Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Love the layout of the house. 3 King bedrooms all with their own bath is great with several families staying. The house is really nice, kept up and clean. The location to beach access is great as its only a few houses away. Would highly recommend Sterling Stay. I only had one question about the house when I was there and it was answered within seconds with a text message. Book process and communication was easy and consistent. We will be back next year!

thank you.

Best beach house in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a wonderful family vacation at Sterling Stay. The location of this house was convenient to everything you need; including restaurants, grocery store, and shopping. The house was extremely clean and it was the perfect size for our large family of 14. Each family (8 adults/6 children) had their own bedroom and private bath. Four of the girls stayed in the bunk room and they too had their own bath. The kitchen was well-stocked with every dish and utensil possible. The children (ages 6-17) loved the pool and deck better than the ocean! The deck was beautiful and large enough so each person had a place to relax comfortably. We hope we can spend another family vacation at Sterling Stay.

EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic. Te house was in perfect condition and exactly what we needed. We had 4 couples and 8 children under the age of 6. IT really has everything you need. THe outdoor patio space of this house is where we spent the majority of time. THe kids enjoyed the pool so much that they didnt even want to go to the beach. Janet was as great of a property manager as i have ever met, and we do these trips all the time. HOnestly, i dont really have anything negative to say at all.

Attractive, Clean, Well Stocked With Necessities.

  • 5 of 5

Believe the Sterling Stay-Art Deco pictures, list of amenities, and proximity to the beach. It's for real and fabulous! Our bookclub of 9 women from Atlanta, GA celebrated our "20th Bookclub Anniversary," for three days Oct 02-Oct 05, 2014. Besides having the perfect weather delivered to us, the Art Deco home afforded us the opportunity to utilize every amenity that was listed, with plenty of space for each to have private moments on the rooftop to watch the Sunrise, as well as collective gatherings at the pool and deck to eat, drink and discuss the over 80 books that we've read over the years We did have more beds than rooms, but everyone slept comfortably. The icing on the cake, we were just a short walk away from the beach and utilized the well stocked Beach/Pool closet for the wagon, beach cart, 9 beach chairs and umbrellas. We cooked and/or grilled each of our 7 meals and the Kitchen was stocked with every pot, utensil, blender and nutribullet that nine cooks would need. want, and desire. Although we came as a group, each of us is looking forward to bringing our own family and friends for our own vacations at the Sterling Stay-Art Deco house. Once again, It's for real and fabulous!

DENISE...

My stay was great, the house looked and felt wonderful, it was warm and friendly & clean. What I loved was the house had EVERYTHING you needed for all your needs. A great home a way from home.

VONNIE...

My home away from home was without question all that it was presented to be. Not only was it comfortable, it was beautifully decorated, a block from the beach and supplied all of the accoutrements necessary to enjoy without worry,
