About Johnny or Leslie Johnson

We are owner/operators that love Destin and have worked hard to make our condo one that you will want to return to. The remodeling was a three week labor of love that we completed ourselves.

Johnny or Leslie Johnson purchased this condo in 2010

Why Johnny or Leslie Johnson chose Destin

We have been coming to Destin to vacation since the 60's. There is no place like it. The sugar white sand and emerald green waters are breathtaking.

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week vacation in the Sterling Sands condo and thought it was fantastic. The condo has everything you will need. It was a great setup for myself, my husband and our two kids. The condo itself is located centrally in the building on the second floor. It's far enough away from the elevator that you do not have noise from it but close enough to which you don't have long walks. This was good for the little one. The washer and dryer in the unit were great, we used it multiple times and went home with very little dirty laundry. One of the biggest bonus' were the included beach service. On our first day we let them know our name and then every other day the chair and umbrella were set up and reserved for us. Perfect! The staff at Sterling Sands were great, everyone was very friendly and did an amazing job of keeping the property nice.

The maybe one down fall is the traffic in the area but honestly that's the way it goes in a costal vacation area. This will be the case no matter where you stay in Destin.

The condo was lovely. We loved the view.

My only complaint was not the owners fault. The hot tub kept acting up as did the elevators. The facility otherwise was clean and pretty.

Wonderful Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Condo 207. Great attention to details, nice decor, very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed coffee in the morning and wine in the evening on the deck overlooking the pool and ocean. We liked the bistro style chairs/table and the higher deck chairs--very comfortable. The condo facility itself is also very clean and comfortable--the pool, hot tub, and private boardwalk access to the beach. The beach service included as part of the condo rental was also a huge plus. The guys in the beach service were very pleasant and detailed--making our daily stay on the beach more enjoyable. Other pluses about the condo--located within a 5 minute walk down the beach to The Back Porch--a relaxing Seafood Restaurant overlooking the beach. And you can walk across the street to pick up your wine--or other liquid refreshments at Beach Liquor. Overall we were very impressed with both the condo facility and our stay in Condo 207.

Beautiful pool and beach access. Wish we had known fitness center was under construction and not usable.

Owner's Response: I have requested more information from this guest. I am not aware of "Does and chairs seating broken". I ask all guests to contact the housekeeper or myself if there are any problems with the condo upon arrival or during their stay, yet nothing was reported. The pool and beach are indeed beautiful. I apologize that I didn't notify the guest that the fitness room was closed for renovations, but at the time of her stay, the management of the complex had not yet notified owners. I would have certainly have notified her.

Fly Into Ft. Walton or Panama City airport.

There is so much to do! The beach, of course is the main attraction. Beach service of two chairs and an umbrella are included in the rental. You are able to rent extras. There are ocean kayaks and stand up paddleboards for rent. Many people enjoy parasailing and there are several operators nearby.

The Track, with go-carts, bumper boats, kiddie rides, bungee jumping and mini golf, is across the street. The Big Kahuna Waterpark is also within walking distance.

At nearby HarborWalk, there are many opportunities for charter fishing. Crab Island is a sand bar that attracts lots of people on the weekends and easily accessed by pontoon boat or jet ski which are rented from vendors on the harbor. Crab Island is just north of the Destin bridge.

If you enjoy shopping, there is plenty. The Commons and Silver Sands Outlet mall are a short drive away.
