About Ashley Lindsey
We are a young, fun-loving couple who enjoy staying at the beach, especially in Destin!
Ashley Lindsey purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Ashley Lindsey chose Destin
We chose this property because we have another unit here and love the proximity to fine dining, great seafood restaurants, shopping, fishing, etc. We love to share our unit with others so you too can enjoy our favorite pastime!
What makes this Condo unique
Being on the 2nd floor is highly convenient because there is only one flight of stairs to go up if you need to. It is also a very short walk to the beach!

We love Destin but very crowded on the beach this time
Love Sterling Shores but our condo needed some work. Sofa stained with spills. Washing machine full of mold. Shower not working and tub stopper would not stay up. Furniture on deck needed to be tossed out. All chairs were torn where you could not sit in them so used kitchen chairs outside. Also there were disgusting toe nail clippings on the floor on the deck. Had to sweep deck which obviously had not been done in a long time. Only 1 skillet and very sparse silverware making cooking a particularly difficult task.
Despite these complaints, still love the pool and area and will always visit Destin
Thank you for your review. I apologize for the condition of the outdoor furniture. I wish I would've known. We had someone tell us about it after your stay and we were able to replace it the next day as well as the clogged drain! I will also notify the cleaners so they can better inspect it in the future. We hope to have you again soon!
Great property...Ok Condo
Overall, loved the location of the property. It was close to the pool and the ocean, as well as had a number of great restaurants within a short drive. The bedrooms are small (barely enough room to have a suitcase laying on the floor between the bed and the wall) but it wasn't a huge issue. Condo was clean, which was a concern I had after reading some of the other comments. The furniture is old and needs to be replaced but overall not terrible. The couch had some stains on it but they were minor and mostly due to normal wear and tear. There was only three of us (me, my wife and 2 year old daughter), so this condo was the perfect amount of space for us. Not sure it would work with a larger group. The condo is right across from the elevator but we did not hear a lot of noise at night. There were some times were we could hear the people above us shutting their door or moving chairs.
Owner was not very responsive to my emails. Average time to respond to my emails was 10 days. Even when I emailed her with concerns about reviews which talked about things being broken in the condo and the condo not being clean, she still did not get back to me until our fifth day of our trip (Email July 26th, response sent Aug 2nd).
Overall, not a bad property and might stay there again assuming furniture is updated.
Thank you for your review. I apologize for the delay in communication as I was out of town at the time. We hope to have you again in the future.
Decent property, disappointing unit
The overall property was nice....large pool and easy, quick access to the beach (about a three minute walk). Sits right behind The Back Porch restaurant, which had great food. Beach chairs available for daily renting. Our actual unit was quite disappointing though. Furniture was dirty, we washed the comforters the night we got there because they didn't appear clean, the refrigerator had a leak, we had to buy an iron because the one there didn't work and one of the toilets stopped working on the third day, leaving us with only one to use the rest of the trip. The bath towels were the worst I've ever used, as they didn't actually absorb water, they just wiped it off of you. The foldout mattress from the couch was too uncomfortable to actually sleep on. There is very little space to move around in bedrooms, so you either have to put all your clothes in drawers and closet, or step over your suitcase. Windows in each bedroom look out into a hallway and the unit is right off the elevator, so you hear all the noise of people coming and going. There is no actual view of the ocean in this unit, which was also disappointing. This unit is on second floor, I would guess 5th floor and above have ocean views. Overall, it was good enough, if only the unit met our expectations. We would not stay here again though.
Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the furniture, we usually do a year end cleaning but it sounds like it may have gotten more use. We've recently hired a new cleaning company as the previous one was not meeting our standards. With being on the second floor, its not possible to have an ocean view. Again, thank you for the constructive review.
Sterling Shores was beautiful... We loved it!
The unit was okay... It wasn't as clean as I think it should have been. My grandsons feet were black on the first day from walking on the floor barefoot, crumbs under the toaster, under beds were yucky, no batteries in the tv remotes, no light bulbs in the lamps in master bedroom, and I moved the rug in the living room--dirty... I think maybe someone should check the cleaning crew...
But we loved the area...swimming pools and grass areas, close to Back Porch, and the beach accessibility...
Thank you for your review! We will take these areas of concern to our cleaning manager.
Sterling Shores is our favorite place to stay! This unit is great for my mother, she doesn't like elevators and being on the 2nd floor is perfect for her. We can watch the kids play in the pool from the back porch while we enjoy the air condition! Love the new paint colors and will rebook this unit!
Thank you for your review! We look forward to having you again!
Adorable Condo - Great location in Destin
This is an adorable condo. Has become one of our favorite places to stay in Destin. I love that The Back Porch Restaurant is right there. No need to pack a cooler unless you just want to. When you want a cold drink or something to eat, just walk a few steps to place your order. There's even waitresses that come to you and take your order. No need to get up from your comfortable position. It's a true vacation with relaxation!
Thank you for your kind review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We also love The Back Porch restaurant!
