About Liz Harris

I'm the ultimate beach lover. Anything 'beach' as long as I'm facing directly to the ocean or Gulf and I can hear the surf. I like fun activities nearby too and fabulous restaurants and pubs. I'm a native New Yorker living in Kentucky for the last 25 years, but you can bet I'm visiting one of my beach places...Destin, Naples, Montauk or Isle of Palms...as often as possible.

Liz Harris purchased this condo in 2013

Why Liz Harris chose Destin

Destin offers more than just the beach. It's easy to fly into or drive to, and has everything I need either a short walk or drive away, including the incredibly unique Harborwalk Village. Where else can you get world-class fishing, restaurants, shopping, golfing and powder-white sand steps away? You can catch the sunrise AND sunset from my private lanai.

What makes this condo unique

When I walked into this Sterling Sands condo with the surf dazzling turquoise I knew I'd found the ultimate beach get-away. The new kitchen and baths cinched it for me and the kids couldn't wait to sleep in the bunk beds made up just for them. There is also an exercise room, a meeting room with a kitchen for parties, outdoor grilling area, beautiful grounds and I have a maintenance and cleaning team in place on-site for your needs.

If you leave the living room custom curtains open, you'll catch the sunrise--and won't forget it.

I am including the costs of the beach chair and umbrella service each day you are there between March 1 and Oct. 31. The apartment is so comfortable and the view so breathtaking, it is always very difficult to head home. Once you try it, I'm sure you'll return season after season. I welcome feedback and strive to keep the place pristine, comfortable and everything you'd want in your beach trip. If you need daily cleaning I can put you in direct contact with my cleaning crew to arrange for guest-expense daily cleaning or assistance. I also have signed up for on-site maintenance--like light bulbs or other appliance-assistance you may need. Just call Ron--his number is on my welcome page that I'll send you just before your arrival.

Clean room, attentive owner, can’t wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a clean and comfy place to enjoy time with your family, this is the place! Super close proximity to most all top restaurants, stores, the track and a water park! Clean beach, the pool was heated and well-maintained and Liz (the owner) was accessible and awesome! We had a small problem with our TV in one of the bedrooms and within an hour of texting her, the maintenance guy was there to fix it. We are already trying to find time to go back and this would be a top choice!

An excellent family vacation. Beautiful beach, wonderful property, and A+ service from the owner Liz

  • 5 of 5

The property provides an amazing view of the beach and it also overlooks the swimming pool. There is plenty of room in the unit to relax and it is very comfortable. The unit is very clean and well equipped with all of the essentials. The owner Liz was great and we look forward to the opportunity to stay again in the future.

Beautiful View

We had a great time and loved the condo. Liz was very easy to reach whenever we had a question. The ocean was crystal clear and the pool was very nice. We plan to make it an annual trip.

Overall it was a nice vacation

  • 4 of 5

The king bed was comfortable and the bunk beds worked out really well for my 2 and 4 year olds. It’s hard to get comfortable on the couch and arm chair so we pulled out the sofa bed and just laid/lounged on that. Have a door code verse a keycard is awesome and eliminates the hassle of waiting to sign papers and “check-in” at a desk. It’s right on the beach and the view from the room is perfect, we saw dolphins everyday. The condo could use some attention to detail like screws from old towel racks just painted over but nothing that would deter us from staying here again. The beach is very clean and the water is crystal clear. Destin is definitely going to be our new vacation spot.

380 feet of private beach for this condo
Car: not necessary

I've vacationed at hundreds of places but there is no place like Destin for the kids -- of all ages. They can't wait to get to Destin--always a favorite with them. Me? I'll just sit on the beach or the lanai and watch the dolphins...golfing is an option or the waterpark, go-carts or ice cream parlor. The white sands of the 380 feet of private beach, flanked by turquoise waters, is an image I won't soon forget.
