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 26 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.

Awesome Destin location
While I didn’t get to personally enjoy the condo, my son and his new bride were thrilled. I arranged their stay with Liz, the owner. She was great to work with and provided an awesome “welcome” letter with all the important info about the condo and recommended places to eat, spas, fishing charters, and so much more! The kids called the moment they arrived and said the condo was better than the pics and the location was awesome. Their view was blue ocean and white sand. They also told us the pool was beautifully lit at night and they spent a few nights just floating and listening to the sound from the ocean. From all accounts, it was a perfect honeymoon. Thank you Liz for sharing your place!
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The unit was beautiful and the view was great. The condo owner was very responsive to all questions.
I'm so happy to hear that, thank you for sharing! Please come back anytime!
Best view of the beach - unparalleled
Just got home from spending a week at Liz's property, and I have to say I'm impressed. The beach is not only pristine, but our little section is the best out of the other sections - it flows gradually into the water, whereas I saw many other condos where the sand has an almost sharp drop-off into the ocean. The pool is heated and therefore delightful - however it didn't appear to be heated on the 2 days where it rained all day. We hoped for a cozy dip in the pool while getting rained on, but the water was frigid - so we sat in the hot tub instead.
The condo itself was nice, although dated (hello, mirrored walls!). The beds were much too soft for my liking, but my kids didn't complain (of course, they were wiped by the end of the day and would have passed out on a cactus if necessary). The decor was fine - nothing fancy, it got the job done. We never sat once at the dining table, but if that's your thing - it's HUGE and can accommodate a good-sized crew.
Overall, we loved it, and will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for the great review! I'm so glad you had a wonderful time and can come back often---the beach really is amazing here. I'm here anytime you want a beach getaway.
I checked with the building manager and he shed some light on the pool temps, etc. that I thought I'd share:
"In the summer it’s usually between 88 and 91 and the heaters never kick on in that range. The only thing I can think of is when we clean the filters, once a week, we drain about two to three inches of water out of the pool and refill when we’re done. That obviously cools it down to maybe 86 (pool heaters kick on if it drops below that) but it quickly warms up with the sun."
We had a great time. Very clean condo. A little out dated with all the mirrors floor to ceiling. Not my taste but it didn't bother us. Liz is awesome with communicati g with you.
Thank you so much for coming and giving me the great review! You know, I've thought about the mirrors but upon reflection, pun intended, I realized it gave more of the wraparound ocean view feeling. I regularly do furniture upgrades and have, so far, left the mirrors. Please come back soon!
Clean room, attentive owner, can’t wait to go back
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!
I’m so glad you had such a wonderful time and I look forward to the next time you can come and visit! Thank you so much!
We had a wonderful time!!
Loved our condo!!! The location is very central to everything in Destin!! It was clean, comfy, and perfect for our stay!! The beach is gorgeous, and we enjoyed the warm water as well!! We also enjoyed swimming in the awesome pool!! We had such a wonderful time, and we will absolutely be back again!!
Thank you for coming to visit beautiful Destin on the Gulf...I'm so happy you enjoyed yourself and I look forward to your next visit!
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.
