The Sterling House is a beautiful villa steps from the beach. The patio overlooks the ocean and the waves crash right below from where you are drinking your wine and breathing in the fresh air. This was a much needed break from our hectic life. Enjoy sunsets, sunrises and peace. We didn't look at a computer or read emails, just relaxed and reflected on life for awhile. The villa is in the best location ever. We rented a different villa two years ago that was very nice but we will always come back to The Sterling House from now on. The convenience of restaurants, beach bars, and water sports makes your stay so much easier. The villa has beautiful views from every single room. The bath opens up to a heated spool (spa tub, mini pool...that is what we call it in Texas "spool") which prevents you from dripping water all the way through the villa. The kitchen has everything you could need, and it has a gas stove for those who like to cook. The best part about this villa is the owner of the villa. Donna is a beautiful person who will take care of all of your needs. We asked Donna down for wine and cheese, she graciously excepted. We couldn't stop laughing and we enjoyed many of her hilarious stories. She is a jewel. We can't recommend The Sterling House enough. If tranquility is what you are after, in a setting out of a movie, this is the place for you. Did we mention wine too many times? Oh well!
