First Trip to Destin and we are in LOVE!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Destin, so it took us a while to find the right spot for us...but "Life's a Beach" was the perfect choice for us. Location was perfect as was the condo. It was beautifully decorated, kitchen fully equipped, very well cared for and clean. Views from the balcony were incredible, gorgeous white sand, emerald water and the sunsets were amazing. Owners were very quick to respond to our questions, both those about the condo and about the Destin area. We can't wait to return and would definitely want to stay at "Life's a Beach!" Thank you, for sharing your beautiful condo with us!

The perfect beachfront condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was truly spectacular with renovated appointments and furnishings throughout.

We enjoyed having our morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the gorgeous beach and emerald waters. The condo came with daily beach service which was a big plus. The owner was prompt and very easy to communicate with.

We have been coming to Destin and especially to Sterling Sands year after year. This condo was by far our favorite. We cannot wait to come back. It is a winner!

Great location- average condo

  • 2 of 5

We loved the location- great pool and the beach is wonderful.

We were disappointed in the lack of attention to details in the condo:

- no bathroom hooks or bars to hang up bath towels

- rusty master bedroom closet door tracks

- mildew in the bathroom tub grout

- mildew smelling kitchen towels (maintenance replaced)

- master bedroom dresser drawers come off the tracks each time opened

The condo pool and beach is well-kept and beautiful along with the grounds. However, we would not return to this unit.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed that you gave us our very first below 5-star review based on some minor points without regard to the entire renovated condition of our beach-front condo. We sent the maintenance team to address all your points: 1) The top drawer stopper in the brand new dresser had come off – they will put a new stopper 2) They will add a couple of bathroom hooks – there is no wall space to accommodate another towel bar 3) They cleaned the rust off the closet door track 4) They will recaulk master tub – it was last recaulked 5 months ago – July is the peak of humidity in Florida.

Life is a Beach....

  • 5 of 5

...when you stay at Life's a Beach condo. Centrally located, full accommodations in the unit and amenities of the pool and beach, breathtaking view of the gulf, clean condo and property. Easy access to the condo via stairs or elevators. The staff (can't remember his name) who helped us with our parking pass and wrist bands was extremely friendly and helpful. The owner was very helpful in accommodating us on a request....we asked on a Saturday and she was right back in touch with us. We would recommend Life's a Beach and plan to return. It worked well for our family. Our only problem is we did not get to stay long enough!

Super Special Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, niece, and I had one of the best spring breaks ever here.

Opening the curtains and seeing the view took our breath. We could see the the pool area, the beach, and the mesmerizing blue water.

The location is convenient to everything. You can walk to lots of stores and restaurants. The unit is right above the pool and just a minute away from the pool area and beach walkover.

The heated pool was amazing during the not so warm March days. Enjoyed the hot tub as well. Everyone was super friendly... Including guests and staff.

The unit was spacious and well equipped. We felt at home. Be aware that the second bedroom is small. It has a trundle for the second person. No closet. Best for one person.

We would definitely stay here again! We miss the balcony breakfasts and sunsets.

Fantastic Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had such a wonderful time here. The place was impeccable. The owner was organized and so easy to work with. The beach service was perfect. We were so thrilled with our stay that I booked next year the minute we got home!
