The Unique Benefits of this Condo: For kids, Big Kahuna and The Track are within walking distance. Sandestin's Baytowne has a band on Wednesday night. Harborwalk always has great food and nightlife with a great view of the harbor and fireworks on Thursday nights in the summer. We always love a bargain and Marina Cafe has an early bird special from 5 to 6 every night with a half-priced menu. Dewey Destin and Fisherman's Wharf also offer local seafood. You can walk the beach to the Back Porch Restaurant. Another Broken Egg is great for breakfast or lunch. There are so many restaurants, we will continue to explore them for years to come.

About Johnny or Leslie Johnson

We are owner/operators that love Destin and have worked hard to make our condo one that you will want to return to. The remodeling was a three week labor of love that we completed ourselves.

Johnny or Leslie Johnson purchased this condo in 2010

Why Johnny or Leslie Johnson chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have been coming to Destin to vacation since the 60's. There is no place like it. The sugar white sand and emerald green waters are unlike anywhere else we have visited.

We went to Destin for Fall Break. We have visited Destin several times but this was one of the nicest places we have stayed. We loved the location of our condo centered on the pool and beach!! It was a beautiful Condo with all the comforts of home. One of the most relaxing vacations I have been on. I will recommend to all my friends and will be back next year!!

Awesome time!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in Destin and felt this was better than the first. We absolutely loved the condo and its amenities. My 4yr old even commented on how clean the bathroom near the pool was! The condo itself was decorated very nice and set the tone for the week. The added beach service was also a plus! The Back Porch is within walking distance and a must to visit. Leslie was great to work with and answers questions promptly. We are planning next years vacation and will be calling Leslie to assist us with that. Sterling Sands #207 was great!!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything our family wanted or needed for a vacation. The condo was clean, beds were comfortable, nice having a combo lock and not to worry about keys, enjoyed the original artwork , and location was terrific. We will definitely come back. At times internet was slow in the evenings. Thank you to the Johnson's for a great get away. Would also recommend Boshamps for dinner especially when the have music there. Great food.

Best condo ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our first visit to Destin! The condo was absolutely beautiful! The condo decor, furniture and artwork was so neat!! The master bed was extremely comfortable. Every night we slept well and it was quiet!!! Best view of the pool and ocean from our second floor balcony. Lots of dolphins spotted from there as well. There is plenty to do within walking distance, especially for teenagers. Fireworks from the beach were an added bonus!!! The condo owners are very prompt to communicate with you for any questions/conerns. Highly recommend this beautiful place to stay!!
