About Liz Harris

I'm the ultimate beach lover. Anything 'beach' as long as it's CLOSE 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 22 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 Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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. Where else can you get world-class fishing and powder-white sand steps away? You can catch the sunrise AND sunset from the private lanai.

What makes this condo unique

When I walked into this Sterling Sands condo with the surf was pounding, 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 a new exercise room, a meeting room with a kitchen for parties, beautiful grounds and on-site rental management.

Perfect Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rent a lot on VRBO so I am very familiar with many types of rentals. This is one that I WILL go back to! My sister and I just returned from our sister trip at this condo and The location is literally perfect- from the beach and pool that are both just a very short walk to all the restaurants and shopping that are close by.

The condo is clean and comfy. The King bed is super comfortable and the bedrooms are very quiet and away from the living space. I can not wait to go back!!!! The 4th floor condo has the most amazing view and you are right in the center of the entire building. Beautiful, clean and convenient. What more can one ask for? And Liz (the owner) is so accommodating and easy to work with. She really does want you to enjoy your time here. I can't say enough good things.

One thing to keep in mind- the kitchen is not stocked with spices for cooking. Not even salt or pepper so take what you need and plan accordingly. (I totally understand for bug/pest reasons and wouldn't keep it stocked either, but just keep in mind when packing).

Owner's Response: I am so glad you both had a wonderful time! What a great suggestion for guests to bring their spices & foodstuff they'd like to cook, since the cookware all provided at the condo. I will add that helpful packing hint to the website! I hope you're able to return often and stay in touch!

Annual trip in a new unit

  • 5 of 5

We come to this beach each year in the early spring, and this is our third year in this building but our first in this unit. This building is smaller than some that surround it, so the beach is never as crowded as others nearby. The glass balcony rail allows the beautiful view to be enjoyed even if the weather is slightly cool. The kitchen is terrific for light cooking because who wants to do more on vacation? The bedroom set up is terrific so the late nighters and early risers don't disturb each other. We are enjoying this unit and hope to make it our annual March destination.

I have never been on a vacation that supplied my entire family with easy access fun! The location of the condo was perfect because it was close to everything. One thing that was unique was the clear glass on the lanai that looked out into the ocean instead of slates. Also the pool glowed in the dark! All in all it was a great vacation and I am excited to take my family back in the spring!!

We could not have picked a more pleasant, comfortable and enjoyable place to stay. The apartment was clean, well furnished and convenient to restaurants and entertainment. We look forward to applying early for next years stay.

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.

That is my usual place to sleep and love to hear the ocean and watch the glow of the moon-lit pool change colors from blues to greens. If you leave the living room custom curtains open, you'll catch the sunrise--and won't forget it.
