Ideal condo

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to return to every year. We believe we found that place and have reserved this condo for next year. John and Leslie own the condo. Leslie handles the reservation process which she made very easy and was always available for questions. John recently remodeled the condo, and it looks great. They are very particular about the appearance of the condo and are dedicated to their guests enjoyment of their stay.

The condo was very clean and neat when we arrived. It was fully stocked for the stay. The furniture and bed were very comfortable. The view of the beach and Gulf are fantastic not only from the balcony but also the kitchen and den.

Sterling Sands is well maintained. The grounds are manicured, the pool is heated and clean. There are stores and restaurants nearby.

Amazing Views and Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults with kids 16, 13 & 4) had a wonderful time at Sterling Sands 104. The condo was very clean and well kept. The kitchen was fully stocked even with a corkscrew for a bottle of wine. The only thing you need for your stay is a beach towel, bathing suit and sunscreen. The condo has everything you need to be comfortable.

The only struggle I had with the condo was the comfortable bed. I LOVED the bed!!! My struggle was I wanted to stay in bed but I also wanted to go to the beach. I compromised with nap time!

If you need more than rest and relaxation there is plenty of activities in the area. Parasailing, paddle boarding and go-kart racing were family favorites of ours!

Leslie was great! Our communication was effortless. She was fast on reimbursing our deposit too. They were wonderful to work with! I recommend staying here.

perfect place

  • 5 of 5

I rarely review anything but I felt the need for this one. I am one of those that looks at a thousand listings and every detail. After alot of search we settled on this condo. I am thrilled to death that we did. the condo was fantastic in everyway. The view from the balcony was amazing. The amenities in the condo where great and the room/bathroom sizes were perfect. You literally sink right into the beds. The complex itself is perfectly located. Only minutes away from everything. Shopping food and fun. This condo was also very reasonable on price in comparison to others especially for all that you get. I had reservations about being on the lower floor but it was very convenient and still allowed for great views. I highly suggest giving this one a shot. We had a blast.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo! It is updated and very clean! Being on the 1st floor makes it very convenient and has easy access to the pool and beach. We have stayed in many condos at this complex but this is by far our favorite place to stay! We look forward to planning our next trip to Sterling Sands #104!!!

Awesome beach times!

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice condo with a great view from the balcony! I loved being right on the beach. It was nice to have a good size kitchen too so we could cook some of our meals. Comfy bed too. I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! We have stayed in many condos in Destin, and this is by far our favorite! It had everything that we needed. The beds were comfy, everything was clean, there were even to go menus out for us. We have stayed on almost every floor in this condominium, and this one was our favorite view. Located on the first floor, you can view the beach and pool area easily (even the grill area). All places we wanted to go were right down the street. I would definitely recommend this condo. We will be back next year!
