Best condo we have stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best condo my family and I have stayed at. The condo complex was run well and well maintained. This unit was very nicely updated and had amazing views. The condo was spacious and very clean. The bathrooms and kitchen were beautiful. Having a parking space under the complex was very convienent. The beach service and set up everyday was very nice. The location of the condo is perfect. All restaurants and stores were minutes away, if not walking distance away. The beach and water were beautiful and the other guests and families at the complex were very nice. Barry and Sherry were great to work with. Our vacation happened to be during a time of a hurricane and they were gracious enough to offer us different dates to come to ensure we had the best vacation possible. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will definitely be back! Thank you!

Excellent service and stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five just finished our stay at Sterling Sands. The condominium is great. Everything was clean, neat and orderly. The condo was nicely apportioned. The staff at Sterling Sands were polite and accommodating. The pool and beach were well maintained. Most of all, the owners were extremely accommodating and responsive. We had a great stay, and would definitely come here again.

Another great vacation at Sterling Sands!

  • 5 of 5

We decided at the last minute to go to Florida, and once again, Sherry and Barry were there to help! This condo was awesome! It was larger than our previous condos, so the extra space was nice. The condo was very modern, and the huge balcony was great. The master bedroom, closet, and bathroom will spoil you! And of course it was clean upon arrival and all electronics, appliances, bathrooms, etc. functioned properly.

Sterling Sands, in our opinion, is one of the better places to stay in Destin. When you see the crowded beaches in front of the big high rise condo units, and the crowded pool with nowhere to sit, you'll appreciate Sterling Sands and the comfort it offers, along with a family friendly atmosphere. Across the street is "The Track", with putt-putt golf, go-carts, an arcade, and several rides for younger kids. Several restaurants are within walking distance ( we highly recommend Merlin's Pizza across the street for nights eating in at the condo), and grocery stores and Destin Commons mall is just down the street.

We would like to thank Sherry and Barry for all their help, and look forward to coming back next year!
