Why Dinah Williams chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

I have been vacationing in the panhandle area for years. I have found mid Destin to have the most beautiful sand, and absolutely fell in love with Sterling Sands. It is a wonderful resort because it is large enough to provide great amenities (8 stories, 110 units), but small enough to provide a peaceful, family friendly vacation.

What makes this condo unique

I completely remodeled this unit, and had the assistance of 2 professional decorators in selecting the decor. It is so comfortable. I know you will really enjoy it too!

The family loved it. Amenities were great. The condo is beautiful and comfortable. Great scenery from the balcony and convenient to places for family entertainment and dining. We could not have picked a better place.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay! The condo is beautiful! Marble counter tops, neat & clean and the location of the unit was high enough to see the beautiful emerald water, beach and pool below and low enough to see the dolphins play. The air conditioner worked great. Kept the condo nice and cool for sleeping. The water pressure was better than I have at home! Big TV's. The kitchen has everything you need. We bought a whole bunch of seafood at the Ice House and tried all kinds of fish that we can't get at home. Trigger fish was my favorite. I have bad knees, and the elevator was close to the door, and trash shoot just down the hall. The condos are one of the closest walks to the beach than the other condos. Because of my knees needed to get close as possible! Free chair set up waiting for you when ever your ready! We loved just sitting out on the balcony watching the ocean. It seemed almost like a private facility. I felt like I belonged there! Permanent residences are very nice to the guests, by greeting us in the elevator or answering a question. They treat you as if you're their neighbor! The pool was warm and clean and just down the elevator. Located through a tunnel in parking garage. No tracking through a lobby in your wet suit. Bathrooms and vending/ice machines down there also, so you don't have to go to your condo. But most, is the location of the building. Shopping, gift shops, liquor store, pizza and subway across street, no need to get in your car. Building smack dab in the middle of everything! One way Destin Commons, Whole Foods, Walmart and the other is the Harbor Walk to rent boats or schedule water activities. The owner Dinah was a pleasure to work with. I had a special request that she took care of for me. Thank you Dinah! I hope we can come back many more times! Everything about this place we loved! It was a great girls vacation!

Lovely Condo with Great View

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Destin, and would definitely recommend this unit to others. It is very clean and updated. The view is gorgeous, and the pool is very nice. We enjoyed the beach service daily on the beautiful beach. The unit is close to many restaurants and other activities. It was the perfect location. The owner was wonderful to work with, and we hope to come back soon.

Sincerely,

Family from Ohio
