About Ashley Lindsey

We are a young, fun-loving couple who enjoy staying at the beach, especially in Destin!

Ashley Lindsey purchased this condo in 2013

Why Ashley Lindsey chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We chose this property because we have another unit here and love the proximity to fine dining, great seafood restaurants, shopping, fishing, etc. We love to share our unit with others so you too can enjoy our favorite pastime!

What makes this condo unique

Being on the 2nd floor is highly convenient because there is only one flight of stairs to go up if you need to. It is also a very short walk to the beach!

Decent property, disappointing unit

  • 3 of 5

The overall property was nice....large pool and easy, quick access to the beach (about a three minute walk). Sits right behind The Back Porch restaurant, which had great food. Beach chairs available for daily renting. Our actual unit was quite disappointing though. Furniture was dirty, we washed the comforters the night we got there because they didn't appear clean, the refrigerator had a leak, we had to buy an iron because the one there didn't work and one of the toilets stopped working on the third day, leaving us with only one to use the rest of the trip. The bath towels were the worst I've ever used, as they didn't actually absorb water, they just wiped it off of you. The foldout mattress from the couch was too uncomfortable to actually sleep on. There is very little space to move around in bedrooms, so you either have to put all your clothes in drawers and closet, or step over your suitcase. Windows in each bedroom look out into a hallway and the unit is right off the elevator, so you hear all the noise of people coming and going. There is no actual view of the ocean in this unit, which was also disappointing. This unit is on second floor, I would guess 5th floor and above have ocean views. Overall, it was good enough, if only the unit met our expectations. We would not stay here again though.

Sterling Shores was beautiful... We loved it!

  • 3 of 5

The unit was okay... It wasn't as clean as I think it should have been. My grandsons feet were black on the first day from walking on the floor barefoot, crumbs under the toaster, under beds were yucky, no batteries in the tv remotes, no light bulbs in the lamps in master bedroom, and I moved the rug in the living room--dirty... I think maybe someone should check the cleaning crew...

But we loved the area...swimming pools and grass areas, close to Back Porch, and the beach accessibility...

Adorable Condo - Great location in Destin

  • 5 of 5

This is an adorable condo. Has become one of our favorite places to stay in Destin. I love that The Back Porch Restaurant is right there. No need to pack a cooler unless you just want to. When you want a cold drink or something to eat, just walk a few steps to place your order. There's even waitresses that come to you and take your order. No need to get up from your comfortable position. It's a true vacation with relaxation!

Awesome Property!

  • 5 of 5

Sterling Shores is our favorite place to stay! This unit is great for my mother, she doesn't like elevators and being on the 2nd floor is perfect for her. We can watch the kids play in the pool from the back porch while we enjoy the air condition! Love the new paint colors and will rebook this unit!

Good location, Good price

  • 4 of 5

Ashley, the owner, has great communication. The location is nice, and the price was good. The furniture could use some updating, but for the money, we couldn't complain. Thanks!

February 2016

  • 4 of 5

The property was a bit worn and could use some minor repairs, but overall the unit was comfortable and met expectations.

The owner was quick to respond to e-mails and was helpful.

Enjoyed just sitting on the balcony with a drink and soaking up the sun.

The Sterling Shores was undergoing a large maintenance program while we were there and it was noisy at times during the day but they were close to being done when we left. The Sterling Shores location is centrally located with easy access to the golf courses, shopping and restaurants. We really enjoyed the seafood at the Back Porch, which is just across the street from the back gate of the property next to the properties beach facility. The exercise room had all of the equipment anyone could need.
