About Liz Harris

I'm the ultimate beach lover. Anything 'beach' as long as I'm facing directly to the ocean or Gulf 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 25 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 Destin

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, including the incredibly unique Harborwalk Village. Where else can you get world-class fishing, restaurants, shopping, golfing and powder-white sand steps away? You can catch the sunrise AND sunset from my private lanai.

What makes this condo unique

When I walked into this Sterling Sands condo with the surf dazzling turquoise 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 an exercise room, a meeting room with a kitchen for parties, outdoor grilling area, beautiful grounds and I have a maintenance and cleaning team in place on-site for your needs.

I am including the costs of the beach chair and umbrella service each day you are there between March 1 and Oct. 31. The apartment is so comfortable and the view so breathtaking, it is always very difficult to head home. Once you try it, I'm sure you'll return season after season. I welcome feedback and strive to keep the place pristine, comfortable and everything you'd want in your beach trip. If you need daily cleaning I can put you in direct contact with my cleaning crew to arrange for guest-expense daily cleaning or assistance. I also have signed up for on-site maintenance--like light bulbs or other appliance-assistance you may need. Just call Ron--his number is on my welcome page that I'll send you just before your arrival.

Amazing Condo and Owner

  • 5 of 5

Liz is amazing to work with. She is so willing to accommodate and make sure you are well taken care of. The condo was perfect. Well taken care of. Great view of the ocean and pool. We will definitely be staying there again in the future.

Impressed with the convenience!

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival, the pool and beach was visable through the double sliding glass doors the width of the room!!! I thought the condo was gonna be very small, but the common area was a very nice space! Even with the couch pulled out as a bed! Liz was great , not that we had to contact her! Everything we needed was sent in welcome package and reminders posted on fridge! I plan to return to her condo again! Great location we had small kids, young adults and myself. We all enjoyed!!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beachfront condo! The location and heated pool were great and the beach was spectacular. We really appreciated the prepaid beach chairs that Liz provided. The condo was spacious, easy to access, and they had plenty of carts to help you get your items from the car to your place. The furnishings are kind of worn and tired but had the essentials. The condo wasn't dirty by any means, but I did feel like it could use a deeper clean. Also, we visited during spring break, and the pool chairs were claimed by 8 am. If you're hoping to get a chair by the pool, get out there early. Thanks, Liz, for a nice stay and for making yourself available by phone and text if we needed anything.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! It means a lot to me when you enjoy your stay and take the time to guide me in my next furnishing upgrades— I’m on it! Follow up: I arraigned for an additional deep-clean, bought that new 55" TV and am dining room furniture shopping now...

Quiet, private beach, nice pool and hot tub.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The beach was quiet, not a lot of people and the heated pool and hot tub was nice. The condo was clean, nice kitchen. The only thing that needed updating was the mattress, was well used and the couch was ridiculously stiff, comical even how uncomfortable the couch was, neither of us used it. Not major, but the large tv was in the bedroom and a small one in the living room. Since my husband was watching basketball tournaments, it would have been nice for him, but I wasn’t there to watch tv, so not major for me.

Once those two items (worn mattress and stiff couch) get updated, it would be an excellent condo because the rest of the condo was clean and had a beautiful view. The owner was very communicative and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feedback!! The couch, alas, is new and stiff, I'm so sorry! I bought it specifically because it's an amazing sleeper mattress, which may be why it is so stiff, or because it's new. Great idea about switching and putting the larger TV in the living room and the LR TV in the master bedroom. Follow up: I left the big TV in the master bedroom and bought a new 55" smart-tech TV for the living room. The master bedroom king mattress is only 3 years old so I hired someone to flip it!

Excellent condo and overall rental experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable experience renting this unit for our first time vacationing in Destin with 2 teenage kids. Unit is clean and nicely updated as shown in pictures. The balcony overlooks the pool and beach and we got a kick out of seeing dolphins each day. Liz was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive to all questions. She even includes beach chair service which was a big benefit and money saver. The beach area was way less crowded than other hotels down the beach which was really nice and kids loved the heated pool. Will definitely rent again next time we get a chance to visit this great town...whole family loved the trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you kindly! All of your insights were very helpful, particularly about the fact my beach was less crowded than the other resorts. I didn't know that. I look forward to when you can return to visit!

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.
