Always a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year to stay in a Slotter condo at Sterling Sands. It was a great week even with the rain! Unit was clean and spacious. The view can't be beat. The gulf front balcony is a great place to eat breakfast or enjoy a good book. The Slotters have always been very responsive to any issues. I plan to stay in one of their units on my next trip to Destin. Condo is conveniently located to restaurants and shopping. Most importantly to me, it is walking distance from The Back Porch. Having a washer and dryer in the unit allowed for us to pack lighter and made it easier when we returned home because I didn't have to wash a ton of dirty laundry. Definitely recommend this unit!

Absolutely loved our stay at Sterling Sands! The location was prime and our condo unit was beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful area of Destin Florida! First of all, Barry the condo owner was super easy to deal with and very prompt with a response. The location of Sterling Sands was absolutely prime and central to everything. Our condo unit was beautifully decorated with all fresh and new updates and the amenities were all amazing! The view from the balcony was breathtaking and gaining a prime spot on the beach was no issue at all. We look forward to returning to this beautiful area and would not hesitate to rent this unit time and time again!

My new home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I love this condo, we will definitely be returning to this unit. Loved the huge balcony with access from the master and the living area, loved the walk in closet, 2 bedrooms were not close together do everyone had their own space, loved the beach hairs and umbrella that was included and the short walk to the beach. I could have stayed a lot longer. I love the location, we were centrally located to everything we needed. The condo was very well kept and the complex was well taken care of. One of the things I really enjoyed was that it was a smaller complex (7-8 stories). I think we visited the busiest week of the year and we were always able to get a good parking space no matter what time we came in we always had parking available with a short walk, this has always been a problem at other places we visited.

Great condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

Condo is very spacious and well maintained. Offers a great view of the ocean, beach and pool. The beach service is a nice perk and since we were travelling earlier in the year with two little kids, we very much enjoyed that the pool was heated. Walmart and many other amenities are close by, car is recommended though. Barry is very responsive and easy to deal with.
