This condo is spacious with a nice view of the gulf. The pools are very nice, We visited in November and the heated pool was wonderful! There is shopping nearby to stock up on groceries and beach supplies. We loved our stay!

This condo was extremely clean and very comfortable for my family. There were three adults and four kids. Location was very convenient to restaurants, groceries, and entertainment. The beach was just a short walk. The pool was great and not crowded. The only cons were the kitchen was not very well appointed and in the early morning hours most days there was a lot of noise. I don’t know if it was coming from the elevator shaft or what but it was repetitive and ongoing for a long period of time. Overall we thought it was a great place to stay and would recommend it.

The balcony has a great view of the beach and pool. The room was spotless and had everything we needed. We were notified that the dryer and dishwasher were broken, and they repaired it in a timely manner.

This actually was our 3rd stay in this particular unit, 4th time to Sterling Shores! On the positive side of things, it is a spacious 3 bedroom unit that can comfortably sleep 4 adults and 3-4 children. It has 2 full size bathrooms and washer/dryer and kitchen. As I said, this is our 3rd time in this unit, so it obviously suits and fits our family of 6.

The 3 star rating is because in the last 4 years, there has been no real updates, only steady decline in the room. There is a rusty refrigerator, worn out pots and pans, kitchen utensils that are worn out, a dryer that is on its last legs....Carpet is very dirty and might just need replaced...Broken down couch...

It was disappointing to see no real upgrades in the room, but with the location of this unit and the amenities we were used to, it honestly was still functionable and we were still excited to be there again...Then, we headed to the beach...Before we even got off the elevator there were security guys asking my kids where their bracelets were and we needed to wear them. (A little aggravating, but understandable to keep unregistered folks out). We continued on down to the ocean, where we are met with guys telling us they worked for Sterling Shores and the neighboring properties...We needed to take our chairs and cooler and sit on the back row behind 8-10 rows of umbrellas and property setups...Can’t see the ocean really from there and the kids can’t be supervised....Social distancing??? No way, packed like sardines in there! Or, we could reserve two hard wooden chairs for the week! No way!

So, for the first 3-4 days, we just took our stuff up the beach a ways and nobody said anything (Inconvenienced a little, but making due). Then we go back out on the 5th day or so and are told that we will be asked to leave even if we go to the neighboring property...So, in short, this was our 4th and final stay at Sterling Shores.

-Beautiful spot!
-Way overcrowded, too many units for not nearly enough beach space!
-Tried calling Vacasa upon driving 10 hours to see if we could perhaps hang out at the pool and beach for a couple of hours since we’d gotten there a little early...Got a call back the next day...With a reminder to wear the bracelets and not to lose one or it would be $25, and to enjoy the trip
-Aging property, unit owners not investing into upgrades, area has outgrown the accommodations and it is not desirable for a relaxing atmosphere. Even with all the restrictions and rules, saw many unregistered guests, honestly having a better time for free using the amenities...

Manager response:
Hello, Kermit! Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you are a returning guest with us at Sterling Shores and apologize that this visit was not a satisfactory experience. We have worked with our local staff to maintain and update the home as needed and hope for a chance to impress you in the future!

Sterling Shores is our favorite place to stay in Destin. The room was incredible! The view from the balcony was perfect. Room 918 was very clean and fully stocked for all of my family’s needs. We can’t wait to stay there again!
