Our room was very clean when we arrived. Only thing I didn’t like was the bedrooms are on the street side and not beach side but still a great place to stay 😊

Never find nobody who can help to put clean stuff or change trash bags , If is supposed we are on vacation that is why we pay alot for has a good vacation, on the case we need to buy everything and change trash and clean every day room I stay home .
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Patricia. We do state in guest confirmation and check-in emails that there is no daily maid service and that we only provide a starter kit of consumable items such as toilet paper, detergent, etc. We apologize if this came as a surprise.

We enjoyed our stay. Was surprised when asked to empty the trash upon departure, after paying over $1000 for a 3-night stay. The unit is in great need of a new couch. It says badly toward the middle making it uncomfortable to sit in.

We really enjoyed our stay in Destin! The water never disappoints with its beauty. We saw dolphins every day! We enjoyed going to The Track for go karts and putt putt. Sterling Sands is great because it’s in walking distance to restaurants and shops. The Back Porch was amazing as was the dolphin tour of the harbor! We thoroughly enjoyed the ocean and the heated pool since it was a little chilly in late April. The only slight hiccup to 404 is the second bedroom is a little small, but worked fine for our kids (10 & 13). I would highly recommend Destin and Sterling Sands as a vacation destination!!!

After the initial shock of the size of the unit was gone, all turned out well. This unit is well suited for a couple but the second bedroom is the size of a large walk-in closet. Now with that said, the kitchen is fully equipped and recently remodeled. There is plenty of water pressure, hot water and nice towels. Like new washer/dryer and all of the basics to start you off. The view is excellent, you are looking over the pool, spa, and green area to the gulf. Security and help with wi-fi are all a phone call away. You can walk out to the beach and turn left to walk down to the Back Porch restaurant for a casual meal. My wife and I each took one of the bathrooms. As far as suggestions, there use of heavy dark furniture did not help and for the kitchen, who does not have a Keurig coffee maker. If you are going as a couple this should do the trick for you.

Wonderful view of the ocean, which allowed us to see the dolphins when they came by. Nicely furnished, very comfortable. In the heart of things, but the condo was well-insulated to where we did not hear the traffic. We would definitely stay there again!

View and facility were great, 2nd bedroom very small. Mattresses for kids only. Couch sagging in middle. Used other units wifi.
Manager response:

Great trip. Very clean. Location perfect. Recommend this place. The only issue we had was the wifi. Faded in and out alot, especially in the living room which was closer to the beach.

We have stayed at Sterling Sands for probably 20 years. Beach service is great. 404 was comfortable and clean. We love the glass balcony railing for enjoying the view.

We've stayed here several times over the years. Love the location and the master bed was very comfortable. Easy access to the beach.
Brandi R. Jun 2020
I had an issue with my master bedroom cable not working ..
They instantly sent someone to fix it while i was on the beach ..
Staff kept texting me to see if i was happy ..Most condos ive stayed at before never had this level of customer service ..I am beyond pleased .The view is amazing and its so close to walmart and restaurants. I will be staying again .
