I loved the entire experience!!! The condo was amazing. The ocean view was everything. Everything was in walking distance. I’d definitely come back.

The home is in an amazing location with easy and private access to the beach and a great heated pool and hot tub for full day of fun. Kids loved it through and through.

We would stay at the facility again, but not in this u it again. There were way too many “cons” on the list. We were there over the long Thanksgiving weekend and it was fine for a short stay but wouldn’t have wanted that for a longer stay. We really wanted to be fair here, so this is a pretty comprehensive list. We travel a lot and are super familiar/comfortable with condo rentals. We did try to contact management on the day of our arrival however it was Thanksgiving and the person at the # seemed unaware that there was no one working locally at the facility over the holiday weekend. Signs posted near the office stated that it was closed for the holiday weekend. We had two adults and two grown kids (20 & 25.)
Pros: Spectacular view
Comfy couches
Comfy beds
Soft, comfy blankets, rugs and pillows
Located near lots of restaurants and activities
Nice outdoor patio furniture
Outdoor area is well kept
Cons: EVERY single wall needs to be painted and needs some type of repair! There are screws and nails coming out of the wall everywhere from changed/moved items on walls.
Dated decor - mirrors everywhere, carpet feels icky in bedrooms
The bed in the 2nd bedroom literally goes from one wall to the other (headboard to footboard). You cannot walk around the bed. You have to climb off of it from the far side, climbing over the other person. Should definitely be a bunk bed situation in there! Something smelled dead in the 2nd bathroom the entire time, like there was something dead in a vent. The ice maker makes almost no ice.
So many of the outlets do not work in every room. Most of the top outlets in the master bedroom didn’t work and some in the 2nd bedroom as well.
Tv in 2nd bedroom is the size of a laptop screen and has no remote so you have to control it using buttons on the back.
Sliding bathroom door to 2nd bedroom sticks pretty badly.
Glass doors out to patio are EXTREMELY difficult to open.
One elevator wasn’t working a good portion of the time and both were super slow.
Wi-Fi is very spotty. Don’t plan on working remotely or attending class while you’re there.
Smoke detector dangling from the ceiling in hallway.
Manager response:
Hi, Michael! Thank you for telling us about your stay. This home has new owners that are in the process of remodeling. We look forward to sharing the final improvements with our guests.

Check in was Different, but Easy. Check out Out was Even Easier. The Staff was Helpful and Friendly. The Two Bedroom two Baths was Amazing. Very Clean and Very well decorated which made me feel right at home. I Would most certainly Stay again.
Kendra H. Aug 2021
Let me start by saying we loved our stay at Sterling Sands. Only a couple of things you should know about this particular property. It’s in a great location, close to the elevator, pool and beach access. Small problems would be that’s it’s very dated, carpets in the bedrooms need replacing, beds are hard as rocks and the street noise is pretty bad at night. Aside from those little things it was a okay place. Would stay at Sterling Sands again but would definitely pick a different condo for the money!
Dee B. Aug 2021
The balcony view was amazing, beautiful condo! A little slice of Beach Heaven.
Billy J. Jun 2021
Nice views and cold AC
Latasha S. Jun 2021
The Beachfront view is breathtaking, Loved waking up to the sounds of the Ocean!
Linda F. May 2021
Convenience to pool and beach Good security. Grounds was clean but the condo was dated and dirty. It was in dire need of a professional cleaning. Overall nice place to visit.
Manager response:
This home was recently purchased by a new owner who will be renovating after the busy season. A deep clean will be done at that time. Thanks, Linda!
Pamela R. Apr 2021
Condo was clean. Perfect location. Would love to go back.
Radhika P. Oct 2020
Where do I began? Very old facility - everything is worn out and falling apart. The sliding doors to the laundry machines is completely broken and just sitting there. Safety hazard for my one year old daughter. All fixtures rusted. Mirrors rusted. Carpet in closet has a huge gap. Ice machine not working. Tub stopper broken and put on the side of the tub. Shower heads are rusted and molded.
Manager response:
Hi, Radhika! We appreciate your review and are sorry to read the home was not in better shape for you. We did call after your arrival to ensure you were happy and wish you had let us know of your concerns at that time. The laundry door has been repaired, the ice maker has been turned on, and we will be looking at your other concerns during the off-season. Thank you!
Donna H. Aug 2020
The condo is a perfect location. Everything was in order upon my arrival. These are older units and therefore slightly outdated. The owners could update the bed Linens . The bed spread was dark colors , which didn’t see
To fit the beach atmosphere.. the sheets were older/worn and hard.. either update to a higher count or use a bit of fabric softener.
But again, all that is personal preference..
I will come back to Sterling Sands.
The management team was the best I’ve seen.. from the grounds, pool to the condo!!!
The N is missing on the entrance sign coming in, but I’m sure it’s been ordered to replace..
actually, I’ll see y’all In October!!

This place was perfect for us. Great beachfront view and a beautiful home!
Kevin H. Feb 2020
It was really nice. Good beach. Good unit. No complaints
Yvonne A. Jan 2020
This was just a last minute Christmas present for us. The unit was beautiful, different from the pictures but was absolutely gorgeous and we had such a blessed holiday. We might have found our new tradition. Pool was cleaned every morning and heated year round which was great.

Exceeded expectations
joann m. Nov 2019
My mother and I just decided on a whim to go to the beach for a few days. It was so beautiful and will plan a trip for longer in the future
MIRIAM F. Sep 2019
This place was beyond amazing. The staff called daily to make sure everything was going well. They also let us know where to find good food, since it was our first time there. The best part is that we were right in front of the beach. Amazing views and beautiful sunsets.
Dana J. Sep 2019
Our family had never been to Destin before. We will definitely be coming back. Everything was wonderful from our stay, our condo, the restaurants, the extra curricular activities, thank you so much for your hospitality.

Everything about this trip was wonderful and it started with the Co. ndo that we had the pleasure to enjoy while on our quick last minute 4 day get away! Very clean and so well maintained that we were planning our return trip to Destin and inquired about how to make future reservations to make this our repeat "go to" condo every time we go to Destin (3-4 times a year)! This was like a home away from home, comfortable, clean and very well provided. Truly a rare find but I don't want to say too much, ya'll will figure it out and I won't be able to get all the dates I want....Ha Ha!
LaCarlus M. Jul 2019

Bobbie D. Jul 2019

We love Sterling Sands and this was our third year staying in your condos. We will be back again next year.

The condo were clean and the view from the balcony is great. My only complaint is that the condo was rather small. But will definitely consider staying here again.

Several members of my family and I were guest at Sterling Sands in March. We were very happy with the condo. It was clean and furnish nicely. We plan to reserve a condo at Sterling Sands when we visit the beach again. Reservation Process: It was quick and easy. It was a good value for the money. The condo was clean and furnished as advertised.
