Our stay was wonderful! The unit was very clean, spacious, and had everything we needed!
Holland P. Sep 2021
The two good things about this condo is the amount of space and the ease of parking. The parking lot is just yards from the main two elevators. This made unloading and loading very easy. The room was very spacious, which we needed because we had 4 children with us. The room was absolutely filthy. Immediately upon walking in, we noticed sand throughout the entire condo with the largest amount in the kitchen. Both bathrooms have rugs in them. As you sit in the bathroom you can watch tiny bugs crawling around the rugs, All of the fixtures have a thick adherent layer of dust including all of the decorations- shells, ceramic fruit. The dishwasher is basically not functional anymore as something is defective with the drain. If you interrupt the cycle you will see several inches of standing foul smelling water in the base of the dishwasher leaving all of the dishes coated a foul smelling film. I can look over the worn interior- paint and finish chipping off cabinets in kitchen and bathroom as well as the splotchy walls but the amount of filth, I cannot. If I consider staying at this condo facility again, I will tediously read every single review and will never stay in this room again. The cleaning crew should be fired. Please, someone with management take a gander into this condo.

The unit was clean and well maintained. It was quiet and we really enjoyed the Labor Day weekend. We will definitely book again. No issues at all.
Darla A. Aug 2021
Pros: great view, right on beach, grounds and pool were well maintained, size if condo was very roomy, staff was nice
Cons: toaster, disposal and light bulbs didn’t work. Needed a deep cleaning and to be updated, found a roach
Manager response:
Hi, Darla! Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are glad the location and views of our home worked well for you. We apologize for the issues you encountered. We have forwarded your review to our home manager to address and correct before our next renters. We hope we can have another chance to host you!

Sterling Beach 1005 was a wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable for 6 ladies; plenty of room, very clean. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook in. Would highly recommend and will stay again.
Pam G. May 2021
Loved this unit! Well decorated and perfect view. Sterling Beach is our favorite getaway & this unit did not disappoint.
Sarah S. Apr 2021
Based on the other reviews I expected better than what we got for the price. The facilities were great and I may come back but would try another unit. 1005 desperately needs a paint job, walls had dirt, base boards in the bathrooms have what looks like mold, the refrigerator interior needed to be wiped down, dishes put in the cabinets were not clean and one pan had a layer of grease still in it. You could see dirt buildup on several of the vents. The living room furniture is worn, the porch furniture is long over due, and one of the chairs in the dining area was broken. Linens were sparse. No beach towels so bring your own. We were provided 8 bath towels for 8 people. There was not a wine bottle opener and when we called the front desk we were told "sorry". Fortunately we met other vacationers and we were able to borrow the one from their unit. Ice trays had wholes in them. These are things so inexpensive to replace yet make a large impact on the guest experience it was shocking a +$3,000 a week rental would not include these basics.
Manager response:
Hi, Sarah! We are sorry to read you had any disappointments with your Vacasa experience. There is a wine opener now in the home, and an ice maker in the fridge. The owner has been made aware of the leak and need for repainting. Thank you!

Wilber R. Mar 2021
I loved this place great view on the beach great people just wished they had breakfast, and wished they would of told us we had to give our armbands back, we were already on our way back home 1hr 30min when we got our check out email and saw that armbans had to be token back or if nit we would have to pay 21dollars plus tax per each one, we had 7 of them so we had to turn around to take them back or pay the fee. but i will come back to same place and book with vacasa Wilma was a very great person.

We have stayed at this complex every year since it opened and every unit has been nice. What really stood out this trip was the group and in the front office and the gentleman that came up to help me with the TV. They all were awesome! Very friendly, quick responding and super helpful! I can’t say enough about them!!!!!
Cowart A. Sep 2020
It was spacious, clean, nice pool, nice staff, beautiful beach access that wasn't too crowded, and amazing balcony view. Definitely coming back!
Marsha C. Aug 2020
From the moment we walked in the home it was very clean and spacious. The view was gorgeous! We took our 18 year daughter and friend, they both had their own rooms and their own bathroom, which was nice for my husband and I. The owners had chairs and boogie boards which we enjoyed. The pool was clean and had plenty of chairs for everyone. The beach access was right there close by and easy. Beach area was clean and no trash anywhere. The area had several good, close by restaurants and shops that my daughter and I enjoyed. We loved our time there and will definitely be back!

The condo was very spacious. The view was amazing! A "starter pack" of supplies included dish washing liquid, dishwasher tablets, paper towel, tissue, and laundry detergent pods was provided. I would encourage families to also bring their own. Also bring extra towels. Being so close to the beach was awesome! It only took 2-3 minutes to go from our room to the beach. The beach area was not very crowded and wonderful! We were always able to find a nice spot close to the water without any issues.

The condo had some areas that need to be updated: the shower curtain rod was rusty and the patio furniture needs updating. Some of the furniture in the living room was comfortable but looked worn in some areas. There was also some beach items left for our use that was damaged, old and honestly needed to be discarded. Luckily we had our own.

Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely stay again.

The condo was clean and had everything one needed for a much needed escape from the craziness of the world to be with our whole family for the first time in 6 years

Loved the room. The staff was wonderful. The only problem me had was with parking.
