This is our 4th stay in this unit in 2 years, obviously we love it!!
Toni P. Nov 2022
The location is perfect. Close to St. Andrews State Park, and our favorite restaurants. I love Sterling Beach Resort. We have been coming here for many years. The condo was great! No big complaints at all. On 4th floor so high enough to see up close the beautiful gulf and hear the waves. The pool and grounds are very well taken care of. It looks as new as it did 15 years ago. If I were to be nit picky I would recommend bigger sheets for the master bed. It was super comfy with a plush topper but sheets barely fit over it all. Overall it was wonderful! My husband and I lost his dad on October 7th whom we took care of. We were looking for a quick relaxing retreat time after a very stressful year. We only live 30 miles away and knew Sterling would fit the bill. We were not disappointed! Thanks for taking such care and detail to a favorite spot of ours.

One of the best properties we have ever stayed in. Condo has everything you need for a great relaxing visit.
Andrea T. Aug 2022
Amazing location and view! Beautiful place also!! Exactly what the description said!! Loved this!! Just be sure to run and get your groceries or make plans if you get in late because there are NO extras such as coffee pods or salt and pepper or any seasonings at all! Not a big deal other than us getting in super late. Easy fix though!!

We have stayed at the Sterling Beach multiple times. This was the first time we booked through Vacasa. My experience with Vacasa was exceptional. The on sight office person was great. She had everything ready for us upon arrival so we were able to use the facility before our room was ready. Our room was ready a couple hours before check in time and she called and let us in early. I would definitely book through them again.

I would’ve rated our experience a 5 but the carpet in the unit needs to be replaced. It’s way overdue.
Manager response:
Hi, Mike! It's wonderful to read you were pleased with our services. The property manager will discuss the carpet with the homeowner. Thank you!
Michaela S. Jul 2022
We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. Everything was clean and very tastefully furnished. In reality, it was even nicer than the pictures! We will definitely stay here again.
John N. May 2022
This unit came equipped with extra towels and blankets which we appreciated. Unit was nicely decorated, as well. Unit is on 4th floor, to the left of the pool. Unit is also next to elevator but you can't hear it.
Alexandra F. Apr 2022
Honestly the pictures do not deceive. What you see is what you get and what you get is beautiful!! I would definitely stay here again. Everything was great - condo was clean and neat, pool was clean, beach access is easy. Only little annoyances were that the AC could have been better, especially for Florida, and the TVs are seriously old and outdated - we couldn’t get the one in the master bedroom to work. But that didn’t take away from the great time we had at all!
Manager response:
Alexandra, we are so glad that we succeeded in making your travel experience a memorable one and we appreciate you letting us know how we can improve. We are happy to report that the AC has been inspected, and the TV has been reset to the correct input. Your voice is important to us, and we take your suggestions to heart and will use them to continuously improve our guest experience. We hope to host you for a truly carefree getaway in the future!

Excellent location, quiet, family oriented, and nice

Sterling 403 will be remembered as one of my favorite destinations. The view from the balcony was the perfect. We were high enough to see over the trees, yet low enough to hear the pounding surf. The condo was spacious, the kitchen was extremely well equipped and the large windows were incredible.

As mentioned in other reviews the condo is next to the elevator but we never heard a noise from it or our neighbors when inside.

In fact, the only thing keeping our stay from being a full five star event was that the water heater can't fill the jacuzzi, I mean not even close. The only saving grace was the fact that there are four stock pots in the kitchen, adding four pots of boiling water allowed use of the jacuzzi in comfort. Also the advertised ration of towels and wash clothes were quite a bit short but a quick trip to the Vacasa office fixed the issue.
Tim I. Jan 2022
It is a very comfortable and relaxing condo. It is decorated great and feels very open and inviting. The view is spectacular. The master bedroom is great with balcony access along with the master bath with a roomy shower and jacuzzi. Also has amenities to take down to the spectacular beach. All around a great space with pool and beaches. It was a WONDERFUL stay and would most definitely get this unit again.
Marie H. Nov 2021
This is our 3rd stay in this unit since August 2020. We LOVE this unit! Read our other reviews to get a better understanding of why.
We will continue to come back to this unit, however this trip there was some minor cleaning issues. Walking in the sun beamed down on the glass dining table to reflect a layer of dust. The unit was occupied prior to us and housekeeping should have cleaned it. There also was apparently a pet in visits prior to ours as I ended up with animal hair on my socks after walking around, nothing extreme but a vacuum would have taken care of it.
Again, nothing that would keep me from using this unit again but with the fees that you pay, you expect it to be cleaned with basic cleaning.
I will say we did forget to start the dishwasher upon our exit, we apologize for this inconvenience to housekeeping.
We would like to see a larger TV added in the living room.
We look forward to future stays.

Sterling Beach is a great place to stay. Close beach access, great pool, and convenient to many restaurants.
Tina J. Jun 2021
This was our first trip to Panama City Beach and it could not have been more perfect. We had our two sons ages 7 and 12 with us and there was plenty to do. The area was great, the resort was great, pool was wonderful and the views of the beach are fabulous. We will definitely be coming back!!
Kimberly D. Apr 2021
Everything was perfect! We will definitely be back to this condo!!! Perfectly decorated for the beach, just what I wanted! Thank you!!
Louis K. Feb 2021
The pool, beach and location are excellent
Marie H. Feb 2021
The unit itself is awesome. We stayed in August 2020 and returned just 6 months later. The only thing I figured out this time versus last time, we attempted to use the jacuzzi tub but the hot water heater couldn’t hold up long enough to fill the tub up before it got cold. Even stopping and waiting 30 minutes it wouldn’t fill up enough with hot water to get just over the jets. Beds are comfy, LOVE the carpet! The unit is well stocked with plenty of great cookware and supplies: Enjoyed our visit!
MEADOW K. Feb 2021
This was a great room. It was big enough for all of us to be comfortable. The beds slept very well. The kitchen was well stocked. This is one of our favorite rooms in PCB and we will definitely be back!
Bruce & Deb H. Feb 2021
Beautiful condo, just as described. Wonderful beach with soft sand going on for miles. We had a minor problem with the clothes dryer and the on site Vacassa maintenance crew had it fixed in less than two hours after we reported it.
Heather D. Nov 2020
Great place! We will be back. Thanks for sharing your beautiful beach home.
Amy A. Sep 2020
We had a nice week. The condo is larger than expected. Beds were comfortable. Several kitchen appliances and lots of pots and pans, glasses, etc available. Close to the elevator so is a quick ride up and down. Pool and hot tub were clean. Beach was great. We rented beach chairs for the week. Everything very convenient. Quiet stay. Check in and out was simple. We recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay.
John P. Aug 2020
This place was stellar. Very nice and roomy. It felt like home from the time we arrived. The view was great and the location was prime. Walking distance to allot of good food and attractions. Beachfront was clean and well organized. Pool area was very clean. The gym area was awesome and clean. The staff in the checkin office were very nice and we were able to check in early. We liked it so much that we checked to see how much one of the unit that were sale was. Unfortunately it’s out of our price range, but they are super nice!
Marie H. Aug 2020
The unit is as described. View was spectacular!

PLENTY of kitchen ware/pots/pans/drink ware etc...for those concerned there is a crockpot(about 4qt). Beds were comfy!

LOVE having carpet but the rugs were hard on the feet so we just rolled them away from where we walked.

Right off the elevators; first unit to the right, no problems during our stay for noise as it didn’t seem super busy.

The ONLY complaint was the pool being closed longer than needed when weather was bad in the “area”. I understand closing due to lightning etc but it staying closed well over an hour after any storms had been was a bit much. I watched the radar and no lightning or severe storms in the area of a 10 plus mile radius. Could have been monitored more easily.

Also couldn’t reach anyone after hours to clear up a parking mishap, had to hunt someone down as no clear direction as to where to locate or contact someone. Should have a sign posted on office door where to find or call after hours.

Overall Very nice place, workers that we came in contact with friendly. Would stay again in same unit and possibly others if as the one we stayed in(#403)
Makel C. Jul 2020
Very peaceful getaway. Condo was beautiful and staff is very friendly & helpful with any questions we had.
A family friendly building that's not overly crowded. We've stayed here several times specifically because it feels like a home away from home and not a tourist trap like so many other Condos in PCB.
Blake B. Jul 2020
We were very satisfied with the condo. The condo is huge and was very clean.
Karen H. Jul 2020
Location, staff, and stay was amazing
John N. Jul 2020
This is our second visit to Sterling Beach and once again, we were not disappointed. This condo was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. The resort is meticulously clean and the onsite manager and the staff are friendly and helpful. We had a gorgeous view of the pool and a very short walk to the beach. We’ve stayed at several resorts in PCB but this is one we’ll definitely return to again and again!
Rebecca D. Jun 2020
Beautiful room, perfect place to vaca! I will be back!
Antoine Y. Mar 2020
The balcony was huge and well furnished. The condo itself is very well cared for and decorated beautifully. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans ,dishes and utensils. The best balcony we have ever had with an ocean front condo. Perfect unobstructed views from living room and master bedroom.
