Great space, great views!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we loved the space. Plenty of room for the kids and my mom in the spare room. Great ocean views. We stayed here two years ago, and the updates made since then are fantastic. Only downside, the beds are a bit uncomfortable, but that may just be we prefer firmer beds. We stayed during tropical storm Alberto, and even with a little rain, we still had plenty of opportunity to go down to the beach and pool. we love the location because it is close to everything in Destin but the condo is quiet and great for families.

Great facility - Lots of room

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed Sterling Sands - Plenty of room, great pool, easy to get to the beach, close to everything we like to do in Destin and loved sitting out on the deck! The only downside was the wait for the elevators and the floors in the condo were pretty dirty (Everything else was pretty clean!)

Perfect Getaway!

Our family of 7 had a wonderful time at Sterling Sands 502! Our unit was clean, decorated nicely and had all the extra items needed to make for a perfect week! We love that this unit overlooks the pool and beach. We also like the location for proximity to fun restaurants, shopping, etc! We hope to back again next year!
