I took my son and 3 of his buddies to Destin, FL on their fall break. We enjoyed our vacation condo at Sterling Sands. Everything was clean, beautiful with great staff to add to our stay. The pool was nice and clean. Most of all Sonya was a great additional to our stay. She was very attentive to us. We... More

Everything about this place worked out perfectly for us. We got the standard 2 bedroom with a bunk bed in the 2nd room for the kids. The full kitchen was full appointed and very nice, we typically ate breakfast and lunch in the Condo. There are BBQ grills and many were also grilling out for dinner, you don't have to... More

We have stayed here many times in the past, but this is our last time. We were visiting with other people and were told of possible BED BUGS on the fifth floor where we were staying. We went down to talk with manager and she not in office. But as I was getting on elevator and asked if she was... More

While we appreciate that you wanted our opinion on whether or not bed bugs were present, in this case-they were not. The small flecks on the brand new mattress were merely lint or small crumbs. The unit was certified bed bug free just to be 100% sure. We certainly did not have any issue moving you to another room of... More

Myself along with my husband and 2 of our friends had stayed in condo 807 on 8th floor. As soon as we opened the door there was an overwhelming smell of cat urine. It was as though a male cat had sprayed all over, especially in the smaller room with the Murphy bed. All 4 of us sniffed the carpet... More

While we are sorry to hear of your disappointment, at the time the odor was reported there was no evidence of a cat nor is that what the inspector smelled, he recalled a food odor from the last guest and possibly whatever they cooked that morning before they checked out. We did offer and send someone up to deodorize as... More

Ok so we were in room 707, when we walked in it looked familiar to us, it's the unit pictured on hotels.com! Unit was awesome, only complaint on the room was the tv in the guest room. 12 local access channels not full cable like the master and living room but there was a DVD player. Pool was great, we...

This is our 2nd stay in unit 101. We book directly through the owner and he is amazing! Condo review: The unit itself is perfect for 2 families. We traveled with another couple and 5 kids total and this condo suited our needs perfectly. Rob has updated the condo and decorated it very nicely. He takes pride in his home... More

The beach service is a separately operated company. Their hours are 9am to 5pm. If you rent the beach chairs, those are the hours of operation. The beach service does provide (but doesn't have to) a small space in the middle of the set ups for individuals who purchase their own beach chairs, etc. They have never permitted privately owned...

The rental chair business here has the entire water front of the beach occupied, they do however leave about 20 feet open for everyone that couldn't rent a chair. However our stay here was only a week and all chairs where reserved so we got to see sand, umbrellas and sky. They set the umbrellas so close together you cannot... More

We stayed in unit #603. It was a little dated but had all of the basics. Best of all- it was on the beach. Each unit is decorated differently. We rented our unit through Southern Vacation Rentals. The downside was the walk from off of the elevators to through the pool area to the beach which smelled of mildew. If... More
