Nice house but you can hear every little noise.. Maybe put carpet on Steps to help a little.. Since the ocean was awesome, would consider ocean front Home..Our house was extremely clean and the deck with shade was perfect for our 8 month old grandson. None of the Restaurants took Reservations.. Had to wait an hour or more..House was conveniently located to Publix and Shopping..Rented a Golf Cart to cruise up and down Scenic 98 which was awesome! A Great Vacation!!

Family Honeymoon

May 15, 2012

Our family loved this beach house. My 31 year old son recently died in an auto accident . So 90 days later the wedding took [place as planned and the family took a family vacation honeymoon. The Bride & Groom stayed on the top level, and the rest of us spread out through out the home. Plenty of room, with a lot to do. We stayed in Destin once before, and loved it, so when we found this home we all knew it was meant to be. The house was very well kept, decorated nicely and had all the convinces of home. The pools we always up and running, very clean. The neighborhood was beautiful, peaceful and just a short walk to the ocean. The nearby shopping was GREAT! between the outlets and wonderful restaurants it was hard to leave. I would highly recommend this home and would definitely love to stay there again. Thank You so much! Just what the doctor ordered.

The house is absolutely beautiful and spacious. We arrived to a clean, well maintained house and property. Plenty of beds and different rooms for private and communal space for a group. Not to mention the simple, stylish decor and beautiful, interesting art work throughout the house. The washing machine and dryer were wonderful extras to have. The full kitchen and grill were also very nice. Great for a group of friends or extended family to get away. The pool and guest house are a wonderful addition for extra space and fun. The location of the house is only a 5 minute walk from the beach and in a clean, nice neighborhood. Shopping and restaurants are close by. I highly recommend this house and plan to go back myself.

Review Submitted: July 7, 2009 Date of Stay: March 2009
As this was my first-ever visit to this region of Florida, I had no past experiences upon which to base any expectations. I was, however, quite aware of the hype surrounding the pearl-white sand, crystal-clear waters and unequaled sunsets. To say that my experience lived up to this hype is a gross understatement. Aside from the truly awesome beaches which were literally a five-minute walk from Sterling Stay, the house itself was an equally refreshing change of pace that was well-received by everyone in our group. The house has a certain character that - while unique - is not overbearing. Anyone can feel at home at Sterling Stay. Its amenities, and its proximity to beaches, restaurants, and all types of shopping allowed us to escape the inconveniences of every-day life and enjoy the simple pleasures of great weather and great company. I recommend Sterling Stay to any group seeking a relaxing, care-free environment.

Ten of us spent Thanksgiving week in this lovely home. The property was very clean and in excellent condition. Many amenities are provided by the owners including a well-equipped kitchen, beach toys and chairs, comfortable bedding, etc. The owners were very kind and helpful and returned our security deposit quickly. The property is so close to the beach that you really do not notice the half-block walk. The neighborhood and community are wonderful and everything you need as far as groceries, shopping, and restaurants are right there. We had one issue with a clogged bathtub drain and that was fixed within a couple hours. The bunk bedroom is pretty small, but our teens spent most of their time outside of the bedroom so that was not a problem for the stay. Be sure to bring extra toilet paper as we ran out. It would have been nice to enjoy the pool, but the weather was in the 60s and the air temperature didn't make it conducive for swimming. However, we were able to enjoy the pool area. The cabana house is also very nice. We all agree that we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
