Description from owner

Need a beach vacation! I would love to help!! We enjoy spending time in our vacation home and truly want the same for our guests! I retired in 2012 with 30 years in Education and managing our vacation home is my "retirement" job. I am always available to answer questions by phone/text/email. We sold our one bedroom vacation home at Tidewater Beach Resort in October 2015. The next day, we closed on this two bedroom vacation home at Sterling Reef Resort.

Our 3rd floor 2 bedroom/2 bath vacation home at beautiful Sterling Reef has a large ocean front master bedroom with a comfortable king size bed and sliding doors to your over sized ocean front balcony. What an amazing experience to open your eyes and see the emerald ocean without getting out of bed! The master bath has a large garden tub with shower and walk-in closet. The living area has a commercial queen sleeper sofa, 50" HD TV and another entrance to the balcony. Our second bedroom contains a queen size bed as well as a twin bed with another large closet and full bath. Our kitchen has granite counters, full size refrigerator with water and ice in the door, as well as, a ceramic top stove, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen is furnished with plates, utensils, small appliances, and coffeemaker. Our dining table seats four with space for three more at the granite bar. The washer and dryer are in an enclosed area for convenience and noise reduction. Our balcony is the perfect place to start and end your day with an amazing view of the ocean. Two reserved beach chairs with umbrella are available during your stay from March 1-October 31.

We have 3 flat screen TV's - 3 DVD players - Beach Towels - Beach Toys -Porta Crib and Beach chairs/toys/towels for your use and comfort. Just in case it rains, we have board games, DVDs, playing cards books, and magazines.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Twin Bed, 1 Sofa Bed

“Fun time!”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2016

The weather had to catch up with our lovely condo. Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. Plenty of hot water for everyone. Close to everywhere we wanted to go. I really appreciated how quickly the elevators worked and the availability of restrooms near the pool and beach.

“Weekend Getaway”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2016

We had a fabulous time at Sterling Reef! We were down to attend my granddaughter's cheer competition and were so pleased that it was in walking distance! The condo is beautiful, comfortable and cozy, with everything you could need right there. The beds were really comfortable. The view from the balcony is wonderful. We sat out there each morning and evening! The location of Sterling Reef is great, as it is close to our favorite restaurants and shops! The staff was so helpful and accommodating, and renting from the Howard's was a pleasure because of the great communication! We enjoyed the free movie rental and the beach chairs. Parking is easy and convenient. We are definitely planning to come back!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for staying with us! I do love the convenient location of Sterling Reef. We are so happy you had a memorable vacation and hope you'll stay with us again very soon!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Everything about our vacation here was perfect! The condo is beautiful and so well stocked! We loved beginning and ending our days on the huge balcony. The view of the east and west coastline goes on forever and the sunsets were amazing! The owners were so responsive and wonderful to work with. We decided this would be our forever beach vacation home! You won't go wrong with the Howard's beach condo!

Thank you for choosing our vacation home! We love spending time here and truly want the same for our guests. Can't wait for you to return!

We've always stayed (for years) at another condo for our yearly family vacation. When it had already booked at the time we needed, the Howard's condo came strongly recommended. Needless to say, we were not disappointed!! The owners go over the top to make their guests welcomed, supplied with EVERY need possible, and to truly make it feel like a cozy home on the beach! The Howard's condo will now be our new and favorite place to stay, and we highly recommend it!

We are so happy you found us and hope we will be your "forever beach home!" Thank you so much for your kind words-we have the best guests!

This condo is beautifully decorated and has all of the utensils needed for a family. We had a great experience in this condo. The renters are awesome and want to help you with any and everything that they can. Look forward to future stays in The Howard's Condo.
My Response Thank You! We loved having your family and appreciate your kind words so much! I hope we hear from you whenever you need some time at the beach!

We just spent our second winter at this beautiful condo, escaping the cold Ontario winter. It is right on the beach and the view of the Gulf is amazing. The condo has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The owners are very accommodating and excellent to work with. The location is close to shopping, restaurants, movie theatres and has easy access to major highways. There is a gated parking garage and the building has onsite security 24/7. We have already booked for next year and feel very much at home every time we come back here. Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers
