Last week we stayed in Sterling Shores Resort for the first time. I
was a bit disappointed since they advertised as beach front, but had
read different on Trip Advisor right before leaving on our trip. As
others have stated the beach is across the street. It is a short walk,
but somewhat misleading when searching on the web for beach front
Sterling Shores is listed. If you are walking on the sugary white sand
and enjoying the aquamarine water and watching beautiful sunsets you
will definitely have a great time. Our accommodations were good for a
one bedroom unit. It was great having a washer dryer in the unit
besides a dish washer and a spacious bathroom. The sofa bed was
another story,,,very difficult to sleep on since springs were poking
my friend in the back! Remember if you are booking a 1 bedroom unit
you will be staying on the 2nd or 3rd floor and there is a very very
slight view of water. It is in a very convenient location for shopping
and our favorite restaurants. Everyone needs to try Merlin's Pizza
(Airport Road), especially if you can not ingest gluten. It's
When deciding to rent an umbrella and chairs for the beach for a week
we encountered two type of individuals. One guy (Jesse) is hardly ever
out on the beach and the other guy Michael was there 98% of the time.
He answered questions and noticed that he helped new moms carry
strollers, etc. He was very personable and took a valid interest in
his business as well as his vacationers. We would definitely rent from
Michael if we go back to that area.
Think the pools were the best part of the property.
