Sterling Shores condo description
Our Penthouse is continuously being updated. Now with a 55' flat screen TV and free NETFLIX. We've also added new bedroom furniture, washer/dryer/dishwasher, kitchen granite counter tops and new cabinets. The living room has been updated with a leather rocker and two new chairs. Pics are up-to-date. Balcony views are the best in Destin. Includes a covered parking space near the elevator. This is a smoke free condo and no pets are allowed.
Sterling Shores is considered one of the best family oriented resorts in Destin. Located on Route 98 about 2 miles West from the intersection of 98 and the Mid Bay Bridge with the Destin Commons shopping Mall on the corner. The resort features plush landscaping, two pools, gated entrance, large exercise room, wireless high-speed internet in each condo, a 42-seat surround-sound theater and private beach.
You will be amazed as you step onto the balcony for a panoramic view of the ocean. This spacious, 1700-square-foot top floor unit is the largest 3BA/2Br unit in Sterling Shores. It is one of only four 'Islamorada' floor plans and is 300 square feet larger than the 'Key West'. Featuring vaulted 12-foot ceilings with transom windows which create a bright and airy environment. The balcony has superb views to the south, east, and west as this portion of the building projects forward of either end.
The living/dining room is almost 20 feet by 22 feet allowing you to relax or entertain after a day at the beach with plenty of room or watch TV on the 55-inch screen. Although you will likely eat out at the many nearby restaurants, the kitchen is large and fully equipped. The master bedroom looks directly out onto the gulf with a walk-in closet and spacious bathroom with separate shower and whirlpool tub.
From the pictures you will note the grounds at Sterling Shores are a tropical paradise. Lush palm trees and landscaping surround a 4300-square-foot heated lagoon pool with a second pool on the beach with snack bar. Beach umbrellas and chairs are available for a daily or weekly fee.
Other features of Sterling Shores includes wireless high-speed Internet service FREE, a private gulf-front beach club, a 42-seat surround-sound theater, fitness center, and this unit comes with a covered parking space 50 feet from the elevator inside the building.
Nearby amenities include the popular Big Kahuna water park, 'The Track' raceway, miniature golf, and many nearby restaurants within a five-minute walk including the Ruth Cris, Back Porch and Jim & Nicks Barbeque. WalMart is less than 1/2 mile and Fresh Market 1 mile away.

Love this Unit!
Love this Unit!
We have stayed at the Sterling Shores three times before this visit. Location is great. Lots to do around the resort. This unit was by far the nicest we have stayed in. Don, the owner, was great to work with. So accommodating. This was our spring break trip and after a 10 hr drive the penthouse was "the place" to arrive to! The unit was so clean and all the furnishings were spot on. The kitchen had everything we needed. Love, Love, Love staying here. We will definitely be back. Thanks Don!

PH4, ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.
THIS PENTHOUSE WAS SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL, WITH THE PERFECT VIEW OF THE OCEAN. MY FAMILY ENJOYED SITTING OUT ON THE BALCONY AND MY GRANDKIDS JUST HAD THE BEST TIME WATCHING THE PLANES FLY OVER THE CONDO. DON, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING ALL THE QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS THAT I HAD, YOU WERE GREAT. MY FAMILY AND I ARE ALREADY MAKING PLANS FOR NEXT YEAR. THIS WAS THE PERFECT VACATION. THE RESTAURANTS AND OUTLET MALL, AWSOME.

Awesome Family Vacation
Awesome Family Vacation
We recently returned from a week's stay at this beautiful condo the end of May 2012. The condo was even better than it looked in pictures. The view was amazing and there was plenty of space for my husband and I and our 4 children. Don was super helpful with information on the best places to eat to which was the preferred Urgent care/ER. He has a binder full of information in the unit and we LOVED eating at Another Broken Egg! The zero depth entry pool was perfect for my two 1 year olds and I loved how it got deeper so the older kids (10 & 6) were in the same pool as the little ones. My older kids also participated in fun games and activities that Sterling Shores had for entertainment. Another thing we loved was the reserved covered parking space for our unit. Our vehicle was never hot and it was a breeze getting the kids and our things in and out of the car. This was a huge perk I hadn't considered. We LOVED our stay and are already planning to come back and stay here again next year. Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us!

Better than the Pictures
Better than the Pictures
I want to start by saying that Don was so personable and informative. He answered any questions that I had, seeing as this was our first time renting a condo directly from an owner. The pictures on this page do not do his condo any justice. The place was gorgeous and the views were breathtaking. Sometimes I worry about the pictures being better than what it actually is, but that wasn't the case. It was like waking up to a picture perfect day, every day. The condo was clean, it had everything we needed to cook, better washer and dryer than I have in my own house and comfortable furniture and beds. We had 3 adult couples and we always had our own space if we wanted it, or plenty of room to eat dinner together or watch a little bit a TV on a night in. The location was perfect. We drove around Destin a lot becasue it was our first time there, and everything that we wanted to do was right by Sterling Shores. Some people worry about the street to cross to the beach, but there is hardly any traffic and you don't lose any beach view at all. It was actually nice because we sat on the balcony many nights and were able to people watch and see other places, instead of the dark abiss. We were able to hear waves crashing at night which is really calming. I really can't say enough about Don's penthouse. When we return to Destin, we will definitely be booking this condo again. It's hard to downgrade after staying in PH4. Don set our standards high for Destin condos, or any condo for that matter. From booking to check out, the trip was magnificent and Don and his condo helped to make it that way. If I could leave my email for anyone to ask me questions I would because Don and his condo deserve rave reviews, but there is a little clause up here that says I can't. All I can say is that you get WAY more than you pay for with PH4. You will not regret staying here... you will regret missing an opportunity to enjoy such a perfect stay if you pass this place up.

We stay at Sterling Shores every summer and have stayed in several condos, but we haven't found one that we'd want to use a second year in a row...until now! This condo was absolutely perfect for our family. It was decorated nicely but still felt like home. All the beds were comfortable, and all the necessary supplies were included. Mr. Don even added nice touches like a binder with all kinds of information about Destin and beach toys for the kids. Our family plans to stay here every year for our vacation. Thanks!

Have been spending spring break in Destin for five years. The last two have been in this condo. Can't say enough good things about the condo, location, or owner. Our teenage children also love the accomodations. The Condo is very spacious and the view is fantastic. Having the owner (Don) nearby is very comforting. The location is great for both adults and teenagers. Thanks for everything Don. Looking forward to seeing you again next spring break...if not sooner!

Wonderful unit. We have stayed in this unit in 2009 and 2010. It is really nice that the owner (Don) lives nearby to answer any questions or resolve any issue with the unit. We are looking forward to 2011. Thanks again Don.

Fabulous condo! and great owner assistance with answering our initial questions when making reservations. Our family had the most wonderful vacation last summer (2007) which was only enhanced by our stay in your wonderful accomodations. We liked it so much, we tried to book it again this year, but were too late! Maybe in 2009?! Thank you!
