                      Destin is known as the “Luckiest Fishing Village” because of its easy access harbor to deep gulf water. If you haven’t been to Destin you will be amazed at how beautiful the beaches are. Destin has some great attractions that are fun destinations after a day at the beach.

                      The Harbor Walk area is just east of Okaloosa Island near the harbor bridge and is a great place to visit. You can walk along the docks to see what the fisherman bring in for the days catch. You will find dining, cocktails, retail shops, live music, and a great atmosphere.

                      The Village of Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin is about 15 miles east on Hwy 98. Baytowne is a great place to walk around and offers retail shops, dinning, bars, and live music.

                      Silver Sands Outlet Mall is 10 miles east on Hwy 98 and has over 110 outlet stores offering factory direct savings.

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About: Hello, my name is Steve. I’m the owner of Sterling Sands #409. I enjoyed a great career as police officer in Michgan for many years before I relocated to Alabama in 2011. I purchased the condo in 2002 after I saw the beautiful white sandy beach and incredible palm landscaping at Sterling Sands. Destin is a great vacation get-a-way and I’m very grateful for all the wonderful memories I have with family and friends at the beach. I spend a great deal of time and money each year making sure that the condo is in top condition. My family and friends truly enjoy our time in Destin and I'm confident that you will not be disappointed when you stay at Sterling Sands #409.

                      Why Sterling Sands:
                      I first visited Destin in 2002 after a friend told me about how nice the beaches are. I fell in love with the area because the sand and beach remind me of the the north shore of lake Michigan in late summer. I enjoy the emerald gulf water, white sand beach, and the Destin relaxed way of life. I work hard to keep the condo updated so that my guests will relax and enjoy their vacation at the beach.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The Gulf is known for fresh sea food so I always make sure to take in all I can while I'm in Destin. Harbor Docks is always good for a nice dinner or the Back Porch for a sandwich and tuna dip. Baytowne Wharf is a great place to hear some music and let the kids have fun.
