Sterling Shores condo description
Thank you for visiting the site of the 'Sea Forever' condo: Penthouse 12 at Sterling Shores in Destin, Florida!
New discounted rates for end of summer through October! $1750 per week (INCLUDES all taxes and fees!)
If you have been to Destin, Florida, you know how much of a GEM this location is! And, if you have never been there before, you are in for a treat! The turquoise blue waters and white sand beaches are unsurpassed in beauty and you would think you are in the Caribbean! There are seriously no better beaches in the US. The white sand remains cool under your feet as you stroll in comfort -- even in the heat of the day! The turquoise water is breathtaking and you can even watch the dolphins from your balcony or directly from the beach!
And, what better place to stay than at Sterling Shores. This property boasts two wonderful pools, including a seasonally heated 4300 square foot lagoon pool with waterfall umbrella that the kids will love. The other pool is located on the Gulf with a terrific hamburger hut that sells delicious food and smoothies. The pool is great for the kids as well as the adults. In addition to the pools, there is also a workout room and a 42 seat theater that your family can use for MOVIE NIGHT! Popcorn included! Great fun.
Sterling Shores is located right next to some great Restaurants including everyone's favorite: The Back Porch Seafood and Oyster Bar.) Ruth's Chris Steak House is also close by. A BRAND NEW addition to the area is the countries largest candy store! The Candymaker Candy Store is right next to Sterling Shores and includes a coffee shop, a yogurt shop, a gift shop, and some of the best candy you've ever eaten! We love going there for breakfast! The Track Amusement Center is also right across the road, which includes mini-golf, go-carts on a wooden track, bumper cars, an arcade, as well as bungee jumping! You are also close to shopping at the Destin Commons, and grocery stores, including Walmart, are very close by.
We LOVE our unit and Sterling Shores, which looks directly over this beautiful beach, and we know that you will, too! This unit has the best location in the complex - it sits out from the rest of the building and is centrally located. You cannot beat the view from this unit! The ceiling of the unit is vaulted, including the balcony that above the balcony (see photos) -- providing a limitless view. No one is above you, creating a sense of openness. With your rental you receive use of our COVERED GARAGE PARKING SPACE for no extra charge, making your car easily accessible and out of the elements.
Once you've finished enjoying a day at the beach or one of our TWO POOLS, kick back in our comfy sofas and watch your videos or DVD's (DVD movie rentals available at Sterling Shores) on the large 46-inch flat screen TV. Each bedroom also has a TV with a DVD and VHS. There is also an in-house movie theater (where you can use your own movies!) and seasonal children's programs.
The extra large kitchen gives you plenty of room to move around. Then, enjoy watching the sunset with after dinner drinks from the oversized balcony!
Please check out our Guest Comments! Here are the comments from a recent guest:
'Thanks again to you and your husband for all of your help. You can quote on this. Your condo not only had all the comforts of home, it was very elegant and modern. The view was breathtaking and by far the best that we have ever witnessed in Destin. Our plans in the future will now always include your penthouse. Not only was it the best, your help and guidance made everything top notch!'

This condo is very elegantly decorated with top of the line furniture and accessories. The location is superb, the beach is close (even closer than pictures appear), the pool is fabulous. I have been to Destin MANY times and this is by far the best place I have ever stayed. We plan on returning next year!

One of the best places in Florida!!!!
One of the best places in Florida!!!!
I stayed at this condo with my sister, her boyfriend and my 5 year old son. We go to Fl a lot so I've seen a lot of different condos, townhouses,etc (sometimes we stay in Fl for over a month). This place had become one of our favorite future destinations! The owner put a lot of effort to make this condo look nice, clean and cozy. I am very picky person when it comes to cleanness, but this time everything was perfect! We are definitely coming back! And thank you, Ms. Goforth for replying on our calls quickly and agreeing to accommodate us with our requests.

Our family has stayed at Sterling Shores multiple times given its' many advantages compared to other properties in Destin, i.e., largest pool in Destin, a 2nd pool located at the beach, convenient location to stores and leading attractions, gorgeous view of ocean, etc. Every unit we have stayed at has always been clean and modern. I don't understand why so many people lower their standards and will stay at properties that are not as nice as their primary residencies. We have rented units thru Sterling Shores and directly through owners. Our stay at the Sea Forever unit was reserved through the delightful owners of John and Tammy. All pictures and details of the unit were factual and Tammy was very responsive to my questions regarding the property. Their unit is located on the Penthouse level and the view is breathtaking. We accidently ran into 2 different friends of ours and when they visited us in our unit, they were envious of our accomodations. I don't often respond to surveys but given our positive experience I wanted potential future guests to have the same experience as us.

Very nice condo. We had no problems checking in and everything went great from the start. The view is incredible. It was very spacious, which my large family needed. The staff at Sterling Shores were great too. The pool area is one of the nicest that I have seen in Destin. Very close to the beach. Couldn't have asked for anything better. I would stay there again and would recommonded any other family to stay too.

Our family spend our vacation time in Destin every year and we always stay in Sterling Shores. Every room we have stayed in was very nice, including this one. What sets this one apart is the owners, their communication and follow up is excellent. Would strongly recommend this one to everyone.

We had a fabulous time in Destin and found our accommodations at Sterling Shores "Sea Forever" condo to exceed our expectations! The Goforth's are very organized with information and explanation about what we could expect from our experience there. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the unit is gorgeous! Very spacious, well stocked kitchen, more than enough room for 4 adults and 1 child. The location is excellent. Very close proximity to restaurants, coffee and breakfast shop and of course the beautiful beach. There are two pools, gated very secure property with officers on property around the clock. There are children's activities planned on the property....sometimes 2-3 activities a day for your children to enjoy! We hope to book every year and we found this experience to be the best we have ever had! I would highly recommend "Sea Forever" at Sterling Shores.

Our family visited Destin during Spring Break and stayed in this condo. The layout was spacious, nicely decorated, and very clean! Nice view of the beach from the balcony. Walking distance from the beach! Our kids loved the large candy store near the condo, too. The owners were great to work with....very responsive. I would definitely rent here again. Wonderful experience!

Perfect Condo in Destin!
Perfect Condo in Destin!
My group had a wonderful time in Destin, and it was so nice being able to come back to a condo that had everything we needed! I was happy that the pots/pans were nice enough to actually be able to cook with and not burn our food. Also, there was plenty of closet space for all of your belongings, and the condo decorations were top-notch. The picture makes the beach look farther than it really is; just a short walk through the pool area and your there! We would definitely consider coming back in the future! You won't be disappointed with your choice to stay here.

Great Place To Spend Vacation!
Great Place To Spend Vacation!
Destin is a wonderful place to spend vacation. We traveled a long 12 hours in hopes of finding something wonderful. We were not let down as Destin has many things to offer families and individuals. The different shades of blue water along with the white sand is an amazing sight. Destin has many things to do from relaxing on the beaches, parasailing, kayaking, jet ski, fishing (which is great), wonderful restaurants, shops, attractions, golf, and much more. Destin is one of those places that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime! The condo at Sterling Shores was very conveniently located in the heart of Destin. It was everything that we expected and found everything just as the pictures and description advertised. The owners are very helpful and quick to help you out with any questions or problems. Thanks for making our family vacation to Destin one that will be remembered for years to come. We hope that we will be able to visit Destin one day again soon!

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Hi! Thank you for visiting our VRBO page! We bought this unit in 2005 and love the area, the view, and the location in the building. We looked at many units before we found this one, and are we glad we did. It has the perfect location in the building -- hands down -- right smack dab in the middle. The view is unbelievable. When you walk in the unit and look out the huge tall glass doors you will know exactly what we mean. We love the spaciousness of this unit, and the grandness you feel when you walk in due to the high ceilings. It is bright and yet warm, and being on the top floor you do not have neighbors to worry about making noise from above. The balcony is extremely spacious and safe for small children. We come here as often as we can, and take great care of our unit. We hope you will choose to enjoy it as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose Sterling Shores:
We immediately loved Sterling Shores because of it's general beauty. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with loads of palm trees (we love palm trees) and they keep it immaculate. Besides the beauty, we love that everything is so close. We are VERY close to grocery stores, Walmart, and the Destin Commons shopping mall. The pools in this complex are GREAT! the Lagoon pool is extra large and has a more shallow area for smaller children. There is plenty of space in the pool, and also around it for sun bathing. Within this pool area there is also a grill, so you can cook up your steaks and eat them poolside or take them back up to the unit and eat on the balcony! The beachside pool is smaller, but is right next to the hamburger bar/tiki hut. A great place to 'regroup' after being on the beach for a few hours! We LOVE the hamburger bar and it serves the BEST hamburgers, as well as hot dogs, smoothies, nachos, ice cream, etc. You can order directly from the beach side, or from the private patio/pool area. The Back Porch restaurant is right next to our beach, and you can order drinks directly from the backside bar, or take a lunch break and go in with your bathing suit. Extra fun! Sterling Shores also has a movie theater than guest can rent and they provide popcorn and take care of all putting it all together for you and your guests. A great way for families to enjoy and evening at the movies! We love doing that. During the summer, there are daily activities for the kids. When we first bought the unit, our son was younger and really enjoyed many of these activities! There is also a very nice workout room available to guests.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The newest addition to this area is the Candymaker candy store! This is so much fun for all ages! We were so excited that there is a coffee shop right in the candy store, and you can enjoy your coffee on the outside deck or inside in the booths. The candy shop is huge, and also offers frozen yogurt, gifts, and excellent toffee and pralines (amongst so many other nummies!) We also love that the TRACK amusement center is right across the road, with miniature golf, arcade, bungies, bumper cars, and a wooden race track which is a lot of fun. As a guest of Sterling Shores, you can call ahead to the Back Porch restaurant, which is located right across the road, and make reservations...just let them know that you are staying at Sterling Shores. You can also receive priority tee-times at the Plantation Golf Club as a guest from Sterling Shores. And,very importantly, there is very EASY access across busy Hwy 98, due to a designated traffic light -- which most complexes do not offer. There are so many wonderful reasons to stay at Sterling Shores Penthouse 12!
