Hey, everyone! Thanks for visiting the site of the 'Sea Forever' condo: Penthouse 12 at Sterling Shores in Destin, Florida!
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!
We LOVE our unit and Sterling Shores, which looks directly over this beautiful beach. And we know that you will, too! Please check out its coolness:

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!

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!

We will be repeat customers of the ‘Sea Forever’
Our family loves the Destin area and staying at the ‘Sea Forever’ property made the vacation even more memorable. The condo itself was very efficient for our family which included 4 adults and 2 young kids. The kids loved the bunk beds. The condo was extremely spacious with a wonderful view of the ocean and pool. The property is very well maintained along with the Sterling Shores resort. Every day they had something for the kids to with games at the pool, kickball, shaving cream games, etc. The vacation was fantastic and the stay at the ‘Sea Forever’ is as good as it gets. We will be repeat customers of the ‘Sea Forever’ condo!

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!
