It is a reno done right from new custom cherry wood cabinetry and granite countertops, new furniture, new appliances new LED TVs, new flooring, new AC, new paint, light and hardware, doors to even installing new doorhinges to new dishes and changing to a smooth ceiling from a prior popcorn style. All done to make your stay feel special. With comfortable sleeping arrangements for 8, this unit offers breathtaking views and an unbeatable proximity to a private paradise. Beach service is included from March 1- October31st.

Sterling Sands is an 80 unit newly upgraded beach front retreat located directly on the Gulf of Mexico in the heart of Destin. This platinum plus rated fifth floorcondo unit sets a new standard for the building. It is 50% bigger than some of the other 'Two' bedroom condos in the building. You can relax and enjoy the panoramic view of the 380 foot stretch of beach from the spacious balcony. With only 80 units there is always easy access to and from the spacious beach front. Feel your stress and tension melt away into the cool calm water, or be kissed by the sun while laying on the pristine soft sands. Mix it up with a stop in the newly upgraded pool and heated whirlpool.

The newly remodeled modern gourmet kitchen has warm cherry wood cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. There is beautiful high end upscale wood grained tile flowing throughout the home. The unit has a full size washer and dryer. New wall mounted LED TVs are installed in all bedrooms and living room, and blue-ray DVD players accompanying all TVs. Newly upgraded free WiFi service is available to make your stay more comfortable. This platinum plus unit features a luxurious fully tiled rain shower and a separate jetted jacuzzi. There are beautifully upgraded cabinetry and fixtures with quartz countertops in the bathrooms. The master suite offers a stunning view of the Gulf with direct access to the balcony and a walk-in closet.

There is new high end furniture in all rooms of the home. The unit houses a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen bed and twin bunks beds in the second bedroom, and a queen bed sofa sleeper in the living room with comfortable mattresses and pillows.

Sterling Sands is near attractions, shopping, fine restaurants, and right on the sugar white sands of Destin Beach, the perfect place to see dolphins frolic.
You are just a short 10 minute beach walk to the restaurant Back Porch, save room for the Candy Shop. Directly across the street you can find Pizza, Subs, large beverage store, and ice cream/yogurt. If you forget your toys or beach wear a large beach store is right across the street. Short walk and you are at 'The Track' a young & young at heart entertainment park. As you know good food , golf ,fishing, jet skis/boat rentals for gulf or bay and shopping abound in Destin.

Destin Commons is a 10 minute drive to the east with great shopping, and the Rave Theater with a great Bass Pro store. For food or your other needs there is a Walmart or Fresh Market and many other specialty stores within proximity. Be sure to take a drive along old 98 east and see the beaches.

Silver Sands, a large factory outlet mall, is located within a few miles. In addition, the brand new Destin Commons outdoor shopping mall is at the corner of the Mid Bay Bridge and Highway 98. Destin Commons has a huge movie theater complex, Hard Rock Cafe, Bass Pro Fishing shop, Johnnie Rockets, and all the mall shops you have come to know and love in a beautiful outdoor setting (don’t forget your sun block!).

Before Destin was a vacation and tourist spot, it was a fishing town. If you are interested in doing some fishing while in Destin, Fort Walton Beach has just built a new fishing pier, and deep sea fishing is right up the street!

If you like road trips, take a drive down 30-A to Seaside, Rosemary Beach, and see everything in between for some spectacular sightseeing. Also located eight miles east on the bay side of the Sandestin Resort is the newly erected Baytowne Wharf area. Here you will find more shopping and great restaurants overlooking the Choctowatchee Bay. For the kids, Baytowne Wharf offers bungee jumping, dune buggies, go carts, and a water park right across the street, or drive a couple miles east on Highway 98 and you’ll find a great amusement park. If you want to feel like you have really gotten your money's worth, and have never been to Destin, now is the time to go. No matter how long you stay, it is never enough.

The Emerald Coast was recently picked as the #1 Beach in America by USA Today readers and selected for the 12th year in a row as the “Best Beach in the South” and “Top Family Destination” by Southern Living readers!

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About: I and my wife love traveling and have traveled the world. We have been married for 19 years with two kids. We stayed at many world class resorts and have loved the way Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton do business. We wanted our guests to experience the same quality and feel special and forget everyday worries. We wanted to make the condo like we could live in.

          Why Sterling Sands:
          It is in the heart of Destin with convenient beach access and close to restaurants. Covered parking and close to elevator was a plus.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          It's central location in Destin gives you easy access to food, shopping, entertainment and fun within minutes.
