Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was super clean and very comfortable! The owner is easily accessible for any questions. It's across the street from the beach (VERY short walk) and there are 2 pools- one on-site and one on the beach. The beach pool has food and drink service. The waitress serves the sand-beach area (for sterling shores occupants) as well. The Back Porch was our convenient go-to for happy hours and dinners, and the kids loved the candy store next door. For reference, our family is 2 adults and our 14 and 11 year old boys.

Perfect place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Hope's condo at Sterling Shores was perfect for our vacation to Destin this year. The condo is clean and has everything you need to make yourself right at home. The kitchen and bathrooms have a lot of the amenities needed, so be sure to check before you go to the store to get coffee, filters, spices, etc. There are two beach chairs so you do not have to rent them at the beach, a couple of beach towels and pool noodles. The pools and beach are fabulous and it is centrally located near restaurants, stores and everything you could possibly need to have a great vacation. Hope is great to work with. We will definitely be back again!
