Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We've been traveling to Destin for years and stayed at many places. This was the best by far. The property has a true resort feel with manicured grounds and spacious pool areas. The condo was very clean and pleasantly decorated. The location was easy to access from the very busy highway 98. The owner was accommodating and quick to respond. We'll be back!

Why go anywhere else???

A great vacation is only made possible by a great location and for your vacation in Destin this Sterling Shores condo has that and much more! It is centrally located to any attraction your heart desires - whether it be the great restaurants, shopping, HarborWalk Village, deep sea fishing. etc or most importantly, the great white sands of the Gulf! We enjoyed 10 days just relaxing - sometimes at the private beach, other times at the beautiful pools, and every morning from the balcony - and what a great view from the 9th floor! The unit has - what else?? - a beach theme that is so refreshing! The staff are readily available if need be, and no worries about parking as it is secure. We definitely will return and we have also recommended to other family members! A truly positive experience!!

Great location, beautiful view, and very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here for our 30th Anniversary. The view of the beach was amazing! We enjoyed drinking our coffee on the balcony in the mornings watching the boats on the horizon. We even saw some dolphins one morning! It's a great location right in the heart of Destin. It provided easy access to dining, shopping and other activities. The condo itself is very nicely decorated with a great beach theme adding to the atmosphere. We had a great time and cannot wait to return!

Excellent location, great unit, and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed here for a week for vacation and had a blast. The location was excellent, the property is located in the heart of Destin and everything was very accessible and easy to get to. The property itself was beautiful! It was located right on the beach which allowed us to walk there everyday and the two pools were great for a break from the sand and waves. The unit itself was amazing, it was very spacious, beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed to make us feel comfortable and at home. The unit was located on the 9th floor and had a beautiful view of the ocean, I would sit outside every evening and watch the sun set from the balcony. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely rent from this owner again!
