About Sarah Griffith

Our family has 5 children ranging from 42-18. Our condo. is in the perfect location for relaxation for adults and fun everyday for children. Our teenage son and grandchildren love the pool, the nearby Big Kahuna Waterpark, the Goofy Golf and Go Cart Park across the street. The complex is well kept with lovely landscaping and lots of opportunities to relax by the two pools or sit on the beach. We love the conveience of numerous restaurants, as well as one by the beach side pool. Wal-Mart is across the street as well as numerous other shopping areas close by. A huge Silver Sands Outlet Mall is about 4 miles from our condo. There are many namebrand stores with Big Discounts. This condo. is perfect for our family to have a Grand Vacation.

Sarah Griffith purchased this condo in 2005

Why Sarah Griffith chose Destin

We looked for several years for the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful beach and waters of Destin. We chose Sterling Shores Unit 512 because it is Huge. There is enough space for three adult couples and their children to spread out and all have plenty of room. Each bedroom has a King size bed and a separate bath. The kitchen, dining and Great Room with Grand Views of the beach and Emerald Waters.

What makes this condo unique

We love to lounge by the lagoon pool with the Mushroom Fountain where the children and our grandchildren stand and let the water drip on them. We also love to walk out to the beach and plop down on the beach all day where we can either take our lunch and drinks or walk to the Pool Side Snack Bar or The Back Porch Restaurant. Nearby is Big kahuna's Waterpark, The Track Racetrack, the Goofy Golk, Wal-Mart, tons of restaurants and all within walking distance. A pristine state park, Henderson Park, is located right on the beach about 1/4 mile from our beach. We can walk there and spend the day on the beach with over a mile of pristine sand and few visitors. We are located in the heart of Destin. There are many opportunities to shop with Destin Commons just 2 miles away. The outlet mall, Silver Sands is 5 miles away. There are tons of boutiques, places to antique shop like Smith's Antiques, and restaurants like Ruth Chris' door, Bonefish Grill, La Cantina, Olive Garden, Cuvée Beach, marina's Cafe, and tons more.

We had a wonderful time at this property. The pool areas were incredible and spacious, with a spectacular view from the balcony at night and the activities they had daily for children were an exceptional benefit we have not found anywhere else. There was something planned for children daily and several activities at night as well. the walk across the street to the beach was a very short stroll. I have been travelling to this area for 20+ years and have stayed at true beachfront properties that had a longer walk. we loved the convenience of the back porch for food and drinks while at the beach during the day dinner at night and the additional beach pool with bathroom facilities was a true bonus as well. Sarah was very attentive with any of our needs or questions with a quick response and the room was well maintained, beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. We were very happy with our stay at the Griffiths' :)

Just a fantastic property. The amount of space was terrific for a family of six! Unit was well appointed with beautiful artwork and furnishings! This was our 1st time to Destin, but will not be our last. The owner was very responsive to our inquiry and followed up with us after our vacation. I hope we can all visit again sooner than later!

This is our forth time staying at Sterling Shores. The staff there is wonderful. The gentleman on night patrol (didn't even know they had one) was very helpful when our daughter and son in law's battery died in their vehicle. The maintenance staff is also very friendly and prompt. Elevator near us was out of commission but fixed by the next day. Stair door was stuck at the same time and they were fixing it within the hour we notified them. Smoke detecter in condo was beeping when we arrived. Ran into maintenance guy while unloading and battery was replaced within minutes. Thank you so much for the use of your condo for our vacation. Love Destin, Sterling Shores, and this condo. It was perfect for us and most importantly, it was very clean! View is fantastic! Sarah is great to work with and gets back with you very quickly with answers to any questions. Would definitely stay here again!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great, very roomy, nicely furnnished. We had two crawling babies with us and it was perfect for them, with room in the bedroom closets for their pack and plays. The pool is great, the 4 and 7 year olds loved it. Access to the beach was easy. We loved the view from the spacious balcony.
