About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)


Sterling Sands resort is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico in the heart of Destin within walking distance of shopping, water parks and a variety of the area's best restaurants. This 2 bedroom 2 bath has a private balcony and panoramic view of the shimmering waters and sugar-white sand of the Emerald Coast. The 4th floor is high enough for a great view but low enough to still use the stairs when you want.

During your stay, enjoy taking a dip in the free-form pool (heated seasonally) or relax in the hot tub. The lush strip of gulf-side lawn featuring a covered picnic and grilling area. Covered parking garage with THE BEST parking spot in the building, directly in front of the elevator for easy access to the beach and your room. Sterling Sands guests enjoy FREE Wi-Fi and unlimited DVD rentals.

Rates include cleaning fees, on-site DVD rentals, laundry fees and a prime covered parking spot. Rates do not include 16.3% tax and reservation fee, and $40 limited liability waiver.

About The Owner

We bought the unit in October 2009 and upgraded the unit to Platinum rating in March 2010. We love the outstanding views from this unit and the size is perfect for our family. We have two kids (ages 11 and 7) and they love the new bunkbeds and the white Destin sand.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Florida North West

We love the crystal, white sand beaches of Destin and the blue water. Our families have been traveling to Destin for years vacationing together. Destin has LOTS of things to do... shopping, fishing, great restaurants, activities, etc.. It is a VERY family oriented vacation destination.

What makes this condo unique

We can move from our condo door to the sand in less than 2 minutes which makes it easy with the kids. The condo sleeps 7 and that means you can bring along friends or the Grandparents! Our private parking spot is 4 feet from the elevator which makes it truly the best parking spot in the building.

Best Condo

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this condo with 5 kids and it was incredible. We visit the beach every year and the service we received from this owner and the on-site management group has been the absolute best. The unit was very well maintained and incredibly chic. I slept on the bottom bunk with 2 of my children and was surprised at how comfortable it was!! The owners keep the unit well stocked with all you need for the week. The blender was broken, but 5 minutes after I called the front desk, a brand new one was delivered by housekeeping. Yes, you do have to go down the elevator and walk to through the pool area and across the boardwalk to the beach, but the area is so well maintained, and our car parked in the provided parking spot, that we just dropped off our beach toys at the car and proceeded up stairs, with 5 kids, it really didn't seem to be that big of a deal. The beach attendants were very helpful and very kind. The even drilled a hole for out umbrella every day. The on-site staff were always so kind to my kids and were always working to maintain the property. We highly recommend this unit and this condominium. It really was icing on the cake for a week at the beach!!!

We loved Destin and everything about the condo, pool, closeness to the beach, etc!! Everyone including the staff at Sterling Sands was so nice. We were not disappointed at all with anything and would recommend this condo. Plenty of activities, shopping and dining for the whole family. It was so relaxing and the weather was wonderful. When we were not on the beach then we spent most of the time on the balcony just enjoying the scenery and sounds of the ocean/beach. Destin has one of the cleanest beaches - beautiful white sand and no trash!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your condo! The kitchen is perfect, it had everything we needed. The condo is located in the middle of the building, which makes for a great view of the pool and an easy trip from the elevator. The parking spot really was the best in the building, definitely a plus! Free wi-fi was also a plus.

Smoke alarm battery went off our first day, but maintenance came to the rescue within 20 minutes.

Our only regret is that we forgot to sign the guestbook!
