Property description

For years our family vacationed in Destin. We stayed at many locations along the beach but always seemed to make it back to Sterling Shores. Our extended family decided it was time to purchase a unit at the place we loved - Sterling Shores. We stay in our unit frequently and rent it out when we are not there.

Sterling Shores family friendly condominium complex. Having young children ourselves we appreciate the family amenities in and around the area. During the summer months there are organized activities for children. The main pool is a lagoon style pool that is great for kids of all ages.

Our unit is located on the fifth floor and has a Gulf view. The balcony overlooks the pool area as well as the beautiful landscaped grounds. The non-smoking unit has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms with a garden tub in the master suite.

The complex includes two pools, a pool side grill, dedicated beach area with chair and umbrella service, a onsite theater, and unlimited movie rentals in the lobby.

Restaurants within walking distance are The Back Porch, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, and The Candymaker. The Track is also within walking distance and has mini golf, go karts, bumper rides, and other thrill rides.

The Back Porch is one of Destin's most popular restaurants. There is usually a wait but guests can get beverages at a bar on the front deck.

The Candymaker is exactly what the name implies. They make all types of candy in house; taffy, chocolate dipped anything, specialty chocolate items, frozen yogurt sold by the ounce, a wall of Jelly Bellies, and different types of caramel dipped apples. In addition, it houses a small gift shop and a coffee shop. The coffee shop is open from 7-11am and has a variety of coffee offerings as well as a small breakfast menu. Items can be picked up and enjoyed in the condo unit.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: As a family we visit Sterling Shores several times a year. We enjoy the beach vacations and the memories that we make everytime we stay in Destin.

Why the Owner Chose Destin, FL, USA:
After many vacations to the Destin area and staying at various condo properties, we chose to purchase a unit at our favorite condo complex. Sterling Shores is more than just a room close to a beach. There are amenities that you can't find anywhere else in Destin, trust me we have looked. This property is within walking distance of local restaurants and attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Sterling Shores is located on the east end of scenic highway 98 away from the congestion of the Strip. Easy access to highway 98 lets you drive to all of the popular Destin hangouts. The condo is close to a Wal-Mart and many other stores. It is also within walking distance of several restaurants. There is an on site theater, unlimited DVD rentals, and the lagoon pool is perfect for families with small children. There is also a beach side pool with a cabana where you can purchase food and adult beverages.
