  • Master Bedroom is quiet and secluded from the rest of the apartment--great for naps. The second bedroom has bunk beds that are huge--seriously. They look cute but I slept in one of them and had plenty of room. Take your pick on whether you like to sleep 'up' or 'down'. Lots of fun. Don't miss a night on the pull-out sofa. That is my usual place to sleep and love to hear the ocean and watch the glow of the moon-lit pool change colors from blues to greens. If you leave the living room custom curtains open, you'll catch the sunrise--and won't forget it....moreless

  • I am including the costs of the beach chair and umbrella service each day you are there between March 1 and Oct. 31. The apartment is so comfortable and the view so breathtaking, it is always very difficult to head home. Once you try it, I'm sure you'll return season after season. I welcome feedback and strive to keep the place pristine, comfortable and everything you'd want in your beach trip. If you need daily cleaning I can put you in direct contact with my cleaning crew to arrange for guest-expense daily cleaning or assistance. I also have signed up for on-site maintenance--like light bulbs or other appliance-assistance you may need. Just call Ron--his number is on my welcome page that I'll send you just before your arrival....moreless

380 feet of private beach for this condo

Car: Not Necessary

I've vacationed at hundreds of places but there is no place like Destin for the kids -- of all ages. They can't wait to get to Destin--always a favorite with them. Me? I'll just sit on the beach or the lanai and watch the dolphins...golfing is an option or the waterpark, go-carts or ice cream parlor. The white sands of the 380 feet of private beach, flanked by turquoise waters, is an image I won't soon forget.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I'm the ultimate beach lover. Anything 'beach' as long as I'm facing directly to the ocean or Gulf and I can hear the surf. I like fun activities nearby too and fabulous restaurants and pubs. I'm a native New Yorker living in Kentucky for the last 24 years, but you can bet I'm visiting one of my beach places...Destin, Naples, Montauk or Isle of Palms...as often as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Destin, FL, USA:
Destin offers more than just the beach. It's easy to fly into or drive to, and has everything I need either a short walk or drive away, including the incredibly unique Harborwalk Village. Where else can you get world-class fishing, restaurants, shopping, golfing and powder-white sand steps away? You can catch the sunrise AND sunset from my private lanai.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When I walked into this Sterling Sands condo with the surf dazzling turquoise I knew I'd found the ultimate beach get-away. The new kitchen and baths cinched it for me and the kids couldn't wait to sleep in the bunk beds made up just for them. There is also an exercise room, a meeting room with a kitchen for parties, outdoor grilling area, beautiful grounds and on-site maintenance should you need it.
