About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

New patio furniture, mattresses, bedding.

Home away from home! This beautiful Condominium has everything you need. There is a King-size bed with soft sheets, deep jetted garden tub in the master, complete with a TV/VCR and DVD, a queen in the guest bedroom, also with a TV/DVD, and the new sofa opens to a Queen. The living room has a TV, VCR and DVD player, 100+ DVDs, and lots of games underneath! Beach chairs, umbrella, pool noodles, sandcastle stuff, boogie boards, and more. Bring your beach towels and nothing more to enjoy beautiful beach and pool (okay-bathing suit of course.)

If you are looking for the ultimate beach vacation place, look no more. Sterling ranked as one of Destin's Top-Rated Resorts, you will find all of the comforts of home and then some. This beautiful condo is located (walking distance to the back porch restaurant) at Sterling Shores and is right in the center of all the activities in Destin - within 5 miles of the following: Destin Commons, Big Kahuna Water Park, The Track - with go carts (three tracks), bumper boats and cars, bungee jumping, putt putt golf, A J's, WalMart, Target, grocery stores, tons of restaurants, etc. Right in the heart of Destin!

Enjoy the 4300-square-foot, zero-entry, lagoon-style pool and mushroom fountain - the kids will LOVE it. There is a beach side grill that has the best burgers I have ever tasted, cool smoothies, ice cream, and more. For a more grown up atmosphere, enjoy the heated beachside pool - walk right next door to The Back Porch restaurant for 'adult beverages' and food right on the beach!

We have decorated this unit with new high-quality furnishings, not 'rental stuff.' After a long day at the beach, enjoy a 'HOT' bath in the Jacuzzi tub, then sit on the balcony and listen to the waves crash in. I have a daughter and she LOVES LOVES LOVES this place! You will too!

Enjoy beautiful Destin!

About Leesa Gillen, owner since 2008

We had these photos taken by a photographer in Destin.

Leesa Gillen, owner since 2008 purchased this condo in 2003

Why Leesa Gillen, owner since 2008 chose Destin

I would travel to Destin every year with friends and I started looking for a place for my little girl and I to have our family vacations and Destin was an obvious place to buy. I am a single mom and must rent this property to afford it.

What makes this condo unique

My little girl loves this place! It is very family oriented we love the beachside grill and the playground at the Back Porch. We have made this place just as we would have our home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the BEST time at your place in Destin. It was beautifully decorated, had lots of games, beach and pool toys too. The owner was great. I LOVE the location - it was perfect! We were so close to the beach and with the Back Porch right there too, it was very convenient to eat without having to pack up and go out. Will come back again and again. St. Louis

Beautiful property with great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Sterling Shores. The location was awesome as it was very close to great restaurants and outdoor activities (go carts, putt putt golf, water park, etc.) Although the decor was amazing, one of the bedrooms was rather small and the master bedroom was rather "tight." It did sleep six, but not comfortably. Four people would be better and much more comfortable. Other than that, we absolutely LOVED our stay!!

So nice to have the stuff for the beach at the condo!! 4 chairs, boogie boards, cooler, sand toys, net, pool noodles, umbrella.

Pull out couch was very comfortable as well as other beds. Very easy to get to-right off elevator. Everyone friendly. Nice family area.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time taking our 3 year old grand daughter on vacation. We had booked another condo but at the last minute we decided we wanted to be closer to the beach. I found this condo and immediately got in contact with the owner via VRBO. Booking the condo was easy and smooth. When we arrived the condo was clean and nicely decorated. My grand daughter was excited to see that there were toys for her to take to the beach. We also enjoyed the beach umbrella and chairs! The condo pool was amazing! I can't say enough how much this trip meant to me. Thank you Leesa!
