The Sterling Shores Resort complex offers the ultimate in a beach vacation. Located in the heart of Destin, the private gated gulf-front beach resort amenities include two pools, one on the beach next to a beachside Cabana Grill and a 4300 sq. ft. heated lagoon-style pool with 9000 sq. ft. of sundeck equipped with lounge chairs and barbecue grills all surrounded with lush tropical landscaping.

There is a 42-seat indoor surround sound theater on the property featuring first run movies (seasonal), as well as on-site free video rental that you can view in your private condominium. The living area has a flat screen TV with HD channels available and also a DVD player. If golf is your pleasure, there are numerous top rated courses close by. There are also many restaurants and plenty of shopping close by.

Our Sterling Shores 'Captiva' unit is a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath beach retreat ideally located in the center of the building on the 9th floor. The views are incredible from the unit, perfect for dolphin watching. The unit is professionally decorated with a Floridian theme. The living area is completely tiled with warm toned colors. The carpeted bedrooms are furnished with custom made comforters and draperies to ensure our guests a restful sleep.

In the master bathroom our guests will find an oversized jacuzzi bath tub. Thick plush white towels are provided along with a 'Gilchrist & Soames' amenity kit. Both bedrooms are equipped with Flat screen TVs (DVD player in master) and the living room offers a queen size sleeper sofa. The newly remodeled kitchen is well stocked with beautiful coordinated glassware, plates, and cooking essentials. This is our "home away from home" and we would like to share the experience of relaxing beachfront living with you.

Why go anywhere else???

A great vacation is only made possible by a great location and for your vacation in Destin this Sterling Shores condo has that and much more! It is centrally located to any attraction your heart desires - whether it be the great restaurants, shopping, HarborWalk Village, deep sea fishing. etc or most importantly, the great white sands of the Gulf! We enjoyed 10 days just relaxing - sometimes at the private beach, other times at the beautiful pools, and every morning from the balcony - and what a great view from the 9th floor! The unit has - what else?? - a beach theme that is so refreshing! The staff are readily available if need be, and no worries about parking as it is secure. We definitely will return and we have also recommended to other family members! A truly positive experience!!

Great location, beautiful view, and very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here for our 30th Anniversary. The view of the beach was amazing! We enjoyed drinking our coffee on the balcony in the mornings watching the boats on the horizon. We even saw some dolphins one morning! It's a great location right in the heart of Destin. It provided easy access to dining, shopping and other activities. The condo itself is very nicely decorated with a great beach theme adding to the atmosphere. We had a great time and cannot wait to return!

Excellent location, great unit, and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed here for a week for vacation and had a blast. The location was excellent, the property is located in the heart of Destin and everything was very accessible and easy to get to. The property itself was beautiful! It was located right on the beach which allowed us to walk there everyday and the two pools were great for a break from the sand and waves. The unit itself was amazing, it was very spacious, beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed to make us feel comfortable and at home. The unit was located on the 9th floor and had a beautiful view of the ocean, I would sit outside every evening and watch the sun set from the balcony. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely rent from this owner again!
