Hello, my name is Steve. I’m the owner of Sterling Sands #409. I enjoyed a great career as police officer in Michgan for many years before I relocated to Alabama in 2011. I purchased the condo in 2002 after I saw the beautiful white sandy beach and incredible palm landscaping at Sterling Sands. Destin is a great vacation get-a-way and I’m very grateful for all the wonderful memories I have with family and friends at the beach. I spend a great deal of time and money each year making sure that the condo is in top condition. My family and friends truly enjoy our time in Destin and I'm confident that you will not be disappointed when you stay at Sterling Sands #409.
Steve purchased this condo in 2002
I first visited Destin in 2002 after a friend told me about how nice the beaches are. I fell in love with the area because the sand and beach remind me of the the north shore of lake Michigan in late summer. I enjoy the emerald gulf water, white sand beach, and the Destin relaxed way of life. I work hard to keep the condo updated so that my guests will relax and enjoy their vacation at the beach.
The Gulf is known for fresh sea food so I always make sure to take in all I can while I'm in Destin. Harbor Docks is always good for a nice dinner or the Back Porch for a sandwich and tuna dip. Baytowne Wharf is a great place to hear some music and let the kids have fun.
Steve's condo is set in the center of the entire building. Perfect balcony views of the beach and ocean. Clean, fresh, and comfortable. No worries for a great vacation away from home. I've been to Sterling Sands many times over that past ten years and this is among the best! Good restaurants in Destin proper and the surrounding areas (Santa Rosa beach, Ft. Walton, etc.). Adjacent to many stores and amusements for the children.
You will not be sorry if you choose this Condo to stay in during your time in Destin. It was perfect. We can't say anything bad about it. Location is great, it's about as close to the beach as you can get. My husband loved the big tv's. Very nicely decorated. We will definitely stay here again. Oh, and the people there were so friendly!
I highly recommend this property. It was everything as promised and I have stayed many places in Destin and this owner is the best. I have stayed with him 4 times now and will again next trip.
After a brutal winter, it was paradise to relax in Destin. We had wonderful weather, taking many walks along the beautiful beach. The condo was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. Steve allowed us a week of relaxation and rejuvenation. We definitely will be back and hope that Steve and Wendy will join us for some added great times!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Destin. This condo was the best we have stayed at. It was just as described in the listing and more. I cannot say enough about the bed....comfortable and we slept ALL NIGHT (which is difficult for me). The view was spectacular. The beach chairs were included in the rental and the covered parking right at the elevator....A+++. Steve made the booking so easy. We will definitely book this unit next year. Since we visited last year, the whole property has had upgrades....tile on the walkways and paverstones around the pool. Security is always around. You CANNOT go wrong by renting this unit!
Not much I can say that hasn't already been said on the previous reviews, other than they're all true. This condo is beautiful, clean and includes many extra comforts. The views and location are reason enough to stay here. But then add in a covered parking spot that can't be beat. A closet full of beach chairs and equipment. And beach service included. After speaking to several other families also renting condos at Sterling Sands I discovered they did not have those extras. Our family has stayed at Marriott Vacation club resorts the past 4 summers and truly this was as nice a condo as those. Kitchen is loaded with every utensil you'll ever need. 3 wonderful flat screen TV's. Comfy beds and bedding. But the reason we went was for the gorgeous gulf waters and white beach...and they are steps from the condo. Sterling Sands was a super area with very clean grounds, pool and beach. Every single day they cleaned the pool, parking garage, and walk ways. And the location in Destin can't be beat either. Any kind of restaurant or entertainment is within a 2 mile radius.
My only hesitation in writing this review is I know this condo will be even more difficult to rent for a week in the future as the demand will only grow and grow. Thanks Steve!!!
Destin is known as the “Luckiest Fishing Village” because of its easy access harbor to deep gulf water. If you haven’t been to Destin you will be amazed at how beautiful the beaches are. Destin has some great attractions that are fun destinations after a day at the beach.
The Harbor Walk area is just east of Okaloosa Island near the harbor bridge and is a great place to visit. You can walk along the docks to see what the fisherman bring in for the days catch. You will find dining, cocktails, retail shops, live music, and a great atmosphere.
The Village of Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin is about 15 miles east on Hwy 98. Baytowne is a great place to walk around and offers retail shops, dinning, bars, and live music.
