Bev Monaco purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Bev Monaco chose Destin
We 'discoverd' Destin and the Emerald Coast 16 years ago and knew immediately we were retiring here. I spent the first 3 winters at our beach home, listing 24559, while my husband came down every other weekend as he was still working. I can't even describe how much I still cherish all the memories I experienced during those winters. All the times my mother and father came down, our children, our friends... and how many wonderful people we met strolling on the beaches.. We built our retirement home and have continued to live here as we acquired more and more properties. It is just an incredibly wonderful place to visit and to live!!!!
What makes this Condo unique
The views, the views, the views! We lived in the penthouse while our retirement home was being built. Gosh, I just loveddddd it! I can't begin to describe how relaxing and wonderful that experience was. Our penthouse is on the west corner of the building and there are no other comparable views in all of Destin. Just incredibly beautiful views of the ocean and all the city night lights from both of the balconies.. Just gorgeousssss! And, if I may brag about my decorations in the penthouse as well as the unique changes I have made to it, I think it is not comparable to any other unit in Sterling Shores! I converted a closet to a bar area... the only one in the entire building: Crown moldings, tiled floors, upgraded furniture and furnishings all throughout the penthouse; Granite in all the rooms and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen... we spared no expenses in making our penthouse the best place imaginable to stay!

Great stay in a beautiful condo!
Once again, our stay was great even with some rainy days! This condo meets all the needs of our family and the redecorating is beautiful. Thank you to the owners for making this a wonderful home away home for our beach trip!
The penthouse was great! This is the 8th or 9th time we have stayed in the Monaco penthouse 19 and each time things just get better and better!
There were many more updates AGAIN this year. All are in top notch condition. We did not have any problems. Our immediate family get together has grown to over 40 members, each family with their own condo. The penthouse, however, is the envy of all. We are all looking forward to our stay again next year!
The views are the best in town! Large patio to enjoy it on.
Bev is very easy to work with. Thank you Bev.
The best condo in Destin just keeps getting better.
The owners upgrade this premier condo every year. Last year it was appliances. This year it was furniture and paint. Can't wait for next year. I have been vacationing in Destin for over 40 years and PH19 has it all plus the best views - end of subject! Owners are the most responsive I have ever dealt with. Just good people. If you rent this condo I will guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Wow wow wow! Thank you so much for that review Ken. We love having you guys and hope you'll return year after year and we love the condition that you leave the penthouse in thanks so much for your compliments! Bev
Overall, the property was GREAT!
We stayed in this penthouse from May 19th to the 26th 2018. The owner had done a remodel of the condo and it is beautiful as we knew it would be. The condo is really comfortable and provides just about everything you need for your stay. The view from the balcony is second to none and we've stayed in Destin at other places! We had a couple of maintenance issues that we reported to Sterling Shores and within 15 minutes they were knocking on the door! They had the issues cleared up within the day! The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 hasn't anything to do with the beautiful condo but with the beach. I hate the new rules they started on the beach this year. They have ropes separating the different resorts strung from the dunes almost all the way to the water. This was new this year as I was informed when I inquired. We didn't like being in the 4th or 5th row back from the water and sitting on top of the setup next to you. So instead of renting a setup from the guy at Sterling Shores we walked over to the small resort next door. He was very accommodating and set us up with a umbrella and chairs in the second row where we could spread out a bit. Everyone I talked to on the beach didn't like this new way of doing things. I hope the owners at Sterling Shores complain about this new beach rule the next time you get the chance. This really has nothing to do with the beautiful condo however. We spent a couple of days at the pool and we had a wonderful vacation!!
Did not want to come home
Our Favorite Unit in Destin!
We've vacationed to Destin for 15 years and have stayed in various locations (harbor, scenic 98, etc) and in multiple houses and condos. Our favorite, by far, is this Penthouse in Sterling Shores. You can't beat the views. Not only an unobstructed view of the ocean, but a clear view all the way down 98 and of the airport and bay behind the unit. This from the balcony or the HUGE side window within the unit. The unit itself is very spacious and fits our family (2 adults and 3 kids) plus my parents very well. Bev, the owner, is absolutely AMAZING to work with. She treats us so well since we are repeat guests. She always updates the condo and always asks us if there is anything that needs done. New appliances, decor, and furniture. This unit is simply the best and we can't wait to stay there again next year! Thanks Bev for being such a great owner!!!
Wow, Darra! Thank you sooo much for those kind words! Wait until you come next year! I just redid all the living room furniture, and paintings, etc.. it is looking gorgeous!! I 'lightened' it up! Sooo pretty!
We are thrilled to have you guys return each year! Thank you sooo very much!!! Bev
