Why Dinah Porch chose Destin

I have been vacationing in the panhandle area for years. I have found mid Destin to have the most beautiful sand, and absolutely fell in love with Sterling Sands. It is a wonderful resort because it is large enough to provide great amenities (8 stories, 110 units), but small enough to provide a peaceful, family friendly vacation.

What makes this condo unique

I completely remodeled this unit, and had the assistance of 2 professional decorators in selecting the decor. It is so comfortable. I know you will really enjoy it too!

We enjoyed our getaway to Dinah’s lovely Destin condo. The condo has a beautiful view of the gulf. We loved the beach. Dinah was easy to communicate with & very responsive to any questions or concerns. The condo had everything we needed and was close to attractions and restaurants we enjoyed. We highly recommend this condo.

Great place for a Family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Destin! This condo works nicely for a family of 4. A pullout couch is a nice option when the kids are tired of staying in the same room! I really enjoyed having our Chairs and Umbrella ready to go every morning. This is really nice included touch that you don't want to underestimate.
