Sterling Sands is an 80 unit newly upgraded beach front retreat located directly on the Gulf of Mexico in the heart of Destin. This platinum plus rated fifth floorcondo unit sets a new standard for the building. It is 50% bigger than some of the other 'Two' bedroom condos in the building. You can relax and enjoy the panoramic view of the 380 foot stretch of beach from the spacious balcony. With only 80 units there is always easy access to and from the spacious beach front. Feel your stress and tension melt away into the cool calm water, or be kissed by the sun while laying on the pristine soft sands.

You are just a short 10 minute beach walk to the restaurant Back Porch, save room for the Candy Shop. Directly across the street you can find Pizza, Subs, large beverage store, and ice cream/yogurt.

Destin Commons has a huge movie theater complex, Hard Rock Cafe, Bass Pro Fishing shop, Johnnie Rockets, and all the mall shops you have come to know and love in a beautiful outdoor setting (don’t forget your sun block!).

Before Destin was a vacation and tourist spot, it was a fishing town. If you are interested in doing some fishing while in Destin, Fort Walton Beach has just built a new fishing pier, and deep sea fishing is right up the street!

If you like road trips, take a drive down 30-A to Seaside, Rosemary Beach, and see everything in between for some spectacular sightseeing. Also located eight miles east on the bay side of the Sandestin Resort is the newly erected Baytowne Wharf area. Here you will find more shopping and great restaurants overlooking the Choctowatchee Bay. For the kids, Baytowne Wharf offers bungee jumping, dune buggies, go carts, and a water park right across the street, or drive a couple miles east on Highway 98 and you’ll find a great amusement park. If you want to feel like you have really gotten your money's worth, and have never been to Destin, now is the time to go. No matter how long you stay, it is never enough.

The Emerald Coast was recently picked as the #1 Beach in America by USA Today readers and selected for the 12th year in a row as the “Best Beach in the South” and “Top Family Destination” by Southern Living readers!

About AJ

I and my wife love traveling and have traveled the world. We have been married for 19 years with two kids. We stayed at many world class resorts and have loved the way Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton do business. We wanted our guests to experience the same quality and feel special and forget everyday worries. We wanted to make the condo like we could live in.

AJ purchased this condo in 2013

Why AJ chose Destin

It is in the heart of Destin with convenient beach access and close to restaurants. Covered parking and close to elevator was a plus.

What makes this condo unique

It's central location in Destin gives you easy access to food, shopping, entertainment and fun within minutes.
