About Darlene & David Gilmore

We both grew up in Metairie, Louisiana a suburb of New Orleans, met at Pontchartrain Beach Amusement Park, married and have managed to raise two wonderful children in the last 30 years. Along the way we vacationed throughout the Panhandle with our family enjoying the sun and sand. We had always dreamed of a 'beach getaway' home away from home somewhere with sugar white sand and beautiful blue water. We are happy to offer our little piece of paradise, Destin style to you.

Darlene & David Gilmore purchased this condo in 2008

Why Darlene & David Gilmore chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Our family has vacationed for many years in the Florida Panhandle from Pensacola to Panama City Beach so we decided to own a piece of paradise at Sterling Shores. We looked at many condominiums in our search and found Sterling Shores to be the best of all worlds for us. The resort pools, beachfront grill, fitness room and close proximity to great restaurants, Big Kahuna Water Park, The Track, golf courses and fishing helped make our decision to buy.

What makes this condo unique

We love the panoramic view of the Gulf from both the master bedroom, den and balcony. Something about seeing the beach and the clear blue water relaxes you. There is something that relaxes you in Destin whether you sit on the beach, surf fish, deep sea fish, shop or eat. It's good for the soul.

The Guest Reviews that are listed came from our Guest Book in the unit. Our unit has been rented prior to now by different management.

Guestbook comments from the owner

One of the best rentals we've had at Sterling Shores!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed May 27-30th for Memorial Day holiday, family vacation. Very nice property, well maintained. The room is very well appointed, lots of space, lots of kitchenware and beach equipment. Room had nice movies to watch and books, magazines and games. Beds were very comfortable- really loved having the extra king in the guest room instead of twins- very convenient for my family. View from the balcony is awesome. Very clean. Owners easy to work with. Would definitely stay again and hope to in future.
