About the property

Sterling Sands is a low density building that is located right in the heart of Destin and is very popular with renters. A full scale renovation has just been completed which includes an extra-large pool deck with pavers, renovated pool bathrooms, new building paint and tiled walkways to your unit!

This meticulously maintained 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom unit is one of the larger units (there are 2 sizes) within Sterling Sands with access to the gulf front balcony from the living room and the master bedroom! EVERYTHING is BRAND NEW!! GORGEOUS WOOD PLANK TILE THROUGHOUT ENTIRE UNIT, NEW PAINT, NEW WINDOW TREATMENTS, ALL NEW FURNITURE AND MATTRESSES, ALL NEW KITCHEN/ GRANITE AND STAINLESS APPLIANCES. THE ENTIRE UNIT IS BRAND NEW AND BEAUTIFUL AND RENTALS ARE BOOKING FAST!! JUST ADDED! RENOVATIONS OF BOTH BATHROOMS COMPLETE.

Unlike most other two bedroom units at Sterling Sands that sleep 6 total, this unit sleeps 6 without using the pull-out sofa! If you choose to use the sleeper sofa, you can sleep 8!

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal at the end of a long day on the beach. The brand new dining room table seats 6 and has a wonderful view of the water. There are two seagrass bar stools for extra seating. The living room has a new queen pull out sleeper sofa, loveseat and chair for you to relax in at night while watching the new 55" flat screen TV. A wet bar with wine cooler is in the living room close to the extra-large balcony. Granite has been added to the wet bar area, also. A king size bed in the master bedroom has a view of the beach and water -- lay in bed and watch the dolphins playing right in front of you! There is a NEW 55" FLAT SCREEN TV so you can watch your favorite show after a long day at the beach. The master bath features an extra large, jetted, whirlpool tub and a newly tiled separate shower. The guest room has a queen bed and bunks so you can sleep 6 and not use the sleeper! We have just added a NEW 55" FLAT SCREEN TV to this room too! This guest room has full private access to the second full bathroom.

There is an eating table with 4 chairs and two chaise lounges on the balcony for relaxing and watching the evening sunset. There is also a full size washer and dryer in the unit to keep up with your laundry while you are away.

We have also made our outside beach closet available to our guests! There are sand chairs, some floats, sand toys, etc. for your enjoyment. Please feel free to add anything you buy and don't wish to take home for future guests.

The beach is accessed by two well-maintained boardwalks. They are lighted at night and each have two shower heads for cleaning up as you leave the beach. Beach service is onsite from March 1- October 31 and included in your rental is two chairs and an umbrella. There is a small exercise room on property available for your free use.

Directly across the street is an amusement park, and go-carts and mini-golf are walking distance.

Please make sure and print the rental agreement which is attached to the VRBO reservation form as a PDF download so you have it for your records. Your booking of the unit is confirming you have read and accepted policies in the agreement.

We invite you to our beautiful condo to make your vacation memorable!

Super clean, beautifully decorated, & great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best VRBO property we have experienced! This condo is totally updated and so, so clean!!! The decor is beach themed and fresh feeling. No odors at all. Location was ideal having three teenagers to entertain. Sterling Sands Condominiums is across the street from Mary’s Diner (great breakfast and lunch dining), Merlin’s Pizza and The Destin Track (put-put golf and go cart driving). The pool at the condo is so clean and heated. Hot tub was a big hit too! The condo is just feet from the ocean (wooden walkways to beach were also very clean and had a place to spray sand off feet). We have never been on a vacation that placed us so close to the beach with other fun stuff to do on the other side of the condo. We flew into Destin (VPS) and took Uber to the condo (didn’t even need to rent a car). Such a relaxing and fun time! Thank you for making your condo available to rent through VRBO! Grateful!!!

Immaculate! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful- from the views to the location, from the decor to the service-everything was fantastic! We had 8 people (2 adults, 6 children) and we had plenty of room to spread out. Barry was very helpful and was always quick in his responses to my e-mails! It was our home-away-from-home and we can’t wait to go back! Dream vacation spot, for sure!

We decided on Destin on short notice. Our initial planned vacation was unfortunately postponed due to IRMA. We had high expectations for Destin. When we arrived in Destin our first impression was “Destin is exactly what we need, relaxation and perfect weather. When we arrived at Sterling Sands, perfect location to everything, the condo was ready for us to move in. It was just as pictured, beautifully decorated and immaculate, but more so ... “homey”. Our stay in Destin we had everything: perfect condo, perfect weather, and the best location in close proximity to everything to make our stay just like home. Yes, we definitely highly recommend this property. We will be back! Thanks for everything!

Wonderful time!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the condo! It was clean, beautiful and updated nicely. The owners always replied promptly with any questions we had. We will stay here again when visiting Destin in the future. We are sad to go, but enjoyed our vacation with our three children. Highly recommend this condo!
