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 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! This guest room has full access to the private second full bathroom. Each of the two bedrooms have their own flat screen TV and DVD players.

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.

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

"Winter" in Sterling Sands

  • 5 of 5

Well it may have been winter by the calendar and the locals, spending 3weeks there, in Dec, for Wisconsinites was heaven. As written in the more recent reviews this unit was totally renovated a few months ago including brand new plumbing fixtures and appliances and a brand new floor through out. It even has a small bar with wine chiller! While the heated pool was closed it will be open soon as the patio for each condo is being redone. The view couldn't be better with the dolphins swimming by occasionally and the birds and boats speeding by too. The one thing that doesn't get much comment is within three miles either direction there are some marvelous places to eat with fresh seafood. I could name 5 but McGuires and Bochamps come to mind--we ate at each three times in 3 weeks with great service and food each time. I can't imagine this condo would disappoint anyone--highly recommended by seasoned travelers. You will love the white sand beach only an easy 100yd walk and I understand beach service during warmer months is included!

Awesome Condo -- Could not be closer to the Ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This place was really great. First off it's totally renovated and was very clean. Everything is brand new and decorated in such a nice relaxing beachy way with high end touches. Plenty of storage and the master closet is HUGE! It was really nice to have 2 full bathrooms and the sleeping space is great. Lots of upgrades including the big screen TV. I loved that the beach service was included and the walk down to the beach was so short - very manageable with kids. There is even a shave ice stand right there! We spent several hours at the beach and also the pool. This is definitely a place I would hope to come back to time and time again -- wonderful family memories.

Fabulous Condominium!

  • 5 of 5

We are just getting back from our family vacation and can't wait until we can come back. This condo is beautiful. It was just renovated. It had everything we needed. It is centrally located in Destin.

The pool is nice and spacious. We loved how the walk to the beach was so easy. No long boardwalks. It was a pleasure working with the property manager Sherry. We would absolutely stay here again.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this property for over 5 years now. We love coming in October to watch the Destin Fishing Rodeo. It has a beautiful view of the Gulf with breathtaking views. Destin has a lot to do for everyone of every age. I highly recomend this property.

Sterling Sands

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation. We normally go to Orange Beach/Gulf Shores, but decided to try Destin and glad we did. The entire transaction was great. We rented on short notice and the owner was very quick to respond to our questions. Would not hesitate to use again. The condo is very clean, up-to-date, and met all of our needs. The view/balcony overlooks the pool and provides a great view of the gulf. VERY enjoyable trip.

Family Vacay

  • 5 of 5

This property is now a favorite location for my family. It was entirely more than we expected and roomy enough for myself, husband, 15 year old son with 2 friend, and my daughter age 11 and her friend. The inside details of the condo make it completely accommodating for all of my guest to have privacy and comfort. The master bedroom is amazing, with a huge walk in closet, beautiful Jacuzzi tub and separate modern shower, separate vanities with enough cabinet space to forget which one has your toothbrush. My husband and I felt as if we had a separate condo from the kids and plenty of privacy. The master bedroom also includes the sliding glass doors to enter the balcony without having to leave the room to enter through the living area while guest are relaxing watching tv or having dinner. Completely updated and very well maintained and cared for. Clean and comfortable down to the crisp soft white sheets on the beds. The owner of this property could not have been more kind and helpful. If we needed anything he was just a text away. We had our own private reserved covered parking space on bottom floor just across from the elevator! So unloading and loading were incredibly easy and in no time we were all at the beach. Our teenage boys were able to walk anywhere to get food, shop, and browse for friends. The property is just across the street from the beach shops and eateries. So we were not having to drive anyone around for food or entertainment. All major grocery and wine shops are just minutes away. Once you get to the 3rd floor your room is tucked in its own almost sound proof cove on your left .. steps away from the elevator which made coming and going an ease. The beach is just a short walk on the board walk where two reserved chairs and umbrella are waiting for you with your name for your entire stay. Absolutely no long walks to wear you out to the point of not wanting to go back and forth. Simple, relaxing, a complete delight ... worth every penny and more. We will return as often as possible and recommend this property to ALL of our friends. We also met the owner who lives in Destin and complimented him on keeping such a nice property for others to enjoy. He is a delight and I hope anyone trying to decide if this property is right for you, that you would contact him with questions. I assure you All of the details you see here are accurate and the pictures do not do it justice. Give it a try! Thanks so much again for the incredible stay!
