Our Favorite Spot in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is our new favorite spot in Destin! The location of the condo is in great proximity to restaurants, grocery stores, and activities which made for a quick drive to anything we needed; however, we barely left the condo and beach. The condo itself is immaculate and beautifully decorated; we felt at home from the start. We were surprised with how well-stocked the kitchen was with supplies - every time we realized we forgot to pack something, we checked the kitchen and it was already there for us. The view of the beach from the balcony is gorgeous and the inclusion of beach service was an added bonus. We typically get thrown a few rows back on over-crowded beaches when we stay at condos in Destin, but at this location there was only one row of chairs so we had a quiet, peaceful stay on the beach our whole week there. The owners were pleasant to correspond with and provided complete information prior to our arrival. Our entire stay felt as relaxing as being home, but with a splash of luxury. We will definitely book this condo for our future Destin trips.

Well Appointed!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, convenient location, and very well appointed! This was our 3rd stay here, and it's always good. The owners make sure this condo suits your needs and is comfortable for everyone. The extra beach equipment (umbrella/floats/chairs) really comes in handy! I love the unobstructed view from the balcony, thanks to the glass "rails". Plenty of parking, and easy access. We will definitely be back!

nice layout, great location, fabulous beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice condo with high quality furnishings and artwork. The included beach service is a nice touch.Wonderful views of the gulf.The owners are responsive and accomodating.

One recommended change: buy a box spring for the master bedroom! Anyone who can afford the rental is not 21 yrs old, and doesn't sleep close to the floor. Even my 11 year old commented on how low the bed is.

The other observation is the fitness center is closed, completely gutted and won't reopen for months. That was an important feature to us to use and we were disapointed. It was a hot topic of all guests around the pool.Put pressure on management to get it done.

My rating would have been five stars except for the closed fitness center, and the hot tub was busted for half the week.

Owner's Response: The master bed is a platform bed that is designed to be used with the platform support instead of box springs. Yours is the first complaint that the bed was too low. Most people enjoy it. The condo owners had not been notified that the fitness room would be closed for repairs and I apologize that you were disappointed. The hot tub was only closed for two hours during your stay. I did work to accommodate your requests and am disappointed that your rating was reduced by things out of my control.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo offered an amazing stay for our family (4 children). The condo has all the comforts of home and the beach is amazing. We walked up and down the beach in both directions and felt that we had the best situation in terms of beach and condo. No regrets at all and we would easily come back to the Sterling Sands. John and Leslie were great to work with.

Location

Nearest Airport
18 Miles
Northwest Florida Regional Airport (VPS),Ft Walton
Car: recommended

Fly Into Ft. Walton or Panama City airport.

There is so much to do! The beach, of course is the main attraction. Beach service of two chairs and an umbrella are included in the rental. You are able to rent extras. There are ocean kayaks and stand up paddleboards for rent. Many people enjoy parasailing and there are several operators nearby.

The Track, with go-carts, bumper boats, kiddie rides, bungee jumping and mini golf, is across the street. The Big Kahuna Waterpark is also within walking distance.

At nearby HarborWalk, there are many opportunities for charter fishing. Crab Island is a sand bar that attracts lots of people on the weekends and easily accessed by pontoon boat or jet ski which are rented from vendors on the harbor. Crab Island is just north of the Destin bridge.

If you enjoy shopping, there is plenty. The Commons and Silver Sands Outlet mall are a short drive away.
