Overview

About the property

Large 2 Bedroom Deluxe Unit + Den, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

From the white sands to the crystal green waters, Sterling Sands is one of Destin's most popular Gulf-front resort properties with gorgeous views of the gulf. Our condo is on the gulf, no street to cross, with a full-front gulf view. Gulf views in photos were taken from our balcony. Our two bedroom, two bathroom condo located on the 3rd floor (which is actually the 4th floor because the ground floor is a garage) has amazing views. This rental includes beach service of two chairs and an umbrella daily. The unit features a large balcony overlooking the Gulf from the master bedroom to the den with sliding door access from both. Our master suite features a King-size bed with a four inch memory foam top for a comfortable night's sleep. The master bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and a shower with an adjustable rainfall shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed and twin bunks. Occupancy is limited to 6 persons. Our beach home, with its fully equipped kitchen and dining area is a great place for families or a group of friends. Sterling Sands is an 80 unit, eight story complex built in 1995.The pool and walkways were recently refinished. The complex is very well maintained and in the heart of Destin.

Why Leslie or John Johnson chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We love Sterling Sands. The property is well maintained and the pool and walkways were recently remodeled. It is right on the beach in the heart of Destin.

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.

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.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The devil in me wants to tell all you potential renters that this is not the place for you.. Why? Because I don't want people knowing about this place and reserving future time slots that I want! Alas, the angel on my shoulder won out.. This is an outstanding condo at a terrific complex. Do yourself a favor and just rent this one. You will not be disappointed.

Perfect! Loved this condo.

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked in, we were super impressed. The condo was very clean and nice and had every convenience of home. The balcony ocean view was perfect. We watched dolphins each morning while drinking coffee. The master bed was very comfortable, great mattress topper. The furniture was upscale yet very practical. We will definitely plan to stay here again! We loved it!

Loved the contemporary salt life theme.

  • 5 of 5

I loved the property, beautiful landscaping, fantastic location, close to my favorite bottle shop: Beach Liquors! The decor and kitchen appliances are very modern and well maintained. We loved the view overlooking the beach, the water and what an expansive patio! The free beach chair reservation was awesome, our name was already on the chairs the next day and what a great location on the beach! The condo was very clean , my wife has ultra picky taste, and more than enough room for the three of us. My son loved the large walk in shower in the master!. Sterling Sands is my new go to location in Destin for family vacations. Thank you for the new family memories!

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.
