This large two bedroom, two bath Condominium is a Platinum Rated condo located directly on the beach in the heart of Destin. This second floor unit is at the luxurious Sterling Sands Resort.

Sterling Sands is an 8 story, 112 unit complex built in 1995 and is one of the most desired buildings in the Destin area. It is a mid-sized building with all of the amenities and is close to everything that is 'Destin'.

This gorgeous Condo is decorated and equipped with everything you may need! The kitchen is fully equipped and features mirrored backsplashes, corian countertops with an extra deep sink and eat-in bar. Our dining area will seat six comfortably and there is also a wet bar in the family room with an under counter fridge for storing those extra beverages and small freezer with ice maker. The beautiful furnishings are brand new as of January 2009 as are all of the bedding and window treatments with black out lining. The den features a leather pull out sofa bed along with 2 comfy chairs, all with a panoramic view of the Gulf. The family room has a 42' flat screen with surround sound that plays all your DVD's, CD's, radio and IPod/MP3's.

The master bedroom has a king size sleigh bed with a new, top of the line mattress, chest, and a huge walk in closet. There is also a 32' flat screen with DVD for your enjoyment. The huge master bath has a jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower and extra dressing area just outside the bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed with plenty of room for a portable baby bed if needed.

For the shopping enthusiast, we are minutes away from Silver Sands Outlet Mall and Destin Commons which features the Bass Pro Shop.

About Rick Elliott

We are from Atlanta, Georgia and love the close proximity of our home away from home

Rick Elliott purchased this condo in 1998

Why Rick Elliott chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Our condo is located in the heart of Destin, and while it is directly on the beach it is also close to shopping, restaurants, family entertainment, and nightlife.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy being able to walk to several very nice restaurants, and there is an amusement park right across the street and a water park 2 blocks away.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Okay, there was only two of us, but WOW, what a great place/space... Super convenient to everything. The garage parking is a big plus - your wheels don't cook all day. Chick Fil A is a couple blocks down the street. Walmart for whatever you need is a mile away. Fantastic views from the balcony. Clean as a whistle... No need to wait on an elevator during peek season... the stairwell is right out your front door. The complimentary beach chairs/umbrella are a HUGE plus. Less than the 5 minute beach walk to the very popular Back Porch ocean front restaurant. Finally, Rick, - the owner - is about as great an owner as you will find. Very responsive and attentive to help make your stay great!

Thanks so much Rick for opening your condo to us! The layout suited us to a tee and the balcony was great for morning coffee! Loved the ocean breezes, especially at night in the master bedroom! The location is perfect too. Easy walk to the Back Porch restaurant and short drive to Harbortown. Thanks again for making our week in Destin really nice, from start to finish! We hope to return next year!

Rick thank you so much for opening your "home" to us. The condo was perfect and we loved that you could take the stairs & avoid the elevator congestion. It was a great vacation!

Great Destin Condowant

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weeks stay at Rick's condo. He was easy to deal with and I believe truly wants his guest to be happy and completely satisfied with their stay. The unit is really large with plenty of space for two families if needed. It has a great view of the ocean and pool because you're not to high up. You get the breeze right off the ocean. It has a balcony that is over twenty feet long with views from master BR and LR. The floors are numbered basement then first,second,etc. This unit is actually two levels up from bottom so it is one floor higher than we thought it would be. Two flatscreen tv's, jacuzzi tub and walk in shower were all really nice but the best things about this unit are the amenities that Rick provides. Electronic coded door lock means no key or card to keep up with, covered parking keeps vehicle cool and the beach chairs and umbrella setup were hassle free. We went down first day and guys set us up on front in same spot for the whole week,they spoke highly of Rick also. I highly recommend this unit and Rick's price was all inclusive beating others in same building.

This condo is perfect in every way. Very comfortable and well furnished. Views from family room and master bedroom are beautiful. Grounds and pool are cleaned every day. Morning coffee on the balcony was excellent. If you are looking for a place to stay in Destin, this is it.
