Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)


You must really see this unit to believe how beautiful it is. Penthouse 13 was professionally decorated with not a single detail overlooked. Enjoy many beautiful gulf views from this remarkable three bedroom two bath condo. Sterling Shores is a great property in the heart of Destin close to The Back Porch restaurant.

This amazing property features a large master suite, large master bathroom w/ stand up shower and whirlpool tub.

Penthouse 13 features two guest bedrooms. One with two twins and the other with a full sized bed. TV’s are located in all bedrooms and the living room. A guest bath is located by the guest bedrooms.

Convenience is everything while on vacation, so to make life easy, PH13 has an actual laundry room in the condo.

Enjoy cooking and conversing with the whole gang as the kitchen/dining/living room all have an open concept. This also means you get to enjoy those gorgeous emerald green waters from the kitchen, dining area and living room! AND also from the master bedroom and the extended balcony.

Wanting to really get that resort feel? Sterling Shores is where it’s at!! Choose between two pools (one of which is directly on the beach!!) a lagoon pool which is beautifully landscaped and features a zero entry area and mushroom water fountains (about 4,300 sq. ft.) and the oasis pool is heated and directly on the beach!! The beach side pool has plenty of seating, seasonal snack bar, and cabana with bathrooms.

Sterling Shores also has a designated beach near the beachside pool. Beach vendors are also available for additional fees such as chair rentals, jet skis, etc.

A local’s favorite, The Back Porch, is directly next to your beach meaning you can easily enjoy a cocktail or a quick snack. Their gumbo is excellent too!

Just a few things that Sterling Shores offers you during your stay is high speed internet in your room, private gulf-front beach club including oasis pool, private balconies, 42-seat surround-sound theater, awesome barbecue area right near pool, seasonal beach rental service (fees apply), and a gated entrance.

Sterling Shores is located in downtown Destin. It is very close to many restaurants and shopping and the popular Big Kahuanas water park as well as the The Track!!

As always some restrictions may apply to discounts!:)

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our first stay at Sterling Shores. Our favorite was the pool area, its very lush and pretty. The condo we stayed in was pretty and we all had our own space which was great when everyone was trying to unwind at night.

Views day or night are beautiful. It was all very clean even the grounds of the resort.

Condo was some what clean. Needed to be dusted!! The dryer didn't try... Hung my clothes on the balcony to try after staring the drying cycle for the third time. Seriously only 1 trash back for 4 ppl in the kitchen for the whole week!! I loved the jacuzzi bath tub. Close to Walmart and restaurants. Love the 2 pools!!! Property could use a hot tub ! It was very nice having the bbq grills there. Would recommend this property to my friends

Great family vacation property and location, would stay again

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult for a family of 7 with kids ranging 2-16 to find an optimum vacation rental, but this top floor suite at Sterling Shores served us very well. The view was great, overlooking the ocean when waking up from our master BR (separated nicely from the kids!), and our balcony overlooked the pool as well so we could ensure the teenagers were where they said they were! Convenient to shopping outings and the waterpark, and I took our son deep sea fishing as we were 10 minutes from the boating area. Would recommend and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review! I have no doubt it will help future vacationers with their accommodations. Sterling Shores is one of my favorite resorts. The views of the beach are great but so are the views of the lush landscaping and the gorgeous lagoon pool. I really like the grilling area out by that pool too. We hope to have you stay with us again in the future and again, we appreciate the time you took to let us know how your stay went!

Pretty Condo- nice pools & grilling area. beach side pool was awesome!

  • 4 of 5

My whole family had a great time at this place.

We loved both pool areas and really loved the look of the lagoon style and the location of the beach side pool.

We had other relatives staying in condos here too so it was nice to have everyone together. I liked our condo the best though.

We will be back!

although the room was decorated nicely, this room has quite a few flaws! the living room chairs are very uncomfortable and the cushions slide off as you are sitting on them. the room does not cool off very well, the master bedroom stayed very hot and the fan was too noisy to run, it squeaks very loudly. the dryer did not work properly, we had to dry our clothes 3 or 4 times. there is not a sufficient amount of bath or kitchen towels, we had to wash daily.

the owner is difficult to deal with! i found her extremely rude!

Owner's Response: “Unfortunately if we are not informed of maintenance issues, we are unable to fix them. We generally respond within the hour for maintenance problems and take whatever steps are necessary to rectify the issue. We’re sorry to see you didn’t like the furniture, however, all our records indicate positive reviews regarding all furnishings- so we’re not too sure what happened in this instance. We hope you enjoyed your stay!”
