Diane and Bob Fiore purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Diane and Bob Fiore chose Destin
We are very proud of the like-new condition in which we keep our Gulf of Mexico ocean view condominium. WE ARE NOT A MANAGEMENT COMPANY; we are the original owners and live in Destin. Great location near The Track and Big Kahunas. Restaurants close enough to walk. Back Porch is a favorite of our family and is across the street with a great Gulf front view. Sterling Shores has two pools--one is gulf front and the other is a free form fabulous fun for everyone masterpiece. We hope you will visit soon!
What makes this Condo unique
We are local owners who want to save you money!! Sterling Shores is a 'stay and play' vacation destination. Walk to the Back Porch Restaurant, and Candy Man's for breakfast. Very near recreation destinations of Henderson Beach State Park, Destin's Morgan Sports Center, Big Kahuna's and The Track. Great grocery stores and markets with WalMart within one mile and The Fresh Market and the new Whole Foods (next to Bass Pro) , are wonderful 'foodie' experiences close by as well. Publix is less than two miles. Destin is a shopper's dream with the largest designer outlet mall in the country and dozens of boutiques to suit your individual fashion sense. Fine, award winning dining abounds including many of Florida Trends top picks or well as casual, waterfront restaurants that welcome bathing suits and bare feet. There are even restaurants with playgrounds right on the beach. If you prefer natural beauty with miles of sugar white beaches and award winning state parks with miles of hiking trails with some of Florid'a highest sand dunes and coastal fresh water lakes are here too.

Awesome Get Away.....😊
Me and my husband came down for our anniversary and loved every minute of it. The condo was very clean and comfortable and to top it all off the owners left us a Key Lime Pie in the refrigerator that was to die for. We were very pleased and really enjoyed her stay there.
We were delighted to host your anniversary celebration, and hope you will make our condominium home your annual location for celebrating all of life's wonderful events. It was a pleasure having you. Sterling Shores #312 is our in town get away, so we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Congratulations again, and cheers to many more happy years together.
Warmest personal regards from Destin, FL.,

We had a memorable stay at Sterling Shores.
The pool was a huge hit with the kids and the great location was the best!!
We hope you will continue to make family memories at Sterling Shores. Thank you for visiting our beach community.
Great room with a view and many comforts
Perfect room for a couple. The view was amazing and in a convenient location to many local attractions. Bed was very comfortable and home was clean and welcoming.
Thank you for your visit, Tricia. We hope to welcome you often. Bob and I appreciate your kind words.
We agree that Sterling Shores #312 is a great condo for couples, and we enjoy the gulf view for our own in-town get away. With the commercial grade sofa sleeper, it is also comfortable for small families who love the fabulous pool and the location, and we welcome them all year long, too. Big Kahunas and The Track are such a short distance away, that some families just walk.
When you think of a beach vacation, we hope you will remember us!
Our warmest Destin regards,
Diane and Bob

I am enclosing a few bits of information that I think might make your trip more enjoyable.
Bicycle rentals: Bikes are Us has been in business for 25 years and told me they are the least expensive in the area. They deliver and pick up. Telephone 850-837-6947. There are several other rental companies as well if you wish to check rates and service.
For pontoon rentals check with Aloha Pontoons located on the Destin Harbor 850-428-1013. Be sure to explore our beautiful harbor front and all the fishing boats and their catches. It’s fun! And free!
We have an excellent library and also a Community Center. Both have activities for you to check out.
Our state parks are awesome!! National treasures! Our beaches are world class, and our sugar white sand is famous. Take a hike or a walk or just go sit and gaze! Sublime! Check out Henderson Beach State Park, Tops’l (great place for bicycles and they have bike and kayak rentals there) Camp Helen, Deer Lake, and Grayton Beach for a start. If you have time travel the beach road from Navarre to Pensacola to see the Gulf Islands National Seashore; it is surely one of the prettiest beach front drives in the country. If you go, think about visiting Ft. Pickett National Monument. You may look all these up on the internet, of course. Florida State Parks has a wonderful web site. If you are 55 or older, look into getting a Golden Age Passport for free or reduced access to Federal properties. You might also enjoy visiting Pensacola and its rich history. Perhaps stop at the aviation museum there or walk to the top of the light house. Palofox Street has been recognized for its lovely use of downtown space and its historical significance. Don’t hesitate to look these up on the internet for additional details on anything that is of interest to you.
For other day trips, we love Fairhope, Al. and Apalachicola which is east of Destin. Both are about a two hour drive each way and are small and lovely towns. Fairhope is very gentrified with baskets of flowers hanging from the street lamps. Apalachicola is more rustic and authentic with shrimp boats and a very active and busy oyster industry; oysters are still harvested with tongs by hand which is very unusual and one of only a few places they do this.
Please also consider a 45 minute drive to Seaside. Perhaps have a beverage on the deck at Bud and Alleys. Drive a bit further to see Allys Beach and Rosemary Beach. The 30A area has become high end and popular. Seaside is one of the first towns to use urban planning and was featured some years ago on 60 Minutes. You can find more information on the internet about these places as well.
For local organic grocery shopping, I hardly think you will find more options conveniently located than in our small community. Please look up Fresh Market and Whole Foods. Both are outstanding for selection and service as well as locations near Sterling Shores. Whole Foods is much larger, so lots of everything. However, we love them both. We also like Publix, and you might, too. There is a Wal Mart almost across the street from Sterling Shores.
Please let me know what I have left out. We are available for your questions. I know you will have a fabulous time exploring! Have FUN!!!
