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. This unit is on the gulf, no street to cross, and a full-front gulf view. Gulf views in photos were taken from our balcony. Our two bedroom, two bathroom Condominium located on the 2nd Floor, features a 15 foot sliding glass door overlooking the heated pool & Gulf that makes for an incredible view. Our master suite features a King-size memory foam bed with Jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom has a twin over full bed. Our home, with its fully equipped kitchen, dining area, is a great place for families or a group of friends.

It features a heated Gulf-front pool, outdoor spa, a covered barbecue area with picnic tables, free-high speed internet, and in-season poolside kid activities. At Sterling Sands you are close to amusement parks, golf, shopping, and restaurants. The Track Family Recreation Center and Big Kahuna are within walking distance. For a beachside vacation to remember, come stay with us. This is a non-smoking unit. Please check our calendar for availability. The unit is owner managed and operated.

The Unique Benefits of this Condo: For kids, Big Kahuna and The Track are within walking distance. Sandestin's Baytowne has a band on Wednesday night. Harborwalk always has great food and nightlife with a great view of the harbor and fireworks on Thursday nights in the summer. We always love a bargain and Marina Cafe has an early bird special from 5 to 6 every night with a half-priced menu. Dewey Destin and Fisherman's Wharf also offer local seafood. You can walk the beach to the Back Porch Restaurant. Another Broken Egg is great for breakfast or lunch. There are so many restaurants, we will continue to explore them for years to come. Oh, and don't forget the shopping! The Sterling Sands outlet mall is nearby as well as Destin Commons.

About Johnny or Leslie Johnson

We are owner/operators that love Destin and have worked hard to make our condo one that you will want to return to. The remodeling was a three week labor of love that we completed ourselves.

Johnny or Leslie Johnson purchased this condo in 2010

Why Johnny or Leslie Johnson chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have been coming to Destin to vacation since the 60's. There is no place like it. The sugar white sand and emerald green waters are unlike anywhere else we have visited.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Best condo ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our first visit to Destin! The condo was absolutely beautiful! The condo decor, furniture and artwork was so neat!! The master bed was extremely comfortable. Every night we slept well and it was quiet!!! Best view of the pool and ocean from our second floor balcony. Lots of dolphins spotted from there as well. There is plenty to do within walking distance, especially for teenagers. Fireworks from the beach were an added bonus!!! The condo owners are very prompt to communicate with you for any questions/conerns. Highly recommend this beautiful place to stay!!

wonderful condo to stay in

  • 5 of 5

The condo we stayed in was clean and decorated well. It was a very nice place to stay. We could look out the back door and hear and see the ocean. The owners were very nice. My family and I will definitely be back next year.

Thoughtful and Attentive Owners

  • 5 of 5

They thought of every detail when setting up this vacation home. I really appreciated the nice dishes and wine glasses, and everything I needed was right there when I went to get it (can opener, peeler, etc). We have very small children so functionality is important to us, it was comfortable like home. We also REALLY enjoyed all the whimsical artwork, some were painted by the owners themselves so I felt they'd really put a piece of themselves there. The art was fun and interesting and the unit was beautiful. It's also a great view of the pool and beach! Very convenient. If you're new to Destin, Sterling Sands is close to everything and my personal favorite. It's a smaller building than many down there so it's easy to get in and out and not wait all day for the elevator.

Perfect Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lot of time searching for the right place to stay and we definitely found it! The condo is newly remodeled, beautifully decorated, comfortable and very clean. The pool and beach access is easy. The inclusion of beach chairs and umbrella with the unit is nice. I suggest checking in with the beach attendant as soon as you get there to get a prime spot early in the week. The condo was just perfect for our family of 5 (3 daughters - ages 12, 10 and 6). The owners were a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend this condo to friends and family and would love to return in the future!

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.
