Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy a relaxing Vacation In This Newly Renovated/ Furnished, All Flat Screen T

Sterling Shores is located across the street from all the major attractions in Destin. The resort is located within 5 miles of the following: Destin Commons, Big Kahuna Water Park, 'The Track Go Carts', bumper boats and cars, bungee jumping, putt putt golf. Convenient shopping to Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Marshalls, Home Goods, BBB and let's not forget the Outlet Mall.

Relax, unwind and enjoy making memories in Destin in our well appointed luxury condo. This beautifully renovated condo comes furnished with all new furnishings which includes a King Bed in the Master and a Queen Bed in the guest bedroom. The living room sofa opens up to a Queen size bed. There are three flat screen TV's with DVD players in the living room and bedrooms. The Stainless appliances and granite counter tops add to the beauty of this vacation rental.

Sterling Shores has two pools, one is a 4300 square foot, zero-entry, lagoon pool with a mushroom fountain for the kids to enjoy. There is a barbecue area with dining tables for your outdoor grilling. Also, enjoy the heated beachside pool for a more grown up atmosphere which includes a beach side grill that serves one of the best burgers in Destin and many other dining selections. Also enjoy some refreshing frozen drinks or ice cream and snow balls.

Next door is the well known 'Back Porch Restaurant' which has a wonderful selection of fresh fish and just about any selection of food your palette may want to experience. Enjoy the newly expanded dining porch that sits directly on the Gulf. Spend your evening enjoying some 'adult beverages' while watching the sun set.

The resort offers daily activities for the children to enjoy and a 32 seat theater on the 2nd floor for a movie viewing. There is also a newly remodeled work out room for your enjoyment, and for those sore muscles enjoy a 'Hot Bath' in the Jacuzzi tub which is in the condo.

Please contact the owner for information regarding availability and early booking discount. We accept personal checks as long as they are mailed in time to make sure it clears our bank. We also can accept credit card payments if you contact our office directly.

About Melanie Gonzales

Gary and I are both employed full time. We are empty nesters but unfortunately not ready or able to retire. It is our hope and dream to spend more of our leisure time here in Destin with our family. We both find the area to be so relaxing and of course the beach and water is truly beautiful.

Melanie Gonzales purchased this condo in 2014

Why Melanie Gonzales chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Gary and I and our children have always loved staying at Sterling Shores, here in Destin. We took our family vacations here when our children were young. For the last three years, we have contemplated purchasing a condo either in Gulf Shores or Destin. While Destin is one hour further for us to drive, we truly love the color of the water here in Destin and just the area in general. It has so much to offer for a family looking to vacation, as we did. With that being said, this past January we purchased our long awaited Beach Home.

What makes this condo unique

After searching for three years and making many offers on condo's we chose to purchase in Destin at Sterling Shores. The property is well maintained and conveniently located to all the major attractions. This is a great place to have a family vacation!

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was more than I expected. It was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. I appreciated the attention to little details like having coffee filters, napkins, bar soap, etc. so we didn't have to go out and buy these things.

Nicely decorated, clean

Property and condo were great! Only 1 suggestion: Bedrooms need smaller furniture and more efficient use of space. Had a great time and location was perfect!

Excellent vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and very clean. The swim pools were large,cool and very clean (some condo units pools are warm bath water, not these). Always saw office staff around the property and they were helpful. The 2-bedroom condo décor was absolutely beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The condos are very close to restaurants, shopping and family activities. I recommend this unit for any one's stay.
