Why Dinah Porch chose Destin

I have been vacationing in the panhandle area for years. I have found mid Destin to have the most beautiful sand, and absolutely fell in love with Sterling Sands. It is a wonderful resort because it is large enough to provide great amenities (8 stories, 110 units), but small enough to provide a peaceful, family friendly vacation.

What makes this Condo unique

I completely remodeled this unit, and had the assistance of 2 professional decorators in selecting the decor. It is so comfortable. I know you will really enjoy it too!

                                                          We loved our stay in Destin! This condo works nicely for a family of 4. A pullout couch is a nice option when the kids are tired of staying in the same room! I really enjoyed having our Chairs and Umbrella ready to go every morning. This is really nice included touch that you don't want to underestimate.

The famous Another Broken Egg is another favorite breakfast spot. Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse is just east of the complex. Destin Commons, a fabulous shopping and dining area and the Bass Pro Shop are a short drive to the east. Continue east to the famous outlet shops.

                                                          1. No Pets, No Smoking. 2. You have an option of a $300 refundable damage deposit or the $59 nonrefundable VRBO damage Protection, if you book through VRBO. See Rental Agreement for more details. 3. As a rule I do not book stays that overlap two weeks (for instance, generally I do not book wed to wed, sun to sun, or thurs to tues). During slower periods I might do so at my discretion.
