About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 5 in beds

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 1st floor which is actually the 2nd floor because the ground floor is a garage has amazing views of the gulf. The unit 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 bed with a four inch memory foam top for a comfortable night's sleep. The master bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom has a twin over full bed. Our beach home, with its fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and a sleeper sofa, is a great place for families. Sterling Sands is an eight story complex built in 1995.

This unit was completely remodeled in Jan 2014 with new flooring, cabinets, counter tops, fixtures, and appliances. 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 and guests must be 25 to rent.

perfect place

  • 5 of 5

I rarely review anything but I felt the need for this one. I am one of those that looks at a thousand listings and every detail. After alot of search we settled on this condo. I am thrilled to death that we did. the condo was fantastic in everyway. The view from the balcony was amazing. The amenities in the condo where great and the room/bathroom sizes were perfect. You literally sink right into the beds. The complex itself is perfectly located. Only minutes away from everything. Shopping food and fun. This condo was also very reasonable on price in comparison to others especially for all that you get. I had reservations about being on the lower floor but it was very convenient and still allowed for great views. I highly suggest giving this one a shot. We had a blast.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo! It is updated and very clean! Being on the 1st floor makes it very convenient and has easy access to the pool and beach. We have stayed in many condos at this complex but this is by far our favorite place to stay! We look forward to planning our next trip to Sterling Sands #104!!!

Awesome beach times!

This is a really nice condo with a great view from the balcony! I loved being right on the beach. It was nice to have a good size kitchen too so we could cook some of our meals. Comfy bed too. I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! We have stayed in many condos in Destin, and this is by far our favorite! It had everything that we needed. The beds were comfy, everything was clean, there were even to go menus out for us. We have stayed on almost every floor in this condominium, and this one was our favorite view. Located on the first floor, you can view the beach and pool area easily (even the grill area). All places we wanted to go were right down the street. I would definitely recommend this condo. We will be back next year!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Being on the first floor was perfect for our little ones and very convenient access to the pool and ocean. Gorgeous view of clear blue ocean! The condo is centrally located in Destin and it is close to restaurants, fun activities for the kids, and grocery/shops. The condo basically had every sort of accommodation that a person needs when travelling and vacationing. The beds were very comfortable and everything seemed well taken care of. We will definitely come back for our yearly family vacation!

Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year in this condo and we keep coming back. First - it has all the amenities you want and the comforts of home! The owners are so much better to work with than rental companies. We love the keypad on the door so we don't have to hassle with keys, it's on the first floor which means one quick flight of stairs down and no waiting on the elevators while enjoying the great ocean view, plenty of pool lounge chairs, and it includes two beach chair rentals with an umbrella! You are close to everything in Destin but really don't have to go anywhere if you don't want to. I highly recommend this condo!
