Rented this through VRBO. As for the condo itself, it was nice and came as advertised (pricey, but that's expected in Destin). But the beach area...ugh. First, the overpriced ($30/day) chair/umbrella combos are about 1 centimeter apart. Second, you can't set up your personal chair between these chairs and the beach (those are the rules, and they do enforce them).... More

Stayed 4 nights on a last minute family trip. The location is great. While not directly on the beach, it's just a very short walk. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Destin beaches are always crowded so it was nice to have 2 beautiful pools for a change. Unit 215 is a minimally decorated unit. Advertised as 2 bedroom... More

Every summer since 2009 my parents have made reservations here for our yearly beach vacation. We always get a great price with what used to be ResortQuest but I forget the name now. We have stayed in some of the larger condos & some smaller ones & they are all very nice. Every room has a view of the pool... More

Sterling Shores is a very nice condo complex. We paid $3,000 peak for the week for a 3 bedroom condo with plenty of space. There were basically 6 adults total (my wife and I plus 4 grown kids), at no point did we feel cramped. The 2 pools are nice, lot of younger kids in the big pool and the... More

We have stayed in units all over this property over the last five years. Each is different in size and decor, but all have been nice and comfortable. It's wonderful for extended family visits. The pool is excellent for kids and toddlers - it has a walk-in area to the shallow end and a water mushroom that children love. The... More

Sterling Shores is our home away from home! When our daughter was 4, she had bilateral hip surgery. Vacation that summer was essential. We were looking for a zero entry pool, easy access to the beach, and a wheelchair accessible condo with 'home' like amenities. Sterling Shores met our every request plus! We have continued to go 'back home' for... More

Advertise "on the beach" They are not. You actually have to walk across the property, and then across the street to get to the beach access. Very misleading in my opinion. Should say "beach views" instead.

We stayed at the Sterling Shores Resort June 13 to 19. We stayed in room 311, which was a one bedroom with a pull our sofa. The resort itself is very well maintained. Pools are clean and immaculate. Beach is only across the boardwalk, but very busy with many umbrella's and chairs. We enjoyed our stay except that we couldn't... More

I go to Destin twice a year and I've stayed in room 701 for the past 13 years with My family. Luckily Stealing Shores is located along hwy 98, a great location. Recently they updated everything, room 701 has new floors, countertops, beds, outdoor furniture, appliances, TV's, the whole 9 yards. My family's favorite tradition is watching the sun rise... More
