Room was smaller than expected but still great overall. Huge pool deck with plenty of chairs. Also loved the beachside pool and snack bar. Easy walk to the back porch restaurant. Located across from Walmart in the heart of destin. Would definitely return!!

We loved the spacious clean well stocked accommodations, nice pool area, great location - very convenient. If the beach access is important, this is not the place I would recommend. Very small area of beach for all of Sterling Shores & aggressive beach guards at adjacent condos even if you are with the 20 FT of public shoreline-they literally run... More

We've been to this location multiple times. It's a favorite doe our family due to location. Kid friendly. Great beach spot. Close to back porch and other activities. We will definitely return again. Excellent pool! Condos have all been tastefully decorated w excellent views.

This place is awesome. Room 1002 rocks. Nice three bedroom condo, very well kept. Nice pool , location is perfect very close to all the main attractions. Walking distance to nice restaurants. Will definitely be coming back next year. Thanks sterling shores for an amazing stay.

Sterling Shores is the perfect place for a family vacation. The pool is amazing for kids of all ages. There is a second pool with a bar that is more for relaxing. You are steps away from the most beautiful beach water you will see stateside. The beaches have sugar white sand and clear turquoise waters. The condos are soundproof,... More

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
