We stayed in unit 415. It is called "sweet retreat" and that is a great description! It is a beautiful condo. You are greeted with a "sweet treat" and the best sun screen available ( Arbonne). It has been recently updated and is very comfortable. If you are here with kids there is a closet full of beach toys, Xbox...

We stayed at this location for our first family vacation to Destin. This place was great!! The check in was so smooth and the man at the front desk was so nice and helpful.

The front desk was was very informative and nice. Our condo was very updated and clean. The condo really had anything you would need to make it a home away from home. We will definitely use them again.

We've stayed at this resort / condo for 9 years now about once or twice a year. Always at Sterling Shores. We love the beautiful condos with gorgeous ocean views. We love the two pools offered. One huge big pool that's zero entry for little kids with a mushroom waterfall. And one pool across the street that's a little smaller...

Beautiful quality furnishing. All new. Very well equipped- beach toys too. Great view- unobstructed. Wifi was good for us. Avoid all the beach nonsense by renting chairs at $30 /day or $150 /week if you want water front. Or walk up to public beach. If sterling shores chairs are sold out the guy to right will rent to you too...
