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... More

We have been here very year for ten years! It is by far the best value in Destin. The views are amazing, as well as the multiple pools. The pools are Great for very small children. The hotel features events and activities during the day at the pool. The hotel also has movie nights for the kiddos. The adults can... More

Month of Stay: June 2016 Rental #518 was just as advertised (VRBO), comfortable (including the sofa sleeper) and clean with a nice view of the pool and the ocean. The only complaint I heard was the top bunk mattress was not comfortable. Definitely would stay here again! Rental through arrival were very easy. Sterling Shores was well maintained and clean....

Although the beach and views were beautiful our trips condo experience was a disappointing and time consuming stresser. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and immediately had problems. We hadn't been given the gate code so had to park in the public parking. We then went to our unit and discovered it was wrong. As it was Sunday no one was... More

We stayed in Unit 303. The unit was bigger than expected. With the new building going up, the view to ocean/beach is blocked. The best thing about this property is the lagoon style pool. I loved how they had chairs with umbrellas already set up for guests. It would be nice if the pool opened up earlier though.....9 am is... More

This past June some of my friends and I stayed in room 701. The room is really nice and fit my large (9 people) family comfortably. Both pools are very nice and the staff do a good job of keeping the pool relaxing and calm. The condo is in a great location with a candy shop, which serves AMAZING breakfast,... More

I took my wife here for our honeymoon and on the whole we have loved staying here. I do echo the complaints of several others about the beach rentals and how much they interfere with the beach experience. The condo was clean and well supplied. My upstairs neighbors were a little noisy, but it wasn't a deal breaker. This condo... More

This is our second staying at Sterling Shores over the Memorial Day weekend. We had a two-bedroom condo on the 9th floor with a great ocean view. The condo was very clean and well-stocked. The entire resort was very clean. The main pool is very nice and never felt crowded, even on the holiday weekend. The main pool is very... More

We stayed in unit 817. The views were simply amazing, floor to ceiling windows in the main living space and master suite overlooking the Gulf. Both areas had a large patio type door to have an open air feel to it. The condo unit itself was nice, had upgraded granite counters and overall "Beachey" feel to it. The refrigerator was... More

We stayed in unit 212. We were very happy with everything. Sergio the owner was in contact with us several times to make sure things were ok. The thing we liked the best was it was about a 1/2 block from the beach. Also it was very quiet during the night.
