We have nothing negative to say about this property. The owners were always so quick to respond. We had no troubles throughout our week long stay. The place was immaculate when we arrived, the views were beyond amazing. It was everything our family needed, and more! We look forward to staying next year!

Easy access to private beach, clean building with great amenities.

We loved our October stay at Sterling Shores #PH16! The condo has everything you could need and the VIEWS are to die for. It's across the street from The Back Porch for easy access to food and drinks on the beach. Also super close to Wal-Mart for groceries and supplies. The appliances are brand new, as well as the pull-out sofa and chair. Everything was great and made our Destin vacation amazing! Can't wait to come back!

My daughter and I spent five (5) nights at Sterling Shores PH16.
Sterling Shores was a great property. The large lagoon pool had plenty of seating and beautiful grounds. The water in the pool was way too cold for us, but there were some people in the water. There was a second pool closer to the beach. This pool already had the heater turned on and was way more comfortable for getting in. As such, it was quite crowded throughout the week, but not so much as to be unenjoyable. The property also had a snack bar with light food and drinks. The girls managing the snack bar were amazing.
The property included a gym (which we did not use) and chair service on the beach, which was not included. There was a section of beach dedicated for Sterling Shores guests which was located behind the chair service. We sat out of the way of the chairs so we could see the water directly. Parking was easy with plenty of spaces and the elevators were always quick.
The room itself was just ok. For a penthouse, the rooms were small and cramped. The decor was older and somewhat uncomfortable. The kitchen needs to be updated, and while there was plenty of utensils, there was a lack of plastic cups and mugs. There was lots of giant glassware, but we prefer not to use glass in a rental. I would have expected actual towel bars or hooks instead of "command hooks" in the bathrooms. There was just a general lack of "top floor" feel to this condo.
But - then again - I guess you are really there for the view, right?
We would go back to Sterling Shores, but would likely chose another condo on this property.
Manager response:
Hi Kellyann, thank you for staying with us. We are so sorry for the details that were amiss during your visit. We will ensure that all areas of concern are addressed appropriately. We hope you'll allow us another opportunity to host you.

PH16 was nice place to stay for short vacation. Great view from the balcony, clean rooms and fully equipped kitchen were all that we (4 adults) needed for three nights. The place itself is just a few steps to the beach and restaurants. Would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful condo, wonderful location, amazing pool, close to the ocean and a perfect view.
Nancy Jo H. Aug 2020
PH16 is a well layed out unit, albeit small, it still had everything we needed for a great vacation. The views from the top floor were extraordinary. The living room furniture needs a serious cleaning or replacement. The couch and chair were visibly dirty and felt "sticky". We covered them with a sheet before sitting on them. Other than that Sterling Shores was wonderful and we look forward to our next trip there in a few weeks (in another condo unit).
Manager response:
Hi, Nancy Jo! We appreciate your feedback and apologize the furniture was not in great condition upon your arrival. New furniture will be placed in the unit this fall. Thank you!

We loved our stay in Destin, particular due to the spectacular views we enjoyed from the property. Property management checked on us frequently to make sure everything was going well. The washer was damaged and could not be repaired during our stay, however, we were thoroughly informed of what was going on and also given a credit for the mishap. Highly recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Destin.

The condo was everything that we needed for a getaway for our family of 5. There are so many activities that are close by, and the grounds are amazing. Can’t wait to come back next year.

Great communication with the owners. We had some anxiety coming to Florida with covid, riots and then possible hurricane. We had people back out last minute and after talking to the owners decided to come on the trip and loved it. Thank you for making us feel safe!! Beautiful room with a amazing view. Great pool and location. Minutes from the beach. Literally walk thru pool area n thru other pool area n beach right there. Every morning out chairs where placed out on beach with our name in them!! Thank you again!!

The view was wonderful, as is the location. The property is well maintained. The unit had everything we needed for amenities. The owner was very responsive to any questions, and provided us lots of info about the area prior to our arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Loved the beautiful penthouse views of the beach! The condo was decorated with coastal colors & was everything we needed for a week at the beach. Will definitely rent this unit in the future.

We enjoyed our stay here. The owners were awesome, and we were comfortable. There were only 3 adults, but we could have had more. Great place!!

We enjoyed our month of February stay. Everything was clean and in good shape upon arrival. Very adequately furnished with everything one might need for short or lengthy stays. Would certainly recommend the unit to anyone.

This was our second time to stay there last year our room had a recliner which I sleep in due to back problems this year when our room didn't have one I thought my vacation wasn't going to be very good with no where to sleep but they rented me a recliner and it was delivered quickly I was so thankful
