Beachview condo w/Jacuzzi tub, access to fitness center, & shared tropical pool

Let the stress from the daily grind melt away in the warm tropical sun as you dive into vacation mode at this oceanview Destin getaway. Boasting room for up to seven guests to enjoy the pristine communal pools, easy beach access, and on-site fitness center, this condo gives you every opportunity to enjoy the beach lifestyle with ease.

Located on the 10th floor of the premier Sterling Shore community, just steps from Florida's sugar-sand beaches, adventure and relaxation will always be close at hand. Check out the golf courses or explore the attractions at Big Kahuna's Water & Adventure Park to find something for everyone.

Take your morning cup of coffee out onto the oceanview balcony and connect to the free WiFi to snap a few pictures. The full-size, private washer/dryer will take care of the laundry while you lounge in the central A/C. Hit the fitness center for an invigorating workout and then head down to the beach and rent a stand-up paddleboard to get out on the wave.

Treat everyone to a night out at one of the local fresh seafood restaurants and then melt the stress away with a long soak in the master bathroom's Jacuzzi tub. Of course, if you'd rather cook your own meals, the fully stocked, updated kitchen has all the appliances, tools, and space you might need to prepare anything from quick breakfasts to multi-course dinners. This condo is well suited for families, and offers views of the gulf and the lagoon-style swimming pool from the private balcony.

Whether you're hitting the waves, flying down the water slides at the water park, or basking in the sun at the pool, the oceanview Florida condo makes it easy to enjoy everything the beach has to offer.

This place was the perfect honeymoon destination. We enjoyed our stay. We did not encounter any problems. The room was super clean & as described. Will definitely be back!
Ashley E. Oct 2021
This home was perfect for our family of four plus one. Our teenager had a friend tag along. It was spacious, clean and the beds were comfy!

Loved our stay. Would stay again.

Love the 10th floor and the condo is decorated nice but needs to replace fry pans that half the coating is off. Had to go out and buy our own, doesn’t have an ice maker, utensils for cooking need to be updated, there was no pot to cook shrimp, no hot pads and despite having extra pillows there were no pillow cases. We have been going to Destin two to three times a year since 1997 always staying at Sterling Shores and Sterling Sands and the condos have always had the essential items I mentioned. But the staff were all friendly as usual. The grounds are beautiful as usual and the pools were clear even after the tropical storm.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Gail. We are sorry to read you were missing some items and wish you had called to let us know. Inventory will be addressed right away.
James B. Jun 2021

We really enjoyed our stay at Sterling Shores #1017. The property was great as well as our condo itself. It was warm, inviting and actually very convenient. The views from the balcony lead to hours of just enjoying the waves and weather (which was the best Ive ever had at the beach). The condo was spacious comfortable. Yes it could use an update but that should not distract you from renting. Its not one of those types of condo's that is cheesy, it just could use some updating. The pools at the facility were very clean and so convenient, as well as the beach itself. Just don't order a pina colada because they just aren't good at making them. The placement of the property is great! Its not too far from the hustle and bustle of AJ's and the board walk (about a 20 dollar uber on a Friday night) but you can venture the other way and find a ton of great restaurants and activities headed towards Miramar beach. The only downside to going off property is the traffic. There is so much road work, its nearly a half hour to go a couple of miles. This of course isn't the fault of Sterling. The irony is that the road on the back of the property is called "restaurant row" and the only restaurant is Back Porch. So all this to stay, if you're going in late september/early October this was fantastic.

We like Sterling Shores. The location is perfect for our little family. 1017 is well decorated & was clean. The bedding seemed well worn and a little dated, but it was the end of the Summer season. It’s decorated nicely and has character. I am giving 4 stars because the refrigerator freezer door seemed broken & difficult to close. The ice machine in the refrigerator produced zero ice in 5 days and yes we made sure the ice machine was turned on with the bar down. Also, the freezer had a lot of frost in it. I’ll admit I was put off by having to purchase ice in the condo garage, $3.50 for ten pounds of wet ice. Between the condo owner & Sterling Shores, there should be complimentary ice like hotels provide. I will consider this when I book our next travel to Destin.
Manager response:
Hi, Simon! We appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your experience with us. The ice machine is owned by the HOA, so we are unable to do anything about it and apologize for the frustration this caused you. The freezer and refrigerator has been addressed. Thank you!

The place had plenty of room for four. Nice, clean kitchen, which we used. It's nice that even though the beach is across the street, they have a dedicated beach area. And, after being in the gulf waters, it's nice to jump into the pool before returning to the room.

We enjoyed our stay in Unit #1017 at Sterling Shores. The unit was beautifully decorated, nice bedding in both the Master and Guest bedrooms. The couch was comfy (although a little too many throw pillows). Balcony was great - we ate out on it one night and played games on it another night. So peaceful and a great view of the pool and beach! The kitchen had really everything we needed - although it had only one kitchen towel and no dish rags. The bathrooms had plenty of towels. The master bathroom doesn't have hardly any counter space, but we managed just fine. Lovely decor everywhere! Thanks for making our stay such a pleasant one.

Unit was nice and tidy, beach view was awesome. Almost had everything for perfect vacation days except carpet which is bit old and doors in 2nd bed is not getting locked.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us and sharing your review. The internal doors do lock, but they will unlock if you turn the handle twice as a safety feature to prevent children from getting locked in. We are discussing the possibility of getting the carpet replaced with the owner. We hope to see you again!

The kids loved the pool!
Sheila M. Aug 2019

Denise R. Aug 2018
Loved the mirror wall in the den, the comfortable beds, the gorgeous view from the double balcony, the spacious unit, both pools, and the private access to the beach and water spray post-beach.
The carpet could use a deep cleaning and a more thorough cleaning of showers.
Manager response:
We have scheduled a carpet cleaning for the soonest available opening, and a deep clean will be scheduled at the end of the busy season. Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay in this home for 4 night. The beach view was awesome and the pool was big and clean and we had access to WM, target and shopping stores. The home covered every thing as advertised and we needed during our stay.
The only negative point was the noisy bed/mattress during our rest time in the second bedroom. That can be an opportunity for improvement.
Overall, we was satisfied with our stay and will consider this house for the next trip to Destin
Erica M. Jul 2018

We absolutely loved it. The view was amazing, especially on the lounge chair on the balcony. The furnishing were very comfortable. Nice and clean.
Sarah G. Jun 2018
This unit was not clean. There were good stains on the sofa and a leftover tuna fish packet with fork under one of the beds. The can opener was not usable. There is a keurig coffee pot, so we bought a regular coffee pot,
Manager response:
We’re happy to report this home has new owners, who are committed to improve the home’s cleanliness. The sofa has been cleaned and there is a Keurig and a regular coffee maker. Thank you.
Al B. Jun 2018
We'll definitely be back!

We had a few issues when we checked in but overall it was great

Melvin & Kathy W. Mar 2018
Refridge quit 6 times (every 10 to 14 days) and food had to be kept in ice each time for 2 to 4 days. Also refridge was very loud.
We have stayed in Sterling Shores for the last 8 years with 11 other couples late Dec to Mar15 and stayed in 1017 the last 4 years.. When I asked for reservations for the same time next year the price increased from $71/day to $193/day !!!!!!.Will be staying next year in same building different unit (3 BR) for $67/day.
Manager response:
We are very sorry the refrigerator was acting up during this stay. A tech was able to come and repair the fridge so it is now working properly. Thank you!

This condo has all the amenities you could ask for. It is about a 3 minute walk to the beach, the Back Porch restaurant is across the street and many other eating establishments within a 5 minute drive. The beach is clean and beautiful. The condo grounds are well kept. My only complaint is there is no hot tub at this complex and the pool is not heated. The front desk staff is very helpful and polite. Parking is not an issue and plenty of elevators available.
