I went down to Destin with a few friends and their families, and this was by far one of the best places I've stayed. There was so much to do right around the condo, such as shopping, go karts, mini golf, and all types of other fun things. If I had a choice, I'd stay here every time I came...

While I did enjoy the location as I was taking 3 - 17 year old girls on their Senior Spring Break I did not enjoy the constant harassment from the security guard. I understand he has to keep peace but he needs to understand how to be successful in his work. I am a retired police officer and his main...

We loved our condo. Beautiful view of the golf! Nice pool area, but the high school kids literally took over the complex. Seems to me they need way more security here during break. Elevator has been down all day, sucks to be on the 10th floor with no elevator :( Not a whole lot of options to eat close by...

Sterling shores has been a great family stay! We've been three times in the last few summers. We always choose sterling shores and come back here every year!! Lots of activities to do with the kids. They have a great pool, and not even a 5 minute walk to the beach! There is a lovely restaurant right across from the...

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 view from our condo was amazing and it had everything we needed for our stay. The location is close to everything. I don't think we...

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 stayed in unit 1001! Luxurious accommodations! Lots of room and an amazing view. We picked the perfect time, right after Labor Day, no long waits, quiet and serene. Coffee on the deck, games and movies in the condo. Heavenly!!

By far the best place to stay! Every condo we've rented through VRBO has been clean , well stocked and with Great views of the Gulf. There are 2 pools. One very large one right outside the condos and another one on the ocean front. Both very clean and well taken care of. There is Tiki Bar by the ocean...
