“Loved Sterling Shores #607”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2015

This is a lovely condo. We were pleasantly surprised that it looks better than the online pictures. The grounds are very well kept and the pool area was extremely clean. This location is an easy walk to nearby restaurants most notably The Back Porch. There is also a candy store within walking distance. The unit has recently been updated and we had everything we needed for the week. You will not be disappointed if you rent this unit. The view of the ocean is also an additional plus.

Owner's reply: So happy you enjoyed your stay at Sterling Shores 607! We do our best to keep it in tip top shape for everyone! Glad you like the upgrades! The property is immaculate and close to every thing in Destin!

Stunning 2 BR Condo that comes with everything you need and is located in a very safe and secure community. The Condo is very spacious and tastefully decorated. The view of the ocean is fabulous and the balcony is large enough for several people to enjoy the scenery. The beds are comfortable, linens and towels are provided. Wonderful location within walking distance to the Back Porch as well as to shopping and the Trax. This is a rare find! I cannot wait to visit again. Don't pass this one up....

Our family just returned from a week's stay at this condo. This was our first condo experience and it did not disappoint. The unit is very clean and nicely decorated. It was well equipped with everything we needed and it was close to everything. The walk to the beach was minimal and the view was spectacular. We will definitely recommend this unit to friends and family and plan to return to Destin and stay in this unit.

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful condo for a week just over a month ago, and we're still thinking about it! We are long time Emerald Coast visitors, and without question, this condo was the absolute best we have ever stayed in! First off, it was the largest unit we have ever seen for a 2 bed/2 bath, really spacious & roomy. Full kitchen, dining area, large living room area, wonderful gulf-front master suite with huge walk-in closet and attached bath. The second bath was also really good size, as was the second bedroom. No bunks in the hall at the Sterling Shores! The balcony was also one of the largest we have ever had the opportunity to experience. With regard to the decor, the owner did an excellent job remodeling it. Everything is top-notch, extremely clean, comfortable, and has an "island" feel to it. Plus, there is a full size washer & dryer in the unit. The pictures on the page don't quite do it justice. Really nice! As far as the location, we loved how the Shores is laid out! It's tucked in, a bit more protected from the traffic on HWY 98 than many of the other properties, the grounds by the main pool are plush & green, and the walk to the beach is about 2 minutes across a little brick pathway on old 98. Vehicle traffic moves very slow, if there is any that is. We have walked much farther than that in the past, for true same side of the street ocean front properties. Some people have mentioned the noise of the little airport that's located not too far from the Shores. We were AMAZED at how well built the Shores is, in that when we were in the unit, we never heard a plane, not once! Really solid, quiet building. We also never heard any other doors to other units slamming, people walking to their units, nothing. That's fairly rare in our experience and a welcome treat! Check-in and payment was a breeze. Paid in advance, and the owner then emailed us the door codes. No keys, no wristbands! This was an awesome way to check in! No standing in line at the front desk, just drive up, and literally go up to the unit, punch in the code, and you are there! After a 15 hour drive from WI, we really appreciated that aspect of arrival! The owner also arranged for an early check-in for us, which we really enjoyed. All in all, we had no problems or complaints about this unit or complex! Loved, loved, loved it! We highly recommend this particular unit and will definitely stay here again! You will not be disappointed!

What a lovely home away from home! The condo was beautifully decorated. Everything was new, fresh and clean. The grounds and both pools were very clean and well-maintained and the white sand beach and crystal clear water was spectacular. We had dinner on the balcony a couple of evenings and the view was incredible. It is very convenient to restaurants, shopping and other activities. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We would highly recommend this property to our friends and relatives and hope that we will be able to return for another stay in the future.

Beautiful Condo

Review submitted: June 3, 2013 Date of arrival: May 25, 2013

This condo was everything we hoped it would be. The view of the beach is incredible. We used the large balcony every day, either for breakfast, for dinner, or for a final drink before bed. Master bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need if you don't want to dine out. Living Area was very nicely furnished, but we hardly used it because we spent so much time at the pool and the beach or out shopping and eating. Location is great, VERY close to everything you could want, but you still were far enough off of the main drag (98), that you felt somewhat secluded from all the touristy places. Pools were never too crowded, we always were able to get 4 chairs, at various times throughout the day. They police the pool pretty tight for bottles and drinks too close to the pool, but I'd rather they do that than let things get out of control as this is a family friendly place. There were activities for kids every day (make your own sharktooth necklace, glitter tattoos, kickball, and even a movie night at the pool with popcorn and s'mores). The staff at the activities were very nice and made sure all the kids were included and had fun. The beach was a 50 yard walk across a quiet street, and was never over crowded. There are many chairs and umbrellas if you want to rent them for $25 a day or so.

We will definitely be back, and hope that this unit is available the week we go.

This is our 2nd year in Destin, but our 1st time staying in this condo. The decor is very well done and stylish! The master bath is very roomy and nicely remodeled. We really enjoyed the ocean view from the master bedroom and the balcony access from master also. The balcony is quite large, lots of room to dine and hang out there, which we did when not at the beach. We loved this condo so much that we plan to book it next year too!

Owners response: So happy you enjoyed Sterling Shores #607! We pride ourselves in making sure this condo stays in tip top condition and are constantly thinking of ways to improve it! We've recently added a new tile floor in the master bedroom that looks like hardwood floors! The master bathroom has been updated with glass tile around the jacuzzi tub and will undergo another upgrade this fall with a new clear glass shower enclosure and glass tile! Can't wait to see the finished work! Look forward to having you back on your next trip!

Beautiful condo overlooking clear water and perfect beach! Spacious condo with everything available..including beach towels! Very private and safe - a plus for a single female traveler. Loved the location - so close to everything but so peaceful. Private cabana and a private beach. Perfect for a beach vacation or just a much needed sabatical. Crystal Waters staff great and easy to work with on details. Couldn't pick a better company to work with. Loved the furnishings too. Great look and feel and soooo comfy. Was lucky to get this booked when I did. Already planning my trip back. See you on the BEACH! Thanks Crystal Waters team for making a girl's dream come true!

Awesome place to stay! 5 STARS!

EVERYTHING about this place is perfect! The Decor, the location. The place was imaculate when we arrived. Being located between the heart of Destin and San Destin made getting to anywhere we wanted to be, in minutes. The landscaping around Sterling shores was so beautiful. And no words can describe the beach! Perfect place to stay. The pool on the beach is very nice to have access to. Not to mention the Back porch that's accross the street. The owners are very profesional and made the stay a breeze for us. My wife and I will absolutely be staying here again. Thanks Bill and Terry for everything! You guys rock!!!

Our stay was nothing short of being absolutely PERFECT!!!! The condo was GORGEOUS and the view was breathtaking. We had soooo much fun that on that the last day of our stay I became depressed that my life couldn't remain like this forever. Which got us thinking of moving there. Hopefully one day we can make it happen, however until then we plan on coming back in September along with our two children. I loved the way the condo was decorated and we had a washer and dryer at our disposal. I want whoever decorated the condo to come and decorate my house. Everything was really wonderful and I appreciate you guys sharing your home with me and my husband. Hands down the best vacation we've been on. Yes I have already recommended you to several people at my job. Can't wait to come back in September!!!

First vacation in Destin and our expectations were blown away! We weren't sure how this trip would work out with a 13 yr old, 4 yr old, and 2 yr old, but everyone had a blast. We loved the view from the balcony. It was the first thing my kids did upon waking each day. We visited the Candymaker and The Back Porch several times. The pool was a lifesaver after hot days on the beach. Couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. We will be back!

Lori G from Tuscaloosa, Alabama recommends this vacation rental
Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sterling Shores 607! The unit was spotless on arrival and the view of the ocean was amazing! We loved the bid deck and ate meals on the deck frequently. However, if you don't want to cook The Back Porch is directly across the street (we went twice!) and the Candymaker which serves breakfast and has a coffee shop counter plus candy of course is just right next door. I loved that there were options for eating out without having to get into the Destin traffic. Lastly, thanks for equipping the unit with beach toys. We forgot our boogie board but so glad you had one as I think that was our 6 year olds sons best part of the vacation was "riding the waves!"
