Description

This newly furnished three-bedroom vacation rental at Sterling Shores in Destin can sleep up to nine fortunate beachgoers. The resort features incredible amenities and has a wonderful location in the heart of everything that dazzling Destin has to offer.

This amenity-filled tropical paradise is aptly named since it is very close to the shimmering "sterling shores" that overlook the glorious waters of the jeweled gulf. A gulf-front pool sits alongside the convenient private beach access.  Here a poolside Bar & Grill provides savory snacks, sandwiches, frozen tropical drinks, cold beer, and wine.  Directly in front of the complex is an additional swimming pool that resembles a vast lagoon with five curvy sides.  Kids and adults alike can enjoy a refreshing waterfall in part of the pool that cascades off the sides of a giant mushroom sculpture. It is lushly adorned with towering palm trees all around a spacious patio that warmly beckons guests to enjoy some leisurely lounging under the sun.  Grills are provided nearby for cookouts. One of the pools is heated during the cooler times of the year, and there is also a fitness center on-site.

The new furnishings in Sterling Shores 203 provide a sleek, bright contemporary look with inviting colors. A tan leather couch provides a queen-sized sleeper sofa and is flanked by a matching love seat. A decorative white rug has two large azure-colored Starfish patterns, and a row of wall décor adds to the coastal charm. This comfortable seating ensemble faces a wall-mounted TV and sliding glass doors that frame the sensational scenery outdoors. A balcony with seating for drinking and snacking overlooks the lush landscaping from above the palm treetops. The dining area within includes six high backed wicker chairs that surround a bamboo-base glass-topped table for charmed dining. Four fashionable Vintage Modern square-topped stools sit beside a mottled granite bar facing the kitchen, which features brushed stainless steel appliances.

The Master Bedroom has elegant hardwood furnishings, a king-sized bed, direct balcony access along with a luxury en suite bath with a walk-in shower. The handsome Guest Bedroom has luxurious dark chocolate-colored furnishings, a queen-sized bed, and access to a full hall bath. A full/twin bunk provides additional sleeping for three guests.

This incredibly convenient Destin locale is minutes away from a wide variety of delightful diversions. Popular restaurants nearby include The Back Porch, Joe's Crab Shack, Jim N Nicks Barbeque, and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive reduced rates nearby at the Big Kahuna's Waterpark with lots of sparkling fun, a lush tropical miniature golf course, and thrill rides. The bustling Destin Marina, which is home to North America's largest private charter fishing fleet, is also close by.  Here LDV provides our guests discounts for watercraft and pontoon boats so that you may join the pleasurable parties at Crab Island.  

Additional complimentary discounts are also provided to Ocean Reef Resorts guests for fishing charters, dolphin cruises, and even a pirate ship adventure! HarborWalk Village at the marina features an abundance of excellent waterfront restaurants, lively bars, specialty shops, seasonal festivals, free concerts and fireworks throughout the summer as well as on special holidays.

Phenomenal
Wonderful vacation for our Family of Four Plus Grandma! Balcony Breeze was great for early morning coffee or late evening glass of wine. Kitchen had everything we needed. Gated pool and minutes walk to the beach, Back Porch restaurant, or The Candy Store. One very minor issue wouldn’t stop me from booking again the master bedroom bed needs to be replaced; head of bed is lower than foot. My family really enjoyed their vacation!
Yvette G from Birmingham - Stayed May 2022
Thank you for sharing your feedback - and for being our guests here at Sterling Shores. So descriptive! Also, thanks for bringing the master bed to our attention. It's a brand new mattress - but it turns out we needed to add a few support slats. When you are ready to come back - it'll be ready for you!
