Sterling Shores

Rated Excellent on FlipKey

4.6 average rating
based on 6,988 reviews

Residing in the center of it all, the very heart of Destin, are the luxury vacation condos of Sterling Shores. The bar has been set high for other beach condominiums by all that Sterling Shores offers. Lush tropical landscaping with winding walkways shaded by palms connects different areas of the resort. You immediately get the feeling that you’ve found paradise. 

Two of the best amenities are the pools- one at a private Sterling Shores beach club right on the beach with shady arbors, a bathhouse and a raised sun deck with spectacular Gulf views and another 4,300 sq ft lagoon style pool with rock features, a waterfall and plenty of umbrellas and lounge chairs within the complex.

Families love the location right across the street from the Back Porch beach bar and grill. With a kids’ playground, a beach bar and water sports- you never have to get in the car to have a great beach vacation! 

Each vacation rental is fully equipped with all the niceties of home from a fully stocked kitchen to laundry facilities and a few extras like a 24 hour fitness center on site and a 42 seat surround sound theatre.

Amazing condo!!!

  5 of 5 stars

We stayed here in Oct 2017 with our 4 children ages 5, 9, 13, and 15. It was absolutely perfect! The beds were very comfortable. We would suggest new bunk beds as they were very wobbly and there’s not much space to sit up. We loved the location and honestly didn’t mind the beach being across the 2 lane road at all. The main pool was very chilly but my kids loved the heated pool. We wish there would have been beach chairs included in the stay! We ended up running down to the Walmart for some (not a big deal but should be noted for renters) The week was truly incredible and so laid back! We definitely felt at home here and will absolutely rent this unit again! Thank you so much for family memories we will cherish for a lifetime!!!


Perfect For Large Or Multi-Generational Families

  4 of 5 stars

This was our first visit to Destin as well as our first time staying at a Newman-Dailey property. As some background on us, my husband and I actually prefer to rent private residences rather than go to resorts and have done so in many parts of the world. This was our first vacation taking our oldest son and his family. That meant our party consisted of 4 adults and 3 small children ages 1,4, & 7. It was the floor plan of 819 that first attracted us. We liked the idea of 2 master suites, a room for the children and separate bathrooms for each bedroom. We were also drawn by the location, photos of the view, and the decor of the condo. I can tell you the place didn't disappoint! We were there for a week and never felt crowded! There was room for everyone to stretch out and a great laundry room behind a kitchen that was well-appointed. The photos didn't lie and the property was found to look just as we anticipated. Unfamiliar with Destin, we received a great surprise when we discovered how close we were to all we wanted to see on this trip. The beach was the perfect and an incredible first introduction for our grands to the ocean and the pool was super as well with its great kid's area. We also enjoyed using the grill to cook up some of the fresh catch from one of our fishing excursions. As for Newman-Daily, the property management company for this condo, this was our first experience with them as well. We were scheduled to arrive for our vacation just days after Hurricane Irma. Understandably, the days leading up to our trip were nervous ones. I contacted the Newman-Daily office several times for updates and guidance as to what to do in event the hurricane did strike Destin. They were very friendly, patient, and helpful. I was also appreciative of their flexability and contigency arrangements for our late arrival after their usual business hours. I do at this time want to comment on the application Newman-Daily offers its guests that is downloadable to i-phones and android platform phones. That thing is awesome! The amount of info we were able to obtain and enjoy was very convenient and impressive! It not only provides guests with information on the property but also the surrounding attractions, events and restaurants! It also had information about the ND discount program for discounts on certain attractions and restaurants for ND guests! I really can't say enough good things about the app! However, there were a couple of hiccups that unfortunately prevent me from giving 5 stars instead of 4 (if I could make the stars do 4.5 that would be more accurate). The first issue was we were provided old codes for access to parking and the gates on the grounds. It was my daughter-in-law who suffered from this error as she went out to get groceries, etc. and initially couldn't get back through the security gate to park! My son had to go down and it didn't take long to find someone over the phone to give us the updated codes, which I passed onto Newman-Daily. Another point of mild annoyance (might be major for others) for us is we had read in the literature we were supposed to have a parking spot with the condo, yet we never received further good information on this or access. We did have some sort of parking pass form in our check-in packet we picked up at the Newman-Daily office. It had instructions to give the form to the guard at the gate to the property parking lot, but after several attempts to find such a guard during daylight hours (we were too busy in the evenings) we gave up and never obtained access to any such spot we suspect was in the parking garage itself. Since we did have a baby in our party, having one car that wasn't out in the sun when we needed it would have been nice but we made due with parking our vehicles in the lot. Others who find that space of import may need to prepare to be more persistent. My other concern was that the sliding glass door in the living room to the balcony didn't have a working lock. Understandably this was concerning with small curious children on the 8th story. We used one of the brooms we found in the closet to block the door so it couldn't be opened and I did report it so it could be repaired after we left. I also let Newman Daily know about that flowered chair you see by the sliding door in the above picture. As lovely as this room was, someone at some time had allowed their dog or cat to absolutely shred the arm rest and since I found it hard to believe anyone would just continue to leave the chair in the condo if it was known to be damaged (that would be tacky), I worried that it had never been reported and we might find ourselves blamed for it (we weren't). What was nice, is I could use the app to report such issues to ND instead of calling them in when there was really nothing to be done until we checked out. I can't say enough about our accommodations and would recommend this property without reservation to others. I also enjoyed my experience with Newman-Daily and might even choose one of their properties over another where I wasn't familiar with the property management company. Rarely are vacations perfect but thanks to our accommodations and Newman-Daily, this one was most definitly near perfect!


Very Nice!!

  5 of 5 stars

I would definitely stay here again. Extremely CLEAN when we entered the unit. Plenty of room and the A/C was as cold as you wanted it. I have no complaints at all and will give this one 5 stars.


  4 of 5 stars

Condo was roomy, clean, and worked great for our family. We were given the wrong code to our room and had to call the after hours number, but once we received the correct codes our stay was great.


5 STARS for sure.

  5 of 5 stars

This was by far the best condo we have stayed at in the Sterling Shores condo. We have stayed there about 15 times. My only complaint just being picky is that I wished that there was a fold out couch in the unit. I would definitely stay here again.


Fantastic Week!

  5 of 5 stars

My family and I had a great time at Sterling Shores 819. The condo had everything we could ask for and plenty of room for everybody to be comfortable. Not only were we close to restaurants and attractions....most within easy walking distance, but you couldn't beat the fantastic view of the gulf. We had a great week and look forward to coming back soon!

We had an absolutely amazing time. The view was amazing from the balcony. The condo was very clean and nicely decorated. The double master suites provided extra privacy for the other couple that joined us. It was very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay.


Great vacation

  5 of 5 stars

This condo was very spacious and accommodated us well. We loved the 2 master suites so that each couple could have privacy and the kids loved the bunk room. The view was great! We loved the extra amenities from the rental company for the kids. It provided tickets to the track, water park tickets, and movie rentals.


Very nice condo with great view.

  4 of 5 stars

Condo was very large and furnished nicely. Large balcony and great view of pool and gulf. We enjoyed our stay and would consider this unit again.


Location! Location! Location! Was great!

  5 of 5 stars

The only complaint I had was I had to park my boat off property. No big deal except when I needed to prep rod and reels or go get the boat I had to walk always. With that being said, this unit we stayed in was the best unit in all out 17 years going to Destin! Corner balcony with very nice beds and furniture. Great pool for the kids and only a hop jump and a skip from the beach. I can not wait to return to Srerling and stay in the same unit.
