Silver Shells condo description

Can't ask for any more than this! Gorgeous sunsets, city lights, beach, ocean and bay views are all surrounding this charming penthouse.

Enjoy this beautiful Penthouse in Silver Shells Resort in the heart of Destin, Florida. Warm with Southern Charm, the condo patiently awaits your arrival. The pineapple motif used in every room symbolizes its true meaning of WELCOME to every one who enters. The comfort, character, and spaciousness of this 2 story (2998 square feet) penthouse will let you escape the work life and gently warm you to the Atlantic Breezes. Thoughtfully inspired decorations and everything carefully handmade by the owner. Enjoy coffee, hot tea and danish (from across the road) on either terrace and watch the bay, ocean, and city flow around you. Hear the ocean, and watch the dolphins from the oversized chaise lounges inside and out or maybe just cuddle in the sun with that book you have been meaning to read. Three bedrooms have ocean and bay views as well as the kitchen, dining room, and great room and all exit to the terraces. Enjoy a touch of whimsy in your bedroom or maybe a little statelier is your thing. The choice is yours.

Work as little as you want, but wireless internet is at your fingertips if you desire and are totally unable to do without it. Fenced property and security for your family is essential, 5 restaurants within walking distance and Ruth Chris Steakhouse will deliver right to your door. Located next door to Henderson Beach State park with walking trails, an on site aerobic center, and on site weight room will surely suffix anyone's need to exercise. Of course there is always the beach, volleyball, basketball, and indoor heated pool and outdoor lagoon size swimming pool. If that doesn't do it then the spa will have to do, with massages, pedicures, and manicures for men and women or maybe even try a new hair do. All these things should relax, rejuvenate, and refresh your mind and body. Or why not just do nothing, have your food delivered to your beach chair, and then snooze the afternoon away on the sandy beaches.

The rich, dark wood floors and furnishings along with the king sized bed encompass luxury with a separate sitting area for TV or reading. The richness of the golds, reds, greens, and pineapples are used throughout the decor of the condo. For those of all ages an ocean blue room with 3 built in day beds, planes above you and ships beside you give you the feeling of being on the water while inside in your own private area.

Come be with us and enjoy the warmth and comfort that will inspire you and make you feel at ease. King beds in master and downstairs, queen downstairs, and 3 twins upstairs--everyone (sleeps 9) has a bed. No sleeper sofas. Reserved underground parking garage. High Chair and Pack-n-Play provided upon request.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              Why the Owner Chose Silver Shells:
              My family had vacationed in Destin for many years and after the Silver Shells Resort was built we began staying there. My teenagers loved it and the convince of the area and what it had to offer. Having teenage sons who were into sports they loved the tennis courts, basketball court, and the work-out rooms. The girls in my family all loved the indoor heated pool, the spa, and the cabanas located next to the pool area. Silver Shells is located next to Henderson Beach State Park and nothing can be built on that property. Great views.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The lagoon pool is one of our favorites. There is plenty of room for you to lounge by the pool without being on top of someone else. There are plenty of chaise lounges for everyone. The cabanas by the lagoon pool offer everyone exceptional pool time from the young to the old. The cabana is located poolside and they have a bathroom, t.v., microwave, dining table and chairs. A great place for a break from the sun or for a child to nap and you be able to sit out by the pool. The tiki bar has wonderful food and it serves all day long. They will also deliver right to your chair. Secured gate and property with guards on duty 24/7. Silver Shells provides a family oriented vacation and strives to cater to families. Our 2/story penthouse is a wonderful condo to vacation with all your family. The 2 bedrooms, 2 baths downstairs allows some privacy for those upstairs with the 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. The condo sleeps 9-10 in beds and with the 2 balconies everyone can enjoy time in the afternoons watching the sun go down with the great views to the West.
