                My family goes to Destin every year and this was one of the most relaxing trips we have taken. The condo is furnished with everything you could possibly need and I love the jacuzzi tub in the Master. It is in the perfect location for an exceptional view and convenient parking. The owners communication is excellent and they provide all of the needed instructions for a great vacation experience.

                Owner response: It is always a pleasure to hear from our guests that they have enjoyed their stay in Destin and in our condo. We furnish the condo so that it is both very attractive and functional for a visit away from home. Yes, “It is in the perfect location for an exceptional view”. Our communications are intended to make your visit as stress free as possible to allow, as you said, a great relaxing vacation experience. We hope you will return and stay with us when you return to Destin.

                The title says it all. We've stayed in Destin before and booked through an agency, but we had a much different (better) experience this time! The owners are so organized and efficient, that it makes the vacation so easy, and gave us so much piece of mind that we could just RELAX and enjoy our vacation! The welcome packet we received prior to vacation gave us every piece of info we needed, and it was so nice to just drive to the condo and go right in! No checking in at a front desk!! The owners provided everything we needed (they even left a box of replacement light bulbs in the closet (just in case), and also left instructions on the dvd players to make sure you don't fumble around with remote controls and avoid frustration - this was helpful as we have youngsters that like watching movies when we're at home - so mom and dad can catch a quick afternoon nap!). And did I mention the condo itself? Very comfortable, clean, and what a view! Silver Shells itself also has ample amenities. The pool is incredible, the Jacuzzi tub, and a really cool tikki bar between the pool and beach. Also our kids liked to play on the playground on the way back from the beach back to the condo (in a well kept, cool, grassy area). Our oldest son is a basketball player, so we even shot a few hoops one morning at the basketball court! So if you're on the fence about where to rent...get off....Rent this condo!

                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing.

                Owner response: Thank you so much for staying with us and for your glowing review. The benefits of an owner being organized works both ways, for the benefit of the guest, but it also makes it so much better for the owner. When the system makes it easy for the guest it is much easier for all concerned. The guest knows what to expect so there are no surprises. Some surprises we like, but others not so much. It takes a lot of time and experience to work out a system that makes it easy for the guest (and the owner). Having owned several properties in Destin as Original Owners we know our properties well and we also know Destin well. Having been with several Management Companies over the years we know the strengths and weaknesses of their systems: their Good and their Bad. Being able to implement our own system incorporating the good and avoiding the bad gives us an advantage that helps our guest have an easier more enjoyable vacation. As with any system an occasional tweak may be needed from time to time. It is a lot easier for us to do this than it is with any management company. We welcome you back to stay with us on your next visit to Destin and thanks again for this review. Don and Angie

                We just returned from one of the most relaxing vacations we have had in years. The condo was lovely...most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. Everything was provided by the accommodating owners, who were extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this condo to the discerning vacationer. My 2 year old grandaughter loved the playground, pool and especially the beach. Everything was just perfect. We look forward to returning next year.

                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing, girls getaway.

                Owner response: Thanks again for staying with us. The main reasons for a vacation are to get away, connect with your family, and to relax. We try to make it easy for this to happen. Destin is a Vacation Paradise and Silver Shells with all the amenities adds so much enjoyment. When the condo provides a view of the beach from every room except the bathrooms and a breathtaking view from the balcony what could be better? What can be better is coming back and knowing what awaits you when you do. We love our visits here! We welcome you back next year!

                This condo was awesome! Thank you for allowing us to rent your unit! We stay in Destin a couple of times a year and have rented dozens of units. This is in the 'top 3' list for sure! It is perfect for 2 couples because of the bedroom / bath set up, but great for a family, as well. The size of the condo is perfect and the view from your condo and bedrooms is wonderful. The owners could not be any more helpful and kind - if they tried! The location and amenties are super. We will be back and thank you again to the owners !

                Owner response: Thank you for being our guest in our Silver Shells St. Croix 505 and for your excellent review. We take pride in our condos and very much appreciate when our guests let us know they enjoyed their visit. Thank you for your kind words. As you said, the floorplan allows a fantastic view from all the rooms; living area, kitchen and both bedrooms. Silver Shells in addition to being directly on the beach has a large lagoon pool, a playground for the kids, a full selection of exercise equipment and it is located near many restaurants, shopping and several family recreation centers. We welcome you back on future visits to Destin.

                We recently spent a week in Desting and stayed in this unit. The Silver Shells resort is beautifully maintained and so very clean. We had a wonderful stay in Destin and would come back again. The condo was perfect for our family of 5 with everything we needed for our stay. The beaches were beautiful and we lucky enough to not encounter one jelly fish. If you are looking for a family friendly reasonably priced location with everything you need - this is it!

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: We LOVE Destin...we are Angie and Don Bennett and currently live north of Atlanta. We look forward to moving to Florida someday, but until then we visit whenever we can. Don lived in the Destin area in 1960 and we both vacationed in the area for many years until our first condo was reserved pre-construction in 1994. Since then our love of the area compelled us to invest in additional properties. Don is very active in the Destin area and is the founder of 'Community Association Presidents of the Emerald Coast' (CAPEC), an organization striving to make the Destin area even better for property owners and their guests. Don is also a member of Citizens for Healthy Beaches working to make the world's best beach even better.

              Why the Owner Chose St. Croix:
              With the advantage of having spent considerable time in the Destin area over many years we recognize certain areas and properties that have exceptional advantages. The Silver Shells beach is where Don swam many times before Silver Shells was built. Our love for this beach, next door to Henderson State Park, prompted us to reserve units in the proposed property before Silver Shells. When ownership changed, these reservations converted over to Silver Shells St Croix, a Beachfront building. We were second in line to choose units and St Croix 505 and 602 were our choice. We had learned that the fifth and sixth floors are high enough to give a great view, but not so high that you lose connectivity with what is below. Silver Shells has become the Premier Resort in Destin.
