Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are Geneva and Frank Barnhill. We have been married 49 years, and live in Dunwoody, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. We have owned condos in Destin for more than 32 years, and at Silver Shells since 2003. Our entire family, our children and grandchildren love Destin and Silver Shells. Geneva and I enjoy the Relaxation, Walks on the Beach, the Spa, Shopping, Golf, great Restaurants and our family loves the Beach, Pool and the many things to do at Silver Shells and in Destin. We call it our HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

Why the Owner Chose St. Croix:
We visited Destin about 32 years ago and discovered it's beautiful beach, friendly people and many wonderful restaurants. In 2003 we stopped at Silver Shells for lunch, took one look at the view from our 8th floor condo, and bought it immediately. Silver Shells is an Upscale, Gated, Family oriented Beach Resort. It was the best family decision we have ever made.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
For us it is the Rest, Relaxation, walking on the beautiful beach, Spa, Fitness Center and the many wonderful restaurants we have discovered in Destin. We also enjoy breakfast, lunch and cocktails with a spectacular view from our balcony. Our children and grandchildren love the beach, huge pool, activities for kids and the many things to do at Silver Shells and in Destin.
