St. Maarten condo description

Let’s face it, when you go to the beach for vacation, where you stay is an integral part of the “success” of the vacation. In an ideal world, you’d want a great view, comfortable yet elegant furnishings and surroundings, lots of amenities, easy beach access, and NO hassles! In the real world, look no further than St. Maarten 1107!

This Platinum rated condo, directly on the beach, has one of the best views in Destin. The panorama stretches from Panama City, looking east, to Destin, looking west, with a sunset every night. The way the building was constructed in relation to the beach, the xx06 and xx07 units have the best views in the building (panoramic) because those units are closest to the beach and completely parallel to it. Look – up the site plan on the internet and see for yourself. My wife and I love a great view and a sunset and would not have purchased a condo at the beach without both!!

Because we are a rental by owner, we can offer amenities not found in many other similar rated condos, such as UPGRADED LINENS (sheets and towels) so that you won`t have to sleep on sheets that feel like sandpaper or use a towel as big as a handkerchief. (For more, see Amenities and Activities below). The kitchen is extremely well – stocked with sufficient utensils, cookware, china, glassware, and serving pieces to entertain or just fix meals for the entire “crew”.

The unit comes with a reserved underground parking space, just steps from a semi-private elevator that takes you directly to your unit (accessed only by your key). Additional guest spaces are available underground as well.

The luxury and opulence of your surroundings will wash over you as you take in all of the appointments such as marble floors, custom painting throughout, contemporary styling, and separate master suites with king size beds BOTH overlooking the Emerald waters of the Gulf.

Audio-visual enthusiasts will watch their favorite shows, movies, or sports in HD on the 42 in HDTV’s in the living room and Master Bedroom (HD programming is included). The 2nd master bedroom has a 30 in flat screen and the 3rd bedroom has a 26 in. flat screen. The LR and the 2 Masters have Blu-ray players so guests can access their VUDU or PANDORA accounts to see movies or listen to internet radio. Wi-fi is also included.

The dining area features mirrored walls that add to the spaciousness of this unit, a third bedroom offers two sets of bunk beds, full on bottom twin on top, and a lavishly decorated foyer will greet your arrival as you step off the elevator into you vacation paradise.

The Club at Silver Shells (2 minutes walk from the condo) offers the following at no additional charge: basketball and 2 tennis courts; heated indoor/outdoor pool with hot tub; separate cardio and weight rooms with state-of-the-art equipment; and separate locker rooms with steam rooms and saunas. A full service spa is available by reservation. A game room and bike rentals are also available. Ruth Chris` Steakhouse is open for business and is fabulous. They also deliver to Silver Shells condos!

But lets not forget the Beach!!!, Just steps from the lobby door your feet will touch the sugar-white sand and emerald water that has made Destin one of the best beaches in the country, year after year.
