"I booked last minute but knew the complex and it's facilities from last years trip. I am so glad I chose Silver Shells again and rented from Jim this time. His unit in the st Lucia building was beautiful,clean and well equipped. The view was great! You could see the Gulf, the city strip and the airport landing. No complaints! Why pay more for a unit in the St.Maarten building when this condo had a great gulf view too! It's true the pool and beach area is a bit of a walk around the back but Jim provided a trolley cart with 4 beach chairs and umbrella making the trip manageable. I am talking a 2 minute walk people! Not to mention St Lucia has it's own private hot tub and pool so you could just take the elevator down and stay close to the building if you preferred for those night swims. The location is perfect. Everything a short drive away including Walmart, the track ( go-carting \mini golf) , and restaurants. We also enjoyed getting frozen yogurt and treats at the Candy shop located at the public beach entrance. I would definitely rent this unit again. Free wi-fi, spacious unit, reasonable rates and 5* accommodation made this rental amazing!"

"My family and I just spent 8 days here and the pictures did not do it justice. The kids loved the big pool that is shared by each building and the pool that was for St Lucia building only. Love the Sand Bar by the beach. Perfect for lunch when you don't feel like going back up to the condo. Great food and drinks! The Pattens are extremly nice and very easy to work with. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!"

"We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. We had stayed at Gulfgate before, but this was our first time in this unit, and it was great. Love the corner location with views out the side windows down the beach! Plenty of room and very clean. Everything we needed was provided in the kitchen. Fantastic view from the huge balcony, and the high table and stools were perfect for eating the dinner we picked up from The Back Porch (just steps away on the beach) while watching the sunset. Also loved having the lounge chairs out there. The beach toys and chairs were a nice extra, as were the Bluray DVD player, HDTV, and the movies available. Liked having the two queens in the second bedroom, and my son loved the big jacuzzi tub! The owner was extremely nice and accommodating; we've never had a personal visit from a condo owner to show us what we needed to know before. We were able to check in early, which was wonderful. Also loved having the extra keys and the remote control for the auto gate! Would definitely recommend this unit and would stay here again!"
