Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Silver Shells Resort is Destin’s premier vacation location directly on the Gulf of Mexico and close to all the other vacation destinations and activities in Destin. The St. Croix building presides at the center of this complex and offers an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico, white sand, and emerald waters that cannot be adequately described. You will be awestruck by the view from the 14th floor, directly below the penthouse level. Dining on the balcony for breakfast, lunch or dinner is accompanied by speakers connected to the stereo system tuner. You can enjoy your favorite CD or radio station while basking in the view of white sand and emerald waters. Bring your binoculars to watch the dolphins and boats as they navigate the crystal blue waters.

Each room has ceiling to floor sliding glass doors for easy access to the balcony. New for 2010 are light blocking drapes in each bedroom. Decorated with ease of living in mind, each room reflects a slightly different tropical theme. Colors are bright and cheerful so the day’s activities are extended into the evening hours.

The living room has, new in 2014, a wall mounted flat screen HDTV, with DVD and VHS capacity. The tuner is connected to speakers throughout the unit so all rooms can receive audio. Each room has individual controls, allowing volume setting to be personalized.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with a wall mounted TV/VHS and a DVD player so viewing from bed is comfortable. The walk in closet allows for ample storage. The master bath has Jacuzzi bath and a separate tiled shower. Newly added in 2010 are sun blocking drapes in both bedrooms.

Sleeping arrangements are completed with a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and twin beds in the Gulf front bedroom. The guest room also has a wall mounted TV/VHS and a DVD player. The guest bath has a large tiled shower and full sized washer and dryer.

Your assigned parking space is next to the elevator entrance in the underground garage. A definite plus when the summer sun is in its fullest glory.

Poolside you will find a wading pool and a playground for the toddlers in your group. Pool furniture is on a first come, first serve basis and cannot be reserved - but the cabana is your special luxury for your private use while our guests. You can escape the heat of the day or store your drinks, snacks, or meals without having to run up to the condo or carry a cooler down. These are the envy of all poolside.

The cabana is air conditioned and has a microwave, TV with DVD player, a refrigerator, a half bath, and a futon couch. The table and chairs can be moved outdoors or left inside for your poolside convenience.

Look carefully at the pictures - all that's missing is YOU!

Why Michele Abernathy chose Florida North West

I have lived around the Destin Emerald Beach area since 1956. Traveling with my military family gave me exposure to many vacation destinations around the world - none compare to Destin for activities, food, and attractions. My desire is for your family to experience the unparalleled amenities of the Destin area and to begin your family memories here.

What makes this condo unique

St. Croix at Silver Shells is a private resort. The atmosphere rivals any 'off shore' resort with the added convenience of still being in the States. We enjoy the pool and cabana to make the most of our vacation time with the least hassle. Nearby restaurants are icing on the cake since we can walk to several including Ruth's Chris right on the property.

Fantastic Stay in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Silver Springs resort in Destin. Just a fantastic place. Close to restaurants, shopping, whatever you need. The pool was great and never had a problem getting chairs as they have plenty. The beach area was never overly crowded compared to some of the surrounding resorts and the sand is incredible. The cabana was a huge bonus as we simply put our food and drink for the day in there and never had to go back to the room until we were done at the beach/pool for the day. Our #1405 unit was great as well. The view from the deck is like that on a postcard. The unit was plenty big and had all of the amenities you would ever need. Owner was very responsive to any questions we had as well. Would highly recommend staying there.

Wonderful in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Silver Shells Resort, Unit C1405, and had a great time. We didn't want to leave! The view from the balcony and both the bedrooms was unbelievable, the pictures don't even do it justice! From the location of the parking space, to the location of the elevator, to the location of the unit, to the location of the included poolside cabana, we couldn't have asked for more. The condo was spotless and very well stocked. The owner was so easy to contact and very responsive to any questions we had.

The location of Silver Shells Resort was ideal. It was in a relatively uncrowded area of the beach. We walked west and the beaches were so crowded in comparison. We did not rent chairs or umbrellas. The rentals pretty much lined the beach in front of the resort, and private umbrellas are not allowed on Silver Shells beach for liability purposes, but you can have your own chairs. We just went down to where the Henderson Park joins the Silver Shells property and set up our chairs and umbrella. This was ideal because it was not crowded here at all!

We can't wait to go back, and would definitely stay in C1405 again!

Perfect Family Friendly Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent more time at the pool since the cabana is included in our rental. Everything was close and we could go from pool to Gulf without having to go upstairs to get anything. Our hostess was available and informed. The condo is well supplied and clean.
