The moment you walk through the door you will be captivated by the spectacular view. The lush landscape, the large lagoon pool and the white sandy beach will leave you spell bound. The resort atmosphere will welcome you to this vacation spot.

This nicely decorated unit has lots of added touches throughout. Neutral colors, accented with browns and blues, has a relaxed feel. The unit has a hint of a West Indies flair which provides a casual but elegant place to relax and enjoy the views. Located in the St. Croix Tower on the sixth floor (unit 604) the views are spectacular.

The ocean is seen while sitting on the couch or relaxing in the master suite. One balcony looks on the pool and beach while the second balcony looks directly onto the tennis and basketball courts. The views are NOT obstructed by other Silver Shells' Towers. All you see is sunrises, sunsets, the beach, the ocean, the lagoon pool and the landscaped green space. One could not ask for a more pleasing, relaxing setting.

The unit is designed to welcome families. There are four TV's, 3 DVD players, four VCR players and a Bose Sound System. Numerous lamps are located throughout the unit for those who love to read.

The large green space located between the lagoon pool and the beach is a great place for kids to play. They can climb on the playground equipment, throw a football or just run around in a safe area.

There is an opportunity to rent a pool-side cabana St. Maarten # 2 (MC-2 )at a discounted rate when available for guest renting this condo. The cabana is the perfect place for children to get out of the sun, watch TV or a movie, eat their lunch or take a well deserved nap. The adults can join the kids and take a break or sit just outside the cabana. Here they can enjoy the sun, the pool and the spa while keeping a watch full eye on the kids. VIEW THE SILVER SHELLS WEB SITE FOR A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THIS FABULOUS RESORT.

The unit has a great floor plan. The spacious living/dining room accommodates large groups while the two balconies provide a quieter setting. Both balconies have patio furniture so one can see the kids at the pool or watch them play basketball or tennis. The bedrooms are spaced so that everyone enjoys a good nights sleep.

About Diane

My husband and I and our three grown children enjoy every visit to Silver Shells Beach Resort and Spa. It is a wonderful resort for all ages. Someday we hope to bring grandchildren to this condo to make lasting memories for the next generation of our family.

Diane purchased this condo in 2003

Why Diane chose Destin

I fell in love with Silver Shells the moment I stepped through the condos front door. The lush greenery, the beautiful Destin water and the hugh lagoon pool made me feel like I was on a tropical island. I have never lost the excitement of stepping through the door of this condo and seeing the spectacular view. Located on the 6th floor, the views are perfect whether standing in the kitchen,, eating in the dining room or resting in the master bedroom or the living room. I visit the beach often for its beauty and tranquility and I have never been disappointed.

What makes this condo unique

Silver Shells is located in the heart of Destin just a mile from the Big Kahuna water park and 3 miles from the Commons shopping and movie complex. The Silver Sands outlet mall about 5 miles away is large and has all of your favorite stores. There area has many nice restaurants. There is always something to do.

Perfect vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is wonderful!! The floor plan offers space to be together, but also privacy and quiet if you want to take a nap! The view is incredible! The condo is located in the middle of the St. Croix building at a height low enough to hear the ocean but high enough to have a breathtaking view! We have rented this condo before, and it is ALWAYS our first choice! It is clean, well stocked, decorated lovely, has a great view, comfortable beds and furniture, and the owner also rents out a cabana located at the St. Maartens building that is definitely worth renting along with this condo! The other thing this cindo offers is an exceptional owner who genuinely cares and is amazingly accessible! We have rented other condos in the past at SiverShells, but we will always try to get Diane's condo and cabana first if is truly a pleasure to rent from her...removes any concerns about what to do if there happens to be a problem. Our vacation was wonderful...soon as we know the dates of our next vacation, we'll be calling to book this condo and also the cabana! Thanks Diane for offering such a beautiful vacation condo!

Great location and very clean condo

  • 3 of 5

This resort is top notch and we love it there!!! It's beautiful. You have perfect views of the pool and gulf from the balcony. We were without internet for a few days, so my husband had to go buy a new router to get the internet working again. The jets in the master bath didn't work and the toilet seat in the front bathroom was broke. We love silver shells, just don't know if I would stay in this particular unit again.

Owner's Response: Tiffany, I wish you had contacted me personally if my management company did not respond to your lack of internet access. I expect them to respond quickly however if they had not, I would have contacted them directly to get the internet back up and running. I would love to try to accommodate your family in the future and would work with you on a discount to see if you would allow me the opportunity to work with your family for another vacation. I will follow up with my management company to see why your concerns were not addressed in a timely manner. I contacted my management company immediately after reading your review to see what happened with the internet. My management company tells me that you are now satisfied as they were willng at my direction to give you a discount on your stay to make up for your inconvenience.
