When choosing your next beach vacation destination, nothing beats the beautiful white sand beaches, emerald green waters, and abundant activities Destin, Florida has to offer. Destin’s harbor district is located at the intersection of the Choctawhatchee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. This makes Downtown Destin an ideal location for boating activities of all sorts. Since so many boats travel into the Destin harbor after a day of fishing, you can expect our dining establishments to have the freshest Gulf seafood possible. Destin’s harbor district offers all sorts of activities from amusement parks, a water park, boating, fine dining, and of course the beautiful beaches and magnificent views that make this area spectacular.
If the children or the adult in all of us are looking for a place to be entertained for the day, downtown Destin offers two wonderful amusement parks. Big Kahunas water-park is a great place to go cool down for the day. If you tire of the water-park, they also have a putt putt course, and two go-cart tracks. Right down the street from Big Kahunas is The Track amusement park. The Track offers several go-cart tracks, an arcade, bungee jumping, bumper boats, and another putt putt golf course for the whole family to enjoy.
Destin harbor is flooded with the freshest Gulf seafood which makes finding that perfect dining spot a piece of cake. The restaurants in downtown Destin pride themselves on using the best Gulf seafood that might have been pulled out of the water that day. You are also a short drive from several popular chain restaurants seen throughout the country. If you aren’t sure where to eat, take a leisurely stroll down the harbor walk. You can view all the boats bringing in their fresh catches while trying to spot that perfect dining location for you.
St. Croix is in the center building of the Silver Shells resort and has a direct view of the beach over the pool deck.
Unit 304 features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The master suite has a king bedroom, the guest bedroom has a king bed and there are two queen beds in the 3rd bedroom.

The condo itself needs a complete renovation.
Upon arrival, our condo was filthy. The floors were sandy and had not been cleaned. The furniture was dirty and stained. There was a hole in the outdoor table, the sliding door off of the living area would not lock properly, and there was a leak in the 2nd bathroom. We called the management company and they did address the floors and had the furniture steam-cleaned. Unfortunately, the upholstery was so stained and dated, it didn't improve much. The outdoor amenities are nice, which helped our experience. Would we stay in this condo again? Absolutely not. For the price, it should be clean and comfortable.
This condo was such a perfect space for my family. We had 5 adults and three children and we all fit very well. The location was close to everything!
Thank you for your review, we are glad to hear how much you enjoyed your recent stay at Silver Shells! We hope your travels bring you back our way soon!
This condo is just okay.
Great location. This property has so much potential. A deep clean, fresh paint, and reupholstered living area furniture would make this a five star property. The baseboards were dusty, the tile floors turned bare feet black, and there was mold in the master shower. The rubber seal around the main entrance door was falling off. The patio doors were secured locked by a plastic and a wooden tube along the track. A remote for the fan/light in the second bedroom didn't work so they would not turn on or off at the same time. The AC required being left on 72 which was a little too warm for our comfort. This review is for the condo, but I would give the ocean reef management group five stars. They were quick to have any issues resolved.
Morgan, first of all thank you so much for staying with us. I'm sorry to hear that the property needed some TLC and that prevented a higher rated review. Luckily, this is the time of year that we start deep cleans as well as repairs. In regards to the AC; the reason that we ask guests at all properties not to go below 72 is due to the salt water air's effect on the AC units. It will actually cause the unit to freeze up which would leave you with no cool air at all. We appreciate you abiding by that during your stay and are sorry that it wasn't as comfortable as you would have liked. We have taken the appropriate steps to remedy all of the issues that you listed. We hope to see you back again next year!
