Silver Shells St. Maarten Condo ~ Breathtaking Views & Indoor Pool
average rating of 3.4 based on 5 reviews

Great view, beds very comfortable, beach and pool wonderfully close.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the condo. However I called Southern rental about a curtain that was broke and a screen that needed fixed on the day we arrived and it was not fixed when we left. Furniture starting to show wear. Overall it was a very quiet and pleasant place to stay. I recommend it.

Many broken or failing appliances. Old itchy “bedspreads”, only 2 key fobs for a 3 BR is not enough.

Very disappointed in This rental. Very 1st day Kitchen sink stopped up on disposal side. Took 2 days for repairman to come. Vent hood on stove does not work—-which was a big stink when cooking for 8. Washing machine sounds like a jet taking off and smells like a sewer. Repairman looked at it and said he was reporting it needed to be replaced by owner. Queen bedroom mattress was a complete brick!!! And the bathtub for that bedroom held at least 2 inches of water when showering. Master Bath toilet stopped up many times during the week. My husband had to buy a plunger!!! The curtains in the Master had one section down and we found it in the closet. Had to try to hang it with 3 clips we found. The back door to the unit was open when we arrived and would not close. Repairman had to hammer the plate to get the door to shut so we could lock it.

2 Key fobs for this unit is not enough especially because you need a key fob to get to the beach and to get through the gate returning from beach. This was a big aggravation with 8 people!

Noticed that a fire extinguisher has been used in the fuse box!!! Lots of debris from the extinguisher was still there—-making us question the integrity of the fuse box.

Furniture is old, master bedroom headboard is loose and noisy when you turn over. Screen was broken on twin bedroom door.

Beach view was beautiful but this Condo was a true disappointment I’m sorry to say.

Outstanding place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great, the overall property was really nice. We loved the proximity to the beach, pool and tiki bar. Our top floor unit was very spacious. The negatives are that most of the furniture is in well need of replacing especially for the price you pay to rent this until during peak season. The patio furniture was falling apart to the point you couldn’t sit in a couple of the chairs. A few minor maintenance repairs to the toilet and cabinets and the needed furniture upgrade would have warranted a 5 star review in my opinion. We definitely would rent in this building again.

This is the first time I have ever reviewed anything good or bad but I was so disappointed in this rental that I felt I needed too. I was very disappointed in our stay at this condo. On the day we checked in they provided us with only one key to the room. We had a party of 8 and this made is very inconvenient and also stressful because at this property you need key for everything, for the room, elevator, parking garage, access to and from the beach, etc. Although I appreciate the security, if you don't have enough keys your are trapped until someone with a key can come and get you. After calling the rental company they did provide us one more key but that still was not enough. We asked other guests staying at Silver Shells how many keys they received and were told they received 5 keys.

When we got to the condo on the first day my daughter sat in a bar stool and it completely crumbled under her. I can not believe that someone knowing the bar stool was broke would put it back to be used knowing someone would sit in it. The washing machine was so loud that it sounded like a train was coming through the condo. The pull out mattress was a joke. No one could sleep on it because so bad. Basically you were sleeping on springs. But with all the complaints about the condo by far the worst thing was being only provided 2 keys. It was not relaxing vacation at all. Also it would have been helpful if the people working at the rental office had some knowledge of the properties they rent. They couldn't answer

questions that we had regarding our condo or parking etc, because they had never seen the property and were not familiar with it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the feedback regarding your stay. We have requested additional keys from the HOA to better accommodate our guests and will also work with the owner to replace furniture and appliances needed. We appreciate that you took the time to make us aware of these issues. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience the inadequate amount of keys had caused your party but hope that you will stay with us again in the future.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect for everything Destin has to offer. The condo is great, with a view you can not get enough of! The semi private elevator is a big plus. Washing machine needs replacing or repair, and as in most places the kitchen cookware was cheap quality. The internet connection worked perfectly! The lay-out of the condo is very good and it is spacious and with nice decor. I will book this place again!
