Beautiful but needs some updates

  • 2 of 5

This condo has views of the beach but is not beach front. The beds are uncomfortable and the carpet is old and dirty. It's a beautiful property but could use some updates.

Needs updates!!!

  • 3 of 5

The only reason I am giving this three stars is because the furniture and carpet in this unit are very old and dirty. This unit desperately needs new furniture! The arms on the chairs are extremely worn and the furniture overall is just old and outdated. The carpet is disgusting. Cleaning will not help, must be removed or replaced!

The view from unit is great! It's a shame, because this unit would get 5 stars from me if the changes were made. I stayed in a different unit last year( same building) and cost was less and interior was top notch!

Great vacation with the family!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful week in this condo. My kids loved the pool, I loved the spa and my husband loved how close the beach was. We all loved the wonderful views and we will all look back on our time here with so much happiness!

Spring Break Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This is overall a great condo in an excellent location. Views of the Gulf and strip. Very spacious with excellent ammenties. Like other reviewers, I would suggest the carpet be replaced and inspected. There were some drawers that were in operable and dents in the walls but nothing big enough to prevent me from staying there again. Management was very friendly and responsive. Great for multi families. Will return.

Nice condo for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and we had a splendid time! The condo was bigger than what we needed, but we just love Silver Shells so much. We were able to enjoy a great dinner at Ruth's Chris, which is only a short walk away! The sunsets in February are the most beautiful and we watched them from our huge balcony. It was so relaxing. We would recommend this condo to families as well as couples.

Great Resort but Condo was Dirty

  • 3 of 5

This condo is located with an excellent view of the Destin strip. Also, you have a view of the pool from the dining area and can see the gulf. Our stay was May 9 - 16, 2015. The condo needs to be updated as the carpet, furniture and drapes all had stains on them. The stains looked to have been there a while too. Also, the TV in the living room is an old tube TV; however, we did not spend much time watching TV as their is so much close to do. Upon arrival, the toilet in the master bedroom would not flush. Called Beach Escapes and they sent someone over to fix it within a couple of hours. However, the toilet still continued to rock back and forth and you had to hold the handle down to get it to fully flush. A pipe in the bathroom of guest bedroom with two beds had a leak in it and had been that way for a while as there was mold and mildew underneath the sink. Again, called Beach Escapes and they sent someone to fix & clean the mold. The silverware had food caked on it so we soaked all that and got it cleaned. The shower in the other guest bedroom was very dirty as my 80 year old Mom cleaned it. The paper towels were black when you wiped all the dirt out. Also, there was trash behind the armoire in that room. Beach Escapes did advise they fired the cleaning crew. One other item is Beach Escapes only gives you 3 key FOBs (one for each bedroom) to access the Silver Shells gates to enter the pool and beach area. With 5 adults, ranging from ages of 23 to 80, this created issues with who could go where and when. I requested more key FOBs on Monday but did not receive additional FOBs until Thursday evening. All in all, this is not a bad condo. Its nicely located and suits your needs for a beach vacation. I would suggest Beach Escapes do an inspection after their cleaning crews get it ready for guests to ensure expectation is met. The condo was cleaner when we left than when we first got there. Beach Escapes did give a small refund and offered a small discount for our next stay as there were several other issues that I am not listing. I've stayed at Silver Shells every Summer for the last 12 years and never encountered these type of issues. This was my first time using Beach Escapes. While they addressed most issues when reported (with exception of the FOBs), I will probably go with another realty as even with the discount they offered for next year, I already have better offers from previously utilized realties in the area for other condos.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the cleanliness issues you experienced during your stay. We are aware that the carpets ned replacing and have suggested that the owner replace them during the off season. The owners have replaced the TV's in the living room as well as the master bedroom. We apologize for the leak and toilet issues and have since repaired these items. We have since begun an inspection process before and after each guest to inspect for cleaning and maintenance issues. Again, we do apologize for the issues you experienced. Thanks, Beach Escapes Team
