Review from Guest that stayed March 25-March 29, 2018-

Gena and her team at Destin Beach Realty were very honest and wonderful to work with! We have stayed at the Silver Shells in the St. Maarten unit on several occasions. We love the building, the gulf front view, the private elevator, reserved parking, the huge pool, paths to the Candy Maker and the Back Porch, the workout center and basketball and tennis courts. I was hesitant to rent 1408 at first because of the not so great reviews given in 2017, but since then Gena and the team at Destin Beach Realty assured me that the owner had updated the condo. They were right! This unit is very clean and comfortable! We enjoyed our stay in Destin very much.

St. Maarten is the closet rental property to the beach within the Silver Shells Resort & Spa. St. Maarten sits on the Southern side of the resort.

St. Maarten is the closest building to the beach so you'll enjoy a very short stroll before your toes are in the sugary white sands!

St. Maarten is a really unique condo. From the elevator you will walk directly into unit 1408! No hall ways to walk down, just directly into your little piece of paradise! The condo features flat screen TVs in all rooms, floor to ceiling windows with views of the Gulf of Mexico from the living room, dining area, kitchen, master bedroom and large private balcony.

The dining area and living room are side by side making entertaining a breeze. You can enter the Gulf side tiled balcony from the living room or dining area and enjoy views of the Gulf and Destin.

The master bedroom faces towards the Gulf and has access to the Gulf side balcony too. The master bedroom has not one but TWO closets. One being a walk-in closet and the other being directly across from it with bi-fold doors. Great place to store your luggage after you’ve unpacked. This room features a flat screen TV & DVD player. Enjoy a private bathroom w/ garden tub, stand alone shower and double vanities. The master bedroom also has balcony access and Gulf views!

Your first guest bedroom features two queen beds, sleeping 4 total, a private bathroom and access to the shared, city side balcony that has gorgeous views of the City of Destin. This bedroom features a flat screen TV & DVD Player.

The third guest bedroom features a king bed, flat screen TV & DVD player and access to the shared, city side balcony with views of the city of Destin. The hall bathroom is directly next to this room!

Unit 1408 includes a huge, tiled balcony with balcony furnish to allow you to truly enjoy that million dollar view! Also, no need to worry about laundry as this unit has a huge laundry room w/ washer/dryer & sink. Walk right out your back door (located off of Laundry Room) to the trash chute. St. Maarten @ Silver Shells is a remarkable property.

Enjoy the views, the condo, the amenities and create memories your family will cherish forever.

The Silver Shells Resort features several pools, including an indoor pool, gorgeous lagoon style pool with tons of seating around it to ensure everyone in the family can kick back and relax and also the much desired kiddie pool. Enjoy hot tubs & grilling areas too. Silver Shells Resorts also offers their indoor/outdoor pool which is located near the Basketball Court & Tennis Courts. Lush landscaping, Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts, Childrens Playground, Childrens Pool, Hot Tub, Fitness Center, Tiki Beach Bar & Grill (seasonal), BBQ Grills and Covered Parking are just a few featured items at the Silver Shells Resort!

Free WIFI included!

Fun times are sure to be had shopping at the Destin Commons, Silver Sands Outlet Mall or one of the other dozens of other shopping centers, ride go carts and bumper boats at The Track, splash and slide at Big Kahunas water park, compete to see who gets the most tickets at Fat Daddy arcade, feed the crocodiles and enjoy lunch/dinner at Fudpuckers and water sports galore in Destin!!!!

This unit rents Saturday to Saturday only with a 5 night minimum during Spring Break, Peak Summer, and Fall Break.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We come back year after year because nothing compares. This was the first time we stayed here and it was very nice.

The rooms are all very spacious, even the one with two queen beds. The views were excellent and the amenities were nice, several pools and a playground for the kiddos.

We liked the balcony- it was large and it was tiled. We used it often.

June 2018 stay in 1408 St. Maarten, Silver Shells Resort

  • 5 of 5

The property was very comfortable and well appointed. Everything looked new (kitchen appliances and laundry room), and we found the beds extremely comfortable. The balcony was very well furnished with excellent views of both the Gulf and Destin. We would definitely stay in this unit again, and would have no reservations about recommending it to others.

Nice condo!

  • 4 of 5

Nice condo, great location. Not enough towels provided and no cabinet space or pantry to put away our food and supplies. It had the perfect amount of space and beds for our family of ten. Loved the large balcony but not the angled style view of the beach. In need of a decor update.

Very spacious.Room could use some updating but I would stay again.

  • 4 of 5

Silver Shells is a very nice resort. I have nothing negative to say at all. I looked at other locations and SS was hands down the best. Would have been good if beach chairs would have been included. They are if you book through Compass. Overall, great place with great amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Your feedback is important to us. Silver Shells is a great resort full of great amenities. The units at St. Maarten are very spacious. While this unit does not include beach service, we do set our rates lower than Compass Resorts to offset the cost in case our guest want to purchase the beach service through the company on the beach. We would love for you to stay with us again. Contact us if you would like to re-book for 2019!

Beautiful condo, spacious, all you need for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had an absolute wonderful time, with beautiful views in the spacious 1408. We had quite a trip, with lots of marine life swimming by each day (dolphins and rays), snagged some cool shells, lots of sunshine and lots of fun. This was a memorial trip as my family and I were in Destin last year at Silver Shells in August and my mom passed away November 2017. The unit is incredible. The beach at Silver Shells one of the best. Thanks

Great complex and rental company, but this unit needs some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

Definitely stay in this complex or work with this company, but I would not recommend this unit. The unit needs major updating. The dishwasher barely works. The dryer has a huge amount of rust on the inside. It does have great views, but could use updating for this price point.
