Great girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

The girls and I had a wonderful weekend trip and we loved the condo! We took full advantage of the on site spa and the fully stocked gym. This condo had everything we needed and we were all really impressed with the property and everything it offered. The views were phenomenal and we have already started planning out return trip for next year!

Great Family Trip

  • 4 of 5

The condo is great, and the property management (Beach Escapes Realty) is even better, they are extremely responsive and are very organized compared to other companies we have booked with. Awesome view from the balcony and the unit is very clean compared to other units we have stayed in. Yes, some items in the condo are outdated and probably should be replaced, but most condos in Destin are that way and everything in this condo worked great. The only downside to this unit is that the 3rd bedroom does not have a door or closet. It is actually what seems to be a den converted in to a bedroom. We were only traveling with me, my wife and 2 yr old, so we didn't need to use the 3rd bedroom, but if you had a large group with some light sleepers/kids, the '3rd bedroom' might not be ideal. I will say It is tucked away in to the back of the condo, but just thought I would write it in my review. Overall this was an awesome experience for us!! We will definitely be back.

Great location for families and gorgeous gulf views!

  • 5 of 5

We love St. Maarten! The condo has the most amazing gulf views and was perfect for our family of 5. It was clean and there was plenty of room for everyone. We love the amenities at Silver Shells and being in the heart of Destin. We will definitely be back!

Nice but could be better

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice unit with a great view. Silver Shells is a good location with nice amenities. They could make this unit great instead of good with a few changes. The matresses should be replaced. They are very uncomfortable. A unit of this caliber should also have larger TVs, they are very small. Some little things like supplying salt and pepper shakers, non-stick spray, and having some better non-stick pans would be helpful. Also, there should be more than 3 room keys provided with a unit that sleeps 8 as there are not enough to go around.
