About Kathy Howard

Kent Hardin of Memphis, TN is owner of this property. His father and uncle were amongst the first owners of units in this complex. Kent is an avid fisherman and known around town as Captain Kent.

Kathy Howard purchased this condo in 1994

Why Kathy Howard chose Destin

Kent purchased this place from his Uncle Jabie Hardin back in the early 90s. When Opal came through and leveled the front two buildings , a complete rebuild was necessary. The balcony was expanded, bathrooms enlarged and a washer and dryer were added. In 2013, we completely redecorated the inside.

What makes this condo unique

One of the most unique features about the complex is the green lawn area between the buildings. In the evening you will find chairs pulled out in circles to talk and enjoy the view, children playing Frisbee, and people walking hand in hand down to the beautiful beach. Silver Dunes has retained its charm since the 70s and has not given way to the high rise craze. It is still a place to bring a family or friends and enjoy the ease of a walk up condo and be close enough to the beach to hear the waves lapping at the shore.

Loved our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation with my parents, husband & two kids (ages 6 & 2)

The condo was super clean, spacious, the kitchen was loaded with everything you needed! I loved that it has a washer and dryer! The balcony was amazing with the most beautiful view of the beach! We will definitely stay here again! Highly recommend!

Great location! Beautiful Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is clean and very close to the beach. There is a nice view of the ocean from the porch. We love the convenience of being so close to the beach you could walk back-and-forth if you needed something and the beach was not crowded. It is also centrally located in Destin which makes it nice as well. The only drawback I see was the foil on the stove and the burners, I guess to keep it clean...I was concerned about a fire hazard so we didn't use it.

First trip to Destin

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (husband and 2 small children, ages 1 and 5) rents tho condo this past week. It was absolutely PERFECT. Stunning ocean views from the kitchen and balcony, full stocked kitchen with all well working appliances, location to beach is perfect. Literally just a few steps away. The pool was nice but we didn't use it much. George is wonderful and provides excellent beach services for a small fee. We want to stay again next year for my sons spring break but it's already booked it looks like!!
