About Frank Barnhill

We are Geneva and Frank Barnhill. We have been married 50 years, and live in Dunwoody, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. We have owned condos in Destin for more than 34 years, and at Silver Shells since 2002. Our entire family, our children and grandchildren love Destin and Silver Shells. Geneva and I enjoy the Relaxation, Walks on the Beach, the Spa, Shopping, Golf, great Restaurants and our family loves the Beach, Pool and the many things to do at Silver Shells and in Destin.

We call it our HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

Frank Barnhill purchased this condo in 2002

Why Frank Barnhill chose Florida North West

We visited Destin about 34 years ago and discovered it's beautiful beach, friendly people and many wonderful restaurants. In 2002 we stopped at Silver Shells for lunch, took one look at the view from our 8th floor condo, and bought it immediately. Silver Shells is an Upscale, Gated, Family oriented Beach Resort. It was the best family decision we have ever made.

What makes this condo unique

For us it is the Rest, Relaxation, walking on the beautiful beach, Spa, Fitness Center and the many wonderful restaurants we have discovered in Destin. We also enjoy breakfast, lunch and cocktails with a spectacular view from our balcony. Our children and grandchildren love the Beach, huge Pool, Playground and the many things to do at Silver Shells and in Destin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very pleasant stay this week. Your condo was just perfect for what we needed. Thanks so much for the little extras you provided. Your suggestion of restaurants was great.

We will return in the late fall and stay in your condo again.

Just wanted to thank you for such a cozy place.

The PERFECT condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo honestly has the most perfect view at the resort! It's a very comfortable condo. It had everything we needed! It was nice that they had beach chairs and various beach toys for our son. There are also lots of movies for all ages. They have a huge binder full of recommendations and restaurant menus that we found very helpful. The condo is very clean. This resort is very family friendly! We will be back for sure! The Barnhills were such nice people and we are so glad they have shared their home away from home!

A Great Vacation at the Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been to Destin and Silver Shells a few time before, but this was the Nicest Condo we have stayed in. It was so much better than we expected. The Barnhills did everything they could to help make our stay incredible and a Home Away from Home. They even told us about the best restaurants, the best shopping, and the best sites and things to do in Destin. The Condo was exceptionally clean and everything was updated. The balcony view was unbelievable! We will definitely be back again and hopefully for a much longer stay. Thank you for a great vacation!!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

WEEK IN PARADISE!

If you love the beach, you will love Silver Shells, and this condo.

The Barnhills went out of their way to make our vacation even better.

We’ve been to Destin many times and this is the nicest, most well kept

condo we’ve ever stayed in. It was very clean and everything was updated.

Our family loved the beautiful beach and pool, and every morning we

enjoyed breakfast on the balcony. The view was unbelievable.

There are also many other things to do in Destin, and good places to eat.

What a great week! We have already booked it again for next year.

Spring Break 2015

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the condo and all the resort amenities. While the water was a little cold the pool more than made up for that. The condo had all that we needed. Will definitely look for a return trip.

We just returned from a week in #805 condo in St. Croix, "What a beautiful piece of paradise!"

The location is perfect, dead center over the entire complex, with a 180 degree view of the white sands and Gulf of Mexico. This 8th floor condo is spacious, elegantly furnished and very clean. Pictures do not do it justice. The kitchen and baths are fully supplied and the king bed in the master is very comfortable. I enjoyed watching football on the two large flat screens.

Most days we enjoyed coffee on the large covered deck, walks on the beach and delicious seafood dinners at near-by restaurants. Thank you, Frank and Geneva, for sharing your beautiful condo with us, we will be recommending it and we will be returning.
