About Frank Barnhill

We are Geneva and Frank Barnhill. We have been married 52 years, and live in Dunwoody, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. We have owned condos in Destin for more than 36 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 36 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.

Wonderful beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our second stay in St. Croix 805! The unit is very well appointed and has a perfect view of the beach and pool. The beach chairs and toys in the unit were great to take down to the beach everyday. We love vacationing in Destin at Silver Shells resort and can't wait to plan our next visit!

Most relaxing & beautiful vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

I would like to start by saying the owner Frank is wonderful to work with. He provided all the information you needed, and more regarding the Destin area. This was so helpful! The condo is in the perfect location as Silver Shells has the best beach area! Wonderful ocean views from balcony, living room, and bedrooms. It is beautifully decorated and furnished with high quality furniture, comfortable beds & pillows! Kitchen was also furnished with all your needs. The place was immaculate and I can't wait to return!

Thank you Frank for helping make this the best vacation my husband and I have had in a long time!

Wow! Amazing vacation & condo!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week in Paradise!

The condo was beautiful and recently updated, and

the view was spectacular.

Silver Shells is the nicest Beach Resort we have been

to in Destin, and this was the nicest condo we’ve ever

stayed in.

The owners were great to work with and went out of

their way to make our stay even better. There was

an Information Book in the condo that had everything

we needed to know, including the better restaurants,

menus, shopping, golf courses, fishing, and everything

there is to do in Destin.

They even gave us a gift card for a favorite restaurant

on the harbor.

We also had access to The Club at Silver Shells. We

played tennis, and I really enjoyed the spa.

Our boys liked the indoor/outdoor pool and being able

to play basketball.

What a great spring break week. We will definitely be

returning to Silver Shells and this condo.

Awesome Stay at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Destin and Silver Shells several times, and this was the nicest condo we have stayed in. The View was unbelievable, the Pool was wonderful and what a beautiful Beach! The owners did everything they could to help make our stay even better. They told us about all the best Restaurants, Shopping, and everything there was to do in Destin. We are already talking about returning to Silver Shells and staying in this condo. Next time we will stay longer!

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!
