About the Property
2 Bedroom/2 full Bath on 4th floor of complex with exceptional view! Sleeps 8!
First and most revered is the crystal clear Caribbean-like waters of the Gulf and the sugar white sand that “squeaks” when you walk on it. Travelers are so overwhelmed by the beauty of Destin’s beaches that nearby stores sell bottles of sand in case your friends have a hard time believing your description later. Southern Living readers rated it #1 Destination Beach over Myrtle Beach and Gulf Shores!
Silver Dunes is not a high rise with 20 floors to navigate with your beach gear before you reach the ground floor. It consists of units arranged in a sawtooth pattern so that all units offer a range of views of the beach. The 4th floor condos (which are on the uppermost floor of each front sawtooth building and of which 1400 C is one) offer the MOST spectacular view. Upon arrival, you will find yourself inexplicably drawn outside to the patio to view the stunning early morning and late night sights and sounds of the shoreline as you sip your coffee or cocktail. Don’t forget your camera because you will want to capture these special moments. And lest we fail to mention, the warm gulf breeze from this vantage point will also stay in your senses forever as it calms and lulls you into a feeling of extreme tranquility.
Unit 1400C has been renovated and updated with your complete relaxation and pleasure in mind. The Unit has been tastefully decorated in a beach theme with colors of sea foam blue, sand beige and driftwood grey and the floor is wood looking tile. The countertops are Brazilian granite. There are numerous accessories throughout the unit that have been added to give the unit a "homelike" ambiance. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed (with memory gel foam mattress topper that guarantees you uninterrupted sleep), spacious dresser, 1 nightstand, a flat screen smart TV with DVD player, and ceiling fan! The master opens into a bathroom with shower and tub combination ( and 7 setting shower head) as well as opening into the hallway coming from the living area. The second bedroom has 2 full-sized beds (each with a gel foam mattress topper), a spacious dresser, a small 2 drawer chest, ceiling fan and a flat screen smart TV with DVD player as well. The bedroom opens into a large 2nd bathroom with tub and shower combination, double sinks and a 7 setting shower head. The living room has a queen sofa sleeper that sleeps two and a futon that pulls out to sleep one. The kitchen is equipped with all essential appliances, cookware, dinnerware and flatware and comes fully stocked for those of you that really like to cook or entertain! The kitchen has a 4 burner stove, full oven, microwave, refrigerator with ice and water dispenser, dishwasher, cooking utensils, drip coffee-maker and Keurig single pod coffee maker, tea kettle, toaster, blender, cookware, dishes, glasses, flatware, and a spacious counter top for preparing food. There are full dinner settings for 6 and wine glasses and a wine rack for our adult guests. There is a George Foreman grill, blender and even a waffle maker! The dining room table seats six and the bar area consists of two bar stools and a raised countertop that seats 2. Other amenities include: WiFi internet and upgraded cable TV package, 50” flat screen TV in the living area with smart DVD player with soundbar, flat screens and smart DVD players in all rooms, central air and ceiling fans in all rooms, stacked washer/dryer and vacuum and broom. Additionally, Silver Dunes offers fresh towels and linens on a daily basis in a “towel exchange” with housekeeping and maid service can be arranged for long-term renters. There are even two barbecue areas with 4 BBQ grills in each area for those of you that desire to grill your dinner!
If the beach does not beckon you then Silver Dunes offers two lighted tennis courts, a heated swimming pool and children’s pool, game room, shuffleboard, and fitness room. The front office has a lending library with books and games and a guest computer with printer. The complex also has a coin operated laundromat for your extra wash and icemakers.
Do you have kids? While Silver Dunes offers the amenities that anyone - single or married - might want or need, the complex has some “special” features that are particularly suited for a family with kids of all sizes. The Silver Dunes complex is gated and there is a courtesy patrol which offers an extra measure of protection and security for those of you that have particularly active kids. In the center of the complex is a large lawn area that runs from the pool to the beach. In the evening, it becomes a playground for kids of all ages; whether it’s a game of Frisbee, tag, or Dad throwing a softball to Junior. From 1400C, you can watch the kids play on this lawn while enjoying “adult” time on the balcony.
To thank our military for their service, we proudly offer a 15% military discount applied to active duty, reserve, and retired. You must show your ID at check-in and restrictions may apply. We love “snowbirds” and offer discounted rates to those staying longer than 30 days.
Silver Dunes is a no-smoking, no pets facility.
We look forward to you booking your next vacation with us! Call Silver Dunes office at 850-837-6104 for your next memorable vacation! You will not be disappointed! Also hurry to book vacation for the 2016 summer...vacation weeks are booking fast and we don't want you to miss the stay of your lifetime.!!!

Want to get out and experience Destin’s other attractions? Practically across the street from Silver Dunes is the “Big Kahuna” Water and Adventure Park. You can slide, float, and tumble down 40 different attractions including a lazy river, a wave pool, Cyclone and Sky Coaster rides and huge slides. You can also play miniature golf and race go-karts. “The Track” Recreation Center offers bumper boats, bungee jumping, go-kart racing, a large arcade, and miniature golf; Amusement USA offers Hamster Balls, Bungee Trampolines, and the HarborWalk Mining Co.; and Harborwalk Village offers Cubby the Caboose Train Ride. At the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park you can snorkel with stingrays and sharks, feed penguins, watch otters play and get a kiss from a harbor seal. These parks are seasonal so please check on their availability.
If you have teens that are into thrills, Destin offers helicopter and seaplane rides or you can send them to The Track for the 75-foot plunge from their bungee jumping tower. Your family can also climb aboard the SeaBlaster –a 75 ft speedboat which features different cruises including snorkeling and dolphin cruise combination trips, afternoon beach dolphin cruises, and relaxing sunset dolphin cruises.
Want something a little less heart pounding? The Destin area offers some really terrific shopping and not just of the cheesy souvenir type. Start your spree at Destin Commons, a new outdoor complex anchored by a Rave Motion Pictures theater, Bass Pro Shop, Hard Rock Cafe, and Belk. Scattered around these biggies are both boutiques and well-known stores, as well as a playground area and a 49-head pop-up fountain for kids to run through. HarborWalk Village on the Destin Harbor offer an inviting collection of sixty or so waterfront restaurants, nightclubs, water activities, quaint shops, exclusive boutiques and more than 20 boats from the Destin Charter Boat Fishing Fleet. This is where the Emerald Coast gathers for weekly fireworks, seasonal festivals and live entertainment. Make sure to bring an extra suitcase because Silver Sands Premium Outlet is one of Florida's largest designer outlet complexes with more than 100 top designer names featured and there are eight eateries in the complex! And, in both directions from Silver Dunes are local novelty, art and souvenir retailers carrying all kinds of swim attire, boogie boards, beach jewelry and even hermit crabs.
If cooking is your thing, there are plenty of supermarkets that carry all the necessary culinary requirements such as Publix, Walmart and Whole Foods. However if vacation means never seeing the stove, Destin offers dining experiences too numerous to name. If seafood is what you love, you can expect “fresh from the sea” quality and service with selections landed daily from the Gulf.
About: The units 1400C and 203D were originally owned by Mr. and Mrs. Otto Glade. They bought these condos when the units were first built because they were so impressed with the layout and the incredible value of Silver Dunes Condominiums. Their sons, Dean and Gary Glade, who vacationed at Silver Dunes since the late 70’s with their parents, inherited the condos from their mother upon her passing. The third brother, Mark, recently acquired 105D in the same complex.
Why Destin, FL, USA:
This property offers private beachfront and an opportunity to feel like you are not competing for chair space on the beach with hundreds of fellow renters - unlike other high rise condominiums in the area. It also hosts 2 tennis courts, a pool and a neatly manicured greenbelt in between the 2 sawtooth complexes that serves as a play area for kids of all ages. The walk to the beach is only 30 yards from the elevator and there are ice machines on alternate floors for ease of filling your ice chest.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The unit 1400C is on the 4th and top floor of one of the Silver Dunes sawtooth complex. This particular condo has magnificent views of the beach and ocean from the patio and picture window yet it also offers you a birdseye view of the greenbelt area from the patio if your kids are playing below. The breeze from this vantage point is also delightful and you will be tempted to spend all your non-beach time outside on the patio soaking up the sights and sounds of the oceanside. To be on the 4th floor does not in any way diminish the convenience of the unit to the beach since the elevators are a couple of steps away and the beach is only 30 yards from the ground floor outside the elevators. This unit also features sleeping arrangements for 9 unlike other units in the same complex.
