Guestbook comments from the owner

I work for the owner of this condo and my family and I had the fabulous opportunity to visit it in the Summer of 05'. My son spent his 1st birthday there and it was a great time! Silver Shells was a great family oriented place with tons of kids at the main pool, but lots of privacy at the smaller St. Lucia Pool. Some highlights of the condo were the awesome entertainment it provided, including the plasma televisions, movie channels, and surround sound. The beds are comfy, the kitchen fully equipped, and the access to the beach was a quick walk away. Would recommend highly, to families, couples, or anyone looking for a relaxing place to get away!

Amazing! Quiet! Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful! It was so quiet that we wondered if we were the only ones there. The beds were so comfortable. The view from the balcony is so pretty. We enjoyed the full kitchen and made good use of the laundry facilities. The heated outdoor pool was great! Perfect for the windy cool (high 60’s) days we visited. The kids loved the beach and it was so nice to have the beach chairs available and a few toys to play with. We loved the proximity to the Back Porch and the Candymaker store. A dedicated covered parking space was a plus. Really, we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. It was so easy to be there. My only suggestion is to make recycling available. We will definitely recommend to friends and family!

An amazing condo. Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The condo we stayed in was beyond what we expected! Everything was perfect! The owner keeps the condo immaculate. When we arrived we didn't have to worry about runnning to the store right away. They provided us with the essentials to get you started (toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap. And more) Everything was super clean. The view from the condo is absolutely beautiful! I could have just sat on the balcony all day watching the clear turquoise water! The beach is to die for at this location. Dealing with the owner was super easy. He made the booking and the details easy. He was easy to get ahold of and prompt with any questions I had! I will be there next year! In the same condo! Thank you!!!
