Utopia is the finest gulf front vacation condo in the Silver Shells resort. This condo is located in St. Maarten, the only true gulf front rental capable building in the Silver Shells resort. This is a very large two bedroom, two bath condo that sleeps 6 comfortably. Utopia is a ground floor lanai unit.

The flooring is hickory in the living room and master suite with cork flooring in the guest suite.

The bathrooms are lavishly adorned with fine imported stones and onyx. The kitchen has granite counters and all custom made cabinetry throughout.

You will not find another bathroom like this in Silver Shells! You can also enjoy the custom bar with matching ceiling and Jenn-Air beverage center. Pendant lighting is found throughout the unit to finish off this impeccable look. This condo is furnished with beautiful luxury furnishings and custom made furniture.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just returned home from our week at Utopia. If you are looking for beautiful accomodations, close proximity to the beach, and convenience-this is the place to stay. The location was perfect--loved being on the main floor with no elevators to worry about. Just a few short steps and you're right on the beach. The decor in the condo is amazing-- what you see in the pictures is what you get! First class accomodations without a doubt! The location of the resort is close to shopping and restaurants. Pool is large and very nice. I would highly recommend Utopia and would definately stay here again.

Amazing Condo!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Utopia! It was worth every cent. Our kids enjoyed their room with bunk beds and separate tv. I enjoyed the amazing kitchen and patio. The master bedroom, bathroom, and closet are huge. We had extra storage leftover after unpacking, which never happens with 4 girls in the family. The living room had lots of fun games in the cabinet. I can't wait to buy a washer and dryer setup like the one in Utopia. It was nice having an extra bathroom in the laundry room for guests (I don't remember seeing photos of it before booking). There was a Dyson vacuum to clean the sand from the floors as needed. The patio is huge and our kids played football and ran around in the rain. We used the grills a few times, which are located at both ends of the 1st floor. The entire condo was decorated like a custom home and the appliances were new and up to date. It was nice having a separate garage for our car right by the elevators just steps from the condo. There were even 4 heavy duty beach chairs, corn hole, and sand toys for us to use during our stay. The pool was kept clean and just steps from the condo. There were never enough pool chairs, but that's ok since we spent our time in the pool with our little kids. We could seriously retire in a place like Utopia!

Wow, what a wonderful place to stay in Destin. No one in our family was ready to leave at the end of the week! The owners and their amazing representative, Josh, thought of everything to make our stay 5 star***** all the way.
I know we had the best accomodations at Silver Shells borrow none! If we had a problem, we just called Josh and he took care of it immediately. Everything was brand new, state of the art and so well thought out for a home away from home. The location could not have been any better. We spent every day on the beach and every evening out on the town in Destin - couldn't have asked for a more perfect and pleasant vacation. We'll definitely be back more than once next year. Thanks again for sharing your "other home" with us!
