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!

I booked last minute but knew the complex and it's facilities from last years trip. I am so glad I chose Silver Shells again and rented from Jim this time. His unit in the st Lucia building was beautiful,clean and well equipped. The view was great! You could see the Gulf, the city strip and the airport landing. No complaints! Why pay more for a unit in the St.Maarten building when this condo had a great gulf view too! It's true the pool and beach area is a bit of a walk around the back but Jim provided a trolley cart with 4 beach chairs and umbrella making the trip manageable. I am talking a 2 minute walk people! Not to mention St Lucia has it's own private hot tub and pool so you could just take the elevator down and stay close to the building if you preferred for those night swims. The location is perfect. Everything a short drive away including Walmart, the track ( go-carting \mini golf) , and restaurants. We also enjoyed getting frozen yogurt and treats at the Candy shop located at the public beach entrance. I would definitely rent this unit again. Free wi-fi, spacious unit, reasonable rates and 5* accommodation made this rental amazing!

Great Family Springbreak

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for springbreak. The condo was so nice and very large. The resort was great and everything was really close by, very short walk to pool and beach. Also walking distance to the Back Porch and The Candy Maker (which the kids loved) The condo was very clean and decorated nice. It was by far the best place we have ever stayed in Destin! Will definitely go back!!

Great place at a great price!

  • 5 of 5
Great condo for a family of 4! Our kids loved the beach. Unfortunately, the big pool is not heated in October, but the small pool is! The condo is clean and we'll kept. Near everything. No problems with our reservation or checkin. Best price for 2 weeks too!
Just two gripes: We have young kids and watched movies at night and our backs noticed the couches are ready to be replaced. Second, time for a new frying pan in the kitchen! Sounds funny, I know, but we stayed 2 weeks and eating out all the time is not an option, nor realistic when your 3 year old says, "feed me eggs now!" (At 8:30 am before I've had coffee or even gotten out of bed!)

Destination Wedding-

  • 5 of 5
This was the most beautiful condo we have ever stayed in. It was exactly as described and had everything we needed. The view was amazing from both bedrooms and the living room. You have to go to the Backporch for dinner and The Candymaker for breakfast and sweets. Everyone was friendly, especially the security guys when we forgot our fobs to get in the building :) Thank you Jim for sharing your vacation home with us. We hope to return to Destin and stay in 1004. The wedding was beautiful, the resort staff did an amazing job.

Incredible Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing vacation in an incredible condo. We loved the location of the condo being so close to everything there is to do in the area! We were so blessed to be there in the right week as we didn't have a drop of rain and the temps were just perfect!
So many wonderful memories with our 2 year old! We will be back again for certain!

Thank you Patti for getting all set up for us!!

A real pleasure to work with such great people!

PS - the dvd player didn't work in master but that didn't effect us as we just used the one in the living room for our daughter.

Many Thanks!!

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed our time in Unit 1004. The condo was very clean, well-maintained, and spacious. The pool and gulf were so close, and having access to the four beach chairs was great. Destin is a wonderful area for a vacation. We ate at McGuire's, The Donut Hole, Louisiana Lagniappe, Callahan's, Pepitos, Outback, and Landshark's Pizza. We highly recommend these restaurants. There was always something for both the adults and the kids. My family and I look forward to staying in this condo in the future.
