Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Silver Shells Resort is Destin’s premier vacation location directly on the Gulf of Mexico and close to all the other vacation destinations and activities in Destin. The St. Croix building presides at the center of this complex and offers an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico, white sand, and emerald waters that cannot be adequately described. You will be awestruck by the view from the 14th floor, directly below the penthouse level. Dining on the balcony for breakfast, lunch or dinner is accompanied by speakers connected to the stereo system tuner. You can enjoy your favorite CD or radio station while basking in the view of white sand and emerald waters. Bring your binoculars to watch the dolphins and boats as they navigate the crystal blue waters.

Each room has ceiling to floor sliding glass doors for easy access to the balcony. New for 2010 are light blocking drapes in each bedroom. Decorated with ease of living in mind, each room reflects a slightly different tropical theme. Colors are bright and cheerful so the day’s activities are extended into the evening hours.

The living room has, new in 2014, a wall mounted flat screen HDTV, with DVD and VHS capacity. The tuner is connected to speakers throughout the unit so all rooms can receive audio. Each room has individual controls, allowing volume setting to be personalized.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with a wall mounted TV/VHS and a DVD player so viewing from bed is comfortable. The walk in closet allows for ample storage. The master bath has Jacuzzi bath and a separate tiled shower. Newly added in 2010 are sun blocking drapes in both bedrooms.

Sleeping arrangements are completed with a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and twin beds in the Gulf front bedroom. The guest room also has a wall mounted TV/VHS and a DVD player. The guest bath has a large tiled shower and full sized washer and dryer.

Your assigned parking space is next to the elevator entrance in the underground garage. A definite plus when the summer sun is in its fullest glory.

Poolside you will find a wading pool and a playground for the toddlers in your group. Pool furniture is on a first come, first serve basis and cannot be reserved - but the cabana is your special luxury for your private use while our guests. You can escape the heat of the day or store your drinks, snacks, or meals without having to run up to the condo or carry a cooler down. These are the envy of all poolside.

The cabana is air conditioned and has a microwave, TV with DVD player, a refrigerator, a half bath, and a futon couch. The table and chairs can be moved outdoors or left inside for your poolside convenience.

Look carefully at the pictures - all that's missing is YOU!

Why Michele Abernathy chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

I have lived around the Destin Emerald Beach area since 1956. Traveling with my military family gave me exposure to many vacation destinations around the world - none compare to Destin for activities, food, and attractions. My desire is for your family to experience the unparalleled amenities of the Destin area and to begin your family memories here.

What makes this condo unique

St. Croix at Silver Shells is a private resort. The atmosphere rivals any 'off shore' resort with the added convenience of still being in the States. We enjoy the pool and cabana to make the most of our vacation time with the least hassle. Nearby restaurants are icing on the cake since we can walk to several including Ruth's Chris right on the property.

Owner's Response: Silver Shells Resort and Destin have the best to offer for a beach vacation. The view from the 14th floor of the Gulf is beyond being adequately captured in any photograph. The cabana at the pool makes it a carefree experience.

Perfect family vacation

The property is meticulously maintained and very clean. We found the condo spotless and well stocked. The use of the cabana is a huge plus. Definitely a carefree family vacation spot.

EXTREMELY SATISFIED!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay in this particular condo. The Owner is a pleasure to work with, the condo has the best view of the ocean and the pool, and we absolutely love the Silver Shells location in Destin. The condo is always clean. Silver Shells is also located adjacent to Henderson State Park, so the east side of the property is never crowded and now gives you a location to put up your own beach umbrella and/or tent, since the Silver Shells management has decided to no longer allow private umbrellas or tents on their property ( the one and only true negative of the entire property). Would, and have, recommended this condo for anyone wanting to stay in the heart of the Destin area.

Family FUN!!!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW, where do I start!!! The owners are soooo accommodating and super easy to work with!!!! The unit was just as pictured and on the 14th floor, the view was breathtaking!!! Easy access to the elevators with all our luggage, and, the cabana........Awesome!!!! It was so nice to just leave beach and pool toys in there and not have to hassle with them. I HIGHLY recommend this unit to anyone and it was great with my two grandchildren which are 3 and 1. I am so looking forward to spending more family vacations there!!! Thank you !!!

What a view

  • 5 of 5

The unit was just as nice as it appeared in the pictures. Because of the remains of storm Patricia and then red tide, we didn't get to use the cabana too much. It was nice when we brought in dinner one night and ate by the pool. The view is fantastic. Sunrise and sunset. The owner responded quickly to any inquiries. I would highly recommend this unit.
