Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Destin - Silver Shells Resort.

Newly remodeled

Silver Shells is Destin's number one resort and St. Maarten is the most desired building! This smoke-free condominium has a semi-private elevator that opens directly into the unit with breathtaking views of the Emerald Coast from our eighth-floor unit.

We recently completed remodeling adding Travertine flooring in kitchen and living room area, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and 60' flat screen TV.

Our family of 4, (2 adults, kids ages 8 & 4) stayed at Silver Shells this past October. We are from MN and were not sure what Destin had to offer (this was our 1st time to the beach with kids) and were amazed at the incredible condo and location! True to the pictures, the condo was classy, clean and includes all the amenities. We loved how family friendly & secure the building is. The elevator opened up right to the floor (a 1st for us- soo fancy!)

The weather was perfect- low 80's and hardly a cloud in the sky. Our kids loved the sugar white sandy beach- building sand castles and catching crabs! The condo had a nice variety of board games and sand castle supplies for borrowing as well! Great variety of restaurants near by including a fabulous BBQ place across the street! We enjoyed our stay soo much and plan to return again!

We have had the fortune to stay in Silver Shells many times and I can assure that this condo ranks as one of the best. The view is terrific - I don't believe there are any units that are better!! The large balcony allows great views of the Gulf and the swimming pool. The unit is well maintained and appointed and has everything you would ever need for a great vacation stay. My family had a blast as the weather was perfect and the accommodations were just as great. We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone and in fact, we will be trying to make it our place to stay on future trips to Destin.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

Two families with a total of six kids stayed in this condo, and it was perfect! The condo was spacious, comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked with cooking utensils and the balcony view was fantastic!! Loved both the pool and the beach, plus the amenities offered by the resort. We had so much fun here and would love to go again! Thanks so much!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo for its location and setup. With two families, there were king sized beds for the couples and bunk beds for all the kiddos. It was beautifully appointed with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay on the beach. And what a view!!! Not only would we recommend this condo for other families, but we plan on requesting it for our next Destin vacation!

We had the most amazing time!! The condo was perfect for two families. We had 5 kids and plenty of room. We could've had more kids and had plenty of room. Both couples had a master with a great beach view. One room had a large enough closet that when a 25 year old adult came up from Tampa to visit, she stayed in the closet and slept on the twin mattress that was in there. It was really nice that the elevator opened up right into the room. The candy shop right next door has great breakfast! And the pool was really warm! I could go on and on....
