Bad, Bad, Bad!

  • 1 of 5

I'm sorry that we did not take credence to the prior reviewer that made comments about the carpet and outdoor furniture, oh but there is more. When we went to go to bed Saturday night (first night) after a very long day, lying there, it was, "what's that?". We got up and turned on the lights (the few that were working), and water (or at least I hope that's what it was) was leaking from the ceiling, hitting the top of the headboard and splashing on our faces. It was too late to do anything that night, so my husband slept crossway at the foot of the bed and I slept on an approximately three foot loveseat (I'm 5'6"). The next morning we called Bliss Rentals and told them what was going on. To our surprise, their response was basically, "It's not our problem, it's not our rental leaking. Pull the bed away from the wall, so the water doesn't hit the headboard". The headboard was anchored (read bolted) to the wall, not a solution. Bliss called Silver Shells, the brilliant, fouled mouthed individuals that they sent up and apparently didn't know that anyone was in there, said that they "didn't know what the **** it was leaking from, because these are ******* concrete ceilings". I could go on and on, but they have limits on the number of characters that you can use on a review. In short, the carpets were unbelievably disgusting, the bed linens equally so, the kitchen vent hood cover was taped up with duct tape (we only know this because after cooking breakfast Sunday morning, the tape came loose from the heat of the stovetop and it fell, which narrowly missed hitting a one year old. One of the closet doors was not even attached, but leaned up inside the closet (yet another good thing for small children). On August 5th, someone from Bliss (aka Five Star Beach Properties) asked us to send them all the pictures that we took of the mess, no reply. I sent it again on the 11th, still no reply. . I do not recommend this property, and I certainly don't recommend "Bliss Rentals/Five Star Beach Properties". I would think that the actual owners of this property would be PO'd that their so called "Management Company" didn't care a less, not only about the renters, but about having their property ruined by someone else's leak. I know as a rental property owner, using a Management Company, I would be. But if you're hungry, or need sand, their was an inch of sand and an approximately 1/2 bag of Cheetos under the couches (we didn't have any Cheetos, nice cleaning).

11th floor condo

  • 2 of 5

Silver Shells is a great location! The view was great. The condo was not clean. The carpets were stained and dirty and the third bedroom had water stains on the ceiling and the ceiling starting leaking the evening before we checked out. The layout of the condo was great. We had three couples - so each couple got a king bed.

Largest complex in Destin

  • 4 of 5

We rented 1102 AKA "Beachfront Destination Unit" this unit has the elevator that opens directly into the unit which was very nice - felt like a Penthouse. The unit was clean had all the amenities you would need. The floor to ceiling windows were nice, the unit gets the morning sun so great if you enjoy early sunrise. I will say the unit does need new carpet we only used 1 of the 3 bedrooms but I would have been furious if I had guest. The carpet was bad needs to be replaced. The master bath was large lots of white tile and large whirlpool tub that is really useless for us. The bathroom was typical of that area but could use some updating. The outdoor furniture was cheap and should be updated. We were able to get a discount because of off season so I'm very happy with the choice but if I were paying top dollar tho review would be more negative. The complex is the best in Destin and the security is awesome you don't go onto this property unless you are suppose to be there- lots of security passes.

The carpet in this unit was just cleaned throughout and seems to have improved some of the stains you mentioned. We will look into any other updates that can be made to the bathroom and patio furniture as well.

Great Vacation!

Silver Shores is such a beautiful neighborhood in Destin and the picture perfect ocean views were stunning. The resort amenities were a huge plus with a spa and fitness center! The pictures portrayed this condo to perfection and everything was all very clean!:)
