About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

This stunning corner unit is located in the Silver Shells complex in the heart of Destin. With upgrades galore, this condo is just the right backdrop for the breathtaking views of the Gulf you'll see through the sliding glass doors that open to an expansive balcony.

Every room in this resort condominium has special touches that will dazzle guests. The renovations to this unit include all new furniture, kitchen updates, gorgeous tiled floors, a remodeled Master Bath, and new colors throughout. One of the most adored features of this unit is that the main terrace wraps around the corner, giving panoramic views both south and west for spectacular beach scenes and sunsets. Additionally, the two secondary bedrooms share another terrace for views to the northwest.

The living room displays all brand new furniture and artwork, and 35 feet of floor to ceiling windows! The built-in entertainment center contains a 50-inch television to entertain guests on a rainy day. If you want to truly enjoy the beach experience, wander out to the balcony through your floor to ceiling sliding doors to enjoy the sugar white sand beaches and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The renovated Master Suite features a luxurious king-sized bed with huge sliding doors facing the terrace and the Gulf. Since the unit is on the corner, there are plantation shuttered windows facing west as well. The Master Bath has been updated as well, featuring a stunning double vanity, a newly-tiled garden tub, and a newly tiled seamless glass shower. The bedroom is beautifully decorated for your relaxation and enjoyment. There's plenty of space to store your beachwear in the spacious walk-in closets with new shelving.

The Queen Suite is equally well appointed with two queen beds and plenty of space for everything you've brought to the beach. This bedroom has an adjacent oversize bath with garden tub and shower. The third and final bedroom is an additional King Suite with an adjacent bathroom. These two bedrooms have large sliding glass doors to a shared terrace, and they both have newly installed large plantation shuttered windows.

All the bedrooms have High Definition Cable with access to most of the popular channels. Additionally, all the mattresses were just upgraded to the Sealy Posturepedic Lakehust collection.

The open gourmet kitchen has been equipped with new granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, high-quality cookware, and new cabinetry. The wrap-around bar makes it easy for everyone to grab a quick snack or a full meal. The adjacent dining area comfortably seats six, and offers beach views so the family can share meals and trade their favorite part of the day at the beach, all while enjoying the beauty of the gulf.

The walk-in laundry room provides a conveniently located Washer/Dryer to make keeping everyone in clean clothes a breeze. Also, there is a trash chute located just through the laundry room in the service hallway, making trash duty fun for the kids.

There is a designated parking spot in the secured garage just adjacent to the elevator bank. There are several other guest parking spots in the garage, along with additional parking just adjacent to the building.

Featuring all of its upgrades and new relaxing beach decor, guests will be swept away when they enter this breathtaking condo.

This Silver Shells luxury resort residence is just the place for you and your family to enjoy a truly memorable beach vacation. This complex offers multiple amenities including a massive pool and hot tubs, an exercise facility, and an onsite Ruth Cris Restaurant that provides both superb meals and a great lounge area for happy hour. There are multiple other restaurants all within a very short walking distance - including the well-known Back Porch, which is a constant Destin favorite. Additionally there is a great coffee shop just next door that serves a full breakfast menu throughout peak season.

Best Silver Shells condo yet!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the first week of June in St Maarten 808. We chose this unit because of the renovated status, corner location, and ocean view. The condo did not disappoint! Beautiful flooring, very nice furniture, comfortable beds, updated kitchen and bathrooms, nice linens, huge laundry room. We have stayed at numerous Silver Shells condos over the past decade and this was our favorite. It was also very clean when we arrived (which has been a problem with other units in the past). We had a slow draining hallway toilet that took a few tries to fix, but they were courteous and prompt and eventually replaced a valve that resolved the problem. Each time the maintenance person came while we were out- it affected us very minimally. One thing that is different from the VRBO pictures is that there is a new condo building that blocks part of the view to the right side. Still, we had plenty of oceanfront views to enjoy. We especially loved the wraparound deck and hung out each night before dinner in the comfy seating area off of the master bedroom. On the last day the management called to make sure our stay had been wonderful. We'll definitely book this unit next time we come to Destin!

Silver Shells resort is also our favorite in Destin. The beach is immaculate, the beach side Tiki Hut is a necessity, and the pool area is very large and well-maintained. All the staff we encountered were very welcoming and helpful. We keep thinking we will try another resort, but we really don't think we could beat it!

Excellent vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and newly updated. It had beautiful furnishings and was very roomy. Compared to the rest of the properties we have stayed at in Saint Maarten, it was the best by far. We will stay again!

Very pretty decor..needs to be cleaned. Management company is awful

  • 3 of 5

Be aware the view in the pictures is not accurate. There is a new building that went up on the west side and it is in the sight line of the view.

Black mold in the master bathroom shower, broken floor tiles, rusted patio set etc. Beds were uncomfortable too which made for a long week.

We loved Silver Shells but I will not rent this unit again unless they get a new management company that takes better care of it. They never left the keys in the after hours box so the first night after driving 18 hours we had to stay at a hotel. Not a good start to our trip.

The beach and pool are beautiful and we loved having the sand trap bar for lunch and drinks. Bring cash for the shaved ice-so yummy!

Destin never disappoints.

Owner's Response: Hi Megan, Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. The photos should have been updated as the building went up and we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. It has since been changed. We are sorry to hear that you felt the condo was not well-kept. We pride ourselves on offering five-star accommodations and have notified the appropriate people, as we did while you were here so that the conditions mentioned could be improved upon. Our Guest Service staff did try to make up for lost time by providing free passes to area attractions and a complimentary gift card to a local restaurant. We hope to have the opportunity to show you the improvements we have made and offer you a true five-star experience. Thank you again for your feedback. Sincerely, Bliss Beach Rentals
