Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Destin - ST MAARTEN 808

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.

Just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

I give this vacation home 5 stars. It was everything that the online pictures show and more!!! The condo was absolutely beautiful...the views were amazing! The property was very well maintained...the pool was stunning and huge. There are a lot of things to do along 98. This has been my best vacation spot thus far...not sure it gets any better! Definitely worth the price. I loved it and will be returning!

excellent location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

The unit was full of upgrades and adequately stocked kitchen. Our only complaints were with the management company. Repeated unauthorized entry of maintenance personnel, even after addressing it with rental company, the refrigerator water dispenser did not work and the dryer did not work well and was extremely noisy and many bulbs were burnt out..., all easily fixed and should be fixed for an other renter. Overall we really liked this unit and the view was amazing from the balcony which was very nicely furnished.

The indoor outdoor pool at the spa was a vacation saver given how chilly our week was...check out The Crab Trap for kids buckets and shovels with meals or Back Porch for Frisbees.....

Fantastic Unit - incredible upgrades and awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this incredible corner unit with wrap around terrace at St Maarten in Silver Shells in Destin over Spring Break. The unit has just undergone a major overhaul. The floors in all the rooms have been redone - including the two terraces. Additionally, all the furniture is brand new - and the beds were incredibly comfortable. Having several restaurants within walking distance was very nice. We sent the boys to Back Porch for lunch a couple times - and the place right next door serves a great breakfast! Ruth Cris has a great bar (restaurant is on the property) - which serves apps and wine at happy hour prices - even though the bar was large, it got packed - which added to the festive atmosphere. We didn't use the spa, but the workout facilities are very nice. Additionally, the parking was in a garage below the building with an assigned spot just next to the elevator.
