Beautiful and Serene

  • 4 of 5

Such a peaceful and relaxing week at Silver Shells. The views were lovely and the property in generally good condition. Beach was pristine. Pool and grounds were well maintained. We had several small maintenance issues during our stay, but staff seemed fairly responsive. We would probably stay again.

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

A nice penthouse with plenty of space for a family of 6. Every bedroom has a balcony, although only the master has the ocean view. Things to know before you stay: beachfront directly in front of property does not allow umbrellas and chairs as it is serviced by a rental company. Condo could use a few upgrades and fine tuning to make it 5 star, for example dishes are a hodgepodge, washer and dryer are quite old, we purchased and left multiple hangers for renters to use as there were only 10, toilets looked old(although they were clean), some of the furniture was broken and the stereo system didn't work and there weren't any instructions on how to use it, wifi was EXTREMELY SLOW. It was very nice to have the extra ice maker, and all appliances were updated. Also, comes with a 2 car garage, which was nice to store all our beach stuff in instead of our room. This condo is in the PERFECT location to many things Destin has to offer.
