14TH FLOOR CONDO - ST. CROIX WITH POOLSIDE CABANA SUMMER AND SNOWBIRD READY 2014

Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Silver Shells Resort is Destin’s premier vacation location directly on the Gulf of Mexico and close to all the other vacation destinations and activities in Destin. The St. Croix building presides at the center of this complex and offers an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico, white sand, and emerald waters that cannot be adequately described. You will be awestruck by the view from the 14th floor, directly below the penthouse level. Dining on the balcony for breakfast, lunch or dinner is accompanied by speakers connected to the stereo system tuner. You can enjoy your favorite CD or radio station while basking in the view of white sand and emerald waters. Bring your binoculars to watch the dolphins and boats as they navigate the crystal blue waters.

Each room has ceiling to floor sliding glass doors for easy access to the balcony. New for 2010 are light blocking drapes in each bedroom. Decorated with ease of living in mind, each room reflects a slightly different tropical theme. Colors are bright and cheerful so the day’s activities are extended into the evening hours.

The living room has, new in 2014, a wall mounted flat screen HDTV, with DVD and VHS capacity. The tuner is connected to speakers throughout the unit so all rooms can receive audio. Each room has individual controls, allowing volume setting to be personalized.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with a wall mounted TV/VHS and a DVD player so viewing from bed is comfortable. The walk in closet allows for ample storage. The master bath has Jacuzzi bath and a separate tiled shower. Newly added in 2010 are sun blocking drapes in both bedrooms

Sleeping arrangements are completed with a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and twin beds in the Gulf front bedroom. The guest room also has a wall mounted TV/VHS and a DVD player. The guest bath has a large tiled shower and full sized washer and dryer.

Your assigned parking space is next to the elevator entrance in the underground garage. A definite plus when the summer sun is in its fullest glory.

Poolside you will find a wading pool and a playground for the toddlers in your group. Pool furniture is on a first come, first serve basis and cannot be reserved - but the cabana is your special luxury for your private use while our guests. You can escape the heat of the day or store your drinks, snacks, or meals without having to run up to the condo or carry a cooler down. These are the envy of all poolside.

The cabana is air conditioned and has a microwave, TV with DVD player, a refrigerator, a half bath, and a futon couch. The table and chairs can be moved outdoors or left inside for your poolside convenience.

Look carefully at the pictures - all that's missing is YOU!

I have lived around the Destin Emerald Beach area since 1956. Traveling with my military family gave me exposure to many vacation destinations around the world - none compare to Destin for activities, food, and attractions. My desire is for your family to experience the unparalleled amenities of the Destin area and to begin your family memories here.

St. Croix at Silver Shells is a private resort. The atmosphere rivals any 'off shore' resort with the added convenience of still being in the States. We enjoy the pool and cabana to make the most of our vacation time with the least hassle. Nearby restaurants are icing on the cake since we can walk to several including Ruth's Chris right on the property.

REVIEW

  • 3 of 5
The condo was nice... Nothing super fancy but had everything we needed. We rented this particular unit because it came with cabana. Unfortunately, when we opened the door to the cabana it was completely torn up and under some sort of repair/renovation (along with all the cabanas in that section). So, while we could store our beach stuff in the cabana, it was not functional at all.

Owner's Response: Destin experienced flooding the Spring of 2014. 20 inches of rain fell in 24 hours. Renovations were arranged through contractors who did not hold to promised schedules. While very regrettable on my part, I appreciate everyone who assisted my guests in making the best of a bad situation.

GREAT PLACE TO RELAX WITH KIDS

  • 5 of 5
We felt like we were perfectly at home at this totally convenient and comfortable condo. The owners make the whole process very easy. Good alternatives for kids when it's not ideal beach weather, too. Would love to come back.

The condo was everything as listed in VRBO. Amazing view and well accessible to the Destin attractions. Very enjoyable experience for my Wife and I. We would recommend this to anyone with a small family or for a couple's trip. The cabana was a nice addition to the pool.

Owner's Response: Fall improvements include a 50" flat screen TV in the living room for those days when you want to enjoy the view in the comfort of the spacious living room. But the beach, golf, and shopping will beckon so enjoy your time in the sun. Evenings and mornings can be spent on the newly furnished balcony with bistro chairs and table.

GOOD OVERALL STAY

  • 4 of 5
The view is terrific. Having the cabana was a great help to me. I have 3 boys that like to have their toys on the beach. Since we had a lot of rain during our week, I noticed the small tvs more than I would have if the weather let us on the beach. Thankfully the room was well equipped with everything that you need. Thank you for having us and I would definitely book here again.

EXCELLENT CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo and although the weather wasn't the best (first experience with this since we come every year and the weather is always beautiful) staying in a nice condo with the cabana made things much better. Now that we've experienced having a cabana it is a must have! Great to leave your drinks and beach toys and the use of the bathroom is so nice. When it rained we sat in the cabana until it cleared up. We kept all our lunch stuff in there too. The owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area, which makes all the difference in the world. The 14th floor gives a beautiful view of the beach and pool area, plus when it's all lit up at night it's beautiful. We would stay here again and higly recommend this condo and area.

STAY AT SILVER SHELLS ST. CROIX

Beautiful place and had a great time again this year. Only complaint or suggestion we would have is to update the tvs in condo and really wish there were more bbq grills in an area with seating available.
