The Resort at Silver Shells has it all:

This nicely decorated unit has lots of added touches throughout. Neutral colors, accented with browns and blues, has a relaxed feel. The unit has a hint of a West Indies flair which provides a casual but elegant place to relax and enjoy the view. Located in the St. Croix Tower on the sixth floor (unit 604) the views are spectacular.

The ocean is seen while sitting on the couch or relaxing in the master suite. One balcony looks on the pool and beach while the second balcony looks directly onto the tennis and basketball courts. The views are NOT obstructed by other Silver Shells' Towers. All you see is sunrises, sunsets, the beach, the ocean, the lagoon pool and the landscaped green space. One could not ask for a more pleasing, relaxing setting.

The unit is designed to welcome families. There are four TVs, three DVD players, four VCR players and a Bose Sound System. Numerous lamps are located throughout the unit for those who love to read.

The large green space located between the lagoon pool and the beach is a great place for kids to play. They can climb on the playground equipment, throw a football or just run around in a safe area.

I own a pool-side cabana (MC-2) which may be available to rent at a discounted rate when available. The cabana is the perfect place for children to get out of the sun, watch TV or a movie, eat their lunch or take a well deserved nap. The adults can join the kids and take a break or sit just outside the cabana. Here they can enjoy the sun, the pool and the spa while keeping a watch full eye on the kids. VIEW THE SILVER SHELLS WEB SITE FOR A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THIS FABULOUS RESORT.

The unit has a great floor plan. The spacious living/dining room accomodates large groups while the two balconies provide quieter settings. Both balconies have patio furniture so one can see the kids at the pool or watch them play basketball or tennis. The bedrooms are spaced so that everyone enjoys a good nights sleep.

About Diane

My husband and I and our three grown children enjoy every visit to Silver Shells Beach Resort and Spa. It is a wonderful resort for all ages. Someday we hope to bring grandchildren to this condo to make lasting memories for the next generation of our family.

Diane purchased this condo in 2003

Why Diane chose Destin

I fell in love with Silver Shells the moment I stepped through the condo's front door. The lush greenery, the beautiful Destin water and the huge lagoon pool made me feel like I was on a tropical island. I have never lost the excitement of stepping through the door of this condo and seeing the spectacular view.. Located on the 6th floor, the views are perfect whether standing in the kitchen, eating in the dining room or resting in the master bedroom or the living room. I visit the beach for its beauty and tranquility and I have never been disappointed.

I love the idea that the kids can eat at the Sandbar or walk to the Back Porch Restaurant or Ruth Chris Steak House. I can enjoy my vacation because everyone in my group can do as they please and feel safe and at the same time.

What makes this condo unique

Silver Shells is located in the heart of Destin just a mile from the Big Kahuna water park and 3 miles from the Commons shopping and movie complex. The Silver Sands outlet mall about 5 miles away is large and has all your favorite stores. The Destin area has many wonderful restaurants. There is always something to do. .

Perfect Location for a Family Getaway-Most Enjoyable Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights for spring break with 2 teens and had an exceptional vacation. As first time travellers to Silver Shells we were impressed with variety of amenities available. Our travel party consisted of 3 "Moms" and two teens and this condo fit the bill of meeting everyone's needs. The condo was clean, spacious with excellent views of not only the lagoon pool, the ocean/beach but also the tennis/basketball courts, spa and fitness facilities. We could spy on the kids at ALL TIMES!

Silver Shells Beach Resort and Spa is an excellent choice for families traveling with teens. There are plenty of on-site amenities to keep them busy as well as near by restaurants and attractions that are walkable if desired. Our teens enjoyed days at pool, beach days with kayak and paddle board rentals, work-outs in the well equipped gym as well as walks for frozen yogurt and to the nearby mini-golf and go-carts. As mom's we enjoyed morning coffee from our balcony, beautiful views of the ocean, relaxing with drinks by the Oceanside bar w/live music, spa days, restaurants with great seafood and trips to Seaside for some fun shopping. Overall this location was perfect for everyone!

We loved our cozy condo and found it to have a bit of a Golden Girls feel (which we loved-it was decided that I am Dorothy). The layout allows for ample privacy and space for everyone. Working with the owner and Compass Resorts was EASY and hassle free.


* Great location

* Good variety of amenities-so much to do!

* Good security

* Well equipped, cozy condo (We hated to leave)

* Awesome views

* Gorgeous white sand beach

*Location near great restaurants, shopping (Visit Seaside) and the harbor (Take a Charter Fishing Trip so FUN! We caught a 7ft SHARK!!)



*Family centered vacation. While this is what we were looking for, if I was travelling with adults only this might not be my first choice. LOTS of families with children.

* Beach chair rental is a bit expensive (We however didn't mind as the young man working the rental booth was ADORABLE and we found that alone to well worth the $$)

*Carpet and rugs in the condo and whole condo complex were a bit dirty. This is to be expected due to the nature of condo rentals. We were not put off by this but do recommend a good carpet shampoo and throw rug replacement.

Truly one of the best spring break vacations we have had!

Perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five nights and have no complaints. This condo has everything you can ask for! Huge, oceanfront balcony, and the a balcony on the opposite side (city view), therefore each room has an access to a balcony! Lots of seating space such as chairs and sofas.

The condo is great and truly makes you feel like home! Owners are wonderful people, they were able to extend our stay at our request..!

If you're new to Silver Shells resort, be ready to face a lot of on-site policies. Almost all enter-exit doors in the building (at St. Croix at least), require a card to be open, which is not very convenient when your hands are full with beach umbrella, chairs, baggage, etc.,. Tents are not allowed at the beach, but you can have your umbrella as long as it placed behind their's. Pool and Jacuzzi closed at 10pm.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying at the same condo!!!

Owner's Response: Vladimir, Thank you for taking the time to let me know you have a great time at the beach. The views are fantastic and this is what most guest are looking for when they book a beach vacation along with the sun and sand.. Comfort and relaxation are my number one goal for guest. The upgraded security is a little incomveniet however I want my guest to have full use of our amenities without having to work around individuals not staying at the resrot. The new secrity has cut down on the use of our resort by those staying at other locations. You were great to work with. I was so glad I could extend your stay as the weather was perfect last week and another day was just what your group needed. Enjoy the remainder of your summer and come back to the beach any time. I love returning guest who enjoy our Silver Shells Resort..

I just spent the most wonderful days relaxing at the Silver Shells Beach Resort in a St Croix condo.

The condo was beautifully decorated with great art and attractive furnishing. The view from the living room of the giant pool and ocean is incredible. The large unit has plenty of bedrooms to accommodate many guest.

The unit was so inviting I could have stayed there forever! The resort has many amenities such as beach chairs to rent, many tables and loungers by the pool and a great restaurant on the grounds. The unit has two balconies so you can enjoy different views of the property. Of course tennis and other activities are located there as well. I plan to return to this property often with my family or on a girls trip. You really should try this property. You will not want to leave.

Awesome Thanksgiving vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautiful and the view from the deck was amazing. It overlooks the beautiful pool and the ocean! There was plenty of room for all 5 of us. The staff at the resort were so nice and helpful. The only thing I would suggest is that you bring beach chairs. There were none provided by the condo owner and you have to rent them from the resort. The cost is $25 for 2 chairs all day. That wasn't so bad, but they kicked us out of the chairs at 4:30 every day and one of our favorite parts was sitting on the beach and watching the sunset. Other than that, I can't find anything else to complain about. We had a great vacation.
