Beautiful Property, Worry-Free Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Silver Shells was a beautiful resort and all of the common areas were very well-maintained. The condo itself was gorgeous and had everything we needed for our week. The beach was just a short walk away. The umbrella and chair rentals were worth the price we paid for the week as they were set up and reserved for us every day. Having a washer and dryer in the condo was a plus. The condo owner was extremely responsive when we had questions. Shopping, food and fun of all sorts were a very short drive away. Overall, we had an amazing time in an amazing place!

The condo was fantastic. And even though it was not directly on the beach it was still great. However the charge for umbrella and two chairs per day to sit on beach was atrocious.

At condos in Panama City Beach they come with the room. In addition please work on your cable service. Had no TV in main room for most of week

Owner's Response: Robert, I’m sorry that you feel that the cost for the beach service was so high. Unfortunately, owners have no control over this service. As for the fact that they come with the room in Panama City, this may be the case in some rentals there (as they are in some rentals in Destin, as well); however, the cost of the umbrella and chairs are included in a higher rental rate for the condo. Also, if I had known that you were having problems with the cable/tv in the living room, I would have either walked you through the problem or had someone from the cable company take care of it. I spoke to you the night that you arrived to make sure that everything was satisfactory and asked you to call me at anytime if you had any questions or issues. I didn’t hear one word from you the whole week. When I followed up with you via text the folllowing Friday night prior to your departure, you responded back that everything had been great and even mentioned that you would probably want to return next fall and rent our condo again. You didn’t mention anything about the issues mentioned in your review. Jim White

We loved this condo.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed or stay at your condo one of the best ones we've stayed at. Very nicely updated and has everything you would need for your family vacation with a great view to top it off. Very pleasant owners to talk to and check on everything during your stay. We look forward to visiting this unit again.

Great condo! Very clean and well maintained. Had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained and beautiful. The condo we rented was great! Loved that it was so close to Back Porch and the Candy Store. The staff for the jet ski rentals and water park rental were very pleasant and helpful. The staff at the Sand Bar(Tiki Bar) and the Beach Chair rentals were not overly helpful, they were very accommodating to Property Owners but not to Guests of the property.

First time to Destin. My family loved it, other than the drive, lol. The condo was one of the nicest places we have stayed in our 19 years of marriage.
