Silver Shells is beautiful, this unit is okay

  • 3 of 5

We stay at Silver Shelss every year and always in the St. Marteen building.

This unit has a nice view of the ocean and is comfortable. Comparing with the other units, things to note: the kitchen is fairly well stocked but appliances are dated. There is not an ice maker in the refrigerator but we just bought bags of ice. The walls are in need of paint, there are places where you can see the wall was patched but not repainted. The master bedroom does not have furniture to use for storing your clothes; the closet is the only option. We are more interested in location than luxury, so this unit met our needs and we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: We have started doing some remodeling, we are planning on replacing the appliances, hopefully this Fall. We replaced the master bedroom furniture this last week. Remodeling takes a little time. It is difficult, because we have to order most of the item and have to travel from AZ to be there when they arrive. We have had a difficult time obtaining what we need in Destin. However, Destin is a great vacation spot.

Great Vacation

A great place to stay. There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room. Great view of the ocean. We will definitely be back next year.

Henderson Beach Pearl

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location! Excellent service! Excellent amenities! I will stay here every year; keep my week reserved for a life time! We have stayed at other condos in this area but this one has them all beat! Well stocked kitchen, beautiful large balcony and could see our umbrella from the unit along with the white sands and blue green waters. Breath taking view! Large bedrooms and living area. We loved the workout facilities; cardio room and separate free weight workout room and tennis courts. We also enjoy being next to Henderson Beach with the mile long all natural beach where sea turtles lay their eggs and crabs run wild. So much fun!

Not a good experience

  • 1 of 5

I rented this property for a long weekend with my family for the Easter holiday. The overall layout of the condo is nice. The reason why I am giving the property a poor is upon arrival to the property we noticed that the unit was hot. We turned down the AC unit in the hopes to get the condo cooled down. Unfortunately unknown to us the AC unit was broken I had to contact the owner who asked me to contact our point of contact at the property to get this issue resolved it was unfornuate that the owner could not have been more involved and instead made us feel like this was our problem to deal with since he does not live in the area. It took over two days for this problem to be resolved, so for a 4 day vacation we did not have AC for two of the days, though we rented the property thinking all of this would be in working order. I had to request to have the owner contact to discuss our concerning with no working AC he should have contacted us out of courtesy as their renters since we were inconvienced during our stay. My parents are in their 70's and I am 7 months pregnant so a unit with out working AC was a huge issue for us during our stay. In talking with the owner about the issues he was not very helpful and did not offer us any type of reduction in rental payment considering that we had to deal with this issue and make ourselves avaialble to the repair people he basically said we were lucking to be getting the unit fixed so quickly considering he could shop around and get other quotes and a cheaper rate to fix the AC. Unfortunate that on a vacation I had to help take care of another persons business. As a rental property owner myself this is not way that you conduct business with your renters.

Owner's Response: This was a very unfortunate surprise for us. We had to have the whole unit replaced and took the first AC company who could replace it as soon as possible so we would not inconvenience guests. I'm very sorry they were inconvenienced for 2 days. This was very much a hardship for us as well. There should not be any further issues with the AC as we replaced the unit with a new $7000 AC system.

Great Playcation!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful five week escape from the unyielding winter of 2015. Location and view were perfect, with the white sand replacing snow and crashing waves lulling us to sleep each night. Amenities, particularly the tennis courts, were ideal for our active lifestyle, with indoor areas providing options when weather ( often cool or foggy) was not Florida-like. Kitchen was adequately outfitted, and was also nice to occasionally cookout on the community gas grills. Emerald clear gulf water was refreshing, with hot tub soothing after long days of play. Property is very secure and winter residents/snow birds friendly towards new seasonal neighbors. Highlight of unit is the large, wide wrap around deck which can be used during most weather conditions.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful stay in Destin! This condo fit our needs perfectly! We enjoyed our daughter, son in law and 18 month old grandson sharing this condo with us. The king sized bed was very comfortable, with a topper and nice linens. We spent most of our time at the beach, but had plenty of room to relax in the condo. Would love to live there year round! The check in was easy, as was checking out. The owner was a pleasure during our contact about the rental details.
