About Kathy Howard

Kent Hardin of Memphis, TN is owner of this property. His father and uncle were amongst the first owners of units in this complex. Kent is an avid fisherman and known around town as Captain Kent.

Kathy Howard purchased this condo in 1994

Why Kathy Howard chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Kent purchased this place from his Uncle Jabie Hardin back in the early 90s. When Opal came through and leveled the front two buildings , a complete rebuild was necessary. The balcony was expanded, bathrooms enlarged and a washer and dryer were added. In 2013, we completely redecorated the inside.

What makes this condo unique

One of the most unique features about the complex is the green lawn area between the buildings. In the evening you will find chairs pulled out in circles to talk and enjoy the view, children playing Frisbee, and people walking hand in hand down to the beautiful beach. Silver Dunes has retained its charm since the 70s and has not given way to the high rise craze. It is still a place to bring a family or friends and enjoy the ease of a walk up condo and be close enough to the beach to hear the waves lapping at the shore.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at Silver Dunes, and we plan on making this an annual trip. The location is amazing! We enjoyed sitting on the balcony which has an excellent view of the water. Another great aspect is you are right on the beach. The condo is perfect; it is clean, comfortable and accommodates up to 8 people. I can't say enough great things. Our family loves coming here!

Overall good experience.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the condo and liked that it was close to the beach. The plantation shutters in the condo were great in that we were able to easily open them to see the wonderful beach view. We will definitely plan a trip back and book this condo again.

Best in Destin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three had a wonderful time on our beach vacation in mid-May. This is one of relatively few 'low-rise' condo developments in Destin; that means this stretch of beach is less crowded, and the development is pretty quiet. Easy access to the beach and pool, an incredible view, cozy furnishings, and very clean. You are within a mile of any outside activities you would want to do. You will spend some $$ on beach chair service, but that is true everywhere in Destin, and absolutely everything else you need is included with this condo. My gratitude to the owners for sharing their little piece of beach paradise.
