Beautiful Area

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this condo the month of February. Condo had great layout and can accommodate a large number of guests, but needs a little updating especially the carpets and mattresses, tile work in shower floors. Owner was very kind and did have carpets cleaned in bedrooms after our arrival and did state it was to have been completed before our arrival. However, the back bedroom especially needs replaced perhaps because of service entry in this bedroom. Back bedroom with coded service entrance had no inside lock which met it could be opened by staff personnel at any time. Notice would be given if work had to be completed by day or week, but no exact time, so service personnel could walk in at any time. Depending where you were in condo you might not hear them knock and enter. That being said, the complex was wonderful, views from balcony beautiful, pleasant staff. Kitchen was well supplied if you wanted to cook. Condo over all was clean. Overall enjoyed our stay, loved shopping, local restuarants and ocean view. The only reason we were happy to leave were relief from backaches.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the comment by our guest. I would like to clarify several points: 1- The condo was completely updated two years ago and the bedding was changed at that time. Firmness of mattresses is a matter of personal preference by the guest. 2- The back door, has in fact a lock from inside, but as it is common in hotels and resorts, the housekeeping and security have access to the back door as they are not allowed to use the front door/elevator.The housekeeping only comes in after the guests have checked out or have requested extra cleaning, security uses the back door only in cases of emergency. Hope this clarify any misunderstanding.

Our family of 4, (2 adults, kids ages 8 & 4) stayed at Silver Shells this past October. We are from MN and were not sure what Destin had to offer (this was our 1st time to the beach with kids) and were amazed at the incredible condo and location! True to the pictures, the condo was classy, clean and includes all the amenities. We loved how family friendly & secure the building is. The elevator opened up right to the floor (a 1st for us- soo fancy!)

The weather was perfect- low 80's and hardly a cloud in the sky. Our kids loved the sugar white sandy beach- building sand castles and catching crabs! The condo had a nice variety of board games and sand castle supplies for borrowing as well! Great variety of restaurants near by including a fabulous BBQ place across the street! We enjoyed our stay soo much and plan to return again!

We have had the fortune to stay in Silver Shells many times and I can assure that this condo ranks as one of the best. The view is terrific - I don't believe there are any units that are better!! The large balcony allows great views of the Gulf and the swimming pool. The unit is well maintained and appointed and has everything you would ever need for a great vacation stay. My family had a blast as the weather was perfect and the accommodations were just as great. We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone and in fact, we will be trying to make it our place to stay on future trips to Destin.
