Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 9

Are you heading to the Emerald Coast in need of an "attitude adjustment"? If you need a place to clear your head and fill your soul, you'll find it at "Latitude Adjustment" located in the St. Maarten Building of the Silver Shells Resort. Located in the heart of Destin, within walking distance of some of Destin's favorite restaurants and activities, you'll find a perfectly landscaped tropical oasis, begging you to unplug your smart phone and unpack your flip-flops.

Located on the 14th floor, the building's elevator opens directly into your own, well-appointed foyer. Once you open the double doors to your condominium, your eyes will immediately be directed to the spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico and the sugar white sand beaches. This open and airy unit is decorated in warm coastal colors, matching the tropical feel of the property.

The cozy kitchen provides plenty of counter top and cabinet space, and offers both a formal dining room and breakfast bar option for meals and snacks. The open living room, while equipped with a flat screen television, is clearly focused on the view of the beach. With a spacious balcony providing plenty of seating and lounging space, you may never utilize the living room. There is, however, a sleeper sofa providing additional sleeping options.

The master bedroom is spacious, with balcony access. The master bathroom boasts a large garden tub, a separate spa shower, a nice vanity area, and plenty of closet space. The second, king bedroom has its own bathroom, balcony, and view of the beach. A third bedroom is outfitted with two twin beds and a bonus trundle, making it a perfect sleeping space for smaller guests.

For visitors looking for a change in attitude and a change in latitude, you'll find your oasis here. "Latitude Adjustment" is the perfect property for guests looking to be close to the action, right on the beach, and feel a million miles away from home.

Silver Shells is truly a world class resort and offers every amenity you could wish for - gated entry with 24/7 security, lagoon pool with hot tub and poolside cabanas, children's pool, European Spa, Ruth Chris Steakhouse, beachside Tiki Bar and Grill, playground, basketball and tennis courts, fitness center.

Terrible condo

  • 2 of 5

This condo photographs much better than its reality. Furniture is cheap and in disrepair (my husband had to take an hour of his vacation to fix a bedroom nightstand drawer whose handle came off in his hand and had to be fixed before the contents, including his wallet, could be retrieved). Construction on a new high rise condo building is going on directly in front of the deck, creating early morning wake-ups that we neither anticipated nor appreciated. The living room rug is falling apart, the stove has a burner that doesn't function, the deck was so nasty dirty my grandchildren looked like they had just come from a coal mine when they came in from playing there. The only real pluses were the elevator right to the condo, the comfortable beds, the Silver Shells property itself (although whoever decided in the design process that the best way to pool and beach is through the garage was obviously not considering traffic or use by families with toddlers), and the property management company, which tried desperately to assist us with the things that needed immediate attention. I would definitely stay at Silver Shells again, but certainly not this unit, not probably even this building, unless on the opposite side at from the obstructing building in front. In 25 years staying at Destin, this was one of the worst experiences we've ever had.

Nice condo.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was nice & well stocked. Great views except for the construction of a new condo next to the building which at the time is a little noisy during the day. Condo doesnt have a sleeper sofa so it actually accommodates 8 not 9 as advertised.

Awesome place, awesome trip. We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect view, very clean, comfy, had everything we needed for ourselves, our two boys (3&5), and our sitter. We look forward to coming back ASAP. Side note: be sure to pack your own beach towels and hair dryer, as the unit did not have these items. It had everything else you'd need, tho, including a blender, wine opener, etc. I highly recommend this condo to really enjoy Destin!

Silver Shells resort in Destin, Florida is the place to be!

  • 5 of 5

A+ rating for the views and the experience that this condo offers up. The condo was better than promised and the resort offers so many activities for adults and children alike. There are basketball courts, a pool, beach access, a tiki style lounge, great restaurants all around, and more! Our experience could not have been better. Five Star was there to help us and answer our questions through every step of the process. This quickly became our happy place!

Super Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I visited the Silver Shells Resort in Destin for a late Spring vacation and could not be happier with our experience. The views from the 14th floor condominium are breathtaking. The pictures could not do it justice! The property was well maintained and clean and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. The property is very nicely decorated and stylized, and the furniture and beds are all comfortable. The views from the master Suite are picturesque and look like something off a postcard. We even took our Christmas card photo on the private balcony! The beaches are very easily accessible and clean. The pool area has a hot tub and poolside cabanas. There is also a beachside Tiki Bar. We hope to come back to the area in summer and stay at the same property!

Silver Shells consists of five condo buildings with two gulf front and three gulf view. St. Maarten is the only gulf front condo building that allows for weekly vacation rentals (St. Croix, St. Lucia, and St. Barth's are not direct gulf front rental buildings).

Silver Shells is truly a world class resort and offers every amenity you could wish for - gated entry with 24/7 security, lagoon pool with hot tub and poolside cabanas, children's pool, European Spa, Ruth Chris Steakhouse, beachside Tiki Bar and Grill, playground, basketball and tennis courts and cardio and fitness center.
