About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Beautiful Third-Floor View of the Gulf of Mexico. This property has nice tennis courts available for all guest. Also the beach service is provided by

the ever famous George. This is a very family oriented property with a huge lawn area and a very large beach area. The landscaping is also

very nice. This is one of those rare places where everybody knows your name. It is very safe for children. You will love it. I promise.

Also they have a wonderful snow bird program. Fall and winter in Destin is the best! The restaurants are not so crowded and the weather is wonderful!

We have a nice balcony off of both the master bedroom and the living area. There is a grilling area right below our balcony.

The property was perfect. Family friendly and George was fabulous. We will be back next year as we would like this to be our spot for our family vacation. Our kids are 5 and 3.5. They had a blast

We had a great stay in this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this condominium and would stay there again. It is roomy, with the feel of home. It has a great view of the pool and bbq area and an ocean view, with direct access to the beach. It was very easy to communicate with the owner. It's centrally located to everything in, Destin, and most importantly to me as a Mom, the complex is very quiet and has a safe feel to it. 😃

We loved Silver Dunes

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing vacation in Destin. We really loved Silver Dunes. The inside pictures accurately portray this unit, (the palm trees have grown so the balcony view is a little obstructed). The price was very reasonable. We liked the small complex and private, less crowded beach. We enjoyed the grassy area between the two buildings. The pool was very warm and enjoyable. It is in a prime location. We liked being able to walk to Chick-fil-a and Shake’s Frozen Custard; Merlin’s pizza was delicious and very reasonable.

We have traveled to South Carolina and other beaches in the past and Destin is by far the prettiest beach. We loved the clear water and the white sand, which did not burn our feet. We had great beach chair service by George at reasonable cost. All of the staff at Silver Dunes were very friendly, from Susie at the desk to the security guards at the gate.

The only disappointment was the busy 98 highway on which the complex sits. Traffic is non-stop and traffic laws are not obeyed or enforced. We were almost hit multiple times while trying to cross the street, (in broad daylight and in a cross-walk). Destin needs to add more cross-walks or enforce traffic laws before someone is seriously injured or killed.

We were surprised to find that the sofa bed was broken by a note left on the refrigerator, but the air mattress worked out okay. This condo was not as updated as other condos in the complex, but is priced accordingly.

Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us, 2 adults and 4 teenagers. There was plenty of room. We were very close to the pool. 5 minute walk, if that, to the ocean. The property leads right onto the beach so I was never worried about the kids walking there. George, the beach service guy, was amazing. The water was perfect. The beach impeccably clean. Top notch. Back in the condo, there was every type of pots and pans, including muffin pans! Coffee pot/blender. Everything was used. We brought our own groceries and were able to cook full meals every night and eat at the table. There were board games there too, which we didn't discover until the last night there, but we thought that was really cool. There were several light bulbs out, but that did not concern us. There were no hangers in our master closet (not sure about the other room) but that's not a huge deal either for us. Next time we will just bring hangers. But I can't get over how much seating there was and how comfortable we all were in this condo. Also, the security guard was very awesome and personable. We have definitely saved this listing so we can go back again.

Silver Dunes is in the heart of Destin. Its location is close to some of the best restaurants in the area. We recommend Harbor Docks, Dewey Destins, and Cuvee's. There are so many eateries in the area. Also Silver Dunes has a beautiful lawn that leads out to the beach. The lawn area is a great place for the children to run and play. The harbor is just a couple of miles west of our condo, where one can book fishing trips and stroll around to see the daily catch.
