Overview

Emerald Coast-Destin Area Condo Rental Photos and Description

1362 sq ft Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Luxurious large beachfront 2 BR condominium with all deluxe amenities. Free Beach service includes high quality umbrella and 2 beach chairs. High Def TV, and high speed WiFi included free. Our condo fills fast for the best dates, so email or call us now to reserve your preferred week. Stay in one of Destin's most luxurious condos. Our condo is unit 402 East. Perfect 4th Floor location! Deluxe Beachfront 2BR/2BA Condo in beautiful Destin Florida. Huge balcony with table, chairs, and lounge chair. Plenty of room to have breakfast looking at the beach. Both bedrooms directly face the beach, and have sliding glass doors accessing the balcony.

Many recent upgrades: High security digital door lock with your own personalized code, and guest safe in master suite, granite counter tops in kitchen, all new stainless kitchen appliances, porcelain tile flooring throughout the condo, fresh paint in living, dining, kitchen, and bedrooms, new Sony 46 in. high definition TV, new balcony patio furniture, new flat screen tvs in each bedroom, etc.

Both Bedrooms and Living Room have direct access to extra large balcony, and all are directly facing the beach and the Gulf of Mexico.

Perfect 4th Floor location with unlimited views East and West. This level is ideal to get a grand view of the beaches, yet not so high to lose the 'closeness' of being located right on the beach. I also think this floor is good for young families who don't want the small ones out on a 14th Floor balcony. I know it would have made me uncomfortable when ours were that small.

Relax on the ample balcony and enjoy sea breezes and breathtaking views! Have breakfast every morning watching the surf from our balcony!

Free Wifi !!!

New Sony 46' HDTV and DVD player in living room.

Complimentary Beach Service! (in season, March-October)

We accept Credit Cards and e-checks/direct deposit.

Excellent Condo - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many condos in Destin through the years and Silver Beach Towers is by far the best. This was our 2nd time at SBT Resort and will be our condo of choice in the future. The condo and property are top notch - reserved covered parking, easy access, security of the property and close beach proximity with great views (no side/angled views or views several hundred yards from beach looking across tennis courts, etc). The complimentary beach service was a big bonus and it was great to have a safe in the unit. Like many of the posts have mentioned, Gary runs a tight ship and has the check-in process streamlined...all you have to do is show up and enjoy.

Luxury Beachfront Condo as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

I booked this condo on VRBO after seeing the excellent reviews. After arriving for our vacation, the condo definitely exceeded our expectations both from the resort itself to the actual condition and layout of the unit. The layout was a little different than most 2BR condos I've rented in Destin in that both rooms connected to the patio and had views of the ocean. The furniture, tv's, appliances, etc. were all in working order and very up to date. The condo was probably one of the nicest I've stayed at in Destin (and I've stayed at several over the years).

The owner is very thorough and organized throughout the booking process and provides very clear directions that makes the process smooth. I really appreciated the extra touch of securing preferred seating at the beach prior to our arrival. The resort has about the most technically advanced beach chair system where all you have to do is scan your FOB every day and the computer announces your exact seating location. There is also a company offering kayak and paddle board rentals which was nice and convenient throughout the week.

The location is perfect in that you are within ear shot of many of the restaurants/attractions Destin has to offer. The resort sits at a traffic light which makes it easier for turning left onto the main highway (important during the busy season). I really don't have any complaints, excellent choice for anyone visiting Destin, FL.

Excellent condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Silver Beach Towers was outstanding! The condo was beautiful and well-maintained, and the view was amazing! We have rented through VRBO multiple times, and Gary has been the best owner regarding communication. He responded quickly to our questions about our stay, and he also checked-in during the week to see if we needed anything. He was incredibly helpful. We would highly recommend--everything was fantastic!

Thanks again, Gary Hankins Owner

Relaxing Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Silver Beach Towers was very refreshing in large part to our accommodations at 402E. This unit is very well done and proved comfortable for our family. Beach service and on-site management were courteous and helpful.

Views of the water and beach from this unit are tough to beat, both from the spacious outdoor balcony and inside.

We enjoyed the central location of the property and that it still felt removed from the buzz of the touristy town vibe...relaxing!

Thanks to the Hankins for sharing this gem!
