If Health and Fitness are a large part of your lifestyle, then you have found the place. Completely renovated Cardio room and weight room, with an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, and sauna are available for your use. Basketball court and tennis courts are complimentary. Head out to the beach and enjoy beach chair rental service. Silver Shells also has The Sandbar at the beach, for a good cold drink and lunch.

There are several restaurants in walking distance: The Back Porch, Ruth Chris, Jim & Nick's BBQ, and Hooter's. Also, the Candy Maker is open for breakfast and serves ice cream and candy until closing.

If there is not enough to do at Silver Shells, then you may want to go to the Big Kahuna or The Track. If you are into shopping, Destin Commons is just a mile or two east, and a little further is Silver Sands Outlet Mall. Recommendations for golf outings and fishing excursions are also available. As the day comes to an end, head back to a beautifully appointed, sixth floor, end unit with a beautiful view of the Gulf.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed in st lucia 601 and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The condo is so clean and comes with so many things to use at the beach. Silver shells itself is a great area. We had a great time and cant wait to go back.

SilverShells St. Lucia unti 601 was the perfect get away to the beach. The property is very spacious, offers excellent views for when you are indoors looking out onto the beautiful beach, offers great pool options, and is so accessible to the beautiful beach of Destin! I enjoyed the gym and was able to get a fantastic massage in at the Spa onsite, which I highly recommend. The property also offers tennis courts, basketball courts, and has a few restaurant options just a few steps form the entrance of the property. One restaurant is right on the beach! If you enjoy beach getaways and don't want the hassle of having to drive to and from a property and the beach- stay at this property. It has it all- comfort, luxury, convenience, amenities and outstanding beach views!

We all wanted to let you know your condo is beautiful, spacious, and the furnishings are top notch! The entire crew had 7 nights of the best sleep because the bedding, which was by far: the best! We DID NOT want to leave because it was starting to feel like home to us. We had easy access to the beach and the grounds of Silver Shells was impecable. We had a couple of issues, but were quickly resolved - the maintenance crew as well as the staff at Silver Shells were extremely nice. The beach service and staff were very accomodating and helpful to us during our entire stay on the beach.
Again, we had an AWESOME time and are looking forward to going back!!!

Every aspect of our visit was wonderful. I love the corner condo - such beautiful and relaxing views. Everyone we came in contact with on the property was friendly and helpful. The condo had every amenity that my home has. I cant say enough about this great vacation spot. I would recommend this property to anyone that is wanting a fun and/or relaxing vacation. The condo was easy to get to, near many places to dine and shop, and maintained in an excellent manner.We are so pleased that this "home away from home" was available to us for this busy week.

Silver Shells St. Lucia
Silver Shells was a very well maintained property, a good bit of painting and cleaning was being done on the exterior during our stay. The lobby, pools, grounds,etc were very attractive and the property is in a convenient location, several restaurants and even a Walmart are very close. This particular condo was even nicer than it looked in the pictures, very clean, high quality, everything you need is there. The owner was very helpful. Would love to return soon!

Repeat renter
This was our fourth stay at Silver Shells and our third stay in the this condo. It is perfect for our family of four plus my parents. We had rain almost every day and luckily there were kids games and puzzles stashed in the closet. When we were able to go to the beach, we were able to use beach chairs and beach towels the condo provides. The kitchen has anything you may need. The washer and dryer are great because I don't have to pack much for my family. The condo has always been super clean with plenty of towels. The outside deck was used alot. It was great for morning coffee or for reading. The condo is close to grocery shopping, the outlets, and many dining options. We will definitely stay here again and again.

Great Family Vacation
We had a wonderful time staying in this condo. It was beautiful, clean and well stocked. The Silver Shells amenities are wonderful. We loved the multiple pools, hot tubs, playground, and beach access. We walked to dinner one night, and everything you can ever want is within a short drive. Our whole family had a blast. We look forward to returning!

Amazing View!! The beds in this place are Amazing, most vacation home beds are so/so, these beds felt like we were sleeping on clouds. So nice to have a good night sleep on vacation. Love the beach, the pool was great too. Walked over and had quick affordable breakfast at the shop across the street/parking lot.
Stayed: April 2015 Submitted: June 7, 2015

Great place for larger families!
Everything about this unit was great. The pics set perfect expectations about the interior of the condo. While briefly talking with the owner before our trip, she let me know of a potential problem with the AC unit. There was absolutely no problem while we were there and I thought it was very respectable and courteous to let us know.

Overall, there are a couple of cosmetic upgrades needed but nothing to complain about. My 4 young kids, wife, and I would definitely recommend staying at 601 St. Lucia. Great owners. Great location. Great property.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why Sunday To Sunday instead of Saturday to Saturday?
A: Most units in Destin are Saturday to Saturday. That means everyone is leaving and arriving on the same day and traffic is horrible. If you have been in traffic all day and most likely delayed you are generally arriving frustrated. Travel on Sundays takes all that away. A much more relaxing way to start you long awaited vacation! This also takes the stress off of cleaning crews and they actually do better.
Q: Why only week rentals in the summer?
A: If we have a rental that is a Thursday to a Monday we have holes in the schedule and it makes it hard to fills those day. Let's be honest! We need the revenue to keep our condo up to date and fresh. We love our beach home and hope you will too.
