“Most awesome location to vacation”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2016

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!

Owner's reply: Thank you for such a great review! We are thrilled you enjoyed all of the amenities Silver Shells offer!

“Awesome Week of Fun in the Sun!”

Owner Supplied Testimonials

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!!!
