About the property

St. Croix at Silver Shells 0301 Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

While a vacation can’t change your life completely there is one thing a stay at Destin State of Mind can change- gloomy outlooks begin to transform into sunny optimism. While lounging on the 30 foot private balcony, looking out past the spacious pool deck surrounded by tropical palm trees and onto the emerald waves rolling in, guests begin to feel a sensation that is particular to being in Destin- serenity.

This three bedroom, three bathroom beachfront condo at Silver Shells offers guests the rare opportunity to have deeded access to the whitest sand beaches in the world on the exterior while enjoying the calming coastal decor scheme and many upgrades in the cool interior. Travertine tile floors; a granite and stainless steel kitchen; and a giant luxury bathroom in the Primary suite combined with conveniences like a washer/dryer, smart TVs and high-speed elevators add another level tranquility to the already peaceful Destin air.

Guaranteed to brighten any mood are the fantastic Silver Shells amenities. An exceptionally large lagoon pool with a hot tub and kiddie pool are just beyond the balcony; a seasonally-open tiki bar with live music sits quaintly on Silver Shell’s private beach; plus a playground, a grilling area and the famous Ruth's Chris Steak House (well known for its live music and happy hours) are also on the property. Moreover, Destin State of Mind is within walking distance of dozens of beach shops, restaurants and stores and is only a short drive from several award-winning golf courses.

We require a minimum length of stay during the summer and over holidays.
We do not rent to anyone under 25 or to students

Guests receive a welcome kit with small dishwasher detergent, dish soap, sponge, a roll of paper towels, and laundry detergent. There will be an initial trash liner in each receptacle and a set of toilet paper and soaps for each bathroom provided. Guests will need to replenish supplies for longer stays.

the whole family enjoyed our stay!

Jaimie F.


Our whole family greatly enjoyed our stay. The condo is very clean and spacious, and conveniently located just above ground level with gorgeous views of the lagoon pool and ocean. The pool was comfortably warm, and we also used the indoor pool and hot tub located directly behind the building when it rained one day. There are tennis and pickleball courts, and a basketball court. The beach is absolutely beautiful and has chairs and umbrellas for rent, and a tiki bar is right on the beach. The lobby is very pretty if you want to sit and relax with a cocktail. Overall we were very impressed and would be happy to come back!

excellent stay!

Brooke K.


The condo fit 4 adults and 4 small children comfortably. Excellent location with a short walk to the beach! Beach bar was convenient. Kids and adults enjoyed the large pool. They provided one laundry detergent, two dish detergent packets and enough coffee to make one pot. No seasonings/salt/pepper. It was enough to get us started but wanted to add to this review so others will know what to expect. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return!

great week in destin

Darla S


Very pleased with the condo and facility in general. Host provided all necessary codes in advance for seamless access upon arrival. Pool area well maintained. Loved the little bar at the beach area. Cost to rent beach umbrella with 2 chairs was $65 for a day, and they put them away around 5 pm. Just an FYI. Would absolutely stay here again.

Our first stay at Silver Shells, a bit worried about the distance from the condo to pool and beach, deceaving from the photos, but it was super easy to move about the property and very short walk to beach. The Condo was clean, spacious, storage/closet space was incrediable! parking and luggage carts were always avail. The property site is very well secured, and maintained. Dont leave home without your key card! The pool was perfect, never over crowded for our family and 5 yr old. The beach bar with beach service was a treat!! Only disadvntage to this unit, it did not come with beach chair service and or cabana, that would have been the icing on the cake. A bit tiring to haul all our chairs and beach needs everyday. We will select a unit with both next time. One suggestion, we did find our mattresses were very firm/hard, updating those would help a lot, but Otherwise a nice unit.

Condo was spacious and clean. The property was very well maintained and simply beautiful. We had a wonderful stay. Had a small problem with access on the first day. Response from property management was quick and easily resolved. We also tried the on-site spa. Also highly recommended.

My family and I have agreed that this was the best vacation we have had in a very long time. We stayed in the St. Croix building, unit 301, and it was perfect for us. The unit was nice and clean and the bedrooms were larger than what we were expecting them to be. The views from the balcony we awesome. We cannot wait to spend time there again. Thanks, Tony

The condo was perfect for our family of 5. The kids loved the swimming pool and we appreciated that the large pool started at 3 feet deep so all the kids could touch and be in the big pool. Being right on the beach was ideal as well. We will return for sure!

Submitted on Sep 19, 2021 through Airbnb



What an amazing Condo! The Condo was very clean and spacious and had a very well stocked kitchen full of modern appliances. The view from the balcony of the Ocean and pool was spectacular, with lots of chairs and lounge chairs to sit in. The pool was very big, with waterfalls, and the grounds with all of the palm trees and flowers made it feel more like Hawaii than Florida. And after a long travel day to get there it was very nice to simply walk down to the Sand Bar Tiki Bar to get a nice cool drink. The Rum Runner was our favorite! And was even more amazed the next day while sitting in my beach chair to find out that they walk down to the beach to serve you as well! Overall great experience on this vacation!

Great Condo and Location. Condo was spacious and clean with 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths and full kitchen. Our Balcony over looked the amazing private pool and beach. The complex is safe and secure with private gated parking. Elevators for easy access to garage, condo, and pool. Location was fantastic with easy access to entertainment, restaurants and shopping. Highly recommend.

serenity at the beach!

Lisa K.


The property was absolutely lovely. The kitchen was nicely stocked, could have used some of the basic spices - salt & pepper. Plenty of space for the five of us in the living areas and comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and equipped with the basic necessities. The balcony off of the living room and master bedroom had amazing views of the pool and gulf. The proximity to our favorite restaurant The Back Porch was right next door! This was a wonderful )

Nice condo. Check in was a bit confusing, and parking not clear (outside vs garage). Could have been cleaner. Great amenities in the complex.

We’re sorry to hear there were cleaning issues. We always strive to make sure every condominium is spotless for each guest's arrival. We encourage our guests to contact us if there is an issue.

destin fun!

Tammy K.


The condo was very spacious for our family of 4. It overlooked the pool, which was nice to see our teens swimming while still in the room. I feel it could have been cleaner. The counters had crumbs remaining from previous guests and the floors were sandy and also food crumbs. I literally had to vacuum the whole condo the first day. We enjoyed the pool and the beach, and felt safe knowing not just anybody could get into the resort. We truly enjoyed watching the Live band play Thursday -Sat night at The Sand Bar and the cocktails were so yummy!!! So fun! We would absolutely stay there again!
