Oceanfront escape w/shared pool, hot tub, & private cabana - ocean views

Sun-soaked days and tropical ocean breezes are waiting for you at this oceanfront Destin condo. Boasting views of the coastline and the beach from the wrap-around balcony, as well as easy beach access and a shared pool, this upscale condo will host up to eight guests in style. This is the perfect spot to unwind and let yourself slip into vacation mode in a tropical style.

Perched right on the beach in the St Maarten building at Silver Shells Resort, this retreat promises to make your stay stress-free. Spend your days strolling along the sun-kissed beach or enjoying the grounds at the Henderson Beach State Park. Additionally, you’ll have access to your very own private cabana! It features an inviting, nautical interior decor, air conditioning for those hot, summer days, a comfortable sofa-bed (in case you or the kids would like to take a refreshing nap), and a kitchenette equipped with a mini-fridge to hold your snacks. This lovely cabana is also just a stone’s throw away from the pool, which means you won’t have to go back to your rental to get some snacks or rest!

Wake up with a light breakfast out on the deck to start your day with stunning views. Use the semi-private elevator, which opens directly into the unit, to head down to the beach or snag a spot by the pool to lounge in the warm sun. Silver Shells Resort has an indoor and outdoor pool, on-site spa, on-site steak and seafood restaurant, beachside bar, and more. Back in the condo, the private washer/dryer will do the laundry while you enjoy the central A/C. Surf Netflix and over a hundred cable channels on the 75-inch flatscreen or break out the board games while the free WiFi streams some background music. Later, whip dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, then enjoy a few quiet moments in the master bathroom's soaking tub.

Reward yourself with a memorable getaway filled with postcard-perfect views and beachside adventures when you book your trip to this oceanfront Destin condo! A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

Excellent venue for a family vacation!
Melinda Y. Jul 2020
We loved our stay in this beautifully decorated condo. It had plenary of room for three moms, 3 teens and one 20 year old. We would definitely stay here again.
Terri C. Jun 2020
We enjoyed our stay - great amenities, fantastic location, updated decor and most importantly, comfortable beds! The balcony was perfect, offering shade all throughout the day for morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail. We will definitely be back to 1208 St. Maarten!!

However; be prepared to purchase your own paper products as there were only one paper towel and one tissue for each bathroom which didn’t last but one day. It was difficult trying to find tissue to purchase during these times amid COVID19.

Lovely property with incredible views! Can’t wait to go back!
Kathleen S. Oct 2019
Great location, clean and plenty of amenities for the young ones. Loved the cabana even though we didn't use it too much. One thing we would have liked to have was an outdoor grill. We will definitely rent again in the future.
Manager response:
Thank you for providing your feedback, Kathleen! We are glad this location suited you so well. Please note, there are several outdoor grills available on the lanai level in each building, and we are sorry you overlooked this amenity. We hope you’ll return to enjoy all the amenities this lovely oceanfront condo has to offer!

Good view
Todd H. Oct 2019
It was clean, well stocked, spacious, great location. We loved everything about it. Can’t imagine not having the cabana with beach chairs and sand toys to carry- that was a lifesaver! Thank you for sharing your incredible place with us.

We loved our stay at 1208 St Maarten very much! The owners have decorated the entire unit beautifully and spared no expense with comfort and convenience. If we weren’t on the beach, we were in the unit because it was such a treat! The furniture on the balcony as well as the big screen TV are great examples of how the owners have provided the finest for their guests. We certainly appreciate all that you have done & we hope that we took as good of care of it as you do!

Very clean and well maintained. Thanks for the new coffee maker!
Annette S. Sep 2019
We enjoyed the pool and beach areas. Really liked the convenience of the cabana that came with the condo. The condo itself was okay. Kitchen was not very well equipped. Had to clean dishes before using as some had dried on food. For the price you’d think a single roll of paper towels would be included. The coffee maker didn’t work well and had to be unplugged to turn off after each use. The condo could use a good cleaning especially the floors. Bare feet and socks turned black with dirt quickly. Carpets in bedroom dirty. Dining table was sticky even after being wiped off. We were contacted by Vacasa the day of check in (Saturday) to ask if someone could come clean the rug in the living room on Monday. We declined and asked if they could do it after our rental dates. Upon entering the condo at check in we saw the rug was maybe 8x10. It seems if checkout is 11am and check in is at 4pm that would allow plenty of time to clean a small rug. No need to interrupt a renter. It was an okay condo, not as nice as most we’ve rented. Looked better in pictures.
Manager response:
Hi, Annette! The coffee maker has been replaced, and we were unable to book a vendor to clean the carpet on such short notice when the stains were found after the guest prior to you had departed. A deep clean is scheduled, and we apologize we missed stocking paper towels for your stay. Thank you!

We loved everything about this rental. Location was amazing, access to our room and the beach was outstanding and the view from our room breathtaking. A wonderful place to make family memories.
Robin R. May 2019
My family had a great time in Destin! The grandbabies enjoyed the big pool and playing on the beach. The Cabana was a great added bonus and convenient. The condo was well equipped and Beautifully decorated. We will definitely stay again at 1208!
Jen H. May 2019
We loved our stay here! The condo was so big and cozy and decorated perfectly for a beach vacation. We loved the spacious living room and deck. The view was fantastic and the beach and water were so worth the 11 hour drive. Beds were all super comfy and clean. Master bath shower was huge! Having the cabana to use right next to the pool and beach access has spoiled us for any future beach visits! So nice having somewhere to store chairs and floats and toys instead of having to carry them up to room and piling them up in the entry way. Will definitely try to stay here again!
Jennifer D. Mar 2019
This condo was absolutely fantastic!! The condo itself is beautifully decorated, clean, and has plenty of entertainment for kids. Also the cabana by the pool is extremely convenient!!!
We’ve stayed at St. Marteen several times. Enjoyed them all but, Can’t wait to rebook this one!!!
Todd C. Jan 2019
Location and view were fantastic! Three bedroom and three bath with updated decor and amenities were perfect. Access was wonderful with convenient parking and private elevator. The private pool cabana was just a few steps from the beach.
raymond s. Nov 2018
Coastal decor to match the view...spacious and comfortable bedding. Nice TV’s for holiday games!
Jackie K. Nov 2018
easy access to beach and pool, cabana, comfortable furniture
Nancy B. Nov 2018
The condo was nicely laid out and adequately furnished. The porch is oriented for a fantastic view of the gulf but protection from the winds, so it's ideal. The kitchen did not have any additional trash bags nor any of the basics such as aluminum foil or saran wrap. It just would have been nice to know ahead of time. Also, you must pay to rent the required beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach.
Jessica O. Sep 2018
We loved everything about our stay--beautiful condo & gorgeous view. The elevator to our room and the cabana made were awesome! We definitely plan on coming back!
MONICA A. Sep 2018
Wonderful property, can't wait o come back!
Keri W. Aug 2018
This condo is absolutely beautiful. Very clean and such a great place to spend a week away from home at. We will definitely be looking forward to our next stay here!
Michelle S. Aug 2018
Condo is beautifully decorated and spacious. The laundry room is helpful to store items out of the way. Weather did not cooperate but watched movies from the condo collection on the very large tv! Cabana was a plus as we could leave our beach chairs and other beach items downstairs and have our own fridge and bathroom close to the pool. Highly recommend this condo.
Darlene F. May 2018
This condo is very nicely decorated, and is very comfortable for six people. We didn't cook much, so I can't rate the kitchen appliances, but the coffee maker was good. Nice walk to the beach, and the pool was very nice. Entering and exiting the resort took some getting used to, but became very easy.
Laureen F. May 2018
Wonderful accommodations, beautiful view of the gulf and Destin from the expansive deck. Pool cabana was very convenient.
Wesley H. May 2018
This condo was decorated very nice and the beds and other furniture were very comfortable. The views from the balcony were beautiful and has a fantastic sunset view as well. Would definitely stay in this condo again!!

Karen P. Apr 2018
