Property description

*THIS IS A TRUE 'RENT BY OWNER' NO SURPRISES OR HIDDEN FEES AT CHECK-IN OR CHECK-OUT.

WELCOME:
Be one of the first to discover Ariel Dunes. This Luxurious Resort has changed the skyline of Destin, not to mention raising the standards by which all Luxury Condominiums will be graded. Book early for best availability and pricing.

Why settle for less than you deserve or expect? No need to compromise your taste, enjoy this Brand New tastefully furnished and appointed two bedroom / two bath unit. You along with your family and guest will be amazed with the level of comfort and luxury assembled in this Platinum rated offering.

LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION:
Located in the Heart of the Seascape Community, Ariel Dunes is fast becoming the trademark of this Resort and the surrounding area. Being the tallest buildings in Okaloosa and Walton Counties, Ariel Dunes towers over the adjacent championship golf course and offers breathtaking views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay.

FURNISHINGS:
From the minute you enter this unit you recognized the warm and inviting finishes this unit has to offer. From the crisp elegance of the Deep Blue/Black granite counter tops in the kitchen, to the Alligator print leather recliner in the living room. You realize you have made a great destination decision.

UNIT FEATURES:
The unit features 9 ft. ceilings, ceramic tile (kitchen, baths, & laundry), plush carpeting (living, dining, and bedrooms), raised panel cabinetry (kitchen and baths), granite counter tops, and Stainless Steel kitchen appliances (GE Profile). This unit also features three 8 ft. glass panels in both the living room and master bedroom to maximize you view of the Beautiful Gulf of Mexico. This is not a common feature in all unit types.

KITCHEN HIGHLIGHTS:
The fully furnished kitchen (should you want to cook) features a 26 cf. side-by-side refrigerator equipped with filtered water and ice, ultra-quiet dishwasher, self-cleaning oven with smooth top range, and a built in microwave. To compliment these appliances the kitchen also features all utensils, plates, cookware, baking and serving dishes to bring out the Emeril in all of us. The kitchen also features a coffee maker, toaster, blender (with food processor attachment), and a garbage disposal.

DINING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS:
The dining room features a table that can be expanded to seat 8 adults comfortably, with additional seating at the built-in counter bar. You will run out of guests or family members before you will run out of seating when it is time to eat.

LIVING ROOM HIGHLIGHTS:
The living room offers a queen sleeper / sofa with custom made accent pillows that match the custom made chair & ottoman. These cozy pieces of furniture along with the alligator print leather recliner, makes watching a DVD/ movie on the 40' LCD flat panel HDTV (with surround sound) priceless family entertainment.

MASTER BEDROOM & BATH HIGHLIGHTS:
The master bedroom features a king size super plush / pillow top bed with dual side tables & lamps. With this distinctively appointed bedroom you can sense you are in a tropical paradise. This bedroom also features a 26' LCD flat panel HDTV w/DVD that sits atop a matching full length dresser with mirror. All beds (master and guest) are outfitted with the finest linens and fabrics. Enjoy the views of the Emerald Coast from the luxury of your bed, or step out on the oversized balcony through one of two 8 ft. glass sliders (living & master bedroom). Remember not all unit types have three 8 ft. glass panels (one is a slider in each section).

The master bath features a full-size stand up shower (glass enclosed), adjacent to a full-size garden tub. These features along with a huge double vanity will make getting ready that much easier.

BALCONY HIGHLIGHTS:
This balcony is one of the largest in the building measuring over 450 sq/ft. Once you are on the balcony you may not want to come back inside. This balcony is as comfortable as any outdoor sitting area you have ever seen. It features table with 4 chairs, loveseat with coffee table, and two chairs with ottomans. I am sure you will agree this is as good as it gets.

GUEST BEDROOM HIGHLIGHTS:
The guest bedroom features a queen size super plush / pillow top bed with side tables & lamps. This room also includes a 20' LCD flat panel with DVD/VHS. This bedroom has a private access to the common bath. Your guests will enjoy the relaxing views of the onsite championship golf course and the Choctawhatchee Bay.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
Traveling with another family and need another unit at Ariel Dunes, no problem. I have several good friends with units at Ariel Dunes ranging in sizes of: 1 bedroom, 2 bedrooms, and 3 bedrooms. I will be happy to assist in making these reservations work for you. I will do whatever I can to make your vacation in paradise as memorable as possible.

Thank you again for considering us for your vacation destination.
