Ariel Dunes condo description

Welcome to our beach retreat! Check out our video in the upper left corner. We want you to experience our platinum level tropical retreat first-hand by vacationing in our beautiful three bedroom three full bath condo. My husband and I own, manage and clean this unit ourselves, keeping it immaculate and updated. There are no hidden fees. We live locally so are able to respond to any concerns immediately.

Our 12th floor West end corner unit, with a wrap around balcony, overlooks the Gulf of Mexico with its spectacular sunsets and the golf course of Seascape with Choctawhatchee Bay as a backdrop. Each of the three bedrooms has its own private bath and has been thoughtfully decorated to provide a relaxing, comfortable and fun retreat for your family and ours. The kitchen is fully equipped and the laundry room has a full size washer and dryer. There is comfortable seating for 12 with 8 at our community table and four barstools at the breakfast bar. You will also enjoy outdoor meals on the balcony with seating for 4.

A nice fitness room is available for our guests. It is located on the ground floor near the elevators. There are several machines facing directly onto the pool.

Seascape Resort offers two beautiful 18-holes golf courses; Seascape Golf Course is directly behind Ariel Dunes and Emerald Bay, just a mile to the west. Both courses are full-service facilities with a restaurant, practice range, rental clubs, professional lessons, and a pro shop. We would be happy to make tee times for golf, or court reservations for tennis during your stay!

We're excited about Ariel Dunes''Cabana Cafe' across the breezeway from our lobby. It is a full bar/restaurant with a coffee bar, ice cream shop and bakery. Cabana Cafe even offers room service and a 10% discount to our guests. Live entertainment and breakfast and lunch buffets keep the place hopping. The very popular 'Whales Tail' has yummy beachside breakfasts, lunches and dinners, located directly on our beach with a beachside bar downstairs. When it comes to good food and entertainment, it's only a short drive to the Sandestin Resort featuring the Village of Baytowne Wharf (great restaurants, shops and live music in the evenings and even outdoor movies) and Grand Boulevard. If it's shopping that is on your agenda, Silver Sands Outlet Mall is even closer (a three minute drive) or Destin Commons is always very popular (shops, restaurants, movie theaters). And of course, there is the water park and goofy golf at Big Kahuna's that the kids will enjoy.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We're Bill and Brenda Meeboer. My husband is a retired Air Force fighter pilot. We knew we wanted to retire in this area after his first assignment in the 80's. We live in nearby Niceville. I manage our condo and live closeby so I can keep an eye on things and help our guests when needed. We're happy to share our special retreat with our guests.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ariel Dunes:
                      We've always loved the beach in the area and were fortunate to buy a condo at Ariel Dunes.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We love staying at our condo on the 12th floor and watching the gorgeous sunsets and the gulf. It's a magical place! We often entertain friends and really enjoy the pools and beach, of course. We have recently added premium cable TV.
