**Once booked, you will receive a code to the door for the dates of your stay so you can arrive and depart whenever you like without having to check-in on someone else's schedule.

**Make sure to read the GUEST COMMENTS and get the piece of mind that you have to have when planning your family's yearly vacation. By staying with us, you can ensure that your family will have a very comfortable and Hassle-Free vacation.

Ariel Dunes is adjacent to Majestic Sun in the Seascape Resort but worlds apart in luxury and appeal. Act now to experience everything this New Landmark Resort has to offer. If you've been to the Destin area lately, you had to have noticed the two magnificent Towers in the skyline, which are now the tallest buildings in Okaloosa and Walton Counties

Situated in the Seascape Community, Ariel Dunes towers over the adjacent golf course and offers breath-taking views of the Gulf of Mexico as well as magnificent views across the golf course to the Choctawhatchee Bay.

When you enter off of Scenic Gulf Drive and proceed through the security gate, you will instantly know that you have chosen the perfect vacation destination! While pulling up in to the building's drive-thru entry court and main floor lobby, you will immediately admire the expansive pools (some of the largest in Destin) which total in excess of 11,000 square feet, as well as the large adjacent deck areas and extensive landscaping. As an added benefit, the pools include a heated section during colder months as well as complimentary lounge chairs.

Following a short trip up one of several elevators, you will enter our 2 bedroom, 2 bath luxury condominium to find all that your heart desires in a vacation accommodation. This unit features nine ft ceilings, ceramic tile and plush carpet flooring, raised panel kitchen cabinetry and beautiful GRANITE countertops. The kitchen is fully equipped with all STAINLESS STEEL GE PROFILE appliances which include a 26 foot side by side refrigerator with filtered ice and water, dishwasher, self-cleaning oven with smooth-top range and a built-in microwave. In addition, the kitchen has been fully equipped with all utensils, plates, cookware, KEURIG instant coffee brewer, crockpot, blender, toaster and many other items that will ensure optimum convenience.

This Platinum level condo has been furnished in a way that complements the already luxurious feel of Ariel Dunes. The dining area has a large dining table with seating for six as well as a bar with two stools. The living room features a cozy queen sleeper/sofa, a standard sofa, a soft chair with ottoman and a coffee table...all with a view of the Gulf's beautiful waters. A high-end 37' PLASMA HD-TV enhances the living area and also includes a DVD and VCR which is sure to make you feel right at home. A large eight foot sliding glass door opens from the living area to the outdoor living area on the balcony (one of the largest balconies in the building) and offers magnificent views out to the Gulf and of the pools below.

The fully furnished master bedroom includes a king size bed with pillow-top mattress, soft chair and ottoman, dual bed side tables with lamps and clock radios as well as a nice 27' Flat Screen TV, and DVD player. This room offers views of the Gulf and access to the 400 square foot baloony through its own eight foot sliding glass door. It also includes a master bathroom which features a glass enclosed shower, double vanity and a large garden tub that you can soak in while actually enjoying a view of the Gulf.

The guest bedroom features a queen bed with a plush pillow-top mattress, night stand and clock alarm as well as a dresser, large closet and 20' Flat Screen TV with built-in DVD and VCR. It has private access to the guest bathroom which can also be accessed from the hall way. The view from this guest bedroom is impressive - providing a wonderful look across the Seascape Golf course and out to the Choctawhatchee Bay. (For more information on the layout, check out the unit floor plan in the pictures below)

Brand-new, front-loading & full-size Samsung washer and dryer, high-end electronics, board games, DVD's, card games, books and more are included in this magnificent condo. We hope and feel that once you stay with us, you want have any reason to ever stay anywhere else in Destin.

Don't risk your family's vacation by going with a 3rd party managed condo. By staying with us, you can be rest assured that the photos, description and guest reviews on this page are for this specific condo. You can also have confidence that the condo will be clean and crisp when you arrive as we have a detailed inspection done after each cleaning. Further, I can guarantee that you won't find a comparable unit in Destin for a better price. Avoid all the pitfalls associated renting one of many condos rented by a managment company or agent by going directly with the owner. Please call/email me before confirming anywhere else... and please beware of hidden charges such as Amenity Fees, Damage Waiver Fees, Administrative fees, etc.

Thank you and we can't wait to have you. Please don't just take our word for it... Click on 'COMMENTS' below and check out what our guests are saying about their stay.
