Absolutely unbelievable value and unforgettable views!

Sites and sounds surround you and your guests, as you relax on exquisite, high quality furniture and tasteful décor. Your views of the world are all around you, as the views up on the 20th floor are simply incredible and impossible to match.

This accommodation sits atop the 20th of 24 floors, and is professionally furnished and appointed as a beautiful vacation home not just a 'run of the mill' rental unit.

You, your family, and friends will enjoy 5-star accommodations, experiencing comfort, luxury, laughter, and views that will have you saying, 'We should have stayed longer or When can we come back!'

The unit has been highly upgraded as it has upgraded porcelain tile installed on the diagonal throughout the common areas and upgraded carpet and padding placed throughout the bedroom. The unit has been furnished to create the most comfortable and stylish appeal.

The family room features a pull-out sofa, 37' inch flat-panel HDTV and a Phillips HDTV DVD player.

You can surf the internet as long as you like as the accomadation is fully wireless enabled.

The kitchen is fully appointed with stainless steel GE appliances, pots, pans, baking dishes, serving dishes, coffee maker, toaster, blender, wine and even margarita glasses.

You will not miss your own home's bed and pillows, as this bed has been outfitted with the finest linens and fabrics. The master bedroom is adorned in 400 thread-count sheets and comfy pillows. Rest in luxurious peace as you watch the widescreen HDTV atop the full length dresser.

The bathroom has been upgraded with an upgraded rainfall showerhead that will leave you feeling invigorated...just like you left a spa. Also, no need to worry about dirty clothes, as the home has an efficient stacked GE washer and dryer.

Your kids will love the fun of sleeping in the two built-in bunk beds and another couple can comfortably sleep on the pull out sleeper sofa.

The patio is spacious and comfortable, as you relax sitting in oversized wicker patio furniture, enjoying gorgeous sunsets and refreshments.

We have also upgraded the unit with the most advanced keyless entry door system so there will never be any hassles with swipe cards that don't work or hassles with lock boxes. We will simply furnish you your own personal key door codes for your vacation with us.

Ariel Dunes is a brand new 24 story tower that is the tallest in Destin! Your views are what Donald Trump is used to seeing! The two huge pools total over 11,000 square feet and includes several fountains. The pool is gently graded from entering into one inch of water cascading down to five feet.

The newly-opened Cabana Cafe, located pool-side on the ground level of Ariel Dunes, offers a full service bar and restaurant and even provides room service! So whether you're looking for a pool-side refreshment or snack, or want dinner delivered to you, the convenience of the Cabana Cafe cannot be matched!

The surrounding community of Seascape also offer tennis courts and an affordable 18-hole golf course where you can rent clubs or simply bring the young ones out and hit some golf balls at the driving range.

Unbeatable in every way - Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our Honeymoon. We couldn't have made a better choice than choosing to stay here for our Destin getaway.

The communication from the owners is fantastic. They are very organized and helpful. They were always willing to work with us in every aspect if at all possible.

The location is unbeatable--close to absolutely anything you need while on vacation.

The view from the balcony is incredible! One of the best available in the whole area.

The property was very clean and well maintained.

The furniture was classy and modern. My wife loved that!

We will be staying here, for sure, in our future trips to Destin.

The view is unbelievable. The condo is very spacious and more than meets your needs. It is in a great area with the beach and amazing dinning possibilities within walking distance. A Winn-Dixie, CVD and multiple souvenir shops in driving distance. The pools are absolutely stunning. The bed is so comfortable and I love that it is a bath and a half. My husband and I really enjoyed not having to wait for one to get ready. Washer and dryer came in handy. Fully furnished with whatever you will need. WE WILL BE BACK!!!!

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We rented Andrea and Steven Simone's unit at Ariel Dunes I and it was exactly as the pictures on VRBO showed. The unit was beautiful, comfortable and had a wonderful view of the ocean. We will stay there again! Thank you my husband and I had a wonderful vacation. The Cabana Bar which is onsite was a lot of fun. The beach was right across the street.

**Fantastic relaxing walks on the beach with your loved ones. **Building sandcastles with your kids **Getting a temporary tan but having a permanent memory of happiness

**Drinking ice cold refreshments and reading your favorite book**Watching your kids have a great time. **Bringing the kids to the Ocean Aquarium...even the kid in you will come out. **Playing a round of golf. **Watching the sun metlt into the ocean from your own patio. **Shop til' you drop at the largest premiere outlet mall in the southeast. **Take a deep sea fishing trip but remember to bring the seasick pills. **Endless dining options ranging from a beachfront grill to a 5-diamond restaurant (Try 'The Whale's Tale and McQuire's Irish Pub'). **Tennis anyone? How about a nice jog in the morning? **Play 'Marco Polo' with your kids in the best pool in Destin.

**Last but not each day to the fullest!

Come on out and stay with us at our Ariel Dunes home!
