About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome, you've made it to the right spot as our condo is tastefully decorated, competitively priced and by working with us directly, we will truly take care of you from the moment you first inquire to that sad day when its time for you and your family to check out and go home.

You've probably heard about Ariel Dunes. It is the largest towers in the vicinity and offers some of the greatest views, largest pools, and finest amenities in Destin today.

Our home was furnished with the intent to provide a luxurious stay for families without them having to pay outlandish prices.

Let's start off with the kitchen:

The kitchen has been upgraded to the GE Profile Stainless Steel major appliance line and we also took the time to fully furnish it with all the utensils, knives, bowls, and pots n' pans that you might need while you are there. There is a toaster, coffee maker and can opener there as well.

The dining room offers plenty of seating for six and there is additional seating at the bar for three and overhead, the chandelier, has been upgraded to match the decor of the condo.

Our living room can entertain plenty as it offers a large sleeper sofa couch and two chairs with ottomans. The wall unit has a 38 inch television and a DVD player for those who would like to take in a movie. We also offer free, wireless Internet service.

The Master Bedroom hosts a King Size very comfortable bed with 400 thread count sheets, top of the line comforters and linens. The dresser also hosts an LCD TV/DVD if you wish to flip through the channels.

The spacious master bathroom has a double vanity sink, separate shower, and soaking tub.

Our Guest Bedroom hosts a Queen Size mattress and it has the same level of linens and comforter as well as a large dresser with an LCD/DVD player on top.

The little ones Bunk Room has always been popular and it also has a TV/DVD combo.

The Balcony hosts plenty of outdoor seating. Starting with a round tabletop and four chairs and a separate Settee, your guests will be plenty comfortable sipping a refreshment and overseeing some of the grandest views in the world. Simply stated, there is a difference between a condo on the 10th and below to one that is on the 21st! Believe me, we guarantee it!

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 and fountains (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 as well as complimentary lounge chairs, and pool side cabanas.

One of the newest amenities added to Ariel Dunes I is the on-site bar and restaurant called the Cabana Cafe. They offer a breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything from a grilled cheese sandwich to a prime rib dinner or pizza buffet. You can dine in or have it delivered to your condo or poolside. You can also enjoy the free use of the on-site fitness facility, just completed in the summer of 2009.

Please call/email me before confirming anywhere else... and please beware of hidden charges such as Amenity Fees, Damage Waiver Fees, Administrative fees, etc.

If you have a need for multiple units, we can also make this happen depending on availability.

Breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous condo! Clean and comfortable. The view of the Gulf will literally take your breath away---even prettier than the pictures. Just a short walk to the beach and minutes away from the finest seafood restaurants and shops. I loved it! Looking forward to going back soon.

This was a last minute rental for us! We had a total of 8 people who fit comfortably. The view is spectacular! It’s only a few minutes from all the Destin attractions and only a walk across the street to the beach. We also needed an extra parking pass and they were timely in getting that to us. Great rental! We will be back!

great beach getaway

  • 4 of 5

The reservation process was easy, great communication from the owner. Rental expectations were clearly laid out. The owner gave great local recommendations. Condo was lovely, nicely furnished. Would definitely use again. The location/Ariel Dunes has two great pools, easy walk across the parking lot and road to the beach. Convenient to shopping and dining.

Not exactly what was advertised.

  • 3 of 5

The property was clean. I was very disappointed that we were not on the ocean, but instead a 2 block walk. I contacted owner prior to renting this unit and expressed I was concerned about distance to water for my husbands sake. His health does not permit him to do much walking. During our 1 week stay he was able to make it to the beach only once. When its 95 degrees out a 2 block walk is not so good for someone in poor health. I feel like we were misled about the location of the unit.

Owner's Response: Phyllis, We have never represented that Ariel Dunes is direct beachfront and we have owned and managed multiple condos in this building for 10 years. The description says "beach view", which it is, but there is nothing in the listing representing that the building is "beach front". The pictures also clearly show the views from the balcony as well as the view of the building from the beach. Again, it is very clear that this is not a beach front building. I speak to hundreds of renters a year and always represent the unit and the building as it is - 100 yards from the beach. I am disappointed that you chose to give us this negative review for this reason. Our unit is extremely well-maintained and appointed and we just installed a brand new sofa and flat-screen TV. I urge potential renters to disregard this negative feedback and rent with us.

Excellent accommodations............

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting the Destin area, so we had no idea of what to expect. Although friends and acquaintances had recommended the area for many different reasons, there was still a little apprehension about the area we were staying in and the condo itself. All of those concerns were quickly put to rest the moment we arrived. The condo being on the 21st floor was ideally the right choice. The view was spectacular!

The condo itself was clean, very tastefully decorated, and exactly what we (four adults) were looking for. After being in the area a few days, and taking in most of the recommended sights, restaurants along with all of the various properties, we realized that if, or better yet, when we return to the area, we would definitely look at this same condo as our first choice. There were no issues with the condo, so there was never a need to contact anyone, which is exactly what you want with a vacation issues!

For our needs it was the perfect set-up and perfect location. Very quiet with easy access to a very clean, quiet and enjoyable beach.

There are restaurants within walking distance, all of the shopping you could want within five minutes and a golf course adjacent to the property.

Absolutely a great condo in a great location..........

Gas/Electric BBQ Grill (4): Gas/Electric BBQ Grill: Common area grilling pavilion with large commercial gas grills in the courtyard just below our unit and right outside our elevator. With our condo being located 1 door down from the elevator, these grills are literally only steps away for your convenient BBQing pleasure. I've personally grilled steaks on them and it was very convenient to use and take back up to the condo for perfect family lunch or dinner.
