About Diane Ferreira

My husband and I had the dream of owning a condo in Destin FL and now we own two – you can also view VRBO/435182 to see our 1 Bd condo. Why travel out of the country when we can simply drive 7 1/2 hours to the look and feel of the Caribean in both the aqua water and white sand! The sand feels like powder and the people are friendly.

We are anxious to share our place with you as we cannot be there 24/7 as we would like.

We know you'll enjoy yourselves and want to come back. We look forward to making you feel comfortable and right at home.

Diane Ferreira purchased this condo in 2011

Why Diane Ferreira chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

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 or HWY 98 and proceed through the security gate, you will instantly know that you have chosen the perfect vacation destination! Ariel Dunes offers expansive pools (some of the largest in Destin) which total in excess of 11,000 square feet and include waterfalls, as well as the large adjacent deck areas and extensive landscaping. As an added benefit to the enormous pools you'll have no problem finding lounge chairs and space to relax.

The Cabana Cafe, located on-site offers a full service bar and restaurant and even provides room service! After your first meal, provide your email and it's 10% off for the remainder of your stay. 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! and neither can the quality and quantity. And all for a reasonable price!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo is lovely and views are amazing. It is walking distance to the beach, and driving distance to any shopping or restaurants. We liked that it is not located in the noisy and high traffic areas of Destin, and actually has a better view than most accommodations we saw in the same or higher price range. We especially liked the king size bed in the master, and the enormous balcony to enjoy the scenery. Diane and Luis were very easy to work with and we have already given our family and friends a recommendation to stay here if they travel to Destin in the future.

Wonderful Week; Responsive & Accommodating Owners

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Luis and Diane are wonderful to work with. They worked with us to help us check in as we had time conflicts surrounding our wedding rehearsal and needed to drop things off beforehand to keep them out of the heat. The condo was great. It was clean and well furnished. I slept AMAZINGLY all week in the King bed with my husband. We had our couple friends in the queen bedroom who enjoyed their stay as well. There were plenty of baking dishes in the condo so that I could make breakfast in the morning. We typically did sandwiches for lunch and ate out for dinner. The pool is nice and appears to be well maintained. The pump went out in the center pool during our stay, but it had been fixed prior to our checkout. The beach is a quick walk and there is a crosswalk for safety across the road. Prettiest beaches in the world, of course. The twin room did seem to get a bit warm overnight with the door closed; however, I wouldn't say it was overwhelmingly warm. This would be a fine room for kids to stay in. The balcony is large and offers a nice view as shown in the picture overlooking the lagoon. I also enjoyed the washer and dryer in the unit as I purchased laundry detergent and did a couple of loads of towels and clothes prior to heading back so I didn't have to worry about them when I got back home. We ate at the restaurant in Ariel Dunes 1 one night for dinner which was so convenient. The food was good...not GREAT, but good and worth it for the convenience when we were exhausted at the end of the week. I would definitely stay here again.

Better than Expected!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation without our kids in almost 30 years, so we were really looking for something special and after an extensive search we ran across this wonderful little oasis. This unit is spacious, beautifully decorated and well maintained. We loved sitting out on the huge double balcony eating breakfast and enjoying the picture perfect view. The three pools are big and crystal clear, plus one is also a zero entry pool. It's just a short walk the white sandy private beach and a short drive to numerous attractions and resturants.

Diane was so easy to work with and quickly answered any question we had and made the whole trip a breeze. This was a trip to remember and we will definitely be back. Thanks Diane!

Great Family Vacay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week in this condo...our 2nd time at Ariel Dunes....and had a wonderful time! The condo was perfect for our family of 6...our girls in the bunkroom and our teenage boys in guest room and on sleeper sofa....we really appreciated the four flatscreen tvs to relax with and the large and scenic balcony! We would definitely recommend this unit. Owners very responsive and easy to work with. [Plus the four elevators in Ariel Dunes 2 are VERY quick!]

A Comfy Condo

  • 5 of 5

We took 4 senior girls on Spring Break and when they walked into the condo, their first words were "wow, this is perfect." My husband travels a lot and has high standards of comfort and this condo was everything he wanted from a vacation accommodation. Diana was very helpful with detailed information about the area and responded to all my questions in a timely manner. This was our first experience in Destin and we loved the area, the beaches and the vibe of the community. We would rent this condo again without question.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I and our 3 teens stayed in this 3 bedroom condo for 5 nights. The condo is very tastefully decorated (we loves the two recliners - so comfy and beautiful) with a wonderful view and lovely kitchen. The fitness center and pool are really nice (but of course the beaches and the gulf are even better!). The owners were very responsive and helpful. I can't recommend it enough!
