Ariel Dunes Condo Rental Photos and Description

Let our past renters share with you their experience to help you with your future vacation. Click on 'GUEST COMMENTS' link now!

Absolutely unbelievable value and unforgettable views! Your views of the world are all around you as the sights up on the 22nd floor are simply incredible and impossible to match.

This three bedroom, 1,600 square foot accommodation is on the 22nd of 24 floors and is professionally furnished and appointed as a luxury Penthouse, 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!' All of this at much less than what you would pay for a single room at the Marriott.

The condo has been highly upgraded and hosts beautiful upgraded 20' porcelain tile installed on the diagonal throughout the common areas and upgraded carpet placed throughout the bedrooms. All new carpeting was installed in May 2010 - we continue to update and maintain our home in a way that most owners do not! The condo is also upgraded with GE Stainless Steel appliances and even the chandeliers, sconces, and ceiling fans have been replaced to create the most beautiful and stylish appeal. A full size washer/dryer is also provided.

The family room features a queen-size sleeper sofa surrounded by two large chairs that will provide plenty of seating for the family and guests. Enjoy your favorite movie or surf the channels while watching HDTV on the 42' Phillips Ambilight Flat-panel LCD HDTV and Phillips HD DVD player. You will be able to stay connected to the world through the free wireless Internet connection.

The dining room includes a 60' glass table that comfortably seats six adults with additional seating available at the built-in bar and a gorgeous chandelier overhead is controlled through a gentle dimmer.

The kitchen has been fully appointed with stainless steel GE appliances, Cuisine Art stainless steel pots, pans, baking dishes, serving dishes, coffee maker, toaster, blender, wine and even margarita glasses. The stemware, dinnerware, and flatware are very high quality...the quality you would want in your own home. If you are the Rachael Ray type or Emeril, you simply will feel right at home in the kitchen.

You will definitely not miss your own home's bed and pillows as these beds have been outfitted with the finest linens and fabrics. The master bedroom has a King Sleigh bed adorned in 400 thread-count sheets and lots and lots of comfy pillows. A wide screen LCD HDTV sits atop the full length dresser and mirror. You will wake up to the views of the incredible Gulf of Mexico right from your own bed. Gently take in the morning as you step outside onto the patio and enjoy your coffee, paper, and soothing sounds of the Gulf.

The master bathroom includes an upgraded rainfall showerhead that will leave you feeling invigorated, just like you left a spa. The soaking tub and huge double vanity fit in nicely and there is plenty of room to get ready in the morning.

Your guests will not feel jealous of you residing in the master suite as their accommodations are extremely nice as well. The guest room includes a queen size pillow top bed, exquisite linens, flat panel wide screen HDTV, private bath and shower/tub, and private patio with views overlooking the Gulf, Destin, 18-hole golf course, and serene Choctawhatchee Bay.

The third bedroom hosts a twin over full size bunk bed that comfortably sleeps 3 children or another couple. The kids will be able to enjoy their own favorite DVD as the room includes a 21' TV/DVD combo unit that is perfect for those days when its time to let the kids have 'their own time.' All these fine touches set this home apart from the rest.

The 420 square foot wrap around balconies have comfortable oversized wicker patio furniture to help you enjoy gorgeous sunsets and your favorite bottle of wine. Our west facing views are simply breathtaking and you will absolutely love being on top of the world.

We have also upgraded the home with an advanced keyless entry door codes so there will never be any hassles with dysfunctional swipe keys or lock boxes. We will furnish you your own personal key touch door code for your vacation.

The two huge pools total over 11,000 square feet and includes several fountains. The pool is gently graded for easy entry. 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.

The Cabana Cafe Restaurant, 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!

Now for the rates! You will not find better rates in Ariel Dunes for the quality you are seeking! We simply will not be beat as our rates are guaranteed to be the best.

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5
This condo was way more than I ever expected! It was accomodated with everything you need, very spacious with an amazing view of the beach, was very clean and so tastefully decorated. The wrap around balcony was huge, and it was so peaceful and relaxing to sit out there and listen to the ocean and fountain in the pool. This truly felt like a luxurious vacation. I will definitely recommend this to everyone and will be returning to stay! It is kid friendly and had great pools for the kids, and a nice little cafe with great food, and also has a bar for the adults. I would recommend this for families as well as adults going without their kids.

Beautiful View from every angle

  • 4 of 5
Thank you for working with us to get our vacation settled at the last minute. The views were spectacular. We got to see about a dozen dolphins playing every day before sunset off the balcony. We took your advice on going to Shrimpers and had a wonderful meal of boiled shrimp, clams and muscles. The condo was close enough to the beach to have a nice walk and far enough away not to have sand blown in your windows. We also loved the fact that we all had our own bathroom. When you go with other couples it makes it nice not to have to share bathrooms. The only issues we had with the condo were the beds. I believe they are in need of replacing in a bad way. The bed sank in the middle so far you could actually see it when you weren't laying down, not a very restful sleep for the week and the master bedroom they had the same problem. the kids room slept great they said. I guess that happens when you have such a popular condo. Other than that we had no complaints. It was a wonderful place to visit. We would like to go back again next year if the mattresses get replaced.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive feedback. Concerning the bed, the renters just prior to your arrival broke the guest queen box spring and that is why it was sagging. I'm sorry that we were not able to get a new box spring delivered just prior to your arrival. I'll evaluate the replacement of the master bedroom bed but many of our guests have raved at how comfortable that particular bed has been.

Fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Andrea and Steve, for allowing us to rent your beautiful condo for the week! My family had a fantastic vacation! Your description of the condo is what made me decide on it, and we weren't disappointed. It was clean, spacious, and comfortable! The view from the balcony was awesome! It was my favorite place to sit - morning, evening, anytime. So very relaxing!
The Simones answered questions I had promptly and their recommendations for things to do and places to eat were so very helpful. Had a great dinner of grouper and red shrimp from Shrimpers! The Back Porch was fabulous, as well as McGuires, Harry T's, and Fudpuckers. Didn't have enough time to do everything that we wanted to do; maybe next time.
We really did not want to leave! We hope to come back!
Thank you again!!

Better than photos!!

  • 5 of 5
Extremely nice condo! Interior pics do not do justice to stylish decor and space of this rental. Owners are lovely to work with as well. Wrap around balconies provide incredible view of the ocean and those beach sunsets. We have rented in this part of Florida for thirty years and this is one of the nicest experiences we have had. LOCATION, LOCATION,LOCATION! Near everything and beach is wonderful. Clean and Simones/staff even sent a much needed left behind agenda to us in Oklahoma the very day we inquired about it!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND this rental!

Thank you Simones for letting us enjoy your property!

Views and Sunsets

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Andrea and Steve for letting us stay in your beautiful and spacious condo for 2 months. The pictures are exactly what you see when you arrive. The unit was very clean upon our arrival.
The sunsets from the balcony, living room- dining room and master bedroom were unbelievable. Where can you be eating dinner and watch the sun set? You can also watch the sun rise from the balcony. The views of the gulf are breathtaking. We missed seeing any dolphins this year.
The master bedroom and ensuite are very spacious and the bed was most comfortable. Many of the units in Ariel Dunes do not have flat screen TV's but this one does and has a few HD channels.
How convenient to walk out the back of the building and be a few steps to the golf course! There are many courses closeby as well. Also the condo is within walking distance of a grocery store, restaurants, Post Office and the many Outlet Stores. There is a very good restaurant downstairs that has live entertainment 6 days of the week. You can also have food delivered from the Cabana Cafe and get a 10% discount for staying in Ariel Dunes.
We had a great time on our holiday and have booked again for next year.
Thank you again Andrea and Steve. You were so easy to deal with and always readily answered any questions we had. We felt so at home in your condo. We will definitely recommend it to our friends.
Linda and Matt,
Burlington, Ontario, Canada
