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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We took our vacation here with our three children. We had a fabulous time. The place was immaculate with top notch decor and ammenities. My kids really enjoyed the pools, and we all enjoyed the beach here. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. Excellent condo. We hope to return. A wonderful bonus was the fact that the condo was full of inflatables, beach chairs, a beach cart, sand toys. Fully stocked kitchen made cooking for the family easy. The owner was excellent to communicate with and made booking the condo easy. Thanks again!

Excellent Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is an awesome place. You can not go wrong renting this one! Everything was just like it was in the pictures. It was very clean and taken care of. The owner was exceptional to work with. This was a sudden trip with special circumstances for us and he was more than willing to work with us. We will definitely rent from him again. I also have already recommended this condo to two friends.

Reviewing our stay at Airel Dunes

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at Ariel Dunes. The property was everything the pictures showed. Very well maintained. We had no trouble getting answers to questions we had about the area and the condo.

We would recommend this to one and all. And I know they would enjoy it as much as we did. Dewey Destin makes a pretty good crab cake. Bubba Gump was very good indeed.

We drove to Panama City and took in Pier Park. Ate at the Back Porch. Very good. Shopping was great.

Everything was just wonderful.

Thanks for letting us stay in your condo! We'll definitely try coming again next year. This condo is modern, clean and very well taken care of. I can also tell that the owner invested in modern appliances and luxurious materials to make our stay very comfortable. Besides that, the condo has everything it needs for a summer vacation, specially if you have little kids. The pool is amazing and the kids love it. The kitchen is top-notch. We barely ate out during our stay and did most of our cooking in the condo and every utensil that we need is in there. We also like the large balcony where we could just hang out on a breezy night, drink, laugh and just have a good time. To top it off, the master bedroom also has a very comfy tempurpedic bed with a nice view which we can relax after a long day. We'll surely miss this place.

My Flordia Home Away from Home

This was our first snowbird experience. This condo was amazing. I miss it already. We have already booked for next year. This condo has everything you need or could want. The Cabana Club was fun and the Food was very good. I would highly recomend the condo. And Jeremy was a jewel to work with.

Excellent Choice - All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We were able to rent this last September 2012 due to a last minute cancelation. I had inquired about it and thankfully Jeremy also took the time to call me to let me know it was available (in case I mssed his email). Boy did we luck out!! We stayed with our son & daughter-in-law and 1 month old granddaughter. The condo was beautiful, cozy & comfortable. I loved sitting on the exceptionally large deck. The owners really take care of this one. The only downside was Tropical Storm Lee - even though we couldn't go to the beach for a few days, we relaxed & enjoyed our granddaughter & her first vacation. The owner, Jeremy, was exceptional to work with as well, .Would definitely rent again if opportunity arises.

Great Place for the Family

  • 5 of 5

We were tempted to stay at another condo closer to the Emerald Grand, but we are so glad we stayed here. It was perfect! The golf course is in your backyard and the ocean is a quick skip across the street. Everything is really close and for those nights that we didn't feel like going out, the Cabana Cafe was an excellent choice which is located on the first floor of the condo building. We even had beach chairs in the condo and beach toys. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Destin. Thank you for making our vacation very special and full of good memories.
