Ariel Dunes II Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our spectacular 8th Floor unit has been completely redecorated with a tasteful and classic look that is not found in many other units. We tried to decorate the unit as if it was our primary home bringing in warm colors and simplistic designs.

The Master Bedroom features a King Sized 4 Poster Bed with a luxurious pillow-top mattress. Also featured is a 32' flat screen Vizio LCD TV. A multi-drawer dresser & night stand allows for plenty of clothing storage space. This room includes a private 1/2 bath (vanity, toilet & closet) and access to the full bath which can also be accessed from the hallway. A stacked washer & dryer is located in the full bath.

The Living Room features a queen sized sleeper sofa (with 6 inch mattress, providing more comfort during your stay), a matching chair and a half and large coffee table with storage baskets is perfect for playing cards or board games. A 42' flat screen Vizio LCD TV & DVD player is also provided. FREE WiFi is also available in the unit.

The floor to ceiling sliding glass doors give you access to the patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee or mimosa while overlooking Destin's white sandy beaches and the Gulf of Mexico.

The kitchen features all GE Profile stainless steel appliances including: Side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water dispenser, dishwasher, oven/range and a built-in microwave. In addition, the kitchen comes fully equipped with toaster, coffee maker, blender and all cookware and utensils needed for daily use.

The two built-in bunks with new upgraded mattresses are perfect for the kids to have their own space. Each bunk features a private TV/DVD player with headphones and ports for playing games. The floor-to-ceiling drape provides complete privacy for the bunks so that the children feel as if they are in their own room.

Ariel Dunes II is a new 24-story tower that was built in 2006. The tower features 2 large pools, a workout center and large conference center. You will also have access to the pools (one is which is heated) in the adjoined Seascape community. A map will be given to you during your stay for directions and details.

Located in Ariel Dunes I is the Cabana Cafe. The Cabana Cafe is a popular Destin restaurant featuring casual dining, great food, live entertainment and late night bar. Please click on link below for more information:

The resort also offers over 2000 feet of private sandy beaches with various water sport rentals, an 18-hole championship golf course, 8 clay tennis courts with on-site Pro & fresh-water lakes.

Just across the street is the famous Whale's Tail restaurant offering breakfast, lunch & dinner, a full-service bar and music.

Just a short walk and/or drive is the Silver Sands Factory Outlet Mall featuring dozens of popular stores and brands.

We are looking forward to sharing our vacation home with you during your stay. We want this to be a vacation you will remember!

Please check the calendar for available dates and rate. Feel free to call or email us if you have any questions or would like to see more pictures.

Thank you and we're looking forward to meeting you!

Just wanted to express the joy my family experienced in your 8th floor unit. As advertised, the unit was beautifully decorated with numerous upgraded amenities.!!! As a veteran vacationer in the Destin area, this is simply one of the best units we have had the pleasure of renting. Bedding was quite comfortable and spacious. The kids specially liked the small TV units in the bunk-bed area. We look forward to renting this unit again. Thanks for allowing us to rent this lovely vacation getaway.!!!

My husband and I RECOMMEND this condo to anyone looking for "home away from home" stay. The condo is spacious with its 1 bedroom, bunk area, pull out bed, and 1.5 bath. The washer and dryer that is located in the condo is also great. We also enjoy using the workout facilities in the building. This is our 2nd time to stay in this condo...and we always ENJOY our stay! The pool area is GREAT and the beach is just a FEW steps away. The owners have always been so kind and courteous to my husband and I. If you are looking for kind owners, a great condo, and a relaxing vacation...I would recommend this place! THANK YOU for allowing us to stay a 2nd time and making many more memories that will last forever!

We've been vacationing in the Destin area for nearly 10 years and this was our first (and last) stay at Ariel Dunes II. The unit was decorated nicely and was clean. The pictures give the illusion of a larger condo, but, it is quite small. There were 4 of us staying (2 adults, a 9 yr. old, a 14 yr. old). The king bed, I must say, was great! The bunks for the kids, however, were horrible. My 14 yr. old (5'7, 135 lbs) was extremely uncomfortable. The mattresses were super thin. I specifically asked the owner if the bunk bed mattresses were good quality and he assured me they were. I guess I should have been more specific. It wasn't so bad for the 9 year old, but, I wouldn't make an older child or adult sleep on them. They did enjoy the TV's. As far as the property goes, the pools were so crowded that we didn't even bother. Luckily, my brother was staying down the road in Sandestin and we swam at their pool. The bar located in Ariel Dunes I was convenient and the folks there were quite friendly. We also enjoyed the proximity to the beach.
Owner's Response: I'm sorry to hear your stay fell short of your expectations. We have tried, through various pictures on our VRBO listing, to accurately portray our condo in regards to decor and overall general layout. Our intent is never to paint an inaccurate picture, but the size of the condo is what it is, around 750 sq. ft. Perhaps 1 BR/1 1/2 BA condos in Ariel Dunes are smaller than some others in town, but all 1 BR condos in both Ariel Dunes buildings are exactly the same square footage.

The summer season, especially June and July, is peak season for vacationers in Destin. If the pools are too crowded at Ariel Dunes, all guests have access to any of the pools within the greater Seascape community. There are 8-10 pools located throughout the Seascape premises.

When we bought the condo in Oct. 2010, we replaced the mattresses for both hallway bunks. Our replacements are nearly twice as thick as the original mattress. In the past two years, we've had people of all ages, adults and kids, sleep on the bunks with no incident of discomfort. I realize that not all people like the same type of mattress. Some prefer a soft mattress, whereas others may prefer a more firm mattress. If a guest finds the bunks uncomfortable, the living room sofa also has a queen size pullout mattress he/she can use, which does give you more room to stretch out during the night.

We thank you for your review and hope you enjoy any future vactions in the Destin area.
