About Michael & Erika

We are longtime beach-lovers from New Orleans, who fell in love with Destin years ago. We have always desired to have a slice of paradise of our own to enjoy. We feel that this lovely beach town should be shared with the world. We own Real Estate in New Orleans and wanted to branch out to our favorite get away.

Michael & Erika purchased this condo in 2012

Why Michael & Erika chose Ariel Dunes

We have viewed many other condos and homes in Destin through the years, none compare to Ariel Dunes. The upscale units are a plus, 'nice floor plan, granite, quality cabinets, everything is well built'; along with the amenities.. which isn't easy to come by in the Destin area. We love the location, it's a perfect fit.

What makes this condo unique

Ariel Dunes is in the heart of Old Scenic Hwy 98 & Miramar Beach. This resort has it all, wonderful on-site restaurant, bar, tennis, basketball, beach volleyball, relaxing pools, golf, breathtaking views of the lovely sunsets and emerald green water.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful place you have here in Destin (heaven). We felt at home- everything was very comfy & cozy! We will be back!

WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

WE JUST RETURNED FROM A GLORIOUS WEEK AT THE BEACH! THIS CONDO WAS THE PERFECT CHOICE FOR A LAST MINUTE TRIP WITH MY DAUGHTER AND HER FRIEND BEFORE THEY GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE AND MOVE ON SOON! THE DECOR WAS SO NICE AND THE CONDO HAD EVERYTHING WE NEEDED. VERY SPACIOUS AND STUNNING VIEWS OF THE OCEAN AND SURROUNDINGS. I WAS CONCERNED WHEN I BOOKED THIS THAT WE MAY HAVE TOO MUCH OF A WALK TO THE BEACH......I WAS TOTALLY MISTAKEN!! IT LITERALLY TAKES NO MORE THAN JUST 3-5 MINUTES... SO NO BIG DEAL AT ALL!! THE ELEVATORS ARE REALLY FAST IN THIS BUILDING AND NEVER HAD TO WAIT!! BOOK THIS CONDO AND YOU WILL BE THRILLED THAT YOU DID! i HAVE STAYED IN ABOUT 6 CONDOS IN THIS AREA AND WILL RE-BOOK THIS CONDO AGAIN! THE OWNERS ARE FABULOUS AS WELL!! ENJOY!!

Fabulous beach condo! Great views, comfortable, very clean and stylish. The owners, Michael and Erika truly cared about the cleanliness and wanted to make sure we had a great vacation. They really provided all of the comforts of home. The pools at the resort were great, especially the heated one for the kids. The on-site cafe was good as well. We will definitely be back!

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our personal time together at this Condo. Being on the 12th floor we were able to see out to the beautiful beach line. We enjoyed our quiet times on the balcony while over looking the pool. We didn't make it to the beach however we didn't need to. It was just so great to stay there during the day and go out at night to some very nice restaurants in the area.

I highly recommend this condo. It has high quality decorations and furniture. Very clean and quiet. Arial Dunes is a high rise Condo and there were always luggage carriers available and food carts so you could carry groceries to your room with no problem. We never had to wait on the elevator for a long time.

We really enjoyed the owners also. They were available all the time and wanted to make sure our needs were being met. Thank you Michael for letting us stay at your beautiful place. We hope to stay again next year!

We enjoyed our stay at your beautiful condo! We have stayed in Destin multiple times and I was very pleased with the stay at Ariel Dunes. The condo was clean and home feeling. Kitchen supplies were all there, chairs on the patio to enjoy the view, etc. The pool was great, there are showers to rinse off after the fun day at the beach. The location was great! Thanks so much
