Absolutely unbelievable value and unforgettable views!

Sites and sounds surround you and your guests, as you relax on exquisite, high quality furniture and tasteful décor. Your views of the world are all around you, as the views up on the 20th floor are simply incredible and impossible to match.

This accommodation sits atop the 20th of 24 floors, and is professionally furnished and appointed as a beautiful vacation home 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!'

The unit has been highly upgraded as it has upgraded porcelain tile installed on the diagonal throughout the common areas and upgraded carpet and padding placed throughout the bedroom. The unit has been furnished to create the most comfortable and stylish appeal.

The family room features a pull-out sofa, 37' inch flat-panel HDTV and a Phillips HDTV DVD player.

You can surf the internet as long as you like as the accomadation is fully wireless enabled.

The kitchen is fully appointed with stainless steel GE appliances, pots, pans, baking dishes, serving dishes, coffee maker, toaster, blender, wine and even margarita glasses.

You will not miss your own home's bed and pillows, as this bed has been outfitted with the finest linens and fabrics. The master bedroom is adorned in 400 thread-count sheets and comfy pillows. Rest in luxurious peace as you watch the widescreen HDTV atop the full length dresser.

The bathroom has been upgraded with an upgraded rainfall showerhead that will leave you feeling invigorated...just like you left a spa. Also, no need to worry about dirty clothes, as the home has an efficient stacked GE washer and dryer.

Your kids will love the fun of sleeping in the two built-in bunk beds and another couple can comfortably sleep on the pull out sleeper sofa.

The patio is spacious and comfortable, as you relax sitting in oversized wicker patio furniture, enjoying gorgeous sunsets and refreshments.

We have also upgraded the unit with the most advanced keyless entry door system so there will never be any hassles with swipe cards that don't work or hassles with lock boxes. We will simply furnish you your own personal key door codes for your vacation with us.

Ariel Dunes is a brand new 24 story tower that is the tallest in Destin! Your views are what Donald Trump is used to seeing! The two huge pools total over 11,000 square feet and includes several fountains. The pool is gently graded from entering into one inch of water cascading down to five feet.

The newly-opened Cabana Cafe, 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!

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.

Unbeatable in every way - Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our Honeymoon. We couldn't have made a better choice than choosing to stay here for our Destin getaway.

The communication from the owners is fantastic. They are very organized and helpful. They were always willing to work with us in every aspect if at all possible.

The location is unbeatable--close to absolutely anything you need while on vacation.

The view from the balcony is incredible! One of the best available in the whole area.

The property was very clean and well maintained.

The furniture was classy and modern. My wife loved that!

We will be staying here, for sure, in our future trips to Destin.

My great stay with fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter found this listing and we tried it out. Only second time i have rented a condo. With my GPS I found the property easily. Althought the information provited by the owners was very informative.

We arrived later than we had hoped to but the access was very easy. There were carts provided for luggage. The elevators were fast and always available. So easy and convenient. The key coding is great! Love it ! No keys to track.The condo was clean and nice except for a couple minor things ( my daughter is germaphobic so she notices everything) . Missing one parking pass and one pool band but that was rectified very quickly. We did not get to enjoy the pool because of our short stay but next time...Let me tell you the night view was beautiful but the morning view was absolutely fabulous! We could not have done better. The bunk beds were surprisingly very comfortable. The condo was a nice size and had everything we needed. We were not there very long only 3 nights but would love to return someday.

The access to the beach was a short, beautiful walk. The only inconvenience is that we had a hard time finding a ramp for our beach cart and stroller. We had to walk a little further. But not a big deal. We are walking people.

The condo is well located between the shopping areas. In between Destin Commons and the outlet stores. Loved that! Lots of eating choices everywhere. We did not cook only snacked in condo. We weren't there long enough. But the fridge was great for water bottles ect...

Looking forward to returning as soon as we have the time. Definitely recommend this to all my friends.

Ps the payment process was very efficient and the refund on deposit was prompt.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

We were immediately impressed with the condo when we walked in. Granite counters, nice stools/couch/furnishings, all fairly new. Then the view from the 20th floor off the balcony, wow. The kids loved it & all had a great time. Check in/out was no hassle at all and the whole thing was very smooth. Would love to come again.
