Emerald Coast-Destin Area Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible sofa bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

In June 2007, the New York Times selected our unit out of all of the available units in Destin to feature in a real estate piece written for the paper. NY Times writer, Amy Gunderson researched the units in Destin and was so impressed with the amount of upgrades and extras within our unit that she featured it in her article.

Welcome to our vacation home in Ariel Dunes II, Destin’s newest luxury high-rise condominium, located within the incomparable Seascape Resort.

Our unit is located on the 14th floor, providing you with a completely unobstructed view of the coast. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath platinum unit features 9 foot ceilings, beautiful 18x18 porcelain tile, set on the diagonal, throughout the common areas and plush carpet within each bedroom. The living room is furnished with an inviting loveseat and cozy sofa (which is a sleeper sofa, offering an additional 2 sleeping accommodations), with a 50' plasma, flat panel HDTV and DVD player.

Your guests can enjoy an evening cocktail at the bar with its 3 comfortable bar stools, while you prepare a meal in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Everyone can then continue into the dining area; which boasts a large and spacious table with seating for six.

Our kitchen is complete with stainless steel appliances: there is a brand new LG refrigerator with French Doors, filtered water & automatic ice maker, GE dishwasher, GE self-cleaning oven/range and a built-in GE microwave. You will find that our kitchen is extremely well-equipped with all utensils, plates, cookware, brand new coffee & espresso maker, crockpot, electric pancake griddle, blender, and toaster - everything you could possibly need! To round it all off, the granite countertops, tumbled marble tile backsplash, and the beautiful wood cabinetry all serve to enhance the rich elegance throughout our vacation home.

The master bedroom is presented with classic elegance. You will not miss the comfort of your own bed as this one has been outfitted with the finest custom linens and fabrics. The king size bed has a luxurious pillow-top, adorned with 400 thread-count sheets and lots of comfy pillows. A wide 40' LCD flat screen HDTV sits atop the full length dresser. A hotel quality safe stores all valuables, including large laptops, and electronics. The master bath features a double vanity, garden tub with a warm tile back splash, and a separate shower. A large eight foot sliding glass door provides private access to the balcony from the master bedroom, offering a romantic late night view of the sunset!

The second bedroom features two twin size beds with a beautiful dresser and separate closet. It also has its own 20' LCD flat screen HDTV and DVD player, and Xbox. This bedroom has private access to the guest bathroom which can also be accessed from the hallway. The view from the guest bedroom is impressive, providing a peaceful look across the Seascape golf course and out to the Choctawhatchee Bay.

There is a ton of extra storage space to help keep everyone's belongings tucked away. A separate laundry room with a full size, LG front loading washer and dryer are available within our unit. There is room here to sleep the baby/toddler in his own room for privacy. We provide a pak and play, stored behind the washer (please bring your own linens).

Free wireless internet access is also at your disposal. You will also have a XBox 360 gaming system available to help keep all ages entertained while Mom and Dad are preparing dinner, or on that one rainy afternoon!

Ariel Dunes is the perfect getaway, whether you’re a family of two, four, or six, Ariel Dunes has so much to offer! No matter if your stay is in July or January, you will love the variety of activities available to you. There is an 18-hole golf course on the property; a championship course is located within minutes of our unit, at Emerald Bay. Eight tennis courts, several fresh water lakes, well-equipped on-site gym (complete with cardio equipment, machines, and free-weights), a sauna and steam room.

There are three pools totaling 11,000 square feet. Both children and parents alike will love the benefits of the zero-entry pool and waterfall. Toddlers love to crawl around in 2 inches of water!

There is also world class shopping at the nation’s largest designer outlet center, Silver Sands. There you will find everything you could ever want from Nike, Under Armor, Kenneth Cole, Nautica, J. Crew, Gap, Banana Republic, to Coach, Dooney & Bourke, Waterford, Lenox, Disney, Carters, and SO many more. For a complete listing of all stores, visit Silver Sands Outlet web site.

We love to spend time at our vacation home with our family of four daughters and sons-in-law and our 12 grandchildren (ages 2 months to 11 yrs). But when we cannot be there, we would love to have you as a guest in our home.

Please call me to reserve your week or month!

About Deborah

Hi! My name is Deb. We have a large family, and we all live in Atlanta: Mom and Dad, four adult daughters, four son-in-laws, and twelve grandchildren, ages 1 year through 12 years old!! We visit as a family, as often as we can, usually with a bunch of the grand kids, and have enjoyed our condo immensely! It was the best decision we ever made and we want to share it with you. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Deborah purchased this condo in 2007

We had the opportunity to finish the unit with our choice of upgraded materials. We love the finishes!

Perfect 30A Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect! The condo is in Miramar beach, which is conveniently located between Destin and the smaller 30A beaches. There are restaurants within walking and biking distance. For entertainment and outlet shopping, Destin is just a quick drive to the West, and for more local and artsy flair, the 30A beaches are just a quick drive to the East.

In addition to the location, we loved the condo and the property amenities. Onsite are a gym and pool, as well as a restaurant/bar in the building that can satisfy cravings throughout the day. We enjoyed walking across the pond each day to the beach across the street. It doesn't get better than the white sand of the Gulf beaches!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from Debbie and Keith's beautiful condo in Miramar Beach. Absolutely LOVED it. We have stayed in many condos over the years and never stayed in one as clean and comfortable as theirs. Also very nice to deal with. This was all planned on short notice and they made it all come together. It is also a great location. Lots to offer. Pools, fitness center, restaurants, short walk to delightful beach, golf, tennis and fishing.

Fantastic accommodations! All you willl need are your flip flops!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days last year at Debbie's and Keith's beautiful apartment and everyone absolutely loved the experience. The apartment is located in a central location accross the street from gorgeous crystal clear blue/green waters and the softest sand your feet will touch. It is fully stocked with all the comforts of your own home but in a resort-like setting. Our boys loved the pool just as much as the ocean. It felt like heaven on earth. We did not want to leave and certainly plan to return!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Leidys and Wilder, for taking the time to post your comments. I am so glad you enjoyed our vacation home. We strive to meet all our guests' needs for a perfect vacation! We just had a brand new coffee maker delivered for the current guests, when we heard that the current appliance had met its demise! We are very responsive to our guests' comfort. I will be happy to schedule some time for your next beach vacation! Thanks, Deb

Beautiful Condo in a Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from our trip to the beach, I would without a doubt recommend this condo to anyone traveling to the Destin area. The condo exceeds expectations in every way, the condition of the unit and the work Deborah and family have put in to make it as close to home as possible make for a easy vacation. Deborah was also very easy to work with and made sure that we were taken care of during out stay. Would love to return in the future.

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Though we were there several months ago, since I am already thinking of summer I still wanted to recommend this condo. It is everything as described. The decor is beautiful! The view of the ocean is awesome. We spent every morning drinking coffee on the balcony to enjoy the view and when our family wasn't at the beach or exploring I read out there every day. It is just a short walk to the beach and having the pool right there was an extra bonus. The owner, Deborah, was wonderful to work with as well. This was our first time to Destin and we definitely made the right choice with this condo!
