Overview

About the property

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 our home in her article.

Welcome to our vacation home in Ariel Dunes II, Destin’s 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' Roku ready, 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 an 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, coffee & espresso maker, crockpot, electric pancake griddle, blender, and toaster, and George Foreman Grille - 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' 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' 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 (I provide a mattress pad and crib sheets, but please bring your own if you would prefer).

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! There are also plenty of outlet strips in each bedroom and the LR and kitchen to keep the electronics charged up.

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 are also outdoor grills for a quick steak and some yummy vegetables!

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 to 13 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 2 years through 13 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! We want to share it with you, when we cannot be there. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Deborah purchased this condo in 2007

Why Deborah chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We had the opportunity to purchase the condo during the pre-construction phase. Best decision ever!

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is family friendly and full of amenities and upgrades to make you feel as if you were at home, with the addition of a fantastic view from the balcony. Our view is completely unobstructed to the west, allowing for fantastic sunsets, full of every color you can imagine. The many variations of robin's egg blue, turquoise and lapis blue shading to deeper navy blue out in the ocean can be enjoyed from our balcony.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an absolute blast on our stay. Everything was relatively close to the condo. The beach was walking distance, there is a cafe right down stairs , there is a beach shop right on the water as well as walking distance down the street. The condo was clean and any questions I had were answered without delay. We will definitely be back with our family.

Owner's Response: Hi Les, I am so glad that your family enjoyed my condo. It was a pleasure to have you as guests in our home. We have put a lot of thought into the little gestures that make our home most comfortable, such as the complimentary coffee and tea to get you started on that first morning, if you arrived late and didn't make it to the store yet!! I hope you and your family will plan on a return visit! Thanks for staying with us, Deborah.

Owner's Response: Hi Pablo, I am so happy to hear you were pleased with your time in our vacation home. I totally agree that the view of the sunset over the ocean is incredible. The colors can be amazing. Makes me wish I could have this view all the time!! The many features we have added to our home do add to the luxury, such as the custom fabrics in the bedrooms and in the living room, and the high end comfort of the pillow top mattresses. We would love to have you and your family return any time you want to see that view again! Thank you, Deborah.

Quick weekend getaway with my husband. The condo is spacious and very clean. The view is great as well. Quick car drive around the corner to the beach. We found everything we needed in the condo. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.
