Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was very positive. The location was perfect...just a few steps to the beach. The amenities were a real plus, restaurant, pools, fitness center. Within 5 minutes we could access shopping restaurants. The condo was very clean. Great overall experience.

We had one of the best beach vacations in years only because of this cozy condo with GREAT view!! Our kids loved the pools, walk to the beach and the white sands; Alfredo pizza at Cafe Cabana are something kids are still talking about...

Location of this condo is fantastic! Destin is not far if you want to go for deep see fishing or try AJ's or Margaritavill and take pictures in Harbor. Shopping malls are within minutes.

We are news junkies but decided not to watch TV during the vacation; we enjoyed 90's electronics and furniture ; )

Our whole experience with the owners was great; booking, payment and specially instructions are perfect. We definitely recommend and plan to comeback soon!!

We are on our way home as I type this review. We absolutely had the best vacation and this condo was just right for us. My kids loved the bunk beds! The view from the balcony was perfect, and the beach was a short distance. The pools were great as well as Cafe Cabana. We will definitely be back! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful property!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family vacation! My boys, 13 and 17 slept great in the bunk beds, my husband and I slept comfortably in the master bedroom. Great location with a short walk to the beach! The view from the balcony was beautiful! The kitchen was well stocked with cooking items/appliances. The washer and dryer were great! We would love to rent this condo again and were very pleased! The rental process was very smooth. No complaints!

We love the scenic Emerald Coast!

  • 4 of 5

We're finishing up our 2nd week along Old Scenic 98, which is probably the best spot in the Destin area (Miramar Beach) because it's right on top of the beach, great views, more laid back than the bustling Destin/Ft. Walton area but you still have all the conveniences at your fingertips.

This is our second time staying at an Ariel Dunes condo through the Simones, who are very professional and responsive. Both condos (the other is VRBO 199537) were clean and organized and the decor makes you feel right at home. We love the zero-depth pool with fountain. The beach is just across the street (looks farther in the pictures than in reality). The Whale's Tail food is delicious and cheaper than the Cabana Cafe...but, hey, you pay for the pool-side service.

The 1 BR and built-in bunks are the perfect size for a family of 4. The kitchen truly is FULLY equipped with updated appliances. Plenty of bath towels, hand towels, and wash cloths are provided in both bathrooms. The owners provide you with a start up of TP, paper towels, laundry detergent, dish soap, and hand soap. We also enjoyed the use of the beach chairs and umbrella. The 17th Floor is a little high for us so we didn't get to enjoy the balcony very much and the pub-height stools and table made us a little nervous with our younger kids (3 and 7).

The complex itself, Ariel Dunes II, could be a bit cleaner. The floors in the pool bathroom areas didn't seem to be washed daily nor the soap and paper towels refilled, etc. The cleaning staff at Ariel Dunes was visible throughout our stay but it didn't seem as clean as the first time we stayed here 2 years ago. Ariel Dunes also had security on staff at the zero-depth pool checking bracelets, which was good to check for people who weren't guests but it started to become a nuisance when the same security guard didn't recognize you when you were in an out of the pool throughout the day and would walk up to you in the pool or at your chair to do a spot check.

Overall, our visits here have been fantastic. The Simones' condos are extremely nice, clean and comfortable. We've done searches for other townhomes/condos in the area that aren't high-rise but can't find anything where the pools are as nice with convenient go-to restaurants (Cabana Cafe/Whale's Tail), and up-to-date decor/appliances within this price range. Even the more upscale, beachfront homes are lacking in areas that Ariel Dunes makes up for.

Had a GREAT vacation here!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was GREAT!! We had two adults and three kids and this place worked really well for us. The pools are very nice and came in handy when the beach was filled with algae. I would recommend this place to others and would stay again. The queen bed in the bedroom was pretty hard. I slept fine but would have liked it a little softer. The bunk beds were very comfy and so was the pull out sofa. Can't wait to come back!
