|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
This unit (109)is conveniently located on the ground floor adjacent to the swimming pool. A short walk takes you to the beautiful white sand beach that squeaks under your feet and the water is usually crystal clear-- great for snorkeling and scuba diving or just basking in. Rent is not due until you arrive.
Ariel Dunes II renters enjoy their own exercise room, sauna, steam room and three pools, one of which is just off this unit's large patio. There is also a zero entry shallow pool for the little ones. One of the pools is heated in the winter. The large deeded beach at the Gulf of Mexico is a 3 to 5 minute walk, (0.1 miles) or you can drive and park on the beach. You will also have access to a covered heated pool in the winter, the tennis courts, a basketball court, and an 18 hole golf course. Wireless internet - free in the unit.
There are two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bath. The queen bedroom has an adjoining bath which also opens to the living area. There is a bunk room which kids love. It has its own door and a window. New soft carpet added to the 3 bdrms in 2012. Living areas are tiled. Very clean. Good mattresses.
Grocery stores and restaurants, tourist attractions abound nearby. The Whale's Tail restaurant is on the beach a short walk away and offers great burgers and the drinks of your choice. Another poolside restaurant is located in Ariel Dunes I. Other restaurants are within walking distance...fine dining with a view!
Destin is a lovely beach community, upscale yet friendly and affordable. We look forward to meeting you. Please do not apply if you have smokers in your group.
I moved to Destin in 2001 from the Memphis area. I am a real estate agent, tennis player, and beach walker. I usually meet my renters at the unit and answer any questions and introduce them to the property. I own this condo with my brother who lives in the Tampa area. I look forward to meeting you.
Ricky Brown purchased this condo in 2007
Ariel Dunes II is located in a large resort featuring 18 holes of golf, several tennis courts with lessons available, bike trails, basketball, beautiful lakes, and of course the best beaches in the United States...in my opinion. I bought this unit as a rental because I feel these amenities are unbeatable. A new building in this area provides an outstanding rental!...especially with the first floor convenience and the oversized patio by the pool.
The unique benefits of this first floor unit include easy access from the parking lot. You do not go into the lobby, nor do you wait, endlessly sometimes, for the elevator. The floor plan provides a fabulously large patio as opposed to the narrow balconies on the upper floors. The patio is wonderful for relaxing with a book, or partying with your family. You can watch the kids swimming while you sit back and relax. Although this is not a handicap unit, the doorways will accommodate a wheel chair.
Thanks so much for the nice card, and for taking the time to return the button you found. It was a little button off of one of my baby's outfits. We had such a nice Spring Break, and really enjoyed your beautiful condo. The kids loved being so close to the pools. We will certainly refer our friends and hope to return ourselves.
I've attached a photo taken of us on the beach one evening. Thanks again for accommodating us on such short notice.
I can't take credit for this lovely place. I have to give credit to my niece Jessica. Jessica said it was better in person, that the pictures didn't do it justice. It was great for all of us, especially my mom who had both knees replaced. The location being on the 1st floor and right by the pool. We couldn't have been happier. Especially the kids.
Ricky was understanding when our arrival time was delayed due to heavy traffic in Alabama. She made arrangements for us and checked on us to make sure we made it.
The next day we got together. Very nice and helpful with suggestions for activities and restaurants in the area.
While we were there to do nothing, but relax we went to the beach or the pool or both everyday. We found some puzzles/games that was there. Kept the kids and adults occupied. The weather was perfect.
We ate out a couple of times and the food was pretty good. The kids really liked Fudpuckers, especially eating at the bar. They thought that was really cool. Walked the boardwalk a couple of times. Played games and got some tattoos. Fake of course. They're only 4 & 5.
Needless to say. All good things come to an end and so we had to head home. Didn't want to had to. We will stay here again and already told friends about the excellent vacation we had.
My family and I had a great time there were 9 of us. Condo was clean and well maintained. Pools were nice and security was not bad about arm bands. Ricky was very friendly and easy to work with. She met with is and answered any questions we had. I will stay here again.
We had a great time in this condo. Great location, close to the beach and local shopping.
Condo is located on the first floor, next to the pool. Very big back patio.
Great for large family and very kid friendly.
The unit was extremly clean and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The location next to the pools is convenient and beach access is a short walk (or if you have tons of gear to haul) a short drive. The property was quiet. Parking was ample and very convenient and close to the unit.. Everything is close by that you need for a family. The owner is very flexible and accomidating and very responsive to all communications.
One of the best features was the huge assortment of beach toys. Saved me a few hundred dollars!
Highly reccomend for families vacationing with children
We will be back every summer to enjoy Destin again staying in this comfortable and convenient unit.
This condo was very nice. The owner is very friendly and allowed us early access which was nice after our long drive. Ricky was very prompt every time I contacted her and she retured our deposit very quickly. The short walk to the beach is no big deal and the pools were very clean. Our party consisted of four adults and four children including a seven month old. We had ample seating and comfort for all of us. The first floor was great. No waiting on elevators or dragging luggage up and down stairs. The atmosphere for the the holiday was great.
Thanks Ricky for helping to make our summer vacation a great one!
Condo was clean, great location, quick walk to beach, pools are very nice, there was a problem with the drapery rod over the sliding glass door entrance to the patio, wasnt anchored properly and regardless how gentle we were it was still pulling out of the wall, condo association patrolled pool area constantly to make sure everyone had their armbands on-was to the point annoying about it, nice property overall, would recommend to another, also while condo was very clean and nicely furnished would have thought they would have tiled bedrooms as well- carpet was dirty from all the bare feet , we would stay here again
