A bit disappointing!!

  • 3 of 5

Ariel Dunes is a beautiful complex! The one bedroom we chose was a bit disappointing!

1) Rather outdated

2) Shower curtain & shower head had mold

3) The only closet in the entire unit was filled with a blow up mattress & a small chest leaving

no room for storing luggage and barely room for hanging clothes

4) Unit says it would sleep 6, but it was actually small for even two!

Unit was clean enough, but could use some tender loving care!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This one of the best condos I've ever stayed in.

The very is awesome. The beach is very close (about 5 mins walk). Also, it is very close to Restaurents, groceries and the outlet mall (5 mins drive). The furniture is nice and clean. The only thing I didn't like is that the parking pass was not filled out, and I didn't know where was the office, so I fill it out myself. And please be careful you will need your phone and internet to be able to see the prior to check-in information such us the door code and wifi. Honestly, I want to visit this place again soon. Thank you real joy for your accommodation.

Beautiful condo!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was in this condo was nearly perfect!! Its view is amazing!! Easy to find, park, access, etc.....I loved having the app with very simple directions on check in and out! Loved not having to find an office nearby to get key and then return! very well kept condo!! I would suggest a " start up"' accommodation welcome basket, such as... small salt/pepper, coffee filter/ coffee packet, single use laundry detergent.....just to get you thru the first night before being able to get to grocery. I for sure will look into renting again at Ariel Dunes.

Ariel Dunes I

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous Gulf and sunset view. Condo was nice and clean. Check-in/out process with RealJoy Vacations was extremely easy and I especially appreciate that they provide paper products, soap and dish cleaning supplies to get you started. Stayed with my three young boys so bunks and couch were perfect. Kitchen seemed outfitted with dishes/glasses/pots sufficiently except for maybe missing a cookie sheet. Walk to beach was easy. So convenient to have a washer/dryer available in the unit.

A few notes: The size of the condo is a little tight for the furnishings. The sofa/loveseat are comfortable but oversized for the space. Same for the king size bed - comfortable but makes for a tight space. It may be time to replace the carpets as they seemed a little worn.

I would definitely stay here again!

A little outdated!!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here over the Labor Day weekend. It can use an upgrade. The kitchen has granite but the bathroom doesn't. The bathroom needs an upgrade. Not all the channels on the televisions are high definition and the remotes didn't work half the time. The pan leaves brown markings on the stove after using them, and the front eye on the stove stopped working. The condo is very crowded. The king size bed is too large for the room which leaves very little space to walk and place luggage. The curtain rod in the bedroom looks like it was just thrown up in a hurry because it is crooked. The living room furniture also seems a bit big for the condo. It is advertised to sleep 6, but it wouldn't sleep 6 comfortably. There isn't a sofa bed in the living room, and although there is an air mattress in the closet there isn't room for it to be inflated. We did like the fact that it's close to beach, outlet, and other stores. Although the room has a crowded feel, it was very clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped and there were plenty of towels and soap. We liked the fact that there was a roll of paper towels, tissue in the bathroom, a small bottle of dish detergent, and 2 dishwasher tabs to get us started. It won't be our first choice for a condo when we return.
