Ariel Dunes is adjacent to Majestic Sun in the Seascape Resort but worlds apart in luxury and appeal. Act now to experience everything this New Landmark Resort has to offer. If you've been to the Destin area lately, you had to have noticed the two magnificent Towers in the skyline, which are now the tallest buildings in Okaloosa and Walton Counties
Situated in the Seascape Resort Community, Ariel Dunes towers over the adjacent golf course and offers breath-taking views of the Gulf of Mexico as well as magnificent views across the golf course to the Choctawhatchee Bay.
When you enter off of Scenic Gulf Drive and proceed through the security gate, you will instantly know that you have chosen the perfect vacation destination! While pulling up in to the building's drive-thru entry court and main floor lobby, you will immediately admire the expansive pools (some of the largest in Destin) which total in excess of 11,000 square feet, as well as the large adjacent deck areas and extensive landscaping. As an added benefit the enormous pools include a section that is HEATED as well as lots of lounge chairs and several water features for the kids including the zero entry pool, a large mushroom foutain, water jets and water falls.
Following a short trip up one of several elevators, you will enter our 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit to find all that your heart desires from a luxury condo.

Reviews for this vacation condo rental in Destin, Florida
Vicki Katterhenry Lacer

The condo we stayed in was one of the nicest ones we have ever rented. It was very well kept and very well stocked. The balcony was very roomy with a beautiful view. The weather did not allow us to use it, but it would have been wonderful in nicer weather. The condo was a 5 star. There was mainly two things we were disappointed in: the pool wasn't heated and there was no hot tub. The condo was roomy and we really liked the two bedrooms. Two adult couples went and both couples had good beds with closet and drawer space. Many two bedroom condos have the second bedroom for children (bunk beds or twin beds). I would highly recommend this condo!!!
Thanks Vicki! So glad you all enjoyed it. Unfortunately the Home Owner's Association voted to not begin heating the pool until Christmas and to then heat it through April. My vote was to heat it beginning in November and take it to March 15th....but unfortunately, I was in the minority.

The condo was wonderful and so close to the beach! There is so much to do in this area! I plan to go again and stay at the same place! Top notch!!

Location is great, loved only being steps away from the beach.

Outstanding Condo in PERFECT LOCATION
June 9, 2014
Absolutely fantastic week. Everything was better than described. Condo was clean, spacious and all inclusive. Updated appliances and decor. Great view and excellent proximity to beach. Everything was great- Condo was set up for all ages in our family. I want to thank Mr Doss for his partnership and assistance in making this family vacation one that created many memories that will last forever. Beautiful beaches within 500 yards of our balcony.
May 10, 2014
Great place to stay bottom floor steps to beach very comfortable only issue was the beach chair police seems if you are not renting from the front desk you can't use there chars or umbrella on beach unless you rent them at 35.00 dollars per day now that's a rip off but great condo
Peace on earth
October 10, 2013
Our condo was beautiful and very quiet. Everything we needed. All the comforts of home but without the snow. We have been coming to Destin and Fort Walton for over 45years, we have brought over 57 people with us at different times through the years. They all fell in love with it like we did in the 60's
great place, everything was accurate in descriptio
August 25, 2013
overall great experience, property was well maintained and everything matched the description. well worth it, and will rent again!

My family and I stayed in this condo and really had a wonderful experience. As a family we consisted of 2 children under 4, my husband and I, and my parents. We were all very comfortable and had no issues whatsoever. When we first arrived we were pleasantly surprised at how extremely nice this condo looked and felt. Usually beach condo's are cozy and comfy, but they aren't always the nicest furniture and decor. This place felt like we should have payed much more for it. It really is a GREAT deal for this nice place. There was a bit of a walk to the beach, it wasn't bad at all though. The kids did great with it, they helped us pull our beach cart. The pool was amazing! It has a zero entry pool with a little splash mushroom, this was perfect for the kids. They never wanted to leave. We had an amazing time, and will definitely be trying to use this condo for future beach trips.

Gorgeous condo with the perfect touch!
April 8, 2013
This condo was amazing. The location was perfect and the ammenties were fabulous. Our family was especially apprecaiative of all of the special touches that made the condo feel like home; lots of board games, crayons, card games, DVD's, etc! Our children were happy just hanging out in the room! No fighting over TVs considering there were three, total! We were also very pleased to find beach chairs along with lots of beach toys avaialble for our use. The beds were also amazingly comfy! Everything that you needed in the kitchen was provided... what more could we ask for? One other thing that I find to be most important is the responsiveness of the condo owner; he was readily avaialble to answer questions prior to our stay and even once during our stay! I would highly recommend this property for anyone interested in spending some time in Destin! One thing worth noting: the Seascape community doesn't allow trailers. Our family pulled a very small Cargo Express trailer and upon our arrival, we were informed that those weren't permitted. I was extremely concerend, but the resort was great about finding us a space for the trailer in their maintenance lot (for a nominal fee). Just be warned. You will want to call ahead and make storage arrangements if you plan on taking a trailer.

I have two children (4 and 6 yrs old) and we took them to the beach for the first time. We were concerned because we wanted to make sure we took enough beach toys and activities to the condo for them to keep entertained for a full week. When I started to think about it, it became daunting...How were we going to pack all of that in the car with everything else we needed? When I found this condo that said it included beach/pool toys, books and games in the room, I was sold! We ended up taking three sand castle molds just incase, but we really didn't even need them. The condo has many inflatables, noodles, a bucket and sand molds, 5 beach chairs and 2 beach umbrellas. In the condo there were several board games and young adult books. If you have young kids, the only thing I would recommend you take would be some children's books. Also, for a perfect stay, a simple hand help pump would have been great to inflate some of the inflatable toys. I didn't like the idea of having to put my mouth on something that everyone else has also. We had a WONDERFUL time during our stay! The condo had nearly everything we needed. It was clean and updated with a fabulous balcony. The pool and cafe were wonderful as well. The walk to the beach was not a big deal at all. My 4 year old, who hates walking, had no problem walking because it literally only takes 5 to 7 minutes. I definately recommend staying here, I know that if we decide to return, we will absolutely stay here again!!!

THe place was beautiful....The weather was beautiful.......Short walk to the beautiful white sandy beach.....We had a fantastic time.....Close to everything you'd want to do.....Can't wait to go back.....

Condo was very nice. Very short walk to the beach. Usually the pictures are better than the actual but, in this case, it is just the opposite. Had a very good time!
September 30, 2010
This is a great place to stay! Beautiful condo with updated furnishings, appliances, etc. Great view. Although not right on the beach, your walk to the white sands is only steps away. Jeremy was great to deal with and has thought through all the details. Amazing price. We will definitely stay here again.
Perfect place to stay
April 27, 2010
We had the best time on our vacation in Fl in this wonderful condo. Everything was clean, neat, top of the line and very comfy. Loved having the huge balcony to relax on and the kitchen with appliances to cook with. Close to many things to do and see! Would love to stay here again!
November 11, 2009
We enjoyed the immaculate condo, up-to-date amenities, pools, and location! Would highly recommend.
September 30, 2009
We really enjoyed our vacation and Jeremy was great to deal with. The condo is beautiful and it was very nice to have the beach chairs, noodles, beach toys, and beach cart all on site.
two thumbs way, way up!!!!
September 1, 2009
We took our vacation here with our three children. We had a fabulous time. The place was immaculate with top notch decor and ammenities. My kids really enjoyed the pools, and we all enjoyed the beach here. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. Excellent condo. We hope to return. A wonderful bonus was the fact that the condo was full of inflatables, beach chairs, a beach cart, sand toys. Fully stocked kitchen made cooking for the family easy. The owner was excellent to communicate with and made booking the condo easy. Thanks again!

Condo was excellent--very well appointed, beds were super comfortable, and kitchen was lovely and had everything. Our fmaily of four had a very comfortable stay. Due to bad weather, we were inside a lot, and didn't feel cramped. Lots to do in the area. Would stay here again!

What a place
October 23, 2008
My family and our best friens family stayed in this condo for a week. We enjoyed it tremendously. The condo was wonderful, nicely decorated, very comfortable. It was just like being at home. Plenty of family games, close to the beach. My sons, 8 and 5, my wife, and myself all agree that this was our best vacation ever, Thank you!!

December 5, 2007
What a beautiful home! We have stayed in many timeshares across the USA & this sure beats any of them! What a joy it was to open the door and actually see that it was as pictured and promised. After travelling with my in-laws 1600 miles,loosing his billfold on the airplane,then of course whose luggage was misplaced with the Suit in it for my sons Naval Graduation the next morning. Of course he knew it was a scheme against him! Then my mother in law lost her purse. It was nice to finally get to our room! It was Perfect! Thanks! God Bless!
Nicest Place I've stayed in Destin!!!
October 18, 2007
I took my family to Destin and found this condo online and thought it looked nice. I had no idea that the pictures didn't do it justice. It felt just like home and I'll plan to stay there every time I go to the coast. Great location and price! I am still in disbelief for the great deal it was! We didn't want to leave.

Best Vacation Ever
October 2, 2007
We had never been to the Destin area and this was the best time we have had at the ocean. Jeremy was great to deal with and the condo was fabulous. If looking for a great place to stay at a very reasonable price, this is the place. We hope to be returning there next year. We could not have asked for a better place to be.

This condo is incredible, it is decorated beautifully, has a fantastic view and a convenient location. It was awesome to be able to sit on the HUGE balcony, have a meal and enjoy the view of the gulf. We cannot wait to return.
May 24, 2007
We had a wonderful time at the condo. I cannot say enough things about how nice this particular unit was. It is beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you need for a great family vacation. We had 6 of us staying and there was more than enough room for all of us. Our friends stayed in another unit while we were there and it was not near as nice as this one. And the owner is extremely pleasant to deal with. The pools at the complex are beautiful and you are a 5 minute (or less) walk from beautifully kept beaches. I HIGHLY reccommend!

Total Relaxation By the Sea
May 24, 2007
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful condo in April, 2007 and we were thrilled with all of the conveniences this condo offered. The location was directly across the street from the beach and an easy drive to shopping, dining and sightseeing.
We have been coming to Destin for seven years and this place was one of the nicest . The property was pretty and well maintained. Hope to come again next May.

You can have confidence when you reserve this condo. We were blown away by the location, the views, and the interior design. This condo towers over the massive pools, while giving you a post card view of the gulf. Parking and access to the condo was a breeze. The upgrades in this condo made it easy to relax when not at the pool/beach.
This classy unit will be our first choice for when visiting Destin. The owner was great to work with and all was handled professionally. We love this condo!
Rex, Knoxville, TN
