If you don't have to be directly on the beach , but enjoy the beach view and miles of coastal Gulf views and Choctawatchee Bay , then Ariel Dunes is the place for you. The 'million dollar' views from high rise balconies is something to behold during sunsets.

Amazing what can I say about this true paradise I rented a 3bedroom 3bath condo in building 2. Everything was clean and smelled fresh with balconies in the livingroom and in the master bedroom which had a king size bed and the queen size room had a balcony as well. The living room was over sized and had space enough... More

After reading reviews I was nervous about renting condos here. For some reason I booked them 1st then read reviews. I normally do the opposite. I thought about cancelling my reservations after a lot of negative comments I read because I use trip advisor a lot and rely on the reviews when I make a decision. But upon my arrival... More

We recently rented a condo through VRBO at Ariel Dunes II. My review hasn't posted yet, and we rented the first week of July. We arrived at this condo (Ariel Dunes II 1606 rented by Chico Properties) on July 2nd and it was disgusting. The walls were dirty, the sheets hadn't been washed, and the furniture was damaged. Everything was... More

We looked everywhere on the Seascape site to leave a review and couldn't locate it. This has been the most disappointing stay we've ever had in destin and we come 1-2 times per year. We sent this email to the seascape support email with 1 night remaining and still did not and have not received any response. The pictures of... More

As I write this review, my wife and I are on our second of five nights at the Ariel Dunes 2 Unit 605. We arrived to find filthy carpet, filthy walls, and filthy beat up couch, and what appeared to be dried "bodily fluid" on the dirty comforter on the bed. A quick shower revealed a tub that would not... More

This is our second trip that we have stayed at Ariel Dunes and it has been wonderful! Great view! Great pool! Beautiful beach! I couldn't ask for more! They have a wonderful restaurant in the building that has live music at night and great food. We have had a wonderful time!

We visit Destin every year for vacation and decided to stay at Ariel Dunes for the first time this year. I booked our rooms and the pictures online looked fabulous. We arrived early in the morning exhausted. While we were unpacking I noticed our room had not been cleaned. There was food and hair in the floor. The sheets were... More

Very disappointed. Sheets were filthy; ours had dried body fluids and hair. Our sons bed had a top of pet food can left there. Disgusting... Room was small and had stale odor. Not on the beach, about a half mile walk. Only positive was the nice view of the ocean.

So nice. Huge Balcony. Just across the street from an amazing private beach. Fitness Center is excellent and the rooms were spotless. The are is pretty quiet considering the population and I see security nearly everytime I go outside. Very safe area in Gated Community.
