About Diane Ferreira

My husband and I had the dream of owning a condo in Destin FL and now we own two – you can also view VRBO/375984 to see our 3 Bd condo. Why travel out of the country when we can simply drive 7 1/2 hours to the look and feel of the Caribean in both the aqua water and white sand! The sand feels like powder and the people are friendly.

We are anxious to share our place with you as we cannot be there 24/7 as we would like.

We know you'll enjoy yourselves and want to come back. We look forward to making you feel comfortable and right at home.

Diane Ferreira purchased this condo in 2012

Why Diane Ferreira chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Situated in the Seascape 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 or HWY 98 and proceed through the security gate, you will instantly know that you have chosen the perfect vacation destination! Ariel Dunes offers expansive pools (some of the largest in Destin) which total in excess of 11,000 square feet and include waterfalls, as well as the large adjacent deck areas and extensive landscaping. As an added benefit to the enormous pools you'll have no problem finding lounge chairs and space to relax.

The Cabana Cafe, located on-site offers a full service bar and restaurant and even provides room service! After your first meal, provide your email and it's 10% off for the remainder of your stay. So whether you're looking for a pool-side refreshment or snack, or want dinner delivered to you, the convenience of the Cabana Cafe cannot be matched! and neither can the quality and quantity. And all for a reasonable price!

What makes this condo unique

You may enjoy catch and release fishing in the near by lakes. (eating of fish is not recommended.)

Shop at the Silver Sands Outlet Mall (largest designer outlet mall in the Southeast) about a two minute drive or go deep sea fishing on charter boats available in nearby Destin. The Emerald Coast's finest restaurants and entertainment are within a short drive at the delightful Baytowne Warf Village. You'll find glorious food and shopping, restaurants, plays, fireworks, regular live music live bands, civic events, candy shops, clothing, jewelry etc...

Twelve of the most challenging golf courses in Florida are within a twenty minute drive, including The Raven at Sandestin Resort, home of the Boeing PGA Championship Tour event. Other great courses include the Fred Couples' great championship course at Kelly Plantation, the Courses at Bluewater Bay, Fazio's Camp Creek and Greg Norman's Shark's Tooth Course. Enjoy the public courses with full service facilities including a restaurant, practice range, rental clubs, professional lessons and pro shop stocked to meet your needs.

Clean condo, plenty of room, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for me & my 3 kids. Bunk beds in hallway were too small for my 16 yr.old son so the pull out couch fit him well! There were 2 toilets & sinks which made life easier & the kitchen had everything you needed!

There was only 1 extra garabage sack so if you stay more than 3-4 days, you might want to bring some of your own.

The towels for the bathroom were nice large towels & everything was clean (could use a new shower curtain liner but it wasn't terrible).

Have stayed in other VRBO condos & this one exceeded my expectations! It was a short walk to the beach, even shorter walk to the pools & the view was spectacular!

If you need to rinse off from the beach, there are hoses/outdoor showers between the buildings by the pool & by the first condo to the right of where you drive thru it!

Diane was super helpful & responsive! Already planning my trip for next year! Thank you, Diane!

Owner's Response: Wendy, Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to write us a review and thank you for your compliments and 5 stars! We would love to have your business again next year so I wanted to let you know that the inner shower curtain is only 3 months old. It is tan and made of cloth which is supposed to be better than plastic. I am planning on changing out the outer curtain though. Also, my favorite place to wash my feet after being at the beach is at the corner of the Wyndham bldg. Sincerely Diane and Luis

Wonderful mini-vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your condo! Plenty of room for our family of four. The kitchen had everything we needed and the condo and building were very neat & clean. Very close to the beach and the on site restaurant was very good and convenient. Thanks to the owners for being so helpful before and during our stay!

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We've just finished our stay and couldn't be happier! For those new to Destin- this condo in Mirimar Beach is the perfect location! A short (seriously, not long at all) walk and you're at the community's private beach area. The condo itself was very clean and had everything our family of 5 needed. Our kids slept comfortably in the two twin bunks and on the pull - out couch. We had a few requests in regards to schedule flexibility and Diane and Luis responded quickly and were very accommodating. We will definitely consider their condo for our next trip and would recommend you do too!

Most wonderful stay at Destin, Florida

  • 5 of 5

I am a Condo property manager in Nova Scotia, Canada, and I strive for very high standards at my site. I can honestly say that this condo is in very fine condition and everything about it complimented our first visit to the beautiful Destin area. I am seriously thinking of returning next Winter and we would want to occupy this unit again. Diane and Luis are totally professional and give you a sense of well being and trust worthiness so seldom found in today`s dealings.

Thank to you both.

Perfect stay. Everything just as shown!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Diane and Luis' condo last week and had a fabulous stay. We had everything we needed (having a washer and dryer was wonderful!). We ate breakfast and lunch in the condo each day and tried new places for dinner each night. I really liked that the condo had cable so my kids could decompress for a bit as a a break from the sun. The bunks were great for my two girls (ages 11 and 7) and the queen size bed in the bedroom was comfortable. The beach was a very easy walk with lots of places to wash off sand along the way back. The pools were clean and accessible and there were always chairs available. Diane and Luis answered every question and were awesome and flexible to work with. I plan on staying again and will rent from them again, no doubt!
