About Michael & Erika

We are longtime beach-lovers from New Orleans, who fell in love with Destin years ago. We have always desired to have a slice of paradise of our own to enjoy. We feel that this lovely beach town should be shared with the world. We own Real Estate in New Orleans and wanted to branch out to our favorite get away.

Michael & Erika purchased this condo in 2012

Why Michael & Erika chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have viewed many other condos and homes in Destin through the years, none compare to Ariel Dunes. The upscale units are a plus, 'nice floor plan, granite, quality cabinets, everything is well built'; along with the amenities.. which isn't easy to come by in the Destin area. We love the location, it's a perfect fit.

What makes this condo unique

Ariel Dunes is in the heart of Old Scenic Hwy 98 & Miramar Beach. This resort has it all, wonderful on-site restaurant, bar, tennis, basketball, beach volleyball, relaxing pools, golf, breathtaking views of the lovely sunsets and emerald green water.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful condo. Destin beaches are like no other. We enjoyed the sand & surf so much. The heated pool got a lot of use as well. The large patio overlooking the ocean was a place we found ourselves enjoying morning/noon/&night.

Tips: You will need a lot of sunscreen! Get to the beach early & set up your chairs/umbrellas/blankets and leave them until you're ready to go down after breakfast. Pompano Joes is a must. The grilled crab, amberjack blackened & reggae roll were delish! Fudpuckers was fun. Fed the alligators & try the appetizer platter and hushpuppies, really everything was tasty. Goggles and snorkels were used in ocean to find sand dollars, hermit crabs, sea snails and to look at the fish. When trying to find sand dollars look for a small hole (black dot) skim the sand & they'll be underneath. We were out about chest deep. The shopping center where Amc Theaters is located is also a fun place to go. Brookstone has good massage chairs you can try for free. Zoe's kitchen was delicious & located there as well.

We got to see two stingrays and a manatee from the balcony.

Our first trip to Destin,Fl was nothing short of amazing!!! And the condo was just icing on the cake. We loved every minute inside & outside Ariel Dunes I. Hope to come back someday.

It was very nice. Thank you

  • 5 of 5

My grandson, Stephen, wrote in your guest book, a very nice and long

review. I could never find the person in the office when I would go down to see her thus I never received a map or information. Stephen fished in the lake quit often. We found a number of good places to eat on Highway 30 and enjoyed

them very much especially the Crab Trap. The deep sea fishing was a nice


Thank you Michael for being so gracious

Owner's Response: Hi Martha, We thank you & your grandson for submitting your kind review! I'm so sorry to hear about your difficulty getting a map, I'm sure that anyone in the office could have assisted you. My wife tells me now that we did have a copy in our living room TV console table drawer with all the brochures and restaurnat menus "if it's still there" . We are happy to hear that you and your family were out and bout enjoying a few good eateries...there are so many to choose from. Wow! I bet the deep sea fishing was wonderful! You're welcome, happy to be of assistance or to make sure y'all are content. All the best, Michael & Erika

Wonderful lanai and ocean view

  • 5 of 5

I looked extensively for a condo for our summer trip with our 2 teenage sons. This condo is beautiful, clean, and there is everything you will need for an awesome stay. I think we all enjoyed the large balcony the most. Any meals at the condo were out on the lanai overlooking the ocean with those lovely ocean breezes. The condo has all you need for any type of cooking, we made blended drinks and even cookies in the oven. The owners, Michael and Erika are truly a pleasure to work with. Interacting with them was superb, they truly cared what we thought of the condo and how our stay was. The building and pool were also clean and very well kept. The Cabana Cafe restaurant was also very good which we had takeout a few times and ate on our balcony. Having never been to Destin before I did not know that this area where the condo is located actually Miramar Beach is a bit down the road from very busy DESTIN. The traffic in Destin was pretty heavy. For us it worked well. We would definitely recommend to others and would love to come back someday.

This was one of the nicest places we have rented.

  • 5 of 5

After three years , due to my husbands health we were able to come back to Destin.

We were lucky to rent this unit as it was so comfortable, and well stocked with all anyone

would need.

The owners were so accommodating and so easy to work with.

Would recommend the unit to friends and relatives.
