    Great condo, wonderful gulf view. Modern, clean building. Great access to shopping and supplies. Unit has 1 bedroom with 2 bunks in the hall.

    Great vacation...great choice in ariel Dunes!!!

    Happy Family

    My family and I stayed in ariel Dunes 2306 and had a wonderful time!!! Check in and check out was very easy. The condo was very clean and nicely furnished with everything needed. We will book this condo again next time we visit the area!!!

    small but a great view


    we liked the condo but to be better you should replace the big unit for the t.v. by just a small table and add a little table and two chairs for having your meal.

    Best Family Vacation

    The Wrights

    Our stay at areil Dunes #2306 through Southern Vacation Rentals was by far our best family vacation ever. The condo with the location, view, and ammenities couldn't have been any better. The Condo was extremely comfortable and had everything needed for our stay. The Cabana Grill food was good (the pizza is great). Loved the golf course. Just had a great time! Will surely go back and stay in the same condo again. The staff at Southern Vacation rentals are extremely and helpful, and professional, and very personal. Will use them again and again.

    Very relaxing

    My family and I enjoyed are stay. We would defiantly recommend other families to stay with southern vacations. We will be visiting you again in the future.

    Wells Family Spring Break 2011

    Fun Loving Mom

    Overall it was nice. But we had problem that was not taken care of in a timely manner. I really love the condo, but the smoke alarm was going off all the time. The mgtment staff came to fix it a day in a half later, but that did not stop still was going the they just removed it...Omg. Well this was my first time staying at this location with this mgtment company and Yes I will give Southern Resorts another try. Thank you in advance

    Outstanding Decor and view!


    The condo was beautiful and spared no detail in delighting the eye. There were a few drawbacks worth mentioning, however. In the master bedroom, the box spring was extremely noisy; even the slightest of movement disturbs the sleep of others. There is inadequate storage in the kitchen if you intend to store gorceries. What should be (and looks like) the pantry is actually a hot water heater closet leaving no place to store non perishable items except all over the counter top. All cabinet space is already used. Lastly, the tub drains very slowly and the drain is visible showing the need to be cleaned. This made it very difficult to get sand out of the tub as it settles no matter how much effort is made to assist it down the drain. Outside of these areas of criticism, the unit looks exactly like its representation on the website, it is an inviting place to spend time indoors and is a good value.

    Southern Vacation Rentals is delighted you took the time to express the enjoyment of this unit and your vacation. We do want to apologize about that mattress and box spring and advise that the Owner has replaced these items with a new mattress and new box spring. Southern has also put in new slats on both the Queen and Master. This has taken care of the problem. Again, thank you for being a Southern Guest and we look forward to your future stay.

    Comfortable condo with awesome view..


    Southern Resorts is a very professional and customer focused company to deal with...All of their staff that I dealt with were very pleasant and helpful...The ariel Dunes II unit I stayed in was nicely furnished and the kitchen in particular was very well stocked to cook anything you could want..There is not a lot of storage space for food in kitchen cabinets if you are here for extended stay and there is no dining room table in this unit..(3 bar stools at counter instead)..This was not an issue for me..but if you have a big group and want to eat in the unit..keep it in mind.. many condos..the walls were a little thin here..and the young residents next door who seem to be permanent residents are prone to many nights of loud music with thumping bass between 2 and 6 a.m...I brought this to the attention of Southern Resorts and they indicated they would try to address the issue with their a. D. property hopefully this is a non-issue in the future..Miramar Beach area is great for runs..and walks on sidewalks or beach..and lots of shopping and restaurants within minutes...Workout room is small but functional and clean..and the equipment was working well..and weather was too cool for pool swimming..but I did encounter a few other guests who said water was very cold..but it was a very cool January...Elevators are very fast..never had much wait..and lots of parking..Overall..a good experience..

    Very clean an updated condo


    We have stayed here a few times in the past and have loved the location. The condo is very clean and has wonderful views on both sides. So many positives. The only issue is the worn out bed in the master and the noisy fan in the master. Would love to stay again!!



    Convienent location! Very relaxing! Sent my parents there for their 25th wedding anniversary and they loved it!

    Would be 5 stars if you would replace the mattress


    Absoutely gorgeous view from the 23rd floor!! Nice and clean and I'm picky about that. Loved having the nice new washer and dryer in the condo, kitchen was well stocked, view from the balcony was amazing. The only complaint was the bed, but it is a big complaint because we there a whole week and slept terrible on it. It is so worn out it was just awful. However, if they replace the mattress then I would schedule my whole vacation around getting this particular room. It was that nice!

    Would highly recommend


    Very satisfied with our visit. Would stay again for sure. Great views.

    Great Condo

    Happily Satisfied

    Just about everything was perfect. The view. The location. The condition of the condo. The weather. The only thing that I would change is the queen size bed, because the mattress was pretty bad and squeeky. It could stand to be replaced. Everything else was great.



    We received good service from Southern Resorts while we were there and after we got home. My wife left some of her articles in the condo, and Southern Resorts retrieved them and sent them to us. The condo was decored really nice. the paint scheme was real eloquent. The property was easy to get too, and it wasn't that for from the beach. The views from the 23rd floor were amazing. The staff at the Ariel Dunes office was not much help.

    The stay was more than I could ever dream it to be.

    My husband and I take alot of trips together and stay at alot of nice...Super nice places...This one surpasses them ALL!!!First of all Southern Resorts staff was EXTREMELY accomodating and helpful. The condo had everything you could possibly think of to make it feel like a home away from home right down to the blender and mixer (in the cabinet above the microwave). The pictures actually pales in comparison. Nice granite countertop, quiet washer and dryer, and a simply impeccable view of the gulf...You can spend your nights on the patio listening to the waves hit the shore (Very Tranquil!) And location, there is no better one...You are probably 5 minutes away from the Silver Sand Outlet Mall (Which is also Magnificent) and right across the street from the beach...Believe me when I say you are not that far (You can hear the ocean from your Balcony...Very Close!) And within walking distance from many nice restaurants on the beach...Believe me when I say the walk is so peaceful and beautiful you won't mind the stroll...The Cabana Cafe that is on site is nice also...Even has one night w/ a live band. This condo is perfect for a party of 2 or 4 but may be a bit small for a more larger crowd...If you are looking for a place to hang w/ the girls maybe you and a few close friends this is your answer. Great Honeymoon Spot...This condo will definitely see us again!!!

    Very nice, clean, and what a View!


    We had a great time staying here. The price was very good and the condo was very clean. It was fully furnished with everything you could ask for and the view was amazing. The walk to the beach was not that far and the water in Destin is always awesome. Southern Resorts were very helpful in helping me choose the right location to stay at after seaching VRBO forever and not coming up with anything. Highly recommend this place and SR! Brandon

    emerald calm waters!!!

    Brandi and family

    Besides issues with key code (we were locked out in the middle of the night), this condo was amazing. Tastefully decorated and very clean. The view of the ocean was stunning. The only way we could of enjoyed it more, is if we had another week to stay!! Our son is in a wheelchair and found the condo very spacous for our need's. The only issue was the inablility to get him in the bathtub to get the sand off, due to the glass door's. I don't think this will deter us from returning to this unit. This was the first time my husband and I had been to the beach in 25 to 30 years. We plan to make this a yearly trip for many years!

    We had a relaxing & fun family vacation!


    The condo was beautiful and so nicely updated. We felt very comfortable there and enjoyed the beautiful beach, pool area and golf very much. We had perfect weather! We loved seeing all the growth and new restaurants and shops in Destin since we have been there last. We would definitely recommend Southern resorts to our friends!

    Beautiful Vacation!


    The condo was clean and decorated beautifully! It lacked nothing and had all the convienences of home. The view from the balcony was incredible; you could see the beach, the pools, etc. We had a great time and can't wait to book another vacation there!!!

    We had a very relaxing time. The condo had everything you need. We loved the view out both sides, the front out our balcony was of the beach as far a you could see. The back was of the bay and a golf course. It was amazing. I would love to stay there again in room 2306 perfect views. Thanks sooo much for having us!



    Had a wonderful time, and loved the condo. Beautiful view!!!
