We had 3 families, 6 adults and 10 kids and there was more than enough room for all of us. The manger was always accessible and helpful when questions arose. The location was great, right across from the pool and volleyball and tennis courts. Short walk to the beach. It gets a 5 because it is exactly what I expected from website. Im sure there are fancier places to stay, but for the price and quality of vacation we were looking for, this was great.

Aqua Vista is exactly as represented in their video. The home is HUGE and well appointed with everything you might need. Two couples shared this home for the month of February and we literally had to use our cell phones to find one another. I have dealt with many agencies and owners of rentals over the years and have never experienced the level of service we received from owner, Anthony. We had several issues upon our arrival and one phone call resulted in an immediate response and solution to our problem. Even though this area experienced a colder than normal winter, the gas fireplace made for some cozy evenings. My personal favorite spots in the house were the sunroom, where the sun poured onto my back sitting in the south window while I sipped my morning coffee; and the rooftop veranda to watch the sunset over the Gulf! Being from the midwest, it doesnt get any better than that.

Our stay here was perfect and easy. Right across the street from the beach access and next door to Alvins for easy stops for ice, ice cream and souvenirs. 10 minute walk down the beautiful white sand beach to the best restaurant in town, Pompano Joes (we ate there 3 out of 4 nights!!). Drove into Destin for parasailing (though we couldve done that from right down the beach) and a dolphin watch cruise. We had 3 families; 4 adults and 4 four kids ages 12-16. The third floor was a perfect place for the kids to all be. The condo had just about everything we needed to cook a few meals. The owners were very quick to respond to questions that we ever since we made the reservation. I would highly recommend this property and would love to come back.

My brother just returned from work out of country. We spent our family Christmas in Florida. This house was very spacious for our family of 12. We had plenty of room between all three floors. The living room was very comfortable for watching TV and playing games. The air conditioning unit kept us very comfortable. Access to the beach was right across the road. Unfortunately we were not able to enjoy much walking around to shops and restaurants due to the weather, so we drove. There are so many shopping places and restaurants within a few miles of the house. I would recommend this rental to everybody I know. The house was very clean and organized. We will be returning again soon for vacation.

My family made our first trip to Destin. This is the first time renting via VRBO. We normally use hotels, but just needed a place to have meals instead of always going to a restaurant. Restaurants can become a hassle and quite expensive as you have to eat throughout the day. Well, this place fit the bill. Henceforth we will probably take this path instead of using hotels and use the owners of this condo first. Below are a few of the things I really enjoyed about this condo. * It was right on the beach. We literally could exit the the condo and fall onto the beach. * Parking was free since it was part of the rental. * It is centrally located to every thing in the Destin area. * The view from the balcony was excellent. * It was quiet. * Dealing with Anthony was easy and answered everything I wanted to know. In fact, the reason we chose this site initially was the quick response to an availability query. We decided to go on a whim and were choosing between Hilton Head and Destin. We will return and probably try one of the other properties since my mother in law will travel on the next visit. * Refrigerator kept everything cold, as it should be, but again we wanted to eat more in the condo. * Stove was excellent. * The price was excellent. Overall it was a better and more inexpensive option than the hotel. * The pool was great. * My wife and children had a wonderful time and thats what I wanted and got from Destin. Well be back. What a great trip and next time we will have a more exhaustive stay.

This Condo is in the perfect location. Near the best restaurants, Shopping and beach activities. The pictures dont begin to show the elegance and comforts that are included. Large rooms beautifully decorated. Spotless and well equipped kitchen. Restaurant on site was a favourite for lunch at the pool. Beach service is a huge extra. Pool and both hot tubs have beautiful view of gulf. Nearby is Pompano Joes a favourite dinner spot and McGuires is a 10 minute drive. Outlet Mall is 1 stoplight away. Weve traveled a lot for beach vacations and will have a standing reservation for this wonderful spot. Owner checked with us upon arrival and during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed.

I recently rented Surfside condo from Anthony, and from the very beginning when I booked it back in December he was really great about responding to every mail and was great to work with. We was in there for a week and from the time we checked in at Surfside the staff that is there was very nice and great help. With everyone checking in at 04:00 they opened up the employee elevate to assist everyone in getting into their rooms. And when we would leave and come back the employees that was working the front desk always spoke to us when he walked in or out. The condo was great and in a great location very convenient to everything that we do in Destin. I would stay here again and I will recommend him to all my friends. The condo was clean and had all the appliances that you needed while staying for a week. Anthony was just so easy to work with and very responsive to all your emails or phone calls. I also let him know some minor things that was broken and he was very open to hearing those things as well. I look forward to going back to his rentals very soon!

Excellent condo for 6 adults and 4 preschoolers. Our balcony faced the ocean, and we had a wonderful view. The pool was awesome! It was so kid friendly, the children wanted to stay at the pool most of the time rather than go to the beach. The beach was right across the street, and several restaurants and stores were within walking distance. I would highly recommend Ariel Dunes Tower 1 for your stay in Miramar Beach. The staff was very helpful as was Anthony through whom we booked the condo.

What can I say...probably the best place weve stayed yet in Destin. Here are some cool things you should know: * We were able to arrive a little early in the day. * The unloading area is large and covered. * Four elevators close by and they are FAST! * The condo is part of the Seascape Resort and you get access to pretty much everything! * The location is ideal. Some restaurants in walking distance as well as some shops but everything else is a pretty close drive (heavy traffic is an issue some times of days) * Nicely decorated condo * Huge balcony with great views of the beach coast * Very short walk to the beech * Master bed/bath is HUGE * Second bedroom has direct access to the second/shared bath which was nice for my parents who joined me. * Third bedroom has bunks and they were a touch small for my 17 and 14 YO boys * Tons of parking (we even had a trailer with our dirt motorcycles with us) * Anthony (the Owner) was very very easy to communicate with whether it was by email, phone or text. NON-CONDO ITEMS * We did parasailing with XtremeH20. AWESOME!!!! * We did an 8 hour deep sea fishing expedition on the Al-Lin. Wonderful Captain. Nice crew. But we were disappointed with the lack of time with lines in the water. 2.5hrs out of 8 was just too little. Find another activity! * We brought our motorcycles did off-road riding at Hard Labor Creek Offroad. The Owner allowed us to ride on Tuesday even though they were closed. Had the whole place to ourselves. Check it out if you are into a Surf and Turf kinda vacation * My parents hit the air museum and got to see the Blue Angles practicing as a bonus! It did get a little loud in the parking lot area at night, but hey...what can you expect on spring break. If the doors/windows are closed its not an issue.

My family and I had a wonderful time in Destin. The condo was great! The condo was perfect for two adults and 2 children. The kids really enjoyed the pool that was perfectly located on the property. I absolutely loved how the back deck opened right up to a grassy area for the kids to run out and play and pools being so close. The landscape and pools were immaculate. The short walk and private access to the beach was great as well. We definitely plan to return!

The condo was just as advertised and we were very pleased! My family of 6 (kids ages 3,6,9,12) loved the the condo complex - very family friendly with the green space, playground and pools. The grounds are very well kept and maintained. One pool was heated and both are saltwater (no smelling like chlorine all the time!) The condo was very clean and had everything we needed to cook meals. A very short walk to the beach across the street - so convenient its easy to run back to the condo if you need something. The beach is fabulous. Owner is very quick to answer email and questions and was very helpful. We plan to return to this complex next year!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this lovely beachfront condo. It was exactly as shown on the website - great location with easy access to the beach. We loved our early morning walks along the great stretch of beach.The condo was nicely furnished and had all the items needed for cooking in the kitchen. We enjoyed the facilities within the Majestic Towers complex, the coffee shop where I could pick up my newspaper from the box each morning, the indoor pool and outdoor jacuzzi. Anthony the owner was prompt to respond to questions on two occasions and was very helpful. This is a great location with restaurants and shopping handy - we enjoyed eating seafood at Sharkeys, the shopping and the movie theatres at nearby Pier Park. We definitely would recommend this property to our friends. Thank you Anthony for a great 5 week stay in your condo!

My family decided to take an exploratory trip to Panama City Beach and the surrounding area for the Thanksgiving holiday and discovered this condo was a nice little gem. It had all the amenities - kitchen, bed and the sofa couch was even comfortable. The view was outstanding! It was a little cold, but the trip wasnt about getting in the water, it was about my daughters fondness for the beach. It worked perfectly. This property and others from Anthony will be our first choice if available. One last plus compared to other places was the Internet access. It was outstanding for a high rise facility. We didnt go there for that, but this part of an out of town stay could be the difference where I would stay for a whole week.
