Goin' Coastal is a Gulf view condo located in the Seascape Resort in the Ariel Dunes II building.  It's about a five  to seven minute walk to the beach. Beautifully furnished,  this fourth floor unit overlooks three huge sparkling pools, private resort lake (Stewart) and the clear emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. (Sleeps six, but is best suited for 2 - 4 adults or a couple with up to 4 children under the age of 16).  Sleeping accomodations include one private bedroom with queen size bed, two bunk beds in the hall and a queen-size sleeper sofa in living area. One and a half bathrooms. Tile floors throughout.  Fully equipped kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Breakfast bar with 4 stools.  55" television in living area.  42" television in bedroom.  Internet/Cable Service.  Washer/Dryer located inside the condo.  Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the spacious balcony.  The perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing glass of wine at the end of a fun-filled day.  

The Emerald Coast is known for its sugar-white beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters. It's not unusual to spot a dolphin or two swimming just offshore!  2000 feet of private beach is reserved for owners and guests.  When you are ready to sink your toes in the sand, you can hop on the resort's free tram or take a 5-minute walk to the beach via the boardwalk that crosses the private lake.  You'll see turtles, ducks, geese and maybe a crane along the way. 

If you are more of a poolside person, you won't be disappointed by the three gorgeous pools (over 11,000 square feet) or by the sparkling, clear blue pool water.  The spacious brick paver decks provide the perfect spot to relax on a poolside chaise for sunbathing or napping. 

Located in an upscale and professionally landscaped, gated community. Amenities include an 18 hole golf course, tennis and pickleball courts, gym and sauna.  The Cabana Cafe, located in the building next door, provides casual dining for lunch and dinner.  Live music available most evenings.  You can dine in or have your meal delivered to the condo. There are also several restaurants within 3 miles of the resort, family fun venues and lots of shopping too.

I'm picky    Nov 30, 2020

It's hard to please me, but this place was perfect!! Clean, cute, no goodwill-feel. I want a beachy feel and the Owners did a great job making the place homey, comfortable and cute. Silly, but our absolute favorite thing was the double slider that both open at the same time and make the balcony like another room. Perfect view and great location for pool, beach, restaurants, bars and bonfire. Thank you some for sharing this with us. You can tell you care.

Thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful beach home. The short scenic walk to the beach over the ponds was especially enjoyable for the kids. They loved counting the turtles in the water and seeing the ducks on our way to the beautiful white sand beach and clear emerald water. The weather has been absolutely perfect the entire time. We were lucky enough to find a bunch of shells and plan to use them to create memory frames for each of the kids. We spent most of our time at the beach and the pool, but did make it out and about one day. Our Jones Mandatory Family Fun Day included a trip to HarborWalk Village for a train ride & zip line experience followed by a visit to the Air Force Armament Museum. We had dinner at The Village Door Seascape to see some wonderful old friends preform, then had dessert at Moo La-La Ice Cream & Fudge and hit up Thrills for some exciting arcade games. The Cabana Cafe located at Ariel Dunes I had fantastic food as wells as delicious donuts for breakfast. Everything we needed was right here. Thank you again. We will definitely be back.

Ultimate family getaway!    May 16, 2019

review star

We stayed a week and made so many memories! Room is very clean and comfortable kitchen and laundry made life so easy for us. Minutes away from the beach and many activities within walking distance! Highlights were walking down by the beach , wine tasting, wonderful restaurants and extremely nice locals! At night sitting on the balcony with the cool breeze was another highlight of our trip with the entire family! Wife , kids , mother and step father! Also balcony looks over two huge very nice kid friendly swimming pools! We can’t wait to go back someday and will!

Beautiful place!    Jun 17, 2018

We stayed at this location for a weeks vacation. Our son and wife with there 2 daughters joined us. We had the bedroom the girls had the bunk beds and my son and his wife had the pull out couch. Very comfortable and has everything you would need. A added plus was doing our laundry at the condo before we left so when we got home it was done. We loved sitting on the balcony watching and listening. At night we would take a short walk to the ocean stop by to get a nightcap. So relaxing. Very clean and Jerry and Linda are super nice!!!!
