Perfect Vacay!    Jun 29, 2019

The condo was AMAZING. This did not feel like a vacation rental but someone’s home. The view was stunning. My husband and I along with our son, daughter in law and 16 year old son stayed in and there was PLENTY of room, we never felt like we were tripping over each other! We loved it so much we’re canceling our southern Caribbean cruise for our 30th anniversary next year and coming back! Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us!

Yearly Spot    Mar 16, 2019

We have stayed at Ariel Dunes with these owners multiple times, for many years now. My girls and I love everything about it. The owners well maintain everything, they take great pride in their condos. The white sand beach is gorgeous here and the views are amazing. Destin is a very laid back relaxing atmosphere with plenty of things to do. I would highly recommend this condo and these owners!

Cant say enough wonderful things!    Nov 03, 2018

This place is AMAZING!! We haven't been taking regular vacations (outside of visiting family). But after one trip here, we now want to come back EVERY year. Getting ready to book this years trip! This place is spectacular! And you will not find owners who treat you better. They checked when we got there and when we left to make sure everything was perfect!

Erika Halburnt's reply:

You are too kind! We love having guests like you & you make it easy! We look forward to having you guys every year (sometimes 3 times a year haha)...I look forward to your text or call every year :) Cant wait to get your trip scheduled for this year!

Perfect abode    Sep 29, 2018

The condo, view, and beach are absolutely stunning. The whole family had a wonderful time and have requested we stay here every year now for our family vacation. The condo is very inviting and makes you feel at home. It is not over the top to where you feel as if you are going to break something very expensive, so that gives you so much ease of mind, especially with little ones. The owners are fantastic and are so easy to work with. I can not wait to return this year.

Erika Halburnt's reply:

We are so thankful that we met you guys a few years back and since you guys have kept coming back, year after year! We love having guests like you guys!

Perfect home away from home!    Aug 04, 2018

We stayed at this beautiful true ocean view home / condo for a week and it was not long enough! The view was breathtaking, condo was clean and convenient to literally everything we love about destin area including shopping and restaurants! The pool is large and has a great zero entry for the kiddos. We love being able to take a break from the sand and just do the pool. So this is a plus in our book for sure. Overall, Emerald Coast Escapes is the perfect home away from home and the owners are a gem to work with!

Erika Halburnt's reply:

Thanks so much! We loved having you & look forward to having you guys back! We are so happy you enjoy it as much as we do!

Kylie M.

Ready to book my next trip!    Apr 07, 2018

Amazing condo with an amazing view.. we’ve seen dolphins THREE times so far right outside of our condo, close to shore. The condo itself is stunning and my two little girls LOVED it! The sand is so white and the water is so clear, you can see right through to the bottom. Such a gorgeous area and very kid friendly. I already can’t wait to come again.

Erika Halburnt's reply:

Thanks Kylie! So glad you guys have had such a wonderful time!

Emily Berger

A must!    Mar 31, 2018

Thanks so much, Emily! We are glad you guys had a great time!

Don't almost miss your week, like week did! Hurry and get your dates!    Mar 24, 2018

We recently stayed here and can't wait to go back!! The condo was amazingly well kept and the owners were extremely helpful and kind! The beach and view were gorgeous and we made so many outstanding memories! Highly recommended!! 

Erika Halburnt's reply:

Thanks so much Sheila! We were happy to have you and your family!

Beach babies!    Mar 24, 2018

This place is beautiful and we had such an amazing time  :) My beach babies said they never want to leave!! We had a blast!!

Erika Halburnt's reply:

Thank you Brittney! We are glad you and the kids enjoyed yourself! They obviously are smart, not to want to ever leave!

Unit is Amazing    Feb 24, 2018

This unit is amazing. There is plenty of room so you dont feel like you are on top of each other. The view is stunning from the huge patio. The 2 pools are resort style and if you are a beach person there is none better!! The owners are fabulous to deal with! Book your next vacation now!!

The Fridley Family

Loved the condo, the view, and the owners!    Jul 29, 2017

Our family had such an amazing time. The condo is absolutely beautiful and Destin is just genuinely a beautiful place. It made me want to pack my stuff up and move here. I'm trying to remember why I live in Ohio! I would totally do it again in a over and over and over again! Ryan and Erika (the owners) are so wonderful to deal with. If I had any questions, I text her and she was always available. which i really appreciated...I am sure it was annoying at points, since it was our first time! It was our first time, but most def wasnt our last!
