The condo overlooks the white beaches and aquamarine waters of Destin. I was with my family of (6) with 2 in college and 2 in HS. The unit was perfect configured to meet our sleeping needs. The kitchen was modern and functional, and the common areas were more than adequate for our needs. We spent a lot of time on the porch enjoying breakfast and watching the dolphins, and in the evening, enjoying sunsets with cocktails. The condo is also convenient to shopping, food, and restaurants. It was a real winner

We especially liked the wonderful ocean views from the living room, master bedroom, and large balcony. The condo had everything we wanted: lots of room, comfortable furniture and beds, well equipped kitchen, and close to dinning, shopping and golf. We loved the small gated building and convenience to the exercise room, hot tub, pool, and beach. We would recommend this first class unit to anyone.
“We had a great week, beautiful weather, in a beautiful condo.”

The Dunes condo# 204 was lovely. The many security codes were a bit overwhelming at first, but we felt very safe and secure there. The pool and
hot tub were enjoyable as was the beach. We also used one of the grills one
night which was a nice amenity. The cost was substantially more than we have paid in the past but we will certainly consider staying there again next year. Staying in a place with fewer units meant quick elevator use and a quiet
place at night minus loud partiers. My only suggestions for making it better
would be, more trash bags for the kitchen, and clearer security code instructions.

The code didn't work, fairly quickly resolved, but still. The gate entry is the worst, you have to get out of your car to key in the code?
Condo floor plan is great, very open, spacious bedrooms. Kitchen is nice, the under counter ice maker should be required in any condo. But the kitchen was pretty thinly equipped, random glassware, little plasticware, no large cooking pots/pans, etc. Nice, but needs some attention. Very nice coffee maker with built in grinder.
Linens are pretty standard fare, sheets pretty thin, not the top qualifty 800 plus thread count you'd expect in a truly top-end condo. All of the pillows need to be replaced.
Nice big dining table, but 6 chairs? If you have more than 6 some get to sit at the breakfast counter of the kitchen. Again, needs just a bit of tweaking. As does the furniture. Very comfy but getting a bit used. Spots on the couch, etc. No linens for the pullout bed. In 2011 a top end home or condo will have LCD flatscreens. Not here. No biggie for us, we don't come to the beach to watch tv, but another little item that keeps this place from being truly top shelf.
Balcony is awesome, full width. View is fantastic. The balcony had 5 working chairs and 1 table for a condo that will sleep up to 12. Take turns enjoying the view? Again, a detail that in a top end unit would have been tended to.
This is a very nice condo, the location is awesome, the beach uncrowded because it has such a large beach frontage for just 20 units. A lesson to be learned if you are thinking "highrise." It looks very upscale, is very open and large. It just isn't quite what it could be because a lot of litle things, yet you are paying pretty much top Destin dollar. I would definitely stay here again, but only in shoulder season when the rate reflects the level of condo a bit better. With some upgrades here and there this would be a luxury unit. But understand, it is pretty darned nice as is!

For our stay, we brought three generations together ranging in age from 2 to 65 years old. This condo was perfect for all of us (10 total people). The beach accesss was awesome and not too crowded. Chairs were set up and taken down for us every day. We used the pool and fitness room daily (they are small, but just enough). The balcony was large enough to store our bikes and still have plenty of room for eating and enjoying the view from it. The kitchen was well appointed (the separate, under counter ice maker was a huge hit!) and parking was never an issue (we had 3 cars). The condo has a great, open, one-story floor plan so we never felt crowded or separated by three levels. It was also appointed well from a technology perspective...great cable, wireless, DVD players, etc. The building has an elevator and carts available for arrival, departure and shopping trips in between.
We have done the rental thing on numerous occassions and this one ranks up at the top. I highly recommend it!

Unit 204 was a delight. The quality of the space was superb. Great design, great quality, very comfortable. The back porch was wonderful. We enjoyed opening the large glass doors and listening to the ocean.
