About Rita Chiesa

I had a similar condo in the same resort for about 10 years, but sold it several years ago. Looking up and down the beach for another condo to purchase recently, couldn't find a better place and decided to come back to Hidden Dunes! Now the grand kids enjoy it as well!

Rita Chiesa purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rita Chiesa chose Miramar Beach

Love the natural Landscaping. Lots of shade during the days of Summer! People come back year after year, the whole property is on the beach, no Highways to cross!

What makes this condo unique

Surrounded by single homes along the beach on each side, Hidden Dunes Beach never gets over crowded!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your nice comments! (Sorry, you didn't find the lighter in the pantry, sometimes it gets misplaced), I don't mention the beach toys, they do change occasionly!

We usually combine the indoor and outdoor chairs,(8 total, plus the 5 stools)should we have a larger group! I will check on the seating feet to make them from slipping, great idea!

Great location.

Unit was perfect for what we needed. The beach service available was top notch and made the experience even better. Pools were convienent but not too close. Grills right outside back door.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Of all the cottages at the resort, this one is in the prime location. I was in the block that is closest to the beach. It was convenient to 2 swimming pools, but no so close that you heard the activity going on at the pool into the night. It was also one of the few that the back door walked out to one of the few community grills. Luckily I brought my own long stem lighter to light the grill. I would suggest the owner stock one of these in the unit for the purpose of lighting the grill.

The beach toys in the outdoor closet were appreciated. I would suggest listing these items in what is included in the unit so renters can plan accordingly. The kids loved being able to sit on the screened in porch and have their lunch passed to them through the window. The furniture could probably use some updating, and the kids did not like that it love seat and chair slid along the floor when they sat down on it. Having a 7 person unit with just 4 chairs around the table did not really make much sense.

Beautiful! Clean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our kids (ages 17, 15, 13) Destin this month for a much needed vacation. I have never used VRBO before and was a bit nervous about it. However, after talking to Rita on the phone she immediately put me at ease with her kindness and willing to answer all of my million questions. I booked her place and WOW were we pleased! It is very clean, tropically decorated, spacious and we loved it! The entire Hidden Dunes property was wonderful. The security guards were so friendly. The beach is absolutely gorgeous with the pure, clean white sane and emerald water. There are three pools but we only used the largest one which was right by our cottage, yet far enough away that you didn't hear noise. The cottage was sound proof. Rita supplies every pot, pan, dishes, utensils, pitchers, etc that you could ever need. When she mentioned that her family and grandkids stay at her cottage on vacations, I then knew it had to be a decent place. And that it was! Rita enhanced our trip with her prompt replies to questions ahead of time as well as during our stay. She is very nice. Thank you for allowing us to rent your home away from home. I highly recommend this place.

Great vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and daughter and three young granddaughters loved the beach cottage. The two little ones loved sitting on the stools on the porch to each breakfast. Our 10 year old granddaughter loves sitting at the pass through window to have her meal passed to her. The lovely shade provided by the mature landscaping made walking the paths a delight. The beach of course was great. And the beach shovels and buckets were appreciated and the chairs etc

Perfect Location! Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Rita's cottage for our spring break vacation in March! The cottage was super clean, well decorated and lovely to stay at! The kitchen had all supplies needed to have all the comforts from home. Loved that there was a washer and dryer as well! The cottage is right by the gas grills! We cooked in every night after a long day at the beach/pool! The grounds at the Hidden Dunes were amazing! Pools are a minute walk from the cottage. The beach is a 5 minute walk from the cottage! It was truly one of my favorite vacations! We will book again for sure! Thanks for offering such a great cottage! Can't wait to go back!
