The community is gated! The grounds are lush and beautiful!
The beach is close by! The cottage is a luxury escape for the perfect vacation!
What more could you ask?
From the time you turn off Highway 98 into the Hidden Dunes Resort, you feel like you are on a Tropical Isle! The surroundings are so lush and green that you forget the concrete jungle you left behind. The grounds make you want to put on your shorts, kick off your shoes, and settle back in the sunshine.
As you enter your cottage, you realize that you do not have to live on coconuts and bananas to enjoy this tropical setting. You have everything you need for a group of eight to bask in the beauty that is Destin, Florida. The beach, the sun, sand, pools, and six clay tennis courts are waiting for you.
The living room area is comfortable to sit and enjoy the stereo, cable TV or a DVD, but you may rather enjoy the evening at the patio table on the screened balcony nestled overlooking the lush, quiet foliage of the beautifully landscaped grounds. The nearby fountain will lull you to total relaxation. The window pass-through from the balcony allows you to ask someone in the kitchen to hand you a snack or meal, that is, if anyone is in the kitchen instead of enjoying the balcony with you.
If you enjoy cooking up a barbeque for the gang, the grill is just below the balcony and the kitchen has all of the dishes and utensils that you will need. Of course, there is a variety of restaurants within a couple of miles, so you only have to cook if you want. Whatever you eat in this relaxing setting, you have the choice of sitting on a barstool at the counter or communing at the large dining table. You can choose whatever you like, after all, this is YOUR vacation.
You will have three bedrooms and baths, one of which is a fun loft, where kids of all ages will enjoy the spiral staircase. The loft sleeps four in their own beds and has a full bath for convenience. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and its own television with DVD, not to mention a private bath and sitting area. Use of the chess set is, of course, optional. The second bedroom is tucked away for those needing some quiet time to read, watch television, or take a little nap.
Once you have enjoyed this wonderful vacation cottage, you will want to return often to get away from the stresses of your day-to-day life. YOU DESERVE IT!
This cottage is a dream come true for the older members of our family. Even though we're scattered from Pensacola, FL, to Tallahassee, FL, to Cary, NC, we have a fun place to go for family times.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006
My sister was on a mission. After searching from one end of Destin to the other for a condo getaway for our family, she knew upon entering this complex that this was the perfect place. We've all agreed many times that she made a great choice.
We all enjoy sitting on the screened patio for our morning coffee and relaxing visits with each other. We talk about what each of us wants to do that day and what time we will meet back for dinner. After dinner we usually play a board game around the big dining table.
We loved this place so much that we actually hope to get to rent it again next summer. It was just a short walk to the beautiful beach (I would never think of taking the tram), and the condo is laying inbetween pinetrees in a quiet part of the resort. We loved to have lots of space for our family, and the condo was clean and well equipped. Not to mention, the owner seems great - always answering Messages quick and in a friendly way. Security deposit was returned without problems.
I absolutely loved staying at this property! It was clean and big and so close to the beach. We had 6 adults and it was perfect. We will definitely stay here again in the future.
We absolutely loved Hidden Dunes. Our unit was wonderful--clean, well stocked with linens and towels, glassware, dishes and pots and pans! The owners were very nice and offered suggestions for our stay. The lock box for the key was a great way to be sure it didn't get lost in the sand! The Pizza place they recommended was delicious after a long day on the beach. I loved the screened porch for relaxing and watching the very active squirrels play! The beds were comfy for a good nights sleep or an afternoon nap!! Enough room so that anyone needing a little alone time, could find a space for recharging! The dining table was perfect for family dinners as well as some hard fought card games! The walk to the beach was very pretty and not too far. A little more than 1000 steps if my fit bit was accurate. Most days a very kind shuttle driver picked us up shortly after we started our walk. The beach is gorgeous! I loved that it was a non smoking beach! Many families laughing and playing together. However, we were a bit disappointed that the umbrella chair rental group is allowed to require personal canopies and tents to stay behind their vast chair setup. Their chairs covered the entire area of the beach in front of Hidden Dunes! Many were not even occupied. On Sunday and Monday we could barely see the water from where we had to set up. Couldn't they at least lower the umbrellas for the unoccupied chairs until they were needed? The pool was a nice change of pace from the beach. Part of the larger pool was in the shade around 3;30 -4 which was nice for a break from the intense sun! We met many nice families from across the USA at the pool. My car only left the complex once! We enjoyed lunch on the beach at the Back Porch about 7 miles away. Yummy and a beautiful view! My children made the run to nearby grocery stores to pick up essentials as needed so mom could really relax! So many memories were made during our stay. Truly a dream vacation come true!
From the moment we drove onto the grounds, we loved it. Upon entering the condo, we couldn't believe how nice it was, big and roomy and very comfortable. The beach is only a short walk but a very pretty walk, loved the beach, spent many hours walking on the nice white sand. The owners were very easy to get along with and gave my wife and I a very good rate on the condo, We would go back in a heart beat.
Had a fabulous time again this year. Beautiful place to stay! Looking forward to another visit next summer!
There was lots of space for eight of us. It was super clean, the kitchen was well-stocked with utensils & stuff, and the beds were comfortable. We also enjoyed being able to use the supply of beach chairs and toys. We loved the Hidden Dunes resort area! The landscaping was beautiful, the pools were nice, and we enjoyed our short walk to the beach. We definitely want to stay here again!
Our condo is located in the beautiful Destin / Miramar region on the Florida Gulf Coast. Just a half mile from the Silver Sands Outlet Mall as well as Sandestin.
