Hidden Dunes condo description

Stay in Beach Cottage 195 and make your next vacation the best one ever! Come to beautiful Destin, Florida, to our lovely three bedroom, three bathroom beach condo in luxurious Hidden Dunes Beach and Tennis Resort, located seven miles east of downtown Destin and only steps away from the most beautiful beach you have ever seen. For you tennis players, you will be delighted with our courts, clubhouse and available private instruction from our resident tennis pro.

Hidden Dunes is a 27-acre family-oriented resort, with more private beachfront per unit than any other resort along the Emerald Coast. It is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico (no streets to cross). Our unit is a 'Carolina beach cottage', a charming bleached wood and tin roof design, reminiscent of simpler times, yet possessing every luxury. The unit sleeps eight people with plenty of room to move around.

Tucked behind lush foliage, Hidden Dunes is exceptionally private, yet only minutes away from every convenience. If the beautiful beach, emerald green ocean and top-notch clay tennis courts are not enough excitement for you, there are many nearby places to spend an hour or two. Located in an area with dozens of excellent restaurants, fantastic shopping and entertainment for the whole family, Hidden Dunes offers the best of both worlds.

The unit is decorated with relaxation in mind. The colors are restful and 'beachy' - just the right feeling for a few days away from the daily grind. It is fully equipped with every amenity you could possibly need. The living room has a sleeper sofa and loveseat, 46 inch flat screen HiDef TV with Blu-Ray DVD player, and a stereo system.

In the adjacent dining area, there are a table and chairs for six. The nearby screened porch has its own dining furniture - the perfect place for a shrimp boil lunch! The kitchen, with its snack bar, is stocked with every kind of dish, pan, glass, utensil, etc., etc., etc., you can think of. There are also a washer and dryer right in the unit. Wi-Fi is available to guests at no charge.

You will enjoy three large bedrooms with three full bathrooms. The main floor master bedroom has a king size bed, walk-in closet, its own HiDef flat screen television and DVD player and a big easy chair with ottoman. The private master bath includes a large garden-style bathtub. The second bedroom boasts a queen size bed, another flat screen HiDef TV with DVD player, and a full bathroom. The third bedroom is a spacious loft, with two twin beds, yet another flat screen HiDef TV with DVD player and a full bathroom of its own.

Last, but not least, is its location. On the second (and topmost) floor, we like to think of the condo as a 'tree house', thanks to its position in the tops of the trees. It is situated in a quiet, private inside corner of the building, allowing the back side with the large banks of windows to face into the trees and overlook the fountain and courtyard below.

This provides privacy and a delightful view at the same time. The soothing sound of the water splashing in the fountains is an extra treat you will absolutely love!

Guests will receive at check-in a free 'Amenity Card', which provides free golf, tickets to Big Kahuna water park, movie rentals, beach service (beach umbrella and two chairs) and much, much more.

                            This was our third time staying at this condo. Hidden Dunes is the best place to stay in Miramar Beach. Love the included beach service and the keyless entry. All the employees at Hidden Dunes are pleasant and accommodating. See you next summer!

                            We had a very good time while we were at Hidden Dunes. The condo is very nice and clean just like the pictures. We only went to the beach a couple of times because it rained the first few days we were there, but the walk was very short and we even called the shuttle to pick us up once because it was raining. He was very nice. we did use the beach chairs and we went to the track each day to pick up our free passes and went back and played golf and rode the go karts for free on our last night there. We really enjoyed staying in your condo which had everything we needed. Even though it rained we went bowling, went to the imax theater at Destin commons, and even played a lot of games at your dining room table. It was a very enjoyable trip and our two children 17 and 21 and another friend had a great time. Your condo is like a Dream Home! Thank you for sharing it with us I would recommend this to anyone that wants to have a good vacation and stay in a lovely cheerful place.

                            Manager response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. It sounds like you stayed very busy, and that you outsmarted the rain :-). We are in the condo ourselves right now - the worst of Tropical Storm Isaac passed through here last night. Fortunately, it was minimal in this area. Today it is windy but sunny. I hope you will come back next year. Susan

                            This was our second time at Hidden Dunes unit 195, and we had another great visit. The condo is well appointed and clean, and perfectly situated within Hidden Dunes, which is itself perfectly situated in Miramar Beach (away from the Destin crowds, and close to but not part of the mega-resort of Sandestin). In my opinion, this is the only place to stay in the greater Destin area. Thank you so much for providing beach umbrella service! The beach was never too crowded, even in June. We'll be back!

                            Manager response: Thank you! You have described our very favorite attribute of our Destin condo - its great location and yet privacy. And, in reference to your comment about the beach not being too crowded, even in June - we have found that to be true no matter when we go. Same thing for the pools. It has to be due to the exceptionally low density in that part of the greater Destin area. All you have to do is look at how many high rise buildings are nearby and you can understand why there aren't hordes of people around!

                            Thank you so very much for allowing us to enjoy your home for my niece's wedding. I loved the color scheme you had throughout your home. The most enjoyable part was the deck. It was so cool and relaxing. Listening to the waterfall and the birds outside made the mornings so wonderful. It was nice being away from all hustle and bustle of the traffic noise. Centrally located to all the shops and the restaurants were wonderful. We will be back! Thank you again.

The beach theme appeals to us city-dwellers When we are in the condo, we feel like we're in another world, away from the same-old, same-old. The color scheme, the furnishings, and especially that screened porch overlooking the fountains really appeal to us, too. I'm so glad you and your family had a great time there. Susan

                            My husband and our two young teens and I stayed at unit 195 the last weekend of September 2011. We've been going to Destin for years but this was our first time at Hidden Dunes...and now it's hard to imagine staying anywhere else! The condo was clean, spacious, and such a quick walk to the beach. The pools are beautiful--love having the hot tubs right next to them. Having the beach umbrella and chairs included each day is HUGE for me. Hidden Dunes is close enough to all the hustle and bustle of Destin, but perfectly situated away from the overcrowded parts. Booking our return visit soon!

                            Manager response: Thank you, Ashley, for your kind words. We do try very hard to keep our condo in great shape for our guests. And I couldn't agree with you more about the terrific location Hidden Dunes enjoys. You can almost tell from the sign out in front of the property that we are "hidden" from the traffic that buzzes by. Hidden Dunes enjoys the largest amount of beach frontage per capita of any other resort on the coast. It will be great to have you back again! Susan

                            Our family that includes 2 adults and 4 children recently stayed at your condo and had a fabulous time. The condo was just perfect for our family and we loved the beach decor throughout. I know the kitchen and bathrooms were recently remodeled and they all definitely looked great! We appreciated having TVs in each room, especially with 2 younger children and 2 teenagers. Having the screened in porch with the ceiling fan was a nice added bonus. The grounds were so pretty with the fountains and the pool was very large and clean. Another nice feature was the washing machine and dryer which really came in handy. Beautiful and comfortable place!!

                            Manager response: Thank you for your review! It's great to get good feedback like yours. It's also gratifying to receive specific compliments on the remodeling - it was a HUGE undertaking and, we think, well worth it. The results are gorgeous. Yes, TVs in every room, and flat screens at that! As you mentioned, the nearest pool is very large, clean, and rarely crowded. Our screened porch is probably our personal favorite feature. It is just delightful to sit out there in the evening and watch/listen to the lighted fountains in the courtyard beyond. And even in the heat of the day, with the fan turned on it is a terrific place to have a nice lunch (we especially like a shrimp boil, prepared by nearby Skipper's or Shrimper's.) So glad you liked it - maybe you'd like to go ahead and reserve it for next year?! ;-) Susan

                            Our family stayed at this cottage at the beginning of June and were extremely happy with it. It was clean, comfortable and felt like home. We really enjoyed just kicking back and making ourselves at home. The quiet location, view off the patio and short walk to the beach were all great. The master bedroom and bath was spacious and the bed was super comfortable! Our kids loved the upstairs loft bedroom and TV's in every bedroom. The updated kitchen was nice and had everything we needed. We would love to come back for another stay!

                            The cottage contained ample space for our party of six (four adults and two children). It is newly remodeled, well maintained and equipped. The unit was quiet. There is ample parking space. The owners communicated well with us. We would recommend this cottage without reservation.
