Welcome to our Oasis! Hidden Dunes Gulfside 306 is a 1,610 square foot immaculate 3rd floor corner unit that offers spectacular gulf/beach and sunset views. This elegant unit is beautifully decorated with many upgrades. In a condo, your view is normally straight out to the beach. In this corner/end unit you have two views - straight out AND down the beach through amazing floor to ceiling windows on two of four walls in the living area! We are beach FRONT - no roads to cross. A few steps to the beach - maybe 2 minutes to walk from our front door to your beach chair!
Hidden Dunes is a beach front resort that offers 4 swimming pools (one large one is private to our building only, and one is heated during the winter months), gas grills, lighted basketball courts, shuffle board, horse shoes, a fitness center with his/hers locker rooms and sauna, a professionally staffed tennis center (for the 4th year in a row, ranked a 'Top 50 Tennis Resort in the USA' by the publication 'Tennis Online') with 6 Rubico clay courts (fee charged - and they can help arrange matches if desired), a catch-and-release fishing lake, and 24/7 professionally staffed onsite security at the resort’s gated entrance. Hidden Dunes is less than 3 minutes away from fantastic outlet and retail shopping, awesome restaurants, and upscale grocery stores that provide a good variety of offerings (including organic!) - just like home! There are several great golf courses close by!
The property is beautifully landscaped and includes reflecting pools with flowing fountains and scenic walking trails. During season, two chairs and an umbrella are provided to guests at no cost, and there’s a lakeside snack bar that cooks up casual eats (in the summer months).
It's impossible to be stressed at Hidden Dunes beachfront condo 306! The sounds of the waves gently rolling in, the sparkling aqua water and the warm sunshine reflecting off the white sand fill this luxurious vacation rental with a tranquil ambiance. The calming Gulf breezes can be heard from each room -whether it's the spacious master suite with gulf front balcony access or the northern bedrooms overlooking the lake and fountain. Each moment spent at Gulfside 306 is like a day in paradise.
An East Indies flair complimented by rich wood furnishings and terra cotta tile floors add an air of traveling abroad while the fully stocked kitchen allows entertaining friends to actually be entertaining! Plus, a high speed elevator, plenty of parking and a private (brand new) washer and dryer take away any inconveniences. Relaxing on the gorgeous balcony after a great day at the beach and a delicious dinner is simply serene.

While we are not in Sandestin Resort, it is right next door to us, so dining/entertaining at Baytowne Wharf is close by.

About the owner: We are from Texas, and fell in love with the Destin area and its world-class white sandy beaches when we visited as new parents several years ago. When we were looking for real estate to buy for our family, we fell in love with all the amazing amenities that Hidden Dunes provides! We particularly love the views from the condo balcony and the living room (you don't even have to go outside to enjoy them!). We also love the close proximity of great restaurants and amazing shopping (both outlet and retail) less than three minutes in either direction from the resort entrance. It takes about 1 minute to walk to the resort Fitness Center when we need to squeeze in a workout! And, because we have a child we love being able to be out on the balcony while still able to keep an eye on him inside the unit. It's perfection defined!
Why the Owner Chose Hidden Dunes: We've stayed in many different Destin area condos over years, and this one had the best combination of location, beachfront acreage, upscale amenities, and fantastic management!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The views from the inside of this end/corner unit condo are spectacular! You don't even have to go outside to enjoy the view down the beach. Most condos you see straight out to the ocean. Ours you can look straight out AND down the beautiful beach. It's awesome to have a glass of wine and watch the sun set from the living room! In the fall/winter/spring we enjoy leaving the doors open all day and night, to let the fresh air in! We also love that the Master bedroom has a door to the balcony. Most nights we choose to drift off to sleep hearing the sounds of the surf from our open balcony door.
