"This was our third year staying at Hidden Dunes but our first year in this condo. The owner was extremely helpful about keeping in contact before the rental dates and the condo was immaculate. The decorating was pretty and the furniture was comfortable and in great condition. The view was amazing! We are already planning our stay for next year in this condo."Guest: J.Anne Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 3, 2014View listing
"We just got back from our lovely vacation here. We have stayed in Sandestin before and loved it and decided to come back. The condo is exactly as pictured and I was pleasantly surprised that we did not hear one iota of noise coming through the walls from the condos on the left and right. The rooms were great with plenty of blankets and towels. The washer and dryer were essential for our trip, because we are from Missouri and we must pack light. The condo has everything you need. There was even a hand mixer I used to make brownies one night. It has tons of dishes and utensils. Perfect for the cook in me. The resort is centrally located near outlet malls and great restaurants. We ate in Baytowne a couple of times, but mostly cooked in the condo to save money. The Publix down the street has everything you need, however, I found that if you are from the midwest the prices are about 30% more than we were used to. Gas is a bit higher as well. Highlights of our trip: 1# The beaches are awesome. The kids love the white sand and the clear sea. Boogie Boards are a must! Bring chairs and umbrella and set up early if you go over a holiday. (We chose to go about 3pm every day when everyone else was leaving) 2# Baytowne is awesome. Ziplining, Arcade, Ropes Course, Dining. Yummy. We also attended the 4th of July Celebration at Baytowne and had a BALL. It was awesome. We had so much fun!!!! We set up our lawn chairs for the fireworks, then went around and had fun and came back for the best fireworks show I have seen in a long time. Baytowne valet parking is only $6 bucks and worth it! #3 Proximity to the pool. My children loved being able to be close to the pool. The only thing we would do differently would probably be to not go over the holiday week. The roads were so packed that the traffic coming down 98 was bumper to bumper and took us an extra hour and a half just to get to Sandestin. Because of the fact that most people rent Saturday to Saturday, everyone is travelling on the same days. We chose to leave at 7am on checkout day to save us the hassle of traffic and it worked great. Most people from the resort were still sleeping."Guest: Tara H. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 7, 2014View listing
"Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Absolutely perfect. Everything was set on our arrival & I loved getting the email telling us we could check in early. The condo was perfect. If I had any complaint at all it would be the "high" pub table & chairs on the balcony. But truly minor in the big picture.The weather was ideal& the beach was beautiful. Only other complaint which I doubt can be acted on was that several times when we went to the pool there were gentlemen sitting around smoking cigars. I understand that folks need to smoke outdoors, but the smell was so strong that we had to leave."Guest: Christine Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 17, 2014View listing

Sandestin Area Travel Tips
Get ready for some fun under the sun along the beautiful coastal waters of Destin, Fla. This sandy beachfront community features a wealth of outdoor activities and excursions that will make this vacation a standout in the memory bank. Located on the Florida panhandle, visitors will enjoy the shimmering waters and warm breezes that drift up from the Gulf.
The city as we know it today was established by Captain Leonard Destin, who moved to the northwest Florida coast from Connecticut in the mid-1800s. Captain Destin pioneered the fishing industry in the town that bears his name, and that tradition is still a major part of the community’s economy today. The largest and most elaborately equipped fishing fleet docks here in Destin due to its close proximity to the 100 Fathom curve and deep Gulf waters.
Golf has become a popular activity among tourists and locals alike, and visitors have a wide selection of courses to choose from. Whether you’re a PGA professional or an amateur golfer, you’ll be sure to find a course that is both challenging and fun. These are some of the best fairways scattered in and around the city of Destin:
- Raven Golf Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., and features an array of stunning vistas that carve through the marshes and pine groves of Sandestin. The 6,900-yard, par-71 course will present golfers with a challenging and strategy-filled match that is sure to test almost every club in their bags. Over the past few years, this club has played host to PGA events as well as NCAA championships and has been honored by quite a few publications as one of the best courses in Florida.
- Burnt Pine Golf Club is a spectacular 7,000-yard jewel that rests upon the Emerald Coast of Florida. The back nine stretches out along the shoreline of the Choctawhatchee Bay, which provides some absolutely breathtaking natural beauty. The front nine is spread out through the lush pine groves and wetlands that populate the area, but look out - these pretty vistas provide some tricky obstacles as you make your way from tee to tee. The course was designed by architect Rees Jones, and has been hailed as a superior one by Golf Magazine and other publications.
- The Links Golf Club deviates from the classic designs of other courses in the area and presents golfers with rolling hills throughout the fairways, as is typical in links-style courses. Resting along the coastline of the Choctawhatchee Bay with a backdrop provided by the Baytowne Marina, this picturesque landscape envelops players with a sense of calm and tranquility. Unless of course your ball ends up in the pits of one of the many bunkers that surround the manicured greens.
Relaxation and Beaching it Easy
There are numerous public beaches that sprawl along the beautiful Emerald Coast. The white sands and warm Gulf breezes make leisurely living come naturally to even the most high-strung travelers. Sink your toes into the sand and take a load off at one of these excellent beaches:
- Barracuda Beach located at Barracuda and Scenic 98 is open to the public, and presents guests with wide-open expanses of sun-baked coastline. Work on a killer tan or try your hand at some sandcastle construction at this incredible oceanfront locale.
- Calhoun Beach near Restaurant Row is another prime public spot that enables travelers to enjoy the coastal views. Open from dawn to dusk, this beach presents a great view of the crashing waves that surge inward from the Gulf.
- Norriego Point Beach is located on the eastern tip of the peninsula and overlooks Destin Bay. Pack a picnic lunch or a romantic sunset dinner for two on the sands of this natural sanctuary and watch the boats as they slowly drift into the harbor.
Activities in Sandestin
If lounging about in the sand all day gets a little hard to handle, there are quite a few local spots that make for an engaging and fun-filled excursion. This quiet oceanfront community offers visitors an array of great activities spread throughout the town. Take an afternoon to discover some of these excellent hangouts:
- The Destin History and Fishing Museum features a variety of exhibits that document the history of this once quaint fishing village. Visitors will find a variety of antique fishing equipment, including one split bamboo pole and Penn reel that belonged to the late American author Ernest Hemingway.
- Destin’s Main Street Market was established by transplants Tom and Amy Holt as a way to promote local farmers and their produce. Every Saturday morning, guests can find a wide spectrum of fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs and baked goods, making the perfect picnic or just something to snack on during deep excursions.
