Hidden Dunes Cottage #235 - New Ownership and Updates
The Hidden Dunes Beach and Tennis Resort is on Miramar Beach, on the Gulf, the most beautiful beach in the country. Its gated community, with naturally kept grounds, two large swimming pools, hot tubs, nature walks, professional tennis courts and the bright white clean sandy beach with colorful umbrellas, provides the best ambience for children and adults (hiddendunes.com). Hidden Dunes consistently ranks among the top 50 tennis resorts in the US.
We are new owners and have outfitted Beach Cottage #235 with all NEW furniture, hotel-quality linens, new windows, and the entire unit has been painted. Both bedrooms have king beds with high quality mattresses. There is also a queen sleeper with an extra plush upgraded mattress in the living room. Cottage outfitted with a new 50-inch smart TV (with ROKU access) and very quiet Bosch washer and dryer. We have also installed a personal router with high speed internet for the exclusive use of our guests. The cottage is a second and third floor unit with a spiral staircase to the loft. We wash all duvet covers between stays and prioritize guests who will take nice care of our property.
The cottage has a master bedroom and a loft bedroom and 2 full baths. It is fully equipped to make your stay like home. This is a pet-free property due to our family having severe allergies.
Our cottage is located steps from the big pool and hot tub. The beach is a short walk or a 1-minute drive. Hidden Dunes provides a free seasonal tram service to bring you and your items to the beach. There is also beach parking. The rental includes a beach umbrella and 2 beach chairs reserved at the beach (Mar-Nov).
In the evenings, you can enjoy the screen room with the pleasant Destin breeze and the sound of the waterfall below. New patio furniture just added. Pool and hot tub are located steps from the cottage. Super convenient!
The cottage is located within a five minute drive from several clusters of entertainment and shopping, and many great restaurants. These include Sandestin, Bay Warf, the Commons Mall, the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Grand Boulevard and the Scenic Gulf Drive boardwalks. It is a twenty minute drive to the Port of Destin, a pretty fishing village with exciting night life. Additional points of interest in the area include Santa Rosa Beach, Seaside, and several state parks.

About Rhonda Cohen
We visited Destin Florida for the first time in February 2017. We stayed in Cottage #235 and had such a wonderful time that we decided to become property owners. We look forward to creating many fond memories with our daughter, age 2.

What makes this Condo unique
This resort is very family friendly and beautifully maintained. Our second floor cottage is super quiet. There is no one above us. The beach is walking distance - no highway to cross!. Beach service, an umbrella and two beach chairs, is included with the rental (seasonal). You can have the same beach chairs and umbrella for the day, making it easy to go back and forth to the cottage for lunch. There is also a heated pool (seasonal).

Nice quiet stay at Hidden Dunes
The owner of this property could not have been nicer; she provided timely communications and checked on us during our stay. The unit was clean and quiet, plus it was close to both a pool and tennis courts. We are looking forward to our next stay at Hidden Dunes!
Property well maintained and cozy
My family enjoyed our stay in this comfy loft condo. All accommodations were clean and comfortable. Beach access near by and close to shopping. I would recommend this rental to my family and friends.
Thank you for nice review of our property! We enjoyed hosting you and your family.
Happy New Year! All the best, Rhonda

May you have a happy new year. All the best, Rhonda
We loved staying at this condo!. Beautiful furniture, comfy beds, and awesome beach resort! The condo is a short walk to a beautiful beach and just steps to a large pool and hot tub. The Hidden Dunes Beach and Tennis Resort is very relaxing and well maintained. The condo was very clean. You can tell the owners care about their guests. Rhonda was super to work with. We would definitely rent this condo again!
Thanks for your great review! We enjoyed hosting you and look forward to your return visit. All the best, Rhonda
Nice place a little back from the beach
We stayed for 1 week 10/7 thru 10/14. Pictures are accurate of the property and it was a good size for our family of three. The pool was nearby if we wanted to jump in quick or for our teenage son to go enjoy.
Owner appears to have updated things like furniture, pillows, TV's. Cabinets are older but that was clearly understood in the pictures. It was quiet and peaceful even given the number of units on the property.
Need to add some barbecue utensils for the grills. Easy enough remedy.
We went with 4 Stars as there were two items that had an impact for us.
The Wifi is provided by the HOA and was not reliable. We are both back in school and had papers do. We also found items like Pandora would pause.
Second issue was the distance to the beach. It's a steady 10 minute walk to the beach and potentially longer with a cooler. It approx 1/2 mile.
Overall a great week and a nice property.
First, thank you for your feedback. Adding some barbecue utensils is a fabulous idea! We have added these items. Thank you for the suggestion!
One of the pieces of information that we provide guests is what to do if there are any internet or WIFI issues. If we had known you were experiencing internet connectivity issues during your vacation we would have worked to resolve them. During your stay, we experienced the effects of Hurricane Maria such that it seems likely that the “access points” for our cottage needed to be reset.
Noteworthy is that as a result of your feedback, we have done some additional research to learn more about what we might do to improve guests’ experience with internet connectivity at Hidden Dunes. Network Communications, the HOA's internet provider, is presently inspecting our access points and we will be installing a Cox Cable personal router with upgraded internet speed for our cottage.
Finally, there are a variety of options for accessing the beach area including walking along beautifully landscaped paths, utilizing the free seasonal tram service operated by Hidden Dunes, and beach parking. We will provide more specific information about these options in the welcome package for future guests. On a personal note, we have utilized all of these options with our toddler.
Thank you again for selecting our cottage. We are glad you had a great vacation! All the best, Rhonda
We stay at Hidden Dunes every year, and this was our favorite Condo to date! 2 min walk to the Big pool, so beautiful! Will Definitely rent from Rhonda again!
Thank you for such a wonderful review! We really do care about our guests' experience. We are very much enjoying being new owners at Hidden Dunes Beach and Tennis Resort and look forward to your return visit. All the best! Rhonda
