About the property

Cottage Style, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

SWIM, SURF, SUN, FUN at a private FIRST FLOOR 'Carolina Cottage' in Hidden Dunes Beach and Tennis Resort. This lushly landscaped 27 acre GATED COMMUNITY is right on the sugary white beach of the Emerald Coast and offers privacy as well as numerous amenities and activities.

Hidden Dunes is just a half mile east of the Silver Sands Factory Stores Outlet Mall and just minutes from both the Destin Commons shopping complex and Baytowne Village. The well known Sandestin golf course is less than a mile from the cottage. Numerous restaurants and recreational opportunities are very close.

The quaint towns of Seaside and Watercolor are just minutes east. The largest of 3 SWIMMING POOLS and the JACUZZIS are only steps from the cottage door and the 6 clay TENNIS COURTS are a short stroll away.

You can RELAX and SOAK by the heated POOL(seasonal) while the kids enjoy the PLAYGROUND and BASKETBALL courts. There are now two HORSESHOE courts for the adults to enjoy. STROLL the scenic fountain lined path on the way to the BEACH. The walk to the beach is short, but should you want a ride, there is a seasonal free tram that runs from the cottages to the boardwalk -- hop off the tram and you are at the beach -- fun for the kids, great for the tired parents. There is a pet boarding kennel close by, off the property -- DOG DAYS KENNELS, for those with pets who travel.

This cottage has all the comforts and amenities of home while providing an exotic Florida RETREAT. Experience comfortable living with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, nine foot ceilings, a washer and dryer, and a LANAI with an outdoor bar and stools. The SPACIOUS master bedroom provides all the privacy with your own UNIQUE DUAL SHOWER while the second bedroom offers the comfort of a private hallway and space with a queen-size bed and full bath.

This retreat sleeps a total of 4 people comfortably. The clean, open kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials you'll need to prepare everything from a light snack to a gourmet meal.

Why Doug Wiles chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

Karen and I love the emerald coast and Hidden Dunes has been the perfect location to enjoy all that the coast has to offer. The resort is private and 'tucked away', yet close to everything including shopping, recreation, and dining. A wonderful setting especially for families. Simply a great place to visit anytime of year -- come join us!

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights in this cottage and had a good time. The cottage was clean and well stocked. It's a short walk to a nice, private beach, or you an drive to available parking. It's a short drive to many restaurants and a huge outlet mall. Grocery stores are near as well as many attractions. We would definitely recommend for a nice quiet getaway, centrally located.

Great cottage, amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful getaway at this condo. Comfortable, homey, very well-appointed, and quiet cottage. The owners are very responsive to questions and they've done a super job of making it easy to stay here. Virtually everything you need is there waiting when you arrive!

Their description of the property is spot on (though the children's playground was really only a slide at the time of our stay), and it's a short walk down to an amazing beach which rivals those we've experienced in the Caribbean. Just beautiful.

Lots of amenities nearby, and a wonderful playground for our daughter was less than a 5 minute drive away at Baytowne Wharf.

We are looking forward to booking a return trip to this cottage as soon as we can!

We LOVED our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this condo in Hidden Dunes! It was just what we needed as a family of 4. There was plenty of space for us and our 2 boys, age 6 and 3. Being 8 months pregnant, it was so nice to have everything easily accessible and within walking distance. The beach was close and the pool was even closer! We had everything we needed, and the boys had so much fun they didn't want to leave. Highly recommend if you are looking for a great place to relax with your family.

Relaxing, Convenient, Quiet and Secure

  • 5 of 5

This 1st floor condo was perfect for us! Two adults and teenage son. He loved not having to share a bathroom with us (as in a hotel) and we loved our huge master suite with two person shower, The grounds are lush and the path through the property includes a water feature with fountains. It is a quick 2min walk from your unit to the pool, and less than 10min to the lake or beach area. There is a heated pool near the larger Villas, but we preferred ours as it was larger and less crowded. Located in Sandestin, you're away from the hustle and bustle of Destin, but close to the Silver Sands Outlet Mall and Village of Baytowne Wharf.

We'll be sure to consider this property when planning to return to the area.

Quick, happy getaway! :)

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely what we were looking for in a vacation. Nice, quite, clean, safe and gorgeous condo complex. My husband and 2 teenage children loved the pool and quick access to the beach. Enjoyed every minute of our stay,including the night it rained. The cottage was so cozy that we didn't mind staying in. Hope to return next year.

Perfect quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very clean, well decorated and fully furnished with everything you need. Peaceful, quiet setting. Just a very short walk through the resort and you are at the spectacular beach. It has a very secure feeling with the security guards present at the gate at all times. Shopping and restaurants just a few minutes away. Doug was extremely nice and helpful as this was our first time booking through VRBO. I would highly recommend this place.

We definitely will be coming back!
