About Scott and Lisa Justus
Hello. We are Scott and Lisa Justus, and we live in Atlanta, GA. We have 3 children and are delighted that you are visiting with us.
Scott and Lisa Justus purchased this cottage in 2006
Why Scott and Lisa Justus chose Hidden Dunes
We love Hidden Dunes and have been coming to the area since college days at Auburn (many years ago). Growing up in Birmingham/Atlanta (for Lisa) and Asheville, N.C. (for Scott), the white sugar sand beaches of this area have always seemed to be calling our names. We never want to leave. We live in Atlanta now and can be at our beach house in an easy 5 1/2 drive. Hidden Dunes was a beach tennis resort Scott and I admired for many years. We met playing ALTA tennis in Atlanta (he beat me in mixed doubles) and thought this was a PERFECT place for our family's beach home. We chose the perfect cottage located in the lush landscaping of this amazing secluded beach paradise (near the beach, pool, basketball and tennis).
What makes this cottage unique
Our cottage is nestled in Hidden Dunes' twenty-seven acres of beautiful landscaping. The Resort is masterfully designed, constructed and landscaped to enhance the natural beauty of the beaches and creates a unique sense of privacy.
There is an open air tram system for quick and easy access to all amenities (seasonal),including, the most beautiful white, sugar sand beaches in North America,six championship clay tennis courts, USPTA certified professional tennis staff with professionally supervised tennis clinics and round robins,24 hour security/courtesy patrols,lighted basketball court,three swimming pools (one heated) with Jacuzzis, walking trails with gazebo, lake and lakeside deck,reflecting pools and flowing fountains all over the place and a playground area for children.
Just next door are championship golf courses and the famous Silver Sands Factory Stores – over 60 stores in walking distance. Down the road (maybe 10-15 minutes) is Destin Commons Mall - open-air lifestyle center offering shopping, dining and entertainment.
