Hidden Dunes Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8), Upscale Furnishings

PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR PRIOR TO INQUIRING. IT IS ALWAYS UPDATED/CURRENT. THANK YOU! I WILL PROVIDE PRICE QUOTE BASED ON DATES YOU SUPPLY. $1 per night is NOT the PRICE! 7 NIGHT MINIMUM DURING PEAK SEASON. RATES RANGE FROM $200 TO $545+ NIGHTLY PLUS TAXES, CLEANING, FEES, ETC. We do not rent to under 25 years of age unless parents are present during entire rental.

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 3rd year in a row, ranked a 'Top 50 Tennis Resort in the United States' by the publication 'Tennis Online') with 6 Rubico clay courts (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.

Gulfside 306 has four flat screen TVs (living room TV is a 47” brand new LED 'Smart' TV (added Dec 2013), a 40' brand new LED in the Master Bedroom (added Oct 2013), and the other bedrooms have 32” LCD TVs (added Oct 2011)) and four DVD players (two are Blu Ray). High Definition cable service is provided that includes several premium channels. Complimentary WIFI is provided. There is also a Pack N Play and booster seat in the unit for our guests with small children.

We recently added a chaise lounge chair on the balcony for our guests to enjoy. New mattresses were added in two of our three bedrooms in the fall of 2012. New designer linens were added in the master bedroom in the summer of 2012. A new dishwasher, washer and dryer were added August 2013. All pillows and mattresses have dust mite covers, and the unit is meticulously kept.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Wow! What a beautiful place with a gorgeous view! We have had such a wonderful, relaxing time away from the craziness of everyday life! We enjoyed the beach as well as a GREAT Thanksgiving dinner at Hogsbreath and Black Friday shopping at the outlet mall! Sad we have to go home but as they say, "All good things must come to an end!" Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home away from home.

We are from Texas, and fell in love with the Destin area and its world-class white sand 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!

Carol Daley purchased this condo in 2011

We've stayed in many different Destin area condos over the past six years, and this one had the best combination of location, beachfront acreage, upscale amenities, and fantastic management!

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.

PERFECT VACATION PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in this lovely condo on a beautiful beach. The owner did everything possible to make sure we felt at home. It was everything the listing on VRBO described and more! I'm hoping we can return again to this piece of "heaven on earth."

Owner's Response: I am so happy your family enjoyed your vacation time in our condo. It wasn't long ago that I was a renter, and I remember the stress of choosing a place for our family - and fearing the "backlash" if it wasn't what we expected! LOL! I always try very hard to put myself in my renters' shoes - what would they expect/want/need? I know this particular trip was something you wanted to do with your family for years and years, and I am so glad it did not disappoint! I hope you'll be back to stay with us again!

THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What an amazing vacation. We brought our 4 y.o. and 2 y.o. here for a week vacation and we were not disappointed. This unit is fantastic...plenty of room, all the comforts of home and right on the beach. We enjoyed as many meals as we could on the patio while we enjoyed the sound of the waves. We were true beach bums and never really felt we needed to leave the property...all we needed was right there. (But if you do venture out, you are close to everything...restaurants, shopping, etc.). Hidden Dumes makes a fabulous vacation destination!! We will definitely make plans to come back and would recommend it highly to others. We truly loved it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review our condo. I am so thrilled it was a great vacation spot for your family! We certainly agree that location is critical when choosing a place to rent. Everything is super convenient, for sure, but we rarely feel the need to go out. The balcony is a favorite gathering spot for early morning coffee, or for toasting the sunset! Cooking in our kitchen is easy, and many times we'll grab take out and come eat it on our balcony - the view is unsurpassed. I hope you will come back and stay with us again!

We had a lovely time in this beautiful unit on the beach! No complaints (other than a rainy day!!). We saw dolphins, had a perfect view of the beach and ocean, had a very spacious and comfortable condo on lovely grounds. Convenient shopping and restaurants nearby. Would love to return someday!

Most BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL Place We've Ever Stayed!
  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in this amazing condo for 8 glorious days Thanksgiving week 2013. This place is a must visit for everyone! I cannot say enough great things about what a perfect spot we found in Hidden Dunes 306. The most breathtaking view and sunsets will be all yours from the fabulous patio and the beach is right there. This place cannot be adequately explained in words, you must see it to believe it! I've never felt so relaxed or peaceful in my entire life as I did staying here. The condo is beautifully decorated, immaculate, fully furnished, and anything else you might need or want is conveniently located. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us. We did not want to leave and cannot wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review! When we purchased this condo, we prayed it would be a blessing to our family, and to all who stay in it! I know when I walked in it, I just knew it was perfect for us, and sounds like it was perfect for you, too! We hope you'll come back and stay with us again. I agree, the fall and winter sunsets are especially amazing - and to be able to see them - even from inside the living room through our wall of windows - well, wow! :>)
