Overview

Hidden Dunes Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

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 $125 TO $545+ NIGHTLY PLUS TAXES, CLEANING, FEES, ETC. PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR PRIOR TO INQUIRING. IT IS ALWAYS UPDATED/CURRENT. THANK YOU! We do not rent to under 25 years of age unless parents are present during entire rental. Absolutely NO pets and NO smoking. We are NOT IN the Sandestin Resort - Sandestin is the next resort over from ours. That is why VRBO categorized us as being in the 'Sandestin Area.'

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 4th year in a row, ranked a 'Top 50 Tennis Resort in the USA' by the publication 'Tennis Online') with 6 Rubico clay courts (fee charged - and 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.

Snowbirds are welcome! NOTE: The separate ice machine mentioned in the video DOES NOT WORK and will not be available to use. The refrigerator/freezer ice machine DOES work and is available to use.

We keep our calendar updated, so please please check it prior to inquiring. : )

About Carol Daley

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

Why Carol Daley chose Hidden Dunes

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

What makes this condo unique

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.

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.

A Wonderful Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything that was promised and more!!! We enjoyed a week of beautiful weather. We usually go to North Myrtle Beach for a week in May. This year friends wanted us to meet in Sandestin. Our son and his family usually spend some of the time with us. Some of our group were reluctant to change beaches. After our glorious week all of our group are Sandestin converts. I asked my five year old granddaughter what was her favorite part of the vacation. Without hesitation she said the beautiful condo where we stayed. There was plenty of room for everyone. Beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. View was magnificent. Location was perfect!! My husband loved having beach chairs and umbrella waiting for him everyday. Yes, we plan to do this again!!! Thank you Carol, for making this so easy and special!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write your review! We are so happy you've been converted to the Sandestin area over Myrtle Beach! So folks aren't confused, our condo is actually in the Hidden Dunes Resort, which is in the Sandestin area, but it's NOT in the Sandestin community. Sandestin community is very close to ours, so it's fast and easy to go over there and eat at Baytowne Wharf, etc. I agree with your hubby - the beach chairs/umbrella set up every day certainly spoils you! And I am so glad you loved our condo furnishings. We work so hard to keep everything clean, nice, updated, and comfortable! I hope you will be back to stay with us again. Thanks for taking good care of our place. XO! :>)

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation! The condo was perfect for our family. The views were amazing; especially the sunsets. The condo was extremely clean and equipped with everything we could possibly need. We never even ran out of towels, which is quite a feat with four teenage boys! Carol was so easy to work with. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Nothing makes us happier than to see the word "Perfection" in a guest review! That is exactly what we strive to provide to all our guests - a perfect vacation experience! I'm so glad our condo was perfect for your family, and that we provided all that you needed during your stay. I love getting to know my guests! I do hope you'll be back to stay with us again - we'd LOVE to have you! :>)

Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful trip to Miramar Beach/Destin. After a long Chicago winter, we could not have had a better spring break for our family (with three teenagers). Carol made the rental process extremely easy and had great communication throughout the entire process. The condo looked to be professionally decorated with a West Indies theme. The beds were the most comfortable I have ever experienced in a vacation condo. Each bedroom has an on-suite bathroom. The master bedroom has a beautiful beach view. The condo was well stocked with quality kitchen equipment and basic needs (garbage bags, dish soap etc). The balcony view was amazing. We watched pods of Dolphins on most mornings and some evenings. It was nice to walk out to the beach each day and have our umbrella and chairs already set up. Our beach was much less crowded than many down the beach from us. There was plenty of space to stretch out and build sand castles. We had everything we needed and more! We were able to simply relax and enjoy time as a family. We will be back again in the future!

Owner's Response: We are always thrilled when our guests have a wonderful vacation! I am so happy that our condo met your needs, and provided a great place for your family to relax and recharge! We work very hard to stock it with everything you might need, and I am so glad we fulfilled that goal! Dolphin watching is one of our favorite things to do, and with our view down the beach it is easy to spot them, especially in the mornings when the ocean is calm. I do hope you'll be back to stay with us again! Thanks for your fantastic review! :>)

Spring Break 2015 - Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the opportunity to stay at this condo in March 2015. Carol was extremely thorough prior to our departure and upon our arrival. The whole process was very easy and comforting as this was our first VRBO experience.

The location of the unit was perfect. Carol was so correct in sharing the details. The condo overlooked the gulf and was steps away from the beach and the unit was clean and full of amenities. We were right in between all the shops and restaurants and had plenty to do when the sun went down or the clouds rolled by. For those of you who are runners, just follow the road east to the Hilton property and take the underpass going north. Beautiful trails are located beyond the golf course.

You can't go wrong here. Definitely look forward to returning some day! Thank you for opening your condo to us.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review! I am so glad the amenities we provided were perfect for your family! Location is key, and I am thrilled you were pleased with how close everything is! To me, that's super important! I appreciate your tips for runners. I had no idea those trails were so convenient and easy. That's awesome! I hope you'll be back to stay with us again. We'd love to have you! :>)

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our time at this beautiful condo. Our time there was very relaxing and comfortable due to the amenities of the condo. Every thing you could think of needing was there, dishes, cookware,drink ware , even beach chairs and toys! It was like being at home at the beach. Hopefully we will be spending time there again!

Lovely!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 glorious weeks in this beautiful condo in January and didn't want to leave! The condo is spacious, beautiful, comfortable and immaculate because that is the way the owner wants it to be. She worked extra hard to accomodate all our needs making sure we would have a wonderful vacation. Before we arrived, the owner made sure we knew about the restaurants and things to do in the area. We felt as though we had our own concierge! The furniture is very substantial and luxurious. Our favorite place was the balcony where we daily enjoyed the beautiful weather, sun and gulf. The entire Hidden Dunes complex is located in an excellent area and is well maintained and has excellent tennis courts, walking paths and many amenities along with a private beach. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and are hoping to return next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your awesome review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! We rented for years, and when we finally bought a place we vowed to treat our guests the way we wish we had been treated, but weren't! We believe vacation time is important time - time to recharge and reconnect. For busy families and friends it is a chance to slow down, laugh, take long walks, relax, and talk. The older we get, the faster the time seems to fly by! We want everyone who stays with us to have a wonderful time, and make happy memories. It sounds like your vacation included all of that! We hope you will be back soon. :>)

Map

We are located about 20 minutes from the town of Seaside, which is a fun day trip. Some people enjoying driving to Pensacola (approx 80 minutes away) to see the Navy's Blue Angels practice. While we are not in Sandestin Resort, it is right next door to us, so dining/entertaining at Baytowne Wharf is close by.
