This ground floor “Carolina” style cottage is located in the PRIVATE community of Hidden Dunes. At Hidden Dunes Beach & Tennis Resort, you will not find the commercial atmosphere of other resorts. What you will find is a 27 acre natural setting on a private beach. As if the emerald waters and sugar sand beaches are not enough, there is much more that Hidden Dunes has to offer including 6 rubico tennis courts with professionally staffed tennis center, basketball court, swimming pools, hot tub, playground, community grilling area, nature trails, fishing, shuffleboard courts, horseshoe courts. There is also chair service and kayak and paddle board rentals at the beach. You can access all of the facilities by taking the scenic paths throughout the community or by catching the shuttle during the busy season. This is an awesome and safe resort for children.
Our cozy cottage is tastefully decorated and offers all the comforts of home. There is an open floor plan in the living/kitchen and dining area which opens onto the screened in back porch where you can relax or dine outdoors while listening to the fountains. It sleeps six including the pull out couch, has a fully stocked kitchen including a keurig coffee maker, has Tvs & DVDs in living room and bedrooms and free wireless internet. This is not your typical rental either, there are board games, an XBOX 2 & 3 and 2 beach cruiser bikes!
Hidden Dunes is located in Miramar Beach near Silver Sands Outlet Mall. You are out of the congestion while at the resort but close to all that Sandestin, Destin and the Beaches of 30A have to offer including charter fishing, golf courses, restaurants and shopping.
Our home away from home is perfect for your family getaway or romantic vacation any time of year. We offer nightly, weekly or monthly rentals!

We stayed her the week before Easter and were very pleased with the accomodations. The unit is nicely decorated and well-stocked. Kelly was very helpful and prompt in all our communications. My only complaint would be that the larger of the two pools was closed for resurfacing - you would think this type of maintenance work would have been done over the winter rather than during prime spring break/Easter weeks. Obviously not the owner's fault but poor planning on the part of management. That's the only reason I didn't rate the unit Excellent.
We would rate this condo average. None of the pictures showed the kitchen - which could use some updating. We also were not a fan of the tile floors in the main living area - better than dirty carpeting, but not as nice as the pergo floors in the condos we stayed in at Hilton Head. We found the master bedroom to be very dark - even when we tried to turn up the lights for reading, etc. it still just seemed very dark. We also thought the carpeting in the bedrooms was due for replacement or a good shampooing. My kids wanted some light in their room so they lifted the blind and the window was filthy- looked like mold around the frame-called the cleaning lady who arrived the next day and cleaned it. Some things we liked about the condo where the location and tram drivers to the beach were real characters (especially Joe!) There is also a swing chair on the screened in porch which my kids like to sit in and read. A thing we didn't like though about Hidden Dunes is you have to pay to play tennis in the evening hours after the club closes. In Hilton Head you could play in the evenings for free. We didn't know this our first night and were kind of rudely kicked off of one of the courts by security.
All in all a great vacation but would not stay here again. Also you have to put down a security deposit which took several e-mails and finally a phone call to get the voided check back.
Excellent location, comfortable and spacious inside. Only stayed 3 days during Thanksgiving weekend so didn't spend much time at unit. Did get to the heated pool. Grounds are beautiful. Will definitely stay again.
