What more could you ask?
From the time you turn off Highway 98 into the Hidden Dunes Resort, you feel like you are on a Tropical Isle! The surroundings are so lush and green that you forget the concrete jungle you left behind. The grounds make you want to put on your shorts, kick off your shoes, and settle back in the sunshine.
As you enter your cottage, you realize that you do not have to live on coconuts and bananas to enjoy this tropical setting. You have everything you need for a group of eight to bask in the beauty that is Destin, Florida. The beach, the sun, sand, pools, and six clay tennis courts are waiting for you.
This property is owned by the older members of our family as a wonderful getaway and gathering place. Marsha and Jim, Mike and Lois, Frances, and of course, Anita (the Grand Dame of our family) enjoy gathering as often as we can at our Condo to have good times and laughs galore. Occasionally we include some of the seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, which only adds to the fun. The bottom line is that we love the Condo and all consider it a privilege to be able to enjoy it.
Marsha Morrison purchased this cottage in 2006
Each of us had different ideas about the purchase of this Condo. Some thought it would be an investment to be rented for awhile then sold for a profit, while others saw it as a way to escape the over-taxed lives we were living. It turned out those who thought of it only as an investment had to give way to the others of us who fell in love with it. The Mama and Sisters live within 150 miles of Destin, so they are able to meet there on various weekends throughout the year. Mike and Lois enjoy scheduling an entire week to get out of North Carolina to play on the sandy beach or clay tennis courts. We all appreciate that Marsha found this Condo for us to enjoy as a family for the last several years.
We loved this place so much that we actually hope to get to rent it again next summer. It was just a short walk to the beautiful beach (I would never think of taking the tram), and the condo is laying inbetween pinetrees in a quiet part of the resort. We loved to have lots of space for our family, and the condo was clean and well equipped. Not to mention, the owner seems great - always answering Messages quick and in a friendly way. Security deposit was returned without problems.
I absolutely loved staying at this property! It was clean and big and so close to the beach. We had 6 adults and it was perfect. We will definitely stay here again in the future.
We absolutely loved Hidden Dunes. Our unit was wonderful--clean, well stocked with linens and towels, glassware, dishes and pots and pans! The owners were very nice and offered suggestions for our stay. The lock box for the key was a great way to be sure it didn't get lost in the sand! The Pizza place they recommended was delicious after a long day on the beach. I loved the screened porch for relaxing and watching the very active squirrels play! The beds were comfy for a good nights sleep or an afternoon nap!! Enough room so that anyone needing a little alone time, could find a space for recharging! The dining table was perfect for family dinners as well as some hard fought card games! The walk to the beach was very pretty and not too far. A little more than 1000 steps if my fit bit was accurate. Most days a very kind shuttle driver picked us up shortly after we started our walk. The beach is gorgeous! I loved that it was a non smoking beach! Many families laughing and playing together. However, we were a bit disappointed that the umbrella chair rental group is allowed to require personal canopies and tents to stay behind their vast chair setup. Their chairs covered the entire area of the beach in front of Hidden Dunes! Many were not even occupied. On Sunday and Monday we could barely see the water from where we had to set up. Couldn't they at least lower the umbrellas for the unoccupied chairs until they were needed? The pool was a nice change of pace from the beach. Part of the larger pool was in the shade around 3;30 -4 which was nice for a break from the intense sun! We met many nice families from across the USA at the pool. My car only left the complex once! We enjoyed lunch on the beach at the Back Porch about 7 miles away. Yummy and a beautiful view! My children made the run to nearby grocery stores to pick up essentials as needed so mom could really relax! So many memories were made during our stay. Truly a dream vacation come true!
From the moment we drove onto the grounds, we loved it. Upon entering the condo, we couldn't believe how nice it was, big and roomy and very comfortable. The beach is only a short walk but a very pretty walk, loved the beach, spent many hours walking on the nice white sand. The owners were very easy to get along with and gave my wife and I a very good rate on the condo, We would go back in a heart beat.
Had a fabulous time again this year. Beautiful place to stay! Looking forward to another visit next summer!
There was lots of space for eight of us. It was super clean, the kitchen was well-stocked with utensils & stuff, and the beds were comfortable. We also enjoyed being able to use the supply of beach chairs and toys. We loved the Hidden Dunes resort area! The landscaping was beautiful, the pools were nice, and we enjoyed our short walk to the beach. We definitely want to stay here again!
