About the property

Beachfront Condo, 3 Bed/3 Bath + Queen Sleeper, (Sleeps 8), Upscale Decor

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.' Please be sure to watch our property video, which was shot in Dec 2015. All photos are current as of Dec 2016.

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 FREE beach chair set up (2 chairs/1 umbrella - in season).

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, a professionally staffed tennis center (for the 5th 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, two elevators, plenty of parking and a private 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 48” LED 'Smart' TV, a 40' LED 'Smart' TV in the Master Bedroom, and the other bedrooms have 32” LED TVs, and four BluRay DVD players. High Definition cable service is provided that includes several premium channels. Complimentary WIFI is provided throughout the resort, and the condo has its own private WIFI as well. There is also a Pack N Play and booster seat in the unit for our guests with small children.

We added a chaise lounge chair on the balcony for our guests to enjoy. We have very comfortable mattresses, and dust mite covers on all mattresses and pillows. We frequently professionally clean all comforters/bedspreads. A new washer and dryer were added August 2013. A new, large stainless refrigerator and a dishwasher were added in June 2016. The unit is meticulously kept with a 24 hour housekeeping guarantee - if you are not happy with housekeeping in the condo, the crew will come re-clean at no charge (we have never had a complaint).

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 Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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! We have a "dream team" of local support that can quickly attend to any need you may have.

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.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Carol's Miramar Beach condo in mid-July and had high expectations since the pictures and reviews were all wonderful. Everything was even better than we had expected. This is a beautiful and very clean condo with spectacular views from the balcony. And being on the 3rd floor, we could sit out there and see family members in the pool and even converse with them when necessary. Carol is super attentive too. The Keurig coffee maker wouldn't work on our 2nd day there, so I texted her about it, and she had one delivered to us that very day. You can't ask for better than that. She also made sure we knew were everything was located in the condo and on the property, as well as giving us info for shopping, restaurants and other things off the property we might need while we were there. And this condo is well located, with many restaurants and shopping areas nearby. We also were happy to find that the weather was nice and traffic and restaurant waits were not nearly as bad as we had expected. It was hot but not horribly so and there was never a time when we were uncomfortable sitting on the balcony, there was always a breeze and it was perfect.

We ate dinner at restaurants every night and only once did we have to wait more than 10 minutes or so. Most nights we got in immediately. And the only time traffic was really bad was one morning when it rained and I suppose everyone went shopping. We were very pleased with everything about our trip and hope to be able to return to this condo again soon!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review! I am so glad you enjoyed your time with us, and am thrilled that your experience overall was even better than expected. :>) I love our 3rd floor location - I think it's the perfect vantage point for both beach and gulf, and super fast to reach the swimming pool, fitness center, beach, etc. The balcony is my favorite place to be, also. I'm so happy to hear you hope to be back with us again soon - we'd love to have you. We love our return guests. :>)

Excellent oceanfront vacation.

What a treat to stay right on the beach and enjoy this beautiful home. Our annual sister trip could not have been better. The owner proved to be caring, helpful plus delivered the quality promised for our vacation choice. We will be back.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad your annual "sister" trip was a success! When we first spoke, I was so thrilled that you selected us for your vacation, and I am so glad that we met your expectations! Family is special! What a wonderful chance for all the sisters to "reconnect" at the beach! Memory making comes when you spend quality time together. I am so happy to hear you'll be back to make even more memories in the future!

Relaxing and Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Carol is an excellent host! She made sure everything was perfect while we were there. Her home is absolutely gorgeous and so very relaxing. Cooking out and eating on the patio was so divine. Walking down the beach at night with a flashlight, hunting crabs, was the absolute highlight of our trip! Because of these things, we will stay here again instead of a hotel.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your awesome review, Meredith! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! I love being on our balcony - morning, noon, and night! Isn't the beach fun? So many people love walking at night, and it's especially exciting with a flashlight and crab hunting! I am so pleased to hear you plan to come back and stay with us again! We LOVE our repeat guests! :>)

Map

Car: recommended

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, Grand Boulevard are within 5 minutes' drive.
