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 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 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 DVD players (three are Blu Ray). 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.

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.

Beautiful Beach Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation. A month seemed way to short. Fantastic view, beautiful sunny weather, great shopping, good eats and great location. We love the Destin area and this beach front condo is close to everything. It is very well equipped and maintained. If any issues or concerns arise the owner is right on it. We had a coffee maker die and she had it replaced the same day. We stayed here from Jan 28th through Feb 25, 2017 and loved it. Highly recommend.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this unit with our daughter and family. The unit was clean and offered a perfect gulf view. The owner was very easy to work with to ensure a pleasant experience. Heated pool close by and quick access to the beach. We will strongly consider returning.

The condo is in a great location and has a spectacular view! It was so easy to get to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very considerate, flexible and easy to work with. She was so kind to us during our stay, made sure everything was just right and gave recommendations of restaurants and such in Destin. The condo is beautiful and relaxing. We hope to stay there again in the future!

Beautiful Condo on Beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I and our 2 adult children stayed in this condo over Thanksgiving week. The condo is really spacious and very clean. It has large bedrooms and the kitchen is large compared to others we have stayed in. The condo had everything you would need in the kitchen. The view from the large balcony overlooks the beach and since it is a corner unit - perfect for sunsets. Carol (the owner) was extremely attentive and checked on us frequently to see if we needed anything. She is a very engaged owner who knows how important it is to respond quickly to questions or problems. The only negative for us was the difficulty making a left out of the complex sine there is no light. I would definitely recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words about our condo. I will pass your kudos along to our housekeeping staff. They work awfully hard to clean to the very high bar I set. I'm so sorry you felt the need to rate our condo with 4 stars due to traffic and difficulty turning left, something I can't do anything about. There are few resorts in our area with a stoplight outside them, so turning left is a common problem that's not unique to our property. However, I've learned to be patient and wait for a traffic break and/or use the middle turn lane to make things easier at peak traffic times. :>)

Incredible time with a wonderful beach condo

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 couples who spent a week @ Hidden Dunes enjoying the beach, the tennis and the incredible view, especially, from Carol's unit 306. The three couples who occupied Carol's unit couldn't say enough good things about her unit. She pays attention to each and every detail and makes herself available for any question. We had beach chairs awaiting each morning on the beach all set up.

Carol has applied her very own personal care, thought, and touch to all aspects of her unit. Our group had so much fun, there is talk of returning in the spring. This will be one of our units for certain.

I can promise by the time you have booked your stay, been informed of each and every detail by Carol, and then completed your wonderful vacation, you may wonder whether you have just made a new best friend. For example, when I was first trying to book this condo, I was physically in a remote area of the country and the internet was down more than it was on. I contacted Carol by phone, and we basically handled the entire process via phone. She responds to every question almost always immediately. For example, the day before we were to actually arrive, one of our couples occupying this unit was having their very first wedding anniversary, and they wanted to arrive early to celebrate. I called Carol to see if the arrival date could be altered to accommodate that one couple. This was done just a few days before arrival and Carol made it all happen in the "blink of an eye".

As for the condo, in my view, it is the absolute best view on the beach. Her condo is well decorated, the beds were very comfortable and the exquisite sheets added to that comfort. The kitchen was well stocked with every item needed for a great dinner. As a matter of fact all 14 people involved with this trip had dinner one night in Carol's unit and we grilled brats with the wonderful grills located on the ground floor.There was plenty of room and adequate seating for everyone, and no one had to bring utensils from any other condo.

I should also say a word about the tennis @ Hidden Dunes if you happen to be a tennis player, which was a major reason we were there, even though 12 of us resided at the beach. There are 6 wonderful courts, the tennis can be as competitive as you may wish it to be. The staff will actually arrange matches. Rene, George, and Quie are wonderful and the clinics are as well.

The bottom line is we will return!

Thank you Carol!
