PLEASE CHECK OUR CALENDAR PRIOR TO INQUIRING. IT IS ALWAYS UPDATED/CURRENT. THANK YOU! We do not rent to under 26 years of age unless parents are present during entire rental. Absolutely NO animals 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.' All photos are current as of Dec 2017.
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 6th 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 historically been 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 (one has Roku access), and four BluRay DVD players. High Definition cable service is provided that includes several premium channels. Complimentary WI-FI is provided throughout the resort, and the condo has its own private WI-FI 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 dryer were added Sept 2017. A new, large stainless refrigerator and a dishwasher were added in June 2016.

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 Miramar Beach
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.

Property was clean and very conveniently located to both the pool and the beach. Kitchen was super well equipped with everything one might need. Owner was very helpful with things we might need and locations for stores. Beautiful view of the beach.
Beautiful condo with great location close to almost everything! Kitchen is super stocked even has food processors! Also has amenities most don't and saves you some extra money. Steps away from the pool and beach and you can even catch some sunsets. Carol is super nice and available if you have questions. Try it you'll love it! Thanks to the Daley family. Mary Bumpass family yay!!!
Hi Mary! Thanks so much for your review! I am so glad you felt our kitchen was well-stocked! We work hard to be sure our cookware is in great shape, and that we provide all needed items for cooking IN! Since our balcony has one of the best views in town, it's great to be able to whip up a simple meal and not have to hassle with traffic, getting showered and out, and waiting on a table at an area restaurant. Families on a budget can really keep their food costs in check, while still having first-class accommodations. We tell folks even spaghetti tastes GREAT on our gorgeous balcony! We were so glad you picked us for your vacation, and hope you'll be back to stay again!
Hidden Dunes Top Rated!
We just returned from a fabulous girl’s vacation at Carol’s condo. Beautiful view of the ocean from the patio, living room, and master bedroom. You really wouldn’t have to leave the home! Carol provided all the information we needed before we departed for our trip. Making us confident that when we arrived the home would be open, clean, and we would have everything we needed at the condo and surrounding area. We were not disappointed! We did have to call Carol to help us figure out the Smart TV, but after immediately conferencing us in with her husband, we were up and running. A set of instructions provided to renters would easily solve. When the coffee pot decided to shut down, Carol had a new Keurig delivered to our door within 30 minutes! Their home is beautifully decorated, immaculate, and very comfortable. Hidden Dunes is a safe gated community, the restaurants are fabulous with plenty of shopping nearby. Upon our return, we were tempted to immediately reserve for next year. We decided best to wait a month until we paid our bills! Thanks Carol for all of your hospitality and sharing your home!
Lori, Susan, and Betty
Thanks for taking the time to write a review! I am so glad that you loved our condo and its location! We do have a great local support team (aka "the dream team") that allows us to respond quickly if anything is in need of repair/replacement. A 30 minute response time IS pretty darned fast - LOL. :>) We'd love to have your group back again soon - why wait until next year - book us for this fall! LOL Seriously, thanks for taking great care of our place.
Beach wedding with fabulous accomodations.
What a beautiful condo and location!! From the moment we booked the condo right down to the end, Carol was helpful and wonderful to work with. The beach will forever hold a piece of my heart as my husband and I were married on that beautiful white sand. And the view!!!! There is nothing like it and the patio was our favorite spot. We will definitely come back, hopefully sooner than later. This condo is perfect and I highly recommend it.
Hi Shannon! I am so happy that your beach wedding and accommodations were perfect! While we ALWAYS strive for perfection, it's rarely more important than when it is for a special occasion like a wedding! Congratulations again, and we do hope you'll be back to stay with us again! :>)
Location, location, location!
Perfect location on the most beautiful beach! Carol is thorough & available for any questions. The property is very clean & has everything you need for a quiet vacation in the panhandle.
Hi Mary! Thanks for your kind review! I am glad you noted how quiet our resort is! I believe it is because we are not surrounded by a bunch of high rise buildings that make the beach area cramped/overburdened. Especially in the "off season," I LOVE to walk the beach and enjoy the peaceful tranquility found there. The sound of the waves is so soothing! I hope you will be back to stay with us again. :>)
Exceeded Our Expectatons
We enjoyed our stay, and would choose this property as a long term residence, if possible. Carol is wonderful, and provides an unparalleled level of customer service. The view of the gulf, the beautiful furnishings, and proximity to shopping and restaurants make this property a great choice. Emeril's new Costal Italian restaurant is just down the street.
What a great place to enjoy some time at the beach.
Jim and Pam
Hi Jim! Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us! It's so much fun for me to get to know our guests during the booking process and beyond. I just LOVED hearing about your dining experiences at some of our area's new restaurants, and the sunset pictures you shared (taken from our balcony) were just breathtaking! I tell people all the time, we really do have the BEST guests - and you and Pam are some of my favorites! I hope you'll be back to stay again next year! :>)
We are located about 25 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.
Additional information about rental rates
There is a standalone ice machine in the unit that does not work, nor has it ever worked, since condo purchase in 2011. The ice machine in the refrigerator/freezer works fine. :>)
