Overview

Miramar Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8), Upscale Furnishings

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.

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 beach chair!

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 (brand new) 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 recently 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 dishwasher, washer and dryer were added August 2013. 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!

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.

Loved Hidden Dunes Gulfside 306!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at gulfside 306. The condo was as shown and described. Everything was clean and most things up to date. Kitchen was very well stocked. Bedrooms well furnished and very comfortable beds. Beach access was great and elevators fast and readily available. The view from the balcony is wonderful.

Carol was so good to work with and kept in contact with us all week. It was nice knowing we could get in touch with her if needed. She was very accommodating. We would definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! I am so glad you had a great vacation! We are happy to replace things as needed as they are made known to us by our guests. Had you told me during your stay, I could have had the skillet replaced that did not sit as flat as you preferred while you were there. I loved seeing all your photos from your time at the beach, and I am so thrilled you'd come back to stay with us again. We're already booking into 2017 so don't delay. We love our repeat guests! :>)

Beautiful condo - gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that I spend weeks reading reviews and researching areas before I book a condo. This condo looked perfect online and upon arrival it was proven to be just that. From the booking process, the owner Carol was helpful and answered all my questions promptly. She not only emailed but called me to answer my questions. If you look at her calendar - it speaks for itself. She books up very quickly and that is based on the immaculate condo, nice resort amenities and most importantly beach front access. The balcony lends to the most perfect view of the ocean. My family of four had a wonderful time this week and plan to book again. Thank you Carol for sharing your condo with us. It was nothing short of amazing!

Owner's Response: Your review made me so happy! It was such a pleasure getting to know you through the booking process, and I am so pleased you had a great vacation. Our balcony view truly is amazing - I find myself going for takeout and just eating it at the condo! Tough to find a better view than ours! I tell folks that even spaghetti tastes good on our balcony! :>) I am so pleased that you plan to come and stay with us again! We love our repeat guests. Thanks for taking the time to write up your thoughts. Very much appreciated!

We enjoyed our stay.

Nice condo. Easy walk to the beach. Close to Baytown Whorf which has good food and fun things for the kids. Plenty of space and pretty view. We enjoyed our stay.

Awesome stay in a beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful and was equipped with any and everything you could ever need! It was clean and in excellent condition. Carol was awesome, and could not have provided better customer service. I would definitely recommend the property (esp. this condo) to my family and friends. I enjoyed the location, as it was close to the outlet malls, Baytown Wharf, and many restaurants. The view from the condo was breathtaking!

The parking was a huge dislike- we had to park many times out on the street due to no parking spaces, and the parking spaces in the garage were really "tight."

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! I am so happy you had a wonderful vacation! I agree, our location and view are both fantastic! I'm sorry you experienced parking challenges. You were there the absolute peak week in season (4th of July), so that was probably a big contributing factor? Yours is the first negative comment I've received on parking, so hopefully it will be better the next time you come to visit? We'd love to have you back to stay with us again! :>)

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! I'm so glad you had a great time staying in our condo! I agree, our place is GREAT for families! Everything is so close - the beach, the pool, the gas grills, the parking garage, and the area restaurants and shops! And our floor-to-ceiling windows give our place the feeling of being bigger than it actually is! I love how you can really enjoy the beach without even having to step foot outside. I hope you'll be back to stay with us again - we'd LOVE to have you! :>)

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.
