Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family stayed for a week @ what we termed "our home away from home". It was so cozy, but yet decorated in such a contemporary fashion. Updated kitchen, spacious master bedroom, and quaint screened in porch. Right around the corner from the huge pool. Located near outlets, our favorite restaurant Pompano Joe's, and other entertainment venues. Starbuck's across the street. Not located directly on the beach, but fast service with the trolley service & new friends in the drivers we never noticed.

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This house is nicely updated and was very clean for our visit. The house is located very close to the large pool. The team can take you right to the beach access as well. We had a small problem with the washing machine and the owners were quick to call a repair shop to have it checked. Very friendly owners and an overal wonderful stay.

GREAT!!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo! Plenty of room, close to beach and pool. We had 2 adults and 4 kids, it was a perfect size. The condo was very clean and stocked with everything you would need. We will definitely want to stay here again! The owners are great. They answered all my questions before we arrived and gave us several ideas on great places to eat.

Good Choice

  • 4 of 5

We have never rented anything by utilizing VRBO before so we were a little hesitant at first. I called and spoke with Kristie by phone several times throughout the process and exchanged multiple e-mails with her. She was phenomenal to deal with and was VERY accommodating throughout the process. Even gave us a listing of must go places and then told us of a few that are over-rated. This was a huge help to us and each of her places that she recommended was great.

When we arrived, the condo community was great. It was gated and felt very secure. When we arrived at our condo it was nicely decorated and the floor plan was perfect. The kid’s bedroom being upstairs and the other rooms downstairs was great. The living room furniture was very comfortable and the condo felt like you were at home. It was also within close proximity to the huge pool which the kids loved.

The condo is also in very close proximity to anything you may need yet far enough out to be a retreat from the more crowded areas. It is nearby a grocery store and several food places. It is also only about 15 minutes to the bay. I really liked where it was situated.

Once we got settled in, we attempted to utilize the advertised shuttle service to get to the beach and were informed that it was no longer being offered. This was an immediate let down, and something we had counted on. The beach was too far away for our younger kids to be able to walk too with their beach equipment in tow so we opted to drive.

Once we got to the beach it was great. Well maintained and beautiful. It looked just like we had imagined and as luxurious as you would see on a post card. Also the provided beach toys from our rented condo were a huge hit with the kids.

On the last night the AC in the condo experienced some sort of problem and stopped working. The owners were very apologetic and helpful on trying to reach a solution. They were great about making a bad situation better.

I would not hesitate to return to this condo and this condo community again. We have been in contact with Kristie since we returned home and are already trying to figure out the soonest we can return. I would, without a doubt, recommend this place to my friends, family, or anyone else looking to go to the Destin Area. The condo was great and dealing with Kristie was amazing from start to finish!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Just wonderful. Kristy and Eric were a dream to rent from. The condo is beyond clean and very tastefully decorated. I loved running and biking to The Sandestin Resort and coming back to peaceful (and no traffic) Hidden Dunes. Chuck, who drives the golf cart shuttle to the beach is a hoot! Our kids loved the big pool, steps from the condo. They made quick friends. Just perfect! Our crew fit comfortable: my husband and I; our 2 kids (7 & 9); 3 grandparents.

Our stay here was more than we ever imagined!! This place was perfect for our first time visiting Destin! The cottage was super clean and beautiful! The pools were amazing and the property was beautiful too! The shuttle to the beach was great! We never waited more than 3-4 min when we called. The pictures posted are exactly what you get! Thank you for allowing us to have a wonderful experience at Hidden Dunes! I would recommend this resort to everyone. We hope to return next year!!!

Great Destin Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four along with another family of four (4 adults and 4 children ages 2 to 10) stayed here and had a great time at this property. The place is very clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation time. The location to the pool is very close as well as the grill stations. We loved the place as well as the location of Hidden Dunes but the best thing was the pool. It is very large and even when there are several families there you feel you have plenty of room and privacy just based on the size. The beach is a close walk and we also took the shuttle which is very convenient. The owners were a pleasure to speak with and I would highly recommend this place to our family and friends.
