Hidden Dunes Cottage 218





Pleasant to the eyes and relaxing to the soul, the unique touches found in the shabby-chic yet beachy interior of Hidden Dunes Cottage 218 will have you completely enamored. A new kitchen featuring granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a custom tile backsplash add a sophisticated air to this beach bungalow. Plus, the two bedrooms with their hardwood floors and gorgeous linens look like they were torn from the pages of a magazine. No doubt you’ll begin to feel like you should be in magazines too once you experience the luxury of the Jacuzzi bathtub in the Master Suite!

Added niceties include a screened in wraparound porch with comfortable chaise lounges, a stash of toys for the two pools and the beach, and pro tennis courts and a lighted basketball court right on site. Plus many enjoyable hours can be spent meandering through Hidden Dunes walking trails past gazebos and fountains and then combing the beach for shells. But if the shopping bug bites or the fast greens of a Golf course call, plenty of amazing shopping and dining is about two minutes away at Silver Sands Factory Stores and at least three courses are very close by.

Hidden Dunes offers six tennis courts with a Rubico Clay surface, which is the highest standard for clay tennis courts, and are maintained daily in order to provide the best playing conditions. Proper tennis attire is required to play and we encourage you to call ahead to schedule a match or take advantage of our clinics and private lessons. Please call to inquire about cost per session and equipment rental prices. Our friendly staff invites you to join for a game or two. 


We require a minimum length of stay during the summer and over holidays.
We do not rent to anyone under 25 or to students

Guests receive a welcome kit with small dishwasher detergent, dish soap, sponge, a roll of paper towels, and laundry detergent. There will be an initial trash liner in each receptacle and a set of toilet paper and soaps for each bathroom provided. Guests will need to replenish supplies for longer stays.

4 it was a great location and very clean condo. The only suggestions for improvement are please do not use those horrible white efficiency light bulbs. Also the outdoor furniture is uncomfortable and needs thicker chair pads! We did love the location and quiet community.

Vacation stay

We have been vacationing on the property for over 7 years. Each time we find clean rooms and property overall. The upgrades such as smart tv's and individual Wi-Fi is a step up in a world of technology. We bring the entire family meaning all ages have some level of entertainment and relaxation.

My family and I had the pleasure of staying on this resort in Cottage 218. The owners of this cottage have done an excellent job with the decor, it is simply beautiful! We were less than 5 mins from the beach and all the staff were really friendly. We are looking forward to our next get away here!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in #218 this week! Your lovely decorating really makes this cottage cozy and(since we love to cook) we really appreciate the extra touches in the kitchen. We had everything! We loved reading the story of how you came to own your "little piece of Destin". This is our 11th summer visit to Hidden Dunes as a family.Its a blessing this place has remained so nice due to owners like you!

What a wonderful week we had here in the hidden paradise! We love your cottage. It has everything you need for a perfect vacation! The back porch is so cozy, we drank our coffee and tea there every morning and evening. We are really going to miss that! The cottage is so tastefully decorated, you just feel immediately at home. Thank you for a real home away from home!

This was our first visit to Destin/Hidden Dunes and we love it!! Thank you for providing such a comfortable cottage! Our family fit here perfectly! We needed a week away from our busy lives and we sure got it! We played tennis, went to the pool and spent countless hours at the beach! We love all the local resturants and shopping! We are already talking about our trip back next year!

Lovely Vacation

by Family Vacation

4 of 5

We really enjoyed the cottage and it is close to the pool and a perfect size for vacation. The only negative thing about this cottage is that it is on the first floor and for 2 days we had a (large) family above us that stomped everywhere and had babies crying at 5:00 am. Other than that - the vacation was perfect!

We had a wonderful, family fun and connecting, active, yet relax

by Theresa

5 of 5

We rode bikes, played basketball (sortof-haha), horseshoes, tennis, table games, walked trails, checked out the lake, beach, pool areas, hung out on the wonderful peaceful porch, listened to music, ate at area restaurants and had the best time! The service people were very friendly and helpful. We loved everything...except the sleep quality of the sleeper sofa matress. This place was truely awesome and we had a fabulous time. We enjoyed the owner's sign in book, they seem like really sweet and special people and appreciate their sharing this piece of heaven!

Good Stay

by Kathy W

My Husband and I took our two teenage grandsons to the beach. We stayed 5 nights at Hidden Dunes Cottage 218. Very tastefully decorated. Easy walk to beach or ride the tram. Donna at the check in office was great. She was very helpful. We would stay here again. We have stayed in Newman Daily Properties before, very pleasant experience.Also loved the screened in porch,great for morning coffee.

Wonderful Vacation!

by Sun and Sand

4 of 5

We had a fabulous vacation and enjoyed our stay at this condo. The condo was really clean and the perfect size for a family of 4. We had a really great week. The only reason I didn't mark it with 5 stars is it is a first floor unit so we could hear people walking around upstairs. But It only bothered us one morning when the neighbor got up at 5 am to pack rolling suitcases. Otherwise it was perfect!

Had a great stay

by Tim from Ohio

4 of 5

Our location was ideal. The pool is a short walk away and the tennis courts are also very close by. Perfect! We enjoyed the screened porch with a relaxing wooded view - spent many hours relaxing there. The village is simple 5 minute drive and a great place to spend an evening. Met or exceeded all expectations.

Pleasant time in the Panhandle

by Mike Vickery

3 of 5

We have stayed in this particular unit a few times over the last ten years. It is a great location. The pool, the tennis courts, the grills are literally steps from the door. The walk to the beach is short and pleasant - just long enough to 'de-sand' on the way home! The kitchen and living room of this unit is great. The bedrooms are good, too. The bathrooms are tired, and in need a make over. That said, the unit was clean and certainly served our needs well.
