Hidden Dunes Cottage 198

Rated Excellent on FlipKey

4.5 average rating
based on 24 reviews

A winding walkway shaded by southern oaks leads to Hidden Dunes Resort cottage 198– a delightful getaway fashioned in cool sand colors. All new furniture in earthy beach tones, and newly painted walls,  give the unit a quaint  beach cottage effect.. Good times are sure to be had while relaxing in the chef-ready kitchen with all new stainless appliances, screened-in patio and large living room all viewing an oblong decorative pond with a fountain and the large  pool directly behind the unit. Moreover, the master suite which features a newly remodeled Master Bath with walk in shower and a large floor plan also views the bubbling fountain and restful natural surroundings.  

Apart from the surprisingly adorable décor and soothing scenery that encircles vacation cottage 198, the location is a crowd favorite. Simply residing in Hidden Dunes Resort means that the beach tram leading to the longest stretch of deeded beach in Destin, FL, lighted rubico tennis courts and clubhouse, horseshoe and basketball courts, two pool decks and plenty of walking trails are all within Hidden Dunes gates. Plus, cottage 198 is only a few minutes’ walk to the very popular Silver Sands Outlets with hundreds of designers, great restaurants on site and a grocery and beach store across the street.

During Spring Break this condo requires a 7-night, Saturday to Saturday stay. Over the 4th of July holiday we require a weekly stay.

unit 198

  5 of 5 stars

The unit was very nice. Need to fix the screen door on the porch. The bottom hinge was broken & didn't close. The patio chairs was not comfortable to sit in at all. Would more than likely rent the unit again.

This was our first family outing since my husband passed away in December. We needed this vacation. We had the best time!! The cottage was perfect for us, we loved it. It was clean when we arrived. It was a quiet location, close enough to the beach to walk, swimming pool practically at the backdoor (which the kids loved), basketball court across the street, and close to shops, restaurants, and activities. We hope to be back next year!!!

Love Hidden Dunes Cottage 198, second year staying here! Love the new furniture, decor and new appliances! We love the tile floors in the bedrooms and the new rugs!


Excellent Choice

  5 of 5 stars

Very quiet, clean and spacious. 24/7 security guards on site and gated community. Felt very safe. We had everything we needed. Easy access to the beach, pool and hot tub! I recommend bringing your own sheets, they were a little scratchy however I may be a little picky as my friend pointed out. Great place, we will go back!

My family of five stayed at this cottage during our Christmas Break. This cottage was everything we hoped for! This cottage was beautifully tiled throughout, so the previous posts about the carpeting can be ignored. This cottage was clean and well maintained! We had no problems or difficulties at all! It was our very first stay at Hidden Dunes and our experience was excellent! I would highly recommend staying at Hidden Dunes and Cottage 198! You will not be disappointed! We definitely will be staying at Cottage 198 again in our future!


Stay at Hidden Dunes

  4 of 5 stars

First, we love Hidden Dunes and have stayed there for the past 25 years (not every year). This recent visit, we rented a cottage rather than a gulf side unit due to a physical problem with the gulf side units. I was looking forward to using the large pool right outside our cottage, but was shut down the whole week for maintenance , this the first week in October, most beautiful week of the year. What a disappointment. Regarding the gulf side units, it would be great if N-Dailey could get some of the rental unit owners to make their toilet seat area more handicapped usable such as installing grab bars. Thanks for listening, Bob Keys


We'll be back for sure

198 was a very nice cottage. It was quiet, clean and convenient.The view from family room was beautiful. The carpeting should be replaced but furnishings, linens, and kitchen utensils were fine. Would recommend this cottage.


Secluded oasis

  5 of 5 stars

198 was a convenient, quiet place to stay. Carpeting needs to be replaced in bedrooms, very stained. Bathroom sink very slow to drain and microwave needs to be replaced. Furnishings nice, kitchen tools adequate. Loved the location and view out window. Water features and planting a very nice and well maintained. That said I encountered a problem with late arrival. Lock box contained information but DID NOT include door code. Called given # and was told they would get back to me as soon as possible. Person had to call Donna( rental agent) Not what I wanted to hear after a 13 hour drive. She did respond within short time & was able to provide the code. Next am went to office & talked to her & picked up my cleaning package . Also mentioned to her that it was dark & cottage is located in a very dark corner and no light was turned on. Unfortunately, there is a short step onto porch to reach cottage. The face of step is painted a dark color which looks good in daylight but very easy to miss and stumble onto porch. Donna's reply to code and darkness was that I made a late reservation--not so check records. Not responsible if renters come in after dark. I would have liked her to say " I'm sorry for the inconvenience you encountered last night. "That never happened. Not the way to to treat customers especially after a long drive . The dark entrance is a hazard as well. Maybe she was having a bad day but it was at my expense. We did extend our stay by 1 night when told it was available. Would have been a nice gesture to give it to us rent free or at a reduced rate. Donna will not be my choice for finding a rental again.

need to add a few things such as a full sized ironing board, some dessert dishes, card table and chairs, the carpet needed cleaning.

Manager's Response
Thank you so much for your feedback. The condo sized ironing board and no card table and chairs are primarily due to a lack of space. However, we are always happy to pass along these suggestions to owners. Carpets are cleaned on an as-needed basis. Any guest can request carpet cleaning during their stay if they feel the carpets are not up to our usual standards. Again, thanks for your feedback and suggestions and we look forward to hosting you again in the future!


Our vacation was great!!

  5 of 5 stars

This condo was excellent for us. We had 5 adults and 2 children. We stayed here for a full week. Everyone had plenty of room and we didnt feel like we were invading each others privacy. The kids loved how close the pool and beach were to the condo. We all loved the amenities, range of restaurants, shopping centers and grocery store access. You will love this place! It was our first trip to Destin and I would not hesitate to book this condo again in the future!!!


It was the perfect resort location for our family vacation.

  4 of 5 stars

We chose this resort because of the amenities and access to the beach. The tennis was great, the grounds and pools were beautiful, and the location of the cottage was perfect. It was nicely updated and comfortable. We would definitely consider staying here again on our next visit to Destin.


Can't wait to come back!

  5 of 5 stars

We can't believe what a wonderful time we had at this cottage. It was cute and clean. The complex was something I never experienced. It was like being at our own private resort. We can't wait to come back!


Lovely Stay!

Vacation in Paradise

  5 of 5 stars

This was our first family vacation to Hidden Dunes, and I am certain that this will not be our last! We had a wonderful time throughout the entire vacation. The instant we walked into Cottage #198, we felt at home. Everything was on hand for us, from the pots and pans, to extra beach toys for the kids. This place was awesome! The management staff were very courteous and made sure that we were very well settled in. An added convenience was having the beach, pool, playground, and basketball courts within walking distance! My only regret was having to leave this place! We will definitely make a return trip to Hidden Dunes, this was a vacation in paradise!

Better than I expected, but not great.

  3 of 5 stars

The condo was nice; however the wi-fi did not work and I needed to work while I was there. The chain lock on the door was broken and no one tried to repair it during our stay though I called several times. The beds were very comfy which was a surprise! Remotes missing for TVs reported as well. Blankets were awesome - so soft and cozy!!! Kitchen well stocked with pans, etc. Overall the condo was very nice and well priced. Just feel more comfortable with an inside way to bolt the door. Service was good when we checked in; however after that went down hill.

I have apologized to the guest and have made a promise to her that Newman Dailey Resort Properties, Inc. strives for 100% satisfaction and she will be well taken care of on her next stay at Hidden Dunes Resort!


June 2012 Stay

  4 of 5 stars

My family has been to Hidden Dunes several times and we always enjoy the stay. The entire site including buildings, landscaping, water fountains, walking paths, other guests and quiet, family friendly atmosphere are always relaxing. My only criticism, especially from this stay, is that the large pool area was not very pleasant. Nearly every day this year there was some some combination of large groups of loud people, people eating and drinking next to the pool and people playing loud music. This experience was sufficiently unpleasant for me to look for alternatives to staying at Hidden Dunes for next year's vacation which I don't really want to do. Until this year I was completely satisfied going every year to Hidden Dunes as it has been a familiar and pleasant place that I felt like I could count on to relax for the short vacation time I have available. I also would like for the gate attendant to be able to give us our door key code when we arrive. We drive down from Indiana and after this length of time in the car we are very anxious to get into the cottage and rest. This is a minor inconvience, secondary to the atmosphere at the pool but I wanted to explain the poor rating on "ease of check-in."
