This was our 4th year staying at Hidden Dunes. It’s definitely one of our “happy places”! We love Cottage 169! It’s on the top floor, in a quiet spot on the property, and is an easy walk to the beach. The cottage is really spacious with lots of room to spread out. The unit looks just like the pictures- cute beach decor with comfortable furniture and a great screened in porch. We’ll be back again next year!

We love hidden dunes. This condo was great. Only complaint would be the showers needed a good cleaning of the grout. All 3 bathrooms need to be renovated. Other than that it was perfect

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beach cottage. It was so quiet, the screened porch was great for morning coffee, the beach was beautiful, the amenities of the property were also great, though we didn’t get to utilize all of them. My only “complaint” on this review is that it didn’t list that there were 3 full bathrooms. That was our only hesitation in renting this one, but we were pleasantly surprised when we checked in. I would definitely recommend staying here & would gladly rent here again.

My husband and I stayed there with some friends of ours last weekend. The condo was lovely... probably one of the nicest we’ve ever stayed in, except for one thing... the moth balls! When we entered the unit on the first night, the odor was incredibly overwhelming - it was difficult to sleep. The next day, I spoke with someone from Newman-Dailey and almost immediately, someone from housekeeping came out and found a large bag of mothballs in a locked closet in the loft, near the air conditioning unit. No wonder the odor was so strong! Our guests, my husband and I believe there were still some remaining in the condo; however, the odor was much improved. So, thank you to Newman-Dailey for responding so quickly and professionally!! Hidden Dunes has been a favorite of ours since 1997!

We truly enjoyed our Thankgiving at Hidden Dunes! The cottage was clean and in order when we arrived. The decor was so beachy and comfortable. We enjoyed putting together crossword puzzles and sitting on the screened porch in our down time. We would enjoy staying in this cottage again on future visits!

The condo was perfect, clean & beautifully decorated. The resort was very nice & secure. My only request would be that since it was too cool & late in the year to enjoy some of the amenities like the pool & some of the items on the VIP card, then you could instead provide free beach chair service.

Everything about our week was a dream. Cottage 169 appealed to me over the others because of the decor, and it lived up to the pictures and more! The minute we stepped through the door we were ready to move in permanently. Yes, the flooring took some getting used to but after a day we didn't even notice it and I felt like it added to the charm of the beachy decor. I loved the privacy of being nestled in the trees, and enjoyed every morning on the cute balcony with the fountain bubbling away outside. The beach was uncrowded, clean and just a quick walk away. We loved having our own umbrella and beach chairs set up for us daily. The only disappointment was the large pool being closed for the week. Booking, check in and check out was as smooth as butter.

Not only is this property located within a mile of Sandestin Resort, but it is less than a mile from Silver Sands Outlet Mall. The beach was about a 5 minute walk from this unit to the beach access. This particular unit is very well furnished in great condition. The only negatives that I can think of are the carpet (It's sea grass- slightly rough on your feet but you do not notice if you are wearing socks) and the tiny kitchen sinks. The sinks proved a little more difficult to use than most. The unit was very clean and well decorated. I plan to stay here at my next conference. I have been to 4 conferences at Sandestin and this was the best location yet!

Hidden Dunes Cottage 169 is AMAZING!!! Our stay was so relaxing and fun with our three young boys. This cottage is perfectly located close to both pools and the walk to the beach is gorgeous and short. The cottage itself is very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Very cozy, upscale and sun-kissed!!! I can't say enough good things about it so I'll just tell you we will definitely be back to Cottage 169!

Only issue was with the grills. Only one out of three worked due to one had a pad lock on it. The other would not light. We had 17 in our family staying on the property and one grill made it hard to have a evening BBQ, plus other guest wanted to use the same grills.

comfortable but...

Pros: The Hidden Dunes complex is great! In our unit, there were comfortable beds and other furniture, nice shower in master bathroom, a big TV, and good seating on the screen porch including bar stools and a bistro table. The unit was pretty close to the large pool. Cons: We did not like the sisal flooring. Not nice on bare feet. Also, the kitchen sinks were not very convenient for washing dishes or veggies, etc. It was a strange double bar-size sink arrangement, and in order to switch the faucet from one side to the other, you had to turn it off first or it would run water onto the counter top. The faucet was loose when we got there. Other than the sink, the kitchen was nice and updated, with good appliances and cement counter tops. I would stay at Hidden Dunes again, but would request a different unit.

This cottage was so beautiful and comfortable. It is truly a home away from home. The beds were comfortable. The furniture was comfortable. It was clean and homey. The screened in porch was like another room. Adorable. Our family had a wonderful stay. The only thing missing was a beach view but this place was nice, I was okay with it.

We recently stayed in Hidden Dunes cottage 169. The decor was amazing. It was big enough for our entire party of 8. We spent a lot of time on the screened in porch playing, reading, and just talking while we weren't on the beach or out with activities. We would definitely come back and stay here.

Our family loves this place. We love having the beach so close and a gated entrance! 169 has the most adorable decor and the layout and space makes it so everyone can be together or get away for a few minutes if need be. My husband and I have 3 teenagers (15-17) so all of the above are needed features. The entire complex is well kept, and not crazy loud and busy. We can't say enough about this place. We miss the beach and the nightly walks with the clear starry sky. I would definitely recommend this place!

beach heaven

Christine T

4.0

This place was a little piece of heaven. The space was terrific for our family of 5 (3 grown teens and 2 adults). There was space for everyone to get away to for some piece and quiet, and showering. The place was impeccably furnished and designed in beach chic. Everything was perfect, from the adorable dishware to the super cute dustpan! I wish I could get the person to come and design my house! You can enjoy your morning coffee on the beautifully decorated screened in porch. The ocean is a few minute walk through well manicured tropical pathways (or the golf cart guy would come get you). It is a safe gated area and felt comfortable with our 15, 16, and 17 year olds walking together on the beach without us. We all loved going to the shoreline at night to see the crabs and watch the night sky. The only two downfalls was Wi-Fi connection was a bit intermittent and slow. If you have something dependent on that (on-line classes, etc), it may be an issue. The other small problem was there were a few very very tiny bugs in the kitchen area. We kept everything clean and all food was stored in ziplocks or the fridge. Not sure what they were, but when I called Newman Dailey they brought some bug spray to our cottage while we were gone. We sprayed behind the stove and it seemed to help a little. Hoping they solve the issue for the next family staying there. And lastly, not so much a problem but the flooring is made from a woven rope type material. It looks charming, but not very comfy on the feet. You may want to bring slippers to walk around in when you are at home not on a throw rug. Overall, this was a magical place!!!
