About the property

Hidden Dunes Cottage 171 Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

Your cares will take flight while your spirits soar in Hidden Dunes Cottage 171- one of the tennis resorts most finely upgraded cottages. As the sound of the bubbling fountain outside the long stretch of the screened-in porch drifts on the breeze, you’ll be truly impressed with the care in ownership of this South Walton vacation rental.

A collection of pastel paintings by a famous artist adorn the pale grey walls of the first floor. Their subject focuses on tropical birds and the lightness they possess is carried throughout the decor and fine furnishings of Cottage 171. All your chicks are certain to delight in their temporary nest with upgrades like travertine tile floors in the main gathering areas and a chic design where pale pastels and sheer curtains add to the airy atmosphere. Additionally, the kitchen is decked with gorgeous granite countertops, cabineted Frigidaire appliances and a stone tile backsplash which when combined with the soothing ambiance is a lovely place to spread your wings!

Apart from this fantastic interior, Hidden Dunes amenities are what keep generations coming back year after year- dedicated parking, in-unit washer/dryer combo, two pool decks complete with palm trees and lounge chairs, professional clay tennis courts, basketball and shuffleboard courts, shaded walking trails and private access to the beaches of the Gulf. Additionally, many guests continually praise its location which is very near to Silver Sands Factory Stores and several golf courses.

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.

far exceeded our expectations!

This was our very first trip to Destin. I cannot say enough good things about the whole Hidden Dunes experience. Our family had such a wonderful time and we will definitely be coming back here and definitely staying at Hidden Dunes resort. The helpful staff on the beach were so incredibly kind and helpful every day. The staff at the gate were also so very helpful. Again, the resort exceeded our expectations beyond belief. We simply cannot wait to come back again.

This was the perfect quiet spot for our family. It was a short walk to the private beach. Easy for our 3 year old to walk. Our kids loved the loft, though the handrail for the spiral stairs scared us at first with our three year old. Our girls loved the large pool and walking through the shade area with the water fountain. We will definitely keep this on our list for next year.

The property was very nice and had everything we needed. It was a short walk to the beach and heated pool. The neighborhood was quiet, secure, and just a short drive to everywhere we went. We will definetly book here again!

great stay



The refrigerator had a problem with ice forming on the inside of the freezer door. We figured out that if we scraped the ice off once a week, it wouldn't beep at us. That solved that problem. But it was an annoyance until we figured that out. And the washing machine door had a problem opening. It was rather hard to open. We managed with it and worked around the problem. And it did an excellent job of cleaning the clothes. It was just that the door was a little obstinate.

Our stay was great and we absolutely loved cottage 171. It was great. The only thing is we thought it had a sofa sleeper. We needed that. Other than that everything in it was so up to date and beautiful! Thank you for everything Ms. Donna
