About the property

Hidden Dunes Cottage 173 Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

One of the most recently refurbished cottages in Hidden Dunes, 173 is so well done that it would even put a smile on Joanna Gaines face of Fixer Upper! An immediate calm floods over you upon entering- the newest flooring trend of “wooden” plank tiles contrasted by soft shades of grey and cream…the sound of the bubbling water feature woven among the magnolias. Yep, this is going to be your chance to really relax.

The two floors of 173 enjoy a cohesive, HGTV worthy design scheme that is rustically modern. High-end extras like granite countertops throughout, stainless appliances in the fully-stocked kitchen and large walk-in showers decked in custom tile work in each bathroom add a luxurious touch to the farmhouse décor. Apart from a beautiful design, Cottage 173 provides ample seating/gathering areas so nobody will feel “squeezed-in”. The furnished screened-in back porch overlooks the water fountain as does the living and dining room plus each bedroom is well-appointed and spacious.

Cottage 173 also benefits from being part of Hidden Dunes beach and tennis resort. The amenity list is long, but it includes a pro tennis center, two pool decks, a long stretch of deeded beach access, basketball and corn hole courts, a dog park, a playground and lots of shaded walking trails through Hidden Dunes forest. Moreover, a simple right or left turn out of Hidden Dunes gates and numerous restaurants, open air malls and golf courses are a minute away.

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.


Per Home Owner Association rules: Hidden Dunes does not allow trailers, RV's, motorcycles, boats/jet ski's or golf carts.

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.

summer vacation



We had a great vacation. Our cottage was very clean and exceeded our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed the pickle ball and tennis courts. The staff was great and everyone that played were great too. We look forward to coming back next year.

perfect for our family



Perfect for our family. The space was clean, tastefully decorated, and had everything we needed. Short walk to the pools and beach- which was so convenient for young kids. The private beach access was not too crowded and loved the complimentary chair service. Recommend

We stayed here to get away from Hurricane Ida mostly, but we all were thoroughly joyed to be there even with a catastrophe going on back home. People were great and the place was cozy and clean.

Beautiful place, great location. Only suggestions are more bath towels and board games would be nice. Probably the favorite of all our stays in Hidden Dunes.

We just came back from our vacation. We stayed at many units over the last 8 years at hidden dunes but this one by far was the best equipped and everything was new. We loved the mattresses because they were comfortable. The unit has plenty of space, plenty to enjoy and plenty of privacy. We will be back!

spring break

There were 8 in our party, 4 adults and 4 kids and fit comfortably. We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The cottage is perfect just as pictured! Everything was spotless. The resort is quiet and family oriented. The staff at the beach was very nice and helpful. The walk to the beach is short, about 5 min. Overall the place is beautiful and will return. FYI the resort is about 25 min (driving ) from harbor walk attraction/area.
