About the property

Hidden Dunes Cottage 181 Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

Perfectly proportioned and newly renovated this Hidden Dunes Cottage is a nature lover’s paradise! To the right of the stairs is the walkway to a bubbling fountain and grilling area and to the left is a walk through leading you directly to one of the pools.

Inside, earthy elements including hardwood floors, granite counters and a stone tile backsplash compliment the lush magnolia and oak forests of Hidden Dunes. Pride in ownership is obvious in the upgraded appliances, beautiful Italian artwork and classic plantation shutters. Natural beauty combined with exquisite taste has fashioned a restful retreat from a busy workweek.

Any location in Hidden Dunes means that guests can enjoy exciting amenities. Take a seasonal tram to the lighted basketball courts or the six clay professional tennis courts. Enjoy walking trails with gazebos or take family pictures in the gazebo on the lily pad-clad lake. Lounge in one of the neighborhood pools with gazebos or just laze away the days on Hidden Dunes deeded beach. Also, being so close to the very popular Silver Sands Factory Outlets and dozens of delicious restaurants is an added benefit!

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.

We have stayed in this unit before. We absolutely love it. It’s just the right size and close proximity to the beach and pool. We will be back next year!

10/10 will recommend!

Newman-Daileys’s 181 was beautiful just like the pictures showed. The three bedroom, 3 bath is a great option if your looking to stay in the Miramar area. Comfortable bedding, nice quality towels. Kitchen has everything needed to cook at home during your stay. The ice maker in the freezer was a plus! Super clean, safe stay! Would recommend 10/10!!!

short but nice trip

Very easy check in and checkout process. Nice property that was accurately described. Great staff on hand. We had an issue with the ac on arrival. However, I called the number provided in the check-in materials. They responded and had it fixed within an hour. I couldn't have asked for any better service.

As usual we were very happy and we will be back next year.The only issue we had was the lack of water pressure in the loft bathroom and this led to not being able to use the toilet

vacation at hidden dunes

We love going to Hidden Dunes when we go to the beach. It is a nice quite place, where we can just kick out shoos off and have a grate time. The beach is always clean, the water is always clear. Also the people working there are very nice.

We stayed at Hidden Dunes Cottage 181 weekend of November 7th. This is an "upstairs unit" - I didn't think to ask about this but for older people or people bringing little kids it might be easier to rent a unit downstairs. This unit was very nice & had everything we needed. It was only a short walk to the beach. The pool area was very nice & well kept - loved the beautiful grounds. We would definitely stay there again.

Was an amazing getaway weekend with friends and family We all love the property, definitely going back again!! Highly recommend!!

review of stay



We enjoyed our stay @ Hidden Dunes so much. We were there the week after the 4th of July. Our Cottage was excatly what we expected it to be from the pictures and then some. Very clean and thoughtful ammenaties. It was a short walk to the beach and pool. We might just make this our annual vacation spot! Thank you so much.

Clean and comfortable. Walking distance to beach and just a quick drive to restaurants and shopping. The beach is amazing. We would definitely recommend Destin and this property.

Beach Cottage 181 was extremely comfortable and fairly updated. Donna in the on site office of Newman Dailey was terrific and helpful in every way. My only suggestion is that the wall to wall rugs definitely need serious deep cleaning. I would definitely return.

lovely time!


We had a lovely time! The weather was perfect and still warm enough, even though it was late in the season. The kids loved getting into the pool! The location was very convenient to shopping & dining. The cottage was beautiful and comfortable.

Missing the beach


Hidden Dunes is a beautiful area. We love how we're so close to the beach but also felt very comfortable in the home because of all the trees, etc. Very nicely decorated and very clean. The service was great; the gates guys and the shuttle guy were very friendly.

Submitted on Jul 18, 2012

beautifully decorated!


This is a beautifully decorated and updated cottage. We felt very comforatble, safe & secure. You pass through a security gate to get to the cottage, which we liked. The beach was just a short walk and so was the pool. We enjoyed the extra amenities that csme with the reservation.

Submitted on Jun 10, 2012



This was an incredible cottage. Kitchen is completely updated and the furniture and beds are very comfortable. We chose this one because of the bedding. Usually there are bunk beds and our older kids hate those. We had a fabulous time and look forward to returning!

great weather, great sleep and great play!!!

pale Wisconsin mom


We were very pleased with our cottage. It was clean and comfortable and the kitchen was loaded with just about anything we could have needed. The master bed was very comfortable. The screened in patio was used all the time for eating and relaxing. One negative was that there were rips in a few of the screens that I would have liked to have kept open, but did not want bugs flying in. People we met were all very helpful and friendly. I was a bit disappointed in the run down condition of the whirlpool outside (by the pool) The jets in the whirlpool were weak and not very numerous, but the pool itself was well kept and clean. All in all, the stay was safe, clean and we had a lovely time. Hope to return some day to the best sandy beach!!

This was our first year with Newman-Dailey, but our 14th year at Hidden Dunes. Because of the geat service we receive, we will be using Newman-Dailey as our rental source for future vacations! The cost, check-in, cleaniness of the unit was wonderful. I left some items behind in the unit, and within 48 hrs. the items were on their way back to me. I look forward to dealing with Newman Dailey and Hidden Dunes!
