About the property

Hidden Dunes Cottage 185 Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

Hidden Dunes Cottage 185 features an undeniably cheery nautical décor and a unique floor plan that is sure to make any Destin vacation smooth sailing! Fanciful sea life carvings, rustic furnishings in shades of blue plus eye-catching maritime art decks the nooks and crannies of this Gulf side cottage among the trees.

Extras include an oversized bathtub in the Primary Suite’s bathroom, a colorful loft bedroom that will delight your little minnows, an upgraded kitchen with high-end counters and appliances as well as a fully furnished, screened-in porch overlooking the serene Hidden Dunes forest.

Cottage 185’s location behind the gates of the Hidden Dunes resort also means that lots of great amenities are at your fingertips. Take a tram to the lighted basketball court or the six professional tennis courts. Enjoy walking trails with the family then gather them together for a memorable picture in the gazebo on the lily pad-clad lake. Lounge in one of Hidden Dunes pools or just laze away the day on Hidden Dunes private beach. Plus, great shopping and dining choices are all within a mile’s distance.

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.

perfect beach retreat

Dr joe pettigrew


We come to the beach a couple times each year for over 40 years. This condo was in a terrific location, everything was fresh and clean, property was well maintained. I would highly recommend this unit. The Newman Daily organization was the best we have used.

perfect getaway!!!



We absolutely loved our stay at Hidden Dunes! Cottage 185 was perfect! It was very clean and great location to the many amenities of Hidden Dunes. The cottage is decorated perfectly to give you that “getaway beach vibe”. We loved the screened porch to relax with our morning coffee and take in the sound of the water feature nearby. We will definitely return to this hidden gem. Thank you for making our spring getaway “perfect”!

great stay



Cottage 185 was very beautifully decorated and in close proximity to the other two units we rented for the week for our family. Our grandson loved sitting out and watching TV on the screened in porch.

cottage 185



We are a returning guest because we definitely liked the location on property. During our visit this time all TV's were nice size and perfect for viewing in the evening, A/C excellent, nice atmosphere throughout unit including patio. There were a few problems we would like to mention. The Bathroom master sink faucet was very difficult to operate (needed 2 hands to operate lever). The Master bedroom mattress and Couch in living room are no longer firm which gives you little support. Sleeping was a huge problem because of the lack of support both for my husband and I. Switching sides, sleeping more in the middle did not help.

We had an amazing time during our stay. The unit was perfect. It was clean. It is well laid out and the decor beachy but not overdone. It was large enough for 6 adults with no issues. The kitchen was well supplied and large enough that we cooked almost every meal. The walk to the beach is short and the beach chair amenity was really fancy. The pool and hot tub access was really nice and the basket ball court was a bonus (However, if cornhole is your thing, bring your own bean bags). I rate this unit 5 stars and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Hidden dunes for President's Day weekend. It was beautiful!! Waking up looking at the ocean every morning, it was breathtaking. Our condo is beautiful and the arts work was fantastic. We have BIG family totaling 7 of us. Hidden Dunes 185 slept everyone comfortably and kids really enjoyed the spiral staircase leading to the loft.

Everything was absolutely amazing! I've already recommended Hidden Dunes to two other families that plan to visit Destin soon.

We really enjoyed our stay. The resort property staff were so friendly and accommodating. I didn't know that we had a complementary umbrella until we arrived. That was a nice surprise. The only recommendation I have is that the owners leave the closet in the master bedroom open and the pantry. Otherwise, it was great!

cottage 185, hidden dunes

Shelley GA


We were very pleased with our stay at Hidden Dunes. This was our second vacation at Hidden Dunes. Cottage 185 was perfect for our family of 8. When we chose this cottage it was primarily to make sure we had enough beds. It accommodations were exactly what we needed. The cottage was very clean and well kept up. Newman - Dailey' s staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Thank you all so much!

This place is nicely decorated and very current. There is a TV everywhere you turn and space for a lot of people. Light bulbs are low and all the rooms seem very dark. Kitchen tools are flimsy need some metal cooking tools.
