Nice stay. Tracy cleaned couch arms which need attention. wish we were forewarned about an outside group taking over the heated pool during certain hours of the week- they took up miry chairs with their towels and belongings while in pool. No water one day nm power another- all without notice. There has to be a way to correct this ongoing issue- year to year. All in all the staff was great - especially Tracy in Housekeeping. Now if we can just get Newman Dailey to quit raising the tent exponentially every year. Would be nice to bring back social events post pandemic for snowbirds- we had maybe one with short notice with promise of more to come which didn't seem to happen.

Lovely cottage in a good, family friendly area near shops and a short walk to the beach.

We had an excellent stay and especially enjoyed the proximity to the pool as well as sitting on the screened in porch during the late afternoon rain. Beaches were lovely and not too crowded in our designated section. Beach chairs are free with the stay which made it seamless to pop up and down with our baby. The neighbors above were a bit noisy and woke our baby a couple of times one night, but otherwise everything was perfect. Would definitely stay again.

We had a great time at Hidden Dunes. The condo was even better in person. It felt very clean and spacious. We appreciated the updated master shower too! It was a quick walk to the beach and having the 2 free beach chairs and the guys there to set them up and help carry beach gear down was awesome! Hidden Dunes felt very quaint and well taken care of. We enjoyed our stay.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Hidden Dunes. Really nice area. Didn't have a need to contact the property manager as our home was clean and had no issues.

We had a great trip!! The cottage was very clean and spacious. We also really enjoyed the beach and pool access. We took our one year old to the beach for the first time and she had a ball! We would definitely love to return in the future!

We absolutely loved the location of this cottage! It is nestled in the shady live oak and fern grove super close to the lovely large swimming pool, yet just far enough away to maintain privacy. The beach is a short 1-2 block walk from the cottage. We were happy to have complimentary beach service every day which the VRBO does not mention. The White Diamond beach service guys were very attentive and professional. We made a lot of use out of the screened-in porch while not on the beach. The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is because if the cottage sleeps 6 people, then there needs to be comfortable seating for 6 elsewhere in the cottage as well. Another easy chair in the LR and maybe a comfy love seat on the porch would really add a lot to this otherwise perfectly nice cottage. We would stay again. Thank you
We liked the property. The master bed could be more comfortable - but that's really the only thing that could be better!

Thank you for your recent review. Unfortunately, beds are very tricky, since everyone’s preferences are different. Some guests prefer a firm mattress while others prefer them soft. We appreciate your feedback and hope you’ll call us in the future if there anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable. We look forward to welcoming you back to the beach.
The condo was very nice. Walking distance to multiple family friendly environments such as, beach, basketball court, playground, pond for fishing, pools, horseshoes and corn hole, etc. the way the resort sets the umbrellas on the beach for beach service is different then I have seen before, (u-shaped), but allows for all umbrellas to see the water and you can put your personal chairs in the water. Will definitely be back to visit.

My family and my sisters family rented two cottages. Both cottages were beautiful and equipped with everything we needed.
It was too cool to swim in the ocean ( thanksgiving) so we really enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub. We did some shopping at the near by outlet malls and visited the boardwalk in Destin. The kids enjoyed the basketball court near our cottage.
We would definitely stay here again. It’s a beautiful, clean resort

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are thrilled to receive this 4 star review and appreciate your suggestion. We have sent your review to the property manager so she may discuss upgrading the televisions with the owner. We hope to welcome you back to the beach very soon.
This was our 12th family visit to Hidden Dunes. As usual everyone had a great time. The weather and beach were perfect. The condo was the best we ever had. Newman-Dailey took very good care of us. We look foreward to our next visit.

WE had a wonderful holiday in cottage 198. We came down so we could play tennis and take George Cobia's tennis clinic and private course. I had been playing tennis at Hidden in 2015 2015 2017 and 2018, while staying at another resort. WE love the sense of community in the tennis group and staff and that was the apex of our holiday. The staff at Newman-Daley was wonderful and gave us immediate help when we needed something. Too bad the internet was sketchy and also that we we could not use Netflix. The staff really tried everything in their power in this area. Overall, we really enjoyed our vacation.

This was our first family outing since my husband passed away in December. We needed this vacation. We had the best time!! The cottage was perfect for us, we loved it. It was clean when we arrived. It was a quiet location, close enough to the beach to walk, swimming pool practically at the backdoor (which the kids loved), basketball court across the street, and close to shops, restaurants, and activities. We hope to be back next year!!!

Love Hidden Dunes Cottage 198, second year staying here! Love the new furniture, decor and new appliances! We love the tile floors in the bedrooms and the new rugs!

Very quiet, clean and spacious. 24/7 security guards on site and gated community. Felt very safe. We had everything we needed. Easy access to the beach, pool and hot tub! I recommend bringing your own sheets, they were a little scratchy however I may be a little picky as my friend pointed out. Great place, we will go back!

My family of five stayed at this cottage during our Christmas Break. This cottage was everything we hoped for! This cottage was beautifully tiled throughout, so the previous posts about the carpeting can be ignored. This cottage was clean and well maintained! We had no problems or difficulties at all! It was our very first stay at Hidden Dunes and our experience was excellent! I would highly recommend staying at Hidden Dunes and Cottage 198! You will not be disappointed! We definitely will be staying at Cottage 198 again in our future!

First, we love Hidden Dunes and have stayed there for the past 25 years (not every year). This recent visit, we rented a cottage rather than a gulf side unit due to a physical problem with the gulf side units. I was looking forward to using the large pool right outside our cottage, but was shut down the whole week for maintenance , this the first week in October, most beautiful week of the year. What a disappointment.
Regarding the gulf side units, it would be great if N-Dailey could get some of the rental unit owners to make their toilet seat area more handicapped usable such as installing grab bars.
Thanks for listening,

This condo was excellent for us. We had 5 adults and 2 children. We stayed here for a full week. Everyone had plenty of room and we didnt feel like we were invading each others privacy. The kids loved how close the pool and beach were to the condo. We all loved the amenities, range of restaurants, shopping centers and grocery store access. You will love this place! It was our first trip to Destin and I would not hesitate to book this condo again in the future!!!

We chose this resort because of the amenities and access to the beach. The tennis was great, the grounds and pools were beautiful, and the location of the cottage was perfect. It was nicely updated and comfortable. We would definitely consider staying here again on our next visit to Destin.

We can't believe what a wonderful time we had at this cottage. It was cute and clean. The complex was something I never experienced. It was like being at our own private resort. We can't wait to come back!

This was our first family vacation to Hidden Dunes and I am certain that this will not be our last! We had a wonderful time throughout the entire vacation. The instant we walked into Cottage 198, we felt at home. Everything was on hand for us, from the pots and pans to extra beach toys for the kids. This place was awesome! The management staff were very courteous and made sure that we were settled in. An added convenience was having the beach, pool,playground and basketball courts within walking distance! My only regret was having to leave the place! We will definitely make a return trip to Hidden Dunes, this was a vacation in paradise!
