About the property

Hidden Dunes Cottage 224 Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

Outdoor enthusiasts will be thrilled with Hidden Dunes Cottage 224! Set on the first floor, it’s nestled by the fragrant natural foliage of the south and right across the way from the professional Rubico tennis courts and clubhouse. Plus, from the doorstep you can hear the bubbling of one of the many fountains at Hidden Dunes - just a few steps along the shaded walkway to the first of two pools and gazebos and there you are.

Inside, the calming décor in neutral shades blended with comfortable furnishings seem to echo the peacefulness of the beaches just beyond the front door. Plus, two porches offer ample space for appreciating the quiet woods snuggled against this Destin vacation rental. Upgrades like flat screen TVs throughout, and original art and accouterments add the finishing touches to this haven by the beach.
A location so close to the shores of the Gulf is just the beginning of the perks that Hidden Dunes boasts. Sporting activities on site include bike racks, tennis courts, basketball and shuffleboard courts and for those who just want to sunbathe the two pools have plenty of lounge chairs. To top it all off, on the other side of Highway 98 is the nation’s largest factory outlet, Silver Sands, which also encompasses several restaurants and is near to three 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.


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.

Our stay at cottage 224 was perfect. The cottage was just as pictured and had everything we needed. I have been coming to Hidden Dunes for 20+ years and the Newman Dailey folks always take good care of me. We were able to stay for 2 weeks, played tennis or joined tennis clinics almost every day. Rhett, Lizzy and Brenda at the tennis center are great and work hard to give everyone the very best tennis experience.

We enjoyed the beach cottage


We enjoyed the beach cottage! It had everything we needed. It’s in a perfect location near many grocery stores, shopping and other entertainment places. Our reservation included an umbrella and two chairs for the beach which was such a godsend!! My mom is still raving about her birthday trip!

Once again, we have loved our time at Hidden Dune! We took as many as 4 trips to the beach each day and got plenty of steps in. Cottage 224 is beautifully renovated and well appointed. We will definitely be back!

cottage is lovely



We came for a much needed vacation and to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. We loved the location in Miramar Beach-close enough to the Destin attractions, but not too close. It was very peaceful and restful. The cottage is lovely and we felt right at home. Hidden Dunes is a very nice property, loved the easy access to the beach. We are looking forward to our next opportunity to visit the area.

This was the first real vacation we have taken as a family in about five years. We originally stayed up the road, but decided to extend our stay and this unit was available. We loved it! We look forward to booking our next trip soon. (Thank you for the board games!)

so sad to leave

J. Conner


We leave tomorrow and are sad to go! This cottage was wonderful. I'm so glad we chose this vs a huge high rise or huge resort. It's quiet and peaceful. The cottage was the perfect size for me and my 2 sons. Plenty of space. Having the luxury of a private beach & the umbrella& chairs included was wonderful! The kids have already asked if we can do this every summer! I will definitely come back, had the best vacation here!

hidden dunes review



Reservations assistance on short notice was exceptional (Ryan Coletta). Mostly quiet location. Shuttle to the beach is good due to the distance. The office was supportive to store cold goods and personal items during a relocation (move required due to individual requested extended stay).

hidden dunes 224



Great location! This was the second time at this complex. The unit was quiet and nicely decorated. We were a short walk from the larger pool, which was rarely crowded. There was usually parking close to the beach entrance so it was easy carrying all of our beach gear. Overall a great place to stay. We'd book there again in a heartbeat!

Thank you for offering your cottage to our family. We absolutely loved the vacation & comfort of your cottage. We enjoyed walking to the beach each morning, and exploring the property. we plan to tell our friends & family about your hidden gem in Destin when we return home!

comfortable condo

A TripAdvisor Member


Loved the shady, private trails around the complex and the pools. The complex was very quiet but the upstairs neighbors were stomping around at night. The condo decor was dated but comfortable. The beach was a 10 minute walk away but there are shuttles available. Good value for last minute vacation.

Newman-Dailey Response:

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the Hidden Dunes complex! We have many upper level units available....please just mention the fact that you don't enjoy having neighbors above you. The property manager and owner have been made aware of your remarks about the dated look and they are being addressed. Thank you for your comments and we look forward to the opportunity of hosting you again in the future!

just what we wanted



We only had a few days for a quiet getaway. The cottage at Hisden Dunes was perfect. Excellent in all respects.

relaxing! well, as much as my 4 kids would allow me to relax!



This cottage is perfectly laid out and spacious. The 1 entire livingroom wall being mirrors opens up what otherwise could have been a cramped feeling room and made it much brighter and roomier feeling. The big kitchen gave me the elbow room I needed to cook what meals we ate in house even with my 4 kids trying to run underfoot. The kids were over the moon at the huge size of the bath tubs and once they got in for bath time they didn't want to get out. The pool was conveniently located and wonderful. The water temp was perfect. We're all blondes but we never ended up with green hair. Kudos to whomever takes care of the pool chemicals. They know what they are doing! The beach is immaculate and chair services are set out precisely on time, punctuality is obviously important to the staff and that's a good thing too because it's also important to me. Beach staff was gracious and curteous, and seemed to actually be pleased with their jobs instead of being the kind of people who are just trying to get through their work day. They were eager to help and gave insightful answers to all our questions. The amenities package was to die for according to my husband. He got to play golf every day, his one and only wish to accomplish on this trip. Of course the amenities packages were beneficial to the whole family with free unlimited DVD rentals, 1 free adult admission per day of stay at Big Kahunas, 1 free adult admission for each day of stay on dolphin tours which were very pleasant. There were other places we got discounts or free admissions to as well. It really added to what we got to experience while there. In short, we adore coming to Destin, and having found Hidden Dunes has just helped us plan bigger and better vacations to do all the things we love. We couldn't be more please. Our family looks forward to staying with Hidden Dunes again.

We had a great time in Cottage 224! The theme of relaxation certainly worked for our family.We would come back from a morning at the beach and debate over going out to do more or to simply stay on the back porch listening to music! We really enjoyed the short distance to the beach and took advantage of the shuttle service run by Mr. Kelly. Even he reinforced the ideals of relaxation, naming three rules for his passengers. The third and most important rule being "This is your vacation and you're going to have fun! Thank you so much for providing this lovely environment to relax and have fun!
