About the property

Hidden Dunes Cottage 228 Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

Getaway from a hectic schedule and get into your swimsuit with a vacation on the beach! Hidden Dunes Cottage 228 is the gateway to sunshine and bliss on the shores of the Gulf, great games of tennis and pure and simple relaxation. Plus, Hidden Dunes is one of the few area resorts where the vacation rentals, pools and Rubico tennis courts are nestled among the ancient oaks and magnolias that northwest Florida is famous for. You can finally have some real peace and quiet.

Newly remodeled and with all the necessities of home, this first-floor cottage is the perfect fit for a small family or a couple. The soothing ambiance of this Destin vacation rental is undeniable - whether you are watching a movie on the flat screen TV, entertaining guests in the upgraded kitchen or enjoying the Gulf breeze on the screened-in patio. However, so many adventures are waiting just outside the door! Take the Hidden Dunes tram to the beach, play a game of basketball or horseshoes then walk the nature trails past gazebos and fountains.

Hidden Dunes also enjoys an excellent location. Right outside its gates are the Silver Sands Premium Outlets, several award-winning Golf Courses and countless restaurants offering all your favorites.

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 rented property during COVID the unit was very clean with no contact check in and out. The kitchen has minimal dishes, but I think this is because they have to wash everything to rent it again during COVID. The bedroom is dark and good for sleeping. The beach is less than a ten minute walk. We liked not having to drive to the beach. They even have mounted hand sanitizer dispenser inside by the front door. The AC and refrigerator work great.

visit to see what hidden dunes has to offer



We stayed 2 nights to find out if this was a place we wanted to rent for at least 90 days during the winter. We found this did not meet our needs as there is not much to do unless you just want to sit at the beach or pool. They do offer tennis but, at this time, I'm not physically able to play. We stay each winter further south on the Gulf in a gated community offering endless things to do (tennis, pickleball, bocce, lawn bowling, tons of crafts like pottery, stained glass, woodworking, etc.). We now own our home in this community and are thinking of selling and are looking for a place to rent. Our community only allows you to rent for 3 years therefore we are looking for another community. I gave it a low score because we weren't impressed with our cottage and the lack of things to do.

Newman-Dailey Response:

Thank you for taking time to leave your review. We are sorry that your very short stay did not reveal all the wonderful things our area has to offer. Most guests consider the Destin area a gold mine of activities with everything from all kinds of fishing, boating, and water activities to biking and hiking in some of the most beautiful and unspoiled natural habitats available. Most guests to our area don’t think their vacation time is long enough to experience all there is to do…….that’s why they keep coming back!

The folks at Hidden Dunes were great! Whether it was beach chairs and an umbrella, a tram ride back to the cottage, or tennis lessons, friendly staff made our visit even better.

great place!!

What a great vacation! The unit was very clean and comfortable. The beach was unbelievable and very easy to access. Will definitely be back. ONE COMPLAINT - THE POOL WAS VERY HOT. DON'T KNOW IF THE PUMPS WERE BROKEN OR WHAT, BUT IT WAS EXTREMELY WARM TO SWIM IN AFTER A LONG DAY ON THE BEACH.

cottage # 228

A FlipKey verified reviewer


Our cottage was just great and had everything a person could possibly need. The place was very clean and comfortable. The furnishings were nice and the bed was excellent. It was easy enough to get to the beach area and the people there were very helpful setting up umbrellas and chairs for us. We would definitely return again and would request cottage #228 which felt very homey and just the perfect size for two people. The extra bathroom was such a plus! We thank everyone for such a wonderful stay in Florida that we'll never forget!

an excellent place to stay!!!

Edward TN


This was our first time visit to the emerald coast and we had no idea where to stay. After much internet surfing we kept looking at hidden dunes resort. We decided to make our reservation there and we were very much pleased with our selection. The cottage was absolutely beautiful. The bed very comfortable. The walk to the beach is a little long but my goodness, the walk is beautiful with the trees, flowers, water fountains along the way. This is a very peaceful, relaxing place to stay and when we decide to visit the gulf again we will definitely be looking at hidden dunes!

great place!!!



The condo was very nice with new appliances and the bed was very comfortable. The best part was the facility provides a trolley which brings you to the beach which is not far at all, you can even walk if you wanted to. We used the free parasailing for 1 adult and other benefits on the gift card that is provided when you check in. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay in cottage 228, we did not to leave. We will definitely visit again.
