Gulfside in Hidden Dunes Resort was founded directly on the brilliant white sands of the Gulf of Mexico and Destin vacation rental 701 offers more than the usual opportunities to soak in epic beach time and views. The potential for relaxation maximization is endless here! Whether you are reading a book on the northeast bedroom’s beach balcony, watching the sunset from the middle bedroom’s beach balcony or enjoying a cool drink from the master suite while emerald waves roll right before your eyes– every room in Gulfside 701 has incredible beach views. In fact, the whole family can gather on yet another very large and furnished private balcony and enjoy a home cooked meal freshly prepared in the fully-stocked kitchen.
Apart from being a haven for beach lovers, it’s also got a touch of elegance noted by the carefully coordinated décor and furnishings and a Jacuzzi bathtub in the master suite. Moreover, condo 701 has one of the largest floor plans in Gulfside and Hidden Dunes and one of the best locations in Destin, FL and South Walton. Surrounded by three pools, rubico tennis courts, basketball and horseshoe courts and untouched foliage are some of the perks that come from a vacation in Hidden Dunes. Yet just outside the gates is an exciting world of epic shopping at Silver Sands Outlets, dining at award-winning restaurants and championship golf courses all within a five minute drive.

Loved the floor plan and the property drive to the condo. Thanks Kate for cleaning the carpet. Smelled and looked great. Kate told us about the patio door being little hard to open due to it being a storm weathered door. Not only could we girls not open it, but the men had a hard time to push it open. This effected our use of the balcony major. When the guys were golfing we could not open the door. Yes, the master bedroom had a door and we could open it, but we needed to use the living room to get the benefit of the ocean sounds and sitting on the balcony. Also, the door pad was difficult to open. It would lock up and we had to wait for it to clear to put code in again. It would take 5 minutes sometimes to get inside. If these concerns are addressed we will be booking our trip with Kate for next June. Thanks.
Thank you so much for taking time to let us know about your experience at Hidden Dunes! We are pleased to hear that you and your party enjoyed the property and the unit. We have addressed the patio door issues and the key pad will be inspected before our next guest arrival. Thanks again for letting us know about these issues and we look forward to seeing you soon at the beach!

“We were very relaxed and enjoyed our time”

Service and amenities were good, the only thing we needed to bring was a few trash bags and beach towels. Otherwise, we had everything we needed! The condo was spacious and comfortable. I loved having the patio with the view of the ocean! My favorite part was the beaches. My least favorite was the cool winds. One recommendation I would make with regards to the condo is to remove the carpeting and replace with tile. From the moment we entered into the condo, it had a smell of dampness/musty which I expect would not exist if the carpet was not there.

The unit is badly in need of updates. A review was written last year regarding the tattered drapery, the hanging ceiling fan. I would include the need to replace carpet, the drapery rod falling off ceiling, towel rods broken in 2 bathrooms. Scalding water in kitchen. My concern would be with Newman Dailey. I think they should remove this unit from their rental properties. Several employees indicated that they have asked the owner to make repairs and their requests go unanswered. It becomes a reflection on the rental agency willingness to rent a unit that is below standard.
Working with Donna at Hidden Dunes was delightful. Always responds immediately and with a great attitude. Thanks Donna.

Loved the balcony with the gorgeous view,the comfortable furniture in the living room complete with a large TV, the well stocked kitchen and good floor plan. The facility is very convenient and the staff helpful and responsive. We greatly appreciated the complimentary umbrella and chairs and the umbrella crew were excellent.
The bedroom drapes had to be worked on and should be replaced. One set was in tatters. The sliding glass door in the living room was so difficult to open it often took two adults pushing at the same time, even after a someone came and worked on it. The fan in the living room was so loosly hung we were afraid to use it because it might fall down. The condo was lovely, but not perfect!

We enjoyed the unit very much. The air conditioning in the front bedrooms does not work well though. The rooms remained warm and required our guests to use the fans at all times. The cable in the front bedroom did not work. The building lost power the morning of our last stay and water. We were not able to take showers or fix breakfast before we left. I called the office and they said they would note it for a discount in the future.

This property and unit were great. We would definitely stay here again. We fell in love with the property as a whole and really enjoyed the unit. It has been well maintained. The owners obviously take pride in their investment. We were relocated to this property after the a/c was not properly working at our original reservation. We were so happy to be moved. The other property was horrendous. Being moved to Hidden Dunes by Landra saved our vacation. Thank you Landra for being so professional and helpful!
