Stay in Beach Cottage 195 and make your next vacation the best one ever! Come to beautiful Destin, Florida, to our lovely three bedroom, three bathroom beach condo in luxurious Hidden Dunes Beach and Tennis Resort, located seven miles east of downtown Destin
and only steps away from the most beautiful beach you have ever seen. It is a 27-acre family-oriented resort, with more private beachfront per unit than any other resort along the Emerald Coast. It is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico (no streets to cross).
Our unit is a "Carolina beach cottage", a charming bleached wood and tin roof design, reminiscent of simpler times, yet possessing every luxury. The unit sleeps eight people with plenty of room to move around. You will enjoy three large bedrooms with three
full bathrooms. The main floor master bedroom has a king size bed, walk-in closet, its own flat screen television and DVD player and a big easy chair with ottoman. The private master bath includes a large garden-style bathtub. The second bedroom boasts a queen
size bed, a flat screen TV, and a full bathroom. The third bedroom is a spacious loft, with two twin beds, a flat screen TV and a full bathroom of its own. The unit is decorated with relaxation in mind. The colors are cheerful and "beachy" - just the right
feeling for a few days away from the daily grind. It is fully equipped with every amenity you could possibly need. The living room has a sleeper sofa and loveseat, large flat screen TV with DVD player, and a stereo system. In the adjacent dining area, there
are a table and chairs for six. The nearby screened porch has its own dining furniture - the perfect place for a shrimp boil or morning coffee! The kitchen that is newly renovated, with its snack bar, is stocked with every kind of dish, pan, glass, utensil,
etc., etc., etc., you can think of. There are also a washer and dryer right in the unit. Last, but not least, is its location. On the second (and topmost) floor, we like to think of the condo as a "tree house", thanks to its position in the tops of the trees.
It is situated in a quiet, private inside corner of the building, allowing the back side with the large banks of windows to face into the trees and overlook the fountain and courtyard below. This provides privacy and a delightful view at the same time. The
soothing sound of the water splashing in the fountains is an extra treat you will absolutely love!

After staying along along the busy scenic hwy 98 for several years, we chose Hidden Dunes 195 this winter. The location is amazing. With all the beautiful trees, landscape, water features, and quietness, you feel miles away from all the hustle and bustle yet you're only a short walk or drive from everything. The cottage itself was fantastic. It was very tastefully decorated with an abundance of space and everything you could possibly need. We are looking forward to returning as many years as we can.

Loved Unit 195 - This is our third year to visit Hidden Dunes and this was our best trip yet. Loved the beachy decor of this unit as well as the central location of the unit on the property. Used the amenities card for dolphin cruise, parasailing, golf and the Track. Most excellent vacation.

Nice condo, great beach! Very disappointed that we were charged $28/hr to play tennis at the facility. We are a tennis family and this was not acceptable to us, especially since there was no mention of this on any of the correspondence. We've been doing beach vacations annually for over 30 years and this is our first stay at Hidden Dunes and the first time we have been charged a per hour to play tennis in the resort that we were staying. This was our second trip to the Destin area and we will not return to this resort for this reason. It was explained to us by the on-site manager that this was a HOa policy. The HOa should reconsider this decision.
Unfortunately, Newman-Dailey has no control over HOA policies at Hidden Dunes. We have, however, made them aware of this guests' complaint.
"Great Unit and Great Location"

Newman-Daily did an outstanding job of handling our reservation especially when we needed 10 days for our spring break. We enjoyed a very friendly check-in process which included the amenities card (beach chairs, golf, etc.) which we used every day. The Hidden Dunes Resort had tennis courts, heated swimming pools, basketball court, beach location, etc. for a family to enjoy. Our unit had everything and had been kept in excellent condition. We were a short walk to the swimming pool, beach, and walked to Starbucks each morning (.7 miles-one way). The result was a great spring break!

We stayed in this unit over Spring Break 2013, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit itself has all the necessities and was quiet and comfortable. It seems as though there has been recent painting and upgrading, because the granite in the kitchen is wonderful and all the cabinets seem to be new and very high quality. (having just remodeled a house, I took notice of and appreciate these things) I'm not a fan of fish murals at all, but the comfortable furnishings all made it work just fine.
The location of the unit within Hidden Dunes is perfect, seemed to be about half way between the tennis courts and the beach access. The tennis courts are the main reason we stayed at this resort, and we were not disappointed at all.
We never had an issue to need service, but the process of booking and checking in went very smoothly. The free use of wi-fi was great for me to be able to check in on the office back home and the work that I do.
I love the location of Hidden Dunes. The beach is wonderful and not too crowded, (although quite chilly in the Spring), but it is also close to all the great shopping that Destin has to offer. Our new absolutely favorite place to eat is Pompano Joes!! Excellent food with a fun atmosphere, right on the beach. Or teens loved it, and it was a huge step up in food quality from Fudpuckers.
Overall I would recommend this unit and especially Hidden Dunes.
"Beautiful, very clean property and very cozy cottage."

We really enjoyed the Hidden Dunes property. The fact that we did not have to drive or cross a street to get to the beach was wonderful. The tennis courts were extremely nice and the Pro there is great. The cottage had everything we needed: fully stocked kitchen, ample room to move around in and the beds were very comfortable. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We look forward to coming back here in the future.

Hidden Dunes is hands down the best place to stay in the Miramar Beach/Sandestin area. I love how you don't have to cross any streets to get to the beach. The grounds are so attractive, with the fountains and trees and coastal-type shrubbery. The two pools are inviting and well-maintained. My boys loved going for a cool "night swim" every night we were there, and then warming up in the hot tub next to the pool. A beach umbrella and chairs were provided with our unit, which is a must for me. Everyone working at Hidden Dunes was warm and friendly. I suppose my favorite thing is that it's not a mega-resort with massive crowds--this is a more serene and relaxed place to stay. Would not stay anywhere else in Miramar or Destin!

The service was awesome! Donna was very friendly and took care of everything we needed. We loved the guys who ran the tram. They were always there with a smile ready to give us a ride to the beach! Hidden Dunes is our favorite place we have stayed. The grounds are so beautiful and quiet. We loved having the pool and hot tub at night. And our cottage was perfect. The balcony was the best. We sat out there and played games with our family or read a book as we listened to the sound of the water fall. It was a great vacation and we will be back next year!

Good stay at Hdc195 and it was quiet until spring breakers moved in next door 2 nights before we left. Good security and safe there. Disappointed in that we wanted to stay in Gulfside next year in an effort to at least see the gulf out your patio and requested that HD manager show us something. She said she didnt have anything to show and we understand that but there was no effort made to accomodate our request (we feel). And its okay we just went with another company. Your fruit basket was great!!! Thanks

Unit 195 is a great place to stay. We loved having three full bathrooms, and everything was clean and in good shape. My kids loved the pools, and it was so nice not to have to cross the street to get to the beach! Please continue to offer free beach umbrella for each day of stay--that was huge for us.

This was our second trip to Hidden Dunes. On this trip we stayed over Labor Day weekend (along with Tropical Storm Lee). We were notified on our way down that the cottage we reserved had some maintenance issues, but the staff quickly found a replacement for us. Even though the weather conditions were not perfect for the beach, we still had a great time hanging out by the pool. All of the beautiful foliage helped block a majority of the wind. Hoping we can plan a third trip soon!
