While shopping for your place on VRBO or the like you will see the pics of blue couches, That is the place. We had a great time. It is an older property so reviews saying select carefully are accurate. If no updates were made you could be walking into 1993. Hunter green leather couches and Nagel framed prints etc. But OUR unit was great. New renovations and appliances. A typical standard well kept VRBO property. It however lists on ResortQuest as well. The balcony is great and the view is awesome. No golf on site for the golfers but you are near quite a few including Regatta Bay and Sandestin. Beach was typical Destin greatness. Large groups and kids will find things tricky. There are better pools out there and the hot tub is TINY. Parking in the tower is a strict 2 car limit per unit. And you may still not get in. Also the garage was made for late 80's-early 90's cars. So best of luck with your Expedition or Excursion. Plenty of great choices for Destin. And this is another one.

Room Tip: My room tip was listed in title. 1704 or 1706.

We booked our condo thru Wyndham Vacation Rentals! We had no problems with them nor did we have any with the condo unit. We stayed on the 4th floor, rm# 0404! Best view of the ocean I think and best floor level becuse we didn't have to ride the elevator long plus the room was right across from it, too! The condo was well cleaned and spacious! Best part is the condo sits right on the beach and not too far above the pool that I could monitor my kids from the deck. This was our first trip to Destin and we would def revisit and stay at this condo again!! We went week of 7/7/13 - 7/13/13. We had two families so we splited the cost of the condo cost!! We had a blast!!!

Of course we were there July 4th week. Only negative is parking. Seem to be short on parking when the place is at capacity. From condo very short walk to beach. Pool is nice. With its location. (Houses and small units etc. gave quite a large section of beach available. Great place!

My family and I have stayed at Hidden Dunes and will be returning again this year. Great property! If you stay in the cottages, you have easy access to several pools on property and are within a 3 minute walk (or less) to the beach. The cottages are just two stories tall so it's great for small children. The cottage we stay in has a screened back porch which is great at night or early mornings. It's just an overall great location, in decent proximity to a grocery store, mall, and the beach. Perfect for any family on vacation.

Hidden Dunes is east of the Destin congestion, just past the Silver Sands Factory Stores mall and almost next door to the Sandestin Resort. It is secluded, but everything you could want is within very easy access - shopping, groceries, movies, golf, restaurants, night life, etc. Tennis is onsite with well-maintained clay courts. The property is beautifully landscaped and maintained.

There are three options for accommodations: Gulfside, a high-rise on the beach; Beach Villas, spacious 3 and 4 bedroom units near either the villa pool or the property's beautiful lake; or Beach Cottages, with lush landscaping, nearer the tennis courts and a huge pool, many located on lovely water feature pools and fountains.

We have stayed in two different Gulfside units and two different Beach Villas. In a previous review, I noted it is important to choose the unit wisely. That remains true. 702 Gulfside (2/2) was dated (Oct 2012); 906 Gulfside (3/3) was not updated, but nicely maintained, with only minor quirks (March 2013); Beach Villa 24 (3/3) is a ground floor unit on the pool, needs a bit of freshening but very convenient, and kitchen supplies were minimal (May 2013); and Beach Villa 45 (4/4), is a bright, airy second floor end unit perfectly situated between the busy pool and lake, with a view of the lake (May 2013). Clearly, we are hooked on Hidden Dunes. Unit 45 wins our prize for the best unit we stayed in - convenient, beautiful location; nicely decorated with comfortable furniture and lots of flat screens; well-maintained; well-stocked kitchen; etc.

After many years thinking a high-rise on the beach was the ONLY way to spend time at the beach, we have been convinced that a larger, more comfortable place with parking right outside your door and a pleasant, short walk to the beach beats the stark, cramped high-rise experience hands down.

Room Tip: Look carefully at the pictures of the units, and maybe a map of the property, to choose your perfect...

We stayed 5 nights in the Condo #184. It was a 2 bedroom apartment with a spacious living area. Very nice! The master room had a king bed - super comfy - and an ensuite bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. It was a huge room. The second bedroom was a queen bed with another bathroom just outside the room. There was a washing machine and dryer. The kitchen was well-equipped, although we could not find any matches for the outside communal grill. In the living area, there was a large couch and a dining room table for 4 tables. There was also an outdoor covered area (with bug netting) and a table with 4 chairs.We were given dishwashing liquid and dishwasher detergent, and washing machine powder.
The beach, which was about 2 minutes walk away, was spectacular. White sand and clear water.
We used 2 different pools - both of which were nice.
This was a good place to stay - we had a great time.
Only negatives: we could hear the people in the condo above us making noise.
