    Very cozy and clean condo. Felt like home. Teresa responded to my questions very fast. Very modern.

    We all loved it.

  • Beach and pool with kids!
    Rosalinda H.

    Overall we enjoyed our stay. The shuttle to the beach was a plus. Shuttle staff and security all nice and helpful. It was nice to have the pool close as well.

    The pictures don’t really do the property justice. The condo is exactly as advertised and well maintained. Teresa was very accommodating and checked on us several times. The only complaint I have has nothing at all to do with the owners. While most days the 5-10 minute walk was actually relaxing. The tram to the beach was not always available. While carrying multiple heavy things down, made it more difficult. We would definitely think about staying again!

  • It was great!
    Jerry H.

    We will stay again!

    Lu D.

    Need to walk about 10 minutes to the beach but we were very happy with this place. Thank you!

  • Relaxing Getaway
    Terry R.

    It was a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of life! No elevators to load after a hot day on the beach was a great bonus! We’ve always stayed at high-rise condos facing the beach but opted for something with a little more privacy this time. We had no regrets! With 5 adults, one teenager, a two year one and 6 month old, we really appreciated the privacy of the cottage life and especially loved the screened-in back porch-much safer than a balcony with little ones! We were steps away from a nice big pool that offered patio furniture with comfortable chaise lounges and table sets with umbrellas. Even though we weren’t directly on the beach (but still didn’t have to cross a busy street), a trolley service was offered.

    My men especially loved the cottage with the huge screen tvs, and I loved the UNBELIEVABLE master shower!

    A little side note about the area: Since we’ve always gone to Panama City Beach, I was unsure about the actual beach at Mirimar, but it was SO NICE! The beach for Hidden Dunes was spread out and spacious and absolutely gorgeous water!

    Book now. You won’t regret it!

    Travis H.

    Very safe and quiet gated community. Can walk to beach or drive with close parking in community. Condo was clean and super fun. Huge TVs in every room. Kitchen is stocked with plenty to cook with!

  • Gorgeous condo
    Sachin M.

    We loved this beautiful cottage. It is completely remodeled. A short (5 minutes) walk to the sugar-white sand beach with no streets to cross. We had a great time. The unit has everything you need for a great vacation and has been kept very well. I would definitely recommend this condo. Thank you Teresa and Victor for hosting us!

  • Beautiful cottage

    We loved staying in this recently updated cottage. The furnishings were new and high-quality, large TVs came in handy when weather at the beach didn’t cooperate. We will definitely be back :)

    We enjoyed our stay at Hidden Dunes. The unit was fantastic. The heated pool was nice, and the beach was only about a 5 minute walk!
