Property Reviews 
Fall Break Stay
A guest from Kokomo, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2017
Unit was as described as far as amenities. Area rug pictured in front of couch was no longer there. Would have been nice to have one. Toaster was not working, button would not stay down on its own, had to hold it down the whole time. Unit linens were clean but comforters and pillo on beds and mattress covers could use a deep cleaning. Couch could use a cleaning also, it?s definitely seen some wear since the pictures shown were taken. Bathrooms don?t have much counter top space if you are used to having some. There were no scissors in this unit, luckily I had brought my own to open things with. Overall we had a excellent week! View is breathtaking, lots of dolphins to watch! Condo building and parking were great! 2 elevators to use and pool is nothing fancy but was always clean. Beach chair service was excellent and so handy! Ocean is shallow and kids could play easily near shore. There were boogie boards in the closet of the unit that the kids loved useing! Thanks for a great stay and we will return to Gulf Dunes and Okaloosa Island for sure! Would definitely recommend to a friends and family!!

Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
We are absolutely thrilled that you enjoyed your vacation with us to Fort Walton Beach, you chose an amazing condo unit 605 at the Gulf Dunes is lovely! Area rugs do have to be laundered sometimes which requires them to be sent off and we do supply toasters and other basics in every condo of ours so we'll get this one switched out with a new one. Please know that we are in the office every day of the week for issues like this we would bring you a new one straight to your condo in this situation. We can't wait to have you and your back to gorgeous Okaloosa Island.

Gulf Dunes
A guest from north little rock, AR does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2017
I liked the location of the condo and it's beach access with ocean view. I do feel the condo could use some updates. I feel the carpet from the bedroom should be removed. Also the couch cushions appeared to be stained. The amenities item list should be updated as there were paper towels and toilet paper available. Thanks.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
Thank you for taking the time to get us some feedback from your recent stay at the Gulf Dunes in the lovely one bedroom top floor condo 605. Our amenity list includes paper towels and toilet paper as we provide only starters, and we have lots of weekly renters who would need more than the starters we provide and this is why the amenity list is how it is. Thank you for booking through Brooks and Shorey Resorts and we really look forward to having you back soon!!

Family Relaxation

Stayed for 6 days in May, 2017
Great place to stay and relax. don't forget your sunscreen! wonderful place to stay and have fun. pool was quite and relaxing and the beach was close and amazing. only one complaint... bring your own sheets and pillow. these are harsh and rough on the skin. the bed isn't the most comfortable thing ive slept on but after a long day in the sun it did the job.

Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
We love the Gulf Dunes and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in this top floor one bedroom condo. Lovely coastal furnishings give this condo a great feel and max beach comfort.

Perfect Location & Amazing View!
Tara S. from Nashville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in May, 2017
We really enjoyed our stay at this condo! From the moment we walked in we love that place! It has a very open, beachy feel and it has just the most amazing views! The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen had pretty much everything that we needed! That couch was comfortable and we ate almost all of our meals out on the patio table. The location of the condo is very close to the pier but not too close to be overcrowded. It is a very nice 15 minute walk on the beach to get to the pier and all of the restaurants. One thing I would say is that it could use a new patio table and chairs as the ones that are out there are not very sturdy and if you bump the table it almost seems like it could tip. A nice wooden hightop table and chairs that would be amazing! The kitchen could also use some better grilling tools and a soft spatula and one to use for flipping pancakes and making breakfast. Overall we loved our stay at this condo and we're definitely book it again!

Good location, cheaper than an hotel but a little dated
A guest from Atlanta, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2017
My wife and I spent a few days here to relax. The beach was great and the complex has free chairs with umbrellas. The complex is a little dated and unkempt in areas. The unit has been updated and is adequate but wouldn't recommend to friends.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
How unfortunate to hear your less than enthusiastic review with very few details on exactly what issues you came across that led to the low ratings. This condo is updated and very adorable and you said it's more economical than a hotel and you get an entire home to apologize Gulf Dunes didn't impress and we hope you were able to enjoy the sun and sand.

April 2017 Vacation
A guest from West Terre Haute, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2017
Our vacation rental was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. I would say the only complaint I had was that the pull out sofa bed was very uncomfortable. We wanted to use it since it was right by the sliding glass doors and we could here the gulf at night, but the bed/mattress was very uncomfortable. Other than that though we had a very nice stay. Everything in the rental was clean and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
We are so elated to know you enjoyed your stay with us! Unfortunately, as the units are privately owned all we can do is let the owner of the unit know of your recommendation of the pullout sofa. We do want to remind you we have 160 units throughout Okaloosa Island , please call us when you are ready to book your next getaway and one of our live representatives will be more than happy to assist you in finding the perfect condo!

Fort Walton condo
A guest from Kennesaw, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2016
Overall the condo was ok. However, the bed covers appeared old and dirty. I didn't feel clean sleeping with them so I just took them off the bed. It was cool this time of year and there wasn't a blanket that fit the bed. The tv on the wall had cords hanging all down the wall and there was really no charm whatsoever about this property. The bedroom was not on the ocean side and that was a negative as well.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
We are sorry to hear that the unit was not up to your standards. We do have a large selection of 2 and 3 bedroom units with Ocean view's, next time you visit us we do recommend you give us a call and a live representative will be glad to assist you find the perfect condo for your stay.
We will be alerting our housekeeping staff of the blanket issue, we would of hope you would of given us a call as the issue raised or alerted the front desk as we would of loved to make your stay a pleasant one
We do hope these issues do not keep you from visiting us again, as we do look forward to having you enjoy another getaway with us !

A guest from Teutopolis, IL recommends this property.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
We appreciate you taking the time to submit feedback from your stay in 605 at the Gulf Dunes! This one bedroom top floor unit is a gem. We are thrilled you were able to enjoy the amenities our SANDSHORE package brings with your reservation-movie rentals, BEACH SERVICE, golf, dolphin cruise. Our apologies the one bedroom one and half bath floorplan seemed a bit small to you. We keep the official floorplans to each condo on our website so you can see the setup. The two bedroom condos there have an extra bunk room-they afford lots of space, maybe you'd be interested in that? Also you can choose as condo with the MASTER bedroom on the beach so you can wake up looking at the Gulf of Mexico. Give us a call next time you're planning your vacation so we can be sure to get you in a condo that has the size that you would like. Come back soon for more swim suits and flip flops!

Average
Astrid H. from concord, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in June, 2016
The condo overall was nice, but not quite as pictured. The sofa has definitely been used a lot since this picture. The floor constantly stayed sandy, would have been nice to have a rug by the couch. The comforter in the master needs to be updated. Overall I would rate the condo a B. We enjoyed our trip and will return.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
Unfortunately, being DIRECTLY on the white sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico does cause sand to be present in every aspect of your day! Thank goodness the sand here is white, soft and no rocks or pebbles to worry with! I'm sorry you felt the floors in your condo we not up to your expectations, this does come with renting a beach front vacation home sometimes. One of those things you wouldn't think of while planning, but you can't avoid while here!! This 605 condo has recently been updated and was totally redone. We'll send out manager to inspect the couch and see about its shape, as it is not old at all. We'll see to it that we get this condo back up to par with its updates, so that future guests don't feel it is worth a B rating. We certainly strive to make sure all our rentals are the best they can be! Thank you for booking through Brooks and Shorey Resorts, we appreciate you and we hope to see you again in the near future to Fort Walton Beach!

Wonderful stay
A guest from Birmingham, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in April, 2016
We rented this unit during a golf tournament in which my husband was playing. Not being one for hanging around the golf course, I spent a good bit of time in the condo and especially on the terrace. The condo is very clean, updated, and cozy. Being on the waterfront was important to me and I really had a magnificent view. Everyone was so nice and helpful. The condo complex was not too noisy and I enjoyed that also. The complex is so centrally located and it is so easy to reach entertainment areas. Parking, checking in and out, etc were very easy.

The condo was very clean and perfect for my family of 4. Views were beautiful. The lady at check in was very friendly and informative. We even received a small welcome gift! This place is conveniently located to a Publix and just a very short drive to Destin.

October 2014
A guest from Jeffersonville, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014
The condo has pealing on the cabinets, the outdoor furn. wasn't pretty, but very sturdy!The bed was confy but not the couch or chair. But the location and staff made up for all this!! People were friendly everywhere and helpful! I would stay at this place again, just maybe not this condo. There were only 2 of us, but it would be uncomfortable for any more in my opinion. Manage company was #1.

Ft. Walton Beach getaway
A guest from Cornelius, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014
We have stayed at this property before however this was the first time we were disappointed with the condition of the unit. We felt it was worn and in need of work and updating. Wallpaper border was torn and peeling in places,cracked tile, stained carpet in living area,furniture was worn, patio furniture coming apart and chairs cracked and dirty, and cabinetry in kitchen and bathrooms is worn,and needs work or replaced. It is obvious the owners are just that and they don't use the unit on a regular basis. We do like the convenience of the property but will definitely find another unit and have it checked out before booking.

Terri B. from Monroe, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014
had a great time although the pull out couch was the WORST I have ever slept on. The furniture was very outdated and should be replaced. With that being said, the office lady was very nice and the location was great. Would stay there again if couch was updated!

Rough Around the Edges
Erin H. from Sterrett, AL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014
I know it's a generally amazing thing to be in a condo overlooking Ft Walton Beach only two properties down from the main drag, but this condo was a little beaten up. The wicker on the table outside was coming apart, the blinds didn't shut and were held together with a twist-tie. The rug had a big bright pink stain. The hide-a-bed was very worn and thin. The microwave would run on its own unless the door was pushed up and in far enough. The water smelled really funky. Some of the dishes were dirty. The coffee pot leaked brown water from underneath and had no filters. The bottom rack in the fridge door came off the first night dropping/breaking two glass liquor bottles onto the floor for us to clean up. The bathrooms' wood cabinets were chipped off in places and the soap dishes were caked with some weird grainy residue. Looking down from 6th floor, we could see caked-on dirt surrounded the pool. Parking was good. Washer & dryer, toaster, stove, shower, dishwasher all worked well. Plenty of dishes, silverware, measuring cups, coffee cups, etc. View was fabulous of course. Sleeping was good for 5 adults (6 would require the hide-a-bed instead of the just the couch). Brooks and Shorey have been great the past 2 stays, but this property was just kind of dumpy. Not a total dump, just dumpy.

Gulf Dunes is a great place to be
A guest from Bremen, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013
Everything was great except for the incident I had with the dryer. I noticed that it wasn't drying very well so I checked the lint filter and it was full of sand. I emptied it out and vacuumed the inside of the dryer because when I removed the lint filter, sand poured out of it into the dryer tub. After I cleaned the filter and replaced it, it dried my clothes much better. Other than that, it was great. Will you please make sure that guests know how to remove and clean the filter? Also will you make sure this is on the checklist for the cleaning crew to double check? Other than that the property is beautiful, the condo was great and the friendly helpful staff are second to none. Everyone we met was extremely nice.

Great location, love the Resort, Condo needs a lot of work
Tim L. from Papillion, NB does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013
Overall we enjoyed our time in GD 605 and were very happy with the location, the pool, the management, and use of umbrella and beach chairs every day so don?t take the following as dissatisfaction with our time there. Was not pleased with condition and cleanliness of the balcony furniture - was too dirty to use and one of the main reasons we picked this Condo! The Condo is in need of a lot of repair and updating. The kitchen sink faucet leaked a lot; Refrigerator had water leaking under it that we had to wipe up constantly; items on top shelf of the Refrigerator froze; many cracked tiles and tiles without grout; no pillow cases on extra pillows; bed linen was stained; bed cover looked like it needed cleaning badly; was rust on the dryer that transferred to our clothing; and the dishwasher left nasty black residue on the dishes. One last thing; if you?re a light sleeper this is not the room for you. The bedroom window is directly across from the elevators which can mean a lot of noise up until around 11-12 at night.

Vacation
John W. from Fishers, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in April, 2013
The overall condition of the property was okay. There was a lot of wear and tear on the appliances, counter tops and cabinets. The small appliances (toaster, coffee pot etc.) were dirty. The dish washer had garbage and hair in the bottom of it. We had to clean it before we could use it. There was rust on the side of the refrigerator and in the bathrooms on the soap dishes. The refrigerator froze the food and beverages we put in it even after turning the temp controller to a lower setting. The floors were not clean. The patio and patio furnisher were very dirty. We had to call maintenance to fix the shower head, light in the shower/bathtub area and outlets in the bathrooms before we could use them.On the plus side, the bed and living room furniture were comfortable and the view from the property was great. We also really enjoyed the pool area and beach. The staff was friendly and helpful.We would recommend the property but not the condo to a friend.

We have stayed in this unit for 3 years. I think it needs a little updating. The bedroom is way too dark. The bathrooms are great, as is the kitchen and living area. There are many areas of paint chipping on the woodwook. the TVs are pretty old. We love the location , but sadly it has been rented next winter, so we have fould another unit. (This kitchen is very welled stocked.

Brad C. from Round Rock, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012
Spectacular view. Flooplan functional. Washer/dryer, fridge, dishwasher, microwave great. The condo had an odor. Was it musty, dirty carpet, rented by smokers? It was similar to what I've experienced in a old, poorly run motel. Even after airing the room out, the odor returned. The TV and TV cable quality was poor. The internet worked great.

Stinky
A guest from Fayetteville, AR recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2012
When we arrived, the smell of bug spray in the elevator was overwhelming, and the spray of room deodorizer in our room was choking and remained so for days.The tiles in the hallway near the kitchen are loose and rock when you stand on them. All in all, although really beautiful, the condo can use a major overhaul.

While I greatly enjoyed my stay with the beautiful view and friendly staff and the cleanliness of the unit, it was obvious that the unit needed some repairs (cracked tile, knobs on cabinetry were broken, etc). Also it seemed that the elevators had no semblance of air conditioning and the power went out in my building during the stay. Other than that I was pleased.

Kimberly W. from Carrollton, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2007
I was traveling alone with 4 children. The last night of our stay 2 men tried to come in on us and we had to wait until a deputy arrived, because no security was on the property and no one was at the front desk at night. It was very scary for me. I will stay at this location everytime I can, but from now on I will have my husband with me. I am sure the 2 men who tried to come in on us relized that there were 3 teenage girls, a lady, and a small child by themselves, making us an easy target. Luckily the deputy caught the 2 men right outside of our door. The condo in which we stayed was beautiful and I am staying on the property again this year with my husband and children. I have also referred this property to several of my friends which I know that one has already made her reservations.
