"Oct vaca
Nice condo"
Oct 11, 2018 - Marie F., Florence, KY



"awesome
great home! cant go wrong here"
Oct 05, 2018 - Terry M., Lebanon, TN



"Family Vacay on Okaloosa Island
The location was great. The staff were helpful. The condo was nice and clean. The beach is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed our stay. Would be great if there was a place on site and on the beach to recycle plastic/glass. We accumulated a lot of bottles, etc during our stay."
Aug 15, 2018 - , Godfrey, IL



"Good But Not Great
This year we stayed at Gulf Dunes! It was one of the condos that one of the girls at the office sent in a email as a discounted condo for having been staying at their properties for the last 10 plus years. Well the discounted $100.00 did not compare to the space in the condo. it was small and it was a challenge with disabled daughter. I will say that the managers on site were exceptional as the two girls helped in everyway they could. Being a disabled veteran parking for me and my disabled daughter was very good, they always had a spot available whenever we returned from dinner or just riding around sight seeing. I hope they would provide better discounts for long time members and vets."
Jul 30, 2018 - Everett O., Broussard, Louisiana



"Great place to stay!
We loved it from the moment we walked through the door. Clean and comfortable. It was great having a washer and dryer in the unit. The view was spectacular and everyone was so nice. Plenty of cabinets filled with useful kitchen items, but it could use an extra empty cabinet for grocerys, especially if you're staying more than a couple of days. The best part was visiting our son and daughter-in-law stationed at Hurlburt Field a few minutes down the road."
Jul 24, 2018 - Keith K., Miami, FL



"Home away from home
Great"
Jul 18, 2018 - , Lavaca, Ar



"Nice!
Nice, clean unit. We were called when our unit was available, which was earlier than expected. Living room has new couches and new tv. Kitchen has plenty of dishes. Bedroom and bathrooms could use a bit of updating/redecorating (carpet, nightstands, etc...) but the beds and pillows were comfortable and has new quilts. Easy access to beach. We could see the fireworks on the pier from our balcony - which had nice furniture on it. We really liked the free beach chairs. And although we didn't do it, you can rent kayaks, paddle board, and other stuff for very reasonable prices on the beach. We would stay here again! "
Jul 03, 2018 - Jamie W., Hixson, TN



"GD 505
Weather turned out great and condo was perfectly located directly on the beach h. "
Jun 13, 2018 - , Helena, AL



"Perfect Location!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay here very much! The view was the primary seller when we booked and it did not disappoint. I could sit and look at that water 24/7. The property is as described except for the balcony furniture. It has been upgraded to Adirondack style chairs. Everything was clean and in working order...wish the sofa/love seat had been a little more comfortable. Washer and dryer in condo is a big plus...and both worked well. Internet worked great! I hate when a property advertises high speed internet and it only works for one minute on Wednesday nights in the bedroom while holding iPad next to window! Not here. Pool area was nice and well kept. We could walk to a couple of great restaurants, but driving into Destin was easy. (We were there week before Memorial weekend....still considered off season. I’m sure traffic and crowds pick up later). Great service from Brooks and Shorey. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. The only thing I found wanting was a full length mirror. Lol!"
May 29, 2018 - , Louisa, KY



"Practically Perfect!
There were just a few things that kept this condo from being absolutely perfect. 1. The couch needs to be replaced asap! 2. The carpet in the master bedroom needs to be replaced. 3. I would have liked a full length mirror. Everything else was 100% perfect. No noise, perfect view, great a/c, etc. etc. "
May 03, 2018 - , West Plains, MO



"Will stay here again
The bldg is in a great location. Beach chairs/umbrella are provided. Two free movies per night. Free Excursions. The condos are all oceanfront. Great helpful staff. I will definitely stay here again next year. "

"Gulf dunes 505
It was amazing! Beautiful view! Short distance to the beach! Great location!"
Oct 04, 2017 - , Hurricane, WV



"1st Florida Vacation
The vacation rental was very nice and clean. It was just perfect for our family of 4. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The beach was beautiful, relaxing and not over busy. It was great to have the chairs and umbrellas every day to use. We were very lucky and woke up Saturday morning before leaving to see several dolphins swimming off our balcony. Great place!"
Aug 26, 2017 - Trina K., Castroville, TX



"Fort Walton
This was one of the best vacation beach rentals I've stayed at! Looks exactly like the photos! Beach chairs and umbrellas are a plus! Floyds restaurant on the beach is fabulous! "
Aug 13, 2017 - Dixie M., Baldwin, GA



"GREAT PLACE TO STAY !!!!
Everything was fine except the perks that are supposed to come with the rental are not what they are cut out to be . To hard to book something and they are not that great !"
Jul 10, 2017 - Dana D., Gordon, GA



"Very good
Lovely beach & nice condo. Great services available. "
Jun 19, 2017 - Wendy M., Iuka, IL



"Awesome Experience
My husband and I stayed at this unit for our anniversary instead booking with a regular hotel. We were apprehensive at first as we were not familiar with the area.

This unit is amazing! It was cozy and filled with character. There is an awesome view of the beach and it is easily accessible. Organizing our stay was easy as the management company was professional and prompt. We will be back to visit "our home away from home" soon! We can't wait! Thank you to the owners for sharing this jewel!"
Jun 03, 2017 - , Montgomery, AL



"My May Vacation
Experience was very good (as usual). Staff was extremely helpful. Umbrella guys (Michael) was very friendly and helpful. Great location. Will definitely be back."
May 26, 2017 - MATTHEW E., BOSSIER CITY, LA



"Nice location, but not well cleaned.
This was our second time staying in a unit at the Gulf Dunes. We love this location. Unit 505 had all the amenities we desired, including washer and dryer, decent kitchen, WIFI, and included beach service. However, we were very dissatisfied with the cleanliness of the unit. We had to clean black foot and hand marks on the walls, rails and ladder rungs in the bunk section for our children to be able to sleep. There were also food crumbs and other debris under the mattresses in the bunk section. The carpet in the master bedroom was filthy, as were the curtains. I don’t believe the floor had been mopped for several weeks since our bare feet would get filthy merely walking from one room to the next. Based on this, I will never again rent Unit 505. I also may not rent at the Gulf Dunes again, since the cleaning service appeared to handle all the units in the building. "
May 13, 2017 - Chris and Mary S., Owens Cross Roads, AL



"A great place to stay!!
We loved at stay here! It was right on the beach with an amazing view. I could wave down to my family from the balcony to the umbrellas! Which I loved because we took a 7 week old so one of us had to spend some time in the condo with her. :) it was very clean and the staff was fabulous. Our internet wasn't working when we got there we called down to the front desk and they were up to fix it within 10 minutes. The movie rentals and dolphin tour were a great addition to have for the stay! Overall we were very pleased with our stay!! "
Apr 16, 2017 - Mindy S., Frankfort, KY



"Fabulous Ft. Walton
Our vacation experience in Florida was excellent!!! The condo was nice and clean,freshly painted and we thoroughly enjoyed our week ..have been to Gulf Dunes several times and will return.. ??"

"Family Vacation
It was a very pleasurable stay. Facilities were clean and stafford was very nice. "
Jun 17, 2016 - Katy G., Evansville, IN



"FWB GD 505
Awesome vacation! Loved the condo- comfy beds and good use of space. Brooks and Shorey were very accommodating and provided us with a welcome bag and free activities (cruises, snorkeling, etc.) that really made the stay amazing! Plus...the beaches are so clean and it was fantastic that we got two chairs and an umbrella each day for our stay. LOVED FWB!"
Apr 13, 2016 - Deanna C., Richardson, TX



"Very nice condo
The condo was nice and well furnished. It was nice and clean in the usual places but it could use some attention behind doors and corners. A few too many dust bunnies. The air freshener in the condo, lobby and elevator was pretty strong. I would say in the condo again.





"

"Beach front condo
I was pleasantly surprised with our stay, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I didn't know what to expect by renting site unseen but, hopefuuly will be returning next year."
Nov 20, 2015 - JoNell W., Louisville, KY



"Came for a Beach Wedding
We stayed on the 5th floor and the view was great. We spent a lot of time on the balcony. It felt very isolated, private and peaceful. The beautiful view of the Gulf waters was very enjoyable. Just what we were looking for. The unit was very clean and user friendly, and I loved the layout. The freely provided umbrella and chairs on the beach was an added plus, so we didn't have to carry ours. We did not get to use the free DVD's, but would if we stayed longer."
Sep 01, 2015 - Billie M., WEST MONROE, Louisiana



"Great getaway!
We had a great time at Gulf Dunes 505. Overall the room was good, but there were a few things that I wasn't totally pleased with. The dead bolt on the front door doesn't work so you couldn't dead bolt yourself in. Also the sliding door to the balcony is so hard to open and close that you had to use both hands and put all of your weight into it. The room was clean except for some fairly big stains on the bedroom curtains."
Jul 20, 2015 - Ryan B., Bridgeport, AL



"Best Vacation in a Long Time
Location can't be beat! Quiet room and easy access to grocery store and restaurants. Beach was clean and only access for guests at the condo. Was not crowded like other beaches. Had a volleyball net on the beach with chairs and umbrellas. Grill downstairs. Will definitely come back. Only thing I would change is the skillet. It is wobbly and doesn't cook the food evenly and there is only 1 large one which made it hard to cook bacon and eggs at the same time. "
Jul 13, 2015 - Sabrina P., Waxahachie, TX



"Loved it!! Would stay here again!
We loved this condo!! It was perfect for our family! I wish the wifi worked better in back in the bedroom but everything else was PERFECT!!"
Jul 09, 2015 - , Broken Bow, OK



"Great family getaway!
We recently stayed at Gulf Dunes for a 4 night vacation. From the very beginning we were impressed by the service and quality of the staff and property. We easily booked online and when we arrived early, our room was made available early. We loved the located in walkable vicinity of the boardwalk, but far enough away to be very quiet and peaceful. The condo was beautifully decorated and fully stocked. When we had an issue with the TV the mainenance team quickly addressed it. The property was clean and quiet. We greatly appreciated that the beach was only steps away from the condo. The beach chair service is what made our trip extra relaxing as we were traveling with an infant. We are looking forward to returning next year!"
Jun 05, 2015 - , Tucker, GA



"Love Ft. Walton Beach??
Lovely condo, beautiful ocean view, awesome! Mary Ann was helpful in all aspects, as was the the staff. The unit was clean and inviting , the only concern was the curtains in the bedroom, could have been cleaned, they where stained"
May 26, 2015 - , Louisville, KY



"Disappointed in GD 505
This unit needs updating with new patio furniture and door. The patio door is extremely difficult to open and close. The curtains in the master bedroom were dirty and there were only four pillows, the pull out sofa feels like you are sleeping on springs. Lack of utensils in the kitchen but plenty of ironing boards! Choose another unit. Sorry I selected this unit."
May 20, 2015 - Cheryl W., Coppell, Tx



"we always book with Brook/Shorey
very nice we have been coming down for about 14 years know, enjoy our stays very much."

"Great Family Vacation
Condo rental was a smooth enjoyable experience. Great location, property was clean and comfortable. Favorite restuarant was Boschamps! Enjoyed the Gulfarium and the wonderful gulf shore everyday!"
Apr 04, 2015 - Dawn L., Hortonville, WI



"Our vacation
Marianne at the front desk was amazing!!! She was so helpful with any questions we had. Her recommendations were great. The unit we stayed in needed painted and the furniture should be replaced!! The location is great and so was the view!!"
Nov 03, 2014 - Ann E., Euharlee, GA



"Sunshine & Waves
The condo was in a great location. Most liked were: location, clean, comfortable, kitchen well equipped and loved the balcony. Really enjoyed the amenities that were included. On the down side, there were a few small things mainly the balcony furniture could use updating. I would recommend to family or friend. Enjoyed the Destin Snorkel & Shelling, the Harbor Walk and in general the whole area. "

"Okoloosa Island Review
My husband and I had a great experience at the Gulf Dunes beachfront condo. The location was perfect, a quick walk to the beach, friendly staff, beautiful beach, white sand, we would definitely return. "
Sep 18, 2014 - , Houston, TX



"Excellent Condo and amenities
My wife & I recently stayed in this condo and were pleased with the property! We enjoyed having daily beach service provided, free movie rental as well as tickets to the Sea Blaster. The condo is spacious & well maintained. The only suggestion would be to update the curtains in the bedroom as they are stained and to replace the sofa. Overall the condo was comfortable and provided a perfect location for our vacation. We can't wait to return to this property in the future!!!"
Jun 10, 2014 - Chris J., Collierville, TN



"Update Lock
Stayed at this property many times and love it! Not so happy with this particular condo. The bed was very uncomfortable and there is only a lock on the door knob that requires an actual "key". All other units have dead bolts with key pads. Other than that had a great stay but will be sure to avoid this unit in the future. "
May 24, 2014 - Debra B., Metairie, LA



"Nice Overall
The unit was nice and pretty clean overall.The bedroom drapes had stains on them or it would have looked cleaner.Maybe I'm too picky.Overall,a nice place to stay."
Apr 24, 2014 - , Chestnut Mtn., Georgia



"Disappointed
I have stayed at Gulf Dunes many times over the years and have never written a review--until now. This unit (505) is not up to Gulf Dunes needs attention from the front door to the balcony. The front door has no dead bolt lock. Almost all of the furniture looks like it came from someones yard sale. The balcony furniture came from the same yard sale. There was no coffee table. The sofa cushions were so weak it seemed almost like sitting on the floor. The garbage container sits out in the open, with no cover.I could say more but I will only say that I will be back to Gulf Dunes in the future but not to Unit 505."
Feb 23, 2014 - Jim A., Tupelo, MS



"Great Vacation
My experience with Brooks and Shorey was wonderful. The lady from England was most helpful when making my reservation. The on site staff of Brooks and Storey were wonderful also. Thank you for the welcome bag of organic chap stick, clippie, frisby and the dolphin cruise. we had a wonderful time."

"Dolpin Vacation
We loved our vacation at the Gulf Dunes
The unit was very nice and the staff were great
We have stayed here five or six times and will again
We saw dolpines from our unit every day"
Oct 07, 2013 - Bonnie W., Madison, WI



"Excellent location on Fort Walton Beach
The property was excellently located with a very good view of the sea and beach. The unit was well equipped with all the necessary gadgets, towels, etc. It was very clean and maintained well. The only complaint I have is that the furniture was very worn, the couches did not provide good support and the mattress was not very comfortable. The processing in was easy and the concierge was very helpful. We arrived and were in and on the beach in minutes!"
Sep 24, 2013 - , Garden Ridge, TX



"Perfect Location, Poor Ocean
Room was nice and we had plenty room for a family of 4. The sand at the beach is by far the best we have ever seen. The only bad thing about the trip was the poor visibility of the water, maybe it was because we went in late July, but the seaweed was terrible in the ocean, not enjoyable at all. We had a snorkeling trip scheduled thru Destin Snorkel but they actually called us to let us know we would not enjoy the cruise because of poor water visibility. If we never go back it wont be because of the Gulf Dunes Resort it will be because of the Gulf of Mexico."

"Gulf Dunes- Brooke & Shorey Resorts
I thought the vacation rental was great! We loved the simple decorations. It was nice and clean and in good condition. The view from the balcony was beautiful. The only probably we had was getting the balcony door to open and close, it was quite heavy and would get stuck. Other than that we always love staying with Brooke and Shorey Resorts! We love the Gulf Dunes as well!"

"Great time again, thanks to Brooks and Shorey!
We have been renting through Brooks and Shorey for years and will continue to do so. Gulf Dunes is our condo of choice because of the rental company being on location. See you next time!"

"Wonderful
We made last minute reservations to escape the snow of Illinois for a few days. We use Brooks & Shorey every time we get a chance. We know we will find a great place to relax. My only complaints were that we were not there long enough and we didn't know that returning guests could get a discount. The nice lady at the front desk told us and we will get it next time!"

"Gulf Dunes Vacation
Our experience was great. The staff (especially Maryanne) were all very helpful and professional. We'll be back."

"CHRISTMAS VACATION
Arrived the day after Christmas. The condo was very nice and clean. Everything was provided in the kitchen that we needed. The grounds were clean and nice. The weather was no warmer than the low 50s while we were there. Disappointed with that though nothing that could be done. There wasn't much to do because of that. Would have liked some sort of tour available with the rental like what is offered during the warmer months that is weather friendly. Loved that it was right on the beach and could listen to the waves if we left our door open but wasn't warm enough for that much. I would recommend it but would never go in the winter time ever again."

"FWB stay Oct. 2012
We have stayed at this property many times and in many different units. The unit was adequate but is in need of some updating. We love the location because it is close to many different things. Love the beach and the water. The office people are always friendly and helpful when you need it. I would stay at Gulf Dunes again but most likely in a different unit."

"Needs some updating
The location of Gulf Dunes 505 is perfect. It's right by the elevator, but surprising, no noise from the elevator. The view was amazing, we could see dolphins from our patio. The furniture in the livingroom is very uncomfortable and in bad shape. (do not consider the pullout bed an option for sleeping on, it's all springs, very uncomfortable) The KS bed however is quite comfortable (which is more important!) As someone else stated, there is rust on the fridge and very stained bedroom curtains. There were some spiderwebs on the ceiling, and the patio door was very hard to open/close. Everything else was great, good shower, clean bathrooms,working dishwasher, garburator, stove, fridge, W/D, all in great working order. Towel bars in bathrooms would be nice - there was nowhere to hang towels to dry, so we hung them over doors.

If staying with only 2 ppl in a KS bed, it's a great condo. We look forward to coming to the Gulf Dunes again. Front desk staff and daily cleaning staff in the building are very professional and kind. "

"Last Minute Vacation
Our family literally made reservations a day before checking in, and we were surprised at how quickly the staff and management company were able to accept us so hastily. The view was great, and this was the perfect place for a family environment to stay! "

"Love the area
I really loved the area! The condo was ok. The curtains in the bedroom were stained and dirty, the furniture in the living room had about had it. It did the trick for the week, but I have stayed in much nicer places."

"Great Vacation! Great Ameniites

"Great location
All in all this is a very nice place to stay. We enjoyed the view, and complimentary beach service very much. The condo was clean. The kitchen was well stocked and found we had everything we needed where as in the past at other condos we did have to purchase a couple things. We did have an issue with the wifi and was never really helped but it cleared up on its own on the third day. I believe they should install a night lock or dead bolt of some sort I did not like not having a secure feeling during the stay. Also they need to have a in room safe. "

It was just like the pictures and very clean. We had a wonderful time!"

"Gulf Dunes 505
We had an excellent stay at Gulf Dunes. I feel like the room we were in hadn't been kept up very well with rust on the side of the refrigerator and stains on the curtains in the bedroom. Also there was no deadbolt on the door nor did the door latch tight, appeared it may have been broken into at some point. There was also a broken lamp in the living room. These are all jsut minor details in the room. The service was excellent and view was amazing. This is the third time we have stayed with Brooks and Shorey, they were professional as always. We will stay with them again, just probably in a different facility."

My stay was great"

"Good stay at Gulf Dunes
Overall, the property and condo was very nice. The condo had everything you would need for a stay there and more. Next time, we may consider another condo, just for the ability to spread out on the beach a bit more. We felt a little hindered with the lifeguard tower on one side and then a endless row of umbrellas in front of the condo. Gulf Dunes has a great view, 2 nice pools and our condo was clean, nicely decorated, and uncluttered."

"Unhappy Visit
Furniture (Couch/Love Seat) was worn out,very incomfortable and dirty. Had to put a sheet over it before sitting on them. On two separate days, someone was drilling above our room that was extremely too loud and bothersome. Did not understand doing construction work this time of year."

"Gulf Dunes 505
We were very happy with the location. The room was not as clean as they try to say there cleaning is. When we got there they did not allow early check in, When we finally got to our room the bedroom TV was broke, notified them right them. They did not fix it until 6 days later. Which was the night before we were leaving. Was not very happy with the fact they couldnt get to it any sooner. The view is great and the room is good. They tell you in there check in letter not to put the air under 75 which i didnt like. Im on vacation I want to be comfortable. But I might stay there again i am not sure. But other than those issues it was great"

"
The absolutely only complain I would have is that the property pools are entirely too small. As an avid pool person, I was very disappointed with that. Additionally, children were using the pools a great deal of the time without parental supervision and throwing objects from one side of the pool to the other. It was impossible to enjoy being in the pool with that going on. I was hit in the neck by a ball they were using one time and it was not pleasant at all. Spending time in the pool is usually a big part of my vacation and it was just not worth it. Next time, I will be sure to ask about pools specifically. Other than that, we had a nice time. The property management was very nice to us as well."

"Brooks and Shorey Review in July
From the booking process with Tess to the overall detail included in the welcome package(where wifi is located), to the cleanliness and the required items needed in a Condo 505,105 and 407 this was a horrible experience. The only highlight of the trip was the service provided by AJ from Brooks and Shorey as she was a kind person to work with. "
