"Alcorn party
Our stay was fantastic can't wait to come again , very clean had everything we needed,close to restaurants great location, we would recommend it to everyone !!"
Sep 21, 2018 - Sherry A., Hamilton, OH

The little things matter. The crisp clean white sheets and the new shower curtain liner!!!!! That was wonderful."

"Beautiful place to spend your vacation!
7 women stayed in this condo and we had the time of our lives! We had everything we needed and when we had a few minor issues,we had quick responses and the.customer service is awesome! It didn't bother us but the room is directly above the pool and can be a little noisy at times. Views are amazing,the beach is just steps away and compared to other beaches we visited, it's much less busy!"

"Beach stay
Overall, it was good. The TV in the master bedroom was not connected. Also, no DVD player in the room. "
Jun 28, 2018 - , Loranger, LA

"Family Vacation
We enjoyed the location and the ease of checking in and out. Perfect for our family. "
Jun 24, 2018 - , ARGYLE, TX

"Fun family stay!
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful, well-kept condo that fit our group of 7 well. All was as expected and they were very accommodating - even with our unexpected very late arrival and worked with us for a later checkout. Much appreciated. There isn't much of an ocean view being on the lowest level and occasional pool noise and car horns from the garage being right above both, but nothing that ruined our stay. The only other bummer is that the master bedroom bed was very firm as other people mentioned. Not what I am used to, however some prefer that. Overall stay was wonderful and we would surely book thru them again!"
Jun 23, 2018 - , Webb City, MO

This condo met the needs of our family of 7 perfectly. The golf was a great getaway for my husband and the beach chairs and umbrella were perfect for enjoying the sounds of the ocean and reading. We enjoyed an evening walk to the pier which is less than a mile away and a crazy family game of volleyball. Even though the balcony was directly by the pool, we still had a nice view and a soundproof room."

"Best Vacation
Condo very neat and clean, great location, great view, peaceful atmosphere. Unit better than described Family says best vacation we've had. Loved it."
Apr 09, 2018 - Craig H., Jefferson, GA

"Not the Vacation I was hoping for
I can't give any 5 stars. When we checked in the Kitchen area smelled like someone throw-up. As the days past the smell had gotten worst. On Tuesday I went to the office to let them know about the smell. They scheduled a time for the next day at 10:00 A.M. the maintenance crew showed up exactly at 10 (very impressive). when they pulled out the Fridge the smell intensified. When they pulled out the pan from the bottom there was melted Ice Cream that had spoiled and where the terrible smell came from. The maintenance crew took it outside to wash and bleach the pan. It still took a full day for it to clear out.

Another thing that happened is the ceiling fan light cover fell down and broke to pieces everywhere. That could have ended badly if one of our kids were underneath.

This has nothing to do with the property but the beach had dead fish everywhere.

"Last of the Summer fling
Our condo was perfect for our 3 day weekend. It was perfectly located to all of our activities. It was so nice to have the free golf and skorling not to mention the lounge chairs and umbrella at the beach, which is a must!!"
Sep 21, 2017 - Jeanine M., Newhebron, Ms

"Condo 116
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the gulf dunes. The location was perfect, steps from the beach, and the unit had all the space we needed. I will say that they need to invest in some decent mattresses! They're awful! It felt like we were sleeping on a brick the whole week. Also, i will make sure that when i stay again that it will be a condo thats not on the first floor and definitely not over the pool. That was quite noisy when trying to get my baby to sleep! But overall we had a good stay. "

"Kennedy family beach trip 2017
Ultimate convenience to beach and activities. Very well supplied and beautifully clean. Greatly enjoyed time with kids and family rather than lots of driving thru town. Luckily we had right weekend for pirate festival and it was great fun for all kids."
Jun 10, 2017 - Tracy K., Carthage, TX

"Disappointing and Overpriced
I booked this through VRBO after someone told me they would be stating there as well. I was disappointed on many levels.
1. The price I paid was twice as much as my friend who stayed in the exact same unit.

2. There were no amenities like mini shampoo or conditioner. for almost $1,200.00 for 5 nights I would think they would spoil you a little...... they do not.
3. The beds are all very hard and uncomfortable. It would be nice to sleep comfortably while on vacation.
4. THe VCR had no even though you got free dvd rentals, controlling the vcr was all manual.
5. You get one trash bag and are told to bring your own. You get one, undersized roll of paper towels and no dishwasher soap. They cheaped out for the price. No coffee, not even a welcome size or nothing.
6. You pay a cleaning fee and yet you have to strip the beds and take the trash and put your dishes in the dish washer and clean them with your soap.

I could have stayed at the hotel and had daily cleaning for way less. I do not recommend this place. For this late in the season it was not worth the money."
Oct 06, 2016 - Glen F., Rockwall, TX

we have good time everything is close by Golf Dunes I will recommend my friends.Thank you very much GOLF DUNES!!!!"

"Wonderful place right on the beach!
Condo RIGHT on the beach was a gorgeous place to be with a breathtaking view! My only complaint was that the beds are so uncomfortable. But even then, the trade off is well worth it. "
Aug 22, 2016 - Mary G., Wichita, KS

"Great Family Trip
Great location, Great Condos, couldn't be happier."
Aug 18, 2016 - Jeremy M., Weatherford, TX

"Wonderful Stay!!!
My family had a wonderful stay at Gulf Dunes 116!!! The weather was picture perfect. The condo was clean, comfortable, and stocked with everything we needed for our weeks stay. It was nice to sit on the balcony and watch the kids swim in the evenings. An overall wonderful stay!!!"
Jun 27, 2016 - ROXANE F., ZACHARY, LA

"Gulf Dunes 116
Well equipped and clean. Great balcony furniture. Rental chair man in charge was extremely rude. Time to change companies because their equipment is worn out and ratty."
Oct 21, 2015 - Brent Y., Maryville, TN

"BS means Best Stay at Brooks and Shorey
Excellent for few days away. Super location, good condo floor plan for three separate couples (if one couple are youth)."
Aug 14, 2015 - Warren V., Bowling Green, KY

"GD 116 Fort Walton
I did want to say that when it says sleeps 10, I misunderstood how it slept 10, but the condo worked great for our family. THANKS"
Aug 11, 2015 - Melissa H., Hopkinsville, KY

"Great place with one exception
Great beach service, nice condo, and a clean property.

My only complaint is the bed in the master bedroom (unit 116) was awful. I actually woke up in pain every morning after tossing and turning all night.

Next time I may bring an inflatable mattress with me."
Aug 11, 2015 - Jim M., New Orleans, LA

"Cheer Competition
I stayed in this room with my daughter for a cheer competition. Its close proximity to the convention center and to a Publix was ideal! The room was bright and comfortable and very clean. I cooked in the unit and found the kitchen to be well stocked for preparing a meal. My daughter loved overlooking the pool and beach walkover! I highly recommend this condo."
May 06, 2015 - Rachel M., Alpharetta, GA

"Great Vacation
We had a great time. The condo was beautiful. Loved sitting on the balcony and hearing the ocean. The kids loved being so close to fishing and swimming. It's a great location, with everything close by. I can't wait to come back. Love love loved it!"
Aug 05, 2014 - stacey n., zanesville, Ohio

"Warner Vacation July 2014
The overall experience was awesome! We had a great time! The only negative would be the experience with the chair rental person on Sunday. He was very inflexible, and we had to argue with him to get what we requested. We had a group of 5 condos at the complex and we wanted to sit together, he treated us as if it was an inconvenience. However, on Monday when Michael arrived, he took very good care of us all week!!"
Jul 21, 2014 - Steve W., Mount Juliet, TN

EVERYTHING about this condo rental was top of the line: From the web search, to the rental, to the stay. The staff at Brooks and Shorey, who must have dozens or even hundreds of inquiries a day, was very friendly, helpful, and professional.
When we checked in the lady at the front desk was super sweet and friendly, starting off the stay with a smile.
When we walked in to the room, my wife, my mother-in-law, and I were STUNNED at how clean and spacious the condo was.
We had the new in-laws (my wife's son was getting married/his bride's parents)over for a visit and THEY were very impressed, saying it was much nicer than the condo they had in Destin.
When I posted on Facebook, a friend had actually stayed there and he says he is a repeat customer. Others were very impressed, and they did not even know how INEXPENSIVE it was for us.
A first class place with incredible amenities. The golfing at Shalimar Pointe made my mother-in-law's stay.
I would give this place my top rating EVER."

"First Trip to Florida
My wife and myself had booked another condo, then my aunt and uncle wanted to make their first vacation in Florida as well. Changing our reservations was a breeze. Each time I called the attendants were informative, helpful and courteous. The room pictures didn't leave much to be excited about, as we had a third level condo prior to our change request. Man were we shocked when we got inside. The view was way better than the pictures! And for anyone that would shy away from the first level for the view I would ask you to consider this. Being on the first floor was nice do to the ease of access to the parking lot. We only used the elevators for loading and unloading our luggage, groceries, and that sort of thing. Overlooking the pool was nice too as our kids stayed in there when we weren't at the beach. We did have a couple times while on the balcony that other people at the pool were a little loud, but hey they were on vacation too. Great access to the beach, close to the Okaloosa Pier, just a few minutes from Destin, what else is left to be said?"
Sep 03, 2013 - Shane or Tammy H., Rockfield, KY

"No View
Everything about the condo was great except the view or lack of view, I should say. A higher floor would be the answer, I know nothing can be done about the height of the dunes. I will make sure that I check that next time."
Aug 19, 2013 - , Oneonta, AL

"Cheery and bright
Nice and comfy furniture...was just a little disappointed with the view and porch. Pool too close and loud. Never went on porch b/c it was not private and the being on the 1st floor, the beach was blocked a bit. Decor cute and bright!"
Aug 19, 2013 - , Troy, Il

"Loved this condo!
My friends and I loved our condo! It rained almost the entire time we were on vacation so we spent a lot of time indoors relaxing. The condo was spacious and had a great view. We hope to come back next year!"
Jul 23, 2013 - , Tulsa, OK

"Perfect spot right ON the beach!!!
We had 4 moms and 4 boys stay here for the weekend. The only two things that I could say were drawbacks would be there was only ONE bunk bed in the "room" when I was told there were 2, but we had a pull-out couch so it wasn't too much of an issue, and the view was nice, but we could not see the actual beach from the condo patio. We could see the ocean, and the view was pretty, but we could not see the boys on the beach when they went to the beach. Over-all, it's a fabulous condo and we'd definitely stay again!
I can not forget to mention the rental company! WOW- SUPERB customer service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
May 29, 2013 - Amy B., Newnan, GA

"Fun Time
We had a great time and made lots of memories despite the weather! I really appreciate being able to use the facilities before we checked in. "
Apr 09, 2013 - Sandra C., La Grange, Ky

"I was very pleased
This was my husband's first time at the gulf coast! We had a great time and enjoyed our stay! The ONLY thing we didn't like with being on the first floor, we couldn't see the beach well and the ocean. The room was fabulous, with very bright Happy colors! I don't think we'll get that specific room though again because of the not being able to see. It was very easy to get to and was in a great location! We will definitely be back! There was one more thing but I'm not sure that Gulf Dunes could help it. But the beach part we were at had this 2 1/2 ft shelf that you had to climb down from to get to the flat part of the sand. It wasn't horrible, but you'd thing they could grate it down.?? "
Oct 24, 2012 - Allison S., Lancing, TN

"Good Stay
The property was great overall. Perfect location, nicely appointed, and clean. The only complaint I have is that there were some kind of biting bugs in or on the orange sleeper sofa in the living room. Not sure what kind they were, fleas or bed bugs, but both my companion as well as myself were bitten more than once while sitting on it. I informed management, hopefully they have dealt with the problem."

"gulf dunes
i love this place. this is the second time we have stayed there. i must say the first time was from a individual owner and they did provide alot more like a blender, trash bags, laundry detergant. it does make a difference and next year i will stay in same location but definately use the other condo owner."

" Daigle's 2012 Vacation
Overall, our stay was great. We had a wonderful time. The only improvement I would suggest is that the floors needed to be mopped.
The floors were quite dirty when we arrived. Looked like they had not been cleaned in a while. Other than that, the experience was great.
Will return."

"Vacation Heaven
Our vacation experience was awesome. The Condo was perfect for our needs. It was comfortable and attractive. Our first time in Fort Walton Beach. We will definitely be back and we will stay at Gulf Dunes. The only thing we were missing was a cutting board, hint hint."
Apr 09, 2012 - , Gainsville, GA

"Should Be Cleaner
The unit has been nicely furnished but mgmt. isn't cleaning well enough. Floors were dirty, carpet had odor and needed cleaning, bathrooms weren't cleaned well. As there is no view the cleanliness is paramount. We own unit #412 and have had the same issues with Brooks & Shorey. "

We were in town for my daughters wedding and this room was used for the bride and her court. The colors were perfect for the young women. Located on the beach with a good view of the ocean. We will return."

"Our Gulf Getaway
My newly adopted grandsons from Ghana were in awe. It was their first vacation and first view of the beach/ocean. New life and new places-- Gulf Dunes contributed well."

"Exceptional Service
We had to switch to another building in the middle of our stay due to availability issues. The General Mgr himself came with his truck to load our things and move us since my husband was stuck at the airport with our vehicle. Very Helpful!! Only negative--pool is very small at Gulf Dunes "
Jul 12, 2011 - , Cleveland, TN

"This was our 2nd trip and enjoyed our stay!
We brought family from Oregon this time and was beyond empressed with our room! Very clean and comfortable. We will be back soon!!"

"Gulf Dunes Great Accommodations
This was exactly what we were looking for in the gulf area. It was away from the hustle & bustle of commercialism, but right on the beach. We loved the sugar white beaches. The dining out is much more expensive here than in the South Padre Island area, where we were last winter. Our condo had a few issues upon check-in that the management/housekeeping staff should have caught before guests. The dishwasher didn't drain(a plug had been left in the plumbing from a disposal replacement who knows how long ago)& the thermostat for HVAC was not operational. We found dirty socks underneath the coffee table from previous guests...eewwwoo! The washer was full of kleenex-like lint. More attention to detail by housekeeping could've taken care of all of these problems. Also, we were never given a key for our mailbox because they stated "they didn't have one", and we never received one the whole 2 months stay, even though we asked in the office several times. But, once we got those other things taken care of we were very happy with the unit & the location. The front office could have been more friendly & accommodating. The gal (Eva)that we went through at Brooks & Shorey was very good & showed us properties that fit our desires. She tried to get us a bit of a discount for all the things that weren't operational when we checked in, but her arrogant boss wouldn't. Too bad, since that left a bad impression on us...we shouldn't have to have maintenance people in our place for 3 days right when we got there. I was extremely disappointed in how he blew us off...knowing we were fully moved in & and probably wouldn't want to move to a different unit...just wanted a bit of consideration for the lack of operational appliances and lack of cleaning by the housekeeping staff, which is ultimately part of his oversight with the management company. Eva was a sweetheart, her arrogant boss, not so much. "
