"Ft. Walton Beach Vacation
Got lucky! Bad weather went east and west of us. Condo we rented was almost as described. Nice beds, clean and spacious. Owners may want to consider some upgrades to living room furniture, but it was no big deal to us. The deck furniture should be updated as well. Would also upgrade options for the TV as to available channels Great location, easy access to beach. "
Oct 19, 2018 - Howard Q., Little Rock, AR

"Late August, Early Sept. vacation
I chose this condo because it looked comfortable. The vacation was for my daughter and I. One weekend my grandson, his wife and their 4 children joined us. There was room for all, and my grandson said that even the couch pull out bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and convenient. I would stay in this condo again."

"SD 402
Our second time in this unit. You can see more wear and tear from last year but overall still a good place to stay. The kitchen could use a few measuring cups/spoons and some knives for cutting. Great location on the beach. "
Aug 26, 2018 - , Montgomery, TX

"Paradise Getaway!
We loved our stay at Surf Dwellers Room 402. The condo was very large, the balcony was the length of the whole condo the rooms were very spacious and everything you needed was there in the kitchen. The only negative thing was the master bedroom shower head. The water pressure coming out of the shower head was so soft that it was nearly impossible to get the sand and shampoo out of my grand daughter’s and my hair, much less try to wash my private parts. I think a removeable shower hose or a head with more pressure would have been better. Don’t let the shower head keep you from staying there though. We had an awesome time and we will be back."

"a great place to stay
Enjoyed our stay at the surf dweller room 402, clean and spacious room, with awesome ocean front views. Would definitely recommend it!"

"Wonderful vacation
Stayed for seven days and enjoyed every minute. "

"Great view! Great place!
My family and I had a great time on spring break while renting this condo. Condo was big and had everything we needed. Our favorite part was the balcony! It was huge with an amazing view! It had lots of places to sit and just watch the sunrise. My kids enjoyed the heated pool, however wish the pool was Oceanside! Pool is situated in front of the building versus by the ocean. Check in was really easy and so was check out. Would def stay here again! "
Apr 18, 2018 - Wendy S., Springboro, OH

"Rest and relaxation
Our stay with you was everything we wanted. Close enough to visit many activities, but still secluded when you want to get away from the masses. Perfect!"

"Quick trip
We had a wonderful time "

"Great stay
The condo was clean and well maintained. The pictures are very accurate. There is a lot of space all rooms are nice and large. I would recommend this property highly."

"Trip to Ft. Walton Beach
The condo overall was fine. Good for our short stay."

"olg beach vacation
Very spacious and had every thing that you need I kitchen. Love the balcony furniture.The water was perfect all most every day we where there. Looking forward to 2018 vacation in the same spot."
Sep 27, 2017 - Deann R., Deville, La

"Perfect Getaway
The condo was clean, the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and included a second fridge that was perfect for drinks! You're literally steps to the beach. We enjoyed the free beach service and the proximity to everything. The facility itself (halls, elevator, beachside bathrooms and grounds) were all kept very clean. It's also not a huge complex so the beach wasn't too crowded. The pool is nice but it's in the parking lot which might deter some; we don't use the pool when we come to the beach so it wasn't an issue for us."
Sep 11, 2017 - Danni A., Spring Hill, TN

"Just as the pictures showed
The view from the balcony was great. The pictures were an absolute 100% depiction of the actual condo. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed, including a Keurig. I had asked about this several times but no one could confirm or deny if there was one so we didn't bring our k-cups. Turns out we could have. Not a big deal. Love the extra fridge in the laundry room. Couple of standard maintainence items in the 2 bathrooms but nothing major. Very spacious, decorated nicely. Love the beach service and the fact that the hotel offered paddleboards and such for rent. This condo is right on the beach. Enjoyed that it wasn't right in the middle of major commercial area, but still within a short distance of the pier and shops. The master bed was super comfortable and cozy. The property management company was responsive, available and wonderful to work with. I highly recommend this unit. "

"July Stay
The condo has everything you need and provides a good value for the price. "
Jul 25, 2017 - Bradley S., New Orleans, Louisiana

"Surf Dweller
We enjoyed the surf dweller and the beach. Only downside was getting stuck in the elevator and having to call 911 and having the fire department to get us out. The call button did not summon any response and the surf dweller staff was not helpful. Elevators need an upgrade to improve safety and reliability"
Jul 17, 2017 - Robert M., Houston, TX

"Wonderful Stay
Loved the condo, plenty of space, very comfortable and wonderful patio. Every step was seamless and easy. "
Jul 07, 2017 - Christe E., Hermitage, TN

"Okaloosa 2017
We got stuck in an elevator with emergency call button not working and maintenance was in our Condo without calling us first. Otherwise wonderful trip."

"A lovely trip to Surf Dweller
This was a wonderful place to stay. Our family had a great time."
May 28, 2017 - , Grove City, OH

The view from the large balcony is breathtaking! We really enjoyed being on the beach and listening to the waves at night from the room. Everything was very clean and organized with really nice kitchen! We have a family of 4 and enjoyed having an extra fridge to keep our water and drinks cold. The beach attendants were very helpful and the reserved beach chairs were a really nice touch! There were several maintenance people around and they seemed to keep everything in great working order: the elevators were clean and in good shape, the outdoor showers at the beach and pool were great, and in general the place was very well kept. The pool and tennis court were very fun and relaxing. We enjoyed having the pool on the other side of the building away from the beach because after spending all morning on the beach, it gave us a nice break from the wind. The location is the best: close enough to Ft. Walton and Destin to get groceries, go out to eat, shop, do the tourist stuff, etc.; but far enough away to feel calm and relaxed with less people and traffic. We plan to stay here again! "

"Spring Break 2017
Surf Dweller 402 is a GREAT place on Fort Walton Beach. Close to shops, restaurants, etc. Our only complaint would be the constant construction that was being performed to renovate other units. Seems like the HOA would regulate when those types of projects can be performed, for everybody's enjoyment. Make no mistake, we would recommend this unit to anyone."
Mar 31, 2017 - , Gadsden, AL

"Fort Walton after Christmas stay
The view from the rental was amazing. There were no problems getting into the property and it was very clean and well supplied. The unit was a bit dated in furnishing compared to others that we have stayed in but the view was the main reason for the trip."

Great place. Very spacious!"

"Awesome Condo
We had an awesome stay in Ft. Walton. The condo was fabulous. The location was perfect right on the beach. I can't wait until we can come back. I would recomment Surf Dweller 402 to everyone."

"Surf Dweller Vaca on the Beach!
We has a fantastic time at the Surf Dweller. The unit we rented was very nice. Loved the size of the balcony and it was nice to have the chaise lounge on the balcony as well. Really enjoyed listening to the waves with the slider open in the evening. Wish they provided hair dryers, extra toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags. Also, it wasn't that busy on the beach and we were told there were no more chairs. We did not understand this as we were told that we got 2 chairs and an umbrella with our room. We went back later in the day and asked that a chair set up be done for us, and the attendant was reluctant to do so. "
Sep 11, 2016 - , Mendon, MA

"A Drean Come True!
We had an awesome time at Ft. Walton. The condo was amazing. It was clean, neat, had lots of room, and a very well-stocked kitchen. The balcony was beautiful and when we were not at the beach or pool, we were out there. The furniture on the balcony was very comfortable. It was great to have the beach chairs and umbrella included with our stay. We truly enjoyed everything."

Very nice condo with comfy furniture. Easy check in and out. Highly recommend."

"Better than a hotel
Beautiful space to relax in. Comfortable bed, comfortable balcony with a beautiful view. Would definitely stay here again. "
May 04, 2016 - Angela M., Stillwater, MN

"Nice Condo!!
We really loved the condo, Surf Dweller 402. The only suggestion I would make is that there should be some blankets left. It got cool at night with the rain. The bathroom door in the hall stuck and when you opened it we thought someone had fallen.
The only thing that would have made our vacation better was sunshine and not rain the three days we had there.
I hope this unit will be available next time I decide to come to Fort Walton.
Everyone at Brooks and Shorey were very helpful."
Apr 19, 2016 - Cheryl W., Lexington, KY

"A very good stay
The unit was very clean and comfortable. It has been a long time since we vacationed in Ft. Walton Beach and we have forgotten how beautiful it is on the beach. Traffic in the area for the weekend had a lot to be desired. everybody was so impatient. However the condo 402 at the Surf Dweller made up for all that. All-in-all it was a very good vacation."
Apr 18, 2016 - Larry Z., Sharonville, OH

"Worth the drive
The property had all the amenities that were stated. It was well maintained and centrally located to all activities. I will definitely be back."
Mar 19, 2016 - , Lenexa, KS

Great place to stay. View of ocean and sunrise and sunset incredible. Walked along beach to pier to have breakfast every morning. Sandy white beaches and crystal clear water. Condo was very comfortable and loved the large balcony. Definitely going back to this condo again"
Nov 02, 2015 - Bonnie D., Murphy, NC

"Much needed vacation
This property was in a great location for the beach. Our timing was great since the rush season had ended and we wanted uncrowded conditions. The accommodations needs some general maintenance but was clean and spacious."
Oct 27, 2015 - , Lafayette, LA

"Great place
We loved all the space with the great room and awesome view of the ocean. Location was superb for views and so quiet great fall break with family oh forgot the lovely beach. Lock on screen door would be a great upgrade."

"Surf Dweller 402 review
The condo was beautiful. Had a great experience, I would change the furniture on the patio, some seems a little big and maybe add a small table for 4 to have their meals on."
Oct 06, 2015 - Lori L., Georgetown, Delaware

We had a great time. View was outstanding, comfort of the condo was good, and everything we needed was there for us. Excellent time. No troubles what so ever. And got there about 1 and was able to check in early. "

Excellent rental experience, quick and easy process, rental condo was just as described, fabulous location and fantastic vacation! We can't wait to go back!!"

"Awesome Vacation!!
We had a wonderful time staying in Surf Dweller! With 5 adults and 3 kids, we were very comfortable and had plenty of room! Would definitely recommend Brooks and Shorey to anyone looking for a great place to stay. We will surely be booking again!!"
Aug 04, 2015 - Amber B., Sunset, LA

"A wonderful place to stay at the beach
We couldn't have asked for a better place to view and enjoy the beach. The view of the beach and the beach access were outstanding. An elevator ride to the first floor, out the back entrance and across the ramp and you are on the beach. We received complementary use of a beach umbrella and chairs with our room which made use of the beach even more convenient. When not at the beach we enjoyed the comfort of the unit. It is very livable, as the couches and chairs are comfortable and offer a great view of the TV or the beach. The kitchen is beautiful and functional. There are utensils and dishes to fix and serve any meal you might want to fix for at least 6-8 people. But if you plan to cook, bring your own cleaning supplies. There was no dish detergent of any kind of cleaner to use on the counter tops or stove. There were only two pods for the dishwasher. Bring extra bath towels and personal soap and shampoo. There were only two of us because our guests had to cancel at the last minute and had there been four or more people there we would have definitely been short of towels. Also there is a glass accent table against the wall between the two bed rooms that is easy to run into so watch out for it. I finally placed a magazine on the corner so we would see it and not run into it. The shower in the master bath is very nice and romantic. The drains on all the plumbing were very slow so be patient. None of these minor distractions interfered with our enjoyment. We had friends that stayed at other facilities that weren't nearly as nice and who paid just as much or more than we did so I would highly recommend staying here. "

"Surf Dweller SD 402 - Week Vacation Stay
Our vacation and stay at the Surf Dweller was wonderful. The process to stop and register upon our arrival was friendly and quick. The condo was exactly as the picture. It was clean, roomy, and comfortable. The A/C worked fantastic...stayed nice and cool. The refrigerator ice maker works great. The only complaint I had was that the sheets on all the beds felt like sand paper...they were very rough...but we made do. The shower head stream was a challenge for me and my daughter, we both have a lots of real curly hair, so getting the shampoo and conditioner out took a very long time in the shower. We could not get the head to adjust to a stronger stream. Again, we made do. I would recommend the condo, I would go back...the view from the balcony is breath taking."
Jul 21, 2015 - Belinda P., Harvest, AL

"Lovely condo for ideal beach experience
Having stayed at Surf Dweller for many years, I can highly recommend this unit. It was beautifully, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Our family rented 4 units for a summer reunion, and we all agreed that our Surf Dweller units were perfect for the gathering. Of all that I saw, this one was my favorite!"

"David & Becky Weaver
My family enjoyed are vacation at Surf Dweller(402) very much. The unit was extremely clean. The location was great. When we come back we will stay at a Brooks and Shorey rental unit."

"Great Condo!
The condo was very satisfactory. Plenty of room. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to stay even longer than 7 nights next year. Very quiet surroundings and good family atmosphere. "

"Surf Dweller $402 Nice condo, Messy renovations
The only thing wrong with the condo was that there were no hangers in closets. Other than that, condo very nice and roomy. However, there was MAJOR renovations going on at Surf Dweller and it was a huge problem. Brooks and Shorey should not have rented out any of these condos during this time. One day we had to walk through the weeds and sand on the side of the complex to get to the beach, as the walkway through the complex was being painted. The noise was extremely aggravating as well.

Relaxed and refreshing."

"Ladies retreat
We have 5 ladies, ages 50 to 62, that come to Okaloosa Island every year. This is the 3rd year we have stayed in SD 402. Our main reasons for liking this condo are the large deck with plenty of chairs, comfortable beds, large kitchen and all of the comfortable seating in the living area. We have one lady that has very bad allergies and asthma and she needs to be able to stay cool. In the past we did not have any problems with the a/c, but this year we could not get it any cooler than 72 degrees. Luckily the weather this year was not oppressively hot so she managed ok. Also, the only way to get the toilet in the hall bathroom to flush was to hold the handle down for a long time, and it took awhile to fill back up. This was inconvenient for 5 ladies. We did find notebook paper sticking out from under the couch and children's toys under the chairs and in the corner. Making us think the floors had not been properly cleaned. Overall this is a nice condo and we would return if we could be sure the a/c would keep it cool. "

"Surf Dweller 402
We spent three nights at Surf Dweller in SD402. From the reception at the rental office to the last minute we spent there, it was a wonderful experience. Don't let the exterior of the building fool you. It is certainly one of the plainest on the strip. But inside, it looks exactly like the property photos show it. Two full refridgerators, a complete kitchen with plenty of plates and silverware. Just bring your own sugar. Huge bedrooms, TVs everywhere. I could go on about this place, but suffice it to say, I would certainly return."
Aug 15, 2014 - Michael M., Cincinnati, OH

"Loved SD402!
We really enjoyed our stay at Surf Dweller. We'll definitely stay again and hopefully in $402. Only one issue with there not being a plug in the bathtub for my grandson to take a bath. I managed to plug the drain with a washcloth so no big deal. "
Aug 11, 2014 - Debbie H., Holly Pond, AL

"Surf Dweller 402
The condo was great! It was big enough for a family of 5, it was clean and comfortable, and it was easy access to the beach. Brooks and Shorey were easy to deal with and very accomodating."
Aug 04, 2014 - Kristy B., Hudson, IL

"Great getaway to a nice condo
The condo was nice and clean. We were satisfied with the clean tile floor. Since we have a small baby, we appreciated this alot. House keeping did a good job and I hope they will continue to do so because having a nice clean floor will make us as guests very happy.

The sink in the master bathroom didn't drain well but we managed without too much problem. The cloth dryer produced very weak heat and it must be rusty because it put some brown marks on our clothes. Other than that, everything was good. We had a wonderful time. We will stay here again next year."
Jul 18, 2014 - Linda N., Baton Rouge, LA

"Surf Dweller
The condo was nice it needs some updating,the plugs need to be replaced,and there are way to many unsecured glass tables to have with small children. Other than that it is a great location and the property management company was awesome."

"Wonderful and affordable vacation
We enjoyed our stay at Surf Dweller. The location was wonderful and the large balcony was perfect for everyone to eat breakfast together while watching the porpoises play. My husband was able to fish and the gulf was perfect to swim in that week. Overall, a nice, relaxing vacation. We have already recommended it to several friends."
Feb 22, 2014 - Melissa C., Cantoment, FL

"Our Least Enjoyable Stay at Surf Dweller
We have stayed in quite a few properties at Surf Dweller for over 20 years and this was our least favorite. The glass top tables in this unit are treacherous. I would never stay there with a toddler. The master bathroom has holes in the wall where the towel bar was moved and the holes never repaired. My husband had to rehang the shower doors before we could take a shower because they were totally off track. He said they were never completely installed. The bathroom rugs were dirty. I don't like using a rug to step out of the shower that has been used by many previous guests. The floor in the master bedroom appeared to be swept but not mopped. The light over the table was so dirty that I couldn't see the light bulbs, so I had to clean it because it bothered me. The worst part of our stay was that there is construction going on behind and at the end of the unit and we had to listen to backup alarms and other construction noise from daylight to dark, even out on the beach. The property managers really should inform guests that construction is taking place so close by. Certainly wasn't the peaceful vacation that we expected. I don't think that I will ever use this property again. "

"Hated to leave
I stayed for seven days and nights. The unit was comfortable and had the softest bed I have ever slept in. I wish this unit were available in early February because I would come back for another 7-day stay. So very relaxing. The weather could not have been more pleasant. I am going to be checking out your other rental units to see if there is one nearby the SurfDweller available. I have been staying at the Surf Dweller for the past 15 years and this is the nicest unit I have stayed in. Love it Love it"

"Great Getaway
My husband and I and our 3 children really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very nice, just like the pictures, and the staff at the rental office was great!"

"Very pleasant experience!
Very happy with size of room and cleanliness.The only thing I would change is the glass end tables in living room as the corners are very sharp, if you have small children in your group.Overall a great room and vacation!"

"Our recent stay
We really loved the condo and the location they were great. Very roomy, great view of beach."

"Fun in Destin
Everything great inside condo except could use a new king bed. Bed not sturdy so it shakes whenever someone moves. Double beds in other room was great for 2 boys. Loved having 2 fridges. Big long balcony was great! Keyless entry sure would be handy rather than carrying loose keys around."

"First time staying at Surf Dweller 402
This place is located in perfect location, next to the crystal white beach with beautiful ocean view. It is not crowded and very quite to relax on the beach. The condo is big, nicely lay-out, and fully furnished with everything from beach chairs,ice cooler,china wares,outdoor furnitures....

The beach chair and umbrella were set up and reserved for us daily. The downside was that the cleaning service didn't do a good job of cleaning the condo before we moved in. We had to wear sandals inside the condo because walking on bear feet made our feet to turn black and sticky. The blankets smelled terrible and we had to wash them before use. Additionally, we recommend to replace the sofa because it starts to wear out.

Brooks and Shorey Resorts is an excellent place to do business. They are very professional and informative. Our check-in/out went smoothly,and they allowed us to check in at 12:00."

"Wonderful week
We had a lovely time at the Surf Dweller. Very pleased with the condo, it was nicely appointed and very spacious. Conveniently located, and with a pool and tennis court, which was just what we were looking for, apart from its beachfront location. The weather mid-April was a little too cool for us to use the pool in the end, but we enjoyed the beach. Check-in/out were simple and the little extra perks from B & S were nice - the beach chairs and the movie rentals. Looking forward to visiting again."

"Great Stay at Surf Dweller
Excellent vacation and property. Everything was very nice. Easy check in and friendly staff. The living room couch and extra large chair is getting old and not the most comfortable but other than that everything was very nice. We would definitely stay in this condo again if available."

"Fall Break 2012
Condo was large and conveniently located to restaurants. This was our first time staying in Ft. Walton and we'll be back. "
Nov 01, 2012 - , Kelso, TN

The floors in the condo weren't really clean. There was a bit of dust and lots of hair on the floors. When one of the chairs in the living room was moved a little there was lots of dust and even food underneath. The only other problem was that the pool was in the parking lot and not on the beach."

"could be fantastic
I don't want any problems when I rent, I feel I paid for the site to be operational, If not let me know up front. This is a large unit.
problem with drapes was to me a frustrating issue, and outside light at night coming into in extra bedroom,no curtains only blinds. some of the towels needed washing before use,(dirt stains) brooks and storey GM was help but maint dept not to good, the unit has agreat location and is decorated very well, you have to wake up with the day light, the window shades can't keep the light out. but I would recommend it.

"You need improvement
1. Only an hour to check is not enough time. Check in is no earlier than 4pm (that's what the paperwork said) and the office closes at 5pm.
2. Room was not ready at 4pm as promised, not ready at 5pm, wasn't ready until 6:20pm. After driving all day, my family and I had to find something to do until the cleaning service could clean the room.
3. I reported the following things that were broken once we entered the condo with the expectation that it would be fixed ASAP: the lock on the dishwasher was broken and would not lock. There were instructions in the condo to "jiggle" the washer door until it closed but it would not lock. Therefore we had to deal with water leaking on the floor each time we ran the dishwasher. A broken dinner table chair, floor door seal on master bedroom unglued from the floor, and the curtain slide rod in the master bedroom was broken. Therefore we had sunlight coming in each morning when the sun rose."

"Relaxation all the way
We had a wonderful time at the condo!! We had excursions lined up for the week but couldn't find ourself wanting to leave the beach. John our beach host was awesome. I would recommend SD 402 to anyone. If you cant unwind and relax here then its your own fault! "

"Old friend
The surf dweller is a place that my family has stayed at for several years now. Each year, we are excited to head to the beach. The Surf Dweller 402 is a wonderful unit. Plenty of room and an AMAZING view of the Gulf. This year was a little disappointing, due to the fact that the unit was not clean when we arrived. Being that we pay a cleaning fee for the condo to be cleaned when we leave, I would expect to arrive to find it clean. Very disappointed. There was very little toilet paper on the roll, and not one extra roll in the entire place... imagine the mad dash we made to the grocery store to get more! I told the lady at the Brooks and Shorey office about this when I checked out. She seemed to listen to what I was saying, but maybe not care so much.

We will absolutely stay there again, but next time I will inspect the entire condo before we unpack. If it's not clean next time, I will head back to the office and see what they can do.

"Great week
We enjoyed our stay very much. We took my husbands parents for a much needed vacation. They had not stayed at the beach in many years. We were all very impressed w/ our accommodations. we had a great time. Look forward to renting this unit again!!"

"Disappointed Guest from Tennessee
We enjoyed the vacation location. Second time to the area. We checked in after hours and was very disappointed in the rental. The photos on the web are very deceiving and need to be replaced. We had to sweep/vacuum due to hair in the floor, sliding glass door was open and would not lock properly and there were not any paper towels or dish detergent, broken tiles in some rooms, cover plates were off some outlets, lamps unplugged, kitchen cabinets were worn out and there was a hodge podge of pans and utensils. Broken tiles in front of building and in elevators. This place really needs some work and I would not recommend as a place to stay. "

"Wonderful Condo & Location
Upon arrival the condo was clean and inviting. It had EVERYTHING we needed for our stay and had a view to kill for. The location on the beachfront was excellent as well as the proximity to Restaurants and stores.

"Surf dweller 402
We absolutely loved the property, the only thing I would recommend was considering providing some basic items such as trash bags, paper towels, and dish soap would have been nice to get things started. But the place was amazing and our family truly loved
Aug 18, 2011 - Rebecca R., Flint, TX

"Surf Dweller Stay
The condo was very clean and well-stocked. The pool was very dirty and we could not swim in it. I did report this to Brooks & Shorey. Overall, we love the Surf Dweller. Do you have any newly refurnished condos? If so, we would like to know about them
for next summer. This is about the 10th time we have stayed there."

"Everything was perfect.
The only complaint would be the mix up with the umbrella and chairs. "

"Great Location and Price!
Condo is very spacious and has that "homey" feel. Nice ceramic tile floors and beautiful kitchen. Spacious shower in mstr bedroom. There's always elbow room on the beach, along with chairs and an umbrella! Crab Island is a "must" if you are in the area!"

"Nice trip
I stayed in Surf Dweller 402. The unit was very nice and had a beautiful view. The owners had available everything we needed for our stay. The only thing I would of had different if it were mine would be change the type of lock on main door to a push number lock so it could be changed after guest leave for added safety. Overall this was a great experience, and if I come to this area again I will try to stay in same unit with same rental company. Any questions you can email me ."

"I've stayed in better rooms.
I love the Surf Dweller and have stayed there several times, however I will not stay in 402 again. The bathrooms were locked upon arrival - weird! It didn't appear as clean as other rooms I've stayed in at this building. "

"Relaxing vacation
I stayed at this condo for 6 very relaxing days! The condo was exactly what I expected and very clean. The weather was perfect! My only complaint was one of the employees tried to enter our condo saying he was "checking the keys". He did not identify himself right away like I would expect... when I called the management company I was told that the condo next to ours was having trouble with their door locks and had requested assistance. Apparently the employee was confused about the condo number. Not a big problem but I do not appreciate employees entering the condo without my permission."

"We were very happy with our condo at the Surf Dweller and would repeat a stay such as this next Summer.
We felt the water pressure was very low in our Bathrooms but no other negative comments."

Do not publish my reveiw with name or town attached....I loved Okaloosa Island and was generally very satisfied with everything except the dishwasher not being fixed and the DVD player not working for the children...but being in that nice condo with the view was all I had hoped for in this first rental situation and I thank you very much...I do hope to return....."

"Our Ft. Walton Vacation March 2011
We enjoyed our stay at the Surf Deweller. Our condo was clean, was decorated beautifully, with a well equiped kitchen, was kid friendly and had a spectular veiw of the gulf. The property staff was professional and friendly. Grocery stores and other shopping stores along with local attractions are close to the condo. We would definitfully would visiton this location again and recommend it to others."
