"Beach Stay - September 2018
Stayed in this condo 3 nights. We were very happy with the location. The building as a whole was nice, however, the condo needs a little TLC. It's an older condo with thrift store furniture and kitchen utensils. The carpet in the bedrooms was past its prime. The cable had very limited channels. The furniture on the balcony was very nice. We made do for our stay but would not stay in this particular condo again. It was very nice to have the beach chairs/umbrella and covered parking included in our stay. I will continue to use Brooks and Shorey Resorts for vacation rentals."
Dec 31, 2018 - , Abita Springs, Louisiana

Loved the location - great view of the beach and with small children this allowed us to be low to the ground and see the beach after they went to sleep. Very conducive to children, with small child beds in the one room. My boys loved it! The rooftop pool was also amazing with children since they were able to swim while my husband and I enjoyed the view of the gulf. Kitchen was well stocked, bed was not the most comfortable but everything else was excellent and we plan to stay again even with the short list of negatives. "

This was by far the best vacation we have ever had!! Very peaceful and beautiful! "

"Relaxing beach trip!
Our rental unit was great! It’s an older unit in a small building (only 15 total units).The unit was neat and clean upon arrival. One benefit of this unit is you get 2 chairs and an umbrella set up daily at the beach for no additional charge. We used this service 2 days while we were there. The section of the beach wasn’t as crowded as the areas in front of the big high rise condos and hotels. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to anyone! "

"Wonderful place for a family vacation!
We had a wonderful time staying right on the beach in the second floor condo! It had everything we needed. There were 7 of us and it never felt like there were 7 of us staying there. Plenty of room, very clean and comfortable. It was a keyless entry which was great for coming and going and not having to worry about losing keys. We were 8 miles from Destin so we were out of the touristy area. Beach was amazingly clean and beautiful white sand! We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else!"

"Gulfside 2017 by Mosley Family
#1: Overall rating of the stay was a 5 (very satisfied)
#2: Property general condition: 4 (satisfied)
#3: Property location was a 5 (very satisfied)
#4: Property management was a 5 (very satisfied).

We all loved the pool location and the beach view and distance. I would conduct an inspection routinely of the room. My kids stated that sand particles were in their bed apron arrival. We loved process the process of booking etc. I used your app for departure. I would recommend some minor painting and carpet shampooed. Will stay again, Thanks for everything "

"Okaloosa Island Vacation 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed the balcony and view of the beach from it. The condo itself was very nice and large enough to accommodate all 7 of us. Would like to stay here again. Helpful that washer and dryer in the condo."
Jul 18, 2018 - Beverley D M., Nashville, Arkansas

"On the water!
Unit #203 is a great location, the overall building is nice and quiet. We took our grandbabies for a few days so they could be in the beach on pool - this place was great for that. It does need updating, the wall finishings are dated, the bathroom fixtures need updating, the salt water has certainly made it's mark on the space, but in general - it was clean and well stocked. While we didn't use the pots and pans, there were plenty and the utensils were also nice... We have been to other places and it was a hodge podge of stuff, this was better than that. Overall - very satisfied."
Jul 07, 2018 - , Thompsons Station, TN

"Very pleased nice condo for 3 adults and 1 toddler
We were overall very please with our stay and location. Only con is the beds were really uncomfortable ( like sleeping on springs) and the ax didn't circulate well to the master bedroom. But overall very nice place. "
Jun 14, 2018 - Amelia C., Osage, OK

"Great Condo unit
The condo was clean and tidy. We had no issues with the place. We had a very enjoyable stay."

"Fun fam trip
We loved our time there! Plan on booking our next trip there. "
Oct 23, 2017 - Jeff B., Tuscaloosa, AL

This Condo is great. It's in a wonderful location with an awesome view of the Gulf. We watched dolphins every morning from the balcony! The only problem we had was the hurricane blew in some rain in the back sliding door leading to the balcony and the carpet got wet. I emailed the office and never heard back from them about anything. The carpet started smelling a little but not enough for us to complain and raise a ruckus. Overall it was a wonderful stay! Everything was neat and tidy and clean upon arrival. I have already looked into staying in this unit again next year for the same time but it's booked up already. I will definitely come back to this one again. "
Oct 17, 2017 - Jessica L., Huron, Tennessee

"Condo 203
Great location, Great beach. The condo is in need of some sprucing up. The carpet has a lot stains. We would love to stay here again but would like to see some up keep on the property. "
Oct 09, 2017 - , Franklin, NC

"Great Getaway
Perfect...great location...everything about it contributed to restful relaxing get-away. View was beautiful as well as the excess to beach. Rooftop pool a great view. Parking tight but doable. We will be back!"
Aug 25, 2017 - Keith M., Weaver, Alabama

"Loved my stay
Very enjoyable. The view was perfect and the beach very quiet and clean. "

"Gulf side 203
Very clean condo. Less units offers a little more privacy and slower pace. Would stay here again"
Aug 30, 2016 - Bernie S., Springfield, IL

"Wonderful View
We only had a short time away but always love the Destin/Ft. Walton area's! This condo was conveniently located on Okaloosa Island with easy access to whatever you're interested in doing/seeing. The management company noted that there's no guarantee of getting into the condo at the 4:00 PM time. This is true in our case... Unfortunately it was 5:00 PM CST before we received the call that it was cleaned and ready to enter. We were disappointed mostly because in the last 15 years of renting via VRBO, we've never had a delay and generally able to enter early.

The condo was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Personally, I think the carpet should be replaced with tile (or something that doesn't hold stains and easily cleanable between guests). The furniture outside is a bit tired and stained as well. But served it's purpose.

The staff was friendly and well organized when we went to their office to check in. Probably wouldn't recommend this particular condo to a friend mostly because of the cost vs overall condition. "
Jul 29, 2016 - Diana S., Lexington, KY

"Overall Good Place
Overall we had a great stay. The location is perfect, and the management company is really easy to work with. The unit itself is outdated, and is showing it's age. There were some things like mold in the bathroom and a strong odor coming from the closet. For the price we thought these things would not be present. The beach is right out the door, and you can't beat that. "
Jan 05, 2016 - , St Peters, MO

"Plenty of room- look updated but entire building not maintained
The people at check in were outstanding. The unit itself was very roomy, as the building was older. However with older, you will get some outdated decor (but that can be overlookded as long as it is clean). The carpet should either need to be taken up-as it understandable that stains will appear with spills and the like. However, the FEEL of the carpet was as if it had been steam cleaned with a "not so clean" machine, as residue was present on the carpet. Noting a tile job couldn't fix. The seals where grout is and toe molding needs to be maintained as well as barely-repaired nicks in the wall where sheetrock mud was swiped across the wallpaper (an attempt was made, but not followed through). There were also cracks in the bathroom mirrors and mold present on outdoor furniture cushions. A moldy odor was present on the indoor sofas. The pool area: water was clear and clean, the tile needed a good scrub (once a week is a good suggestion) and the moss/mold growing inbetween the wall and the groud needs to be maintained once a week as well. You get a lot of value for the room as far as the unit goes. Location is spectacular as the views are. I can't say I was too disappoited because I loved the roominess but I am not too good to stay at a place that isn't perfect. "
Sep 15, 2015 - Amy D., Acworth, GA

"Excellent Vacation!!!!!
Wonderful views, spectacular beaches, pool on roof is by far the best feature. Thanks so much and we'll see you next year!!!"
Sep 01, 2015 - Tommy H., Meridian, MS

"Nice & Clean
Aug 25, 2015 - MARK H., Decatur, al

"Oldie but goody
This property is showing some age, but for us, it was worth the sacrifice of a plush state-of-the art facility for a small development and non-crowded beach. We will definitely stay at Gulfside again. Brooks and Shorey was easy to work with and was also one of the few rental agencies who don't require a Saturday to Saturday check-in. We simply couldn't stay seven whole nights, which left most condos off the table for us. "
Jul 29, 2015 - , Breaux Bridge, LA

A nice, quiet condo location right on the powder white beach of Okaloosa Island. It was clean and neat and comfortable. Had all the amenities necessary. Great rooftop pool and our unit came with umbrella and comfortable canvas beach chairs already set up on the beach. The owners of several units were friendly and gave us advice on new restaurants. Would definitely stay again! "

"As nice as advertised!
Our group of 7,which included 3 children, had a wonderful week of sun and fun in this unit. It was clean and comfortable. I especially appreciated the generous living area. It would be nice to have two more chairs for the dining table so we could all sit down together. Could do without having to check in at office though."
Apr 13, 2015 - , Waterford, WI

"Right on the beach, great location!
The condo is right on beach and has great view. The condo accommodated our family of seven nicely. I did wish we could all fit a dinner table together though.
I would recommend to others. There were just a few negatives, the pool was freezing and our kitchen lacked some basic cooking items that would have helped and the wifi was not very consistent.
Apr 08, 2015 - , Greenwood, IN

"Awesome accommodations & location
We have been going to this condo for over 10 years & to Fort Walton Beach for over 20 years. I can't say enough good things about our time spent there. Wonderful vacation location with shops & good restaurants nearby. But the white sand & emerald water is the real reason I love going there. "
Sep 25, 2014 - Cynthia D., Avery Island, LA

"Beautiful Weather but Condo Not!!!!
Upon arrival of the Unit 203, when you first walk in its very welcoming until you get to the living room and the carpets are filthy as well as the couch and loveseat. Loved our view from the balcony but patio furniture was soiled. We weren't very happy about cats getting on our vehicles "3 Cats".. This unit needs some serious updating.. Loved the Gulfside Condo's but will not stay in this Unit again."
Sep 11, 2014 - John B., Ringgold, GEORGIA

"Great Place to Stay!
The view was spectacular! The room was clean and very spacious. The only thing was the light outside the master bedroom window that was bright at night, but with the curtain pulled down, it blocked out most of the light. We enjoyed watching the dolphins outside on our patio. "
Aug 25, 2014 - Jim P., Hendersonville, NC

"Family friendly-Beautiful views
Gulfside 203 is as always the best place for my family vacation. We have 7 people that enjoy every year we've been for the past 3 years. Beautiful views, semi-private pool and a newly redesigned room."
Aug 02, 2014 - Timothy B., Loganviille, Georgia

"Nice, quiet condo
We were very pleased with our stay at the Gulfside. We had an excellent view and wonderful weather while we were there. "
Jul 28, 2014 - April H., New Boston, Tx

"Vacation disappointment
When we got to our room upon entering the first thing at our entrance door was dried blood ALL over the doorway entrance. It looked like someone got murderd, not a pleasant site. Our room was somewhat clean, but seeing dead spiders and etc. that were not vacuumed up was uncalled for. Blinds were in terrible condition. Then from what I gathered the old man and old women who took care of the property were crabby and very unpleasant. Plus they have 3 black cats that climbed all over my vehicle. Definitely not happy about that. The halls were filthy with dead bugs and dirt that hadn't been cleaned for ever. I was very unhappy with this stay and I WILL NOT return there again. You wanted my opinion, hope you satisfied with it."

Had a great time! Great location and property!"

"Always a Fan
I've stayed at this property at leaset 5 times now and I've used Brooks and Shorey for the last 10 years. The thing that keeps me coming back to Gulf Side is the roof top pool! It has a breath taking view of the beach and watching the sunset is just spectacular. Will never stay anywhere else!!! "
Jun 18, 2014 - Misty P., Zachary, LA

"Same Time Next Year - Love This Unit
This is our second stay in this unit, as it was too late to book it when we did our Destin trip last year (stayed in another Brooks and Shorey unit instead). We wanted to come back to this unit because of its spacious floorplan, due to it being a corner unit. The porch quickly became a favorite gathering spot for our family. Overall, the unit is quite comfortable and we are already looking forward to returning next year for our family beach trip."

"great vacation
Loved unit 203 it was very clean and organized.The maintance gentleman that worked in the building was so friendly and helpful. I would most defintly stay at gulside again loved the location. Wonderful vacation would use Brooks and Shorey again great people and the best prices. "
May 18, 2014 - Janet W., Yuma, TN

"Sister's first Floridian panhandle beaches visit
Please alert Brooks and Shorey that this unit's energy efficiency would greatly benefit by weatherstripping the entry door and its threshhold. Also my city is NASSAU BAY, TX."

"Gulfside 203
I was disapointed in the condition of the rental unit. This is our 3rd time staying at Gulfside but the first in this unit. The furniture needed repair, tears in footstool and patio furniture. Was very uncomfortable because it was worn out. One eye on the stove was out and the oven handle was missing a screw. The blender did not work as well as the garbage disposal. These were minor issues as far as our stay was concerned. We love the location and amenities offered at Gulfside but will not stay in this unit again."
Sep 17, 2013 - Angelia H., Columbus, GA

"Repeat customer
This was our second time and just like the first time,it was flawless. From the on line reservation to check out,everything worked like a charm. We were running a little late due to traffic jam and I called ahead to let them know and when we got to the office they were still there and took us less than 2 minutes to check in. Everything was clean and ready and we enjoyed our stay very much. We are going back again and again."
Sep 05, 2013 - Anthony P., Cordova, TN

"My only thoughts
Loved this location very much - enjoyed the beach not being packed. A few thoughts/suggestions - clean floors in pool bathroom on a much better schedule didn't seem they had been cleaned/mopped in a long time. Find a way to put a couple of umbrellas/covers in pool area - loved the pool but had to wait til evening time due to sun ( would of gone much more since beach was covered in seaweed the entire time) - staff to communicate better as far a check in - we arrived in town at 8am ( knowing our check in was at 4) but staff knew we were waiting as we spoke many times and when 4 arrived they then informed us that no one had even checked out the place even though we had been checking in ---- but we will be back next year and in same room if possible loved everything about it --- thanks so much"

"Treated poorly at Check in
This was my brother's families first visit to Florida. When they were checked in by Alicia, they were treated very rude and condescending.
I have stayed here a lot and recomended gulfside to them. I was very surprised to hear they were treated this way, because I spoke very highly of my previous stays.
This was definately a bad first impression for their family.
I will not be recomending this location again.

"so So condo
Great view and convienent but not up to par on condition of the unit. No light bulbs in all light fixtures, kitchen needed some cleaner dishes, and a roach in the bedroom, shower curtains were dirty. I would rent from this company again but would want a newer condo since the prices are the same for newer ones. "
Aug 21, 2013 - Therese B., Petal, MS

"Gulfside 203
The condo needs updated.
The master bathroom shower was very small and the hot water ran out within 5 min.
Our sleeping at night was rough. You can hear everything going on outside in the master bedroom. The walls are very thin.
The pool on top of the building was a cool location but was not heated so we couldn't really enjoy it.
The best part was the location and view. That was great.

Had a great time, love the rooftop pool! The front door bottom seal is shredded. No lock on patio slider. Hallway ceiling looks like past unfixed water damage. Carpets need cleaning in several rooms. These are small repairs that would make a big impact on health and safety."

"Profits before Comfort
Brooks and Shorey is very committed to making sure the $300 per night they charge is total profit. It's $10 if you don't take out all the trash, $10 if you don't load all the dishes in the dishwasher, $35 for being locked out, $300 damage deposit if they don't figure out some other way to charge. On the other hand, there was no soap in the bathrooms, only one towel per bathroom, no paper towels or kleenex. And most of all there was no air conditioning. A maintenance man came out to turn the furnace on, which did not unfreeze the unit, and that was it. It must have been 100 degrees at night. Not a good place to put your family when they come for a holiday/birthday celebration."

We were very very pleased with the condo, wonderful view, close to the elevator and parking. The ONLY issue I questioned was the carts available to help take things up - but we managed. Wonderful weekend, we didn't want to leave. We're ALWAYS pleased when we book through Brooks & Shorey!"
