"Ocean Getaway
We were very pleased with this rental. Kitchen very nicely remodeled with all new appliances and countertops with waterfall edge. Ocean view could not have been better!"
Apr 29, 2024 - Kerry K., San Francisco, unknown

"March 2024
The unit was clean and the staff was very helpful. It is located within walking distance of many of our favorite restaurants while having direct beach access and views. My wife and I greatly enjoyed our time there."

"Gulf Dunes 307
Fantastic 2 weeks! Weather was great and our condo was too. Would stay again!!"

"Family vacation
I was very disappointed in unit 307, we have rented at gulf dunes for four years and have always be so pleased. This unit has stained furniture, a smell to it, dirty paint and had no kitchen towels. We will not be renting this condo again."
Oct 31, 2023 - , Oakland, TN

"Yearly beach trip
Gulf Dunes 307 was a very nice clean condo. One concern we did have was the black markings that were on the ceiling mainly in the kitchen area. We weren't sure what it was, mold, grease or something else. The sliding glass door didn't have a handle on the outside. Really wasn't a big deal for us but a family with kids might have issues. Overall, it was a clean comfortable condo we would stay in again."
Aug 28, 2023 - Julie H., Cleves, OH

"Great stay!
We love gulf dunes! The condo had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The view is beautiful! We will be back next year!"

"At least the beach was nice! Pictures can be deceiving.
The unit location was very convenient and easily accessible. The beach service was very helpful although you had to reserve chairs each day as opposed to for the entire stay. The beach was clean unlike other areas within a 10 minute walk from the property.

In the contract we had to sign, the property management company stated that "due to their high standards of cleanliness", the unit may not be ready right at 4PM. I'm not sure I want to find out what they consider a low standard of cleanliness. When we arrived, there was debris on the bed covers and furniture was visibly soiled. Our children insisted on sleeping on the pull-out. When we pulled it out, there were crumbs all over the mattress as if it hadn't been cleaned or used in months. That's also probably how long it had been since the floor was last mopped. After seeing the state of the furniture, we decided it would be best to wear our socks while inside the unit. Within 5 minutes of walking inside the unit, the gray soles of our socks were also visibly soiled. There were dust bunnies clinging to the ceiling in the bedroom like stalactites as well as dust caked to the ceiling fan blades.

That doesn't even begin to speak to the general state of repair in the unit. The popcorn ceiling texture in the bathrooms was beginning to disintegrate with chunks of the texture missing. The shower drain was broken, the plunger was completely gone and we had to use a WalMart stopper to hold water in the tub for our children's baths. Not the end of the world, except for the general state of cleanliness in the unit. The metal ring around the tub drain was also broken. There was also no stopper for the kitchen sink. To wash dishes, we found the largest pot in the unit-which I am certain was made from the same gauge metal as our children's Melissa & Doug pots and pans set.

I really wish I were making this up. We reached out to the property management company the first night about our concerns "

"GREAT location- But could use some updates
Our building/room was in a great location! Right on the beach with beautiful views. It’s a quaint one bedroom with bunks in the hall for the kids. Overall, it met our needs perfectly for the week. However, I do feel it needs some attention. The kitchen/appliances are outdated. Cracks in the walls, popcorn ceiling was peeling in places, the bathroom tub/shower appears to be the original since that building was built and it shows. It would also be helpful if some standards are included- such as dish soap, coffee filters, trash bags, etc. I know it was suggested we bring our own but for the cost of a week’s stay during a peak season, these are amenities that many other places include without expecting renters to provide.

"nice condo
We try to always stay at Gulf Dunes, we have always enjoyed our stays there through the years."
Jun 05, 2023 - DEBRA R., Bristol, TN

"Great location
We love the Gulf Dunes property. With Stewby's right across the street and only a few minutes drive to other restaurants and the local doughnut shops, its the perfect location. Nothing beats the ocean view from the balcony. "
May 04, 2023 - Holly F., Wendell, MN

"Wonderful Experience
Wonderful as always! This is our third trip there and we enjoy the condo and location. "
Feb 26, 2023 - Christ G., Alexandria, LA

"Love Gulf Dunes but not this unit
I've stayed at Gulf Dunes many times but would not stay in this unit again. Floors and countertops were not clean. Cooking was a challenge as the stovetop elements didn't fit properly with the drip pans. This caused them to be tilted and loose. The sofa has definitely seen better days. Don't stay in this unit if you have any knee or back problems! But the perfect weather and the view from the balcony made it a great week. We tried Stewby's across the street because it was convenient. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Will be back to Gulf Dunes but not 307

"Gulf Dunes 307
The condo was nice. A few suggestions I have are the following:
The king bed was uncomfortable. I woke up with a backache every morning. Also, there were no blankets. Just a very thin bedspread. It's not that I like it cold, but I like something to cover up with other than a thin sheet. The floor in the condo was sandy and not very clean, according to the dirt on our socks. Just a suggestion but it would have been nice to have a coffee table in front of the sofa. Also, I suggest they get some rugs for the kitchen and the bathrooms. If to catch some of the sand and water. Something easily washed after each stay. This would be helpful to the guest.

"Great trip
Our condo was awesome. It was so clean and comfortable. The cleaning staff had done a great job and it was ready for us right on time. Our only problem was we could not enjoy our balcony because the neighbors played really loud music and smoked. "
Jun 27, 2022 - , Jonesboro, AR

"Would definitely stay here again!
Pretty decorated 1 bedroom. Nice layout. Great location. "
Mar 16, 2022 - , Capron, IL

"Great Unit!
We had a wonderful experience with Brooks and Shorey with this rental. We have stayed at Gulf Dunes before using another company, but we were very happy to have used Brooks & Shorey for this stay. Helped us with wifi connection issues as soon as we got there! They were very quick to respond. Perfect view! Clean unit! We will be back!"
Nov 15, 2021 - Marilyn G., Seymour, TN

"Beautiful Condo Beautiful Beach
Our condo was beautiful and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and the place was clean. We did encounter **** roaches in the kitchen, but an exterminator came the day after we reported it to take care of them. The advertised free activities that came with our package were all closed due to the time of year that we stayed there. While it wouldn't have changed our decision to stay there, it would have been nice to know this as we may have altered our dates of travel, had we known this. Also, if you are planning to visit the Air Force Museum, it is closed to all but Veterans and Active Duty Military at this time."
Nov 13, 2021 - , Jacksonville, NC

"Gulf Dunes 307
The location is great, on the beach and places to eat within walking distance! The bed is comfortable but the blinds in the bedroom allow a lot of light from the outdoor light to come in which made it hard to sleep, it was so bright I woke up at 2am thinking it was 2pm. Also the shower ceiling had mold on it which was kind of gross and there are not any towel holders by the tub, in the tub or by the sinks which is inconvenient. There is no dish soap in the kitchen so I could not wash any dishes other then to run them all in the dishwasher on the final day. It was still a good trip but these are all things to make note of!"

"Fort Walton Beach - Gulf Dunes
We had a wonderful time during our stay at the Gulf Dunes. The grounds where beautiful and the condi was very clean. The staff that we saw occassionally where very friendly. We where close to restaurants, shopping and activities.
I would highly recommend staying st a Brooks and Shorey facility. The process was very easy."

"Nice unit
Overall a nice unit. It was lacking in decor, lighting, and overall charm. It was clean and had the basics. "
Aug 16, 2021 - Erin K., Maryland Heights, MO

"Home Away From Home
This was our second time renting through Brooks and Shorey and first time in Gulf Dunes 307. Everything was clean and in working order! Plenty of towels, kitchen items and comfy sleeping arrangements. Balcony furniture also a plus! We will rent this unit again!"
Jun 14, 2021 - Kelly N., Liberty Township, OH

"Excellent stay
Location is great. Beach access very convenient and the parking beside it is a plus. Loved the unit. Though one of the bathroom vents needs cleaning and pillowcase for the additional pillows would be appreciated."
Jun 07, 2021 - , Monticello, AR

"Outstanding Week
3rd stay in this unit in last 5 years. Nice spruce up. Still needs a screen door. Perfect height to see beach and gulf and still use stairs without huffing and puffing lol.Weather was 75ish and breezzy as always. New tv, washer/dryer, and floor was also a nice touch. Thumbs up on our stay!"
May 17, 2021 - , Linn Grove, IN

This is our first time using Brooks and Shorey Resort and they are excellent to work with and it was a great stay. "
Apr 27, 2021 - , Troy, MO

"Nice Spot
Nice, clean unit with great views and convenient, covered parking. Included beach setup was nice, and other "perks" via the mobile app were a nice bonus. Our reservation was a last minute booking due to the mandatory hurricane evacuation requirement from Orange Beach where we originally planned to stay. The booking process was very easy, and the representative who assisted me couldn't have been more helpful. No complaints, and we would be happy to return for another trip!"
Nov 03, 2020 - Jonathan B., Spring hill, TN

"Overall great condo with a couple of exceptions
Beautiful condo, in great location . We went right before 4th of July and still had no trouble with parking or crowding on the beach. Chair + umbrella service was included which is amazing! They don’t let the beach get overcrowded with the chairs either, everyone could have a direct view, not rows and rows like many other condos I’ve been to.
Only negatives: Mattresses are TERRIBLE... so if you value a good sleep on vaca you might reconsider. Cheap and super comfortable memory foam mattresses are easy to get on Amazon... owner should consider upgrading because this really brought the experience down.
WIFI was so bad you couldn’t watch Netflix or stream anything. "

"Needed 2020 break
Comfy bed, convenient location, nice kitchen, we beat Cristobal."
Jun 08, 2020 - Eric W., Springfield, MO

"It was fine, big improvement from last year
The condo was very nice, I had the same unit last year it was too much color, this year 2020 the furniture had been replaced, very nice, new floors, newly painted, it could use a little color on the walls, new table, chairs n stools, new frig, no ice maker, maybe just wasn’t connected, I was very pleased. The TV was in a badcspotbforvdaytime watching, reflection from windows, had yonclose drapes. That’s my only complaint. If I come back would deffinetlybtryntongetbthevsame one, sonconvient to elevator, trash chute and just fine,"
Mar 03, 2020 - Shirley T., Harrison, OH

"Great condo
The condo is cute and has a beautiful view and great location. Beds were comfy, except for the pullout sofa, which was unfit for sleeping. It would have been nice if our parking spot in the garage hasn’t been blocked by the painters."

It was a wonderful experience."

"Wonderful Trip
We had a wonderful visit to Ft. Walton. We got there a little early & went & had lunch & just as we finished got a call from the sweet lady in the office that our condo was ready early! What a nice surprise. The weather was beautiful. The condo was perfect & very clean. We had an awesome visit!
Sep 12, 2018 - Wanda J., Atlanta, GA

The beach was wonderful as always! Beautiful weather despite the forcast of a tropical storm. The staff at Brooks and Shorey were great as always. We have stayed in Gulf Dunes many times - but in a different condo than this visit. The condo smelled really clean when we walked in and was ready before the time they gave us to check in ! However, I was very disappointed in the condo this visit. TV in bedroom would not work. Did not really matter to me but it was the LSU football game weekend! Had to change the batteries in the living room remote for it to work. The kitchen faucet handle came off in my hand. Kitchen lighting was very bad and there was mold around the top of the kitchen cabinets and the vents had not been cleaned in a while. The bathtub had a huge crack down the wall between the wall and tub surround. One of the toilets shoots water up when you flush it so you have to put the lid down first! The carpet in the bedroom needs a VERY good steam cleaning or better, just replace it. Bedroom walls really needed a new coat of pain (not white - it shows every scratch) This condo just needs a "facelift" and some TLC. There were lots of clean linens and washer/dryer was new. Lots of good kitchen supplies also! Stove needed some attention also - one burner did not work without wiggling it and the other ones take a long time to get hot! The patio furniture was nice but need to be cleaned too! It really could be a cute little place with some updates! But the view makes up for anything else! It is just amazing!!! I love Gulf Dunes but will pick another unit from now on! "

"Our Home Away from home
We thought our trip was going to be a bust after the Emerald Towers told us a few days before we were leaving our condo was no longer available. I got in touch with Marianne at the Gulf Dunes and she immediately got us into our room. The room was great. Only issue is the wifi signal is weak. The view is breath taking. The room was perfect and you could not ask for a better staff. This is going to be our return place each year. You will fill confident and happy dealing with the Gulf Dunes. Been to several places and we love this place. "

Great area stay right on the beach, blue green water ,fine white sandy beaches,clean nice condo"
Jun 30, 2018 - , Louisville, KY.

"Another great beach vacation!
After a delay in arriving to Fort Walton due to road work throughout the 12 hr trip I received a call that our room was ready early. We were very happy about this and were extremely satisfied with our room. This is the 3rd time in the last 3 years coming to the area each time staying at a different location. We have booked using the resort building owner, a hotel, and also used . I can honestly say booking a hotel has been our least favorite. There are both advantages and disadvantages to all but it is nice to know that you can find a wonderful place to stay through . It is a great option that we will use again. I would like to thank the owners of the condo and Brooks and Shorey for an awesome stay."

"Most convenient place to Stay
Couch and chair are just about worn. Neither comfortable. Cracks in wall. Needs a coat paint almost everywhere. Bed is great. Perfect place for a condo. No problems with anything. Chairs on deck have mold on them. Also some in bathroom. Plants could be changed inside and out. Gilligans, Stewbys, McGregors are places we ate all good. All in all had fun thanks. "

"Great Vacation Getaway
Very nice condo and very nice location. I really enjoyed the stay!"
Sep 11, 2017 - Barbara A., Terre Haute, IN

"Family Vacation
Overall, we were very pleased with our stay as the location is perfect and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. The condo was decorated fun for a family stay with young children. We really did enjoy our stay as this condo is literally steps from the ocean. However, the furniture and beds were not very comfortable, which my husband and I could feel the effects from by the end of our stay. "

As usual we had a great time "
Jun 08, 2017 - Suzanne S., Marion, Illinois

"Great Room
Plenty of room for Two adults and 3 children! Good selection of cooking utensils. Third floor location was perfect. Great view of the ocean. Used the steps most trips unless carrying suitcases or groceries. We left beach chairs in the parking garage overnight and they were ?stolen? before noon, but we should have known better..."
May 01, 2017 - , Utica, KY

"Spring Retreat
Enjoyed the beach and area activities to there fullest. The Condo is very nicely decorated and the perfect view from the balcony to watch beach activities and dolphins playing out past the sand bar. My stay was 8 days with no weather problems at all. 80's in the afternoon and 70's in the morning. Never even used the dining room table as the balcony table was the most used furniture of the stay. LOL The parking garage was also a nice feature as my vehicle was out of the salt/sand/dew. My rating would be 5 Star for this unit."

"Wonderful Stay!
Awesome condo right on the beach. Perfect location and close to everything! Less than a mile to the pier and activities and close to a grocery store.

"Yearly Vacation
Amazing view. Amazing beach."
Jul 07, 2016 - Martin R., Spring, TX

Very clean & perfect location for us! TV in living room could be updated to a flat screen but other than that we would stay again!"
Mar 02, 2016 - Celeste R., Lansing, MI

We loved the colors and decorations, the place is really cute, has a great view and could be an awesome place to stay. Unfortunately, we can't give a 4 or 5 star rating for the dryer made a loud horrible sound as if it was going to break. One of the toilets backed up any time you flushed it and the carpet in the bedroom should be replaced (new or tile). And overall the complex overall had an old / musty smell. If these things were addressed, we would recommend this property and consider staying here again in the future. "

"Perfect little home away from home.
The friendliest staff EVER. The most beautiful and calming view right on the crystal clear ocean...the perfect getaway. The place had a great vacation vibe - so colorful and fun, and being able to walk right out on the balcony to listen to the waves lap up on the shoreline was just what we needed. We will definitely be back."
Sep 05, 2015 - Hillary G., Murfreesboro, TN

"Rented this for the kids
Fantastic! I personally did not stay in this unit - but daughter and grand kids did not my taste in furnishings with the walls so bright and tv needs updating as the rest of living area needs a re-do. They were happy here so that's all that matters. But needs to be freshened up some. "

"Beautiful Views, great location, convienent to Destin
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed ourselves ages: 7 years to 68 years old.
Pros:Photos, description, location, layout and amenities were very accurate. I will definitely recommend to relatives and friends. We ate most meals in the condo.
Restaurants: Old Bay Steamer is within walking distance. Pricey but well worth it. No fried food here, hence the name. Floyds all you can eat shrimp for $10 from 4-6 pm is well worth it.
Entertainment: Free passes for activities- although you get one per day- you cannot save them. We went snorkeling and saved $28 with the one free adult pass. It was a great time and everyone was very courteous and offered great customer service. The company you call to setup reservations is not the same company you use to go out on a boat. (verify reservations with company) When we arrived at our designated time, we found out we had been setup for the next day. They had room for us so we were able to go on the one we were there for.
Destin is just over the bridge within 10 minutes without traffic. The Harborwalk in Destin has hours and hours of entertainment.
AC worked wonderfully
Balcony views are spectacular- overlooks the pool to the left
Beach service was very nice and convenient
Designated covered parking for 1 vehicle was very convenient and we were able to leave our beach items at the front of our parking space so we would not have to carry them to the room and take up space.
Cons: (I feel like I am being picky with the cons, but it will help if you know in advance)
Sliding glass door heavy and no handle on outside, no locks on bedroom or bathroom doors (you can lock the shared doors to the room with the bath/shower,Dryer does not heat up very well (took several hours to dry full loads, the patio furniture is comfortable but heavy to move"

"June 2015
Our family had never used a condo at Fort Walton before this trip. Gulf Dunes is a no frills property but is well maintained and of course has a beautiful view from every unit. The management staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the beach service that was included with our unit and the proximity to many things. Because Gulf Dunes is relatively small, the beach right in front was not overly crowded compared to others nearby. The only complaint we had really was the abundance of dead fish this year. The condos in the area should try and clean it up somehow, but nature will do what it does. Always love the beach, but if you want less crowds, look to areas with private homes to rent. Otherwise this is a very good property."

"wonderful vacation
Wonderful is the first thing that comes to mind. Staff very nice, friendly and helpful. The young man that placed the beach chairs was a joy to be around everyday. His work ethic is one to be admired for his age. The condo could not have been more perfect. WE WILL stay again. Brooks and Shorey made this a painless event with smooth check in check out. How could anyone complain about the balcony and that view. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping made this location excellent. Thank you! "

"Gulf Dunes Stay on Okaloosa Island
Unit 307 @ Gulf Dunes has a wonderful view and was as described accurately. The location and amenities of the property were above standard. The "front desk" provided superior service and were able to answer and explain any questions we had about the property, the area, WiFi hookup etc. The unit itself was pleasantly decorated but in need of some deep cleaning and regular maintenance (loose tiles in hallway, open paint cans on bathroom shelf, dying plants on balcony, disheveled plant arrangement in corner)that come with everyday use of any unit. We would rent this unit at this property again. "

"Fall Break
The weather, Beach, Condo location and view from the balcony were perfect! The condo itself was just ok. I know this is an older condo but it sure could use an update. Living room furniture is very uncomfortable and the TV is really old and pitiful. (which is only relevant because it's football season) I would probably consider Gulf Dunes again but not this unit. "
Oct 22, 2014 - Laurie J., Ringgold, GA

Gulf Dunes is located right on the beach. Location is great, in a quiet area yet close enough to great restaurants. Never had a bad experience, rooms are always clean. A nice place to just relax and unwind. "

"Great place
This condo was great! It was what we needed for our family. The only thing that we suggested was a little softer chairs on the balcony. Other then that our was great! Awesome view, nice pool, everything in the condo that we needed. "

Had a great time"

"Great location-not so comfortable
Overall we enjoyed our vacation. But it was difficult to cook on the antique stove, the dining room chairs were uncomfortable and the bed could use a new matress."
Mar 03, 2014 - , Valparaiso, IN

"Great relaxing vacation
This vacation was one of the best we have taken. We were absolutely exhausted from work and stress so we just wanted a quiet peaceful time away from everything. This was perfect...very quiet but close enough to Destin to go to dinner too. The condo was very well maintained and the check in process was very quick and easy. I loved it there and we are already planning our next visit.`"

"A great stay. Were there 5 days and could have stayed a month.
The condo was very nice. Weather great, maybe a little windy but great beach weather nevertheless. Can't wait to get back there next spring."

"Great Accommodations!
Booked a last minute extended weekend in Fort Walton Beach. Was a little worried, as I usually plan these things months in advance. This was my first time using Brooks & Shorey and my first stay at Gulf Dunes. Very pleased with the entire experience from start to finish. The management personnel was on-site, so I didn't have to roam around looking for their office. The lady who checked me in could not have been more helpful! She explained everything to me in detail and even provided me with directions to local markets. The condo was extremely clean, affordable and beachfront - which was the best part! Unfortunately, mother nature did not cooperate, but it was still nice to get away! The amenities were awesome ... free umbrella/chair set up (which usually costs about $25 a day, free movie rental, golf, etc. I am already thinking about when I can get back to the beach, and would recommend Gulf Dunes to anyone looking for a place to vacation in Fort Walton!"

"Girls Week Out!!!!
I started staying at Gulf Dunes back in early 2000(I have stayed there like 10 times since). It was only a few years old then. Its in a great location and the staff has always been helpful. This stay (2012) was wonderful but the room was not the greatest in cleaniness, also maybe consider some upgrades. But I will continue to stay as long as it doesn't get to dirty:)"

"Best trip ever!
We will be back, I told the office staff that I was pleasantly surprised. Everything was so clean & so well stocked. Perfect location & great view, very family freindly, only one small complaint the sliding door would not lock & very hard to open and close. One day there was a lot of Junk washed up on the beach, broken glass, cans, nasty stuff, but I suspect was from the hurricane a few days we arrived. "

"Wonderful vacation
Me and my family loved Fort Walton Beach. The water looked just like the ocean from the Caribbean. I will never look at any other beach the same way. We had a wonderful vacation and perfect weather. I would recommend this condo to anyone who is looking to have a wonderful vacation in a very family friendly place. It was a great experience."

We always enjoy our stay here just out of the busy area. We are only minutes away from everything we want to do."

"A great start to 2012
The view and weather were great! Our only disatisfication was the very low water flow in the kitchen sink. It was so low that we were afraid to run the garabage disposal. Maintenance checked it and said that there was nothing to be done. "

"First trip to Okaloosa Island
It is always nice to get a break from 'winter in Wisconsin". This year we explored FWB/Destin and loved the area. We loved the very cute 1 BR condo at Gulf Dunes. It was close to the beach which we also loved. We appreciated the golf ammenitiy offered by Golf Dunes. We're already looking forward to our next visit.
We only had 1 problem while there. The clothes dryer left "burn marks" on some of our clothing. We reported such and were told that maintainence would take care of it.
In general ,everything else was comfortable and enjoyable. "

"Unit 307
The property as a whole was well kept, but the pool is very small and the dunes obstruct the view of the gulf from the pool area. Our individual unit needed some maintenance...mold above the shower, dryer making weird noises, balcony needed serious cleaning, etc...things that could easily be fixed to make it a much better place to stay. Location is great! I would recommend the Gulf Dunes to a friend, but probably not that particular unit."

We stayed in Gulf Dunes 307. It was a wonderfully decorated and clean condo. The balcony was great. We will stay there again! "

"Beatiful View
We had a great time while we were there. Very close to a lot of great things to do and shopping. We were so happy with the covered parking too. The management was very nice and helpful. We had a broken door knob in the bathroom and it took several days for it to be fixed but it was largely our fault, we didn't want anyone coming in the unit while we were out. It wasn't a big deal and didn't bother us that much. We will be back in the future.

Thank you!"

"Great Condo
This condo was beautifully decorated in bright colors which I enjoyed over the usual peach and seaform green beachy colors. I picked this condo over the others because it had a chair I could recline in (I have a neck and back condition) instead of a love seat, and for the balcony furniture that sits high up so that you look at the view and not at the railing. Best eats are at Sealand and Pandora's. YUMMMMM!!! OH, the free golf round at Shalimar Pointe is a MAJOR reason to rent from B & S."
Apr 29, 2009 - , Lafayette, GA

Our first stay 5/13 Unit 102 was great. 2nd stay 9/19 Unit 412 had drainage problems in one tub, which maintenance took care of. Stove bottom door was broken, bathrooms were not clean. Carpet was filthy. Reported this. 3rd stay 10/15 assuming problems were corrected, we again booked this unit - conditions wwere exactly as before.
4th stay Unit 307 11/11, carpets filthy, someone had been sitting on bed in front of TV smoking. When we went to dinner two women were entering the last unit with a dog. Your "Property Rules" clearly state NO PETS. We frequently come to Fort Walton and thought we had found a Home-away-from home, but we do have a problem with incompetent cleaning."
