Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 The condo had everything we needed. I would suggest another frying pan medium size. Loved the spectacular view of the ocean. I was amazed at how quiet it was. I definitely will come back. The late check in was easy and I loved the complimentary gift bag and movie rental card. It came in handy at night and while it stormed. Thanks for the accommodations.

A guest from Centerville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 Great condo. We had a super stay. The end of the island that the building is on is less crowded than near the pier and Boardwalk. We could not have asked for a better location. We had the whole family, 8 total there. Plenty of space. The kitchen was fairly well stocked and I cooked each night without any major hiccups as far as cooking utensils and pots and pans.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review and for all of your comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back again in the near future.
Andy B. from O Fallon, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 The unit was nice. I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars for some minor issues. 1) Tv in bedroom has no sound on many of the channels 2) Balcony door was hard to open and shut 3) blinds from master bedroom to balcony could not be raised because the cord was broken off made it very hard to get to the balcony from the bedroom. Other than that we had a good time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention, we will be sure to escalate to our maintenance department. We hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future!
Ricky M. from Cleveland, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 This was my first trip to Fort Walton for my family and I. We stayed here to avoid the traffic and congestion of Destin/Panama Beach where we have stayed in the past. The condo is in a good location, on a semi private road with mostly condo buildings on it and little traffic. The location was however close to Destin (about 6-8 miles depending on where in Destin you are going). The beach was clean and uncrowded in Late May. All the eateries seated us quickly with hardly any wait. The ocean water was clear and calm most days (we stayed 6) and our 3 year old granddaughter enjoyed playing in the ocean. Our unit was located on the second floor of the Emerald West building. The unit was clean and comfortable. Everything worked as it should, and the kitchen was stocked with enough pots/pans for simple meals. We don't cook a lot on vacation because we do enough of that at home. Beds were comfy, and plenty of ceiling fans kept it as cool as you wanted. Some of the cons; The outdoor furniture on the balcony badly needs upgraded from the flimsy plastic chairs and table, or at least a good coat colorful plastic paint. I am a large man at around 260 lbs, and I was afraid at times the plastic chairs would collapse with me. Also the balcony is a little small for 5 people when we all wanted to enjoy our coffee in the morning. The sliding doors to the balcony needs some grease/oil on the slides because they are a task to open and close. One of the pillowcases in a bedroom had something red (lipstick?) on it when we arrived, but it washed out in the washer/dryer. The couches, chair, and pillows in the living room were a little soiled and needed a good cleaning. If you are wanting a big ocean side pool, this condo does not have that. The pool is in front of the condo on street side. It was clean and uncrowded however our entire stay. Other than these little issues we had a great time, and enjoyed our stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the very informative review, it is nice to hear the good in the unit but also feedback in terms of what can make our guests stay more comfortable. We will pass the comments onto the owner. Sounds to us like you ventured into Fort Walton and experienced all the great restaurants. You truly are spoiled for choice! We hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Debbie C. from Culleoka, Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Very nice room with great views. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate but did get to spend a few hours on the beach.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review! We hope to welcome you back again soon!

Mark K. from Elsberry, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2014 We had a great time. Plenty of room for 8 adults. Beach was very clean. Close to many restaurants.

Jennifer C. from Ballwin, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Our Vacation was so relaxing and with a beautiful beach front. The water was a cool blue, no jellyfish. The room could be updated, but was clean and comfortable. The toilet seats need to be replaced as well as the carpets. We were very pleased otherwise. There is wifi, flat screen tvs, the kitchen has all utensils and a dishwasher. It has a brand new washer & dryer as well. There is a small pool if you have little ones. This condo was close to all activities in the area and is in a very peaceful location unlike the Destin area. The customer service was great! They gave free movie rentals too. I would recommmend this condo to anyone. We ate at the Crabshack(delicious) & went to the Gulfarium (needs work). We also wanted to go to Boschamps restaurant in Destin as we had been there 2 years prior, but the wait was 1 hour. If you go, lunchtime might be a better option. It's super! We ended up a Ruth Chris steakhous. (Bring alot of $$ for this one- was delicious though). My son & husband went on a helicopter tour(they said was awesome!). Also, it offers 1 free day of beach chair rental and the rest are reasonable. The also offer longboard paddle & kayaks to rent. They were popular. We rented a pontoon boat & waverunners at a nearby rental co. They were very reasonable as well. Cheaper than at our local lakes. Overall, despite needing updated, I was pleased with the condo, location, customer service & most of all the beach front location.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your great review and all your helpful comments! Just wanted to clarify - the 2 beach chairs and 1 umbrella on the beach come with the rental DAILY and they are FREE. However, any additional sets would need to be bought directly from the beach attendant. It's so good to hear about all the fun stuff you and your family experienced during your vacation. That is exactly how a vacation should be! Filled with great eats and fun activities. We sure hope to see you again on the Okaloosa Island very soon!
Shannon H. from Lanesville, IN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 We enjoyed the location of this property. The view was beautiful, loved watching the dolphins play every morning. The property itself is in need of some updating. The condo was outdated, and needs a lot of work. However, we didn't spend a whole lot of time in the condo. I would recommend replacing the iron (which was broken and didn't work) as well as the coffee pot that took about 30 mins each morning to brew a pot of coffee. I didn't like that there wasn't a door on the bathroom in the master, but not sure if anything can be done about that. I will say that the bathroom down by the pool was broken. I called to have it fixed and it was fixed the next day. That was great!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! We are very happy you enjoyed the location of this property and the view! Thank you for your comments about the iron and the coffee maker! We are going to have those replaced right away. If you had called us about these items during your stay, we would have replaced them that same day but unfortunately, we never heard from you. Unfortunately, nothing can be done about the door in the master is how the layout of the condo is. We will forward your comments to the condo owner, we appreciate your input! We hope to see you again on the Okaloosa Island, maybe at a different property.

Tom S. from Rogersville, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 We enjoyed our family vacation 8/3-8/10. The unit was clean and well-stocked. The only thing I would change would be a real door on the master bathroom.
Jack G. from Cumming, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Over all a good vacation. ust a couple of things that need to be taken care of. The master bedroom carpet needs cleaning and the balcony furnature could be upgraded.
Dori P. from Philadalphia, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Great location..nice-sized bedrooms..everything was probs except the elevator is extremely slow, didn't mind taking the stairs except for loading/unloading the vehicle. Overall, wonderful stay..will definitely visit again!
Philip R. from Richmond, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 My family had a wonderful time in this fantastic unit. We had a couple of small things that had to be repaired when we first got thier because of neglect by the previous occupants but maintenance was very helpful and they took care of our small issues within a few minutes. We felt like we were home... home with comfortable beds and a fantastic location right on the beach! Check-in was also very quick and easy. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special. Thanks Brooks & Shorey!!! We loved our stay!
Kirby C. from Monroe, Louisiana recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2013 We really enjoyed our stay and will use Brooks and Shorey the next time we go on vacation. The young lady from England at the rental office was very helpful and informative. The only complaint we had was the lock on the glass door leading to the patio was broken.
Wanda P. from Tina, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 The management team was so helpful and friendly. The property was beautiful, spacious, and felt like home. Kids loved the easy access to the beach, adults liked sitting on the balcony and watching them. Peaceful setting to relax. Ft. Walton was easy to get around in and restaurants, grocery stores, and general shopping was close. Destin was within easy reach and a bit more commercial and busy to get around in. Just can't say enough nice things about property or management team.
David N. from Ooltewah, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 I work in customer service and of course I am always looking for the professionalism I believe I portray on a daily basis. I must say I was very pleased with the way the management team treated us when we arrived. We were delighted with our condo and the conditions of each room. All in all, I would come back and suggest to all of my friends and family to stay with Brooks and Shorey Resorts.
A guest from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 The location was wonderful. The unit itself needs a bit of maintenance-- screen doors coming off of track, window in master suite didn't open properly and without much force. Otherwise, we enjoyed our vacation.
MIchelle F. from Mount Washington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2012 Loved staying at this place. The rooms were clean but a little dated but I didn't care as long as clean & no bugs. Would highly recommend anyone to stay there. Great price!!!
Sandra S. from Flower Mound, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 We had a great time in Fort Walton Beach! The condo location was ideal, the beach wasn't crowded and the water was perfect. We drove a few miles down the road to Destin for dinner but turned around after seeing how congested it was there. Very glad we chose Fort Walton Beach and would definately stay there again. The condo had everything we needed.
William A. from Robinson, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 This has been our 5th trip to Ft. Walton Beach and every time it gets better. I have to say that rental experience, to include the location and the hospitality of the rental agents was outstanding. We look forward to using this condo again in the near future.
A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012 Check in after hours was a breeze, ease of location to the beach is fantastic, friendly service from Brooks and Shorey and Sunset Beach Chairs. Beautiful white clean sand, clear aqua water. We had a productive week of doing nothing! The men in the family caught giant red fish from the pier - everyone happy!
A guest from Williamson, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011 We have stayed at ETW on a few occasions. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. This was the first time in this condo. Beautifully decorated and well equipped. Cleanliness and a well equipped kitchen is very important to me. Each of the condos have been both. Love the beach front view!!! Will definitely be staying in this particular condo again. Thank you for a WONDERFUL stay!!!
Charles A. from Broadlands, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 The family and I would to express our graditude on our stay in your condo. Words can't describe how good it was and I only wished 2 other things could have happened while we were there.1st I wished my late wife could have been with us and 2nd my grandkids so they could have had as much fun as we did. We have talked amongst ourselves and decided that this trip was well worth it only need to stay longer.Thank You we appreciate everything you provided and can't wait to come back.
Karen H. from Indianapolis, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2010 My Family & I found this Condo to be beautiful & more than anybody would need to find relaxation! The view from the balcony was exquisite! It was so homey and we didn't feel the need to do much of anything in town because we had the beach, the pool and comfy living areas to relax inside or on the deck. I would definitely go back to this Condo.
A guest from Marion, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009 When the dryer didn't work, the management was very quiock to get it replaced and while we were waiting for the replacement they gave us a key to use another unused facility next door.
Marcia G. from Cornelius, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2008 We certainly enjoyed our stay in #2005. The beds were comfortable and the condo had everything we needed. the location was exactly what we wanted. Brooks & Shorey made our check in and out very easy with not a hitch. We will be back.
John I. from Fort Worth, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2008 some minor problems:6002: needs can opener(electic or manual). The 2 manual openers supplied were broken. We had to borrow opener from another unit.2005: Twin bedroom bed was shakey, possibly broken. Radio Shack remote for tv in twin bedroom didn't work. We changed batteries but no success...same tv had bad cable connection and would cut out often.Overall we had a good stay. May be slightly overpriced.
A guest from MEMPHIS, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2008 Only 2 drawbacks: foldout couch less comfortable than the floor; kitchen sink had pan underneath to catch drips that required emptying. The condo itself is lovely and comfy, and the location is perfection. Just don't try to sleep on the fold out couch!
Sandra M. from Mount Olive, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in June, 2008 The location was great. We had stayed 5 nights in 2007 and decided, due to the wonderful experience to stay another day resulting in the rental of 2005. We will definetly return!
