A guest from Danville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 We love this unit. It is evident the owners take excellent care and keep it updated. It was spotless upon arrival and plenty of towels for 2 people for a week. The view from the balcony is unbelievable. Beach service is a great bonus. The team at Brooks and Shorey are the best of all the companies we have used. We will stick with them for return visits.

Paula D. from Huntsville, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 we had the time of our lives, everyone was very accommodating and kind. unit needs some TLC/updating but by no means an issue...only issue, cleaning lady was early and pushy. just came rigth on in at 9 am.. check out is clearly 10am. she didnt even knock. told her we were not ready, she left and came back 15 mins later... the cleaning service could be replaced, imo. its not very clean. it wasnt filthy by no means, but not as clean as it should be. dust on ceiling near fan, and on curtains, dishes put away dirty, spot on the carpet and sofa, very small, but noticeable...for the cost, you would expect spotless. I am not complaining one bit. We loved it 100%. Just informing... We WILL be back next year :)
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for filling out the review, we are glad that your vacation was so enjoyable! Thank you for advising us of the situation with housekeeping, it has been addressed and we are also scheduling a deep clean for this unit.

A guest from Conway, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 We chose Gulfside to stay at this year because we We Had stayed there before and loved it!

Richard P. from Johnston, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 This was a great condo. Right on the beach with a perfect view - we saw dolphins swimming by twice. The people at Brooks and Shorey were VERY accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommend booking through Brooks and Shoprey (my family has been using them for nearly 20 years) and staying in Gulfside unit 503.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the recommendation and the lovely words concerning both Brooks and Shorey staff and also the beautiful condo 503 Gulfside! We thank you (and your family) for choosing Brooks and Shorey Resorts for your Florida vacation! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future!
A guest from louisville, kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2015 The condo building was in a perfect location , beach was steps away and you don't have to go walk far to be at the beach and with the umbrella and beach chairs set up all you need to bring is yourself and sunscreen . The only problem I had though is the wifi which was too slow. But overall our stay was great! Also the extra bathroom did not have a shower that was working just a bath tub.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for notifying us regarding the shower, we will certainly get maintenance to take a look at that. We look forward to welcoming you back again to Okaloosa Island
A guest from Texarkana, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2014 This condo has a nice view of the beach and water...that is all this condo has going for it.The kitchen cabinets are very nasty and need to be cleaned. The master bath tub area is a joke. Linens were old and the pictures look good but the bowling alley all was rediculous.The supplies was nill to nothing...and the garbage trash compactor was just gross. This condo is NOT worth the price we paid. I could go on and on but what does it matter.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review. We are sorry to hear that this condo did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, we never heard from you during your stay about any of the above mentioned concerns so we never had a chance to correct the issues. Please know that you can always reach out to us - our offices are open daily - and we will do our best to make sure you are happy with your stay. We do hope to see you again in the future, maybe in a different condo.
A guest from Collierville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2014 Great view. Well supplied kitchen.Quiet a few light switches didn't work--don't know what that is about.Main negative was finding dirty dishes in the cupboards - wine glasses with red wine stuck in the bottom, coffee pot with coffee still in carafe and tea pitcher still with wet tea. Made me wonder what other things I could not see, that was unclean.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We apologize regarding the dishes. We do state on the paperwork for dishwashers to be loaded prior to vacating the property, this must not have been the case in this instance and the dishes have been unloaded by the guests without completing its cycle. Please if you ever experience anything like this again during your stay always call us. This is an issue that can be easily resolved and we could have sent a housekeeper up to you straight away. We hope that this experience will not prevent you from staying with us again!
Lorie S. from Etowah, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 we had a great time. the view was just wonderful. we spend most of our time on the beach but having the pool on top of the building was just like being at the beach. we really loved the pool.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review! The rooftop pool at the Gulfside is beautiful with views that could simply take your breathe away! We hope to welcome you back again to Beautiful Okaloosa Island!
Heather L. from Adamsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 Absolutely loved this condo - plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 kids. Very quiet and private. Beautiful view. I pray we will be able to come back one day!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review! We hope to see you again very soon!
A guest from Flowery Branch, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 Great complex and wonderful unit! The only complaint is one that occurs each year - the beach service attendants start taking up the chairs and umbrellas every day at 3:00 pm!! Since they only set up at 8:00 am, it seems that they should leave the set ups until at least 5:00 pm.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review! We are very happy you had another great vacation on the Okaloosa Island! As for the beach chairs - those should definitely stay on the beach till 5PM. Next time the beach attendant starts collecting them early, please feel free to give us a call! Even though the beach service company is not affiliated with with Brooks and Shorey Resorts, we can always give them a call and see what's going on. Please accept our apologies about that!
Connie C. from Fayetteville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 We had a great time at this location. We have stayed at different condos at Gulf Side over the years and 503 was by far the best. We will definitely book this one again next year!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review! We are very happy your family had a great time and so good to hear you are planning on coming back! Gulfside unit 503 is really a GREAT condo and we hope to see you again soon at the Gulfside!

Angie M. from Whitehouse, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 For our first Florida beach vacation we could have not been more happy with our choice of condo. We stayed in 503 and felt right at home.Condo was clean, comfortable and had everything in the kitchen we needed. Our kids thought swimming in the rooftop pool was the coolest ever. The guys with the beach service were very accommodating. We will most definitely be back.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Gulfside!

A guest from Danville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2013 The condo is exactly as pictured with stunning viewsFrom the living room and balcony. Overall Clean but did not get a 5 because one trashcan had not been emptieWe appreciate the well equipped kitchen and it is evidentThe owners are thoughtful in providing guests all the comforts of home. The management company patience with questions in helping me find the right condo for my needs. I prefer to work with Brooks and Shirey because they are a local company who wants to help create a memorable vacation.

We do apologize about the trash can not being emptied. We hope to see you again in the near future and don't forget to take advantage of our return guest discount when you call in to reserve your next vacation.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 Going during the off season is fun for our family because the beaches are rather empty and none of us like to swim that much, anyway. The property was great and had a great view. The furniture (bed frames) may use a few replacements here and there, but it was overall clean. The bathrooms have very low sinks and toilets, for some reason. The rooftop pool is great, but the outside breezeways on each floor between the doors and the elevator get sandy/wet really easily and you will track all the dirt/water/sand into the condo. Would recommend flipflops for walking around indoors.Lovely stay!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to write this review, your feedback is very important to us! We hope to welcome you back to one of our properties again in the future!
Betty P. from Memphis, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2013 Unit 503 is like "going home" -- we will definitely rent that unit again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. That is such a nice thing to say! Thank yoiu so much for your kind words. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Be sure to call to make your reservation, we would be happy to apply a returners discount!
Laura H. from New Orleans, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 We enjoy Gulfside in general because of the nice size of the condo, the fact that there are fewer people on the beach because of fewer condos in the building, and because of the great pool on the roof. This particular rental had newer furniture and was pretty nice. The views from the porch are always great.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank youi for taking the time to wrte this review, This particular unit had updates made in November 2012, and we must looks rather nice! The wrap around balcony help with the amazing view of the Gulf!... not to mention the spectacular views from the rooftop pool! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay!
A guest from cullman, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 This was a wonderful place to stay. Well decorated. This area had a great family atmosphere. We plan on staying here again soon.

Tim B. from Saint Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Great location and view. Building shows a little wear. Plumbing and electrical fixtures could use some updating. Love the pool on the roof. I would stay here again.
Amanda W. from Columbus, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 A wonderful time on a beautiful beach! The weather ALMOST cooperated the whole week. Gulfside is our home away from home. It is just as comfortable, clean, and is right on the beach!
Kendall N. from Springtown, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 Nice Beach Front Condo. Just be aware if you drive a large truck parking can be an issue. But after speaking with Management parking is allowed at the Condos next door. VERY CLOSE and not an issue at all.
A guest from Kingwood, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 We had a great time on our first family trip to destin however there were several pros and one big con to this property. Location was great,access to the beach could not of been better. With two very small kiddos it was so nice to have beach chairs and umbrella set up each day. Beaches were beautiful and never crowded. It was great to sit out on porch each evening and enjoy site and sounds of the ocean. The roof top pool was fantastic as well. The biggest disappointment to the property was how dirty it was upon arrival. Floors were horribly dirty, all "clean" sheets to all beds had to be changed due to hair and dirt. Bathrooms were a site as well. We really are not "that family" that complains about things, actually we are very laid back about things but this was not acceptable. We needed up cleaning the property ourselves upon arrival. We contacted the management company upon leaving just to let the owners know that they may need to find a new cleaning service. If this issue has been resolved we would return.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! We appreciate your comments about the cleaning service and we have passed along this info to the housekeeping director. We are glad you have enjoyed your stay and liked the location, rooftop pool and the beach access. Please remember to ask about our return customer discount for your next stay. We look forward to seeing you in Fort Walton Beach, Fl!
A guest from Bethel, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 This is our 4th stay at this condo. We love it - very relaxing and quiet! Dolphins in the morning. It's right on the beach. Umbrella and chairs included (I burn so this is great!) Beach is not crowded. The condo is clean and has plenty of cooking utensils - if you eat in. We'll be back next year for sure !
Betty P. from Memphis, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gulfside 503 except for the unusually cold weather! The condo had nothing to do with that of course. The unit is beautiful and so comfortable. I am glad that we were able to make it there before 5 p.m. When we left the keys in the box on our checkout, we could not get the lock open so I would wonder about obtaining a key after 5 p.m. upon checkin. Also, the directions to your building were given to us as if we were driving from Panama City when we were driving from Memphis, TN via Mobile and Pensacola. We will definitely make plans for another visit to the same unit next May if not before.
Reva W. from Ocoee, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2013 We had a great time - even on the two rainy days. Great balcony. We also loved the pool on the roof - it was like being on a cruise ship.
A guest from Lilburn, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013 This condo has panoramic views of the beach and ocean. Very nicely decorated. It's so easy to relax listening to the waves break, and they're so close.
Ranie A. from Thomasville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 This was our first vacation to Fort Walton beach we usually go to Gulf Shores, we will definitely make this our permanent beach spot we loved the area and the property!!
Keith L. from O'Fallon, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 Terrific balcony and view. If we weren't on the beach or at the pool, we lived on the balcony. We used it so much, the handle came loose. Brooks and Shorey had it fixed in no time. The folks in the office and the repairman were super friendly and efficient. We can't wait to go back!
Jason R. from Natchitoches, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012 We loved the property, great location, close to everything, other guest were very nice, we enjoyed our stay and hope to be back next year.
A guest from White Hall, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 Overall, we had a wonderful vacation. It would have been better to have had internet access. The view and rooftop pool were amazing.
A guest from Opelousas, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 We enjoyed our stay here. The only problem that we had was that the parking was alittle tight to get in and out of. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.
My wife and I gave this a trial run and it was well worth it!!!
Brad W. from Clayton, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2012 We gave this a trial and it was more than we expected. It was a great getaway stay and we will be returning with our kids next year!!! Can't wait!!!
Tim J. from Odessa, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 Great trip! Super location. Parking in a large suv a little difficult. Everything in the condo worked as it should. Clean but not spotless. Tv's are very nice. We will Stay here again. Very good company to work with. This was our first trip to this area. Once again, great place for our family.
Chance H. from Gonzales, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 This was our 4th year staying in this exact condo. We love it here and it definitely feels like a home away from home now. Not 1 thing I would change about it.
Sandy B. from Locust Grove, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 We loved most of the experience but as a visitor the one thing we would have enjoyed is the local aumbiance that can only be recomemded by locals maybe a few discounts offered . Overall we could not have a better result. Thanks so much for the much need R&R
Jimmy H. from Flowery Branch, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2012 Our family have been staying at gulfside a couple of other times and we have always had a good experience. I would say that unit 503 has been our best unit so far. I was disappointed though with the lack of wifi availability from our room. To get wifi, I had to connect with other public locations that were not secured and weak signal. I highly recommend wifi for the unit. For a family that has kids with their ipod touch, ipads and lap tops wifi is a must!
A guest from North Manchester, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2012 Beautiful white sand beaches that were kept VERY clean. A slightly older building but was tastefully decorated and with lots of room. Loved the balcony and loved the rooftop pool. Would come back again.
Angie D. from Duluth, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2011 We stayed five nights at this condo and enjoyed everything about it. The view from the wrap-around balcony was awesome, easy access to the beach, very clean and loved the layout of the rooms and had everything we needed. Loved the pool on the roof. The property management company was very good to work with. Look forward to staying there again.
GEORGE L. from WARNER ROBINS, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2011 We really were lucky to get the condo at the Gulfside. It was perfect!! Having 503 made our stay so special. The last time I had taken my Mom to the beach we had stayed in that unit...that was her last trip to be made on this earth to the beach. We felt like she was right there with us. Also, our condo was the perfect one for my husband to walk my daughter out to meet her future husband, with it being a corner unit, and I honestly believe that the Gulf side has the perfect area on the beach for a wedding. It has so much space and the least amount of people to uproot. All in all I have to give this stay a 100. Brooks and Shorey were fantastic to work thru in setting this up. We have never enjoyed our stay more!!! Thank u Brooks and Shorey for all your hard work!! Sincerely the Lewis Family.
A guest from Keller, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2011 This was the second time we have stayed at Gulfside 503. It has an excellent view of the Gulf from the balcony. The condo has very easy access to the beach as well. The condo was very clean, spacious and has everything a family could want. I would rent it again!!!
Chance H. from Gonzales, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 Had a great time. This was our 3rd year being at this location. And its always great. Great location,always clean and we love the pool on the roof. Will definitely be back again next year.
Lauren S. from Tallahassee, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2011 My Mom, husband, and I visited your wonderful condo on Memorial Day weekend, 2011. We had the BEST time!!!! The view is amazing...Nothing beats the corner balcony - Except maybe your awesome rooftop pool! I got some wonderful photos which I plan to share on your B & S facebook page. The beach was just perfect. We want to come back again, and hope to very soon. Thank-you so very much! I have never stayed in a condo that nice!!!
A guest from Henderson, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2011 The condo was great, the view excellent!! The only issue that we had was the movie rental place was down at the end of the street in front of Fudpuckers, normally movies would not have been an issue but both of my children got too much sun and were in the room one day. Another was that I had paid for two additional chairs on the beach and had to take two from a nearby umbrella to be haggled by the sub guy that afternoon. All in all I would definitely stay at this condo again!!
A guest from OFALLON, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011 We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was everything we had hoped it would be. The area was wonderful and everything is so close. We will be back. I do offer one suggestion: that there were no cleaning supplied in the condo. I purchased windex and clorox spray and lysol wipes for general everyday cleaning. There was a large vacumn but a small hard floor vacumn and a decent mop would have been nice. When I stay in someone elses home I want to treat it as my own and general housekeeping is important over the course of a week. Thanks for the great vacation.
Great vacation for first time at Ft. Walton Beach,
lyle g. from Mammoth Cave, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010 Loved being beachside of course but there were no shops or restaurants in reasonable walking distance of the condo. We really have no complaints but if there were any, that would be it. Loved the condo and its size. Also loved the fact that we didnt have to pay for beach chairs and umbrella. Have always had to pay for them before if we used them at other condos.
Misty P. from Zachary, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 Please do not post this comment. There were a few problems. The garbage disposal and dish washer smelled like a dead rat. Dishes in the cabinets were dirty with food and bugs. I had to wash all dishes before we used them. Someone came to fix the garbage disposal but the smell was still there. Besides that, I liked the condo and LOVED the pool on the roof. I usually stay at the Summerlin but will change to Dune Point for the pool location. Hopefully, the issues we had was not the norm for Dune Point.
A guest from Bethel, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2010 Gulfside 503 was wonderful. Very clean and we loved the way the rooms layed out, with the bedrooms towards the back instead of right next to the living area. Will definately be back next year. Only wish is for a shady area on the roof by the pool.
Steven R. from Stanford, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2010 Gulfside 503 is a nice condo. On my next trip to the area I will be shopping for a condo with the master bedroom opening up to the beach.
Don & Marilynn K. from Onalaska, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in March, 2010 Enjoy staying in 503 Gulfside. Will return next year. Looking forward to a little warmer weather....enjoyable anyway!
Love this condo. Brooks and Shorey are great to work with!
Don & Marilynn K. from Onalaska, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in January, 2010 Everything in our condo has been perfect. (except the weather this year to start out, better than home!) Very clean and any concerns are immediately responded to. Good Work it is a pleasure.
A guest from Murfreesboro, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2009 My sisters and mom wanted a quick weekend away at the beach. Our trip was wonderful and the beautiful location, condo, view, etc. helped to make it that way! The Brooks and Shorey staff were the best. Thank you!
Jennifer B. from Beavercreek, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2009 Aside from a minor ant problem that was finally solved, it was a perfect place to stay. We didn't want to leave. The property manager and the condo president were very helpful. Really felt at home and the view was breathtaking. Will definitely be back. Our whole family enjoyed the trip including our 16 month old son!
Drew K. from Keller, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2009 The condo was awesome!!! It had a great view of the gulf with easy access. Very clean and it had everything we wanted! Can't wait to stay there again in the future.

Julie L. from antoine, arkansas recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2008 I have stayed at Fort Walton Beach every year, for a week, since 2004. This was the best condo by far that I have ever stayed in. Although this was not a trip that was planned for us, I am so glad that the person who chose this condo picked this one. The furniture was excellent in the living room. The kitchen was stocked with more than anyone would ever need for a weeks stay. The only thing it didn't have was a cookie sheet to cook a pizza on, but it had every other single thing that anyone could possibly want or need. The beds were excellent, even the roll away bed was comfortable. This is great condo and I would suggest it to anyone looking for a good place to stay the week. As a matter of fact, I hope to stay in this same unit again. Heck, I will bring my own cookie sheet. LOL
Rhonda F. from Broussard, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2008 We were so disappointed that our trip was cut very short b/c of Hurricane Gustave. We did have a wonderful two days that we were there. I only wish that we could have postponed it/rescheduled it to get the full benefit of it. We couldn't get any money back b/c the storm was not affecting Florida, but was affecting La where we are from. So we actually lost money...but the two days that we were there was fantastic. In the future I will ask more questions and about options in case this happens again.
A guest from Auburn, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2008 The dryer needs to be replaced, the air conditioner sounds like it's about to quit, the furniture was not in good just seemed like the apartment had gone downhill since we rented it last year.
Sherree S. from Martin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2008 This is the second year we have stayed in this unit. We love it! The view from the room is excellent and the pool is wonderful!
A guest from Loudon, Tennessee does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2008 location great, building needs updating, carpet very dirty, roof top pool dirty, balcony has very nice view, dolphins every morning.
Lee S. from Millington, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2008 We LOVED Gulfside Rm 503...Our stay was wonderful and so much fun. Two families with three small children and it was just like being at home. Everything we needed. Loved it loved it! Will definately use this condo again.
REBA L. from WARNER ROBINS, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2008 The veiw, the beach, the pool......EVERYTHING was wonderful!!!! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy our short time away from the rest of the world!!!!
Ronald B. from Columbia City, IN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 29 days in February, 2008 At best the condo was below average, dirty and the building was occupied by guest dogs (3). When I complained I was told that I should expect these conditions because it was one of the older buildings on the beach. All of this whould have been acceptable except I paid the same price as much nicer condos down the beach.
Leslie S. from Midland, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2007 We had a wonderful stay in this condo. It was very comfortable and very roomy! Morning coffee on the balcony was fabulous. Can't wait to go back again.
A guest from Smyrna, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2007 The condo is in a perfect location with an incredible view. We loved the rooftop pool. The decor is a bit dated in some areas and the kitchen could be updated with new utensils, cookware etc. but overall, it's a lovely place! In fact, we're bringing our grown children to Gulfside this summer!
A guest from Fort Payne, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2007 We have stayed here many times but may not be back because of the requirements for paying. Payment in full months ahead, NO refund if a serious event happens and we can't make it? And having to buy insurance that covers only part of the rental? We don't like it. Too bad, we liked staying there.
Sherree S. from Martin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2007 We enjoyed ourselves so have already booked for this year. This particular condo was wonderful and the pool on the rooftop was an additional bonus!
Susan T. from Houston, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2007 My family and I have visited resorts with Brooks, Shorey for the past four years. We have always enjoyed our stay at the facilities which were beautifully maintained. Spending quiet mornings watching the dolphins travel along the shore and fun family evenings playing games or watching videos (provided by Brooks Shorey, of course) are just some of the highlights of our trips. Thanks for all of the memories, Brooks, Shorey!
Tracy S. from MICHIE, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2007 We enjoyed our stay except for stairwells and elevator being less than clean (smelled dank and didn't look like they were cleaned daily). There was maintenance going on when we were there (painting, elevator work which set off fire alarms). After our vacation we were contacted repeatedly asking us to return a movie rental pass card. We didn't use the movie rental card while we were there and we certainly didn't bring it home with us (why would we, it would have been of no use to us).
