Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We sincerely apologize for the issues that you encountered while here, we only wish that you had notified the front desk of the maintenance issues, we have maintenance on site to take care of any issues immediately. We hope to see you again, maybe in a different unit?
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. What an awesome review, thank you so much, we love to hear our guests feedback, and we are so happy that you had such a fantastic stay, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
A guest from Euless, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in July, 2015 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review and your comments. We are currently in touch with the owners about the updating needs of the condo. Glad to hear your family had a good time and we hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Beautiful Views, great location, convienent to Destin
A guest from Brooks, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 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 wonderfullyBalcony views are spectacular- overlooks the pool to the leftBeach service was very nice and convenientDesignated 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
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to answer our review, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and we appreciate your feedback, we will notify our maintenance department of the issues you encountered and have them corrected asap.
A guest from Lavaca, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for choosing us for your first trip to Fort Walton Beach, we are glad that you enjoyed your condo and hope that you come back again.
A guest from crystal springs, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 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!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for such an awesome review, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.
A guest from Cookeville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your feedback, we will definitely take care of the issues that you found, we look forward to seeing you again.
A guest from Ringgold, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2014 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your feedback, we will make sure the owner is aware of your suggestions. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit.
George W. from Senoia, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2014 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so thrilled that you enjoy staying with us at the Gulf Dunes. Thank you for such a wonderful review and we will see next time.
A guest from Colombia, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014 I am from Columbia, Tn. I enjoyed my stay.

A guest from covington, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 We have stayed in GD 307 before and had no complaints and none this time. The view is worth everything, easy access to the beach. I can keep a eye on the girls from our balcony and feel very safe doing that from the 3rd floor. Complete kitchen and very well stocked with dishes, whatever we needed, plenty of towels. Love the dvd rentals, when we weren't on the beach, pool, they were busy watching movies. I love the beach and could not get enough. The condo is showing a little wear, rugs, foot stools, but very clean. Love it and hope to be back soon. Thanks for the beautiful and relaxing stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so pleased that you had such a wonderful stay while at the Gulf Dunes, we agree with you, we love the beach too!! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
A guest from Helena, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Marianne at the desk is wonderful. She helps me every year and always is a pleasure to deal with. I will not call anyone but Marianne for beach condo.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Mr. Billings, I will be sure to relay your wonderful comments to Marianne! Thank you for your comments, we agree, Marianne is an asset and manages the property very well. We appreciate you staying with us at GULF DUNES and look forward to seeing you again!
Amanda L. from Georgetown, Kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and we will definitely pass on your suggestion to the owner of the unit. We hope to see you again soon.
Suzanne S. from Marion, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 We have stayed at the Gulf Dunes for 4 years straight. We have stayed at other properties on Ookaloosa Island but this one fits us perfect. Wonderful views with the white sand beach. It is very peaceful and relaxing. Looking forward to year 5 visit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you taking the time to write this review. We appreciate your loyalty as a return guest with us at Brooks and Shorey! We agree with you in that Gulf Dunes is an excellent place to stay on Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach, Fl. We definitely look forward to having you back with us again!
Pamela T. from Fayettville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in Ft. Walton at Gulf Dunes. Great location! Great condo! LOVE the high top table with chairs on balcony. Great view. This was our second stay in 307 and we would definitely stay there again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Be sure to give us a look forward to hearing from you!
A guest from Valparaiso, IN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 9 days in February, 2014 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.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to fill out our review, we will pass along your suggestions to the owner of this unit. We hope to see you again in the future.
Reviewed by: Stephani C. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 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.`
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for writing this review... we are always pleased to hear how much of a good time people have whilst staying with us! Thank you for choosing Brooks and Shorey Resorts for your Florida vacation!
A great stay. Were there 5 days and could have stayed a month.
A guest from Lakeview, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013 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.

A guest from Slidell, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 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!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Kathy, we loved hearing how much you enjoyed your stay with us, and look forward to seeing you again in the future and remember to let us know you have stayed with us before so we can apply the return customer discount to your reservation.
Laura W. from Euless, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2013 super great time!!

A guest from Liberty Township, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We have had a great experience 2 yrs in a row at the Gulf Dunes. The staff is very professional and I would recommend this place to anyone.
A guest from Fayettville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013 Spent three nights in Condo 307 at the end of April and first of May. Loved the condo, the view from the balcony and the location. Would definitely stay here again! The office personnel was very nice and helpful.
A guest from Woodlawn, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 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:)
A guest from Covington, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 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.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 Only a couple of small things that could be fixed. A loose tile and a toilet that rocked. This condo showed great attention to detail and the bed was very confortable. Had a very relaxing vacation.
Kayla H. from Hardy, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 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.
Water pressure Kitchen was very low. Hard to wash anything
A guest from Jonesboro, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 Had a great time on the beach everyone was very friendly and helpful. Room was very well decorated. Just add some bbq tools to use! Great place!
Suzanne S. from Marion, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2012 This is the 3rd year in a row that we have stayed in the same condo #307. Obviously we like it.This was my 5th year with Brooks and Shorey Resorts and have never had any problems.Beach is clean, water is clear, very laid back and no problems ever.Yes, we will be back.
Great View, Peaceful and Quiet, Relaxing, Close to Many Fun Spots
Bernard S. from Grandville, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 29 days in February, 2012 We always enjoy our stay here just out of the busy area. We are only minutes away from everything we want to do.
Robert and Patricia N. from Doraville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in January, 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.
John T. from Perry, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2011 Although in Fort Walton for work, I enjoyed the stay at the Gulf Dunes. The entire staff was very professional and the receptionist was delightful. I could not have asked for more! Tahnks!!
Robert and Patricia N. from Doraville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 1. Shower/tub needs a hand hold(s). This could be a liability issue. My wife has a bad knee and it was difficult (and frightening) to get out over the tub side.2. The sliding door to the balconey is draging and needs to be adjusted so the rollers are effective.3. WE SHALL RETURN!!! We have reserved this unit for the month of January.
Dave T. from Sumerville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 Every thing went above expectations. The only problem encountered was a crabby check in person (maybe just a bad day)but she was pleasant on checkout. Will stay there again. Dave Tackett
Laurie G. from Nashville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2011 We had 7 days of blissful relaxation during this visit. Our condo was fabulous...beautifully decorated and comfortable. Thank you for a second amazing stay in Ft. Walton!
A guest from Hot Springs, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2011 This was our third year to stay at Gulf Dunes. When you find something good, stick with it!

Jerri C. from Jasper, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2011 Veronica and AJ at the front desk were a tremendous help in anything we asked! Cleaning staff was exceptional! We will definately be returning for many years to come for a couples get away and a family vaction! We will proudly recommend Brooks and Shorey and their wonderful staff members AJ Lawrence and Veronica Davis!
A guest from Marion, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2011 We have just returned from our 4th vacation trip on the Okaloosa Island I Ft. Walton Beach, FL.If you are looking for a clean quite beach this is the place to be. It is mostly visited by families and have always had a quite day on the beach. Shopping and other interests are only a 10 to 30 minute drive away. We have booked with Brooks and Shorey each time and have never had a problem even when we were late on arrival once. We have all ready started to plan our vacation for next year at Ft. Walton Beach.
Thomas C. from Hampton, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 18 days in February, 2011 Generally you get an outstanding rating from me the past 10 years, however, this room reeked of past cigarette smoke. All attempts to rid the smoke was not successful. Additionally, I think the $35 open door fee is unnecessary if you had spare keys elsewhere such as at the Brooks Shorey office. That said, if I had issues with AC or Heating or other structure issue after 5PM, would I also be charged a fee to get some out to check the issue?
Suzanne S. from Marion, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2010 We had a very enjoyable time. This is the 3rd time we have been to Ft. Walton Beach and do plan on returning. We love the relaxing atmosphere and the location is great.
A guest from Fond-du-lac, Wisconsin recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2010 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.
A guest from Carmel, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2009 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.
angela h. from auburn, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2009 iron leaks, bottom sheets were on bunk bed already, not clean, only top sheet & pillow cases supplied folded. cute place, will stay again. loved the free beach chairs.
A guest from Nashville, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2009 We stayed in Gulf Dunes 307. It was a wonderfully decorated and clean condo. The balcony was great. We will stay there again!
Tina & Jason F. from Magnolia, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2009 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!
Elizabeth R. from Quitman, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2009 This was a beautiful place to stay. Our family had a wonderful time and look forward to coming back again. It was a time we needed to be together. It was truly a renewing of the souls.
Vincent L. from Trenton, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2009 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.
Mike W. from Pinson, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2009 Great Place! This is the reason we have stayed for our last 6 visits to Oakloosa in less than a year. And hope for many more visits.
Mike W. from Pinson, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2008 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.
Jackie V. from Fort Walton Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2008 We celebrated our daughter's 18th birthday at this lovely place. The condo was gorgous, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the beaches .. amazing. We would definately recommend this property.
Deonne M. from Flowery Branch, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2008 Overall trip was great with a few exceptions. Upon attempting to check in (early) we were told that the unit was vacant and had been cleaned, but just needed to be checked before being released. Of course we still got in the unit earlier than published check in time, so not that big a deal. In refenece to the beach chair service, the two guys that worked this service the 4 days we were there got the chairs and umbrellas set up very quickly each morning, but each day began taking the equipment down earlier and earlier. Also, we didn't get down to the beach until later in the day one day and found 3 chairs and 2 umbrellas that were vacant and all grouped together. As we had 3 people - 2 adults and one 3yr. old - we sat in this grouping. After approx. 10 mins. - if that long - both guys approached me and began to chastise me for taking 3 chairs and 2 umbrellas, and said I should not have moved the chairs and umbrella. When I stated that the grouping was already set up when we got down to the beach, they proceeded to tell me 3 times in total that only a 2 chairs and 1 umbrella set was available per booked unit. I finally told them that I wasn't going to be criticised for soemthing I didn't do, and they then took 1 chair and 1 umbrella and folded both up and took back to the storage boxes.
A guest from trussville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2008 Great service and friendly staff. Okaloosa Island has the most beautiful beach in the world. Unit 307 at GD very nice with that perfect "tropical" touch. Really set the mood for the perfect vacation. Thanks to all the staff and Brooks and Shorey for a great timeGreg and Donna
Kellie D. from Helena, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2008 We enjoyed out stay at Gulf Dunes unit 307. It had everything we needed. The property is well run and very nice. We liked the opportunity to have free use of beach chairs with umbrella on the beach. We were looking for a condo that had a pool and a gulf front view and a short walk to get out on the beach. Gulf Dunes had all three plus covered parking (bonus). Booking our vacation was easy and the agents were all very nice and helpful. We want to say thank you, we enjoyed our stay and will definitely come again!
Perfect view, perfect location and great weather what else could one ask for???
A guest from Napoleonville, Louisiana recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2008 We had a great time in Ft. Walton. This condo was great!! We are trying to see if there is any time for us to sneek another beach trip in before my children start school. we would surly recommend this condo to anyone that needs a little piece of paradise. We all can't wait to go back!!!
A guest from Knoxville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2008 The condo was very clean, bright and colorful with very funky (in a good way!)wall colors throughout. Our third floor condo had a perfect view of the beach. We spent a lot of our time sitting on the balcony which is always in the shade. The bedroom is located in the back of the condo so we decided to take the twin bunkbed mattress and move them to the living room floor so we could go to sleep to the sound of the ocean waves. We walked (about a 10-15 minute walk via the sand) to the boardwalk daily to eat. The Publix grocery store was a five minute drive away and had many organic foods. We hope to come back again next year!
A guest from Flinstone, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2007 We came with friends and were able to stay next to each other. Everything from the beach to the pool to the room was great. We will come back.
