This is the 5th time we have stayed at this property and it is Wonderful. We did stay in a different unit this time and there were a couple of issues that were not as good as our last unit. The couch was VERY UNCOMFORTABLE & the diswasher door did not fit properly so we were afraid to use it.

Nice place to stay
Thomas E. from Sussex, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
Our stay in Gulf Dunes 508 was satisfying overall. The unit was clean and in good shape. The two bedrooms were large enough and the bunk room came in handy. The appliances were adequate but not outstanding. The dishwasher needs a bit of a nudge to begin it's cycle and the refrigerator's inside drawer and the beverage holder fall off easily. The balcony furniture was better than expected although the inside couch and chairs look nice but are very uncomfortable for sitting. All in all, this unit met our expectations and we would in no way would hesitate to stay here again. The on-site staff were extraordinarily helpful and pleasant to deal with. Great experience.

Relaxation! Relaxation! Relaxation!
Carolyn H. from Crab Orchard, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013
Gulf Dunes 508 was among the nicest, if not THE nicest condo in which we've stayed along the gulf coast. Our overall family vacation experience was very good and weather cooperated beautifully, including Mother Nature's free fireworks display overlooking the gulf the evening we arrived. Pier and surf fishing falls a bit short in comparison to Gulf Shores. With hubby's past service in the USAF, a visit to the museum was one of the highlights of the week.

Great place, only lacking in a couple of areas
A guest from Bessemer, Alabama recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013
The layout of the condo was awesome, view was georgeous, elevators and trash chute were convenient. Only a few changes I could recommend from our family experience, the sofa and chairs in the living room were in no way comfortable, we didn't use the sofa bed I'm just speaking of seating. The kitchen was lacking in a few essentials and the most important thing to my family is the comfort of the mattresses, these were much better than most condos we have stayed in but we have a hard time understanding why the beds and living room seating would not top any condo owners list of important items. I would say overall it was a wonderful stay and this is strictly my opinion, just trying to be honest.

Gulf Dunes 508
Mark B. from Wartrace, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013
The kitchen and both bathroom rugs were nasty. We folded them up and did not walk on them. The bathtub drain in the guest bath was clogged. When we took showers we stood in water. I think the wall art and lamps, tv's, etc should be dusted more often. You except the rooms to be clean when we check out, we except the rooms to be clean when we check in.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
Thank you for taking the time to fill out our questionnaire, we apologize that the unit was not up to standard. I did not see anything in our information that this was reported to us at the front desk regarding the clogged up bathtubs, our maintenance department would have taken care of this immediately. We hope to see you again soon and want to make sure you have a fantastic time while staying with us in any of our units.

Great place to stay! Quiet but only 6 mi from Destin.
A guest from Cincinati, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013
Over-all it was very satisfing. Out of the 3 condos that our group rented, I liked ours the best. Very nicely decorated. Very comfortable bed in the master room! Great being on the 5 th floor! Very nice table and chairs on the deck! Really nice having the 2 beach chairs and umbrella and the guys setting them up were very accommodating to groups. The condo complex even had rafts,noodles, boogie boards etc. to borrow. Only recommendations: couch was very worn down in the middle and only one person could sit on it because everyone would roll to the middle! Baseboards were not very clean And the throw rugs in the kitchen and bathroom did not appear to be clean so we rolled them up out of the way! The property was very clean and the management was very helpful.The location is great because it's not as congested as Destin but if you wanted go to Destin, it's only 7 miles from the condo.

LOVED THE LOCATION
A guest from NORTH VERNON, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
For the most part we loved our stay on Okaloosa Island. Although we did not need to use the bunk room because we only had four people staying in the condo, it had a strange odor and the carpets throughout the condo were not very clean. The living room furniture was very uncomfortable. We loved the area and the staff was very friendly and professional.

We are sorry that you were not completely satisfied with your unit, in the future if you let us know of any issues that you find, we will make sure that everything is done to correct them.

Disappointed at the NASTY unit we stayed in at Gulf Dunes!
A guest from Dallas, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012
I NORMALLY love Gulf Dunes and have stayed there for 10 years BUT the unit we stayed in this time was extremely dirty. I'm not sure if I'm willing to come back to GD's because of the nastiness of the unit. I've always called it "my favorite place to stay." I have changed my mind. I had to vacuum and sweep laundry room, kitchen and balcony as soon as I came into the unit. Bathroom mat was light in color and showed the nastiness of the mat. The balcony door broke and they were unable to fix it while we were there so it made it very inconvenient to go out to the balcony. I understand that they couldn't get any one in there to fix it fast but i would have loved for them to offer a minimal discount for the inconvenience. They were extremely good about getting someone up to the unit fast to fix the broken wireless box. I did not complain at the time about the dirty unit but i hope someone will see this and make sure the cleaning company does their job correctly. Overall, the place just seemed dirty and the couch sank in and was very uncomfortable. I'm very disappointed that I experienced this because this always used to be my favorite place.

Gulf Dunes Condo
Gassia G. from Memphis, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2011
The stove had oil splattered all over it and the washing machine had a ring of oil from the tanning oil in the suits washed throughout the years. I had to scrub the washing machine down (went shopping for cleaning supplies), scrub the toilet, tub, etc. I did not use the stove or any aspect of the kitchen because of the required cleaning it would take. The pantry needs to be painted. It had a splattering of food, etc. on the inside of the pantry walls. Additionally, it was not vaccuumed. To be safe, I washed my linens before sleeping in the bed based on the condition of the other aspects of the condo. Some of the light bulbs were burnt out as well. Overall, the location and staff were fabulous, but the cleanliness of the condo was horrible.

? Was the vacation rental in a great location?- Okay location: would like to within walking distance to shops, places to eat etc ? Was the home clean and in good shape?- The condo was nice, however seemed in need of a sprucing up. Carpets were dirty, fixtures were half broken, and things seemed to be in the process of falling apart. ? Was the vacation rental management staff helpful? Not really ? Did you have a good overall stay? I had a great time laying on the beach, but I don't think we will stay at gulf dunes again.

Overall our stay was great. There were a few exceptions. The dishwasher did a lousey job cleaning which was probably due to the lack of water pressure through out the condo. The re-tile job they were doing near by was very disturbing. Even though quite hours were from 10:00 PM to 10:00 AM the construction work began at 8:00 in the morning. Really made it hard to sleep in.

Nice Condo
A guest from Carmel, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011
Nice, clean condo with a beautiful view. Had plenty of room and we enjoyed the area ... it was close enough to some places to walk, but isolated enough not to have a traffic burden. Very nice.

Our stay was fantastic with the exception of the unit we have been in for 3 years;508, was booked to a different party for 2012 without giving us the opportunity to book it for a longer period of time. We have always understood that if someone wanted to stay longer they would be given the first opportunity. We would have appreciatiated a courtesy call to at least have given us that option. That has been my only complaint this 2011 season.

Randy C. from Byron, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2010
Upon checkin, we were not told about the parking spot designated for our room. It would have been nice to have known about it before the day before we left. Also, the bed in the master bedroom was uncomfortably hard and the sheets kept coming off during the night. But, overall, the stay was great!

Winter at Fort Walton Beach; Gulf Dunes, unit 508
Hugh and Mary H. from DETROIT LAKES, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 12 days in March, 2009
We would suggest the unit replace the couch and chair in the living room and also the master bedroom mattress. Also the cleaning staff needs to pay more attention to the bedding, in particular the bedspreads and mattress pads. They were disgusting when we arrived. I want you to know that when this was brought to the attention of the front desk they were taken care of immediately. I would also like a better gym facility, maybe located near the tennis courts.

One suggestion is that the cleaning staff pay close attention to the bedding and the cleanliness of bedspreads, pillows and blankets. Our bedding was stained and not appealing for our first night here. I would also suggest a more complete gym set up. Jan from Brooks and Shorrey was very helpful.

Gulf Dunes Condo 508 - We love the Destin area and vacation there every year, but will not stay at Gulf Dunes again.
Darra B. from El Reno, OK does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2008
Here's why we won't stay there again. We arrived at noon and were told that the condos were still being cleaned but they would get ours done right away since we were already there (4:00 is check in time). Short story is after spoiled food, sun burned kids, RUDE desk clerk, we finally got in to our condo at 6:00. We were told we could complain to the Manager the next morning..we were there for 5 days and never once saw anyone admitting to being a MANAGER. And we were not the only ones looking for one. Plus the utility room smelled horrible!

Gulf Dunes 508
Larry M. from Wyandotte, OK recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2008
Overall we had a good time but there were some things that were wrong. One of the full size beds in our room was broken and we were told it would be repaired but it was never really repaired so it was pretty uncomfortable and hard to sleep on which is not fun when you are on vaction. The microwave did not work part of the time but it was fixed during our stay where it would work good enough to get by. This part was possibly a mistake on our part but we thought that we had been informed on the phone when booking that you could use the complementary tickets all at once per night stayed, instead of one per night per night stayed. Another event was when we tried to get our beach chairs and umbrella from the kid working he tried to charge us $21 dollars for the three even though we told him we were staying at the gulf dunes he told us you still had to pay $21. My son finaly got the chairs and umbrella later after he went up and got a copy of the agreement. Someone had also dumped a bunch of hermit crabs out by the walkway where you wash off at by the pool and the stench was pretty bad the entire stay. The master bedroom was awesome and the view was great. I don't want you to think that we did't have a good time at all because we did but these are some things that could have been improved on. Especially the bed that was the worst.

we really enjoyed our stay at Gulf Dunes. We liked being able to park our car in a secure covered garage, and easy access to the beach. Our view was fantastic and the condo over all was clean..spacious..and had all the items necessary to our stay there. It was close enough to stores but far enough that you felt like you were out of the confusion of traffic and noise. Great place...would go again.

It took us several trips to unload. Also our parking space was filled with flower pots when we arrived. Overall was good place to stay, no major problems. Rates good and plenty of room for our family. Good family place

Family Vacation
Tina F. from COLLINSVILLE, OK recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2007
Our stay was the best vacation.We choose to stay on the beach/pool all seven days. We only left to eat dinner out. It was the most relaxing vacation we had. The location is great. If you chose to go out there is a lot to do. I liked it better than Destin because it is not as crowded and if you want to see Destin it takes ten minutes to get there. It was even better since we shared a condo with our closets friends and their kids. We had such a great time we are all planning to do it again, but this time we will be getting out and about with the kids.

Melissa W. from Bivins, TX recommends this property.

We stayed 3 nights in Gulf Dunes 508 in August 2007. The resort property and the condo were both fantastic! Gulf Dunes is in a convenient location with easy access to a variety of restaurants, grocery stores, and gift shops.

My mother-in-law, my mother, and I all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My daughters (ages 12, 7, and 2) and my 12 year old daughter's friend loved the beach and the pools. We had a fantastic girls only vacation! Gulf Dunes is only about 10 minutes from Destin, which has a great outlet shopping mall.

The resort is located directly on the beach. It was so nice to be able to walk right onto the beach each morning and rent chairs and umbrellas (one beach setup was free with our condo rental). We went back to our condo and ate sandwiches for lunch and let the 2 year old take a nap. Then, we went back and played on the beach later in the afternoon. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The beach and view were gorgeous!!! We can't wait to go back!
