Gail P. from Scottsville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 My only complaint was the bed in the master bedroom. It is sorely in need of a new matress.

A guest from Clinton, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016 I was in town for my daughter?s national cheer competition (THEY PLACE 1ST & GRAND CHAMPION ? ) at the end of April 2016. This was my first time ever staying in a condo and I must say the staff at Broods and Shore Gulf Dunes made my stay one to remember. At the time of check in the property manager Marianne greeted me with a huge smile and she had all of my information ready as soon as I walked through the door. The room my family and I stayed in was VERY CLEAN and we had PLENTY of space to move around and not fill crowded. The kids especially loved the balcony and staying right on the beach. The property was very quiet and travel friendly. I loved the room so much that I am already looking into booking another condo with this property. If you are looking for a condo and aren?t too sure about it trust me it?s worth every dollar spent. THANKS AGAIN GULF DUNE STAFF.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Congratulations on your daughters achievements! We are ecstatic to hear that our staff was so hospitable during your time at the Gulf Dunes! We are also glad that your family was so pleased with this unit and will continue to strive to ensure that your expectations are met during your time on the beautiful beaches of the emerald coast!
A guest from Danville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 The condo was very nice, we were pleased with the appearance of the condo. Loved the keyless entry. Amazing view from master bed room when waking up!! Online pictures and info described the unit and property accurately. Info I had received from management was helpful and accurate. This property was exactly what I was looking for!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. WOW what a AWESOME review, we are absolutely thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and had such a wonderful experience with us at the Gulf Dunes and we agree 100% the views from the balcony is AMAZING!! We hope that you come back and see us again soon.
Mark R. from South Bend, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 We were here after thanksgiving, 2015, for 3 nights. The balcony has a nice view of the ocean and is spacious enough to eat on / hang out on. The room itself is tastefully decorated without anything too large or in the way, which was nice for our 3 and 1 year old kids to run and toddle around in. The bunk room was good for the 3 year old, however, the top bunk (that we didn't use) would be maybe tough since there is a sprinkler head with a cage over it centered a couple feet over the mattress (i.e. we wouldn't feel good with our kid up there). the kitchen had newer appliances and was nice, and was fully stocked for drinking and cooking. the living room was nice and had good media equipment. the master bedroom and 2 bedroom were fine too. loved the location.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Gulf Dunes and especially in this unit, we are glad the little ones were able to enjoy the condo too, we hope to see you all again soon.
A guest from Highland Park, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 The unit is wonderful. The view is spectacular. So wonderful to spend every evening on the balcony and looking out into the Gulf. The master bedroom faces the Gulf-what a wonderful way to wake up. We also enjoyed the assigned parking spot. Great location on the beach.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for the wonderful review, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Gulf Dunes and especially in this unit. We hope to see you again soon.

A guest from HUNTSVILLE, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 This was the third time we rented at Gulf Dunes. The onsite staff was very good and the beach/chair service was great. Overall condo 312 west was nice and some of the upgrades (tile,kitchen) were good, although the bathrooms were dated and worn and need upgraded. The overall condition of the condo complex and pool area was average. The condo and pool area needs some upgrades. Most of the condos nearby had better pool areas (trees/sitting areas/pool service).
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer our review, we appreciate your feeback and suggestions and will forward them to the owner and the condo association, we hope to see you again soon.
Nichole P. from Henderson, Kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 We absolutely loved our stay at Gulf Dunes! Everything was exactly how we wanted it to be. The condo was clean and well equipped. Our kids loved having their own bedrooms and there is plenty of space in the common areas as well! The only thing I would say we didn't like was the masters bed was too firm for our preference but it was bearable. We would definitely stay at Gulf Dunes again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to answer our review, we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon
Had a great stay with a great view at a great location.
Clayton N. from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 We stayed over a weekend. The unit 312 Gulf Dunes was a very nice place. Kitchen was well equipped, nice big dinning room table, good TVs in every room. The master and living with a beach view was terrific. Third floor, not too high but high enough to see over the pool and dunes. This unit had covered parking which was nice. We had no problems at all with anything not working. Brooks and Shorey management was good too. We arrived at midnight but no problem getting in the room.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for such a wonderful review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us at the Gulf Dunes and hope to see you again soon.
Sarah T. from Decherd, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2015 My family and I along with my now husband's family all used brooks and shorey to book rooms for our wedding in fort walton. We were very pleased with your company and loved all of the extras included even tho we were busy and couldn't enjoy some of them. We will definitely be using you all for our future vacation rentals
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Congratulations on your wedding, you picked a beautiful location ! We are so glad that you had such a great time and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

A guest from Cumming, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 We have been staying with various brooks and shorey properties for the past 4 years and this unit by far meets most of our expectations (great view, location, good sized beds with bonus room of course).The check in was on time unlike with our previous stays.The minor flaws are the occassional clog in bathtubs, partly damp carpet in bedroom and dust in some appliances like tv (im a neat freak thats why i took noticed)anyway overall the unit was fairly clean,the cooking and cutting utensils were cuisinart and knives were ginsu. The kids loved the bunkbed room with tv. They enjoyed their privacy. I wish they would have a broomstick so that we dont have tovacuum few dirts on the inside and outside floor. I brought lysol wipes for the tv remote control and knobs which are sticky:( Thanks to Marianne for a prompt response to all our queries. Also, the onsite check in was so convenient which we were told they just do it in gulf dunes and pelican isle properties. The 1 designated covered parking was helpful for those with kids. We will definitely return to this unit. Rest assured that what you see in the photos is what you get with regards to space , furnitures, views.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Let me say thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review for us! We will definitely relay your comments about the specifics of this unit 312, to the owner, but we are so glad you loved GULF DUNES!

This property is an asset and we at Brooks and Shorey are so glad you were satisfied. Please give us a call when you are ready to come stay with us again. We look forward to seeing you AGAIN sometime soon!!
chance h. from gonzales, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 We had 18 people in our group and rented 3 condos in this building. Everyone had a great time. This is our 6th summer using Brooks & Shorey...we'll definitely be back!

Julie C. from Kingsley, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014 We absolutely loved our stay at Gulf Dunes. My entire family was thrilled with how close we were to the beach, the unit was so spacious and inviting. We are looking forward to coming back next year! My only negative was how cold the pool was, but other than that, I have nothing bad to say. Desk personnel was very nice, we felt relaxed and welcome. Great Vacation

Darrin M. from College Station, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 My wife and I came to Gulf Dunes to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Also, we had our second daughter four months ago and we were ready for a relaxing weekend by ourself. We were extremely pleased with the property and location. The condo was great and we will be trying our best to come back soon to this location. Thanks!

Amelia K. from Spring, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 We've stayed at the Gulf Dunes for several years (unit 312 for a couple of years) now when we visit Fort Walton Beach and we've enjoyed it. The beach is fantastic and the complex is nice. The staff is very helpful if you need anything. They also have the movie rental box on location now so you don't have to go anywhere else if you want to rent a movie.I would highly recommend the Gulf Dunes and I have to several friends coming down from the Houston, Texas area.We'll be back next year!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Amelia, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again soon.
A guest from Metairie, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 Overall was a great experience. Condo was convenient and at easy location to get to. Room was situated nicely in building; 3rd floor gave good view of the beach. Dishwasher smelled upon arrival but call to management got quick response; someone came and ran the dishwasher with bleach which cleared up the smell. Also, there was a dirty sheeet on one of the bunk beds. New sheets were brought but just left them; maybe could have made the bed but maybe that's nit-picking. The room was very nicely decorated and enjoyed our stay. Plenty of parking for our 3 vehicles. Would definetly recommend.
Dan M. from Arlington, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013 This condo unit is great. Nice layout with excellent beach access. Beach service staff is very efficient and the front office staff was cheerful and helpful. Would definitely use again.
A guest from Murfreesboro, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013 Third time staying with Brooks and Shorey, and we'd never go elsewhere! Three different properties and each has been amazing!! You can't go wrong if you're renting through Brooks and Shorey!
Sara H. from Owensboro, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 We stayed here this year on the recommendation of friends. We were very pleased. The condo is decorated with a beach theme and it is light and airy. Perfect location and quiet area. We will be back.
A guest from Pasadena, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 The staff was friendly and always helpful. The first condo we stayed in, the air conditioner broke and without us having to ask, the staff moved us to another condo. Location is also great close to everything without all the noise. We will be back next year!!!
Amelia K. from Spring, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 We have stayed at the Gulf Dunes for several years now and enjoyed it each time. We were in unit #312 this year and I would definitely recomment it. It is in excellent condition and has very comfortable furnishings. Overall the Gulf Dunes is a great choice for a relaxing vacation.
A guest from Smithville, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 water supply was lacking, while taking a shower you must remind others no potty flush, lighting in kitchen worked sometimes and sometimes not
A guest from Sumrall, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 Had a great relaxing trip! Easy check in and out, clean with great views! Close to everything! Will definitely stay again.
Beverly B. from Springfield, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011 Patio door in living room was broken. Entry door lock was extremely difficult to open. Water pressure for showers was nonexistent. Tub in master bath drained very slowly.
A guest from Lizella, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011 The property itself overall was nice but the condo that we stayed in needed a lot of work. The furniture was old and dated, the couch and loveseat was damp and smelled. The rugs were cheap and the bedroom carpet felt damp as well. The bed was a nice size (loved the king) but the mattress was hard and felt like we slept on a sidewalk. The walls needed to be painted, very tattered. Outlets and fixtures were not securely in the wall. The appliances were good (liked the microwave & washer & dryer) with the exception of the iron which did not work. The TV in the main living area was nice. We loved the location and the balcony views. All and all our vacation was great; just expected a nicer living environment for the price. We were there for seven days.
A guest from Cleveland, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2011 We have stayed with B&S resorts before and will do so again. However, this time we discovered that the iron in the unit did not work and called the office to get another. The manager apologized and said she would try to get one to our unit by the next morning, but we never heard from her again. So we ended up having to go and buy a new iron in order to press our clothes for dinner. Now we are waiting to hear back from the manager again, as my son realized that he had left his wallet in the recliner of the unit as we were half way home. We called immediately on Friday and she assured us that she would have housekeeping look for it and call me back either way. No phone call. I just got off the phone with the weekend manager and she has asked that I call back tomorrow as she can find no notes or record in regard to my request. I know this is a bust time but there needs to be better follow through on requests.
A guest from Oneonta, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 We were very pleased with ths unit, clean, convenient, good view. The sliding glass door needs repair, very hard open and close. Other than that, it was great. We loved covered parking, beach chair & umbrella and plenty of towels. The unit was very clean,spacious,tastefully furnished with lots of dishes. The kids enjoyed the bunk room.
Wendy D. from Toomsboro, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2011 The view was beautiful, just glad I had a maintenance man for a husband. He had to fix the master toilet several times because it would hang up, the breaker tripped in the master bathroom one night. The worst was the water pressure! You could not use water in two places at the same time. There were two bathrooms but you could not use them at the same time, nor the sink, dishwasher or washing machine. Gulf Dunes is a beautiful place, I just would want to check out the other rooms available.
Debbie C. from Belden, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2010 This is the first time we have stayed at Gulf Dunes and it was a wonderful experience! The rooms were very nice and clean. Most Condos do not have much in the way of kitchen ware but this condo had everything you could possibly need. The locattion was convenient and close to everything. We enjoyed the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella. We will definately be staying at Gulf Dunes again!
Barbara W. from Troy, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2009 I took this trip because my very sick sister wanted to come to the beach.From the reservation placement to check-out I have never had so many wonderful people to help me.They made our stay one we will always remember.Thank you so much.I will be back. Barbara Windham
Lajuana I. from Longview, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2009 This was our 2nd year at Gulf Dunes & we love staying there. Our only complaint would be the water, last year we had the Red Tide that really messed the water up & this year we had the June Grass/ or just algea that made the water not very pretty. But we can't blame that on Gulf Dunes, just mother nature! Anyway we had a couple of pretty water days, so that made it OK.
A guest from Port Allen, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2009 The staff was very helpful and the condo was well kept and very clean. The only issue I would say that I had to work out was with the complimentary chairs being an issue with our canopy. The guys who set up should be respectful and not set up other guests in front of canopies. They should place that guests complimentary chairs where the guest chooses without arguement. Other than that, everything went very well and our stay was enjoyable and I would highly recommend Gulf Dunes for families.
Debra P. from Huntsville, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2008 We normally stay in the Sumerlin, we decided to try something new for a change. The outside of the Gulf Dunes was much prettier than the inside. The rooms were small and the layout was not very functional. The master bath door and the bedroom door overlapped. The kitchen was not well stocked. Very few linens, only 1 kitchen dish cloth and 2 towels, only 1 wash cloth and 3 bath towels per bathroom. TV's were very small and only had a VHS player in the bedrooms. We could not rent VHS tapes anywhere. The only DVD player in the living room was broke and was not replaced for 2 days. The staff was very nice, but for the money I would never stay here again. We were so dissatisfied we went around to other condos and looked at their rooms to better educate ourselves rather than trust pictures again. The beach was Beautiful, the weather was Perfect, and we ate at some delicious restaurants, so the vacation was wonderful. Thank you, Debra P.
I have been staying at the Gulf Dunes since 2002 and this is the first time that I was disappointed with the condo. The carpet
Amelia K. from Spring, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2008 The matressess seemed old and the entire condo smelled really bad. We had to buy multiple aire fresheners to make it bearable.This was my first time to rent a unit managed by Brooks & Shorey, I do hope they are not all like this one. I would not stay in this one again until it has been renovated.
