Debby B. from Spring Hill, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 The condo was beautifully decorated and well maintained. The TV's were great. It didn't have a DVD player in the living so we had to have a movie night in the master bedroom. The buildings elevators screeched all the time. Quite unsettling. All in all it was a wonderful vacation.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a lovely time in your beach front accommodations at the Gulf Dunes 615! Sorry to hear about the noisy elevator we have not had anyone else mention this so we were unaware of the situation. However we will definitely send our vendor to investigate the issue and we hope to see you return to recapture another entertaining family get away!
A guest from Russellville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 We've stayed at Gulf Dunes before but first time in this condo. It was nice and comfortable. Pretty " beachy" decor. Probly only thing missing for me was a large mirror in master bedroom for hair and makeup. No big deal though. Would definitely stay again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. It is wonderful to hear about your return to the pristine beaches of the Emerald Coast! We are pleased that you were so comfortable and content during your stay in the Gulf Dunes 615 and we look forward to making all of your future visits just as lovely!
A guest from Grenada, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 We loved every minute. Thank you for letting us rent your condo.

It is our pleasure to ensure that you are comfortable and enjoying yourself during your Gulf Coast get away, thank you for visiting! We are thrilled to hear you had such an incredible time during your stay at the Gulf Dunes 615 and we hope that you are able to revisit!
Donna A. from St. Peters, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2016 Everything was great. This is the second time we stayed in the same condo and when we return will ask for this same one. We were unable to use the television or VCR and could have used an instruction sheet.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so glad that you had a wonderful stay for the second time in GD 615, did you notify the front desk regarding the issues with the TV and DVD player? We are always available to help, we could have our maintenance team send someone up right away to fix the issues. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
A guest from Kennesaw, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 The unit was great. Couldn't ask for a better stay. We did have one mishap when the microwave went out one evening but the Brooks and Shorey staff had it replaced the next morning resulting in no problems for us.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for staying with us at the Gulf Dunes, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to take care of the microwave in a timely manner. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Reviewed by: Michael O. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2016 Words could not do justice to how amazing our home-away-from-home was. This condo was perfect in every way, shape and form! We were so very pleased with the accommodations! We have 3 children, so them being able to have their own bed was great, and I love how it really felt like we at home. We loved the free DVD rental machine, especially after long days out. Opening the master bedroom balcony doors at night made sleeping an ultimate dream while listening to the beach and taking in the moonlight gulf. The management team and neighbors were all very exceptional! We do travel a lot, and I have to say, this has been one of the best places we had ever stayed in. It really surprised us because this condo was cheaper than others we were considering before booking, but it blew everything else out of the water when we arrived! The location, view, management and set-up were all spot-on! We definitely will look into returning again in the future!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. WOW, Thank you so much for this FANTASTIC review, we are so unbelievably happy that you had such a wonderful stay from start to finish, we agree with you on all points, the view is exceptional, and the condo is perfectly decorated for a vacation to the beach, we so look forward to seeing you again soon, and remember all return customers receive a return customer discount, so please call us to reserve your condo for your next vacation to the beautiful Emerald Coast.
Timothy W. from Taylorville, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2015 This condo was everything we Cold ask for. The view was second to none. It had all to amenities you need. The only draw back was the shower water pressure. They were working on the water so maybe the issue is resolved. Other than that I would recommend this condo.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your wonderful review, we hope to see you again soon.
A guest from Lebanon, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 We were pleased with everything about the unit and complex. We found everything we needed during our stay. The view and location were very nice. The area was very quiet and we felt very safe. Anything we needed outside of the unit/complex was just within minutes driving in the car. Within walking distance of the unit were 3 gift shops, a Tom Thumb market and a Waffle House - just a little further walk (about 20 minutes) was the pier and 'Boardwalk' area.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thanks for the awesome review, we love to hear that you had a such a great stay and hope to see you again soon.
MaryAnn H. from Dayton, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 Very relaxing. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the gulf and saw a variety of marine life. The shopping in the area was nice and the restaurants were WONDERFUL!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for such a wonderful review, we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again soon.
Dannetta D. from MURFREESBORO, TENNESSEE recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 We had a great time and having a clean and comfortable place to stay made that happen. GD615 is a very nice, spacious condo. We were very very happy with our stay and are already planning on coming back.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We love to hear reviews like yours, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again soon.
A guest from Dover, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2015 This condo was substituted because the one I originally booked was near construction. I was impressed that the management (Caroline) was looking out for us like that. We felt at home and every moment was breathtaking. This was out first time at the beach and we were hooked. The views, the sounds, and the comfort of the condo made this the best vacation we've ever had. We are definitely coming back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, we look forward to seeing you again very soon.
A guest from Fairborn, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 The furnishings were very nice and comfortable. I loved the fact that the condo wasn't cluttered with excess furniture. We had plenty of seating and did not have to navigate around unnecessary stuff. This also made the condo seem larger. The view of the Gulf was spectacular. We had our coffee on the deck and watched the sun hit the water in the mornings.Two things I would change/fix: (1) Trade the lousy toaster oven for a toaster! (2) Oil the sliding door in the LR so that it isn't so hard to open and close.I would definitely stay here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for answering our online review, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, we will take care of the sliding glass door and also mention to the owner about the toaster oven. We hope to see you again soon.
Jake M. from McKinney, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2014 This was a great condo, on the beach, very convenient, quiet, clean, view is amazing. The kids loved the movie rentals, I loved the air conditioning, kept the condo very cool! Kitchen was much bigger than I thought, ice machine came in handy! Full size washer and dryer was a big plus. The only negative I have is the "green slime" in the ocean on this part of the beach, from what we heard from the beach chair service guy, Christian, this happens every year. The kids didn't care, but it was kind of gross. You had to go out about 100ft to get away from the June Grass they called it. This would be the only reason we wouldn't come back. But we still might, everything else was perfect.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for such a wonderful review on this condo, we agree that it is a great place to spend your beach vacation, we feel the same way about the June Grass, the amount varies from year to year, some years we have hardly any and others it is a little worse. We hope that you give a area another chance and look forward to seeing you soon.
A guest from St. Peters, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Everything was great we did not have any problems. Enjoyed everything and the beautiful view.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you very much for taking the time to send us this wonderful review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Gulf agree this unit is amazing and has such a wonderful peaceful view. We appreciate you staying with us and look forward to seeing you again on Okaloosa Island!
A guest from Napoleon, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 My family of 5 had a great experience And would love to go back!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for answering our review, we are so glad that you had such a great experience here at the Gulf Dunes and hope to see you again soon, let us know you are a return customer next time you book, so that we can apply the return customer discount to your reservation.
A guest from Ruth, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 Our vacation experience was over the top. The staff was beyond friendly. The Gulf Dunes 615 was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. My little girl loved the purple colored couch. The beds were very comfortable. Also, the photographs on the wall were amazing. I am a hobbiest photographer and I really enjoyed looking at them. The cabinet was stocked with Don's Seafood glasses. Absolutely my most favorite place to eat. We often take a drive to Hammond to indulgde in the fried shrimp and Jacked up Oysters. The Aligator in the hallway was a hit with my 2 year old son. He loved to growl at it. Everything was perfect. I have been coming to Ft Walton Beach for 15 years and have stayed at Gulf Dunes for the past 5. I loved this unit and hope it is available when we book our trip next June. Had a great time!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for such a wonderful review, we are thrilled that you enjoy staying at the Gulf Dunes and that you keep coming back, we will see you next time.
A guest from Plano, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 This my families second time to stay at Gulf Dunes. The property is really nice & located right on the water. The property is very family friendly. It is also very easy to get to & has easy access to pretty much anywhere in the Destin/Ft Walton Beach area.The only minor complaints I have are as follows: There was really no comfortable place to sit. The couches looked to be old, not comfortable, & did not smell very good. Probably time to replace them. The grill area was nice but needed to have grill scrapers attached. All the grills were dirty.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We appreciate your feedback. The grills do get cleaned on a daily basis by our common area cleaners. If these had just been used this may have been the reason that they were not clean when you got to them. Summer is a busy time and the grills are used regularly by guests. We hope that we will see you again in the future!
Alexander B. from Atlena, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 Great expertise, very clean, had some rain but it did not spill the trip. I strongly recommend this unit. The owner takes pride on thus unit, very well kept.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Gulf Dunes and we will pass on your kind words to the owner.
Donald D. from Spring Hill, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Overall wonderful time. Condo does need some sprucing up, as in carpet cleaning, and sliding doors to balcony are getting in bad shape, but had a blast and would definitely return in the future!
Marie K. from THE WOODLANDS, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Although the furnishings and appliances are outdated, the condo was comfortable and served our needs. Complex maintenance needs to be more responsive. A drain by the pool was clogged for days - nasty! One of two elevators did not work for days! However, the location on the beach is amazing! Loved the view of the beach facing the water!
Carmen H. from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 We've been staying at the Gulf Dunes since 2008, and this year (2013) was our BEST VISIT EVER!! We have always been completely satisfied with our stays, but this year managed to be even better than the absolute perfection we've come to expect. I look forward to many more wonderful family experiences with Brooks and Shorey at the Gulf Dunes. Thank you for your dedication to absolute perfections.
A guest from Ashburn, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2013 The Gulf Dunes 615 was more than expected. Took my younger son to visit my older son and his family. My two grandchildren stayed a couple of nights with us and we had great fun on the beach, playing games in the room and visiting some local attractions. The two bedrooms and bunk room were perfect for us. Next time we visit, we will definitely try to reserve this property.
Betty M. from Iuka, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 We had a wonderful time and the Gulf Dunes was better than we expected.The only thing that I would recommend is handicap bars in the tub and shower. I walk on a cane and it was hard for me to take a shower because I didn't have anything to hold on too. Otherwise we were happy. Beautiful view!!!
A guest from Chaska, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 I expected the pictures on the web site to be be much nicer than the condo. Actually I thought the condos looked a little questionable on the web page...BUT we were pleasantly surprised - it was nicer and cleaner than a high end hotel. It was roomy and in a great location. I was impressed there were after hours check in instructions and the instructions for vacating were clear. I gave the management 3 stars because they certainly won't go out of their way to help you, which we're not used to. We would absolutely recommend this unit to anyone that had 4+ people in their group. Can't beat the view!
A guest from Indaniola, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2012 Condo was in medium condition - sofa and loveseat are hard as a rock and no springs are left in them! TV in living room would not work we had to use the one in the bedroom - we had a lot of rainy weather otherwise the tv wouldn't have been a concern. Carpet in master bedroom was lumpy ? and had a smell. Otherwise condo was mostly clean and we had everything we needed.
A guest from Pinehurst, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2012 I spoke to the representative at the desk before we left about the leaking water faucet in the kitchen. I alsotold her that the tile floors and the carpoeting were rather dirty. This includes the throw rugs in the kitchen and baths. I am not a pickey person, but I do think that the floors and carpets need to be cleaned. The soles of my feet were black when I went in my bare feet.
A guest from New Orleans, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 This was a great location. There were no crowds, and all the Destin attractions were a short drive away. The only complaint would be that the unit never got really cold even with all doors closed and curtains pulled to block the sunlight. Also the unit was a little dusty in some places., which was a little unnerving given the cleaning fee that was charged. Overall, this was a good location and would consider returning here.
