A relaxing vacation
A guest from Greenwood, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2016 The location is perfect. This property is on a wonderful section of the beach that is very walkable in either direction.The unit has a great floor plan and the condition of the furniture were all wonderful and as described. the unit was very clean upon our arrival. We were pleasantly surprised with the beach toys, boogie boards, chairs, and umbrellas available.I would suggest some additions to the property:1. coasters as you could see marks on the wood from peoples drinks who didn't use paper towels as we did.2. drinking glasses as there were a million coffee cups, 8 small drinking glasses, and 2 wine glasses.3. bakeware as I baked enchiladas in a bread pan which was rather difficult. An 8" x 11" pan or two would be helpful.We would return to this property in the future.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Gulf Dunes truly is one of those places where the kids have as much fun jumping into the waves of the Gulf as they do jumping into their bunk beds! The floor plans of these condos are perfect!! So glad everything was clean for you, our housekeeping team is the best, we appreciate your kind remarks. Thank you for the suggestions!! We love hearing feedback from our guests. We're in the middle of deep cleans and inventory stocking, we'll see about the kitchen inventory in this condo make sure it's up to standards. Gulf Dunes affords exquisite waterfront condos and is a place you'll want to spend some time to take a break from your reality. Come back soon to Okaloosa Island.
A guest from Union City, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2016 Our rental experience was fantastic! We had absolutely no problems what so ever, the front desk employees were very helpful and nice and the beach was awesome.

Reviewed by: Joan W. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 We stayed in this rental for three nights...Saturday, 7/9 through Tuesday morning, 7/12. The rental was beautifully decorated, felt homey and had plenty of space. We enjoyed the deck...ate breakfast out there every morning. We wish it was one floor higher so that we could see the waves hitting the beach, but I think the décor and the set up well made up for that one thing. We could still see the umbrellas on the beach and the ocean...we could easily tell how crowded the pool was (and it really wasn't too noisy being right above the pool...they always cleared out right at 10pm). LOVED having a washer and dryer...came with boogie boards, sand buckets and toys, an extra umbrella and beach chair...two king size beds, two twin bunk beds, and a pull-out sofa...TONS of space! The location was perfect too! We drove up to Destin, but it's SO crowded up there!!! We loved FWB.

Lorie P. from Loudon, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 Our arrival and getting our keys after hours was great. However it would have been nice to have information included with keys like the code to bathroom by pool. The rental unit was nice. The pool was not cleaned as their was leaves in bottom drain during stay and sand.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to answer our review, we do understand that the pool bathroom code is needed, we will take your suggestion under advisement. We will also check on the status of the pool cleaning service. We do hope we see you again soon.
Kelly V. from Baldwin, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 This was our second year staying at Gulf Dunes. We really love the location and beach. We stayed in a different condo last year and unit 104 is equally nice. Very clean and conveinent being on first floor. Condo is located right above pool which was noisy at times but overall very great condo. We will definitely be back every year in September. The weather was so nice.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review, we are so happy to hear that you had such a great time while staying with us at the Gulf Dunes and look forward to seeing you again next September.
Tamela F. from Richland, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 We booked at Gulf Dunes to have access for a beach wedding. We had a large party, and there was more than enough room to accommodate everyone. The view was spectacular. Very clean, tastefully decorated, and the staff at the Gulf Dunes front desk and Brookes and Shorey were very sweet and answered all questions promptly.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for taking time to fill out the online review! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay and liked the condo. Thank you for all your nice comments and we hope to see you again at the Gulf Dunes!
A guest from Raleigh, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 Beds were comfy, the living room was comfy. It was nice having the pool and beach right there. Your balcony is RIGHT over the pool so you'll be able to hear everything going on down there, but it didn't bother us. We enjoyed the chairs set up for us and the beach was beautiful. Even got to watch the fireworks before the 4th. It was a great stay!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay and the condo and that you had a great time! We hope to see you again at the Gulf Dunes!
Neil S. from Saint Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 We enjoyed our stay very much, the rooms were very clean and comfortable.T he staff at Brooks was very accomidating and helpful with any plans we made. The only concern I would voice was that we where a little to close to the pool,it was loud when trying to relax on the balcony during early evening hours. The later parts of the evening where good out there because after dark other vacationers did respect pool hours and were very quiet. All in all I will be back just a couple of units away from the pool.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for the wonderful review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay, we do have other units that are not directly above the pool, give us a call when you are ready to book again, we can offer some suggestions.
A guest from Acworth, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 We had a great time visiting Fort Walton Beach and loved Gulf Dunes 104! We really enjoyed the beach chair service, the lovely balcony and beautiful white sandy beach. The condo was perfect, beautifully decorated with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Our only negative insight is the pool being so close and the noise when you are out on the balcony.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to answer our review, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again soon. We do have condos available that are not right above the pool as well :)
A guest from Sparta, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2015 Very nice place! Convenient and many amenities included. Probably would have preferred to be a little more distant from the pool
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer our review, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again, maybe in a unit a little farther from the pool.
Theresa D. from Brighton, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 Third year we have stayed at the gulf dunes. A different room each time. Gd104 this year was by far the nicest room. Very updated! Close to the pool but wasn't really much of an issue. We will definitely stay here again. Brooks and shorey was alway helpful!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and in this particular unit and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Sharon C. from Fairhope, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 Enjoyable but view somewhat restricted because of dunes. Would stay in higher up room. Sofa has no back support.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to write this review for us. We will put through your comment about the sofa to the unit owner but we are glad you did have a comfortable stay.

Just like living in our own place! View was breathtaking. Loved that we were close to pool and beach walk. Restaurants were close by when we didn't feel like cooking.

A guest from Dacula, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 We enjoyed the unit 104. It was convent to the beach and the balcony over looks the pool. The staff were very nice and helpful. We liked having beach chairs and umbrella set up everyday that was a plus! It was perfect for 4adults and 2 kids, ages 2 and 4 yrs .

A guest from Albany, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 We loved everything about The Palms and Unit 104. We will definitely be coming back here. The woman at the front desk was so friendly and helpful. She was amazing. The unit was wonderful. We loved the layout. It was spacious. We came with another family and it had enough room for each family to have privacy when we needed a break from each other. I loved the decor and the kitchen. The balcony was large. I also loved the fan that was in the closet in the master suite. It was great. I'm going to buy one at home. Thank you for a pleasant stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Mindy, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at the Gulf Dunes, we look forward to seeing you again.
Mary P. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2013 This was our 3rd stay at Gulf Dunes 104. The unit is beautiful and there's plenty of space, even for a family of 5. We'd had issues in 2012 with the front room having a funky odor, but this time it was clean as could be. The kitchen is well-equipped, the beds and pillows are really comfortable and you can't beat the beautiful view. Our kids call this 'their' beach house, and I'm sure we will be back for many years to come.
A guest from Pasadena, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 The staff is awesome!!! Very friendly and helpful. The property is close to everything, without the noise and crowds of Destin beaches. We will be back next year!!!
Pam W. from Knoxville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 We are repeat vistors to Condo 104 at Gulf Dunes. It is our favorite spot to visit and we are always very pleased with the location and quality of your condo. My brother and his family stayed in 309 and were equally as pleased. I will try to rent 104 every year for our family vacation.Thank you for all you do to make our vaction wonderful!
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 Air conditioner froze up and unit was not cooling efficiently during first 2 days of vacation. Not miserably hot but warm. Overall enjoyed our stay. Roomy and clean.
Lelia W. from Florence, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 The power went out during the night but was restored quicker than it would be at your home. Boardwalk to beach was shorter than other places we have been to.
John S. from New Orleans, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 We were pleased with our room and the property. Only complaint would be about the fitness room. Very limited with only 3 machines and one of these was broken.
A guest from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 I have stayed in many Brooks and Shorey properties, but this is by far one of my favorites. I have to work in the area often and it is so nice to stay in a place that has really comfortable beds and has a kitchen that is fully equipped with anything you could need. I will stay in this condo again...I loved it!
A guest from Clinton, Arkansas recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2010 Our unit had a few issues. Our internet was not hooked up, there was very limited hot water, the kitchen faucet leaks, the faces on two of the drawers kept falling off, the dryer didn't dry the clothes. We have stayed several times at Gulf Dunes and never had those problems. Our overall stay was fine though. Have a great day!
Suzette R. from Warren, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2010 The Oil Came in Like Cow Patties on the 3rd day & when beach was closed so was our pool, someone had an accident. Do feel we should have a discounted rate, Maybe BP will step up & make things all better SURE HOPE SO I REALLY FEEL FOR EVERYONE & EVERYTHING
Brandon W. from Tullah, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2010 GD104 is a nice stay although the rooms were dirty, (found a pill on the kitchen floor) and only half the outlets worked in the bedroom but other than that its a great family stay. My wife loved how close it was to the pool so she could sit on the balcony and watch me and the kids play from only a few feet away. I would stay here again.
A guest from Adel, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2009 I have always enjoyed our stays - I think we are on our 5th year with Brooks and Shorey. The condo @ Gulf Dunes (104) was very pretty and we enjoyed the condo itself. However, the last night of our stay was interupted @ 2 am by naked, drunk people-screaming obsenities and swimming in the pool! I was furious! My husband recently had surgery and was still recovering - he definatly needed a full nights sleep. I went down stairs to find security. He was making them leave the pool. I wish I had called the police. These people were staying in condo 103 so the yelling and loud drunkness continued for another hour. Needless to say I was unable to sleep for most of the night. Skinny dipping is indecent exposure to other adults - but children were exposed to these people - that is considered child abuse and in some states is a form of child molestation -I was disappointed the security guard did not call the police. If the police had been called the people in the condo above us (with kids) could have pressed charges. I informed the front desk the following morn. regarding the people in 103 - she said she would call their rental company, I sincerly hope she did.
Property beautiful, this partifular condo not up to par!
A guest from Kaufman, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2009 We have stayed at this property before and loved every bit of it. This particular condo was set up mirrored from the other one we had stayed at. It was awkward to get around in. The doors opened into one another. The master bedroom never stayed cool so we had to use the ceiling fan, only thing in the room that wasn't spotless, and the showerhead was broken. The pots and pans were for a small families use, so it was hard to cook meals. The "leather" furniture was worn and uncomfortable, especially in shorts and sandy conditions. The location was wonderful though. Right above the pool. Beach is beautiful, we walked to the boardwalk (looks farther than it really is). Loved the property, will try to choose a different condo in the future.
A guest from Lawrenceburg, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2009 Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Gulf Dunes. I wish I had a unit farther from the pool. There were children swimming after 11:00 pm. That wasn't a problem but there was screaming and hollering along with the swimming. I wasn't sure how to contact management to make them aware of this. Next time if we stay with Brooks and Shorey I will be sure to stay as far from the pool as possible. I wonder if things wouldn't have been better if there was 24 hr. on site management.
A guest from Laurel Hill, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in January, 2009 Took awhile to find the office to check in since it is not marked, had a movie card but didn't have directions as to where to get movies. Need a little more clear directions,but overall the stay was great and we will be doing it again thank you.
Teresa H. from West Monroe, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2008 Our vacation was wonderful. Everything was clean and great view of the tranquil sea!!! That is until Gustav landed then what a wondrous site with the waves crashing in. It was breathtaking. We felt safe and secure. The condo was lovely and the location was great. We especially enjoyed the amenities . My husband is an avid golfer and really appreciated the free rounds of golf. I loved the luxury of the beach chairs and umbrellas. Since we were closed in Sunday night and Monday, the movie card really came in handy. Thanks
