A guest from Athens, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2016 My family had a good weekend stay in this condo.. Everything was very nice. The main problem, we didn't stay long enough.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your AMAZING REVIEW! We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope next time you can come and enjoy our beautiful paradise for a longer time! We look forward to having you stay with us again!
A guest from Pulaski, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2016 We enjoyed the spacious room however there were a few things that could help stay. There wasn't a lot of water pressure in each shower and it took a few minutes for the water to get hot. Besides that everything else was perfect!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. It is wonderful to hear that your overall vacation experience was very close to perfect. We agree that one of the perks to the Surf Dweller condominiums is that they are so spacious and have a really large beach front balcony to view the Gulf from. We will be sure to report the issue with the water pressure. We hope that you will be able to come back to stay with us again and indulge in more vacation fun and relaxation on the Emerald Coast.
A guest from Mc Kinney, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 We really like this place. The place is very clean. We like that the whole unit floor is tile, not carpet.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Tile flooring is definitely a great perk, we are so pleased to hear that you were so fond of the Surf Dweller 502 and hope that you will keep us in mind for your next gulf front retreat!
Valter D. from Joplin, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 The apt had everything we needed

Michelle S. from Dunlap, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 we had a great time everything was beautiful we only had problem with people above us making noise late at night for couple nights and they were throwing water balloons a guests and peoples cars but other than that we had great time we loved it.

A guest from Bristol, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 Our vacation was great. The only thing the co do was lacking was a few extra blankets. Other than that it was wonderful.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful time at the Surf Dweller. There should have been an extra blanket in one of the closets, unsure if you had a chance to check or not? We sincerely appreciate you taking the extra time to submit such a positive review and look forward to providing you with many more incredible gulf coast vacations to come!
A guest from Columbus, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2016 One word to describe! Awesome. Just as soon as you walk in the door, the view takes your breath away. Great balcony! Nice furniture inside and on balcony. Beach chairs set up everyday you are there. Free DVD movies. Elevator close by. Park as far left to the building as you can. Elevator left front corner. When you get out unit just steps away. You will spend most of your time on the huge balcony or sitting on the beach. Bedroom awesome view also. You see the great photos posted. Well it is much better in person. Great walk in shower for master bedroom. Nice bed also. We will be staying again. Fair price, great location, great views! Do not pass this one up. You will not be disappointed!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for such an amazing review! What a great compliment to Surf Dweller 502 and Brooks and Shorey Resorts! We truly appreciate it! We are so happy that you were ably to enjoy the amenities that we provide, that the location of the condo, and the condo itself were all so perfect for you. We do agree that there is very little better than having such a nice large balcony to sit on and look straight out at the beach and the Gulf! We hope you will be able to come back and stay with us again in the future!
A guest from Englewood, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2016 This was our second year visiting the area with Brooks and Shorey and both experiences were wonderful. Everything is well organized from start to finish. No complaints at all and we are already excited for next years visit.

Jim D. from Livingston, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2015 This is a very well equipped condo. It has plenty of cooking utensils,glasses,and silverware. The beds were very comfortable probably the best I have slept on in any condo. My granddaughter loved here room and bed also. The 2 chairs and umbrella on the beach was a good perk.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so happy to hear that you and your family had such a wonderful stay while at the Surf Dweller and especially in unit 502, we hope that you come see us again very soon.

Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your great review! SO good to know that you enjoyed your stay and liked the property. Yes - come back again soon, we look forward to having you.
Jimmy S. from Manchester, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 We have stayed 4 or 5 times with Brooks and Shorey and always in Surf Dweller. This is first time in 502 and very unhappy with condo. We are not complainers; but this needs to be worked on. Some things we did not even use; so could be more wrong. The guest bath the shower door needs replaced. When you slide door to get in it is stuck and other door comes off track. Master bath has electrical problem with light, it would go off and on sometimes and the night before we left it would not turn on at all. I feel these are things that should have already been known about and been fixed. They did not just break. Owner needs to fix.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you very much for taking time to fill out the online review! We only wish that you would have called us during your stay to report the issues you had mentioned. Maintenance would have been on their way to take care of it for you. Thank you for letting us know, we have already called these items in and they are in the works. We hope that you still enjoyed your stay and had a good time at the beach. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
A guest from Raglang, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 We loved our stay. We have stayed at the Surf Dweller last year and decided to stay again. The condo is very large. You have plenty of room. The only problem we had was it didn't come with extra toilet paper, no washing machine detergent, the dish washing machine spelled. I would give the place a 5 star...just wish we didn't have to go buy those things.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for being a loyal Brooks and Shorey Resorts customer, your feedback is also appreciated, There are starter supplies provided for your stay in the condo but not enough for the full duration of your stay. We will also get the washing machine looked at. Thank you for letting us know.
A guest from Portageville, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2015 We loved our condo! It was clean & decorated with a beachy feel. It was located right beside the beach. Our bedroom was amazing! The bedroom with a king size bed overlooked the beach with ceiling to floor patio doors leading out to a great balcony. We even seen dolphins early in morning while drinking our coffee on balcony! The condo was very well furnished with everything you need. Overall we had a great vacation!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Perfect vacation had by all! Thank you so much for taking the time to complete our online questionnaire, we hope to welcome you back again soon!
A guest from Enterprise, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 Wonderful spring break vacation with my husband and our 4 children. It was right on the beach, beautiful, relaxing, and memorable. My family loved it and can't wait to go back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We look forward to seeing you back at the Surf Dweller very soon!
Erla S. from Huntsville, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2014 We have stayed here several years before. The décor has changed somewhat but everything was quite comfortable and easily accessible. It was especially nice to have a walk-in shower (I am handicapped). I wouldn't mind renting this unit again next year. I have been staying at the Surf Dweller for the past 15 years and like most units.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review, sounds like you have found your perfect vacation spot at the Surf Dweller! The units are nice and spacious and the walk in shower is certainly perk. We hope that you will stay with us again. Be sure to call us to make your next reservation, we would be happy to apply a return guest discount!
A guest from Knoxville, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 This unit (SD502) has been updated and is very nice. However, when we turned the bed down, there was blood on the sheets and the mattress pad was down at the foot of the bed. Whoever was in charge of cleaning this unit did a horrible job of it. As it was after midnight, we didn't call the rental company for clean linens. I washed and dried the sheets and mattress pad myself (this made it very late before we could go to bed). I was very concerned that the mattress and pillows did not have full covers on them (I know this is the owners responsibility, not the rental company). The mattress had a pad that was crinkly and made noise every time you moved. There were ants in the bedroom and on the balcony; the floors were dirty, especially in the bathrooms. The coffee pot was caked with old coffee. We were very disappointed in the condition of the unit and it affected our vacation. We will not rent with Brooks and Shorey Resorts again. We did not contact them about this because we did not want our vacation interrupted with them coming in and re-cleaning and de-buging the unit - that should not have been necessary. We expected the unit to be clean and bug free.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for completing our online questionnaire and bringing your issues to our attention. We understand that you did not want to be interrupted during your vacation, however always please call us to advise us so that we are able to escalate to our head of housekeeping and determine how this could have happened. We hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Susan C. from Newcastle, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 The best Condo I have stayed at and the View is wonderful. The Rental Experience was the Best Customer Service .... Excellent!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful five star review! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Surf Dweller. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!
Debra K. from Beaver Dam, KY - Kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 The room was very clean and perfect location! The girl that was there during my check in/out was very sweet. It was a very good experience for our first family vacation.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you very much for your great review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and the condo and hope to see you again very soon at the Surf Dweller!
Vu P. from Cypress, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 Very nice view. Clean condo. Relax and convenient location. Will return.

Reviewed by: Cusonjia D. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 The condo was clean and well stocked. We enjoyed the view, the beach chairs and the balcony. Fort Walton was a great beach to visit. The only thing I would change is all the mirrors in the bedrooms. Makes it a little hard to sleep at night.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! Glad you enjoyed the condo and the view! Thanks for your comment about the bedroom mirrors, we will definitely mention that to the condo owner. We hope to see you again very soon!
Rhonda P. from Kingsport, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 You couldn't have ask for a better unit. Bigger than I expected great experience only thing is pool should be ocean front. Thanks for a great week
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your online review! We are very happy you had a great experience! Yes, the Surf dweller condos are exceptionally large! We hope to see you again very soon in Fort Walton Beach, FL!
Carolyn G. from Athens, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in May, 2014 Our stay was one of the best we have enjoyed over the past 5 or 6 years. It would have been just a little better with queen size beds, but we are not complaining. Thank you for the wonderful time, we enjoyed every day.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review! We are SO happy this was one of the best stays you've had!!! That's always very nice to hear! We hope to see you again very soon at the Surf Dweller!
Paul W. from Roanoke, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2014 this is a great place, the room was excellent, beautiful beach, quiet area. the only reason not giving 5 stars on everything was that the pool was closed for painting the last 3 days of our stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The pool is now open again, we have been notified by the management company. We hope to welcome you back to beautiful Okaloosa Island again soon!
Beautiful and very nice, BUT. . .not handicapped friendly
A guest from Edinburgh, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 The condo was beautiful and very spacious! few minor things like chain on fan not working and towel holder very loose, that was fixed fast! LOVED LOVED LOVED the balcony! the main thing I didn't like was the location of the pool! I'm at the beach and I would like to see the beach while I'm laying out, also my mother is elderly and needs to use a walker so it would have been easier for her to enjoy the view if the pool would have been on the gulf side! I know I chose this place! lol
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again soon.
A guest from Galion, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013 Our week at Okaloosa Island was the most relaxing vacation we have experienced in years. The beach is absolutely wonderful. We are used to going to Myrtle Beach, but I have to say that Okaloosa Island beach is so much better. It's not only beautiful, it is also very quiet and relaxing. But, on the other side of that, just 10 minutes down the road, in Destin, are all the restaurants and shopping and activities you could want. The Surf Dweller condo we used was very neat and clean, which is a must for us. We have stayed in many VRBO condo's, but this is by far the best. We loved watching the dolphins each morning while having breakfast on the balcony. The Dolphin Cruise was terrific. We are so looking forward to going back.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! Rememmber to call and make your next reservation... We will be more than happy to apply a returners discount.
A guest from Haughton, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 We had a great stay. The location was perfect and beautiful! The only thing I would have changed is it would have been good to have a few more sample items, for example a roll of paper towels.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Our housekeeping department leave a starter roll of toilet and Kitchen roll to last you until you have time to get to a store. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back again soon!
Len S. from Newburgh, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2013 This is a great condo. The decorations are very tasteful, it is clean, just a great experiance. We have stayed here befoore and are going to book again for next year.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank youi for your kind words, we are glad you enjoyed your vacation at The Surf Dweller, Remember to call our office to make your next reservation, we would be happy to apply a returners discount!
Mike C. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We had a great time, the condo was beautiful, location, weather everything was great! Hope to stay again next year! Thank you!
A guest from Winfield, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 This is our second stay at Surf Dweller and we really enjoy the quiet atmosphere. The beach is not crowded and great for little ones.
A guest from Jenison, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 This was our first time renting and hd a great experience. We enjoyed our stay and all the amenities this condo offered. The only issue we had was the condo was under construction right outside the balcony and we had workers working all day everyday making lots of noise. Overall everything else was better than we expected
Paula M. from Tipp City, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013 The condo we rented was beautiful. Our only problem was that after a 13 hour drive we arrived to find the condo was not cleaned. Upon calling the reality company we were told they would send someone over. Then we got another call saying they weren't in charge of cleaning the property so they would just be dropping off towels and sheets for me to clean the rental and someone would be by the next day to clean. I was not happy and told them I did not drive 13 hours and pay this much money so I could clean someone elses mess. To my surprise the cleaning lady showed up within 15 minutes and cleaned. They also refunded my cleaning fee. After thie initial problem the rest of the stay was great.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out this review! We apologize for the inconvenience at the beginning of your stay and we are glad it got resolved in a timely manner to your satisfaction. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again in Fort Walton Beach, FL.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 My only suggestion would be to update the colors and decorations. I had children and had to put way several flower arrangements and breakables. The master bedroom closet wasn't big enough. Otherwise, great experience!
A guest from Lawrenceburg, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2012 The layout, furnishings, overall appearance and maintenance was very good. The few small issues we had were: A kitchen sink faucet handle that broke on the next to last day; wireless router that never worked which limited the quality of internet connection (big issue because I'm a pilot and needed it to maintain a watch on the weather and file a flight plan). I also saw a large roach the morning of our departure in the kitchen bar area. I realize insects are a big problem in FL, but that's not something you want to see !! Overall I feel those are issues very easy to overcome and we'd stay there again.
Pat C. from Hartland, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 Enjoyed our time at this unit very much, would love to come back sometime. The view was fantastic, loved the beach and the water. The movie rental was a nice amenity as were the Dolphin cruises. The only thing lacking was a way to recycle cans and bottles. We ended up carrying them all the way home in our car to Wisconsin. This is a beautiful unit and it was a very comfortable, relaxing stay.
A guest from West Fork, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 This was my family's first time to the beach and doing the whole rental thing and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The condo was absolutely amazing! We will definetly be doing this again.
A guest from Fort Smith, Arkansas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 We loved our stay at SD 502 for four nights. The unit was large enough for 6 adults to spread out and not feel crowded. The kitchen was better equipped than most home kitchens. The view from the balcony was wonderful and it was on the beach. I would recommend this unit to anyone with three or more people in their party.
A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012 Our family just stayed spring break 2012 at the Surf Dweller and the best words to sum up our stay...wonderful and fabulous! The condo was so nice and comfortabk. The kitchen was furnished GREAT! We could cook or prepare everything! Such a treat to be able to cook and have what you need! The beds and furnishings were great too! Love the new TV's and beds and kitchen!This condo has beach on one side and the pool and tennis courts on other side....great for small grandchildren to go to both with no traffic or long distance. We would definitely recommend this unit and condo! We hope to return very soon! LOVE IT!
Lee M. from Stratford, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 As usual Brooks and shorey did a great job on our rental and took care of all the details, so we were very surprised to get to our unit and find that it was not up to the usual top notch condition that we had grown used to, some of the glass tables had a film on them,there was dust over many items, specially in the utility room. A dirty bra down besides the washer. And the kitchen had a lot of grease all over the cabinets,appliances,and the range hood, numerous bulbs burned out thruout the unit, spots on the carpet, mainly in the bedroom, and spills on the tile floor. We cleaned up many of these items ourselfs, so we knew that they would come up. We hope that this is an isolated incident. We would respectfully suggest that you have a conversation with your cleaning staff, thank you
srikanth n. from jackonville, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011 I am very satisfied with my visit. I wish your front desk was more helpful. I also wish you could place the amenities package along with the late checkout package
Helen R. from West Memphis, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2010 I really loved the condo. My two daughters joined me mid week and they were impressed with how neat and clean everything is. Everything was just right, except I could not get the tv and cd player to work sometimes. But then I am older and not good with electronics.I would recomment this rental to anyone
A guest from Newburgh, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010 We called about the deadbolt not working and was told: "Someone will be over" and no one ever came. We would have felt more secure if the deadbolt worked and the sliding doors to the balcony would lock. The place was generally clean, but there was a large amount of dust on the fan blades. The fan in the master bedroom was very loud and we decided not to use it at night. It was thoughtful of the owners to provide books to read and VCRs. We were generally happy with the unit, and besides the above would probably re-book in the future.
Lori M. from Madison, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2009 I stayed at Surfdweller and rented thru Brooks and Shorey on the recommendation of my siste- she stayed there a few years back. She was with me on this trio and was very disappointed as well. The unit was not clean- I had to wipe everything down and disinfect before I felt we could really settle in. The beds in this unit are a joke! they are old and extremely uncomfortable- this place definately not worth the money. Not sure who contracts out the umbrella and chair guy but he was very rude to us and less than helpful. My five year old accidently locked one of the bathroom doors and shut it, my wallet, medicine etc were all locked in there with no way to retrieve it. I called the office at about 3:00 pm on that Saturday and was told that nobody from maintenance could come and unlock it until after 8:30 the next day!! Thankfully we managed to to get it open ourselves but this is simply unnacceptable. I normally stay in Gulf Shores and rent condos that are much cleaner and with much better service for less money. I won't be staying with you again.
Janette W. from Cape Girardeau, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2009 The elevators leave a lot to be desired, but everything else was really nice and I would stay there again.
Catherine G. from Moss Point, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2008 The condo was great, however, the style seem to be back in the 1970s. The view was beautiful. The king bed was a little to low.
Laci B. from Paulina, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2008 Surf Dweller was beautiful, the location and view was amazing. The only complaint I would have was that I couldn't get the internet connection, but that was of low importance to me. It was so relaxing and nice. Thank you for a great vacation!
Stephanie W. from Woodstock, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2008 The Surf Dweller is a great property, however number 502 was not so great. The beds were extremely hard. I had to go get 2 foam toppers in order to sleep. There were too many breakable decorations for my kids to get into. The good things were that, every cooking item you would ever need was there as well as many movies and games. I love Brooks and Shorey and will recommend them and use them again, but not this unit.
Barbara D. from Norco, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2008 The only negative I can possibly think of is that the refrigerator did not cool the food as it should. Other than that everything else was perfect. We plan on renting this unit next year for the entire week!
