Stanley C. from West Milton, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 From checking in to checking out our experience was an enjoyable one. The condo (411) was as beautiful in person as the pictures. Staff was friendly and helpful. Ground were clean and chair service was great. It rained 4 out of our 7 nights but we were still able to use the pool and our condo was large and well stocked so we had plenty of room and supplies to play games and cook. Cant wait to come back. Oh and the elevators were having some difficulty but it may have been from the power outage we endured one night.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. It is great to hear that you were so happy with the service you received during your Gulf Dunes adventure, your vacation experience is our top priority, we want you to have the best time at the beach regardless of rain or shine! We hope to see you back in 411 again next summer!
A guest from Jacksonville, AR does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2016 We were very disappointed, the condo looks old and not very well kept; not at all like the pictures on the website. The furnishings need updating and the refrigerator is rusted. We have stayed at 2 other condos with Brooks and Shorey and have been very happy, we will not stay at 411 again unless it's renovated. I would not recommend this condo but I would Brooks and Shorey properties.

A guest from Euharlee, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 The beach is always great in Fort Walton. We love it there. But the rental was not so nice. The #1 issue was the floors. They were so dirty! We all had black feet if we walked around barefoot. There were clumps of hair floating around on the floor in one bathroom. The dresser in the kids room was a joke. All the drawers fell out if you touched them. Some bathtubs had drain problems . And to top it off, there were water issues at Gulf Dunes. With 2 small children we need to have water. We only found out by a sign in the elevator that there would be no water for a few hours one day. What if I had not been to the elevator? We would not have known until we needed water. That was a lazy notification!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We apologize for the problems that you encountered, we always strive to make sure our units are maintained up to standard, we only wish that you had notified us of the issues you encountered, we could have had them all taken care with in a very short period of time, as for the water cut off, we understand your concerns, however the water was off for 15 minutes due to an plumbing issue. We hope that you consider staying with us again, maybe next time in a different unit?
Billy S. from Lebanon, Tn. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 Condo was very clean and furnishings were nice. A few things need attention! There is a water leak in the bathroom on the right coming from the unit upstairs unit, the coffee maker is not working correctly, the door lock on the master out to the balcony doesn't lock, the master bath had alot of mold in the shower and needs updating. All in all the place was very nice and we would like to come back again!!!

A guest from Mt. Carmel, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 Overall the condo was nice, my biggest complaint would have to be the cleanliness (or lack there of). It seemed dingy, the master shower did not appear to be clean at all. The entire condo needed to be dusted, and the dishes in the cabinets were dirty (we actually had to wash them before they could be used). Location was good, we saw dolphins off the balcony, and the beach view was beautiful. I wouldn't recommend the condo to others UNLESS it had a good cleaning!

William D H. from Corryton, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in October, 2013 We loved staying in a Gulf Dunes property. This one was perfect for our needs and everyone who visited loved the condo and the location. We are have booked a Gulf Dunes property again next year!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to fill out our questionnaire, we look forward to seeing you again next year.
A guest from Corryton, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in September, 2013 The condo was comfortable, clean and in a perfect location. The only drawback is it has too much furniture for our family. If our grandchildren came with toddlers I would be afraid they may hit their heads on the coffee table if they fell. other than that it was fabulous. The walk in shower and raised commode in the master bath is just what a senior citizen needs. Made our vacation so much nicer. Beds were very comfortable and loved the two recliners facing the gulf.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for taking the time to fill out our review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again next year.
Harriet B. from Metairie, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 Great condo, nicely decorated. The kitchen was stocked with everything (gadgets, pots, serving dishes, utensils, etc.) you need. Will definitely try to stay in this unit again next year.
A guest from Chicago, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 Nice location, unit relatively clean (except trash can which smelled), way to much furniture for the size of the unit. Good pools and beach service.

Angela C. from Oswego, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We were very pleased that the condo was exactly like it looked in the pictures. Clean and all the amenities we needed for our stay. 2 families shared the condo and we had a lot of room for all of us.
Pam W. from Hoover, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2013 Office rep was wonderful. Need more chairs at pool area. There were not blankets for each bed. I don't like to use the spread as a covering. Maintenance person was timely and very provessional./

A guest from Boiling Springs, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in September, 2011 I like Gulf Dunes but would not recommend room 411.The beds were awful and the room was very dusty. The floors were so dirty your feet turned black if you didn't keep your shoes on. I will stay at Gulf Dunes again but not in room 411. The bulky furniture is not toddler friendly.
We stayed at 111 and 411 and had some issues with getting into 111 and got in almost 2 hrs after the check in time only to find
A guest from Benld, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2011 The bathroom in the 2nd king bedroom was dirty with toothpaste on the sink from the previous guests. No toilet paper in the bathroom. Clumps of hair and dirt on the floor in the dining area. Overall we made the best of it and had a great stay. The location was awesome right on the beach. 411 was clean and the decor was top notch. Would definetely stay again.
