Welcome to Gulf Dunes Resort, on beautiful Okaloosa Island. The powdery, sugar-white sands found here are unique to this exclusive area, and if you are fortunate enough to vacation here, you'll experience a beach vacation like nowhere else in the US. The island atmosphere of Okaloosa eliminates the crowded found in nearby Destin, while putting you within minutes of Destin Harbor and all of the attractions of the Emerald Coast.
Gulf Dunes Resort, unit 214 is decorated in a fun, beach theme, offering an away-from-home feel the minute you walk in. You'll immediately notice the breathtaking, direct ocean view from your private 3rd floor balcony. The living spaces and kitchen are upgraded with the latest tvs, furniture, and appliances.
The master bedroom has a king bed with adjoining private full bath. The walk through master bath has a vanity and access to the tub/shower and washer/dryer. The additional half bath is accessed from the master or the hallway. Hallway bunk beds, located just outside the bedroom, are perfect for kids or small adults. A sleeper sofa offers additional sleeping for a total of 6 family members. The kitchen is fully appointed and stocked so all you need to do is bring the food.
We provide bed linens, blankets, bath towels, etc. Please bring your own beach towels. Each Gulf Dunes unit has a private washer and dryer for your convenience.
About the area: Okaloosa Island is part of a 30 mile stretch of continuous natural sand barrier. The ocean here is typically as clear as any water can be, with an emerald green color unique to this small area. The sands are pure white and powdery, like sugar, and the beaches are kept immaculately clean and safe by wonderful Okaloosa County authorities. There is plenty of fun right here on the island, from putt putt golf, to outdoor grills to fine dining and night life. We have a fishing pier just a mile away, which is also the home of the original Gulfarium Dolphin Exhibit. Take the kids to the Gulfarium to see dolphins perform, as well as their friends the walrus, sea lions, and penguins. They'll love it.
Okaloosa Island is located within Fort Walton Beach and near world famous Destin. Destin, a beautiful 10 minute drive to the East, where she will meet you with a picturesque view of the Destin Harbor at Harbor Walk Village. Destin is home to the largest private Gulf Fishing Fleet and busiest charter deep sea fishing fleet in the Southeast. If you are interested in good seafood, then just pick one of Destin's many dockside grills for a taste of the day's fresh catch.
The more adventurous may enjoy a jet ski dolphin tour, or a parasailing adventure. You may also find bungee jumping, go carting, golf, putt putt golf, water theme parks, outlet shopping and much more. Bring your family to our beautiful coastline, and take home memories of a lifetime.

Very clean 1 bedroom condo with excellent views of the Gulf. With 2 bunks in the Hallway,and pullout sofa bed,you could sleep 2 more adults and 2 pre teen children. However, I would not recommend to anyone for more then a night or two, as really cramped conditions for storage and only one tub/shower. Very nice for 2 adults for an extended amount of time. Everything was very nice, with exception of the kitchen. The kitchen has shown its age, with peeling paint everywhere from inexpensive cabinetry. Also, the small kitchen is very poorly outfitted for longer stays, with limited cutlery, utensils, knives that need to be replaced, can opener that needs replacing, etc.. It has small island counter, but only 2 bar stools,and they do not swivel to watch TV, or talk to others while they are in living space.There was a brand new refrigerator put in while we were there, so that was a major plus. Would I stay there again? The answer is yes, but only if I did not expect any visitors, mainly because of the view and cleanliness, and the great people from Sunset Rentals, that were especially nice to us. Next year we will spend 2 months on the other side of Destin, along 30a, which is more our cup of tea.
We stayed 3 nights in this 1 bedroom condo. The bathroom layout is somewhat awkward and there is no counter space. Also, no hot tub at this condo. And the living room furniture could use updating. However, the bed was very comfortable, and the unit is gulf front, which was great. The built in bunks would be good for children. Sunset Rentals was very friendly and helpful. Would use them again. Okaloosa Island is my favorite FL vacation spot. We got a great rate on this condo and I felt it was a good value.
We stayed at this property last week and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful week at the beach!!!!! It is directly on the beach with excellent views!!! We couldn't get the DVD player to work....it was operator error lol....but they showed up within A few hours of us calling to show us how to work it! An overall wonderful experience. We will definitely book again!!!!
Had great experience; 2nd year to book with Sunset Resort Rentals; just as good as last year; look forward to next year!
Enjoyed our stay at Gulf Dunes. Sunset Resort Rentals did not disappoint us. The condo was very clean and cozy. We did not have any issues and were able to just relax on the beach. The beach was really nice, and we just love the Destin area. This was a great vacation.
This was our first time staying at Gulf Dunes and we really LOVED it. We love the location of 214 and all its amenities it had to offer. Our ONLY suggestion would be there was no pantry of any sort in the kitchen. We used some improvising and moved things in a cabinet - and put things on top of the fridge to accommodate. We have always stayed at El Matador, but I think we will be returning to Gulf Dunes. We LOVED it!! :)
Thanks Sunset Rentals for another great experience.
