About Brian

My wife and I live in Huntsville, Alabama and we have resided here since 2006. Both my wife and I grew-up in the Southeast and we love to visit the beach. Okaloosa Island is truly beautiful place to vacation.

Brian purchased this condo in 2010

Why Brian chose Fort Walton Beach

Our neighbors offered us the use of their personal condo on many different occasions so we decided to purchase a condo on the same island. We truly fell in love with the place. The location is relaxing and the sugar white sand along the emerald cost is just absolutely beautiful.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is nicely decorated and the building is very quite as only 6 other units are on the same floor where our condo is located. In addition, their are two elevators located on the property which allows for quick access to each floor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brian,



Just thought I would drop you a line to compliment you on your condo. It was everything we were looking for in a condo. The decor was beautiful and the kitchen well equipped. The complex was very well maintained. We enjoyed the fact that we did not have to worry about chairs and an umbrella all week. They were set up and ready for us when we arrived on the beach. We would love to come back again. Thanks for being available on such short notice!

Lovely Gulf-front condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Condo 414 at Gulf Dunes. The condo was clean, and well-applianced in the kitchen, with everything one could need. We loved the sturdy balcony furniture where we spent time in the morning over breakfast or in the evening with a glass of wine. We appreciated the dark-out curtains in the master bedroom, not usually seen in other condos. Brian was readily available to answer any questions and checked in with us to see that all was well. We couldn't have asked for a better spot to enjoy our week's vacation at the Gulf! Thanks so much !! We loved it !

Great Beach Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

August 26 - September 2: The location of this condo was perfect for getting to the beautiful white sand of Okaloosa Island in less than two minutes. There was no wait for the elevator and there was plenty of convenient parking. The condo was exactly as advertised and very comfortable. I was a little apprehensive about the comfort of the bed but was pleasantly surprised that the king bed was extremely comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. The FREE beach service of two chairs and an umbrella was just icing on the cake! I would highly recommend this condo!!

great vacation condo!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your condo! It was exactly as described---even better! The place was extremely clean, well decorated, and we really liked the bath layout! Perfect for two of us getting dressed at the same time! The view was great, access to the pool and beach was so close, and the umbrella/chair service is wonderful!! I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a really nice play to stay and enjoy the beach! thanks, Brian!!!

Outstanding condo!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding! We have been visiting the Gulf Dunes complex for the last 5 years and this condo is by far the best yet. During our visit we noticed many upgrades to the building, especially the lobby area. The Owner is fast to respond and the free Beach Service is a plus. We will definitely be back next year.

Priced too high compared to other condos

  • 2 of 5

Positives; always love staying on the island, condo was close and easy access.

Negatives; condo was advertised as 2 baths but only was bath and a half, would only be good for small family or couple. For the price compared to our previous rentals on the island, lacked amenities, older appliances and furniture had a body odor smell. The refrigerator made a constant noise when running so we had to continue to monitor, shut off when we were there and on when we were out. Labels on everything, made it feel impersonal. Elevator access was off on occasion had to use stairs. Temp access code expired on the morning of departure and could have locked ourselves out while trying to pack.

Owner's Response: WOW, over 50 Five Star reviews!! Packing in a large group of people in the condo was not wise. You booked the condo for 2 and the condo is sufficient for 4 and even has a King size bed. The number of baths were advertised correctly and the refrigerator was replaced with a brand new one upon receiving your report. The door lock works find, but when you check-out past your check-out time the door code will expire. This protects the next guest checking-in. As for the amenities, not a single guest has complained in over 7 years. Also, our prices are lower than the competition. As for the fabric furniture it is replaced every 3 to 4 years and is cleaned regularly. Despite violating the terms of our rental agreement you were refunded your entire security deposit, but taking revenge by posting a negative review was really unwarranted.
