Reviewer Comments:

We originally booked this condo for a bachelorette weekend with 7 girls but only ended up going with 4. I felt there was plenty of room for the 4 of us but adding up to 7 may have been cramped for 7 adults. Beds were confortable and the condo had everything we needed! We love that the chairs and umbrella are included with the room, just reduces the hassle! We however did hear a constant knocking that began before 8am most days. Unsure if there was construction going on or what it was?? Overall we had a wonderful stay at Gulf Dunes 312!

Owner's Response: These two bedroom units at the Gulf Dunes are jewels and rent the extra bunk room, there are many companies who even rent them as 3 bedroom units sleeping more than 8. We like to rent them as the two bedroom units they are with the extra bunk room being just a bonus for the little ones. They can sleep up to 8 guests and there are many groups that comfortably sleep that many in these hope your 5 star ratings though are indicative of the amazing enjoyable time you and your girlfriends had while staying in beautiful unit 312. Congrats on the upcoming wedding and we hope the wedding is everything the bride has been dreaming of!! Thank you so much for trusting Brooks and Shorey Resorts to get you in the right vacation home for your bachelorette trip, please keep in mind we have a return guest discount for all our repeat renters so call us directly to book your next vacation.

We were so pleased with having such a spacious condo. It felt like our own private island, but close enough to get to activities and husband was thrilled with the modern kitchen and cookware and accessories.

Reviewer Comments:

Condo was well taken care of and the Complex was also well taken care of. We enjoyed our stay here. The only thing about the condo I didn't like was that the living room furniture was pretty uncomfortable but we were rarely in there to sit around. Also, I don't like the management's policy about check in was "sometime after 4PM, please be patient until 6PM". I have never seen that in all of our vacations. If you are paying that much money and traveling that far, I would expect an exact time. If you cannot deliver on that time, you need to hire more staff. I'm sure there would have been issues if we said our check out time is 10:00 but may be later if we weren't ready. I really liked the Management company's app...good communication

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you enjoyed use of our brand new Brooks and Shorey APP. Yes this is our policy as stated in the rental contract you signed for the reservation, check in starts at 4 and can take up til 6PM on some occasions, just dependent on the day and housekeeping's schedule. Check out is 10AM as stated in our policy, there isn't a way to extend that normally as there's usually another guest arriving that same day. We do need that full time from 10AM til 4-6PM to get each condo cleaned and up to standards. We are sorry this had such a negative affect of your opinion of your stay with us. This Gulf Dunes two bedroom condo is just wonderful and we hope the condo was everything you and yours were expecting on your vacation. Please come see us again soon for another stay in paradise!!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our third time to use the rental company and our second time at Gulf Dunes. We were completely disappointed from upon entering the condo. There was food on the floor of the dining room when we entered the room. The knob on the master bathroom cabinet fell off upon touch. The DVD player did not work in the second bedroom at all, and the DVD player only functioned half the time in the master. Each time we attempted to go to the office with questions or concerns, there was never a person but only a sign stating a time they would be back. This was not at lunch hours, but morning hours and even after lunch hours. There is a sign on the doors of the building that states that if you are wet (from the beach or pool) to take the stairs and not the elevator. There was also a printed note on the doors asking that we not take the stairs due to painting. I'm not sure how we were expected to go to our third floor room without use of either of the stairs or elevator and there was no one in the office to ask. Also, there was drilling the entire week on trash shoot doors, which began in the morning and lasted the entire day. It was unfortunate for my infant child because naps were impossible. The drilling was so loud and constant. I know that repairs and refurbishments are just part of maintenance, but I also believe we should have been made aware of upcoming plans and that we should have been given the choice to go ahead and book/stay/keep our reservation knowing, or given the option to go with another condo company. The lack of communication was staggering. I cannot recommend this unit or this rental property based on my recent experience.

Owner's Response: We cannot believe this review and the negative theme here, we are so sorry for this disappointment ridden review of your stay in Gulf Dunes 312. Unfortunately the trash chute repairs were a Homeowner's Association scheduled repairs that is totally under their control, therefore we had no further forewarning. The property itself is still completely functional and the condos are great with wonderful setups in the two bed two bath with bunk units like this 312. We love renting this unit, it's a pleasant condo with regular volunteer updates done by the owner to keep it at least up to standards and even above! We at Brooks and Shorey Resorts are sincerely apologetic for the unseasonably planned repairs on property again we truly truly have no control or say-so over this. We have amazing beach front condominium vacation rentals and we love sharing Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach with all our guests. We hope you give the area another chance and come back for more memories in paradise.

Owner's Response: Thank you greatly for trusting Brooks and Shorey Resorts to book your home away from home for a fun girls vacay! We are thrilled with your high ratings on our review and we appreciate your feedback on your stay. These condos are absolutely lovely and give ample amount of space- you don't get this in all two bedroom condos so that bunk room is a huge plus in this budget friendly rental. We appreciate your feedback on the floors, we did have it inspected and we didn't come across anything more than the normal wear from lots of good times in the sun and SAND in this beach front condo. Unfortunately with the perfect location and proximity to the beach walking around with no shoes or wet flips flops through the parking lot and garage, sand does have a tendency to stick in the small pores in the tile and carpets of course too, not to mention any dirt from the bottoms of feet and shoes tends to rub down into the flooring throughout your stay. The floors were deep cleaned, steamed and sanitized relatively recently, but we are looking into having the carpets done again just to make sure everything stays up to you again for your amazing review and we look forward to having you and your friends back to Okaloosa Island.
