Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Beautifully appointed with fine furnishings and bright colors throughout! Granite counter tops accentuate the fully equipped kitchen. His and Her sinks make life easy in the master bath. Tropical Floral patterns say "Welcome to the Beach"! This two bedroom beach front condo sleeps up to 8 guests comfortably. The EXTRA bunk room offers an additional sleeping area that our little guests just absolutely LOVE! The master bedroom and living room are on the beach side and both have an entry to the beach front balcony. OH THE VIEWS FROM THE 5TH FLOOR! Just gorgeous! No obstructions, no side views, this is direct beach front - as good as it gets! Marvel in the sights of the pristine sugar white beach and emerald green waters. Amazing views from the dining area as well as the kitchen. Meal prep will be a breeze with lots of counter space and all major appliances and cookware. Washer and dryer also included in this condo for your laundry needs. Gulf Dunes Resort offers guests a getaway experience with spacious tropical grounds, sea dunes, tennis courts, grill area, two pools (one heated October thru March), and ample parking. The beach access does require navigation of stairs as you traverse the sand dunes. The beaches of Okaloosa Island are as pure white as beaches get. The sugary soft sand is found nowhere else in North America, attracting visitors from all areas of the world. Wade in the crystal clear water of the Gulf of Mexico. This stretch of beach is part of Florida's Emerald Coast, stretching from Panama City to Pensacola. Gulf Dunes is near many of Destin's attractions, such as Destin Harbor, outlet shopping, and many other outdoor activities. Parasailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, go carting, jet skis, dolphin tours, bungee jumping, and water parks are just some of what Destin has to offer.

All of our daily and weekly guests receive the following complimentary guest package: 2 beach chairs and umbrella set up for you on the beach (March 1 to October 31); 18 holes of golf with 1/2 cart at Shalimar Pointe Golf Club daily; one free pass to a 2-hour Dolphin Cruise daily, 1 adult pass to snorkeling daily (April - October); nightly movie rentals, FREE Internet access (most units wireless).

Gulf Dunes Condominiums is close to Fort Walton’s shopping and dining and a mere ten minutes from Destin. Stroll along the beach to the Okaloosa fishing pier or Boardwalk. Stay with us and enjoy access to two beachside swimming pools (one heated November – March), private beach walkover, exercise room, tennis court, and a barbecue area.

Reviewer Comments:

This is our 2nd year to stay at a Gulf Dunes Condo. Location is wonderful. Can't beat the view or the convenience to the beach! Beach service is great and they keep the beach very clean and groomed. Marianne at the front desk is "THE BEST". We had (2) problems in the condo. Called Marianne and they were fixed within the day of the call.

Stayed 4 nights over Thanksgiving week. Weather was beautiful and it was very laid back due to the area being less crowded. View was beautiful of beach. Condo has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Plenty of room for family of 6.

Reviewer Comments:

The property is in a great location for beach views and access. Overall, the property was a good choice but, I am very picky about upkeep of the properties where I stay and customer friendliness of the property. Upkeep - Railing on the balcony is in need of painting, there were several cracks in the kitchen tile, carpet needs to be thoroughly cleaned or replaced. Customer friendliness - No pot holders could be found, no directions on how to operate an obviously new/unusual dishwasher, the coffee maker used non-standard filters, too many remotes and no instructions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the interesting and compelling feedback, we truly appreciate hearing your thoughts. Gulf Dunes property is splendid. You are close to the beginning of the Island, within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. You're by a public beach access so you don't have a crowded noisy condo on one side of you when staying here, makes for more peaceful time. Unfortunately some of the aspects of your dissatisfaction are out of the control of us at Brooks and Shorey Resorts as well as the condo owner and are solely reliant on the HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION, such as the balcony railing painting. There may be some painting in the works by the association, we'll look forward to that in the future. In response to your customer friendliness comments-pot holders are absolutely provided in each one of our condos, they are stored in a main drawer in the kitchen for your convenience. We wish you'd called us on this we would have definitely made sure you had these. You know these days with such advanced technology, any new appliance we get has to be learned by everyone, it's not something standard so every appliance works the same. We do strive to leave you a manual or send maintenance up to help you get started on any new updated appliance that may be difficult to operate. This is one side of UPDATING that may not be "customer friendly" to new guests, but once you learn the new appliance you see how nice it is and get to take advantage. Unfortunately in Fort Walton Beach there is only one cable company and they did enforce an update to the cable system this year, that has been a challenge to get accustomed to. Again, not a decision of Brooks and Shorey Resorts, just another thing we must learn and adapt to. While it can be confusing with the different remotes, it's actually more convenient with the new cable as you only need one remote for everything. We are looking into a solid set of instructions for the new system. Thank you for coming, please come again soon!!

Reviewer Comments:

This condo is beautiful and has everything you need. The view is perfect. You overlook the Gulf from the balcony, and can even see the bay from the front door. Having Brooks and Shorey on-site made check-in quick and easy. Mobile check-out through the app meant we could load up the car and head home without the extra step of going back to the front desk. I would rent this unit again.
