This was our 7th trip and maybe the best one yet! We were happy to find new mattresses, flooring, and décor. The condo was beautiful and so was the beach! We hope to make 2018 our 8th year in a row!!

Reviewer Comments:

I have nothing negative about our 4 night stay. The unit was very tastefully decorated. The bunk room provided extra beds without the fee of a 3 bedroom. I enjoyed not being right over the pool. We go to bed early and appreciated the quiet of our location. The employees who checked us in were very nice. We loved having a covered parking space. I also appreciate the ease of leaving without a huge list of chores that other rentals have left. We loved having a beach side pool. We frequently stay on Okaloosa Island and we decided that Gulf Dunes is our favorite. We will definitely be back.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved the location, view, beaches, and ample space. The condo seems to have a new hot water heater, which no cold showers really do matter when you're getting 5 people showered for dinner out after a beach day. The floors are beautiful and the decor is nice and beachy. The kitchen counters and appliances definitely need to be replaced and upgraded asap for sure. With those and some improvements they are already in the works on (cabinet fronts), this condo would be nearly perfect. Easy check in and checkout and having a nice person like MaryAnn at the desk right at the condo location is great! I will definitely be keeping my eye on this condo for upgrades for future spring break rental possibilities!

Owner's Response: Thank you greatly for your great feedback and your truthful comments! We appreciate both! This is a great unit, it does rent well so it stays being used, but the condo owners are looking into improvements always like you mentioned and we'll certainly get those marketed as soon as they happen. We do have a repeat guest discount that we'll be able to offer you for all future stays with Brooks and Shorey Resorts so please please give us a call next time you are looking to book so we can get that applied for you. Thank you again, we look forward to seeing you again at the GULF DUNES.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at Gulf Dunes last year and were very happy with our unit. We did not book through Brooks and Shorey. This year our unit was in disrepair. Chipped cabinets, missing bars in refrigerator to hold food, stove burner that didn't work, screen doors that came off completely when you tried to open it, dirty mirrors and wasn't very clean overall. We like the location and layout of the unit. It could have been kept up and cleaned much better.

Owner's Response: What a disappointment to hear your not-so-cheerful feedback from your vacation with us on Okaloosa Island! Thank you for your five star rating on the services received from us at Brooks and Shorey Resorts. Everyone loves the Gulf Dunes, the location on the Island is just perfect for convenience and comfort! Such a nice property, well-kept and being so close to the Fishing Boardwalk it makes it a very very fun location. Fort Walton Beach is its own little paradise, we hope you were able to enjoy the essence of the beach, the GUlf of Mexico, the gorgeous white soft silky sand. We hope you travel back to the Panhandle again in the future.

Reviewer Comments:

Sliding glass door to balcony would not lock. Refrigerator ice maker hose broke and flooded kitchen and hallway. Had to mop and call for maintenance. Water to refrigerator cut off and repair made in a few hours. Ceiling fan in master b/r would not change to low speed(high speed only worked). Overall condition of condo was fair.

Owner's Response: Being that these are vacation home rentals, problems sometimes arise from different things like the appliances, or washer/dryer, or TV's maybe, that must be repaired. This is something we have no control over, but we do keep tabs on the dates of the appliances and as we're located on the Island, we have maintenance quickly address all issues. We are so sorry for the few things that came up during your vacation, we appreciate your patience with everything. This is a fantastic unit with breathtaking views. Please call us again when planning your vacation so we can get you in the perfect condo!
