About Mike and Gina Layfield

We both are from Louisiana originally, and have been living in Houston for the past 17 years

Mike and Gina Layfield purchased this Condo in 2014

Why Mike and Gina Layfield chose Ft Walton Beach

We have always vacationed as a family in Ft Walton Beach, and we all love the area. When we started shopping for a rental condo, Ft Walton Beach was the only choice for us.

What makes this Condo unique

The large condo, one of the largest 2 bedrooms on the Island, the views from the 6th floor large balcony, being so close to the water, and the super white fine sand are just some of the things that made this condo our dream home.

                                                                Would stay at Surf Dweller again. Good set up.

                                                                Condo was okay

                                                                A guest from Youngsville , LAYoungsville , LA

                                                                We enjoyed our stay regardless of Tropical Storm Cindy. Our only issue is that we received a phone call after check accusing us of trashing the condo and saying we lied about our amount of guests. We tried calling the owner on our way to the condo to inquire about adding the number of guests. The owner did not answer nor did he call us back. We loaded and started the dishwasher before leaving. The only thing left in the sink were the coffee cups because the dishwasher was full. The coffee cups were rinsed out. We washed all towels and put the last load in the dryer before leaving as a courtesy. I went to this condo every year growing up, but this was the last time I'll be going there.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                The total number of guests and the rental agreement are agreed upon when the reservation is made. Having too many guests in the condo violates county fire code. We were notified of the extreme condition the condo was left in by our cleaning service, and charged extra for this cleaning. Unfortunately, due to this incident, we will be forced to add a cleaning/security deposit to our bookings that will be refunded if all house rules and rental agreement are followed.

                                                                Very comfortable, kitchen adequately eqipped

                                                                Everything was really nice... the beds are very comfortable and we loved the seating on the deck although a couple of more chairs would be nice. Everything was in good order except for the icemaker which was a bit stubborn and the hall bathroom door which was difficult to open from the inside. Other than these minor things we had a great time and will be back! Also, the beach guy was very helpful!

                                                                Wonderful family vacation!!

                                                                We would definitely stay in this condo again. It was super clean, and included everything that the pictures showed. All of the local attractions, stores, restaurant's were all very close in distance. We loved sitting on the balcony and seeing the dolphin's swim every morning and afternoon. Everyone was super friendly!

                                                                Beautiful Home

                                                                We enjoyed our stay at the Surf Dweller! The home and the view of the ocean was even more beautiful than anticipated. The living room/kitchen area and the master bedroom faced the ocean. The balcony added so much to the enjoyment of our vacation. The home was lovely, very clean and decorated so tastefully. The kitchen provided everything you need if you decide to fix a meal. Besides the beauty of the home the owner provided baskets of toiletries for each bathroom. If you are planning a vacation I recommend property 597211 for your stay.
