My wife and I spent a few days here to relax. The beach was great and the complex has free chairs with umbrellas. The complex is a little dated and unkempt in areas. The unit has been updated and is adequate but wouldn't recommend to friends.

Wonderful view and decent apartment. It was advertised as non-smoking and no pets. The other units must allow smoking from the balconies, so evey morning and evening we wanted to sit on the balcony we were over come by cigarette smoke from other units and had to go inside. Also, there must have been someone with a pet in the apartment before we got there, my husband is allergic to dogs, the couch and bedroom rug were covered in pet dander which made it horrible on his allergies. We also found left over pet food in the night stand drawer, yuck. The mattress was uncomfortable but the bunk beds in the hallway were comfortable. There were plenty of dishes and great appliances. The washer/dryer was awesome and the two toilets were a great perk. The location was spectacular, the beach service was great and the guys were very friendly who helped set out the chairs.

Needless to say the photos look waaay better than reality of this condo.
There was no carpet in the living area which helped magnify the sound of the buildings fire alarm that went off at midnight the first night we were there. No fire. Still hear the sound at night. 80’s burgundy border in the bathroom. Dresser drawers literally fell out if you tried to use them and squeaked like nails on the chalkboard. And permanent residents dog barked a lot of the time we were in the unit trying to enjoy our stay. Brooks and shoddy staff were not notified of the fire alarm issue so that’s not good. Ladies were helpful at check in.

Had a great time. Definitely spoiled to going during the off season now. Its so much more peaceful. Condo was great as always. Only complaint I have is I miss my gift bag. Especially the chapstick! lol

Our vacation rental was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. I would say the only complaint I had was that the pull out sofa bed was very uncomfortable. We wanted to use it since it was right by the sliding glass doors and we could here the gulf at night, but the bed/mattress was very uncomfortable. Other than that though we had a very nice stay. Everything in the rental was clean and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo! From the moment we walked in we love that place! It has a very open, beachy feel and it has just the most amazing views! The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen had pretty much everything that we needed! That couch was comfortable and we ate almost all of our meals out on the patio table. The location of the condo is very close to the pier but not too close to be overcrowded. It is a very nice 15 minute walk on the beach to get to the pier and all of the restaurants. One thing I would say is that it could use a new patio table and chairs as the ones that are out there are not very sturdy and if you bump the table it almost seems like it could tip. A nice wooden hightop table and chairs that would be amazing! The kitchen could also use some better grilling tools and a soft spatula and one to use for flipping pancakes and making breakfast. Overall we loved our stay at this condo and we're definitely book it again!

This condo is on the top floor so no noise from above. You can enjoy breakfast on the balcony and listen to the waves. It was very relaxing. We had an issue with the disposal which Brooks and Shorey promptly fixed. I would definitely rent this unit again!

Great place to stay and relax. don't forget your sunscreen! wonderful place to stay and have fun. pool was quite and relaxing and the beach was close and amazing. only one complaint... bring your own sheets and pillow. these are harsh and rough on the skin. the bed isn't the most comfortable thing ive slept on but after a long day in the sun it did the job.
Amanda I. August 20, 2017
We stayed for a week at the end of July. The condo was exactly as pictured. Everything worked great. We had beautiful views and it was surprisingly very quiet. The location was great with easy access to the main roads. I would definitely stay here again!

Unit was as described as far as amenities. Area rug pictured in front of couch was no longer there. Would have been nice to have one. Toaster was not working, button would not stay down on its own, had to hold it down the whole time. Unit linens were clean but comforters and pillo on beds and mattress covers could use a deep cleaning. Couch could use a cleaning also, it’s definitely seen some wear since the pictures shown were taken. Bathrooms don’t have much counter top space if you are used to having some. There were no scissors in this unit, luckily I had brought my own to open things with.
Overall we had a excellent week! View is breathtaking, lots of dolphins to watch! Condo building and parking were great! 2 elevators to use and pool is nothing fancy but was always clean. Beach chair service was excellent and so handy! Ocean is shallow and kids could play easily near shore. There were boogie boards in the closet of the unit that the kids loved useing!
Thanks for a great stay and we will return to Gulf Dunes and Okaloosa Island for sure! Would definitely recommend to a friends and family!!

I liked the location of the condo and it's beach access with ocean view. I do feel the condo could use some updates. I feel the carpet from the bedroom should be removed. Also the couch cushions appeared to be stained. The amenities item list should be updated as there were paper towels and toilet paper available. Thanks.

We had a great time! Everything was as described and we didn't have any issues. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We have stayed at Brooks & Shorey's Gulf Dunes so many times it is almist our "home away from home". It is an excellent place to stay and I would recommend it to all.

The condo has pealing on the cabinets, the outdoor furn. wasn't pretty, but very sturdy!The bed was confy but not the couch or chair. But the location and staff made up for all this!! People were friendly everywhere and helpful! I would stay at this place again, just maybe not this condo. There were only 2 of us, but it would be uncomfortable for any more in my opinion. Manage company was #1.

I would recommend new couch and chair.

The condo was very clean and perfect for my family of 4. Views were beautiful. The lady at check in was very friendly and informative. We even received a small welcome gift! This place is conveniently located to a Publix and just a very short drive to Destin. The only negative report is this unit's (605) bedroom window was not covered by a curtain and was in front of the elevator light.
Tiffany A. May 19, 2015
We loved the room 605 we were there just this past week may 2015, Beautiful views very clean. The only thing I would have liked to have in the room is a curtin over the window. The light outside by the elevator was bright coming through there. Everyone there was very nice.

We rented this unit during a golf tournament in which my husband was playing. Not being one for hanging around the golf course, I spent a good bit of time in the condo and especially on the terrace. The condo is very clean, updated, and cozy. Being on the waterfront was important to me and I really had a magnificent view. Everyone was so nice and helpful. The condo complex was not too noisy and I enjoyed that also. The complex is so centrally located and it is so easy to reach entertainment areas. Parking, checking in and out, etc were very easy.
Richard R. June 24, 2015
Very happy with the condition of the unit. The location was close enough to everything that very little time was spent in the car. Overall great experience.
Anonymous December 6, 2016
Overall the condo was ok. However, the bed covers appeared old and dirty. I didn't feel clean sleeping with them so I just took them off the bed. It was cool this time of year and there wasn't a blanket that fit the bed. The tv on the wall had cords hanging all down the wall and there was really no charm whatsoever about this property. The bedroom was not on the ocean side and that was a negative as well.
Anonymous October 3, 2016
Our experience was good. The amenities were everything we needed for our stay. The bathrooms are rather small, but we made it work.

We had a great experience at the Gulf Dunes Condos. My family loved the location and our stay was grear. Thank you!
Astrid H. June 19, 2016
The condo overall was nice, but not quite as pictured. The sofa has definitely been used a lot since this picture. The floor constantly stayed sandy, would have been nice to have a rug by the couch. The comforter in the master needs to be updated. Overall I would rate the condo a B. We enjoyed our trip and will return.

We stayed at Gulf Dunes as guests for a destination wedding. Wedding was on the beach, directly behind the resort. Our accommodations were spacious, clean and had an amazing view. Great time!!

Everything was excellent, location, view, and price. The only problem I had was that the hot water heater internal curcuit breaker was blown and had to wait 4 hours to get it working again.

Stayed 4 nights, wish it was 40! Beautiful view, location, and condo. VERY comfortable. Could not access internet the first day and it was fixed that afternoon. No other problems whatsoever. Very helpful staff. Agreat all-around vacation thanks to Brooks and Shorey!

Very relaxing & beautiful view of beach!
John G. March 18, 2013
We have stayed in this unit for 3 years. I think it needs a little updating. The bedroom is way too dark. The bathrooms are great, as is the kitchen and living area. There are many areas of paint chipping on the woodwook. the TVs are pretty old. We love the location , but sadly it has been rented next winter, so we have fould another unit. (This kitchen is very welled stocked.
James E. October 12, 2012
This is a perfect time of year to go to the beach. Very relaxing stay. The place was great.
Brad C. November 23, 2012
Spectacular view. Flooplan functional. Washer/dryer, fridge, dishwasher, microwave great. The condo had an odor. Was it musty, dirty carpet, rented by smokers? It was similar to what I've experienced in a old, poorly run motel. Even after airing the room out, the odor returned. The TV and TV cable quality was poor. The internet worked great.
Anonymous June 26, 2012
While I greatly enjoyed my stay with the beautiful view and friendly staff and the cleanliness of the unit, it was obvious that the unit needed some repairs (cracked tile, knobs on cabinetry were broken, etc). Also it seemed that the elevators had no semblance of air conditioning and the power went out in my building during the stay. Other than that I was pleased.
Vicki R. July 3, 2012
The property and location was great. Convenient to beach, restaurants, etc. The staff of Brooks and Shorey Resorts were very helpful, professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend your property to friends.
Sally S. February 3, 2013
Very enjoyable experience.
Kathleen S. October 15, 2012
When we arrived, the smell of bug spray in the elevator was overwhelming, and the spray of room deodorizer in our room was choking and remained so for days.
The tiles in the hallway near the kitchen are loose and rock when you stand on them. All in all, although really beautiful, the condo can use a major overhaul.
John W. May 5, 2013
The overall condition of the property was okay. There was a lot of wear and tear on the appliances, counter tops and cabinets. The small appliances (toaster, coffee pot etc.) were dirty. The dish washer had garbage and hair in the bottom of it. We had to clean it before we could use it. There was rust on the side of the refrigerator and in the bathrooms on the soap dishes. The refrigerator froze the food and beverages we put in it even after turning the temp controller to a lower setting. The floors were not clean. The patio and patio furnisher were very dirty. We had to call maintenance to fix the shower head, light in the shower/bathtub area and outlets in the bathrooms before we could use them.
On the plus side, the bed and living room furniture were comfortable and the view from the property was great. We also really enjoyed the pool area and beach. The staff was friendly and helpful.
We would recommend the property but not the condo to a friend.

Unit 605 is in need of some upgrades. The refrigerator leaks and there are several broken floor tiles. The dishwasher door will not stay closed. There is a nice, new 50" flat screen TV.

Overall we enjoyed our time in GD 605 and were very happy with the location, the pool, the management, and use of umbrella and beach chairs every day so don’t take the following as dissatisfaction with our time there. Was not pleased with condition and cleanliness of the balcony furniture - was too dirty to use and one of the main reasons we picked this Condo! The Condo is in need of a lot of repair and updating. The kitchen sink faucet leaked a lot; Refrigerator had water leaking under it that we had to wipe up constantly; items on top shelf of the Refrigerator froze; many cracked tiles and tiles without grout; no pillow cases on extra pillows; bed linen was stained; bed cover looked like it needed cleaning badly; was rust on the dryer that transferred to our clothing; and the dishwasher left nasty black residue on the dishes. One last thing; if you’re a light sleeper this is not the room for you. The bedroom window is directly across from the elevators which can mean a lot of noise up until around 11-12 at night.

Everything was great except for the incident I had with the dryer. I noticed that it wasn't drying very well so I checked the lint filter and it was full of sand. I emptied it out and vacuumed the inside of the dryer because when I removed the lint filter, sand poured out of it into the dryer tub. After I cleaned the filter and replaced it, it dried my clothes much better. Other than that, it was great. Will you please make sure that guests know how to remove and clean the filter? Also will you make sure this is on the checklist for the cleaning crew to double check? Other than that the property is beautiful, the condo was great and the friendly helpful staff are second to none. Everyone we met was extremely nice.

I know it's a generally amazing thing to be in a condo overlooking Ft Walton Beach only two properties down from the main drag, but this condo was a little beaten up. The wicker on the table outside was coming apart, the blinds didn't shut and were held together with a twist-tie. The rug had a big bright pink stain. The hide-a-bed was very worn and thin. The microwave would run on its own unless the door was pushed up and in far enough. The water smelled really funky. Some of the dishes were dirty. The coffee pot leaked brown water from underneath and had no filters. The bottom rack in the fridge door came off the first night dropping/breaking two glass liquor bottles onto the floor for us to clean up. The bathrooms' wood cabinets were chipped off in places and the soap dishes were caked with some weird grainy residue. Looking down from 6th floor, we could see caked-on dirt surrounded the pool. Parking was good. Washer & dryer, toaster, stove, shower, dishwasher all worked well. Plenty of dishes, silverware, measuring cups, coffee cups, etc. View was fabulous of course. Sleeping was good for 5 adults (6 would require the hide-a-bed instead of the just the couch). Brooks and Shorey have been great the past 2 stays, but this property was just kind of dumpy. Not a total dump, just dumpy.
