Our second time in this unit. You can see more wear and tear from last year but overall still a good place to stay. The kitchen could use a few measuring cups/spoons and some knives for cutting. Great location on the beach.

Got lucky! Bad weather went east and west of us. Condo we rented was almost as described. Nice beds, clean and spacious. Owners may want to consider some upgrades to living room furniture, but it was no big deal to us. The deck furniture should be updated as well. Would also upgrade options for the TV as to available channels Great location, easy access to beach.

I chose this condo because it looked comfortable. The vacation was for my daughter and I. One weekend my grandson, his wife and their 4 children joined us. There was room for all, and my grandson said that even the couch pull out bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and convenient. I would stay in this condo again.

Stayed for seven days and enjoyed every minute.

Enjoyed our stay at the surf dweller room 402, clean and spacious room, with awesome ocean front views. Would definitely recommend it!
Deann R. September 26, 2017
Very spacious and had every thing that you need I kitchen. Love the balcony furniture.The water was perfect all most every day we where there. Looking forward to 2018 vacation in the same spot.

The condo was clean, the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and included a second fridge that was perfect for drinks! You're literally steps to the beach. We enjoyed the free beach service and the proximity to everything. The facility itself (halls, elevator, beachside bathrooms and grounds) were all kept very clean. It's also not a huge complex so the beach wasn't too crowded. The pool is nice but it's in the parking lot which might deter some; we don't use the pool when we come to the beach so it wasn't an issue for us.

We loved our stay at Surf Dwellers Room 402. The condo was very large, the balcony was the length of the whole condo the rooms were very spacious and everything you needed was there in the kitchen. The only negative thing was the master bedroom shower head. The water pressure coming out of the shower head was so soft that it was nearly impossible to get the sand and shampoo out of my grand daughter’s and my hair, much less try to wash my private parts. I think a removeable shower hose or a head with more pressure would have been better. Don’t let the shower head keep you from staying there though. We had an awesome time and we will be back.

The view from the balcony was great. The pictures were an absolute 100% depiction of the actual condo. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed, including a Keurig. I had asked about this several times but no one could confirm or deny if there was one so we didn't bring our k-cups. Turns out we could have. Not a big deal. Love the extra fridge in the laundry room. Couple of standard maintainence items in the 2 bathrooms but nothing major. Very spacious, decorated nicely. Love the beach service and the fact that the hotel offered paddleboards and such for rent. This condo is right on the beach. Enjoyed that it wasn't right in the middle of major commercial area, but still within a short distance of the pier and shops. The master bed was super comfortable and cozy. The property management company was responsive, available and wonderful to work with. I highly recommend this unit.

My family and I had a great time on spring break while renting this condo. Condo was big and had everything we needed. Our favorite part was the balcony! It was huge with an amazing view! It had lots of places to sit and just watch the sunrise. My kids enjoyed the heated pool, however wish the pool was Oceanside! Pool is situated in front of the building versus by the ocean. Check in was really easy and so was check out. Would def stay here again!

We had an awesome time at Ft. Walton. The condo was amazing. It was clean, neat, had lots of room, and a very well-stocked kitchen. The balcony was beautiful and when we were not at the beach or pool, we were out there. The furniture on the balcony was very comfortable. It was great to have the beach chairs and umbrella included with our stay. We truly enjoyed everything.
Teresa B. January 2, 2018
Our stay with you was everything we wanted. Close enough to visit many activities, but still secluded when you want to get away from the masses. Perfect!
Kelly K. September 30, 2017
The condo overall was fine. Good for our short stay.

We has a fantastic time at the Surf Dweller. The unit we rented was very nice. Loved the size of the balcony and it was nice to have the chaise lounge on the balcony as well. Really enjoyed listening to the waves with the slider open in the evening. Wish they provided hair dryers, extra toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags. Also, it wasn't that busy on the beach and we were told there were no more chairs. We did not understand this as we were told that we got 2 chairs and an umbrella with our room. We went back later in the day and asked that a chair set up be done for us, and the attendant was reluctant to do so.

We enjoyed the surf dweller and the beach. Only downside was getting stuck in the elevator and having to call 911 and having the fire department to get us out. The call button did not summon any response and the surf dweller staff was not helpful. Elevators need an upgrade to improve safety and reliability

Surf Dweller 402 is a GREAT place on Fort Walton Beach. Close to shops, restaurants, etc. Our only complaint would be the constant construction that was being performed to renovate other units. Seems like the HOA would regulate when those types of projects can be performed, for everybody's enjoyment. Make no mistake, we would recommend this unit to anyone.
Sheena B. January 2, 2017
The view from the rental was amazing. There were no problems getting into the property and it was very clean and well supplied. The unit was a bit dated in furnishing compared to others that we have stayed in but the view was the main reason for the trip.
Bradley S. July 25, 2017
The condo has everything you need and provides a good value for the price.
Michelle S. June 26, 2017
We got stuck in an elevator with emergency call button not working and maintenance was in our Condo without calling us first. Otherwise wonderful trip.

We had a very nice stay. There was a problem with the lights on the tennis courts but after I contacted the management company about the problem, it was resolved in a couple of days.

The view from the large balcony is breathtaking! We really enjoyed being on the beach and listening to the waves at night from the room. Everything was very clean and organized with really nice kitchen! We have a family of 4 and enjoyed having an extra fridge to keep our water and drinks cold. The beach attendants were very helpful and the reserved beach chairs were a really nice touch! There were several maintenance people around and they seemed to keep everything in great working order: the elevators were clean and in good shape, the outdoor showers at the beach and pool were great, and in general the place was very well kept. The pool and tennis court were very fun and relaxing. We enjoyed having the pool on the other side of the building away from the beach because after spending all morning on the beach, it gave us a nice break from the wind. The location is the best: close enough to Ft. Walton and Destin to get groceries, go out to eat, shop, do the tourist stuff, etc.; but far enough away to feel calm and relaxed with less people and traffic. We plan to stay here again!
Cathie H. October 17, 2016
We had an awesome stay in Ft. Walton. The condo was fabulous. The location was perfect right on the beach. I can't wait until we can come back. I would recomment Surf Dweller 402 to everyone.
Christe E. July 4, 2017
Loved the condo, plenty of space, very comfortable and wonderful patio. Every step was seamless and easy.
Sharon R. November 19, 2013
I stayed for seven days and nights. The unit was comfortable and had the softest bed I have ever slept in. I wish this unit were available in early February because I would come back for another 7-day stay. So very relaxing. The weather could not have been more pleasant. I am going to be checking out your other rental units to see if there is one nearby the SurfDweller available. I have been staying at the Surf Dweller for the past 15 years and this is the nicest unit I have stayed in. Love it Love it

We spent three nights at Surf Dweller in SD402. From the reception at the rental office to the last minute we spent there, it was a wonderful experience. Don't let the exterior of the building fool you. It is certainly one of the plainest on the strip. But inside, it looks exactly like the property photos show it. Two full refridgerators, a complete kitchen with plenty of plates and silverware. Just bring your own sugar. Huge bedrooms, TVs everywhere. I could go on about this place, but suffice it to say, I would certainly return.
Linda N. July 18, 2014
The condo was nice and clean. We were satisfied with the clean tile floor. Since we have a small baby, we appreciated this alot. House keeping did a good job and I hope they will continue to do so because having a nice clean floor will make us as guests very happy.

The sink in the master bathroom didn't drain well but we managed without too much problem. The cloth dryer produced very weak heat and it must be rusty because it put some brown marks on our clothes. Other than that, everything was good. We had a wonderful time. We will stay here again next year.

This is our second year to stay here, will do many times over

We have 5 ladies, ages 50 to 62, that come to Okaloosa Island every year. This is the 3rd year we have stayed in SD 402. Our main reasons for liking this condo are the large deck with plenty of chairs, comfortable beds, large kitchen and all of the comfortable seating in the living area. We have one lady that has very bad allergies and asthma and she needs to be able to stay cool. In the past we did not have any problems with the a/c, but this year we could not get it any cooler than 72 degrees. Luckily the weather this year was not oppressively hot so she managed ok. Also, the only way to get the toilet in the hall bathroom to flush was to hold the handle down for a long time, and it took awhile to fill back up. This was inconvenient for 5 ladies. We did find notebook paper sticking out from under the couch and children's toys under the chairs and in the corner. Making us think the floors had not been properly cleaned. Overall this is a nice condo and we would return if we could be sure the a/c would keep it cool.

The condo was nice it needs some updating,the plugs need to be replaced,and there are way to many unsecured glass tables to have with small children. Other than that it is a great location and the property management company was awesome.

The condo was great! It was big enough for a family of 5, it was clean and comfortable, and it was easy access to the beach. Brooks and Shorey were easy to deal with and very accomodating.
Belinda P. July 21, 2015
Our vacation and stay at the Surf Dweller was wonderful. The process to stop and register upon our arrival was friendly and quick. The condo was exactly as the picture. It was clean, roomy, and comfortable. The A/C worked fantastic...stayed nice and cool. The refrigerator ice maker works great. The only complaint I had was that the sheets on all the beds felt like sand paper...they were very rough...but we made do. The shower head stream was a challenge for me and my daughter, we both have a lots of real curly hair, so getting the shampoo and conditioner out took a very long time in the shower. We could not get the head to adjust to a stronger stream. Again, we made do. I would recommend the condo, I would go back...the view from the balcony is breath taking.

The condo was very satisfactory. Plenty of room. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to stay even longer than 7 nights next year. Very quiet surroundings and good family atmosphere.
David W. July 2, 2015
My family enjoyed are vacation at Surf Dweller(402) very much. The unit was extremely clean. The location was great. When we come back we will stay at a Brooks and Shorey rental unit.

Having stayed at Surf Dweller for many years, I can highly recommend this unit. It was beautifully, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Our family rented 4 units for a summer reunion, and we all agreed that our Surf Dweller units were perfect for the gathering. Of all that I saw, this one was my favorite!
Debbie H. August 11, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay at Surf Dweller. We'll definitely stay again and hopefully in $402. Only one issue with there not being a plug in the bathtub for my grandson to take a bath. I managed to plug the drain with a washcloth so no big deal.
William F. August 2, 2015
We couldn't have asked for a better place to view and enjoy the beach. The view of the beach and the beach access were outstanding. An elevator ride to the first floor, out the back entrance and across the ramp and you are on the beach. We received complementary use of a beach umbrella and chairs with our room which made use of the beach even more convenient. When not at the beach we enjoyed the comfort of the unit. It is very livable, as the couches and chairs are comfortable and offer a great view of the TV or the beach. The kitchen is beautiful and functional. There are utensils and dishes to fix and serve any meal you might want to fix for at least 6-8 people. But if you plan to cook, bring your own cleaning supplies. There was no dish detergent of any kind of cleaner to use on the counter tops or stove. There were only two pods for the dishwasher. Bring extra bath towels and personal soap and shampoo. There were only two of us because our guests had to cancel at the last minute and had there been four or more people there we would have definitely been short of towels. Also there is a glass accent table against the wall between the two bed rooms that is easy to run into so watch out for it. I finally placed a magazine on the corner so we would see it and not run into it. The shower in the master bath is very nice and romantic. The drains on all the plumbing were very slow so be patient. None of these minor distractions interfered with our enjoyment. We had friends that stayed at other facilities that weren't nearly as nice and who paid just as much or more than we did so I would highly recommend staying here.

The condo was great. The kitchen had everything you need to cook meals. Seen dolphins from the balcony every day. Loved the view. Very clean comfortable. Nice location. Far enough away from the crowds; but within minutes from stores, restaurants and shops. Loved it and will be back!!!

We had a wonderful time staying in Surf Dweller! With 5 adults and 3 kids, we were very comfortable and had plenty of room! Would definitely recommend Brooks and Shorey to anyone looking for a great place to stay. We will surely be booking again!!
Kathy H. May 17, 2015
The only thing wrong with the condo was that there were no hangers in closets. Other than that, condo very nice and roomy. However, there was MAJOR renovations going on at Surf Dweller and it was a huge problem. Brooks and Shorey should not have rented out any of these condos during this time. One day we had to walk through the weeds and sand on the side of the complex to get to the beach, as the walkway through the complex was being painted. The noise was extremely aggravating as well.
Bonnie D. November 2, 2015
Great place to stay. View of ocean and sunrise and sunset incredible. Walked along beach to pier to have breakfast every morning. Sandy white beaches and crystal clear water. Condo was very comfortable and loved the large balcony. Definitely going back to this condo again
Jennifer M. September 10, 2015
We had a great time. View was outstanding, comfort of the condo was good, and everything we needed was there for us. Excellent time. No troubles what so ever. And got there about 1 and was able to check in early.
