We loved this place !! Everything was so clean, well thought out and super big ! The staff was wonderful. My only complaint was the algae/seagrass in the ocean. It really put a damper on our beach experience, but I know you have no control over the weather. The thermostat seemed to go a little haywire at times too, I dont know if this was a previous setting. We absolutely loved the condo though !! Thank you for sharing with us !

Overall stay was great except hurricane Micheal.

We absolutely amazed out how clean and well appointed the condo was . TV’s in every room... Carpet that looked like new ... cold AC ... every type of dish or cooking utensil, you could possibly every need... we only had one small issue, with the dishwasher not working, we called the office and there was a brand new dishwasher installed the next day. The balcony was twice as large as where we had stayed before. We will definitely come back next year, and hopefully stay in Surf Dweller 709 once again.... definitely 5 stars !

Condo is huge.
Balcony is huge.
2 beach chairs & umbrella daily.

Property location on island is great.
Quiet condo, couldn't hear any neighbors.

Condo is hot. Owner controls temp remotely. Tried to lower temp on thermostat repeatedly, only to find that it was adjusted back up to 75 degrees by owner.
Balcony was littered with sunflower seed shells.
Hair came out of faucet in bathtub when water was turned on.

The complex was wonderful, the condo I rented not so much. This unit is very dated ,new appliances is a must here.The dryer does not work well,dont stop spinning when the door is open,and a couple times I had to get it spinning by hand because it couldn't start on its temp is all over the place and cant change it at all.I would definetly stay at the surf dweller again,just not this unit as there are plenty others that have been updated inside.Beach access was perfect as well as friendly staff.

The condo was spotless! It came well stocked with kitchen items. Beds were comfortable with soft sheets. View was amazing! We loved our stay at Surf Dweller and didn't want to leave.

This particular unit and the surf dweller building is a great older building. I have stayed at many different places in Fort Walton Beach and realize that the two bedroom units at Surf Dweller are larger than any of the other two bedroom units of the new condominiums that have been erected. This particular unit, 709 was a great unit with great views on the seventh floor And was extremely comfortable.

We stayed in this unit over the 4th of July holiday period and it was wonderful. Great views from the balcony and perfect views for fireworks from the front balcony. Unit was clean and well stocked with all the essentials needed. The pool area was very nice and clean, and although we stayed during a holiday the pool was never crowded.

This was the largest 2 bedroom condo I've seen in the area. Very clean, loved the comfortable reclining couches, excellent views and a very large patio.

This is our third rental through Brooks and Shorey Resorts and have not been disappointed yet. Overall, the condo was great! Very large compared to other places we have stayed in the Fort Walton Beach area. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed for the week stay. The outdoor patio area was fantastic. Perfect for drinking coffee in the morning and watching the dolphins.
The only downside I can think of, which was not really a big deal, is the stove was a little outdated and the burners were not level.

I would never rent #709 again, I have never checked into a unit where the bathrooms were disgusting before as this one was. Sand was in both bathroom floors along with hair left in the bathroom showers. The deadbolt was broken along with carpets needing cleaning. All other units I have rented has always been clean and safe.

The two (2) bedroom property at the Surf Dweller, #709 was a fantastic location with direct views of the surf and the Gulf. The property is a bit older, but has been maintained very well and the size of the condo is worth the trade off. The customer service was impeccable and kept us abreast during the days leading to our arrival. The A/C worked very well and cooled the condo in a short period of time. The amenities are as listed and having the beach service with chairs and umbrella was certainly a plus. We will stay there again as it felt like a second home. The only recommendation is that the carpets be replaced with hardwood floors or carpet as they are very worn-out.

The view was spectacular and Brooks and Shorey were quick to address most issues. That's the positive part. I was a repeat customer and no one told me when I booked that a repeat customer got a 10% discount. I was told later that because the charge had already been processed thru AX that the discount could not be credited. Yet due to the other issues I had, they gave me a $144 credit for my inconvenience. Funny how one credit could be given but not another. The room was advertised as sleeping 8 with a King bed, 2 Queen beds, and a sleeper sofa. The sleeper sofa turned out to be a partially reclining sofa. Luckily we brought a blow up mattress so one of our grandkids had to sleep on the mattress on the floor. It was also advertised as having TV's in the living area, Master BR and 2nd bedroom. That was true except in the 2nd bedroom there was no cable connection so you couldn't watch it. The decor in the unit has not been updated since the 80's and the mattresses felt like the same. You had to turn the A/C down to 55 in order to get the room to cool below 75. The video card and Dryer didn't work but Brooks and Shorey were very prompt and professional in getting this corrected. You would think that considering all the issues they would give me the 10% repeat customer discount as well as the inconvenience credit. (Other than the free beach umbrella and chairs we took no advantage of any other amenities) We may be a repeat customer in the Surf Dweller but you can bet it won't be this room. With a little renovation this room could be a great place to stay.

Great place to stay. Great company friendly service. Enjoyed it. Clean place. Could use a couple more towels and updated glasstop stove but overall great place.

This condo was the perfect size for our family of 8. We had plenty of room and didn't feel crowded. However, I felt the condo could use better upkeep and cleaning. Upon arrival, we noticed dog hair (or some kind of animal) all over the patio furniture. Also, the furniture was very worn in the master bedroom. Although the owner provided additional fans, the condo was HOT and humid the entire time we were there, as if the thermostat had been permanently set on 76. Everything else (amenities) was satisfactory. The location and price was exactly what we were looking for. Also, management worked with us about changing reservation dates due to inclement weather. I would definitely use Brooks and Shorey again and recommend to others, but maybe not this exact property.

Very nice condo and they delivered new balcony furniture during our stay. We will return for future visits and love the extras Brooks and Storey include with their rentals.
Greg C. October 26, 2015
Excellant. No Problems. Everything was as advertised. Very clean.
Shelly T. July 20, 2016
The place was gorgeous, huge, clean, and in the right spot.....on the beach.

Very nice spacious 2 bedroom unit, well furnished. Very clean. Surf Dweller resort well appointed and maintained. During stay had issue with keyless entry/touch pad door knob. Within 35-40 minutes after call Brooks & Shorey maintenance had arrived on site and diagnosed and corrected issue with battery connections. Would be good response at any time but especially so at height of summer season.

Overall it was good but the first day the refrigerator was not working. I have a 2 year old so anyone with a child that age knows that's a big problem. They told me to use the freezer as the fridge. I did as they said and then everything froze because the freezer needed up cooling well and then we had maitinance coming in and out for the first few days so that was a inconvenience but other than that it was fine.
Charles R. July 25, 2016
Wonderful! Condo was beyond our expectations. The view from the balcony was amazing! From booking to check out, the staff and was very friendly and helpful even though we didn't have any issues or problems. My family had a great time at the beach. We will definitely be back!
Jason J. June 20, 2016
We had no complaints whatsoever. A very nice condo with a great view. Overall good experience from the Brooks and Shorey staff before and after the rental. We would definitely stay there again if possible.

Great condo. Would stay here again
Ayanna J. June 2, 2017
My family and I were very pleased with our condo stay because we walked into a clean and nicely decorated condo. The beach view from the living area was wonderful to see everyday and we loved that we had beach chairs set up everyday for our use. The Brooks and Shorey staff was so nice and helpful and kept me updated with emails regarding our condo rental transactions. We will use this Brooks and Shorey for future stays. We were very happy with everything.
Rose Mary T. April 27, 2017
everything was wonderful in every way. The only complaint I have was that the hot tub was not hot.
Christine M. October 3, 2016
The condo was so beautiful and well kept. The pictures were amazing but do not compare to the actual visit. I couldn't say enough about how wonderful it was. Definitely will go back!
Kathy A. July 11, 2016
We booked this unit at the last minute because our reservation at another condo fell through. This unit is VERY comfortable and BIG. I would stay here again anytime it's available when I'm in the area.
Mylinh T. July 1, 2017
The condo was nice but there was a couple things I was not happy about. One there was a note on the thermostat that said do not turn down below 75. That turning the thermostat under 75 there would be an extra surcharge. That made me felt very uncomfortable since this is a smart thermostat and the owner can be monitoring it. The thing is my family like to sleeping a little bit cold. During our trip at night it was uncomfortable feeling kind of hot but can't turn down the thermostat. I feel like if I pay a good amount of price to stay I should not feel like restrict to feel comfortable. Second, the toilet flush was so weak that I had to use the toilet plunger once or twice. Third, the shower head and water pressure was so weak too. Other than what was describe above everything else was nice but I would not rent this condo again.
