    We really enjoyed our stay at Gulf Dunes 208. The condo was decorated very beachy and we loved it! The bed in the master was super comfy! The bunk room is small but serves its purpose. The view is fantastic! Would have liked to have a few more bath towels and toilet paper provided, but other than that it was an excellent stay :)

    a guest from Midland, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We have always heard about the beautiful beaches in Destin and decided we needed to go. A friend recommended Okaloosa Island to us because it was a lot quieter and they were right. Exactly what we were looking for!
    Unfortunately the week before we were leaving we were contacted by Brooks and Shorey to let us know that work would be done on the building while we were there and there was a possibility that we would not have access to our balcony from 9-5. They did offer for us to stay at a discount or move to another condo but could not guarantee where we would be at. We decided to stay put and take a chance. Well the workers were on our balcony but of course we were on the beach from 9-5 so it wasn’t that big of a deal except for the noise.
    Marianne with Brooks and Shorey was great to work with and called us about 3pm to let us know that our condo was ready and did break the news that the workers were there. She quickly reminded us that we had great weather in the forecast for our stay and that the water was super calm!
    The condo was clean and the beds were okay comfort wise. Perfect size for 3 girls and could maybe do a 4th and still be comfortable. A burner on the stove did not work, we let Marianne know and it was fixed by the time we got back from the beach. Would definitely recommend Gulf Dunes 208 and Brooks and Shorey.

    • Manager Responded on 5/26/2019

      WOW! Thank you so much for all your feedback! We are trying our best to keep everyone of our guests informed of the balcony railing work, unfortunately weather and other aspects delay the progress without notification and unexpectedly making it super hard to keep up with the exact schedule. But we are so grateful to you for your patience during this little bit of inconvenience!!! We could not ask for anything more than your understanding and cooperation..thank you for both, thank you for the kind remarks and we truly look forward to your return visits to Okaloosa Island and be sure to call us to make your reservation so we can be sure your discount for being a return guest gets applied accurately!

    a guest from Downsville, LA recommends this vacation rental

    It was very crowded but it is a bigger complex then what we normally stay at.. The young men working the chairs on the beach did not ask one time if we wanted our umbrellas moved, not sure if that is in their job description but they have always done this over the 15 plus years we have been coming to the beach. In the guest bathroom it looked like black mold above the shower head on the ceiling.

    • Manager Responded on 8/15/2018

      Thank you for staying with us. The occupancy at the Gulf Dunes is adequate to the size of the property and extent of the beach in front of the property. The beach is full in July , but never overcrowded on Okaloosa Island. The beach service works hard to accommodate all guest equally. We will check the guest bathroom - thank you for mentioning that. We hope that you will return in the future - there are a few smaller properties on the Island that may meet your needs a little better, like Dune Pointe or Summerlin.

    Kristina Y from Austin, TX recommends this vacation rental

    I know the cleaning was sped up because we were coming from a different unit, but we found trash under the coffee table and overall it seemed a bit unclean. Room 401 was spotless though! Also, we were kept awake every night by the neighbors above us.

    • Manager Responded on 7/19/2018

      We appreciate your multiple bookings with Brooks and Shorey Resorts and are so sorry your second week on Gulf Coast wasn't up to your standards...housekeeping did the best with the smaller allotted time frame in between the previous guest's departure and your early arrival into that next unit. That few minutes makes a world of difference to housekeeping so we appreciate your patience and understanding on this aspect of unit 208. We are so glad you enjoyed both condos though and sorry for the overjoyed neighbors above you, unfortunately there are some visitors that forget to be considerate of those around them. We do have a great non-emergency sheriff's office in Fort Walton Beach, specifically for Okaloosa Island and those rowdy guests as you've experienced so please we encourage you to reach out to them next time there's too much noise on property and they can come quickly assist you. Thank you for booking with us, and we look forward to your return visits to our beautiful Gulf Coast.

      Thank you for your feedback. Alberto did surprise us early this year, but we really wish you would've stayed to experience the brief bit of rain and wind we had as the very next day the sun was out and the beach was beautiful. Fortunately this storm was nothing like it was being reported and we are now beautiful sunny Florida Panhandle again! Please come back to see us again soon!

    Katy M from Madisonville, KY does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Would stay at Gulf Dunes in a unit or managed by Brooks and Shorey, all staffing bend the truth or changed there rules and regulations with every different staff member I spoke with starting in Feb 2017 when booked, even spoke with an owner which was very rude and spoke down about his staff, which was very sad, feel sorry for the employees that have to work for him! Only reason we started with Brooks and Shorey was because we came for a wedding 2 nights and the bride had book with them.

    • Manager Responded on 9/5/2017

      We aren't surprised to see your unfortunately negative feedback as you did have so many issues upon your arrival, with our check-in time. We have always had a check-in time that starts at 4PM and this has always always been Brooks and Shorey Resorts policy. It's absolutely everywhere in everything we advertise. It's included in the rental contract that was sent immediately to you on the day you booked in February so you knew the day you booked and paid your 15% that check in starts at 4PM and can take up til 6PM on some days. We did take your numerous calls and even your numerous confrontations to our front desk staff at the Gulf Dunes by you and the others in your traveling party you sent down that day. The bride had a beautiful wedding and seemed to have had such a lovely time and we are disappointed that you have such negative things to say about us, after all our policy has always been the exact same and we have never ever promised anyone an early check in. We hope you visit Okaloosa Island again to enjoy our beautiful Emerald Coast.

    Our family stayed at Gulf Dunes for a National dance competition held at the Emerald Coast Convention Center. The location and view of the beach was fantastic. The condo was spacious, had everything we needed including a washer & dryer. It's great to go home from vacation with clean laundry!! The only issue I experienced was the condo wasn't ready upon check in time.

    • Manager Responded on 7/14/2016

      Our policy regarding check in time states that check-in time is after 4:00 p.m.; checkout time is 10:00 a.m. Due to our high standards for cleanliness, not all units will be ready for check-in promptly at 4:00 p.m. We ask for your patience and suggest that you have alternate plans available between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. in case the unit is not yet ready. We do our best to get you into your condo as quickly as possible but unfortunately sometimes this takes a bit longer on heavier check in dates or if the previous tenants left the condo messier then usual. We are absolutely thrilled that you enjoyed yourself during your beachfront vacation at the Gulf Dunes 208, this is certainly a lovely rental with a central location! We hope you are able to return for more sunshine and surf again soon!

    a guest from Ballwin, MO recommends this vacation rental

    The pictures do not do justice to the sense of size and space when you enter the unit. Easily accommodated 6 adults and a few little ones. Lovely balcony view with dolphins to see each morning. Nice beach procedures where the staff saves your umbrella and chairs for you even if you leave the beach for hours. Just leave your towel on a chair. Incredible beaches. Well located for all attractions. Mattress updates needed in some beds. Only real issue was all grills are charcoal which makes for long waits if you want a grill. Going to gas grills would be a big help. Nonetheless highly recommended and a superb value.

      Thank you for the wonderful review, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay, we will pass along to the owner regarding the mattresses. We hope to see you again soon.

    So enjoyed our stay at Gulf Dunes condo 208. Clean, beautiful view of beach, nice balcony with view of pool as well. Plenty of room, not that we were inside much. I do think it is time to put new mattress on all the beds though. Quiet except for people moving chairs above us. Carpet would help that. Would definitely stay here again.

    This is our second year to stay in this condo. We love the spacious balcony where we spent every morning with coffee and evenings with wine. Watched the dolphins and pelicans, and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The people working there are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The condo is most comfortable and the rates are very reasonable. Could use a little updating and a few minor repairs. Would definitely stay here in the future.

    Great place for the price. The decor was outdated but it didn't matter to my family. We care more about cleanliness and accommodations which were both acceptable. The bunk bed room was extremely small. It did give us extra sleeping room but there was not any space for baggage. Overall, we would recommend the unit and enjoyed our stay at Gulf Dunes.

    We had a great 9 day stay here. There were a few minor maintenance issues, but when I reported them to the front desk, someone came and fixed them very quickly. The condo is right on the ocean and has a beautiful view. Bring scissors though, I couldn't find any. The rental comes with a free amenities package from ASI. In addition to the free golf, scuba diving, etc, they offer free round trip transportation to the airport for up to 3 or 4 people with your reservation. The management at the condo don't seem to know that this benefit is offered, but it is on the paperwork they gave me. My sister got the free transportation to the airport on her way home, and she only paid a required $10 tip. If you call about it and they don't know what you are talking about, ask them for the phone number for ASI and go directly through them.

    • Manager Responded on 5/21/2014

      We are happy that you had such an enjoyable stay with us and yes we recommend that if you are looking for transportation to the airport, please call ASI, as that is not a service of Brooks and Shorey Resorts.

    Absolutely LOVED the spacious balcony, and spent many hours there. Sunrises with coffee and watching the dolphins play and sunsets with a glass of wine and relaxing. Since we ate a lot of great food while in Florida, the 3rd floor was perfect for taking the steps and burning off some of those calories! The beds were very comfortable so we had most restful sleep at night and a few naps during the day. Mary Ann, who was in the office when we arrived and most of the week we were there was awesome! She was very helpful, and always with a smile. We had a very pleasant experience while staying at the Gulf Dunes. Thanks to all responsible!!!

    Julia S from Stephenville, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We had sufficient space,but the entry rug was not glued down in one corner, a few busted drawers in front bedroom. Need to stock a few more spoons in kitchen. Had to buy a scrubber and liquid dish soap.
    Tues - Friday morning we had to look at other people's tents, coolers and chairs out on the beach in the morning - SPOILED the View - There should be a policy regarding this and it should be enforced. we are paying for our "view"! Also, owners could add a TV guide - I made my own. All appliances worked fine. Overall we had no major complaints and would stay at Gulf Dunes again, although maybe in a different unit. Families in 417 and 517 had much more updated furnishings, games,books,nice hangers, nicer larger flat screen TVs etc and a side balcony view. Those units were very nice but cost more.

    Also our family members in the other two units were in an entirely different building so it was not convenient to get there - down our two flights of stairs, under the garage, up the 5 flights to their units. There is an elevator though, but we did not know we would be in an entirely separate building.

    Also, they had garage parking and we did not. It is not a major thing, just stuff we noticed - their units had more amenities than ours - so if that's important to you check it out. A good thing was the elevators and the carts for loading and unloading bags and groceries. we couln't have done it otherwise.
