“Fabulous location condo needs updating!”

Brooks & Shorey are always professional and helpful and make the vacation a happy experience. The Gulf Dunes is an o.K. property that needs TLC in upkeep. Apt. 514 needs some updating in the linens and mattresses, stocking the kitchen a little better, fixing the screen door to the terrace. All in all we love Ft. Walton Beach and the condo was secondary to the location.
We apologize that your stay was not as good as it could have been, we will pass along to the owner that updates should be done, thank you for taking the time to fill out or survey and we hope to see you again in the future.

Condo was great, beach was perfect! The only negative was the quality of the bedding. The king bed was okay but the twin mattresses on the bunk beds are horrible. Not even really a mattresses. Just a very thin (2 or 3 inch) pad. They have wooden cross supports that make it impossible to sleep comfortably. We fought each day over who would have to sleep on them the following night. Pull out is not great either, but better than bunks. All other accommodations were great.

We enjoyed our vacation very much. Gulf Dunes was a very quiet area. Located within a few steps from a beautiful beach and just minutes to some wonderful restaurants. We enjoyed the balcony that looked out over the gulf. We saw numerous dolphins every day playing in the water.The condo was clean for the most part, there was a few basic dishes,toaster,blender and few pieces of silverwares. There was not any basic items like laundry soap, salt pepper, paper towels,toilet tissue. we had to go and purchase these items. the last condo we rented has the start to all basic items and made the inital day much smoother for everyone. There was plenty towels(bring your own beach). Overall I would stay there again, but i felt like it was a bit over priced for week in October.

We have stayed in several units in Gulf Dunes and have always been satisfied. The unit was clean enough but I think it could use some updating of furniture,bedding,and kitchen. It is starting to show wear and I think if you want to keep getting good rentals these things need looked into. Also, another suggestion is for the units to have beach towels so that people who fly in don't have to pack those. I have stayed at several places around the states and most of them provide beach towels. Also, trial size detergent and dish soap would be appreciated since we have to make sure laundry and dishes are clean. Overall, our stay was great since we know the area so well. Can't ask for better beaches!

The mattress in the unit was AWFUL. The kitchen was not the best equiped...OK, but not great. Other than that, everything was great. On the last night we were there, there was really a lot of noise during the "quiet time"...where was security? All in all, I would stay here again.

My husband and I stayed the week in 514. The condo was clean and comfortable. We had not been to Ft. Walton in about 8 years, and we will be back next year. Also, we used the voucher for Captain Kid's it was wonderful. Great idea.

We had a very enjoyable vacation this past year and have already booked again for 2008. Brooks & Shorey make it so very easy to find the perfect resort for our vacation. I lived in Ft. Walton as a teenager as my father was in the U.S. Air Force stationed at Eglin AFB. I have brought my children to Ft. Walton almost every year for our summer vacations together. My children now bring their family's to the best beaches in Florida. We always have a fun time. You don't have to go very far for great places to eat or shop. We love to sit on the patio of our room and watch the beautiful sunsets and the blue waters and white sands.We can't wait for our next visit to the Greatest Vacation Place in Florida.
