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.
Tracie, we apologize about the issue with dryer, we have notified housekeeping regarding this issue and they are aware to make sure that it is always emptied prior to any guest check in. We hope to see you again in the future

"Great location, love the Resort, Condo needs a lot of work"
Left on 06/21/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Tim L.Reviewed Jun 21, 2013Stayed Jun 2013
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.
Thank you for taking the time to fill out our review, we will make sure to pass along all of this information to the owners so that updates can be made to this unit. Please consider using Brooks and Shorey in the future, we can assist in picking out the perfect condo for you.

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.
We apologize for the dissatisfaction you found while staying in this unit, we have passed along this information to the owners of the condo, and suggested that updates be made. Thank you for using Brooks and Shorey Resorts as your vacation rental company and we hope to see you again in the future.

"UPDATING NEEDED A LITTLE IN 605."
Left on 03/18/2013 for a stay in March 2013 | John G.Reviewed Mar 18, 2013Stayed Mar 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

We visit the area often and after our first visit staying at Gulf Dunes, each return visit, we plan for staying at that location. Have always been pleased with our stays in every unit and Heather at the desk has always been one of the most pleasant and helpful people we have had the pleasure of dealing with.

I was traveling alone with 4 children. The last night of our stay 2 men tried to come in on us and we had to wait until a deputy arrived, because no security was on the property and no one was at the front desk at night. It was very scary for me. I will stay at this location everytime I can, but from now on I will have my husband with me. I am sure the 2 men who tried to come in on us relized that there were 3 teenage girls, a lady, and a small child by themselves, making us an easy target. Luckily the deputy caught the 2 men right outside of our door. The condo in which we stayed was beautiful and I am staying on the property again this year with my husband and children. I have also referred this property to several of my friends which I know that one has already made her reservations.
