“Love this place!”
This was our third year renting from Brooks & Shorey and I am sure we will be back again next year! We loved The Palms - the location was great, the view is awesome! It was perfect size for our family. The only problems we had were the sliding deck door and garbage disposal. The door was stuck- we could not get it open/closed. We called the management office and they said they would send maintance but they never showed up. We just used the bedroom sliding door. The garabage disposal did not work & stunk really bad every time we ran the water. My husband found the problem (someone dropped a metal bottle opener in the disposal). Once he cleaned out the rusty metal it worked. Over all, we had a great stay at The Palms and would stay there again! PS... Loved the cabana boy too! He was funny and showed the kids how to catch crabs.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to write this review, your feedback is much appreciated! We will be sure to pass your observations nto our maintenance department. We look forward to welcoming you back to Fort Walton Beach again soon!
“HAPPY, BUT WITH SOME RESERVATIONS”
WE HAVE BEEN COMING TO THIS PROPERTY FOR THE PAST 15 YEAR5. THERE HAVE BEEN 3 MANAGEMENT CHANGES. EACH TIME THINGS GET WORSE AS FAR AS CUSTOMER SERVICE IS CONCERNED. THE ELEVATOR HAS ALWAYS HAD PROBLEMS. THIS TIME WE HAD THREE DAYS OF REALLY SCARY TRIPS IN IT. THEN, MAGICALLY, IT WAS FIXED! AND THE REST OF OUR STAY, IT WAS QUIET AND EFFICIENT!! WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG TO FIX AND WHY ONLY NOW????? (JULY 2013)PLEASE INSTRUCT YOUR PERSONNEL AT OFFICE TO BE MORE WELCOMING AND MUCH MORE EFFICIENT!!! THE YOUNG LADY WE HAD ACTED LIKE WE WERE INTERRUPTING HER AND IT TOOK FOREVER FOR HER TO COMPLETE THE PROCESS. OTHER THAN THESE ISSUES AND HAVING TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE ON THE BEACH WHO SHOUT, PLAY LOUD MUSIC AND BLOW SMOKE IN YOUR DIRECTION, THE PROPERTY IS GREAT AND UNIT 505 IS REALLY NICE. WE LOVE COMING HERE!!!
Response from the manager Hi Doris, thank you for your review! It was good to see you again this year. Unfortunately, the change of management is in the hands of the HOA; they decide who they would like to service the elevators and the common areas. We are glad they were able to fix the elevator issue during your stay - hopefully no more scary trips! We are delighted that you like unit 505 - it's a nice corner unit with excellent views! Thank you for taking time to let us know your thoughts and we look forward to seeing you next year!
“Good location and view with a few issues”
The condo had a good location with an excellent view from both the balcony and the master bedroom. The distance to the beach was short, and we enjoyed the covered parking. The pool, however, was very small, and the one elevator was way too slow and smelled bad. The unit was fairly clean, and was equipped decently, however, the pricepoint during peak season was too high for a standard (non-luxury) condo. We did not have a bad stay, but I think I will be looking elsewhere when we come back next year.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking time to review your trip! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and had a good time.

“I wish I could stay there forever!”
We had an awesome time....we loved our condo...never wanted to leave....the location was awesome...away from the hussle and bustle.. but still convenient to the grocery, some shops and restaurants.....the beach was not crowded....people were friendly...the elevator is slow, but so what we came to Florida to relax and slow down...the parking place was tight, but that was ok too....the view and breeze off the water made it all worth while....probably the best vacation we have ever taken..we enjoyed swimming and my son fished and caught three baby sharks and a salt water catfish right in front of the condo.. we saw dolphins almost every day..the best place in the world to unwind....closest place to heaven I have found in this world..we would move the chairs away from our bedroom door so the first thing we saw in the morning was that ocean view.....we had friends in the condo next door and that made it even more special...I hope and pray we can take another trip there before too long! If I were made of money I would be trying to buy the place instead of renting it! Highly recommend this place!
“The Palms 505”
Loved the accommodations. Ceiling fan in the bedroom was noisy and wobbly and the carpets/rugs needed cleaned. Other than that it was great. We'll be back.
“505 Palms review June 2013”
The condo was clean...except the denim covers on the couch and loveseat,it mad me uncomfortable to sit on them. The master bed was very confortable, but the twin bed closest to the closets squeaked even withouut any movement, it sounds like a bird chirping all the time, and the teenager who slept there didn't get much sleep! Everything else was exceptional, staff at Brooks and Shorey was very professional and literally found me a place to rent THE day I was arriving in Fort Walton. That parking under the building will mmake you become an expert at parking your vehicle though....tight squeeze
Very nice unit. Will come back next year.
“Florida vacation condo”
The rental was nice with a great view. We were unfamiliar with the area and would next time stay in Destin because that is where we spent most of our time. No real complaints about this property. It was a bit outdated and needed a lot of paint fix-ups, but for the price we felt it was decent. Saw the dolphins every morning off the balcony!
“Loved the corner unit...views from 2 sides were great!”
Loved the unit! Small but nicely layed out. A couple of dead Palmetto bugs were in the master bath & closet on arival but. I understand they could have entered when the air unit was being serviced. Slow, slow elevator & if you drive a large SUV, good luck finding parking under the building or outside in the few spots that were hardly available. Loved the complimentary beach chairs & umbrella. The denim sofa was cute & very comfortable.
“Lovely condo with a spectacular view”
We would like to thank the owners for sharing their lovely condo with our family. The condo was is very good shape and this area of the beach was never crowded. We are already planning a trip for next year and will book this unit again.
