Our condo was perfect for our 3 day weekend. It was perfectly located to all of our activities. It was so nice to have the free golf and skorling not to mention the lounge chairs and umbrella at the beach, which is a must!!

Not the Vacation I was hoping for

Reviewer Comments:

I can't give any 5 stars. When we checked in the Kitchen area smelled like someone throw-up. As the days past the smell had gotten worst. On Tuesday I went to the office to let them know about the smell. They scheduled a time for the next day at 10:00 A.M. the maintenance crew showed up exactly at 10 (very impressive). when they pulled out the Fridge the smell intensified. When they pulled out the pan from the bottom there was melted Ice Cream that had spoiled and where the terrible smell came from. The maintenance crew took it outside to wash and bleach the pan. It still took a full day for it to clear out. Another thing that happened is the ceiling fan light cover fell down and broke to pieces everywhere. That could have ended badly if one of our kids were underneath. This has nothing to do with the property but the beach had dead fish everywhere.

Owner's Response: We're glad our first class maintenance team was able to get to you on time and address the issue directly and immediately. We appreciate your patience with this uncommon issue and we offer our sincere apologies for all the negativity it forced on your vacation with us. Our beaches are clean again and the water is gorgeous emerald green again, unfortunately mother nature does shift the waters sometimes bringing issues, but these usually don't last long!! The Gulf of Mexico is quick is wash away any problems that arise on our beautiful shores. We appreciate you staying with us and we hope you visit the Gulf Coast again in the near future!

Reviewer Comments:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the gulf dunes. The location was perfect, steps from the beach, and the unit had all the space we needed. I will say that they need to invest in some decent mattresses! They're awful! It felt like we were sleeping on a brick the whole week. Also, i will make sure that when i stay again that it will be a condo thats not on the first floor and definitely not over the pool. That was quite noisy when trying to get my baby to sleep! But overall we had a good stay.

Owner's Response: We thoroughly enjoyed having you at the Gulf Dunes! What a great condominium property, all the amenities one could need and proximity to the restaurants and shops at the beginning of the island-win-win!! Unfortunately peak summer season does mean more people and larger crowds, we are so sorry for the rowdy/loud neighbors, hopefully this didn't ruin all your relaxation time!! We'll look into the age of these mattresses and see what we can do, unfortunately mattress comfort is a huge personal preference making it seriously difficult to please everyone..but we also want to make sure they are up to standards. Thank you for all your feedback and for staying with Brooks and Shorey please come see us again soon!

Ultimate convenience to beach and activities. Very well supplied and beautifully clean. Greatly enjoyed time with kids and family rather than lots of driving thru town. Luckily we had right weekend for pirate festival and it was great fun for all kids.

Gulf Dunes Condos are peaceful, roomy, and in the perfect location on the Island. Billy Bowlegs is a family fun for everyone and it's here every year!

Reviewer Comments:

I booked this through VRBO after someone told me they would be stating there as well. I was disappointed on many levels. 1. The price I paid was twice as much as my friend who stayed in the exact same unit. 2. There were no amenities like mini shampoo or conditioner. for almost $1,200.00 for 5 nights I would think they would spoil you a little...... they do not. 3. The beds are all very hard and uncomfortable. It would be nice to sleep comfortably while on vacation. 4. THe VCR had no even though you got free dvd rentals, controlling the vcr was all manual. 5. You get one trash bag and are told to bring your own. You get one, undersized roll of paper towels and no dishwasher soap. They cheaped out for the price. No coffee, not even a welcome size or nothing. 6. You pay a cleaning fee and yet you have to strip the beds and take the trash and put your dishes in the dish washer and clean them with your soap. I could have stayed at the hotel and had daily cleaning for way less. I do not recommend this place. For this late in the season it was not worth the money.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry your vacation in this condo was not up to your standards! We truly can't believe your disappointment. Please when you are looking to book your next condo, give us a CALL. We are in the office every day of the week and we are one of the only rental companies who do have people answering the phones still. We would LOVE to help you narrow down availability according to what YOU like and desire in a vacation condo-that way we have the chance to get you a condo that fits your needs specifically. VRBO implements a service fee when you book through them, if you book through us directly you save about 10%. Please remember this for the future as well! Our sincere apologies for your disappointment. Again, we are so so sorry for your disappointment we hope to have another chance to get you in the perfect vacation home.
