Reviewer Comments:

My wife and I spent a few days here to relax. The beach was great and the complex has free chairs with umbrellas. The complex is a little dated and unkempt in areas. The unit has been updated and is adequate but wouldn't recommend to friends.

Owner's Response: How unfortunate to hear your less than enthusiastic review with very few details on exactly what issues you came across that led to the low ratings. This condo is updated and very adorable and you said it's more economical than a hotel and you get an entire home to apologize Gulf Dunes didn't impress and we hope you were able to enjoy the sun and sand.

Reviewer Comments:

Our vacation rental was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. I would say the only complaint I had was that the pull out sofa bed was very uncomfortable. We wanted to use it since it was right by the sliding glass doors and we could here the gulf at night, but the bed/mattress was very uncomfortable. Other than that though we had a very nice stay. Everything in the rental was clean and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

Owner's Response: We are so elated to know you enjoyed your stay with us! Unfortunately, as the units are privately owned all we can do is let the owner of the unit know of your recommendation of the pullout sofa. We do want to remind you we have 160 units throughout Okaloosa Island , please call us when you are ready to book your next getaway and one of our live representatives will be more than happy to assist you in finding the perfect condo!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall the condo was ok. However, the bed covers appeared old and dirty. I didn't feel clean sleeping with them so I just took them off the bed. It was cool this time of year and there wasn't a blanket that fit the bed. The tv on the wall had cords hanging all down the wall and there was really no charm whatsoever about this property. The bedroom was not on the ocean side and that was a negative as well.

Our experience was good. The amenities were everything we needed for our stay. The bathrooms are rather small, but we made it work.

Owner's Response: We appreciate you taking the time to submit feedback from your stay in 605 at the Gulf Dunes! This one bedroom top floor unit is a gem. We are thrilled you were able to enjoy the amenities our SANDSHORE package brings with your reservation-movie rentals, BEACH SERVICE, golf, dolphin cruise. Our apologies the one bedroom one and half bath floorplan seemed a bit small to you. We keep the official floorplans to each condo on our website so you can see the setup. The two bedroom condos there have an extra bunk room-they afford lots of space, maybe you'd be interested in that? Also you can choose as condo with the MASTER bedroom on the beach so you can wake up looking at the Gulf of Mexico. Give us a call next time you're planning your vacation so we can be sure to get you in a condo that has the size that you would like. Come back soon for more swim suits and flip flops!

Reviewer Comments:

The condo overall was nice, but not quite as pictured. The sofa has definitely been used a lot since this picture. The floor constantly stayed sandy, would have been nice to have a rug by the couch. The comforter in the master needs to be updated. Overall I would rate the condo a B. We enjoyed our trip and will return.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, being DIRECTLY on the white sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico does cause sand to be present in every aspect of your day! Thank goodness the sand here is white, soft and no rocks or pebbles to worry with! I'm sorry you felt the floors in your condo we not up to your expectations, this does come with renting a beach front vacation home sometimes. One of those things you wouldn't think of while planning, but you can't avoid while here!! This 605 condo has recently been updated and was totally redone. We'll send out manager to inspect the couch and see about its shape, as it is not old at all. We'll see to it that we get this condo back up to par with its updates, so that future guests don't feel it is worth a B rating. We certainly strive to make sure all our rentals are the best they can be! Thank you for booking through Brooks and Shorey Resorts, we appreciate you and we hope to see you again in the near future to Fort Walton Beach!
