Spacious older condo. Loved the large balcony. The interior needs some love. There was some peeling paint, the headboard was loose and a chair in the second bedroom needs replacing. There were no major issues and we would stay there again.

I loved the Oceanview! It was a home away from home with all of the essentials needed! Will definitely be back again! A++++

We enjoyed our stay so much, from start to finish! We arrived to find a sparkling clean, absolutely gorgeous home! I just can't imagine anyone not being pleased with this lovely place. It was unassuming and quietly elegant in decor, sticking to simple, neutral colors and style. It was extremely large (I'm guesstimating about 1400 sq ft) and every room was comfortable. The neutral calm inside decor yielded to the magnificent natural view from the huge balcony which spanned the entire front of the home, across the living area and master bedroom. The view and beach access was terrific with the beach just steps away. We soaked up the sound of the surf and smell of the salt air during our stay. I loved the privacy of having the bedrooms separated by two full baths and the convenience of all the closet space along with storage in the dressers and chests of drawers. My husband was happy with the TVs and cable service provided. I was thrilled with the large, fully appointed kitchen and the convenience of having a washer/dryer. The internet service provided was fast and reliable. We slept well in the comfortable bed with high end linens. Plenty of towels were provided, along with a generous initial supply of bath tissue and other essentials. There were games, beach chairs, beach matts, and an umbrella provided in one of the closets. Communication with the managing entity was great and I would not hesitate to rent this unit again.

My family came and spent a week here toward the end of October, and we had a lovely visit in Fort Walton. We loved our stay at Surf Dweller, and we would definitely come back and stay in this unit.

Pros:
- HUGE, affordable apartment with a well-stocked kitchen
- Huge double balcony that extends across the master bedroom
- Nice televisions with Wifi/Netflix connectivity
- Great pool with a kiddie pool for the little ones

Cons:
- The beds and pillows are pretty mediocre. They felt old and would benefit from being updated.
- This unit does NOT include free beach service (AKA umbrellas/chairs to use on the beach). Every unit I've stayed at in the past included this service automatically, so I didn't think to look for it. I went to use a chair on the beach, and the employee told me the 406 unit doesn't include the service. He wanted $150 cash for chair/umbrella use that week. I bought two chairs and an umbrella at Publix for $40 instead (which we left in the unit - you're welcome! :] )

Come stay at this wonderful Surf Dweller unit for a lovely vacation! :)

We requested an early check-in, which was denied for “extra COVID-19 cleaning,” which was understandable. BUT, as soon as we walked in, the horrible smell was unnoticeable. The entire place smelled like something was rotting. Then, the master toilet was broken. Fast forward to that night, both shower stoppers broken. And on top of all that, the water took forever to get warm, not even hot. The bottom of the kitchen cabinets had clearly experienced some kind of water as they were in terrible condition. There is also no TV in the spare bedroom. The TV in the living room has damage and is not clear. The carpet had an awful smell also. Thankfully we brought cleaning supplies and fresheners. I am posting this review for anyone planning to stay here for a lengthy time, as we did, it is not worth it!! And for our early check in to be denied for COVID-19 cleaning is an absolute joke! This place was definitely not thoroughly cleaned. I would not recommend staying here. P.S., we did call about the smell, toilet, and showers. They sent a maintenance guy who immediately smelled it when he walked in and said it was the garbage disposal and set up an electronic air freshener. Other than that, we had to fix everything else ourselves.
Manager response:
Hi Katie, Thank you so much for this feedback! We will use it to improve this home for future reservations. We are very glad to see that the issue with the smelly disposal and the tub stopper was fixed within 3 hours of you reporting it to us. We hope we get the opportunity to host you again sometime in the near future.

On the beach. Very clean. Good price.

We really loved the view from our condo. It had everything we needed. The kitchen and bathrooms are a bit outdated but other than that, it was a great place. I wouldn’t mind booking this place again in the future!

Elevators were not crowded or beach like some places. Condo needs a little bling but we’re there for the beach and not the bling.

Overall, we were very happy in this condo. First the great, the condo is very roomy and comfortable. We were a group of three but there is room for far more.

The beds are comfortable, the living room has plenty of seating, and the biiiig balcony directly faces the gulf. The complex itself has a pool and tennis courts. They provide carts for luggage or to transport smaller things. There are restrooms near the beach and you can rent chairs right at the end of the Condo's walkway over the flats.
The only drawback that I can see is that the kitchen and bathrooms are a little outdated, which did not affect our stay one little bit. I would stay in this exact same spot again and again.

The condo was dated but very roomy and comfortable. Well equipped with everything we needed. The view was amazing and very short walk to the beach. Internet service was spotty at best but we didn’t need it so it wasn’t an issue for us. Would definitely book again.
Manager response:
Thank you for leaving feedback, Trenton! We are pleased to know you enjoyed your stay at this spacious, Gulf-front home. We apologize for any trouble with internet availability, and we'll check to see if any adjustments are needed. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
