Welcome to Gulf Dunes Resort, on beautiful Okaloosa Island. The powdery, sugar-white sands found here are unique to this exclusive area, and if you are fortunate enough to vacation here, you'll experience a beach vacation like nowhere else in the US. The island atmosphere of Okaloosa eliminates the crowded found in nearby Destin, while putting you within minutes of Destin Harbor and all of the attractions of the Emerald Coast.

Gulf Dunes Resort, unit 309 is decorated in a fun and colorful theme, offering an away-from-home feel the minute you walk in. You'll immediately notice the breathtaking, direct ocean view from your private fourth floor balcony. This upscale condominium is perfect for a family of 6, seeking a direct ocean view from the private balcony. The master bedroom has balcony access with views of the ocean, has a king bed with tv, and a private master bath with a double vanity. The second bedroom has a queen bed and direct access to the 2nd bathroom. The bonus room has bunk beds, perfect for kids. There is a full size laundry room for your extras, and includes a full size washer and dryer. Tile and carpeted floors throughout, granite countertops, upgraded appliances and original decor are luxury upgrades and unique to unit 309. Playing dolphins and daily sunrises are visible from your balcony, which is a perfect 4 floors above sea level. Okaloosa Island is located just west of Destin and Harborwalk Village. All of Destin's attractions are within minutes of your door while you enjoy the seclusion and beauty of Okaloosa Island. Visit this unit, and see for yourself.

We provide bed linens, blankets, bath towels, etc. Please bring your own beach towels. Each Gulf Dunes unit has a private washer and dryer for your convenience. This rental will also include free WiFi and free Beach Service (1 set).

About the area: Okaloosa Island is part of a 30 mile stretch of continuous natural sand barrier. The ocean here is typically as clear as any water can be, with an emerald green color unique to this small area. The sands are pure white and powdery, like sugar, and the beaches are kept immaculately clean and safe by wonderful Okaloosa County authorities. There is plenty of fun right here on the island, from putt putt golf, to outdoor grills to fine dining and nightlife. We have a fishing pier just a mile away, which is also the home of the original Gulfarium Dolphin Exhibit. Take the kids to the Gulfarium to see dolphins perform, as well as their friends the walrus, sea lions, and penguins. They'll love it.

Okaloosa Island is located within Fort Walton Beach and near world famous Destin. Destin, a beautiful 10 minute drive to the East, where she will meet you with a picturesque view of the Destin Harbor at Harborwalk Village. Destin is home to the largest private Gulf Fishing Fleet and busiest charter deep sea fishing fleet in the Southeast. If you are interested in good seafood, then just pick one of Destin's many dockside grills for a taste of the day's fresh catch.

The more adventurous may enjoy a jet ski dolphin tour, or a parasailing adventure. You may also find bungee jumping, go karting, golf, putt putt golf, water theme parks, outlet shopping and much more. Bring your family to our beautiful coastline, and take home memories of a lifetime.

This unit is professionally managed, which ensures that you will receive friendly, professional service from reservation to departure. Your vacation accommodations will be clean and functional.

"If this was a star scale, I would rate Sunset Resort Rentals and Gulf Dunes 309 4.7 stars! We loved our first stay on Okaloosa Island and will be coming back in the future! Unit was as described, clean and welcoming. The property had all the basic necessities (toilet paper, paper towels, soap bars, dishwasher detergent, trash bags, etc); we had to purchase dish soap, sponge and salt & pepper/spices, which was fine as they stated they weren't included. The appliances have been updated to stainless. The master bed was comfortable but the huge armoire could probably be taken out to allow more room. The guest bed was very firm. Both bathrooms were clean and neat. The views from the balcony were second to none and worth every penny spent for an oceanfront condo. The complimentary beach service was definitely an added bonus, as We spent nearly the whole vacation on the beach, which was absolutely beautiful and very clean. The unit parking spot is covered and right next to the elevators, which was really nice. Continuous communication from reservation to checkout made the process very simple working with Sunset very easy. Only things making this not a 5 star would be: 1. There is no outdoor table for the balcony. We would've loved to eat out there a few nights/mornings. We always drink our coffee to the sunrise, while the kids are still in bed. 2. Kitchen skillets and cooking utensils are due for an upgrade. Skillets were very scratched, which is likely from the use of metal utensils, as there weren't any silicone spatulas. 3. The unit was so clean, the smell was overwhelming when we got there. We had to turn hvac system off and open front and rear doors to allow unit to air out. Even after our stay, the cleaning smell was still evident. We will definitely be back."

"Just returned from a wonderful week at Gulf Dunes 309. The condo is perfectly situated on the beach - not too high or too low. The beach is beautiful, and the free beach service made going to the beach so easy. The condo is nicely done with the bathrooms and kitchen looking recently updated. The king in primary bedroom was comfortable with a gorgeous view right out the sliding balcony doors - and you couldn't beat the sound of the waves. Everything was clean upon our arrival and accessing the room with keyless entry was seamless. The booking process was easy and all communications I had with Sunset Resort Rentals were pleasant and efficient. This unit has the absolute best parking space in the complex. It's covered and right by the lobby and entrance to pool area that leads to the beach. It's nice and wide making it easy to park without being cramped by another vehicle. Do note that there's a 6'6" clearance to access the covered parking. There's also ample outside parking. You can walk to Stewby's across the street, and both of their restaurants are good. Favorite breakfast place by far was the Chicken N the Egg - though you do have to drive there. The chairs on the balcony have been upgraded from the pictures making it comfortable to sit on the balcony. We cannot speak to the comfort of the queen or bunk beds as we didn't sleep on them. The condo is great and our daughter and son-in-law have already booked it for August. If we were to suggest any updates it would be for the living room furniture which is okay but not as upgraded or comfortable as the rest. Also, they've used such a nice comforter on the king bed that it was quite heavy for us so adding a lighter blanket to that room would be nice. Honestly, that's the only two things we can even mention in the way of additions or improvements. You won't be sorry you booked this condo. So many places complain of waiting on elevators, and it just wasn't an issue during our stay. Also, this unit is next to the last in the building putting it right by the stairwell that you could easily access. We enjoyed the location because it was easy to go to Fort Walton or Destin. A must visit place is Parlor Doughnuts in Fort Walton - the doughnuts are amazing. The kitchen looked to be furnished adequately, but we didn't cook while there. They did have both a Keurig and drip coffeemake. Book now - you'll be glad you did."

There is plenty of kitchen items that are needed for preparing and cooking meals. Bedrooms are well arranged and beds are comfy. The seating in the living room is comfy and allows for a great view of the beautiful crashing waves. Many times we sit on the balcony and watch the dolphins play. We love that this unit comes with a covered parking space. The reservation staff is top notch they are always ready and willing to help with the reservation process and with great suggestions on where to stay. A five star company and a five star stay!"

"Gulf Dunes 309 was a nice condo for the price! It was easily accessible and the parking spot was super convenient, as it's as close as you can be to the front desk, elevators & the beach access! The condo was pretty clean and had everything that we needed. Check in and Check out were a breeze! The unit was spacious and although we only had 4 people, it could easily sleep 8. The only complaint that I have is that the beds were not comfortable. We slept in the master bedroom with the king size bed and it was hard as a rock! It needs a mattress topper or to be replaced altogether. The condominium is close to several restaurants and a short drive to Destin. Overall, we had a fabulous time! We would definitely rent at Gulf Dunes again!"

"Very nice condo. The balcony is huge and directly ocean front. Everything was clean and well decorated. We never had a long wait for the elevator. The ocean front bedroom is definitely the best of the two. The connecting bathroom is large. The second bedroom has very little drawer space and the bathroom is adequate, but small. The room with the bunk beds is tiny and the ladder to the top bunk is kind of lacking in stability. The pool is small, but OK if there isn't a crowd. Not a long walk to the beach. 2 chairs and an umbrella provided, but get to the beach early and claim your chairs by leaving a towel. The traffic going into Fort Walton was horrible on Saturday! We sat in bumper to bumper traffic for over an hour. We left at 7 a. m. the next Saturday as we expecting it to be just as bad leaving. Try to arrive on a different day of the week or plan on getting into town early and have lunch while waiting for accessibility to the condo. We ate at McGuire's nearby while in town - delicious food and they have daily specials. Drove into Destin for Mexican food at La Paz one night. Pricey, but yummy! Reserve directly through the property website to avoid an additional charge from VRBO or Homeaway. I wasn't aware of this and got gigged for an additional $136."
