Great, clean rental
A guest from Centerton, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2016 We had a wonderful time last week at the Island Princess. We also have 4 kids so being right above the pool was ok, but I can see how it would be an annoyance for some other people. It was clean and nice but could have been better stocked in the kitchen.

A guest from Pineville, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2015 Great condo, this was the 6th time I have stayed in this condo, and will without a doubt try to stay there on any future trip. We were the first or second renters following the most recent remodel and although the condo is still in great shape, the living room furniture is starting to show its age. This again will not preclude me from staying in this condo in the future.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for the wonderful review, we are so glad that you enjoy this condo, so much that you continue to stay there each time you come to visit our beautiful beaches, we will see you again soon.

A guest from Smiths, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 The unit was clean and nicely updated. We had 6 people and had ample room for everyone. The beds were comfortable and having three bathrooms was especially nice. The unit location in the building was convenient to the elevator, which made beach access and parking easy. It was right over the pool and was a little noisy at times but not a problem overall. I would recommend this unit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for completing our online questionnaire, we hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Darlene F. from Cambridge City, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 This was a very nice condo with plenty of room for our family. We didn't cook much, but it seemed to have everything you might need. The view was amazing! My only complaint would be that one of the young men that set up the beach service was extremely rude. Other than that, it was great!

Jacob C. from Dayton, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 We had a wonderful time at this condo. It comfortably fit 6 of us, plus a baby and was mere steps from the beach! We loved our stay at Okaloosa, and at the Island Princess- we will be back!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future!
A guest from Mt. Juliet, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 We spent a long girls weekend in this unit. It was large and provided enough space for 5 singles. We loved having coffee and cocktails on the balcony overlooking the surf. Next time we would choose a unit away from the pool as the kids were swimming and squeezing until 11:00 at night and we weren't able to get in the hot tub for all the kids in it. This is no fault of the management.We arrived at 5 minutes after the office closed and one of the staff reopened the office so we didn't have to return the next day ... thank you for that thoughtful consideration!!! We appreciated it. The unit was beautifully furnished and had adequate kitchenware. Great beach and much more quiet than Destin area. We went to Destin to eat some great seafood and shopping was good there too.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review, we are glad that the unit suited the needs of you and your girls! We are glad you enjoyed your beach get-a-way! We hope to welcome you back again soon!

kelly p. from monroe, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 The condo was true to the pictures, great space. Great price for the location liked the 3rd floor level. The staff at Brooks and Shorey were very friendly. Will stay again.

A guest from Raleigh, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Great Experience!Candice from Brooks and Shorey was very helpful and efficient. We arrived after business hours and it was easy to access our keys from the locked box. Condo was nice and our week long vacation was wonderful.Pros of Unit 309 of Island Princess...Nicely decorated with understated tropical decor. Comfortable furniture...Large bedrooms...Well appointed kitchen. A minor glitch with internet service was quickly resolved. Our 6 ft 6 inch sixteen year old had plenty of room in the queen bedroom and the shower heighth worked for him as well. Kitchen was outfitted with all we needed.We used a service called to pick up and deliver our groceries for us before we arrived.. WONDERFUL service!Cons --1-0 Unit 309 is directly over outside pool. There is a wonderful gulf view but balcony is not a good place to relax until after 11pm when the pool closes. We also kept our drapes closed for privacy.2- Islander Princess has only one way to the beach from the led through the pool and there was a back up going to and from beach---not an issue unless there is a thunderstorm. Kind of a nuisance going through pool area.3--Beach attendants...we had no issues with the attendants. Wes and Luke were very helpful and professional. We did not like that umbrellas were touching each other and that you had to "force" your way through if you were on second row and wanted to get in the water. Second "rowers" also have no view of the gulf.4---Central elevator was very slow and had no fan or ac....not a deal breaker for us. We were extremely satisfied and look forward to booking through Shorey and Brooks again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for taking time to fill out the online review and all your helpful comments! Great to hear you had a wonderful time and enjoyed the condo and are planning on coming back again. Please keep in mind that we do offer a return customer discount so be sure to mention you had stayed with us before next time you make reservations. We look forward to seeing you very soon at the Island Princess!
Robert L. from St. Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 We really enjoyed our stay at Okaloosa island! We have stayed at many different condos in the gulf area( mainly Destin) but will definitely be returning here. Check in process was easy, as was the check out. The little " extras" were very nice- we took advantage of the golfing and the movie rentals( great for the late nights with kids) We arrived around 10, and were able to check in by noon, - loved that! While waiting we were able to access the beach and pool so our first day was thoroughly enjoyed too. This third floor location was perfect for us- beautiful views of the beach, and able to watch the older kids at the pool and hot tub while our little guy napped. Had read some negative reviews of the beach staff, but out experience was fabulous! I talked to the guys the first day we were there and gave them the dates we were staying, our beach chairs were set up in about the same place all week long- I never had to wait in lines to grab a spot. No one wanted to leave, we are already planning another trip! Thanks so much for a wonderful, relaxing vacation!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for your excellent review and all your nice comments! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and the property and are already planning on coming back! Please be sure to mention that you are a return customer and we will issue a return customer discount. We hope to see you very soon on the Okaloosa Island.
Woody D. from McMinnville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 The condo was everything we expected,very nice & clean & well taken care of. There was one little hitch. The handle on one of the sliding glass doors was broken completely off & we reported this when we checked in & we were told to expect a call the next day to fix it & no one ever called.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your great review! We are very happy you had a good time and please accept our apologies about the broken door handle. It has now been taken care of and replaced. We hope to see you again very soon on the Okaloosa Island!
A guest from Mckinney, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 Very nice unit. Had everything we needed. Wish there had been a keypad on the door rather than a key lock. We locked ourselves out once.Fire alarm went off three times one day, but was repaired.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We will relay the information to the owner regarding the key-less entry. Overall we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! We hope to welcome you back again soon!
Jim W. from Mason, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 This is such a wonderful place to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Island Princess 309 is an up to date, clean condo with a wonderful view of the beach. My only complaints would be that there should have been some paper towels in the unit, and there could have been better organization of dish cleaning supplies. Another complaint, which had nothing to do with the condo itself, was the loud neighbors who were smoking cigars and "weed" on their balcony. The breeze blew the smoke right into our balcony, and made things quite unpleasant when they were out there.Overall, this was one of our better vacations, and is now listed on our list of favorite places!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your great review! We are delighted that you had enjoyed your stay with us and that we made it on your list of favorite places! We hope to see you again very soon on the Okaloosa Island!
Esther R. from Muncie, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014 Waking up to the sunrise while waves break gently on the shore is just the beginning of a great stay. We enjoyed ourselves in an updated condo full of special touches. We were able to cook meals in the well stocked kitchen. The unit was clean and comfortable. The king bed was comfortable and I'm picky when it comes to beds. This was our second stay at Island Princess. We like the quiet area, yet it is do close to area attractions. The check in process was smooth and everyone was friendly. :)
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful We agree with you 100% ... There is a lot to be said for starting your day on the beach... it sets the mood for the which is always a good one! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!!!
Charlotte W. from Harrison, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2013 Great location and easy beach access. Nicely furnished unit. Could use a few coffee mugs. Several couples enjoyed a few days of relaxation and golf.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your review of the unit/property. The coffee mug suggestion has been passed along to the appropriate people. We do hope to see you again! Thank you

A guest from LONDON, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013 Brooks and Shorey are wonderful to work with.The condo we rented was GREAT! The beds were wonderful. All the beds were the best ones we have ever had in a condo. This unit was very upscale in all its decoration and furniture. We absolutely loved it! We plan on renting this unit again. The location is wonderful for family and friends. Our overall experience was just relaxing and wonderful!! Can't wait to go back.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thats what vacations are all relaxing, chilling out and soaking up the sun and taking in the breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Island Princess. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back again soon!

Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate your business! The Island Princess is a great property and we hope to see you again soon!
Roger B. from Orlando, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 We were in Ft. Walton Beach on business.Decided to splurge a little bit and get a place on the beach for our stay. It was well worth it, the condo was as nice as the view.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the great review! It's awesome that you had a good time even though this was a working vacation. We are glad you enjoyed the condo and the amazing views and hope to see you again on the Okaloosa Island whether for business or both. Keep in mind that we offer a return customer discount.
William A. from Robinson, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 The check-in/reservation staff were very professional and notified me when the unit was ready early. The IP #309 unit was well designed and an awesome location.
Becki C. from Loudon, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 The rental company staff called as soon as the condo was ready..the condo was clean and easy to access from the parking lot. We enjoyed our stay on Okaloosa Island!
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Loved the view from this condo, all beachfront. Location is great, very close drive to local attractions and Destin activities. Only thing I can think to complain about was the noise from the pool was annoying at times...I would just opt for a room further away from the pool next time, unless you have older children that you might like to keep an eye on from the balcony.
A guest from McKinney, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 Had a great time ! The location right on the water, clean condo . Checking and out was smooth. A little too close to the pool, got a little noisy, but overall great view.
A guest from Sevierville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 The condo was nice, but it could have been cleaner. There was a lot of noise from the pool and guests staying above our condo.
A guest from Prospect, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 Very happy with this unit and location. Everyone had a great vacation (kids age 9-16). Appreciated help from office when we locked keys in the room -noticed many units with keypad access- would have preferred that to the single key we were given (especially with kids).
Jennifer H. from Des Moines, IO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 Comfortable, clean, fantastic view. The only negative, was being spring break, we were situated right above the pool. It was loud, and hours ended at 11.
Debbie S. from Broken Arrow, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in September, 2012 Although we've stayed on Okaloosa Island for many years, this was our first time at the Island Princess. We were very pleased with this condo and it's location. The condo met all our needs, was furnished very nicely, and was a clean, well-kept unit. We would recommend it.
A guest from MARIETTA, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 This was a great, low-key vacation with our daughter, her husband, and our two grandchildren. The proximity to the beach was great and the pool was right outside the unit but down three floors so the kids could swim with minimal supervision. The furnishings were very nice and the unit was pretty clean other than a lot of dust on the louvre doors and ceiling fans. Plenty of towels and paper products. The exercise room was a disappointment but with the beach so close it wasn't missed.
Larry B. from Oconee, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 We were very satisfied with this was everthing we were hoping for! Beautiful view and furnishings...would definately return to Island Princess 309.
Kevin S. from Combs, Arkansas recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 We had a good time & the room was clean and served us well and would consider staying there again and of course a discount would help me really consider it again!
A guest from Hamilton, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2012 My husband and I went with our son and his family, we had a wonderful time the condo was beautiful the pool was clean, everything very relaxing. Be careful with the beach though my husband when he and my son and daughter-n-law were snorkelling came face to face with a bull shark. Very scary and very thankful that the Lord helped them back to the beach safely. Just be careful the beach has a lot of bull sharks. We hope to be able to go again next year. All the children had a blast.
Ewan's S. from Midlothian, Virginia recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012 Our stay was great, but we were a little disapointed that we could never get the internet working. We needed to get a little bit of work done and always had to go to a Starbucks to use the internet. We also had a lot of trouble using the sliding glass doors out to the patio, I think they need some repair. Overall, a great vacation rental though, thanks.
Janet S. from Laurel, Mississippi recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 Took my daughter and her bridesmaids for a bachelorette week-end. The condo was just perfect, especially the great view. Loved having three bathrooms with all the girls!
A guest from Princeton, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 as always we had a great time this was our 20th year staying on the island during the winter months and we plan on being back and working with you
Pam G. from Hanson, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011 This condo was beautiful. Very spacious with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Great view of the beach. Beds were very comfortable. Close to food and supplies. Walking distance to the pier. Fantastic way to start your day. Grounds were very clean and well maintained. Everyone was friendly.
Kathy D. from Athens, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011 This condo had the nicest decor of any I have stayed in and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking. It is right above the pool which could be a little noisy at night if people were at the hot tub. Quiet time begins at 10:00 and the pool closes at 11:00 so it would quieten down by then. My only complaint was that the floor was dirty. I normally wouldn't have known, but I have a baby that was crawling and within minutes his knees and feet were black from the dirt. Overall my experience was very good. It's a beautiful condo with everything you could possibly need. Just get the floors clean and it would be perfect!
Debbie P. from Lexington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 The only bad thing about the trip was the beachthe smell was awful from the Algea and dead fish all over the place so we had to travel to Navarre to enjoy the beach.We won't go back in July for sure.
Carla D. from Mt. Carmel, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2011 The condo was absolutely beautifully decorated! Having great weather the entire week we were there a big plus as well!
Patrick K. from Atlanta, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2011 We had a great stay and the condo was exactly as pictured. The furniture was really beautiful! Great master bedroom! Definitely will be coming back!!!
A guest from Princeton, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in January, 2011 The condo was great and we have rebooked for next year but we would have liked to see the rent stay the same as it has for all our friends
A guest from Denver, Colorado recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2010 My family stayed in unit 309 for a full week and we were all very pleasanltly surprised when arrived. The condo was very clean and nicely furnished. Best of all is the location and the views. Definetlely will visit again.
A guest from Pineville, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2010 IP elevator situation needs correcting. Only one in center, very busy during the busy season. No emergency exit in center of building.
A guest from KATY, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2010 we really enjoyed our stay, the condo was beautifully decorated and very comfortable -only negative thing was that the hot tub was not working much of the time we were there
A guest from New Market, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2009 I have stayed at the IP before and our previous room was in much better condition. The couch was dirty and fabric was coming off. Was unable to wash my infants bottles because a drain was not provided. Enjoyed the pool and two level parking. Great location. I would recommend the condo but not the room.
David D. from Springville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2009 property has convenient location great ocean frt view, only downside , unit needs furniture upgrade. frayed and worn furniture and 10 yr old carpet makes the primetime price seem extreme.
Jimmie T. from Salem, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2009 We have stayed on brooks and shorey resorts for 6 years now and I have to say that was the worst room we have ever stayed in. The furniture had holes in it, the beds was very uncomfortable, my mom found a rag behind the nightstand that looked like it was years old. I believe for $420.00 a night the room should be a lot better. We have stayed at Holiday Inns that was alot better than that. We will be back in July. And we will stay at the Islander. I do pray we never have to stay there again.
Carla D. from Mt. Carmel, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2009 The main issue I had was when we got there there was a leak coming in from the condo above us. One bathroom was extremely wet. Water was dripping from above. We put towels down. I called the emergency line and the manager was unable to get ahold of the people responsible for the above condo. The drip lasted Saturday and Sunday. It was manageable but unpleasant. When you pay $2000+ for a 3 bedroom condo you don't really want water dripping from above. Although it was not Brooks & Shoreys fault (everyone was helpful and sympathetic) I still think I should get some sort of compensation. I have rented a condo from Brooks & Shorey the last 2 years. Thank you for your time.
A guest from Whitney, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2008 There were several light bulbs out in our unit. Also the inside door between the "twin" bedroom and bath did not lock - this presented a problem with children in the "twin" room.
Carrie G. from Clinton, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2008 I have a small child the floors turned her legs and feet brown from all the dirt, there was potato chips under the couch, paint was chipping off the walls,the elevator was extemely slow and out of order most of out stay. we have used Brooks and Shorey about 4 times before this stay and this will be our last time because we need cleaner accomodations
A guest from Jonesboro, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2008 The property was in great condition. We had a wonderful time. I do wish I had known how to check in. For some reason I did not get the instructions and we were late arriving. The number I called answer right away and gave me directions and then called to check on us. Very Nice!
Steve K. from Jacksonville, FL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2008 The property is in great need of renovation. The furniture and carpet are old, worn out and dirty. I did not get a sense that the unit itself was particularly clean overall; which is very important to me, particularly when travelling with my young girls. Management was very understanding and tried to locate an alternative for us; unfortunately nothing suitable was available. I will use and recommend Brooks and Shorey again, but will not request this unit.
James S. from Grandville, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2008 The management personnel were very helpful and friendly. We were originally in another unit and building which was too small because my son is confined to a wheelchair. The management personnel were able to find this unit which was much better and had an additional bedroom. We were not charged extra for moving out of the first unit after 11:00am and we were not charged for the incrimental difference for the upgraded unit.
Mark L. from Bonaire, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2007 I was plesantly surprised that I was afforded vary spacious accomodations for my government business trip. Generally we get quarters tucked away in the worst rooms an establishment has to offer, but at the Island Princess I was extremely satisifed with everything offered.
A guest from Pevely, MO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2007 2 yrs ago when we stayed here it was very clean but a little outdated. Last year when we was filthy and in need of lots of tlc! The kitchen faucet was medical taped together. All floors were dirty and carpet was crunchy. Bathrooms had to be cleaned to be used. Unless alot of work was done, I would not stay in this particular condo again. However, we are staying @ the Island Princess but in another unit with another rental agency. Please contact us when your cleaning staff has changed and the unit has been revamped. Thanks
Worst room in 30 years of visiting Fort Walton Beach
Bambi W. from Metairie, LA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2007 The room was disgusting. There was mold growing in the sink, the couches were torn, there was sand on the floors and in the master bed. The bathrooms were dirty and one had a hole in the wall. I spent several hours of the first day cleaning the place up. I complained loudly and wanted my money back. I asked to be moved and there was some problem with that also. I think the room they wanted us to be moved to would only be available for a few days and we were there for a week. The faucet in the kitchen was DUCT TAPED together. I took pictures but recently deleted them because it had been almost a year since we were there. I figured if you didn't respond before that time there really was no use in complaining. My 9 year old daughter left a WebKinz stuffed animal on the bed. We called immediately and "it was never found" that is complete bull. I am sure a cleaning person or someone else associated with this terrible place took it. I would never return to this property. Just so you know - my family has been coming to Ft. Walton since my parents were married - 57 years ago. I have been coming every summer for my 52 years. I have told everyone I know, probably about 200 people or more, to stay away from this dirty, disgusting property.
