Mary L. from Athens, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2016 The condo was nice and the view was okay for a side view.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. These side view two bed/two bath condos at the Islander are a great way to stay budget friendly on vacation AND still see the Gulf of Mexico from your balcony! Pointing out to the west, you truly get to see the most AMAZING sunsets on the Emerald Coast when staying in unit 306. Thank you for your FIVE STAR review on our online questionnaire, we appreciate your business with Brooks and Shorey Resorts. Please take advantage or our repeat guest discount and come see us again soon on Okaloosa Island.
A guest from Choctaw, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 The thing that impressed us the most was that it was very clean but also comfortable and had a very nice view. It was perfect for two because we each had a side with bedroom and bath. Sister in law and I both would most definitely recommend.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We certainly appreciate your positive mention and we are overjoyed to hear you had such a positive experience staying in the Islander 306, we hope that you will one day return for more sand and sun at the Islander 306!

A guest from Girard, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2015 Stayed here in July 2015 and December 2015. Enjoyed both stays. Rentals are clean and views are beautiful.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to answer our review, we always love to hear from our return guests, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us both in July and December, we will see you next time.
Philip B. from Canton, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2015 I highly recommend renting through Brooks and Shorey. The condo couldn't have been more comfortable or the view more beautiful. We were on the side of the building, so we were treated to beautiful sunsets. The company was very accommodating when we requested an extra day as we arrived earlier than expected. We enjoyed some of the included daily free activities that came with the condo. We especially appreciated that the condo had a combo lock instead of a key and the pool and beach were so close. Overall our stay couldn't have been better from start to finish.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the recommendation, we are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation in Fort Walton Beach and hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Mickie S. from Lagrange, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 Very good stay. everything was clean and enjoyable. The only problem was the kitchen area was very small.( However we were not in the kitchen a lot). I would stay again. Great vacation.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for your online review! We are happy that you had a great stay with us and enjoyed your vacation! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
A guest from Lake in the Hills, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 This condo was beautiful. Perfect location, and very neat and clean. We enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to coming back. The beach chair and umbrella were very handy. We did not have to lug it back and forth. Loved it.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your great review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay at the Islander and liked the condo. Hope to see you again on the Okaloosa Island soon!
Stacey K. from Kettering, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 Couldn't put the AC over 75 or else the unit would freeze. Hard to believe that because it is FL. Maybe a way to save on utility bill? Had to close the blinds from 2pm on or else the unit would get up to almost 95 degrees. Then we lost our beautiful view : ( Overall, we were very pleased with the unit. The AC was the only complaint.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your online review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, sorry about the AC issue we will try to find out what's going on with the 75 setting. Hope to see you again on the Okaloosa Island!
Brett P. from Cedartown, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Awesome Condo with great view of the beach!! Love having the Coded Door instead of key. We will be back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the nice review, Be sure to call us to make your next reservation, we will be happy to apply a return guest discount!
Laura W. from Harrodsburg, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 No complaints! Brooks and Shorey were responsive to any needs, the front desk at the condo was helpful and friendly, the gym was small but adequate TV, fan, water cooler ). The beaches were gorgeous. The condo is a little dated but beds were very comfortable, kitchen was well stocked and it presents as pictured. The pool is large and heated. Beach service was also very nice. Again, absolutely no complaints!

Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your great review! So glad to hear you and your family had a good time at the Islander on the Okaloosa Island! We hope to see you very soon!
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 We had a pleasant stay at our resort! It was minutes away from everything to do the beach, the way a vacation should be. Definitely would stay at this resort again!

We are glad The Islander Beach Resorts was a good fit for your vacation. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!
A guest from Cypress, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 The location is good, but things you should know that may or may not be important to you: 1) They do not allow you to set the AC below 75F, so the condo stayed HOT 24/7. It was cooler outside in the shade than in the condo.2) There are no rugs in front of the door or the balcony door, so with being on the beach, you will be constantly tracking in sand and dirt since there is nothing to wipe your feet on. You must wear flip flops in the condo at all times if you don't want sand on your feet.3) There are two fans in the condo, yes, but I called them "prop" fans b/c they don't actually blow air.4) They "provide" a box of 20 year old dish washing detergent so it's two golf ball clumps in the bottom of the box that you can't actually use. And they do not provide dish soap.It is much nicer to rent from a private owner who usually provides beach towels and supplies, laundry and dish soaps, and basically anything you need in a home. I recommend you find a different condo first, owned by an individual owner and not a company. But, if this is the only one left then this will do. Just be prepared to be extremely hot and have to bring ALOT of essentials from your home to this condo.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! We only wish that you would have taken the time to contact is during your stay to report these issues you have mentioned. As for the AC in the condo - you can have the settings as you wish, no problem there but if you keep your balcony doors open, to enjoy the view, the condo will never cool off. We do provide a box of dish soap and if yours got "clumpy" because of the humidity, we apologize. Our offices are open daily and all it takes is a quick call to let us know you would like a new box of detergent. Yes, this particular property has a rule given the the homeowners association (not our company) that will not allow for any rugs to be placed in front of the entry doors or on the balcony by the condo owner. We completely agree - this rule is ridiculous but unfortunately, it is out of our control and we have to abide by the association policies. Sorry you were not satisfied with the rental and we would definitely suggest staying at a different property next time you are in Fort Walton Beach!
David J. from gillespie, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 good location clean room,Would stay again
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review! We are very happy you liked the room and the location. We hope to see you again on the Okaloosa Island!
Jesse P. from Richland, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 This property is exactly as described and the pictures accurately represent the condition and cleanliness of the property. The amount of space was way more than my family and I expected. Working with Brooks and Shorey made this an easy transaction. I am in the process of booking with them again. Thank you for the excellent rental and service.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review and your nice comments! We are delighted that you have made another reservation with us and we are looking forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks for being a return customer.
Linda W. from Henning, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2014 We were very satisfied with our stay in IBR 306. We had a small maintenance issue which was corrected immediately. The property was in good shape. All appliances worked great, including the dishwasher, and the washer and dryer. Great TV's also. The property condition was good. I think the carpets in the bedrooms need some upgrading. There was a water stain on the bedroom ceiling that should be corrected. Bathrooms are alittle small. Overall we liked the unit a lot. We got to watch the most beautiful sunsets from the balcony. A lot of big windows, so had great view of the gulf. The boardwalk to the ocean is right outside the building. Overall, very satisfied with the unit, and Brooks and Shorey staff were excellent to work with. Checking in was a breeze. When we checked out, it was very early in the morning, we just had to drop our keys into their box by their office, and we were on our way. We would recommend this property.Thanks for a wonderful stay on Okaloosa Island. We hope to be back in the area next year.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! We are delighted that you had enjoyed your stay and are planning on coming back next year! Winters in Fort Walton Beach are so much better then up North - it's a great retreat if you are trying to escape the cold and snow. As for the carpets in the bedrooms, we will forward your comment to the condo owner, thank you! We will definitely check out that water stain! Thank you again for staying with us and for the wonderful review!
Dana S. from Alamo, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013 We really liked the layout of our condo and we had all of the amenitites we needed.We also liked where the condo was located. It did not have a condo directly next to it (on the right side) and it gave us more free space on the beach. We would stay again at the Islander.
A guest from Elk river, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013 This is the third time we have stayed at this resort and we have always enjoyed it. This year the hot tub had been removed and that was disappointing. We were really looking forward to using it. We got locked in our room for a short while due to the patio doors being open slightly and the weatherstripping created as seal that didn't allow either of the doors to open. Thankfully maintenance works on Sunday and rescued us.
Janine N. from DeSoto, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2012 We loved it there, the location was great. Spent most of the time at the beach, and to have two bathrooms made it so much better. We have never rented a condo before but this is the only way to go. There was so much space, none of that crowded feeling you get in a hotel room especially with 3 kids. Really GREAT. I will hopefully be coming back for another stay.
Norman R. from murfreesboro, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 Nice unit, but needs upgrades. Ice maker never worked, cable went out on second day. Minor upgrades, but needed.
Sandy M. from Morero, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 This was my first experience with Brooks and Shorey Resorts. They were extremely helpful, courteous and professional. I intend to use their services for all of my future vacation rentals.
A guest from Wetumpka, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 This is the 3rd time we've vacationed at the Islander and we can't wait to go back. Its a great family atmosphere, quiet lication and good value. We especially love that the umbrella and chairs are included with the room.
James B. from North Vernon, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 We had a great time at the condo in Fl. We could walk out the door right too the beach, we had a wonderful view. The condo was clean and we had plenty of room. Brooks and Shorey was the only company that allowed us to stay for 3 days when all the rest would not accept reservations for less than a week. Thanks again!
A guest from Southside, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 We were very happy with our stay in room IBR 306. The Islander was nice, quiet, and the beach was great. The kitchen in this unit is very small-so it was a little difficult to have more than one person cooking. The bedrooms were spacious and the livingroom/dining area was huge. I was also very happy about the view! Even tho this is not considered a "beach view", it had a great view of the beach and we could see the sunset over the ocean. The price wasn't bad either. We had 6 people in our room and it was very comfortable and enjoyable. We will come back!
MEGAN D. from Metairie, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 I was happy with the overall stay. I was unhappy that I was charged for not returning a movie card. Brooks and Shorey should have mentioned to me that it needed to be returned with the keys.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Hello, thank you for your comment. However, there are no charges for a lost movie card, we have not charged you and and we will not charge you for it. At the time of check-in we ask everyone to return the cards with the keys and this request is also included in the check-in paperwork you have signed. However, if you misplace the card there are no charges. Thanks!
Karen B. from Knoxville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011 The property was exactly like the pictures. Very clean and quite. The beach was incredible. We will be coming back nex year.
Mark B. from Fenton, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in May, 2009 While it is certainly true that not everything was perfect, the staff did a more than adequate job of correcting issues as they came up. Thank you for a great stay and we hope to see you again. Very Respectfully, Mark, Angie, Joshua, Ruth and Joseph
A guest from Cincinnati, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2009 elevator broke the entire stay. bathtub drain clogged, it was very unpleasant. the air conditioner would switch to heat automatically in middle of night, sounding like a freight train in the condo.
Dayl T. from Lancaster, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2008 This is a great place to stay! It met all my needs with laundry, free wi-fi, a kitchen, etc. Great view and very easy access to the beach.
Delores T. from Owensboro, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2008 Overall our trip was very good. As far as the unit we stayed in, the AC unit sounds like a freight train - very loud! When we arrive and sat down in the living room, you could see crumbs and food under the couch! And the elevator in that building is terrible -- every time you hit floor 3 it takes you to 4 and then you have to hit 3 and come back down to that. We will be there in the Spring -- hope some of these issues can be taken care of. Thanks!
Martha A. from Cabot, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2008 We had rented 704 at first, but when we arrived...the place was a dump! MOLD in the carpet, sagging sealing, sliding glass door rusted, bedsheets nasty, cigarette burns in the floor, M&Ms under the couch...after an hour or so, we were finally moved to 306 - and excellent room! One thing is true though - do not go cheap! For $150 a night, you can get a dump, but if you spend $100-125 more, you get an amazing vacation.
Diane C. from Loganville, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2008 By fare our worst rental in years of coming to Okloosa. I wiped up coffee staian beside the sofa,washed dishes form the cabinet before I could use them from dried on food,Thank God we were only on the third floor because the elevator was out the entire time , I usually have my elderly parents on vacations with me and all I could think of was what would I have done. Ridiculous only 1 evevator in this building. AND To only have 1 TV not either bedroom has a TV, Come on. This was not pleasant with teenagers.NOT PLEASED AT ALL.
Brad M. from Montgomery, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2007 I typically stay in my timeshare in Panama City Beach or go to Orlando or Myrtle Beach. We decided to try this different location and was pleasantly surprised.
