A guest from New Johnsonville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016 Efficiency was ok but not enough light. Needed more lamps in kitchen and especially living room. Balcony chair was not usable S it was torn.

Gary B. from Kokomo, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 always great to go to Fort Walton Beach. The Rental Company and Phone App was very helpful. First time staying in an studio apartment and it was too small. Did not spend much time in it as weather was good but to much furniture and a king size bed made it feel smaller. The bathroom is new but the bed, TV and balcony chair needs replaced.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review and your feedback on Islander 604. This beach front efficiency unit is a cozy little unit. Our general manager did inspect the balcony furniture and the owner will be replacing the chair that had a tear in the seat. We are so glad that our Brooks and Shorey Resorts team was able to take good care of you while you were here and that you enjoyed your beach time so much. We look forward to seeing you again on the beautiful Emerald Coast.

A guest from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2016 Very easy to rent from this company! Professional staff and every detail was spelled out. The condo had amazing views of the Gulf. 6th floor, right on the beach. The condo had a lot of storage, almost too much for the size of the room, but the room was clean and cozy.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much taking the time to answer our review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again.
Islander 604 A perfect little get away and unbeatable view
Rebecca N. from Cosby, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2016 Our vacation was as close to perfect as possible!!! Our check in was very fast and the ladies at the office were awesome, super friendly and very informative ! Everything was just as we expected it to be and more! The ocean view left us in awe ! We feel very blessed to have found this wonderful get away spot .
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. What an AWESOME review, we could not be more thrilled to hear that your experience with us from start to finish was TOP NOTCH and we sure hope that you come see us again soon.
A guest from Antioch, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2016 We loved the location easy travel to and from Destin. The gulf view was BEAUTIFUL!!! The room was spotless and had up to date amenities. Can't wait to come back!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for such a wonderful review, we are so pleased to hear that you had such a great stay with us at the Islander Beach Resort and especially in unit 604, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Jared F. from Mount Juliet, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 The rental is great, very close to the beach, short walk and nicely updated. The only complaint I can think of is that the rental is on the end of the complex which is also where the trash chute is located. Short walk to dump your trash but a pungent smell to greet you when coming back to your room.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for completing our questionnaire, We hope to see you again in the future, possibly in a different condo?
A guest from Morristown, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2015 We enjoyed our stay in this condo, but there were a few things that could be improved. The view was the most amazing view we could have had!! The way the bed was set up was absolutely perfect. As for our dislikes: 1. When we arrived to our condo, we were not pleased to see that the unit was directly across from a trash chute. It was stinky at certain times of the day, but the smell never came in to the condo. 2. The bathroom was a lot smaller in person than it was made to be in the pictures. Also, a bath mat with grippers would be a nice addition considering my husband fell when he got out of the shower. That mat is dangerous! 3. Lastly, the cleanliness in general. Everything was very dusty! There was still sand all over the floor and something sticky on the counters. All in all it was a lovely stay, but for $1,700 I was expecting the condo to be a little more than it was...especially with the cleanliness.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! We are sorry to hear you were not satisfied with the cleanliness of the condo and we only with you had called our office to let us know. We always have housekeeping staff on stand by to address any issues reported. HOwever, we are glad you loved the view and we hope to see you again very soon on the Okaloosa Island.
A guest from Jonesboro, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 My husband & I visited in June 2015. We had such a wonderful visit to Ft. Walton & really enjoyed staying in the Islander 604. It was clean & had a perfect view. It is quite small, but fine for 2-3 people. The beach was beautiful every day & we loved getting beach service included with our stay. We would certainly recommend this unit! We plan to be back & book again with Brooks & Shorey!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for your wonderful review!!! We are very happy your stay was great and that you enjoyed the condo and the beach. Can't wait to see you again on the Okaloosa Island, looking forward to it!
Gary O. from Lockport, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 It was a very nice stay. Room was a little small. Next time we will rent a one bedroom. Clean and equipped well except could have a griddle for cooking.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your great review! We are really happy you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again very soon!
A guest from Baton Rouge, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 Cozy, well maintained, and everything you need. Liked that it had a full size refrigerator for an efficiency. The view was magnificient! Will be back as soon as I can.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Please be sure to call us to make your next reservation... we will be happy to apply a return guest discount!
Eddie K. from Tyronza, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 I was looking for a short get-a-way trip for a few nights as a surprise for my wife's 50th birthday. Although check-in is at 4 we arrived at 1:30 and were allowed to check-in. The employees in the office were very courteous and helpful. The studio condo was very clean. The king size bed was very comfortable and the view from the balcony was awesome! We were pleasantly surprised by all of the amenities that were included in the price of the condo. Cody, the attendant for the beach amenities was very friendly and helpful. Great trip and we will be returning in the fall.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Wonderful News! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, the owner of this particular unit did some upgrades recently and the condo we agree with you is simply beautiful! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you in the fall!
A guest from Pearl, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 My husband and I came down for our 5th Wedding anniversary. The condo was small but just what we needed. Everything was clean as as promised. I would stay here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review, these efficiency units are a great space for couples! Perfect for that romantic beach front break for two! We hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Grace N. from Hebron, KY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 The room was very clean and in good condition and so was the property?s outdoors. The room's view, layout, and amenities were excellent, just as described. The only setback was that the bedspread and the blankets did not have a clean smell. The mattress cover that felt like cheap plastic was not comfortable. The elevator was very old, extremely slow, and quite dirty. The hallways were in unkempt condition. To be fair, some of this could be attributed to some of the uncaring guests. I jogged on the sidewalks for a day and decided against it later. The residents do not care about picking after their dogs despite all the posted remainders. This was truly disappointing and so I later decided to jog along the beach. Otherwise the scenic neighboring city of Destin had a lot to offer from sightseeing to food and entertainment. I am not sure if I would return to this particular property in the future.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to complete this questionnaire, Running along the beach is of course a great way to spend your day... A truly relaxing stay! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the unit and hope to welcome you back again soon!
Susan T. from Ocean SPrings, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 Small cozy room with plenty of view! Perfect for a anniversary trip. The view and sound of the waves was the reason we chose this location and will do so again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the great review, this unit is truly perfect for that great little beach getaway! We hope to welcome you back again very soon!
Jennifer M. from Wooster, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 This condo was great for a couple who just needed a getaway on a budget. The location is fabulous. Close enough to dining without being over crowded. Beautiful views of the beach because it is right on the water. Wonderful to have beach service so we didn't have to haul our chairs. Condo was clean and spacious for two people.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review and all your nice comments! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and had a perfect getaway! Hope to see you again very soon on the Okaloosa Island!
Reviewed by: LaWanda H. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 The balcony is the perfect distance from the beach and is private. It has a wonderful view looking right at the gulf. You can see the sunrise and sunset from there. The bed and fold down couch could stand to be more comfortable. Overall we loved the place and would rent it again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review and your nice comments! This unit truly has an amazing view of the Gulf that everyone just LOVES. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and loved the location! Hope to see you again very soon at the Islander!
Great little condo with a comfy bed and relaxing view
Caleb R. from Bald Knob, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 The condo is comfortable, clean, and cozy. The location is a little more low-key than Panama City Beach, and it's perfect for those who need to relax. It's close to shopping, great food, and just down the road from all Destin has to offer, too. It's affordable, and I recommend it.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Great review, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! As you mentioned there are so many wonderful things close by and convenient. The location is great and the Island is Beautiful... who could ask for more! We look forward to seeing you again in the future!
A guest from Portland, OR does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Location was nice. Great view from our balcony. Nice to have a kitchen, but a hot plate would have been good. King bed was comfortable but very creaky and the fold out couch was not comfortable for an adult. Overall I liked the building, but would have liked a more updated room. Check in was easy.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your online review! We are glad you enjoyed the view from this 6th floor condo and the location. Unfortunately, as the condo description states, there is no hot plate in our efficiency condos. These are set up just like a hotel room so there is really not much space for one. Truthfully no matter how upgraded the sofa sleeper mattresses are, they will never be as comfy as a regular bed because it is a fold-out. Thank you for your comments and we hope to see you again on the Okaloosa Island, maybe in a different (larger) condo that will suit your needs.
A guest from Cave Springs, Arkansas recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 Overall very nice. When we first walked in there was broken glass on the floor which my new wife stepped on and cut her foot. The guests before us had broken the coffe table and apparently all the glass had not been cleaned up. They gave us another place to stay the first night so it could be cleaned up. The second night we went back to our place and all was good. Enjoyed the beach and the food and the scenerry, but the golf course was some what a disappointment but it was free. Plan on going back for our fist anniversary.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and most of all for the housekeeping issue. We are glad we were able to accommodate you in a different condo while the cleanup took place and that you were happy once you got back to the unit you originally reserved. We hope to see you again soon or on your first anniversary! Please don't forget to ask about our return customer discount.
A guest from Pelion, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 I would definitely stay here again! The layout of the condo is perfect and makes good use of the size. I loved being able to look out at the ocean from everywhere in the room. The location on the beach is wonderful and was not too crowded. I would recommend a short drive to Destin for restaurants. My favorite part of the vacation was fishing on Destin Charter Tours. We also rented a kayak right on the beach in front of the condo and went out on the clear water. We could see fish and rays on the ocean floor. The only problem was the temperature of the room. It was hot. I went in April when it was still fairly cool. Luckily I read previous reviews and packed an extra fan. If you go mid-summer you may want to pack an extra 3 or more fans and take an extension cord or 2. Also don't leave the bathroom door open after a steamy shower, it will trip the smoke detector. Other than those small issues, the trip was wonderful! Definitely stay here and enjoy! I will most likely be back.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your lovely review! We appreciate all of the great feed back and will def pass along the information (especially the temp of the unit). We do hope to see you again soon!
Second year staying at The Islander. Very happy A+ condo! :)
Sally O. from Olive Blanch, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 Great location, convenient to surrounding touristspots and great resturants! The Islander has Beautiful grounds their staff is very accomdating as well as the friendly staff at Brooks and Shorey.Already making plans for next years stay at theIslander with Brooks and Shorey as our agent.:)
MaryClaire H. from Atlanta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 We had an amazing vacation. The Islander was a great choice. The property and unit itself were both very clean. We enjoyed being right on the beach and close to main attractions. Our condo itself lacked one or two necessities, but nothing we couldn't pick up during an outing. Would definitely stay here again!! Thank you for a fun, relaxing trip :)
A guest from Arlington, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 Had a great time this May at the Islander. Room was what I was expecting and the view was great.Only complaint was the AC could not be turned down below 75 which for someone that is very hot natured that can be an issue. Other than that it was quite and a enjoyable stay.
A guest from Duquoin, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 We had a wonderful time in Florida staying at the Islander Beach Resort. Brooks and Shorey helped us with the reservations and were very helpful. We would stay here again. Our unit had a very good view of the beach and we were able to see the sunrise and sunset! It was amazing.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed unit 604 at the Islander. The views are truly amazing! We hope you come back again very soon.
WENDALYNN D. from MAURICE, Louisiana recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 We had a wonderful time! It would have been better if the air conditioner actually worked. All they need to do is change the thermastate, because it doesn't work. The air doesn't kick off and on like it should. This is a cheap fix.
Kimble N. from Slidell, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 We always look forward to staying with Brooks and Shorey condos. We love being on the beach and the ladies at Brooks and Shorey are ALWAYS very helpful!!
A guest from Joppa, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 My husband in I stayed in this room on our last trip. It was perfect for what we were looking for. It was right on the beach and the bed was very comfortable. Will stay here again.
Cassie C. from Crawley, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 We had an awesome time staying at IBR! The condo was perfect and the view from the 6th floor could not have been any better! I miss the sound of the waves at home!
Bob B. from Smyrna, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2012 We could not have had a better vacation. While I wouldn't suggest this space for 4 folks, it was PERFECT for two! The room was quaint and inviting and had everything we needed. The triple sliding door opens onto the gulf for a great view and sleeping with the door cracked (to hear the crashing waves) totally spoiled us. Neither of us could sleep when we got home! If you are looking for a small, affordable but PERFECT place for your vacation, DON'T PASS THIS ONE UP! We were there Memorial Day weekend and still were able to get the provided beach chairs every day! One caution...there is a full sized refrigerator but only a microwave for cooking. This was PERFECT for us as we ate breakfast and lunch in the room and ate out every night. Our thanks to the owners....we will be back!
Kevin B. from Birmingham, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 Great studio condo! Nice high-top wood balcony furniture, beautiful view, nice breeze on 6th floor, great TV, nice bed. Overall A+!
A guest from Louisvellie, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012 Condo clean and very nice. Enjoyed the stay immensely, sand white, water crystal clear and weather just perfect. I think the Islander is one of the best condos on the Island.
A guest from Florence, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2012 Very disappointing all around. But you live and learn. I won't be back.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Mr. Reeves, thank you for your online review! We are not quite sure what caused for you to leave such a review for this condo as we never received a call from you during your stay and nothing was mentioned during your check-out. Next time, please feel free to call us anytime during your stay and let us know if there is anything we can do for you or if there is anything that you are not satisfied with. We strive to provide great customer service and we are ready to help you if you just let us know.
Eileen F. from New Orleans, LA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 The coffee maker was broken. The blinds were broken. No wireless internet connection. No paper towels. Kitchen outlet broken, so no working microwave. Lovely ocean view and comfy bed, though. Very early checkout time meant no morning time on the beach. Next time, hotel.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review! Since your review the condo has been upgraded with a secured wireless router, KEURIG coffee maker and the kitchen outlet has been fixed. Please remember that you can always call our office during you stay to report any issues and we will take care of them immediately. We are open 7 days a week. We are glad you liked the location and enjoyed the beautiful beach of Okaloosa Island.
A guest from Newnan, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 The only downside to our stay was this was advertised as one bedroom when it really is a studio condo. I also does not have a full kitchen only a microwave. For us however this worked out great for this stay.
Dawn D. from Lucedale, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011 I had to put my card up for a deposit damage fee of $300 , I wasnt made aware of this over phone when i made my reservation and i looked on web site and didnt see this anywhere, unless i overlooked that was something that should have been discussed before somebody drives three hours, i am coming back this month to stay , because i love this property, have for the last five years!
A guest from Canton, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2011 We loved waking up to the ocean view, having breakfast on the patio and lounging by the pool. We added an extra day to our stay because it was so nice.
A guest from Dothan, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed this particular condo. The decorations were appealing! The only change I would suggest is the ironing board (and I hate to sound so picky)! I iron everything and the board wasn't exactly user friendly, but the iron was GREAT! If I had to choose, I would rather have a good iron, but a sturdy ironing board would have made it perfect! We will be back & request this particular unit! Thanks for sharing!
A guest from JENKS, OKLAHOMA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 Had a great time! Our AC went out the last night but other than thateverything was perfect!! The condo was amazing.
A guest from Morgantown, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2010 Our view was wonderful, but the unit really needs renovated. Coffee pot had to held down on the top to work, black mold throughout the unit, light bulbs burnt out, silverfish throughout unit, and filthy carpet. Feet were black just walking on it. Stained linens.
Jerry C. from Bay St Louis, MS does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2010 The maintance people said it was supposed to been taken care of. But some one did not do there job so we had to look at that mess all weekend. I don't like paying for a room that was in such bad shape.
Chris H. from Guntersville, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2010 I have stayed here numerous times (15-20)---this time was horrible...found mold and mildew in the room---tried to call the brooks and shorey office (they did not return the call)...the next day the air conditioning didnt work...extremely disappointing trip...tried to address issues with property manager and he offered 10% discount on return trip...not planning on that anytime soon
AnnMarie L. from Gulfport, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2010 We had a fabulous time. The property manager, Eva, was excellent. She was very friendly, professional and accommodating for we had to change our plans twice. We have used Brooks Shorey in the past and will continue to use them.
Jason R. from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2009 We had a great time at the Islander. It is so amazing to wake up and the first thing you see is the beautiful emerald water. The rooms are always clean and quiet, and the amenities like the free movie rentals and beach chairs and umbrellas are awesome. This is our 5th year staying at the Islander, and we are already looking forward to next years trip!
Reviewed by: Gabrielle M. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2009 I would recomend this place to anyone. The realtor was vey nice and the condo was in great condition. The view was absolutly wonderful! We hope to come back next summer and stay longer. Thank you so much Brooke's and Shorey for an awsome time!
Carla H. from Brighton, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2009 We loved everything about the condo. It was in a perfect location on the beach and not far from places to eat and thing to do! The beach was clean and so soft. Our view was awesome and we are coming back to stay there for sure next year!!! We got married the night we got there and the rest of the time was our vacation/honeymoon! Thanks for everyhting and we can't wait to come back!!
A guest from Luling, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2009 We were very pleased with our trip to Islander 604. It was so wonderful to wake and see the waves right from our bed. There were only two little tiny things that stopped this from being 100% perfect and that was a broken refrigerator shelf (no big deal) and you could smell the trash chute in our hallway outside our door (although NEVER in our room, only in the hallway). I would just hold my breath until we got past that part of the hallway. And any chance they could speed up that elevator?
John H. from Olivette, MO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2009 My individual condo was clean and up to date but the building, elevators, stairwells and corridors were disgusting and very dirty.
Mallory M. from Tuscumbia, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2009 The room and view were amazing. The facility was very clean. We were on our honeymoon and it was a perfect getaway. It was located in a great spot and right on the beach. The staff was very nice and helpful. We will definetly be returning in the future.
A guest from Breman, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2009 Over all our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. The condo was neat, clean and had comfortable accomodations. All appliances worked well,airconditioning was efficient. There were just a few inconveniences that had little to do with the actual room. The elevator was TERRIBLY SLOW though. We requested non-smoking accomodations and room was but, then other tenants could smoke on the balconies and that ruined our enjoyment on our balcony because we either had to endure their cigarette stench or leave the comfort of our own "non-smoking" accomodations.
Barbara G. from Letart, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2008 Really missed the closet space, where the refrigerator, close hamper, and vacuum were. Not much room to put anything else in there. The air conditioner needs some attention. You have to take the thermostat pretty far back in order for it to kick on, but, then, it gets too cold and You have to get up and turn it up, to get it to kick off. Then, it would usually get too hot because it wasn't wanting to kick on. The Overall stay was great.
A guest from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2008 We loved the Islander and the condo we rented. It was right on the beach and we could sit for hours and look out at the gulf. We would recommend #604 to anyone that just wanted a little studio, it's great for couples. The only thing we hope that the owners might change would be some chairs that were a little more comfortable. Rear got a little sore sitting for long periods of time. But over all we will be back and would love to stay in the same unit.
Luetta G. from Hummelstown, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2008 It was perfect for 2 people - I don't think it would easily accommodate more than that. Just not enough storage room. We really enjoyed the room and the view. We would definitely book it again and recommend it to others.
Bobbie N. from Harrison, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2008 We stayed 3 nites awaiting the arrival of our group of 9 (we then moved to a different complex w/ 4 bedrooms). This unit was just right for us. Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, especially for a holiday weekend.
Saundra K. from Booneville, MS does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2008 We had stayed at the Islander once before and were extremely pleased which is why we chose them again. This time was different. When I made the reservation, I indicated we would be arriving late. I received a confirmation letter stating to pick up our keys at the office with a lock box code. When we arrived we went to the office at the Islander. We were NOT told that the keys would be at the Brooks and Shorey office. When we FINALLY got someone on the 24/7 line. They were rude. We were also not told we would be in building two. So we are wondering around, trying to get in our room at 1:30 AM with 2 kids and luggage. We finally got in about 3AM. When I complained I was met with indifference and made to feel this was all my fault. I should have seen something that was not on the letter and I shouldn't have had to make an emergency call at 2AM. Emergencies by nature cannot be planned. I sent the manager a copy of the letter I received and have yet to get a response. Needless to say. This is our last stay with Brooks and Shorey as management agents. Our room was small and not cleaned well.
Shauna M. from Lawrenceburg, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2007 This was the third year that we have stayed in that particular unit and we love it! The new decor is great! We have never had a bad experience there. The view is amazing, the pool and deck is large and the beaches are clean and not overly crowded. If I had to find something negative it would be the slow elevator. :) We will definitely return.
