Just an OK place to stay! A guest from Anniston, AL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 We've stayed at this property many times but we're a little disappointed this time! Very outdated, paint peeling in several places, very little water pressure (which was reported by the tenants before us and nothing was done), AC did not cool properly and we couldn't get the electric can opener to work, just to name a few! Check in was not until 4:00 pm and check out was @10:00 am and both were "off property" about a 10 minute drive which was not ideal! When we get time away to enjoy the beach we'd like to check in earlier and out later (We've NEVER had a 10:00am check out before)! We usually request a late checkouts and have no problem getting and extra hour or more! We probably won't stay here again. We'd rather rent directly from the owner or property and pick up and return keys there.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for providing feedback with regards to your recent vacation at Islander Beach Resort. We apologize that your recent stay did not meet your expectations. We were aware of the problem with the water pressure as the association who manages the property was dealing with it. Although some time had passed it was not a case of they were not dealing with it, they were waiting for delivery of a part to get the pump fixed. Therefore the delay was unavoidable. This has since been fixed and pressure in the building is now restored. With regards to check in and check out times, these are stated in our paperwork prior to your arrival. We do accommodate early check in's where possible and later check outs although during peak season we do ask for a timely departure time to enable us to get the unit cleaned. We hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future.
Great place to visit A guest from Peoria, AZ recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 Had an amazing time! Loved the accommodations! The bed was comfortable, the place was clean and very comfortable. Great place to stay!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the positive review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay in unit 706. Please be sure to call us if you wish to make future reservation. We will be happy to apply a return guest discount!
OKALOOSA ISLAND VACATION A guest from Tallahassee, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2014 We have stayed at the Islander in the past and wanted to return. We were worried about our privacy whilst staying in the side view unit although found the view to be alot better than we expected. The land next to the Islander is empty so you are not looking onto any other buildings. The check in process was very simple and our unit was ready when we arrived.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward o seeing you again in the future.
Family Get Away Joyce M. from Yukon, OK recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2014 Very good- only difficulty we had was finding your office, as I never received the final instructions for checking in.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review! Sorry to hear you had a difficult time finding out office but we are glad you did find it! Not sure what system shows that we sent you the confirmation letter along with directions the day you made the reservation to the address you provided. It was the same address where you received this survey. Please, keep in mind that you can always call us to request a confirmation letter or ask for directions, our office is open daily. Again, we are glad everything worked out at the end and we hope to see you on the Okaloosa Island in the near future!
Great location, roomy, comfortable A guest from Owens Cross Roads, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2014 Beach vacation. Two comments: elevator was extremely slow and one of the two air conditioning units was weak.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your online review! We are delighted that you enjoyed the location and the condo! Yes, we have heard the comment about the slow elevator before but unfortunately since we do not handle the building, only the condos, there is nothing we can do about that. We will definitely check on the AC unit! Thank you for letting us know. We hope to see you again soon!
As expected Tim H. from Alabaster, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 This unit was exactly what was described. I got what I expected. I felt the price was higher than the value, but it was comparable to other units on Santa Rosa Island. The kitchen is tiny if that is a concern.Advice to owners; too many trinkets and decorations for a rental condo. Just more things to get damaged and in the way
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your online review. We are glad you had a good time and that the condo was as expected. We will pass your advice on to the owner and we hope to see you again soon in the Okaloosa Island!
June trip A guest from Owensboro, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 We enjoyed our stay. The thermostats in the unit do not seem to be working properly. Other than that, the unit was great.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for bringing the thermostat issue to our attention. We will be sure to look into this. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the Islander unit 706 and thank you for choosing Brooks and Shorey Resorts for your Florida Vacation
Hospitality! Jason D. from West Grove, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 I needed creamer for my coffee and the lady at the front desk gave me milk out of their own fridge. That was very kind of her, and very much appreciated. The views were excellent from our balcony. The weather was 50/50, but fun to watch from the balcony with approaching storms over the Gulf. I'd recommend to anyone!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your very kind review! We are glad you got the experience the southern hospitality experience we try to provide to all of our guests. We are also very happy that you enjoyed your stay and the views from your balcony and we hope to see you again in Fort Walton Beach, FL!
We Had a Super Winter @ IBR 706 Carol B. from Custer, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 28 days in February, 2014 We just love the IBR unit 706 for its spaciousness, comfort, and side gulf view. From this unit, not only do you see the beautiful Emerald coastline all the way down to the high rises of Pensacola Beach in the distance, but we also really enjoyed the view of the sound between Okaloosa Island and the mainland. There is always activity to view of the island and of Fort Walton Beach city across the sound. We own ocean front on the Pacific in Oregon, have stayed in a gulf front IBR unit in the past, but with this unit, there is much more to see than only the gulf. Love it, love it!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank y oiu for yoiur kind words. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at unit 706 at the Islander Beach Resort! We hope to see y ou again soon!!
A Second Spot We Call Home Larry & Carol B. from Custer, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 28 days in February, 2013 We have been "winter Snowbirds" at the Islander #706 and have been very comfortable. The unit is decorated with care and the kitchen is well equipped, prepared a large Christmas dinner and other dinners with guests. In past comments there was something about the dryer. We have been here three months and I cannot find anything wrong with the dryer. In playing around with the settings, I think perhaps they were not starting it with an appropriate setting to engage the timer. Therefore, NOTHING WRONG WITH THE DRYER! We only have positive thoughts about our stay this winter and will return to #706 all next winter.
The Islander A guest from Mobile, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 Everything was great except the dryer in the condo didn't work and when I called about it maintenance came to check it but they said it was a fire hazard so I felt like they should have moved us or given a discount for the inconvenience.
Islander Beach Resort Ft. Walton, Florida Brenda S. from Decatur, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 July 8th through 13, 2012. The condo was beautifully decorated with a beach theme. There was adequate space for all of us who stayed there. Fully equipped condo with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The condo is located on the beach so did not have to walk far to get there. Close to restaurants and shopping. A couple of the appliances did not work well i.e. clothes dryer, one of the bathroom sinks and shower. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable stay. Would recommend this condo location for travelers.
Repeat visit Jamie C. from Saint Marys, WV recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 We left a three bedroom unit only to have our flight being rescheduled. When I called the Brooks and Shorey office with an SOS they were very gracious and helpful to get us in to this unit on short notice. The staff were amazing and althought the unit wasn't nearly as nice as the one that we had left earlier in the day it was truely a safe haven from tropical storm Debby. Thank you to the wonderful staff for helping us during a difficult situation.
Satisfied Reviewed by: Richard W. recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in March, 2012 Overall I was vey satisfied with the property. However, I experienced two minor problems. First, there was no way connect the DVD to the TV, thus I was not able to view DVDs. Second, the remote control to operate the TV in one bedroom did not work. These minor problems would not prevent me from renting the property again.

Almost perfect Charles B. from Broken Arrow, OK recommends this property.
Stayed for 9 days in July, 2010 This place had two sliding glass doors that allowed access to a big balcony. The doors/balcony were on the West end of the building and the heat of the sun in the afternoon was such that we would attempt to close the shades. The shades were very old vertical blinds that constantly fell apart everytime you opened/closed them. If they'd replace those - this would get 5 stars across the board.
Greeat SunSets Paul P. from Olympia, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in December, 2009 We get a Great view of the Sunsets from are Room. Everything has been great so far and everybody friendly and helpful. We run into the owners of this unit and they are very nice people, and if we ever make it this far east again we will for sure be looking into getting this room again.
An okay stay Joyce T. from Hampton, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2009 Overall the property was okay. My complaints are with the elevator was was extremely slow and very hot. Had it not been for the fact that the room was on the seventh floor I would have been able to carry my bags up faster than the elevator. My condo also had a couple of minor problems. The patio door blinds kept falling off and the microwave was too high for a short person to reach. Other than that the stay was okay.
A guest from Tallahassee, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2008 I was very disappointed with the furniture and the vertical binds fell everytime you opened or closed them. Several would fall off each time. The elevator is extremely slow and makes noises that you are not sure if it is safe. I took my mother who is 84 and her sister my aunt because they wanted to see the beach so much. They enjoyed being able to see the beach but were unable to stay on the balcony very much. One chair was all that was there and the ones inside were not able to be moved outside due to their size and being so heavy. They were not the type of chair for a balcony. I own a timeshare and and I am use to staying in condos but was surprised with this one.
Loved the stay at fort walton Suzanne M. from Kirbyville, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2008 Everything was wonderful. New sheets on the bed were a little rough on our sunburns, but overall everything was perfect. We can't wait to come back again, will recommend to everyone.
Frequent Guest Mark G. from Robins AFB, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in March, 2008 This stay was room 706, which I call the old building. This room is sufficient but the heating/cooling system is not very efficient I believe it to be more centrally controlled. I believe a previous guest had smoked in the room as well. I do prefer the properties newer building, the room layouts, controls and kitchen. The location is what I'd call a little more out off the way which I like. Property is usually very clean. I do prefer property management to be onsite. Their smiling faces are always welcome.
