Family Time A guest from Henagar, AL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 enjoyed the balcony, liked the high chairs on the balcony but could have used at least two more. loved the size of the condo. needed to be cleaned better. I would recommend to others if I knew it was cleaner
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to answer our review, we apologize that you had cleaning issues, we will make sure that housekeeping is notified, we hope to see you again.
Family vacation A guest from Calera, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 Overall a fairly good experience. We did experience ants around ice dispenser and found what looked like soda splatter on refrigerator. Small ants also found in master bath(ant spray labeled for master bath found).The unit was nicely furnished but beds looked sloppy with comforters thrown on beds with wrinkles. The weather was wonderful but biting flies were out most every evening preventing extended stay on beach to watch sunset. We love Fort Walton and will return.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to complete our online questionnaire, we will be escalating this information off to our head of housekeeping to try and better understand why this had happened. We thank you for bringing this to our attention, we hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Great Vacation Condo A guest from Shellbyville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 This was our second year to stay at this condo. It was great. Loved the updates that were done to the condo. The only thing that I would recommend for the Islander itself is more carts for people to use. There were only four there and with lots of people checking in and out on the weekends it was hard to get one. We will defiantly be back next year.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!
Never To Return David R. from Union, KY does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 Our week was totally ruined by families being allowed to play country music at loud volumes around the pool EVEN THOUGH THE POOL RULES STATE, "NO RADIOS". The music was so loud we could hear it in our condo on the far corner of the fifth floor. People were eating and drinking beer in bottles IN the pool. There was no management available on site and we were told by the front desk that there was no manager available. The elevators had trash in them and regular checks for pool levels was done during the day despite the burn off of chlorine during very hot days.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review. WOW, we are very sorry that you were not able to enjoy your stay because of other guests who were enjoying their vacation. Unfortunately, the property is handled by a different management company, not Brooks and Shorey Resorts. We only manage the condo itself but have no control over the common areas such as the pool, elevators, hallways are very surprised to hear that there was no manager on duty who would be able to address these concerns. e will definitely reach out to the HOA and let them know about this, maybe they will consider a different company to take care of their property. We still hope to see you on the Okaloosa Island again, maybe at a property that is under the management of Brooks and Shorey Resorts.
We Love the Islander Resort John E. from St. Louis, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 We have rented various condos at the islander 4 times in the last 10 years. We love the layout of unit 5001, furnishings were great. We only have two issues, the thermostat does not seem accurate, condo was much cooler than the 75 degree setting and the carpet is nearing the end of its life. We will be back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your awesome review and most of all, thanks for being a return customer, we truly appreciate your business. IT's so good to know that you have once again enjoyed your stay at the Islander. We look forward to seeing you again.
AWESOME VIEW OF THE OCEAN WITH SUNSETS TO DIE FOR !! angela p. from victorville, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 I had the most amazing time and will definitely be coming back to Fort Walton..! The condo was absolutely perfect and they didn't skip a beat on supplying our every need. From the very beginning, the experience was first class. Going to the office I was tired from the long drive from Atlanta to be greeted by the sweetest staff on this planet. One of the ladies was from my hometown OC. Ca.Everything went smooth from the beginning to end, and I can't say enough about my experience with Brooks and Shorey. I have recommended them to all my clients and friends and plan on using them when I purchase my vacation home real soon !! Thanks to all the wonderful people at Brooks and Shorey !!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for this sweet review! We are delighted that you had a great time at the Islander and you are already planning on coming back. Thanks for all of your nice comments and your recommendations.

vacation 2014 A guest from Shellbyville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 It was a perfect vacation! The condo was perfect for our family. It would have been great if the DVD rental box was on the property. We will definitely be staying here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for talking the time to complete the review and for the five star rating! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again soon!

Great Week Stan and Stacey P. from Killen, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 we have used Brooks and Shorey to stay at the Islander for years, always a great stay. This year was no exception. We had a fantastic week.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review but most of all, thank you for being a return customer! It's always great to see you. We are very happy you had another great stay with us and we hope to see you again very soon!
Family Vacation with adult children Liz M. from Ooltewah, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 We loved everything about this condo. It was roomy, clean, well equipped and the view was spectacular! Only drawback was that the movie rental location was offsite in a sketchy area and the rental machine was difficult to operate.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review! We are happy you had a good time and loved everything about the condo! Sorry about the location of the movie rental machine - unfortunately, the location is given by the vendor who provides the service and it is out of our control. However, we will let them know your thoughts. We hope to see you again soon in Fort Walton Beach, FL!

Great 3 bedroom on the beach! A guest from Auburn, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013 The entire rental experience went very smoothly. The bedrooms (king, queen, double/double), each with a separate bath, were really great for our group.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you found the entire check in/rental experience seamless. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Beautiful Okaloosa Island for your next vacation!
Family Vacation A guest from Olathe, KS recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 It was just what we expected. The staff was helpful when we needed them and the condo was clean with a great view.
Great Week Stan and Stacey P. from Killen, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We have stayed with Brooks and Shorey and the Islander for years, always a good experiance. This year we had a great week in June. Condo was clean and furnished well.
3BR at the Islander A guest from Mt. Carmel, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 We needed a larger condo for this years stay on Ookaloosa Island because we brought extra family members along this year, IBR5001 worked out great for us. I rate it as another great Memorial Day week on the emerald coast.
Islander resort review Renee M. from millstadt, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 Room was great. Only issue was no hot tub when all information made it seem like there was a hot tub.
Islander Condo Rental Julie H. from Marrero, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 This is our third year staying at the Islander and we will be back again next year. The condo is perfect, clean and well decorated. All the necessities of home were available in the kitchen. We couldn't have asked for anything better.
Disapointed in room 5001 Jerry N. from Anniston, AL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 We have been staying at the Islander for the past 10 years and have been satisfied with all the rooms we have been in until this year. Had lights in bedroom that did not work, furniture and carpet was worn and dirty and discovered the first morning that we had ants. We will stay at the Islander again, just not in this room.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! We have forwarded your comments about the worn-out carpet and furniture to the condo owner, we appreciate your input! We look forward to seeing you again at the Islander Beach Resort!
5001 to do list Laura C. from Hazard, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in August, 2012 Needs cleaning better. Move furniture and vacumning Under would be a great place to startIce maker very slow to workNeeds new cooking pans
Forgotten item Tom C. from Edmond, OK recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 Our only concern was that my daughter left her makeup bag hanging on the bathroom door - when the cleaning took place it was reported that nothing was left behind.You'd like to trust everyone, but feel maybe this time someone else ended up with a nice new set of makeup ;(
Needs major overall Ellen F. from Memphis, TN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 We have stayed at The Islander for a number of years, so know that it is hit or miss when booking a new unit. However, this one was really bad. I will say that Housekeeping did what seemed to be as good of a job as they could, but the place is overall rundown and dirty. The sofa and loveseat are supposed to be blue, but are a dingy brown on the edges. The beds in the second bedroom had no bedspreads or comforters. The rugs were filthy. And on and on. Overall, quite disappointing. We will plan to rent from Brooks & Shorey again, but not this unit unless it is renovated.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the review! We appreciate your input and we have passed along your comments concerning the condo condition to the owner of this unit. We have called a professional upholstery and carpet cleaning company to get the sofa, rugs and carpets as clean as they could. Also, the bedspreads have been sent out to be dry-cleaned and sanitized. Please feel free to call us next time you plan your vacation and ask for an updated condo - we all know our properties and will be able to recommend a condo that had been updated. Also, remember to ask about our return customer discount. We look forward to seeing you again in Fort Walton Beach, FL!
Plenty of Room and Hot Water Anthony and Kate J. from Belle Chasse, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in May, 2012 With 3 adults and 6 kids, we found that we had plenty of room for everyone for sleeping, cooking, eating, and relaxing. With many back-to-back showers, we never ran out of hot water, a huge plus for our group. The elevators were a little slow for my taste, but both were in working order. The beach and pool areas were clean and never overcrowded. Ample parking. The BBQ grills were clean and nicely situated.
Beautiful view but dirty condo A guest from Bartlett, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2011 Wonderful view but condo was very dirty and out dated. It was fine since we had kids with us but definitely wouldn't have been happy if this was an adult only vacation. We've stayed here before but in different room and it was magnificent.
Islander at Fort Walton Beach LaFon C. from Eddyville, Kentucky does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011 For the most part our stay was really good although the condo was in need of a good deep cleaning. Our grandchildren did not realize that they were not supposed to feed the birds as we did not see it posted anywhere on the balcony. The janitor jumped all over the kids and almost brought all 3 of them to tears. I think he could of told them in a decent tone. Because of his language to our grand children we will not stay there any more. There are a lot of other places to stay that do not scream at kids.
Summer 2011 stay at Islander Beach Resort Mark G. from Little Rock, AR recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2011 We loved this vacation. Our room had a 3 bed/3 bath/full kitchen room. It was clean, spacious and had a wonderful view of the beach. Only a few minor complaints. The curtain in the master room was missing a few pieces so privacy was an issue. The commode seat in one bath was cracked and pinched when sat upon. The beach was the best part of this vacation. Not only was it spacious, but it was cleaned daily by the sandman! There was more beach front than in Destin, and not crowded. We did not use the pool or hot tub since the ocean was a better choice for us. Our family of 5 voted to come back to Fort Walton next year. We highly recommend the Islander and Fort Walton Beach.
Cleanliness of Islander 5001 Julie H. from Marrero, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2011 We have stayed in two other Islander condos and this was by far the dirtiest. The air conditioner return vent has not been cleaned in a very long time, as well as the carpet in the common area. I was relunctant to step on the rug in the master bath room because it looked like it needed to be cleaned also. The property itself was great and we would definitely stay there again, but not in 5001.
Beautiful condo and beach! Kelly S. from Franklin, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2011 This was my family's first trip to Okaloosa Island, the condo made the trip absolutely wonderful! We hope to stay there again next year!
LeeAnne L. from Deralbine, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in May, 2010 The only problem we really had was during our first night the fire alarm went off and we didn't know what to do. But we finally looked outside and everyone was evacuating so we did the same. It wasn't a bother just out of the ordinary. But overall we had a fabulous time and we will be back to stay at the Islander.
Take your chances A guest from Columbia, MO does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in March, 2010 We rented a 2 BR & 3 BR. The 2 BR had such horrible beds one of us slept on the floor. The 3 BR has a jackhammer above them for nearly 5 hours one day. Mngmt. said they could do nothing; it wasn't their unit. Pd. more than $3,000 for noise and lousy beds. Yikes.
During our stay 1 elevator was out the whole week. Susan C. from Springfield, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2010 We were on the 5th floor with my handicapped 76 yr old father and at one time both elevators were out.My husband and I shared the small bedroom with the queen size bed and the comforter was in poor condition and when we arrived the bed was rumpled.We have stayed with you all many times over the years and love the property but this time everyting seemed not as well cared for as in the past.
Robert H. from Lookout Mtn, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009 The couches were dirty and the carpet was dirty. The manager was very nice and had someone come clean the carpet. They sprayed the carpet with a solution and then went over the carpet with a mop looking attachment. Never used water to suck up the dirt. I would recommend Stanley Steamer come to clean the carpets. Next time we visit I will ask for a condo that has new carpet and furnishings. This is the second time we have visited the Islander and both times we were disappointed with cleanliness of the condo.
Terry R. from Farmerville, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2009 In the front bedroom, the light fixture fell off the ceiling fan onto the bed, and the curtain rod fell off the wall. Also the dryer has to be turned on more than once to dry clothes. Other than these minor problems, our stay was very nice. This was our 5th year to stay. I would recommend this property to anyone!
Albert T. from New Orleans, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 1 days in April, 2009 We have stayed with Brooks and Shorey many times over the years and had a wonderful experience. Our last visit we went to a condo at the Islander and the a/c was broken. The staff was helpful in finding us another condo to stay in but waiting for the key from the maid service was a challenge. In the end everything worked out and we enjoyed our visit.
Nice Condo, Beautiful View A guest from Lafayette, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2008 The condo was very nice, we had a wonderful stay. It had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It was clean, decorated pretty, just as the pictures.
Family summer vacation @ Ft Walton Carnell S. from Paris, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2008 Nice location, good unit with 3 bedrooms, reasonalbe price not highest but not lowest either. Property was no as modern as newer units now available on Okaloosa Island, tired and old looking. enjoyed visit and view from upper ;eve; was nice, beach good, complimentary beach chairs nice. Master bed king mattress old and tired very uncomfortable noisy squeaked and TV,s need to be upgraded to flat screens.
Islander - Fort Walton Beach John H. from Norcross, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2008 Good property on a great beach. Check-in is off site so it's a bit inconvenient. We've stayed here several times and never had any problems. One guest failed to put a swim diaper on their child, resulting in poop in the pool. This caused the pool to be closed for a couple of days. Inconvenient but not the property manager's fault.
Jerry R. from Mt. Juliet, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2008 We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The staff at Brooks & Shorey were very helpful and always courteous. One of my daughters had left an item in our condo and made a call to Brooks & Shorey when we returned to Tennessee. They recovered the item and returned it to us. The condo was very nice, just a few steps from the beach and had everything we needed. We have rented before through Brooks & Shorey, though this was our first stay at the Islander. We have always had a good experience with these folks.
Stay in June Stacey B. from Helena, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in May, 2008 There was some damage in one of the bathrooms from the previous guests. Guest services was very helpful, came and took pictures, etc. It was a great stay. The coupons provided for the dolphin cruise were nice too.
We have stayed in this unit at least three times, maybe four and loved in past, however this trip, the unit was in poor shape. Patricia K. from Louisville, KY does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2008 Specific things that were wrong is master bed mattress is lumpy. The bathroom floors were dirty, being the grout was dirty, especially around the toilets. The dishwasher is about to come out of the wall. The silk plants had lots of dust on them. The carpet looked dirty. In general the unit needs some investment and a deep cleaning.
My beach vacation A guest from Theodore, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2008 Very nicely furnished, relatively clean with a few minor complaints, dishwasher was particularly noisey. Let us check in early!
Our Wedding Cindy P. from Ocean Springs, Mississippi recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2008 From our experience from the time we checked in to the lobby in which we had our reception, we had a wonderful experience. Everyone who joined us for our wedding that stayed at the Islander, had nothing but great things to say about the establishment. I would highly reccomend this place to anyone looking to vacation in the Fort walton Beach, area
Not only was this stay great,we continue to come back to the Islander!It's tradition now!My parents along with my sister and I a Andrea J. from New Site, AL recommends this property.
