Could been equipped better, but overall it was good.
Tammy S. from Pineville, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 The condo was clean and very nice. The only problem was it wasnt equipped with enough cooking utensils. Good thing I prepared myself and brought my own. Had a friend in another condo and had to use potato peeler because the one that was in the condo (sucked). The draws were bare. Other then that. It was a nice condo.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are glad that you had such a great time visiting the Islander 5006, it is definitely a popular vacation rental! Sorry to hear the utensils were not as stocked as they should have been, we will send housekeeping over to take inventory and to see what needs replaced. Keep us in mind for your next beach front escape!
A guest from Mount Juliet, Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2016 Nice condo that is mostly up to date which is a plus. Location was great & view was awesome. Condo was clean upon arrival & no major issues throughout our stay. Only minor items were that not all dishes in kitchen for use were super clean & the fridge had constant condensation on the inside. Overall we were happy & would consider this unit again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review; we appreciate the feedback! We have notified maintenance about the refrigerator and advised housekeeping of the dishes, our staff is very quick to respond so please always feel free to call us immediately with any issues or concerns while staying with us and we will immediately come out to resolve the issue. We are very thankful that we were able to provide you with a superb vacation experience. The Brooks and Shorey Resorts team looks forward to seeing you again in the near future!
Sierra H. from Poplar Bluff, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 Great condo with everything you will need. We brought out 10 month old and it was so nice being that close to the beach. The pool was also great too. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean and in excellent condition. There is plenty to do and eat right there. My husband also enjoyed a few rounds of golf that came with the rental. Overall we would recommend.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are glad your hubbie got to partake in the daily free round of golf included in our amenities package and that you found your accommodations to be above par! Thank you for your recommendation, and we hope to see you in the future on another fun filled Gulf Coast getaway!
A guest from Madison, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 We enjoyed everything about our stay. Condo was exactly like pictured online. Location is just right, close to Destin, but beaches are not crowded. We'll definitely come back.

Les F. from Owasso, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2016 Really enjoyed this condo. It was nice to be away from the congestion of Destin. Unit was very clean and nice. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching for Dolphins.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your great five star review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us and was able to watch the dolphins and enjoy the view of the beach from the balcony.

Cherie W. from Evansville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in October, 2015 Other than a few minor items which Scott was super responsive on it was a great stay. Even the weather conditions the last week couldn't really put a damper on our vacation although it did rule out our plans to go parasailing. We'd have no problem booking this property again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for the feedback, we are so glad to hear that any issues you had were dealt with immediately, we hope to see you again soon.

BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF OCEAN. BEDS AND TELEVISIONS VERY NICE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND. IF I RETURN I WILL REQUEST THE SAME UNIT. RECOMMENT MCGUIRES PUB AND THE BACK PORCH DINING.

Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for submitting this online review! We are happy to hear that you had a a great time and we sure hope to see you back in unit 5006 soon!
Heather R. from Nowata, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 The condo was very clean and in a great location. We watched Dolphins play right out front of the condo. The beaches was so clean and the white sand was beautiful. This was our first time in Florida and my family had a blast. It was close to everything you need food, entertainment, restaurants and souvenir stores. We will definitely be returning.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for this delightful review! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future! Thank you for choosing Brooks and Shorey Resorts!
A guest from Symsonia, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2015 We had a girls'vacation and a very good time. The weather didn't cooperate, but did not deter our fun. Condo was very comfortable and great location. Would definitely recommend to others. Thank you for all your help.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are glad that you managed to still have some fun on your girly vacation! We did have a few April showers, but today we are back to our usual Sunny Florida! Thank you for choosing Brooks and Shorey Resorts!
Rachelle B. from Powder Springs, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 I loved it I will most definitely return ! I would love to come back in the summer the only complaint is to open up 3 day stays instead of a full week
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. The 3 night stays are available in most of our units (just not 3 bedroom units or select 2 bedroom units) However this unit that you stayed in on this particular visit is available for 3 night minimum (subject to availability) Please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to check availability for you.
Bobbi C. from Alto Pass, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 This condo was amazing!! Me and my family stayed here for our wedding on the beach. The beds were super comfortable. Nice layout, clean and an amazing view of the pool, beach and ocean. The condo had a lot of amenities that previous condos I have stayed at didn't have (bath towels, wash clothes, dish soap, laundry soap ect.) Had a wonderful time and will definitely will stay here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the great review! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future!

A guest from Memphis, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 The staff were so helpful and nice. We will use Brooks and Shorey again. The unit we stayed in was so clean and updated, Everything you needed was available for our use. We had oceanfront and it was so nice to hear the waves and watch the dolphins playing from the large balcony. We enjoyed our stay and will come back to the Islander again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the great review and the wonderful comment about our staff! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon, remember to call and make your next reservation, we will be happy to apply a return guest discount!
A guest from Daton, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 With children back in school, we were able to schedule the 3rd week of August at the non prime rate, saving about 175 per couple for a two BR ocean view at islander resort. Clean an updated condo. No issues. Had a great time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the great review, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay at unit 5006, it sure is a beautiful unit with a great view!

A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 Very spacious and clean condo for our family vacation. Had all the amenities needed and was decorated nicely. The beach was beautiful and we enjoyed it and the pool as well. The owner and property management team was very accommodating and easy to work with. This rental will go in our file for future use.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review and your nice comments. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to see you again very soon!
Gina M. from Canton, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2014 We had a wonderful time. The condo was very comfortable. Everything we needed was available. We had a wonderful experience.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your excellent review! We are very happy you had a wonderful experience and hope to see you again in Fort Walton Beach, FL!
A guest from Jefferson City, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Everything was in good working condition. Great location to beach and elevators were right outside the condo. Perfect for lugging toys, beach bags and kids to the beach.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your online review! We are thrilled you had a great time and hope to see you again very soon!
Reviewed by: Connie P. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 My husband and I took our two granddaughters to Okaloosa Island for a week. The management company was very professional and easy to deal with. The condo was spacious and well decorated, with everything in working order. We would use Brooks and Shorey for future bookings.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for your great review and for your nice comments! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to see you again in the future! Make sure you ask about our return customer discount next time you book with us!
Charles D. from St Clair Shores, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014 The B&S parking pass was not acceptable. The Islander put a note on my car stating I had to get a parking pass from them.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. This is correct, The Brooks and Shorey parking pass will get you through until the front desk at the Islander Beach Resorts opens, at which time you should go to their front desk to provide your vehicle details and obtain one of their passes. Ours will get you through until their office opens. We apologize if this wasn't made clear to you at check in. We do hope to have you visit us again in the near future!
Marcia P. from Bonham, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2014 This condo was in great condition, excellent location on the gulf, and well equipped. We would be delighted to stay there again! Wonderful & large balcony overlooking the pool & shoreline is so peaceful. Beds were quite comfortable too. Extras like some games & books provided also. All in all you'd be delighted with this unit!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to respond to our review, we are delighted that you had such a wonderful experience and look forward to seeing you again soon.
A guest from Ashville, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2014 Our only problem with the property was getting into the room. It was very cold and windy and the physical key would not work. My husband and I both tried unsuccessfully to get the lock to unlock. We had to call the real estate office and they were going to send someone over, when we saw and asked a maintenance worker to try. He was able to get it to open. This property has a keyless entry lock which worked like a dream, once we were in the unit and got the code. Why that code can't be given out upon check-in, was a mystery. There must be a good reason, but it would have started our visit off much better if we had had the code and not the key. Just a minor glitch. The unit and stay we're great.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to write this review, We are glad to hear that our maintenance guy managed to get you in your unit swiftly enabling you to get on with enjoying your vacation. We hope to welcome you back again soon!
Carlotta J. from Middletown, Maryland does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2013 Our family greatly enjoyed the Islander Beach Resort location and the few additional amenities available in the winter, especially the heated pool and the spacious, attractive lobby area that we used for a party. We would definitely recommend IBR but not this particular unit. Overall, it was well furnished and attractive, but we were unhappy with a few features that are important to us. First, the lighting was poor for anyone who wanted to read while sitting on the couch or on a bed. Second, the beds were reminiscent of a cheap motel: squeaky bedframes and sheets that were thin and pilled. Third, the glass top on the dining room table was not attached to the base. When someone leaned on an edge, the whole top raised up. Disconcerting and dangerous! We also had mixed feelings about the three TV/cable/DVD setups. It was good to have those options, but the first two DVD players we tried didn?t work. Management sent someone promptly to trouble shoot, but he had to call the owner who came over and fixed them. But then we had trouble again with the one in the living room and all of us had to pile into the master bedroom to watch a movie on our last night. We didn?t want to call the owner again on New Year?s Eve, though he had been very cooperative previously. So, unless we find out that some improvements have been made, we would look for a different unit next time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We greatly appreciate your taking the time to review the condo! Your comments will help us to provide a better experience for future guests. Since the owners added the premium cable box (full line of HD channels) the electronics/remote can be a bit daunting. While everything works, accessing items like the blu-ray players or the XBox might be a challenge for the uninitiated. We will seek to simplify the instructions for future users.The pillow-top mattresses and box springs on the two king beds are relatively new. A squeaky bed frame is certainly annoying. We will find the squeaks and eliminate them. We will also let housekeeping know they have some sheets that need to be replaced (such linens normally never make it past inspection) .We are not sure what can be done about the dining room table as that is how it came from the store. Thanks again for your comments!
A guest from Dacula, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013 Wonderful place, right on the beach on Okaloosa Island. Close to shopping and dining, with about a 15 minute ride to much busier Destin. Pictures were accurate. Very clean, fresh paint and tastefully decorated. Comfortable for four adults, the sofa sleeper would probably be best if a fifth or sixth were children. The electronic access was convenient, after using a key to get in the first time. Everything that was supposed to be there was. View of the ocean was beautiful. The surf was low and smooth most days. Pleasant temperature for late October, both air and water. Beach was not crowded at all. Having the two chairs and umbrella included was a big bonus. Dolphins swam by daily at varying times. They occasionally would play and jump out of the water. Fighter jets of some type and C-130 cargo planes flew by sporadically due to close proximity to Eglin Air Force Base and Naval Air Station Pensacola, but offered more of a "Wow, neat!" factor than "Ugh, not again, they're so loud!" Definitely would stay here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and all that this unit had to offer!! You really cant beat the view of the ocean from The Islander Beach Resort... a little taste of paradise. We hope you would consider staying with Brooks and Shorey again! We really appreciate you taking the time to write this review!
Bryan S. from Saint Petersburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 Stayed here for a business trip in season. Owner was very accommodating and was able to fit us in on very short notice. Condo was exactly as the pictures show. Thanks for making my business trip something I looked forward to!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. You are very welcome! We hope to see you again or Pleasure! We also offer a returners discount for your next stay!
Alan H. from Mount Juliet, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 The condo was well stocked (better than most -- even dishwasher/laundry supplies and pool/beach supplies). The condo was spotless. Also, it had TVs AND DVD players in each room. We have vacationed in Destin every year for nearly a decade. This was one of my favorite condos!
Steven S. from Sherwood, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 My family and I had a great stay recently in Florida. This condo is exactly what you see in the pictures and more. The only issue that came up while we were there was the elevators. Sometimes they worked and sometime they didnt. We were told by a worker that a lightening storm in the area kept flipping the breaker but it kept happening even on pretty days. This in no way took away from the experience we had and we hope to stay in this condo on future trips. The owner was great and is there close if you have any problems.
Griselda B. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 Everything was ready when we arrived and we even received a welcome bag with some goodies. The location is perfect, no crowded beaches, and you can always find a chair and umbrella to relax at. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing and calm vacation!
Hollis M. from Lake Forest, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 Our rental unit was great. It was clean, nicely decorated and had everything we needed to prepare meals every day. The location was perfect. It was raining the day we arrived and hoped to use the free DVD rental amenity for the night, but it wasn't working. The next morning we awoke to a loud noise that progressively got louder during the week. The noise would stop for 30 seconds and then start up again. This went on 24 hours a day. By the time the building maintenance fixed the problem, our nerves were on end, lacked sleep and were leaving the next morning. It could have been a ***** vacation if it weren't for the water pump noise.
Bobby H. from Dallas, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2012 Beautiful beach view, unit awesome, beds very comfy, unit well prepared with everything we needed, door lock needs attention
Sara C. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 Spent 5 days over Labor Day weekend at this condo with my two friends. The condo was VERY clean, beds super comfy, and we loved the TV, board games (it rained a few days) and view. We saw dolphins from the balcony and even though the water was not the blue green I am used too and was full of what I assume was storm debris, we still took full advantage of the chair and umbrellas and swam in the ocean. Not super crowded with tons of kids running around, very enjoyable. Loved being able to just go downstairs and walk right on to the beach. We drove to Destin for food and nightlife, but liked the quietness of Fort Walton in the day. A great stay and I would recommend again. Only complaint was hammering going on next door one morning and lots of noisy air compressors while they were painting the buiding. Felt they should have warned us about all the noise. All in all though, a wonderful time.
Michael B. from Saint Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 I think this was our 4th stay at the Islander. Unit 5006 was probably about my favorite of the 4. It was nicely decorated, had a great view, good TV w/cable, nice patio furniture and kitchen was well equipped. Er had a lovely week. Checking in and out w/ Brooks & Shorey at remote office was fairly easy, but it is inconvenient to have to check in after 4 PM on Saturday but before 5 PM when they close. If you are later than 5, you have to return the next day to sign paperwork or they will hit you with an extra charge. It was more convenient when they were in site.
Jeff B. from Newalla, OK does not recommend this property. Stayed for 1 days in July, 2012 Some jerk people who rented the condo just before us smoked in the condo. ALL areas smelled absolutely disgusting. We had to stay there overnight because of our late arrival. We were upgraded the next three nights, but had to move back to 5006, only to see that it still smelled disgusting. Luckily, the cleaning manager arrived there just after we did. She also verified it smelled strongly of smoke. We were then downgraded for the remaining two nights due to unavailability. It was disappointing having to move three seperate times all the while we were on "vacation". We were not reimbursed for the downgrade condo and having to move around to three condos.
Kelly P. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2012 We loved our stay at The Islander. The condo was very clean and charming. Our beach view was breathtaking. This is our 2nd year in a row at The Islander and we will be back!
Thomas M. from Gibsonia, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2012 We will definitely be coming back. My only thought is keep all the half off coupons, movie card etc. and lower the price! Otherwise, the place was great, clean and I would highly recommend okaloosa island to everyone.
A guest from Dayton, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011 One thing I would suggest. It would be nice if the arrival instructions were sent via e-mail in addition to snail mail. For me, paper letters are too easy to set aside and forget. When I couldn't find anything in my e-mail, I called to confirm our reservation and the address. The person was courteous and helpful. She told me I should have received a letter, but didn't tell me I needed go find that letter or I wouldn't have the cypher code I needed when I arrived after your office closing time. It would have helped to avert last minute panic if an automatic e-mail was generated a couple of days before arrival pointing that fact out.Overall a very nice facility, though it is getting a bit pricy for us.
A guest from Sharpsburg, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 The location of this unit could not have been any better. The view of the ocean was awesome, but even better was the fact that you could leave the patio door open and hear the ocean waves from the unit's living room. This unit is located in a quiet area of the beach, yet still a very short drive to any of the restaurants, shopping or activities that you might want to explore in Destin. My only complaint - and it is a small one - was the bed in our bedroom. The mattress wasn't to my liking, but how often do you travel and get a bed that is as your Select Comfort mattress at home? We would definitely come back here and we would recommend this to our friends!
Terry R. from Farmerville, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2010 This room was great. This room has an XBox with plenty of games. The kids loved it. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Ashley F. from Columbia, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2010 We really enjoyed our stay at the Isalander, we have stayed here before just not in this unit. Our view was great and the condo overall was nice. My husband said the bed was not as comfortable as when we stayed before, but my little boy loved the big pool and hot tub. Loved the umbrella and chairs. We usually go on the Little Nemo fishing trip; however this time only one person is paid for and the child's ticket is the same price as an adult. We were unaware of this at the time of booking and they stated that we were to be notified that it changed the first of April so that trip that is usually free for 2 people cost $30.00. I had a wonderful time and would reccomend this property. We plan to return in the fall if there is no oil or hurricanes and the lord is willing.
Jesse C. from Hampton, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2010 We had a wonderful time, the condo was really nice, great view which was our reason for coming to Ft Walton. We came there to reflex and reflex we did. Thank you for a great spring break.
Jill Z. from Baraboo, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2008 Back on Suite 4001. When someone makes the reservation they should have it upon arrival. The owners should not just be able to come and go as they please. You are interrupting our vacation. Otherwise they should not rent it out.Suite 5006 it was nice. Still needs better pillows and the smaller room needs possibly a different mattress. It was clean and nicely decorated.I left my muddler (crushes the fruit in a mixed drink) there and still needs it sent back. We put it in the dishwasher to be cleaned and forgot to take it out.Thank you!
HUGO S. from MACON, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2008 The property is in a great location. Beautiful view of the gulf and white sand beach from the balcony. Everything you could need was provided for us in this nicely decorated condo. I plan on returning next year.
A guest from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2008 Ft. Walton is a great place. It has beautiful condominiums, great, clean beaches, and the traffic isn't crazy! We were able to go to several nice restaurants there, and we got there in a timely manner! It is a well kept secret! We were actually able to take walks every day. You have sidewalks there, and no fears of getting hit by oncoming traffic. It is the ultimate place to stay! Thanks so much!
Gay H. from Gainesville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2008 My family has been coming to the Islander for the last 8 years, and we love it. My children have grown up coming to Okaloosa Island, and they will their bring their children, as well. We have recommended The Islander to multiple friends and family members. I hope that it stays as comfortable and uncrowded-feeling as it currently is!
Michael H. from Brandon, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2008 Even though this was short trip, only 4 nights, this was one of the best beach trips ever. Everything about the Islander was more than satisfactory.
A guest from Hammond, Louisiana recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2008 The only problem that we have with this property is that all of the gates are locked at night and not unlocked until after 9am. We along with other people could not understand this. At one time, there was and altercation between a worker at the pool and another couple that was staying about the gate not being unlocked while clearly the worker at the pool could have unlocked it for them.(This guy said this was his third year and he had nerver had this problem, so please open the gate.) The workers comment to this person was that he did not have time to babysit everybody who wanted to to go in and out of the gate. This was the morning of July 1 2008. In my opinion, I like to go to the beach at first light as did a number of other people that spent lots of money to stay at your property. Just my opinion!!!

A guest from Aniston, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2008 My only complaint is with the elevators. In addition to no ventilation in the elevators they are both very, very slow.
