Amazing Condo and view
Janette H. from Cookeville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 This condo was perfect for our family of 4 adults and 2 kids. This staff at Brooks and Shorey Resorts was most helpful and friendly. Our condo #6011 was very clean and had everything we needed not to mention the awesome view. I give the Islander a 5 star.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We could not be more thrilled to hear that you had such a fantastic stay with us at the Islander and that our staff was helpful to you, we always want to make sure our guests enjoy their vacation and it sure sounds like your family did enjoy your time here, we hope to see you again soon.
A guest from Lebanon, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2015 We loved the location of this rental. The view of the ocean couldn't be better. Condo was spacious. Bathroom by the pool smelled of urine (We only used once due to this). At check-in the employee was rude, but everyone else I dealt with was friendly. This was not a big problem since I didn't have to contact them again. The condo itself was very clean. I would recommend.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so glad that enjoyed your condo, and the beautiful view! We are extremely sorry that your check in was not courteous! We do not manage the grounds at the Islander, but we will be sure to take your feedback on the bathroom to the management company at the Islander. Thank you so much for your review and for your feedback!
Linda M. from Desoto, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2015 We really enjoyed our stay. Updated, super-clean 3BR condo with great views of the Gulf. Nicely equipped kitchen (even had a crockpot!) Comfortable rooms with nice furniture. The full-size laundry was a nice bonus. Would definitely recommend renting this unit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for the awesome review, we love to hear such great feedback from our guests and we are so happy that you had such a great stay with us at the Islander Beach Resort and in unit 6011.

Pam Y. from Slidell, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 I would like to see some sort of security or plan in place to keep just anybody from using the pool. Over the years I have seen groups of people park in the public lot next door then come over and use the pool.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you very much for taking time to fill out the online review and most of all for being a return customer. We always love seeing you! Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about others trespassing but we can certainly mention this issue to the HOA and hope they will try to resolve it somehow. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
kathy m. from dillsboro, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 Our condo was extremely nice, clean. The Patio was roomy for all of us to be on the balcony. Our TV Cable was off and the owner himself came out to try and correct the issue, After a few days, we were able to access the TV channels. I would recommend this to all of my friends as a terrific place to stay. Everyone was extrememly nice.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the great review! We appreciate your feedback and your positive comments. We are happy that you called the issue through to us enabling us to sort the the TV out during your stay. We hope to welcome you and your friends back to Okaloosa Island again soon!

NANCY J. from TUCKER, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 What a wonderful and restful stay! We have stayed in this unit for the last three times at the beach. It is so tastefully decorated with pastel colors. The furnishings are great. The high seats on the balcony are wonderful to view the ocean. Kitchen with everything you need. In my opinion , the best unit on Okaloosa Island.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for this positive, perfect review! We are glad that this beautiful unit has lived up to your expectations the last 3 years... we hope to see you again year on year!
A guest from Rockwood, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2015 We liked the beach, had fun and condo was clean but not as nice as other places I have stayed in the past. I would stay again if the price was right.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for completing our online questionnaire, we hope to welcome you back again in the future, possibly in a different condo?
A guest from Dora, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2014 The room was great! We had an awesome time. The pool needing cleaning more and the outside restroom was never cleaned the whole time we were there (5days). The restroom was even out of toilet paper for our last two days and we had to run in the men's and get it - not happy. I do recommend this unit for anyone looking for a place to stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review! We are glad that you have enjoyed the condo you rented through Brooks and Shorey Resorts. Your comments about the pool and the pool restrooms are worrisome, we will definitely contact the association management company who is supposed to be taking care of the common areas and ask them to pay more attention to the pool and pool restrooms. We truly apologize for that! Hopefully you still have a great time and will come back to the Islander soon!
DON A. from COVINGTON, LOUISIANA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 We always enjoy our stay at the Islander. Condo 6011 was clean and a nice stay. My only complaint about the complex is: when walking from the bbq pit area to the parking lot, there's some valves and piping sticking out of the side of the building at about 5 foot off the ground. this is dangerous and a huge safety hazard. my son was luckily walking and not running and hit his head on the valves. he hit hard enough hat he was knocked to the ground and had about a 1 inch cut on his head. not enough for stiches but he was in pain and dizzy. It was not during office hours on Sunday. So I didn't go into the office to report it. Again the condo was great but the complex needs to address this safety hazard, especially when it is at head level.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking the time to complete our online questionnaire. We are so sorry to hear about the incident involving your son. Our offices are open on Sunday (Brooks and Shorey Resorts). However the association of this building (the people working the desk on site) are responsible for the building and we will be sure to let them know about this incident. We are however happy that you enjoyed your stay at our unit 6011 at the Islander Beach Resort. We hope to welcome you back again soon!
A guest from Batton Rouge, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 As always, we had a wonderful time in this particular unit. We have stayed here now 3 times and always enjoy the layout and the decor. We are always comfortable, except for one thing this year; the pull out sofa bed FRAME was broken, so we had to simply put the mattress on the floor for 2 of our family to sleep on. Other than that, everything was fine.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for taking time to fill out the online review and most of all, thank you for being a return customer! We are very sorry to hear about the broken mechanism on the sleeper sofa! We only wish you would have called us to report it as soon as you saw it was broken. We would have done our best to replace it to make sure nobody has to sleep on the floor! Again, please accept our apologies and please know that you can call us at any time to report such issues and we will do our best to remedy the situation immediately. We are happy to hear that despite of this you had a great time and we hope to see you again at the Islander!
Ray L. from Langhorne, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2014 We appreciate the updated appliances and large TV. We enjoy the light, pastel color scheme ~ very "beachy". The recliner needs cleaning, and the tile floor needs replacement.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We will be sure to pass your comments onto our housekeeping department. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and appreciate you taking the time to write this review!

The condo was lovely and spacious, the bedrooms were all nice with comfortable beds, and the kitchen was well stocked with pans, plates, appliances, etc. The view from the balcony was amazing... watching the sunrise and sunset while sitting there was awesome. We would definitely choose this location again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We look forward to seeing you again soon!... We also agree... there is something very soothing about watching the sunrise/set over the ocean.
Louis K. from Batton Rouge, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2013 This is the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed in these condiminiums.....and we have NEVER been disappointed. The Brooks & Shorey staff are delightful and very helpful, too.

Richard P. from Clinton, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 the elevators were in very bad condition and scary. we would not stay here again until they are completely rebuilt.
Laura N. from Campton, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 Beautiful! We loved it! One the the kids said it was the most beautiful place he had ever been. Would highly recommend Islander 6011 to any family. Can't wait to go back.
Jenny L. from Modoc, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 Very nice condo. I would stay again in this location but hopefully on a lower floor. The slow ride to the 6 th floor was very hot and sometimes inconvienent otherwise, a very nice experience. And I wish we could have stayed longer
NANCY J. from TUCKER, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2013 We enjoyed every minute in this condo. We come to the Islander every time we come to Okaloosa Island. This unit is perfect in every way. The tasteful decorations, the peaceful colors, the cleanliness of the unit. Nice place to get away and relax.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed the condo and your vacation and hope to see you again very soon.
A guest from Edwardburg, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2013 The property had a vacation feel to it and was open and spacious. Closet space was enormous. It would have been nice to have access to washer/dryer without going through a bedroom (only a minor inconvenience). Great location. Well stocked with towels and washcloths. We would have preferred clearer check out procedures. Overall, excellent experience and we would definitely use property again.
Ray L. from Langhorne, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in January, 2013 We've been coming to Flaida. for more than a dozen years, almost all at the same location and most in the same unit. We are very happy with the whole experience. The location is great and the service from realtor and building management is very professional and friendly. The units are well supplied and clean. Any need that may arrise is attended to promptly.
Ken L. from Saint Charles, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012 Excellent place, we enjoyed the place immensely. The condo was clean, everything worked properly. We will stay hear again next year.
Richard C. from campbell, missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 Great location on the beach. Good restaurants located within a short drive which was very convenient; but, kept the beach crowd down.
Reviewed by: DAVID F. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 Stayed during 4 th of July week. We had 5 adults and two younger teenagers. The condo was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed. The only issue was the condo is on the 6th floor and the elevators run very slow. Also where the condo is located on the island there was not much for the kids to do other than pool and beach. The board walk is not far in driving distance but wouldn't want to walk there. Seems to be alot more things to do for kids in the destin area such as arcades and mini golf and these things are located close to condos. The traffic there is alot worse though. But for adults this condo is very nice and for younger children who you wouldn't let wonder off anyways.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 We loved the location and the amenities our unit provided. Affordable, pleasant - great location. View and facility were outstanding. We will go back.
A guest from Mount Pleasant, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 Our vacation was fabulous. Everything in the condo was as shown, and the staff at check-in/out was very courteous, professional, and helpful. Our family stayed in 6011 and 6012. We would recommend these same condos and are playing on staying here again. What a view! It was absolutely wonderful to sleep with the sliding door open and hear the surf at night.
Ramon R. from Harvey, Louisiana recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 Despite the rain, we very much enjoyed our visit. This is our third year visiting. The only thing I would add would be better balcony furniture.
NANCY J. from TUCKER, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2012 We stayed at the Islander room - 6011 for two years now. The room is oceanfront. It is extremely clean. We enjoyed our time there. The owner has decorated the unit very tastefully. You get an instant feel of restfulness. The rooms are decorated in pastels and it has beautiful beachy paintings. We would go there again.
A guest from Chelsey, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 We loved our stay and would love to return! The Panhandle is the best part of Florida, the beach was beautiful & the condo was great and included a very nice kitchen. The sound of the ocean, the view, the friendly,down to earth, courteous people, the staff at Brooks & Shorey,lots of families enjoying time together... including ours; all made it well worth the drive.
A guest from Langhorne, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in March, 2012 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Islander. We have been renting the same unit (6011) for several years and appreciate the improvements that the owners have made over that time.
Destany O. from Raceland, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2011 Very Clean, great view. Very great experience. Loved it and def will go back to this same place. My only complaint is that the ice maker couldnt keep and i wish that there was a ice maker on the property. oh and the elevators are very slow.
A guest from Jefferson City, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2011 We vacationed at the Islander Beach resort for 5 nights (2 units). Vacation was great! Lady at check it was extremely helpful (and patient) when I called a couple of times to see if rooms were ready prior to check in. Both units were very clean and setup was pefect for our family stay. The only complaint I heard was that the wifi in room 6012 was more like dial up. The wifi in our rm 6011 was strong. Pool was always clean and roomy for our large group, always pool chairs available too. Beach was clean and the guys setting up chairs were extremely helpful, they came around a few times asking if everything was ok and if we needed something. The adults in our group would have liked to of seen a beach volley ball net up but I realize not all vacationers would be interested in this. Overall, the Islander Beach Resort was the perfect stay for us. I've already recommended it to others!!!!
Reviewed by: Carey B. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2011 my family just stayed at the Islander the weekend of 5/20/11 and found everything to be as we would like if we were living at home. The only complaints I would give is the ice maker in our condo never made enough ice (don't know if the freezer just wasn't cold enough) and the elevator was slower than any other I've ever been on but everything else was so nice. We loved the decor and the view was exceptional. Loved hearing the ocean at night in our master suite.
Jane B. from Niceville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 Couldn't have stayed in a nicer place. The condo was clean, the furnishings were nice and the balcony was wonderful as it extends the entire width of the unit. The beach was as usual, fantastic!We would definately stay there again.
we have stayed with brooks and shorey for about 7 years--[williams and josey family] and up to this year it has been a great fam
A guest from Jacksonville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2010 shorey took and addtional $1900 out of our checking account--on monday we had checks bouncing everywhere. we made a call to brooks and shorey. they blamed us for it---the cashier check was in the mail and on the desk on monday the 7th. --in texas the mail doesn't deliver on sunday--because they choose to pulled the money on sunday it spoiled the vacation for the williams family---we did not tell the josey party what happen.we had to go to the bank and move money out of our saving to catch the checks that were bouncing. mr shorey had the rude answer that it was our fault because we didn;t call that the check would be one day late of the 30 day pre-pay.we didn't tell the josey because we did not want to spoil their vacation.--for the williams family i think this will be the last of our vacations with brooks and shorey.there was a different class of people staying at the condo this year--on thursday --some one used the bathroon in the pool. the people staying in the condo next to us piple their trash outside the door until there was nothing but a trail to the door.i think my biggest gripe is that brooks and shorey were really quick to take the money out of our account--but took their time putting it back. ''SHAME ON YOU'' THE WILLIAMS FAMILY.
A guest from New Hope, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2010 The condo was much nicer than we expected. Everything was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen contained everything we needed and more. Being so near to the beach and pool were added conveniences, making our stay a relaxing escape.
Herbert P. from Springfield, La. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2010 Having to drop of key by 10:00 a.m. is way to early. No other condo are hotel makes you get out by that time. Are pay 1/2 price for a full day!
Brenda H. from Gautier, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2010 my stay was the best. my sisters and myslef! it is five of us. we take a vacation together every year. but we all say this was our best vacation. we all love the condo. it was very clean. and if you want to know. YES WE WILL BE BACK.MRS HAMMOND!!!!!THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
A guest from Langhorne, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in March, 2010 While the unit is showing signs of wear (the tile floor, maroon recliner, green porch furniture whose color rubs off on clothing, etc.), we do appreciate the new couch and other updates.
A guest from O' Fallon, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2009 We had a great time at the Islander. The property is a little older but very well maintained. Only dissapointing thing was the elevator - so overall we were very happy.
Nathan S. from birmingham, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2009 We have been coming to the Islander for probably 10 years now and we absolutely love it. It is very family friendly and the location is great. Our recent stay however we found a few discrepancies. We stayed on the 6th floor and apparently someone had vomited on there way out of the elevator. This was there the second day we arrived, and stayed until we left. We had to pass it every time we went to the elevator. The second thing is that the girls bathroom at the pool area was not in clean condition at all. My wife and daughter complained of this for the first few days. Overall we love the Islander and will definitely return. These were definitely isolated incidents, but you should at least be aware.Thanks!
Ray L. from Langhorne, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 59 days in January, 2009 Generally we were very satisfied with our stay. Tess and eva were great as always. While we were generally happy with our unit, some of the furniture and flooring needs updating. We were disapointed that we couldn't stay longer than 3/14 without paying a premium. Also that we paid for half a month in March but were asked to leave after 14 nights of a 31-day month ~ this while being asked to pay for one day in December after arriving late on the 31st. We feel that we are owed a day.
Ray L. from Langhorne, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in December, 2008 Living room: Couch is faded and soiled; One pink chair is soiled and stained. We appreciate the TVs, Refrigerator, and dishwasher. Bed in master bedroom is very comfy. We like the MB shower. The Islander's "party room" is a BIG plus.
A guest from Liberty, Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2008 The actual property that I stayed in was great, but the people from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. were not professional. We booked our stay in Feb. 2008 at the Azure for June, and the day we arrived they decided to clean the carpet. We have a baby that was only crawling and they expected us to stay there when the carpet wouldn't be dry until the next day. No apologies, no discount, and definitely no compasion; just a shrug of the shoulders. The Islander was a great place to stay, just not we had booked. I would never use Brooks and Shorey again. They have no problem taking your payment in full when you book,let you drive 12 hours with two small children, and just say oops after their mistake and a long drive. This was Brooks and Shorey's problem not mine. You can use other property management places to stay at the Islander so make a wise choice and do so.
Lisa B. from Jemison, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2008 hurricane shutters need new tie down straps, they bang in the wind day and night keeping you awake and or annoyed. otherwise, no problems.
Ray L. from Langhorne, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 28 days in March, 2008 Furniture (inside and out) is dated and showing signs of wear. Popcorn ceiling continually "snows". TV, refrigerator, and dishwasher are very nice. Table/Desk in living room was appreciated. TV in bedroom with trundle bed was not connected. We loved the stall shower in the master bath. Kitchen was well supplied.
