Had a Great Time
Alysia S. from Oxford, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2016 We had a wonderful time. The place was clean and had a GREAT view with comfortable patio furniture. Two issues: the drainage in the master bath was very slow and clogged. Not fun standing in water during a shower. The master bed mattress is very hard. And we like firm mattresses and have them at home. This was too hard and uncomfortable to sleep on, but we adjusted. Told the rental management company about both concerns and said they would look into them. Would rent this place again if both issues were resolved. We really liked the building, location and rental company.
A guest from Little Rock, AR does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2016 I wouldn't quite describe this condo as lavish. It is a lot smaller than the pictures show. The cameras real estate companies use today misrepresent properties so we have now learned a lesson. The bedrooms had room for nothing else except the beds and the dresser; not even luggage. The bathrooms and kitchen are very much in need of updating. It is time to replace the mattresses. As you can tell we were disappointed upon arriving and seeing our home away from home for five days. However, the condo was very clean and we had a very good time. The beach was beautiful and we always had chairs and an umbrella available. We found excellent restaurants close to the condo and in Destin. I would not recommend this property until the condo was updated.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review and your feedback. We are sorry that this condo at Islander 7004 was a disappointment to you. However, we are very happy that you enjoyed the other amenities we have to offer, such as the beach service and the fact that the condo is right on the beach with a stunning Gulf front view. We are also glad that you were able to partake in the many wonderful restaurants and activities that Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island has to offer. Thank you for staying with us on the beautiful Emerald Coast.
Mark R. from Fort Worth, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2016 We had the most wonderful time at Fort Walton! Our condo was perfect, and it had a perfect view as well. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The access to the beach was easy and close. Our next trip to Florida will be at Fort Walton and we will be requesting "our" condo! Thank you for sharing!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. What a wonderful review! We are so excited that you enjoyed the Islander 7004 so much and that you were able to discover "your home away from home". We agree that Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island are really amazing and we are so glad that we are able to share our little "jewel" on the Emerald Coast with you. We are very excited to see you back again soon!
Kelly R. from Atlanta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 The condo was decorated beautifully and the bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked.The TV remotes and fire alarms need batteries and the ceiling fan in the living room should be replaced. Other than the weather not so great this year we had a great vacation.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We wish the weather would have been better for you during your visit but then again a cloudy day at the beach is still a day at the beach and there is no comparison to that! Thanks for visiting the Islander 7004 we hope to see you back in the near future!
A guest from Galesurg, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 The condo was very nice and comfortable. The view was amazing. We spent hours just sitting on the balcony enjoying the view. The pool was a great place to visit after a day on the beach. White sand, clear emerald blue ocean, occasional dolphin spotting, and great accommodations. We will return.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. We agree that sitting on the seventh floor beach front balcony provides an amazing and relaxing view of the Gulf. We look forward to you staying with us again on beautiful Okaloosa Island.
Donna N. from Smyrna, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 Couldnt have been better!!! From the moment I called to rent it until the day I left for home it was a WONDERFUL experience. Everyone was so helpful and kind. The property was exactly as advertised. Had everything we needed to make this vacation perfect. The condo was clean and well kept. Even had beach toys for us to use! I would definetly recommend this unit to all my friends!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your kind review, we sincerely appreciate your business! We are absolutely ecstatic that you had the ultimate vacation experience at the Islander 7004 and hope to see you in the future for another beach font excursion!
Jason W. from Lees Summit, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 We just got done staying at the Islander 7004 and we had a great time! Check in was very easy. We got there early so we just enjoyed the beach and venturing around, then they called us and and got us in our room early, bonus!!! The property premises were nice and well taken care of. Pool was always clean and large enough to never feel crowded. The condo was exactly as described and perfect for us and our 4 small children. The view was awesome, easy to get up and down the elevator to the beach/pool. Loved having all the amenities of home especially the washer/dryer. Bed was comfy, lots of extra towels, supply closet had beach toys, skim boards, and a boogie board to enjoy on the beach. The location was perfect because it was just a short 5-10 min drive into Destin for excursions/favorite restaurants but the area of the condo/beach was less crowded. Highly recommend! We will be back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are very gracious for such a thoughtful response and glad to be of assistance to providing you and your family with such an incredible get away at the Islander 7004, it is certainly a pleasure to occur the business of such a pleasant group of folks! We can't wait to see you guys again on your next Gulf Coast vacation!
A guest from Dayton, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in August, 2015 Great way to spend time with grandson and wife. Although they live on Ft Eglin Base, they felt like they were away on vacation when they stayed at the condo. The condo was on the 7th floor and the view was spectacular allowing us to see a variety of sea life, boat activity, military activity in the air and abundant beach activity. The condo was very comfortable, well equipped and nicely decorated. We did most of our meals at the condo as well as visiting a few restaurants. Our favorite meal was seafood at Stewbys and we purchased fresh caught gulf shrimp from Gulf Coast Seafood several times to prepare at the condo. Brooks and Shorey staff was pleasant and immediately responded and took care of a few mechanical problems we had during our two week stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. There is nothing quite like the beautiful Waters of the Emerald Coast. Even as a local who lives here I am still mesmerized by its beauty, so i do completely understand that it still felt like a vacation for your Grandson and his family. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to seeing you again in the future!
Alisha M. from Willard, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 Our stay at the Islander was amazing. This was the first time we stayed in a condo and after this experience won't stay anywhere else. The bedrooms were small but the rest of the unit was very spacious. The view was amazing and had plenty of seating for meals or relaxing. The unit was clean and overall well maintained. The 2 things that caused a very minor inconvenience were the washer not running unless a chair was propped against the door to keep it shut all the way and the shower head in the bathroom spraying water outside the shower. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review. I will pass your message on to the maintenance department. We hope you enjoyed your stay at the Islander Beach Resort and will return soon.
Dewanna W. from Crowville, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 We loved the view from the 7th floor. It was the first time my niece and nephews had been to the beach and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Condo was nice and comfortable.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for submitting the online review! We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Islander and loved the view and the condo. We hope to see you again very soon.
A guest from Decatur, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2015 Lovely condo. Great decor... Couldn't a just AC to comfortable setting(too cold or too hot in rooms)Enjoyed reading a note from owners. It showed they really are concerned about visitors stay.Vaccume cleaner quit working...
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for this perfect review! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to see you again very soon. Thanks for letting us know about the vacuum cleaner, we will have someone check on it.
Candice R. from Streator, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 The condo was great, very clean and had everything we needed, beds were comfortable and the view was amazing!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for completing our online questionnaire, we are happy to hear that the condo was a perfect fit for you and your family! We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Angela B. from Shelbyville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 We enjoyed our stay at this condo. There were four of us on this trip and the minute we walked in, we were impressed. The condo is nice and was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and appliances. Also, the strength of the wifi signal was great. Two teenaged girls and a "techie" husband were happy about that. My husband fished the pier (5 minute drive) while we girls hung out on the beach. The ammenities package was nice also. We went on a dolphin cruise on the SEA BLASTER and had a great time. Free movie rentals were a hit. Fudpuckers was our favorite place to eat, It was well worth the money. Our only dissapointment was that there is not a view to the East from the balcony because of the buiding wall being in the way. We couldn't tell from the pictures that the wall sticks out on the East side. All in all,we loved Okaloosa Island! This was our first trip to the area and we were impressed.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed this beautiful condo! This unit is truly cared for, We truly appreciate your feedback and thank you for choosing Brooks and Shorey Resorts for your Florida vacation!
Debbie H. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 My husband and I along with our three grown children and their families had a wonderful vacation. We rented a total of 4condos in the same building. Every one of our condos were just as nice as the other. The views from our balconies were breath taking. We're hoping to visit again in the near future. The check in process thru Brooks and Shorey was so simple.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Islander Beach Resort... We look forward to welcoming you and your family back again soon!
Hardy J. from Flatwoods, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 Wonderful stay. Check in was easy, the room was clean and well kept, furnished nicely, the pool and grounds were well cared for. We'll be back and would love to stay in the same room or at least the same building.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Always give us a call prior to making your next reservation, we will be happy to apply a return guest discount for you. We look forward to hearing from you.
Michelle W. from Hudsonville, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2015 Our stay was fantastic! The pool size and location is the best of the surrounding properties. And the view was also excellent due to the proximity to the Ocean. The condo itself was clean and comfortable. I love the layout of the condo. My only complaint about the room would be the sofa sleeper is in rough shape and probably should be replaced. Everything else was up to par. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, and utensils. Overall our stay was wonderful.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for providing an online review with regards to your recent stay! We will pass your comments onto the owner regarding the sleeper sofa! We hope to see you again very soon on Okaloosa Island! ***UPDATE*** The owner has since replaced the sleeper sofa! (June 2015) Thank you for your feedback!
Tim W. from Ringgold, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 We only stayed for 3 nights and the weather was not the best, but we had a great time and enjoyed the condo very much.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Fingers crossed for some of that great Florida Sunshine during your next visit!
Holly S. from Niceville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2014 We enjoyed our stay very much and liked the cozy feel of the condo #7004. The owners decorated the unit nicely and we really felt at home. The view of the Gulf was magnificent and we would love to come back again in the future! Candace was wonderful and helped us to get settled in this unit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for the lovely review! I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay in this unit. We hope to see you and the rest of your family again for another reunion :)
Melissa D. from Acworth, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014 It was wonderful. Only down side was the WiFi. It was a very weak connection.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your online review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed the condo and had a wonderful time! Hope to see you again at the Islander Beach Resort!
Chris T. from La Vergne, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2014 This was my first time back to the beach in many years. This rental was accommodating & very welcoming. It was exactly how I pictured it would be. It had everything I/we needed. Fully furnished to accommodate all of our needs. This condo I will never forget because I will remember this was the placed I proposed to my girlfriend. The condo was perfect, the beach was perfect, & the location. We will chose this condo again or any other offer by Brooks & Shorey Resorts. Thank you to the owners & to B & S for an unforgettable Vacation.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review, we are very happy that you were able to go back to the place that it all started with you and your girlfriend! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future!
Rhonda G. from Shreveport, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 I have been staying at the Islander since 2001 and this time was as wonderful as the others!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. It is great to hear that you return year on year at the Islander. We are happy that as always you enjoyed your vacation and look forward to welcoming you back again for your annual trip!
A guest from evansville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2014 Everything was amazing!! The condo was clean and very comfortable, loved how everything was decorated. The views were stunning and the atmosphere was so relaxing. Brooks and shorey went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and we will definitely return again!!

So glad you enjoyed your stay and that you family vacation was absolutely amazing! We are happy you truly enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to seeing you again very soon on the Okaloosa Island! Be sure to ask abut our return customer discount when you decide to come back!
barbara E. from livonia, michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2014 The room and view is exactly what you see. I loved the balcony size andIts high enough that you are not bothered by pool noise. Location is close to so many restaurants and fun. Only thing not mentioned is you are only allowed 2 chairs from resort on beach so if there is 4 of you, you need to pay 20 $....not a deal killer just wanted to give feedback.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for writing this review. The amenities package you do receive has two chairs and one umbrella out on the beach each day for you. As you said, more sets can be rented from the beach service provider. We are glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay at the Islander Beach Resort. This resort really is perfect for a family vacation!
Sherri G. from Whitehall, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014 Great value and location. Took my family of 6 grown children and this unit fit us perfectly. Nice views of beach overlooking the pool. The only 2 complaints are the elevators are scary, thought we were going to get stuck in one the doors slammed shut unevenly and it would not move so we decided to only ride the other elevator but its moves very slow. The other complaint is the carpets were pretty dirty, where you walk through from living to porch that is why I only gave it 4 stars on general condition, its not a deal breaker and we would gladly stay here again. At check it they were very pleasant, recommending places to eat and full of information about the area. Overall we are happy with the great value and place and will come back again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you very much for your review! We are glad you had enjoyed your time and liked this condo. Thanks for bringing our attention to the carpets - we will have them cleaned right away! We hope to see you again soon in Fort Walton Beach!
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 I enjoyed the property and having umbrellas and chairs available was a great trip. The property was clean and well maintained and loved the beach view. This is perfect if you are looking for quieter area but still want to be within minutes of Destin.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are glad ou enjoyed your stay with us! We hope to see you again soon!
A guest from Knoxville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 elevators very slow and the carpet was in real bad shape, pool and landscape nice, great location and balcony furniture
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank yoiu for taking the time to write this review, We will pass on your comments regarding the carpets, this helps the owners better understand the needs of their guests. We hope that we will see you again soon!
Laura W. from Lees Summit, Missouri does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 Upon our arrival, both elevators were not working. Just awful considering we were on the top (7th) floor! Dragged 5 suitcases up to the 7th floor....not a great way to start a vacation. They worked off and on for the next few days. Really terrible when they did work, as they were very slow, and you were worried you might get trapped....and heard someone did get trapped. When you pay so much for a condo, you know that much of that goes to maintaining the who is not maintaining?? You hold your guests to certain standards or they will be charged extra fees, yet you are not held to the same standards?? We even saw a young man with crutches trying to navigate the stairs, and had we had elderly guests with us, there is NO way we could have stayed at The Islander. Really dissappointing that such a nice location and nice clean condo experience was severly dampened due to the elevator problem....
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review! Please accept our apologies for the elevator outage. Unfortunately, our company is not responsible for the elevator maintenance so we have no control over that issue. We have contacted the management company who takes care of the common areas at the Islander Beach Resort - which includes the elevators - and inquired about the status of the elevators. They did let us know that the elevators were undergoing an annual maintenance check that week and also that the HOA is considering replacing the elevators in that building in the near future. Thank you for your input which we have forwarded to the HOA of the Islander Beach Resort. We really appreciate it! We hope that despite these issues you were able to enjoy your stay and we hope to see you again in Fort Walton Beach, FL!
A guest from Clinton, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013 The condo is exactly how it appears on website. Nice but overpriced. The sheets/matress pad in master bedroom were not as clean as I expected. I reported to office but they seemed unconcerned but replaced bedding as requested. Still a nice condo with a good view.
A guest from Birmingham, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013 We had a great time at the Islander! The condo was more spacious that we expected and the layout was perfect. The view was amazing! My only complaint would be that the elevators are slow and HOT. Other than that it was a wonderful week in paradise!
A guest from Franklin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013 The condo was really nice. We were concerned about being so high up but could see the water perfectly. Have stayed at Islander before but this was one of the better condos. Only drawback the twin beds are really small. Too short for my 18-year-old son.
Brian S. from Arlington, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012 We spent a week at the location with 2 young children. We had a fabulous time. Everything including the condo was perfect.
A guest from Hot Springs, ARKANSAS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 the staff was great but it was 0540 when we got in our one out of two condo there was bar soap and a dirty brush in the main bathroom and the carpet in the condos look like they needed shampoo, where was the hot tub? there was not one and the elevator was very bad my son and i and my sister in law did the stairs most of the time, the fire alarm went off because of the elevator lol the movie rental did not work. and the doors did not lock the glass ones they were crazy to close lol but the view and pool was great,, i just did not like having to drive 3 times to get the keys.
A guest from Lafayette, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 Nice location and quiet. We enjoyed our stay and the condo was nicely decorated and clean and comfortable. Would stay again!
Michelle H. from Spanish Fort, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 Nice weekend trip to the Gulf. Only stayed 2 nights and did not have interest in "free" amenities, other than the beach chairs and umbrella. We would have preferred to have a more discounted rate than pay for them in the rental package.
A guest from Baton Rouge, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2011 This was one of the best vacations I have had in a while. the condo was very nice. The beach attendants were helpful and nice. The only compliant I have is the elevator was too slow and hot.
Chris S. from Sussex, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2011 One thing my husband noticed was the carts used for loading luggage were filthy-could probably use washing at times. Hard to put our stuff on their.
Dale H. from Marietta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 This condo needs to upgrade the TV to a larger flat screen digital system. Other units have flat screen TVs that are compatible with game systems, This will be a factor in slecting our next rental.
A guest from Marion, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2010 This was our first time to stay with you for our annual Girls' Trip. The people and atmosphere were outstanding. The beach was not too crowded, the water was clear and beautiful, and our condo was topnotch. We will definitely be back. The only complaint we might have is the elevators were somewhat slow and lacked any sort of air ventilation!
Jennifer C. from Hogansville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2009 Our room was awesome. It felt more like home than a condo rental. I did not want to leave. We stayed in 7004 and the view was great. The master bed was very comfy. The condo was very clean. I can't say enough good about my stay. I will be back.
Ken M. from Plano, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2009 This was our first time to the area. We loved everything about our trip. The condo was extremely clean and beautifully decorated. We will definitely stay there again.
Garlond L. from Warner Robins, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2009 Nid not stay. Wife was in hospital. Requested refund; however, one was not provided. Was not informed of policy at booking; therefore, to late to receive a refund.
Singer D. from Rolla, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2009 Very satisifed with the stay. Property was clean; facilities nice! The top dishwasher tray is a bit shaky, but otherwise everything was just great!
A guest from Marietta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2009 Convenient for the kids, with pool and beach right out the door, and close enough to Destin to go for dinner etc but isolated enough to avoid the hustle and bustle
Lisa B. from Tuscaloosa, Alabama does not recommend this property. Stayed for 1 days in June, 2008 The actual property was beautiful, the unit was well maintained and nicely decorated. Unfortunetly it is managed by Brooks and Shorey, which I found to be disorganized and uninterested in customer service.
Dina M. from Rayne, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2008 The condo was so nice and spacious. It was well stocked and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay and looking forward to coming back.
Melinda R. from Foxworth, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2008 The condo was decorated beautifully! Everything was clean and in good working order. When we vacation in the area again, I want this same condo!
Lauren M. from Montgomery, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2008 we stayed in 7004, and the owners really did a nice job with the decor, it was so beautiful! we had a blast and really enjoyed our stay! thank you!
A guest from Pontotoc, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2008 We LOVED our room it was perfect for us and our 2 small children, 3yrs and 9 months. We loved being able to walk right down to the beach and the view from our balcony was breathtaking.
Richard & Carol R. from Jenison, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2008 This was the 7th year that we have stayed at this property during our Spring Break. We stay with three other families and we all have a wonderful time!The guys all enjoy the opportunity to play a few rounds of golf during the week and we have even gone on the dolphin cruise a couple of the years. We like the location A LOT because it isn't in the middle of a busy area and road. The Santa Rosa Blvd is nothing but Condo Bldgs and The Islander is almost to the end so we feel like we are secluded -- NICE! It is a very convenient trip to the grocery store -- PUBLIX which is right down to the end of the Blvd and then to the left over the bridge and an immediate right into the parking lot.We liked the opportunity to be able to look online and pick our unit this past year. We were able to choose one of the rooms that we stayed at several years ago and loved the decorating. Also, it is nice if you have two siblings of the opposite sex and would prefer twin beds as opposed to a double. Some years that posed a problem when we didn't really know what bedroom the kids would get. The access to the pool and the beach is great. We love the fact that we can go onto the beach have our beach chairs and umbrella set up and take a break for lunch and go right back out to the same chairs because they are assigned to us. It is great!!Only complaint is that the property is getting older and some of the condo units need some updating ? especially in the kitchens.We would defininately recommend this property to everyone coming down to the Ft Walton Beach/Desting area!!!
A guest from ames, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2008 Enjoyed our stay overall, but felt that the unit could have been a little cleaner. There needed to be more deep cleaning done. Would have also preferred that the rental office be on site.
Constance B. from Huntsville, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2007 The person at the counter was rude and not helpful at all. I felt that I was imposing on her trying to check in.
Gay H. from Gainesville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2007 We have been coming to Okaloosa Island from north Georgia since our two children were very small (they are now in college)and for the past 8 or 9 years, we have stayed at Islander. We chose it one year walking along the beach side, for its large pool and its large balconies. Once we stayed there, we decided that it was by far the BEST of the rental properties on Okaloosa Island -- at least for our family. The floor plans are very open and comfortable, with plenty of light from the gulfside -- it never feels "pinched" as some newer gulfside condos have felt. I have always liked the decor of the units, the quietness of the residents, and the hot tub (when it's clean and full) is a DEFINITE asset (though I admit, I dislike when it's full of little children). We really like being toward the end of the island, and the water/beach line right there has always been wonderful. I know hurricanes in recent years has changed the beach line, but we still love Okaloosa, and Islander in particular. This is a very special place for all my family, and we will be back -- I hope -- for many years to come.
