Lisa C. from Cary, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2016 Sherry in the rental office could not have been nicer, very professional and extremely responsive. We can not say enough nice things about her.Great location & balcony furniture.The condo was NOT as pictured. The fronts of cabinets in the kitchen & bathrooms are peeling off. The toilet in the master moved up & down when one sat on it. The cold air return was FILTHY. Even though the unit is for sale, things should be maintained better.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review and your feedback, we definitely do always appreciate any feedback from our guests. We do apologize for the issues, we have new cabinets on order to install in this condo. We also have made housekeeping and maintenance aware of the problem with the toilet and the cold air return. However, we are very happy that your overall experience with our Brooks and Shorey Resorts team was very satisfactory and that Sherri was able to help you out during your stay. We do hope that you will be able to come stay with us again in the future to make more beautiful vacation memories on the amazing Okaloosa Island.
A guest from Amelia, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 I didn't have a great experience with the room I stayed in. Had to call maintenance two times, the first two days.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review and your feedback. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your vacation in the Islander 7008 and that this condo did not fit your vacation needs. Our goal is for you to have an amazing vacation experience, we wish that we would have been able to produce that for you. Thank you for staying with us on the stunning Emerald Coast.
A guest from Joplin, MO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2016 Wonderful beach experience. The unit unfortunately was below my standard of cleanliness so this made the stay uncomfortable. The white floor and white floor trim was filthy. I found a large drop of gooey something on the bedside table. There was toothpaste spit on the shell soap holder in the bathroom. I've never been in a condo so unsupplied. No salt and pepper, no plastic cups for the kids, no liquid soap to wash your hands, pen or paper. This was to be our home for most of the week, not a hotel room. The preview pictures conveniently left out all the cabinets the veneer was peeling off of. The closet doors were falling down. Especially for the price we paid.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so sorry you ran into some cleanliness issues while you were here this is certainly not the impression we want our guests to have. Those items should not have been overlooked, however we wish you would have given us a call while you were here so we could have had those issues taken care of this immediately. We do have a friendly and helpful staff available at your service to take care of these types of circumstances and ensure that you are getting the most out of your vacation experience. A complimentary initial supply of necessities is supplied in every unit. The initial supply includes:toilet paper (2 rolls in each bathroom,) trash liners (2-3 in each condo,) bath soap (1 in each bathroom) and dishwasher soap (1 box.) A pen and notepad was supplied to you in your gift bag that you received upon check in. Thank you for letting us know about the cabinets and closet doors, we will schedule a maintenance technician to address those items. We are glad you enjoyed the scenic beach front views and hope that you will still keep us in mind for future vacation plans, we do have several other different units (each individually owned and furnished) on our program that maybe more suited to your individual preferences.
Vonda S. from Richmond, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 The condo was very spacious and had a beautiful view of the ocean. It was quieter on this part of the beach and our pictures were beautiful with the beautiful landscaping and cleanliness.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for your very gracious five star review. We are absolutely elated that you enjoyed your time with us so much in this lovely condo at Islander 7008. We agree that Okaloosa Island does always maintain peace and serenity, even during peak season. We hope that you will be able to come back and stay with us again in the future on the breathtaking Okaloosa Island.
Carrie T. from Winston, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 Our experience was extraordinary. I had 2 units and other family members were there as well. Everything was perfect for us.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. That is what we love to hear! Thanks for choosing Brooks and Shorey for your summer time getaway needs, we hope to see you guys back at the beach again next year!
Kathleen L. from Brodhead, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2016 This property is located on the peaceful west end of the island. Restaurants and shops are located closer to the bridge. The codo was a bit over furnished for our taste, with way too many mirrors . . . walls of them! The balcony was very large and the view and access to the beach was great. Two bathrooms was a plus. The movie kiosk with complementary movie rentals was no longer at the location indicated on information we received, and no one knew that. We were finally directed to a machine at another property. It was a little frustrating as we chased all over looking for it.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. I am glad you found the condo relaxing and peaceful, we apologize for the inconvenience of trying to locate the dvd rental machine, it is currently changing locations and we will be able to be more informative to our guests as to where the location will be, we do hope to see you again soon.
A guest from Clinton, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2015 Condo was just as described. Clean, spacious, well equipped. It was even a little larger than we had envisioned. Didn't have a baking sheet, called and one was brought to us that day. Maintenance worked on the ice maker and Didn't get it fixed but we had ice trays and that worked okay. Would definitely rent the condo again. The free golf and beach chairs/ umbrella were an added bonus.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are so happy to hear that your condo was up to your expectations and we appreciate your review so much! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay on Okaloosa Island with us and that you were able to enjoy the amenities that we offer our guests! We are very pleased that you called us about the couple of issues you had and that we were able to take care of those for you, we appreciate guest feedback on anything while you are here so that we have the opportunity to resolve it for you. We definitely hope to see you again in the future!
Stephen J. from Pike Road, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2015 The view from 7008 was exceptional. Both sunrise and sunset were beautiful. The 2 rockers on the balcony were a nice touch and we spent much time there reading and watching the beach action. The property was in a good location for grocery shopping, gas and quick stops for beverages.However, the rooms in 7008 were in dire need of a refresh and thorough cleaning. The furniture was worn, the living room rug was very dirty and the TVs were from the 90's. The tubs didn't drain well and the sink in the small bathroom would barely drain until I worked on it. The phone did not work (we had cell phones so I guess this is a small problem) and the general appearance of the condo was tired and worn.But the view was nice and the balcony was comfortable.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for completing our online review, we will be sure to escalated your feedback to the owner with regards to updates that are needed in the condo.
A guest from Benton, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 The view and location was amazing. I stay in the Destin area often and love it. This was my first time on Okaloosa Island I loved being right on the beach and the beach chair service was the BEST. Check In/Out was easy. The air couldn't be turned down lower than 75 degrees. The note said it would freeze up. So it was a little warmer in the unit than I prefer. The patio furniture was new and very nice and the living room/dining room furniture seemed new as well. The beds were both terrible. Old like you could feel the springs. Pillows were old and lumpy. I was very very sore from sleeping. I couldn't even turn my head by the time we left. The bedding was old and rough. The smaller "guest" room had a musty smell to it. I was glad there were only 2 of us staying so no one had to be in that room. While the kitchen cabinets and fixtures could use some updating, I knew I was paying for the view and location. The beds/bedding were the worst part and the smell in the spare room was allergy provoking. If beds could be upgraded and new bedding/pillows, I would come back. Until then I wouldn't recommend staying here. I would have paid more to get some sleep while on vacation...
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for completing our online questionnaire, we will pass your comments onto the owner with regards to the beds. We hope to welcome you back to Fort Walton again in the future!
A guest from Pineville, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 This condo was a great place to stay. The beach access was a quick walk from your room. Brooks and Shorey are excellent resort managers. I recommend staying at any of their properties.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you so much for this excellent review! We appreciate your nice comments and thank you so much for being a return customer. We look forward to seeing you again.
A guest from Glasgow, Kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2015 We love Ft. Walton beach and we really love this unit. It's very roomy and nicely decorated. It looks just like the pictures. We've stayed here several times and it's always very neat and clean. The last time we stayed a few years ago there was a minor issue with the dishwasher and maintenance came right away a repaired it. The pool is very clean and never crowded. We appreciate the family atmosphere. Wicker rockers have been added to the balcony since we last stayed and we really enjoyed those since we spend most of our time on the balcony when we are in the unit. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Ft. Walton.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the great review, we are happy you have found this wonderful unit that is perfect for your family vacation. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future!
Jennifer A. from Franklin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 Condo was very comfy. Everything we needed was there. Blender had a short and was replaced immediately.Overall very nice! Rocking chairs on balcony were a popular sitting spot.

A guest from dandridge, TN - Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in May, 2015 This condo was very well kept. View was perfect. We had a great stay. The staff members were really nice and helpful. We loved the free movies. The only thing I would have preffered would have been a couple blankets. The location was perfect.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the 5 star review! If you ever find that your unit is short of something then please call, we would have been happy to have sent housekeeping over with a blanket for you. We look forward to welcoming you back to Brooks and Shorey again soon!

Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are glad you had an enjoyable vacation at the Islander Beach Resort, We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future!
A guest from Russell Springs, KY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2015 A few things not happy with, the elevators did not work part of the time and we were on 7th floor so not good. The movie rental being off site was inconvenient so we never used. We scheduled the sea blaster and the lady did not want to schedule us and was discouraging about the trip. Overall, we had a great time and did not let these things interfere with that but we would probably choose another condo to stay out when we return.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for completing our online questionnaire, we apologized that you experienced these problems during your stay. Please always feel free to call us whenever you have a problems and we will always be happy to help where possible. We hope to welcome you back again soon!
Amanda T. from Tompkinsville, Kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2014 This is the 4th time we have stayed at the Islander Beach and 7008 was no different than the others. It was wonderful. A beautiful condo and views that are to die for. This is my happy place and not mention my husband and children ages 9, 4 and 9 months love it too!! On a side note, Floyd's was a wonderful place to eat. We ate there for the first time this trip!! :)
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you very much for taking the time to do our online review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the Islander once again! We appreciate you staying with us and look forward to seeing you again in Fort Walton Beach!
Maggie L. from Passadena, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 We really enjoyed our stay, we had an Awesome time. The condo was exactly how it appears on the website. The view is beautiful from the seventh floor balcony. We enjoyed the Dolphin's that decided to play in front of the condo in the morning and some days in the early evening. The weather was on our side and was on the beach everyday. Enjoyed many good local restaurants, would have to say the best was McGuire's. Brooks and Shorey Resorts personal were a pleasure to work with to ready us for such a awesome vacation. They had the condo clean and ready to enjoy. We will recommend this condo/beach to our friends and family. Pasadena, MD
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for the wonderful review! We are glad that you enjoyed all that Fort Walton Beach has to offer!

A guest from Mansfield, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2013 Everything was great as far as the stay and all of your personnel, however, those in charge need to monitor the fishing on the beach when vacationers are trying to swim. One of my friends was nearly hit in the water when one of the lines was being casted. Also, swimmers could get hooked.
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do advise that people be careful when crossing fisherman on the beach for this very reason. Unfortunately there are no laws in place to stop people from fishing on the beach. The majority do however fish from the pier so the beach does not have too many fisherman. We hope this has not discouraged you from visiting Okaloosa Island again.
Lisa W. from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 Nice condo! Had to buy hangers for the closet. Coffee pot didn't work but called the office and they brought one in an hour. Really wanted a later checkout time since the weather had been so bad but was denied as I assume others were coming in. Overall a good unit though. Loved getting the free golf per day!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. We are happy that you enjoyed yoiur stay and Housekeeping were able to resolve your issues quickly! 10am is the check out time to allow housekeeping to get into the unit and start preparing the unit for the next arrival. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Thank you for taking the time to write this review!
A guest from Ponchatoula, LA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 The dryer had issues it would sometimes work and sometimes not. Thecoffee maker stopped working. The trash chute would get jammed and the trash would not fit. We had to sit our trash next to the chute. This occurred 3 out of 4 days. The unit was smaller than other units we stayed in and not expensive
Property Manager Response: Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc. Thank you for your review! We have called in an appliance repair man and the dryer has been fixed. Also, the coffee maker has been replaced. We have also contacted the company who manages the common areas at the Islander and let them know about the issues with the trash chute. We hope that you were able to enjoy your stay and the beautiful beaches of the Okaloosa Island!
A guest from McDonough, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 Just a few suggestions to make it perfect: (1) Better quality bed linens; (2) Small ceiling fan in Master Bath; (3) Better lighting (light bulbs need to be a higher wattage.)
Judy L. from Concord, NH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2013 We had a great stay at the Islander. The Brooks and Shorey staff as well as the resort staff were very courteous. Thank you!
Jack B. from Murchison, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 You never know what you're really going to get when you rent a condo. You just cross your fingers, read everyone's reviews and take a chance. I am really hard to please when it comes to accomodations away from my home. Cleanliness is top on the list followed by location and amenities. Well, folks I can tell you that Islander Beach Resort Condo #7008 in Fort Walton Beach, Florida is AWESOME!!! It gets 5 stars for all that I just mentioned. There's no way the pictures on the internet can make you realize the breathtaking views from the balcony. "Brooks and Shorey" made the check in and check out very easy. The also suggested things to do and places to eat. By the way High Tide Resturant gets two thumbs up from me and so does Sea Blaster which is a dolphin cruz. We have three children, all girls, 11, 9 and 3 years old and they loved everything about the stay. To Brooks and Shorey, Islander Beach Resort and whoever owns #7008 thanks so much for the memories. Lord willing we WILL BE BACK!

Patrick J. from Lake Saint Louis, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 We booked this condo from the website. Based on the reviews and info, we booked immediately. This unit was very clean and had an amazing view. We really enjoyed the free beach chairs and umbrella that was set up each morning. Many attractions are very close. The revamped Gulfarium, mini-golf, outlet mall in Destin, etc.. Kids loved the beach, pool and the area. We will definitely rent this unit again.

The mop boards and not clean and it seems that the housekeeping is not done very well anymore. We always try to leave it cleaner than we found it. The sofa has spots that were not there last year. All in all we love it but maybe a little more attention to cleaning.
Virginia K. from Hillsboro, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2010 The condo was very nice and decorated beautifully! The view was incredible. We want to go back already. We have already suggested it to friends! The only suggestion we have is that it would be nice for the resort to invest in some umbrellas for the pool area for those who want a break from the salt water. It gets so hot up there and there isn't any shade until evening.
Brian O. from Waukau, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 We had a great stay. The condo was clean and had everything we needed and more.

A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2009 This is the only condo I have stayed at in the Islander and I would recommend it to anyone. It was well decorated and had a wonderful view of the beach from the balcony. There is nothing better than waking up in the morning and seeing the beach right out your back door! The only thing I might do differently is to try and vacation in the off season next time so that the cost isn't as much.

All the amenities to make the trip pleasant and then some!We hope to make unit 7008 an annual visit! You will not be disappointed!
Overall very good - Issue with master bed mattress
Jennifer M. from Sharonville, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2009 The unit was very nicely decorated. TVs and DVD player were all very good. Furniture was very nice. We enjoyed the "one free DVD" rental per day from the Tom Thumb store up the street. The only issue we had with the unit (7008) was the mattress in the master bedroom. It was very hard. Perhaps some people would like it, but we didn't. We were so uncomfortable on it, that we ended-up sleeping on the sleeper sofa for the majority of our stay. This issue alone would cause us to think twice before renting the (otherwise very nice) unit again. We're sharing this comment in case any other renters voice the same concern... Thank You for allowing us to provide our input.
Shawn H. from Kennesaw, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2009 This was a beautiful condo with a breathtaking view, everything was wonderful. The only semi-negative thing is that none of the amenities were available but it seemed to be due to the fact that this was off season.
susan f. from Douglasville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2008 The location/unit we stayed in was excellent. There are a few recommendations. The master bedroom needs a new mattress. It is either very old and worn or a very cheap new one. The exhaust fan in the bathroom off the hall does not work. Several light bulbs were blown. Otherwise, the unit was beautifully decorated and in good shape. Better than most we have stayed in.
elizabeth s. from prattville, alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2008 King size bed may need a new mattress (broken springs on one Side) and the dishwasher needs possible repair. The rest of the stay was wonderful. Condo looked great. WE ENJOYED OURSELVES VERY MUCH.
A guest from Paxton, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2008 Very very nice, comfortable, and clean accomodations. The balcony and beach location were excellent. Great family spot.
Corban E. from Spencer, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2008 Yet another great job and beautiful experience at your resort; I took my family here on vacation and had such a great experience with the place. Now I stay here when I come down on business at Eglin AFB adn Hurlburt Field, and have recomended it to all of my business companions. I know that one of them has been staying here as well and loves the place. Will certainly be staying here for many more months to come.
A guest from Warner Robins, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2007 I was absolutely thrilled with my stay in Ft. Walton Beach and will book there again the next time I have business or a vacation in the area.
Linda S. from Cumming, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2007 We have stayed in different condos @ the Islander for 4 years and were always satisfied. This condo was dirty, kitchen had unclean dishes and utensils in drawers, beds had sandy sheets. When I complained the desk girl handed me a new set of sheets and told me I needed to bring her the dirty ones. They didn't seem to care about the condition of the condo. It looked great in pictures but very shabby in person. My final complaint w/ the Islander is that we mistakenly left a whole large ziploc bag of medicine in the kitchen (stupid us!) We had friends still staying there after we had left and realized our mistake. We called and they went to the front desk to check on the medication. Told them and us too bad, we threw it away. It wasn't more than an hour after we checked out. Our friends even offered to go to the unit and get it and were told too bad. I know, our mistake and stupidity but hundreds of dollars in necessary medicine was thrown away. Never again will we stay at the Islander after this years experience. Too bad, we had really enjoyed previous stays.
