Beautiful Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, father and step-mother stayed 7 days at this lovely condo and we had the most amazing time! I have a 2yr old daughter with special needs and was worried about having everything for her. With this home I had nothing to worry about, she loved it and was very comfortable. We had everything we needed right there. Having easy access to the beach made it easy for us to go back and forth when we needed to feed her. I definitely recommend this home to everyone I talk to and I will be back next year! Thank you so much for helping us make memories with our precious baby girl!

Truly feels like "a home away from home"!

  • 5 of 5

This is our favourite 2 bed/2 bath accommodation! The cleanliness, comfortable furnishings and recent tile and ensuite bathroom renos are accented by a carefully chosen palette of soft colours and well chosen accessories. The pools are extremely clean and inviting! The owner is courteous and responds to the renter's inquiries in a pleasant and timely manner. The evening sunsets and occasional fireworks displays were spectacular from our vantage point on the spacious balcony. Watching the boats leaving the jetties in the morning often signaled to us we were in store for a beautiful day! Seasonally, the complimentary beach service is a value added touch. Having thoroughly enjoyed several vacations here already, we are already looking forward to returning next year!

All good things to say about this unit

  • 5 of 5

We love the Islander properties and this unit was right up to par. Clean, well equipped for a family . This is a nice quiet part of the beach which we like. Suggest you visit the harbor town for great dinner options and it's fun to just stroll the boardwalk. Jim, the owner was very nice to work with and gave quick responses to our emails. We will consider for future visits.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful. Very clean and plenty room for 4. Very easy access to the beach. Owner Jim was really nice and helpful, he replied email to answer all my questions every day and answered my call when we needed him. The restaurant "The Back Porch" was wonderful, we went every night... Also the sunset cruis was fun!

The Islander - Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This fully equipped 3rd floor unit was exactly as advertised and made for a perfect and affordable family vacation.

We’ve stayed at several other properties where the condo was decorated with all the curio shop beach paraphernalia, not this unit – it looked more like a spa or resort, professionally and tastefully decorated. Rest assured all the necessities and accessories you could ever envision needing are provided for, even down to a linen/towel service every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, so leave those big beach towels at home.

The Condo Owner’s Association and management staff need to be commended for the activities they provide the condo guests. This is definitely a family/kid friendly property that we will be looking to return to (as do some many other guests that you meet while staying.) Don’t forget to take advantage of the discounts ‘The Islander VIP’ card offers – strongly recommend the Destin Pirate Ship cruise on Thursday evenings where you also enjoy the weekly fireworks show – kids loved it!!

A special thanks to Jim for the restaurant recommendations and Helen the family activity coordinator at The Islander..
