"GREAT PLACE
Loved the stay at the Islander. Great view from our room that was clean and comfortable. Room was ready when promised and had plenty of towels and dishes were clean and ready to use. "
Aug 12, 2019 - Donald S., Haslet, TX



"Great room. Even better view!
Very nice room. The view is amazing. It was the perfect size for me. I will be booking this room again!"
Jul 03, 2019 - Kelly W., Birmingham, AL



"Early week getaway
The unit was exactly as pictured. Very much liked being on the end of the building away from the pool area (not that we noticed it being loud). The only dislikes would be that the kitchenette sink is almost too small and the mini fridge freezer had trouble freezing ice cubes. The bed was comfortable, the decor was nice, and there were some things provided that aren't always provided in these type of rental properties, like paper towels, t.p., coffee filters, dishwashing soap. We found a couple of restaurants that were less touristy and very good - Sealand Restaurant (check the dress code) and Fokker's Pub (had excellent pizza)."

"Great one room condo with a great view on the water.
We were very satisfied with our stay! Clean room."
Jun 22, 2019 - , Ridgway, IL



"Beautiful view!
The staff was very friendly ! The amenities were clean and the overall experience was very relaxing!"

"Home away from home
It was a great stay with a great view. "
Jun 02, 2019 - Nicholas S., Wheelersburg, OH



"Just what we needed
Long weekend beach trip and this place was great for us. Unit looked exactly as it does in the picture, and was perfect size for just the two of us. Everything was clean and location was great too"
May 23, 2019 - Zachary H., Senatobia, MS



"Wonderful Stay!
Great place and location. Condo was super clean and smelled great upon arriving. We can't wait to return."
Apr 30, 2019 - , Fitzgerald, GA



"Softball vacation
This was an awesome oceanfront studio condo to rent. The only issues I had were the small appliances needed updating. The "hotplate" did not work and unfortunately, I noticed roaches on occasion. I am sure this has been addressed before upcoming guests visit."
Apr 21, 2019 - , Louisville, KY



"Stay @ Islander #304
We were mostly satisfied. We would like to have known that the building was under construction. Pounding and drilling noises were common, which made it impossible to rest during the day. Also, we did not appreciate the maid asking us if we were done at 9, when I was carrying things to the car. She said she needed to defrost the freezer. Also, the construction crew was using the carts when we needed them-loaded with tools."
Mar 21, 2019 - , Cleveland, OH



"Mold on ceiling
The room would have been nice except for the obvious mold on the ceiling. I am highly allergic to pollens and molds and it made me very uncomfortable. The room would have been fine if this issue had been addressed. Nobody likes to look up and see black mold????"
Nov 04, 2018 - Robin M., Warrior, AL



"Long weekend stay
Great long weekend getaway on beautiful Okaloosa Island. The water was gorgeous."
Sep 18, 2018 - Cindy B., Calvert City, KY



"Great rental property.
It was everything I expected. The view from the balcony was fantastic. The location was great. We really enjoyed our stay."
Sep 07, 2018 - James M., Tulsa, OK



"2018
We have been going through brooks & shorey for several years and have also sent others to you. We orginally booked for the 19- 24th. I added the 18th and asked for a better rate and it was said that I had the best one they could give. We are very disappointed that we did not get a better rate aftr all these years of loyalty. So we will not be booking through brooks and shorey again. The air conditioner in this unit is horribly loud"
Aug 27, 2018 - Sheri R., Harvest, AL



"Perfection on the beach
I love this is perfect for 3-4 night stay. The size is great, the deck is supplied with a great table and chairs, and the bed is great. The bathroom was stocked with towels/washcloths/hand towels. It is in a great location to everything....This is my second stay in this condo and I was not disappointed either time. I recommend this to any couple who wanted to hang out a few days and enjoy the beach and each other. "
Aug 17, 2018 - Tracey L., Idabek, OK



"Great room with an Awesome View.
Studio with kitchenette, bed and small living area. Me and husband took our small daughter. it was perfect. Room was great. View was amazing. Beach was wonderful, and loved the pool. Checking in and out on phone app was so convenient. Bed was very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. "
May 26, 2018 - KELLEY G., HOHENWALD, TN



"Awesome Stay!
We had a wonderful time. We were able to see Dolphin from our balcony everyday at 10 a.m. The free chairs and umbrellas were wonderful along with the discount tickets. The only thing I would recommend for this is a screen door for the slider and maybe a little more beachy look. "
May 16, 2018 - , Cold Spring, Ky



"Wade tornado trip
We had an awesome time. Hated to leave. The accommodations were outstanding. Everyone was very nice and the ladies at Brooks and Shorey Resorts were very helpful and made the trip effortless. They kept us informed throughout the entire process. We will probably rent the unit again in the future. The downside to the trip is that we had a tornado come close to the condo unit while we there at Ft. Walton Beach but it we were fine and it all turned out fine. :o)"

"Islander
disappointed in the quality and amenities. seemed overpriced for this facility"
Feb 16, 2018 - , Awendaw, SC



"A lot of extras for not a lot of money!
I absolutely loved our stay at Islander #304 and will be back year after year from now on. The efficiency style condo was spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated and very clean. Easy access to the beach and a gorgeous balcony view to sit and sip coffee from in the morning watching dolphins swim by. The free beach chairs and umbrellas were great also! I had been paying twice as much for half the room for the past several years so this was a nice change. I say enough great things about our stay here like the friendly staff at the resort, the beautiful huge pool BBQ grills and washer and dryers close by. It's also close to the pier and several restaurants and fun attractions and the Harborwalk village just a few mins away. I highly recommend you can't go wrong staying here!!!"
Oct 24, 2017 - , Trussville, AL



"Great location, room not in great shape
I loved the location of the place! Who wouldn't want to wake up to the sound of the waves? However, the only thing that made it no so great, was the condition of the bedding. It was old but clean( we still decided to use only the sheets). I think bedding needs to be renewed often. Room had an old kinda smell that was not so appealing when you walked in the room(we had to buy air freshener which made it better). The glass door was not clear as shown on the pictures, it had a white stain from the bottom to half of the door. To make it a 5 star I believe the room needs better cleaning and bedding.

"Okaloosa Island
Great beach and location. Check in and check out simple and quick. A/C worked fine, but was very noisy. Room could use some updates in furnishings and appearance. "
Aug 31, 2017 - , Booneville, MS



"AMAZING anniversary trip!
It was just my husband and I. It was more than enough space for us AND it's right on the beach. What more could you ask for? :)"
Aug 13, 2017 - April W., Byhalia, MS



"Mini-Vacation
Love the Islander resort location, staff, etc. The beach service was also a plus. Our room was smaller than it appeared in pictures, but with only staying 4 nights, it was fine. Travelers will want to depend on an ice chest to keep beverages cold, etc... mini-fridge didn't cool well."
Aug 02, 2017 - Tina H., Conway, AR



"Islanders 304
We have used Brooks and Shorey several times and find them easy to work with. Unit 304 is small since it's a studio. The kitchen area could use some attention as far as utensils and glasses.The balcony view is great. Having a table on the balcony would be nice. Overall stay was good. Maybe a new bedspread that's not so heavy and could be washed regularly would be an improvement. Also the A/C thermostat should be updated. Okaloosa Island is our favorite vacation destination."
Jun 19, 2017 - Teresa H., Rudy, AR



"Weekend getaway
Fantastic view, right on the beach! Just enough space."
Apr 05, 2017 - Laura A., Gallatin, TN



"Enjoyable Week
This was a great stay for us. WE had everything we needed in this studio setting. Great view of the ocean."
Feb 22, 2017 - , Ward, AR



"Overpriced efficiency
The rental was way over priced for the amount of space. I have rented a 4 bedroom property before with another rental company that was worth every penny spent. I did not feel the same here. The space needs to be better laid out and updated. "
Feb 08, 2017 - Nicolette C., Hamilton, OH



"Arthur vacation stay in Fort Walton Fl.
Awesome"
Oct 21, 2016 - Michael A., Lynchburg, VA



"Solo Retreat
I came for some R&R and I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 days. The condo was really nice and the beach view was extra ordinary. I watched dolphins swim by each morning--beautiful. Couldn't have asked for better weather!"
Oct 20, 2016 - , Murfreesboro, TN



"October beach trip
This was a spur of the moment beach trip and we expected just to take what we could get. We were very surprised to find the condo in a good spot, in clean condition, and with a few bonus surprises. We plan on visiting in October again in the future!"
Oct 20, 2016 - , Cullman, AL



"Labor Day Stay
We enjoyed our stay there in Ft. Walton Beach over Labor Day weekend. It a great time to visit. Not too crowded. "
Sep 11, 2016 - Kimberly M., Greenwood, IN



"Wonderful Vacation
My husband and I just returned from a week at this resort. We had a wonderful time! The Condo was clean and in very nice condition. "
Aug 28, 2016 - Trisa M., Pocahontas, AR



"Islander 304
We enjoyed the pool and beach -- relaxing time and beautiful views. Only complaint was the refrigerator in our room -- couldn't put a bag of ice in it and the 2 little ice trays took at least a day to freeze."
Jul 29, 2016 - , Metairie, LA



"Beautiful condo for 2
Loved the condo,recommend for only 2 as it is was very beautiful and my wife and myself had a AWESOME honeymoon."
Jul 13, 2016 - Marvin F., Lewisport, KY



"Efficiency
I have stayed in this room a couple of times now but feel the decor needs to be updated. It needs to update coffee maker and would upgrade the door from a key lock to a pad lock, wold have been more convenient. Also would be nice if there was an ice machine provided for guest! Loved the view from the balcony! Also the gentleman who rented the chairs and umbrella was very nice and very courteous. Always pleasant!"
Jul 06, 2016 - , Pinckneyville, IL



"We'll Be Back!
This is the 2nd year to stay at The Islander. We love the Islander Beach Resort. We were looking for a quiet place to get away and this was a fit for us. The convenience to the beach is really nice. The temperatures and humidity were perfect as it always is in the spring. The only complaint was in order to use the DVD player we had to unplug the cable box. Maybe install a power strip? Not a game breaker though. We love sleeping with the sliding door open so we can listen to the waves. The amenities are great also! We'll return again next year! Thanks Brooks & Shorey! "
May 16, 2016 - Eddie K., Tyronza, AR



"May weekend getaway
Beautiful view! Great location! Doors to unit are very hard to open and close. Bathroom door did not close. Perfect size for two!"
May 16, 2016 - , Crestview, FL



"Florida Vacation
The picture of the room looks great. When we arrived we found the floor was not clean, a blanket from the closet was stained and dirty, the bed spread needed to be cleaned. The wall socket on the east wall only one outlet worked. The cooling system we were told by Brooks and Shorey Resorts, was controlled by the Islander. We could not set the temp. at all. We found out that we could have stayed in a bigger room for 1 month cheaper than our 10 days thru Brooks and Shorey Resorts. We should have booked thru the Islander for better rates. Lesson learned. "
Mar 25, 2016 - , Jefferson City, MO



"Nice room but.....
The room was very nice and fit our needs perfectly. The only problem was our room was right by the trash chute so every time we was coming or going we had to hold our noses due to the smell. The only other problem we had was the ac cooling efficiently. Got pretty uncomfortable a few nights but we managed. Other than those 2 issues we had a great stay. "

"Fort Walton Heaven
The condo and location was fantastic. Never stayed so close to the beach.
Only issue was there were no bars or resturants within walking distance.
Great short break really relaxing."
Oct 24, 2015 - Mark R., Wootton Bassett, ENG



"Great room near the ocean!!
Our rental was small but perfect for the two of us. The view was incredible! We enjoyed several local restaurants which served great seafood. Great trip!!"
Aug 04, 2015 - Kim P., Aubrey, TX



"Efficiency but very clean
the room was exactly as pictured. everything worked well. we could not figure out how to make the shower work and there was a maintenance guy there within 15-20 min to show us. we were very pleased with the room and Brooks and Shorey"
Jul 27, 2015 - Teri C., Broken Arrow, OK



"Fantastic; want to come back!!
The room was amazing. The bed was comfy; there were plenty of blankets and sheets/pillows. The sleeper sofa was a nice touch; the little kitchen too. Room was very clean! The bathroom door wouldn't close all the way but we didn't care. The room was a little hot so I suggest bringing a fan or leaving the balcony door open. The view was spectacular! The beach was clean and not crowded. Cannot wait to go back next year!! "
Jun 16, 2015 - Michael W., Cabot, AR



"Lets Do It Again!
Needed a convenient location with a view. It fit the bill perfectly. Would recommend they work on bathroom door. It would not close completely."

"Great location/ Nice condo
Perfect location and very nice furnishings. Clean and quiet end unit."

"fort Walton beach vacation
Room 304 was beautiful. Very clearn , awesome view of water. Great deco in room. BUT there were no clothes hangers??? I didn't get that. The staff was wonderful. When I go to the beach I go with B/ S they're always on top of things..AAA. ALWAYS GREAT. "
Apr 25, 2015 - Jane C., Kellyton, AL



"Beautiful view
We had a wonderful time on vacation in the condo over spring break. It is set up like a hotel room which was just fine for us and our 2 children. The balcony provides beautiful views of the beach and ocean- we even saw Dolphins one of the day's jumping in the ocean! Overall it was a great experience!"
Apr 06, 2015 - Robert H., Janesville, WI



"Winter Break Getaway
The office did not tell us how to find our condo. When we got to the 3rd fl all the rooms had a four digit room number on the door. Our key only had three. I ran into another guest who told me how to get to our room.Then we were told by another guest that we had to go to the office to get a parking permit or our car would be towed.We were expecting a one bedroom condo but our "room" was nothing like we were expecting. We thought we could cook but we only had a microwave and a tiny frig. The room was ok but not what we were expecting. We have stayed through Brooks and Shorey numerous times and this was our least favorite experience especially with the office staff."
Mar 13, 2015 - Linda G., Summerville, GA



"Wonderful escape!
We love the location and the property. The staff at Brooks and Shorey were extremely friendly and helpful."
Feb 22, 2015 - , Sunset, Louisiana



"Wonderful, relaxing time!
I have been looking for a quiet, peaceful place on the beach to relax and destress from everyday troubles. And I have found it in the condos at the Islander. The condo was in excellent condition, all I had to do was unpack and spend time at the beach, which is what I had planned to do. The office personnel were wonderful and helpful in giving suggestions. I have already booked my next relax time at the beach in December. Thank you!!!"

"Anniversary Trip
We were satisfied with our accommodations. The condo fit our needs for this vacation. We would likely use Brooks and Shorey again."

"Beach Getaway
loved the location, room was clean was too small. location on the beach was awesome, loved the view, seen dolphins every day"
Aug 06, 2014 - Charlie and Sharon E., Iva, SC



"This property is adequate but nothing more. We were disappointed
We were disappointed in the appearance of this property online vs. the reality. It is about the size of a hotel room. The king bed dominates the room and arrangement of the room is poor with the bed blocking the use of the "efficiency" kitchen. I would not recommend. One chair to use at the small table, no table on the terrace and an ac that was inadequate."
Jul 22, 2014 - Beverly L., Charlotte, NC



"Not as pretty as the picture
I booked this unit because the reviews and pictures seemed to be good and a clean condo. But when I arrived i found many things wrong with the unit. I have never booked a condo before now so i wasn't sure what to expect as far as how they handled issues like a dirty room or even how to go about getting fresh towels. i stayed for 7 days. there were 2 people and we had 2 sets of sheets and 4 towels. random kitchen items and a small fridge. the unit was 304 located on the far left end of the building. a crossed the hall was the trash chute so when leaving or arriving we had to smell trash and deal with flies. the unit is in need of a few cosmetic repairs like the tub was rusty and the wallpaper was peeling off of the walls especially next to the toilet which was dirty and smelled like urine on and around. the curtains to the patio were stained and dirty.the floors hadn't been cleaned either. I will never stay in this unit nor would i consider this place ever again"
Jul 22, 2014 - Amy J., Burlington, KY



"Vacation July 2014
Our vacation was wonderful, but the condo was a little disappointing. I would definitely not recommend more than 2 people, as the condo is pretty small. The condo wasn't cleaned very well either. Their was trash left in a bag under chair and floors did not seem clean at all. The view from the balcony was very nice. I would give this condo 3 out of 5 stars."

"Disappointing
Love the resort but not the room. The room was dirty and needs work. "

"Great vacation!
Everything was wonderful!"
May 28, 2014 - , Athens, AL



"A GREAT get-away
Anytime on the beach deserves 5 stars, right? While this property shows its age it is well maintained. The efficiency unit fit our needs perfectly. It was tastefully decorated, clean and had an amazing view. The beach atmosphere was family friendly. The location was close to all attractions and great restaurants. Will be back again."
Apr 30, 2014 - , Bono, Ar



"Enjoyed our weekend getaway!
The studio apartment was just the right size for 2 people, I wouldn't suggest more than two staying there as it isn't very big. The view from the room was perfect. Next time we will probably get a room that is a little bigger just to have a little more space but overall it was a very good experience. "
Apr 16, 2014 - , Covington, La



"great trip even though weather was rainy
Great location. Beautiful beach even though it rained most of the trip. Only problem we ran into was that we were told the umbrella and two chairs would be included in the cost of the trip but when we got to the beach the gentleman could not find our name on the list and told us if would be $22 to rent. "

"not good
the a/c didn't work most of the time and the curtains on the window were very dirty. The condo furniture was very musty smelling. would not stay in the same condo again. loved the location, just not the condo."

"Quiet and Relaxing
Over All I enjoyed our stay. This was a quiet and relaxing environment. Exactly what I needed. I could enjoy the ocean from the balcony or while on the beach. Perfect for a couple to get away for a short vacation. "

"Great location for a relaxing couple
We needed a small place on the beach. Our room was right on the beach and a way from the main hallway. The room was nice, the only compliants were the air unit is old and it either blows cold air right on you or you just have a stuffy room. I think a fan would fix this. On the balcony there is only one chair and a tiny table, we would of loved to have been able to sit out and had meals. The restaurants and entertainment are a short drive or long walk. This location was ideal for a lazy beach weekend. We loved our stay and plan to go back as soon as possible. "

"Too small
The king bed is too big for such a small place makes getting into the fridge difficult..needs new shower head and wallpaper in shower isnt attached at the bottom at all..We were very thankful that the staff worked with us the first few days because the a/c was out in the entire building and they found us another condo to stay in until this unit was fixed..however we were not told of this problem until after we were given the rental agreement and it was signed..then we were told the a/c was out..this was poor business practice and then we were told trying to get fans for everyone..WE had to insist on having another unit and again very thankful that one was found but I feel it should have already been worked out for everyone in that building to have another place to stay. Find it hard to believe that it would be expected of people in Florida in the summer to pay to stay in a place with no a/c BUT even with this I would give Brooks and Shorey another chance and book with them again"

"Check unit out with B/S in detail before renting a unit
My wife and I enjoy sitting on the balcony in the mornings and afternoons but the unit we rented didn't have but one chair. That was a bummer for this trip. The unit was in need of repair also. We have booked with B/S on many occasions in the past and most units have been much better than this one."

Nice!"

"A Wonderful Vacation
This is our 2nd year in a row that we have stayed in this particular condo. We enjoyed our experience so much the first year that we wanted to stay again in the same one again. Beautiful condo with a perfect view of the ocean. We highly recommend using Brooks and Shorey Resorts for your next stay. "

"Islander visit
Great experience. Our only issue is that the air conditioning was not working properly. It took a long time to come on. Other than that it was a great stay."

"Spring break vacation
I enjoyed everything about my stay. The room and location were excellent and there was so much to do and so many sites to see. I will definitely stay here again and after seeing my pictures I posted on Facebook, I have had several people inquire about the resort and I recommended it to them hands down. "

"R&R
Company personel were nice and helpful with a couple of question that I had. Nice location and the wiew of the gulf and beach was also very nice. About the only thing that they could do is update the(AC/Heater) controller."

"PERFECT Getaway Location - Watched Dolphins play from our balcony
We spent the weekend at Ft Walton Beach IBR unit 304. Could not have picked a more perfect spot. The view was priceless. The beach location was perfect for our "Barefoot Wedding" Ceremony. Will definitely return to this property."

"Islander
The freezer in the mini fridge looked like it had never been defrosted. We weren't able to use it all. Also, the glass doors going out to the patio were extremely dirty. Had to open the doors to be able to see out of them."

"Islander 304 July 2012
This was my second visit & my wifes first visit to the area, so knowing what I wish I could have done the first time, I knew what I wanted my next visit. Brooks & Shorey Resorts fit the bill perfectly! Our room was very nice, clean, and affordable. Our veiw was outstanding! We didn't use the grills available on the property, but the steaks other guest were grilling was a reminder of what we'd do next time! There will definately be a next time & it will be with Brooks & Shorey Resorts! "

"Our Perfect Beach Vacation!!!
We absolutely loved our summer vacation at Ft. Walton Beach, FL. The condo that we rented for the week was beautiful. The decor was very nice, the bed slept wonderful and the ocean view from our balcony was priceless. The staff was very friendly and easy to work with. We will be booking our next summer vacation again through Brooks & Shorey. "

"One of the Worst Places I Have Ever Stayed!
When we arrived the condo still needed to be cleaned. The bad thing about this was no one had stayed in it the night before. When I asked the lady said sometimes they don't all get cleaned the same day people check out. When we arrived there was dirt and sand all over the floor so I swept before we brought our luggage in. There was a big ball of hair in the bathroom floor, the tub had sand in it and there was a very hairy bar of soap on the edge of the tub. I tried to call the Brooks and Shorey offices but no one answered. I cleaned it all up myself so we could shower. We unpackked some food we brought and left to go to the store to get some other things and when we returned there were ants all over the kitchen area, so we went back to the store and bought bug spray and cleaning supplies. Not exactly my idea of a vacation! The dishes, silverware, glasses etc were all mismatched and looked very dirty. Luckily we had brought paper plates, cups, plastic utensils, paper towels, etc from home because I would not want to use these. Overall it was a very disappointing experience. I expected it to be a nice clean place to spend a week at the beach but was very disappointed. I would not reccomend this place to anyone. "

"My thoughts
I enjoyed my trip to Fort Walton and plan to go next year. I was very disappointed with the room I had. I understood it was a studio but the pictures online made it look nice and roomy enough for four people. The AC didn't work well. They had instructions
not to put the ac lower than 75 (which is hot)but there were no way to know what degree it was set on because the the theromastat was broke. Cleaniness was ok but there were ants in bathroom and the pillow and pillowcase in the closet smelled dirty. Overall
I was dissatisfied with the room."

"Islander beach 304
My wife and I had a warm welcome, room was astefully decoreated, bed could have been smaller and sofa as it was difficult to use the kitchen area, the fridge door is on the wrong way round, we saw the bathroom door needed fixing and it was done very quickly, overall we enjoyed our stay, and our using this company again in June, thank you"

"Very Old
The unit we stayed in was very old. Had to call the office about milddew around tub and on bottom wall at the sink. Bathroon door doesn't close properly, you can see the outside under the entrance door of unit. Rust stains on one of the chairs. Bed slept
pretty good. Wish we had stayed somewhere else. Complained to office and they sent housekeeping over. She was able to get most of the milddew off; however, this should have already been cleaned. And no, they took nothing off the stay."

"Dream Vacation
My mom and I rented this condo for our girls getaway in June 2011. The location of this condo could not have been better! It is very close to many attractions in the area. Our balcony overlooked the beach and the Gulf, which was absolutely breathtaking. It was the perfect scenery to wake up to every morning. The condo itself was very clean and had great furnishings. It felt very luxurious even for an efficiency unit. I would recommend this unit to anyone and cannot wait until we go stay there again!"

The bathroom door was hard to close. Also, the dustpan was laying on top of an extra pillow in the closet with dirt on it. Other than this, everything was good. The view was great and the pool was nice."
Jul 01, 2010 - Erick W., Ashville, AL



"Great stay!
The condo was just as advertised. Very clean and convenient to the beach. Booking was incredibly easy and the pricing was cheaper than local hotels. We were very pleased with our stay and definitely plan to rent again."

"we've stayed at Islander for over 10 yrs, this condo was fine except horribly old tv
we love to stay at the Islander & have tried over the years many different Condos. This one was decorated fine but really needs to update the TV. We had to call maintainance to show us how to get the DVD to work, their was no hookup on TV due to age & had to be wired thru the old tape player. "

Everything was great, they even had a movie on a large projection screen by the pool for the kids. There was only one downfall about this place, the elevator takes forever!"
