"Vacation Getaway
This is a great room with great living space. The unit was on the 7th floor so amazing views of the Gulf of Mexico each and everyday. Lots of space to sit on the patio and enjoy the scenery. Inside the accommodations are also great, its everything you need to relax and enjoy the time at the beach. The rental company was great to work with as well, they have an app and provide lots of communication. "
Oct 26, 2018 - Trenton C L., Oak Creek, WI



"Great Vacation
My husband and I stayed in Islander 7008 for a week in September. The condo was very nice, super comfortable living room furniture, comfortable bed in the master bedroom, and the condo was nice and clean. We enjoyed the big balcony and comfortable rocking chairs. We loved having the free beach service and my husband enjoyed the free golf amenity provided by Brooks and Shorey. First time dealing with Brooks and Shorey, didn't have to "check in", just got a call telling us our condo was ready and received the lock code. Convenient and easy. We really like the Fort Walton Beach area and would stay in this unit again. We enjoyed pizza and German food at Fokker's Pub, and great steamed shrimp at Brotula's in Destin. "

"View of Heaven
Had a wonderful stay. We have stayed in this unit before and it is our favorite!"
Oct 05, 2018 - Jennifer A., Franklin, TN



"August Condo Rental
The booking process was easy. All of the info needed was available through Brooks and Shorey's app, which is great. I've rented condos through Brooks and Shorey for several years and will continue to do so in the future. "

"Great beach, great complex, good unit
First the good: Brooks & Shorey are a fantastic company to work with. The communication was fantastic, the staff considerate and professional. The beach at the Islander is great but the pool is a little small. The complex was clean and well maintained and overall the unit was nice. The living room furniture looked new and was very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. Now the not so good (which most will find nitpicky but it's my review): found hair on the bathroom floor and sink when we checked in. Not a big deal but not a great first impression. The bed in the master bedroom has a lot of 'nesting' from use and wasn't comfortable. My husband and I both woke up with backaches every morning. There was no remote for the smart TV in the living room so we couldn't use our Netflix account as there was no way to get to the TV menu. The steak knives and baking sheet were rusty. The countertops have permanent stains. Over the years we've stayed at some really outstanding places and some not so much. With all that being said this unit still ranks among the top. This was our second time to rent through Brooks & Shorey and I won't hesitate to rent through them again. "

"Beautiful condo in a great location
This was our first visit to this area, we will definitely be back. The condo and property are very well maintained. The location is awesome. We saw several dolphins and manta rays during our stay. The beach and water are unbelievable. The sand is like powder and the water is crystal clear. Can't wait to come back. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!"

"Fall Beach Vacation 2017
We were very happy with our stay. The unit was very clean. Loved the balcony!! The view was absolutely amazing from the seventh floor. Other than hurricane Nate causing power outage & wifi outage, our vacation met all our expectations. Loved the recliners for watching TV. We didn't use the pool.... but it was very nice... we enjoyed Beach time with the provided Beach chairs and umbrella. This was our first trip to the panhandle area and we plan on returning. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed."
Oct 16, 2017 - Charles P., Westfield Center, Ohio



"Great condo; great location
The condo was spotless and loved all the outdoor space and furniture. View was spectacular. Location was perfect. Can’t beat Okaloosa Island!"
Oct 09, 2017 - Debra A., Franklin, TN



"Islander 7008
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. "
Oct 04, 2017 - , Joplin, MO



"Great location and excellent service
From the very start, this was a great experience. Brooks and Shorey was the rental agent and did a great job of communicating with us before, during and after the stay. The building was nice with a great pool and beautiful grounds. The unit we rented was in great condition and it was a wonderful vacation."
Sep 19, 2017 - Rob B., Simpsonville, SC



"Redneck Riviera
Had a wonderfull time!! Third time we have booked with Brooks and Shorey. They always exceed our expectations! Can't wait to come back."
Aug 20, 2017 - Michael C., Peoria, Arizona



"Beautiful beach view!
Islander 7008 was neat, spacious, and provides a gorgeous view of the beach! The condo is equipped with everything you need to make you feel at home. This location is only minutes away from restaurants and grocery (and convenient) stores."

"Great Vacation
I've been coming to the Islander for more than 20 years. Had a wonderful time. Can't wait until next year"
May 26, 2017 - Linda S., Baldwin, GA



"Islander 7008
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."
Sep 13, 2016 - Lisa C., Cary, IL



"Wish I had chose a different room.
I didn't have a great experience with the room I stayed in. Had to call maintenance two times, the first two days. "
Sep 04, 2016 - , Amelia, OH



"Wonderful stay
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. "
Aug 03, 2016 - Vonda S., Richmond, KY



"Family Vacation
Our experience was extraordinary. I had 2 units and other family members were there as well. Everything was perfect for us. "
Jul 29, 2016 - Melissa T.



"Peace and quiet
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."
Feb 23, 2016 - Kathleen L., Brodhead, WI



"Good Vacation Spot
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."
Oct 21, 2015 - Brenda V., Clinton, TN



"Good Gulf View
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."
Sep 25, 2015 - Stephen J., Pike Road, AL



"Nice stay
Some essential supplies missing. Beach chairs to be replaced! Otherwise vey enjoyable stay!"
Sep 07, 2015 - , Alpharetta, GA



"Amazing View, Terrible Beds
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..."

"Excellent Vacation Condo
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. "
Aug 11, 2015 - , Pineville, LA



"Awesome unit!!
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. "
Jun 20, 2015 - , Glasgow, Kentucky



"Enjoy
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."
Jun 02, 2015 - , dandridge, TN - Tennessee



"Stay in Fort Walton
No complaints. Clean, which is the most important. "
Apr 22, 2015 - , Mcdonough, GA



"Little aggravating things
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.

"My Happy Place
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!! :)"
Oct 24, 2014 - , Tompkinsville, Kentucky



"Awesome Stay
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"

"Family Vacation
The location was great, the condo had very nice furnishings, plenty of parking. Great for a family of four. If you like Fort Walton, this is a good location."

"Best location
This was the second time staying at the islander beach resort. The first time staying in this unit . The location is breathtaking . This unit was tastefully decorated and clean we had a wonderful time and will defintely stay again!!!"

"A Great Time Was Had By All!!!
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."

"Nice condo!
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!! "
Sep 30, 2013 - Lisa W., Huntsville, AL



"not worth the price
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"

"really needs updated!!!!
i rented 2 & mine really needed updated bad!!!! the other 1 was up dated. mine didnt even have a stero are raido, old tv in living room, furniture in livingroom really old!!!and i was told that shops & stores was within walking distance yous were way of on that. for the price i think i could have got better condo. so i will not stay their agian. i will go through my travel agent next time. she tried to tell me that but i use her for going out of the country all the time. i thought that staying in the usa that i would be safe booking myself. boy i was dead wrong on that never agian!!!!

"Great GetAway!!
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.)"

"The Bragg's Florida Vacation
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!"

We love Fort Walton Beach and OUR little island. We got married here 4 years ago and this is our return place every year. Your staff is friend and your properties well maintained. We loved 7008 and plan to return to this unit next June 24, 2013"

"Great Condo, Great Vacation
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. We have rented in Gulf Shores and Navarre Beach the last 10 years. This is the best unit and location. Very happy. Thank you for a great vacation!"

"ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!
Our stay was wonderful. The unit was very comfortable and decorated nicely. It really gave us the feeling that we were getting to spend the week in luxury! The price was great too! Will definitely return if we get the opportunity!"

"May 2012
This is a beautifully decorated unit. One of the best I've stayed in. The only drawback is the master bedroom does not have a gulf view which I prefer."

"Loved It
Loved the view! This was our second time at The Islander. This building has a nice pool and a short walk to the beach. We will be back!"

"What a great week!
Our family of 6 stayed for the week and LOVED it! Location is fantastic ... close enough to Destin but quiet and not nearly as busy. Beach is absolutely beautiful and far end is so remote it is like your personal beach. Condo is well kept and updated. Would come back again in a second. "

"Total Relaxation!
Absolutely wonderful condo! This was my second stay in this condo & I still love it. You can tell the condo owners definately take pride in the condo just by the decor and condition they
keep the condo. It has the million dollar view so many people look for and I'm certain I will be staying in this condo again."

"Great relaxing time!
We had a very relaxing time. The condo @ The Islander was awesome, very clean, up to day & felt just like home. The view was awesome! Thanks to Brooks & Shorey the experience went very smoothly & will do it again next year. Family oriented & will definitely
bring the kids & grandkids next time. Thanks for a wonderful vacation."

"FIRST FLORIDA VACATION - OUR CONDO WAS VERY NICE AND CLEAN. MY ONLY COMPLAINT WOULD BE HAVING TO RACE DOWN TO THE BEACH EVERYDAY TO CLAIM A UMBRELLA AND 2 CHAIRS. OVERALL GOOD EXPERIENCE.

"The Islander is Great
This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Islander. We really like it. The view cannot be beat!! The location is great, the room was clean with everything you needed. The only thing we would improve on is the couch and the bed. Not that they were terrible, but could have been better. We will definitely come again!"

"An excellent property and unit!
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."

"Awesome view from 7008!
I couldn't keep my eyes off the beautiful blue sea with emarald shoreline. It was breathtaking to me. I just wish the weather had been warmer. Great resturants in the area also. Good getaway place."

"Home Away from Home
The master bedroom mattresses could use upgrading. Also, A wall mounted hair dryer would be nice. Overall, GREAT!!! The coffee we left in the freezer will last a while for the next renters."

"This was my 3rd consecutive vacation at the Islander and I look forward to many more!
The only thing I would change would be the addition of lids to the grills for better quality cooking. "

"
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."

"
We hope to make this stay a yearly family tradition. Brooks and Shorey was very organized and helpful. The unit was beautiful and very clean. The amenities, especially the chairs was a nice savings. We will definately be back next year and plan on renting through Brooks and Shorey! "

"Beautiful beach location & nicely updated unit!
This was our first trip to the Ft.Walton/Destin beach area. We had seen this unit's pictures online and felt like it would be nice. We were NOT disappointed! Everything was smooth from the beginning, including booking with Brooks Shorey propery mgmt. The unit looks out at the gorgeous ocean. Top floor. Nice decor inside. LCD tvs' in each room. Cable. 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
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. "

"Pre-Marriage Trip
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."
