"I've been coming to The Islander since I was a kid with my parents. I cant ever remember a bad trip or a bad experience. Maybe, that's why we keep coming back. When we got older my parents would take me and my brother and friends sometimes twice a year. About 3 years ago, my mom went into septic shock and since then has had multiple surgeries and many health problems and is unable to come with us anymore. This year, though I am 25, which means I am finally legal to rent the condo out myself. Therefore, I've invited my brother and a couple of our mutual friends and we will be there in a week! I've had so many great experiences at the islander that I feel I can rate it a thumbs up. I always recommend The Islander to other friends and co-workers that are thinking of going to Destin."
