Vacation Rental Reviews by


Review by Sally S.
I saw the reviews were positive, and this did not disappoint. The unit itself was very clean, bed was comfortable, well stocked kitchen, and very pleased overall. The front desk staff were very helpful and we were able to use their computer to print up our flight boarding passes. The extra beach chairs were helpful too. If there was any down side, it was the fact that the beach was very crowded and small.

Family Trip

Review by Jessica H.
We loved everything! The condo was clean and great for my 4 and 6 year old. We loved the view from our balcony - the sunsets were great and we got to see fireworks display taking place at the harbor without having to leave the property. I emailed the owner prior to booking with questions about location to the beach - it was as close as they described! I would highly recommend this property to family and friends - we want to come back! We went to the harbor, a bunch of restaurants Landsharks was a favorite - pizza/bar - great to bring the kids to. The pirate ship cruise is a must if you have kids! Mine loved it! I would return here every year if I could! I did have an issue with one front desk employee - I didn't catch her name but each time I dealt with her she had the attitude of "I'm only here because they pay me" not very helpful, more like one word answers - she just didn't seem like the most cheerful or helpful. I dealt with her on three occasions over a few days, so it wasn't like she was just having a bad day, more like a bad week. The rest of the staff was great! Helpful, giving suggestions on things to do, restaurant recommendations, etc...Checking in and out were a breeze - they were very busy when we arrived but were quick to notice me and greet me. Overall a great experience!

Review by Kyle M.
This Condo is in a great location. Close to grocery and restaurants and just steps from the beach. The 5th floor balcony provides incredible sunset views. Condo is equipped with everything you need and is very comfortable. Check/In was easy easy as was Check out. We will most definitely be back.

Manager Response:
You did have a great week here. And to know your teens enjoyed it as well is HUGE. We all know they are not always the easiest to please (we were there once, weren't we). We are open year round and would love to have you all return.

Outstanding resort.

Review by David C.
There isn’t one single thing that wasn’t met for our needs. Including the comfort of our stay in unit 514. The staff was fabulous. The grounds were very well melted and manicured. Having beach service was definitely a great amenity. Linen exchange and 6 beach towels was wonderful. The two pool on location were spotless. The front desk employees were so friendly and helpful. Can not say enough great things about The Islander. Not to mention how easy the owners of the condo were to work with. I can’t forget to mention the breathtaking view we had from our balcony. We are anxious to return. We would definitely recommend The Islander to our family and friends.

Review by
I really liked the placement of the condo - did see some of the Gulf but also the Sunsets, condo was well equipped.The only thing I was not happy with is the couch/loveseat was very uncomfortable with no ends to the couch and how low the furniture was to the ground. Loved the pool and all the BBQ stuff. Really surprised they did not have gas pits but ok

Good experience but flooring and furniture need to go

Review by Jennifer A.
The view was beautiful, the amenities at The Islander were very convenient...we loved the easy beach access and umbrella/chairs set up. It was close to everything. However, if you have children this condo isn't for you. The floors are concrete and we were constantly worrying about our one and three year old falling...all of the furniture was modern and low to the ground which my one year was constantly climbing on. It also echoes and with squeals and laughs it made for a very noisy room. The furniture was uncomfortable and when my one year fell we would have to worry because of the concrete flooring. We did not like the furnishings, decor, and flooring but overall, had a good experience here. The kitchen was great, owners were very easy to work with, and we got a great deal on renting it for a week. Honestly, we would not stay here again due to the flooring and furnishings unless they were changed. If you don’t mind them, then it would be a great place to stay.

Manager Response:
Thank you for your feedback. Since you were an owner referral we feel like you must have seen the interior of the condo before you arrived. We apologize that condo was not kid friendly, perhaps next time you can choose a more conventional condo. We would love the opportunity to earn back your business. Please feel free to contact us on you next visit to Destin!

Too modern

Review by
the furniture was very modern and the floors were concrete. the sofa, beds and chairs were very low to the floor. I would not recommend this for older adults as it was hard to get up and start moving!

Manager Response:
Thank you so much! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay with us here at the Islander. We do apologize for the inconvenience, perhaps on your next booking you can request a room with higher sitting furniture and beds. We hope when you travel to Destin, you’ll let us know when you’re coming and we can reserve your favorite condo!

Early February Break

Review by
The view, beds, appliances were all excellent. The furniture was all modern; flat, low, no arm rests, kitchen chairs were hard plastic -- VERY uncomfortable. Couldn't sit in the living room for more than 30 minutes at a time. Brought the patio chairs in to sit in part of the time. Heated pool and hot tub were great.
