Amazing Family Vacation
Sandra A. from Morrow, Ohio recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013
First time staying in Ft Walton Beach, had stayed in Destin before. Overall loved the location of this complex. The Unit was in an excellent location in the complex, right at the end of the building. The view was amazing and the pool area was great. The only downfall that I would say with this unit was that there wasnt enough cookware to prepare a family meal. Other than that it was a great place to stay and will stay in this unit again and will recommend it to anyone who is interested in going to Ft Walton Beach. Brooks and Shorey is a great friendly and helpful company to rent from. Any issue that we had which was only a few they took care of it within minutes. Thanks for a great vacation.

Beautiful Location
A guest from Birmingham, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013
Overall the place was very nice. I would stay there again.The view was spectacular! The unit is the last on the hall, so there was never any foot traffic noise. The pool is a nice size and well maintained. As another renter noted, there where not enough pots, pans or serving dishes for a place that sleeps 6-8 (plenty of plates, cups, and silverware). We like to eat in so this was an issue for us.The unit was not as clean as I would have preferred (housekeeping issue), but there were lots of clean towels. The appliances are all in excellent working order and fairly new.The beach was amazing. Loved it.

A guest from port gibson, MS recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012
Overall everything was ok. We did have problems with the bathroom door not unlocking. After a few minutes of trial and error we did manage to open it but decided not to lock it again which left little privacy to the occupant. The garbage disposal did not work at all. There needs to be more pots and pans of the same size as are already in the kitchen.

great location/ beautiful view
A guest from Northfiled, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from the kitchen and balcony was perfect. Getting to the family friendly beach was a breeze. We had great service with clean rooms. I'm glad we went -- even though a tropical storm was on the brew. Thankfully, it missed our area completely. The only negative was that with so many people (8 of us), we had to use the hide-a-bed in the sofa. It was plenty big, but wasn't the most comfortable. That's pretty typical of hide-a-beds though. We put the smaller kids on it. The other beds were plenty cozy.

The unit has all the right upgrades with flat screen TVs and Granite countertops throughout. The neverending ocean front view from the 6th foor is fabulous. Watchinig the sunrise and sunset sitting comfortably in the high end outdoor furniture made it even better. Highly recommend this unit to everyone!!!

Our Stay
A guest from Cabool, MO does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in August, 2011
Brooks and Shorey staff were excellent! Addressed problems as they occurred. The condo we were in was poorly stocked with pots, pans, no strainer, no big bowls. To be advertised to be stocked for 8 guests they definitely need to update their supplies. There was one very small skillet and one slightly larger skillet. There were no big bowls; biggest bowl probably was 3-4 cups. When cooking for 8 people you need bigger containers. There was no stainer, no sharp knives except one extra large bladed one and steak knives. Oven burned your food if you tried to cook on the bottom shelf; once again when cooking for large groups you needed both shelves. Our internet was out; was the modem and/or router from the supplier. (Not Brooks and Shorey's fault). Did not have internet for the first 5 days there. Garbage disposal sounded like it was going to "jump out of the sink." All plug ins were not functional. Tile in the kitchen was scuffed up. No blinds/weather breaker on the patio. Owner definitely needs to invest some money in their place. Of note: Family members had the condo next door and it was very very nicely stocked and in good repair. Would defintely recommend utilizing Brooks and Shorey again! Would not recommend this particular condo though.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
Thank you for your review! Since your review, the kitchen had been re-stocked and the whole building now provides free secured WIFI. Also the owners have updated the condo. Thank you for you input! We appreciate your business and we hope to see you again on the Okaloosa Island. Please remember to ask about our return cutomer discount on your next stay with us!

The Islander
Susan R. from Hartland, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011
We stayed for 7 nights Jul 30-Aug 6. 6012 was a 3 bedroom condo. The beach was wonderful and we enjoyed the 2 chairs and umbrella per day, the free movie and dolphin cruise. The condo was well stocked and issues we had were handled in a timely fashion. The condo was decorated nicely, somewhat dated but still very nice. Plenty of room for our family of 6. The beach was nice to walk on and not tremendously busy, which we wanted. We were always able to find spots around the large pool and hot tub. I would recommend the Islander again and also room 6012.

Family Vacation 2009 - Time to Unwind

Stayed for 4 days in September, 2009
This was my 3rd year visiting the Islander but my first year booking my own condo with my sister and her family. It was just what I expected and even better than her and her family ever expected. The view was awesome from the Islander as always and all the local attractions were as fun as ever. The children loved the beaches all day and the pool in the evening hours. I know we'll definitely be back again next year and probably bring even more family. Thanks for providing an awesome time for our family in the summer of '09.

Islander experience pretty good but not great.
Michael B. from St. Louis, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2009
Condo 6012 was pretty nice. Decorating was attractive and no major functional issues except for a slow drain in the master bedroom bathtub that took 10 minutes to drain after a shower. View of the gulf is spectacular. The bldg. elevators are poorly ventilated and really hot - we used the steps up to the 6th floor quite a lot. I'm not real impressed with Brooks & Shorey office staff and their policies. I always feel like they are talking down to me. Setting check time on Saturday at 4 PM and closing the office at 5 PM makes little sense to me, plus requiring those that arrive after 5 to drive back over to their ofice the next AM or get an additional bill is not good service. This is my 3rd stay at the Islander. We stayed at the El Matador on our last visit. Their grounds and pool are much nicer than the Islanders', but the condos at the Islander are superior.

A guest from Kenner, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009
The Islander was great as usual. Brooks and SHorey however were not. I will not use this agent again. I had previously rented at the Islander with other local agents and was treated much better by them. I had paperwork from Brooks and Shorey confirming an early check in and yet they refused to honor it. The result was us having no place to go for 4 hours after arriving in Fort Walton. I will always recommend the Islander but I did have my GPS stolen out of my car in the parking lot so just exercise care. That was the first time in over 20 yrs of going to Fort Walton that anything like that had happened. So go with the Isalnder just not Brooks and Shorey.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Brooks and Shorey Resorts, Inc.
Our guests are always more than welcome to use the pool area and take advantage of the beach chairs while they wait for the units to be cleaned, in case they arrive before check-in time starts. We also offer free dolphin cruises and a free buffet meal daily, which they can also take advantage of while they wait.
