The Islander condo description

RESORT AND DESTIN AREA DESCRIPTION

Our condo, Unit 612 at The Islander, is located on Holiday Isle, one of the most sought after vacation destinations. At The Islander, you can relax and take in the gorgeous views of the emerald green waters and sugar white beaches, and then enjoy a swim and fun on the beach. The Islander is perfectly located near Destin Harbor, where you have access to and can enjoy a sunset dolphin cruise, fishing, snorkeling, parasailing, and wave runner and paddleboard rentals. You can visit the best restaurants on The Emerald Coast with top rated cuisine. Enjoy live entertainment and fun for the kids. Golfing and great shopping are, of course, a highlight of the Destin area. The Islander (“The New Islander”) was renovated and our beaches refurbished in the Fall/Winter of 2010, enhancing our beautiful resort and location.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We are from Cincinnati, Ohio and have been coming to the Destin/Fort Walton/Niceville/Panama City areas since the early 1990s. We especially liked the Destin area and specifically Holiday Isle because of the beautiful beaches and great family atmosphere. In 1994, we bought our condo at “The Islander” so we could enjoy, at our convenience, these great aspects of the area and offer them to relatives, friends and hopefully you.

                  Why the Owner Chose The Islander:
                  “The Islander,” a beach front condo resort on Holiday Isle in Destin, is all about location, location, location and reasonable prices! What more would you want if you like a beach vacation with many resort amenities and want to be close to entertainment, great restaurants, fishing, boating, water sports and fun for all ages? As described in the advertisement narrative, our condo on the 6th floor of the West building compliments these amenities and activities very nicely, and we have recently upgraded the Unit in many ways. While we aren’t on the first floor that has immediate walk out access at ground level, the distance to the resort amenities and the beach is no different than any other unit once the elevators or steps are taken to the lobby.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  What we do have are views from our balcony that are very special. There are day time views of our pool and gazebo and a lake/wildlife preserve; and views of the gulf, beach, and boats coming from and going to Destin Harbor via the East Pass. Our night time view is that of a sunset over the gulf 365 days a year and the twinkling lights of Fort Walton Beach. Before you rent at The Islander, if that is what you chose to do, what we would like you to do is to look at the day and night views from the higher-floor units in the East building and compare them to ours in the West building. Note there is no lake/wildlife preserve or views of the East Pass, beautiful sunsets and the night lights of Fort Walton Beach. We will concede there is a view of our larger pool and a wider view of the beach and gulf, but what do you see at sunset or at night (note there are no night time photos shown for the East building units). As you can tell we are really proud of our condo and its location; thus the reason for our purchase. Of course, please check with the reservation staff at The Islander for their input and information about the pros and cons of all the units. We would like to have you stay with us but too want you to be comfortable with any unit at The Islander. We are looking forward to your stay with us and if you have any questions , please call.
