Island Sands condo description

$NATIVE LOCAL OWNER
Our non-smoking condominium sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico. The two double sliding glass doors leading to the private balcony provide a stunning view of the sugar white beach and the emerald green water unobstructed by surrounding buildings.

The bedroom has a beautiful king size bed, a dresser, two night stands, mirror, television, vcr/dvd, and half bath. The living room is decorated with two queen/full size sofa sleepers providing comfortable sleeping arrangements for four additional people. All floors in the condo,with the exception of the bedroom, are covered with beautiful porcelain tile.

No need to waste your precious time and money running out for fast food breakfasts and lunches. The kitchen is fully equipped to make your stay comfortable and affordable. The unique counter doubles as a dining table giving you a perfect ocean view while you dine.

The 27 unit complex offers a swimming pool complete with lounge chairs, bathrooms, and outdoor showers. The complex is far enough from the main drag to be a truly peaceful experience but is just minutes away from some of the Emerald Coast's most popular restaurants, exciting nightlife, and family attractions.

Enjoy a considerable savings compared to other condos with similar amenities.

Previous Guest Comments:

Condo was beautiful and the view gorgeous. We felt so close to the water.

Our jaws dropped as soon as we opened the door. Because of the openness of the condo we could see all the way to the ocean-it was so beautiful. This condo was so clean and smelled woncerful. A rare find for the price. Thanks for sharing!

You have done so well in decorating your condo-it was very nice yet family friendly. We enjoyed the personal checkin and renting from a true native. Thanks for all the helpful information. Hope to see you next year!!

Our honeymoon was perfect - Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful condo. All of your extras made it very special. We enjoyed watching the dolphins each morning. We hope to be back for many years.

                                We had a wonderful 2 week vacation in this great condo. It was clean and well cared for. Everything was as described in the listing and the owner went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed. We loved the perfect beachside location with the beautiful view from our living area. This was our first trip the area and we were very happy with our condo choice. We liked being able to drive the short distance to Destin and enjoy the shops and restaurants, but then return to Okaloosa Isand and its quieter, less-populated streets and beaches. Perfect for a peaceful, relaxed vacation! We also enjoyed making the short drive to Pensacola to tour the free Navy Aviation Museum - a great experience. If we return to the area for another vacation, we will definately choose to stay in this same condo.

                                My family and I spent a wonderful week relaxing and taking in all the sights. The view was amazing and the kids loved the beach. The Condo was lovely and very clean. We had a great time staying here. Thanks, Cindy for being a great host and adding little extra's to make our stay so comfortable.

                                Cindy met us at the condo and had everything clean and ready to go for us. She had the little extras for us. Detergent, toliet tissue, extra paper towels and even fresh flowers along with a goodie basket for us. She tried to make everything very special for our stay. And she succeded in making our stay the best ever. The view was spectacular and it is a small piece of natures heaven. Thanks Cindy so much for everything, you are a special person to care about your quests and not just the rental part of your condo. Thanks Laura Bowling Green, Ky.

                                Right on the Gulf with excellent view of the beautiful water and white sand. Condo has everything you could possibly need plus lots of little extra touches to make you feel welcome and pampered!! It was so clean and smelled wonderful. We loved it!!!

                                Wow, we are very thankful to have stayed at a great condo on the beach. The view was wonderful and all the extras in the condo made it very comfortable. The owners’ personal touches and friendliness as we checked in was such a blessing. Even the other guests were very friendly. We do hope to be back and thank God for allowing us to go.

                                Cindy, Thanks so much for working with and accomandating us in your condo recently. This was our last summer trip before the kids leave for college. From the restruants you recommended to the kid's first parasail the entire trip was great. Thanks again, Jim and Nola Kyle Germantown, TN

                                My mother and I decided to come down for a girls' week and stayed here June 14-21 and it was beautiful! Cindy, you made everything so easy from our check in to our check out, and all of the little surprise welcome touches were greatly appreciated! The condo is truly "a little piece of paradise"! The moment you walk in, you can look down the hallway and see straight out onto the beach and ocean. So Peaceful! The condo is fully stocked with appliances, dishes, linens - bring your clothes and your food and you are good to go! Beach service was great. Nice big umbrella and chairs already set up for you, and if you go out in the evening after beach service is ended, there are very comfortable beach chairs in the condo that are easy to take down to the beach. We saw dolphins every day and had wonderful weather. Location wise, it's really in a great place. The condo itself is right on the beach, but very close to the Destin Bridge. To get into Destin took less than 10-15 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend staying here. It was my first beach vacation in probably 15 years, and it was wonderful! Thank you Cindy and Mark for letting us stay at Island Sands! Hopefully we'll get to come back next year!

                                We found this condo on VRBO, booked it and stayed for six days at the end of August and over Labor Day. We were so very pleased with everything. The owner's person greeting and orientation to the condo helped make for a great stay. We were able to entertain several friends for dinner. The view is amazing, the beach immaculate and the faility has everything. Thanks so much... Pat, Bob and Matt

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About the owner: Mark is one of the few true Natives of this area and we enjoy sharing a little piece of our paradise with others.

                              Why the Owner Chose Island Sands:
                              After traveling to Hawaii with our children, we realized how truly blessed we were to live in such a wonderful part of the country and purchased our beach home with its breathtaking view of sugar white sand and emerald green water. We live nearby and always enjoy meeting our guests.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                              We have enjoyed renting our place for the last 10 years and have tried to provide all the comforts of home along with the stunning view.
