About the property

Nice Beachfront Condo! Amazing Gulf views from the living room! New Owners

Thank you for visiting our condo online! We are new owners of this condo as of August 2017. We have recently redecorated and updated, and we absolutely love our condo! We hope that you will too!

Located on Okaloosa Island, this third level unit is on the top floor of a quiet complex that sits directly on the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. As a smaller condominium complex with 27 units, the beach is much less crowded. This beautiful beach is our backyard! The unobstructed view of the sparkling emerald waters and the beach from our living room and balcony is spectacular! The brilliant colors of the sunrise and sunsets are captivating. The moonlit nights also display their own glistening beauty across the waters. The spacious living room with two sliding glass doors that open to the balcony overlooking the beach includes a nice comfortable queen size sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped with many extras for those choosing to eat in, and the dining area seats four. There is a washer/dryer in the unit for your convenience. The bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed and a private half bath. There is also another full bath off of the hall. We have nice linens and towels, and our housekeeping service will have our non smoking condo clean and prepared especially for you! We have a reserved parking place for our guest, as well as self check in/keyless entry for your convenience. There is also an outdoor pool with bathrooms, lounge chairs, a grilling area, and picnic tables. The beach service we provide for our guest includes 2 chairs and 1 umbrella, set up daily from Mar 1 through Oct 31. We have two beach chairs in the bedroom closet for our guest as well. Kayak/paddle board rentals are also available during this time. Please remember to bring your own beach towels!

Beach life fun is all around us! Okaloosa Island has everything you need for a relaxing fun filled vacation. Dolphin shows at the Gulfarium, a walk on the boardwalk, or fishing off the pier are five minutes away. Golf, mini golf, water sports, parasailing, jet ski rental, dolphin cruises, etc., are all close by. Outlet shops at Silver Sands are just a short drive, and antique shops in downtown Fort Walton are there for leisure shopping. We are away from the traffic and crowds of busy Destin, but only 6 miles from all the activity Destin has to offer as well. Many delicious local seafood and steak restaurants are available. Visit emeraldcoastfl .com for more information on upcoming events, beach fun activities, restaurants, etc., in the area.

Whether you are looking for a family vacation, romantic getaway with your spouse, or time alone, the location of this ocean front condo will offer many wonderful memories!!

Here are some recent comments from our guestbook -

"Thanks for the beautiful place! We loved it!" Guest - Nov 22-26,17

"My husband and I come to Ft. Walton beach every fall. This is now our third unit to stay in at Island Sands, and it is by far our favorite! Your condo is so beautiful and comfortable. The decor is perfect!! The bed was so amazingly comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed as well. We had a perfect view of the sunset from our balcony. The seating on the balcony was very nice too. Thank you for sharing it with us! We will be back for sure!" Guest - Oct 16-22,17

"We absolutely love your place on the beach! The beach is so close and the condo is great. The decor was so beautiful! We felt at home while here. This was our honeymoon and no better place to start our lives together. Thank you for sharing your place. We look forward to returning." Guest - Oct 8-12,17

"We loved your little piece of heaven! Had an awesome time and are taking back some great memories. Thanks for making our first trip to Ft. Walton so special! We could have stayed on your gorgeous balcony and view of the beach for a lot longer than a week! Very tastefully decorated and so comfortable! We will be back! Thanks again! God Bless!"

About Victor and Valerie Logan

We have really enjoyed vacationing here on Okaloosa Island for the past 6 years and are excited to now call it our home away from home! The captivating view from the condo living room and balcony is exceptional! Island Sands is a smaller condominium complex, so the beach is much less crowded. We love the island that offers so much for us to enjoy without a constant battle of heavy beach traffic. It truly is a perfect location!

We will be here often to enjoy and will keep the decor and conveniences updated. We know your time is precious and we want you to have a wonderful experience during your stay. We welcome you and yours to come and visit our special place! SO much beauty to behold on the Gulf Coast!!

We were very impressed, it was very clean and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

Just about everything we needed was provided including coffee, extra towels, even peppermint patties! You can tell the condo was recently renovated. Great paint colors, nice furnishings, very comfortable bed! The “free” beach service with chairs and an umbrella was a nice touch! A very short walk over the sand dune to the beach was great! The complex was clean and quiet. Overall “we loved our stay”. The owners were easy to deal with and they texted us to welcome us upon arrival and when we left they thanked us and wished us a safe trip home.

That'll Do Condo, That'll Do!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice. My girlfriend and I just got back from a great vacation at this place and we loved every second of it. The condo sits right on the dunes and the view is perfect from the 3rd floor. Val was great! She was very attentive to our needs and was only a phone call away. She also provided us great insight of the area for great restaurants (The Back Porch) and shopping. We couldn't have picked a better spot or host. The only thing we would change is more time and more sun screen! We will definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you both loved our special place and had such a wonderful time! The condo seemed to fit exactly what you were looking for in beach vacation time and that is our hope for our guests. Nothing like the beach and good food. It’s easy being hospitable to guests who are grateful Ryan, thank you so much! We look forward to having you stay with us again!

An AMAZING hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during our kid's spring break and the beauty of this location is that we did not have the high "SB" traffic. You have your own little private, white sandy beach area all to yourself. This is definitely a family friendly spot.

Mr. & Mrs. Logan have done an amazing job updating this condo. They have chosen beautiful colors that makes it feel “right at home” and provide plenty of modern appliances. The views are amazing and the amenities that include the umbrella service are very nice. They are also extremely nice people and although we never met personally, the ongoing interactions that they had with us before and after our trip was a really nice personal touch and made us feel welcomed. Excellent customer service!!! We will be back and I highly recommend IS308!!!

Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Logan for sharing your AMAZING gem.

Wonderful property.

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year staying at Island Sands. We have stayed in three different units but this unit is our favorite. The view is stunning and the unit has everything we need, plus it is decorated beautifully.
