Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in, I was absolutely mindblown. The view is breath-taking!!! This was our honeymoon trip and it was perfect for the two of us. I have told my whole family about this condo & the experience - they want to stay there too! I will definitely recommend Island Sands to anyone. Simply amazing.

Great View

  • 4 of 5

The view was wonderful! Condo was nice, soft goods could use an upgrade and couch was worn. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Hey, you didn't mention that everything was spotless, and I have fabulous beds and sheets or my free beach chairs and umbrella... I hope you found all those things to be OK. . I'm sorry you didn't like my sofa, the sun, sand, bronzer, wet bathing suits, feet on my furniture plus the salt air play havoc with the upholstery in my home, but I hope it wont keep you from coming to see us again. Thanks for writing to me.

Has to be one of the top views for this Value. Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing and never thought for this value you would be able to have a great

View and such easy access to the beach. The fact that everyday you are guaranteed to have 2 chair and umbrella sitting out the waiting for you is nice. The spot where the condo is located is less touristy than Destin and public spots. Will be booking this location for years to come.

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo and it was perfect. The balcony and the view is fantastic and watching the dolphins in the early morning and late afternoon was a sight to see. The beach is wonderful, pure white sand. It almost looks like snow like we have back home. We cannot wait to come back again for a longer stay.

Wonderful Beach Location-deceiving description-Poor housekeeping

  • 2 of 5

My family and I just returned from our stay in Destin- I was disappointed in our condo. Right when we walked into the condo my husband and I had to change out 2 burnt out light bulbs in the kitchen. There was sand left over from the last people, everywhere! That night we climbed into bed- Sand all in the sheets! Mind you- we had not been to the beach once yet. I swept the entire place when we first got there- in the pile was large amounts of hair and TOENAIL CLIPPINGS!!!! The first time we used the washer/dryer I just ran a bleach load because of the remnants that was left behind. I had to wipe the entire washing machine out. Lint trap was completely covered in the dryer. The refrigerator glass can barely hold anything. I was concerned it was going to break all week. The tub/shower-where do I begin, the handle to turn it from the shower head to the tub spout was broken, we had to fix it in order for our daughter to take a bath. Which she then proceeded to slip and bust her head because there was no non-slip tub mat to prevent such instances. Had to go purchase one that night. What you have as bath mats(for getting out of the shower) was just disgusting. It had so many stains. The rod that holds the shower curtain is completely rusted. The patio furniture was so rusted and wobbly I wouldn't let my daughter sit at that table. Rust was literally chipping off of it. And the chairs had so many rips in them. All the kitchen-ware was obviously bought from the dollar store. I tried to fry an egg one morning-lets just say it was a joke. We laughed that one off. I understand there is a fear of people stealing things. But it got a little ridiculous. Thank goodness I brought my own kitchen rags and towels. Or else I would have went out and bought some. There was a full size ladder sitting right outside our front door all week long. My 2 year old thought that was a great idea. The entire complex's (outside-stairs,walk ways,etc.) floors has loose nails and boards everywhere. Do Not Walk Barefoot!! I will say that the Beach was fantastic, which lets be honest, that is what we all go to Destin for, right? But I have 2 little ones so we spent more time in our condo then most would. We are and will continue to be Destin vacationers in the future. Just most likely not at Island Sands.

Owner's Response: Where do I begin? Lacking a command of the Kings English is the least of this guest’s problems… Once they enjoyed the week and returned home they decided to attack us on the web in a feeble effort to get a refund, but the antics prior to that are worth reporting, other owners of rental property have been forewarned. When this guest arrived on July 5 the cleaning people were finishing the cleaning of the home, they flew into a rage on the crew, using profane language bringing the housekeeper to tears, This guest attacked the crew members with a barrage of profane and hate filled language. This guest also called and attacked our reservation agent with profanity and demanded a refund because he was ‘forced’ to have contact with a housekeeper. We advised guest was free to leave and a full refund would be issued immediately. Sadly, they chose to stay. We express our deepest sympathy to the owner of the next property they rent and our unbridled elation that they will never be allowed on our property again.
