About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come relax on the gorgeous beaches of Florida's Gulf Coast. Book our condo 3009 for 2018 and WE PAY your Florida sales tax! (Valid on arrivals after 3/15/18, INCLUDING holidays. We discount your stay 11% from published rates to compensate for FL sales tax.)

Okaloosa Island (a few miles from Destin) is a beach community with no 'skyscrapers' to box you in. Enjoy our white beaches without the big crowds from tall condos.

You'll also enjoy one of the largest beach-side pools on the island, and appreciate the elevator lobby right off the parking area, providing easy access for arrival and departure.

Our third-floor unit includes a sleeper sofa in the living room and features a recently updated 49-inch LG flat screen, plus wireless internet. The living and dining areas stretch the width of the condo, offering a panoramic ocean view.

A private master bath with double vanity adjoins the master bedroom, furnished with a king mattress set with foam topper. The second bedroom--with a Simmons Beautyrest queen mattress--is next to a second full bath. Both bedrooms have a flat panel TV and DVD player.

The guest/kid's bedroom now has a 32" HD LED TV with multiple HDMI inputs, perfect for video game connections! And the swivel mount allows easy access for quick hookups.

Also, our condo now participates in ResortQuest's "Truly Comfortable & Clean" bedding program, so all bedspreads are professionally laundered after EACH guest stay. You can read more about it here:

On-site property management ensures a trouble-free stay with no rental surprises. Simply call the front desk with your concerns (only on-site managed units, like ours, give you this convenience). They also can make arrangements for a discounted round of golf at a number of nearby clubs. At no additional cost, you'll enjoy the use of two beach chairs with umbrella during your stay (in season) and FREE DVD 'rentals' from a kiosk in the elevator lobby!

Ready to reserve your stay now? Send me an e-mail with your requested dates and we'll respond quickly with a full estimate that includes your discounted rate!

(Please Note: Existing reservations, special Wyndham discounts and monthly or wholesale reservations are excluded from the sales tax discount. Discounts can not be combined with other offers. 3-night min. stay.) Thank you!

About Ed Williams

Islander Beach Condo #3009 is owned by two sisters with their husbands. We all share a love for the beach and ocean, and we want your stay to be comfortable and memorable. If you see things that need attention (the carpets, for example, are always a challenge to keep nice), please let us know. Thanks!

Ed Williams purchased this condo in 2001

Why Ed Williams chose Fort Walton Beach

We came to the Gulf Coast on family vacations for years, but had never been on Okaloosa Island near Fort Walton Beach until looking for property in the Destin area. We all immediately fell in love with this lovely, uncluttered, low-key strip of sandy paradise.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to the gorgeous beach and ocean views, the key benefit to Okaloosa Island remains its low-density construction with a maximum 7-story height on all condos. This gives you the opportunity to enjoy a beach that never feels crowded, nor does the condo pool get too congested for your kids to enjoy.

My wife and stayed with another couple. The condo was perfect! Two large bedrooms and bathrooms. The whole condo was much bigger than we expected, and very clean. Our patio onlver looked the Gulf and was beautiful, we ate breakfast there every morning, and spent every evening watching the sunset from there. The property managers were very courteous and helpful. I would definitely recommend this condo and Mr. Williams, he was great! Thanks and we will be back!!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is really kept up nice which is a tall order for a larger place like the Islander. Your unit is well designed with the sleeping quarters at the entrance and we really enjoyed the great oversized balcony. The view was perfect. The pool was huge and very clean. We also enjoyed the complementary beach chairs and umbrella. In the past I have always been too cheap to pay for such luxury. It made sitting on the beach a whole new experience. Overall, I feel your unit and property is a tremendous value in comparison to the costs of all the competition you have on the beautiful gulf coast of Florida and Alabama.

Anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at the Islander. We loved it! The condo was clean & spacious. Everyone was very nice and helpful. We had everything we needed in the kitchen but when we wanted to go out there were several great restaurants. It was great having your umbrella & chair set up too! We will defiantly go back!
