About the property

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

UPDATES: 2016--REMODELED Kitchen and Baths, new carpet throughout, and all new bedroom furniture! New Sleeper Sofa (with Sealy Posterpedic mattress) and Love Seat in 2014! New Balcony Windows and Door in 2013! New pillow-top mattress sets in 2012. New tile and air conditioning in 2011.

Welcome to our brightly decorated beachfront condo! Smart, open layout puts both the dining room and the living room adjacent to the 28' wide balcony--giving you a commanding view of the beach and the pool area! Also features in-unit washer and dryer and hi-speed, wireless internet.

So, what makes our condo UNIQUE? How about a big-screen LCD TV (46') with 100+ HD channels and various side inputs (HDMI, USB, etc) for easy access to game consoles and digital photo viewing. LCD TV's (32') in both bedrooms, too! Then there's the hi-speed internet access that is both wireless and secure (ok, maybe that's not so unique anymore). Add to that a KEYLESS entry system--no more rationing of the keys!

Rates include Beach Chairs and a number of other amenities.

Come see for yourself!

Note 1: Minimum 3 night stay. Minimum 4 night stay during the summer & spring break periods (except to fill shorter gaps).

Note 2: The person making the reservation must be 25 years of age or older and must occupy the condo the entire term of the reservation.

Note 3: Sorry, we do not rent long term in the winter. (We have relatives who like to visit then!)

Note 4: I speak German (err....Deutsch, that is).

About The Owner

We live in the local area so we are able to give our condo all the attention it needs. We can also give you timely and accurate information on the local area.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2001

Why The Owner chose Fort Walton Beach

I retired from the Air Force after 20 years flying helicopters (Hurlburt Field). We liked the local area so we decided to stay. We have some family members who like to visit in the off season, so a condo on the beach was an obvious choice!

What makes this condo unique

The Islander Beach Resort is the perfect location if you want to avoid the typical summer crowds on the beach but still want to access some of that 'touristy' activity on your own terms.

Great condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo the last week in October. It was just as advertised-a beautiful condo with all the amenities overlooking a beautiful beach. The condo was equipped with everything you could think of! The beach was clean and not crowded at all. The daily chair and umbrella set up was so nice!! We would definitely return!!!

Beautiful condo and resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. The Islander is far enough down the coast that it is a little quieter and less commercialized than staying in Destin. We enjoyed the more relaxed setting. Still, there was a Publix and a Tom Thumb very close for any food/drink/grocery needs. You don't realize how nice the keypad entry is on the door of the unit until you don't have to worry about keeping track of a key every time you go to the beach. The unit is very conveniently located near the elevator, but there was no noise. We took advantage of the included beach chairs and umbrella every day. We could enjoy the view and sounds from the balcony 24/7!! We even got to see some dolphins! We loved the size of the pool, how clean the pool deck was kept by the staff, and how many chairs were provided on the pool deck. The pool and deck never seemed overly crowded and there were always chairs available even though we were there during the "peak" season. Another big plus was that the pool is on the beach side of the condo, so we didn't have to look at a bunch of cars while we swam. We were there over the 4th of July holiday, so we went down to the water that evening and could literally watch three fireworks displays in three different directions at the same time. The unit itself is well-furnished with all the kitchen utensils and linens we needed. Both king-sized beds were very comfortable. TV's were wall-mounted in the bedrooms, which was nice. The tile floor was also beautiful. There were even a couple of boogie boards and noodles left in the storage room, which our children took full advantage of. The only negative of the whole trip was there was a lot of June grass in the water this time of year, but that isn't the fault of the owner or the condo. We simply had to walk up or down the beach a short distance until we found a "clean" spot. From talking to some of the locals, the June grass seems to be a bit heavier in 2014. The white sand of the beach is still breath-taking and our overall experience was wonderful. We will definitely stay in Unit 5006 again when we return to Okaloosa Island.

Owner's Response: Wow--thanks for a great, thorough review!! (We definitely need to stay there more ourselves!) We also find that keypad entry to be such an important asset. Glad you had such a great time and that the fireworks displays literally came through with "flying colors". We hope to have the opportunity to host you again!!

Love Okaloosa

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in a good location to the beach and elevator. Excellent when lugging kids and beach toys. Had all necessary kitchen equipment for cooking meals in the condo. Everything was in good working condition.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place, right on the beach on Okaloosa Island. Close to shopping and dining, with about a 15 minute ride to much busier Destin. Pictures were accurate. Very clean, fresh paint and tastefully decorated. Comfortable for four adults, the sofa sleeper would probably be best if a fifth or sixth were children. The electronic access was convenient, after using a key to get in the first time. Everything that was supposed to be there was. View of the ocean was beautiful. The surf was low and smooth most days. Pleasant temperature for late October, both air and water. Beach was not crowded at all. Having the two chairs and umbrella included was a big bonus. Dolphins swam by daily at varying times. They occasionally would play and jump out of the water. Fighter jets of some type and C-130 cargo planes flew by sporadically due to close proximity to Eglin Air Force Base and Naval Air Station Pensacola, but offered more of a "Wow, neat!" factor than "Ugh, not again, they're so loud!" Rental process was easy. The owner was prompt at returning emails and phone calls. Definitely would stay here again.
