About Cristina Gonzalez

We are long term residents of Florida, and have had the fortune of calling the Destin-Okaloosa Island area home since 2001. My husband and I, along with our three children (and now grand child), have fully enjoyed the Island Sands condo, and have many fond and fun memories of our stays.

We are happy to share our little piece of beach heaven, so you can have some beach fun and be amazed by the beautiful sunsets.

Cristina Gonzalez purchased this condo in 2002

Why Cristina Gonzalez chose Florida Main North West

We had vacationed in Destin and Okaloosa Island since the early 1980's, and when we got the opportunity to move to the area, it was a dream come true. Having a place on the beach was high on our priority list. Shortly after arriving in the area, we met the Island Sands co-developer, a retired Air Force Colonel and F4 pilot. When he offered to sell us his unit, we jumped at it. Although we have never lived in Island Sands full time, we have spent lots of quality time there,, and we have always enjoyed updating and decorating it to make it a relaxing retreat.

What makes this condo unique

Island Sand is a cozy 27 unit condominium located in the heart of Okaloosa Island. It is right on the beachfront, and one of its main benefits is the uncrowded beach.

Our unit, is located on the third floor, and being a corner unit, offers unparalleled beach views. The unit was fully remodeled in 2014; it is comfortable and well equipped.

Great location & responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

The location of this condo was great. Really close to the beach, but on a quieter stretch away from heavy traffic. The owner was always quick to respond to any questions we had and very accommodating. A couple things to know...there wasn't a hairdryer so I was glad I brought my own. The umbrellas & chairs available on the beach are very expensive to rent ($30/day) and are not included with this unit. However, there was an umbrella in the unit that we used & it worked fine. The outlets in the bathrooms didn't seem to work, which made getting ready tricky. The kitchen supplies (i.e. pans, cooking tools, etc.) are cheap & pretty worn. Otherwise, the unit was very clean and quite comfortable. Overall, a good value for the price.

Loved the corner condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went for our 25th wedding anniversary. Loved the corner condo as it allowed two views of the gulf. The bed was very comfy and den was very open with kitchen. The patio furniture needs updated, although I did like the high chairs for the view. Also, there is no elevator for third floor. Not a problem for us and stairs centrally located but could be for some people.

Love having reserved parking right at the stairs. Lots of beach front. Never felt crowded. We will definitely be back. So much better than those huge condo complexes.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for the first time and we must say that the pictures are just what the unit looked like. The view was excellent and the beach service was good an usual. Mary and I have stayed at Island Sands 4 different times and all have been what we have expected. There were more people on the beach than in the past . Looks like secret is out. Unit 301 was comfortable and spacious and had everything we needed for two senior people. Caroline Smith was professional and responsive.

We ate at our normal places but found Mimo's Italian for the best meal we had on this trip.

We loved this condo! It added so much to our wonderful vacation! It was beautiful and so comfortable. We felt right at home. The view was amazing. We had to make our teenage son spend more than an hour a day at the beach because he wanted to just hang out and relax in the condo. He loved it! It's great for couples or families with kids (We have 2 children). It was very clean and beautifully decorated. Also Caroline was very nice to work with. Which we greatly appreciated! We would definitely stay here again!
