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 Fort Walton Beach

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 place to stay in a great area. Only complaint is that the shower could use a new showerhead.

Little Piece of Heaven

  • 4 of 5

Not our first trip to the area but definitely our favorite room! Spacious to be a one bedroom unit and the absence of an elevator is hardly noticed when you factor in the uncrowded beach. We hope to be back to Island Sands 301 soon.
