Car: Recommended

The Islander Resort is a rare place for you to either 'relax and get away from it all' - or enjoy yourself to the max! To protect the integrity of this 1st-class property - all rentors must be 25 years old.

Our courteous 24-hour Front Desk staff is much like a hotel, so great service comes with your 2-bedroom 'Condo-Hotel', whether you need access to one of the many Islander recreational items, or free Concierge-type ideas for what's in the area,

It truly says something special when you speak to the many guests of The Islander Report who have been returning year-after-year ... and we're proud of the quality of the campus after our recent $3 million dollar renovation.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We fell in love with Destin but truly never dreamed that we might come to enjoy this place on the Gulf of Mexico - where you can see and hear the waves from the balcony, while also enjoying the best that the area has to offer. So, we've found Condo 514 at The Islander Resort - Please come to 'Be Our Guest!'

Why the Owner Chose Destin, FL, USA:
Where else will you find a 24X7 'Condo-Tel' Front Desk for Spring, Summer & Fall easy check-in, check-out, and fast help for concierge-type free info and free beach and sport items to check out? A quality Front Desk is truly rare. We initially came to Destin because of the unique sugar-sand beaches. Every year they just keep looking better ... and the leadership on Destin's Holiday Isle makes sure the beaches are restored quickly as needed after the strong winds blow! You'll love our new 600,000 cubic yards of sand fresh in 2013 and looking great!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
About 50 steps from our private pool to the private beach thru your Private Gate to the beach - and the summer 'VIP Program' provides your 2 beach chairs and very large umbrella each day. Unbelievable sunsets from the beach or your private 5th floor balcony. Enjoy your coffee or even the special Espresso/Cappuccino on the balcony ... we look for the morning birds in a concentrated area - and shortly after we can see our long-term 'neighborhood' dolphins during breakfast, lunch or dinner. There's always something to see as you relax on balcony - with all the Harbor's best professional ships and private boats in their non-stop coming and going ... as well as parasailing boats and sunset cruises.
