About Kim Lang

Hello there,

We are the Eilers from New Orleans who found this lovely little section of Fort Walton Beach over ten years ago. After renting several different units summer after summer here at the Island Sands, we finally decided to take the plunge and purchase one for ourselves. The entire month of May was spent renovating our little beach escape from top to bottom and now we couldn't be happier to open our doors and share it with others. If you decide to stay with us, we hope you have a fantastic vacation filled with lots of sunshine, laughter and most important, those unforgettable memories that keep you coming back season after season.

All the best,

Brian & Amy

Why Kim Lang chose Florida Main North West

We love taking our family to Okaloosa Island over and over throughout the year since it's extremely peaceful and reminds us of beaches you would probably find in the 1950s. Super clean sand and sparkling water similar to those found in the Caribbean without the hassle of needing a passport!

What makes this condo unique

Island Sands is located at the end of the island, so there are no crowds and the marine life is spectacular. Most mornings you will see dolphins just off the coast from the balcony and in the evenings you will feel like you're in your own private paradise. It truly is a phenomenal place to visit!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We like to be a little ways away from the hubbub when we go on vacation. If you don't mind driving in a bit to go out to dinner and entertainment then this is a great location. With a quiet family friendly beach with beach service, a fully stocked condo with a small number of neighbors this condo has it all to make your vacation perfect. We have stayed here twice 10 years apart and have been nothing but happy with it. We highly recommend it!

Beautiful condo with a wonderful beach view

  • 3 of 5

This condo had been remodeled in 2011 and had great design features. Very pretty!! We found we had most items we needed and we loved being able to keep up with our laundry which prevented all of the loads of laundry that are necessary after vacation. After 6 years, a few items need to be replaced, including the sleep sofa and the mattress in the master bedroom. Non-stick cookware needed to be replaced. I don't use non-stick after it starts to peel. Specific kitchen tools designed to be used with non-stick cookware would be a good choice next time they are replaced. The sofa bed was not usable and this was resolved after the first night by providing us with a blow up bed. Thanks so much!

We loved our view from the balcony and were very grateful since the beach was not as expected from the pics. The water was dirty, possibly due to previous weather and there were slugs which made my beach experience less than perfect. We drove back down to Destin, where our last beach time occurred and found the beaches were beautiful and void of the slugs and vegetation.

The pool was beautiful and refreshing, even though the location of the trash (dumpster) made it less than desirable - pretty stinky!

We were grateful for the non-smoking room, but having a smoking room under us made us feel uneasy in addition to having to smell their smoke rise up to the balcony while we were sitting there.

Previous reviews led us to believe the electric outlets and safety features in the tub had been resolved. Unfortunately, they were not. We had to locate plugs in other areas of the condo in order to use the hair dryer, water pic, etc because so many of the plugs were loose.

Overall, we had a decent time. The view was beautiful and management was responsive to our immediate concerns.

Owner's Response: "The owner arrived directly after this visit and addressed all of the issues immediately. New commercial grade sleeper sofa has been ordered, frame in master bedroom needed tightened, outlets were tripped and are now functioning properly, new kitchen items have been purchased and beach conditions have improved now that Hurricane Harvey has stopped churning the Gulf of Mexico. Terribly sorry for any inconvenience this caused you during your stay. Continuing to keep unit 303 in top shape is a high priority of ours and we will happily continue to upgrade items as needed. Views here are truly amazing and we're glad you enjoyed them as well."

We had a great vacation staying in this beautiful condo. Unfortunately, it rained 6/7 days, but we still enjoyed ourselves, and the view from the double doors out to the beach was stunning! We are so happy to have spent our vacation in a quaint and quiet complex!!!❤️

Cute and quiet

  • 4 of 5

I would have given the stay 5 stars but the only thing that wasn't ideal was that there was no elevator. We stayed on the 3rd floor and at the time I was 8 months pregnant. Other than that everything was great. The view was amazing and we loved that we had beach service so no need to tote around an umbrella or chairs. The condo was equipped with everything we needed for the stay and was very comfortable. Great value!

Great ocean front condo! The unit is decorated nicely. Comfortable living

  • 5 of 5

The unit is stocked with everything you need. Suggestions: Put the larger tv from bedroom into living area, have a broom and dust pan in the unit, repair or replace the squeaky boxspring/bedframe, and repair the leak in the half bath (toilet)

Our stay at unit 303

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Only a few negative comments;

* There should be a safety grab bar in the tub area for older people getting in and out of the tub.

*The stool by the small desk should be fixed or replaced. It is very wobbly and about to break.

*The refrigerator need to be leveled. The door wants to close rapidly when it is open. If you stop it from closing then items like milk jugs in the door come falling out and the shelf gets broken.

Other than that our stay was very enjoyable.
