The front door is in need of some white paint, it is rusted in some areas. The galley kitchen is outdated, from the appliances, cabinets, and the poor water pressure from the faucet. The arm of the leather chair in the living room is worn - peeling and showing the mesh of the fabric. Their were no clothes hangers in the small closet to hang clothes. Good thing there was two bathrooms, because the master bath is only big enough for one person. Balcony: there were $2.00 Walmart plastic chairs to sit in. That's why in the picture of the balcony you don't see any balcony furniture ... Cheap and not durable. My husband is 6' 3, and did not even attempt to sit in it. The unit does have a great view of the bay and the ocean!
Our room was clean and well stocked. We loved the balcony view of the ocean. would definitely stay here again.
Overall the property was in great shape and looks to be recently remodeled. Normal amenities were included and we had plenty of towels, dishes, but only three trash bags. All appliances were working at the condo and we had little concern about hot water or AC.
The property building is older, but well lit and seemed to be secure. Some grills were available for public use and a laundry was available on the same floor.
The only issues we found with "The Islander Condos" are as follows:
Elevators are extremely hot and not well ventilated. You will be starving for oxygen by the time you make it to the 7th floor
Luggage carts are scarce to find and are only around when you don't need them.
Make sure your vacation rental includes a clause for an umbrella and chair. If not be prepared to spend 30$ a day for one.
Other than that the rental was great.
This was a birthday vacation for several family members. It was 4 adults and 2 children staying in this room and there was plenty of space. Having 2 bathrooms was great with multiple people. The location was perfect - right on the beach. The balcony had a great view of the ocean and the sound. The kids loved the pool. Everything was very nice. We could have used a few more towels for the length of our stay, but we were able to wash them at the machine just down the hall from us. The furniture on the balcony was not the best and could use updating (plastic lawn chairs), but the view in the morning made up for it. We were very happy with our stay and everything provided. The only thing we were disappointed about was the umbrella and chair provided on the beach. When booking this room, I was told the umbrella and 2 chairs daily came with the room. When we got there we were unable to use them and were told they only came with the room if booking through Resort Quest. We would definitely stay here again.
When we arrived to Islander 707, it felt like home! The living space for our family of 5 was very spacious and comfy! We had the perfect view of the beach from our balcony! I enjoyed waking up to that every morning!
Also, we liked the fact that it was located at the far end of the building, so it was super quiet! The elevator was outside our door, and the wait time was bearly nothing.
The kitchen was nicely equipped with basic cookware, which made it nice to cook breakfast every morning and eat either in the dining area or on the balcony.
There were two full bathrooms, which was very convenient for our family. They were nicely equipped with towels and toiletries to get us started (toilet paper and soap).
The bedroom had a king size bed, which was very comfy. I liked that the room had sliding pocket doors too. Our kids slept on the sofa beds and didn't complain.
The beach was only steps away from our room! I like that the resort had an area for you to wash off the sand before entering your room. We took our own umbrella and chairs because we weren't sure if this particular room included this or not.
The only thing this room didn't have was a washer and dryer. But, there was a set conveniently located on the same floor just around the corner. They were really dated, but worked just as good as my front loader.
As far as restaurants, they were located about 1-2 miles down the road from us. You could easily walk if you wanted, but my family didn't care to do that.
Overall, it was a nice experience! The beach is absolutely amazing! We were able to take some family pics by the beach. I have to say, this area was very family friendly! We hope to come back next summer!!!
My husband and I loved this condo rental. Booking with Real Joy was a breeze and they were always so helpful. The condo was on the far right side of the resort complex, meaning no wait time for the elevator and peace and quite. The whole condo was nice and clean and very spacious. There was plenty of towels and wash clothes to accommodate our stay for 4 nights/5 days. The view from the balcony was beautiful; however, could have been more enjoyable with nicer patio furniture. The beach area and service was wonderful and very polite; never too crowded! Driving was necessary when going out for lunch or dinner, but it's only a short drive into Destin to enjoy all the great restaurants and shopping. If we wanted something quick or needed something from the store, it was just a quick drive over the bridge to Fort Walton. We really enjoyed our stay and would book again with Real Joy!
