Such a great location and very clean condo 5 star in my eyes I been a lot of places on vacation no more high rises for me. I felt like home, very relaxing. I will be back to this condo. You will not be disappointed with this condo like heaven to me and my wife beaches r prettier than Panama City and gulf shores. The condo and location on first floor just get out of your car walk in and open slider and go to beach no elevators or long walks to and from car no crowded beaches. Owners where very quick to respond on any questions you might have

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful. The size of the building made the beach less crowded than the high rise buildings we have stayed at in the past. The condo was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The pool was clean and not crowded. A lounge chair was always available. I would definitely stay here again.

So impressed last year, we returned and are already booked for next year. A perfect couples getaway.

  • 5 of 5

A smaller well kept complex without the crowd and noise of your larger resorts or high rises. Very clean and very comfortable. The most quiet and peaceful condo we have stayed in over our years coming to the Destin area. You are literally steps from the beach. Would most definitely recommend for a couples getaway.

Owner's Response: Hi Leslie! We are so glad you both enjoyed your stay on the Island and that you will be coming back again! We LOVE seeing the small and quaint blue roof building that is "Island Sands" , it gives us a big relaxing smile when we see it on our way driving down the boulevard! Sincerely, David and Olga

Personal and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo! First of all the owners were awesome. The condo was clean and cute! We loved the first floor location as we were literally feet from both the ocean and pool. There was never more than 4 people at the pool at one time. Our stay was very private and relaxing! We celebrated our first anniversary while there and it was perfect! Loved that the owners supplied us with floats, beach towels, books, magazines, etc. We will definitely be back. We highly recommend this condo! Thank you David and Olga!
