About Larry & Edwina Denning

We love the beach, and our three daughters and three grandchildren do, too! The Islander Resort offered us easy access (no streets to cross) to the beach, an abundance of amenities, and quick access to all that Destin has to offer. We all live near Franklin, Tennessee, so Destin is only a few hours away and very convenient for us.

Larry & Edwina Denning purchased this condo in 2015

Why Larry & Edwina Denning chose Holiday Isle

We chose our home after looking at many, many properties in Destin. We loved the view of the gulf from the balcony! So many homes we looked at did not afford the view we found at Islander 317. When we bought this home, we knew we would have to remodel it, and so we did. 90 days after we bought it, we had completed the remodeling of our new home, including new tile floors, fresh paint, new fixtures, granite countertops, appliances, and furniture. We love the way it turned out, and we hope you will, too.

What makes this condo unique

Water views and easy beach access drew us to this home. We didn't want to cross busy highways to get to the beach, and we wanted a gorgeous view of sunrises and sunsets to enjoy morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.

Best condo in Destin by FAR!

  • 5 of 5

I've been staying in Destin every summer for over a decade, and I have never stayed in a more beautiful and comfortable condo. The Denning's were so kind and helped us out with every question we had. If I could give 10 stars, I would! I cannot wait to vacation here again!!

The condo was clean, well-kept and beautifully decorated. It was complete with all of the amenities we needed during our stay. It was a bonus to have access to chairs and umbrella on the beach as well. This was our first time visiting Destin and we have already decided we will be back. We won’t hesitate to rent this condo again!

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

The unit was beyond our expectations. Very clean and updated! We had great views and the pools were nice. We never heard our neighbors or water thru the walls - great trip! I highly recommend this unit if you are traveling this way. Very easy access with great front office staff.

Comfortable, Clean, and updated

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The Islander staff was always helpful. The condo met our needs and then some. We especially enjoyed the balcony with views of the gulf. The photos provided were exactly as we found the property: sleek and spacious.

Perfect location, clean and updated decor!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying at the Islander 317 and we already booked for next year as well. We love the location! It is close to all the good restaurants, right on the beach and gorgeous views from the balcony. The interior finishes and upgrades are very nicely done. Comfortable beds, new furnishings and wonderful tile flooring (no carpet, yay!). We loved the grilling set and used it often to cook on the grill. The plastic plates were perfect for dining outside. The pots and pans were just like ours at home. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could possibly need. Including a KEURIG! The extra beach chairs in the utility closet were very nice and thoughtful of the owners to provide. We used them along with the beach service chairs at the beach everyday. We love 317 and hope to vacation here every year!
