All new decor, including new mattresses, even a new sofa bed. This unit is on the 6th floor of The Islander, a 7 story, resort style gated condo facility. This unit is part of The Islander rental program which means you receive all of the services the resort provides. There is 24 hour front desk service during most of year, so someone is always available to answer your questions that might come up. The building offers a coin operated laundry room for guests and a towel exchange. They also provide towels for beach use. There is private beach access and beach chair service of 2 chairs and an umbrella is also included during the warmer months. Also available is kayak and paddle board rental. Wifi is included in the unit. The Islander also provides family entertainment during the summer, with face painting, balloon animals, a zoo show, and painting on the beach for children.

The Islander features 2 pools, 2 hot tubs, 4 tennis/pickle ball courts, and many grills your use under a pretty gazebo area. One of the pools is heated seasonally.

The master bedroom contains a king size bed with new mattress and bedding. It has a large private master bathroom with a tub/shower combination. Wake up to beautiful gulf views from the master.

The guest bedroom has a queen bed, also with a new mattress and bedding. It is across from a full bathroom. Both bedrooms have large closets, tv's and blu-ray players. We have also included a Pack-n-Play for your little ones.

There is also a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room, as well as a new 40" TV, with HD cable and blu-ray player. There is a large, 100 sq. ft. balcony to the unit with table, 4 chairs and a chaise lounger.

From the balcony, you can see beautiful gulf sunset views. Enjoy watching the boats go in and out of the harbor, through the pass and by the jetty. It is common to see dolphins in the afternoon, following the boats or playing with the paddle boarders and kayakers. See the Thursday night fireworks over the Harbor. Watch as the military out of Eglin AFB runs various training activities in the area.

This is a great area for walking along the beach, whether you choose to walk for miles along the uninterrupted beach , or go for a jog on the sidewalks along the beautiful beachfront properties of Holiday Isle. Walk or drive approximately a half mile to Norriego Point Beach and access the water taxi, which will take you on a few minutes' ride across the harbor to the various restaurants, bars and shops at HarborWalk Village. A short walk in the other direction, will take you for morning coffee at local restaurants or evening musical entertainment at Bric a' Brac. It is also a short uber or taxi ride to many of the popular nightlife areas.

We currently live in Denver, Colorado. Bob is from the Florida and Arizona area, and Pam is from the midwest. We love to visit beach destinations every chance we get. We instantly fell in love with The Islander Resort! The beachy decor, views from this unit and the staff are great. We love sitting on the balcony or beach and watching the dolphins play, the military air and water training exercises, the gorgeous sunsets, and the boats going in and out of the harbor. Of course we love the views - the Gulf, the East Pass, the dolphins and the fireworks. But we also love how convenient this location is to everything as we love to go out and about--the Harbor Walk village, shopping, and all the great restaurants. And its a short drive over to Ft. Walton as well.

Islander #615    Oct 16, 2018

review star


We loved the Islander. Condo #615 was clean and well stocked with everything. The beds aren’t the greatest but that’s everywhere. The walk to the beach was great since it was a short distance on the sand. The added chairs and umbrella was a plus. Nice neighborhood. Older building but for the price we thought it was good. We will definitely stay here again. The owners kept in touch with us concerning the hurricane weather. Thanks for a great stay.

AMAZING TIME!!!    Sep 29, 2018

I couldn't be more pleased with our stay at The Islander. Staff in the lobby were great to work with and the condo had everything we needed for our week stay. Pictures are exactly what the condo looks like-beautiful and well kept! The views were amazing from the balcony and the unit was well stocked with sand toys for the kids and even had a cooler for use that came handy for drinks down at the beach. My family and I will definitely return and will stay in this condo again! Thanks for having us!

Very Beautiful and Clean!    Aug 10, 2018

We enjoyed our stay at the Islander and especially condo 615. The Beds were comfortable and clean. The linen exchange was very easy to manage and the location from the condo to the beach was not that far of a walk compared to what we saw others were having to do. Both onsite pools were nice as well. We enjoyed having all grill supplies available to us and that we were given a VIP discount card. My family would definitely choose the Islander for future vacations in Destin. We has a fabulous time :)

LOVED IT!!!    Aug 01, 2018

review star


Although it rained the first couple of days... any day at the beach is better than a day in the office! The condo was comfortable and cutely decorated, the front desk help was very nice, and checking in and out was easy. One of the two pools is right below the condo so it was easy to yell down to the kids to come up for lunch or shower for dinner. Would have liked an extra towel exchange since it was raining, but I shouldn't have been so lazy as I could have taken them to the dryer. Beach chairs are first come, first served, so get down there EARLY!!! You can just throw your towel on them and go back to your room. They do have a few beach toys that other guests have left at the beach and we left 2 skim boards (with the "sex wax" for them) in the utility closet, others have left things to play in the sand with, and there is a medium size cooler as well. It was close to everything we wanted to do. If you go to the Broadwalk be sure to park at the community center!!! You pay by phone and it was $3.50 for the entire night versus the $10 the onsite parking was going to charge and it was literally a half block further. We had a great time and will definitely return!!!

Comfortable, Clean with a Great View!    Sep 26, 2017

review star


My husband and I spent our 10yr Anniversary here and really enjoyed it. The place was clean. Beds were comfortable and TVs in every room not that we had time to watch them. The view was amazing for Sunsets and morning coffee. Although one of the pools and BBQ area was below it was pretty quiet being the end of Sept and six floors up. I loved that they provided shopping carts to bring groceries to the room. There were extra pillows and blankets in the closet that could be used for the sleeper sofa. They provide 4 rolls of toilet paper so plan on bringing more if you stay longer. Elevator was great. Two pools and two hot tubs were available and not crowded. Beach service was nice. Staff was friendly. We will definitely be back!

Great Sunset Views!    Sep 16, 2017

review star


Beautifully decorated condo with excellent views of the Destin bridge, boats coming in & out of the harbor and the gulf. It was equipped with everything we could possibly need to cook. A few little beach toys in the closet were a welcome surprise to the kids. We had 3 adults and to small children and had plenty of room. Owners have done an excellent job!

Great condo!    Jul 02, 2017

We stayed here the week of the 4th of July. Nice location, nice condo and property. They have a very nice grilling area, close to the pool. The beach was a good walk but it was convenient with walkways and ramps. Having the beach chairs and umbrella each day was a great bonus! The view of the fireworks from the balcony was awesome! Definitely recommend The Islander!

Great property in a great location!    Jun 13, 2017

review star


We enjoyed our stay in unit 615! The Islander is in a great location, perfect for those wanting a more family-oriented beach environment. We were just a short drive from the Harborwalk Village (unless there was nighttime traffic) and the many other restaurants and stores on Hwy 98. The unit was decorated beautifully and was the perfect set-up for two couples to share. We had some issues connecting to the wifi, but an Islander staff member came up to our room to help us get connected to a network. The internet speed is not the greatest, but if it hadn't been raining so much during our stay, we probably wouldn't have noticed! A fun bonus was that with this unit we got a VIP card, which gave us discounts on some of the activities we did while in Destin.

The Islander and Unit 615 was perfect for our family's first beach vacation. The view from the balcony was fantastic. My daughters are fanatical about dolphins and the fact that we could spot them swimming from our room just put them over the moon. The facility was clean the overall atmosphere was very much family friendly. Would recommend the place to anyone but particularly folks with young children.

Beautifully decorated condo overlooking the oval pool and common area.    Sep 22, 2016

review star


This condo is the perfect spot to watch the boats going out in the morning, and amazing sunsets in the evening. It is beautifully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with glasses, mugs, bowls, plates, coffee maker, ice maker and pots and pans.The only thing I found missing that I wished were there were pot holders. The bathrooms are roomy and have hair dryers. The beds are large and comfortable. The staff at the Islander are awesome from the front desk to the chair guy at the beach. You can't go wrong staying in #615. It is absolutely beautiful, and the owners are quick to respond to questions
