Guestbook comments from the manager

This was a great unit! It was cozy and felt like a home away from home! I loved the face the grocery store was nearby and I cook dinner as much as I wanted! We also loved that there was plenty of things to do around us! We went shopping at the Destin Commons. We went to the Air Force Museum, which was amazing! We went to the movies quite a few times. The best thing about this is being able to spend quality time with my family! We really liked this unit. It was very clean and filled with everything we needed. It was in a great location. We plan on coming back in summer!

I’ve stayed 5 years at island sands and never a problem until this year. We still enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time. The only complaint I have is there was a leak in hall bathroom that I noticed on the first day. To the point where I had to put a bowl under and poor out water each day. I spoke with someone the first two days but never had anyone come by to try and fix our entire stay. Kinda was a little disappointed with that. I did let them in on two different occasions to fix air for number 303.

Great Beach Access

  • 4 of 5

The overall unit was just enough space for our small family. You couldn’t get any closer to the beach. The beach chairs that were included were fantastic.We were able to sit and relax and enjoy the gorgeous waters and views. The only thing that was a slight disappointment was the cleanliness of the unit. We understand it’s the busy season but maybe look into that. We will definitely be back again.

Totally Awesome!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the best time on our vacation and that was due largely in part to the condo. It was perfect for our 2 adult and 2 kid family. The owners have perfected their condo to meet your every need. They had it stocked with everything you need in the kitchen and the bathroom. They also have furnished beach/pool towels for you to use and have extra towels in the bathroom. Between all 4 of us and the times we took showers, (which was multiple times every day) we only had to wash towels once! And that was totally NOT an inconvenience bc you have the washer and dryer are right there. Both of the couches fold out into sleeper sofas, but the couches themselves were so comfortable, our girls just slept on them regularly. They also have an electric grill, as well as a 4 chair patio table and 2 extra lounge chairs on the patio. You are MAYBE 15 steps to the wooden walk way that leads to the beach! Just a short walk across the bridge and your toes are in the sand! You also have two beach chairs and an umbrella ready for you everyday. They are ready around 8:00 each morning. You just take your towels down and put them in the 2 chairs you want and claim your spot. Then it's yours until they put them up around 5:00 each afternoon. It is awesome staying on the bottom floor bc you don't have to carry your luggage, groceries, or beach accessories up and down the stairs in the front. This seems to be an older complex and there is no elevator so being on the first floor was definitely easier. It was very nice not having to worry about our girls having to run up and down steps. They could just walk in from the beach or pool with no problems.The pool is across the parking lot from the condo and was always very clean as well. It also has a separate outside bathroom for boys AND girls so you don't have to leave the pool area at all. The ONLY downside to staying on the bottom floor is you do not have a view of the beach due to the tall sand dunes. So when you step onto the patio, your view is sand dunes and sea oats until you walk onto the bridge. You are close to everything you would need from dinning, to shopping and play. You are right around the corner form the Gulfarium where you can see live dolphin and sea lion shows among many other things. You are also only a 3 minute drive from access to the back bay and a 15-20 minute drive into downtown Destin. We will absolutely stay here again in the future! Thanks to the owners for making this a great vaca!

Quiet, clean and comfortable; steps to beach

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I made an impromptu beach trip and stayed in 103 Island Sands in Ft. Walton Beach. This ground level one-bedroom was exceptional. The king mattress in the master was so comfortable, the kitchen was very clean and well stocked, the living room was large and could accommodate other guests. We cooked most meals in the condo and had everything we needed; utensils, cookware, serving dishes, etc. Though you couldn't see the ocean over the dune immediately behind the back patio (BBQ grill included btw) you were 20 paces from the boardwalk that provided private beach access and a shower for your return from the salt and sand.. The beaches at the end of Island were uncrowded and beach service was provided. More bath and beach towels than we could possibly use, and extra linens were also provided. This unit is a jewel for a small family and Kimberly Lang is our go to rental company on the Emerald Coast. We are never disappointed!

Loved the property. Cozy and clean.

Loved the condo, but found 3 cockroaches in the bathroom our first morning there. You did come and spray and didn't see any more the whole month.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the condo! We do apologize about the palmetto bugs. Unfortunately, palmetto bugs are indigenous to our area, but we got the situation rectified for you

Nice little condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Island Sands. Everything you could possibly need was provided in the condo. You really can’t beat being only steps from beach access, with included beach service at that! The only thing that bothered me out of the whole stay was that the living room carpet turned our feet black, so it could probably stand to be cleaned more often! But really that was just one small con to an overall wonderful visit!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We do apologize about the carpets, it is difficult when a unit is a back to back to get the carpets cleaned and dried before the next guests check in. The carpets have been cleaned
