Just finished a week's stay at The Islander. Great location off the busy main road in Destin. Condos are located on a private, gated facility. Guests must enter a secured code to access parking lot and also use the beach entrance. Beautiful location, and never a concern for security! Staff was amazing! Very friendly and willing to help in anyway. The are always cleaning and keeping the property well maintained. Condo was clean and spacious for our family of 4 (2 kids; 13 and 11). Free WIFI. Balcony provides excellent views of the pools, harbour, and Gulf. Most guess cook in the evenings, but there are sooo many places to eat in the area. Main road is always bumper-to-bumper. The Islander is just minutes from a Target/WalMart/Publix/WinnDixie.
Very FAMILY FRIENDLY location. Active fun atmosphere during the day and evenings.....quiet hours start at 10PM, and we never had a problem.
We were able to watch (and hear!) the Fireworks from our balcony. Great view! The boardwalk is about a 15 minute drive in traffic, and has a lot of activities and resturaunts. Two major shopping centers are located about 20 minutes (driving) east of The Islander. Worth the drive if you like that....More
