I had very limited contact with host, however, the front desk folks at the Islander were very pleasant and friendly. The property is gated and beautifully maintained.
Mr Yu was fantastic. He always replied to us quickly and when we were accidentally charged twice he got it fixed before we could get back to the desk! The unit is a bit farther from the beach than we like but the view from the balcony was very nice. We watched dolphins playing in the water with our breakfast every morning. The location of the unit from an elevator is a bit inconvenient but is doable. The beds are comfortable. The tv in every room is convenient. The kitchen was stocked with plenty pots and pans. If I had one suggestion it would be to replace carpet with tile and replace sliding shower doors with curtains that can be washed more easily. I believe the Islander charges $100 cleaning fee so I would have expected the showers to be clean but instead there was mold on the tiles. I don't blame mr Yu, I blame the cleaning crew. Other than that we were very happy with our stay. Love love love destin Florida and thank you Mr. Yu for letting us stay at your condo!
could use a little update on the interior however considering the price, it is a great deal. will recommend this place to anyone and definitely will go back again in the future.
Really good experience at this condo. Close proximity to the beach... Very clean and the best I've seen on this sight for the money. Right across the street from a Target and lots of restaurants (do yourself a favor and visit the Louisiana Lagniappe, 2 min drive from this condo).
The ONLY negative to the entire trip, the beds. I'm not a picky/high maintenance person but they were hard as a rock and uncomfortable. All 3 of them. Other than that, it was perfect.
This was a great little beach condo. We could walk right to the beautiful, white sandy beach in less than a minute. Everything was clean, and we had plenty of space for 6 people. We would definitely stay here again.
Loved our stay. This is home for us but we love to actually stay at the beach when visiting. This is perfect for our families who were both staying and visiting from nearby. Condo had everything we needed. Add in Coastal Crib Rentals and all we had to provide was ourselves, food and essentials. Wish The Islander had a children's playground and water play area. More than enough room for each. A large fire pit would have also enhanced the stay! We were able to make do with the tiki grill though for s'mores. Kids did love the activities provided. Another wish list item might be using the lawn for family movies at night. Might cut down on the adult partying and fighting we witnessed. Also enjoyed being close enough to the pass to enjoy all the boat, parasail, jet ski and airplane activity. Walking down to the jetty at sunset is also a beautiful plus. Being off 98 is nice. Only have to cross and you are right at the grocery store. Also, short drive to Harbor Walk, restaurants and other local favorites so you don't have to deal with traffic too much - a local nightmare. This is a visit we do multiple times throughout each year and we will be looking at airbnd as well as The Islander for great deals in the future. Extremely easy and convenient website service!
Wonderful condominiums! We had great time! Clean and accommodating! Would definitely recommend. Great views and amenities. Thanks Xian-Min! Chrissy
Xian-Min was very helpful throughout the whole process. He was very quick to answer questions we had.
Check-in was great and very easy. The beach is very close. Has great Wifi. The pool was good. Hot tub on the property actually had hot water unlike most properties I've seen. Parking was ample. Location was right near everything you would need in Destin.
We would suggest supplying some of the basic cleaning supplies like dish soap and sponge to clean the pans. Also, maybe have salt and pepper available and maybe packets of sugar and coffee filters.
Mr Yu responded quickly to my inital request and answered all our questions after booking quickly. The condo was exactly as described. Right on the ocean and very nice. The people in the office were super nice too. We will definitely be returning in the future.
Thanks Mr Yu!!!!
The condo was nice and clean. Plenty of kitchenware was available for use. Beds were comfy. Xian-Min was a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely love to come back!
