About this rental
This 2bedroom/2 bath is an end unit on the second floor of the beautiful Islander Resort. Terrific view just off the balcony of an adjacent lake, the causeway to Destin Harbor, and the Gulf .It overlooks one of the Islander's 2 pools and hot tubs, the grilling pavilion, and one of the available shuffleboard areas. the entire condo has been freshly painted and appointed with new furniture. All for an extremely affordable price!
Condo 218 offers a king bed in the master with newer mattress and box springs, a twin over full bunk be and an additional twin in the guest room. which is ideal for families and children.
All of the furniture in the living room and dining area has been replaced within the pas 12-18 months.
The flooring is all ceramic tile or vinyl plank flooring in each of the bedrooms. Everything is new or newer throughout the condo.
We love the view of the lake, causeway with fishing boats coming and going, and the beautiful Gulf in the near distance. We also enjoy being on the end of the second floor giving us privacy, yet convenient to everything ( including parking!!) that the Islander has to offer.
We are on the beach in 4-5 minutes and in our car, with parking just below the condo, in less time.
Why Kids Love It
Kids love their bedroom with bunk beds and the flat screen television on the wall where everyone can see it. They are only steps away from the pool/hot tub and the grassy area just below the condo to run and play. Above all is the beach whivh is just across the complex and through the gated walkway.
The Islander Resort is located on Holiday Drive, which is well maintained and one of Destin's finest vacation addresses. It is convenient to restaurants, night life , Harbor Walk, fishing, boating, grocery stores and all the other attractions Destin has to offer. Easy to rent a pontoon boat and cruise over to Crab Island and the Bay for an afternoon or just walk doe3n the 2 lane street to see some fabulous beach homes, boats at the marina and the East pass beaches and Gulf.
Favorite Places To Eat
Marina Café (2 for 1 dinners between 5-6 PM and a great happy hour
Bay Café--Just across the bridge going into Ft. Walton great duck entries
AJ Marina for a great view of the harbor and all the action
McGuire's for steak, pork chops, and steak burgers. #.18 bean soup and chicken thigh appetizer---the best!!
Vinny's Pizza huge and delicious located just below McGuire's
Graffiti's for Italian and a great happy hour
Pompano Joe's--beachfront--great view and happy hour outside over looking the Gulf
Dynasty Restaurant for Chinese
There are so many great restaurants that it is just up to what type of food you may want any given night!!!
Take a tour of the 30-A area just east of the condo--maybe 12 miles or so. Unique restaurants and beach side villages. I like George's restaurant in the Ally's beach area. A great Bloody Mary can be found at the Hurricane Restaurant and Bar.

About the owner: Ruthie and I own 2 condos in the Destin area. We love the Gulf Shore Drive address. I is a quite dead end street and a quiet neighborhood that is safe and equally beautiful. My career has been in the hospitality industry where for 30 years I was with the Greater Cincinnati Convention and Visitors Bureau. 20 of those years, I served as President and CEO. I understand the needs and expectations of of our guests and we do all possible to exceed those expectations and provide an outstanding and memorable vacation destination at a fair and reasonable price. We are from Northern Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati. Ruthie served as the office manager for a psychological firm and was also a stay at home mom for many years for our 2 sons.
Why this property? For many reasons:
* it is an end condo on the second floor, easily accessible to the Islander parking and just steps to all the Islander Resort has to offer including a spectacular beach!!
*The condo has been updated with fresh paint throughout, new furniture and bedding, and no carpet
* new sliding glass shower doors
*beautiful view of the adjacent lake with the causeway to Destin Harbor and the Gulf in the distance. Also over looks one of the two available pools and hot tubs and the grilling pavilion and shuffle board areas as well.
*Like all condo units at the Islander, each has been upgraded with new hurricane proof sliding doors and windows
The condo is beautiful, as is the setting!!
post xmas get away
Loved the location as close to all, but also a little quiet oasis--the bathroom is small--there was only two of us so fine but would be difficult for 4. Also, nothing at all in the kitchen--not even salt and pepper. So make sure you bring all supplies
