Island Sands is a small, beach front complex on gorgeous Okaloosa Island with everything you need for a wonderful vacation on the white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico! This small 27 unit complex offers a peaceful retreat and a quiet, less crowded beach, yet is just minutes away from downtown Destin.
Island Sands 206 has incredible gulf front views and is right on the beach! The bedroom has a queen sized bed and there is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room, so this unit can accomodate up to 4 people. There's an extra half bath for a little elbow room for your group.
Sip coffee or a glass of wine from your balcony as you listen to the waves lap up onto the beach. Grill up the day's fresh catch in the communal grilling area and enjoy dining there or back in your condo, where you can eat on the balcony, the bistro table or the stools at the spacious kitchen bar. There's also a washer & dryer in the condo for your convenience.
Island Sands features a large pool with changing area, outdoor showers, grilling/picnic area, and ample parking.
Nearby attractions within walking distance include the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier and Boardwalk, The Gulfarium featuring live dolphin shows, and great family restaurants such as The Black Pear, Anglers, Fudpuckers and The Crab Trap. You'll also want to check out the night life when you stop by Howl at the Moon and The Swamp for loads of fun and entertainment!
Heading West over Brooks Bridge and into Fort Walton Beach you can explore the historic downtown along Miracle Strip Pkwy and visit the Indian Temple Mound and Air Force Museum.
You can head East approximately 4 miles into Destin for fabulous shopping, Big Kahuna's Water Park, Hard Rock Cafe, and The Track Family Fun Center featuring go carts, arcade, minigolf and bungee jumping or walk the harbor for dolphin cruises, charter fishing, jet ski and kayak rentals, parasailing and more!

I was very pleased with the unit and the location! What a beautiful place! It was comfortable and everything it was advertised to be an more. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans and utensils and everything was clean. I will recommend this to my friends and other military families that I know who want to travel to the area. Would love to have access to a broom just to brush out the sand after we came in from the beach. It seems impossible to not bring it in with you!!! Darn... Lol!
Thanks to RealJoy for a wonderful stay!

We enjoyed our stay at Island Sands 206 tremendously. Great area, very quiet and the beach is stunning. Impressed with maintenance of both the complex and the beach area. There is no elevator, but this is only a three-story complex. Makes taking heavy luggage a bit of a chore, but other than that no problems. Everything was clean and in perfect order upon our arrival. There is a stacked washer/dryer, which is a great plus, but the dryer takes forever to get clothes even partially dry, so that needs to be addressed. There isn't an ice maker in the refrigerator, but there is a great little store just down the road so getting a bag of ice was easy enough. Kitchen was nicely furnished with everything you could want. We would certainly stay here again.

Island Sands 206 is a perfect place to stay on Okaloosa Island. The beaches and views are amazing. Best of all is that the beaches were not busy. There was plenty of room for my 4 year old to run around and enjoy himself.
The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. It is not a fancy resort, but it is exactly as advertised and what we expected.
It is conveniently located closely to Ft. Walton for groceries, dining, movies or whatever you may need and the fishing pier and the Boardwalk were close by too. Destin was only about a 10 minutes drive away if you were feeling a little more adventurous, yet it was far enough away that you didn't get the Destin crowds.

We loved this condo. Everything was exactly as stated and the photos didnt do the condo justice. The view is beautiful. We had to call maintenance because the wifi wouldn't work and he called back right away and had us reboot it and it worked great the rest of the time.

I had an awesome time at the beach in this condo, but I was quite surprised when I walked in to find such dated accommodations. My parents were also renting a condo in the same building which was completely updated incredibly nice. However the view of the beach made it worthwhile. Read more
Thank you for the review - We have since completely updated the condo with new flat screen TVs, new couch and chair in the living room, a new dining room table, and new patio furniture, and new comforter in the bedroom. We also removed some of the old furniture that was cluttering the place up.
RealJoy Vacations just took over the management of this condo a week before you arrived and we are sorry that you had to stay there with the dated furnishings.
