Time to be at the beach!  If you’re not at the beach, it’s not too late! We have a few rooms left, hurry and call before it’s too late!  Stay on the west side for a fabulous view of the Destin fireworks over the Harbor from your balcony.  Don’t fight the crowds, come to the Islander, bring your groceries and never have to leave!

Don’t wait til it’s too late! Our condos are booking fast for the summer!

Golfing On The Emerald Coast

April 17th, 2012

At last count – and the figure is a moving target – 18 public, semiprivate, and private golf courses lie with a few long tee shots of Destin and Ft. Walton Beach on Florida’s Panhandle coast.  A couple are nine – hole, two are 36, and there’s even a 45, which means the area offers more than 300 opportunities to slice one toward (and maybe into) the Gulf or Choctawatchee Bay.  Selections include a Fred Couples signature course at Kelly Plantation and a pair of championship courses at Tiger Point, which has hosted several PGA events.

As an Islander guest, two courses in Destin will give you 20% off to play. Those courses are Indian Bayou and Emerald Bay Golf.

SPRING HAS SPRUNG!

March 24th, 2012

Has it ever! The temperatures here have been in the high 70’s and low 80’s! Very little rain, a little windy at times, but overall, JUST BEAUTIFUL!  It’s spring break once again and the fun is truly here in Destin on the Beaches. Parasailing, Cobia fishing, sailing, boating, or just relaxing in your private chair on The Islander’s beach!  Don’t miss out, make your plans and reservations TODAY.

SPRING BREAK CUT SHORT

March 9th, 2012

I heard that spring break is only going to be 4 weeks now instead of 6. That means you only have 2 weeks left! The Islander is a fun place to stay, the pool is really grand and the beach is just beautiful.  With all the renovations they’ve done, you really need to see for yourself.  After you read this, just click on ‘reservations’ and make yours – today!
