coming to The Islander since I was a kid with my parents. I cant ever remember a bad trip or a bad experience. Maybe,
that's why we keep coming back. When we got older my
parents would take me and my brother and friends sometimes twice a year. About 3 years ago, my mom went into septic shock and since then has had multiple surgeries and many health problems and is unable to come with us anymore. This year, though I am 25, which means
I am finally legal to rent the condo out myself.
Therefore, I've invited my brother and a couple of our mutual friends and we will be there in a week!
I've had so many great experiences at the islander that
I feel I can rate it a thumbs up. I always recommend
The Islander to other friends and co-workers that are thinking of going to
