Island Princess Condominiums
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The condo is very clean and the grounds are kept up. Beach service is complimentary but just plan on not being taken care of unless you're handing the kid cash. There's a long front row of chairs and umbrellas and a shorter row set behind that. Plan on being in the back row or coming to the beach after 11am to get a spot someone else didn't show up for. Otherwise, he's a broken record of excuses.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with family

Returned this year the first week of May and it was as neat and clean as last year. Owner maintains it well and has recently done more remodeling. View from balcony has that beautiful white sand straight out in front of you. Comes with 2 beach chairs and umbrella. 2 bedroom 2 bath. Master king bedroom with window overlooking ocean and another sliding door to balcony. very well furnished with most anything you might need. Great rate. Plan to return next year. http://www.sun-sand.cc/islandprincess.htm

Room Tip: 5th floor has beautiful ocean view

Pros:
The beach was beautiful. The pool at the property was clean.

Cons:
We could complain about how the tv remotes didn't work but that is something we normally could let slide. It was the bigger things that really made us feel tricked. The "Gulf View" was a stretch. You can see the gulf from around the corner of the building but this unit actually looks out on a public parking lot and beyond that a big construction site. This means you really have no privacy (or control over noise). Speaking of noise, you better hope nobody rents the unit above this one or else you will hear them walking around or slamming doors all night. Speaking of doors, the front door to the unit is badly corroded from salt water and for security reasons we wished it had been fixed. Both bathrooms were pretty dated with corroded bathtubs. We were charged extra because we didn't empty the trash upon departure. Seriously.

Bottom line, there are 4000 other condos to rent in the area. Do yourself a favor and move on to the next one. This one is definitely not worth the money or the headache.

Room Tip: Avoid unit 318. Try and get a unit that doesn't look out over the construction site or public p...

I stayed in Condo 102 bottom level. It was clean and very nice. I will definitely stay here again. I liked the convenience of being on first floor. NO view of the beach, but the location of condo was perfect. Beautiful beach.

Room Tip: Bottom floors have a view of the dunes.

Had a wonderful west side view of the gulf. This condo was very clean. It did need to have extra paper towels and dish soap. It had almost anything we needed. Definitely use the side elevator as too many turns to carry your luggage.

Room Tip: Bring extra paper goods

I've stayed at several condos in the Oakaloosa Island area, and this is the 3rd one we've stayed at. It has a nice 2 covered parking garage, which for me is a plus. This is a 7 story condo with 3 elevators. We booked 608, right off the center elevator in the middle of the complex. An excellent view from the balcony. The room was very nice, well decorated, clean. It had a bath and a 1/2, a master bedroom, 2 bunk beds built into the wall in the hallway and the couch let out into a double bed. The kitchen was nice too, although we did have to turn down the freezer section of the 'fridge.
Yes, the elevators are slow...... especially during "peak hours" but it's not too bad. After all.... you are on vacation, right?!?
The pool area is real nice, with a hot tub off to one side. I didn't use the health club, but there is one there.
The beach pass was a nice touch, you get 2 chairs and an umbrella each day during your stay. Makes it nice to sit out and enjoy the Gulf!
There are restaurants close by on the Island, and Destin is about 8 to 10 minutes away. There is a PUBLIX close by too, so you can pick up a few groceries if you need them.
All in all, it's a nice place to stay. Nothing fancy, but it does the job.
Am I going back next year? You bet!

We stayed a week at the Island Princess in a three bedroom three bath condo. It was a great place to stay with a family. The pool was clean. The property overall was clean and it was not overcrowded. The beach attendants were awesome. They were very attentive and helpful. The workout room is small but they do have an eliptical, two tread mills and some weights. The pool is clean but small. We didn't spend time at the pool though. If you want a view of the ocean, don't stay on the ground floor. The ground floor's view is blocked by the dunes. We had a wonderful view on the 4th floor. We stayed in 401. Keep in mind that these are condos. This is not a resort. There is beach service for chairs and umbrellas.
