  • Spent the first week of May at Dune Point #201. Weather was perfect. Beach uncrowded and beautiful. Loved having a beach setup included in the cost of unit. We chose to eat out most night but the kitchen has every utensil, high quality too, any cook needs. Lovely decor, very spacious, plenty of linens -- everything you need for a wonderful beach vacation. We will definitely be back again!

  • Our rental experience was very good. We have rented from Sugar Sands before and have always found them to be accommodating and helpful. The condo was very nice and well taken care of.

  • Our stay was delightful in every way. The condo was immaculate and well-appointed. The view could not have been more beautiful! If only it had been available for an extra month!

  • Did a family vaca with 2 small toddlers. Great location, condo offers really great gulf views! Family friendly, quite in March when we went. Didn't see many "spring breakers" in this area. Destin is just a 5 min drive down the road. Some of the best beaches we've been to! Kids loved the heated pools!

  • Our family had such a wonderful and relaxing vacation. The condo was so clean and comfortable. Beds, couch, chaise- all super. The condo had everything you could need. The location was unbelievable. It was so great to sit out on the patio and drink coffee while watching the wave’s crash and spot dolphins. The kitchen had everything needed and it was handy to have a laundry room. We LOVED it and would gladly return.

  • It was such a beautiful unit. Way beyond our expectations. It is huge with amazing views of the ocean. Beach access was wonderful. No complaints! :-) We will rent this unit again. Thanks again for sharing your unit with our family. Looking forward to doing this again. Only wish I could give you more than 5 stars. Honestly, this place is amazing.

  • Great rental. The view is exactly as pictured no Photoshop here. Clean and well maintained. Exceptionally great parking in the deck makes getting to your room convenient. Loved all the water options with so many pools. Hope to make another trip next year. I don't want to recommend, because I don't want everyone to know about this gem of a place, but i can't say anything bad about these accommodations at all.

  • Absolutely perfect. No complaints at all. Will come back for sure. Thank you so much.

  • We had a wonderful time on the island! Beach is never crowded and access is instant from the condo. Having two kings is a plus. Wish I was still there!

  • Property was at the very end of beach so fairly quiet from a large complex perspective. Staff was excellent from gate guards to maintenance to Management Company. The condo was very clean and perfect location for the family with plenty of room with excellent views

  • The condo location was perfect. Nicely decorated and clean. Ocean view was beautiful. Deck was nice size. Pool was clean and in great location between condo building and beach. Beach service was excellent. Wonderful place to stay for a family vacation!

  • Well maintained condo complex in a beautiful location. Beach was fantastic. We have made multiple trips here and love it more every time.

  • Everything was perfect. The unit had everything we needed. It was a great location. The best set up to the pool and the beach. My family really enjoyed our stay.

  • Everything was great and as described. Loved beach service. Slept a family with four kids nicely. Can’t beat the price anywhere.

  • Enjoyed my fall break vacation & also for my daughter’s wedding in this condo. Rooms were spacious & everything was furnished that we needed. Location is great, just a short drive to destin for shopping and eating & also Ft. Walton has a lot of great restaurants. Our favorite was black pearl and anglers! Would definitely recommend this condo and Russ was great to work with ;)

  • Condo was clean and comfortable. The beach, pools and general area was clean, calm, and had very friendly people. I stay here every year because it's a family oriented area, its walking distance to the pier, shops and places to eat.

  • The Management Company (Russ and Beverly) were extremely helpful. Their response to inquiries was prompt and accurate. This was our third stay at Pelican Isle on Okaloosa Island and we love the location, solitude, size of property, beach service, and property maintenance. Our unit was spotless and the decor was charming and cheerful. We will definitely return in 2016 with friends and family!

  • Our visit to Okaloosa Island was great, the condo was exactly what my wife and I look for, clean comfortable, secure and within our budget. We were there for a weekend stay and it was a perfect get away, we got the beach and some awesome seafood! Looking forward to doing it again.

  • My experience was great and satisfying. Not only did I enjoy the location but my Mother and Daughter did as well. Everything we could ask for was within walking distance and if not just a short drive away. The condo has an awesome and relaxing view in addition to being quiet and cozy. There was even fishing tackle and beach gear at our availability to enjoy the pristine water and white sandy beach. Looking forward to visiting again :)
