About Terri DeFoor
We are D. Jay and Terri DeFoor from Middle Georgia. We live about five hours away from our Okaloosa Condo. We have been married since 1977, and have three grown children.
Terri DeFoor purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Terri DeFoor chose Ft Walton Beach
We bought our Azure condo for our 30th wedding anniversary in 2007. We toured several beautiful beach condos in the Destin and Fort Walton Beach area, and settled on this brand new property because we fell in love with its beauty and its wonderful location. We are close enough to Destin for dining and shopping there, but Okaloosa offers everything you need if you don't want to fight the summer traffic. We have great places to eat, the fishing pier, convenient shopping, jet ski and pontoon rentals close by. We are within walking distance to the Gulfarium, a great place to see dolphin, sea lions, and other sea creatures up close. We had great fun working with a local decorator to coordinate furniture, decor, custom window treatments and bedding, and paint. I spent a couple of days creating the floral arrangements, which was a lot of fun. We continue to update furnishings and keep everything in tip-top shape. 2018 is our tenth rental season, and we continue to have nothing but positive comments from our guests. This spring (2016), we will be painting walls and trim, re-doing floral arrangements, and a few more updates to keep everything fresh and wonderful! So we hope you'll come check us out in 2016!
What makes this Condo unique
We love eating at Old Bay Steamer just across the street, and High Tide has the best steamed oysters and seafood gumbo. We have walked down the beach to eat at Floyd's Shrimp House next to the pier, and we have ordered Italian fare from Pranzo's close by. Terri and Shelley (our daughter) finally made it to the Gulfarium, which is just down the beach. We had a great afternoon of watching the dolphins, seals, and sea lions. We took some great photos. I would recommend it for a nice relaxing outing. There isn't much offered in the way of food, but you can have your hand stamped, walk next door to eat, and go back in. For our guests, we include two beach set-ups, which is four chairs and two umbrellas provided daily from March 1 to October 31 every year. We also include free local and domestic long distance land phone, free WIFI and wired internet, Bose stereo system, Bluetooth capable, with IPod dock in the living/dining area, beautiful decor, great bedding, roomy balcony with plenty of room for dining and lounging.

Very clean and well stocked with everything you need for a relaxing vacation
I have spent several vacations in this condo on the beach. I have to say Terri NEVER disappoints! She thinks of everything to make your vacation a fun and relaxing one. Her kitchen has everything you need with many extras. She even stocks the kitchen with complimentary “fresh” coffee beans for you to enjoy every morning during your stay. All linens, towels, even beach towels are provided. You even have not one but two sets of beach chairs and two umbrellas waiting for you to enjoy the beautiful beach and salty water. I can’t say enough about this condo! We always have a relaxing and worry free trip here. We will not stay anywhere else! Excellent!
We had the pleasure of staying at Unit 612 recently and on a scale of 1 to 10---it is a 20!!!!!! From the moment we entered the door, we were greeted with cleanliness and beauty. The living room is so comfortable with a large screen tv, hundreds of movies, books, and games and plenty of seating. The kitchen- we normally have to take a good skillet because usually condo cookware is worn to nothing, well the Defoors have provided excellent, high quality cookware, glassware, and there is anything you can possibly imagine for a kitchen and in new condition. The gourmet coffee beans (grinder provided) and the welcome note and chocolates are such a special touch. They also provided napkins, paper towels, dish detergent and garbage bags for your entire stay. All bedrooms are beautifully decorated, have very nice tvs and comfortable beds. The baths are nicely appointed with lots of soft linens, bath salts, gels, make-up cleansing cloths, hairdryers and enough tissue for your entire stay. They even have 6 very large, monogrammed beach towels for your use. We have stayed in many very nice condos but the owners have added so many thoughtful touches to make you feel truly welcome. I do not know of anyone who has ever provided a well-stocked first aid kit and 2 baskets of items in case you forgot any toiletries or personal items and a full bar of soap in each bath. They have. I love that when you check in you can get 4 beach chairs and they reserve them for your entire stay. No getting in line every day and waiting to reserve a chair. The balcony is extra nice with plenty of patio furniture and the bar height table and chairs are great for unobstructed views to that beautiful ocean and clean beach. We saw dolphins the first day. It was so easy to communicate with Terri, she answered any questions in just minutes. Thank you Defoor family for providing such a beautiful condo which made for a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We cannot wait to visit again.
The condo is everything you could want in a rental!! It is truly like your home away from home with tons of wonderful amenities. The best unit I have ever seen at the Azure...thanks for 6 wonderful years!! 💜
Beth and Bill
Thank you so much! We will miss you!
The BEST condo in Fort Walton Beach!!!
We had such a wonderful stay here. The owners thought of absolutely EVERYTHING to make us feel comfortable and happy. The condo is upscale and beautiful, the kitchen is great with wonderful cookware, there are big TVs with DVR, fun games, good books, DVDs, and an AMAZING balcony, (where we spent most of our time). The condo was immaculate and well-maintained, and just the attention to detail was impressive. We have been vacationing in FWB for 30 years, and this is definitely the BEST and FINEST we have ever stayed in. Thank you, Terri & DJay, for being such caring owners!
We are so happy you had such a great time at our condo! Our goal is to provide this kind of experience for our guests. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We look forward to having you back!
Relaxing Beach Getaway
Azure is located in an area we are familiar with and enjoy, but the things that set this condo apart are the extras provided by the owners. From the second beach umbrella/chairs to the fresh ground coffee, it is obvious that want you to enjoy your stay. They also left detailed instructions/information, and were available via email or cell phone, if needed. The view from the top floor, and the spacious balcony, would be hard to beat!
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at our condo, and hope you'll come back soon!
Very clean and lots of personal touches to make your stay easier.
Okaloosa Island is the perfect place to enjoy the sugar-white sands and crystal blue waters of the Gulf. The island is close to everything you need--grocery stores, movie theaters, shopping malls, marinas, and more. We have several restaurants to which you can walk or take a very short drive.
Destin is only six miles away, so you can go into the 'big city' any time. But the beaches on Okaloosa Island are much less crowded because all condo complexes are limited to six floors. We have no high-rises, where too many people are trying to share a small area of beach.
You also have the option of going the short distance into Ft Walton. There is a Publix grocery store less than a mile from the condo, and there are plenty of shopping and restaurant options without having to go into Destin.
Very close by, there are many options for you. You can go paddleboarding or use a kayak right from our beach. Or you can rent a jet ski or pontoon behind Fudpuckers very close by, or drive to the Destin Harbor (six miles) and rent them there. From the harbor, you can hop aboard a fishing boat and bring back some fish, then have a local restaurant cook your catch! You can also book a parasailing adventure at the harbor. Just down the road, you can try windsurfing, or just park your car and watch others try it.
Destin Harbor offers boutique shopping and several restaurants, including a sprawling Margaritaville, which opened last year. Almost every restaurant offers live music at different times. The harbor also has weekly fireworks and live music during the summer months. Be sure to check their website for more information.
The Gulfarium, which is just down the beach, is a fun place to see marine nature up close and personal. Watch dolphin and sea lion shows, enjoy the shallow pool full of small sea creatures that you can touch, laugh at the antics of the otters, and see gators, turtles, penguins, and many more sea and beach creatures. The Gulfarium is an affordable outing for all ages. You can go in the morning, leave for lunch at one of the beachside restaurants next door, and then go back for the afternoon.
Don't forget, there is also the option of lounging under a beach umbrella and doing nothing but enjoying the breeze and the gentle break of the waves. Enjoy a book, a nap, a stroll down the beach, or a salty and refreshing swim.
We hope you will come and experience Okaloosa Island this year! We offer the best, most well-furnished condo at Azure! You will walk in the door and be delighted, we promise!
