Property description

Wow, do we have the perfect beach condo for you! We took no shortcuts when furnishing this gorgeous vacation place. Our goal is to provide the best in comfort and beauty for your well-deserved beach vacation. We have top-line bedding to assure one of the best night’s sleep you’ve had anywhere. You will be surrounded by custom decorated rooms and a kitchen fit for a chef with all the basics and many extras. Watch the dolphins and rays from our balcony, where you will enjoy a direct view of the crystal blue gulf from our bar-height table and chairs, or curl up with a book on one of the corner lounge chairs and listen to the waves.

On a rainy afternoon, or while relaxing in the evening, watch a movie from one of four wall-mounted flat screen tvs. The living room tv is a huge 46”, and in the master is a 40”. We have more than 130 new and classic DVD titles for your enjoyment. We also have several like-new board games and puzzles.

When you get ready to head to the beach, we have quite a treat for you! Included in our price is daily beach service: 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas! (We believe we are the only Azure condo unit that includes 2 beach sets.)

We even provide you with fresh coffee beans and a grinder for a perfect start to every morning!

We have had many guests who have become repeat clients, and they tell us that we have the nicest beach condo they have ever stayed in! That means we did what we set out from the beginning to do. Be sure to check out our great reviews! Pleasing our guests is always our number one goal. Please come see for yourself!

Our beautiful condo also has:

*A Bose stereo system in the living/dining room, with an iPod dock that is adaptable to any size iPod.

*Free local and long distance phone service.

*Corner Jacuzzi tub in the large master bath.

*Bathroom for each bedroom.

*Sleeper sofa in the living room, bedding provided.

*Plenty of plush toweling.

And so much more! Come visit beautiful Okaloosa Island! Email us today for more information on the best beach condo on the island!

Car: Recommended

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!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Fort Walton Beach, FL, USA:
We bought our Azure condo for our 30th wedding anniversary. 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. The upcoming summer will be our fourth rental season, and we have had 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!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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 with IPod dock in the living/dining area, beautiful decor, great bedding, roomy balcony with plenty of room for dining and lounging.
