Property description

Thank you for your interest in our family's beachfront condo. Take advantage of our 'local' knowledge and let us help you get the most from your vacation dollar. We want to be your vacation hosts, not just somebody you rent from. Now a little about our home away from home. And by the way - unlike a lot of folks, we constantly keep our calendars up to date so you can always see exactly what's available. We do not allow any pets or smoking (not even on the patio or grounds)

There is a place where the clear blue sky meets the crystal clear sea, blending together in blues so startling and at the same time calming, it’s a place called Azure. Azure is Okaloosa Island’s newest Mediterranean-styled resort located on 600 feet of sparkling white sand and emerald waters. This gulf coast paradise offers Mediterranean architecture with unprecedented amenities.

From the moment you enter the Italian piazza you’ll know you have found something extraordinary. Azure is here for discriminating people who want only the best in a vacation experience with no hassle of a crowded high-rise. With only six floors, Azure offers a more intimate vacation experience.

Vacation pleasures abound, championship golf, fine restaurants, spectacular shopping, sport fishing, scuba diving, parasailing, jet skis, and amusement parks, or just make new tracks in the sand. Whatever you choose, Azure is both your enchanting host and your luxurious sanctuary. Walk to the boardwalk on the beach with lots of restaurants, game arcades, beach shops, lounges, discos and the Gulfarium.

Situated off Hwy 98 on Santa Rosa Boulevard, Azure is convenient to the popular highways that connect the southeast to the Gulf. With great access and a premier Gulf-front address, Azure is easy to reach and a pleasure to enjoy and only four miles from Destin.

Located beachfront, unit 117 is beautifully decorated. Enjoy the private patio with a beautiful ocean view right next to both pools, hot tubs, and the water spray area. The condo features four bedrooms and three baths laundry room and upscale kitchen. The king master bedroom has two closets, a salon-style bath with Jacuzzi, walk in shower, great gulf views and 50' smart tv/blu-ray. The fourth bedroom is great for the kids with its 34' TV and children's video library, yet has beds large enough for adults. The other two bedrooms feature queen beds and 40 inch t.v.'s as well as their own bathrooms. The living room has a comfy sofa, and big leather chairs as well as a 50' plasma TV and over 125 dvd's for your enjoyment.

Furnished with upgraded stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, and everything else you may need in the gourmet kitchen, you will definitely feel at home away from home. And of course you'll enjoy complimentary Wireless Internet Access. In fact, we are hoping you will love our beautiful condo as much as we do and will make it your home-away-from-home for many years to come. We try to think of everything so you don't have to think of anything.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Pat and Emily

Location

8 Miles
Nearest Airport
Destin - Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS)
Okaloosa Island, FL, USA
Nearest Beach
just step out the door-you couldn't be any closer!

Car: Recommended

Besides being located on 600+ feet of the country's most beautiful beach you are within walking distance of the fishing pier, multiple restaurants, the Gulfarium and shopping. Try walking to Anglers, the Crab Trap, or The Black Pearl for dinner and timing it so you walk back into the most spectacular sunset you can imagine.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We've owned condos in Destin for better than 15 years now and live only a little over 2 hours away. This allows us to come in and inspect them regularly to make sure our housekeepers are keeping our units in the condition we would expect if we were staying in them. We also take care of all the things that cannot be tended to during the brief transition (cleaning) period between guests. We try to think of everything so you can think of nothing. We also have a good knowledge of the area and love sharing 'local' info on things like restaurants, directions, golf course recommendations/deals and even what is the best night to go to the movie. We like to host people, not just rent to them. Thanks for your interest, Pat and Emily Brown

Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
We like the idea of the building heighth restriction on Okaloosa Island (6 stories) so the beaches aren't ever very crowded. Plus being on the east end of Santa Rosa boulevard, it is convenient to everything. Several restaurants and stores are within walking distance

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This unit is perfectly located in the building. First floor walkout convenience, but not located poolfront. You don't open your drapes and see the back of peoples heads or hear the noise associated with being poolfront, but it is just steps away. We hardly ever have anyone walk past our patio. And we get to look out across the green lawn to the white sand and emerald green water.
