Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

We would love you to enjoy our luxury condo directly on the white sugar beaches of the Gulf of Mexico on Okaloosa Island. The spacious 1,654 sq ft unit is decorated with a Tuscany flair to reflect the Mediterranean ambiance of the Azure resort which was built in 2005. We previously owned two units at the Island Princess where we had been very happy for years - until we laid our eyes on the Azure!

* Saturday check-in/Check out

As soon as you drive onto the property you are immediately struck by the fact that this is not your typical beachy condo...this is an upscale, yet family oriented resort. From the large courtyard entrance with center fountain, to the luxurious lobby area, large covered walkways, large exercise room, two large pools, quality poolside furniture, beautiful landscaping, covered garage parking and premium beach setups (umbrellas and chairs) everything is first class. We supply 2 Beach Chairs and an Umbrella at no charge ($20.00/day savings to you!) everyday from March thru October! Just tell the guys on the beach where you wish to have them set up for you each day!

As you walk into our condo you are greeted by a quaint entry way with a Palazzo table leading to a sconce lit hallway with artwork to link the Palm Tree theme with the Tuscany styling of the unit. The tiled hallway leads you to your home for the week where you will enjoy a well appointed Master Bedroom with King Sized Bed, glamour bath and Gulf Views; Two Queen Size Bedrooms with attached Full Baths, a cozy Den with TV and Queen Sofa Bed. The Open Living Area offers a Large Kitchen, Dinette, Granite Breakfast Bar and Living Room with a wide view of the Gulf of Mexico. One of the things our guests love about our condo is the fact that two people can sleep in the den so that you don't need to deal with anyone sleeping in the Living Room. You'll love our Den!

All the bedrooms offer plenty of closet and drawer space to store your clothes. The Master is especially convenient with an extra large armoire and His and Her closets. Assuming that you check in close to dinner time you might want to spend a little time to check out the grounds, the pool and the beach and then head out to one of the many restaurants on Okaloosa Island or over in Destin which is just 10 minutes away. For the sports enthusiasts either Anglers or Johnny O'Quigly's are good choices to watch just about any game you are interested in. We like to start our week at Anglers where the food is good, the bartenders are friendly and the pier is right there for a nice stroll.

Once you get back to the condo you may want to relax on our comfortable living room furniture watching a 37' flat screen HDTV. Feel free to set the kids up in the den to watch their favorite shows as well. You'll love our Private Den! Eventually you will want to retire to the King Size bed in the Master to watch TV, look at the Gulf or get some sleep. We are huge fans of very comfortable pillow top mattresses. You will not be disappointed!

When you wake up in the morning you will be able to take advantage of the large Master Bath with Jacuzzi tub, marble tiled shower and double sink granite counter top with permanently installed hair dryers. There is a private commode tucked away in a little room off the bathroom. For the early risers you can have your coffee (set the timer the night before and your coffee will be ready when you wake up) on the large 8x20 private covered balcony where you can watch the sunrise (in the off season) and look for dolphins swimming past the condo.

Fix yourself a nice breakfast or lunch in our well-appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Take advantage of the large pantry to store your goodies. The dining room table fits six adults comfortably with room left over to squeeze in some kids. If you have an extra large group there are four counter height chairs to handle the overflow. The large table is also great for cards or board games! If you need to do a little laundry you will be pleased with the full size washer and dryer in the unit continently set apart in the Laundry Room off the main hallway. Bring your Laptop, we have Ethernet and Wi-fi.

One of our favorite things to do is to go spend a few hours at the pool in the morning where we alternate from reading a book, yacking with friends, taking a swim, relaxing in the spa and then taking a short beach walk to get a great grouper sandwich and cold one. Queue the island music please!

After lunch there is still plenty of time for lots of other entertainment choices around Okaloosa Island and Destin. Golfers bring the clubs - there is a wide range of golf courses that range from a decent muny course in Fort Walton Beach to a very upscale course at Kelly's Plantation. Of course you have all the usual fun things for the kids, Dolphin Cruises, Miniature Golf or Pontoon & Jet Ski Rentals, etc! Do a Google on Fort Walton Beach and Destin to get an idea about everything that is around.

Whatever you decide to do we hope you are blessed with a beautiful vacation on the beach!!

Your Friends,

Carol and Fritz Nagel

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was as pictured. This condo & the entire property were very clean and well maintained. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook for our family. My husband & I , our daughter and husband, our son & wife, and our three grandchildren ages 7, 5 & 2 had plenty of room. The 7 & 5 year old really liked having their own sleeping space on the fold out couch in the den. It is an easy walk to elevators and on to the beach or to the parking area. There are very nice gas grills near the parking area, too. The pools are huge, clean, and beautiful. The sand on the beach was like powdered sugar! We would love to spend more time here.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A group of 6 of us (3 couples) stayed at 502 Azure for the second year in a row and have already reserved it for the same week in 2018. This property is beautiful and spacious and the view of the beach and Gulf is amazing. We were there while hurricane Irma was threatening the Gulf Coast of Florida and Fred checked in on us several times to make sure everything was okay. Happy to say, we only had one day of light rain and wind. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a beach getaway.

Perfect Destin Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation. The condo was the perfect size for our party of 10. Our four children loved having the den room as their bedroom. It was perfect! The ocean view was beautiful to wake to each morning and being on the fifth floor gave an awesome view. The parking garage had plenty of spaces available and was easily accessible from our condo. There was also an elevator located across from our entrance door. The two pools were huge and very clean and there were plenty of lounge chairs. The only drawback was the water was extremely cold. It was freezing and remained a frigid temperature, day and night, our entire stay. We really enjoyed the use of the hot tub which was also kept very clean and the temp was perfect. From the putt-putt golf and delicious unique flavors of ice cream across the street, to the beach chairs ready for us every morning when we woke, to the condo and it's amenities, and the super nice exercise room equipped with three treadmills, two ellipticals, two spin bikes (all very high quality) and all of the gym equipment needed for a complete lifting workout.....our stay was perfect. Even the trash shoot was located only a few yards away (and in it's own self-contained room) which we found to be one of our most used conveniences. I would highly recommend this condo for all of the reasons and many more. If we go back to Destin, this will be the first condo we check for availability.

Really a great condo! Best we've stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Best condo yet. We've stayed in 5 or 6 from Panama City to Pensacola.

Called a 3 bedroom but the 4th den with the bunk beds give more individual room. The view from the 5th floor balcony is beautiful. A real plus is parking in the garage. it's nice getting into a car not in the sun. Two large pools. We would go back in a heart beat.

Fritz is a great owner to work with.
