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!

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 48” flat screen HDTV. 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.
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!!
