About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This spectacular Gulf Front view is a once in a lifetime experience that is sure to provide you with a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The view from this condo is to die for! You can spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week basking in this breathtaking view of our beautiful Emerald Green Waters and Snow White Sandy Beaches. Travel all over the world and you will never find a snow-white sandy beach as beautiful as this! It has been said that you can see dolphins traveling in schools in the water throughout the day. Bring your binoculars and find yourself up close and personal with "flipper". All this can take place without you even leaving the condo. Sit on the balcony in the early morning sipping your coffee, and end the day sitting on the balcony enjoying a cocktail. Either way, you leave your worries behind and become entranced in nature, with all the luxuries of a five star resort.

By far and away, this is our most favorite place to spend our time. As often as possible we escape to the condo to relax, enjoy the beach and create memories with family and friends. For us, this is a slice of heaven. Sharing this gorgeous getaway with friends and family is an experience you will never forget. It certainly is our favorite thing to do and we hope it will be yours as well.

Our condo is just steps away from the beach. Avail yourself to the private path that leads you to your own private beach. Going from condo to beach is less than a 2 minute walk. Your options are limitless. You can enjoy the view of the beach from the condo any time, day or night. If you are so inclined, you can meander down to the beach. In doing so, you may become sidetracked by the two beautiful pools that you will find just outside the condo. Both pools have a fantastic hot tub that may be calling your name. In addition to the pools and hot tubs, there is also a children's water play area that will attract the little people. This is certainly a family friendly location!

If you decide to resist the lure of the pools, hot tubs and children's area and continue onto the beach you will find a complimentary beach service at your command. As a gift from us to you, there will be two chairs and an umbrella all set up and waiting for you to relax.

In our condo you will find three extremely comfortable bedrooms with each having its own private bathroom. What a convenient and private way to allow yourself to unwind. There is a master bedroom where you will find a king size bed and a gulf view. Off the master bedroom there is a glorious master bathroom with its own private Jacuzzi, twin sinks, tiled shower and private toilet area. The second bedroom has a spacious king size bed also with its own private bathroom. The third bedroom has a queen size bed with a twin bunk above and a trundle below. Of course, there is a private bathroom off this bedroom as well. Lastly there is a queen size pull out sofa bed that can be found in the living room if needed. In all, the condo sleeps ten people very comfortably.

Needless to say, fresh, clean linens are provided for your convenience and comfort. I promise you that this will be a vacation you will be talking about for years to come. Without a doubt it is an experience of a lifetime!

About John D. Bowers

We are a happily married couple with three adult professional sons. John owns an Irish Pub call Mullarkeys which is located in Downtown Willoughby, Ohio. Eileen is the Director of Student Services at Willoughby-Eastlake School District.

Our hobbies include reading, taking long walks together and, of course, spending time at the condo. Not only is this a great place to share with family and friends, it is also a great "hide out" when the hustle and bustle of life begins to cave in on you.

John D. Bowers purchased this condo in 2005

Why John D. Bowers chose Florida Main North West

The first time we visited Okaloosa Island was love at first sight. The Island affords you all the tranquility you can expect from an Island. In contrast, the nightlife and action of Destin and Downtown Fort Walton Beach is nearby. This location provides you with the best of both worlds.

If you are traveling by air, the Fort Walton Beach Airport is an easy ten-minute drive from the condo. With air travel, you also have the option of flying into the Pensacola Airport, which is only 40 minutes from the condo. If you are traveling by land, the freeways are easily accessible and within minutes of the condo as well.

The Mediterranean decorative style you will find at the Azure building is unique and in a class of its own. As you pull into the building and are greeted by a magnificent fountain you know instantly that this is the place you were meant to be. It is absolutely someplace special.

What makes this condo unique

You will find the condo luxuriously appointed. It is furnished with state of the art stainless steel appliances, updated beautiful granite counter tops, and a fully furnished kitchen. The kitchen comes equipped with a full set of serving pieces and a serving setting for 12 people. In addition, there is a full service laundry room with a washer, dryer, ironing board and iron. In the living rooms and bedrooms you will find flat screen TVs. The bathrooms are equipped with fresh towels and a sample pack of toiletries to get you started. For your convenience, we have installed hair dryers in each bathroom. That's one less thing you need to travel with. Upon booking with us we will provide you with a contact person on location who will be available should issues arise. Additionally you will be given a keyless entry that is not only safe, but also convenient.

The condo is surrounded by a wide array of restaurants. Tired of driving? There are quality restaurants within walking distance of the condo. If you want to explore the area, there are even more just a short drive away. Take your pick.

Of course there is the option of eating in. If this is your pleasure, there is a grocery store just minutes away over the bridge.

The location of the condo is near opportunities for boating, golfing, fishing, snorkeling, motorized water sports and sailing. Just name your pleasure and it can be your reality instantly.

For your convenience there is a secured, covered parking garage available. Since our condo is on the second floor, you can walk from car to condo under cover, without accessing the elevator.

Additionally there is a BBQ area on the Azure building grounds for your use.

Lastly, there is a state of the art exercise room available to you. Burn off a few calories here and enjoy the rest of your day, guilt free!!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as depicted (which I have found is rare). John is very easy to contact and work with. The property is very convenient and well kept. The location is very nice for staying out of the brunt of the tourist traffic, but close to everything in the Ft Walton/ Destin area. We will surely stay again.

Comfortable and well located

  • 4 of 5

Condo was comfortable and very clean and smelled wonderful when we walked in. In fact the entire property was clean and well mantained. Azure 203 is exactly as pictured in the site.

The owner was very friendly and responded to us immediately. We did have a problem with the code to enter condo but that was resolved within minutes.

I was pleased to find the condo stocked with plenty of clean towels and wash cloths. The view from patio was awesome!!! We were able to see dolphins every morning. The property was also close to restaurants, markets etc. and a short drive to Destin if you wanted a little more action.

The only negative comment is the patio furniture could use a bit of an upgrade. The chairs showed wear and some off the cushions were a little torn.

All in all we would definitely return to Azure 203 in the future.

Great spot for families!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying in Azure 203. The owner and property manager are always so easy to work with and accommodating. The location is perfect so you can easily bounce from the pool to the beach and back. We go with a large group of friends and all of our kids and everyone has a blast! We will be back!

Everything was as pictured. The balcony was plenty big, with lots of seating available. Awesome ❤️

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the second week of August 2017 and will definitely go back! The condo was perfect. Plenty of rooms and personal space for everyone. We traveled with our two teens and my parents. Everyone had a room, their own beds and bathrooms. We loved the balcony! It's real big and had plenty of seating for everyone to hang out and watch the fireworks on the boardwalk! Fort Walton Beach was easy to get around in. Plenty of stores and restaurants close by to the condo. Condo was perfect, an overall wonderful family vacation!

Nice room

  • 4 of 5

If you're staying at Azure, this is a really nice room. I visited 3 others while there, and preferred 203 the most. Comfy beds. Spacious. Everything we needed. Nice view that you won't get from the first floor, but not too far of a walk to pool or beach.
