Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our first floor family friendly condo at Azure is the ideal vacation spot. With easy and direct access to the pool and beach and great views of the emerald waters of the Gulf, this place has it all.

Our beautiful 3 bdrm 3 bath condo is ideal for families. This beachfront property is meticulously landscaped and designed with 2 large pools (one heated seasonally), 2 hot tubs and a water spray area just for the kids. Our 1st floor unit has the perfect location -- walk directly out to the pool or beach with no stairs or elevators needed! We know how hard it is to travel with young children so we've made it as easy as possible. We have a high chair, booster seats, a stroller, rails for the lower bunks, and a pack and play. We even have a baby monitor so you can sit by the pool and listen for your little one during nap time.

Our unit has 2 bdrms with king beds and spacious baths. The kids' room has 2 sets of bunk beds with a fun beach mural to liven things up and their own bathroom with sea turtles and sea horses swimming on the walls. Our kitchen is well supplied and a joy to use - where else can you make dinner as you watch the waves roll in? Our kids enjoy playing on our large fenced patio and we love to sit there and watch the island's not to be missed sunsets.

Our goal is to have you enjoy our place as much as we do!

About Kim Johnson

Our family of five loves to travel and enjoys our time on the beach. We enjoy finding ''out of the way'' places that don't attract huge crowds so Okalossa Island was love at first site. The zoning controls prevent high rise buildings on the island so we never have masses of people on the beach as in Panama City or Destin. Ft Walton offers us everything we need but Destin is a beautiful 6 mile drive if we feel the need for more activity.

Kim Johnson purchased this condo in 2004

Why Kim Johnson chose Florida Main North West

My family and I feel in love with Okalossa Island in 1999 and looked for some time for the perfect place to vacation there. When we saw the plans for Azure, we knew we'd found it. The pools are wonderful, the pool deck is lovely and relaxing, the architecture is unique, and the unit interiors are beautifully done. We bought the unit in the preconstruction phase so that we were able to finish it as we wanted. We put a lot of time and effort into creating the ideal family friendly unit. We love the condo and enjoy having others feel the same about it.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite feature of our condo is it's location. We love being on the first floor so that we can just walk directly out to the pool and beach without using the stairs or elevators. We can make lunch in the kitchen and watch our kids in the play in the pool -- or watch dolphin jumping in the Gulf.

Owner's Response: Wow Misty! Thank you so much for your kind words. You and your family were wonderful guests and I hope this is the first visit of many. I agree that our beaches are the BEST -- white sand, blue water, and not wall to wall people! I'm so glad you loved the condo too. I work hard to keep it top notch for our guests. Please come again!

Delightful place and host!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Azure 105 was delightful! Azure is well-kept, centrally located, and conveniently designed. The beach is gorgeous, and the Azure pools are lovely. Kim Johnson is an excellent host, so easy to work with, and 105 is comfortable and attractive. We enjoyed our second year stay even more than our first.

We had a great time at this property. The facilities at Azure are fantastic. Only downside was there was a lot of seaweed in the ocean.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My family had the greatest time while staying at Azure 105. The condo was very clean, spacious enough for all 7 of us, beautifully decorated and we had everything we ever needed for our week together. The first floor condo made things even easier. The beach chairs and umbrella's came in very handy for those hot and sunny days. We are planning to go back again next year and can not wait.

First Time Okaloosa Islanders

  • 5 of 5

I want to start this review off by first stating that the rental itself and dealing with Kim was amazing and I would highly recommend! We had four adults, two children and plenty of room. This was a condo where you felt like you were at home right when you walked in the door and it didn't feel like it was just a place you had to deal with for a week while you had fun doing other things. You can tell that a lot of care was taken when furnishing this condo because everything from the furniture to the kitchen countertops were top-notch, which is rare for a condo. No wicker furniture or glass-top tables here. It was nice to be able to step right through your patio gate and you were right there at the pool. When we first arrived I was afraid that the pool area was going to be way too loud, but it wasn't at all. And did I mention how amazing Kim was to work with? She really knows how to take care of her people! If I were to have any complaints, it would be that other condo owners don't hold their condos to the same standards as Kim. I appreciate Kim keeping her condo smoke-free, but apparently other owners don't do the same thing and if you're not a smoker, you know how strong that smell can be when it wafts by you. And, the hot tub was roped off the day we arrived and was never available for the entire trip. This didn't affect our trip, but it does concern me that a place as nice as Azure would not get something like that rectified as soon as possible. I believe that the hot tub malfunction had something to do with the pool being a lot colder after that first day. Again, these aren't complaints towards Kim's condo, just observations on Azure and other condo owners who don't have the same standards as Kim. Finally, if you really want to appreciate this area, just drive on over to Destin and see how crowded the beach can really be and you will appreciate the beach chair and umbrella rentals Kim provides for you the length of your stay. Great owners, great condo, great vacation!!!

Owner's Response: Wow! You just made my day with your comments about the condo. :-) I do work hard to have it be a home away from home and not ''just a rental'' so I'm really happy to hear that it shows. I agree that smoking around the pool isn't good and the Board at Azure just made the entire pool deck smoke free and hired a pool attendant to be sure that is maintained. I had no idea one of the hot tubs wasn't working! That's something that is usually handled FAST so it must have been a major problem. If you ever have an issue like that again, please let me know so that I can get on the phone! I hope you'll come again! You were great guests!

Our condo is located on Okalossa Island just 6 miles from Destin. Okalossa Island is a low density area with no high rises (nothing higher than 60ft), no traffic jams (I'm talking about you, Destin), and no throngs of people packed on the beach. It's a family friendly area with the most beautiful beaches in the country.
