About Terri DeFoor

We are D. Jay and Terri DeFoor from Middle Georgia. We live about five hours away from our Okaloosa Condo. We have been married since 1977, and have three grown children.

Terri DeFoor purchased this condo in 2007

Why Terri DeFoor chose North West Florida

We bought our Azure condo for our 30th wedding anniversary. We toured several beautiful beach condos in the Destin and Fort Walton Beach area, and settled on this brand new property because we fell in love with its beauty and its wonderful location. We are close enough to Destin for dining and shopping there, but Okaloosa offers everything you need if you don't want to fight the summer traffic. We have great places to eat, the fishing pier, convenient shopping, jet ski and pontoon rentals close by. We are within walking distance to the Gulfarium, a great place to see dolphin, sea lions, and other sea creatures up close.

We had great fun working with a local decorator to coordinate furniture, decor, custom window treatments and bedding, and paint. I spent a couple of days creating the floral arrangements, which was a lot of fun. The upcoming summer will be our fourth rental season, and we have had nothing but positive comments from our guests.

This spring (2016), we will be painting walls and trim, re-doing floral arrangements, and a few more updates to keep everything fresh and wonderful! So we hope you'll come check us out in 2016!

What makes this condo unique

We love eating at Old Bay Steamer just across the street, and High Tide has the best steamed oysters and seafood gumbo. We have walked down the beach to eat at Floyd's Shrimp House next to the pier, and we have ordered Italian fare from Pranzo's close by.

Terri and Shelley (our daughter) finally made it to the Gulfarium, which is just down the beach. We had a great afternoon of watching the dolphins, seals, and sea lions. We took some great photos. I would recommend it for a nice relaxing outing. There isn't much offered in the way of food, but you can have your hand stamped, walk next door to eat, and go back in.

For our guests, we include two beach set-ups, which is four chairs and two umbrellas provided daily from March 1 to October 31 every year. We also include free local and domestic long distance land phone, free WIFI and wired internet, Bose stereo system with IPod dock in the living/dining area, beautiful decor, great bedding, roomy balcony with plenty of room for dining and lounging.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This wonderful condo unit is complete with everything you need. All utensils, linens, dishware, etc. are provided. The balcony is quite spacious with seating for 8 and a bar-height dining table, so you can enjoy a meal or snack while taking in an unobstructed view of the crystal blue ocean and sugar-white beach. The high-quality and luxurious furnishings of our condo make it rival the finest five-star hotel. Every bedroom and the living room is equipped with a flat screen tv and dvd player, and we have over 50 dvd titles to choose from. Treat yourself to luxury and convenience, right on the beach. Make your reservation today!

I have NEVER written a review, but couldn't pass the opportunity to write about PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing in this area for years and this condo is by far the best we have ever rented. It truly is home away from home. The owners have not forgotten one item, including "forgot your toothbrush?", no problem. There is a basket in the master bath for items you may have forgotten. They provide items that normally are not included in a rental such as 2 beach setups, paper products, laundry detergent, two extra beach chairs, beach towels, and the list goes on. The Azure is a luxury facility....no stairs to the beach, two pools and hot tubs, water splash pad for the children and workout facility. We have stayed at Azure on more than one occasion and this condo is by far the best on the property. During this stay, we had two other condos rented for family members and they did not begin to compare. Teri is delightful to work with. If you want a perfect place to spend time on the beautiful beach of Fort Walton, this absolutely is the place to stay!

Just got back from a wonderful trip to FWB! Not only was the weather perfect but this condo was the best by far that we have stayed in. We have been going to the Florida Panhandle for 25 years and nothing compares to Terri and DJay's place at Azure. They go above and beyond to make you feel special and to make your stay perfect. From the time we walked into the condo with the soft music and beautiful decor we knew we had picked the right place. This condo has a gorgeous view, the kitchen has EVERYTHING you need and then some, the bathrooms are well equipped with soap and special bath products, lovely towels and 6 huge beach towels. You name it and it is in this condo. Plus the 4 beach chair/2 umbrella set up everyday. We will be back and I am spreading the word!

Best of Azure

  • 5 of 5

After a 14 Hr. road trip....what a great place to arrive to! From the furnishings to the view & everything in between was awesome! Very spacious condo with an awesome deck to view the Gulf as well as the pool area. The 4 beach chair set that was included was the way to go. All the employees at this complex were very courteous. This location was a big plus to stay out of the heavy traffic Destin area, but close enough for a drive in when you wanted. Thanks DeFoor's for an awesome worry free stay this summer!

Absolutely the BEST condo and very caring owners!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at this lovely 6th floor condo and hearing the soothing music as we entered, I knew it was going to be a great week!! The attention to detail throughout on decorating, appliances, thick plush towels, and all the amenities the DeFoor's furnished made us know they are the best at Azure. We have stayed several times prior and the rooms were nice, but this was by far our best vacation here. I loved the furnished plush beach towels, hairdryers in all bathrooms, nice chocolates on the kitchen counter with a note from the DeFoor's telling us they hope we enjoy our week! The condo was very clean and is located right in the middle overlooking the pool with a beautiful view of the beach! The flat screen TV's in all rooms and even DVR in the living room and master were nice to have. There were dvd's and plenty of books to read. They even had Bath N Body shower gels and individual makeup remover pads in all bathrooms! The balcony was furnished with very nice furniture where you could sit for your morning coffee (coffee beans and a grinder were furnished by the DeFoor's) or eat lunch while overlooking the beautiful beach. We were arriving a few hours before actual check-in and Terri said she would like my number, so her cleaning lady could let me know when the condo was ready for us. That was so nice! I also liked having 2 sets of beach chairs and umbrellas. (nobody else has ever done that) I liked being able to contact the DeFoor's by text and the response was immediate. This is by far a 5 star condo and you will not be disappointed. Great job DeFoor's!! You are the best!

Okaloosa Island is the perfect place to enjoy the sugar-white sands and crystal blue waters of the Gulf. The island is close to everything you need--grocery stores, movie theaters, shopping malls, marinas, and more. We have several restaurants to which you can walk or take a very short drive.

Destin is only six miles away, so you can go into the 'big city' any time. But the beaches on Okaloosa Island are much less crowded because all condo complexes are limited to six floors. We have no high-rises, where too many people are trying to share a small area of beach.

You also have the option of going the short distance into Ft Walton. There is a Publix grocery store less than a mile from the condo, and there are plenty of shopping and restaurant options without having to go into Destin.

Very close by, there are many options for you. You can go paddleboarding or use a kayak right from our beach. Or you can rent a jet ski or pontoon behind Fudpuckers very close by, or drive to the Destin Harbor (six miles) and rent them there. From the harbor, you can hop aboard a fishing boat and bring back some fish, then have a local restaurant cook your catch! You can also book a parasailing adventure at the harbor. Just down the road, you can try windsurfing, or just park your car and watch others try it.

Destin Harbor offers boutique shopping and several restaurants, including a sprawling Margaritaville, which opened last year. Almost every restaurant offers live music at different times. The harbor also has weekly fireworks and live music during the summer months. Be sure to check their website for more information.

The Gulfarium, which is just down the beach, is a fun place to see marine nature up close and personal. Watch dolphin and sea lion shows, enjoy the shallow pool full of small sea creatures that you can touch, laugh at the antics of the otters, and see gators, turtles, penguins, and many more sea and beach creatures. The Gulfarium is an affordable outing for all ages. You can go in the morning, leave for lunch at one of the beachside restaurants next door, and then go back for the afternoon.

Don't forget, there is also the option of lounging under a beach umbrella and doing nothing but enjoying the breeze and the gentle break of the waves. Enjoy a book, a nap, a stroll down the beach, or a salty and refreshing swim.

We hope you will come and experience Okaloosa Island this year! We offer the best, most well-furnished condo at Azure! You will walk in the door and be delighted, we promise!
