* PARKING:  Two Parking Passes one reserved covered parking slip located directly under our unit large enough for an extended Suburban or full-size van* (If you are unable to take the stairs, two elevators service the parking garage)

What makes Blu unique besides being brand new is it is on the quiet end of the island directly on the Gulf of Mexico with over 300 feet of private gulf-front living.  We share all this beach with only 46 other unit owners.  Our resort amenities to unit doors will be the best on the island offering two large pools, one zero entry, a beachside fire pit, huge hot tub, state of the art fitness center, gated security, and professional grilling area.  This will be the least crowded condominium with amenities within 30 miles in either direction on the beach!

Our unit is an expansive 1836 square feet of heated and cooled space.  We have a huge gourmet kitchen with an oversized dining area and eat in bar which accommodates thirteen!  This flows to an oversized living room complete with a 65" 4K Roku Smart TV.  We have three large bedrooms each accommodating king beds with on suite baths.  The master bath has a massive custom spa shower that is approximately six feet by five feet with three shower heads including a spa like rain head shower and built in marble seat! 

In addition, we have turned the media room into a fourth bedroom with a queen over queen custom bunk bed that will have the kids fighting over who gets to sleep on the bunk beds!  This room also has direct access to the oversized third bathroom for convenience which has two sinks.  To make sure everyone keeps clean clothes during the week we have an oversized laundry room with full size washer and dryer.  Finally, maybe the best part is we are 15 feet above sea level preserving the best ground floor view of any unit on Okaloosa Island while allowing for direct walk out to the pool and beach from our oversized patio complete with dining for six!

What we are truly excited about is our guest can go from the serenity of the quiet side of Okaloosa Island to all that is offered on the island Wild Willy's, The Gulf, The Gulfarium, and the Boardwalk is a short 2-mile walk or drive.  Just past that is the excitement of downtown Fort Walton along with the Publix, only 2.5 miles away, or you can check out all that Destin Harbor and Harbor Walk Village has to offer a short 7-mile drive away!

**RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATIONS**

On the Island:  (Walking Distance)
The best restaurant is Old Bay Steamer, it is a bit pricey but excellent.  We love the atmosphere of The Gulf, this is a container ship restaurant located outside the kids will play for hours.  Stewby’s is great for fresh fish at a “value” price.  Fubar is on the water a bit like a dive college bar, but they have solid bar food and pizza with live music.  At the boardwalk our favorite location with a view of the ocean is Rockin Taco, food is good the view is fantastic!  Rick’s on the island has excellent gumbo, they use cheese grits in instead of rice!

Downtown FWB: (Less than 2.5 miles away)

We love the vibe of downtown FWB.  It is sort of like a college bar hits a gritty arts scene.  They have about 15 restaurants that are all walkable.  KC’s Sandbar usually has live music outside in the sand during season with solid wings and a huge beer selection.  We love Taste for tapas.  The Boardroom and Cowhead have great sandwiches, too!  Alis Bistro is solid Italian with a nice happy hour.  They also have food trucks, my wife loves Parlor Doughnuts.  Maas coffee roasters has excellent coffee! 

You should check for activities and festivals, too.  The farmers market is the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 8 AM to 1 PM.  Finally a bit past downtown in FWB is The Bavarian's Wirtshaus, this is an authentic German restaurant that our friend from Europe says is a close as it gets to the real deal.

Destin Area Restaurants:  (8 to 10 miles away)

  • McGuires
  • Louisiana Lagniappe
  • Brotulas
  • Donut Hole

**HOW DO I SEE YOUR OTHER UNITS? (Over 250 reviews 4.5+ out of 5 stars)**

Destin/Fort Walton Beach, FL:  Waterscape: VRBO #318211 / BLU:  VRBO 1683570  / Azure: VRBO #475054 / Destin West: VRBO #745692 & 2611564

 *As Blu's HOA only issues two parking passes per unit (don't believe anyone should they say otherwise), having a dedicated covered spot you know you can use is helpful especially on hot summer days or should it be raining outside!  We can issue a parking spot at one of our other resorts on the island should you need a third spot.

**Please keep the login that is set up for Netflix and Disney Plus as it can not be logged into remotely.  If someone has overridden the system we are not able to update during your stay, but you are welcome to use your own account.**

 

 

 

It was always my mom's dream to own a condo in Fort Walton Beach. My wife and I adopted this dream and were fortunate to make it come true. We were blessed to be able to purchase units during the downturn in the market. After seeing this could actually become a business for our family we purchased additional units Each year we improve on our ability to deliver a solid vacation experience for our guest. It is my sincere desire to be a small part of your families vacation memory making experience!
