Description

1st Floor Oceanfront Condo w/ Free Beach Service!

Welcome to Octopus Garden, your new home away from home!  Our first-floor, family friendly, oceanfront condo at Azure is the ideal vacation spot. Walk right out your door to the gorgeous views of the emerald Gulf coast waters!
Our beautiful 3-bedroom, 3-bath condo is ideal for families. This beachfront property is meticulously landscaped and designed with 2 large pools (one heated seasonally), two hot tubs and a splash pad 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! Plus, we've made traveling with kids 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. And yes, it even reaches to the hot tub so you can relax in the hot tub after they are asleep!

Two of the bedrooms feature king-size beds and spacious baths while the kids' room has 2 sets of bunk beds with a fun beach mural to liven things up, plus their own bathroom. 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 where we love to sit and watch Okaloosa Island's can’t-miss sunsets. 

A beautiful condo and instant access to the pool and a gorgeous beach on your doorstep, this spacious home is perfect for your family.  We welcome you to our home and want to do everything we can to make your stay enjoyable.  Our goal is to have you enjoy our place as much as we do!

ABOUT US:
My name is Virginia and my husband is Randy.  We have five children ranging from 20 years old down to 1 year old twins.  We purchased the property at the end of 2020 as a place to make priceless family memories by the sea!  We named it the Octopus Garden because just as an octopus makes their little slice of paradise by putting a garden of shells and coral outside of their lairs, so have we!  We have put our heart and soul into making this ocean home a slice of paradise, and you will find some coral and shells around the place too!

You may notice we don’t have many reviews yet, and we can’t wait for you to review us!  Hospitality and the guest experience are vital to our business… it helps us continue renting the place to great families like yours! We will go above and beyond to make your stay amazing.  So please review us to help our future guests know how wonderful your stay was at the Octopus Garden.

Perfect Family Vacation    May 05, 2021

review star

Hands down the nicest condo we have ever stayed in. We would give this place 10 stars if we could. We are already booking it again for next year. If you have young children this is the perfect place. We were able to put our 3 and 1 year old down for naps/bed while we sat by the pool with monitors….and drinks. Steps away from the pool and beach. The Skrunk family will make sure it’s the best vacation you can have. Why stay anywhere else when this is the prefect place! Thank you to the Skrunk family! We can’t wait to come back!

The best unit at Azure    May 01, 2021

review star

We have been coming to Okaloosa island since 2012. We will never stay anywhere ever again. We are going to be Yearly guest, maybe even more than one stay a year. The condo is great, beautiful, and a perfect location. The Strunk family are the nicest people you will ever deal with. If I was you…. I would stop looking and go ahead and book this one. You won’t regret it!!!!!!!!!

A Great Beach Condo!    Apr 24, 2021

review star

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Octopus Garden. It was clean, nicely decorated, and SO convenient for enjoying the pool and beach with young children. The condo is literally steps away from the heated pool so it was easy to run into the condo from the pool for snacks, bathroom, sunscreen application, etc. The beach was beautiful and we had chairs and an umbrella already set up for us. The condo is spacious with two king beds, so we could invite the grandparents along. It was also convenient to many good places to eat and activities like putt-putt for the kids. The fact that they provided a pack n play, high chair, baby monitor, and beach chairs/toys really helped us have a lighter load to pack as well. I highly recommend it!

Loved our stay    Apr 10, 2021

review star

The Octopus Garden is an amazing vacation stay. It is clean, fresh and well decorated. Amazing access to the pool and beach. We loved the ability to hop down to the beach whenever or be back at the pool. The condo had everything we needed from a well stocked kitchen, child friendly items, comfortable bedding and more. We loved every part of it and felt so well taken care of from the owners.

Outstanding Vacation Retreat    Mar 29, 2021

review star

The Octopus Garden is a vacation destination for the whole family! From the convenient pool and beach access with this first floor condo to the little touches from the owners to make everyone feel at home - our stay here was a family vacation to remember! The condo was clean, spacious, and comfortable, beautifully decorated and outfitted with a fully functional kitchen and plenty of seating for a large family. The white, sandy beach is clean, well-kept, and holds fun for all ages from beach chairs to volleyball. The local eats — including tasty food just across the street kept us coming back for more! This was our first trip to the Octopus Garden, and it definitely won’t be our last!

Family vacation heaven    Mar 15, 2021

review star

This was the first time my husband and I have gone on vacation with our toddler that we actually were able to relax. The Octopus Garden is perfectly equipped for families and is perhaps the best location to enjoy the pool and beach from. The proximity from the pool/beach to the condos patio simply could not be beat. It was super easy to run back and forth and meet all my toddlers demands. The condo was clean, had a well equipped kitchen, and very comfortable beds. We felt very relaxed and at home here. The beach is so beautiful with its white sand, the beach service was on point setting up fun patterns with umbrellas every day, and never crowded. The hot tub was awesome- especially since we had the monitor at night. I wish I could use a hot tub every night before bed. We slept like babies. Thank you Strunk’s for making this a vacation to remember!

Luxury Retreat w/ All Amenities - Perfect for Families!    Mar 06, 2021

review star

This is the way to vacation! Steps from pools, hot tubs, splash pad, and the beach/ocean just beyond a minutes walk away. Beach views from the kitchen. Perfect sandy beaches - umbrella and chairs set up daily. Virginia and Randy have provided it all. Their place is spacious, pristine, and equipped with everything you could need (board games, movies, beach toys, high chair, bunk beds, baby monitor) It was a stress-free, rejuvenating and relaxing time away for us, and we can't wait to go back. This is the way to vacation! Highly recommend!!

Great family spot!    Mar 01, 2021

review star

Octopus Garden was absolutely the perfect spot for our family of 6 to get away during the pandemic. The condo and location are beautiful and clean, and furnished with everything we needed, including a high chair, baby monitor, and beach toys! It was great for our older kids, who could head out to the beach or pool on their own while we relaxed on the patio with the toddler, who could be kept contained but happy. :) We had so much fun!! Virginia and Randy bend over backwards to make sure your stay is perfect!

Perfect family vacation spot!    Dec 26, 2020

We LOVED our time at Octopus Garden. It was spacious for our family of four and had every amenity we needed and then some! Loved that we could walk right out to the heated pool and hot tub and easily walk to the beach. Virginia is a thoughtful, excellent host. We can’t wait to go back!
