* PARKING: Two Parking Passes one reserved covered parking slip located directly under our unit large enough for an extended Suburban or full-size van*

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!

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

*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 do not change password, you will be subject to a fee should it be determined you have changed the password. If a guest has changed the password Netflix & Disney Plus will not work for free. Should it have been changed please alert us so that we may reset in as timely a manner as possible.

We stayed a week in blu 102 and it was one of the best vacations we have been on. The condo is amazing. Walk right out to the pool and ocean. Everything was clean and new just as it says. We will definitely be staying here again.

Best week at the beach ever!    Sep 17, 2019

This unit was fabulous! Tastefully decorated and adequately stocked. The location is great, the unit is on the first floor and steps away from the beach. My daughters and I want to go back to Blu 102! Thank you for an amazing, relaxing vacation.

We absolutely loved our stay and this was our first time to this area. The owner was great to work with and very responsive. The location was perfect and close to everything. It was wonderful being on the ground floor with easy access to the pool and beach. Hope to come back next year
