  • The great escape

    "There is nothing like getting to your destination after a long drive and it was well worth it! Condo was clean and tastefully decorated. It had everything you could possibly think of. Kitchen was fully loaded and made mealtime a breeze. Best part was the swimming pool. It was literally 10 steps from our backdoor. My kids loved the fact that they were able to wake up and get dressed in their swimsuits. I loved the fact that I was within arms reach while still enjoying my cup of coffee on the back patio.The condo is right on the beach. Kids were able to play in the beautiful white sand and enjoyed walking along the shore watching the sunset. Beaches are clean and well maintain. Waking up in the morning with the sea breeze coming into the condo created the right environment for a relaxing vacation to set your own pace. Great location, lots of things to do as a family or group and surrounded by great restaurants . If it was up to me I would make this our yearly family trip. Everyone had a great time. Would definitely recommend this great escape!!"

  • Beach at it's best!

    "I have been staying at the Surf Dweller for about 30 years and this unit is by far one of the most upgraded units. The owner provides umbrella and four beach chairs in the unit which is a great advantage and money saver. Also provides some beach toys and other toys if you have children. You cannot beat the view of the beach here and the spaciousness of the condo. Owner is very pleasant to work with. You cannot beat the view and beach access here for sure!!!"

  • Perfect!

    "We have rented a lot of condos for vacation in this area, this unit was AWESOME and our favorite thus far! Pat was great to work with and everything you could think of was available at the condo. We are actually looking at our calendars to book again! The view from the deck was incredible, saw dolphins every day - We did not want to come home. Looking forward to our next stay!!"

Florida Main North West Travel Tips

Northwest Florida, aka the Florida Panhandle, is known for its stellar white sand beaches and glowing blue-green waters. The beaches of northwest Florida provide the area's most popular attractions for visitors. Surrounding the surf and sand are a variety of parks, restaurants and shops. Within this region is the Emerald Coast that runs from Pensacola to Port St. Joe, and the Forgotten Coast that runs from Mexico Beach to St. Marks.

Things to Do in Northwest Florida

National Museum of Naval Aviation: Anyone interested in space travel is sure to enjoy the rich history found here. With more than 140 restored aircraft from the Navy, Coast Guard Aviation and Marine Corps, this space offers plenty to explore. Watch a live Blue Angels flight demonstration, experience flight and motion-based simulators and learn about the interior of a cockpit.

Gulf World Marine Park: Tons of family fun can be had at Gulf World Marine Park. With the park's dolphin, scuba, sea lion and tropical bird shows, visitors can see these local animals up close and personal performing entertaining and amazing tricks and feats. As you stroll though, don’t miss Tropical Gardens, where you can pet a live string ray and visit the exhibits of otters, iguanas, alligators and penguins.

Panhandle Butterfly House: Along U.S. Highway 98 you’ll find the Navarre Visitor Center, and at the foot of the beach bridge is an interactive butterfly garden that’s home to migrating butterflies and a nursery housing local butterfly species. The facility is operated by volunteers, and visitors can take a class to learn about butterfly gardening, ecosystem management and habitat conservation. Step inside and witness dozens of types of butterflies flying around. These colorful, winged creations are certainly a sight to see.

Mission San Luis: This exciting northwestern Florida attraction is a popular living history park. More than 60 acres rest on a quiet oasis away from city living. As you walk through the park you’ll feel as though you’ve gone back in time. Examine the exhibit gallery and museum in the visitor center, which houses artifacts both excavated and from private collections. The theater produces live entertainment and a classroom offers workshops and special events. If you visit on Sunday, take an Archeology Tour to learn how the site’s been excavated and how artifacts are preserved.

Panhandle Opry: To get a taste of some good ol’ fashioned country western music, check out the Panhandle Opry on the first and third Saturday of each month. A collection of musical artists gets together to put on a traditional show for visitors who love the genre.

Pensacola Beach: Famously known for pearly white sand and stunningly green waters, Pensacola Beach is certainly one to put on the must-see list. There are endless opportunities for both fun and relaxation here. Stroll down Pensacola Beach Pier or set up your rod for a morning of fishing. Stake your claim on the beach itself for some quality time with loved ones in the sun before grabbing a lunch of fresh seafood at a nearby eatery.

Topsail Hill State Preserve: At Topsail Hill you’ll find amazing natural features, including 3.2 miles of secluded sandy beaches and dunes rising more than 25 feet tall. The state preserve offers and excellent location for an afternoon of fishing off the shore or hiking through the trees while on the lookout for local birds. Of course, there’s the beach itself, where you can soak up some rays, build an epic sand castle or have a swimming race.
