About the property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Beautiful Gulf Front Studio Apartment directly on the Gulf of Mexico! Open the sliding glass doors to the huge covered patio and listen to the sound of the surf. Dune crossover is about 50 feet from the back door.

This studio is the ground floor of a 3 story townhouse. The upstrairs 2nd & 3rd floor is rented separately, VRBO # 120932. Studios are designed with everything in one big room, (no separate bedroom). Furnished with new (6/2016) king size size bed, sofa, (not a sleeper sofa), & dining table. Kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker, portable 2 burner cook top, indoor grill, toaster, TV, DVD, wireless internet, & stereo. Bath has a tiled shower. Washer & dryer in unit.

Located in the residential area of Navarre Beach away from the crowds of the high-rises, only 1 mile from the National Seashore and 2 miles from the Navarre Beach Causeway.

You can also enjoy the multi-use path that runs the length of the island and into the National Seashore for running, walking, or biking. It's only a two mile walk to the restaurants.

About Terri

My name is Terri. I live here on Navarre Beach with my Fiance John. I started selling real estate on Navarre Beach in 1986 and moved onto the island in 1991. I enjoy meeting the wide variety of interesting people who visit here and strive to make the your stay a memorable one.

Terri purchased this studio in 1996

Why Terri chose Navarre Beach

Ever since the I first time I saw the beaches here, they were so beautiful... it's one of God's greatest creations. I bought my 1st property in 1991, a townhome on Tina Dr. Then I bought Southern Breeze Townhome in 1998, and SanNavarre Townhome in 2000.

What makes this studio unique

I enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Navarre Beach, the restaurants, the bike path, or driving through the National Seashore to Pensacola Beach for dinner.

Amazing place on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at this studio on the beach. It was perfect for our family- my husband and I and our 2 year old. It was much much bigger than we expected. It had everything we needed and the location was absolutely perfect. You can see the ocean over the dunes and the deck is very large. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off before coming inside which was so convenient with our toddler. We had an issue with the coffee pot and Terri showed up that same day to replace it. She is very warm and welcoming and available for any issues you may have. There is noise from the floor above you, as expected, so we just brought a box fan to drown out any noise at night so it wouldn't wake us. We had no issues there. The beach is beautiful and very private since it is only beach homes and no condos. We will certainly return!

Okay for the price

  • 4 of 5

Furnishings need upgrading, access to beach and beach views were great, place was clean. Overall, price was right for accommodations. Would stay again but would bring a few extra items to make it more comfortable.

Beautiful Beach and water!! Great Condo location on the beach.....

  • 3 of 5

The Condo. Great location, loved the covered deck, the bed was very comfortable. We were at this property in the early winter season so the sun would set at 4:50pm every day as expected. We would shower, go out for dinner and return to the condo. The only place to sit and relax for the evening was a sofa or a hard dining chair or the bed to watch movies, etc.. the couch NEEDS TO GO. The was no way to sit comfortably on it. Your knees were higher than your hips it sunk in so bad. The bedside lamp shade was broken. There is 2 drawers in a bedside table for folded clothing and a plastic set of drawers on rollers for more storage. The one side of the bed a chair was used as a bedside table??? The sand outside of the deck - the fence is falling down, lumber laying everywhere, etc. 1 hour and it could have been cleaned up. The bathroom was dirty. If the housekeeper would have looked beyond the mirror and sink this could have been cleaned. Important!! If anyone is renting the condo above you you will not get any rest in fact you will probably have a pounding headache from hearing the stampede of feet running back and forth. Check before you rent. If there are children above you you will get no peace at all. I've have rented properties for vacation for several years and by far this one was the most uncomfortable 8 days we ever spent. The deck furniture was much more comfortable. We both came home with back aches from the lack of decent furniture to sit on. Owners - spend some money on comforts for your tenants it goes a long way in reviews as does cleanliness and general care of the outdoor landscape. We all mostly care about another's property even if the owners do not.

Owner's Response: So sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay at Gone to the Beach more than you did. I try to represent it for what it is with current pictures. I will address the cleaning issues with housekeeping. Hurricane Nate blew the sand fencing down and it’s scheduled to be repaired this month. I will also replace the lamp shade. I’ve never had someone complain about the couch & thought it was comfortable but I will look into replacing it. Thanks

It is a great property with stunning sunrises and sunsets. White sand beach with crystal clear water

  • 4 of 5

The studio is a wonderful getaway. The only drawback is you can hear everything from the unit above. All in all this is a great getaway destination to take in all the beach has to offer. I will definitely return to the area on my next beach excursion.

A few God moments

  • 4 of 5

Having never been to the Gulf for an extended stay, we were pleasantly surprised by the closeness to the ocean. The facility was as we anticipated and we plan to make other trips to the Gulf.
