Property description

There's nothing so beautiful as the sound of the surf, the view of the turquoise blue green water and pristine white sand beaches. Spend the day just watching the water change colors, watching the surf, the seagulls, the herons and the pelicans splash in the water. Most spring and summer days you'll also see dolphins swimming by. In April, there's the cobia tournament so you see a lot of boats out in the gulf. In late August you may see sea turtles hatching. And in the fall, look for the cownose rays jumping across the water.

Whether you enjoy sitting on the beach or being inside, out of the sun, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico from this spacious gulf front townhouse! Huge great room with relaxing beach decore and a 20'x15' deck/balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and white sandy beach.

Great room features recessed lights, 18' tile floors, comfortable goose down filled couch and double chairs with ottomans. Fully equipped Kitchen with plenty of dishes, blender, toaster, coffee pot.

Cable TV, DVD, & Wireless internet.

Floor Plan Description:
2nd floor: The Gulf view great room, large 20x15 balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Guest bedroom with one queen bed and one twin bed and bath. Washer/dryer Closet
3rd Floor: Gulf front Master Bedroom with King bed, TV and private master bath with tiled shower. Private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Also an additional guest bedroom with two queen beds, TV, and private bath.
Ground floor is 10’ x 30’parking, room for 3 cars back to back, the foyer, and a separate studio apartment that is rented separately. The garage is used to store your beach toys and/or bikes.

Although the unit is pet friendly, dogs are not allowed on the beach along the Gulf of Mexico. There is a dog park on the Gulf of Mexico about 10 miles down the beach and you can walk them along the multi-use path or along Santa Rosa Sound .

Navarre beach activities include:
Miles of unspoiled white sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico and the intercoastal waterway for shelling, swimming, kayaking, sailing, fishing, waterskiing, parasailing, jet skiing, snorkeling, surfing, windsurfing, and wildlife viewing.

Multi-use path runs the length of the Island for biking, walking, or jogging. You can rent bikes, kayaks, and surf boards by the week or day at very reasonable rates.

Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary artificial reefs have been placed in Santa Rosa Sound and one to be built in the Gulf of Mexico for Snorkeling.

The longest fishing pier on the Gulf of Mexico is less than 2 miles east of 'Island Time'. It's great for fishing or watching people pull in some big ones. They also have a Bar & Grill with live music.

Love the sunsets at Juana's Pogoda's. It's also entertaining in the summer to watch the volleyball tournaments there and usually they have live bands on the weekends.

Free concerts are held in the park at the foot of the Navarre Beach Bridge on Thursday nights 6 PM- 8PM in the summer, and Pensacola Beach hosts free concerts on the gulf on Tuesday nights. It's a beautiful 20 minute drive through the National Seashore to shop, eat, and see other places on Pensacola Beach as well.

Another must see while you're here is the Naval Museum in Pensacola, Home of the Blue Angels.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: The first time I saw the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico was in 1981. It was truly the most beautiful scenery I'd had ever seen. It had been my dream to have a place of my own on the Gulf. Now, I have two. I've lived on Navarre Beach since 1991. I bought 'Island Time' in 2000. I had 4 wonderful and amazing years living there and saw dolphins jump up out of the water, watched sea turtle nests hatch and assisted them to the gulf, picked up star fish one morning, and the birds... pelicans, seagulls, herons, sandpipers are abundant & beautiful. In 2007, I decided to offer it as a vacation rental. I enjoy meeting people from different places and hope they enjoy life on the Gulf of Mexico from ' Island Time' as much as I have.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
'Island Time' is a two mile walk or bike ride to the Longest Fishing Pier on the Gulf, the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center or Juana's Pagoda & Sailor's Grill. If you have bikes, you can bring them & keep them in the garage.
