Overview

About the property

Gulf Front Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

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, Granite counter tops, large couch and double chairs with ottomans. Fully equipped Kitchen with plenty of dishes, blender, toaster, coffee pot, built in microwave.

Cable, HD TV,'s 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.

About Terri

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.

Terri purchased this townhome in 2000

What makes this townhome unique

'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.

Beautiful Views, Uncrowded Beaches, Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Island Time was perfect for us! We didn't want the traffic, noise or crowded conditions that are typical in Destin or Gulf Shores. However, being on the beach was a priority, and this townhouse provided beach access right off the deck. There was a small area of sand between the unit and the dunes, which was perfect for playing "lawn" jarts or building sandcastles. Cross the dunes and the beach is wide enough to play football or Frisbee without worrying about stepping on sunbathers. Inside, the kitchen and bathrooms were nice, and the beds were comfortable. The large tv in the living room was a big hit for watching movies after dark or when the occasional thunderstorm rolled through. We loved that Walmart was just a short drive across the bridge, and loved eating at the Shrimp Basket restaurant several times. Navarre Beach was the perfect place for us to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing week.

It was Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this wonderful house and absolutely LOVED it!! The house was mere steps from the Gulf and the view from the decks was just spectacular. Inside there was plenty of room for our family to spread out and be comfortable. The location is conveniently located to pretty much any activity we wanted to do but on a strip that is not to commercialized so its not as touristy or crowded. Terri was so helpful with every aspect of out booking and in answering all the questions we had before arriving (from what we needed to bring, what there was to do in the area, the different things going on while we were there....you name it she made sure we had the info!) I would highly recommend both Island Time and any other rentals Terri has. If we ever get the chance to come back (and we're hoping we do) I will definitely stay here again!!!

Beach Bliss

  • 4 of 5

This spacious beach front townhouse has it all. Each member of my family & guest had a super comfy bed. With 3 bathrooms, this unit has it all. We found it to be very clean as well. Updated interior decor and modern appliances provided everything we were hoping far. I recommend "Island Time" for relaxation, prime beach front access and beautiful views.
