Welcome to our home away from home… “Southern Belz”. Southern Belz is Unit 803 on the 8th floor of Caribbean Resort. Our 3 bedroom/3 bathroom unit is on the west side of the building and features stunning views of Florida’s Emerald Coast. We are the NEW ownership and NEW management of this unit and we have personally made sure Southern Belz is in tip top shape for the 2018 rental season, and we will personally make sure you have an unforgettable stay. Here are all the reasons Southern Belz is THE unit to book at Caribbean Resort…
Southern Belz is a CORNER unit on the WESTERN side of Caribbean Resort. If you haven’t noticed from the pictures, we want to let you in on a little secret… Caribbean Resort doesn’t have a neighboring resort to the west side of the building. This means that there is ZERO OBSTRUCTION to your view! Wake up in the morning and see the sunrise to the east over Navarre Pier, and go to bed watching the sunset in the west. This unobstructed view literally allows you to enjoy a view that wraps from the Gulf of Mexico to the Santa Rosa Sound without looking into a neighboring building. This unit boasts over 60 linear feet of 9 foot floor to ceiling windows plus 2 balconies, so you are able to enjoy this wrap around view from nearly every room in the unit. The 8th floor is the perfect height from which to enjoy these views… high enough to be away from pool or beach noise but low enough to still see that sugar white sandy coastline straight down to Pensacola Beach. If view is your “thing” look no farther and book now!
We purchased Southern Belz in the fall of 2017 and have spent much of the winter doing updates and replacing virtually everything within the unit. NEW flooring in every bedroom, NEW box springs and mattresses in every bedroom, NEW linens in every bed and bath, NEW living room furniture, NEW added bar seating, NEW seating areas in both suites, etc. We have also added details like a stocked convenience closet, a DVD library, laundry lines and drying racks in each bathroom, etc. Along with the updates we have hired a private housekeeping staff that ensures the unit is in impeccable shape upon your arrival. If you’re looking for a unit with a fresh update, book now!
Southern Belz is an extra large 3 bedroom/3 bathroom at nearly 1800 sq ft. This spaciousness really shines in each bedroom where there is plenty of room for added private seating, in the living room where there is plenty of room for the family to gather and all take a seat, and in the dining area where there is a large table and bar seating to accommodate everyone at a sit down meal. Every room in this unit is already spacious, but the floor to ceiling windows and natural light make them feel even larger. The added square footage has also allowed room for a large laundry closet, walk in closets, and an extra large master bathroom. If you and your family love to have your own space, book now!
Southern Belz is not a typical 3 bedroom/3 bathroom unit. This unit features a lockout bedroom, or what we like to call “The Bayside Suite”. The Bayside Suite is the 3rd bedroom of the Unit and can be completely separated from the rest of Unit 803 for privacy. It features its own entry/exit door that walks right out to the elevator on the 8th floor. This Bayside Suite boasts a kitchenette complete with cabinets, sink, small refrigerator, coffee maker, and dishware. The Bayside Suite also has its own full bathroom, entertainment area with TV/DVD player, comfortable sitting area, and private balcony. The Bayside Suite is why Southern Belz is perfect for several couples, 2 families with children, or a trip with the Grandparents… nobody has to argue about who gets the Master Suite because the Bayside Suite is essentially the 2nd Master. If you are traveling with another family or extended family, book now!
You will fall in love with Southern Belz, but you will also fall in love with Caribbean Resort! This resort is a smaller complex in Navarre. There are 18 floors and only 3 units per floor. Because of the low number of units in this resort, it never appears to be crowded. Caribbean Resort has a private parking lot with plenty of parking and no hassle of assigned spaces. There is also a convenient covered loading/unloading area. 2 elevators service the east and west sides of the building. At Caribbean Resort you will find a large heated pool, a “warm” jetted spa, and a hot tub. These gated facilities are surrounded by a covered lanai with plenty of seating. Walking past the pool you will find Caribbean Resort’s NEW beach walkway which help you cross the dunes to the white sand. Come enjoy what Caribbean Resort has to offer- book now!
Several years ago, we were renters at Caribbean Resort in a western Unit. After deciding to purchase a 2nd home, we searched the Emerald Coast for years and kept coming back to the western units at Caribbean Resort. When Unit 803 became available we luckily made it our home away from home, which we now lovingly call “Southern Belz”… and now we’d like to share it with you! Please scan through the rest of the unit details listed here on VRBO, and feel free to contact us with any questions regarding the unit, rates, the Navarre Beach area, our service, etc. We hope you decide to book Southern Belz today and we are confident you will have an amazing vacation!

About Lacey Belz
Our family has vacationed in the Panhandle for years, visiting places in Gulf Shores, Perdido Beach, Pensacola, Ft. Walton, and Destin. After staying at the Caribbean Resort several years ago, we decided to become beach home owners. Our search for a beach home took us all along the Panhandle and nothing compared to the view and square footage at Caribbean Resort. We also loved the idea of owning in Navarre, which we found to be less touristy that other beach communities yet close enough to larger resort areas for shopping, restaurants, and day excursions. Our family resides in St.Louis and we have a long history of renovating/building homes, so this condo was a perfect fit for us. Since we purchased in fall of 2017, we have completed several large updates already and you will see this unit completely transform over the next few years.
Lacey Belz purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Lacey Belz chose Navarre Beach
We have chosen to self manage this rental so we can provide you with the best experience possible with no middle man. We have chosen the best cleaning staff, lock service, maintenance, etc. to be sure your stay is worry free, and we will personally be accessible via email/phone/text 24-7 during your stay. We would like you to come visit our home away from home... not once, but as a returning guest year after year. This is why we are dedicated to updating and maintaining this unit which you will enjoy now and in years to come.
What makes this Condo unique
THE VIEW: We can't say it enough... the view from this unit is UNBEATABLE! We could go on and on about the wrap around view that takes your eyes from the Navarre Pier down the white sandy Gulf shore and all the way around to the Bay with no obstructions, about the breathtaking sunsets that rival any Hawaiian postcard, about the nearly 60 linear feet of 8ft floor-to-ceiling windows that are featured in this unit. But the best way to describe the view is the quote from a fellow Caribbean Resort owner, "HOLY MOLY, YOUR VIEW IS AMAZING!!!" Nothing beats the western views from the 8th floor. THE CROWD: Navarre is not your typical beach resort area. The low crowds and non-touristy atmosphere allow a truly relaxing vacation. Caribbean Resort takes this to another level because of the low number of units within the resort itself. Because Caribbean Resort has barely over 50 units, there is never a beach crowd to burden your vacation. SPACE: Caribbean Resort boasts some of the largest 3BR/3B units all the way from Orange Beach down to Destin. At nearly 1800 sq ft, this spacious unit seems massive compared to other 3BR rentals. That extra space makes each bedroom large enough to accommodate large beds plus added seating for relaxing with a book, drinking your morning coffee, or having an early morning chat while everyone else is still sleeping. This added space is also noticeable in the living room and dining room where everyone can come together with room to spare.

Had a great week at Southern Belz...beautifully decorated and relaxing place to get away. Can't wait to return!
The condo is absolutely beautiful & is also very comfortable! The views are breathtaking!
From inquiry to booking, check in to check out, everything went smoothly. Lacey was wonderful to work with, and always responded quickly to questions or concerns. She even recommended local places to eat🙂� The condo is conveniently located & had everything we needed or wanted. We had the most relaxing vacation and want to always come back here!
We have stayed at many VRBO properties in other areas of Florida. This view is by far the most impressive. Lacy was also the most responsive and friendly owner I have encountered.
The view is definitely why we fell in love with this unit. Thanks for staying with us!
Beauty All Around
Loved staying in this condo. The condo was very clean and comfortable. If I ever needed to know anything the response was immediate. Views of the ocean, pier, and sunsets were awesome. Bedding was so clean and comfortable.
Master bedroom needs a couple of pieces of furniture with drawers and a side table by both sides of the bed. More seating on the deck would make it nicer. The bunk beds in the third bedroom made it a little tricky for three retired couples. One person ended up on the couch. Queen bunks would have been a little better for our group.
Hope to be returning to Navarre in the not too distant future.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Thank you for the detailed review. Because we are brand new owners, we are still in the midst of bulking up the new furniture... funny that you mentioned the master dressers and patio furniture because both of those will be replaced when we return in September.😁 I've already been shopping around and have some beautiful pieces picked out.
In setting up this unit we were torn between making the 2nd bedroom comfortable for adults or children. Because we have little ones of our own, we decided on the full over full bunks to accomodate 4 children as it allows for playroom on the rug as well. My parents are also headed down with a group of 3 retired couples in the fall so your info is very helpful, and we may tweak some things.
Our housekeeper works very hard to maintain this unit so I'm so glad you found it clean and comfortable. She was very pleased that you left the condo in very good condition when you left.
Again, thank you for your awesome review and glad you had a great stay!
Breathtaking views, comfy and amazing condo!!!
The floor to ceiling windows all around just takes your breath away!!! This condo was delightfully very spacious, tastefully decorated, and wonderfully equipped with everything you need. All of the beds we very comfortable too. We had a fabulous spring break in Navarre and fell in love with this location. We have been visiting the Emerald Coast for over 25 years now and usually stay in the Destin area, but upon discovering the Navarre Beach area and how less crowded and less commercialized it is we are now huge fans of Navarre. We definitely want to return to this unit and this wonderful stretch of beach! Thank you for sharing your condo with us!!
I had a good feeling Navarre would steal your hearts! We are so thankful to have found this hidden gem and glad we get to share it with you. Please come back and visit us next year... and tell your friends (but not too many cuz we don't like crowds either... haha!!!). Thanks again for staying with us and for the wonderful review!
A perfect family vacation condo & the view is Amazing!
Lacy went above & beyond before, during & after our vacation. She was very quick in responses & you receive all condo information quickly and efficiently. The condo was decorated nicely & was still family appropriate. We decided to take the comforters off, just to be safe & there were enough other blankets for us to use. It is very nice that they thought to have other blankets in the condo. As well as plenty of nightlights & any kitchen appliance you might need. There were a ton of movies & games, my kids really appreciated that! The heated pool was a definite positive! The provided chairs & umbrella was wonderful and the gentleman that handled that was very helpful!
About an hour & a half after we left Lacy texted us & my daughter left her iPod there. We are so appreciative that it was found, that Lacy reached out to us & they are willing to help us get it back. A++ Condo & A++ Owner. We will be back! Thank you, Lacy for letting us borrow your “home” for a week. And to make it our own dream for but a moment!
Communication works best when both sides are putting in equal effort and that was definitely the case with your rental... I really appreciated your excellent communication as well. It was a joy to have you in our home away from home and we hope you come back and visit sometime! Thank you for noticing those little details that we have tried to include in our home to make our guests more comfortable. ;)
