Relaxed and private, renovated waterfront townhome on the intracoastal waterway. Three balconies and a large downstairs deck await you, each offering different atmospheres to accommodate you and your parties' whims: You can walk directly from the Santa Rosa Sound (This small complex has the longest private pier!) onto your deck with your fresh catch and grill it. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand. Downstairs deck also has dining for 10, plus extra seating and hammock chairs to while your cares away while sipping a cold one, watching the sailboats and dolphins as the sun dips into the horizon.
The kitchen is stocked with more than the basic dishes and pots and pans; multiple small appliances (food processor, mixer, crock pot, steamer, both full sized coffee maker and single serve pod brewer, stocked spice rack, coffees and teas, and more to prepare any type of meal (or dessert) with ease. Granite countertops and full sized appliances make meal prep a breeze. The kitchen also has its own balcony overlooking the pool. Great place to enjoy your morning coffee.
Comfortable, ample seating in both the living room and dining area for eight give large open views to watch the boats, kayakers, windsurfers, dolphins, and busy seabirds. Herons even perch on the large living room balcony's rail. Watch a sunrise, a sunset, or one of the three 55 inch smart Ultra high def 4X TV's if you'd rather.
The third floor offers the most comfortable king bed you may ever sleep on! Awaken and sip your fresh hot coffee or tea on the master bedroom's own private balcony with comfy, padded rocking chairs that also overlook the water and pier, or enjoy a romantic nightcap with your honey. Sublime beginnings and endings to your days.
The other bedroom on the third floor offers a comfortable queen bed in a room of driftwood grays and serene blues, and a large bay window that faces the adjacent community pool. The pictures on the walls showcase our island's two public piers. Navarre Beach's pier is the longest in the state and yummy food and drinks!
More sleeping arrangements are available on the second floor on a comfy gel topped memory foam bamboo mattress in a bar-free queen murphy bed, there is also a separate twin sleeper.
There is a handy full bathroom downstairs,
but you can pamper yourself upstairs with either the walk in shower or a deep, soaking slipper tub after an active day on the beach or a myriad of other bustling outdoor activities (or shopping if that's more your fancy).
Walk literally steps along your Soundfront beach from the deck to adjacent nearby restaurant/bakery for scrumptious treats. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails, music, beach volleyball and so much more are nearby as well. NO CAR NEEDED! ;)
