Beach Front Penthouse Condo, 3 Bedrooms/3 Baths (Sleeps 8), NO PETS, NO SMOKING

We're renting once again and everything is NEW - NEW - NEW!!! After taking a few years to enjoy this beautiful condo for ourselves, we decided to renovate everything and offer it to you to rent. We have taken a beautiful unit and made it even better with ALL BRAND NEW STAINLESS STEEL appliances, BRAND NEW full sized washer and dryer, BRAND NEW living room and dining room furniture, BRAND NEW area rugs, BRAND NEW window coverings throughout the entire condo, BRAND NEW flooring in the bathrooms and a BRAND NEW A/C unit!!! You'll love everything we have done to make this the best vacation rental you'll ever stay in.

Beach Colony East Resort Condominiums, one of the newest complexes on the beach, is the home of this spectacular Penthouse Unit with the finest accommodations available. It is located on the 18th floor with sweeping unobstructed easterly views of Navarre Beach on the Gulf of Mexico and the Santa Rosa Sound. You will feel as if you're on top of the world.

From the moment you walk in the door of the Penthouse, you will know this will be the best vacation yet! The unit is fully tiled. The decor has been carefully coordinated to produce a relaxing and fun environment. Yellow, white and blue...all fresh colors with attention to detail. As you roam through this spacious floor plan you will marvel at the expansive views. If you look closely, you will see dolphins at play during your stay.

The Penthouse boasts two Master Suites, each with King Beds, Gulf Views and private baths. One Suite has a marble,jetted Jacuzzi tub with a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico. The other Suite has an over sized walk-in shower with views of the Sound as well as the Gulf. The third bedroom has two Queen beds, Sound Views and private bath. Each bedroom has flat screen LCD TV's with built-in DVD players.

The living area has been remodeled with ample seating for 8 arranged so you can enjoy the large flat screen LCD TV and DVD player. You'll love the comfort of 2 brand new over-stuffed leather couches with recliners in each end and a new pair of cozy swivel rockers.

The fully equipped Kitchen, with a breakfast nook that seats four, has another amazing view. There is also a table with seating for five in the dining room. Cook as much as you'd like using all brand new stainless steel appliances or enjoy the vast array of local eateries, the choice is up to you. We also have a brand new 32-bottle wine chiller for those who appreciate a glass of wine at just the right temperature.

A brand new full size Washer and Dryer and all linens and unit towels are provided to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The only thing you will need to bring are beach towels and a smile!

Enjoy your meals on the large wrap-around balcony or simply enjoy a cool beverage in one of the lounge chairs while sunbathing. The balcony affords you privacy with an unobstructed view you will never forget. On a clear day you can almost see Destin.

And when you're ready to relax in the sun you can watch the waves roll in while you swim in the over sized beach-side pool. We also provide 4 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas set up each morning by the beach service for your use. Or you can walk for miles on the white sand beach looking for shells. And if you want to get the blood flowing, consider a game of tennis at our private tennis court or a run in our fully equipped workout facility. You'll never lack for things to do when you stay at Beach Colony.

And you will find that security is a priority at Beach Colony. We have gated grounds that can only be accessed with a security code.

About Donna Thorpe

Hi, we're Greg and Donna Thorpe and we live in northern Illinois, 80 miles northwest of Chicago. Coming from the land of ice and snow has given us a deep appreciation for the warm climate and beautiful white sand beaches of northern Florida. Though our three sons are grown, they all love coming to Navarre Beach to spend vacation with family and friends.

Donna Thorpe purchased this condo in 2002

Why Donna Thorpe chose Florida Main North West

Navarre Beach is called 'Florida's Best Kept Secret' for a reason. This quiet barrier island located between Destin, FL and Pensacola, FL has everything we were looking for in a vacation destination. It has miles of white sand beaches to walk, a limited number of properties and is close to anything you want to do. We found the perfect combination of quiet relaxation and energetic life style. Navarre Beach was the right place for us to vacation with our family to be able to fulfill everyone's expectations, so it was no surprise that we choose to buy a condo here.

What makes this condo unique

One of the best things about staying in our penthouse are the stunning water views from every room - it was the very thing that sold us the minute we walked through the door. Enjoying a cup of coffee as we watch the sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico has to be our favorite activity each morning. Sitting under an umbrella on a beach chair listening to the waves hit the sand is another great way to spend the day. But when we're ready to go out to eat or want to do some shopping we're only minutes away from dozens of shops and resturants. The boys love all the activites they can go do; parasailing, fishing, jet skiing, golfing are just a few of the things they look forward to when they come for a visit. I guess what we love most is that this condo and the surrounding area appeal to everyone, no matter what their tastes are.

Relaxing Beach home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 adults and 2 young children (stayed the last week in July) and this condo was the perfect place for our low-key, relaxing vacation. The condo is beautiful, immaculate, and spacious. It has all the little "extras" that make it feel just like home. One of my favorite things were the spectacular views...from the huge balcony, but also from the breakfast nook where you can see the beach, the bay, the bridge, and that whole side of the island...great place for meals or just relaxing. The pool is large and the workout center decent. The grounds are pretty and well maintained.

The only thing we weren't crazy about was having to go down early each morning to secure a front row spot on the beach. I think the beach chairs should be reserved in the same spot for the whole week. But thanks, Donna ,for including two sets of chairs in the condo price because it was great that we did not have to bother packing our own!

The beach is gorgeous and not overly crowded like it is in many other locations that we have vacationed. And the water was beautiful! There were also tons of shells along the beach for treasure hunting. And don't forget flashlights for crab "hunting" at night!!

This was our first time on Navarre and we wanted a very quiet, low-key, relaxing vacation and this is just what Navarre offered. No hustle and bustle, no traffic, no super crowded beaches. It was great. That being said, if you want nightlife or an abundance of restaurants to choose from, Navarre may not be the place. We drove to Fort Walton for a couple excursions and it is only an easy 25 minute scenic drive down the highway.

Donna and her family's condo is a beautiful, comfortable place to stay and we highly recommend it. We will be back!

The property was beautifully and thoughtfully appointed for guests and the views were spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this beautiful property especially the spacious and graciously appointed living areas and kitchen. The enormous balcony was also perfect for hanging out--whether it was coffee in the morning, escaping the heat in the afternoon or watching the sunset or a storm roll through in the evening! Awesome condo!

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo. It was roomy, clean, and had comfortable furniture. We spent a lot of time on the large balcony where the view was spectacular. Actually there were views of the ocean or bay from every room. The weather was great and the ocean was beautiful during our stay, so we rarely went out. Donna was great to work with. The only issue we had was it was tricky getting the door unlocked. Since we had 4 children with us, it would have been great to have a key pad so they would have had easier access. I highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a wonderful vacation! I would love to have a key pad on our door for our renters to use, but at this time our association does not allow us to install them. I will bring it up at next years association meeting and see if they might reconsider.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

As an escape from busy Orlando, we were so delighted with our gorgeous condo. The panoramic Gulf and Bay views are simply breathtaking. Watching the Dolphins frolic in the gulf was an added bonus. This beautifully decorated condo shows like a model. Excellent taste and quality were exhibited everywhere, from the sheets to kitchen ware. It is very spacious and extremely clean. The Navarre pier and many fine restaurants are only a stones throw away. The owners were extremely helpful throughout the process and did everything to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely return to this little piece of heaven.
