Car: Necessary

Navarre Beach is a quiet beach destination. High Rise condominiums are over 2 miles away so our beach does not have umbrella after unbrella lined up in rows. There may be a few other people nearby but nothing like the crowds in the busier areas.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: The Bob Dawsons have always been 'beach people'. In the early days we traveled from Nashville to South Carolina but then discovered the Gulf coast. First Dauphin Island, AL and then, Navarre Beach. We were in love and Bob and Faffy purchased the property in 1976 and completed construction in 1977. The original house was destroyed by hurricane Opal in 1995 and rebuilt as it stands today in 1997. At first it was our private home but in 2003, we decided to open it to rental. We believe the Dawson House is truly one of the most livable rental houses on Navarre Beach.

Why the Owner Chose Navarre Beach, FL, USA:
Previous guests all rave about the open floor plan, the well stocked kitchen and the cleanliness of the Dawson House. Our cleaner literally treats the house as her own. She often spends her free time there to do that little something extra to make sure the house is perfect for our guests. Confidently we say you won't find a cleaner house on the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The hot and cold outdoor shower has to be experienced. Something about showering with the gulf breeze blowing around you is like nothing else. And being able to rinse off the salt water and sand before going inside is a nice benefit.
