About Carol Andersen

We are a retired US Air Force couple with a combined 45 years of active duty service. Our assignments brought us to the Gulf Coast in the early 90's and we've called it home ever since!

Carol Andersen purchased this condo in 2011

Why Carol Andersen chose Navarre

Upon returning from an overseas assignment we wanted to stay on the beach until we could move into our permanent home. Caribbean resort offered unobstructed views with incredible furnishings and we fell in love with it. A few years later our health dictated that we needed to eliminate the constant work of a single family home. We decided to move back to the beach and when the West Penthouse in Carribean Resort was available for purchase and we jumped at the chance to own the best condo on the beach. Unfortunately, other family health issues did not allow us to continue making the penthouse our fulltime home. We are now thrilled to share this beautiful property with you!

(Owner is a Florida licensed REALTOR with Emerald Shores Realty)

What makes this condo unique

Being located directly on the Gulf of Mexico beachfront, our unobstructed views are amazing. The western views provide unbelievable scenic shots all the way to Pensacola Beach. At almost 200 feet in the air, this luxury penthouse literally gives you a bird's eye view of our emerald waters and sugar white beaches. It often happens that we watch sea turtles swim by as we enjoy our morning coffee and then dolphins playing in the afternoon surf. Throughout the day we see flocks of Pelicans wing by often a few floors below us as they cruise the shore line. With only 3 units per floor it feels like we have our own castle in the air and with only 54 units in the building it feels wonderfully exclusive.

After four years of ownership we are still stunned at our view every time we walk back into the Penthouse. Waking in the morning in the gulf front master bedroom still makes us feel as if we were in the Captain's suite on a luxury cruise liner.

Beautiful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We spend the first week of October 2017 in this beautiful penthouse. Carolyn was so easy to work with and thought of everything we could have possibly needed. The view was amazing, the condo well-stocked with extra towels, linens, beach toys & chairs & every imaginable kitchen gadget. We quickly realized that we over-packed because everything we needed, besides clothes and toiletries, had been provided abundantly. One concern we had was being so close to the elevator, but this was not at all a problem. Once inside the condo, we couldn't hear noise from other units or from the elevator. We would highly recommend this VRBO and hope to come back to visit it too!

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The owner had a cabinet with salt and pepper and other items that you may only use once. That was a very nice touch!

Beautiful condo, well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd year we have stayed at Caribbean Resort (and have always enjoyed it), but was the first year we stayed in unit 1803, the "Penthouse." It was beautiful and very well stocked. The kitchen had all of the utensils, pots, pans, etc., that we needed, and the entry closet had a lot of beach items for use. The owner provides very detailed instructions about check-in and makes it easy and effortless when you arrive. No extra stops at management facilities. A plus for this unit (top floor, corner facing west) is that it even has a kitchen window to watch gorgeous sunsets while you prepare dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Navarre Beach and recommend unit 1803!

A few missing features--overall good

  • 3 of 5

The views are stunning. The property itself is wonderful. The condo has a great layout. Unfortunately we were met by a fridge that was broken and took two days to be repaired (groceries melted/meat ruined), no complimentary soap for the showers, no washing machine detergent or dishwasher soap. No sugar for am coffee. At least there was coffee filters. The decor is outdated and 1990s overbearing/not beachy which is a minor thing but worth knowing. The owner was responsive but too little done too late. On a final note...For a "penthouse" price I felt the bedding was cheap, not enough toilet paper, only one garbage bag for kitchen...overall ok.

Owner's Response: I'm afraid this falls into the "You can't please everyone" category. This tenant was accurate about SOME of the refridgerator problems. I personally used the fridge up to the day prior to this tenant's arrival and it worked perfectly. I'm not sure how I could have forecasted when it would break. Once it was determined the fridge wasn't working we had a repairman on site asap. (None of them make evening calls here but one arrived immediately the next day.) The replacement part was not in stock locally but arrived and was installed the following day. I offered to pay for all ruined foods but this tenant refused. It's also important to note there are two kitchens in this unit with two full size fridges so our tenants were not without fridge for any time at all. The complimentary items were also provided. An entire bag of sugar was in the spice cabinet and a full bottle of dishwasher detergent under the sink.... We provide Tommy Bahama towels and high thread count linens so I'm just not sure what better we could have provided. Lastly, we have current pictures of the decor on VRBO so the tenant chose this Penthouse knowing exactly what the decor looked like. It is not beachy like so many other units but that's what gives it the high end feel. I'm so sorry they did not like the Penthouse and wish they would have spoken with me about their needs prior to renting. We have successfully catered to folks from all over and will continue to do so.
