About the property

Nicest Unit/Complex in Navarre Beach, FL with sandy beach behind complex!

This property is located in Navarre Beach, FL and the perfect place to relax for a weekend getaway to watch the sunset on the water every evening through the large window, fishing pier or Gazebo. This Efficiency was renovated when we bought it and since then we have/will continue to make upgrades to offer the nicest Condo in building/complex. Some examples over the past couple of years: New Carpet (4/18), New 55" Smart TV (6/17), New Stove/Range (6/17), Tankless Water Heater AND Washer/Dryer which other efficiency's do not have. It will continue year to year to make sure always up to the highest standards! Therefore...the pictures you see may not show all the upgrades as its always rented and hard to get new professional pictures taken. I will post upgrades on my Facebook pages...see last paragraph below.

It is currently setup as a furnished short rental (or long term for snow birds in winter) with the following: Queen Bed (sleeps 2) with storage drawers, inflatable mattress (sleeps 2 in front of sofa in case have couple kids coming), Natuzzi Leather sofa (comfortably sleeps 1 if didn't want to pull air mattress out), 55" Flat Screen Smart TV, High Definition Cable Box, PlayStation 3/Blu-Ray DVD player w/2 controllers and few games, High Speed WIFi Internet (up to 50mbps), full size fridge, dishwasher, stove, microwave, coffee maker (reg and Kurig), blender AND Washer/Dryer (Other 1BR Units do not have W/D in unit). I recently put 2 New Green Beach Chairs and Umbrella as an extra (non-guaranteed) perk for renters.

Its the only complex that officially has a dedicated boat trailer parking area as well :-)

Complex has a swimming pool, gazebo with two BBQ pits, fishing pier, boat/trailer parking spot.

I have recently created Facebook pages for this and other Rentals to keep past/future renters put to date. Check out all our rental properties on VRBO: 865601, 854092, 473979 & 1113076.

Also LIKE our Facebook pages found by searching for "Spoiled Rotten Condo", "Semi-Retired Beach House", "Beach Engagement", "Fleur De Lis Loft" and "Mojo Vacation Rentals".

And finally, we cannot thank you enough for considering our rental.

About Mark Johnson

My wife and I live in New Orleans and purchased this unit in 2008 as our second home because we loved Navarre Beach. We have furnished it as we would our own home and have kept it up so anyone staying there feels like they are at home...but with a beach (on sounds side) in their backyard.

Mark Johnson purchased this condo in 2004

Why Mark Johnson chose Navarre

We chose this complex for 3 main reasons: 1. It is one of the nicest places on the beach, constantly kept up and has an elevator. 2. We got engaged while staying here in 1999. 3. It is not full of renters 24/7 (many owners live here) so quiet place to relax and enjoy the Sounds side or walk 2 blocks to the gulf beach.

What makes this condo unique

Elevator, Parking always available (including for Boat/Trailer), located on the sound which has a nice sandy beach area, easy access to the gulf, fishing pier is great, etc. PlayStation 3 to keep the kids or husbands busy ;-)

2nd stay and love it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay in this unit and 3rd stay at Sunset Harbor. By far our favorite. It is beginning to feel like home. Everything about this home is wonderful. Washer and dryer in the unit is a definite plus. So much better than using the condo laundry facility. We were able to bring our kayaks and leave then locked out back by the sound. This will always be out #1 choice to stay in.

Beautiful property, Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is in a perfect location overlooking the bay, but just a short drive or walk to the beach. Unit is well stocked with everything you need ,(shampoo, conditioner, soap, paper towels, laundry detergent, even coffee for the keurig!! ) washer/dryer in unit is a plus! Very close to resturaunts in navarre, or a short scenic drive to pensacola. Would absolutely recommend this unit-- owner was kind and quick to respond. Can't wait to return , and will definately book again with Mark!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay here at the “Beach Engagement” condo at Sunset Harbour Palms, 2-208. This stay has been just as enjoyable as our last! Mark and Sissy have always been quick to get back with us when we had any questions and have always been eager to please. Other condos we have stayed at in the past have always required us to pack more, as far as toiletries, and kitchen supplies, and paper products. This condo literally has everything you need for your stay. All the basics are provided, and enough of them to last through your stay. They even provide some snacks! As long as it’s available, this will always be our go to for a beach getaway. I love the peacefulness of this location as opposed to the more tourist congested areas. The Villas, and this condo in particular, provide all anyone would want for a truly relaxing getaway. Thanks Mark and Sissy!! We will definitely be back!
