Idyllic Beach Week Location-Loved Every Minute!
There was so much to love about this home it's difficult to tell it all...I'll hit some of the highlights for us:
Beautiful beaches-both on the gulf and on the sound! White fluffy sand on the gulf, with clear, emerald water, and the Santa Rosa Sound was so beautiful and peaceful...great for morning and sunset walks. Most days we shared it only with the heron, sandpipers, and rays. The drive along the Gulf Islands National Seashore is spectacular!
The balconies facing both directions were a delight; great for sunrise, sunset, and catching breezes. Heavenly to see water all around from the living room!
The home is beautiful, and comfortable. (Especially loved the sheets and towels...cute and comfie!) We had everything we needed for cooking meals, including a crab boil, games to play indoors, beach gear, etc. etc....
We wanted for nothing.
We all had so much fun cooking together, hanging out at the beach, enjoying the balconies...
We also had loads of fun tooling around the island on the golf carts.
Our favorite restaurants were Juana's Pagoda for drinks, sunsets, and yummy fish tacos, and the East Bay Crab House.
Ashley and Natalie were an absolute pleasure! We so appreciated their attention to detail, great recommendations, and sense of humor.
We are still missing Rays of Sunshine and look forward to booking the house again ASAP!
Thanks for the wonderful week!
Nice house close to beach and plenty of room!
We had a really good time. House has everything you need for cooking. Plenty of room. Balcony's and downstairs patio help with plenty of room for everyone to hang out. I was worried about there not being enough space, but there was. We had 9 people and plenty of room. Only thing is maybe bring a good nonstick frying pan. They have a number of them, but we're a little picky there. Owner was nice. Never bothered us. We got to check in early. One issue with trash not getting picked up and they were right on it. One person had said something before about decor, but we all thought it was really pretty and we came away with a few ideas for our own decorating. You can tell everything is used, but its really well taken care of. We enjoyed the bikes, golfcart, and ping pong table. We had red flags on beach almost every day, but it was close enough to Destin and Pensacola and we found beaches to go to where we could get in. Navarre is nice. Not too commercial, but close to places that are if you drive a little ways. Our drive on 65 coming back kind of sucked. Lots of delays. So much better to drive at night to avoid the delays. Overall awesome time with family and we would come back!
Wonderful vacation home!
Lovely home in a great location that is very close to beach and offers all the necessary amenities for a family vacation. The golf cart was a lot of fun. We also enjoyed a few spirited games of ping pong. We woukd definitely recommend
Cozy home with water views, home has everything you could want, beach decor is great, beds comfy, lots of balcony space and room to entertain! Open concept inside, a tad outdated inside but very clean and in good condition! Would recommend it!
Beach week end
Wonderful site for a large family! Many bikes, a gulf cart, beach items, and even when it was in the 30-40’s we could play ping pong in the garage. The kitchen was also amenable to cooking for a large crowd.
Our stay was wonderful! No one wanted to leave. . .
The property was very well cared for and had every amenity you can imagine! To be able to stand in the middle of the living room and see water out of both the front and back windows was a real treat. This was exactly what we wanted--a getaway from a very hectic lifestyle. We saw so much sea life, both from the beach and the pier--dozens of jellyfish, two sea turtles, about 18 mantas and two sea turtles. We hand fed a heron and saw many kinds of birds.
We definitely want to come back!!
Navarre Beach was recently featured in Southern Living Magazine as a family friendly paradise. We are spoiled to our 'private little world'. Navarre Beach is located between Pensacola Beach and Destin and is the perfect place to stay in one spot and get away from it all, or enjoy outdoor activities such as a Zoo, Gulfarium, golf, deep sea fishing, sea turtle conservation, butterfly house, bike trails, rivers, canoeing, Naval Museum, historical military sites, and the list goes on.
