The second bedroom includes a queen size bed and has glass doors to an uncovered portion of the large back deck, perfect for sunning. The third bedroom offers two twin beds and space for our queen size blow up mattress (if needed). All bedrooms have tv’s and cable.

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

Beach week end

  • 5 of 5

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.

Smyrna, TN

Our stay was wonderful! No one wanted to leave. . .

  • 5 of 5

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!!

A perfect anniversary getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and location. Navarre beach is one of the best kept secrets of the area. Great water and great sand without the crowds. The property comes stocked with everything you need including beach stuff like chairs, towels, and toys. Ashley was great and easy to get in touch with if you need anything. Would definitely recommend Rays of Sunshine to all our friends!

Navarre Beach

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.
