Enjoy a panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico from the 5th-floor balcony of 503, a two-bedroom, two-bath top floor condo situated on a quiet stretch of white sugar-sand beach. Last winter we added a new tile floor throughout with area rugs and put a new king-size bed in the guest bedroom, making 503 perfect for two couples or a family.

About Terry Johnson

We purchased this unit in February 2014. We have been coming regularly to Navarre Beach for over 25 years from our home in Little Rock, and we've stayed in Emerald Surf a half dozen times in various units before purchasing.

This low-rise condo (only 5 floors with 9 units per floor) with over 300' of beach frontage provides the quiet, low beach density we have been coming to Navarre Beach to enjoy.

Terry Johnson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Terry Johnson chose Florida Main North West

We chose this unit for our 40th anniversary present. The past three years have seen extensive renovation and decorating. We are eager to use it for our family and friends and to offer this extension of our home to our special guests.

Awesome Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Had another great week at Emerald Surf #503. This is our fourth year at Navarre and we have stayed in this condo and we feel at home when we are there. The owners have done such a great job of making it feel like your home away from home. It is always well stocked with utensils, appliances, games and books. We have booked for next year already and cannot wait to get back. Thanks Johnson's for all your attention to detail!

Fantastic property. Definitely recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year traveling to Navarre and we usually stay in hotels, but decided this year to stay on the beach. We are so happy with our choice!

The property is beautiful and modern. Anything utensil/pot/pan/cutlery/dinnerware of which you would need is in the kitchen - including a dishwasher. Nice clothes washer and dryer in the closet. There was another closet full of beach things such as toys, umbrellas, and chairs (in addition to the beach chairs and umbrella that is already reserved for you). Nice bed linens and towels were provided. Even the sofa bed was comfortable. It was like home on the beach - just add food!

Speaking of the beach - what an amazing view from the balcony. We spent quite a lot of time using the REALLY nice patio furniture! The walk to the water was short. Beach is BEAUTIFUL.

Owner was very helpful communicative. Unit 503 is definitely recommended and we would love to stay in this unit again.

Emerald Surf #503

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Surf #503 is, by far, the best condo we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The views are great. The unit itself is beautiful and decorated beautifully. There is no wanting for anything in this unit. There are plenty of books and movies to keep anyone entertained when the weather doesn't cooperate. Even the beach closet is stocked with essentials for all ages. But I was most impressed with the FULLY stocked kitchen. Such a great way to spend 2 weeks. Thanks for helping make our vacation one to remember. I am sure we will be renting this one again.

Owner's Response: We have set up the condo as our special beach home into which we welcome friends and guests rather than treating it just as a rental unit. We always like hearing that our efforts are appreciated. Thanks for the kind words.

It is great!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Emerald Surf for the last 4 summers. It's amazing and wonderful for families. The only thing I dislike is that there is no hot tub. Everything is great and outweighs that. My family always looks forward to our vacation.
