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.

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.

Loved our time at Navarre

  • 5 of 5

The first thing we noticed about Unit 503 was how tastefully it was decorated. The living room has comfortable furniture including 2 recliners and a sofa that doesn't swallow you up! The kitchen has everything you need to cook, including large pots for seafood. The drawers were stocked with DVDs and plenty of books to read in case you get rained out from the beach. The deck has very nice and comfortable furniture to lounge on while you watch the surf roll in. It was our first time to stay in 503, but we will be back! Terry has been great to work with. He will be sure you have all of the information you need to make your stay easy and relaxing. The keyless entry is a real "plus". It was nice not having to keep up with keys. And by the way, if you don't have a great time, it will be your OWN fault!

Awesome Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Navarre Beach and Emerald Surf #503 and we loved both!! The condo was, not only, very well stocked, but also, beautifully decorated ( I'm an interior designer and I loved the beachy colors and touches ). The furniture was also very comfortable.... as a matter of fact, we felt at home immediately!! We loved the "big" book with various information about the area, activities and eating spots too. It was very helpful. Navarre Beach is so clean and pretty and the people so friendly, we decided we will definitely return and stay again in #503. This was an amazing week at the beach!!

Beautifully decorated and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, we were very impressed at how clean and well decorated the condo was. Definitely had a beachy feel to it. I came across only one instance that I needed to call the owners (I couldn't figure out the key pad) and they answered right away. During our stay, we found the condo to be well-equupped with any and all kitchen utensils we would need. They also had some puzzles, books and board games for the few rainy days we had on vacation. Additionally, they had a closet of beach items (boogie boards, noodles, chairs, etc.) that we found to be very useful! A few friends of ours stayed in other Emerald Surf condos and none compared to how nice ours was. It was an amazing experience and we would definitely rent from them again.

Owner's Response: I wish we could control the rain, but glad you had a good week at the beach. Thanks for the kudos... we have enjoyed furnishing 503 in a way that others could also enjoy it. Come back again.
