About the property

Quiet Top Floor - On The Beach - Simply Delightful

Emerald Surf 503

Our guests will enjoy a complimentary seven-day beach service of two chairs and umbrella from March to October ($150 value)

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. In 2015 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. In December 2016 we replaced the tub in the master bath with a five foot step-in shower like the hall bath.

The beautifully furnished unit includes all the comforts of home with a beach accent:

• Plenty of Comfortable Seating in Living Area, including two La-Z-Boy loungers

About Terry Johnson

We purchased this unit in February 2014. We have been coming regularly to Navarre Beach with its uncrowded beaches and laid-back vibe for over 30 years from our home in Little Rock, and we stayed in Emerald Surf a half dozen times in various units before purchasing 503. We absolutely loved the top floor view, but with only five floors you still hear the surf and sea birds. The pelicans fly lazy figure-eights to gain altitude in the updraft from the onshore breeze against the side of the building.

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 Navarre Beach

We chose this unit for our 40th anniversary present. The past four 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.

Third visit in four years

  • 5 of 5

This place is always being updated and improved upon by the owner. 5th floor view is breathtaking. Even when it rains, the balcony alone is worth the trip before you even walk out to the pool or the beach. But the sun usually manages to shine on Emerald Surf!

ES503 was exactly as described. We had absolutely no problems

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Surf 503 is a beautiful, comfortable and well maintained condo. The kitchen provided everything we needed to cook All our meals. The location is perfect. It has an Awesome view of the beach with beautiful sunrises and sunsets Easy access to the clean white sand beach which has the most gorgeous blue water and a bounty of seashells. It is a mile walk from the pier which is a great place to visit. This is the most relaxing family Christmas we have had. Thanks ES503 and Navarre Beach!

Quiet & Clean With Great View

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very nice condo. Cleanliness is very important to me and this place was clean from ceiling to floor. Beds had wonderful linens and were very comfortable. I slept better while there than I do at home. The living room furniture was very comfortable. Haven't stayed anywhere that had 2 recliners. The shower was nice with great water pressure with very nice towels and hand soaps provided. The kitchen was well equipped. Be aware there is no ice maker, but plenty of ice trays. The lack of an ice maker didn't matter to us. There was absolutely no noise from neighbors or from the street. You can tell the owners care about their condo and their renters. So much better than staying in a hotel. This condo is convenient to everything - the beach, pool, shopping and restaurants. We will definitely rent this condo next year if available when we decide to go back to Navarre. The owners were readily accessible and very nice. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Johnson for a wonderful place to stay.
