About Jerry Sandvick

I am a Navarre resident, retired and care for the Sandollar Penthouse personally.

Jerry Sandvick purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jerry Sandvick chose Florida Main North West

Very private neighborhood. Only 12 units in the building. A single family home to the east and a 4-plex to the west so the beach is very private.

What makes this condo unique

Penthouse unit so the deck gets sun all day. It is an east end so it also has four windows facing east with gulf view. The guest bedroom has a window with sound view to the north.

The entire condo is tile including the large patio facing the Gulf of Mexico

We enjoyed our stay at the Sandollar. The unit was clean and convenient for us and the view is unbeatable.

We were a little concerned that we couldn't open the bedroom door to the balcony. we had a bit of a problem gaining access to the unit as we were told a key would be under the door mat. However they have switched to a coded lock box for the key. W e did manage to gain access with the help of VRBO≥ Thank you

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the Sandollar and awesome views it has of the Gulf of Mexico. Sorry about the key mix up, the electronic door lock has been in place for some time. The sliding glass door to the patio overlooking the Gulf of Mexico had a security lock which was simply a measured piece of wood laid in the door track for extra security.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We came down the Saturday before Labor day and stayed through the next Saturday. The condo had everything we needed and more. The view was well worth the price. The other tenants at the Sand Dollar were very friendly. We made new friends and met friends from when we stayed two years prior. I highly recommend this unit if you're looking for a relaxing getaway!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo and beach for quiet relaxation and peaceful sunning. This unit was very comfortable and clean. The furnishings were pleasant and the amenities were great. There were plenty of towels including beach towels. Three beach chairs and an umbrella were provided. There was laundry and dish detergent, as well as paper towels, toilet paper, etc. (more than the normal starter kits). Check out what is provided before you shop and lug it from the car because even though there is an easily accessible elevator, there isn't a luggage cart so it may take several trips.

We like Navarre Beach because it is less crowded than other beaches. This complex is far enough from the high rises that you can enjoy your spot on the beach. The boardwalk may look long in the pictures but it really isn't and when you step on the sand, you're much closer to the ocean than in Destin. We ate some really good fresh seafood at The Front Porch restaurant (Hwy 98 just across the bridge) and had a delicious breakfast at the Sailor's Grille. We drove to Destin and Pensacola Beach to eat at some of our other favorite restaurants. Both drives are easy and the road to Pensacola Beach is beautiful (thru a national wildlife refuge).

I would recommend this unit to any small group (2-4). The owner makes it enjoyable to stay there and has provided extras better than I have at home (large TV, Netflix, wifi, etc.). Plus the view and sound of the ocean is perfect!

Wonderful View of the Gulf

  • 4 of 5

Loved the view and the huge screen television in the living room and larger than usual tv in the master bedroom. Stocked with plenty of plenty of toilet paper and extra paper towels. Even had big bottles of laundry detergent and fabric softener sheets. I loved the packages of herbal teas and stevia sweetener packets. The leather recliners were so comfortable.

The only things I would recommend is to get a new mattress in the master bedroom and new carpeting or better yet just tile. Carpet gets messed up so easily.

Other than that everything was great and I would love to come there again sometime. Me and my husband really had a good time and the beach was beautiful there and not as crowded. We found a Golden Corral in Mary Esther that we ate at most nights we went to the East Bay Crab house 1 night before we left.

Thanks for everything.

Like a Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The most relaxing vacation I've ever had, came straight from work and everything was provided, only had to bring my food and clothes. The most beautiful view of the ocean and whitest beach, so close could hear the waves. Very quiet and serene. Far enuff down the beach so it was not crowed with a lot of tourist, yet could ride a bike to great restaurants and music. Meet the most friendliest people.
