About Carolyn

We have made many trips to the beach for the last 20 years. When we stumbled upon Navarre Beach...we were truly 'hooked'. What an amazing place. After looking around, it was very obvious that Belle Mer was the place to be. We quickly bought this unit and it has been blissful!

Carolyn purchased this condo in 2014

Why Carolyn chose Navarre

Once you step inside, you don't want to leave. It is an island paradise. We fell in love with it from the moment we stepped inside.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing western sunset views, great view of the houses down the strip as well as a view of the sound.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo is absolutely beautiful, very luxurious and comfortable. I love the animal print, "my favorite". We had a great vacation and hope to return next year.

Renters beware

  • 2 of 5

‘‘This would have been 5 stars but...This was a gorgeous condo to stay in. We loved the location and the condo was immaculate. The only problem was getting our security deposit back. This condo was filled with floor to ceiling mirrors. When we arrived, one mirror had a two foot crack in it. We assumed the owner knew because it was so big. We thought they hadn’t had it repaired yet. After we left, the owner accused us of breaking the mirror. Our big mistake was not notifying the owner when we arrived. Even though we sent a video we took when we arrived at the condo showing that the crack was already there, we were still blamed for this crack. Assume nothing. Owner asked why we didn’t buy insurance. It was just my husband and myself and we always are respectful of others homes. Again, we assumed the owners knew and did not have time to fix. This was a wonderful vacation for us until this. We would definitely stay in Navarre again, just not this condo.

Owner's Response: Guests are required to notify us by email or phone of any damage found upon their check in. These guests never informed us of any damage. A mirror was found broken by the cleaning staff 15 minutes after this couple checked out. This was the same cleaning staff that cleaned the condo just prior to their check in. Yet the guest claims they didn't break it. The Belle Mer staff inspected the log and confirmed that no one else had been in the condo before or after this guest. They inspected the mirror and said their guess is that a suitcase, while on the luggage cart probably smashed into the mirror. The height of the crack fits with that guess. The frame of the mirror had been smashed. Everyone knows accidents can happen and usually guests buy insurance to cover accidents but these guests chose not to buy it. So I certainly understand their dismay at having to pay for a part of the mirror. We accepted from the guest a very small portion of the cost to replace this mirror. The balance will be paid by us. It was an unfortunate accident made worse by their refusing to own up to it. I am sorry this ruined their vacation. It certainly didn't make us happy but we tried to be understanding and fair. We strive to keep our condo in perfect condition for the enjoyment of our guests.

Very impressive

  • 5 of 5

The condo was impressive, clean, very nice to come up from the beach and relax.

The view of the beach and patio was our favorite. Beautiful views . It was ver relaxing. The parking became an issue when you left in the evening to have dinner. Parking was full.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the condo and the views.. Parking can become difficult all over Navarre Beach during July. But that's just because so many people love that area including us! Hope you return again in the future.
