Why Scott Christopher chose Navarre
After searching the Emerald coast for two years we decided that Navarre Beach would be our hide-out. We were eager to escape our businesses in Maine in the winter and were especially enchanted by the beauty of the beach and gulf as well as like its low key laid back feeling. We closed late in July in 2004. As we left the closing table my wife remarked that as long as we did not have a hurricane…”all would be great”. Unfortunately that wish was not to be fulfilled as 14 days later, (having never stayed a night in the property) we took a direct hit from hurricane Ivan. As a Florida native, hurricanes were nothing to be feared and I remember countless “hurricane parties” as a young boy that were really great fun. However hurricane Ivan was a storm of historic proportions and that coupled with our direct Gulf front location created unimaginable destruction. The repairs took a full 27 months. During the repair period with the building already in a damaged condition, two additional hurricanes hit Navarre adding to the destruction. When I came to survey the damage, there was no access to the island as the bridge was unpassable. A FEMA ferry took owners to their properties. If you can image, the elevator where you enter at the parking lot was accessible only by use of a ladder as the hurricane had washed approximately 12 feet of “earth” into the sound…(including all water mains, sewers and other under ground infrastructure. The front foundation pilings of the building were in the Gulf. The beach was gone. However we rebuilt better than before and never looked back, but regrettably know it will certainly happen again.
What makes this Condo unique
Navarre Beach is actually located on Santa Rosa Island a 40 mile barrier island bordered by Santa Rosa Sound and the ICW on one side and the Gulf on the other. The island stretches from Okaloosa County near Destin to the east and Ft Pickens to the West. Much of the island is Department of Defense (DOD) lands and is not accessible to the public. Navarre Beach is accessible by one of two bridges, the Navarre Bridge to the east and the Pensacola Beach Bridge to the west. There is a toll of $1.00 at the Pensacola Beach Bridge for access from the mainland. However there are no tolls to exit the island. The geography of the island is in large part responsible for its “quiet” nature of Navarre Beach. Bordered by the DOD to the east, and the Gulf National Seashore to the west, Navarre Beach is a unique oasis, constrained in size by its government neighbors. Much of the 1978 film Jaws 2 was filmed at Navarre Beach. Hotel scenes in the movie were filmed at the Navarre Beach Holiday Inn, a complex subsequently destroyed by Hurricane Ivan.

Location of condo is perfect! Well maintained and well furnished home with beautiful character. Owners were sweet to leave pie, cheese, and wine and called to check on our stay. We enjoyed our vacation very much!
Perfect weekend in the perfect spot. Condo was beautiful and exactly as described. Working with Scott & Jill was a breeze and they checked on us via phone to make sure everything was going well. Will definitely be staying here again.
A beautiful little slice of heaven. Hated to leave. The home has EVERYTHING one could possible need in a beach vacation condo. We utilized the chairs, umbrella and cooler each day we were there. The bed was very comfortable and having ice already ready in the freezer was a perfect! We were there for my husbands 60th birthday and our 33rd anniversary so we only used 1 bathroom and 1 bedroom. I cant vouch for the comfortableness of the other bed but everything was very clean. We left Navarre Beach when it was 85 degree's outside and landed in 38 degree Denver, then woke up to 6 inches of snow. Oh how I miss that beautiful beach home! We will be back next year. Thank you!!!!!!
JILL and Scott have a beautiful place right on the beach. Convenient for shopping, entertainment or just relaxing in a beautiful environment. Beautifully decorated but still comfortable.
They are wonderful hosts as well. Can’t say enough good things about it!
We loved this place. So peaceful and Jill and Scott were very helpful.
Nice place right on the beach
We liked our stay. The white sand beach is gorgeous. The place is as pictured. The champagne, cheese, and crumb cake left for us by the hosts were delicious. Publix is just 10 min drive. The place was really all we wanted and the host responds within minutes. And we saw dolphins swimming by! Thank you!
We ended up needing to do laundry and had to go get laundry detergent, so the future travelers might want to bring some with them.
