'But there’s that 'One Particular Harbor'

So far but yet so near,

I can see the day when my hair’s full gray

And I finally disappear...'

Those lyrics from one of our favorite Jimmy Buffett songs, reminds me that everyone needs a place 'to get away to'. A shelter from the ordinary rush of life’s demands. Maybe you’ve found that place and have been going to it for years. For those who haven’t or for those who have felt for a long time that their favorite get away has become too crowded, let me introduce you to #705 Navarre Towers on Navarre Beach. Once you cross the Navarre Beach bridge and see the 3 mile stretch of residential beach, you’ll understand how it feels so far away, yet close to the action of the Emerald Coast.

Located between Destin and Pensacola, Navarre Beach has the beautiful white beaches without the crowds. It is only a three mile stretch of beach that sits between the Gulf Islands National Seashore on the west and Eglin Air Force Base land on the east. It is a classic barrier island beach that is still unspoiled by commercial development. While primarily residential, it is less than 30 minutes away to Pensacola or the Fort Walton, Destin area. Even in the high season of summer there is little congestion on the roads yet plenty to do.

With over 300 feet of gulf front and only 84 units, Navarre Towers is one of the least congested condominiums on Navarre Beach.

The condo is direct ocean front on the 7th floor. The unit is a 1360 square foot, two bedroom, two bath floor plan plus balcony. It has nine foot ceilings. The view from the private balcony is spectacular! You will enjoy privacy and breathtaking views of the ocean, beach, and surf. There are 7 residences per floor.

The condo has been professionally decorated and furnished. We decorate in a 'beachy elegant' style that captures the beach vacation spirit but has a high quality look and feel to it. This is not just another rental!

The unit has high-speed, wireless internet, so be sure to bring your laptop!

Everything in the condo is upscale!! There is tile throughout the condo with custom tile in the bedrooms, and beautiful furniture and decor in every room. Linens, towels, kitchen supplies, electronics are always kept up. The bedrooms are elegant, a little tropical and fun. The walls of the living and dining areas have been done in a textured, Irish mist, faux finish. The living area has 9 foot ceilings, crown moldings and full length, ceiling to floor sliding glass doors that afford spectacular views of the beach and ocean.

The large master bedroom has a king-size bed. The second bedroom also has a king size bed. The living area has a queen sleeper sofa which allows the condo to comfortably sleep six.

We have given great attention to the details, too. There are ample linens, pillows, blankets, kitchen towels, dishes, coat hangers and closet space for everyone. The kitchen has lots of cabinets and is equipped with everything you will need to stay for a week or a month. In addition to the refridgerator and range, you will have a microwave, icemaker, coffee maker, blender, washer, dryer, sharp knives, towels, and dishwasher at your fingertips.

The facility at Navarre Towers is a highly manicured, gated complex. It boasts of a large Gulf front heated pool, two lighted tennis courts and a grilling station by the pool. The beach in front is plentiful, beautiful and pure white! Beach service for chairs and umbrellas is available from spring through fall by contacting "Sunset Beach Service" by phone 850-244-0452 or through the internet. Just out the front gate is a jogging/walking path that goes for miles into the National Seashore Conservation area.

We share bookings in this complex with other owners and will coordinate bookings of multiple units. So, bring along family and friends to enjoy this get-a-way together!

This property is an extension of our home in Atlanta and we welcome you as special guests that deserve personal attention. Our goal is to give you an excellent value and to exceed your expectations, as you vacation in this beautiful place.

#705 Navarre Towers that 'One Particular Harbor'. Beautiful, serene and close to

every thing .... without living in it.

About The Owner

I'm a native of Baton Rouge, La. and a graduate of LSU. My wife, Paula and I together with our two sons have lived in Peachtree City Georgia, a southern suburb of Atlanta, for 17 years. I am a pilot by profession having served first as an Air Force Pilot and for the last 30 years, an airline pilot, for Delta Airlines. I currently fly International routes, mostly to Europe, for Delta.

We are avid supporters of LSU, where our oldest son graduated from and UGA, where our youngest son currently attends.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Florida Main North West

I have always loved the Panhandle of Florida and it's beaches. As a high schooler and college student in Louisiana we always went to Pensacola. When the boys were young it was such a joy to continue that tradition with them. As the Panhandle matured over the past 25 years it became very clear what areas were going to maintain their old Florida charm, not get too crowded, yet continue to offer the beautiful beaches and water that we all want to see. To this day, Navarre has been true to those needs.

What makes this condo unique

Not crowded, even in the summer months compared to anywhere on the Panhandle. Fishing in the sound or beach. Taking the jet skis west in the Santa Rosa Sound to Pensacola Beach and driving them up on the beach for lunch at our favorite restaurant.

2000 feet of uninhabited pure white sand in front and to the East of Navarre Towers where the Holiday Inn use to be before Ivan.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Doug, I just wanted to send you a email saying how beautiful the condo is. It was like walking into paradise. Thank you so much for the lovely card and the bottle of wine. Thanks, Melanie

Beautiful condo, owner awesome to work with

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my daughter and her husband and my granddaughter from December 26 til January 1. The condo was beautiful, spacious and clean. Kitchen was well stocked. Balcony was nice and view of the beach was beautiful. Weather was mostly good and we enjoyed our week very much. Sampled a few of the local restaurants, did some shopping and a lot of relaxing. Played on the beach, collected shells and listened to the relaxing roar of the surf. A couple days the gulf was actually dead calm and the water was like a mirror! Unfortunately, I did not see one dolphin! Navarre is a beautiful beach and nice and laid back. Condo building well maintained and secure. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review, Jolene! So glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at the condo over New Years. While most of our visits to the beach are in warmer months, we so love the winter on the beach, as well. Beautiful and tranquil! Thanks so much for your visit. Hope to hear from you again. Doug D

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Navarre Towers. The condo was spacious & clean. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The view from the balcony is beautiful. We fought over who got to sit on the lounge chair on balcony :) My daughters enjoyed the tennis court. Overall, we were very pleased!

One Particular Harbor at Navarre Towers

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! This condo is beautiful, the view is amazing, and the owners instructions made our arrival a breeze. We loved having king size beds in both rooms. Our girls getaway was so much fun, we are planning on making this an annual trip.

We were so happy to arrive and find the condo clean and comfortable. The balcony was

great while enjoying morning coffee. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate, but

it was fun to get away with our grand-daughter. She especially enjoyed the long walks

on the lovely beach.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with Doug's condo. It definitely met all our expectations. Nice and spacious with comfortable furniture and a well-stocked kitchen. Each unit affords good privacy. The complex was quiet and well-maintained. The views spectacular. The slow-paced non-commercialized location exactly what we were looking for. We will definitely keep it at the top of our list of desirable beach communities and rental properties. Doug was quick to respond to communications, and we found dealing with him very easy. We had an elderly family member with us, and the property was accommodating to his needs. The only think lacking to make it handicapped accessible is a shower. There are only bathtubs. (It worked for our loved one, but if someone cannot get in and out of a tub, it would present a problem.) Thanks for sharing your vacation home.
