About Ridlon & Carin Kiphart
As The Adventure Couple, we have over 20 years experience in the luxury hotel industry and wanted to create a beach home with the look and feel of the 5-Star boutique beach resorts we have stayed at over the years. We wanted to have a home on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Every year, we travel and guide people to the most exotic places in the world but always look forward to coming back to our beach home.
Ridlon & Carin Kiphart purchased this House in 2016
Why Ridlon & Carin Kiphart chose Navarre
We've always wanted to design and build our own luxury custom beach home. This house isn't a "vacation rental." It's our home that we love sharing with other special people. It's not designed, built or decorated like a "vacation rental." It's designed and furnished like our personal home because it is. On this special island with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, we carefully chose a location to build our home because not all home sites are equal. We wanted water views from every room in the house and access to both the Gulf and Sound. We wanted to be in a quite location without crowds or traffic passing in front of the house. The home is crafted to take advantage of the beach and dune views and wrapped with over 1000 square feet of covered porches and a private sun deck off the grand master suite. The perfect place to relax and unwind.

Great family vacation home
This is a beautiful home with many accommodations. It is roomy and comfortable. The home owners are easy to get in touch with and they seem to really want you to enjoy your stay. This is our second stay in this house and hopefully it won’t be the last! I would highly recommend this vacation home.
Thank you, Rebecca, we love having you stay at our home and come back at any time!
Memories of a lifetime
A group of 9 women celebrated a big birthday. There was more than enough room for us to spread out and be comfortable. Can’t wait to do it again.
A great beach home with great amenities. Well above the rest.
Beautiful Home Perfect Vacation
We had an amazing time on our family vacation! We had 13 people total 5 of those being kids ranging from 2-16. The inside of the house was set up perfectly and we never felt crowded. The kids loved the pool and sand area out back and there was plenty of sand toys there for them. The adults enjoyed the pool and bar area down there as well! Was kind of a pain every time we had to use the restroom that we had to dry off and go upstairs through a bedroom but other than that we loved the house!
The walk was short to the beach but we drove most of the time since we had all the kids and stuff to haul down there. One day while out there a manatee swam right by us which was pretty awesome, and also while we walked out on the pier we saw dolphins!
Thank you so much for offering your house as a vacation rental! It was beautiful and perfect for us!!
Thank you for the great review Stephanie! The Tiki bar and pool are definitely favorites. Unfortunately, building codes don't allow us to have a bathroom on the ground level, otherwise, there definitely would be one there. We would welcome you back to Sea Gem any time!
This home is amazing.
I stumbled on this home after days of searching for not only a large enough home for 3 families, but the perfect beachtown as well. This was our first time to Navarre, and we found a gem! This house checked every box for me: large, clean, well stocked, pool, hot tub, walking distance to beach. We ended up placing a huge grocery order before we left Ohio and picked it up on the way to the house. They have a huge pantry, plenty of cabinet and counter space and everything you need for cooking meals. Having 5 kids in our party ages 6-8, we ate most of our meals at home. They also have everything a bartender would need to make drinks. The kids loved the bunk beds built into the hallway. While enjoying the grill, pool and hot tub, we’d put music on the tv out there. They had tons of pool/beach toys and beach chairs, and even a wagon to bring it all in to the beach! We walked across the street several times and took the kids exploring at the Sound. Great fishing there and we saw lots of dolphins playing right in front of us! No paying a large fee for a dolphin tour now. And then we have the ocean side facing the back of the house. Crystal clear turquoise water. We went in early August and the beach was NEVER crowded at all. If you want to drive to the beach, parking is so easy and convenient. We drove most days because going to the beach for a day with 5 kids is such a production. Make sure to visit the pier. It’s a 2 min drive down the beach. So much fun and gorgeous. Also take your kids to the big floating bounce house in the ocean. Us adults had more fun than the kids! Our favorite part of the trip was renting a pontoon boat for the 11 of us and taking it out for the day. We found our own private island (someone labeled it Pigg Island), and we hung out, swam, fished all day long. Even when we were chilling at home, it felt like vacation. We opened up the walls and had a wonderful breeze most days. Nothing like smelling the salt in the air and seeing the water glistening in the distance. I have been telling everyone about this home and already want to go back. Navarre is our new favorite vacation spot! Thanks to Carin and Kip for being such great hosts and trusting us with your beautiful home. I appreciate your quick email replies anytime I had a question leading up to our trip. Even your housekeeper was a sweetheart. We will be back. You will be hearing Nikki from Ohio sent us!!!
