About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Want to stay in paradise? Come to our 702 Navarre Towers condo.

The view is spectacular from our 7th-floor balcony. We are located

directly on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. You can watch the beautiful sunrise right from the master bedroom window or balcony. The beach is right below your balcony with its world-famous, sugar-white sand and clear, emerald blue/green water. Here you will find all the amenities of a

perfect Florida vacation, but without the traffic and crowds.

This large, two-bedroom condominium comes fully furnished with all

you will need and has two full baths, a newly installed beautiful granite kitchen, and a private balcony equipped with a table, four chairs, and a chaise lounge. The master suite features a king-size bed, built-ins,

vanity area, whirlpool tub with hand held shower, large full length

windows overlooking the beach, and separate sliding glass doors to the

balcony also overlooking the Gulf. The guest room has a king-size

bed, a private entrance into the guest bathroom and a stunning view of Santa Rosa Sound. The guest bathroom has an over-sized bathtub and the sink area has a new beautiful granite countertop. The great room sofa converts into a queen size bed.

There are also 4 televisions with cable in both bedrooms, the living room

and the dining room. There is high speed internet for those who bring their lap top computers.

For those who enjoy exercising we have a large, heated pool (weather permitting) next to the beach, two full-size lighted tennis courts, a fully equipped fitness center, and a bike trail to Pensacola Beach along unspoiled

natural seashore. We also have fitness tapes and workout mats

stored for your use.

Navarre Beach is the perfect getaway for those who value privacy.

We are a small community nestled between Gulf Islands National

Seashore's eight miles of pristine beach, and Navarre State Park.

However, nightlife and shopping is a short drive away. The town of

Navarre is just across the sound, and Pensacola and Destin are less

than 30 minutes away.

Come and visit us. Make this your home-away-from-home to

rejuvenate, relax, and have fun!! This condo is being managed by the Mainquists for the owners, Michael and Alice Vaughn.

We enjoyed our stay at the Paradise On The Gulf very much. The condo was beautiful and very well equipped with everything we needed. Loved the awesome view from the balcony. We spent many hours there just relaxing. If you want peace and quiet this place is perfect. I didn't give it five stars because the sleeper sofa mattress needs replaced and we ended up driving to a friends to borrowing an air mattress. We will definitely be back. Hopefully the water will be better next time as we had to deal with lots of seagrass and cloudy water.

This is the first time we've ever done a trip at Christmas time & it was wonderful. Before we even left, I received a call from the owner, Michael, asking us to stay over another night because he believed we were checking out on New Year's Eve & he and his wife didn't want us driving on that night due to safety. We were actually scheduled to check out on New Year's Day but it was so kind & thoughtful of them to care so much about us, perfect strangers, that they didn't want us to drive on the most dangerous night of the year. The owners get a 10 out of 10!

So does the condo! It's beautiful & comfortable (I'm not well, so comfy & relaxing is a MUST for me.). The fixtures, finishings & decor were just stunning! I LOVED the master suite shower & vanity. If I were to be so fortunate as to own a condo down in Navarre, I'd love to take some elements from this condo. The storage it has is AMAZING!!! If you're looking to snowbird, this would be awesome for you!

Our teen got the 2nd bedroom & was spoiled by the luxury of the bed & bathroom that's attached to it.

The kitchen is STUNNING! You have EVERYTHING you need to cook great meals!

The view of the gulf is breathtaking, serene & relaxing. Just what the Dr. ordered

We had a light bulb go out in the bathroom & I called on that only because the bathroom is darker in decor & the extra bulb was helpful. I called in the evening & they were there the next morning at 9 am. I'm only mentioning this tiny thing to show how wonderful, friendly, & prompt they were about coming out to fix such a minor issue.

There's a closet located across from their door that has all kinds of fun stuff to play & relax on the beach with. The condo door is a keyless entry which is wonderful when going up & down from the beach. Although it was Christmas, the temps were in the mid 70s. We even got in the gulf a few times. It made for great shelling. Dear friends of ours live in Pensacola & they came for dinner & just fawned over the beauty of the condo.

All in all, this trip was perfect from beginning to end. You can't go wrong if you rent this condo. We're coming back in for Thanksgiving with an extended family so we can't stay here but when we're able to come back (financially, two trips in a year is too much.) just the three of us, my husband, our 15 year old daughter & myself, this is where we'll stay...unless you want to trade some of her artwork for a week's stay. ;o)

Thank you for your opening your lovely home to us. God Bless You

Florida's hidden gem

  • 4 of 5

Navarre Beach has the turquoise water and white sands that Panama City & Destin have but without the crowds. While there are grocery stores, a Walmart and restaurants just across the causeway in Navarre, Pensacola is only a 20 minute drive away with lots of dining and entertainment options. If you are looking for a beautiful beach without the crowds, this is your place.

Navarre Towers is getting some age on it but is well maintained. Kevin & Debbie's unit is clean, well decorated and furnished and they had just remodeled the guest bath before our arrival with a large whirlpool tub and shower (better than the master suite bath which needs remodeling). The kitchen has granite countertops, new appliences, and all the cooking utensils you need. The living room has leather couches, tile floors, a flat screen (in the master bedroom as well) and a great deck overlooking the beach. The units are offset so you can't see into other units and the condo is well insulated for sound. Beds were comfortable and we slept with the doors open listening to the waves crashing. We used the tennis courts, swimming pool and gym.

We would definately return and highly recomend Kevin & Debbie's units.
