Back in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time at Sound Escape. Another great stay. Everything we needed was there. We had plenty of room to relax. Johnny Huston's was a let down. Thailand's Best was still good. Crabs We Got Em in Pensacola Beach was excellent!! You have to stay here.

Excellent Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to stay! It is located in a quiet subdivision, and right on the beach. The house is clean, open, spacious. Sitting on the covered double decks is very enjoyable. The owners are very easy to work with. The calm sound beach is a plus.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Navarre for seven years and finally found a house we consider a favorite. The house itself is so inviting & cozy. The beach décor is everything you would want in a beach house. The views of the sound are spectacular. The grandchildren loved playing in the calm waters of the sound. Although we went to the ocean every day, we loved coming back to the house and cooking in the evening. The kitchen is stocked with every dish and appliance you would need. We've never stayed at a house that actually had a stocked pantry and relied on the honor system to replace what was used. Such a nice amenity. The pool area is very nice and well cared for. We loved, loved staying here and will definitely come back. The owners were very responsive to emails and very easy to work with. Many thanks to them for letting us stay at their house!

Spoiled in paradise!

  • 4 of 5

OMG!!! We found a little paradise. I'm never renting a condo again. The convenience of being right on the water was unbelievable. We walked to the Gulf a couple times, but we preferred staying at Sound Escape and enjoying the gentler waves. The house is beautiful and wonderfully stocked with everything you need. I plan on booking this house for all my future vacations.

The kids enjoyed playing in the sand and swimming. We used the community pool a few times. We ate at Johnny Huston's, The Shrimp Basket, and Thailand's Best. The Blue Angel's air show in Pensacola was awesome, as usual.

Wonderful Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have vacationed in the Florida panhandle for the last couple years, staying in beachfront condos. This year we wanted to try a beach house for a little more privacy. At first we wanted to try and find a place gulf front, but decided that since our young boys enjoyed spending time in the calm waters of the sound, we would try to find a place on the sound side of the island. After searching for awhile, we came upon Sound Escape!

What a great place! Small gated community was just what we were looking for and the house sits at the end of a cul-de-sac! When we arrived, the boys were so excited because the house literally sits feet from the water. Out the back door, a few feet to a set of steps that lead down to the SAND. When we wanted to swim and play in the gulf, it was just a short drive over to one of the many public beach access areas.

The house was Awesome! Clean, well decorated, and the colors were nice too. Not to mention the large oval Jacuzzi bathtub and huge shower in the master bathroom. Don't know how exactly to describe the view from the back balconies at sunset other than Awe Inspiring. Don't have to worry about beach accessories either, there are plenty in the garage area, from umbrellas to beach toys, skim boards, boogy boards, beach chairs and even crab traps, if you want to try your hand at that. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Sound Escape, and will be staying here again when the opportunity presents itself.

The property owners could not have been any better to deal with! They made the whole process extremely easy and were a pleasure to do business with.

Thank You Jim and Marjie for allowing us to stay in your fine home!

Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been going to Navarre Beach since 2008 and have rented several different beach house and by far this one was the best one yet. This will be our rental every year permitting. The owners are very easy to work with, they are very rapid with responding to any questions or concerns and the house was just breath taking inside and out. They have thought of everything to take all of your worries away from a fully stocked kitchen, laundry services to games and movies. The views from the house are just something you would have to see for yourself. The sound being right outside the back door was perfect for our 3 year old son. Much better than having to pack everything for the trip to the gulf every time he had the urge to go swimming. We are looking forward to next year!!!
