About Hank Dawson

The Bob Dawsons have always been 'beach people'. In the early days we traveled from Nashville to South Carolina but then discovered the Gulf coast. First Dauphin Island, AL and then, Navarre Beach. We were in love and Bob and Faffy purchased the property in 1976 and completed construction in 1977. The original house was destroyed by hurricane Opal in 1995 and rebuilt as it stands today in 1997. At first it was our private home but in 2003, we decided to open it to rental. We believe the Dawson House is truly one of the most livable rental houses on Navarre Beach.

Hank Dawson purchased this house in 1976

Why Hank Dawson chose North West Florida

Previous guests all rave about the open floor plan, the well stocked kitchen and the cleanliness of the Dawson House. Our cleaner literally treats the house as her own. She often spends her free time there to do that little something extra to make sure the house is perfect for our guests. Confidently we say you won't find a cleaner house on the beach.

What makes this house unique

The hot and cold outdoor shower has to be experienced. Something about showering with the gulf breeze blowing around you is like nothing else. And being able to rinse off the salt water and sand before going inside is a nice benefit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Dawsons for sharing your beautiful home - What a perfect place it is to hear the wonderful sound of the Gulf and sit on the covered deck and escape the rest of the world for awhile. The large living area was so nice to have our extended family gather in the evenings for dinner and puzzling - a new rocord for completing the 1000 piece Hometown puzzle - 23 hours- 4 adults' endeavor! This has been the best place ever in our many visits to Navarre Beach. Thank you!

Dawson house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dawson house may 10 to 17th for our grand daughters wedding The house was immaculent, well maintained and had a beautiful view of the ocean

The owner was great to work with and very considerate of our schedule. The house had absolutely everything needed and beach supplies. The outdoor shower was a wonderful bonus The set up of great room and bedrooms is perfect for a large family or couples. Thanks for a wonderful week and we certainly will come again We now know y they call it the emerald coast perfect green water and white sand

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Dawson House for a week during our spring break. My mom had her birthday while we were here and my husband and I celebrated our 7th anniversary here. This makes our second annual family trip and couldn't have asked for a better place to spend it. We had our own little paradise away from the busy beaches. Beautiful beach and wonderful home. We will be coming be coming back to this area.

Best Stay Ever

  • 5 of 5

We always stayed in PCB, but wanted to get away from all the people and traffic. This house was the perfect answer. It was by far the best place we have stayed to enjoy a week at the beach. The house is stocked with anything you might need. Things for the beach or games, puzzles or books for the evening. Loved the outdoor shower. The spacious gathering room was great because you were together, but could be doing different things. The big deck was great to enjoy the evenings. We can't wait to return.

Navarre Beach is a quiet beach destination. High Rise condominiums are over 2 miles away so our beach does not have umbrella after unbrella lined up in rows. There may be a few other people nearby but nothing like the crowds in the busier areas.
