Quiet Top Floor - On The Beach - Simply Delightful

Enjoy a panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico from the 5th-floor balcony of 503, a two-bedroom, two-bath top floor condo situated on a quiet stretch of white sugar-sand beach. Last winter we added a new tile floor throughout with area rugs and put a new king-size bed in the guest bedroom, making 503 perfect for two couples or a family.

• Plenty of Comfortable Seating in Living Area, including two La-Z-Boy loungers

About Terry Johnson

We purchased this unit in February 2014. We have been coming regularly to Navarre Beach for over 25 years from our home in Little Rock, and we've stayed in Emerald Surf in various units over the past three years.

This low-rise condo (only 5 floors with 9 units per floor) with over 300' of beach frontage provides the quiet, low beach density we have been coming to Navarre Beach to enjoy.

Terry Johnson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Terry Johnson chose North West Florida

We chose this unit for our 40th anniversary present. We are eager to use it for our family and friends and to offer this extension of our home to our special guests.

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property for several years. The condo is updated and has just about anything you could possibly need from kitchen utensils and appliances to beach items. The furniture is comfortable and the beds are great for sleeping. The outside furniture on the deck is great. Being right on the beach is a big plus. On the sound side, there are sidewalks for walking and riding bikes. Only a short drive to the National Seashore, grocery and drug stores, etc. Owners are great to deal with. Our favorite vacation spot....

Had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic condo. Easily the most beautifully decorated at Emerald Surf. Owner is great to work with. Love Emerald Surf, have stayed there many times. Only 5 stories, fewer people than the large condos. Will definitely stay in this unit each time in the future. By far the most comfortable condo. Loved it.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

You know how Navarre is Florida's best-kept secret? Condo 503 Emerald Surf is the best-kept secret for spending your vacation at Navarre. From the moment we booked we felt like the owners Terry and Dorothy cared that our trip would go off without any problems. The condo is beautiful, and the pictures on the website are accurate. The kitchen is one of the most equipped kitchens I've ever seen. You don't have to bring anything. It is all provided. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms and showers were roomy and beautiful.

The view is the best. In our opinion, you can't get a better view. The balcony is big and spacious. Lots of seating.

Everything you need for the beach is there. Buckets, chairs, umbrellas, nets to catch those shells and more. Make sure you sit down and leaf through the manual they provide. It will save you a lot of confusion. We have never seen a better put together manual than the one they provide. Gives you all the information you need.

We will never book anywhere but here again. Highly recommend you do the same.

Three weeks of comfort and sunshine

  • 5 of 5

After checking out several condos on the web, we selected Emerald Surf 503 for our three week vacation at Navarre Beach. We were not disappointed. The beautifully decorated beach front condo has a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable furnishings and bedding, amazing beach views (sunrise/sunset), and a roomy balcony. We especially enjoyed the keyless entry (no worries about losing your key on the beach) and the convenience of a complimentary beach set-up. The owners are well-organized and sent all the essentials to us before we arrived--key access info, parking pass, directions to condo. We had 21 days of sunshine and calm waters and look forward to returning next fall.

Wonderful Vacation at Navarre Beach

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our FL vacation at Navarre Beach. What a great condo! Terrific location and the gulf view was awesome. We especially liked sitting on the balcony early in morning and later in the evening. The condo was clean and I really liked the tile floor throughout. The master bed was very comfortable. So glad there was a washer/dryer in condo - one of our requirements when we look for a vacation rental. Appreciate the owners complimentary beach chairs/umbrella. Also glad there were hair dryers in both baths. We did have a question while there and the owners got back to us in a timely manner. The shelling was great and very relaxing on the beach. We did go as far as Destin to shop and it's not that great of a distance. I would highly recommend this location and unit. Will try to stay here again.
