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.

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.

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.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year in Emerald Surf #503. We love all the improvements that have been made. New flooring, new patio furniture, new paint. We love our yearly trip to Navarre and will always stay in Emerald Surf #503. This condo has everything that would need. The kitchen is very well stocked and the owners have put a lot of thought into what you need to make your stay comfortable. We were there the week that Hurricane Hermine was going on but our weather turned out to be great. We had awesome waves because of the storm but they were great to look at and to listen to. Thanks for the beach set up. That is a great addition. We will be back next year!

Great condo! We would stay here again!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was by far the nicest one we've stayed at in Navarre. Great beach front location, nicely furnished, great quiet beach! We would definitely recommend this condo to our friends and family, even though there were a couple issues. 1) The laundry had a terrible sour smell. The condo is furnished with a front washer and dryer which are renown for having serious smell issues. The towels were really bad. 2) There is not a ceiling fan in the master (even though there is one in the second bedroom). This would be an easy and inexpensive addition to the master.

Other than those two things the condo was really nice!

Owner's Response: We are aware of the potential odor problem with a front loading washing machine, but with the dryer stacked on top it had to be. We post instructions for wiping out the seal and leaving the door ajar after use, but understand that on a vacation the care and feeding of a washing machine is far from most of our guests' minds, and with that beach who can blame them! We provided the large tower fan rather than a ceiling fan to avoid an ugly visible conduit running across the ceiling that would be required because the ceiling is concrete. Just an aesthetic choice. Glad the week went well for you otherwise.

Gorgeous, Comfortable, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth stay in the Destin/Ft. Walton area, and our entire family agreed that it was our favorite location and favorite lodgings! The condo is beautiful - I love the blue and white color scheme - it is so relaxing. The balcony area is huge - plenty of room for relaxing in the breeze, enjoying the amazing view, and eating breakfast. We had everything we needed and then some here. Parking is easy, the pool is great for the kids, and the especially fair skinned members of our family appreciated that the pool is in the shade in the hot afternoons. Access to the beach is a short trot down the boardwalk. T-30 seconds to toes in the sand!

I can't imagine a better location - it was easy to get to off of the causeway, but felt far away from the crowds and "town". Yet, eateries and grocery stores were just a couple miles away. We also wandered across the street to the Shark Bites food truck a couple times for their outstanding breakfast wraps. Best still was the proximity to the Gulf Islands National Seashore, just a few miles west of the condo, and one of the most beautiful drives I've ever been on. We saw more birds and wildlife on this visit than we have ever seen before, and fewer people. A win-win for us!

I also have to add that we left behind a small stuffed animal (after spending 20 minutes looking for it and giving up). Housekeeping texted us within 20 minutes of us leaving to let us know that they had found it, and offered to mail it to us. I was so impressed!

We highly recommend this condo and the Navarre area to anyone who asks. Terry and Dorothy are great hosts. We're already planning to stay here again next summer!
