About the property

Quiet Top Floor - On The Beach - Simply Delightful

Emerald Surf 503

Our guests will enjoy a complimentary seven-day beach service of two chairs and umbrella from March to October ($150 value)

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. In 2015 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. In December 2016 we replaced the tub in the master bath with a five foot step-in shower like the hall bath.

• 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 with its uncrowded beaches and laid-back vibe for over 30 years from our home in Little Rock, and we stayed in Emerald Surf a half dozen times in various units before purchasing 503. We absolutely loved the top floor view, but with only five floors you still hear the surf and sea birds. The pelicans fly lazy figure-eights to gain altitude in the updraft from the onshore breeze against the side of the building.

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 Navarre Beach

We chose this unit for our 40th anniversary present. The past four years have seen extensive renovation and decorating. We are eager to use it for our family and friends and to offer this extension of our home to our special guests.

Perfect beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect. Larger than other condos we have stayed in with plenty of comfortable seating in the living room. It rained quite a bit while we were there, so we enjoyed that Netflix was set up on the smart TVs. The beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable. There is even a closet and chest with extra beach stuff: chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, nets, goggles, buckets, etc. I was worried about there being no ice maker, but we filled the trays once a day and had plenty, even for the cooler.

This condo complex is not new, but everything is clean and very well maintained. This unit is beautifully decorated. We would definitely stay here again.

The view is breathtaking...even in the rain. The balcony is huge and has great furniture. We ate out there every day. There were some elevator issues the first day, but it was fixed quickly. The beach is kind of narrow which I like because it’s fewer steps to the water.

I have zero negative things to say about this place.

The condo was exactly as described. The home was beautifully decorated, very clean, great linens and comfortable beds. Loved and enjoyed the patio furniture, complimentary beach service and extra beach supplies. The kitchen supplied all we needed and more.

I hope to return as I felt at home far away from home!!!! Thank you for opening your home to ours. Great memories were made to last a lifetime.

Emerald Surf 503 was perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip and will chose this unit again when we return. It was clean and comfortable with an amazing view. There was not one thing we could think of that was not available in the condo - it was stocked with everything! Thank you to the owners for such attention to detail and for providing such a wonderful place for our vacation.

Awesome condo with awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

If you are like me, you search and search for the perfect vacation condo. Search no more! This is the perfect place! This condo has everything you need and more...any kitchen item you need, comfy beds and furniture, walk in showers, a large balcony with quality furniture, (table for 4 and 2 rocking chairs) and the best view of the prettiest, blue water I’ve ever seen in Florida. It also has a closet full of beach stuff and comes with 2 beach chairs and umbrella service. The pool is very nice and warm. Great beach with lots of beautiful shells. And it’s not crowded!! We were there for spring break and there were never more than 15 groups of people on our whole beach!! Good restaurants in Navarre (Scooters and East Bay Crab House). Pensacola is a nice 20 minute drive away and if you want the hustle and bustle of Destin it’s 30 minutes to the East. To sum it up, our 16 year old boy said this is his new favorite vacation place. If you have or know a 16 year old boy, you know this is the best review a condo could get! lol

Owner's Response: Thanks for the glowing review, Karen. We furnished 503 as a second home for ourselves instead of just a rental investment, and we are overjoyed when someone visits and enjoys it as much as we do.

Third visit in four years

  • 5 of 5

This place is always being updated and improved upon by the owner. 5th floor view is breathtaking. Even when it rains, the balcony alone is worth the trip before you even walk out to the pool or the beach. But the sun usually manages to shine on Emerald Surf!

ES503 was exactly as described. We had absolutely no problems

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Surf 503 is a beautiful, comfortable and well maintained condo. The kitchen provided everything we needed to cook All our meals. The location is perfect. It has an Awesome view of the beach with beautiful sunrises and sunsets Easy access to the clean white sand beach which has the most gorgeous blue water and a bounty of seashells. It is a mile walk from the pier which is a great place to visit. This is the most relaxing family Christmas we have had. Thanks ES503 and Navarre Beach!
