Jimmy Buffett may have had Navarre Beach in mind when he took off for that famous weekend. Navarre Beach is a barrier island like no other on the Florida Panhandle. With a relaxed family oriented atmosphere, yet with plenty to do, it has 20 miles of federally protected beaches to run, walk, or bike.

Awake to breathtaking sunrises. Spend the day with activities in any direction or simply relax on the pristine white beaches while gazing at the emerald blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There are no crowds to spoil your well earned vacation. Enjoy beautiful sunsets and drift off to sleep at night to the sound of the surf gently lapping outside your bedroom window.

This Pearl condominium unit offers privacy and spaciousness in it's dramatic 1400 square foot area with 9 foot ceilings. There is nothing ordinary about this condominium. This upscale tropical unit will meet the most discriminating tastes. The master bedroom has a separate dressing area, large walk in closet, whirlpool tub for 2 and a separate large shower. This prestigious complex is within easy walking distance of two of our island restaurants. The pool is OPEN year round and heated during the winter season as is the spa year round.

We are fully-equipped and to meet all of your needs in this home-away-from-home. The complex's exercise room is equipped with weights, bike and treadmill. We have beach chair and umbrella service available on the beach in front of the complex. So grab your suntan lotion and flip flops and head to the beach. Vacationing at this latitude will definitely have a positive effect on your attitude! E-mail or call for more information.

About Pete Lenny

I live in Jonesboro, GA. I am a native on New Jersey, a graduate of St Joseph's University and settled in GA after serving 8 years in the US Navy as a pilot. I am a retired Delta Airlines pilot. My daughters are all graduates of the University of Georgia

Pete Lenny purchased this condo in 2005

Why Pete Lenny chose Florida

I chose Navarre Beach because of it's unique environment. It is much more laid back and private than the other beaches along the Emerald Coast. It's the perfect place for a real family vacation without the hassle of the 'party crowds'. It is so great to walk out the back of the Pearl and walk directly onto Navarre Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family only had so much time to spare for a vacation, and when I found the Pearl Unit# 1404, I was blessed to find an owner who was more than willing to accommodate to our needs. Mr. Lenny not only provided every bit of information possible for his rental via the Home Away app, but he responded quickly to every question I asked with the most professional of emails. Easy to work with, Mr. Lenny was able to find a slot for our short vacation time frame and had my wife and I convinced this would be the right vacation rental for us. We were right! The unit was beautifully decorated and laid out in a manner that was perfect for my family of 4. Located in a building that was built for convenience, the location and design made for easy transport of family and beach items every time we needed to get down to the water. The area's beach was never over crowded and was kept in good order. The building had a very friendly staff. I would recommend this rental to anyone considering vacationing in the panhandle. Just as nice, if not nicer, than the overpriced places between Destin and Panama City.

Beautiful does not even begin to describe this condo!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. There is 5 of us. 2 adults and 3 teenagers. This condo was definitely big enough and had everything we needed. The view could not have been any better. The condo was very clean and the set up was great. We would highly recommend this property and will stay here again, hopefully next year.

Not impressed!

  • 1 of 5

I found many things that were not clean... the drapes in living room and master bedroom were in desperate need of cleaning... the closet door casing in guest bedroom was nasty as well as the blinds in the guest bedroom... there were stains on the guest bedroom sheets. The can opener did not work and there was not a hand held opener for me to use. The ice maker also had a sign on it stating it was out of order. I found dried spaghetti noodles in the colander in cabinet and spaghetti sauce on one of the skillets and lids in the cabinet. Also I was not impressed with the cleanliness of the outside pool and surrounding area including the lounge chairs. I felt like for the amount of money we spent to stay at this condo for a week, things should have been way cleaner than they were. Because I have a 16 month old who was constantly playing on the floor and touching everything... the lack of cleanliness was a real issue for me! We enjoyed the beach part of our stay and Navarre Beach in general but would not recommend staying at the Pearl.

Owner's Response: I first and most importantly want to apologize about the experience my guest had while staying at the Pearl. Our goal is for every guest to have a relaxing enjoyable experience and for the past 12 years that is the common response we received. To follow up on their review, I would like to note the following: I received the following message (no pictures were included) from this guest 1 day after check in --- ".... I noticed a few cleaning issues... and have taken pictures... I know it says to contact the cleaning lady Michele but I was just going to make you aware also... nothing that has to be tended to right now...." There is no excuse for the dried spaghetti found by my guests. The culprit appears to have been a faulty dishwasher and a new dishwasher was installed on July 17, 2017. New electric and manual can openers were replaced a day after we were notified. The drapes issue is mainly the additional blackout material on the back side of the drape. New blackout drapes were installed by 8/10/17. The sheets stain appears to have been a rust line on one white sheet. Those sheets have been removed and replaced. The blinds and closet casing were clean after further inspection, but received a vigorous cleaning to make sure they are up to future guest’s standards. The Hospitality App (under Misc) states: "Bar ice maker is inop (on purpose, guests were never sure if ice was clean). The ice maker in freezer IS operative." The Pearl management team replied that this is the first negative comment received this summer. Post check confirmed that the pool has nothing that could be considered as dirty or not clean. My guest waited 17 days to notify me, by review, of their displeasure, initially saying, 'nothing needed to be tended to right now.' I feel that the criticisms would have been more constructive had we been given an opportunity to correct them when 1st noticed. We cannot correct what we do not know. Once again our goal is for every guest to have a great experience, and I wish this guest would have notified the cleaning crew of the items in question directly, they would have been taken care of immediately. I am hopeful that 60+ four and five star reviews will outweigh one poor review. And we welcome all guests to continue to enjoy all that The Pearl and Navarre Beach have to offer.

Vacation stay 6/3-6/10

  • 4 of 5

The unit was very clean and in order when we arrived. Instructions of what to do when we arrived were simple and made getting into the unit a breeze. The furnishings were well maintained. Some of our group enjoyed the pool and hot tub as much as the beach. Overall The Pearl was a great and relaxing place to stay. The only problem we had, was entry into the ocean. The beach bank was steep and dropped off. As you went out you got to shallow water.

Owner's Response: Entry to the Gulf (after you cross the beach dune by wood bridge) The entry into our water/beach area changes weekly, and sometimes daily, depending upon weather, storms, direction of the wind. Some things we have no control over but we are glad you enjoyed the things we do have control over!
