About the property

5 bedroom, 4 bath waterfront beach house with Gulf and Sound views

This waterfront beach retreat is located on a barrier island adjacent to the Gulf Islands National Seashore, and is just steps away from the Gulf of Mexico and the Santa Rosa Sound. The 5 Bedroom/4 Bath home on Navarre Beach has an open floor plan with a large Kitchen, Living and Dining area with high ceilings, and wrap-around windows which offer amazing views. The Living Room has a built-in entertainment center with a big screen HDTV, surround sound, and a stereo system with speakers and volume controls throughout the house and outside patios. The well equipped kitchen is a chef's dream and perfect for entertaining, with upscale stainless appliances, double oven, custom granite counter tops, and a wine cooler. The house also has high-speed Internet at no additional charge.

This beautiful custom home has windows everywhere so you will enjoy views of the Gulf of Mexico, Santa Rosa Sound (Gulf coast intracoastal waterway), and the untouched natural preserve right outside your doors. From the Living and Dining area, you walk out onto a gorgeous natural stone balcony which overlooks the Santa Rosa Sound and Gulf of Mexico, offering panoramic views and fabulous sunsets.

You have your own private beach along the Santa Rosa Sound behind the house,

which provides easy access to swimming, fishing, or simply relaxing. You can even bring

your boat and park it behind the house. The community pool is just a few steps from your front door.

Three bedrooms are located upstairs. The master bedroom has a king bed and private balcony overlooking the intracoastal waterway and Gulf of Mexico. The master bath is absolutely beautiful, with travertine floors and vanities, and a shower of natural stone. The other 2 upstairs bedrooms also have king beds and private baths. On the main floor you have two bedrooms, both with king beds.

This house is located at the end of the island, immediately adjacent to the Gulf Islands National Seashore, which cannot be developed. This provides wonderful opportunities for you and your family to explore unspoiled nature at its best. It also allows for breathtaking views of the natural untouched beach and water, and lovely sunsets over the sand dunes, Santa Rosa Sound, and Gulf of Mexico.

We live in the local area and are available to handle any special requests and provide immediate assistance if needed.

All reservations during high season must be for a minimum of 1 week, from Saturday through Saturday. During off-season, we will accept reservations for less then 7 nights.

Please note that renters must be a minimum of 25 years of age. We do not rent to college, high school, or other student groups unless they

are accompanied by their parents. Also be aware of some construction in the community that should be completed by the end of 2018. For questions, please call 850-207-0807.

Wonderful Family Vacation in Navarre - Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults and 2 children in our party and rented this home the last week in Sept. It was a wonderful trip and everyone had very positive things to say about this home and it's location. We prepared meals just about every night and it is a very well equipped kitchen. The owners were thoughtful enough to have things like garbage bags, spices and even some dish soap and dishwasher detergent available (those little things add up!) They were also thoughtful enough to include a binder that had great information about nearby restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, etc. The beds were quite comfortable and there was plenty of space for everyone. The views were amazing and we were able to do some fishing right outside. There were also plenty of beach towels to use as well as tons and tons of boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys for the kids to play with, you really don't need to load your car with beach gear if you rent this home and the owners were extremely pleasant to work with. We highly recommend this home!

Once again a great vacation in Navarre. Absolutely the best house in the best location. Spent as much time in the back yard as we did on the beach this year. Excellent for children to play in the water, sand, and easy for the parents to watch them. Love this place. Be back next year. Owners were great and a pleasure to talk to. Thanks Skip and Deb.

Awesome Family Vacation House!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is one of the most thoughtfully laid out vacation homes I have encountered. The pictures cannot do the views justice and the space that is inside the house is so open with views everywhere. It is a quiet beautiful place that even with 5 couples you never have to feel like you are on top of each other plenty of space inside and out. The owners made check in so easy the only thing you do is show up on time at the house which is what we did and was so nice to arrive and find everything ready for our vacation to begin. Very clean and well equipped inside and anything beach wise you can think of cart, toys, cooler, fishing nets, chairs all there waiting. The community pool was kept as clean as any pool I've seen on the beach and with the small neighborhood was never that busy and nice to meet some of the neighbors there. We brought our SUP/kayak and the sound was fantastic to play around in with that as the water stays pretty calm and very shallow in parts. My only complaint would be how fast this house makes the week go by with beds so comfortable, no alarm clocks, sitting in paradise Could have stayed all summer for sure hope to be able to return. Thanks to Skip and Debbie for a great vacation home!!

Great family house

  • 5 of 5

Having a wonderful time in a beautiful home! Great accommodations for everyone. There's fishing - which isn't the best in Fla. but it's at your back door. Also crabbing - not the best, but fun for the kids. We expected the pool and beach to be farther than it actually is. We have a crew of 12 - lots of space for everyone. The kitchen is well-equipped as we love to cook. Balconies w/ great views and covered porch downstairs - really appreciated while fishing in the backyard. Building some wonderful memories here and hoping to come back again. Skip and Debbie and wonderful to work with too. Had trouble with some of the TV's until we got smart and read the folder providing info! Thanks again Skin and Debbie as I do believe ya'll thought of everything we needed including the wine cooler!

Loved Navarre

  • 3 of 5

We rented this house for a week leading up to our wedding. First, the house is beautiful and true to pictures posted. It sits at the end of the stretch of navarre and a lot of days we were the only people in sight at the beach (which is beautiful with white sand beaches and Caribbean blue water). We have rented various places in Florida including Sarasota, Ft Myers and Destin for years before discovering navarre and we are sold. The only thing that kept me from rating it high was that compared to previous rentals, the owner was difficult at times. We hosted our wedding reception to the side of the house in the sand for about 40 people. Despite cleaning the grounds ourselves both and before and after the wedding as well as the house itself after having 8 people living there for the week, we were charged an extra cleaning fee. A thousand dollar credit hold was pending on my credit card for a total of two and a half weeks. I emailed multiple times to inquire what incurred the extra fee, as we followed all check out procedures to the letter and even spent extra time cleaning and sweeping. I was told this would be looked into and then never received an answer and our credit card was processed the charge. As other reviews have stated, the house is great and close to the beach having rented a dozen times in Florida and never having an issue with extra fees or extended credit card holds, we plan to rent elsewhere next time we visit Navarre.

Owner's Response: Our policy and rental agreement clearly state that if any damage is done or excessive cleaning is required, a portion of the deposit will be kept to cover these expenses. We charge a $1,000 deposit for weddings and the deposit is not collected, but simply 'Authorized' on a credit card. After check-out, this authorization expires after 1-4 weeks, depending on the bank which issued the credit card. We did keep $75 of the deposit because after they departed, garbage was overflowing from the garbage container into piles on the street. We had to pay someone to haul away the garbage, so the next guests would not have a container full of garbage. We also withheld a $100 fee for excessive cleaning. There were cigarette butts and other trash which had to be picked up in the yard, and the inside of the house was messier and dirtier than normal, which required additional time and effort by the housekeeping staff. We strive to provide a clean and sanitary house for new guests when they check-in, and the housekeeping staff charges the owner additional cleaning fees when this occurs. These additional fees are rare, even for weddings. We understand that the additional guests attending the wedding and using the house facilities do create a messier and dirtier house, but we must pass along the extra cleaning costs to the guests when this occurs. These are fees that we must pay, and we do not believe these charges were excessive under the circumstances.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on the Gulf Coast for 20 years and this is by far the nicest place we have ever stayed. The house was immaculate from top to bottom and stocked with everything we could have wanted. We loved the huge refrigerator and double ovens and it was really nice to have a wine cooler! The photos of the house are beautiful, but it is even nicer and more spacious in person than it looks online. One of our favorite parts of the house was the huge balcony which we enjoyed every evening. The views of the Sound and the Gulf are gorgeous. The neighborhood is at the far west end of Navarre Beach where it is all residential, and we felt like we had our own private beach most days. I have never stayed anywhere on the beach that at 7am, my footprints were the first ones of the day. We loved how peaceful the area was, and how pristine the water and sand were. There were chairs, umbrellas and beach toys provided for our use which was great because we didn't have to pack as much. The owners put together a book with information on area restaurants and things to do along with detailed instructions on how to work the tv, internet, and sound system. They were great to work with and answered questions quickly. We didn't want to leave at the end of the week and would definitely like to come back again soon. Thank you Skip and Debbie!
