Why Scott Christopher chose Navarre

After searching the Emerald coast for two years we decided that Navarre Beach would be our hide-out. We were eager to escape our businesses in Maine in the winter and were especially enchanted by the beauty of the beach and gulf as well as like its low key laid back feeling.

We closed late in July in 2004. As we left the closing table my wife remarked that as long as we did not have a hurricane…”all would be great”. Unfortunately that wish was not to be fulfilled as 14 days later, (having never stayed a night in the property) we took a direct hit from hurricane Ivan.

As a Florida native, hurricanes were nothing to be feared and I remember countless “hurricane parties” as a young boy that were really great fun. However hurricane Ivan was a storm of historic proportions and that coupled with our direct Gulf front location created unimaginable destruction.

The repairs took a full 27 months. During the repair period with the building already in a damaged condition, two additional hurricanes hit Navarre adding to the destruction.

When I came to survey the damage, there was no access to the island as the bridge was unpassable. A FEMA ferry took owners to their properties. If you can image, the elevator where you enter at the parking lot was accessible only by use of a ladder as the hurricane had washed approximately 12 feet of “earth” into the sound…(including all water mains, sewers and other under ground infrastructure. The front foundation pilings of the building were in the Gulf. The beach was gone.

However we rebuilt better than before and never looked back, but regrettably know it will certainly happen again.

What makes this condo unique

Navarre Beach is actually located on Santa Rosa Island a 40 mile barrier island bordered by Santa Rosa Sound and the ICW on one side and the Gulf on the other.

The island stretches from Okaloosa County near Destin to the east and Ft Pickens to the West. Much of the island is Department of Defense (DOD) lands and is not accessible to the public.

Navarre Beach is accessible by one of two bridges, the Navarre Bridge to the east and the Pensacola Beach Bridge to the west. There is a toll of $1.00 at the Pensacola Beach Bridge for access from the mainland. However there are no tolls to exit the island.

The geography of the island is in large part responsible for its “quiet” nature of Navarre Beach. Bordered by the DOD to the east, and the Gulf National Seashore to the west, Navarre Beach is a unique oasis, constrained in size by its government neighbors.

Much of the 1978 film Jaws 2 was filmed at Navarre Beach. Hotel scenes in the movie were filmed at the Navarre Beach Holiday Inn, a complex subsequently destroyed by Hurricane Ivan.

Cozy and colorful with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

This unit is perfect for 3-4 people. It is on the smaller side of units but for my 2 daughters (ages 16 and 8) and I, this was perfect. We did not spend a lot of time indoors so did not need lots of room. The space is very bright and colorful, perfect for a beach getaway. Jill and Scott went above and beyond, leaving cookies and cupcakes for the kids; and wine and cheese for me when we arrived. They also had fresh flowers on the table. These extra little touches were a pleasant surprise. The unit is on the corner so you get a spectacular view of the beach.

Perfect white sand beach!

  • 5 of 5

The condo fulfilled all our expectations! Basically on the beach so the views from the 7th floor balcony were spectacular!

Compact unit but attached bathrooms for each bedroom was exactly what we wanted. The kitchen was fully equipped...AND we made use of the washer and dryer in the unit several times during our week's stay. Such cute decor throughout...bright and vibrant and very "beachy"!

Scott & Jill had thought of everything! They provided big beach towels, 4 beach chairs with one umbrella, a cooler, several beach hats, a small table and chairs on the balcony for relaxing with a book and a drink. Scott emailed several times through the week to make sure we had everything we needed. When we arrived there were only 3 chairs on the balcony, but as soon as we mentioned that he brought a couple more over. We were welcomed with a lovely block of cheese, a bottle of wine and cupcakes waiting for us. One of the couples was celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on this trip. Scott and Jill were so thoughtful...they brought over an anniversary cake mid-week. We couldn't have asked for better hosts! We would definitely stay there again.

Had a great week! The condo is wonderful and the views, spectacular!! I have never seen such pristine beaches: beautiful sand, rolling waves, saw a bunch of dolphins frolicking in the water out of the condo window and had the best vacation in a long time!!

Tiny Terrific Gem

  • 5 of 5

What we loved about this condo: Small complex with ample parking. The location is on the 7th floor, West corner unit directly Gulf, which allows fantastic panoramic views of both the Gulf and Bay. The decor is compact, cheerful, cozy and very comfortable. Sipping coffee on a comfortable balcony is super important to me on my beach vacation, so I enjoyed the Keurig single serve because I could bring my my own brew to enjoy every morning. The owners (Scott and Jill) called to check on us daily and are absoultely lovely hosts! They left us several delightful treats to welcome us: Cupcakes, a bottle of red wine, cheese & crackers and even a beautiful bouquet of flowers! The pictures are very accurate and what you see is what you get, although I missed the inviting red Adirondack chairs that were not on the balcony as the pictures advertise. I was really looking forward to hanging out there but the entire unit makes up for the small missing detail and the brown sling chairs were fine. We will surely return to this condo again and again!
