Scott Christopher purchased this condo in 2004

Why Scott Christopher chose Florida

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.

We felt right at home in this condo. Jill called to check on us and added special touches that make the stay that much more enjoyable. We will be back for sure!! If you can't decide between 2 condo's this is the one for sure.

Beautifully decorated home right on the beach! Perfect for a vacation with the grandchildren!

  • 5 of 5

Great beachside home with a well equipped kitchen. The views from the balcony are amazing. The home owners are the best we've ever worked with; communication was always quick and the extra touches were nice. We loved the cupcakes and the fresh flowers on the table. Our arrival was during a tropical storm, and they called several times to check on us and make sure everything was okay. While it rained, there was plenty of space inside and on the balcony for our three tween grandchildren. They have already decided that this should be our vacation spot again next year.

Beautiful place and view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo, although somewhat cramped for storage, was beautiful and very clean. The owners seemed to do everything they could to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The extra touches of fresh flowers and cupcakes made for a great start to our arrival. He kept in contact with us and made sure we knew he was available if needed.

Being a corner unit, provided the best view in the building, with the gulf in front and the sunset at the corner. All in all a very lovely place. I would certainly chose this place again.
