Our Beach Spot is a cozy yet spacious 2 bedroom/2.5 bath beach retreat. It is a lovely unit with a cottage feel that will accommodate up to six people comfortably. Located on 'Florida's best kept secret' Navarre Beach, it's many features include fenced patio, heated pool, assigned parking, all new furniture, tile, and carpet.
The living room sofa and love seat with two additional club chairs can seat a large group comfortably. The dining area/kitchen is combined with the living space so you can join your guest or family while watching T.V. and preparing a meal. The convenience of a half bath and laundry closet located on the living level improves function and flow. And speaking of laundry, no need to drag along an iron or board, it's all there.
All bedrooms are upstairs for additional privacy. The master bedroom is large enough to provide a wee difficult sleeper a place to 'bunk-in' with mom and dad in their queen size bed or pitch a crib/tent to watch movies or play games with the entire family. The master bedroom is tastefully decorated with matching full size dresser, bedside tables, and a walk-in closet large enough to accommodate clothes for a week get away or a three month 'snowbird' escape.
The guest bedroom is as comfortable as the master. Older children and family members enjoy the choice of two double beds over traditional twin beds. Both bedrooms have their own separate baths, one with shower and one with shower/tub. The guest room has it's own T.V. armoire/dresser for storage and closet for hanging clothes.
By far one of the best features is the enclosed patio. Wet swim suits (hooks provided), sandy flip flops, beach bags and chairs, can all be left safely inside the gated patio while you lunch, nap, or take a beach break. Showers for beach de-sanding are located on the 'dunes cross-over walk', an additional front porch shower awaits you if a pool detour attracts you. The beach is accessable from the front of the unit as well as thru the patio gate. Alfresco dinning; romantic evenings or family barbecues, lunch or dinner, makes it feel much more like a holiday.
Restaurants, public beach, fishing bridge, and beach rentals are all within walking distance. Publix grocery and other shopping areas are close on the mainland. Destin (Silver Sands) shopping mall is 20-30 minutes away. P'cola dinning, night life, and of course those unbelievable 'Blue Angles' are 20-30 minutes in the other direction.
I am a RN. I have worked for 30+ years in a cardiovascular surgery ICU, at a large Atlanta Ga. hospital. I love beach life as well as the mountains of north Georgia.
I fell in love with Navarre because of the white sugar sand of it's beaches. I've visited beaches from Bali to Rio, and none can compare.
I've stayed in love with Navarre because of its convenience. Mornings you can walk to Sailors Grille/ Bakery for a coffee and homemade 'sticky bun'.
Next, shuffle over to the public beach for bicycle, kayak, surfboard,or lounge chair rental and superb people watching.
On your way back to your private beach spot, drop by the pier to view the catch of the day. Later in the evening you can walk to dinner under the stars. This island is the ultimate place to unwind!
But if it is action you want, or if you have children to entertain, visit the zoo in Gulf Breeze. Most 'tweens' enjoy the public beach or night volleyball at Jauana's. Outlet shopping at Destin's Silver Sands Mall is a legendary past time.
For a day off the island, P'cola has a rich military history with museums and a variety of restaurants to enjoy! Come on down and see for yourself! There is something for everyone. And as always....the beach!
