Overview

Florida Panhandle Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Gulf Front Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

There's nothing so beautiful as the sound of the surf, the view of the turquoise blue green water and pristine white sand beaches. Spend the day just watching the water change colors, watching the surf, the seagulls, the herons and the pelicans splash in the water. Most spring and summer days you'll also see dolphins swimming by. In April, there's the cobia tournament so you see a lot of boats out in the gulf. In late August you may see sea turtles hatching. And in the fall, look for the cownose rays jumping across the water.

Whether you enjoy sitting on the beach or being inside, out of the sun, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico from this spacious gulf front townhouse! Huge great room with relaxing beach decore and a 20'x15' deck/balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and white sandy beach.

Great room features recessed lights, 18' tile floors, comfortable goose down filled couch and double chairs with ottomans. Fully equipped Kitchen with plenty of dishes, blender, toaster, coffee pot.

Cable TV, DVD, & Wireless internet.

Floor Plan Description:

2nd floor: The Gulf view great room, large 20x15 balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Guest bedroom with one queen bed and one twin bed and bath. Washer/dryer Closet

3rd Floor: Gulf front Master Bedroom with King bed, TV and private master bath with tiled shower. Private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Also an additional guest bedroom with two queen beds, TV, and private bath.

Ground floor is 10’ x 30’parking, room for 3 cars back to back, the foyer, and a separate studio apartment that is rented separately. The garage is used to store your beach toys and/or bikes.

Although the unit is pet friendly, dogs are not allowed on the beach along the Gulf of Mexico. There is a dog park on the Gulf of Mexico about 10 miles down the beach and you can walk them along the multi-use path or along Santa Rosa Sound .

Navarre beach activities include:

Miles of unspoiled white sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico and the intercoastal waterway for shelling, swimming, kayaking, sailing, fishing, waterskiing, parasailing, jet skiing, snorkeling, surfing, windsurfing, and wildlife viewing.

Multi-use path runs the length of the Island for biking, walking, or jogging. You can rent bikes, kayaks, and surf boards by the week or day at very reasonable rates.

Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary artificial reefs have been placed in Santa Rosa Sound and one to be built in the Gulf of Mexico for Snorkeling.

The longest fishing pier on the Gulf of Mexico is less than 2 miles east of 'Island Time'. It's great for fishing or watching people pull in some big ones. They also have a Bar & Grill with live music.

Love the sunsets at Juana's Pogoda's. It's also entertaining in the summer to watch the volleyball tournaments there and usually they have live bands on the weekends.

Free concerts are held in the park at the foot of the Navarre Beach Bridge on Thursday nights 6 PM- 8PM in the summer, and Pensacola Beach hosts free concerts on the gulf on Tuesday nights. It's a beautiful 20 minute drive through the National Seashore to shop, eat, and see other places on Pensacola Beach as well.

Another must see while you're here is the Naval Museum in Pensacola, Home of the Blue Angels.

About Terri

The first time I saw the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico was in 1981. It was truly the most beautiful scenery I'd had ever seen. It had been my dream to have a place of my own on the Gulf. Now, I have two. I've lived on Navarre Beach since 1991. I bought 'Island Time' in 2000. I had 4 wonderful and amazing years living there and saw dolphins jump up out of the water, watched sea turtle nests hatch and assisted them to the gulf, picked up star fish one morning, and the birds... pelicans, seagulls, herons, sandpipers are abundant & beautiful. In 2007, I decided to offer it as a vacation rental. I enjoy meeting people from different places and hope they enjoy life on the Gulf of Mexico from ' Island Time' as much as I have.

Terri purchased this townhome in 2000

What makes this townhome unique

'Island Time' is a two mile walk or bike ride to the Longest Fishing Pier on the Gulf or Juana's Pagoda & Sailor's Grill. If you have bikes, you can bring them & keep them in the garage.

  • 5 of 5

Terri was great, she quickly fixed the air conditioning. she also had the dishwasher fixed quickly. The Beach House was great.

We would love to stay there again. Navarre Beach was not crowded (even thought it was the week of the Fourth of July. very light traffic. Lots of shells on the beach and the beach had lots of wildlife.

Clean and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the townhome. It was clean, comfortable and spacious. The Unit is in a great location with fantastic views and easy access to the beach. I will definitely keep this property in mind for our next vacation. The owner was easy to contact and answered all of my questions. And we could easily fit 3 vehicles in the driveway. The property could probably use a few cosmetic updates, but was clean which is most important to me. I would definitely recommend to my friends and relatives.

Great stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Island Time!! We loved the location right on the beach only a short walk to paradise. We also loved that this home was pet friendly so we could bring our Gracie and my sisters dog Mia. Terri was always very helpful and easy to contact. Loved the extra beach toys etc in the garage that was very nice. Only negative was the washing machine was down but we was able to use the one in the garage so only a small inconvenience and it really wasn't anything Terri could of helped those things happen. Maybe a few more cups (for larger groups) although we just bought some solo cups and it was great. We had a wonderful stay and did not want to leave. Navarre is beautiful, you must stop by Tommy's sno balls that was a favorite of ours. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home for a week.

A nice Condo and very spacious.

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay @ Navarre Beach in our Condo.. Would like to have been able to have our dog with us for walks on the beach, but we understand that the ones who don't pick up and keep track of theirs will ruin it for others..

Nice vacation spot.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room. Nice kitchen, but pans need to be replaced. Spent so much time soaking pots and pans to get them clean after use. Close to beach. Allowed dogs which was perfect for us. Would return...

Best Alternative

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed in Destin the last several years but because of traffic and crowds at ALL restaurants we decided to go to Navarre Beach instead. It was a great decision, the beach was family friendly, the location of condo was perfect and everyone respected everyone else's place and property. We will certainly return next year.

Notes:
The multi-use path on Navarre Beach is my favorite amenity. Sometimes I walk, sometimes I ride my bike and the scenery is awesome. Walking out on the Longest Fishing Pier on the Gulf here on Navarre Beach and watching the fishermen is another favorite thing to do. They also have a Bar & Grill with live music. I also Love the sunsets at Juana's Pogoda's. It's also entertaining in the summer to watch the volleyball tournaments there and usually they have live bands on the weekends. The Navarre Chamber hosts free concerts at the foot of the bridge on Thursday nights in the summer, & Pensacola Beach hosts free concerts on the Gulf on Tuesday nights. It's a beautiful 20 minute drive through the National Seashore to shop, eat, and see other places on Pensacola Beach as well. Another must see while you're here is the Naval Museum in Pensacola, Home of the Blue Angels. Hope to see you soon!
