Great location, size, and value!
For those unfamiliar with Navarre, if you're looking to party and get rowdy, this is not the beach for you. Navarre is quiet and has no fancy hipster restaurants or bars and very few restaurants in general. If you want to eat at a "fine dining" establishment you will need to drive to Destin or Pensacola. That being said, there are two groceries (Winn Dixie and Publix) and a Wal-Mart within 10 minutes of Dawson House so you don't have to go on a major expedition to pick up supplies you left at home. The beaches are as nice as anything on 30-a, and if you stay at Dawson House, they will be considerably less crowded. Plus, if you want to charter a boat for deep sea fishing, it's a quicker drive to the Destin docks from Navarre than it is from anywhere on 30-A.
I've stayed at a lot of houses on the gulf and in Navarre particular. Some of them have been "nicer" but this is probably the best. When I say "nicer", I'm referring to the finishes and decor in the houses. Dawson house is not going to win any awards for interior design or appear on HGTV anytime soon, but for functionality it wins hands down. So if you like paying $10k for a week in Rosemary 1/2 mile from the beach because of the decorating, Dawson house might disappoint.
The entire middle section of the house is one large room that includes the kitchen, dining area, tv area, and sitting area.There are two bedrooms on either side of the great room, one side with a jack and jill bathroom between the two bedrooms and the other side has an en-suite bath in the master and common area full bath for the other bedroom.
We had six guys in our group so everyone getting their own bed was a must. The two rooms with twin beds handled this no problem and with the two sleeper sofas in the great room we could have added two more to our group. The kitchen has nice cookware (non-stick without the usual scratching) and cooking utensils including a big pot for a shrimp boil. The beach in front was not crowded at all. The outside shower is enclosed and private is attached to the steps so you don't get all sandy after you shower off. Unbeatable view from the porch in the back. Lots of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, and other goodies left by previous guests and owners have been well cared for. Plenty of parking for 3 cars. This would be a great house for two families, one family w/ grandparents, or a dad's (or mom's) weekend out. l'll definitely be coming back to Dawson House again
Amazing, Spacious Home for a Group Trip!
I stayed at the Dawson House for a small bachelorette trip recently and couldn't have asked for anything more! There was more than enough room for all of us and we loved sitting on the porch directly overlooking the beach. The owner was also incredibly helpful when I had questions about our stay. Would highly recommend if you're looking for a beach home in Navarre!
The property was outstanding. Geeat location and very clean.
We had a great time. As I stated above, the property was very clean, had a lot of items in the kitchen that were useful, and everything worked. The location is so nice, being nestled right on the beach. We would highly recommend staying here to anyone.
Very nice home for the family & fantastic beach!
Lots of added extras were stocked in the house that other homes don't have.
Thanks for the glowing review. The Dawson House was used as a private residence for many years and when we decided to open it for rental, everything was left as it was. That's why the kitchen has so many gadgets and cooking equipment. We're happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Great vacation! Perfect location!
The house was great! We loved the open floor plan and the view!
Thanks for the great review. Please visit the Dawson House again.
Great house for a large group.
Awesome views of gulf. Large backyard sand area for volleyball. House was very clean and well appointed.
