Great overall experience,recommend better toilet paper and fabric softener sheets for the dryerLance L.
This unit was new to the owners, but the owners are not new to the business. We decided last minute to take a vacation during one of the busiest weekends. There were very few options left and this unit was "new" and had no reviews. We took the chance and contacted the owners. They responded very quickly and were also very kind. During our planning and stay, I contacted them several times with questions (including 2 days before checking out to see if the guests after us had cancelled so we could stay longer) and they always responded quickly.
About the building and unit: It is a low rise complex, which we prefer and was as described. The complex is a mix of rentals and full time residents and we found them all to be friendly. This unit was on the second floor and the balcony was situated right between the tennis courts and the pool, which is perfect to watch your children. I could throw down a pair of goggles when the children forgot to take them and drop a water bottle to them if they walked out of the tennis court or pool fence. You are not on the beach (gulf view), but from one of the bedroom windows, you can see the walk to the beach and be able to see if there are warning flags or if it's all green (good to go). Once you close the door to your unit you are in the sand in less than 3 minutes. This makes it pretty convenient if you forgot something or have to use the restroom.
The unit was nicely stocked, plenty of utensils, plates, pans, blender, toaster, etc. I'm not saying they have everything that you may have in your home, but we needed for nothing. The only recommendation I have is bring tennis rackets. Other units stocked tennis rackets, but this one did not (at least that we could find). The unit was clean and well kept. Upon arrival we always strip bedding and look around furniture for signs of bed bugs, and we found no signs or had any bites during the night.
The owners have other units too that are nicer, but for a bargain unit or a last minute vacation, this really was a decent place to stay and we would most certainly not hesitate to stay again or recommnend it to friends and family.
Oh, by the way if you are new to the area, try a little restaurant on 98 called Sam Huston's-great food. And treat yourself and your children to a little ice-cream shop called The Twist- so many options including (real ice cream) soft serve. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.Michael N.
Condo location is great on Navarre Beach. Within walking distance to the beautiful white sand beach and restaurant on the island. The patio view of the pool is also wonderful. Accommodations within the condo are perfect. Washer/dryer are nice for a week long stay. My family absolutely loves this area and Beachview. We are already planning next years trip to this same condo.Devon M.
