Committed to keeping your family safe

We here at Navarre Properties understand that this has been an uncertain time for so many of us due to COVID-19. As Navarre Beach and our rentals re-open to visitors, we are excited and ready to welcome you and your family to our sunny shores.

Rest assured; we take the health of our visitors seriously. And we understand that many of us need to get some time away for a much-needed breather. Our accommodations are ready to accept visitors and are being held to a higher standard than ever before. And we had a pretty high standard to begin with.

Our beaches are open to the public and fall under social distancing guidance. With this much white sand shoreline it’s easy to keep six feet apart.

In our rental units and beachfront homes, we are following strict cleaning protocols throughout each rental property based on the CDC’s latest guidance as well as the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations best practices.

We use commercial grade cleaners for all surfaces, especially focusing on high touch points, and we utilize commercial laundry facilities to clean all linens between each guest.

For added ease and comfort, we are offering electronic check-in and check-out for all rentals. We have instituted electronic signature for our rental agreement.  This will help with social distancing for both you and our staff by alleviating the need for a front desk visit.

We are committed to making sure your vacation is safe and enjoyable.

Let us put your mind at ease. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 850-936-1312. Find more information at NavarreListings.com/coronavirus-update.htm

National seashore and historic fort re-open to the public

Here on Navarre Beach we are blessed to neighbor one of the most iconic national parks in the U.S.

The Gulf Islands National Seashore offers an uninterrupted stretch of Florida beach in its undisturbed natural state, with huge white dunes and some of the world’s most beautiful sunsets.

The seashore has re-opened most of it’s public areas, and this May the historic Fort Pickens re-opened to visitors. This massive brick fortification has stood on the tip of Santa Rosa Island since the 1830s protecting the mouth of Pensacola Bay.

Just a short drive from Navarre Beach, this location offers a rich peak into nearly two centuries of history, bathed in sunshine and the smell of salt water from the shoreline.

 The Pensacola Bay Cruises are starting up as well with a modified schedule. Visit the cruise web site (www.cruisepb.com) for more information. Starting May 23, the tram service at Fort Pickens will start back up and passengers on the Pensacola Bay Cruises will be dropped off and picked up at Fort Pickens.

For now, Fort Barrancas, the Fort Pickens campground, discovery center and bookstore will remain closed as well as the headquarters and indoor exhibits at the Naval Live Oaks Area. We hope to see these areas re-opening soon as safe practice will allow.

More information on the fort and national seashore can be found at nps.gov/guis.

Navarre Beach a top scenic drive in 2020

Southern Living has announced what us locals already know: Navarre Beach is beautiful.

The magazine has named State Road 399 in Navarre Beach to the top 10 list of “The South’s Best Scenic Drives 2020.” Winding through our beach peninsula, this road takes your through the unspoiled beauty of Gulf Islands National Seashore. 

Southern Living says:

“Start at Navarre Beach and head west toward Pensacola right around sunset. It’s an unforgettable drive, with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Santa Rosa Sound on the other, unspoiled white sand and blue water all around, the whole scene softened by a coastal sky painted in pinks and corals.”

The description is wonderful, but words don’t do it justice.

For a perfect day, leave out from your beachfront condo in the morning with a picnic lunch and a few fun items for a day on the shore. Start driving west along Gulf Boulevard and the road will transition into the national seashore.

Enjoy the ride and be sure to slow down for our nesting shore birds. If you are lucky, you may spot snowy plover chicks during the warmer months, camouflaged among the sand.

Roll down your windows. This is mandatory. The smell of saltwater and sun is wonderful. Eventually you will come upon some wooden pavilions to the right with a parking area.

Park the car and use the beach walkover to go have some fun on the shore in one of the most ecologically unspoiled areas left on the gulf coast. Be sure to wear sunscreen and pay attention to posted flag conditions.

Then enjoy your picnic lunch and some family memories that will last a lifetime.

As sundown approaches, load back up in the car for a spectacular view on your way home. Sunsets here are truly one of a kind.

Once back on the main drag, enjoy a delicious dinner at one of our local restaurants or cook a family meal in the kitchen of your comfortable condo.
