“Another Great vacation at Summerwind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2009

We stayed at Summerwind from Sept 4 through Sept 7. Our unit (1202W) was in excellent condition and our view of the beach and gulf were amazing. We have stayed at the Summerwind Complex many times and have never been disappointed.

Condo 603W was wonderful! Had everything we could ask for. Clean, roomy and comfortable. View from the balcony was fabulous. Beach in front of the resort was very crowded. Umbrellas were placed very close to each other and you really felt packed in. Pools were also always crowded. Not that big a deal, but we did spend a lot of time away from the resort, on less crowded areas nearby (Gulf Islands Seashore was isolated and very relaxing!). Overall a wonderful family vacation week in an excellent facilty! Dale Peterson staff were also very friendly and helpful!

Before planing our trip, I read all the reviews on Trip Advisor. Most of which are very positive. Because of this, I decided to go with Summerwind. However, you never really know about a place until you actually get there. We stayed in a one bedroom unit.

Summerwind is decent. Certainly nothing to write home about, The location on the beach is great. The view of the Gulf is great. The unit itself leaves a lot to be desired. I'm sure each unit/condo is different, but ours was very average. There were walls that were dinged up, a light bulb in the living room that was burnt out, hair on the floor in the bathroom (gross), there was a hair in the microwave (nasty), the patio and the furniture on the patio was dirty. The place honestly to me, didn't look like it had been cleaned. Another thing, our unit's bedroom was located right next to the elevator, so we heard that at night every time it was used. The TV in the master bedroom didn't work right, It made a hissing noise.

All-in-all, if you're looking for just a "room", to throw your things in, this place is fine. Don't expect to be walking into a resort, because it's not that. With all this being said., I would actually stay here again. The location and view is great, plus the price was awesome! We paid in the $650 range for 6 nights. Seemed like a good deal to me. I'm chalking it up to, we got a bad unit. But yea, I would give this place another chance. Again, the price was right.

Navarre itelf is fine. The beach is great. If you're looking for more bars/restaurants, then stay about 15 miles away in Fort Walton. We drove there several times just to check-it-out. Very nice, with more of a selection of things to do, places to eat, etc. And the Fort Walton beaches are just as nice.

We visited Navarre for the first time last week. We stayed at Summerwind #703E and rented through Dale E. Patterson Realty. Everything about the condo was great. It was decorated nice, had a great view, a well stocked kitchen, and super clean. This was our first visit to Navarre and it could not have been better. The water and beach were beautiful all week.

The pool was great and the staff checked all week to make sure only guests with armbands were at the pool. The elevator's in the building were fast and clean.

I don't have any bad things to say about Navarre and Summerwind. I am only sad that my week there had to end. We will never go back to Orange Beach or Destin again!

Myself and my family stayed at Summerwind West the last week of June and had an amazing stay. The condo was absolutely beautiful. The view of the beach and gulf was amazing. All of the normal amenities were already available to us. We had 5 adults 2 teenagers and one 5 year old with us and everyone did a great job of picking up after each other. It was truly a perfect vacation...until we left.

The private owner we booked the place through called us the day after we left and left us a voicemail telling us that we left the entire place a disaster and that trash was left all over the unit. She then proceeded to tell us that we were "obviously classless people" and that she will never rent to us again. So we asked for proof because we were the second to last couple to leave that morning and when we left we made sure our master bedroom was cleaned up nicely so that nothing was left in the room. We arranged the furniture in the living room back to the way it was and picked up any random piece of trash. We made sure all dishes left were in the dishwasher and i took out the trash one last time. We checked the second bedroom to make sure nothing was left behind and it was clean as well.

The only room we didn't check was the third bedroom because they were still there when we left. So we received our request through email of the "proof" that the entire unit was destroyed and her only proof was a photo of the third bedrooms trashcan in the bathroom. And that was apparently enough for her to label us as disgusting, classless people. She said she was keeping our $100 deposit as well for this saying that her housekeepers had a full bag of trash they had to take out. Completely rude.

When booking with this place, be aware of the horrible private owners. Do stay at the condo if visiting Navarre as it is the most beautiful of any of the condo's in the area, but book with a rental company. I would recommend this place to anyone booking with an agency.

We stayed at Navarre Properties, Summerwing in SW1003E. This unit is on the 10th floor overlooking the beach(A+++). We had checked trip advisor before booking this property and the reviews were mixed. We decided to give it a try. The Condominium was a 1 bedroom with 2 bunk beds, which the kids loved. The property was very clean, the carpet was in really good condition considering the property is right on the beach. It was a very relaxing and kid friendly. We loved hearing the ocean waves crashing during the night. The kids and adults enjoyed the pool and beach. The staff was very pleasant. They even had an Easter egg hunt on the beach for the children. Also, the National Seashore is right down the road with its undisturbed beaches. The scenic road will take you all the way to Pensecola Beach. So for those who are unsure about this property, I highly recommend. We drove in from the state of Georgia and the drive was great. Not to long for young children. We really enjoyed the vacation and plan to return! The Weather was a little cool for the first week in April, 2009.
