Gulf Properties has been a trusted name in vacation rentals on Navarre Beach since 1979. We want you to have a great vacaion experience, weather you choose us or another agent. This past summer, we met several unfortunate victims of rental scams. These people had reserved and paid for their rentals online; then arrived in Navarre only to find that the units did not exist, and there were no other beach rentals available.

Be wary of VRBO's Vacation Rental By Owner or companies that do not maintain a physical presence in Navarre. Also, be wary of anyone who will not accept a credit card payment to reserve your unit; credit cards offer you protection from fraud and almost all legitimate rental agents accept them!

Rent Sporting Equipment

There are several businesses on the beach where you can rent bikes, scooters, surf boards, jet ski's, kayaks, etc. So don't worry if you don't own these or don't want to bring them with you.

Visit in the Off Season

The peak tourism season for Navarre Beach is summer, especially the months of June & July. Our beaches are beautiful all year. Rent in the off season, and you will save money and enjoy uncrowded beaches. We also offer many "Snowbird" rentals for those of you who like to migrate to a warmer climate for the winer.

Plan Activities in Advance

Many vacationers will be happy to stick to the beach for their whole trip, but you may also want to plan a deep sea fishing trip, visit the zoo, or play a round of golf. Check out the Activies & Attractions page for ideas.

Plan a Weekend Getaway

Navarre is a convenient destination for residents of the Florida Panhandle, Alabama, Missisipi, Louisianna, and Georgia. Drive out here for a great weekend getaway!

Visit for a Week or More

For the best prices, book a longer stay. You can often book 7 days for almost the same rate as 5.
