About Jonnie Blaylock

I first visited the Emerald Coast as a Second Lieutenant in the Army in 1974 and fell in love with the area. In 1987 I got the chance to move here and work at Eglin AFB as an electronics engineer.

Jonnie Blaylock purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Jonnie Blaylock chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

When we decided to get into the vacation rental business, we decided that we wanted to concentrate on making vacationing more affordable to families visiting the Emerald Coast. Our properties are different than the typical beach front condo, in that we are located in quiet neighborhoods, away from the hustle and bustle of the typical tourist crowd. They are typically within 8 miles of the beach, and usually at least $1000 less expensive per week.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have to say the place looked so much nicer than the pictures. We were very impressed at how spacious and clean the house was. We definitely loved it alot and would stay there again. Jonnie was helpful and always a phone call away. Thanks Jonnie for a great place

Amazing

  • of 5
Mr. Jonnie and his wife were very people. This stay was amazing all around. The house was beautiful and very clean. Any issue we had, Mr. Jonnie fixed it in a timely manner. I would book this house again for any future beach trip. The first day we drove to Okaloosa Island, but the beach wasn't as clean as we expected. The next day we made the drive to Destin and it was SO worth it. The Destin beach was beautiful and quiet. We all had a great time on our vacation. My one complaint was that it did not last long enough.

Loved our stay here

  • 4 of 5
We stayed for four nights. There were six of us, plus my brother who lives in Ft Walton and my sister drove over from south Mississippi, both visited. We had a great time. The home was great, nicely decorated, nice comfortable furniture, plenty of room for all of us, clean, well stocked, nice pool even though we didn't use it. It had everything we needed. It was located close to my brother and it only took a few minutes to get to anything we wanted to do. Our only complaint was that Mr Blaylock didn't call me to give me the address or code to get in and didn't answer my emails. I did not have a phone number to reach him. We had to make phone calls to VRBO once we got to Ft Walton to get a number so we could get in touch with him so we were very late checking in and it was a very stressful situation for us. However, Mr Blaylock did make it right for us and everything was great after that. It will in no way effect our willingness to use VRBO or possibly even stay at this same home in the future. We had a great time at a great place.

Perfect for family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a great week. Everything that we wanted to do was within just a few minutes drive. The accommodations were great. The neighborhood was quiet and quite secure. The house was well "equipped" and we took advantage of eating in as much as possible. We'll definitely look to coming again!

We had a lovely time here.

  • 4 of 5
This home was plenty spacious for our large family. Johnny was quick to change out a grill that wasn't working. Plenty of things to do close by. We did quite a bit of cooking and the kitchen was well stocked. The pool is open seasonally, not year round...not that it mattered much due to the weather. We were very comfortable there.
