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

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.

Only 2 complaints. A few dead bugs on floor, and the PS3 game was missing cords. We did contact owner and we offered to pick up the cords, which we did and he was willing to reimburse us the cost how ever they still did not fix the problem.
We look forward to using this unit again in the warmer months.
Owner's Response: I assumend that the Ps3 was fixed with the cables that they procured since they did not get back to me to let me know that is stll was not working. PS3 broken replaced with a Wii after they had left.

This home was very clean! Everything you might need for your week was here: mixer, blender, pots and pans, soap, lots of soft towels, extra blankets and pillows. There was even a flashlight! The beds had memory foam on them so they felt great! Each evening we used the propane grill and it worked great for us. there were even grilling tools here. I used the oven to bake cookies: they even had Wilton cookie sheets to use. The movies on the tv saved the day for us as it rained a couple of the days we were there. The microwave is powerful so watch your time when you use it. The pool was wonderful. Hardly anyone used the pool when we were there so it was like our private pool! The tile floors downstairs were nice because when you came in sandy from the beach the carpet area upstairs stayed clean. I wish the showers had more pressure because my hair it thick and rinsing it out took longer than normal but we never ran out of hot water at anytime during the week. The washer and dryer were new and worked perfect!! We have stayed at several vacation places and this one did not disappoint us. We will be back!!
