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 Florida

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

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The rental was in a quiet area and we had no issues. The owner was very attentive and when we reported a problem with the dishwasher sorted it out in no time even in this case replacing the unit. I would recommend this place. Its close enough to Destin without the crazy hotel rates. It is well furnished so will save you money on all the little things you would spend on like laundry or proper coffee. Overall a bargain.

The property was NICE! Anything extra that we may have needed was readily available!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here! The complex was quiet and we had no problems! We were moments away from EVERYTHING!!! The only downside of the trip was that the WI-FI was a tad slow, but who cares we were on VACATION and vacation it was!!! If I had to do all over again, make no mistake about it, this is a residence that I would love stay AGAIN!!! Mr. Blaylock and his wife were AMAZING to work with!!! 👍👍👍!!!❤
