About Tracy Battaglini

Our family traveled around the state and just fell in love with the Emerald Coast. We were blessed to find such good people to help us in building our 'dream home.' We hope you enjoy it as much as we do when we visit.

Tracy Battaglini purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Tracy Battaglini chose South Walton

The white, baby powder fine beaches against the emerald green Gulf just takes our breath away. It is truly God's paradise on Earth.

What makes this cottage unique

One of our family's favorite this gs to do while vacationing at 'Southern Shell is to stroll down to the beach to watch the su set and then to hunt for crabs with our flashlights. The kids just get the biggest kick out of it and it is great quality family time for free!!!

This trip was our 3rd time staying in this house. We absolutely love the space, cleanliness, and the owner is always pleasant. It's very close to the beach which is a huge plus. We will be back again next year. Thank you!!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as described. Tracy was very helpful and quick to respond to all my questions. Location is great, very close to beach, but no ocean view. We would drive to the beach in the morning and set up our chairs and umbrella and walk back and forth throughout the day. About a 7 minute walk. We love Santa Rosa beach area, our favorite restaurant is Bayou Bills. We have already recommended the location to friends

Beautiful Home! Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the end of July and had a wonderful time. The home is exactly as stated, clean and comfortable. Easy access to the beach, great area. We make Florida a yearly vacation, we would definitely rent again. Tracy was wonderful and extremely helpful. Restaurants and seafood market, shops and beach within walking distance. Great home for the location and price, won't find a better deal in this area.

Beautiful Home, Beach, Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family (8 people) had such a wonderful time during our stay. The house was very clean and decorated tastefully. The rooms were nice and had plenty of storage. There were tons of beach toys and chairs to use and the extra fridge in the garage was a big asset. Tracy was a pleasure to rent from and kept us in the loop with all things relevent. This was by far one of the best vacations our family has been on! The beach was well within walking distance, even for our five year old. The restaurants and shops were so much fun! I have honestly not seen such a beautiful beach area since we went to Mexico. The sand was soft and white; the beach was crystal clear and the area was not crowded at all. I think we may have found our yearly vacation spot! So much more friendly than PCB. Destin is a 10-15 min drive depending on traffic. But the beach here is so much more enjoyable! The locals are amazing! Go see April at the Growlers beer place about 0.5 miles from the house. Thanks Tracy for allowing us to rent your beautiful home!
