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!!!

Awesome and amazing.

We loved your home. This home provided everything we needed. We had 8 family members to stay in this home and we had enough space and privacy for everyone. Truly loved everyone had their own private bath room. The walk to the beach was short and nice. Such a great location and layout of the home. The decor was beautiful and relaxing. Would definitely stay again!!

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.
