About Tracy Brooks Saucier

Our family has been in the real estate business for 30+ years and are proud of our friendly and efficient service to our guests and tenants. As we make our way towards retirement, it is our goal to continue to provide this service in the Destin area for many years to come! Please feel free to call and speak with me regarding your next vacation!

Tracy Brooks Saucier purchased this condo in 2012

Why Tracy Brooks Saucier chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We chose this property because of the many amenities that it has to offer on site. Not only is it family oriented, it can also serve as a romantic getaway for a couple needing some special time together. If you've had a long day, you can relax in your beautiful room, on your balcony or head down to the pool side bar for a refreshing beverage. If your still full of energy and want some exciting nightlife...head on down to Harbor Walk Village and enjoy yourself shopping, dining and dancing the night away! The resort has a great restaurant if you want to stay on property. Brick and Spoon serves from 7 AM - 3 PM. At 3 PM until closing the restaurant serves from the Chips menu. Both have great food! The Brunch is Awesome!

What makes this condo unique

Stunning Sunsets From Your Balcony, Everything right at your fingertips, walking distance to many fine restaurants, Exercise Facility, largest pool in Destin

GREAT Unit, VERY Nice owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of July 9, 2016 in this unit. The unit was perfect for us, we were very impressed with the view and furnishings. Pool was a huge hit with the kids! The owners, Tracy and Johnny were awesome!!! We had a few hiccups during our stay and they went above and beyond to take care of us. I would highly recommend this condo.

Great location and good views from the penthouse. Nice pool area.

  • 4 of 5

Penthouse has a really nice view. The condo location is great. Easy access to Henderson State Park. Plenty of options for eating out. Wal-Mart can be driven to without getting on the main highway. One downside is the WiFi is weak at the complex. Also, the cards for entry stopped working a few times. These are more the complex issues, rather than the unit itself. Would stay again in the future.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you encountered issues with the wifi. The Association of owners is buying out the developer and we should close by August of this year. So many things will improve in the months to come. The wifi and cable is in the process of being upgraded to COX Digital. With such a large complex, we have ran into some issues, but are working out these problems on a daily basis. Service before was analog and was far worse. Please be patient during these upgrades. All TV's in our units have already been upgraded to brand new HD flat screen TV's. The Palms of Destin is only going to get Better!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for anything else.

Our family spent a week in the condo, and it turned out be a very nice, and comfortable place to stay.

Plenty of room.

The views are nice too.

We will definitely be back in the future.

Perfect vacation for us!

  • 5 of 5

We found this rental on VRBO and thought that it was somehow too good to be true.. Somewhere there would be a catch... And the truth is there's not. This condo is on the top floor with amazing views of destin and the beach. The resort has a shuttle that takes you into town or to the beach for free and runs every hour which is awesome. Everything we needed to know about destin, the resort and the room was sent out via email and printed in the room which made it so much easier when looking for things to do. When we come back to destin I will be returning to this condo! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Thank you!
