About Mark Trafton

I was born and raised in Tallahassee, FL, graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy, served as an officer/pilot in the USAF for 9 years and then as a pilot with United Airlines for 5 years. I left the industry after 9/11 so I could spend more time with my wife and 3 sons. I'm the Broker/Owner of Armor Realty in Tallahassee and am licensed in both Florida and Georgia. I own this property with a friend of mine in Tallahassee. Although I'm a broker, this property is personally owned by my friend and I and is separate and independent from my real estate company.

Mark Trafton purchased this condo in 2004

Why Mark Trafton chose Miramar Beach

Our condo is AWESOME! It's quaint and comfortable. The beach is absolutely beautiful with its snow-white sand and clear blue water! Beach access is incredibly easy and quick, unlike many properties along the Emerald Coast and 30A. The view from our balcony is GREAT, especially considering the rates we offer. Since there are no large high rise complexes nearby, the beach is much less crowded than other areas. You can walk to Pompano Joe's, Capt Dave's, Kenny D's for drinks and dinner/lunch! The Big Kahuna's water park, Bass Pro Shops, Outlet Stores, Marinas, Boat Rentals, Fishing Guides, Jet Skiing, Parasailing, Golfing, Bike Rentals, tons of other great restaurants, etc....are all close by--just a few minutes' drive.

What makes this condo unique

Gulf view, beach view, incredibly convenient and quick to beach. You'll be on the beach within 5 minutes of walking out our unit's door. Since there are no large complexes nearby, the beach is much less dense and crowded, meaning your beach chairs and umbrellas will be very close to the water, not 3 to 10 chairs deep like other locations. Also, since we are on the top floor (3rd), our unit is quieter than those on first and second floor since you will not hear the "pitter patter" of feet and furniture moving around above you.

Additionally, since we are on the top floor and located near the end of the building closest to the beach, the view from our balcony is one of the best in the whole complex.

Loved the Condo

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I didn't give this a five star is because there is no elevator. We really enjoyed our stay here. The condo was very nice and very clean and right across the street from the beach which is beautiful white sand and very clean. (To rent two beach chairs with umbrella is $30 a day, so a trip to dollar general could save you a bunch). The condo must be very well insulated because we did not hear our neighbors one time. Not having an elevator wasn't really a big problem except the first day when we had to carry up our luggage. I would not recommend this condo to elderly couples due the fact that there are no elevators. There is no hair dryer in the condo, so be sure to pack one. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely come back.

Great bargain

  • 5 of 5

Best price I found in town, save hundreds compared to other. Fit us and 3 teenaged kids comfortably, except the pull out was a little uncomfortable. Had everything we needed, only draw back is there no washer and dryer in the room, so we had to pay 1.75 per wash/dry a few steps away(takes credit card). The day we arrived home our deposit check was already there.
