Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: 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.

Why Shalimar, FL, USA:
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.
