About Jonnie Blaylock
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.
Jonnie Blaylock purchased this Townhome in 2012
Why Jonnie Blaylock chose Lake Lorraine
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.

Everything you need!
This home had everything you could need for an extended stay: plenty of towels and linens, well equipped kitchen, lots of living space, easy access to main thoroughfares, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and Mr. Blaylock was extremely accommodating anytime we had an issue. For example, the air conditioning for the unit went out one afternoon and Mr. Blaylock had a repair company out within an hour, faster than my landlord back home would have resolved it! Highly recommend this property, especially if you are in the area TDY to Hurlburt Field or Eglin AFB.
Perfect for our bowling team weekend. We will definitely be back!
Home away from home!
This was our second stay and I'm sure it won't be our last. More than enough space and amenities whether the kids were awake or asleep. Everything we needed was close at hand. We greatly appreciate all the efforts the owner has put into making this place a home away from home.
great accommodations for families
Very happy with our accommodations. the interior courtyard was great for kids , walking and jogging.Nice pool and refreshing to have it outside our door. Plenty of room for our group. Mr Blaylock is very nice to deal with if you have any problems. We had a very minor one.Would definitely stay there again!
Great place to stay!
Mr. Jonnie was a great person to rent from. Didn't have anyone there Day of check in so he let us come earlier. Very nice man and will definitely rent from him again if we ever go back to Shalimar. House 🏡 is nice and kids loved to have a pool in backyard. Well taken care of. Could be a little closer to beach 🌊 but enjoyed the no traffic and no noise. Thx Mr. Jonnie!
It was quiet. We had a great time!
