About Tracy Peters

Owned and Managed by Loren & Tracy Peters.

Tracy grew up just outside of Memphis TN, in the small town of Arlington. Loren grew up in Jupiter, FL. They were both working in IT and met when Loren changed jobs and moved to Memphis - it was love at first sight! Years later, two kids, job changes, and a relocation to Roswell, GA, Loren still works in IT in the S.A.S. area; and Tracy owns her own Recruiting business specializing in IT.

Having vacationed as a young adult in the Florida panhandle, she finally convinced Loren to take a vacation on that side of the state and he too fell in love with the white sandy beaches!! Within 1 month of that family vacation the two are now proud owners of the little condo we have affectionately named 'Emerald Escape'. We hope you will enjoy your stay, and escape to paradise with our little piece of the beach!

Tracy Peters purchased this condo in 2014

Why Tracy Peters chose Fort Walton Beach

This particular condo is not only beautiful inside, but the views are spectacular and one of only a very few available in this condominium. Our building has just two units per floor that are truly beachfront/oceanfront. There re only 7 floors to our condo, the first two floors have blocked views from the sand dunes, making this condo one of only 10 with direct ocean views!! Prime location - directly over the pool so you can watch the 'tweens swim while sipping an iced tea (or icy cold beverage, we don't judge!) right from your private balcony above!

What makes this condo unique

We knew this was 'The' Condo for us from the Front Door!! You can see straight through to those Emerald Waters and soft rolling waves. Inside the condo we've tried to keep it very comfortable and very casual. With our 'shabby chic nautical beach' theme, you can kick off your shoes - prop up your feet and enjoy the views without worry! There are several restaurants on the Island, and many more within 10 minutes to either Fort Walton or Destin. There are also two Tom Thumb groceries on the Island or a Publix Supermarket just across the bridge into Ft. Walton if you choose to stock up and cook at home. On the island there is also a Waffle House for a quick breakfast, a liquor store, several gift shops and also a marina with jet ski rentals available.

Perfect trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights and couldn’t be happier with the condo. Tracie was very nice and easy to reach to make sure we were happy with the visit. The condo is excellently decorated with beach theme and was super clean! I am from here and we come back at least every 6 months and this unit takes the cake. The view is perfect and the best hight to hear the peaceful movement of the ocean waves. The kitchen was well equipt and we did not need anything that wasn’t in the condo. Even beach chairs in the closet for the off season goers😊?. Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed

Very nice unit

  • 4 of 5

Nicely furnished and of course a great view, well equipped. The only reason I don't give it a 5 is due to the furnace not working. Bad timing the temp got down to a feels like of 13 degrees and we had 2 space heaters. Water pressure is quite weak. The price was right and the owner is very nice. I would not hesitate to rent this unit again. The grounds are very nice. Great pool and patio. Parking is real tight but you get one reserved space.

Roomy, bright and clean with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas break for 3 nights. Everything was as described. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, coffee makers, and misc. items. There are plenty of seats for dining at both the table and breakfast bar. The livingroom was comfortable and had a large screen tv and cable channels.

We enjoyed having a king-sized bed and the kids liked having their own doubles.

Our hostess was responsive to all messages. We will definitely consider this condo on our next visit.
