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 Florida Main North West

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

Love love it...The view of the ocean was perfect. Great place for family. Everything is within miles away. So easy to get where you need to go from grocery stores to restaurants to places to do with the kids.

Can't find a better location! Loved the view! What a great spot!

  • 4 of 5

This unit (401) exceeded our expectations, the views from inside and out on the balcony were gorgeous! We were looking forward to seeing the beach from the balcony, but were happily surprised to also be enjoying it from the kitchen and not one but TWO sides of the master bedroom! Spectacular waking up in the morning, rolling over in bed to see the beach just outside your window! The decor was calming and beachy, we loved the billowy white sheer curtains on the windows by day; missed our blackout curtains back home a little at night, but seeing the beach first thing in the morning without having to get up to open blinds in the morning was a plus! We loved being close enough to hear the sound of the waves from the balcony where we eat most of our meals! Being on the 4th floor was perfect, close enough to talk down to the pool area! The patio deck was quiet, as were the surrounding units! Another review mentioned that the master bed might be wanting in the comfort department so we had realistic expectations but were happily surprised that we found it nice and comfortable! Loved the bedroom decor and linens in both bedrooms! The kitchen had everything we needed and more, loved that the stove, rather than sink, faced out toward the living area and the ocean view, cooking was a joy! Publix and Starbucks were close by, maybe 5 minutes away which was very convenient. The beach was never crowded and we liked using the 2 beach chairs and umbrella each day, what a treat! IT WAS WONDERFUL! hope to come again soon! Our family already wants to plan a return trip. The layout felt spacious and lots of storage in closets, drawers etc. This is a place you could easily be comfortable for a long stay in winter months Snowbirds!

Relaxing getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this Emerald Escape On Okaloosa Island. The kitchen was very well stocked with dishes and appliances and the décor was very warm. The view was amazing and the weather was perfect! The owner was very responsive and informative when I reached out to her. We will definitely be visiting again!
