About Tracy Battaglini

Our family traveled around the state and just fell in love with the Emerald Coast. We were blessed to find such good people to help us in building our 'dream home.' We hope you enjoy it as much as we do when we visit.

Tracy Battaglini purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Tracy Battaglini chose South Walton

The white, baby powder fine beaches against the emerald green Gulf just takes our breath away. It is truly God's paradise on Earth.

What makes this cottage unique

One of our family's favorite this gs to do while vacationing at 'Southern Shell is to stroll down to the beach to watch the su set and then to hunt for crabs with our flashlights. The kids just get the biggest kick out of it and it is great quality family time for free!!!

One of our best family Vacays...ever.

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? The house is beautiful! Location is less than a 5 minute walk to a great beach. The area has just enough to keep you busy and still be able to relax. It has just been taken over by new owners/property manager and they are super involved and attentive!! All the amenities you need are there for you. Bedrooms and bathrooms for all plus a guest bathroom..

We spent a great week with 3 adult boys boating, jet skiing, snorkeling, paddle boarding and just swimming and hanging at the beach. 30A is gorgeous!! Your family no matter the age will love it. Your are just a quick drive from all the other fun like the Bay, Crab Island and great restaurants like Boshamps!!

Take a chance on this area and this home...you won't regret it!!! Have a wonderful time.

Thanks Nic and the Oversee Team!

Great beach house, very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with another couple, their baby, and our pooch and we just loved the beach house. Very spacious, and enough room for privacy. Everything was clean, convenient and cozy. Everything seemed to work well. The beach is a short walk away, right across the street and it's a lovely stretch of beach. It is also within great proximity to restaurants, shops, bike rentals, etc. but is far enough away from the high rise hotels that it feels like a very safe, somewhat quite family area, which we all appreciated. We would recommend this home to families or couples traveling together.

It's been better

  • 3 of 5

No wifi, which is was a problem because I am taking online classes. The owner wasn't even willing to fix the problem and didn't tell me until day of check in. The day of the check in the cleaning lady was there over an hour after check in. I get that the last people that rented it trashed the place, but some warning would have been nice. Sitting in a car with kids after driving 11 hours wasn't pleasant. Then the dryer stopped working and we had to plan a half of a day waiting for them to bring a new one. We've stayed here before ands had a better experience. Seems like the owners need to do some TLC. Ice make in fridge not working, legs on chairs wobbly, etc.

The Stay with my friends was great but the owner was not so much and I was mislead!

  • 1 of 5

Me and my friends stayed at the home from April 1st-8th 2017 and we were so pumped for this trip so when we get to the home at 4:00 p.m as that is the check in time, the house was not at all that clean, some of the beds had sand on them and we found a nerf gun hidden behind the couch and we find some Doritos chips under the dinning table. Now that wasn't the problem of why i gave my review a one star but it was for the fact that the posting misleads a traveler. One of the first things we noticed is that there was no Xbox at all and there was no WI-FI in the home at all (for those who can't see where it says Wi-Fi on the posting, it is because it showed up on the phone app and this is what it reads. "Southern Shell offers Wi-Fi to all guest. the Wi-Fi system is a Verizon jet-pack which is located on the kitchen counter. The password is on the back. Please do not remove the Wi-Fi system from the kitchen counter.") So I attempted to contact Tracy, which took about 6-7 tries as she forwarded my calls and sometimes picked up and put the phone to side and i can hear talking in the back ground. So the first time I was actually able to talk to Tracy, she explained that the Xbox and Wi-fi was driving her bills up, so she removed the items, I would have been fine if that was in the description of the listing. I called her back another time after looking at her listing again to double check and i found so no evidence of her writing that they were taken out, so I explained to her that a lot of us had no service (T-mobile has no service in this area or barely any) and that we would like this resolved as I work off my laptop and some of us had school work to do and so she explained that there was no way to give us Wi-Fi and that she could credit us back $100, which i still have not seen, and so I explained that is fine but we'd much rather prefer the Wifi and that what she is doing is misleading and false advertising on her listing and then she hung up on me. In the end me and my friend made do and we had fun but I also filed a report with Homeaway about this situation and I would have given this review a 2 maybe 2.5 if that was possible, but because of the owners treatment towards me and being mislead about this home, this gets a 1 star and for those who are planning to stay here, know that she takes forever to respond through the homeaway app and that you should have her confirm with you in messaging that everything is there as promised.

October Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described. Location is great, very close to beach. Definitely an easy walk. Perfect accommodations for couples. Great access to bikes and bike paths. We have already recommended 30A and this location to friends. Tracy was prompt to reply and resolve any concerns.

Awesome and amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We loved your home. This home provided everything we needed. We had 8 family members to stay in this home and we had enough space and privacy for everyone. Truly loved everyone had their own private bath room. The walk to the beach was short and nice. Such a great location and layout of the home. The decor was beautiful and relaxing. Would definitely stay again!!
