Why Marilynn Farrow chose Perdido Key
Perdido Key is quiet & peaceful, yet there are plenty of things to see & do & lots of restaurants nearby. The island of Perdido Key area is not as commercial or as congested as Panama City or Destin, yet it still has the white sand beaches & emerald water for which the Panhandle is renowned. Without crossing a street, the Gulf is just steps away. Grand Caribbean has excellent ocean views and is family-friendly. And the elevator makes it convenient to get up to their 4th floor condo. David was born & raised in Pensacola. Marilynn grew up in Illinois and had never traveled to the Panhandle of Florida until she was an adult. They vacationed with family in several properties before selecting their Grand Caribbean condo as their 2nd home. Marilynn now considers their Perdido Key home one of her favorite spots on earth!
What makes this condo unique
David & Marilynn spend a lot of time enjoying the views from their top end unit L-shaped balcony. They love to entertain family & friends in the dining area which seats 6 at the table & 4 at the breakfast bar. Family & friends often spend the night; there is plenty of room to sleep 8--king bed in master, queen bed in guest room, bunks in hallway, sleeper sofa in living room--being the top floor, there's no worries about hearing footsteps overhead. The Farrows like to take camping chairs their condo is equipped with down to the shore just steps away. From the shore, David goes fishing; Marilynn paints watercolors of local landscapes and wildlife (several of her paintings decorate the walls in the condo). They like to go on sightseeing trips & are always discovering something new about the Perdido Key & nearby Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, & Pensacola areas . For their guests, they've compiled a binder of brochures about their favorite spots--the Big Lagoon State Park, the Naval Aviation Museum, Gulf Islands National Seashore, to name just a few. On occasion, they're able to watch the Blue Angels practice from their balcony.
