About Carlos Buckelew

I am a 75 year old retiree that lives in Sun Lakes, Arizona. I grew up in central Louisiana with both my wives. My first wife, Barbara and I were married for 51 years until her death from breast cancer in January, 2011. After her death, my second wife, Gayle and I were reacquainted after not seeing each other for over 50 years. We got married here on the beach in April, 2012. God has blessed me with two of the best women in the world. Thank you God for blessing me. Barb was the artist that painted the murals in our condo 302 and in the office. Gayle and I love Arizona and like to travel and stay active. We always come back here and spend the month of September. We love this beach.

Carlos Buckelew purchased this condo in 1994

Why Carlos Buckelew chose Lower Grand Lagoon

Back in 1994 when Barb and I lived in Indiana, our good friends, Joyce and Gary Hanlon came to Florida and bought the condo next door. They came back to Indiana and told us the condo next to them was for sale. We hurried down here and bought the condo. We loved it and the beach on first sight and love it more each year. We love to come here and just relax and enjoy the beauty of this beach. In 2014, we bought another condo, 403 just a few feet away.

What makes this condo unique

Reasonable rates, near beach, pool right off patio, parking within a few feet of front door, restaurants and entertainment near by, golf within 2 miles, and the most beautiful beaches in the world within a short walk

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my daughters here for a mommy daughter trip. This was my daughters first time at the beach so they were really excited. The condo has some newer furnishings in there than what was shown in the pictures. I loved how the patio was so close to the pool and how close the condo was to the beach. My daughters loved it so much they asked if we could live there. I will definitely be back.

Spring break stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Came down from Tulsa, OK area to stay a few nights for spring break. Very nice, up kept condo, with amazing artwork. Located poolside, with a 3 minute walk to the beach. Loved that the beach area was calm and not over crowded. Would definitely rent from this owner again; he was so helpful and nice!!

So enjoyable, Great Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I could go on and on about how we loved our stay. By far the best and hassle free of all the other places we've stayed at. I love pulling right up to the door, no parking decks, no elevators and no keys to worry about just punch in the code in the door. The pool is outside the back deck. It was great to let my 2 year old nap while I was relaxing on the deck and my son & husband could swim in the pool. The room was clean, bed comfortable and it's so nice to have what you need in the kitchen. We definitely plan on staying here again. The owners were super sweet and great to work with.
