About John Gaines

We are retired and currently reside in the North-West Georgia Mountains. We purchased a vacation home at Gulf Crest in 2009 and I am currently President of the Gulf Crest Homeowners Association Board of Directors. We recently purchased a second Condo at Gulf Crest because we believe it is one of the best properties on the Beach.

John Gaines purchased this condo in 2013
