I have rented from Vaughn Rentals for three years ,Donna is pleasant to speak with and very helpful. she goes over beyond being a owner ,she personally came over and left us a bottle of wine and etc' we couldn't ask for a better person to rent from.the mattress and bedding are to die for ,better than I use in my Home.The pictures didn't do justice, the condo was beautiful. my girls loved walking out the door onto the putt-putt course and pool.this will be my vacation spot for years to come .DONNA YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

Clean, well maintained, close to BEACH

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Donna's condo last May and had a wonderful time. This unit was clean, updated, one of the closest to the beach, just a few minutes away. We loved it so much, we are coming back this May as well. Can't wait!

Very Very Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo in June of last year, as with most vacation rentals you wonder if it will be clean enough. This condo was by far the cleanest place we have stayed. We stayed in another one of their condos in September of last year and it was just as clean....All of the appliances have been upgraded. My wife and I spent the mornings overlooking the canal on the screened porch drinking our coffee.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our second year in a row to stay here and it was fantastic again! Will definitely go back.

It would be great if there was a DVD player!

We have stayed at Gulf Highlands with friends on a previous vacation and loved it. This time I booked our stay and we had a wonderful time. Weather was awesome and the unit was amazing. Very clean and recently renovated from top to bottom. Would not hesitate for a moment to book again. The only thing missing was a bbq which would have been nice.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your's always nice to hear about families having a great vacation and enjoying our beach property. I appreciate you noticing the recent renovation and decor the home has to offer. I hope you will book with us again. In response to there not being a BBQ grill I don't understand there was an electric grill on the patio. and now has a propane gas grill and the electric. cant imagine why you didn't have a grill. We do hope to see you again. Donna Vaughn

One of our top two vacations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Gulf Highlands on recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed in any way! This rental is close to beach (walking), the resort is quiet at night. Donna was very easy to deal with and the rental was gorgeous. We came to relax, lay on the beach and just get away. We can't wait to go back next year. I told my husband that this trip ranked in the top two of my favorite vacations...the other was a cruise. LOVED having the private pool on the was a little cool when we got there but warmed up after a couple days. I can not give one Con!

Spring Break at Gulf Highlands 2012

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves Gulf Highlands. We have rented from Donna several times before (all of the condos she owns back up to the mini golf course, great for kids and adults, our boys love to eat breakfast then run out the back door for a quick game of golf before heading to the beach). All of her units are maintained well and kept in very good condition as the pictures show. A gated community with direct beach access and their own Beach Pool with Snack Bar and restrooms. We would recommend this location to anyone for a easy and carefree getaway any time of the year!
