About Marilynn Farrow

Business & rental property owners-managers for over 30 years, David & Marilynn Farrow resided in North Metro Atlanta (Cherokee County, Georgia) until their recent move to Florida, within an hour of the condo. Providing excellent customer service has always been their focus. David Farrow currently owns and operates an appliance repair business in Milton, FL. He is a veteran of the US Army. Marilynn is a retired special needs preschool teacher. They have 3 grown sons and 1 grandson. David & Marilynn love the Lord and volunteer in their community in a variety of ways, including David's serving as Vice-President of Grand Caribbean's Homeowner's Association.

Marilynn Farrow purchased this condo in 2006

Why Marilynn Farrow chose Florida Main North West

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 is both family- and senior-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. They now consider their Perdido Key home-away-from-home one of their favorite spots on earth!

What makes this condo unique

David & Marilynn love to entertain family & friends in the dining area which seats 6 at the table & 4 at the breakfast bar. Since it's an open concept design, Marilynn can visit with family & friends in the living room while preparing meals in the well-equipped kitchen. There is plenty of room to sleep 8--king bed in master, queen bed in guest room, bunks built into 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Marilynn & David,

Thanks so much for sharing your home AGAIN! Once again, you helped our family build some fabulous memories and start building new ones with the new grandbaby. We had a wonderful time and can't wait till next time! --358 days and counting! God Bless!

Great little "Home away from home"

  • 5 of 5

By far one of the best properties we have stayed at! We have a 4 yr old and 2 yr. old, this place was perfect for our girls to feel at home. We really enjoyed all the little things that were provided, such as Kleenex boxes in the perfect places, coffee filters, laundry detergent, dish soap, etc. We were worried about the condo being on the 4th floor but we would not have had the amazing views if it were on a lower level, the large balcony really makes it too. They recently installed a new AC unit which works amazingly. Another great thing about this property is the owners being available with any renter concerns. I was able to communicate with the owner via text message/phone with prompt responses, really a wonderful couple to rent from. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting a "Home away from home" feel!

Nice, quiet location away from the main drag, with a fantastic layout.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place & will be returning. Located away from all the touristy hot spots. Family-oriented area & quiet. This condo offers a view of the water, with a short distance walk that doesn't require crossing the street. Where this condo is located on the property, it has an actual wrap-around balcony. The bedrooms are offset from the main living space, so there is privacy if you have someone in your group that goes to bed early, while the rest of your group hangs out, cooks, plays cards, etc. Nice pool, with a really great spa tub to relax in at the end of the day.

I really can't recommend this unit enough. I only live an hour from this area, so I grew up on the coast & have stayed at many, many condos in the area. This condominium offers affordability with the same amenities as a beachfront condo, without the beachfront price.

Thank you, Marilyn & David, for the use of your unit. My family & I loved it and plan to return in the fall.

Great Family Vacation

Very family friendly with close proximity to the beach and a wonderful pool and hot tub in the complex. My 4 year old twins particularly liked the bunk beds. Great place to relax.

Family Vaction 2016

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a great time! Condo is very spacious and was clean on arrival, we liked the corner views and balcony. Owners were great people to deal with, checked in with us after arrival and departure to make sure everything went well. Easy walk to the beach, kitchen had everything we needed, washer and dryer in the unit is a plus for us. We usually make simple meals ourselves and only went out once to Lillians pizza, that was really good. Visited the air museum, very nice. Great experience all around!

Penthouse condo stay

  • 5 of 5

It was cold and windy most of the time, but we were snug in the condo. We enjoyed just resting, reading, watching

TV (great reception), and putting puzzles together. Of course we tried the Mexican restaurant across the street, Lillian's Pizza and Publix fried chicken. I would say it was great to just get away and rest up and be out own boss

for the week. Very quite and the king size bed sleeps great! Thanks to Marylyn and Dave for sharing your place

with us. We felt God's presents in your condo and that made it very special to us.

Family Time

  • 4 of 5

Our family certainly enjoyed our time away together. This condo met our needs very nicely. It was clean, comfortable and spacious. The walk to the beach was easy and the pool and hot tub are very well maintained. The grounds are maintained and the landscape company was putting fresh mulch. They were very curtious to customers coming and going. We were happy with out stay.
