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 on the board of Grand Caribbean's Homeowner's Association.

Marilynn Farrow purchased this condo in 2006

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 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 6 comfortably--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 surf 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!

Did someone say hurricane?

  • 4 of 5

We booked this condo over a long weekend in Oct. The first day and a half the weather was perfect, the gulf a little rough, but all good. Needless to say we spent a lot of time in the condo as the hurricane came in all day Saturday and into the night. We never lost power and were about the only people in the condo units. We met nice owners and a few others that were staying. If ever you are there and renting during a hurricane, I feel pretty safe in this unit.

Great location, great accommodation. Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six- grandparents, parents, a preschooler, and a baby- fit perfectly in this comfortable condo! The two bedrooms and two full baths gave us great privacy, and the bunk beds in the hall were perfect for our little "big kid." The kitchen was roomier than I expected from the photos. Two of us could easily prep meals together with elbow room to spare, and having the washer and drier was a lifesaver. The outdoor space at the condo really enhanced our stay. This unit is on the top floor and on the outer corner, so we had a big, wrap-around balcony with a table and chairs. We watched 4th of July fireworks in almost all directions from up there! We enjoyed many meals on the balcony and inside at the kitchen bar (with stools), and at the ample dining table. So much room to be together or have some space. The pool at the condo is in the perfect location to get afternoon shade. We found the beach path and shower staton to be easily accessed. One unexpected perk on the property was the huge grassy, fenced-in lawn. It was a great place to play games or for kids to run around. We enjoyed the condo's collection of chairs and beach toys. The building is almost the last before Johnson Beach, which is a protected area. That meant that even if the beach had been crowded from the neighboring high-rises (it wasn't), a short walk down the beach brought us to undeveloped, empty beach. It was nice also not to have to sit in traffic on the main drag every time we went out, but still be very close to iconic places like the Flora-Bama. We really enjoyed this family-friendly condo and highly recommend it.

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!
