About Kara McFarland

Becky and I had our first date on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico 42 years ago. We have always returned to the Florida Panhandle for vacations. With my family in Mississippi, we finally decided to buy a beach house between Atlanta and Jackson. We have loved the Gulf Shores area and are spending more time here as retirement draws near. Currently, I practice law in Cumming, Georgia (just north of Atlanta). All of our grown children love coming to the beach and we are grandparents of twins and 3 other grandkids..

Kara McFarland purchased this house in 2000

Why Kara McFarland chose Gulf Shores

The beach in this area is much more secluded than areas closer to Gulf Shores. Our house is one of the closest to the ocean. We have some restaurants nearby within 1 -2 miles. Gulf Shores is a 20 minute drive into town.

What makes this house unique

The spacious double decks with beautiful beach views are what most people love about our home. The upstairs view is breathtaking, especially at sunrise and sunset. Dolphins come by regularly and are fun to watch. The beach is secluded because there are no high rise condominiums, only houses and duplexes. The water is clear and the bottom is easily seen for a long way out in the water.

Sullivan, Missouri

fabulous place for a beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home! I searched high and low before picking this house for our family vacation and I am so glad we settled on this one. It is an older home, but they have done many updates and have added two brand new bedrooms. The deck is absolutely beautiful and the proximity to the beach was perfect!! It was about a 20 minutes drive in to Gulf Shores for groceries and such, but for us - it was well worth it for the serenity and not-crowded beaches. The owner was so very helpful and responsive with questions and concerns. The air conditioning was acting up a bit and the owner had someone out to fix it within hours. We saw dolphins just out from the beach and kayak'd just feet from them. The night sky from the deck was breathtaking and the memories we shared during this week at this beautiful place will be cherished forever! Thank you from the Robertson's!!

  • 5 of 5

My family along with 3 other families booked this home as a friends vacation getaway. 14 people total. With 5 bedrooms - the adults had their own private bedrooms while the kids enjoyed sharing the common bunk room. We had plenty of space for everyone and never felt crowded. Multiple decks were WONDERFUL! There are 3 large decks: 2 facing the ocean & one large deck facing the Ft. Morgan area. This gave us plenty of deck space to have a shrimp boil, lounge, lay out and talk or sit & visit. Loved this home!!!

We booked this listing for a family vacation. The house was nice and spacious. There were 16 of us there and there was plenty of room. The owners were wonderful to deal with. There were a couple of issues and when we notified the owners, the issues were corrected immediately. It was great fun to see the children's faces when the dolphins swam past.
