About Carole Shackelford

Carl and Carole are owners of the condo in Perdido Key. We now live in Perdido Key and prior we were in Dallas Texas & Nashville, TN. We have 3 children & 6 grandkids currently. Since this is a personally owned and used unit, it should will make it even more special for you. My wife is a gourmet cook and decorator, so we have many cooking items, bathing supplies that are normally not found in a resort management company condo. You will feel right at home with everything you need, to hopefully help you enjoy your stay even more.

Carole Shackelford purchased this condo in 2009

Why Carole Shackelford chose Perdido Key

Close to our home and it is remote enough not to be in a crowded area. We have been vacationing in the gulf coast for years and love it so much we made it our home. Soft white sand and clear water. Now our home !

The condo looked exactly like the pictures. It had a very home feel and you can tell the owners take pride in leasing the unit. We came with children and there was lots for them to do. The owners left games, beach pails and lots of movies. There was even bubble bath for the little ones.The kitchen is like non other! Anything you would need was available. I have nothing negative to say and will def return again. Thank you!!
