About Terry Sue Gagnet

Two Kids from the South who went to see the world - and lovingly landed back right where they always knew they would ....in the Heart of Dixie ! Michael is a Louisiana boy and Terry Sue is a Mississippi girl who met while living in Southern California. Fate would bring them back to their True Southern Roots right here on the Eastern Shore !

Terry Sue Gagnet purchased this estate in 2011

Why Terry Sue Gagnet chose Daphne

We call it divine intervention. We bought the property sight unseen over the cell phone !! And then thought..WHAT are we going to do now???After one visit and meeting the original owners -the house came alive and magical for us - it was truly meant to be ! From the moment you drive down the meandering driveway not knowing what is in store for you the house captures your heart. We hope that it transports you and your loved ones to a place like no other ! Come enjoy !

What makes this estate unique

Every room in the home has big beautiful sliding glass doors and tons of windows that make you feel as if you are one with nature just outside. Mature trees make this park-like setting truly one of a kind. Relax on the huge deck or sit in the gazebo down by the pond. Wherever your imagination takes you....It's all yours.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in V.R.B.O properties for years (over 15 years) and this home and owner is the best, period. The house is amazing, very well kept, with everything that you will need in the home. The owner is fantastic. Terry went over and above our expectations. Making sure everything was to our liking and even had a case of water and some beer in the refrigerator when we arrived. We were nine guys on a golf trip. We all had our own bed to sleep on and the bathrooms were more than we needed. The house and grounds are just incredible. The owner and the house are a 5 star plus. If you need a place in this location, don't even think about it, book it now! Thanks Terry for allowing us to stay in your incredible house and your great hospitality. We stayed from April 2nd to April 7th, 2018. Thank you Terry!!! DK

Absolutely Magnificent

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this wonderful home for a week. We had plenty of room for 14 people. The home is beautifully decorated and the grounds are gorgeous. My young nephews enjoyed fishing in the pond. The owners are some of the nicest, salt of the earth folks you will ever meet. I highly suggest this home for a large group or family. We will be back! Tara Gaines - Anniston, Al
