About Dr. Richard Grayson

I am an un-retired physician originally from Selma, Alabama. I attended LSU for a year on a football scholarship, graduated from the University of Alabama and studied medicine at Tulane. I served in both the Army and the Navy and practiced ENT in Roanoke, Virginia. Martinique has always been an oasis during my years of practice in Virginia and coming there has become an essential and restorative part of my life. Happily, my wife, Rita and I have returned to the area and live an hour away in Pensacola, Florida.

Dr. Richard Grayson purchased this condo in 2003

Why Dr. Richard Grayson chose Gulf Shores

What attracted me to Martinique in particular is its wonderful French Caribbean flavor and it's unique beauty. Most appealing is it's location on the quiet, unspoiled Fort Morgan peninsula.

What makes this condo unique

While all the amenities of a beach town are nearby, you will find Martinique to be quietly elegant and serene and removed from the busyness of ordinary life. It is a place to slow down and achieve complete relaxation amid the beauty of snow-white beaches. Let the rhythm of the waves and the ocean breezes refresh your spirit. Come. Relax. You'll see. It's just what the doctor ordered.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the absolute pleasure of staying in this beautiful condo March 9-16, 2013. The weather was sunny and a little cool but much warmer than my home in Minnesota! The hot tub at the pool was perfect and we spent many hours relaxing on the comfy deck chaise lounges around the pool overlooking the ocean. I don't think I have ever been on a beach as unspoiled as this. To the East you can literally walk (or run) for 8 or so miles of the Bon Secour National Refuge and not see another person. The sand is the whitest I've ever seen. We saw dolphins several days. We made a big sand castle like we were kids. The main thing we loved is we really felt like we went on vacation. It was so different to be surrounded by modern comforts yet unable to tear ourselves from the view off the patio facing the ocean. We watched sunrise there with our coffee, we had lunch out there, and we enjoyed a nice glass of wine on the bench along the boardwalk heading down to the beach...perfect place to see the sunset. Plan on returning every year to get recharged.

Beautiful Relaxing Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Family vacation trip ... First time to Gulf Shores area ... Condo complex was extremely better than we expected. It was very clean and lots of families either live there or were on vacation like us. Condo we rented was very nice, spacious and comfortable. Owners are very nice and eager to assist with any questions or needs. They have a folder in the living room that has all types of information from specifics with the condo to places to visit and eat. We loved being on the ground floor and being able to access beach and pool easily. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Amazing location and owners - our whole family loved our time here!

  • 5 of 5

While we were originally uncertain about renting a condo, this ended up being one of the best vacations we've taken. The condo was beautiful, and the amenities were top notch. The location on the first floor made getting to the beach a dream, and the beach itself was a wonderful location, being right next to the nature reserve. It was great to be outside of the bustle of Gulf Shores, while still being close enough that we could go into town for dinner or shopping.

The owners were phenomenal to work with, and allowed out 130# Newfoundland to stay with us. This was remarkably generous, and something that not many renters allow. Not only that but four teenage boys had enough room to spread out a bit, and plenty to do both inside and out. They're already asking when we can go back.

Thank you again to the Greyson's for an amazing place to stay, and being so welcoming! We look forward to staying with you again in the future.

Property was great, very comfortable and spacious.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Kitchen well stocked. Only reason not 5 stars has nothing to do with property, but there were some things housekeeping skimped on. Make sure to bring own toilet paper, trash bags, and soaps. Great location.

Still Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have spent Thanksgiving at this marvelous condo. The weather was splendid. The location is perfect. One can watch the sunrise from the patio in comfy Adirondack chairs. One can then walk the beach or sit and read all day. Then the sunset can be viewed by walking a few yards to the walk-way over the dunes. The condo is lovely, we did a jig-saw puzzle this time! We also did nature hikes in the Bon Secour Nature preserve. This location is half way along the Gulf Morgan peninsula. It is just wonderful.
