Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
