About The Owner

Avid golf fans from the Southern Tennessee/North Alabama area.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Gulf Shores

My husband is an avid golfer, and The Peninsula offers the best golfing facility in the Gulf Shores area with 27 holes of challenging, beautiful golf and a staff that is first rate.

What makes this condo unique

Our condominium is so spacious and homelike -- complete with top-of-the-line furnishings and appointments. With its location in The Peninsula Golf and Racquet Club, you have the peace, quiet, and security of a gated community. The community is ideal for walking or jogging, or you can sit on the screened porch and watch the golfers pass by. Pack a picnic for lunch or dinner, and a short walk will take you to the pier and gazebo on Bon Secour Bay. Of course, the wonderful gulf beaches are only a short drive away, and the Tanger Outlet Center is about a 15 minute drive north.

Relaxing Time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just left this lovely home and as always it was very relaxing. A piece of serenity is exactly what we needed and was looking for. I enjoyed it so much, I will be booking this lovely home again next month. Mary Sue and Keith, thank you for giving my husband and I a very enjoyable, restful vacation. Blessing - Karon

The most relaxing vacation in years!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the best one I have ever stayed in and had everything we needed for cooking the fresh seafood we bought nearby. The decor is lovely and reminds me of home. No cheap beachy theme here. The 3 bedrooms were spacious and the mattresses were extra comfortable with luxury linens. Full size laundry was also a wonderful addition. We will be back.

What a great unit! If you don't have to be on the beach this is a great place to stay. Definitely the nicest unit and the most space we have ever had at the beach. Very nicely furnished and great view of the green on the first hole of the golf course. We will be back. Thanks for a great time at the beach!!!

First class all the way!

  • 5 of 5

Everything from large and small kitchen appliances to linens and furnishings is all high end. Beds and pillows are all very comfortable. This golf villa is unlike many rentals where the owners skimped on the amenities. As the headline says, everything is first class. We are golfers and it's so wonderful to be right at the course. We plan to return next year!
