Why Marilynn Farrow chose Perdido Key
Perdido Key is quiet & peaceful, yet there are plenty of things to see & do & lots of restaurants nearby. The island of Perdido Key area is not as commercial or as congested as Panama City or Destin, yet it still has the sugar white sand beaches & emerald water for which the Panhandle is renowned. Without crossing a street, the Gulf is just a 1 minute walk from our pool to the carpeted boardwalk. Grand Caribbean is both family- and senior-friendly. And the elevator makes it convenient to get up to their 4th floor condo. David was born & raised in Pensacola. Marilynn grew up in Illinois and had never traveled to the Panhandle of Florida until she was an adult. We vacationed with family in several properties along the Gulf Coast before selecting our Grand Caribbean condo in Perdido Key as our 2nd home. We now consider our Perdido Key home-away-from-home one of our favorite spots on earth! We are blessed to have what we feel to be the premier unit in Grand Caribbean--top floor, L-shaped balcony, & best views! On occasion, we've been able to watch the Blue Angels practice from our balcony--so thrilling to see them so close!
What makes this Condo unique
We replaced all 4 mattresses in March, 2019, with brand new ones! There is plenty of room to sleep 6 comfortably--king bed in master, queen bed in guest room, extra long twin bunks built into hallway. Queen sofa bed in living room. Being the top floor, there's no worries about hearing footsteps overhead. We love to entertain family & friends on the balcony, one of the few in Grand Caribbean that has a dining table and 4 comfortable chairs. The private balcony is also a great spot for reading & relaxing & to enjoy Gulf breezes & Florida sunshine! Since the condo has an open concept design, you can visit with family & friends in the living room while preparing meals in the well-equipped kitchen. The dining area seats 6 at the table & 4 at the breakfast bar. Several of Marilynn's watercolor paintings & artwork by other Southeastern artists decorate the walls throughout the condo. The condo serves as the perfect base from which to sightsee & discover Perdido Key & nearby Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, & Pensacola areas . We've compiled a binder for your reference with brochures about our favorite spots--the Big Lagoon State Park, the Naval Aviation Museum, Gulf Islands National Seashore, to name just a few.

Perdido Key Vacation
Wonderful people to rent from. Condo was equipped with everything we needed. Very short walk to the beach which was a plus. Thank you for allowing us to stay ❤️
It was a great vacation
The property was very comfortable with everything that was needed. The location was great to the beach and pool and the owners were charming.
Great trip and condo
"We spent lots of time relaxing on the beach. We celebrated the 4th of July and my wife's birthday. We visited The Gulf (restaurant), Adventure Island, the Shrimp Basket. Our favorite memories were spending the days at the beach & the evenings playing family games. Easy beach access, water was clear, sand bar was close, and seashells were beautiful."
Relaxing at the beach.
The family enjoyed Perdido Key and the condo. The condo location was good. A 5 min. walk to the beach. Being on the top floor we had a view of the beach and the intracoastal waterway. Nice! The condo was nice. AC unit was great. Kitchen big enough for a family of five. Cleaning service could have been better. Overall we enjoyed staying here. Thank you very much.
the condo is in a quite, low traffic area, easy walk to the beach
Thank you for the review! 'Glad you enjoyed our condo! We also appreciate its peace and quiet of the condo location and the short walk to the beach!
We are a family of five and this condo was perfect for us. The built-in bunks were awesome. The private balcony was amazing with a nice view of the gulf. The beach access is not far and easy to get to. The beach was not crowded during our stay especially to the left of the boardwalk. Kitchen was well stocked and the beds were super comfortable. Grocery stores not far away. We loved our stay!
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review! I’m so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay! Delighted that you felt that the new mattresses were comfortable! David and I thought they were when we selected them, but it’s good to hear that positive feedback!
