About Carolyn Merkley

My husband & I reside in Lou KY, we have 4 children, 11 grandchildren, all living within 6 miles of us, and wanted beach property that we could all enjoy and not spend 2 days on the road to get there. We choose 'Tropical Haven' as that destination. We all go there as often as possible & really enjoy the Gulf of Mexico the beautiful landscaping of Martinique, & the friendliness of the people of South Alabama.

Carolyn Merkley purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Carolyn Merkley chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We purchased a home at Martinique because of the quiet beautiful place it is & we can still get to crowds, shopping, restaurants, mini golf, golfing, hiking, beach, anywhere we want to go within minuets.

Great Beach Neighborhood House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house. I think the price was fair. It was perfect for my family of four. The house was clean, had plenty of dishes for cooking (which is usually lacking), had plenty of beach toys, bikes, golf cart, a huge screened porch, and pretty well childproofed! ! We would definitely come back and stay here again.

Best Girls Trip Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Tropical Haven is truly a haven! It was absolutely perfect for our spring break trip! The home is beautiful and it has everything you need for your stay. There are plenty of chairs, beach toys and bikes in the garage and using the golf cart to get to the beach is such a treat. We sat on the screened in porch every morning drinking our coffee and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Martinique is just gorgeous; we love the landscaping, the pools and the workout center and the beach is one of the best! We would highly recommend Tropical Haven and Martinique! We certainly hope to return soon.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat vacationers at the Tropical Haven and look forward to going back every year! The amenities are great, the kitchen has everything you need - we've even cooked a Thanksgiving meal while there! The owners have bicycles for every age available, pool and beach toys, chairs, etc. The kids love riding the golf card the short distance to the beach and my husband loves the availability of a gas grill for relaxing evenings. The beaches are beautiful and the environment is quiet and relaxing. Looking forward to our trip next year!

Just right

  • 5 of 5

The three bead rooms were wonderful and decorated very tastefully. Any size bicycle needed was in the garage along with a golf cart to ride to the beach. Pools at mid point and the beach were great and the white sand at beach was like sugar. Our kids loved crab hunting at night on the beach. They cannot wait to go back, and we will.
