About John Gaines

We are retired and currently reside in the North-West Georgia Mountains. We purchased a vacation home at Gulf Crest in 2009 and I am currently President of the Gulf Crest Homeowners Association Board of Directors. We recently purchased a second Condo at Gulf Crest because we believe it is one of the best properties on the Beach.

John Gaines purchased this condo in 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at Gulf Crest. The condo was clean, spacious and had everything we could possibly need. Beautifully decorated, high ceilings and a huge balcony. The property is just fantastic! Two beautiful pools, two hot tubs, two free beach chairs. I would love to come back to this place!!
