About Terry Sue Gagnet

Two Kids from the South who went to see the world - and lovingly landed back right where they always knew they would the Heart of Dixie ! Michael is a Louisiana boy and Terry Sue is a Mississippi girl who met while living in Southern California. Fate would bring them back to their True Southern Roots right here on the Eastern Shore !

Terry Sue Gagnet purchased this estate in 2011

Why Terry Sue Gagnet chose Daphne

We call it divine intervention. We bought the property sight unseen over the cell phone !! And then thought..WHAT are we going to do now???After one visit and meeting the original owners -the house came alive and magical for us - it was truly meant to be ! From the moment you drive down the meandering driveway not knowing what is in store for you the house captures your heart. We hope that it transports you and your loved ones to a place like no other ! Come enjoy !

What makes this estate unique

Every room in the home has big beautiful sliding glass doors and tons of windows that make you feel as if you are one with nature just outside. Mature trees make this park-like setting truly one of a kind. Relax on the huge deck or sit in the gazebo down by the pond. Wherever your imagination takes you....It's all yours.

What a wonderful way to spend our family vacation on Father's Day weekend!! My wife and I along with our kids and grand kids had a blast!! In addition to the property meeting and exceeding our family vacation needs ,Terry was an added plus. She made sure we were comfortable during our stay and was readily available to answer questions, provide directions and share her knowledge of the surrounding community. We had a blast. My family said if asked to give a rating, give10 stars (5 for the property and 5 for Terry, the owner).

Fabulous for Family!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the nicest VRBO property I have ever rented. My 5 brothers and I needed a place to stay for my nephew's wedding and this property was perfect. Unlike many places I have rented in the past, this place has it all! Just pack your clothes and bring any food you want to prepare, the rest is there! No need to pack extra toilet paper! Terry Sue even supplies shampoo and body soap! If you are going to cook, the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, small appliances, storage containers, etc. But be sure to eat out a few times. Downtown Fairhope is less than 10 minutes away and boasts some great restaurants. Terry Sue highly recommended Dragonfly Food Bar and it did not disappoint. My foodie daughter discovered Local, where we dined for lunch one day. She even had a water buffalo burger! If you want to eat at one of the seafood restaurants on the bay, I suggest you make reservations as early as you can. Our group was not able to get into any of them on a Saturday evening. There are only two TVs in the house (nice big TVs though!) one in the kitchen area and one in the TV room upstairs (this is also the room that has the two twin beds as well as a large sectional sofa.) We didn't miss having more TVs, it just encouraged us to gather in the kitchen or to turn off the TV and play games. The beds were very comfy and the towels were plentiful and seemed like they were brand new. If you are coming to the Fairhope/Mobile area with a large group, contact Terry Sue!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe how beautiful and homey this place really is. Sue was a delight to talk to and very helpful with everything. I would not hesitate staying here again. Everything was very clean, and well taken care of. The property is gorgeous and very peaceful. Thank you for having us!

We have been staying in V.R.B.O properties for years (over 15 years) and this home and owner is the best, period. The house is amazing, very well kept, with everything that you will need in the home. The owner is fantastic. Terry went over and above our expectations. Making sure everything was to our liking and even had a case of water and some beer in the refrigerator when we arrived. We were nine guys on a golf trip. We all had our own bed to sleep on and the bathrooms were more than we needed. The house and grounds are just incredible. The owner and the house are a 5 star plus. If you need a place in this location, don't even think about it, book it now! Thanks Terry for allowing us to stay in your incredible house and your great hospitality. We stayed from April 2nd to April 7th, 2018. Thank you Terry!!! DK
