Carillon Beach house description

This upscale, yet cozy, Carillon Beach cottage is a sanctuary where you can gaze out on enthralling views of the beach. Its flowers and lush landscaping are reminiscent of Bermuda. Just out your door you'll lounge on a sugar white sand beach as the mesmerizing emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico relax and rejuvenate you. Enjoy the wonder of young dolphins dancing in the waves as they lap on the beach as you do a little morning shelling on the beach. Maybe you know someone who wants to watch fish jump in quaint Lake Carillon or ring the bell while strolling along in front of the picturesque Carillon Meeting House.

In the early afternoon catch beach breezes at one of the three nearby pools. If you're energetic, tennis courts are easily reached by a leisurely bike ride through Carillon Beach's welcoming streets. A shady Promenade winds through much of the beautiful town and leads to a fabulous pool and children's park loaded with activities.

Enjoy a mid-afternoon stroll through the sparkling shops of Downtown Carillon. Savor a cocktail al fresco as you take in the New Orleans inspired architecture in downtown Carillon Beach.

In the early evening meander across the turn-of-the-century style beach walkover immediately adjacent Slice O' Life and admire the natural splendor of a breathtaking sunset. Later on, enjoy upstairs dining at one of the downtown restaurants. Gaze across the lake as you dine and enjoy the views of this special community. After dinner sit back and enjoy some of the area's best jazz or just let yourself be captivated by the romantic twinkling lights in the Live Oaks surrounding the Meeting House and Green in downtown Carillon Beach.

Be sure to get in the rhythm and enjoy the island sounds of our local music legends for the summertime tradition of 'Groovin-on-the-Green,' held on the village green by Lake Carillon.

Tee it up on one or more of the many golf courses that are just a few short minutes from this idyllic retreat. Several are rated as some of the best in Florida!

Spend an afternoon at Florida's newest and best shopping experience, pedestrian friendly PIER PARK. Have an island drink or an ice cold brew after you stroll through Pier Park and find yourself at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville looking out on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

Return to your cottage and savor the sounds of the gulf from your covered beachside porch. Relax in our gated community with your family and friends. Enjoy walking, riding bikes, and jogging without the complexities of crossing a busy road unlike our neighbors to the west - Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Watercolor, Seacrest and Seagrove - must do along 30A. Leave your worries behind and just chill! Bicycle rentals are available at the shops in downtown Carillon or bring your own from home.

Tired of cooking or eager to have a romantic dinner but don't want to come off the beach? Catered meals may be arranged for just two or for a large party. Want a mid-week cleanup or groceries brought in by private concierge? Private chef/dining, personal shopping, chauffeur, private tours, event tickets and other services available upon request - additional charges may apply.

                              About the owner: Welcome to the Slice O' Life! Our beachside cottage was built for the enjoyment of family and friends. Building homes is one of my passions and meeting people is another. I get to do both through our little slice of sand on Carillon Beach. I grew up in Jacksonville, lived for several years in Shreveport, LA and then lived in the Vinings area of Atlanta, GA while my husband and I raised our two great kids. Our daughter is a top Realtor in Atlanta while our son is an attorney in Atlanta. We Have 2 fabulous rescue Weimaraners, Annie & Maggie that love the yard at our cottage. Check out their portrait on our walls when you visit! I now sell real estate in our beautiful area and get to see the clear blue waters each and every day. We look forward to you booking your stay with us. I will be happy to show you around while you are here. See you soon. Barbara Prather

                              Why the Owner Chose Carillon Beach:
                              The tranquility of Carillon Beach was appealing to us. We wanted a place where we could get away from the madness of our work worlds!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Slice O' Life has over sized porches allowing for plenty of space to enjoy being outside sipping that cup of coffee or your favorite afternoon beverage!
