Property description

Our home, American Idyll, is a 2 bedroom cottage perfectly located within Carillon Beach -- right across from the beach. Two minutes after leaving our brick patio, you will be stepping onto one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Just a few feet away from the dune walkover are two beach lounges with cushions and an umbrella, which are compliments of American Idyll. If you prefer lounging by the pool, you are also in luck. The Lake Carillon Pool, which overlooks Lake Carillon, is just a few doors away. If you want both the Beach and a pool, you can take a two minute stroll down Beachside Drive to the Beach Club Pool which overlooks the Gulf.

Our guests have unobstructed views of the beach and the Gulf from our balcony. Although American Idyll is a cottage, there is nothing limited about its design or amenities. The living room and kitchen/dining are located on the second floor. There is a sleeper sofa and a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen. The two downstairs bedrooms each have a king size bed.


Kitchen: The kitchen has granite counter-tops and full size stainless steel appliances. There is a microwave, coffee maker, blender, hand-held mixer and toaster. The cabinets contain a service for 8, glassware including wine glasses, all manner of pots, pans, baking dishes and corning ware- everything you could possible want to make a gourmet meal.

Bedrooms: There are three flat screen televisions -- one in the living room and one in each bedroom. The bed sheets, comforter and pillows are all high end and very comfortable. Each bedroom has its own bath with a shower and extra absorbent towels. (There is also a half bathroom on the second floor adjacent to the living room and kitchen.)

Garden/Patio: Outside the front door is our garden, sitting porch and brick-covered patio. If you want to watch the world go by, you can sit on the benches in the gazebo next to Beachside Drive. If you want to have a cook out or just enjoy the garden, there are Adirondack chairs and a grill on the brick patio surrounded by the landscaped garden.
