We are the new owners and have just remodeled and redecorated this beautiful home from top to bottom. Read on for more details, but here’s what you need to know in a snapshot:
(1) “Ambition” is a gorgeous, 3 bedroom suite home with brand new EVERYTHING, gorgeous décor, and all the bikes, beach, and water toys you need for fun;
(2) Your toes are in the white sand of the best beach in the world in 30 seconds after stepping out our door;
(3) Carillon Beach is gated, luxury, family-friendly community that is not crowded, super close to the Panama City Beach Airport, and has so many amenities that you may not need to stop your vacation to leave our friendly neighborhood. Our beach is private and perfect; and
(4) We care about you! You don’t get stuck with a management company. My husband and I take care of you and your stay! We have all 5 star reviews and plenty of references!
Here are the details:
(1) “Ambition,” is stunning!! It’s new, professionally decorated, and gorgeous.
* Beautiful gulf views from 2 balconies. Lake view from other balcony. * Dual-master bedrooms, each with full bathroom and brand-new King Sized bed. * One master bedroom has a claw-foot soaking tub/shower. The other has a full tub and shower. * Kids bunk room with 5 brand-new twin-sized beds in it. (4 bunk beds and 1 trundle mattress) and full bathroom * All Bedroom/Bathroom suites have marbled-top vanities, flat screen high-def TVs, Blue Ray DVD players, iPod players, and luxury linens. * Kitchen with brand-new stainless steel appliances, a side-by-side fridge, Keurig and regular coffee makers, and a gorgeous solid-wood table that seats 8 easily and up to 12 in a pinch. * Upstairs Half-Bath/powder room and a brand-new custom leather sofa with a queen-sized sleeper for additional sleeping area. * Living Room has big flat-screen TV/DVD player and high-end electronics. Opens to a grand, large balcony that overlooks both the ocean and the lake. * 2 car garage and beautiful driveway with room for 2 more cars, and also has room for on-street parking. No parking headaches!! * 9 bikes of different sizes from toddler to adult and even a dual-kid bike trailer!!! * We pay for the Beach Chair Service -- 2 chaise lounge beach chairs with umbrellas and cushions on the beach (Spring through Fall). *There are 2, two-person kayaks, beach towels and blankets, and tons of sand toys for the family! We provide all the toys so you don't have to bring them! * Full-sized washer and dryer on the bedroom level. There is an additional refrigerator/freezer in the bottom level for you to always have ice and room in the fridge! * All of the remodeling, including the exterior and interior painting, was just completed in February of 2012 and touched up in the winter of 2015. It’s gorgeous, but also practical!!!! We designed and decorated it so that you could bring your kids and friends and not worry about breaking my Grandmother’s fine china. * It's spacious enough that two families can easily enjoy it! Since there are two bedroom suites -- both with King Sized beds and full baths as well as a 'kids room' with beautiful decorations, toys, games, puzzles, TV, etc. Our favorite trips are with another couple and all of our kids!
(2) The Best Beach in Florida!!
* Walk out our door and step onto our gorgeous beach in 30 seconds. * Private, perfectly clean, very wide and miles long, and the ocean’s entrance is a very gradual slope. * Our 6 year old son and 5 year old daughter love it so much that they don’t even sit on beach towels or chairs. They just play on it for hours. It’s not like the sandpaper beaches of California where we used to go before we found Carillon Beach. Instead, it’s a lot more like the soft white powder of Deer Valley, Aspen, or Vail – but warm and never melts!
(3) Luxury Family-Friendly Carillon Beach is Amazing!
* 200 home, private, gated, master-planned luxury family-friendly community with 24 hour security. * Carillon Beach is fully on the beachside of any highways, East of San Destin and West of Panama City Beach adjoining Lake Powell. * Three pools in the community are available for all residents and guests. The one overlooking the ocean has two large verandas and chairs surrounding on the deck, the park pool is the largest with adjoining tennis courts, green areas, grills and basketball court. * Basketball court, tennis court, coffee shop, restaurant/bar, and pretty little chapel, and beautiful walking paths. * Unlike Carillon Beach, most areas of 30-A (especially during the summer) are congested and full of nasty traffic. Carillon Beach isn’t like that. It’s at the cross-roads of everywhere you’d like to go, but without the bumper-to-bumper mess you’ll deal in and around Seaside and the 30-A scene. * Located just 15 minutes from Panama City airport, 2 blocks from 2 major grocery stores, and just a few miles west from the impressive “Pier Park,” that has shopping, movie theatres, bars, restaurants, live music, etc. * It’s also just 2 miles east of Rosemary and 7 miles from Seaside. Carillon Beach is NOT a crowded beach area. Carillon Beach is a picture-perfect, secure, high-end community that is fun and relaxing for the entire family.
(4) We Care About You and Your Vacation!
When you rent Ambition, you get the immediate attention of both my husband and I and our professional staff. You will never be stuck calling a rental or property management company, and we are accessible at all times to you. We want you to be thrilled to be in our home, and if there’s ever a hint of a problem, we will resolve it immediately. We offer concierge, cooking, and daily cleaning services (like in a 5 star hotel) at your option. In other words, you get the luxury of staying in a 5 star resort but all the amenities of staying in a beautiful, comfortable home.
Hotels are for business trips or big cities. When we vacation with each other or our family, we always rent a home. We want to feel comfortable, happy, and pampered on your vacation, just like you will at 'AMBITION.'

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Bill and Tisha Stender, currently from Dallas, TX. We have two beautiful children named Will (6) and Zoey (5). We bought this home when the kids were just toddlers, and we made it safe and comfortable for all families. We even supply a toddler highchair, stroller, baby gates, a pack-and-play, toys, games, puzzles, etc. because we understand how families need to be comfortable on vacation, just like we are when we go!!
We come here regularly, and Carillon Beach is the perfect family community. There is something for everything here, and it's all conveniently located!
Why the Owner Chose Carillon Beach: We bought this home at the end of 2011 after vacationing in Carillon Beach for the first time. Our kids, my parents, and us all fell in love with it so much that we had to buy a home here for our family to enjoy forever. We named it 'AMBITION FLORIDA' because it was our dream to have our corner of the world for family vacations. It has brought us closer to each other and with the grandparents because it's the perfect family house. In fact, we have had so much enjoyment at this house that we bought a ski house for the same reason, calling it 'AMBITION UTAH' -- in the Deer Valley/Park City, Utah area.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We take great pride in making our home upscale yet perfectly comfortable. Also, we are dedicated to making your stay great! We are always available in the event of any sort of issue, and we have an on-site property manager and cleaning crew who are dedicated to us. They are young, retired teachers who love the beach as much as the sand itself! This is a huge benefit that is unique to our home! We also offer personal concierge services, like grocery shopping and meal preparation.
