Carillon Beach is a quiet oasis of tranquility and privacy centrally located near some of the 'world's most beautiful beach's'' major attractions. Three miles from award winning Rosemary Beach and twelve miles from internationally acclaimed Seaside, Carillon offers quick access to the best of the beaches while offering a safe, family atmosphere in a gated community.

But, Carillon also offers three pools, including one beach side, tennis courts, and play areas for your children.
Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: Mike and Lanora Medley from Dothan, AL. We have three children, Margaret Ann is 24, James-Michael 19 and Christopher 17. All three learned to swim in the beach-side pool of Carillon. We enjoyed many fun night-time crabbing adventures in the Gulf. It's truly a second home to us.
Why the Owner Chose Carillon Beach: Our family has vacationed at Panama City Beach since the early 1960's. Upon our marriage in 1985, we spent seven years looking for just the right place in Northwest Florida. We purchased our property in the early years of Carillon's development knowing it would become a special place for us to enjoy with our entire family.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The unique location of Carillon Beach and our property makes for a special place to vacation. Carillon is a safe, gated community. The development has one mile un-crowded beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. It also has 3 pools, tennis courts, a park, down-town area, and a Chapel that provides year-round non-denominational Sunday worship services. Carillon is a great place to enjoy walking and bike rides while listening to the beautiful Carillion Bells. Few places provide lakeside living while only steps away from the sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and beachside pool.
