Property description

One visit to 'Once Upon A Time' and you will know you are visiting an enchanted place! It is the stage for an ultimate luxury beach vacation in a delightful, new, four bedroom, three and-a-half bath, Gulf view, beach retreat with a viewing tower in exclusive, gated Carillon Beach. With a gourmet kitchen, oversized porches, ample living spaces and comfortably sleeping 10, 'Once Upon A Time' is sure to please everyone in your family.

Our beach house is in a prime location less than 98 steps away from almost one mile of sugar white sand at Carillon Beach. No need to tolerate the Seaside traffic or cross 30A to get to the beach when you have all of the privacy and security of Carillon with the conveniences of a vibrant gated resort community.

Carillon, located just beyond the east end of 30-A, is a gated ommunity of single-family homes located within steps to Carillon Beach, Downtown Carillon, Lake Powell and bicycle paths that will take you along the adorable beach communities of Rosemary, Seaside, and Seagrove, and several state parks. There are plenty of amenities at Carillon; including three pools (one heated, one gulf front), beach club, two tennis courts, kiddie pool, basketball court, bicycle rental and, of course, plenty of beach front to enjoy. Enjoy live music at 'Grooving on the Green' during summer, or listen to the music of the Gulf right out your front door. Carillon Beach Chair Service is provided (March 1- October 15) for your pleasure which includes two chaise lounge chairs and a large beach umbrella. Pier Park, the Emerald's Coast newest desination shopping/theater/resturant complex, is just a 10 minute drive away. See Links below for more information. Getting to Once Upon A Time is now even easier with the opening of our new airport, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) in 2011.

Start and end your day sipping your favorite beverage on the third floor tower deck knowing sunrises and sunsets only look this way at the beach. This tropical beach home is brimming with special touches throughout; granite countertops from South Africa, Italian limestone floors and walls in the bathrooms, European satin-nickel fixtures, Australian cypress hardwood floors throughout and private porches off each bedroom and main living area.

Decorated in West Indian style, this beach house includes all the comforts of home including first-class furnishings, a TV in each bedroom and for those of you who must 'work' while on vacation, you will appreciate the recent addition of high-speed Internet/DSL service. The main living area is equipped with a home theatre system and family game area.

The master bedroom is a private island paradise tucked away on the second level. Decorated with tranquil sea foam colors and appointed with lush, luxury king-size bedding, you will feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. A private porch with comfortable chairs is the perfect place for breakfast or relaxing seclusion.

The master bath features both a stand-up shower and separate tub to melt away any stresses from work or home. His and hers sinks along with an oversized master closet offer ample storage for a week or a month in paradise.

Also located on the second floor is a second private bedroom/bath suite with a queen bed and private deck, a nautical bunk nook with two beds and a bright 'kids room' with a queen Murphy bed, porch and a TV/VCR/DVD player combo that can be hooked up to a PS2 for entertaining the kids when they are not in the pool, riding bikes, or at the beach.

The first floor guest room is a private suite with queen-sized, pinapple-themed luxury bedding. You will enjoy delightful quiet mornings sipping coffee on the screened porch overlooking the beach boardwalk before heading to the beach for another sun-drenched day of emerald-colored waves that lap the shores of our sugar-white sand beaches.

For the quick grocery trip, Publix and Winn Dixie are just 1/4 mile away. For added convenience, a washer and dryer are also included.

May your time at our new beach paradise 'Once Upon A Time' be filled with relaxing sunsets, cool drinks, and sand between your toes. We know you will come back every year so do not miss your chance to book your reservation today! Dates are booking fast ($500 security deposit required)! (Please note: Minimum age requirement to book this property is age 25 or older). Sorry - no pets or smoking allowed. $225 cleaning fee & 11.5% FL sales tax added to all rentals.

Kids can ride their bikes and parents can know they are safe inside the property. Carillon is great for walking, running and biking. Playground, tennis courts and basketball courts. 24 hour gated community- no traffic. Outdoor summer concerts series and outdoor movies on Village Green beside Carillon lake. Lake Powell and St. Helen state park adjacent to Carillon Beach. Great fishing and exploring. Pier Park is 10 minutes away- More than 125 restaurants like Margaritaville, Tootsies, Five Guys, Cold Stone Creamery, Red Robin, Panera Bread, Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse, to name a few, shopping (Target, Dillards, Walmart) and 18 screen IMAX theater. Immediately outside of the 24-hour Carillon guard gate is a Publix, Winn Dixie and CVS Pharmacy for all of your needs. On-site Sunday Service, Weddings, Trivia Night at Castaways, Shipwreck store for souvenirs. Rosemary Beach, Seaside, Alys Beach, and Grayton Beach are close by.
