Only one-bedroom Guest Cottage on Lake Carillon and steps to a beautiful beach.

Currently... Construction of our main house on the same lot is underway as of 1-1-2018. We are not renting until June of 2018 to allow for the main part of construction to be completed where only the interior of the house will be under construction from a noise and privacy issue. Construction in Carillon is restricted to 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday only. Please take this into consideration if you are considering renting. I will be more than happy to discuss a possible discount until we know our completion date. Please contact me before booking. Thanks, Steve & Tonda

Beautiful Brand New Lakefront 1BR 1BA Romantic Couples Retreat in Carillon Beach. It's cozy, and offers everything you need including full-size kitchen appliances and washer/dryer. For peaceful nights, there is a king size bed with memory foam mattress. The home offers a lot of space outside with a 150 square foot balcony with a dining set and patio with a grill and Adirondack rocking chairs that sit right on Lake Carillon - all perfect for Happy Hour and watching sunsets. Or enjoy the swing in the pergola out front. When you're ready to go to the beach, it's a short walk down the sidewalk to Crossover #7 where you will find 3/4-mile of beautiful beach. No need to cross a busy street. There you will find two lounge chairs with an umbrella reserved just for you. When you've had enough sand, enjoy the pool overlooking the ocean, a heated pool, or the pool just five lots from InnJoy. When you return, enjoy the outside shower with hot water.

***RATES: Any reservations starting June of 2018, please inquire directly to us about specific dates.

Home constructed by Grand Floridian Builders, a family company that has built more homes in Carillon than any other builder.

About Steve Ferguson

We are from the Dallas/Ft Worth area. We are planning on one day retiring to the Carillon Beach community and renting out InnJoy year round so we can meet beach lovers like ourselves.

Steve Ferguson purchased this Cottage in 2016

Why Steve Ferguson chose Laguna Beach

We searched for years looking for the right beach location. After a taste of the hustle and bustle of Rosemary and Seaside and all points in between, we stumbled across Carillon Beach. So much more peaceful and so less crowded. No need to cross a major busy street and fight for a spot on the beach. Now we have two lounge chairs with an umbrella reserved on the beach in our own little slice of heaven allowing us and our guests to come and go as we please. No traffic issues to deal with as Carillon's entrance is on Hwy 98 - just across the Lake Powell bridge. We can go enjoy all that 30A has to offer when we choose without dealing with the daily traffic. If you want to have a relaxing vacation, please try InnJoy at Carillon Beach and enjoy all we have to offer.

What makes this Cottage unique

The Dream of InnJoy. Original concept, an upscale couples only Romantic Beach Cottage. It was not designed for children and let's reserve the right for limited times that we accept couples only requests. Tonda spent months designing and developing the most efficient use of space for a couples romantic getaway to the beach when it's just the two of you. As so many reviews have described as a perfect couples romantic getaway steps to the Emeral Coast Beaches. InnJoy becomes your new vacation home, like a time share with no strings and a KING size bed.

This place was perfection in a small package. The place was immaculately clean and designed beautifully. Located in a gated community that has all of the amenities you could possibly desire. The home is located literally 100 yards from the dune walkover to the pristine beaches of the gulf coast. Beach chairs and umbrella are included with the rental, so you can pack light knowing that everything is waiting for you. After spending time at the beach you can relax at lakefront pool which is just a few lots away from InnJoy. You can enjoy meals or a drink with a view from the lakefront deck or head out to one of the many restaurants that are just minutes away. The owners Steve and Tonda have created the perfect little vacation spot. They made sure that we arrived safely and let us know that they were available to call if we had any questions or concerns. We are already looking forward to returning for many years to come. Thank you both for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

The owner was readily available with quick response times, and the carriage house is in pristine condition. During our July/August visit, the gulf was as clear and beautiful as it has ever been, truly like a post card photo! Everything is top notch, from the cozy mattress, fine linens, high end finishes, to the bright cheerful decor. Beach time was easy since the umbrella and chaises are provided. The unit has beach towels, ice packs, a well stocked kitchen, hair dryer + toiletries, huge shower with awesome water pressure, books, magazines, and everything else needed for a relaxing vacation. Loved it! Thanks, Steve and Tonda! ---Vicki and Sophie

We had a great time preparing our meals in the" have everything you can think about " kitchen. Tiny house is So close to the beach that we could hear the waves at night. We enjoyed our mornings quiet time and breakfast outside with the tranquil lake view. Inn Joy is truly a gem. And the owners are fantastic to work with. Blessings upon blessings. We have been vacationing on 30A for years, from Destin to Panama City, and Carillon Beach is the best! Very close to busy Seaside and Panama City if you feel like going out fora nice dinner or catch a movie, we did both and it was nice, but to be honest we could not wait to go back to Carillon and enjoy our sweet place. We were very impressed with the architecture and beauty of the Vilagge. The Beach Pool House is a plus! Roger and I made unforgettable memories and are already planning our trip back.

                                                                  Perfect location and great owners.

They have stocked the home with everything you can think of. Is located in between 2 pools and not even 1 block to wlak to the beach access! We will be back.

                                                                  Perfect house for a beach getaway!

The house had plenty of space for two adults and our two kids under five. Short walk to the beach and pools that were super convenient. We love how the beaches aren't crowded and that there were chairs and an umbrella waiting for us everyday. We ate all of our meals on the back deck overlooking the gorgeous lake. Steve was extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we needed when we checked in. Every inch of the home was beautifully decorated and functional - it truly felt like home. I HIGHLY recommend this property! We are already counting down the days until we come back to stay at InnJoy!

                                                                  Great! Perfect beach getaway. Amenities were very well thought out.

                                                                  randy b.

From the decor, kitchen appliances, cookware, bedroom and bathroom needs. One thing my wife did say she would recommend, would be a full length mirror. The spectacular view from the living room and deck that overlooks the lake make your mornings and afternoons peaceful and relaxing! Just a short walk to the beach and having the beach chairs/umbrella waiting on you is perfect. Can't wait to see the new home and look forward to staying at InnJoy again.
