Perfect family beach spot

  • 5 of 5

Love the community of Carillon ...just down the road from lots of shopping, restaurants, etc., nestled in a quiet community with great pools. Great spots for bike riding and walking. Just a short walk to the beach. Was perfect for our family,

Perfect location and beautiful beach house

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was the perfect size for our two families to split and we never felt crowded. The house had all that we needed with a short 5 minute walk to the beach - where we spent most of our days! It was also super convenient to the tennis courts and pool. The spacious porches were where we spent a lot of time in the mornings relaxing. We are already hoping to stay at this same house again next year. Love, love this house and Carillon Beach.

Beautiful home, well located

  • 5 of 5

First time to the area and really enjoyed this home and the location. Friends stayed nearby in Rosemary Beach and for a family with very young children, we enjoyed this location far more. Community pool and park very close and the beach just as close in the other direction. Home had everything we needed and it’s in great condition. Owner was extremely nice and very helpful.

Great house!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was warm and inviting and so convenient to restaurants, beach and entertainment. Our "girls" group is already talking about our return next year. The Church family was so helpful before and during our trip. Thanks for welcoming to us to your wonderful beach home.

Our Baxter Family Fall Break for 2017

  • 4 of 5

We had a good stay at Family Tides. Mr. Church was good to work with and handled issues that came up in a timely fashion. The only two issues we had was the upstairs toilet not flushing and the smoke detector began beeping at 3 in the morning and even with a battery change; it continued to beep. Long story short, the detector was bad and has to be replaced. The beach chairs, umbrellas, and bicycles were great extra items to have access to. Did not like the busy road next to the house, however.

Owner's Response: Melissa, sorry about the toilet and smoke detectors but glad you had a good vacation. Bruce
