Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Leave all of your troubles behind when you enter the doors of “Far Far Away”, your next dream vacation getaway. The stage for an ultimate luxury beach vacation, this new, 4 bedroom, 4 bath, beach home with a 3rd floor game room and Gulf views is in the exclusive, gated Carillon Beach community. With a gourmet kitchen, oversized porches, BBQ patio, ample living spaces and comfortably sleeping 10, 'Far Far Away” is sure to please all of the royalty in your family.

Start and end your day with a tranquil beach stroll: the emerald waters and sugar white sands of Carillon Beach (one of the TOP 10 beaches in the world) are just a short 3 minute walk from your front door (no need to battle the Seaside traffic or cross 30A to get to the beach). Best of all, “Far Far Away” overlooks the largest of 3 pools in Carillon and is adjacent to the recreation park.

You’ll experience total relaxation and privacy in the casual elegance of your vacation retreat. The living room entertainment center holds a 42” LCD HDTV, DVD and CD player to complete the surround-sound theater system. When you’re not watching movies or playing games, you can enjoy the sounds of your favorite music on this multi-room sound system.

The living and dining area is the perfect gathering spot to entertain your family and guests. Your fully equipped designer kitchen contains the latest stainless steel appliances and culinary utensils. The granite bar-top serves as a casual dining area for four. The chef can participate in the family action and there’s plenty of room for your sous chef/helpers.

Your family will love the privacy of four uniquely decorated bedroom suites, each featuring a private bath, TV/DVD system and ceiling fan. The first floor garden-themed PARKSHORE SUITE melts stress away with lush double-sized bedding, luxury linens and a natural stone bathroom. Two of the three 2nd level bedrooms are master suites, each tucked away with a private porch. The CARILLON SUITE, decorated in royal colors, is appointed with luxury queen-sized bedding, reading nook, oversized walk-in shower and a private porch to enjoy that first mug of morning coffee. The bright ROSEMARY SUITE features a wrought iron bed with queen-size bedding, sitting area, double-vanity travertine bathroom with shower for two, and a panoramic promenade view from your private porch resting in Adirondack chairs. Last, but not least, your kids will love the PIRATE's COVE SUITE featuring bunk beds, a treasure load of surprises and a full bathroom with shower and tub. The second level also has a bunk-bed sleeping alcove, where you'll feel like you're sleeping on a cloud.

Sip your favorite drink on the third level game room (with Foosball table) knowing sunrises and sunsets only look this way at the beach. “Far Far Away” is brimming with special touches throughout; granite counter tops from South Africa, Italian travertine bathroom floors, European satin-nickel fixtures, oak hardwood floors throughout, and private porches off the bedrooms and main living area.

Carillon, located just beyond the east end of 30-A, is a gated community 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, play ground, 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. See Links below for more information. Getting to Far Far Away is now even easier with the opening of our new airport, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) in 2011.

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.

And for those of you who must 'work' while on vacation, you will appreciate the recent addition of WiFi high-speed Internet service. NOTE: Please plan on using your mobile phones, as there is no land line phone service at “Far Far Away”.

May your time at “Far Far Away” be filled with relaxing sunsets, cool drinks, and sand between your toes.

(Please note: Minimum age requirement to book this property is age 25 or older). Sorry - no pets or smoking allowed. $225 cleaning fee and 12% sales tax added to all rentals.

Why Jack Mandula chose Sunnyside

We always dreamed of owning a home in Carillon, a quaint, relaxing community, where we leave the real world behind.

What makes this house unique

Just steps to the largest resort-style pool in Carillon (heated in winter) and steps to a beach walkover and Lake Carillon and Lake Powell. 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.

The home was lovely and the community was charming!

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely inside and out and had everything you need. They have stocked lots of rainy day activities. Loved the proximity to the pool. We also loved the community concert and children's activities. It is a bit of a walk to the beach with little children but we took a wagon. Loved the home! Thanks for sharing you beautiful home!

Beautiful home, across the street from the pool...perfect for my boys!

  • 5 of 5

We loved hanging out on the porch visiting with family, the kitchen was perfect...tons of counter space, we enjoyed the patio out back, and we had more than enough room in the bedrooms. We love coming to the beach and this house made our trip even better! We hope to stay here again our next visit!

We really liked the wood floors throughout the house and a bathroom for each bedroom.

  • 4 of 5

The location across from the pool was convenient but the street was extremely busy. The kitchen needs more spoons in silverware drawer and a large cooking pot. An unlocked pantry in kitchen would be handy. Really liked the 2 air conditioner units. The hidabed was not mentioned in the overview. Glad it was there. The Clorox smell in bathrooms was very strong for several days. Would like a window covering for the glass doors in back bedroom for privacy and blockage of early a.m. sunlight. Really enjoyed the shady prominade. Outside shower a plus.
