About Ken Ross

Carillon Beach is as close to the most perfect vacation spot as we have found. We have vacationed on the Gulf coast for several years with our children and grandchildren and have always had a wonderful time. When this Beachfront home in the North West Florida Panhandle became available, we felt it would be a great place for our family and others to enjoy. We were impressed with its location in Carillon Beach which offers all the amenities one would want for a family getaway. We are excited to introduce you to or invite you back to the completely renovated version of Generations Beach House, a Gulf-front 4 BR 4 Bath Main House with 2 BR 2.5 Bath Guest Cottage.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

Generations was perfect for our family! Beautiful panoramic view of the ocean and easy access to the beach. The house was clean, neat and well stocked and just the right size for our family of 12...6 adults and 6 kids ages 3 to 10. We will be returning!

Best Equiped Vacation Rental Property In The Area

For the past twenty five consecutive years my family and I shared numerous vacation properties from Seaside to Carillon. Generations fits our needs/desires better than any other.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Loved the neighborhood. We walked. Swam. Fun with golf cart

  • Submitted: May 27, 2017
  • Stayed: May 2017
  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Carillon Beach's award winning Beach, architecturally designed layout of private streets, and sand walkways do provide more ways than most neighborhoods to walk, ride bikes, and use golf carts safely. The 3 pools are available to all guests but they do pale in comparison to swimming in the turquoise water over the sugar white sand!

Luxury and convenience at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful home! Everything was easy and stress-free from beginning to end. Comfortable, clean, high-end throughout. Groceries only 5 minutes away; restaurants, shopping are close as well. It's a real delight to walk right out onto the beach! Perfect for a true getaway vacation. It really doesn't get any better than this. Highly recommend.

Perfect Fall Vacation on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our multigenerational family (4 adults, 2 teens and 3 children) recently spent a week at this beautiful beachfront home, and our experience could not have been any better. We have stayed in multiple homes in the area and this one was my personal favorite. The back house is really nice for a bit of privacy/separation, and the kids loved the downstairs "movie room." The master bedroom/bath/closet and balcony are so nice and spacious. The entire property is beautiful and takes full advantage of the beachfront view. Our very favorite activity was sitting on the main balcony to watch the sunset together each night. We also particularly like the Carillon Beach area. We've stayed in multiple locations along the gulf, and it is our favorite. Such a nice little community with everything (fitness center, grocery store, bike rental) conveniently located. We are already talking about returning next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are glad that everyone enjoyed a Fall week at Generations. That little bit of "separation" even in a large Beach house is great for our family too. We love sharing Generations with other families and are grateful that it is your favorite vacation home.
