About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

It has been a pleasure to be an owner of A Little More Fun since 2004 and offer it as a vacation rental. Co-owners live and work in the area and are easily available. For personal assistance, please click the "Send Email" button with questions. The calendar is up to date.

My Favorite Features: No stairs, backyard pool and the Gulf of Mexico about a minute away. Dune Walkover #2 reveals the magical view where the sand meets the sea.

Abundant windows, ten-foot ceilings and hardwood floors are throughout. It's refreshing to smell the salt air and feel the sea breezes on the front porch swing or the comfortable outdoor seating overlooking the pool.

Two bedrooms have queen beds; third bedroom has bunk beds. Each bedroom has its private bath and TV. Master bedroom has access to the outdoor, private shower with hot and cold water and complete privacy. Master bedroom also has porch access overlooking the backyard pool.

In season Beach Chair Service is included. Landline has Free Long Distance within United States.

Carillon Beach is a quiet, upscale, gated, BEACHSIDE village. A favorite walk is along the oak canopied promenade to 'old town' area which includes a chapel nestled in the trees by Lake Carillon.

Paved roads and sidewalks create a safe place for children to ride bikes and walk to activities. In addition to our own pool, Carillon Beach has a large, gulf-side pool, HEATED east-side pool, and west-side pool. Tennis courts, basketball court, water sports on the lake and a children's playground offer other activities.

When you are searching for a well-kept, safe, relaxing vacation spot with a gorgeous white-sand beach, this is it.

Our home is SMOKEFREE, NO PETS ALLOWED with an Age Restriction. Reservations not accepted for vacationing students or singles under the age of 25 unless accompanied by a legal guardian or parent during entire stay. Chaperoned groups are not accepted. Restrictions apply regarding number of people a parent or legal guardian may accompany.

About Joyce Miller

It has been asked how someone in Colorado owns in Carillon Beach. Here is the story. My sister and husband are co-owners and live in the area. The three of us grew up in Panama City. My husband was career USAF and last assignment before retiring was in Aurora, Colorado. Over the years we lived near and/or vacationed at numerous well known beach areas. It became obvious that none compared with the beautiful Panama City Beach where we had grown up. The Carillon Beach community is a visual delight and it is a privilege to be part of it.

Joyce Miller purchased this house in 2004

Why Joyce Miller chose Laguna Beach

A Little More Fun is in a quiet location, with no stairs to climb, a quick walk to the beach and beautiful backyard pool. We loved having three baths including one with indoor/outdoor shower access. The spacious front porch with swing and backyard seating around pool are inviting spots to recharge and relax. Carillon Beach has strong appeal to us as a respite from an increasingly hectic world.

What makes this house unique

The co-owners have remained close to the home turf and do a great job overseeing A Little More Fun. Bobby is the nice guy in the Carillon Beach Real Estate office. (If you are interested in buying a beach property, he will be happy to help.) Martha is the friendly voice who can suggest ideas of things to do, where to eat or shop. She has an extensive Rolodex and the one to contact should you have an issue or question about the home. You will find having them nearby a unique benefit.

Lovely home with pool, very close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. Two minute walk to the glorious beach, with our own pool for relaxing in the afternoon. The front porch swing was 1950’s heaven. Close to all sorts of interesting restaurants and beach towns. The locals were so friendly, inviting us for the ritual sunset viewing every evening as they walked by! Oh, and the weather was perfect.

It was wonderful! The hosts were always available & touched base! (like that)

The walk out shower was GREAT at night as I could hear the crazy frogs singing harmoniously!

Pool was nice to have on our own in peace!

My family and I, 5 people total, enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. We enjoyed the use of the private pool and the close proximity of the beach access. The Carillon community was so nice and offered wonderful amenities. Would love to stay here again and again!

Quaint home in perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This house is in the perfect location at Carillon Beach. Easy access to the beach and all amenities, and the private pool is an added bonus for sure. The owners are a joy to work with, and we will definitely return.

Comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

A Little More Fun was comfortable and very close to the beach walkover. We had everything we needed, and the owners went out of their way to make sure everything was right. We have stayed in five different houses, and this was one of our favorites!
