Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

'Two Stuffed Olives' was built in 2009 and is located in the Cottage District of Carillon Beach. It is just steps away from the sugar white sand and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Powell. Situated in a private gated community, Two Stuffed Olives is the perfect vacation place for family and friends. This 2,700 sq ft home offers three levels of spacious accommodations and sleeps 10-12. A great choice for weddings or vacations as we typically rent Sunday to Sunday for summer but we will try to accommodate Sat-Sat rentals depending on availability during other seasons. It is approximately 1000 ft. from the beach walkover (an easy 3 minute walk) and is a few houses from the tennis courts, playground, park, and heated pool located off Cottage Court (behind Parkshore Drive). Two additional pools (one beachside) are nearby inside Carillon's secure gates.

This home has all the extras you are looking for. Flat screen TVs, BlueRay DVDs, 12 ft ceilings on each floor, beautiful heart of pine hardwood floors throughout (perfect for pets and children), granite countertops, travertine stone in all baths, high-end fixtures and appliances - including a standalone ice maker to keep your cooler full for trips to the beach and pool. We also provide four beach lounge chairs complete with cushions and umbrellas set up by Ed's Beach Service daily from March 1st - October 15th as part of your rental - so no lugging chairs the beach.

The first floor offers living/dining room, well-equipped kitchen, and has a queen bed and full bath. The table on the first floor seats 6 and their are 4 additional bar stools for dining. The second floor has the master bedroom with king bed and in-suite bath complete with jetted whirlpool tub with adjoining shower, double sinks, and a beautiful balcony. A third bedroom complete with two sets of bunk beds and private bath for the kids is located on the second floor next to the washer/dryer closet. The third floor features a fourth bedroom with a queen bed, full bath and amazing entertainment room complete with wet bar (microwave, ice maker, mini fridge and coffee maker too). An additional table that seats 6 and 3 more bar stools add to dining and game playing options. All bedrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor have private balconies and the 3rd floor balcony (lanai) is approx 200 sq feet and has Gulf views. The 3rd floor bedroom balcony also has views of the Gulf and Lake Powell. We also have a Pack 'N Play so you don't need to bring one to the beach for the little ones. The house includes cable TV and secure WIFI and printer in case you need to keep in touch or do a little work while visiting the beach.

Carillon Beach, located just east of 30-A is known for its parks, promenades, dune walkovers and pavilions. The community blends innovative coastal architecture and urban-planning traditions. The centerpiece of the 104-acre walking and biking community is the Carillon Bell Tower housing 35 bells. Sidewalks and footpath system are easy for families and friends to enjoy the amenities of the beach. Carillon also has a 'downtown' market area that includes restaurants, bike rentals, shopping, fitness center and a spa. During the summer make sure you join in for live music at 'Groovin' on the Green' weekly throughout the summer.

Immediately outside of the 24-hour Carillon guard gate is a Publix, Winn Dixie and CVS Pharmacy for all of your needs. Even a Waffle House if you want breakfast fast. Kids can ride their bikes and parents can know they are safe inside the property. Pier Park is 15 minutes away with a large movie theater, shopping (Target, Dillards) and many restaurants like Margaritaville, Tootsies, Five Guys, Cold Stone Creamery, Red Robin, Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse, to name a few. A new Fresh Market Grocery store and Dick's sporting goods are available if you need a few items you left at home.

We hope your time at Two Stuffed Olives will be filled with relaxing sunsets, cool drinks, wonderful memories, and sand between your toes. We know you will want to come back every year so don't miss your chance to book today. Dates are booking fast so contact us today!

About The Owner

Carillon has always been a special place for my family. Two Stuffed Olives became a reality in December 2010 just after being completed in 2009. In fact, its Moxie and Sundae's second home (yes that is them in the picture)! We can't wait to share our favorite spot with you too. As you can see with two dogs it was important to have a house that accommodates pets, beach family vacations, as well as folks attending weddings in Carillon with Sunday to Sunday rentals. We hope you'll enjoy all that Carillon has to offer and you'll want to keep coming back too! JB, Moxie and Sundae, Dunwoody, GA.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

We love how Carillon Beach is its own little world. Once you enter the 24-hour guard gate, you have access to everything you need - 3 pools, playground, tennis courts, basketball courts and of course our amazing sugar white sand beaches. Getting married in Carillon was amazing and we hope you will love it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We enjoyed the nearly private beach; the boys loved the new basketball court and the fully stocked kitchen made cooking family meals a breeze! JB, you made our last minute booking a cinch! Thanks so much!

Wonderful Spot for Our First Big Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say tell you how much we enjoyed our time at TSO! The family had a great week and all very much enjoyed their extended time at the beach. The proximity to the beach was perfect and there was more than enough room for everyone to have plenty of space, especially for the one rainy day when we all just hung out and listened to the raindrops...all in all very relaxing.

The house was in great condition and provided everything we needed! Thank you JB! I don't know what our plans may be for next year, but we will definitely plan to come back at some point in the future.

Again & again we keep coming back to TSO!! We love your house! There is nothing we could ask for! The owners have taken so much pride in this house! It was our 3rd time staying here! We enjoyed everything from a fully stocked kitchen to the beach towels that are provided! The outdoor space is wonderful! So many options to pick from, but if you go to the beach 🏖? then relax on 1 of the 4 beach chairs that come with the rental!!

Wonderful Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (along with our yorkiepoo Bonnie) have just returned from a wonderful stay at Two Stuffed Olives. We were here for six weeks and the time absolutely flew by. I can honestly say Two Stuffed Olives is the best winter getaway you could ask for! The house is absolutely equipped to provide for a number of guests comfortably with four bedrooms and four baths. We had a great time entertaining numerous family and friends who came by for visits and everyone was very complimentary of the accommodations. This home has the best video and book collection we have ever seen!

The owner, JB, and property manager, Helen, were amazing! If there was a question or need, it was answered immediately. Fortunately we had very few needs, even the weather was absolutely beautiful! We totally enjoyed the four beach chairs with umbrellas that were provided starting March 1st.

Carillon Beach is a beautiful gated community that should please all ages. If you tire of the beach, tennis courts, pools, etc., there are plenty of activities in the area including great restaurants on the beach where you can enjoy good food and sunsets!

We will absolutely return to Two Stuffed Olives!

Beautiful Property, and Very Well Managed

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at five other rental properties in the Carillon Beach development, I can absolutely say that Two Stuffed Olives is one of the best places to stay in Carillon. We have stayed at Two Stuffed Olives the last two years (and have been coming to Carillon about ten years) and each time the stay at Two Stuffed Olives was great. JB is a pleasure to work with and Helen, the property manager, is very responsive in the event we had a question or needed anything.

Each time, the property was clean and available prior to the check-in time. The house is large, well stocked and furnished, and really more house than we need (even with my teenage son bringing three of his friends) but JB and Carl are kind enough to open their home to the furry babies as well. If you are considering whether to bring the family dog with you, I would encourage you to do so. I would absolutely recommend Two Stuffed Olives to anyone.

My family stayed here for a week during the month of July. We had a great time! It was very comfy, spacious and accommodating. The owners were great to work with! Helen, the property manager, was so helpful when I had a small problem with the alarm system. She was quick to respond and very helpful. I loved having our own chairs and umbrellas on the beach, a very nice perk. This is my third stay in Carillon Beach and I think this is my favorite place! I think that this will be our family vacation spot for many years to come! Oh yes, our little dogs loved it too!

Truly wonderful vacation home with great owners

  • 5 of 5

My now-wife and I were fortunate to stay for a week at Two Stuffed Olives in May. We were getting married in the Carillon community, and had rented TSO, along with two other properties, for our closest family and friends.

Two Stuffed Olives was by far the best of the three properties we rented. Our other vacationers repeatedly expressed their jealousy that we got to stay in TSO's spacious, three-story accommodations. The house managed to be cozy and intimate, while simultaneously affording folks the opportunity to retreat to their own spaces as well. I especially enjoyed staying on the third floor, which had its own bedroom, kitchen, and living room, and so was largely self-sufficient. The first floor also had a bedroom, kitchen, and living space, while the second floor included laundry facilities and the two largest bedrooms.

JB and Carl were a delight to work with. They were always very responsive and helpful, and truly wanted us to have a great experience. They themselves had gotten married at Carillon, and knowing we were about to do the same, there was a bottle of champagne and a card with well-wishes waiting for us upon our arrival--just one example of their attentiveness and willingness to go above and beyond. The other two properties we rented were managed by a rental company, and we received significantly worse service from them.

TSO is also a great option if you have a pet you'd like to bring with you. My sister wanted to bring her dog, and we initially struggled to find a place in the community that both accepted pets and was adequate for our needs. But she was able to bring her dog to TSO without any additional hassle--and the house was *more* than adequate for our needs.

The community is also wonderful, with the beach, pools, and other shared amenities within easy walking distance.

I'm not sure when we'll have the opportunity to go back with such a large group. But TSO will always have a special place in our hearts for contributing so wonderfully to our wedding week, and it will be the first place we check for availability in the Panama City Beach area. We can say without reservation that no matter your occasion for going to Carillon, you'll neither regret nor forget staying in this excellent home with great service.
