Guestbook comments from the owner

We drove in after an early morning and bit of air travel into the beautiful Carillon gated lake and beach community. The house is amazing with a nice view of the lake in the front and a spectacular ocean view from the living room and up stairs master bedroom and balconies.

We chose Fairview Cottage for its access to the beach and to the pool next door, and it was everything we had hoped it would be, starting with the great support we received from Denise prior to actually reserving up to our walk in the door and calling to ensure we had everything we needed. We have two young boys (2 and 4) and were traveling with our parents. The house literally had everything we needed and all the comforts of home. Shopping is so near by we enjoyed a walk to get a few items. There were beach toys and balls and other toys that kept our boys entertained when we were not at the pool. We built sand sea animals with the buckets and shovels and tools at the house. There were water noodles and pool toys that got plenty of use and bikes for kids and adults that were frequently used as well. We cooked and ate all meals at the house and had every cooking item we could ever need including a charcoal grill which was used 7 nights in a row for vegetables, meats from the near by grocery store and fish from the suggested fish market within 10 to 15 minutes.

We enjoyed walks on the beach every day and walks within the village and community lake area as well as frequent walks to the very close state park. The house was furnished beautifully and comfortably slept the 4 adults and 2 children for the week. The balcony from the main living area was perfect for relaxing in the shade and getting our sunscreen on for hours of fun on the beach. Beach service chairs and umbrellas were used every day and we all enjoyed the warm outdoor shower each time we stepped off the beach.

We also used the beverage blender frequently and were pleased with the selection of drinks and mixers available at the near by grocery store or very close liquor stores. The location is great, within a bike ride of nearby Rosemary beach and shopping as well, but we did not find much to tempt us away from the house and beach and enjoyed every minute.

Wonderful family experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying in a house right on the beach at Carillon Beach, but our first time in Fairview Cottage. It is ideally located/situated (right on the beach and adjacent to the pool), and the home is in very good condition. It was clean and well appointed, and it was set up well for our two children (6 and 1). The owner is very nice and responsive. We look forward to (hopefully) staying here again next year!

Family vacation at Fairview Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at Fairview Cottage. It was perfect for our family of 6 (kids ages 11, 9, 5, 5). We vacation in the 30A area every year but this was our first time to stay right on the Gulf. The view from this home is breathtaking, literally steps from the beach. Most of the week we were either playing on the beach or relaxing on the porch listening to surf. We also enjoyed walking around the lake and playing tennis in the Carillon gated community. We are already looking forward to returning.

Great week at Fairview!

  • 5 of 5

What a great beach house! If you are considering, just book now! My family of 5 (wife and kids ages 5, 4, and 18 months) stayed at Fairview cottage in June 2017. It was perfect for our needs. Everything you need inside (plenty of room, great kitchen, nice TV, wonderful balcony facing the beach, full washer/dryer, grill, etc.), plus direct beach access, and within steps of a great pool. And Carillon Beach is a fabulous subdivision away from the crowds of 30A. The owner Denise is super nice and responsive to questions, but she is so organized we didn't have any! We would book again for sure.

Carillon was beautiful and our house being on beach was the best. We never had to leave. Definitely would recommend this house to anyone and plan to come back soon.

My wife and I and our three teens loved this house! We would definitely come back. The location can't be beat. You are just steps away from the sand, unlike many other homes in the Carillon Beach neighborhood. And it's nice to have the pool right next door. My kids loved the bikes that come with the home. They rode them around the neighborhood every day. Denise, the owner, is the best I've ever dealt with in all the years of us staying in vacation homes. She is very attentive to your needs.
