About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Dolphin Smiles at Carillon Beach. This custom, architectural beachside cottage home has been in the same family since it's birth in 1997. Imagine.......waking up to white sandy beaches coupled with the daunting task of deciding what gourmet restaurant to dine in, later that perfect day.

The master suite dominates nearly one half of the second floor. The private bath has dueling, coral blue vessel sinks and a large walk in rain head shower. The remaining second floor sleeping area offers a queen sized bedroom and adjacent third bedroom with duel twin bunks. All of the homes linens are clean crisp and white. Sunsets can't be missed atop your own private three story tower.

About mark coston

I'm currently a custom home builder/ designer. My passions include architecture, travel and my family. Decompressing in life is critical these days and what better place to relax.

mark coston purchased this house in 1997

Why mark coston chose Florida

Relative proximity to Atlanta and other major airports. I've traveled quite extensively and I've yet to discover more pristine beaches. Quiet beach area but never lacking in fun activities.

What makes this house unique

I personally love the outdoor shower and outside fireplace. Today's lifestyle is a subtle blur between indoor and outdoor living.

Wow! Best house we have rented so far in Carillon Beach.

  • 5 of 5

This home is adorable, comfortable, and worked well for our family of 4. The location near the beach walkover and the pool was amazingly convenient. Owner Mark was gracious and accommodating, not to mention helpful. He went out of his way to make sure our stay was comfortable. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and feel like we were at home. My daughter spent a lot of time in the hammock in the Crow's Nest...we watched a storm from up there too, very cool! Outdoor covered patio was private and perfect for having morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. We will definitely be back, thank you for another great vacation!

Owner's Response: I really enjoy managing/owning Dolphin Smiles and families like this make it all more worth while. They helped me, regarding a neighbor installing a pool adjacent to my property line and it was invaluable. I can only hope they return soon to relax and enjoy the Gulf Coast.

Beautiful Beachside retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin Smiles was the perfect location for our Girls Weekend!! The house was simply perfect....from the multiple bedrooms, the many bathrooms to the beautiful third story lookout that provided spectacular viewing of the thunderstorm coming off the gulf! The short walk to the beach made the location the BEST! The owner was awesome to work with and always answered my questions, even the silly ones, in a timely manner. We would stay at Dolphin Smiles again or would recommend to any beach traveler.

Beautiful House, Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family has enjoyed vacationing in different houses in Carillon for years, and Dolphin Smiles is definitely one of our favorites. The layout worked perfectly for our family of five. We loved the outdoor living areas. The location is right next to a pool and a beach walkover, which was great for the kids. The owner, Mark, was extremely nice. We give it a big thumbs up!
