Property description

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 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.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1997

About: 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.

Why Carillon Beach, Laguna Beach, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I personally love the outdoor shower and outside fireplace. Today's lifestyle is a subtle blur between indoor and outdoor living.
