Why Christine Tuton chose Carillon Beach Ph X

Jerry and I would vacation along the gulf coast each year and after many years we found Carillon Beach and never left. It is the most beautiful place we had seen on the gulf coast, with pastel houses and white picket fences. The houses weren’t packed in together, there were no busy roads to cross to get to the most gorgeous uncrowded beach. Kids were playing and riding their bikes in this picturesque gated community. We decided to purchase a home and looked around until we found Veranda Villa. We loved the wide porches for enjoying outdoor dining, the open bright layout and the highest cupola in Carillon so we can see everywhere. It stills seems magical to me whenever I drive down the road and start to see the colorful houses come into view, and I know we have found the perfect place.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite thing is being in the beautiful blue water of the gulf and relaxing on the beach.

Enjoying breakfast, cocktails and dinner on the porch.

Walking on the beach and around Carillon.

Dining at the great restaurants in the area.

Riding our golf cart when we're lazy or it's hot.

Relaxing on the porch with a good book.

Veranda Villa is Southern Charm at it’s finest!

Veranda Villa

Wow! What a great home in an charming neighborhood! The white picket fence led you into Veranda Villa which had such an awesome “homey” feel and was decorated so beautifully. Everything we needed was there! You could even walk up the three flights of stairs and walk around the “Widow’s Walk” for the perfect view of the ocean!! There was even a telescope in the sitting area.

The porches were a very inviting spot for morning and evening reading and listening to the charming Bell Tower that chimes on the hour and even plays songs. Having the golf cart made it easy to ride to ride around the neighborhood and get to the beach pool!

Right down the street was the private beach walkover to our beach chairs. The beach and water were absolutely gorgeous and the sunsets were nothing less than breathtaking!

This neighborhood is also close to lots of shopping and restaurants and even Pier Park.

As soon as you enter Carillon, with it’s white picket fences and quiet serenity, you almost feel as though you have stepped back in time to a slower pace of life. If quaint is your thing, this is the place for you!

Loved Viranda Villa Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Viranda Villa was a perfect vacation spot for our needs. In particular, i liked that it was in a gated community, only a half block golf cart ride or walk to the beach, and all the homes are beautiful. I felt safe and at peace with nature and my favorite place was sitting on the Viranda drinking my hot tea or drinking a glass of wine taking in the sounds of nature and enjoying the sound of the ocean and birds. I hardly left all week except to buy food. My son and his family come to the Villa every evening for dinner and we just hung out and relaxed. Christina was a hands on homeowner and I found her friendly and accommodating. Loved my week here with my husband and my birth Home -Florida. Nirvana.

Emerald Coast Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I echo the comments by Jennifer as we just stayed with two adult children and two parents for a long weekend and then my wife and I had the full week to celebrate our 25th anniversary! This brings back lots of memories as we had honeymooned in neighboring Pinnacle Port and remember riding bicycles through the Carillon Beach Neighborhood on the newly developed Streets. Veranda Villa was a perfect place to enjoy the white sand and beautiful coastal area. We can't wait to go back again next year and thanks for sharing your warm and comfy beach home with us again.

What a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week with my husband, parents, and two children. The home had plenty of room for all of us to stay comfortable. When the children were rowdy, and the adults wanted quiet time, we sent them up to the cupola room to read or watch videos. My parents and I spent many mornings and afternoons on the front porch. The beach is a very short walk away, and beach toys and towels are helpfully provided by the owners. The house is also conveniently located just two short blocks from the coffee and ice cream shop. One night a live band played on the green next to the coffee shop. We danced and had a great time. I highly recommend this home! And I'm so happy the owners allowed us to bring our Jack Russel with us. He also had a great time. :-)
