About the property

House, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Do you need a romantic get away at the beach, or are you traveling with friends or family and would prefer your own private oasis? Welcome to Cloud Nine, the perfect luxury couples retreat!

Cloud Nine was designed by renowned Gulf Coast architecht Gary Justiss in 1998. It is a beautifully decorated home and has been immaculately maintained.

Upstairs at Cloud Nine, you will find an open and inviting living area. The living room offers comfortable and stylish furniture, which was just replaced for the 2017 season, a 40' flat screen HDTV, Comcast cable, premium sound system, DVD player, iPod docking station and a 200 disc CD player, already loaded with CDs. The house is wired with wi-fi and a color printer is available for your convenience. Off of the living room, you will find a beautiful covered balcony, surrounded by palm trees with a teak table and 4 chairs. Sitting on the balcony with the palms swaying, enjoying a meal or a drink, is one of the many highlights of Cloud Nine! The bedroom area offers a 32' flat screen HDTV and is also connected to the DVD player in the living area. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and everything you will need to be right at home. The bathroom features a beautiful, fully tiled shower. All linens are provided.

Downstairs, you will find a fully enclosed outdoor shower, which is wonderful when coming in from the beach. The water pressure in this shower is awesome and having an extra shower available to you is always handy. Adjoining the outdoor shower is the laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer and extra storage space for your clothes or other items.

In the front of the property, surrounded by palms and oleanders, you will find a beautiful pergola with a swing waiting for you!

At Cloud Nine, you are literally steps away from the Gulf! Two beach chairs and an umbrella are provided with your rental during the season (March 1 - Oct 15). Carillon Beach is a gated community and a beautiful and very special place. The architecture of the homes and common areas is second to none on the Gulf. Once you are inside, it's like being in your own little slice of heaven. There are NO public roads running through Carillon Beach. Unlike Rosemary Beach or SeaSide, there is no 30-A traffic or crowds to contend with. The beaches are beautiful, wide and not crowded. There are 3 pools available to you (one heated), including a Gulf front pool with a stunning view. Other ammenities include two tennis courts, kiddie pool, basketball court and a downtown area that hosts live music during the summer, movies on the green, a wine bar, sports bar with a casual restaurant, coffee shop, general store, bike rentals, non-denominational chapel and more.

Outside the gates of Carillon Beach, you will find Publix, Winn-Dixie, CVS and other necessities just a 1/4 mile away. Scenic 30-A is 1 mile to the west and offers many great restaurants, shopping, golf and other quaint beach communities. Getting to Cloud Nine is now easier than ever with the opening of our new airport, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) and the services of Delta and SouthWest, just a short 20 minute drive away.

You will love your time at Cloud Nine and at one of the world's most beautiful beaches and I hope you enjoy yourself at this beautiful little beach house as much as I do!

About The Owner

I am originally from Melbourne, FL but have lived in Atlanta since 1976. Even though I am an East Coast FL native, I have always loved coming to the Gulf Coast and built Cloud Nine about 15 years ago. I have loved each and every trip to Carillon Beach and am happy to be able to share my beach house with you!

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose Laguna Beach

I fell in love with the style, charm and architecture of Carillon Beach and have since become very good friends with so many great people who were also drawn to this special beach community.

What makes this house unique

One of the things I really appreciate about this area are the many dining choices. You can find fantastic high end restaurants and gourmet meals if that's what you're in the mood for, or you can find the best fried shrimp basket at the beach (The Sand Bar btw) and everything in between. Thomas' has the best donuts on the beach and if you need a great bottle of wine (at any price) go talk to Doc at Carousel. Add in the weather and the beautiful beaches and pools and what more do you really need?!

Wonderful Anniversary Vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing, perfect vacation look no further than Carillon Beach. Cloud Nine is the perfect home for a couple. My husband and I spent 4 days here and wish we could have spent 4 weeks. It is total perfection. The house was clean and pretty inside and all we needed for our beach vacation. Best part was it was located right by the beach. We could't have asked for a better location for the price. We were at the walkover in less than 2 minutes. The ocean is gorgeous and the community of Carillon is totally a dream! We rented bikes and had so much fun biking around the area. I loved sitting on the patio in the morning and evening at Cloud Nine and reading my book in the swing out front. The bed is comfy and bathroom was good size. Plenty of drawer space and room to hang our clothes. I loved having laundry room to wash all our dirty things so I didn't have to pack much and didn't have to return home from vacation to a pile of laundry haha! We also brought beach towels and washed them every day.

I can't say enough great things about Carillon and this property. We will definitely come back. Hopefully for years to come!

Awesome Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Cloud Nine was the Perfect retreat for our Mother/Daughter get away. Cloud Nine was immaculate and very accommodating. The bed was comfy and we enjoyed having wine or coffee out on the porch, which was surrounded by palm trees ~ very relaxing. The beach was really close - just a few steps to get to the dune cross over. We took advantage of washing our beach towels every night in the provided laundry room. We also loved washing the sand off of us in the outdoor shower. I highly recommend this unit. Rod was very attentive to any last minute needs. Thank you for all your hospitality.
