About Ken Ross

When our kids were growing up, we often vacationed in Destin and Ft. Walton and loved the area. We fell in love with, some say, the best kept secret in Florida, Carillon Beach, and find ourselves wanting to be at the Beach as much as possible. When we can't be there, we love sharing Celebration Generation with others to enjoy.

Ken Ross purchased this house in 2012

Why Ken Ross chose Carillon Beach Ph X

The we first saw The Next Generation we were impressed with the large living area and the screened in front porch. We just loved the idea of being able to sit on the porch while reading, drinking coffee and visiting with family and friends. We also realized how our grandkids would love the pool after a day at the beach.

Wonderful Beach Memories at a Delightful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family has enjoyed Next Generation two years in a row and have enjoyed each week we have stayed. Your home is inviting and warm in décor. We enjoy the floor plan, the pool and the guest house attached. You do a wonderful job of equipping the kitchen to get us started each week.The walk to the beach is short and you have beach chairs and many amenities to go along with beach and pool fun. We enjoy the location of the house as it is close to all three pools and the tennis courts. We feel very safe there with our children and grandchildren, and the people we have met have been very helpful and personable. We have suggested Carillon Beach to others and plan to make another year of memories at Next Generation. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home and helping our family enjoy a summer vacation.

Loved everything about the house. Very short walk to the beach. The neighborhood overall is very peaceful. Owners are very responsive and accommodating. I have zero complaints.

Greatest yet

  • 5 of 5

Next generation is a spectacular place to stay warm or cold weather. The proximity to the beach the private pool the three king bedrooms and all the amenities are amazing. IMy family and I have been traveling to the golf coast since 1995 and have stayed in dozens of houses at separate locales. I can say with great confidence this is by far the most superior place we have stayed.

Great Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home and guest house to make our vacation so enjoyable. Having the separate guest house really worked well for our family. The layout of the main house was really nice with great furnishings and updated appliances. The short walk to the beach walkover was ideal. Having a private pool and hot tub was also a plus! The owners have always been great to work with and we have rented one of their other homes as well. The property manager Helen, was great and answered all of our questions.

We will be back!

Since 2006, a fall trip to Carillon Beach is a must! This year we stayed at the beautiful Next Generation. Ken says bring your beach towels, flashlights, and sunscreen. Believe me, this house has everything you need. The grandchildren (10, 14, 17) enjoyed having their own pool. We definitely used the gas grill, and the kitchen had everything we needed. This has now become one of our favorite houses. Carillon Beach is paradise, and Next Generation is the place to enjoy it!

This home is gorgeous and met every need we had for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Carillon for 4th of July was amazing with these accommodations! From having the option of pool, hot tub or ocean, our crew had all their needs met! The 4 ocean chairs were so convenient, and the guest house gave privacy for a multi family trip. We LOVE this house and can't wait to return next summer!
