About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom with views of the beautiful Gulf from Tower and Balcony

This relaxing and fun Carillon Beach Main House with cottage has been totally remodeled! The spacious interior features an expanded and renovated kitchen, all new furnishings, 3 new king mattresses, 1 new full mattress, 2 new twin mattresses, 5 new flat screen TVs, new rug, new art, new outdoor furniture, and fresh paint in both the main house and cottage. You may note that The Next Generation has similar but at the same time a unique relaxing casual design with a touch of sophistication like our Beachfront Carillon Beach home, Generations (VRBO 297087).

The Next Generation Beach House is only 64 steps from the private Carillon Beach walkover that takes you over the protected coastal sea oats to the sugar white sand beaches of the Gulf. Lounge in the 4 beach chairs with umbrellas provided for all guests from March until mid October. Relax in the private pool and spa situated between the main house and cottage or in one of three Carillon Beach Community pools.

The main house has 2 upstairs bedrooms, each with king beds and private baths. A sleeper sofa in the Living Area provides a bed for 2 others. On the first floor in the main house is the newly remodeled kitchen, living room/den, dining room, and half bath. There is a separate staircase to the tower that boasts a view of the Gulf. The upstairs balcony and the downstairs screened front porch span the entire width of the house making both great outdoor rooms for enjoying morning coffee and visiting with family and friends.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms with a shared bath. One bedroom has a king bed and the bunk room features a twin over full bunk bed. There is a mini frig, coffee maker and microwave in the cottage. The front porch of the cottage overlooks the pool, spa and surrounding patio.

There is something about a Beach vacation that allows the relaxation and renewed energy captured while there seem to last longer.

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.

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!

Best Vacation ever 2017

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the perfect house for our family! All the family enjoyed the pool and spa! We loved the screened porch it rained several days and it was perfect for enjoying the rainy days and for eating lunch! The house was beautifully decorated. Thank you so much Pat and Ken! Also a special Thank you to Helen she was so helpful. The house was also ready early and that was great since it had been a long drive. Thank you again for a perfect vacation for these grandparents to spend quality time with our three daughters and son n laws and all of our grandchildren. The older grandsons also enjoyed fishing in Lake Carillon and the ocean they caught several catfish. Also my husband loved the beauty of the bell tower! We will definitely book again. Thanks again from Stan and Laura Cotner, THE Terry's, The Hurst's, and The Smith's
