About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8-10) (Plus Sleeping Tower) Close To The Beach

Mellow Yellow is just a few steps to the beach - You can hear the ocean from the front porch, and you can see it from the tower! With large comfortable rooms and plenty of porches, this is the perfect vacation home for spending time together and also grabbing some quiet time for yourself. The gated Carillon community provides security and a friendly environment. Mellow Yellow's bright cheerful decor puts you in the right mindset for your special beach vacation. The home sleeps 8 to 10 (in beds). The kitchen is well equipped for eating in, and there's a gas grill outdoors. There are three community pools, tennis courts, a playground (with basketball court), Lake Carillon, green areas for the kids to run, pretty areas for walking, and more!

There is plenty to do, but you might decide to just split your time between rocking on the front porch listening to the carillon music down the street and relaxing on the absolutely beautiful beaches at Carillon!

About John or Sally Schrefer

For many years we have spent our family vacations in the Florida Panhandle. We love the Northwest Florida beaches and all the fun activities in the area.

John or Sally Schrefer purchased this house in 2001

Why John or Sally Schrefer chose Carillon Beach Ph X

Over the years we rented many different condos in the Panama City Beach area. Then one rainy afternoon we were driving around and discovered Carillon Beach. We fell in love with the community and homes there. We rented many different homes in Carillon and made note of the various features that would make a special vacation home. We worked with our architect and builder to incorporate those features into Mellow Yellow.

What makes this house unique

We were fortunate enough to have an architect who listened carefully to what we were looking for in a vacation home-- from the atrium living area and captain's hallway to the wonderful porches. Then he threw in his own touches like the the lighthouse stairway, curved loft area, and board and batten. Gary Justiss homes are special, and we were lucky enough to have him design ours.

Mellow Yellow -Kids Loved It.

  • 5 of 5

Mellow Yellow is perfect for multiple generation families staying together. Kids stay in the crows nest, grandparents in the master bedroom and other adults in the front bedroom (there is one more for those staying up late). The house is very close to the beach and is close to the main pool. The main room is fantastically spacious, and the kitchen and pantry is what you would want in your own home. We only brought two cars but i think one more would fit in the driveway and one more out front. All appliances were good quality, and they have a small gas grill outside. The climate control was amazing, and we saw why later....there are 2 AC units for this house. In short, it was a great place to stay.

Wonderful Week!

Easiest rental experience we've had in Carillon (4th house we have stayed in). Great location, comfortable, and a nice size. Sally was so nice and helpful.

My wife and I truly enjoyed our week at "Mellow Yellow". We have been coming to Carillon for about 17 years now and stayed in several properties. We have stayed in "Mellow Yellow" many times along with other places and really enjoy the beach house John and Sally have. It is a totally relaxing place to stay, with lots of room and several porches. Really nice sitting on a rocking chair in the morning on the front porch. They have all the amenities that you could ever want for your use and have thought of just about everything to make your vacation enjoyable. One of the great features is that the house is only 75 paces from the walkover to the beach, which makes it very nice. John and Sally were very easy to work with and made our trip great. Thanks for being such a nice host..

All you could ever want for a family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 enjoyed our stay at Mellow Yellow in late May 2017. The entire house was beautifully decorated inside and out. The house was immaculately clean and maintained. There were clear instructions as to how things worked like the sound system, garbage pick-up, where to find the bikes and beach chairs, etc. We found the kitchen to be well stocked with all equipment to prepare and serve any meal. The pantry was big with plenty of room to make a big grocery run and store enough food for more than a week. The bedrooms and baths were very nicely configured with space to put your clothes and toiletry items away without living out of your travel bags. Sally even called to make sure that all was well. It was a wonderful first beach trip for our 10 month old granddaughter. The rooms were all big enough to share with either of the 2 pack-n-play cribs waiting for us when we arrived. The downstairs master bedroom was so convenient to have the sleeping baby near in the evening as the rest of the family spent time in the living room. The design of the home worked so well for our family. We look forward to coming back again and again.

Great vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Mellow Yellow is in a great location in Carillon. It is very close to the walkover to the beach. The house is lovely and large enough for our family trip of 9 people. The grill, bikes, and beach chairs were used by us and enjoyed. The supplies in the kitchen were great. The dishwasher worked well but could use an upgrade to a newer appliance. We had a great trip.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thanks for your review of Mellow Yellow, and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Just wanted to let you know that we listen....We have just installed a new dishwasher (very quiet), new cooktop, oven, sink, faucet, garbage disposal, and countertops in the kitchen.....among a few other updates. Two brand new bicycles, too. Best wishes! Sally
