About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-12, Two Master Suites

'Lime in the Coconut' is a 3-story, 2700 sq. ft. upscale home in Carillon Beach, an exclusive gated community of single family homes in Northwest Florida, just two miles east of Rosemary Beach. Conveniently located next to the pool, playground and tennis courts and just a 2-minute walk to the beach, ‘Lime in the Coconut’ will soon become your new favorite place to stay at the beach. Comfortably sleeping 8-12 guests, this professionally designed 4-bedroom, 4.5 bath home is ideal for a two-family vacation, a family reunion, or a weekend getaway.

There are two master suites, and each bedroom features its own private bath with multi-function shower heads for ultimate relaxation. Furnishings are stylish, modern and comfortable. Kids will enjoy hanging out in the third floor 'Kid Cave' with built-in beds, 32' TV, DVD player and plenty of space for playing games.

Cooks will love the fully equipped, gourmet kitchen featuring GE Monogram stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and every culinary utensil you can think of.

Start your day with sugar white sand between your toes on the beach, noted as one of the TOP 10 beaches in the world, just a short 2 minute walk from the front door. Since Carillon is a beach-side, gated community, you and your family won’t need to cross 30A to get to the beach. Although ‘Lime in the Coconut’ is located next to the Bellview Park pool (heated year round), you’ll want to check out the Beach Club pool overlooking the beach. A third pool for swimming laps is located on the east side of the community on the other side of Lake Carillon, home to some of the biggest lily pads in Florida. End your day from the third floor deck as you watch the sun set with a unique view of the gulf.

Fun, relaxing times await you at ‘Lime in the Coconut.’ The built-in living room entertainment center holds a 55” HDTV, DVD player for when you want to catch a movie or watch your favorite team. Curl up with a book on the comfy swing while soaking in the gentle ocean breezes or enjoy an afternoon snack at the table and chairs on the covered porch. Listen to your favorite music with the multi-room sound system.

Your family and friends will love the privacy of four uniquely decorated bedroom suites, each featuring a private bath, flat screen TV and ceiling fan. The second floor Nautical suite is appointed with a private porch, luxury queen-sized bed and twin daybed, over sized walk-in shower, travertine tile and multi-function shower head. The second floor master suite features a king size bed, luxury linens and a natural stone bathroom with two sinks, multifunction shower head and a deep soak tub. Relax with a book, your morning coffee or a glass of sparkling wine from the private over-sized porch with comfortable Adirondack chairs. The bright Tidewater master suite on the third floor features a private, gulf-view porch, king size bed, double-vanity bathroom with shower. Finally, children will love the third floor ’Kid Cave’ featuring two queen beds and two twin beds and a window seat built into this uniquely designed space. A full bathroom with shower/tub is located in the hallway just outside the ‘Cave.’

Carillon Beach is situated just east of Florida’s scenic Highway 30A and Lake Powell, and is home to Downtown Carillon, a quaint area for shopping and dining within walking distance. Convenient bicycle paths will take you along the popular beach communities of Rosemary, Seacrest, Seaside, and Seagrove as well as several state parks. Carillon Beach has plenty of amenities including three pools, beach club, two tennis courts, a kiddie pool, basketball court, playground, bicycle rental and plenty of sand to enjoy. During summer months, enjoy the weekly farmer’s market and live music at 'Grooving on the Green'. Beach chair service is provided (March 15- October 15) for your pleasure which includes two chaise lounge chairs and a large beach umbrella. Pier Park, the Emerald's coast destination shopping/theater/restaurant complex is just a 10-minute drive east on US 98. Getting to ‘Lime in the Coconut’ is easier than ever with the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP), about 15 minutes from 'Lime in the Coconut.'

Pick up fresh groceries at Publix or Winn Dixie just across the street, or stop at CVS for any forgotten items. A washer and dryer are available for your convenience, and guests will need to provide their own detergent.

For those who need to stay connected to the office and/or social networking, you will appreciate the WiFi high-speed internet service available in the home. Note: please plan to use your mobile phones for calls, as there is no land line phone service at ‘Lime in the Coconut.’ Some cell phone carriers have better service than others.

Since ‘Lime in the Coconut’ will become your favorite place to stay, don’t miss your chance to make your reservation today! A $500 security deposit is required. Please note: Minimum age requirement to book this property is age 25 or older. Sorry - no pets or smoking allowed. A $225 cleaning fee and 12% FL sales tax is added to all rentals.

About Beth Johnson

I started coming to Carillon Beach in 2009 with my sister's family, owners of Bikini Bottoms, Far Far Away and Once Upon a Time - also located in Carillon. Over the years of coming with my son, I fell in love with this kid-friendly community and decided that it was time to invest in my own home. I am a professional interior designer in Atlanta, and I hope that my guests enjoy the thoughtful, comfortable furnishing selections I made for 'Lime in the Coconut.'

Beth Johnson purchased this house in 2013

Why Beth Johnson chose Laguna Beach

When this home became available, I knew it was perfect for me. This home was built by a builder who spared no expense to make this home durable and low-maintenance! The upscale feel and off-the-beaten-path location of this home provide a perfect venue to get away from hectic schedules and the general busy-ness of life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time at Lime in the Coconut! It is such a beautiful house and great for our three families. We always enjoy our stay at Carillon Beach, and staying at Lime in the Coconut this year made it even better. Love the theme! Thank you for designing such a beautiful home, especially the Kid Cave - such a great idea.

Beautiful house near the beach

Great layout for our 11 with 3 in- suites, and a kids cave, professionally decorated including a professional stove. All of this is a safe short walk to the beach. The owner was very accessible for all questions. In short a great place in a great place.

Loved the home, and loved the neighborhood. Two families with five boys made full use of the beach, basketball and tennis courts, and swimming pools. Would love to stay again!

Beautiful Home - Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of comfortable beds for our group! Kitchen was good to cook in. I wish there would have been a mop and better broom (clean freak) - we cook at home a lot:-). We had Alberto roll through so a lot of time in the house and we were comfortable. I would stay there again.

Great Spring Break Getaway

Lime In the Coconut was a great place to stay! Communication with the owner was easy and fast every time!! The house is very conveniently located to the entrance, a pool, and the beach. Amenities in the house were fine as well. I'd definitely stay there again!

Great Home in a Great Location -

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the property. The home was perfect for our group (my sister's family, my family, and our parents:6 adults and 5 kids). The bedroom set up and the "kids cave" were perfect. Everyone had their own space and it was very well appointed. The main level kitchen/living room worked out great for our group. The kitchen had everything we needed and was easy to cook in. The gas grill was a nice touch as well.

The home was located in perfect proximity to the pool (a two minute walk) and the beach was just a bit further (five minute walk).

Carillon Beach is a fantastic beach community. We loved checking out the different names of the houses. It's very close to 30-A without the congestion. It's also just a few minute drive to Panama City.

I would definitely stay in this home again. Thanks Beth, we had a great week!
