The master also has doors opening to a porch above the entrance overlooking the promenade.

The Florida Panhandle white beaches of the gulf coast are a short 5 minute walk away. You can access the beach by sidewalks or via alleys that run between Florida’s most beautiful beach homes. All the while you are in the security of the well maintained private village of Carillon beach, heaven on earth.

Apart from the beach, enjoy tennis courts across the street and the heated pool just beyond. Carillon beach provides many amenities including but not limited to three pools, Bellview Park, tennis courts, basketball court, Lake Powell, the Pier on Lake Carillon, and much more.

We had a great family vacation at Carillon, as usual.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice and renting was easy. Owner's directions were concise, accurate, and easy to follow. Accommodations were adequate for our group. However, should be noted that first floor bedroom is quite small. It does sleep three with bunk beds and trundle. Our three were college age girls so it was a little cramped for them but there were few complaints. Major complaint was that TVs in bedrooms did not have cable. This house is plenty nice and provides a comfortable stay near pools, tennis, park, and a short walk to the beach. The community of Carillon is always welcoming. Life Is Good at Carillon!!!!

There is a neighborhood cat that lives on the porch. We named him FlufferNutter.

Loved the home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at "Life is Good" and we really loved it. I took my entire family as usual each of them said they liked the place and want to go back next summer. The home was well decorated and had everything we needed for our stay. The location was an easy short walk to the beach with a pool next door. Great place to spend a vacation week at the beach.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house gave our family of six a peaceful, relaxation that we all needed. The house is a short walk to the beach and the village. Being next door to the tennis courts and basketball court was perfect for our kids! The house was the perfect spot for us. We will be back!

We were fortunate to spend a month in this lovely home and it turned out to be a perfect choice for us. The bedrooms are so spacious that it took us a minute to figure out which one was the master! The entire house is impeccably clean. Truly, the photos do not do this home justice. It is charming, tasteful, sunny and the location is perfect!

Our family spent the holidays at Carillon Beach , and Life is Good was the perfect house for us! Very clean, and the location right beside the heated pool and playground was a huge plus!! The owners were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely rent this home again!
