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 2014

Why Ken Ross chose Florida

When we first saw Celebration Generation Beach House we were immediately stunned by the large wrap around porch and balcony on the Gulf side. Inside is a large 5 bedroom 5 bath home extremely close to the Beach. We fell in love with it and the location.

What makes this house unique

One of the unique things about this Beach home is that it is all in one structure with no Guest Cottages or other dwellings that might cause tension among family members.

Beautiful and could be perfect... if...

  • 3 of 5

We loved this house. We have stayed at Carillon every year for 18 years and this is one of the prettiest and roomiest houses we have stayed in. We were very excited when we arrived to see how perfect it fit our family and the space it had. Beautiful windows in kitchen made us want to never eat out. It was beautifully decorated and could be in a magazine.

The only reason it doesn't get a perfect score is because of the problem with roaches. There were 6 dead roaches in kitchen when we opened the door to enter and we had hoped it somehow was an oversight by cleaning crew. We also noticed upon arriving, a very strong smell of insecticide but upon wishful thinking we discussed it could possibly be a cleaner smell of some sort.

But we quickly saw, especially in the only downstairs bathroom, that this smell and the evidence of roaches was a huge problem when we saw the evidence on the white towels under sink... as well as the crawling bugs in drawers and floor.

The first 2 days we had to remove our items from this bathroom and stop using it. We called the wonderful manager who quickly came over and cleaned bathroom and replaced towels and apologized. On the 4th day of our trip the pest control came to spray the outside because the owners didn't want it sprayed inside. I understand the reasons sometimes with little children , it may be worrisome... but this is a definite issue that needs to be addressed. But we have stayed in many houses and this Is the first time we have ever encountered this issue.

Several crawled on the floors while we watched tv and always were in the bathroom the entire week. It did diminish our enjoyment for the week after paying so much to stay here, but if this can be corrected , it is a perfect house.

Owner's Response: We're glad that you loved Celebration Generation. Thanks for bringing the dead bugs to the manager's attention. We again apologize for your having to deal with them. We've taken action to correct the challenges you experienced. The manager did call the exterminator as soon as she was informed of it. After she promptly cleaned the inside area she followed up daily with the exterminator. We have addressed the belated response by the exterminator which is inexcusable. Hopefully the new exterminator will be more responsive. Please accept our heartfelt apology!

Beautiful home so close to the beach ! I walked across the street to the beach daily.

  • 5 of 5

Wow great home we loved it like it was our own ! Great porches, showers , parking was easy next to the back door.Huge kitchen for those family talks while eating lunch and fixing breakfast . Was not impressed with the Lake side diner small menu and terrible service,but the Hub just a few miles away on highway 30 a west off 98 was a blast food , ice cream , bands larger 25 foot tv for sports and movies for kids check it out online! We also liked the close shopping at two grocery stores and cvs across from the property ,Dunkin donuts , gas, car wash all within a mile .The beach was under restoration while we were there it looks to be a huge job to pump sand back to the beach quite a operation to see! We also enjoyed the state park close by just down the beach. Everything you need is at this home except beach towels. Toys for kids and beach chairs in shed and also-wave boards so all you need to do is come and have Fun !!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We're glad you loved Celebration Generation Beach House! The Beach restoration project was completed in April and the already large Beach is now almost double the size it was! We do remind our guests to bring Beach towels. Our laundry service doesn't want to take a chance on sand inadvertantly in with the rest of the linens and towels, so there is a full sized washer and dryer provided for our guests.

Wonderful Stay for First-timers in Rosemary Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Rosemary Beach, FL. This home was perfect! The decor is beautiful and the floor plan works well for families. The King beds were so comfortable and the room for children with 4 twin beds could also be used for teenagers or adults. The open floor plan worked well for family time. We cooked many meals there and loved the arrangement. It worked out perfectly. We plan on coming back! The owner is very easy to work with. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are glad you enjoyed Celebration Generation Beach House! This Beach House is such a favorite with large families because even though it is one large house, the 5 bedrooms (4 Kings) are their own private spaces. The 2 large living areas also give adults and kids "their" own living areas.

A great family gathering place

  • 5 of 5

we are a family of 11. Grampa, Gramma, Son family of 5, daughter family of 4. This house gave all the married couples a bedroom on the second floor with very own personal bathrooms. The 4 younger children took the 3rd floor bunk area with a great play room complete with TV and Wii. Our oldest granddaughter(a teenager), ready for her own room, got the bedroom on first floor with the bath in hall. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen table was a great place for our whole family to squeeze together. The living area was big enough for us all to sit and have family time. Nice gas grill on back porch. Love the porches on back and front of the house. Beach access across the street very convenient for us all. Easy walk to the pool and basketball and tennis courts. Thanks for a great place to gather our family together. Highly recommend Celebration Generation Beach house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. We are so glad that you had a great family time and enjoyed your stay at Celebration Generation! Thanks for mentioning the porches! We especially love to sit out on the front porch and people watch. It really does extend the living and dining area and creates a relaxing venue for vacationers.

A lovely, well cared for property.

  • 5 of 5

Four Army veterans who first saw the beautiful white sands of Santa Rosa Island in 1962 while attacking it during Ranger School at nearby Eglin Air Force Base sought a place to bring our wives and have a reunion. Celebration Generation Beach House proved to be the perfect solution. The home was loaded with amenities and comfortable furniture that allowed for hours of pleasant conversation to review old memories as we made new ones.
