Have you ever dreamed of a place where there was peace and serenity? Where living was not a struggle but a lasting delight? Of course you have...so has everyone since time began. Sometimes it is called Utopia.
We call it Shangri-la (Lost Horizon, 1933).
Imagine the moment you arrive...your eyes focus on the emerald green waters of the Gulf...now you are standing on your own private dune walkover just steps from the pristine sugar white sand...you breathe in the salt air and feel the Gulf breeze. Whatever worldly concerns you brought with you simply wash away with the ocean waves.
WELCOME TO SHANGRI-LA, our beach home and one we proudly share with you. Built into a beautiful sand dune, rich with sea oats, Shangri-la is a 3-story, 40 foot tall, sky blue 'sand castle.' Tucked in behind it is a white picket-fenced courtyard with our 2-story guest house, La-ti-da. This courtyard is completely closed off and is an excellent area for young children or pets to play. And yes, we are PET FRIENDLY.
Both inside and out, Shangri-la and La-ti-da, some 4,000 square feet, are professionally designed and decorated, employing color and space to be both beautiful and functional. Large enough to accommodate between 10 to 14 guests(depending on the mix of adults and children), our 6 bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms and common areas allow for flexibility with sleeping arrangements.
Believe it or not....there are two 12' long teakwood suspended bridges spanning the second and third floors...amazing to see...a truly one-of-a-kind experience. You will not find another vacation home like Shangri-la.

On the Beach
We found the location and home to be comfortable for our family. Being on the beach was the most important and this home is as close as it gets. We loved it and will return again.
K, we're so glad you enjoyed our home on the beach! We'll welcome you back anytime.
We had a great time!
The house was as described and the location was perfect! It was very clean. I was a little concerned about it being pet friendly but I didnt see any trace of a pet:) We had a great time!
Great House, Best view!
The whole experience was very special, and allowing dogs just made it that much better. To wake up and watch the sunrise right on the beach was awesome as well as the spectacular sunsets. We hated to leave. I would encourage the owner to provide basic amenities, however. Perhaps toilet paper in every bathroom, dishwashing liquid, and perhaps shampoo and conditioner. Just a starter amount. All in all, I would book this house again. You never really need to leave, because the house and it's location are all you really need. Well maybe that and a good book(which they have plenty of).
I'm so sorry you were not supplied with toilet paper or dishwashing liquid! These items, plus paper towels, are usually provided. Shampoo & conditioner are not provided since most people have specific products for their kind of hair.
I'm glad that you loved our home & its location! Please come back & give us another chance with the amenities.
Shangri-LA lives up to it's name!
What an amazing experience we had with our stay at Shangri-La/Carillon Beach! The house was incredible and the location just a few steps away on your own private boardwalk! Sunsets that are just beautiful, crystal clear water, and per our kids..."This was the best trip we've had to the beach!". How often do you get 4 teenagers to say that LOL! In simple terms, anyone staying here will not be disappointed.
Thank you to the Shangri-La owners again for putting this house on VRBO!
Blessings from the Weavers of Texas
Thanks so much!!! We're so happy that you enjoyed our home as much as we do.
Please stay in touch!
