Disabled Vacationer Dream Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at this beautiful beach home was such a blessing. It was the first vacation home that the entire family could attend in many years. I am so thankful for Karen the property manager as she was the one who told me about this special home. Karen knew that my sister was handicapped and she sent me photos of how the baths and showers were designed for a handicapped individual. The owners went out of their way as well to make our visit work for both my sister and my 88 year mother. The home is layed out perfectly and everything is of top quality. We had the most wonderful time and this is my new favorite home in the best community in Florida. I highly recommend Karen Sandel the manager as she is by far the most professional , knowledgable and helpful that I have worked with. The memories made during our time at Sittin Purdy will be cherished.

Owner's Response: I am humbled and grateful for your review and kind words. I can hardly believe I have the privilege of both working and living in Carillon Beach. Managing a unique high-end beach home like Sittin' Purdy for great owners is fulfilling, but meeting and helping clients like you and your family create lasting memories is the greatest reward. I look forward to seeing you again soon at the beach.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation home. Four couples all got together and there was plenty of space for hanging out and relaxing. The house had everything you would need and was within easy walking distance to the beach. It is also close to golf and restaurants. All in all, it was just perfect.

The ideal home for weddings in Carillon

  • 5 of 5

Sittin' Purdy was our home base for my daughter's wedding at Carillon. The location could not have been more ideal. It is located right next door to the chapel called The Meeting House and the reception site called The Village Green, and steps away from The Lake House on Market Street where the after party took place. The home itself was stunning, both inside and out, and better stocked than any vacation rental I have ever stayed in. It was spacious enough for everyone to gather together, yet also designed for private spaces to retreat to. The owners have considered every detail for the comfort of their guests. We appreciated the attention to detail in the architecture and also in the interior design. The appliances were top of the line and the kitchen more than suited our gourmet chef. The rental agent, Karen, went out of her way to make us feel welcome and also kindly accommodated us after we had absentmindedly left several items behind. If you are considering Carillon for your wedding venue then you have chosen an idyllic setting and will not be disappointed. If you want to perfect your wedding weekend then rent Sittin' Purdy for you and your guests, or just come spoil yourself with a luxurious vacation and accommodations. For us it was a dream come true! Thank you to Karen and the owners for memories that will be etched in our hearts forever!

Perfect Holiday House!

  • 5 of 5

Our large, multi-generational (ages 5 - 71) family has been searching far and wide along the gulf coast for over a decade for the perfect holiday home and this is it! Stunningly designed, Sittin' Purdy not only offers gracious space for large families, but somehow balances serene elegance with coziness and a warm, positive vibe in every room. The kids loved the upstairs bunks and generous TV while the adults enjoyed card games and lively conversation in the kitchen and around the enormous dining room table. Our resident chefs raved about the kitchen and delighted in cooking up fresh seafood dishes. All the rooms and bathrooms are gorgeous and the quiet soaks in that amazing tub is a mom of small children's dream come true. Carillon is still our favorite community anywhere and we so enjoyed our bike rides, the heated pools and the vast, private beach. We also got some great competitive family basketball games going at the playground! While the house itself is the star of the show, I cannot overstate the overwhelming graciousness of the property manager, Karen Sandel. A VRBO snafu with another house almost wrecked our year-in-the-making vacation. Karen swooped in like a superhero to save the day and in the end, it might have been one of the best ever. We highly recommend this property and will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for posting your story. I have to say getting your call just days before Christmas and your family trip was heart-breaking. Fortunately I had a property available. Whew!
