About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Bikini Bottoms provides an unique, fun filled beach experience like none other!

Designed by world renowned Dungan/Nequette Architects and showcased in Southern Living magazine, Bikini Bottoms is sure to put a smile on every face. Just steps from the sugar-white sands of the Gulf Emerald Coast (beach access is at dune walkover #2), every inch is creatively utilized in this non-smoking, whimsical beach home. The inverted floor plan has both bedrooms on the main floor (each with full private bath) and a large attached screened porch to enjoy every moment of Carillon Beach. The master offers a queen bed while the guest bedroom has three twins. Upstairs, you will enjoy the beachy blues and greens of the living room and fully-equipped stainless steel kitchen. The living room offers one of three HDTV televisions, a CD/DVD player, games, books, and everything to make your beach stay memorable. Ocean views, spectacular sunsets and al fresco dining can be enjoyed from the oversized 2nd level sun deck off of the living room. Bikini Bottoms has also features a secluded garden, gas BBQ and over 600 sqft of deck/porch space for enjoyable outdoor living.

Bikini Bottoms is in a prime location less than 23 steps from almost one mile of sugar white sand at Carillon Beach. No need to tolerate the Seaside or Rosemary traffic or cross 30A to get to the beach when you have all of the privacy and security of Carillon with the conveniences of a vibrant resort gated community.

Carillon, located just beyond the east end of 30-A, is a gated community of single-family homes located within steps of Carillon Beach, Downtown Carillon (shops and restaurants), Lake Powell and bicycle paths that will take you along the adorable beach communities of Rosemary, Seaside, and Seagrove, and several state parks. There are plenty of amenities at Carillon; including three pools (one heated, one gulf front Beach Club), two tennis courts, kiddie pool, basketball/sport court, bicycle rental and, of course, plenty of beach front to enjoy. Enjoy live music Downtown at 'Grooving on the Green' during summer, or listen to the music of the Gulf right on your own porch. Beach chair service is included (March 1- October 15) for your pleasure which includes two chaise lounge chairs and a large beach umbrella. Pier Park, the Emerald's Coast newest desination shopping/theater/resturant complex, is just a 10 minute drive away. See Links below for more information. Getting to Bikini Bottoms is now even easier with the opening of our new airport, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP).

For the quick grocery trip, Publix and Winn Dixie are just a 1/4 mile away. For added convenience, a washer and dryer are also included.

And for those of you who must 'work' while on vacation, you will appreciate the recent addition of WiFi high-speed Internet service. NOTE: Please plan on using your mobile phones, as there is no land line phone service at “Bikini Bottoms”.

Why Jack Mandula chose Florida

The first time we saw Bikini Bottoms, my wife said to me "now that's what a beach home should look like, let's get it". It's bold, bright and every color that shouts out fun at the beach,we are glad to share our home and we hope it puts a smile on your face.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a perfect week at the beach. We loved the short walk to the beach and the charming community. We enjoyed all of our meals on the sun deck. Thanks so much.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Bikini Bottoms was a great place to stay during Spring Break for our family of 4. Bedrooms and bathrooms were great. And the kitchen included all the amenities that were needed for dining in. The upper deck and screened in porch were great as well. We would stay there again.

This was our first time staying in the community of Carillon Beach, and we loved it. Close to the beach. Great pools. Bike rentals. It was great. Highly recommended.

Awesome week

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful spring break week at Bikini Bottoms recently. We were steps from the beach which made our daily journeys there very convenient. The weather was spectacular. We really enjoyed the Carillon Beach community including the shops. Everyday included a long walk along the beach and through the community of wonderful homes. Shopping was very convenient as well, as we chose to eat several meals at "home". We used the guest guide book provided by the owners to pick out a couple of restaurants which turned out to be excellent choices. We drove into Panama City a couple of times for shopping and entertainment. The teenagers really like the shopping and environment along the Boardwalk. We definitely are looking forward to going back.
