Two, If By Sea, a beautiful Florida style cottage designed by architect Gary Justice, is about 500 feet from Beach Walk Over #1 and the white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. This cottage is loaded with charm and amenities throughout. Beadboard, whitewashed floors, and double swings on the big front porch are the setting for the quintessential southern vacation. The two bedrooms upstairs are outfitted with queen sized beds, built-in televisions, have their own baths, and both open onto a quaint balcony that overlooks the heavily landscaped front yard. Downstairs, an open living/kitchen concept is furnished in a casual coastal style with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. The half bath off of the kitchen is an eye-catcher with blue glass tile floor and is fitted with a galvanized bucket for a sink. This bathroom opens into an outdoor private shower, good for rinsing away the day's sand or showering beneath the stars. Two, If By Sea has a beautiful yard with a white picket fence. The pergola at the front entrance to the property houses a quaint turquoise picnic table, perfect for a morning cup of coffee. If you want to go exploring and leave the car at the cottage, request the two beach cruiser style bikes and travel about in old-fashion style.


Carillon Beach is our home away from home. We love to go and really and truly get away from it all. It feels secluded and yet it is less than 10 miles from the bustling Pier Park in Panama City Beach and 2 miles from the storied 30a corridor, home to Rosemary Beach and Seaside. The community of Carillon has its own Market Street featuring shopping, dining, a fitness center, spa, and yoga studio. There are regular concerts and movies on the green during the summer months. Two, If By Sea guests have access to 3 swimming pools (one on the beach and two that are heated), tennis courts, a basketball court, a newly renovated playground, 8 beach walkovers, it's all here.
Whether you are looking for a romantic retreat, a home-base for an action packed vacation, or a place to relax and restore, look no further than
'Two, If By Sea'.


Comments from renters:

We've stayed in several houses in Carillon and 'Two, If By Sea' is now our favorite! We loved the front porch swings; the decor in all of the rooms, the personal touches! The flat screen tv was a big hit too! What a great house! Thank you! We sure hope to stay at Two, If By Sea again!'

The Ellis family

'We fell in love with Two If By Sea. After everyday, we would come back to this wonderful house and relax. We shared many laughs on the front porch. Thank you for allowing us to share your home.'
Thank you for the blessing of this house!'

The Lutts family

Owner info

About the owner: Our family has lived on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida for over 30 years. Several years ago we found a place at Carillon Beach. It was a quiet slice of what the beach is for our family, a place to gather and relax in a charming and old-fashioned community. Many a day as I walked our dog through Carillon, I looked longingly at the charming little guest cottages scattered about and thought wouldn't it great fun to be able to share the magic of Carillon with others. Here we are, six years later; my dream has come true and I am opening the doors of my little Florida style cottage for others to come and begin a life together, rest and reflect on a grand life together, celebrate a new life soon to come, or just celebrate the beauty of life. My business, Southern Serendipity, invites you to come and experience southern hospitality in a magical place.

Why the Owner Chose Carillon Beach Ph XXXIII, Laguna Beach, FL, USA:
Our Company, Southern Serendipity, is all about hospitality. Two, If By Sea is sweet and charming and is a throw-back to old Florida, and yet, it has fabulous amenities! If you are looking to experience something wonderful--a honeymoon, a babymoon, an anniversary, an unforgettable get-away, we would love to create that moment in time for you. I have a servant's heart and would love to get to know you and tailor your experience at our charming Florida-style cottage, Two, If By Sea.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Think of Carillon Beach as Seaside without the traffic. And that's really true. The architecture and community planning is similar, renowned architect Lloyd Vogt was Carillon's town planner. Because it's a gated community, the homes don't experience heavy traffic. The public is welcome to enjoy the downtown area, but the streets are relatively quiet. We love the proximity to the bigger city attractions in Panama City Beach and Destin, and the convenience to Seaside and Rosemary.. but once you're here, there's really no reason to roam! Add to that, wonderful pools, a playground, tennis courts, a lake with paddle boarding, and the downtown area all within walking distance. In our minds nothing compares to Carillon Beach. Once you visit, you won't want to stay anywhere else!
