About the property

Amazing 2 bedroom 2.5 bath cottage home steps away from the Beach!

Blissful is a charming house inside the quiet, family friendly, private gated community of Carillon Beach.

The main floor has a living/kitchen/breakfast bar and dining table and 1/2 bath. Both bedrooms and full baths are on the second floor. The master suite has a King bed while the junior Suite has a queen bed. There is a outdoor shower and beach chair service is included March 1st through October 15. The house has just been newly redecorated including new outdoor furniture.

We have beach chair service located in front of the beach walkover. Two chairs and umbrella will be set up each morning for you and taken down each evening. The back of the chairs will say "Blissful" on them! Each sunday during the summer weeks there are Free Concerts located in our community that are family friendly and a ton of fun! We call it Groovin' on the Green. There are also many other special events centered around holidays that are a blast for the family to participate in!

Great house and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

What a great little piece of paradise. Sean and Jess were awesome to work with and have a perfect house for a single family. Beds were comfortable, showers were hot and everything was as advertised. Can’t wait to enjoy this place again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and everyone was right, just steps from the beach! House was great for our family of four. We enjoyed the complex and it was close to amenities outside of complex that we wanted to take advantage of. Sean was great to work with. Will recommend to others and will hope to go back.

Blissful location

  • 2 of 5

Blissful is fabulously located one home away from the beach walkover, and location is the primary driver behind why we booked Blissful for a second stay. Unfortunately though, the home and rental experience has deteriorated since our previous stay for 2017 spring break.

PROS: location, location; owner, sean davis was very responsive and easy to work with during booking; clean; tv channels and variety (but see below); beach towels provided.

CONS: kitchen - dishwasher will not open completely due to kitchen design; cookware and utensils are a weird array of extras in poor condition; outside - trashcan is completely falling apart; TVs - are at best, difficult to work and no instructions or guidance; no indoor or outdoor activities (board games for rainy days, body boards, sand toys/games, etc); gazebo in front had plastic Adirondack chairs during our first stay, this month they were located on the back porch and had black mold and dirt - not very inviting. no furniture in gazebo; front gate was completely jammed closed for the majority of the stay until we were able to pry it open; BEDS/BEDDING - uncomfortable pillows with more decorative pillows that actual sleeping pillows; OTHER - not (useful) enough hooks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of my home Blissful. I am sorry that you didn’t have a great stay due to some things that are and are not in my immediate control. As you know I am not a full time home renter and there is a learning curve that comes with this new venture we have undertook by sharing our home while we are not using it. These reviews directly affect my rental/income ability throughout the year. That being said I want to address each one of your concerns. I have just spent the past two weeks on site and have completely redecorated the home. New pots, new pans, cooking utensils, new artwork etc. I have bought new “wooden adirondak” with table for gazeebo, new lounge chairs for back patio, new bedding, 4 king sized sleeping pillows, towels, etc. The trash cans and gate that couldn’t open is something the HOA has taken care of. The TVs are operated by Comcast with all channels available to my guests. I have included a book that shows how to turn on and off and operate the guide. We do not offer beach toys and surf boards, boogie boards, because they usually quickly end up lost or damaged and become an eyesore. I really hope anyone reading this response can see the love and effort I put into my homes and will take a look at the new pictures to see just that. Robin I would also personally like to invite you or your family to come and enjoy a stay on me so that you can check out the improvements by yourself to see all of the progress. Once again I apologize for your experience and strive to make it right for all of my families who wish to come to Carillon and enjoy our home! -Sean and Jessica Davis

Quick Beach Access in a Lovely Community

  • 3 of 5

This was our 3rd rental in Carillon Beach. Blissful is perfect for those who want to be close to the beach, but can't afford a home rental directly on the beach. It is literally 20-30 steps away from beach walkover #1. Blissful was perfect for our party of 4. The home was neat and clean upon arrival and the homeowner was quick to respond to our questions. The back of the house does have a deck that overlooks a marsh/wooded area; however, the home owner has not provided a table or any chairs. A charcoal grill is available. There are 2 adirondack chairs on the gazebo located on the front lawn. While this house is adorable, it definitely needs a little TLC. The toilet paper holder is coming out of wall in downstairs bath and the master ceiling fan needs to be cleaned. There were also a few bulbs that need to be replaced. In addition, we did find it lacking a few basic necessities when preparing dinner. We could not find any potholders, pitchers for tea/lemonade, or cookie/baking sheets. Despite its shortcomings, I would still recommend Blissful. Its location is perfect.
