About Courtney

We are the Hancock Family, Courtney and Jerry, along with our twin daughters. We are from Nashville, TN. Our lives feel busy with work, school, and all the activities in between. We wanted a place where we could completely unplug from our daily lives and focus on each other to make lasting memories. Summer Magic gives us that consistent place where we can look back on the fun times we for shells on the beach, hooking our floats together in the ocean, playing silly games at the pool, playing board games on the porch, after dinner bike rides, our nightly chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven, reading chapter books to our girls on the porch, and staying up way too late because we are having so much fun together!

Courtney purchased this house in 2016

Why Courtney chose Carillon Beach Ph X

We first came to Carillon over a decade ago when our friends were married in the Meeting House. That first introduction made us fall in love with Carillon! With two young daughters we wanted a quiet beach with activities we could enjoy in addition to the beach such as swimming pools, a playground, and bike riding. Carillon takes you away to what feels like a little piece of "Mayberry" where the houses have white picket fences, every property is well maintained, and the neighbors always say hello when sitting on their porches.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with our house after renting it several years ago. When it came on the market, we knew this house was meant to be! We quickly made an offer and our dream beach house became a reality. What made us fall in love our house is it looks quaint and cozy but lives large, the screened in porch, the proximity to everything we love in Carillon, and our favorite part is being close enough to hear the bells which Carillon is named after.

Restful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in several places along 30A over the years, but only recently discovered Carillon Beach. We thought this house was the perfect retreat. With three active boys (ages 9-13) we are constantly traveling for sports. This was a great spot to push the reset button and unwind from our busy schedules. Our boys enjoyed the tennis/basketball courts, biking, and swimming during the day. They also enjoyed the board games that were provided and bunking together at night. Hubby & I appreciated starting our day with peaceful mornings on the porch and then ending our days there eating together as a family. Although we had several favorite dining spots close by, we preferred to stay at Summer Magic. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed. Like others have shared, the beds are extremely comfortable and everyone in our family was able to get a good night's sleep. (There is nothing worse than going on vacation and not sleeping well!) We highly recommend Summer Magic and appreciate all the extra details the owners have put into making this a great getaway.

This house is AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute you walk into this house you will know if is someplace special. The house is not only gorgeous, but very liveable; especially the front porch. We spent a lot of time out on the porch and it was just so relaxing. The beds, towels, kitchen utensils and cooking options was very complete for a rental. We loved the Keurig for our morning brew on the porch! The house was very clean and we tried to keep it that way. The communications with the owner was perfect and timely. We have already booked our next trip and cannot wait to return. You will NOT be disappointed.

Great rental, beautiful interior, fully equipped.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful visit. We love this cottage and will definitely be back. The beds were so comfy, with very plush linens. The kitchen had top of the line everything! We could tell the owner gave careful thought to making this place special. Short walk to the beach and because it was Jan. we felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. Special memories were made.

Beautiful house, perfect beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Carillon Beach at Summer Magic. The house is gorgeous and so functional. It is nestled in with other beautiful beach houses. Our walk to the beach was a block through the neighborhood to the private beach access. We pulled our kids and beach items in wagons (one provided by Summer Magic) to the beach. The beach chairs were waiting for us and the beach was so quiet. There were tons of seashells (more than any other trip we've taken to Destin) and my girls loved exploring and swimming in the water. At the house, we enjoyed breakfast on the screened in porch and dinners at the beautiful table. The kitchen was well stocked with all the appliances and gadgets. My daughter LOVED the bunk beds. All the beds were so fresh and cozy. The house had an outdoor shower which was so helpful in keeping the sand outside. The shed is also stocked with balls, beach toys, chairs, bikes and a wagon. We also took advantage of the basketball court, swing set and pool in the neighborhood. We loved the quietness and quaintness of the area. I highly recommend Summer Magic!
