Caribbean Dreamin’ is a large, comfortable, three story home in the private community of Carillon Beach, Florida. It has four bedrooms, three baths, hall bunks and a spacious tower room with daybed and trundle. The floors are beautiful oak hardwood and polished marble tile. All bedrooms have flat-panel TVs. The porches on all three levels are equally perfect for having morning coffee or watching the beautiful evening sunsets over the gulf.
Enjoy your morning coffee while people-watching in your Adirondack chair on the first floor veranda as they walk, jog, or bicycle past. Don’t be surprised if many say 'Good Morning' as they go past. On the second floor veranda, a hammock awaits you when the afternoon ‘lazies’ grab you. On the third level, both the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Carillon dominate the view while sitting outside in comfortable furniture.
The kitchen has granite counter tops and enough equipment for our extended family to have Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. The dining table seats eight people and the four-person bar allows seating for the rest. Winn-Dixie and Publix are both within walking distance by making it easy to stock up your kitchen or run out for that key ingredient you forgot at the last minute.
The living room has multiple seating areas so everyone can have their own ‘space’. One is at the entertainment center where the TV, CD, DVD, and stereo are located. Another area is in front of the fireplace where real wood logs can be burned. Feel free to enjoy our family’s games already there, including Trivial Pursuit, Tribond, Scrabble, Ultimate Outburst, and Rummikub. You might even try a jigsaw puzzle or two. You are also welcome to check out our bookcase. If you don’t get finished with a book before you have to leave, take it with you. We just ask that you leave one in its place so others will also be able to enjoy them. In fact, if you have some books at home that others may enjoy, please bring them with you to add to the collection.
Once you exit our house through the picket fence gate, we hope your biggest decision is whether to turn left to head for the beach or turn right for one of the three pools. Either way, they are both only a few steps away.
Please call or e-mail for additional interior photos of all the rooms.
Between Panama City and Destin.
Carillon Beach is a private, gated community 20 miles from Panama City and 30 miles from Destin. Rosemary Beach (2 miles) and Seaside (8 miles) are nearby. Carillon is a quiet jewel reminiscent of old-Florida and what Seaside used to be before the congestion and traffic jams you find today. Carillon has been written about in past issues of Coastal Living, Southern Living, Atlanta Magazine, and Season Magazine. Amenities available for your enjoyment are three pools, (all heated in the off season), one of which is located adjacent to the beach, tennis courts, a basketball court, and shopping in Downtown Carillon. Since Carillon is a private, protected community, all of the streets are perfect for bicycling for 'kids' of any age. Just watch out for the speed bumps that insure that cars and golf carts go slowly.
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, miniature golf, basketball
