About The Owner

Although I adore my home place Nashville where I have always lived, my heart is at this beach. I do believe this must be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Rosemary Beach

Bahama Mama & a Banana Cabana are perched atop the second highest sand dune in our staffed-entry gatehouse village that boasts three bodies of water. Too the architect incorporated designs to enhance the views. Our builder who built over 20+ houses in Rosemary, said we have the best view down there.

Welcome to Bahama Mama & a Banana Cabana . . .

a place where relaxation comes with the sun’s warm embrace; a splendid seclusion for those who are serious about taking life easy, yet desire every refinement.

What makes this house unique

Quite simply . . .

Bahama Mama & A Banana Cabana set an unprecedented NEW level of supreme perfection. You will not believe our extensive between-guest services, & furnishings! Enjoy freshly washed/ironed slipcovers & linen throw pillow covers others have not used since laundered; weekly window washer, weekly touched up painter; (best we know how to buy) kitchen items, pillows, etc., etc., etc. . . ).

Guestbook comments from the owner

K, Thank you for returning my security deposit so quickly - I hope your crew found that we left everything in good order. I wanted to thank you for such a terrific house and wonderful vacation. Your home was beautiful and everything you represented it to be. We also loved the location and the privacy and security of being within a gated-community. This is the first time we've rented a home for a family vacation and I can certainly see us doing it again in the near future. What a great experience - just wish we were still there! Thanks again!

PS: MOM DID GREAT. I PUT HER IN THE BEDROOM ON THE THIRD FLOOR SO SHE WAS ON THE SAME LEVEL TO MAKE HER COFFEE EARLY IN THE MORNING AND WHERE ALL THE ACTION WAS MOST OF THE TIME. ACTUALLY, THE LAYOUT WORKED GREAT FOR OUR GROUP. THE ELEVATOR WAS WONDERFUL TO HAVE AND MOM SPENT LOTS OF TIME ON THE TOP THIRD FLOOR GULF BALCONY. Yes, you are welcome to use any of my comments in testimonials or ads. Please also feel free to use me as a reference if you should need one. Have a great weekend! AH (Dallas, TX) August 9--16, 2014

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we've rented a home for a family vacation and I can certainly see us doing it again in the near future. What a great experience - just wish we were still there! The house and location were perfect, and the owner was fabulous to work with in getting everything set up. The house and beach were just like the pictures - perfect in every way.

Simply outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Bahama Mama was a dream come true! This was our first time to Carillon Beach, and wow - we were spoiled! The weather was perfect, the community provides a touch of Charleston and Seaside, and its amenities are just off the charts. Going in the off-season was magical, as the beaches were practically private, and the whole atmosphere was very intimate and upscale.

And the house! Your gorgeous appointments in the kitchen, bedrooms, and family room almost stole the show. When we could peel them off the beach (only steps away from the bedroom), our kids loved the nautical loft and its private TV. Placing the kitchen and family room on the upper level so we could all afford stunning views of crystal-clear gulf water and its marine life in the mornings was genius. All of your little touches made our vacation outstanding. A top-notch experience all the way around! We hope you'll let us come back!

Thank you for a wonderful week in your beautiful home. It was priceless is see the look on our adult children's faces when they first saw your beach house. They and their children were so excited--running around and saying "look at this"! Everything was first class. The elevator was super to have when bringing in groceries and luggage or just saving our old legs from all of the stairs. We loved the guest house as our retreat--we could sleep and wake on our own timeline. When we grilled the first time, we realized that the handle was gone from the hood, so we called to report it and later in the day a new grill arrived. Unbelievable! We will be back.

Great House/Great Location/Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We rented both Bahama Mama and Banana Cabana a couple of years ago. We had four families with 8 total adults and 9 total kids. I couldn't have more great things to say about Carillon Beach as a community, the house(s) themselves or the owners. Even with 17 people the house never felt cramped. The location overlooking the white sand of the beach was breathtaking. We have rented many houses in different locations will tell you the thing that set BM&BC apart from the rest was the owner's attention to detail to every possible need a renter might have. Not only did they have every kitchen item you could possible need, everything was labelled and easy to find. We loved this house!!!!!

This house provides the life we all dream of

  • 5 of 5

When we searched for the perfect vacation beach house, we found Bahama Mama. Upon arriving we had the pleasure of meeting the owners, Kathi and John, and discovered that the house was way beyond perfect. It is the quintessential American beach house: light, bright, open, spacious, comfortable, simple, AND elegant!

Our entire family loved the house and the amazing white sand beach. From cooking together, flying kites, building sand castles, to enjoying sunsets and wine - it gave our far flung family ( Seattle,WA, Madison, WI, and Houston TX) 7 glorious days to renew and strengthen family ties.

The maintenance, the attention to detail, the quality of the amenities all make Bahama Mama a place we all want to return to.

Thank you!
