I just wanted to say thank you for opening up this beautiful home to others. My family and I love Carillon and have stayed in 7 of the beachfront homes and yours is our favorite!! The home is beautiful, warm and inviting decor. We think the bedrooms are more spacious than others we have stayed in, and the living space is large and comfortable!
We make an annual trip to Carillon with our family and we will definitely be back to your great home.
Thanks again we have wonderful memories from our vacation to "Permanent Vacation."
Permanent Vacation is one of our favorite homes in Carillon Beach. It is beautifully decorated and well appointed. It delivered exactly what it always delivers!
Our family enjoyed the week in Carillon Beach at Permanent Vacation. This house was perfect for us. We had an age range from 1 to 60. The house was just as described. It was so close to the beach pool. The kids could easily walk without complaining :-). We spent the morning and evenings on the decks overlooking the beach. The owners were easy to work with. Only issue we had was the guests before us, apparently trashed the house, and there was a 3 1/2 hour delay in us checking in. There was extra cleaning necessary. We will definitely consider a return trip.
What a beautiful home and great location. Close to the beach pool and a beautifully decorated home. One of the teenage girls traveling with us walked in and with her mouth open said "Are you sure this is the right house?" She was in very impressed with the home.
However, we were a little disappointed that the home advertised a screened porch but the screens were missing from the porch. It appears they had recently painted and did not put them back up before our visit. This would have been nice to know beforehand. Especially, since we were also introduced to the biting yellow flies during this visit. The screened porch really would have been nice for this reason. We also would have liked to have known the painters would be showing up Monday morning during our visit to finish up their painting. That was a surprise as we sat on the porch in our PJ's enjoying our morning coffee.
All in all we still enjoyed our vacation. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
We found this home pristinely clean, beautifully furnished, comfortable and well-supplied (kitchen, particularly) for our family group of 8, including 3 young children. (Note:we brought our Pack and Play, but there is a stair-gate for the toddler) Spending 4 days over the Thanksgiving holiday was relaxing and delightful--the cool weather did not hamper our enjoyment at all...we enjoyed walking and playing on an uncrowded beach, and appreciated the view and the ocean sounds, morning til night. Access is easy and convenient to "trappings of civilization" such as tennis, pools, shopping, and restaurants (some within easy walking/biking distance), but did not encroach on the peaceful setting. The property manager and the owner were accessible and responsive...but we really had no problems of concern during our stay.
Although we wouldn't expect the same "quiet" during the peak warm/hot season, we know we'd enjoy the amenities of Permanent Vacation at that time of year, also, and hope to make that happen!
Permanent Vacation was a wonderful home away from home! The house is lovely and beautifully decorated, with nice kitchen appliances. It was just the right size for our party of 8 adults. We very much enjoyed the screened-in porch and the close proximity to the beach. The only disappointment (hence 4 stars instead of 5) was the fact that we couldn't open the windows and doors to let in the sea breezes - there were no screens and we were specifically instructed by the owner to not leave the doors open because it puts a strain on the A/C. One of my top reasons for getting a house right on the beach is because I love to open the windows at night and enjoy the feel of the wind and hear the sounds of the surf.
The Carillon Beach community was also lovely and has a lot to offer - nice pools and hot tub, bike rentals, gym, yoga classes, happy hours, etc. some good restaurants we ate at in the area were La Cocina, Great Southern, Uncle Ernie's, and Panama Pizzeria.
I also enjoyed working directly with the owner, Angela, through the Home Away website. I would definitely recommend Permanent Vacation and Carillon Beach to anyone (unless you want to enjoy the sea breezes from within your house). I wish I could have given 4.8 stars instead of only 4!
The community of Carillon Beach is gated and offers three pools, two tennis courts, and a playground for the kids. Carillon Beach is very close to two grocery stores and approx. 10 minutes from the all new Pier Park complex which offers shopping, dining, and entertainment.
Very close to the new Northwest Florida Beaches airport (ECP)!
