Come escape into your own personal paradise. 'Nestled Inn' at Carillon Beach is a beautifully decorated home, with stately trim, a spiral staircase, and an abundance of windows so you can enjoy gorgeous views of the gulf and the warm Florida sunshine. This home also has a second-floor walkout balcony, ideal for breakfast at sunrise and watching the sunset over the white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast.
Whether you would like to enjoy an evening in relaxing or a night out, Carillon Beach has it all. The gated gulf-front community's private streets are perfect for a bike ride or short stroll though the 'Promenade' to Downtown. On your arrival you will be greeted by the glow of string lights and live music from the shops and restaurants.
Carillon Beach has been highlighted in both Southern Living and Coastal Living magazines for its classic architecture and white picket fences. The upscale gated community also includes 3 large gated pools, including the beach pool overlooking the gulf, and a kiddie pool for the littlest guests, a recreational area, and a non-denominational chapel.
Minutes outside the private gates of Carillon Beach you'll find easy accessibility to grocery stores, shopping, golf, restaurants, and family recreation. The new Panama City Airport is just a short fifteen minute drive.
Enjoy some much needed time away...'Nestled Inn' at Carillon Beach.
We had a great vacation at Nestled Inn and we loved Carillon Beach! Although we had rain a few days, it was still nice to get away and relax. Our kids loved the bunk bed and outdoor shower! Since our kids are still young, we liked being on the same level of the house. There were 3 pools to choose from, but we only swam in the 2 that were heated;) The kids loved the park and walking trails where bikes were allowed. We were very pleased with the house…very clean and welcoming. We also liked the living area where we could relax as a family. The owners were great to deal with. We will be sure to rent this house the next time we are able to get away, and I am already talking to my friends planning a "girls trip" this summer for our 40th birthdays!
I really use reviews to help kick the tires on a property so am writing this one to be sure everyone knows what they are getting with Nestled Inn. We had a very nice time but the property didn't completely meet our expectations.
First the good: The property was generally very clean (see note below) and a very short walk to the beach--very well located. Carillon is a lovely development. It also had all we needed in bedding, towels, kitchen supplies, air conditioning, tv/cable and wifi. Now, our challenges with it: A few items just weren't as advertised: the outdoor shower was not functioning and there were no views of the Gulf (possibly due to other property's trees). The downstairs bathroom, which includes the washer/dryer is very tight with few places for a family to put toiletries and for towels to dry--there wasn't even room for the bottle of laundry detergent, except on the floor, where I was afraid someone would trip over it. The physical set up/Jack and Jill layout with the bathroom wasn't very functional for us. Some others called the unit "adorable/cute"--we thought it a bit cramped, especially downstairs. We don't need a lot of space, but this was just a bit too tight for the 3 of us--and it may have been our mistake, because the mention of a spiral staircase should have tipped us off that it was very compact. And the rates are lower than most in Carillon, so that also might reflect the space issue. Finally, it was a bit worn, with lots of scuff marks on the walls, caked on dust on ceiling fans and deterioration of the films on door glass (in the bathroom).
So don't read this as a bad review, but just one that helps people to better judge if it is the right property for them. The owners were very nice and left good instructions.
Nestled Inn fit our needs perfectly. It is a short stroll to the beach and the house is furnished with everything you need.
This is a GREAT house! If you are looking for an adorable and well maintained home close to the beach.....this is it! Our family had a fabulous week and even got to meet the owners while we were there. Such a great couple to rent from and a very lovely home.
We loved this cute little cottage, perfect for our family. The location can't be beat-- close to everything and a short 1 block walk to the beautiful beach. We loved the gated community and the fact that our kids could wander/bike all over and feel safe. The owners were extremely responsive, helpful and kind. When we started to make coffee our first morning there, we noticed the coffee maker was missing the carafe. I contacted the owners and they arrived with a brand new coffee maker. =) Would highly recommend this house!
This is a perfect beach home for an amazing getaway to Carillon Beach--beautifully decorated, cozy, and so close to the beach!!! You will LOVE every minute of your time at Nestled Inn!!!!!!!!!
