About Ken Ross

Carillon Beach Resort Community and surrounding communities are as close to the most perfect vacation spot as we have ever found. We have vacationed on the gulf coast for several years with our children and grandchildren and have always had a wonderful time. When this home in the North West Florida Panhandle became available, we felt it would be a great place for our family and others to enjoy. We were impressed with its location in Carillon Beach which offers all the amenities one would want for a family getaway. We are excited to introduce you to or invite you back to the completely renovated version of Generations Beach House, a Beachfront Main House with Guest Cottage.

What an awesome house. Thank you for a great vacation. This is by far the best house in the area.

If you are looking for a high class place to stay, you have found it. This house is listed as "kid friendly"

which it is. BUT do not let it fool you, it is also a great place for adults only. i Personally looked at other

houses in the area, hands down, the best, we will be back. Thank you !

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. We are glad you had a great Beach vacation. We enjoy sharing Generations with all but seem to have many more adults coming without the kids at this time of year. The "shoulder" seasons - as some call it - are our favorite times of the year, with crisp mornings, warm sunny afternoons, and an "endless" back yard of a view!

Perfect for couples getaway as well as family vacation with the kids.

In my recent review I forgot to add how accommodating the owners were! I emailed them any questions I had and they were so nice to respond immediately. So great to work with.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words about our responses. We love sharing Generations with others and also want to be available when needed. Our goal is to be like a good waiter in a great restaurant: to respond when needed but not join in on the party!

Generations exceeded our expectations! The house was clean and very spacious! We had 8 adults but could has easily added lots of kids and even a couple more adults with the extra rooms and pull out sofas. Very nicely decorated and not dated at all! Large flat screens in every room, perfect for watching football at night. We did not utilize the kitchen very much but it had very nice high-end appliances and an extremely large dining table which would be great for big family vacations! Two of the couples that stayed are planning on bringing family back to Carillon for vacation with hopes of staying in Generations again!! The private access to the beach from the balcony was perfect... especially if you have young children and sand toys to take with you.... The neighborhood was quiet and had sidewalks everywhere for kids and families to ride their bikes. Very short walk to the shops and restaurants in Carillon. Perfect location all around. 15 min drive from Seaside and Watercolor. 3 minute drive to nice restuarants in Rosemary beach. Very quiet and family oriented. We didn't use the pools but they were very nice for when we come back with children.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Many of our guests are not wanting to cook every meal and enjoy the central location of Generations' proximity to all the great restaurants. When guests do like to have meals at Generations, we want them to be able to really use the kitchens just like they were at their home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are always excited, even after all these years, to live in a home where there is always a view. Daily, from just waking up to sunset, "that" view is never the same - but always relaxing.

Family Reunion 2014

  • 4 of 5

My family of three grown kids, two married, and seven grandkids enjoyed our time together at Generations. It had been almost five years since we had all been able to get together. The accommodations were great and everyone had a terrific time enjoying the beach the pools, the water park, putt-putt golf and go carts. Family fun is readily available.

I am adding some comments that I would hope to receive from a guest if I were the owner. The cottage was definitely smaller than the virtual tour suggested. In fact, sleeping arrangements were changed and my son and oldest grandson slept on the couches in the family room. The cottage was also less stocked than the big house, so much so that we purchased another set of cookware and brought glasses over from the big house. There were some maintenance issues that surprised me. The washer in the cottage would turn on but would not run. Helen contacted an appliance service person and determined that a pair of underwear had somehow managed to mess up the system. (Made me wonder where the linens from the previous guests were washed.) At my request, Helen contacted Matthew about the sliders in the living room of the big house as well as the doors to the bunk bed room upstairs. Repairs were made. Two areas of larger concern involve no inside door locks (a privacy matter for us since we slept in the queen suite on the main floor and the children (who were up much earlier than we generally were) were proned to use that bathroom rather than climb the stairs and the tile on the deck. Our youngest is only 20 months, has been walking for almost a year, and suffered many falls on the slippery deck. We tried to ameliorate the situation by purchasing rubber mats. I previously provided Helen with this information. I found both Helen and Pam to be warm hearted, friendly and very helpful.

The categories below are somewhat limiting for me. I would recommend, with reservations, to families with young children unless the deck was resurfaced.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your vacation at Generations. Thanks also for promptly reporting the challenge with the washer in the Guest Cottage and sliders so that they could be repaired. We apologize for the inconvenience of your having to "return" kitchen items from the Main House kitchen to the Guest Cottage kitchen, and we will see to it that both kitchens have all of the items needed "restocked." Sometimes guests "borrow" from one kitchen for the other kitchen and we overlook the "missing" items. Helen and/or Pam will gladly "restock" any items that may be missing with a phone call. The outside decks have been surfaced with a non-slip material, however sun tan lotion, sand, and other elements can combine with already slippery feet to make it a challenge for the little ones.

Was a Nice place!

I really enjoyed the house and location. A Trip to the nearby town of Seaside and strolling down 30-A is a must. Carillon Beach is obvious well-to-do, it's all gated with houses in the millions up and down the shoreline. The community center has some shopping, yoga, pizza bar and more.

The house slept 15 by our count- using an L-shaped couch in the main house basement as sleeping for two boys. We didn't use the 2 bunk beds sleeping 4 or the day bed - though they looked very comfortable for kids around 12 and under. Adults could use these beds in a pinch, though there is a king bed and three queen beds as actual beds. We didn't get the Murphy Bed to come down in the main living room main house- didn't need it.

There were plenty of plates, cups, cutlery and pans, etc for the kitchen. Spices were in the cupboard, though no condiments are left in the fridge for the next renter. Included on the beach are the three sets of chairs with umbrella and cushions for 6. Was nice to relax on them. There is also extra fold seating- and a shade tent you can set up closer to the ocean to watch kids, as the beach declines just a hair- and you can't see the kids clearly without going down closer to the ocean. There are plenty of sand buckets for the kids. There are also nets for crab catching- which wasn't "easy" but was fun. The crabs are not for eating- they're just small guys mostly. Didn't see any sea turtles- though i'm sure they're around somewhere.

The beach was private- so you didn't have a ton of day trippers near you. You could see them down the beach a ways- but not in your portion of the beach. Other community renters/members can set up tent next to yours- but the chairs are somewhat "set" and i didn't see anyone adding extra chairs with the umbrellas- though the chair guy Ryan said you could rent 1 set for $140/daily. You have plenty of personal space on the beach. You do not feel crowded.

At Generations you do not need to rent a golf cart to motor around in. You cannot use them on the beach, which is in your backyard anyway, and the community center is just a couple blocks away. You would not want to use the golf cart on the main street just outside the gates because that's basically highway. The only reason i could see wanting one is if your beachhouse was one not next to the beach- in which case you could use the golf cart for daily transport of your beachwares.

Thanks again, Ken. I was pleased as was my entire family.
