About Pat Zimmerman

We are a retired couple with a wonderful close and extended family who love the Beach House and we all spend as much time together as possible. Our house was built not only for our comfort but also for the kids and grandkids in mind. Some of our children are now grown and their children are now sleeping in our full size crib making wonderful memories.

We are there when you need us.

Why Pat Zimmerman chose Carillon Beach

The beauty of the complex and the family community (9 grandchildren spend their vacation time with us), and having our own beach house with our own private walkover to the beach and watching the sun go down. It is our dream home.

What makes this house unique

Not logging stuff to the beach and the magnificant views from our living room and master bedroom of the gulf

You will not be disappointed

The Best; Beach Area, Beach House and especially the Owners!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place we found this fall at Carillon. From the first initial email to the last the owners always answered and we were given great information. We LOVED this beach house. 3 Couples shared without a problem and a 4th could have come along with the lower level being utilized. This home is beautifully equipped and the owners are very comfortable with sharing their things. You can pack pretty light for this rental. The view is stunning and the beach (toes in the sand) is literally 21 ft away from the balcony. (6m for Canadians). The resort offers food choices and a bar along with a coffee shop for the morning. We were at the bar twice and it was comfortable and pretty laid back. Lots of TVs for you sports or Bachelor shows. S

The umbrella fellow set up the chairs each morning with the pads and the beach was cleaned and dragged each day. We were attending a wedding and it was a perfect setting. We walked to each venue as the wedding was on the beach. Very easy walking the area every day. It is gated and has 24hr security so no worries about safety at night or for children.

All in all a great, wonderful, spectacular, relaxing place to spend some time by the Gulf. In the area are lots to do with most being a short drive. 5-15 min. Grocery stores are right at the corner, easily walked and a couple of nice restaurants are nearby. The owners have some very comprehensive documentation on all the area amenities, golf reviews, and restaurants. We used some of the recommendations and they all panned true. That was very helpful.

We would definitely stay again sometime soon but the available weeks here, I know, go fast and the owners enjoy their beach house themselves and who wouldn't. Remember to book ahead and hopefully the weeks are open for you. You will not regret renting this beach house. It is a place to make memories. Sunsets are right out your window and still Free!!

Cheers from cold, snowy Canada.

Our Little Secret

  • 5 of 5

Hi Pat & Vic,

I just wanted to thank you again for sharing your home with us. We had the most amazing week at The Beach House and the weather was absolutely perfect every day!!! I keep telling everyone we meet in Carillon about how much we love your house and how it is so family friendly, but now I’m thinking we should be keeping it our little secret;-) We have plans to take the kiddos to Disney next year, but we plan to be back again in 2016…can’t wait!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I would just like to say how wonderful is is to be able to stay at the Beach House. You could not pin point a better location as Carillon Beach is 15 minutes away from the airport, 1/4 mile from the grocery store, two doors down from the pool, and 8 feet from the sand. The layout of the home is perfectly set up so that our family was able to bond and at the same time have our own space for sleeping, getting ready, etc. You could not find better people to work with then Pat and Vic, as they could not be more accommodating and available for all of our questions and needs. The Beach House has everything you need in having an absolute perfect vacation. This is the place that you will always come back to whenever you can! Thanks so much Pat & Vic

The Beach House exceeded my greatest expectations. The pictures tell only part of the story! As a grandmother with four young grandchildren The Beach House is where to go to make great family memories. Everything needed is provided (including a full size baby bed, beach towels, beach toys and a kitchen equipped with everything you need). The owners were great to work with and even called to check in on us.

Sipping morning coffee prior to a walk on the white sandy beach and watching the sun go down on the porch were my favorites. Only steps away from one of the three pools and the delightful village with restaurants and an ice cream store made our trip perfect. Cannot wait to return.

Fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful location right on the beach with everything you need to have a fabulous beach vacation. The house is very cute, with lots of light, plenty of bathrooms (we had 5 girls for our stay), and well-equipped kitchen, and the surrounding properties are just as gorgeous. Having the resort setting in a gated community, where you can get food and drink within walking distance is a huge plus, making a rental car a plus (since you'll want to travel down 30A for shopping and restaurants) but not a must. Everything very clean. Loved the guide the owners put together, reviewing restaurants and attractions. Their restaurant reccos were spot on! The Terrace and V in Seagrove should not be missed, nor Sunshine's down the road for breakfast. We would definitely recommend The Beach House!

More Than We Expected

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time to do a rental and we were not sure what to expect. I was in charge of locating a place to house three families for a wedding at Carillon. The house, view, and owners were more than we ever expected. The phone call shortly after arrival to make sure everything was as we expected to the bottle of wine to celebrate our good fortune of finding such a treasure. We hunted daily for shells, watched the dolphins swim offshore, and enjoyed beautiful sunsets in the evening. Our family has not stopped talking about the beautiful location and fun we enjoyed during our stay. We look forward to the opportunity to stay again at the beautiful "Beach House".
