About The Owner

Although I adore my home place Nashville where I have always lived, my heart is at this beach. My husband and I married here in one of the 30-A beach villages. I do believe this is the most beautiful beach in America and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Laguna Beach

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

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 weekly 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!

The house was perfect for our family!!

  • 5 of 5

When we first walked in the house and saw the beautiful view, we couldn't believe our eyes!! The kids loved the boat beds in the loft. The adults loved the bedrooms with the view of the water. The kitchen had every kind of cookware needed. It helped to have the extra washer and dryer in the guest house. We just loved the house and everything about it!! Thank you for sharing it with us!!

Beautiful, clean, immaculate, comfortable beds, pillows, bedding!!! Cooked for 12 people each night-everything we needed was there. Very private beach, small development so never crowded. Beach chairs/umbrellas on beach each day. Gorgeous view of Gulf and cool breeze! Our family time with 4 babies and 10 adults crossed 4 generations:). We had an indescribable time! Thank you Kathi for your amazing hospitality and excellent communication!!

Fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this immaculate and beautiful beachfront home.

Every detail was tended to. We loved being right on the beach with the beautiful ocean view from the porch where we had our coffee and donuts every morning. The beach itself was amazing and very private. The Carillon location is really wonderful, central to many activities but less crowded than the Rosemary Beach, Seaside area. Very convenient having the Publix

within walking distance! Loved the elevator for luggage and groceries. The pool was wonderful for the small children, especially on days when the ocean was a little rough or chilly.

We would definitely recommend this house. Kathi was wonderful to work with and we received our deposit back just a few days after returning home.
