Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

'Two Stuffed Olives' was built in 2009 and is located in the Cottage District of Carillon Beach. It is just steps away from the sugar white sand and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Powell. Situated in a private gated community, Two Stuffed Olives is the perfect vacation place for family and friends. This 2,700 sq ft home offers three levels of spacious accommodations and sleeps 10-12. A great choice for weddings or vacations as we typically rent Sunday to Sunday for summer but we will try to accommodate Sat-Sat rentals depending on availability during other seasons. It is approximately 1000 ft. from the beach walkover (an easy 3 minute walk) and is a few houses from the tennis courts, playground, park, and heated pool located off Cottage Court (behind Parkshore Drive). Two additional pools (one beachside) are nearby inside Carillon's secure gates.

This home has all the extras you are looking for. Flat screen TVs, BlueRay DVDs, 12 ft ceilings on each floor, beautiful heart of pine hardwood floors throughout (perfect for pets and children), granite countertops, travertine stone in all baths, high-end fixtures and appliances - including a standalone ice maker to keep your cooler full for trips to the beach and pool. We also provide four beach lounge chairs complete with cushions and umbrellas set up by Ed's Beach Service daily from March 1st - October 15th as part of your rental - so no lugging chairs the beach.

The first floor offers living/dining room, well-equipped kitchen, and has a queen bed and full bath. The table on the first floor seats 6 and their are 4 additional bar stools for dining. The second floor has the master bedroom with king bed and in-suite bath complete with jetted whirlpool tub with adjoining shower, double sinks, and a beautiful balcony. A third bedroom complete with two sets of bunk beds and private bath for the kids is located on the second floor next to the washer/dryer closet. The third floor features a fourth bedroom with a queen bed, full bath and amazing entertainment room complete with wet bar (microwave, ice maker, mini fridge and coffee maker too). An additional table that seats 6 and 3 more bar stools add to dining and game playing options. All bedrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor have private balconies and the 3rd floor balcony (lanai) is approx 200 sq feet and has Gulf views. The 3rd floor bedroom balcony also has views of the Gulf and Lake Powell. We also have a Pack 'N Play so you don't need to bring one to the beach for the little ones. The house includes cable TV and secure WIFI and printer in case you need to keep in touch or do a little work while visiting the beach.

Carillon Beach, located just east of 30-A is known for its parks, promenades, dune walkovers and pavilions. The community blends innovative coastal architecture and urban-planning traditions. The centerpiece of the 104-acre walking and biking community is the Carillon Bell Tower housing 35 bells. Sidewalks and footpath system are easy for families and friends to enjoy the amenities of the beach. Carillon also has a 'downtown' market area that includes restaurants, bike rentals, shopping, fitness center and a spa. During the summer make sure you join in for live music at 'Groovin' on the Green' weekly throughout the summer.

Immediately outside of the 24-hour Carillon guard gate is a Publix, Winn Dixie and CVS Pharmacy for all of your needs. Even a Waffle House if you want breakfast fast. Kids can ride their bikes and parents can know they are safe inside the property. Pier Park is 15 minutes away with a large movie theater, shopping (Target, Dillards) and many restaurants like Margaritaville, Tootsies, Five Guys, Cold Stone Creamery, Red Robin, Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse, to name a few. A new Fresh Market Grocery store and Dick's sporting goods are available if you need a few items you left at home.

We hope your time at Two Stuffed Olives will be filled with relaxing sunsets, cool drinks, wonderful memories, and sand between your toes. We know you will want to come back every year so don't miss your chance to book today. Dates are booking fast so contact us today!

About The Owner

Carillon has always been a special place for my family. Two Stuffed Olives became a reality in December 2010 just after being completed in 2009. In fact, its Moxie and Sundae's second home (yes that is them in the picture)! We can't wait to share our favorite spot with you too. As you can see with two dogs it was important to have a house that accommodates pets, beach family vacations, as well as folks attending weddings in Carillon with Sunday to Sunday rentals. We hope you'll enjoy all that Carillon has to offer and you'll want to keep coming back too! JB, Moxie and Sundae, Dunwoody, GA.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

We love how Carillon Beach is its own little world. Once you enter the 24-hour guard gate, you have access to everything you need - 3 pools, playground, tennis courts, basketball courts and of course our amazing sugar white sand beaches. Getting married in Carillon was amazing and we hope you will love it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We enjoyed the nearly private beach; the boys loved the new basketball court and the fully stocked kitchen made cooking family meals a breeze! JB, you made our last minute booking a cinch! Thanks so much!

A beautiful, quiet home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The house was just as described and more. A perfect location; a few minutes walk to the beach, the pool, and other activities. A few minutes drive to shops, the grocery store and great restaurants.

We had a lazy day at the house and thanks to TSO, they had games, movies and the fabulous kitchen with all the essentials to make our Thanksgiving meal and family time a true delight.

We have and will continue to recommend this house to our family and friends. By far the best rental we have ever had. And if you are looking for a great stay, rent this one.

We loved our stay at Two Stuffed Olives

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Two Stuffed Olives this Fall. JB was so nice an easy to work with. We were so grateful to find a place that would allow us to bring our sweet dog with us. The house is beautiful, well taken care of, and had everything we would need plus more! The thoughtful touches like beach towels, fully stocked kitchen, and even a full water bowl for our puppy when we arrived, really were above and beyond what we expected! We loved taking strolls around the community, trying several of the restaurants that JB recommended, or just relaxing at the beach.

We have stayed at Carillon several times and Two Stuffed Olives was definitely our favorite. We can’t wait to return, hopefully sooner than later!

Simply delightful. Highly recommend TSO.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week in between Christmas and New Year's at Two Stuffed Olives. We had a mix of adults and little ones. TSO was the perfect home for us. We had a fantastic time. The house had lots of space; was all upscale and lovely. There were games and puzzles on the third floor that we used on a rainy afternoon. Every room had a television, as well as DVD players. The washer/dryer were on the second floor, in the middle of house, which was great, and they were large to accommodate a big family like ours. The kitchen was nicely stocked with a good mix of pots/pans and dishes.

TSO location to the park and heated pool was fantastic. It was about a 2 block walk to the beach walkover. Even though it was cooler weather, we spent a lot of time at the beach. TSO provided beach towels, which was great. TSO has several deck spaces to retreat for your own space.

Carillon is our favorite PCB destination. We walked to Shipwreck for a few souvenirs and to The Lake House for a burger and a beer. We went to Pirate's Adventure Mini Golf and to Rock'it Lanes for bowling, roller skating and arcades. We got pizza from Bubba's and BBQ from Back Beach BBQ, both were amazing.

We have rented many times in Carillon and TSO will be our go to rental. JB was an absolute peach to work with. Not one issue at all. She was accommodating, friendly and kept in contact with me before, and after our stay. As the owner of the home, I could tell that JB cared about our stay. Working with the owner directly makes such a difference in the personal connection. I cannot say enough nice things about Two Stuffed Olives.

Wonderful Spot for Our First Big Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say tell you how much we enjoyed our time at TSO! The family had a great week and all very much enjoyed their extended time at the beach. The proximity to the beach was perfect and there was more than enough room for everyone to have plenty of space, especially for the one rainy day when we all just hung out and listened to the raindrops...all in all very relaxing.

The house was in great condition and provided everything we needed! Thank you JB! I don't know what our plans may be for next year, but we will definitely plan to come back at some point in the future.

Again & again we keep coming back to TSO!! We love your house! There is nothing we could ask for! The owners have taken so much pride in this house! It was our 3rd time staying here! We enjoyed everything from a fully stocked kitchen to the beach towels that are provided! The outdoor space is wonderful! So many options to pick from, but if you go to the beach 🏖? then relax on 1 of the 4 beach chairs that come with the rental!!

Wonderful Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (along with our yorkiepoo Bonnie) have just returned from a wonderful stay at Two Stuffed Olives. We were here for six weeks and the time absolutely flew by. I can honestly say Two Stuffed Olives is the best winter getaway you could ask for! The house is absolutely equipped to provide for a number of guests comfortably with four bedrooms and four baths. We had a great time entertaining numerous family and friends who came by for visits and everyone was very complimentary of the accommodations. This home has the best video and book collection we have ever seen!

The owner, JB, and property manager, Helen, were amazing! If there was a question or need, it was answered immediately. Fortunately we had very few needs, even the weather was absolutely beautiful! We totally enjoyed the four beach chairs with umbrellas that were provided starting March 1st.

Carillon Beach is a beautiful gated community that should please all ages. If you tire of the beach, tennis courts, pools, etc., there are plenty of activities in the area including great restaurants on the beach where you can enjoy good food and sunsets!

We will absolutely return to Two Stuffed Olives!
