Guestbook comments from the owner

We drove in after an early morning and bit of air travel into the beautiful Carillon gated lake and beach community. The house is amazing with a nice view of the lake in the front and a spectacular ocean view from the living room and up stairs master bedroom and balconies.

We chose Fairview Cottage for its access to the beach and to the pool next door, and it was everything we had hoped it would be, starting with the great support we received from Denise prior to actually reserving up to our walk in the door and calling to ensure we had everything we needed. We have two young boys (2 and 4) and were traveling with our parents. The house literally had everything we needed and all the comforts of home. Shopping is so near by we enjoyed a walk to get a few items. There were beach toys and balls and other toys that kept our boys entertained when we were not at the pool. We built sand sea animals with the buckets and shovels and tools at the house. There were water noodles and pool toys that got plenty of use and bikes for kids and adults that were frequently used as well. We cooked and ate all meals at the house and had every cooking item we could ever need including a charcoal grill which was used 7 nights in a row for vegetables, meats from the near by grocery store and fish from the suggested fish market within 10 to 15 minutes.

We enjoyed walks on the beach every day and walks within the village and community lake area as well as frequent walks to the very close state park. The house was furnished beautifully and comfortably slept the 4 adults and 2 children for the week. The balcony from the main living area was perfect for relaxing in the shade and getting our sunscreen on for hours of fun on the beach. Beach service chairs and umbrellas were used every day and we all enjoyed the warm outdoor shower each time we stepped off the beach.

We also used the beverage blender frequently and were pleased with the selection of drinks and mixers available at the near by grocery store or very close liquor stores. The location is great, within a bike ride of nearby Rosemary beach and shopping as well, but we did not find much to tempt us away from the house and beach and enjoyed every minute.

Breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

Fairview Cottage is truly a gem that meets the magnificent ocean water! When I booked our vacation I was hoping to find a home on a mostly private beach. I wanted my family to be able to enjoy the beach without so many people. I also wanted a home nestled in a charming gated community with lovely restaurants and boutique shops. I found this and more at Fairview! This home has the best personality on the beach and its location is absolutely ideal! The pool is next door and the ocean is just steps away. My kid's mouths dropped open when we first walked in. They were jumping around so excited!! The view is BREATHTAKING! After our kids were in bed ( they are 13,12, & 4) my husband and I would sit on our bedroom balcony and look at the stars as we listened to the waves rolling in. So many times I said "I can't believe how gorgeous this is!" The owner Denise is just flat out awesome. She made sure we had everything we needed. She called to make sure all was well. She recommended places to go, etc. I promise you won't find anyone more attentive and eager to please. She wants you to relax and enjoy! And enjoy we did!!! We all had the best time! I took each kid on different days to breakfast early in the morning while the rest of the family slept. I wanted that private time with each of them before they started school. The little cafe is just a short walk away....

We are already talking about going back and staying at Fairview. If you're looking for a beautiful home right on the ocean you must stay here! It is truly a gem!

Perfect location, Great house

  • 5 of 5

The property was extremely clean and very well kept. Obviously property maintenance has been a priority. Everything was immaculate both inside and out. You are literally steps from the beach - just down the back steps from the deck. The front of the house faces a beautiful lake that is inside the gated community. The gated community is great - the houses are all nice, the traffic is at a minimum. Kids are safe riding bikes. We took wonderful walks inside the community. There are three pools - all of them are nice and one of them is literally adjoining the property the house sits on. You can sit on the back deck and watch the kids in the pool. Everything has been thought of inside the house. Baby gates are supplied, beach gear, umbrellas, chairs, bicycles, garbage bags, night lights, coffee filters, spices, and the list could go on for a long time. Denise has thought of everything and provides it for her guests. We had one issue with a slow shower drain and Denise had it fixed immediately. The decking appears to be some kind of Brazilian hardwood (IPE?) and is not only beautiful and in great shape, but cooler to the feet than composite decking would ever be. The outside shower has an additional spray hose for hosing off your feet, etc. The locks are super secure. The washer and dryer are in the garage, which is huge. I can't imaging how you could make a vacation house any nicer. There is ample room for trash - two large trash cans right outside the front door and trash is picked up every day. The A/C worked fabulously. Carillon beach is a wonderful location relative to restaurants - you can get to Destin in 30 minutes or so and also Panama City Beach in 5 min. and Panama City in 20 min. So the selection of restaurants is fantastic. The gated community has stores, rental facilities, food, ice cream, entertainment almost nightly - a great community feeling. It is perfectly positioned close to the larger cities and also all of the small communities along 30A. We will have fond memories of staying here for years to come.

We're going back every year!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The fabulous Fairview cottage was just perfect for our family of 6 summer vacation. The location is absolutely perfect, right on the beach, big wide view of the gulf, and the lovely community pool directly next door. Even when you need a break from sitting on the beach, you can sit on the back porch and it feels like you're still right there. The home is appointed beautifully and has every amenity you could ask for; it looks and feels brand new. The breeze off the gulf, especially starting in the evening, is so relaxing from both the lower deck and upper deck. I cannot say enough about how perfect this home is.

Fairview provides OUTSTANDING VIEW

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at Carillon Beach, stayed at Fairview Cottage which is on the beach. It was outstanding! I was there with my wife, 3 daughters and 2 spouses. The seven of us never felt crowded and the house was in excellent condition. We had stayed at Fairview 9 years ago and it has been well maintained. The setting on the beach was incredible, enjoyed coffee in the morning and dinner in the evening on the deck overlooking the beach and ocean. The beach was not crowded like other areas on 30A, there was actually a fair amount of space between umbrellas. Carillon Beach is close to Publix and Winn Dixie (literally 5 minutes), and close to many restaurants and shops. I can't say enough about the Fairview Cottage and it's owner, Denise, who was always responsive to emails and texts in a timely manner. If you want a true, relaxed, beach experience, this is the place.

Great Property, Great Location, Great Beach Experience

  • 5 of 5

The house is well maintained, with extra amenities such as bikes, char coaler and toys for the beach. The owner keeps you informed of community activities and checks in with you but is not bothersome.

Best beach experience our family has had.

Can highly recommend and will definitely return when we come back to the Florida Panhandle.

Beautiful house right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house right on the beach. Convenient to supermarkets and restaurants so we didn't feel like we were in the car a lot. The beach is beautiful and having the pool right next door was fabulous. I could come right out on the deck and call everyone for lunch whether they were on the beach or at the pool. We had a one year old with us learning how to walk so the baby gates that were supplied came in handy and made the house extremely baby proof. Bedrooms were large and comfortable. The views from the house were fabulous. The beach out the back and the lake out the front. Very well stocked and the ice maker was a huge plus. Only a couple of negatives and that is the grill is charcoal and not gas. May not be a challenge for some but we only used it one time because it was not convenient. Some wine glasses would be nice as well as a non stick fry pan. The couch has seen better days and was not comfortable however, the owner did say they were getting a new one. The owner was very attentive and called a couple of times to make sure everything was okay. I would rent this property again and recommend it as well.
