Denise Smith purchased this house in 1994
I built this home between 1993-94. Unique property that is GULF FRONT, RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THE GULF FRONT POOL COMPLEX, AND HAS LAKE CARILLON IN FRONT OF IT! ONE OF A KIND PROPERTY! Must be seen to be appreciated!
TOTAL rest and relaxation! The cottage is COMPLETELY stocked and generously so, with everything you can think of to make your vacation the best one you've ever had!
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.
We enjoyed spending 4 days, 3 nights at Fairview Cottage. The home was perfect for the three of us. The view of the water and the sunsets is mesmerizing. Carillon Beach is gated, private and quiet. October is a great time to be there. We'll be back.
This was our second time to stay here an won't be our last. We love this little slice of beachfront heaven. The location cannot be beat - right next to the beachfront pool, across from the lake and directly on the beach. We've stayed in eight different houses in Carillon Beach and this is our favorite by far. We'll definitely be back!
If this place wasn't on the beach I wouldn't stay there again necessarily, but it is ON the beach, like you can throw something and hit your friend on the beach from the porch. With small kids you can't beat being that close to the sand. House had a million beach toys and accessories, easy access to the pool, great porch with shower, nice master suite upstairs with second porch. Carillon Beach also has great playgrounds walking distance for kids.
sheets weren't very comfortable for the money we paid and wouldn't stay on the king mattress very well;
kitchen is a little cramped and had some pretty sad pots/pans and utinsils, but we made due just fine (location made up for this);
couch needs to be replaced--it's uncomfortable and seems old;
washer/dryer is in the garage, which is two steep flights of stairs from master bedroom, so if you have several small kids and tons of laundry, it's kind of a hike; also our clothes smelled like dead fish really badly after washing them (I still have a dress of my daughter's that smells horrible a month later, very strange.)
The master bedroom is over the pool and there are no curtains on the two small windows, so light comes in from pool and people can see in the windows if they look hard enough (the sliding glass doors in master bedroom do have curtains of course and the view is amazing, which made up for the smaller exposed windows).
The TV, VCR (yes, seriously), etc. is very out-dated. We just didn't watch it at all, but seems like for the money they could update just a little. We couldn't even plug in the AppleTV that we brought with us...
We ate in Rosemary Beach, which is about 2 miles away. I would prefer Whole Foods, but Publix was sufficient.
House was clean, just needs new sheets.
Overall, we had an amazing time and would probably go back because you can't beat the location, and with some updates to sheets, couch, and entertainment center it would be a spectacular place.
Another wonderful week at the fair view cottage. This is our 5th year coming to Denise's cottage & we love it more every year. What more could you ask for? It's beach front, right next to the pool, cleaner than my house has ever been, & it's in gorgeous Carrilion.
There's no place like Carillon Beach. As a Florida native, I've always known the Gulf Coast beaches were among the most beautiful in the world. I could not put a price on waking up to the sounds of the shore and spending my time relaxing in the white sand! This house is perfectly located in the quaint neighborhood, walking distance to restaurants and shops and next door to the (always clean!) pool. I'm excited to say I've found my yearly vacation destination!
