About Ken Ross

Carillon Beach Resort Community and surrounding communities are as close to the most perfect vacation spot as we have ever found. We have vacationed on the gulf coast for several years with our children and grandchildren and have always had a wonderful time. When this home in the North West Florida Panhandle became available, we felt it would be a great place for our family and others to enjoy. We were impressed with its location in Carillon Beach which offers all the amenities one would want for a family getaway. We are excited to introduce you to or invite you back to the completely renovated version of Generations Beach House, a Beachfront Main House with Guest Cottage.

Luxury and convenience at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful home! Everything was easy and stress-free from beginning to end. Comfortable, clean, high-end throughout. Groceries only 5 minutes away; restaurants, shopping are close as well. It's a real delight to walk right out onto the beach! Perfect for a true getaway vacation. It really doesn't get any better than this. Highly recommend.

Perfect Fall Vacation on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our multigenerational family (4 adults, 2 teens and 3 children) recently spent a week at this beautiful beachfront home, and our experience could not have been any better. We have stayed in multiple homes in the area and this one was my personal favorite. The back house is really nice for a bit of privacy/separation, and the kids loved the downstairs "movie room." The master bedroom/bath/closet and balcony are so nice and spacious. The entire property is beautiful and takes full advantage of the beachfront view. Our very favorite activity was sitting on the main balcony to watch the sunset together each night. We also particularly like the Carillon Beach area. We've stayed in multiple locations along the gulf, and it is our favorite. Such a nice little community with everything (fitness center, grocery store, bike rental) conveniently located. We are already talking about returning next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are glad that everyone enjoyed a Fall week at Generations. That little bit of "separation" even in a large Beach house is great for our family too. We love sharing Generations with other families and are grateful that it is your favorite vacation home.

Fantastic accommodations

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this house and cottage back in July 2010 during the Gulf Oil Spill and enjoyed our stay there. We have stayed in 2 other houses in Carillon Beach since then. We decided to go back to this house again because of all the space it provides for our family. Since our first stay, the property has a new owner. He as completely renovated both the main house and cottage. Both properties are beautiful and very tastefully decorated. The renovations have brought the property back to almost new condition. My son and his family, along with his in-laws stayed in the main house while my wife and I stayed in the cottage. There was ample room for all 11 of us. Being right on the beautiful beach was great and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets each night right from the balcony of the main house. Carillon Beach is probably our favorite vacation spot on the Gulf Coast. It is beautiful, quite and well maintained. We are all looking forward to returning to Generations Beach House next summer.

Very nice beachfront house

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice beachfront property. You can literally walk down the steps and you are on the beach. The house is well maintained and comes with beach toys, boogie boards, puzzles, dvds, netflix, all the cable channels, wifi, and games. The kitchens are nice and well equipped. They supplied the towels, soaps, tissue, garbage bags, etc. Bring your own beach towels. We had 8 adults who all had their own bed. The pull out couch in the guest house was also big enough for adults if needed. The bunks are on the small side. They fit our 8 and 6 year old perfectly. The house is clean and the community is safe, secure, and well-kept. The pools are nothing special, but well kept. It is a 5 star property and location. The weather was awful while we were there. Out of 7 days we got one day of sun on the beach. It didn't just rain off and on the other 6 days. It rained hard and there was never a blue sky. This is unusual for this area I understand. It was just very disappointing to decide to go all out and rent the very nice and expensive house on the beach and mostly watch the ocean through the windows. This certainly isn't the owners fault. (They are very nice and helpful). It is the chance we all have to take.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and kind words. We are very sorry for the weather challenges you experienced. It is true as you mentioned that this type of prolonged rain event is very rare, especially in August.

Excellent property. Well-maintained and the best equipped we've encountered.

  • 5 of 5

The property accommodated our family of 10 very well. Great location on the beach; Carillon is a great community; and the house had everything needed to make for a fun and hassle-free vacation. Zero complaints.
