About Pat Zimmerman

We are a retired couple with a wonderful close and extended family who love the Beach House and we all spend as much time together as possible. Our house was built not only for our comfort but also for the kids and grandkids in mind. Some of our children are now grown and their children are now sleeping in our new full size crib making wonderful memories.

We are there when you need us.

Why Pat Zimmerman chose Laguna Beach

The beauty of the complex,the family community (9 grandchildren still spend some of their vacation time with us at the beach ), having our own beach house with our own walkover to the beach and watching the sun go down. It doesn't get any better.

What makes this house unique

Not logging stuff to the beach, magnificent views from our living room, master bedroom including guest bedrooms with a view of Lake Carillon, Just sitting on the deck watching children digging there way to somewhere (who knows) while we enjoy a time out sitting on our covered deck and getting out of the sun for while and may be having a refreshing drink with friends and family.

You will not be disappointed

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying a week at this house. Through the many beach vacations over the course of nearly forty-five years of marriage, we have loved staying in many houses, but this house is so lovingly decorated that we felt immediately like we were at home. The many personal touches throughout the house made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. We were there with our children and four grandchildren, ranging from 2 1/2 to 12 and none of them wanted to leave. Everything is designed for families who want to be together without having to pack a lot of beach and swim toys. The close proximity of the gulf-front pool and the beach make a very delightful combination. The house was very clean, thanks to the wonderful housekeeper. We made many family memories and will treasure this vacation as one of the best. Thanks so much for allowing us to be at home in your beach house!

My 3rd Family Vacation to The Beach House in Carilon Beach, FL

  • 5 of 5

Our family had "the perfect" FAMILY vacation in Carillon Beach. The weather could not have been better and the accommendations exceeded our expectations. The pictures do not due it justice. Each bedrooms is "ensuite" which offers privacy and comfort for the everyone in the group. The location on this sandy white beach is perfect for dolphin viewing (and we saw quite a few swim by) and relaxing with morning coffee. The home is well equipped with every need and them some. Pack light and head to "the Beach House". My 4 year old grandson and 7 year old granddaughter were able to play on the sand directly outside our deck while we sat comfortably and watched.

The gated community is safe from passing cars which offers additional peace of mind.

Pack a few swim suits and have a wonderful trip.

The BEST Family vacation home on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding stay at Pat and Vic's beautiful home for Fall Break with our 4 young children.

This home could not be any better placed on this beautiful beach, and wonderful community. The home was wonderfully decorated, very well equipped for our large family, with everything you could possibly need. Bring some clothes and you really are good to go here! The master bedroom has a beautiful view of the ocean from the bed. I actually looked out of the window one night to see a falling star while laying in bed!!

The patio overlooking the beach was large, and close enough that we could trust our 5 and 7 year old's to run around in the sand a bit while we could watch and shout to them from the table while finishing dinner! The patio sound system was great to listen to some Bob Marley while getting some shade for a break in the day. We even got to see a protected sea turtle nest "rescued" and baby sea turtles right in front of the house!

There is a beach side pool just one house down, and 2 others ( one heated) in the gated community. The heated one is a short walk away that has a great basketball, tennis, and playground area for the kids.

I selfishly debated sharing the reviews of this place, knowing that it could lead to it being even more difficult to arrange rental, but they deserve the business!

We will be back!

Owner's Response: What can we say other than thank your for the wonderful review. We love families such as yours. Did I mention we have 9 grandchildren and they make vacation time with them fun and memorable. More importantly Vic and I are delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay and sincerely hope you all come back to view a few up dates we worked on this winter. Carillion finished the Gulf pool and it will be open within the next week. Our best to you and your family. Sincerely, Pat and Vic

The Best; Beach Area, Beach House and especially the Owners!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place we found this fall at Carillon. From the first initial email to the last the owners always answered and we were given great information. We LOVED this beach house. 3 Couples shared without a problem and a 4th could have come along with the lower level being utilized. This home is beautifully equipped and the owners are very comfortable with sharing their things. You can pack pretty light for this rental. The view is stunning and the beach (toes in the sand) is literally 21 ft away from the balcony. (6m for Canadians). The resort offers food choices and a bar along with a coffee shop for the morning. We were at the bar twice and it was comfortable and pretty laid back. Lots of TVs for you sports or Bachelor shows. S

The umbrella fellow set up the chairs each morning with the pads and the beach was cleaned and dragged each day. We were attending a wedding and it was a perfect setting. We walked to each venue as the wedding was on the beach. Very easy walking the area every day. It is gated and has 24hr security so no worries about safety at night or for children.

All in all a great, wonderful, spectacular, relaxing place to spend some time by the Gulf. In the area are lots to do with most being a short drive. 5-15 min. Grocery stores are right at the corner, easily walked and a couple of nice restaurants are nearby. The owners have some very comprehensive documentation on all the area amenities, golf reviews, and restaurants. We used some of the recommendations and they all panned true. That was very helpful.

We would definitely stay again sometime soon but the available weeks here, I know, go fast and the owners enjoy their beach house themselves and who wouldn't. Remember to book ahead and hopefully the weeks are open for you. You will not regret renting this beach house. It is a place to make memories. Sunsets are right out your window and still Free!!

Cheers from cold, snowy Canada.

Our Little Secret

  • 5 of 5

Hi Pat & Vic,

I just wanted to thank you again for sharing your home with us. We had the most amazing week at The Beach House and the weather was absolutely perfect every day!!! I keep telling everyone we meet in Carillon about how much we love your house and how it is so family friendly, but now I’m thinking we should be keeping it our little secret;-) We have plans to take the kiddos to Disney next year, but we plan to be back again in 2016…can’t wait!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I would just like to say how wonderful is is to be able to stay at the Beach House. You could not pin point a better location as Carillon Beach is 15 minutes away from the airport, 1/4 mile from the grocery store, two doors down from the pool, and 8 feet from the sand. The layout of the home is perfectly set up so that our family was able to bond and at the same time have our own space for sleeping, getting ready, etc. You could not find better people to work with then Pat and Vic, as they could not be more accommodating and available for all of our questions and needs. The Beach House has everything you need in having an absolute perfect vacation. This is the place that you will always come back to whenever you can! Thanks so much Pat & Vic
