About the property

4 Brm, 3.5 Bath, Pool & Spa, Steps to Beach, 4 Beach Chairs with Umbrellas

This relaxing & fun Carillon Beach Main House with Cottage has been totally remodeled! The spacious interior features an expanded and renovated kitchen, all new furnishings, new mattresses (3 King, 1 Full, 1 Twin), 5 new flat screen TVs, new rugs, new art, new outdoor furniture, and fresh paint in both the Main House and Cottage. The Next Generation has relaxing casual decor similar but with its own unique visual elements of our Beachfront Carillon Beach home, Generations (VRBO 297087).

The main house has 2 upstairs bedrooms, each with a king bed and private baths. A sleeper sofa in the living area provides a bed for 2 others. On the first floor in the main house is the newly remodeled kitchen, living area, dining room, and half bath. There is a separate staircase to the tower that boasts a view of the Gulf. The upstairs balcony, also with a Gulf view, and the downstairs screened front porch span the entire width of the house making both great outdoor rooms for enjoying morning coffee and visiting with family and friends.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms with a shared bath. One bedroom has a king bed and the bunk room features a twin over full bunk bed. There is a mini frig, coffee maker and microwave in the cottage. The front porch of the Cottage overlooks the pool, fountain spa and surrounding patio.

The Next Generation Beach House is only 64 steps from the private Carillon Beach walkover that takes you over the protected coastal sea oats to the sugar white sand beaches of the Gulf. Lounge in the 4 beach chairs with umbrellas provided for all guests from March until mid October. Relax in the private pool and spa conveniently situated between the Main House and Cottage. Have a quiet morning coffee on the Cottage Porch overlooking the pool with fountain spa. Enjoy Carillon Beach sunsets from the tower balcony. This inviting Beach home with Cottage provides the perfect vacation venue for everyone!

There is something very uplifting to all the senses acquired during a vacation to the Beach that seems to endure.

Ideal Vacation Home for All Ages

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at The Next Generation. This is our 3rd home in 4 years at Carillon and there is no doubt that it's the best one yet! The beach is literally steps away, which is ideal for quick trips back to the house whenever necessary. However, what makes the house unique is having our own pool and hot tub to go home to if/when the beach is too cool, windy, etc. It was also such a treat to have the pool and hot tub in the evenings as we enjoyed gathering around it to share some more time toghether as we grilled and made dinner. In the past, this would have required a trip out to the public pool, which is not ideal or as much fun.

Additionally, the house is a very short walk to the tennis and basketball courts, park, and downtown area. At the same time, it's on a very quiet street and away from the most travelled roads.

The house has the most amazing interior with the most comfortable beds and linens along with large HD TVs in every room. Additionally, there were ample new towels in every single one of the 4 bathrooms. The kitchen is roomy with lots of space to store food and is equipped with all of the dishes and necessary cooking/baking tools.

The owners are very nice and responsive to all communication. It was a pleasure working with them!

We loved this house so much we locked in our return stay before the week even ended!

The Next Generation is a special place to stay while at Carillon! You will love it!!

We couldn't ask for a better, more beautiful vacation with our family. Ken and Pat go out of their way to make sure your stay is nothing short of spectacular. We are already discussing which week we will arrive next year! Just perfect!

Vacation Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this amazing property! Our group consisted of 2 families of 4 and The Next Generation is a beautifully decorated, very well stocked, relaxing gem that made our vacation a dream! It's is situated steps from the beach and also has the major bonus of a great private pool and hot tub that we used every day! Along with enjoying the beautiful private beach we played tons of tennis and enjoyed our many trips to all of the fabulous restaurants and shops a few minutes drive away on 30A. Whether we were enjoying our morning coffee on the lovely screened in porch, reading a book on the beach surrounded by the sounds of the surf, curled up in front of the fire in the so cozy living room or lounging in the private pool and hot tub, we were so relaxed. And this home was even more fun for our kids! We loved that our children ( ages 7 to 14) could safely ride their bikes all around Carillon Beach and even make their daily candy or icecream run to the shops right in the neighborhood- sweet! The Next Generation at Carillon Beach boasts a beautiful private beach (with lounge chairs already set up) steps from your front door and also many pools (either beachfront, by the tennis courts and playhouse or other pools tucked around the neighborhood) - just perfect for children and parents alike. Our kids also loved the lookout at the top of the main house - such amazing views! We loved the layout of having the separate 2 bedroom house for our family that was just a step away from the main house ( literally a step away) It was so nice that the 8 of us could be together all day but tuck into our own cozy spaces at night. Our kids loved the roomy, comfy bunk beds in their room and we were beyond thrilled with our fabulous king sized bed in our spacious room! We also loved the special touches like the microwave and coffee maker in our master so we could enjoy a cup in bed before starting the day. The mark of any great vacation is how sad we were to leave and The Next Generation did just that! We can't wait to return to our new home-away-from home. We are so thrilled we chose this amazing property for our vacation and cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you, Pat and Ken, for making this such a lovely, welcoming, relaxing home we can't wait to get back to!

Great house and service!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 10th year at Carillon but our first year at the Next Generation House. This was a great house and layout for our family and the pool was a convenient bonus. The house was super clean when we arrived and was ready for check-in even a little bit early - another bonus. There were a couple of issues that arose that needed tending to and Helen, the house manager, was on it immediately. What a great asset I can see she is to the owners. And speaking of the owners, Mr. Ross very responsive to our questions as well during the reservation, and promptly refunded our deposit within 48 hours. I give this property 5 stars and highly recommend it if you are planning to visit Carillon Beach.

Great home with a great and quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

Really great home with a small private pool. Very nice kitchen and natural gas grill. Ken checked in with us by phone to confirm everything was OK. Don't forget to order some homemade pie from Ken's recommended local friend (peanut butter, Dutch apple, and key lime were AWESOME!)

AMAZING week at The Next Generation beach house!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing week at the Next Generation beach house!! The stay far exceeded our expectations. The house is beautiful and spacious and met our every need. The proximity to the beach is awesome.......being able to walk back and forth from the house to the beach was perfect. The pool and the hot tub was such a bonus. Our family LOVED the beautiful and pristine beach but then the private pool/spa was also a delight. The cottage was a perfect fit for our family......our married son has three children and the bunk beds were exactly what we needed. The kids loved them!!

The house was immaculately clean, the kitchen was fully stocked and that ice maker was a dream!! We prepared many meals in the home and the dining table comfortably seated the eight of us. The neighborhood is so quaint and homey. We made a lifetime of memories in the Next Generation beach house!!

Thank you Ken and Pat for sharing your beautiful home with our family!! You were wonderful to work with!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and kind words. We are excited that you and your family enjoyed The Next Generation Beach House. Many guests like you have commented how much you loved Carillon's award winning Beach. Partly to do with location as one of Florida's Northwest Gulf Beaches, the almost mile long sugary white quartz sand forms an almost perfect backdrop for the blue azure water of the Gulf. Although it has been a vacation mecca for generations of southerners, many national and international guests are just now discovering Carillon Beach's quiet, relaxing and fun Beach, homes, community and lifestyle.
