Panama City Beach House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Why Ken Ross chose Panama City Beach

We enjoy sharing our home with others. If you like an active vacation or if you simply want to relax, we want our home to provide both. It is located in a fun community with a quiet beach. Carillon Beach is gated and has 3 community pools, tennis courts, basketball court, 2 lakes, fitness center, spa, downtown shops, and restaurant.

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.

Very, Very nice home and as advertised was close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at ‘The Next Generation’ home at Carillon Beach. It was exactly as advertised and close to the beach. We not only used the beach but the pool at the home, which had shadow for most of the day, was also used extensively in the heat of the day. We ate as much fresh seafood as we could while there. The owners were very response throughout the whole process.

We would HIGHLY recommend this property.

Best week ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Next generation is such a beautiful home and we had an incredible time this week. The owners were amazing to work with! They made sure our every need was met so we would

Have a great week! We had an unexpected death in our family the day before we were supposed to leave and the owners graciously worked with us and allowed us to come a few days late and stay a few days longer since the house wasn't being used the following week, so that we could stay and enjoy a full week with our family after such a sad loss! It was exactly what our family needed after such a sad previous week and the Ross family was so generous to work with us on that! The house is gorgeous as well as the carriage house and it fit our family perfectly! All the beds, even the bunk beds were so comfortable! Usually I don't like traveling bc I don't like to be away from my bed but these beds were so comfortable, I slept great every night! Also, the ice maker was broken but they had ice delivered to our front porch every day!!! So not necessary but was top notch service!! It was also so nice not to have to bring a pack n play or high chair for my baby! They provided all of that! Those are the little

Things that make the biggest difference! We will definitely be back! We are already looking at the calendar now for next year! The pool in the back yard was a home run as well! Our girls woke up every morning and were able to go straight to swimming while we cooked breakfast! I can't say enough good things about our stay here! It was remarkable! We come to 30-a every year and have never been to carillon, and this so far was our favorite

Stay! Everything was so quaint and clean and safe with the gated community and security guard! We will be back for sure!!!!!

This was the first time our family has taken a vacation together and it could not have been more perfect. The house is so spacious with wonderful amenities - 2 master bedrooms in the main house, balconies everywhere, screened in porch, fully equipped kitchen, pool, hot tub, attached guest cottage, steps to the beach, 4 chaise lounges and 2 umbrellas set up on the beach daily .... and all we had to bring were beach towels!! We loved everything about The Next Generation and plan to come back next year. Thank you Ken and Pat and Helen!
