Laguna Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

That's the decision you'll have to make every moment you are at BeachCastle. Right turn out the door and your steps away from tennis or the heated pool. If your desires change the next time, make two very short lefts or hit the pig run, and a mere 2 minute shuffle away is one of the best and, now, biggest beaches on the Emerald Coast. With BeachCastle's location now in perspective, please consider staying at our property in the beautiful, gated, Gulf front community, of Carillon Beach for your next family vacation.

Built in 2006, BeachCastle is a modern home, featuring beautiful nautical themed decor, appointed with hard wood floors, granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. This is a spectacular home elegantly decorated.

Spend evenings grilling your favorite surf, turf or veggies at 'Buoy's 'Cue' located at channel marker '7' in the backyard, or if your tastebuds desire, head out to one of the many fine local restaurants.

Relax on one of seven decks, or gaze at the breathtaking Gulf views from the luxurious crows nest bar, the 'No Wake Zone'. As you ascend, please obey the 'Slow No Wake' area, remember 'Boats Keep Out', and watch for the slow moving stone crabs.

Walk to the quaint downtown for pizza, dining, music, drinks at the blues shack, coffee, ice cream, shopping or the free concerts on most Monday nights!

The home of white picket fences and shaded, leafy paths, Carillon Beach is a relaxing, family-friendly vacation destination. Kids can safely walk or ride their bikes throughout the community.

If you need a break from the sun relax inside while checking your e-mail on the wireless internet access, or enjoy StarZ and other expanded cable choices on the widescreen TV.

Free beachfront cabana and umbrella are steps away and yours to enjoy during your stay.(3/1-10/15)

Memories of peaceful stunning white beaches, and beautiful breath taking sunsets are yours forever at BeachCastle.

As a nautical vacationer, keep in mind the phrase 'Red, Right, Return', so if you get lost while navigating the streets of Carillon, always remember BeachCastle is located between channel markers '4' and '7'.

Happy Vacationing.!!!!!!!!!!!!

About Don Malinzak

As a retired software engineer, I dreamed of establishing a residence on the wonderful beaches of Florida's Emerald Coast. Now living in the South and being only 6 hrs from my property, I've completed my dream. Please enjoy BeachCastle as my family has and will for years to come. The community is great for families and the beach is spectacular.

Don Malinzak purchased this house in 2011

Why Don Malinzak chose Laguna Beach

As a Carillon visitor for years, my family and I came to love the peacefulness of the community and the close proximity to the vast white beaches, neighborhood pools and tennis courts. The area outside Carillon is not congested, and offers all the staple shopping necessary for a vacation week. A short drive east takes you the shopping and nightlife of PCB. A short drive west takes you to the action at Seaside. With BeachCastle located in between at Carillon, and internally located close to the beach and heated pool, makes it a prime choice for the vacationer wanting variety and tranquility.

What makes this house unique

BeachCastle offers a panoramic view on the third floor crows nest, along with close proximity to the beach, pool and tennis courts. The floor plan offers a downstairs queen bedroom with full bath and private deck. The second floor offers the master with a clawfoot tub, large shower and private deck. Also another queen bedroom exists with large shower and private deck. Sandwiched between are the hall bunks for your young ones. All rooms have HD flat panel TVs with cable. The living room has expanded cable for your movie and sports viewing pleasure. DVD players exist in all bedroom and living area. Music can be played in every room from the living room entertainment center. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances compliment the modern kitchen. The nautical interior decor coupled with the outside channel marker hosting 'Pete the Pelican' and, of course 'Bouy's Cue' complete the amenities for a very Happy Vacation.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were extremely pleased with the home, and with the excellent customer service from the owner. We can't wait to come back!

Great location, gorgeous home, great people to work with. My family enjoyed all of the pools, each with its own unique qualities. We were just a short, fun walk from the beach. We highly recommend this home for your stay for vacation.

Beach Castle

  • 5 of 5

Thank you again for allowing us the use of your "BEACH CASTLE". It was really hard to leave on Saturday morning. The whole family had a wonderful time. This was our first experience with renting a house for a vacation and everything worked out wonderfully.

The grand kids really enjoyed the beach and we were rewarded with sightings of some beach creatures. We observed a ray of some kind, not sure exactly which one with about a 2.5 foot spread. As I have zero experience with marine environments, even though I teach high school biology, we also saw a sea turtle which was about the same size. Numerous small fish, (no idea what kind) and my daughter-in-law swore she saw a shark approximately 3 feet in length in the surf but i missed that one. We brought home many small shells and did the night ghost crab walk. Thanks again for getting the AC up and running on the second floor.

Fantastic vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week-long stay at the Beachcastle. The home had everything we could have possible wanted or needed, including comfortable beds, a fully-stocked kitchen, and plenty of toys for the kids to use at the beach and pool. The beach is a very short walk away and one of the three pools is just across the street. Carillon Beach was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed exploring the shops one afternoon and listening to live music on the green. I would enthusiastically recommend this home to anyone and we are looking forward to visiting again soon!

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Beachcastle was wonderful. The neighborhood is so quaint and the beach is amazing with emerald water and white sand beaches. The house was perfect - beautiful decor, clean, functional, and we loved the top deck in the evenings. It is literally just a block to the beach and very close to a pool. The owner was great to work with and provided very helpful information for restaurants, golf courses, etc. I loved the location, as it was just a short drive to Panama City Beach to the east and Rosemary/Seaside to the west. We will definitely be back and I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking!!

Great early summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental in Carillon beach. The house was decorated very nice and extremely clean, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. We were a very short walk to the beach and it was beautiful! We rented a golf cart, just to tool around the neighborhood. I truly loved this vacation and I am looking forward to coming back again. I would highly recommend this rental!

A great rental in a great community! As first time visitors to Carillon, we were very pleased with the privacy of the area. Carillon is it's own private village, but close enough to enjoy activities in Destin or PCB. The home was fantastic. Beautifully decorated and convenient to the beach, pool, and downtown area.
