If I could give six stars I would . Beautiful home meticulously decorated but yet homey, comfortable and very clean. The beds and bedding so comfortable I wish I could take home! Kitchen had absolutely everything (except a shot glass??). As others said, pool and beach a stones throw away. My first trip to the area and boy was I impressed with everything! Adults and kids and grandkids all had a blast and we are sad to leave tomorrow. I had a concern prior to our trip and owner was so communicative and friendly. Plan to,repeat this trip in 2019. A big thank you for opening your home to us.
Our stay was wonderful and will be back again. We had 4 adults and 2 kids(6 & 3 years old). Here is what stood out from the other houses we have stayed: bikes,extra beach chairs & toys, outdoor shower with warm water, screened in porch, right across from pool, close to walkover 7, lots of seating, washer/dryer, huge driveway for extra cars. We didn’t feel overcrowded at all. We will be back again!!!
This is our 3rd time at Carillon and this home was by far the nicest! Very clean when we arrived with everything we needed. The location is right by a pool and a block from the beach walkover. On a dead end street so our kids could bike without much worry of traffic. We stayed for 2 weeks and could’ve stayed longer!!!! Will definitely choose to rent this home again in the future!
This house has everything you need. A well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, and a tv in every room. We usually rent a golf cart but it wasn't necessary for this house because you are only steps away from the pool and beach access. We have stayed at Carillon many times and we always enjoy our visit. This house was our favorite thus far!! Karen, the owner, was so helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had. Highly recommend!!!
This was our third year in this home, it’s always excellent!!♥ï¸
We had a wonderful week in this amazing home in an incredible neighborhood. Will be back!
Summer Breeze is such a beautiful house within steps of the heavenly white sand and crystal blue waters of the Gulf. Our families enjoyed staying here and were quite impressed with the community and amenities of the property. I would definitely recommend this house and hope to stay here again!
We had another wonderful week in your home last week! The weather was wonderful, and each minute was enjoyed. We all loved the new colors and coffee table in the den.
Thank you for providing such a special place.
Wonderful home in pristine condition.
We had a great time and the home was lovely. Close to the beach!! The bedrooms were perfect with king size beds!! Games for the evening. Wonderful time!
Our family really enjoyed the week we spent in Summer Breeze. The home is beautiful and well-appointed, with everything we needed. Lots of room to spread out, which was nice with 4 teenagers. The location was fabulous, with the lakeside pool just across the street and the #7 walkover just a few houses away. With so much to do in the community, the boys were never bored. They really enjoyed riding the bikes that are available. The beach chairs provided in season were also enjoyed. We had a wonderful vacation. I'm sure we will try to come back.
Summer Breeze is a beautiful home. It's well appointed with special decorating touches and all the extras for a perfect stay. There wasn't one thing we didn't have that we needed. Across from the pool and so close to a walkover was a bonus, too. You certainly won't be disappointed staying at Summer Breeze.
Excellent property! And it really does sleep 10! We only traveled with our family of 6 but have stayed in other homes where it says it sleeps 10-12 and it barely accommodated our 6 and was 'cramped'. Summer Breeze TRULY would sleep 10 and still have ample space! And with children - that is a must! :) Everything you need is on site- you truly feel as though it is your home away from home! Everything was perfect. Karen was amazing in communicating with us and every need we had was met at Summer Breeze. We LOVE Carillon Beach and think if you visit other beach communities, you will know why. We did leave one day to visit friends in Sea Grove and the water was beautiful however it is very crowded and very touristy feeling. If you are looking for a clean, private, secure and well maintained beach community that feels like HOME - Carillon is it!
We so enjoyed your vacation home. You really have thought of everything anyone might need while on vacation. The proximity to the beach and pool were perfect for us. We had little ones (even an infant who celebrated her 3 week birthday while at your home) and it was a quick, easy walk to the beach (and such a nice bonus to have two chairs and an umbrella waiting for us). It was so nice to travel with little ones and not have to lug a high chair, pak-n-play, umbrella stroller, beach toys and books. You even had sippy cups and a bottle brush! The kitchen had everything we needed to make family meals. We were 3 families, 2 teenage boys, and 4 kids under the age of 4 (12 total). Everyone slept comfortably and there was plenty of seating for hanging out. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Summer Breeze, and would highly recommend this home.
We had an amazing time and loved the house! very convenient to beach, pool and lake!
This was our 14th year to vacation at Carillon Beach. We thoroughly enjoy the easy access to the beautiful beach, the pools and the convenient access to restaurants, food stores, the quiet community, etc. I bring my children and grand children to Carillon every year to relax and enjoy beach life for a week. We always look forward to our visit. Of all of the properties in which we have vacationed, Summer Breeze may become one of our favorites. The location, across from the Lakeside pool is super convenient. Access to the beach is also very convenient. We particularly enjoy the eastern side of the Carillon Beach property...quiet with limited traffic. Your home is lovely...nicely furnished and very well appointed. The furniture was very comfortable and there was plenty of seating for our 9 adults. The kitchen, though a bit small, has everything we could possibly need to keep everyone fed and happy. In fact, it is one of the best kitchens we have seen. It is very well stocked with everything required for a functioning kitchen. We particularly appreciated the started amounts of paper towels, toilet paper, spices, coffee, etc....a very nice touch. The bicycles are a great...plenty to go around and in good condition. Saved us a lot of time and money not having to rent for the week. We enjoyed the gas grill...used it several times during the week. This may sound silly, but we also enjoyed the circle for the cars in the backyard. We have three cars and a golf cart. In other homes it seems that we are always having the shuffle cars. The circular drive in the back works wonderfully...no car shuffling. Finally, the part of your home that we probably enjoyed the most was the screened-in front porch. It was our gathering place each evening to enjoy a drink and rehash the day! Karen, you have a wonderful home! Thank you for allowing to enjoy it for the week. We will be back.
This was our first time visiting the Gulf Coast but definitely won't be the last. The house was immaculate- from the layout to the decor to the appliances, everything was of the highest quality and super clean. My family and another couple with our 5 kids combined had plenty of room. The beds were extremely comfortable and the entire home was roomy but cozy. Towels were provided and there was plenty for the 9 of us. There were 4 beach towels, a couple of beach chairs, floats, toys and a beach umbrella provided as well. Summer Breeze has 2 beach chairs with the umbrella already on the beach which was an awesome perk- saved us $145 rental- and you will definitely need the shade if you spend much time on the beach. The location of this home was absolutely perfect- only a short walk to the beach walkover and directly across the street from one of the three pools on the property. There were 6 bicycles provided by the house that were parked in the driveway when we pulled up that quickly became the kids favorite part of the trip. Because the community is gated, we let the kids ride the bikes to the other pools or the basketball courts and didn't worry about their safety. They had more independence on this trip and therefore had a lot more fun. There was a grocery store right behind the house and plenty of restaurants in the area. It was never crowded at the beach and we spent plenty of time there. This was an awesome vacation and we definitely would stay in this house again.
Karen, just wanted to drop a note and let you know we had such a great week last week in your beautiful home. We have been coming to the Florida panhandle for 20+ years. Your home is by far the best stocked and comfortable home we have ever vacationed in. We did have quite a bit of rain, but with the screened porch and large family living area we had plenty of room to play board games, watch movies and enjoy our family time. Thank you for sharing your home, we will be back!!!!
My family and I have been heading to the beaches of Alabama and Florida for over 50 years. We kept going back to the same places but my husband passed away recently and I desperately needed to start a new memory. We did much research and found Karen’s place Summer Breeze. It looked and sounded too good to be true. Most of the time, the pictures of a place can be deceiving. We decided to take a chance and booked it! It was the gift of a lifetime! Eleven of our thirteen were able to go, so we loaded up the cars and our trailer and headed south. The drive into the area was amazingly beautiful!! Everything is landscaped to perfection, white lights are strung over all to shine at night, the bell tower plays beautiful music on the hour, there are cafes, ice cream, gift stores, bike trails, walking trails, covered beach walkways, church services, musical concerts and etc etc etc! The house was more beautiful than the pictures! It is one of the few houses with a surplus of parking spaces, and they even let us park our trailer at the hotel. The house is a real home. Karen is a real friend as well as the owner. She emailed us often with eating suggestions, shopping places, and ideas of things to do. She answered my questions each time I emailed her. She is so thoughtful! There were great bikes for us to use, ocean toys to borrow, books for all ages to read, kitchen accessories for large families, two beach chairs with an umbrella to use at the beach, and supplies to get us started all around. The kids played in the “super cool” 3rd story loft. The rooms were large with terrific neighborhood views and great bathrooms. She had equipment for all ages from nursery to adult. The pool was right across the road from the front porch, and the beautiful beach walkway was less than 100 yards away. It is quiet, sweet, and friendly. Trash was collected each day, which amazed me. The homes are all so different, so particular to the owners that walking in the mornings was a real treat! We had a big rainstorm, which was enjoyed by all sitting on the only screened in front porch we saw around! Karen has 10 chairs on that porch! The biggest compliment was when we got home, each one of my daughters said they missed the house most of all...and we are an outside family!
We just returned from an amazing week at Summer Breeze. Our family of four wanted some space to spread out for a week and pretend that we live at the beach. I spent many hours online searching for the perfect beach home and perfect beach community, and we all agree that we found both in Summer Breeze. First, the house is immaculate and well appointed. We had everything that we needed, in addition to many extras that are not typically included in home rentals. Small details like hand soap at every sink, beach towels, dishwashing detergent, garbage bags and starter coffee supplies (including K-cups) really added an extra touch. Beach toys, a gas grill and even a couple of beach bikes made us feel right at home. The community of Carillon Beach is very impressive itself. Off the beaten path enough to feel secluded, but close enough to restaurants and stores that you never hesitate to run out for a few supplies. Publix and CVS are less than one mile from the house. We found some great restaurants very close by, including our favorite breakfast place The Donut Hole. The owner of Summer Breeze is wonderful to work with and very responsive to inquiries before and during the stay. I would definitely recommend Summer Breeze to my friends and will certainly stay here the next time we return to the area.
We had a fun, relaxing vacation and enjoyed staying at Summer Breeze. The house was very clean, well appointed overall with all the kitchen utensils/dishes needed to enjoy a relaxing meal at home. We enjoyed the screened-in porch and cooked out on the gas grill. Great location near the beachwalk to the beach; across the street from the pool and overlooking Lake Powell. The 2 chaise lounges and beach umbrella made our days on the beach more comfortable; the beach attendant put the cushions and umbrella up for us daily. We would recommend this beach home to others who are looking for a special time away with family or friends. Thank you to Karen for ensuring our vacation was going well and for being attentive to all of our needs. We had a great week at Summer Breeze!
Was a great house, best one we've rented there ! I think we have found our home away from home!! Thanks!!
This is our third time to stay in your beautiful beach home! We have a better time each year. The accommodations are so clean (rare in most house rentals); the beds are comfortable for all; the kitchen is well-equipped (too many of us to eat out much); plenty of room for breathing space. My favorite space is the upstairs balcony porch. It is a good getaway for reading, relaxing, or just looking at the beautiful scenery. The proximity to the pool and beach rates high as selling points for your property. You can almost touch the pool (just across street), and the beach is one minute to the walk-over. Part of my family loves staying at the pool, and part loves staying at the beach! I could go on and on about your home. Thank you so much for another wonderful family summer vacation!
The house was beautiful and was very roomy. We had a wonderful time, riding bikes, grilling out, spent the day at the beach every day stopping at the pool across from the house every evening.
Our stay at Summer Breeze was incredible. Our boys were on the go the entire week and we were comfortable letting them roam the complex on their bikes. We had several friends with children staying on site. They all had a wonderful time. The house is very well equipped and we didn't lack for anything from home. Everything was in perfect working order. We highly recommend Summer Breeze and plan to stay there again.
You will not be disappointed renting this beautiful home in Carillon Beach. The house is located steps away from the pool and beach. It is beautifully decorated and sleeps 11 people comfortably. Enjoy drinks on the screened in front porch or coffee in the morning on the open air deck on upper level. I would recommend this house 100%, it's even better than the pictures. The owner was responsive and helpful. Thank u for sharing your beautiful home with my family.
We loved our first visit to Carillon -- this beautiful home has just a quick walk to the beach and the pool is right across the street. With all the comforts of home, we truly relaxed and enjoyed this vacation! The Publix was easy to get to, and Rosemary is just a short car-ride away. Our family loved the beach, dining, shopping, and snorkeling (St. Andrew's State Park), and can't wait to go back!
This was our first visit to Carillon and we are so glad we found Summer Breeze. It was a great house for two families with four teenagers. Plenty of room for everyone! The boys loved riding bikes to play tennis and basketball, and the girls loved hanging out at the beach (which was beautiful and not crowded). The owners were great to work with, and Karen even went out of her way to try and help us get some items we left behind. Can't say enough great things about this rental!
This is our third visit to Carillon and second stay at Summer Breeze! It is such a wonderful beach home. The location is the BEST...right across from the pool and steps away from the beach walkover! I can't say enough about how clean it is! Also, it is so well equipped for cooking in and cooking outside! The whole Carillon environment is such a pleasure and provides such a wonderful vacation for my family! Thanks again for sharing your wonderful home!
Summer Breeze was a great house for our family of 10. It is very nicely decorated with a wonderful large screened porch as well as a great inside living space with two sitting areas. The kitchen was very well equipped. It was convenient to the pool (right across the street) and the beach. The beaches are really beautiful and uncrowded at Carillon.
Summer Breeze was an excellent choice for our group. We had plenty of room to spread out and have our own space or get together in large living area with two sitting areas. One of the three pools was right across the street and very convenient. One of the best beach walkovers is right at end of street and was an easy walk from our front door, great view of water from upper two floors of beach. Lakeview and pool view from all three floors. Everything we needed was provided for, and Ms Helen and owner was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions, even following up on our return home to make sure all went well. Plenty of beach chairs and toys in deck-box on side porch with two beach chairs reserved for us daily. Our family made many happy memories this trip and we couldn't have been more pleased with this wonderful beach house. This was our second visit to Carrilon Beach and it will not be our last, we love it so much here.
Great house, close to beach walkover and pool. Perfect for our family (2 adults; 2 kids under 8).
We visited Summer Breeze during Spring Break, 2015 with our adult children and their spouses. The house was beautifully decorated and clean!!! Great floorplan allowed everyone to be together without being on top of one another. Loved the location...just steps to the pool and the beach. The outdoor shower and the grill were two great features! Thanks for allowing us to use the beach toys and the beach towels!! Just a couple of the great details that made the stay awesome! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with our family!!!!
My husband and myself rented the home for a week to get away from the Illinois frozen tundra. The home is even better than the pictures. The neighborhood is great with many pools and tennis courts. The pools were not heated and with the temperature just making the high 60's we were not able to jump in but did enjoy sitting pool side for some sunning. The house has some bikes but my husband and I are tall and did not want to change seat heights of bikes. In the village , they have a place that has bikes that you can rent but they were not open yet for the season. We enjoyed our walks on the beach which is just a quick walk from the house. We did rent a Harley for 2 days from the Panama City Beach Harley Davidison and enjoyed our trip to St. Joe Port one day and then headed to Destin the next day. We would recommend the Summer Breeze to everyone. Karen is very helpful and responsive to any request.
We recently returned from our family vacation at Summer Breeze! The home is beautiful and filled with lots of extras, the location was perfect for us, and we spent a lot of time on the screened front porch!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home. It was a perfect vacation!!

The excellent experience started with a exploratory conversation with the owner that sold us on the house. When we arrived we all said wow to the warmth of furnishings, location to the beach and one of the three pools, parking for multiple cars without blocking the view of the house and abilty to easily accommodate all of us. My wife and I truly enjoyed coffee on the veranda on the second floor master and all enjoyed the screened in front porch at the end of the day evening even during the brief rain we had one day. The kids and grandkids enjoyed the convenience of going to the water sports activities near by and the beach pier where they say a dolfin up close. Our grandson said this vacation was better than Disney. We were impressed at the convenience of having lunch out in near by very fresh seafood restaurants. The house location was so close to the beach where we enjoyed the beach chairs and umbrella that it made it easy to go when the kids and adults wanted to spend time on the whitest of sand beaches and without being crowded. The pools (two of which we swam in) were clean and again not generally crowded. The house was immaculate and the kitchen fully equipted to allow us to prepare our dinners. The kids loved the boogie boards provided. We were impressed that all of the bed roooms (except one) and the third floor "den" had balconies for sitting outside again for ambiance at the beginning or end of the day. The overall property was kept uncluttered looking and made us feel like this was truly a home not a resort for us. We were impressed with how clean the area was and felt very comfortable with the secruity for our grandkids of being a gated community. We look forward to returning again and having looked at some other homes in the community know we picked the best of the best for us. We hope you enjoy your vacation as much as we did and the Summer Breeze.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Summer Breeze! This is a beautiful home, nicely decorated, and it has everything needed for a great vacation ! The location is excellent and I hope that we can rent it next year. We had ten members, including four children and we were all pleased. Thank you for sharing your home!
My family and my sister's family recently stayed at the Summer Breeze in Carillon Beach. It was by far the best vacation we've been on!! The house was amazing! We had 9 people and were very comfortable. We spent every morning on the front porch visiting:) The location was perfect - right across from the pool and only steps from the beach. We really couldn't have asked for a nicer place!! We are already planning our next trip to Carillon Beach! Can't wait!!!!
I had seven days of "heaven"! The home was beautifully maintained and spacious. It looked just like the pictures. I especially loved the lower screened in porch (perfect for quiet time or hanging out with the family). The house was beautifully furnished and all the beds were comfy. With the exception of running to the grocery store, we had no need to leave the property. The house had everything we needed, i.e., tons of towels, cooking utensils, pans, glassware, etc. The pool was right across the street and the entrance to the beach was only steps away, so we pretty much did both each day. There were also two reserved cushioned chaise lounges on the beach with an umbrella which everyone fought over. They also had extra beach chairs, umbrellas and towels at the house, so we had plenty for our group. The beach was awesome! Clean, white beautiful sand. We never got too hot, as there was always a constant breeze. While the complex had three pools, we typically used the one across the street, but did enjoy going to the main pool as it was right on the ocean and had great views. I definitely recommend this property and am hopeful that we can get it next year!
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Summer Breeze. The pictures do not do it justice. It is a very well kept and beautiful home. My granddaughters loved the pool across the street. We had great weather the whole week, so the beach which is not that far of a walk was perfect. It was not crowded. The homes in the village are all wonderfully kept. It is very convenient to Panama City's shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend Summer Breeze, and so does my family. The girls did not want to leave.
We stayed through the Memorial Day week 2014. It comfortably sleeps 11. The pictures do not do it justice. It is beautiful. The owner, Karen, was very easy to work with. The property was immaculate. The walk to the beach really is short and the walkover is beautiful too. We took some pictures there overlooking the ocean. The pool across the street was especially enjoyed by the parents with small children for close proximity and restrooms. The bedrooms/bathrooms were all very roomy. The two living areas and dining table allowed us all to congregate together. The kitchen had everything we needed (and we cooked a good bit). The gated community provided a layer of safety that was nice. The security staff are diligent and very friendly. This is a very nice, upscale community. We renewed our vows on the beach and the front gate was very accommodating to our few guests. I would definitely recommend this property. It does not disappoint. It is very close to 30A. We always go to Red Bar in Grayton Beach. We ate at the Donut Hole, Summer Kitchen in Rosemary, Bud & Ally's taco bar in Seaside. The Publix across 98 was very convenient and the bakery makes a delicious cake. Some of our family took the Dolphin/Snorkel cruise and got to swim with the Dolphins! The guys played Hombre golf course. Goatfeathers in Seagrove Beach has great shrimp to take home for lunch or a snack!
Warm and wonderful home for friends and family at Carillon. Close to the beach, tucked in the neighborhood next to the pool overlooking the lake. Great views, expertly decorated with plenty of room. The owners were a pleasure to work with - flexible and made us feel welcomed. The entire family was able to enjoy all the options available here - fishing, running, tennis, bike riding, great restaurants, shopping, cocktails at sunset, and best of all - the white sands beach! We'll be back for sure.
First, let me say that Karen, the owner, was very pleasant to work with! This home looks just as it does in the photos, and the two living areas give plenty of seating for large groups. Each bedroom has a king-sized bed and it's own bathroom, which makes it perfect for 3 couples. Walking to the beach is a breeze, and the pools are in walking distance as well. There is a view of the lake right outside the front door! After walking around the whole neighborhood, we decided that this house has the best parking! There is a huge circular drive in the rear of the house! Not many homes in Carillon can say that! We would definitely love to go back to this lovely home!
