About The Owner

Large family with 6 children from St. Louis and quality time with our family is our top priority. We love to keep active and enjoy walking or riding bikes in the morning around the community. We have built this house as a place we can share with our friends and family for years to come and the design was very important to us. We feel we have a true slice of paradise here and want to share it with everyone we can to make those outstanding family vacations. We have been coming to the Panama City Beach / 30a area for most of our kid’s life and have rented many houses/condos and owned a condo for a number of years which we factored into the building of this home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2016

Why The Owner chose Laguna Beach

Unique benefits of this house: Life’s a Beach is one of those beach homes that takes your breath away the moment you walk through the door. With every inch thoughtfully considered and no detail left unnoticed, our beach home offers the ultimate getaway. Designed for our large family in mind, it is ideal for multi-generational family vacations. We hope you will enjoy the calming neutral décor, showcasing colorful art and oceanic-blue pops of color. As one of the largest houses in Carillon, with six bedrooms in the main house each with their own baths and add on the two-story Guest house with 2 more bedrooms, full kitchen, living, laundry and 1.5 baths. This allows for some of that key private time sometimes needed for those large groups. With seating for over 20 in our well-stocked kitchen and dining room, it is perfect for catching up with friends and family after a day at the beach and pool. The 3rd floor has a tower room complete with a Wii, Smart TV, sleeping area with walk in Closet, full bath and a walk out tower balcony with a breath taking view of the gulf. The 3rd Floor is our son’s favorite hangout when not out around the pool.

What makes this house unique

We were sold on the setting knowing with the lot and a half it would allow us for more than enough room for our houses and garage (key for bikes and toys – please use at your own risk) but still provides a great backyard / pool setting - truly a little oasis and just a short walk to the beach. We have enjoyed Carillon Beach for many years and hope you will love it too! Please check our calendar for availability for your next dream vacation today!

First, but not last

  • 5 of 5

We had an exceptional experience! This was our first trip to the area. Thanks to our great experience, it won't be our last. The owner was very courtesy, responsive and professional. The home is HUGE, bedrooms and beds were spacious and comfortable; home is clean, modern and decorated tastefully. Grandparents appreciated the first floor master; kids loved the gaming system upstairs and pool; the cooks were envious of the kitchen, highend appliances and two grills; and we all enjoyed the large dining area for family meals.

Conveniently located in the "beaches" strip, we found the grocery, golf courses, drug store and restaurants were easy to get to with not much traffic. Easy drive from the ECP airport too. We also appreciated the beach chairs, umbrellas and bikes all included.

Stop looking, book it! It will not disappoint!

Fabulouse Home for large group!

  • 5 of 5

Life's a Beach has it all! Lots of room to spread out, almost all rooms have some sort of balcony, pool for the kids, high end appliances, we even had Alexa to ask questions or play some music! Tara is a great manager who responds quickly to any and all questions. Beach was only a 5-8 minute walk and there were 6 beach chairs waiting for us when we got there. If you want a beautiful home for your family to stay at, then Life's a Beach is it!

Perfect Place for a Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Carillon Beach and it was great! The home is huge and has a great layout especially for (5) families. Not to mention this place also has a guest house and it’s own private pool. There were also additional options for us if we decided to not hang out by the private pool. We had a reserved spot on the beach (lounge chairs and umbrellas) as well as the community pools. The owner also provided bikes and toys/games. Everyone loved the time spent here, it was definitely the best place we’ve stayed at in Florida. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking in the area. Lastly, if you have any questions the owners rep (Tara) is very responsive and courteous. Thanks for making our trip one we will never forget!

Beautiful home, excellent layout, and well stocked kitchen for large family gatherings!

  • 4 of 5

Our daughters wedding was on private property in Youngstown, with no accommodations close by, this place was worth the drive. Housed all our immediate family, and there is a hotel on the property for those only staying a night or two, with everything you need in walking distance. Hosted an after wedding brunch, which was perfect!

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars, is the raccoons getting in the garbage were such a nuisance, and picking up garbage daily was not on my planned agenda. Tip, you must print your emailed info and give each guest a copy, didn't feel it was necessary with smart phones, but security gave us a very hard time. That being said, the property was super safe for the kiddos!

Owner's Response: Hi Monica, Thanks for the review. Sorry about the Raccoon Inconvenience, that has never been a problem in the past and we are actively looking into solutions if it comes up again in the future. Yes, the gate pass we provided in the welcome letter does instruct you to print the gate pass voucher because the front gate attendants need a hard copy to be kept on file. I apologize if the gate was an inconvenience. Typically guests have 3-4 cars total that need passes throughout their stay and it is not an issue. In your situation, with 15-20 different cars needing access into the community each day, I can see where that would be a challenge. The gate guards are just there to make our community the quiet, private & safe environment that it is. Hopefully you had the perfect wedding vacation at Life's a Beach that you can remember for a lifetime! Sincerely, Tara

Breathtaking & beautiful, but so comfortable and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home. It was absolutely perfect for the bridesmaids house. Spacious, modern, and fabulous. My husband and I stayed in the guest house by the pool which provided us lots of privacy during the week. Carillon Beach is truly one of the best kept secrets in America.

Christmas lights had just gone up when we arrived—it looked like a winter wonderland. Our host, Tara, has been a doll. She kept us updated and informed all along our journey.

Those who came to the wedding and those who were in the wedding all said they are coming back to Carillon Beach to vacation here. This place is quiet, but absolutely pristine. You only hear the bells from the Carillon bell tower during your stay ☺️. We will be back. Thank you for allowing us to stay. Our daughter had the wedding of her dreams in this beautiful beach front community. ❤️
