It has been a pleasure to be an owner of A Little More Fun since 2004 and offer it as a vacation rental. Co-owners live and work in the area and are easily available. For personal assistance, please click the "Send Email" button with questions. The calendar is up to date.

Favorite Features: No stairs, backyard pool and the Gulf of Mexico about a minute away. Dune Walkover #2 reveals the magical view where the sand meets the sea.

Abundant windows, ten-foot ceilings and hardwood floors are throughout. It's a delight to smell the salt air and feel the sea breezes on the front porch swing or the comfortable outdoor seating overlooking the pool.

Two bedrooms have queen beds; third bedroom has bunk beds. Each bedroom has its private bath and TV. Master bedroom has access to the outdoor, private shower with hot and cold water and complete privacy. Master bedroom also has porch access overlooking the backyard pool.

In season Beach Chair Service is included. Landline has Free Long Distance within United States.

Carillon Beach is a quiet, upscale, gated, BEACHSIDE village. A favorite walk is along the oak canopied promenade to 'old town' area which includes a chapel nestled in the trees by Lake Carillon.

Paved roads and sidewalks create a safe place for children to ride bikes and walk to activities. In addition to our own pool, Carillon Beach has a large, gulf-side pool, HEATED east-side pool, and west-side pool. Tennis courts, basketball court, water sports on the lake and a children's playground offer other activities.

When you are searching for a well-kept, safe, relaxing vacation spot with a gorgeous white-sand beach, this is it.

About Joyce Miller

It has been asked how someone in Colorado owns in Carillon Beach. Here is the story. My sister and husband are co-owners and live in the area. The three of us grew up in Panama City. My husband was career USAF and last assignment before retiring was in Aurora, Colorado. Over the years we lived near and/or vacationed at numerous well known beach areas. It became obvious that none compared with the beautiful Panama City Beach where we had grown up. The Carillon Beach community is a visual delight and it is a privilege to be part of it.

Joyce Miller purchased this house in 2004

Why Joyce Miller chose Florida

A Little More Fun is in a quiet location, with no stairs to climb, a quick walk to the beach and beautiful backyard pool. We loved having three baths including one with indoor/outdoor shower access. The spacious front porch with swing and backyard seating around pool are inviting spots to recharge and relax. Carillon Beach has strong appeal to us as a respite from an increasingly hectic world.

What makes this house unique

The co-owners have remained close to the home turf and do a great job overseeing A Little More Fun. Bobby is the nice guy in the Carillon Beach Real Estate office. (If you are interested in buying a beach property, he will be happy to help.) Martha is the friendly voice who can suggest ideas of things to do, where to eat or shop. She has an extensive Rolodex and the one to contact should you have an issue or question about the home. You will find having them nearby a unique benefit.

Love the floor plan of this property and enjoyed the porches and pool. Time to update furniture and main television in living room, but other than that a lovely, functional home.

Carillon Beach. Secluded get-away! Perfectly accurate overview of house and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house only a few steps from private beach! Everything was perfect if you like quiet and tranquility! The gated community was very secured and the officers were very friendly and informative. Coupled with the beautiful neighborhood was its own town square where you could rent bikes, dine, take in a private live music event. Our family felt very safe and the kids rode bikes and chased lizards throughout the neighborhood just like they were at home. You are provided your own reserved (by house name) beach chairs and umbrellas at no additional charge. All the chairs are in a single row. You don't have row after row of chairs and umbrellas obstructing your view like the public beaches at Rosemary, Seaside, Destin, etc. 3 community pools with one that overlooks the beach! We've been vacationing in the Destin/Seaside area for years and fell in love with this tiny hidden community 1 mile east of Rosemary Beach and 6 miles west of Panama City Pier Park.

This is such a lovely, comfy, roomy home! The dining area has a large round table that seats 6 with bar seating adjacent. The bedrooms are roomy with soft bed linens. We love the high ceilings and the private backyard pool is WONDERFUL! The outdoor shower is really great too! Love the little tree frogs that sing at night. The community is very quiet but has plenty to keep the kids busy. We used the basketball court and pools. With just a few steps away from the beach, it's simply perfect. We really want to live there!!

The owners answer immediately and even called the day of check in to orient us to the area. There are two grocery stores across the street as well as dining, gas stations, and a drug store. Everything is super convenient in a quiet area without the crowds down in PCB. We cannot wait to go back!!

My family stayed in this house and we loved it. We did have some electrical and pool problems, but the owner was quick to come and take care of them. It delayed our plans a little bit for the day. We loved the pool we also loved the outdoor shower. They do need to updated a few TV's all the bedrooms all had to share a remote. We would rent this house again. The owners with very nice and replied quickly even though they were dealing with a sick loved one. Only bad thing vwe would like to have a had maybe a free day for all of the problems.

Could be great

  • 4 of 5

The neighborhood is wonderful and location of house is excellent. Very close to beach walkover. Nice having a pool, if the pool had been clean. Pool cleaner showed up and we couldn't use the pool last couple days due to chemicals. Waterfall feature doesn't work. There is no shower in main bedroom. You can, however, walk through the sliding window in the bathroom to use an outside shower... Only TV that isn't a tube model is in master bedroom. Has plenty of towels and kitchen service. Nice swing on front porch.

Owner's Response: We are grateful for the opportunity to clarify several points in this review. 1. The pool is cleaned, stabilized and chemicals added once a week. Guests are requested to stay out of pool for 3 hours following service. 2. As far as we know, waterfall has not been broken. 3. Master bath is unique with indoor garden tub and access to a nice outdoor shower with hot and cold water. It is enclosed on all sides allowing privacy. Several guests have pointed out this is a favorite feature of the house. Thank you for the nice comments about the location, porch swing and furnishings. Your feedback is appreciated and we were happy to have you come last July.
