We provide beach towels, as well as a baby bed(small portable), pack-n-play, and high chair.

The home is a short 4 minute stroll, down picket fenced lanes to the beautiful private white sand beaches of this fabulous gated community.

The community is ideal for biking, walking, and running. Other community amenities include a chapel, a bell tower, 8 dune walkovers to the private beach, a coffee shop, a restaurant/bar, and a general store with bicycle rentals, all within this 24 hour manned gated community.

About Rodney/Robin Hawthorne

After seeing Carillon beach featured in Southern Living magazine 12 years ago, we made our first visit. We quickly realized we had found the perfect community for our family to enjoy forever. With our five children, and now grandchildren, we look forward to spending our vacations and holidays at 'Our Little Dream Cottage' in this paradise community. We hope that we can create the same experience for our guests.

Rodney/Robin Hawthorne purchased this house in 2012

Cozy Beach House

Wonderful beach property. Very clean and well stocked with linens, towels, etc. Great property with kids. Pool located right next door and wonderful screened porch overlooking pool. Enjoyed the fire pit in the back as well. Would definitely rebook this house in the future.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at My Little Dream Cottage (MLDC) for, I believe, 3 years during the week of July 4th. We've been visiting Carillon for 7 years or so. We love this community and we love MLDC. We truly feel at home here. Carillon is so peaceful and quiet. While other communities on 30a have their perks I'm sure, we enjoy the beauty, serenity, and security of Carillon. And, we just love MLDC. If we ever have the pleasure of building a beach house, we will use a blueprint of MLDC. MLDC is roomy, open, and airy yet cozy and homey. The kitchen is open amd there's ample living and dining space. Our extended families vacation the same week in other homes at Carillon and we've enjoyed hosting cookouts and seafood dinners of 19 people comfortably at MLDC! The front and side porches act as extensions of the living areas. We begin and end our days rocking in the rocking chairs on the porch. During the day, the porch is the perfect place to warm up and dry off from the pool or beach. The bedrooms of MLDC are spacious and the two king beds are so comfortable. The master suite is especially accommodating with a humongous closet that could almost act as a 4th bedroom (we set up a pack n play for our 10 month old in the closet and still had room to walk around). The 2 bathrooms are also large and luxurious with spa tubs and showers. Ceiling fans are in each room. In the back of MLDC, there's a shower, firepit & chairs, and a storage shed. The home is well-stocked with plenty of pots, pans, plates, utensils, etc. There are tons of towels and beach towels, which is such a wonderful space saver for your suitcase! There are also movies, games, and books. Another big help, especially for those with kids, are the other items that are provided including a high chair, pack n play, air mattress, cot, wagon, bikes, pull cart, baby float, beach toys...the list goes on and on! MLDC's location is also ideal. The home is immediately next to Bellview Park, which includes a pool, baby pool, basketball court, playground, tennis courts, and lawn. The pool is just steps away! And, don't worry! You can't hear a peep from the pool. MLDC is also near my favorite part of Carillon: the Promenade, a shadey walkway through Carillon to the Chapel & shops. The Promenade is simply beautiful, with trees arching overhead. MLDC is a scenic 5 minute walk past the Carillon bell tower to the beach. Lastly, the owners are a joy to work with. We love MLDC and are counting down the days until we return!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything needed for your vacation except your food. It is located just beside a swimming pool and only steps to the beach. It is very well stocked with beach and bath towels, linens and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. One of our favorite places at the house was the front porch and side screened in porch. It is very kid friendly and good for any handicap or elderly persons. . The only steps are the ones at front porch and back deck which are only 3-4 steps. The owner was wonderful to work with. We hope to stay here again and would definitely recommend it.

The kids rented bikes to ride to the beach crossovers. I would suggest if you have anyone in your party with a disability that you rent a golf cart for your stay .

An amazing week in an awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

My Little Dream Cottage, exceeded our expectations in every way! Dream Cottage was plenty big, clean and well maintained, and was very well furnished! We loved the proximity to the beach and to the pool which was right next to us! The owners were responsive from when we first showed an interest in the house, throughout the whole process. I guess the best thing we can say about it is, we plan to return to the same house next year. We made a week of wonderful memories at Dream Cottage. I wholeheartedly recommend this house to others!

Romantic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a great location. This house is clean, cozy and the perfect getaway for any couple, family or "Girl's Trip"! Large kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms and beautiful decor make for an enjoyable stay. Enjoy morning coffee or evening cocktails on the lovely porches. Also for cool evenings gather around the fire pit located in the back just off the screened porch. Just a short stroll to beautiful beaches or if you are not up for the beach the pool is right next door! Tennis and basketball courts are also footsteps away. On the square of Carillon there are several restaurants that we walked to and the food was delicious! What a great beach community! We can't wait for many more trips to this beautiful home!
