The screened porch faces the Bellview park, the largest of the three community pools with a kiddie pool, adjacent to the basketball and tennis courts, and the playground. Gather around the wonderful fire pit on the back patio if visiting in the cooler off seasons.

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. While at the beach, resort style lounge chairs and umbrella are set up daily for your exclusive use. (Mar-Oct). Back at the house, an outdoor shower makes the cleanup after the beach a breeze. 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. This community is safe for kids and families to walk and ride bikes through out. Carillon is located just 20 minutes from Panama City airport (ECP), 2 blocks from two major grocery stores, and just a few miles west of the impressive 'Pier Park' that has shopping, movie theaters, bars, restaurants, live music, etc. Carillon is adjacent to Rosemary beach and only 7 miles from Seaside but without the congestion and traffic of 30-A.

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

Awesome time staying at 'My Little Dream Cottage'

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at this wonderful property. We chose this property specifically because of the excellent location to the pool and playground. We loved the convenience of being able to walk out of the front door and right to the pool in 15 seconds. The house had many excellent appointments including three extremely comfortable king beds, strong WIFI, large TV's in all needed areas. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked with anything that was needed for meal preparations. Finally, the owners were a pleasure to work with. Having stayed in Carillon Beach several times, these were the best folks we have dealt with. They were attentive, informative and punctual with refunds.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property.

A gem of a beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from "My Little Dream Cottage" even though we hated to leave this perfect gem of a house! The home is well-equipped and comfortably suited our party of 6 adults and 5 kids under the age of 10. The location near the community pool was fantastic, and we were within a comfortable walk to the beach walk-overs. Inside the home, the kitchen was well-equipped with all the cookware and tableware that we needed during our stay. The appliances are top-of-the-line. The beds were so comfortable, and we all slept like babies! For the littlest one, the highchair and pack-n-play came in handy. Working with Robin was the best experience I've had through VRBO over the dozen or so houses we've rented throughout the years. Great experience and beautiful home!

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.
