About Ken Ross

When our kids were growing up, we often vacationed in Destin and Ft. Walton and loved the area. We fell in love with, some say, the best kept secret in Florida, Carillon Beach, and find ourselves wanting to be at the Beach as much as possible. When we can't be there, we love sharing Celebration Generation with others to enjoy.

Ken Ross purchased this house in 2014

Why Ken Ross chose Florida

When we first saw Celebration Generation Beach House we were immediately stunned by the large wrap around porch and balcony on the Gulf side. Inside is a large 5 bedroom 5 bath home extremely close to the Beach. We fell in love with it and the location.

What makes this house unique

One of the unique things about this Beach home is that it is all in one structure with no Guest Cottages or other dwellings that might cause tension among family members.

Absolutely amazing! Everything was perfect. The home is beautiful and has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The home is as luxurious as a 5 star hotel. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, and all the beds were very comfortable. My son loved the 3rd floor. He had the whole floor to himself. The gameroom area and the sleeping area were wonderful.

We spent a lot of time on the great front porch. You walk less then 20 steps and you are at the beach walkover. We could not have asked for a better to stay and enjoy our vacation. We look forward to coming back!

Thank you for allowing our family to stay in your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the awesome review! We are excited that you enjoyed Celebration Generation! I still believe the front porch is 10 degrees cooler than anywhere else. It seems that it always has a sea breeze. Please do come back soon!

The property was updated & well maintained.Remember some bug spray for sunset watching and evenings.

  • 5 of 5

3 families stayed together. There was enough room for adults to be comfortable. The third floor was a great surprise. Even though the 4 twins shared a space, each bed has its own headboard and storage. Each space was roomy. We had a problem with the back door knob, but it was addressed immediately by the manager. She was very helpful and took care of the problem immediately.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. Many guests have commented positively about the 3rd floor! Families can create such awesome memories at the Beach in a large Beach house together. For the adults to have "their" own living space (on the first floor) and the kids to have "their" living space (3 floors up!) just seem to expand those memories even more at Celebration Generation.

Couldn't have asked for better!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this house. Seriously. First off, it is located in the perfect location. You walk out your front door and there is the walkover to the most beautiful beach. It was perfect. The community the house is located in is the perfect little beach town - especially for those with small children. We felt safe, it wasn't too crazy, and everyone was friendly.

The house itself is so beautiful. I think the pictures look great, but the decor and amenities are even better in person. No expense was spared by the owners in equipping this house. The appliances are top notch and the the beds are all so comfortable. The tv's in every bedroom and the living areas are hiqh quality.

We had 3 generations with us - my husband and I with our 3 children (5 year old and 3 yr old twins), and both sets of grandparents. We all had a wonderful rooms and no one felt like they got jipped with the 'bad room'...they all are amazing!

Just a few ideas for those with small children, go to The Hub one night for their 'backyard party', and go to the little restaurant in 'Downtown Carillon" for lunch or breakfast. There's a giant green space the kids can run around in while you eat. Its a small little restaurant that cooks your food once you order (so might be a little slow) but the burgers were wonderful!

Overall - like I said, I cannot say enough wonderful things! We will hopefully be back! Oh! and Ken was great to work with - always quick to respond with any questions!

Beautiful and could be perfect... if...

  • 3 of 5

We loved this house. We have stayed at Carillon every year for 18 years and this is one of the prettiest and roomiest houses we have stayed in. We were very excited when we arrived to see how perfect it fit our family and the space it had. Beautiful windows in kitchen made us want to never eat out. It was beautifully decorated and could be in a magazine.

The only reason it doesn't get a perfect score is because of the problem with roaches. There were 6 dead roaches in kitchen when we opened the door to enter and we had hoped it somehow was an oversight by cleaning crew. We also noticed upon arriving, a very strong smell of insecticide but upon wishful thinking we discussed it could possibly be a cleaner smell of some sort.

But we quickly saw, especially in the only downstairs bathroom, that this smell and the evidence of roaches was a huge problem when we saw the evidence on the white towels under sink... as well as the crawling bugs in drawers and floor.

The first 2 days we had to remove our items from this bathroom and stop using it. We called the wonderful manager who quickly came over and cleaned bathroom and replaced towels and apologized. On the 4th day of our trip the pest control came to spray the outside because the owners didn't want it sprayed inside. I understand the reasons sometimes with little children , it may be worrisome... but this is a definite issue that needs to be addressed. But we have stayed in many houses and this Is the first time we have ever encountered this issue.

Several crawled on the floors while we watched tv and always were in the bathroom the entire week. It did diminish our enjoyment for the week after paying so much to stay here, but if this can be corrected , it is a perfect house.

Owner's Response: We're glad that you loved Celebration Generation. Thanks for bringing the dead bugs to the manager's attention. We again apologize for your having to deal with them. We've taken action to correct the challenges you experienced. The manager did call the exterminator as soon as she was informed of it. After she promptly cleaned the inside area she followed up daily with the exterminator. We have addressed the belated response by the exterminator which is inexcusable. Hopefully the new exterminator will be more responsive. Please accept our heartfelt apology!
