This is our 8th stay at Carillon Beach and our first stay at The Stork's Nest. I put in a last minute request to about 7 houses in Carillon, and the owner at Stork's Nest was always the quickest to answer my questions. He also made the process of payment simple and easy since we were booking so late. I felt like he was just an email or phone call away the entire stay if we needed him.
The house was absolutely beautiful, spacious and comfortable. We've stayed in many homes in Carillon, and the open large living space on the main floor was by far the best I've seen. The kitchen was well stocked, everything was clean, and the beds were comfortable. I LOVED the large laundry room on the ground floor with access to the outdoor enclosed shower. This made it so much easier to keep sand in one place and not tracked through the entire house. The third floor tower was a great added bonus. It had covered seating (which isn't always the case with towers in Carillon) and a beautiful view of the community, sunsets and even a nice glimpse of the ocean. It also had three other large patio/deck areas complete with chairs and even one with table for eating. I also loved the large back yard and covered back porch. We didn't use it much, but we didn't feel like we were on top of the house behind us.
Another favorite thing about this house was it's LOCATION. Of course, beachfront is always our preferred location, but we can't always afford it. But, Stork's Nest was a perfect location for this trip. I LOVED the proximity to the beach. I think it might have taken me less than two minutes from the time I walked out the door until the time I was lounging in my beach chair. I love that the assigned beach chairs for this house are very close to the walk over. Super convenient when you're hauling towels, sand toys, snacks, frisbees, fishing poles, etc. We also like to be close to the West Pool at Bellview Park. The bike ride there was short and easy. I felt comfortable letting my preteens go ahead of me.
Thank you so much Ben and Faye for letting us enjoy your place. We hope to be back soon to The Stork's Nest! God Bless!!
We recently had the opportunity to spend 2 nights at the Stork's Nest while attending a wedding at Carillon Beach. We have rented many, many houses over the past 20+ years coming to the Destin area for summer vacations, but this one would definitely be one of the best we have chosen. It is actually more beautiful than the pictures, and feels more like someone's home than a vacation rental. The proximity to the beach can't be beat, and there are even chairs/toys to use in addition to the chairs already provided on the beach. The owners are most gracious and a joy to deal with. You won't be disappointed!
We loved the Stork's Nest! This was our 2nd stay in Carillon Beach and we will be back again ASAP! This is our very favorite community along the Gulf Coast! The house was in a fantastic location - 30 steps to the walkover, outdoor shower and hoses conveniently located to maximize every minute of your beach time! A comfortable and happy house for our family!
This is a great house, very well constructed and very nicely finished. Very clean, looked and smelt freshly painted. Plenty of living room and plenty of privacy. The house is nicely furnished, beautiful wood floors throughout with everything you need, nice outdoor shower area/sand room, nice yard, too many outdoor porches to mention, unique staircase to the 3rd story observation area (The Storks Nest), and even Wi-Fi. The location is extremely convenient, 2 grocery stores a liquor store and a pharmacy are about 2 minutes away, its about a 4 minute drive to Rosemary beach, 10 minutes to shopping in Panama City, 10-20 minutes to Seaside/Seagrove area... and the house is 2 just houses from the beachfront. We have stayed in the area several times, from Destin to Panama City and prefer this area. We will defnitely reserve again for future vacations.
Kiteboarding, There's plenty to do, and this is also the perfect place to just relax and do nothing! Read a book, feed the seagulls, watch the beautiful sunsets with a fruity drink, this is the place to regain your peace of mind
