Bikini Bottoms provides an unique, fun filled beach experience like none other!
Designed by world renowned Dungan/Nequette Architects and showcased in the May 2008 Southern Living magazine, Bikini Bottoms is sure to put a smile on every face. Just steps from the sugar-white sands of the Gulf Emerald Coast (beach access is at dune walkover #2), every inch is creatively utilized in this non-smoking, whimsical beach home. The inverted floor plan has both bedrooms on the main floor (each with full private bath) and a large attached screened porch to enjoy every moment of Carillon Beach. The master offers a queen bed while the guest bedroom has three twins. Upstairs, you will enjoy the beachy blues and greens of the living room and fully-equipped stainless steel kitchen. The living room offers one of three HDTV televisions, a CD/DVD player, games, books, and everything to make your beach stay memorable. Ocean views, spectacular sunsets and al fresco dining can be enjoyed from the oversized 2nd level sun deck off of the living room. Bikini Bottoms has also features a secluded garden, gas BBQ and over 600 sqft of deck/porch space for enjoyable outdoor living.
Bikini Bottoms is in a prime location less than 23 steps from almost one mile of sugar white sand at Carillon Beach. No need to tolerate the Seaside or Rosemary traffic or cross 30A to get to the beach when you have all of the privacy and security of Carillon with the conveniences of a vibrant resort gated community.
Carillon, located just beyond the east end of 30-A, is a gated community of single-family homes located within steps of Carillon Beach, Downtown Carillon (shops and restaurants), Lake Powell and bicycle paths that will take you along the adorable beach communities of Rosemary, Seaside, and Seagrove, and several state parks. There are plenty of amenities at Carillon; including three pools (one heated, one gulf front Beach Club), two tennis courts, kiddie pool, basketball/sport court, bicycle rental and, of course, plenty of beach front to enjoy. Enjoy live music Downtown at 'Grooving on the Green' during summer, or listen to the music of the Gulf right on your own porch. Beach chair service is included (March 1- October 15) for your pleasure which includes two chaise lounge chairs and a large beach umbrella. Pier Park, the Emerald's Coast newest desination shopping/theater/resturant complex, is just a 10 minute drive away. See Links below for more information. Getting to Bikini Bottoms is now even easier with the opening of our new airport, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP).
For the quick grocery trip, Publix and Winn Dixie are just a 1/4 mile away. For added convenience, a washer and dryer are also included.
And for those of you who must 'work' while on vacation, you will appreciate the recent addition of WiFi high-speed Internet service. NOTE: Please plan on using your mobile phones, as there is no land line phone service at “Bikini Bottoms”.

We had a perfect week at the beach. We loved the short walk to the beach and the charming community. We enjoyed all of our meals on the sun deck. Thanks so much.
The interior of the property could be cleaner. Baseboards, blinds, fans and shelving were dusty. Floors needed mopped on the upper level.
Bikini Bottoms was a charming little beach house with almost everything anyone would need for an extended vacation. We enjoyed the screened porch area with the beautiful swing very much.The location and area was fantastic. Only a few steps away from the beaches and pools we enjoyed daily.
The only thing that was not so nice was, the bed frames were a little dirty when we got there....Sand and all kinds of hair everywhere and the carpets in the bathroom were dirty as well; other than that we had a blast. We did not want to bother the owner with those minor discrepancies, so we bought some cleaning supplies cleaned it up ourselves. More towels would have been nice because with a family of four and only six towels in the house along with daily use of showers and beach did not work. The outside shower was one of the better features of the house. Everything else was great and we would love to definitely stay again. We recommend this house to anyone with two to three kids because of the cool kids room and bathroom "small but comfy" as my daughters said. All in all one of the best vacations thus far.
Great Vacation rental for a a couple or small family! It's like living in a tree house! We've been to Carillon beach 5 times now. This was our first time staying at Bikini Bottoms. Great screened in porch with a wonderful porch swing. The only thing we wished they had were beach towels. Since we were flying we didn't bring our own! Lots of beach toys and floats to use. Loved that they had a Keurig coffee maker. Check in/check out was effortless. We'd happily stay here again!
We just completed our 2nd stay at Bikini Bottoms and enjoyed it very much. The rooftop porch was delightful as we enjoyed our morning coffee and also ate several dinners up there. We had a couple rainy mornings and loved having the screened in porch to keep dry but still be outside. And my son and husband used the outdoor shower daily, which they found to be a treat! We did have some mechanical issues with the air conditioner, but Jack responded to those quickly. It was also difficult to watch tv together comfortably in the evening with only a loveseat and 2 swivel chairs, but we were rarely at the house in the evening...mostly at the pool. The aforementioned reasons are why the rating is 4 stars instead of 5. The house is truly charming and stands out among the rest as an architectural point of interest. So all in all, with our family of four, the house was a perfect fit.
We enjoyed the upstairs deck area and grill and the screened porch area. The location is ideal because it's close to one of 8 beach walkovers. The beach house was bright and cheery; however, there were several things about the house that need to be updated and/or fixed. The lights on the upstairs deck were not working. The fan on the screened porch was not working. The TV was not working. We could not turn the AC downstairs below 72 and we were not comfortable in the late afternoon and evening. One of the toilets was stopped up when we arrived on Saturday. The owner called a plumber who did not come out to fix it until Monday morning. I let the owner know about these things but he did not seem concerned or even apologize for our inconvenience. He owns 2 additional homes at Carillon. Bikini Bottoms seems to be the least of his priorities. There are several other smaller homes that sleep 5 or less in this wonderful beach community to choose from! This is our third stay at Carillon Beach. We love Carillon Beach but I will not rent from this owner again.
Bikini Bottoms is a quirky, adorable cottage just a few steps away from the lovely beaches of Carillon. We love this neighborhood and have vacationed here for many years and always rent from this owner (they have more than one home). Very bright, lightning internet, great for a small family or couple with no kids. Our son, who is 6'6", was a little cramped in the bunk beds, so next time we will go back to our other favorite, Far Far Away (also same owner). Their houses are always very clean, well equipped and owners are lovely. Definitely recommend!
Just steps to a beach walkover and Lake Carillon and Lake Powell. Kids can ride their bikes and parents can know they are safe inside the property. Carillon is great for walking, running and biking. Playground, tennis courts and basketball courts. 24 hour gated community- no traffic. Outdoor summer concerts series and outdoor movies on Village Green beside Carillon lake. Lake Powell and St. Helen state park adjacent to Carillon Beach. Great fishing and exploring. Pier Park is 10 minutes away- More than 125 restaurants like Margaritaville, Tootsies, Five Guys, Cold Stone Creamery, Red Robin, Panera Bread, Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse, to name a few, shopping (Target, Dillards, Walmart) and 18 screen IMAX theater. Immediately outside of the 24-hour Carillon guard gate is a Publix, Winn Dixie and CVS Pharmacy for all of your needs. On-site Sunday Service, Weddings, Trivia Night at Castaways, Shipwreck store for souvenirs. Rosemary Beach, Seaside, Alys Beach, and Grayton Beach are close by.
