Two, If By Sea, a beautiful Florida style cottage designed by architect Gary Justice, is about 500 feet from Beach Walk Over #1 and the white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. This cottage is loaded with charm and amenities throughout. Beadboard, whitewashed floors, and double swings on the big front porch are the setting for the quintessential southern vacation. The two bedrooms upstairs are outfitted with queen sized beds, built-in televisions, have their own baths, and both open onto a quaint balcony that overlooks the heavily landscaped front yard. Downstairs, an open living/kitchen concept is furnished in a casual coastal style with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. The half bath off of the kitchen is an eye-catcher with blue glass tile floor and is fitted with a galvanized bucket for a sink. This bathroom opens into an outdoor private shower, good for rinsing away the day's sand or showering beneath the stars. Two, If By Sea has a beautiful yard with a white picket fence. The pergola at the front entrance to the property houses a quaint turquoise picnic table, perfect for a morning cup of coffee. If you want to go exploring and leave the car at the cottage, request the two beach cruiser style bikes and travel about in old-fashion style.

Carillon Beach is our home away from home. We love to go and really and truly get away from it all. It feels secluded and yet it is less than 10 miles from the bustling Pier Park in Panama City Beach and 2 miles from the storied 30a corridor, home to Rosemary Beach and Seaside. The community of Carillon has its own Market Street featuring shopping, dining, a fitness center, spa, and yoga studio. There are regular concerts and movies on the green during the summer months. Two, If By Sea guests have access to 3 swimming pools (one on the beach and two that are heated), tennis courts, a basketball court, a newly renovated playground, 8 beach walkovers, it's all here.

Whether you are looking for a romantic retreat, a home-base for an action packed vacation, or a place to relax and restore, look no further than

'Two, If By Sea'.

Comments from renters:

We've stayed in several houses in Carillon and 'Two, If By Sea' is now our favorite! We loved the front porch swings; the decor in all of the rooms, the personal touches! The flat screen tv was a big hit too! What a great house! Thank you! We sure hope to stay at Two, If By Sea again!'

The Ellis family

'We fell in love with Two If By Sea. After everyday, we would come back to this wonderful house and relax. We shared many laughs on the front porch. Thank you for allowing us to share your home.'

Thank you for the blessing of this house!'

About Kim Dodd

Our family has lived on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida for over 30 years. Several years ago we found a place at Carillon Beach. It was a quiet slice of what the beach is for our family, a place to gather and relax in a charming and old-fashioned community.

Many a day as I walked our dog through Carillon, I looked longingly at the charming little guest cottages scattered about and thought wouldn't it great fun to be able to share the magic of Carillon with others. Here we are, six years later; my dream has come true and I am opening the doors of my little Florida style cottage for others to come and begin a life together, rest and reflect on a grand life together, celebrate a new life soon to come, or just celebrate the beauty of life.

My business, Southern Serendipity, invites you to come and experience southern hospitality in a magical place.

Why Kim Dodd chose Sunnyside

Our Company, Southern Serendipity, is all about hospitality. Two, If By Sea is sweet and charming and is a throw-back to old Florida, and yet, it has fabulous amenities! If you are looking to experience something wonderful--a honeymoon, a babymoon, an anniversary, an unforgettable get-away, we would love to create that moment in time for you. I have a servant's heart and would love to get to know you and tailor your experience at our charming Florida-style cottage, Two, If By Sea.

What makes this cottage unique

Think of Carillon Beach as Seaside without the traffic. And that's really true. The architecture and community planning is similar, renowned architect Lloyd Vogt was Carillon's town planner. Because it's a gated community, the homes don't experience heavy traffic. The public is welcome to enjoy the downtown area, but the streets are relatively quiet. We love the proximity to the bigger city attractions in Panama City Beach and Destin, and the convenience to Seaside and Rosemary.. but once you're here, there's really no reason to roam! Add to that, wonderful pools, a playground, tennis courts, a lake with paddle boarding, and the downtown area all within walking distance. In our minds nothing compares to Carillon Beach. Once you visit, you won't want to stay anywhere else!

Lovely cottage located in great beach community

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Two, If by Sea in Carillon Beach. The cottage has all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay. Each bedroom has it's own bath, plus the cutest half bath on the main floor. There are tons of restaurants in the area, but we also enjoy cooking, and the kitchen is well equipped to handle any meal. We love the privacy afforded by Carillon Beach, the beautiful white sand beaches, beach chair/umbrella service, and watching sunsets every evening. It was hard to leave, and we hope to come back again. Thanks Kim, for sharing your beautiful home!

Amazing rental property!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at "Two, If by Sea" was nothing less than amazing. Kim Dodd, the owner, made us feel like family and not just guests in a rental home. Her attention to every single detail made our trip perfect. The sandcastle cake that was waiting for us at arrival was delicious--we ate every bite! The fresh flowers in the house made us feel right at home immediately and we enjoyed them every day. The coloring book and colored pencils that were provided added an extra special touch to the trip and were definitely appreciated.

My family has been coming to Carillon Beach for many, many years, but this trip had special significance for many reasons. I will never be able to say "thank you" enough for making our trip unforgettable. We will definitely look forward to staying at "Two, If by Sea" again on our future trips to Carillon Beach! Thank you for making this trip the best one yet. The genuine hospitality that we enjoyed will never be forgotten.

Adorable cottage with great location!

  • 5 of 5

We just left today and really enjoyed our stay at "two, if by sea"! The house was adorable, very well stocked, clean and had everything we needed. When we arrived we were greeted by beautiful fresh flowers and an adorable sandcastle cake, such a nice touch! I would highly recommend this property for a small family or girls week/weekend. Thanks so much Kim, we had a great week:)

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I can't express how much my friend and I enjoyed our stay at Two-If-By-Sea! The photos don't do it justice. We were greeted with fresh flowers and a freshly baked sand castle cake that we enjoyed the entire week. Everything that we could possibly need or want was provided: beach towels, rolling cooler, beach toys, beach set up, bicycles, scented candles, laundry supplies, etc. We loved the cottage and plan to come back next year.

Cozy cottage with all the extras

  • 5 of 5

Two If By Sea is the perfect cottage for a small group. We stayed for a girls weekend and had a wonderful stay. The cottage is well-furnished in the kitchen, bedrooms, and baths with up-to-date appliances and plush towels and bed linens. The porch swings were the perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place for 2-4 people.
