About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

As the name of this home, “It’s 5 o’clock Somewhere” implies, this home is perfect for entertaining and welcoming friends and family to the beach. This large (2,800 square feet) ocean view home sleeps eight and is complete with four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, great open kitchen and dining area, living room, family room, upstairs and downstairs porches and a pool with a grill to enjoy outdoor dining as well. It was recently a featured as a distinguished home in the Parade of Homes.

Upon entering the home, on the lower level you’ll find an open living, dining and kitchen area with bar. Open the French doors in the living area and step out on to the porch (also directly accessible from the downstairs bedroom and dining room). Then step on down to the bricked private patio with an outdoor dining area next to the pool surrounded by palm trees. Great place to have a glass of wine or dinner under the stars on one of the many beautiful Florida evenings.

Enjoy the openness of this beach house as you continue upstairs with a wall of windows to your right. The windows throughout the house provide a bright sunny home and offer a 360 view of the homes in Carillon as well as the beach. Upon reaching the second floor you are welcomed to a great family seating area opening out on to a screened porch. The master bedroom and a guest bedroom also open out to this screened porch which overlooks the outdoor dining area and pool below while offering a great view of the beach as well. The third bedroom upstairs is filled on two sides with floor to ceiling windows offering a bright, cheery environment.

Still need more space to accommodate other family and friends? Check out the guest house directly next to this main house. You can find it listed as Come On Inn, property number 865852. You'll find it's very similar in design to this house and has a great view of the ocean.

Just steps from the house you will be on the white sands of Carillon Beach and enjoying your well-earned vacation. Beach chair service is provided March 1 to October 15. In addition to the pool at this house, select from three within Carillon—a large, gulf side pool, a heated east side pool and a west side pool, all within walking distance.

Carillon Beach is a quiet, gated, private upscale Beach side Village. Walk along the oak canopied promenade to the town area which includes a chapel nestled in the trees by Lake Carillon, restaurants and shopping. Paved roads and sidewalks create a safe place for children to ride bikes and walk to activities. Games and brochures are available for information on the area to make your stay memorable. Bicycles are available in the Village and Wi-Fi is available within the home.

Enjoy live music in Downtown Carillon at “Groovin’ on the Green” during the summer, or listen to the music of the Gulf right from your own porch and bedroom. Be sure to visit the shops on Highway 30A. An, Pier Park, the Emerald Coast’s newest destination offers shopping, theater and a restaurant complex just 4 miles away. Grocery store shopping at Publix or Winn Dixie is located just 600 feet down the street from the main entrance. Just a short walk from the house you can explore Lake Powell and Camp Helen State Park located right next to Carillon. For those who wish to fly to Carillon, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) is located a short 17 miles away.

About Rich Coad

We have been a part of the Carillon Beach community for over 20 years and have enjoyed the beauty, safety and security that Carillon Beach offers along with their excellent amenities. It's 5 o'clock Somewhere has been our weekend home for the last 10 years and is a very comfortable, open and large beach house on the east end of Carillon Beach just steps from walkover number 8 to the ocean. Before putting it up for rental, we enjoyed completely updating it with fresh furnishing and adding amenities. The one thing that couldn't be updated or changed is the beautiful view you have every day when you wake up or in the evening as you watch the sun set on the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the soft sparkling white sand. We hope you will enjoy this home as much as we have over the years.

Rich Coad purchased this house in 2003

Why Rich Coad chose Laguna Beach

Everyone had a dream and picture of what a beach community should be. When you see the cute homes within this private, quiet gated community and meet the friendly families that are here you know you are in the right place. Enjoy one of the few beach communities in the area that doesn't have a major road running through it so that children and adults can bicycle, walk and do other activities and be assured you are safe and secure. Carillon Beach is an undiscovered secret treasure on the Emerald Coast.

What makes this house unique

Without a doubt the unique benefit of this property is your access and view to Carillon Beach. We cannot describe the feeling of waking up every morning to the beauty and sounds of the Gulf of Mexico. Take your coffee the few steps down tot he white sandy beach and plan your fun filled day on your vacation. End your day with a relaxing drink as you watch the sun set over the ocean. Enjoy all this in one of the most spacious and exquisite homes in the private community of Carillon Beach.

Great Property and location.

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing with the family at Carillon beach every summer for over 10 years and have rented several different houses. Now with grandchildren in the mix we wanted some extra room so we rented 5’oclock Somewhere and the carriage house. Lots of room, and nicely decorated. Very nice kitchen (we cook in so this is important). The pool was a big plus; and with 4 under 4yrs it was great for wearing them down at the end of the day. (Secure gates on the pool) Very close to the beach, one house away from the walk over. I plan to rent this one again.

It's 5 O'clock Somewhere is the perfect spot to celebrate a 50th anniversary with children and grandchildren! We all had a wonderful week at Carillon Beach and loved all the amenities of the home,beach and surrounding areas. The home itself was beautiful and had a beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony and master bedroom. The home had everything we needed for our stay. It is in a lovely walking community, and we hope to visit again soon.

Fantastic family getaway, beautiful property and view (plus a great pool)

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days here with family and the house was perfect. The layout gives everyone lots of privacy and options for gathering. The furnishings are beautiful and the kitchen is well appointed. However, the grill did not work (appeared to have a clogged gas line - wouldn’t maintain the set temperature). The house is very convenient to the walkover to the beach which was great. The beach/Gulf view from the upstairs porch and master bedroom is fantastic! Highly recommend this property and hope to go back soon.

Look no Further! This is the Perfect Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our trip to Carillon! We had a wide range of ages in our group, so we occupied both properties; It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere and Come on Inn. Between the two homes, we had everything we needed, including easy access for those with mobility issues as well as privacy for the teenagers. Come on Inn is a home in itself. It offers privacy but is located just feet from the main house. Both houses are very clean and well appointed. No details went unnoticed in this home or in the community. This home is located in a quiet, gated community where golf carts are used more often than cars. Pools, a basketball court and small shops are all accessible inside this community. The location was perfect as well. We were close enough to Panama City to enjoy the restaurants and activities, yet far enough away to enjoy a quiet, peaceful environment. And, lastly, the owners could not have been more helpful. They were wonderful and easy to work with, answering each of my messages very quickly. It was a special touch to find a welcome message and gift upon our arrival at the home! If you're looking for the perfect vacation, look no further! A beautiful, clean home located on the beach in a quiet neighborhood, and wonderful owners too! This property has it all!

Beautiful home steps from dune walkover

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay for fall break at this house. Everything in the house is top of the line and in perfect working order. The beach access is steps away and so convenient. The bedrooms are laid out well and there are plenty of bathrooms. Our weather was beautiful but the one night that it rained, it was a special treat because of the metal roof. It sounded divine and made for the best sleep! We can’t say enough about this beautiful home and the hospitality shown to us by the owners.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim, So happy you enjoyed the stay. And, you have a story about riding out the "tropical storm" the day it came through! We hope you have many happy memories and welcome you back any time.
