2BR Cottage Vacation Rental in Panama City Beach, Florida

Wonderful family home, steps from the beach

Located in: Panama City Beach
Welcome to Summerlight. We accept bookings of seven days or more, Saturday to Saturday. Because of an insurance requirement, we are not able to accept booking requests for fewer than seven days.
Summerlight was featured in the April 2006 issue of Cottage Living magazine in a story called 'Bright Hues and Ocean Views.' Each room has a different easter egg color scheme to make you smile. Star gaze on a summer's eve in the jasmine covered hammock, sip your margaritas among friends on the screen porch under the ceiling fans, or listen to a tropical deluge pounding away on the tin rooftops. Each is an experience you can enjoy all year round at Summerlight.

Cross one street serving the community only and there is dune walkover # 2. Get to the top of the walkover and then it hits you. This is what you came for! It's that first blast of moist salt air on your skin. And it's the delicate scent of the sea oats wafting past on the breeze. But, mostly, it's the breathtaking first glimpse from the heights of the dunes at the Gulf's infinite expanse of sky, sand and water opening up in front of you. Everything sparkles blue and white.

The Summerlight floor plan is living downstairs and sleeping up. This means no hiking up steps with sandy feet to re-fill your iced tea. The laundry, outdoor shower and powder room are just off the kitchen for convenience. Living and dining are all together in a cozy yet open floor plan. Upstairs are the master suite with bath, guest room, full hall bath and the bunk area with a pocket door. The large screen porch is like an extra great room. Out back is the hammock/gazebo, charcoal bar-b-que grill and our private 'nature zone' with native scrub oak, 8 palm trees, pink oleander, ginger and bottlebrush.

The house has wi-fi, a new 47' Smart TV with Comcast internet, Blu-Ray DVD and even 3-D features. Netflix and many cable channels give you plenty of entertainment choices. Our sound system is by Bose. Upstairs in the master suite sitting area is another HD TV and DVD player. The guest room also has a TV. An HP Officejet 4500 printer is available but please provide your own ink and paper. Equipment for guests includes baby gates, a BabyBjorm travel crib, tennis rackets, a simple fishing rig, bocce ball, croquet, board games, flashlights, additional beach chairs, crab nets and numerous sand toys and tools. The kitchen has first-class everything. Really. Even starfish and dolphin cookie cutters. We have a first aid kit reserved for jellyfish stings - but no one's ever used it.

The Carillon Beach Community has three pools including a beachfront pavilion pool with living room style covered seating, and a heated pool adjacent to a playground and separate kiddie pool. There are also basketball and tennis courts. Carillon is a gated community whose streets see more golf carts and bikes than cars. It is over 100 acres in size and the individually architect-designed houses are knit together with a maze of 'sand walks' and paved and Camellia strewn promenades perfect for family portraits. People who use walking assistance will love them. The homes of Carillon are adjacent to downtown Carillon which has restaurants, a coffee and ice cream shop, and a general store. During the summer there are family-friendly Monday evening concerts on the village green.

We are next to Camp Helen State Park and the huge brackish water Lake Powell which is usually open to the Gulf. The fishing from shore is fantastic! Kayaks are available to rent.

Carillon is located on the quiet end of the Panama City Beach far from high rises and traffic. Yet, Carillon guests have everything they could want in the way of necessities just across Back Beach Road. (Publix, CVS, Winn Dixie, liquor store and bank.) Three miles east on Back Beach Rd is Buddy's seafood market. You gotta go to Buddy's. Just east of that is the Beach's newest attraction; Pier Park, where luxuries like an IMAX theater, upscale shopping. Pier Park dining and entertainment are always in high gear. Get some Kilwin's saltwater taffy there to take home. And no - it is not 'airport' taffy. While at Pier Park go see the pier! The new county pier is the biggest in the state and you can see amazing creatures below the surface and some being pulled up by lucky anglers. To our west, cross Lake Powell into Walton County and Scenic Highway 30-A which is dubbed the 'Design Coast' for it's famous New Urbanist communities including Seaside, Alys Beach, Watercolor and Rosemary Beach. Carillon Beach was one of the first on the coast started in the '80's.

We hope to see you!
