I had never been to Carillon Beach before, but had seen many quality reviews about this particular property as well as the area in general, so I decided to give it a try with my family (wife and three daughters) along with my in-laws. In a nutshell...Fairway Cottage is "outstanding" by all standards, and Denise (owner) was extremely helpful during the reservation and "Q and a" process. The unit is in excellent condition and has everything you need to feel "at home". (Don't worry about packing any kitchen necessities or beach items...as you can just save the space in your vehicle; Fairview Cottage has all you need waiting for you.) Everything about the house is exemplary, and it is well maintained with spacious bedrooms, living area, etc. Beyond outstanding accommodations, however, is most certainly its high marks for "convenience". The house is located right on the beach (which is welcomingly uncrowded) and right next door to a swimming pool, thus making it logistically ideal for our scenaro. My in-laws could sit on the back porch and feel "part of the action" while the kids were playing at either location. Undoubtedly, we would recommend this property to anyone... as it receives the highest of marks from our experience and perspective. We will hopefully have an opportunity to return again soon.

Thank you for sharing this great cottage in such a beautiful location. It was just the perfect size for our family and friends. Good common spaces for gathering and plenty of room to spread out for quiet time and reading. Great views of the gulf from the porches and just a few steps to the water. Kitchen has everything you need to cook in and many great restaurants within short drives. Lots of floats, beach chairs, toys and bikes for all sizes. I appreciate the thoughtful hospitality of the owner and how well organized and easy the process was to rent and receive check in information etc. I will definitely be coming back. Thanks for a memorable vacation!

This home is everything it claims to be. As a mom cleanliness is really important to me. This is probably the cleanest vacation spot I've ever stayed. Very clean! The house is very nice. It is actually nicer than the pictures show. Everything you need is there. As far as location it can't be beat. Directly on the beach with private walk down. The pool next door is awesome. Kids could go back and forth from the pool to the beach with ease. We were all able to get some much needed relaxation and had a wonderful time. The kids are already asking when we can go back and we just got home last night!

This is our 2nd time staying at Fairview Cottage at Carillon Beach. We have 4 small children and if we are going to get away with just our family, this is where we go. Other than Carillon Beach being a fabulous beach community and the best sand and water of anywhere we have stayed along the florida coast (and we have stayed many places), we like to stay at Fairview because it has everything. All we bring is a beach towel and clothes. For a family with 4 small kids it has everything. Pack and Play, kids plates, silverware, kids cups, baby gates, high chair, and the best part - a garage full of beach toys. We love that we don't have to pack the car with beach toys or bring them back full of sand. Most of the time our kids just wanted to play in the garage with all the toys. The other great thing about this house is that it is right next to the Carillon Beach Pool. Your kids can play in the pool next door and you can see them through the windows or from the back porch. Awesome to be able to play in the pool with the kids while dinner is being made, and then mommy lets us know from the porch it is done and we walk right over. (By the way, the kitchen is stocked with anything and everything you need, including frozen coozies in the freezer.) And of course you are right on the beach, just walk down a small flight of stairs and you are 20 steps from your beach chair. You can watch your kids play on the beach from the porch. To top it all off the owner is amazing. She always calls after we arrive to make sure everything is in order and the house is always clean. She really has thought of everything and wants you to feel like you are at your home away from home. You can't go wrong with this property, especially if you have children. We will be back!
This home has everything you will need for a great vacation. Million dollar views of the Gulf (see dolphins from deck), private walk to beach that was never crowded. The owner, Denise, has pretty much thought of everything, beach and water toys, bicycles, lots of dishes, pots, pans, silverware, blenders, crock-pot...the list could go on and on. Denise was a real pleasure to work with; always prompt and courteous responses to calls or e-mails. The whole process of renting was painless. My family and I spent a week at Fairview during Spring Break; the privacy of the gated community, family atmosphere, great pools, restaurants and shopping on the property was great. We checked out the zoo, rented a pontoon and cruised to Shell Island for the day, took a chartered fishing trip, and spent 3 days just lounging on the beach. We asked Denise for seafood recommendation...she told us about Buddy's sea food market...very good food. Recommend to everyone...I know I've used the term great a lot but what else can I say "great vacation". Will be back.

We just returned from a relaxing week with our teenage boys at Fairview Cottage. Even though the weather was a little cool and rainy, there were plenty of things to do to keep everyone entertained. The house was immaculate and contained anything and everything you would need to feel right at home. A well stocked kitchen, plenty of books, movies, games, pool toys and enough bicycles for everyone to take a nice stroll through this beautiful gated community. There truly is something for everyone. On the days the sun was out we were steps away from beach chairs waiting on us. A candy store and pizza restaurant were a short bike ride away for the kids. Denise, the owner, called to make sure we were settled in and had everything we needed. We have long been fans of Carillon Beach because of its proximity to the communities on 30-A and short drive to Panama City and Destin to take advantage of the restaurants and night life without the crowds. Now we are fans of Fairview cottage and can not wait for our next getaway!!

We stayed at the Fairview Cottage for our family vacation and absolutely loved it! The house was spotless when we walked in, the beach was gorgeous, and the neighborhod was perfect! The house was fully stocked with all the kitchen utensils we could ever need and perfect for our teen kids to hang out and have their space while still being together as a family. We can't wait to stay in the cottage again, and can't thank Denise enough for the hospitality that we recieved during our stay.

FairView is the best rental Ihave ever experienced. Susan and I have rented this property for a number of years and usually visit in Early Spring or October. The weather is outstanding.Crystal clear days or as they say in Cabo, "no bad days" and beautiful beaches.
This is an outstanding rental, fully squipted with anything you would want, kitchen, beach supplies, bicycles, , and a spectacular view of the beach and the Gulf. White Sugar Sand and water to die for. Better than any of the Islands Ihave visited , and guess what, I can drive to Winn Dixie in 5 minutes and buy food, drinks and all my needs.
This is heaven and I always look forward to renting this property. Ms Smith is very accomodating and a wonderful owner. She is a wonderful person to work with.
Once you vist this property, you want to come back year after year as My wife and I have. We'll be back in the spring -13!

The name says is all. This is a great hideaway location away from the hustle and bustle of the strip but close enough so that you can visit that area. The cottage is lovely. Everything is spotless and cozy. The place is situated five houses from the beach which means about a two minute walk. The cottage has beach chairs and umbrella which is great. Every part of the space is used smartly and for ease of use. The landscaping is beautiful and we saw 20-30 butterflies a day flying around the flowers. We truly enjoyed our hideaway vacation and would recommend it highly.

This house (I can't call it a cottage, it was much larger than what I envisioned a cottage would be!) was *perfect* for our friend getaway! Just walk out the door and down the private walkway to the beach - couldn't get any closer if you tried! And if the gulf isn't your thing, a pool was literally right next door (and bonus, the cottage garage has lots of pool toys for your use!). The rental was equipped with all the comforts of home, allowing us to easily make our meals and thoroughly enjoy our surroundings. There were bikes in the garage as well so you could just hop on a bike and take a little ride around the community. I can't wait to return to Fairview and bring my son - he'll love the morning strolls along the beach searching for shells. The views are breathtaking and the home is lovely. Do yourself a favor and book your relaxing getaway at Fairview. You won't be disappointed!

We stayed for 5 days during Labor Day, and had a wonderful time. The location is fantastic, directly on the beach and literally 10 feet from the pool deck. The home was very clean, and well equipped for our stay (which is saying a lot considering we have two children under 3 years old). The owner is without a doubt the most accomodating owner we've ever worked with, from the moment we inquired about the property, all the way through the follow up after our stay. Absolutely first class treatment.
Only two negative things that we would mention:
1) There is only one television which is in the living room, with very limited channels (there is a DVD player though and lots of movies already there - but no Espn which hurt during college football season). This was not a big deal since we spent our entire vacation on the beach and in the pool!
2) There are very few window treatments which made it difficult to sleep past sunrise... lots of natural light in the house but our children have trouble sleeping in a room that isn't super dark.
With that said, if you are looking for a perfectly located home directly on the gulf and with very easy pool access, convenient to everything, this is absolutely the place for you. This was our first stay in Carillon and we were shocked how private the beach felt... we had the entire beach to ourselves for most of our stay - so much fun with the two kids. The sand and water were perfect, we had two complimentary beach chairs with an umbrella everyday already set up - 30 feet from our private boardwalk and deck. You really can't get a more stress free vacation!

I know there are a lot of great reviews of the house and I couldn't agree more with all of them.. This is just perfect!! From the moment we arrived we just loved this place.. I feel it is an ideal location with the pool right next door and we enjoyed both the beach and pool everyday!! It was very nice to wake up on the beach and have our morning coffee on the back porch watching the waves roll in. This house is very clean and had everything you will need to enjoy your time at the beach. From beach toys to dinnerware all you will need is a beach towel.. Communication was impeccable and we hope to be back soon. Both of my boys said the had a great time !! We just would sit there at the end of the day watch the sunset and giggle at how wonderful a place it is ... We even saw a few shooting stars off the top porch ... to sum it up in one word.. perfect!!!

Our family of 5 adults and two small children just completed our first stay at the Fairview Cottage. Denise, the owner, was wonderful to work with and periodically checked to make sure our stay was perfect. We had a wonderful time. The bedroom setup was perfect for accommodating the small children. The convenience of the pool and the beach were a much more valuable feature than we had expected. The house, especially the kitchen, which included children's place settings/cups/utensils, and the garage, with all of the toys, provided everything we needed. Plus the convenience of the washer/dryer were a big plus. Only thing we would have improved would be the quality of the wireless Internet service as it was very inconsistent and slow at times plus cell phone service was spotty so working can be a little challenging. We highly recommend Fairview Cottage for your vacation stay.
Poolside - Beach front! You never need to go more than 50 feet from the house. Greatest memories...ample kitchen for casual entertaining, perfect back porch with visual to pool and beech, quiet and efficient neighborhood, walking distance to store. Life should be this good everyday!

There are so many positive things to say about the Fairview Cottage that I don't even know where to begin! The property of Carillon Beach is spectacular in its own. Its a sanctuary of beautiful gardens, a gorgeous lake, & several pools. When we pulled up to the driveway to the Fairview, we had to check the address again because we thought we were dreaming! it was like we were able to finally relax as soon as we walked in. The views are absolutely breath taking! I have never experienced a more colorful sunset then on the back porch. Every amenity possible is found here. From ocean rafts to board games, Its all here. We never ran out of things to do. Denise was amazing to work with. She made sure we had everything we could possibly need. She even left us a bottle of wine to welcome us! The kitchen has every utensil imaginable, things I don't even have in my own kitchen. We grilled out fresh seafood from the fish market down the street every night. Why spend $100 + on an ocean view restaurant when you have it all right here? We honestly only left to go to the Publix & the liquor store located directly across the street! You will be blown away by you're entire stay here. We will return every year, from now on this is "our" beach house!!
Finally, a peaceful, private place to regroup and enjoy my famil

I have enjoyed our staycation. We just didn't want to leave the Fairview Cottage in Panama City Beach, FL. We have stayed in the area for several years now, each time at different locations. We have discovered the Fairview Cottage this year. I really don't think we will search any longer. The ammenities are complete. We lacked nothing. One day of rain.( we needed that to get in touch with each other. ) I forgot how much fun putting a puzzle together with my son was. (that puzzle was provided too) This vacation was full of memories. My wife and I enjoyed the stars on the top deck master bedroom balcony looking over the Gulf. Gulf Front, beside the pool and located near Pier Park where there is so much to do. Check it out.
