When we searched for the perfect beach house, we found Bahama Mama.  Upon arriving, we had the pleasure of discovering the house to be way beyond perfect.  It is the quintessential American Beach House:  light, bright, open, spacious, comfortable, simple, AND elegant!  Our entire family loved the house, and the amazing white sand beach.  The maintenance, the attention to detail, the quality amenities, all make Bahama Mama a place we all want to return to.      The L's from Houston, TX (September 7–14, 2013)   [[,[


 GREAT HOUSE!  The house was perfect. My family and I stayed in Watercolor in 2014 and loved the area but found the beach and pool to be inconvenient and crowded. This year, we opted for something on the beach with a pool and were very pleased. The beach was 15 yards off our balcony and the entire back of the house had an unobstructed view of the water. Tired of the beach? We walked 15 yards back to the house and would relax in our private pool. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed.      Jonathan from Dallas, TX (August 1–8, 2015) 

 WHAT A TREAT!  This is the most amazing vacation home in which I have ever had the privilege to stay. First of all, the house was a spotless, beautifully decorated, fresh beach house and so comfortable. It was perfection! What a view with the beautiful ocean and pristine beach. The sunsets were breathtaking. I have stayed at Watercolor, andSeaside, but Carillon is my favorite! It has a beautiful beach and a wonderful feel at home village. Neither is crowded and both are very peaceful. The owners are perfectionist and lend a hand in every way possible to make a perfect vacation! Loved the luxury of a local Carillon Beach restaurant delivering fresh grouper sandwiches by our own private, heated pool.  This was not my first time nor will it be my last time to stay in this home!       Anne from Nashville, TN (April, 2015) 

 BEST VACATION EVER….I cannot say enough good things about this property and the owner. They went above and beyond in ALL things!! The Four Seasons could learn from them on guest hospitality. We truly have not had a more enjoyable and relaxing family vacation. The details… I was planning a large family trip (ages 11 months to 72) and coordinating dates is always difficult but the owner responded quickly to every call and email and made the booking very easy (despite me changing the date no less than 3 times). The house is immaculate. (Including the pool, even the outdoor grill.) The furnishings are beautiful. Everything is light, crisp and clean the way you want a beach house to feel. Check the pics online… I thought there was no way it could be that perfect, but it was actually better. The house is fully stocked with everything you need to feel right at home. State of the art appliances, ice machine, cookware… Including a liner in the oven. My mom loved it so the owner had the staff give her one the day we were leaving. How nice is that?! Very nice!! Anyway, we were able to cook and share some wonderful meals as a family. Finally, the location is unbeatable. You practically fall out of the back door onto a pristine uncrowded beach where the beach valet makes sure your chair and umbrella are waiting for you everyday. There was nothing for my family to do except play, fly kites, and relax. We spent our time in the pool at the house as well. They even put an alarm on the door leading out to the pool to keep the little ones safe. But if you didn't want to enjoy the house and beach all day the owners are kind enough to send you a packet beforehand outlining all the amazing things you can do in the area. Farmers market? Check. Paddle boarding? Check. Where to find homemade bread and fresh donuts? DOUBLE CHECK! I could go on and on with this review. I promise you will not be disappointed. Book it now! (Oh, and they returned by deposit check before I even had time to unpack my suitcase! Which in this case was less than 1 week 🙂  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you!      Marcia from Dallas, TX (June13–20, 2015) 

 WHAT A GREAT SURPRISE….The vacation beach home was as good as the pictures! The home was beautiful, and perfect for our family of eight. We had two four year old grandchildren and the location on the beach was perfect. The location for our grown children could not have been better-in the evening they were able to get on 30-A and find some really good restaurants and entertainment.. As for my husband and I, the set up of the house-with a very open floor plan and plenty of King size beds was just perfect. The owners could not have been more helpful in helping with the planning of the trip (with local information) the airport is only 15 minutes away, and our deposit almost beat us home!      Teresa H from Fayetteville, AR (August 15–22, 2015) 

FANTASTIC WEEK AT MY FAVORITE BEACH HOUSE–This was the perfect setting for a fantastic vacation!! The beach, community and accommodations are beautiful. I love Carillon Beach – there's no better place than Bahama Mama/Banana Cabana to relax and play! When I'm not enjoying the beach or pool, I like the hiking, biking, restaurants and shopping nearby. Thank you for letting others experience your home at the beach. Appreciate your attention to detail and the balance luxury and comfort. Can't wait for my next trip this fall!      Deb from Baton Rouge, LA (May 9–16, 2015)


 HEAVEN ON EARTH!  What an incredible experience! The home was spotless and beautiful! The owners were helpful and extremely nice. We would certainly recommend this little piece of heaven to anyone! We are counting down the days for our return visit!      Coach from London, KY (December, 2014–January, 2015) 


 Bahama Mama- EXQUISITE!!!!  You will not find a better home on the Emerald Coast than this one!! It was perfectly appointed and made you feel like you were on the vacation of a lifetime. The home is so gorgeous and clean we had a difficult time leaving it to even go to the beach!!! Words can't describe the home and guest house, but the pictures are very indicative of the decor. There was no expense spared in the linens, appliances and kitchen gadgets. My husband even bought me the iron they had there for Christmas!!! Because yes, it was that high end and amazing! The views are breathtaking inside and outside the house, so even if it rained the whole week you would not be disappointed!! I hope everyone has the opportunity once in there lifetime to enjoy a vacation home such as this one!! We stayed with our 4 boys and my parents and sister and everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. We have rented homes directly on the ocean for the last 5 years, usually on Hilton Head Island or Saint Simon's Island, but now we have all been spoiled and because we can't ever top Bahama Mama we won't even try! Staying home this year so we can save and go again next year!! The owners were amazing and prompt with the security refund too!! You will not be disappointed!      David E from Spartanburg, SC (June 21–28, 2014) 


 Hi K,  I wanted to thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your truly beautiful home.  The house was so pristine!!!  We loved the beach house so much along with the cleanliness.  WOW!!!   I have never rented a vacation home before that was quite in this condition . . . . Amazing!!!  You also make the vacation experience very easy, thinking of everything!  We all sincerely thank you and hope we can make it happen again next fall.  Back to reality . . . .      CS from Houston, TX (September 14–21, 2013) 


The house is as beautiful as the pictures and you have provided every amenity.  The kitchen is superbly appointed with the best possible of everything – it is truly a gourmet cooks dream.  I hope your crews found that we left everything in tip top shape.  We had an amazing week of perfect October weather, crystal clear water, and powdery white sand.  Many thanks from the W, H, & S families.      C & MW from Brentwood, TN (October 12–19, 2013)


 K, You are so unbelievably nice and responsive.  I absolutely cannot recommend you or your house enough.  Thank you for always being so prompt and thorough.  Hope you have a great New Year as well and hope your property continues to be sold out 🙂      LB from Austin, TX (August 11–18, 2012)


Wow!  We have been amazed at how immaculate you keep this house despite it being rented out week after week (8 months solid different families every single Sat. to Sat.) – it is much appreciated.  We have had a fabulous week – thank you so much for your hospitality.  Loved the green apples – my friend made a tarte tatin (French apple pie). Thanks again.      PG from Atlanta, GA; France; & New York City, NY (October 5–12, 2013)


 The house, the location, the appointments within the house were perfect.  I do not remember ever staying in a house K, like yours.  Everything you have in the house is top shelf.  You seem to take care of your house like I do.  Nice to see that there are other people out there like me.  It was a pleasure being at your house for the week.  We are reluctant to leave.  The week went too fast.  We will all keep our memories in our hearts for a long time.  Fondly, Your beach renters from Germantown, TN.      JV from Germantown, TN (August 21–28, 2010)


Dear K, Your character is everywhere in your beach house.  We REALLY APPRECIATED EVERY SINGLE DETAIL OF YOUR BEAUTIFUL HOME.  Thanks for the top-of-the-line kitchen equipment.  The children really enjoyed the pool–I loved the pool fountains and foilage.  We hope to return to your beautiful well-appointed Bahama Mama beach house next year.  Thank you.      LL from Garrison, KY (August 10–17, 2013)
