AC/Dallas, TX (July 9--16, 2011)

K.............the C Clan have arrived.  We are in heaven.  Thank you soooooo much for making your homes perfect in every way.  We will take good care of them.  xoxox AC

MM/Bloomington, IL (June 19--26, 2010)

K, Delighted . . . (for you to use the email I sent you):  What an amazing set of houses you have in Carillon Beach!  My husband and I (and our boys) stayed in the Banana Cabana last week (when our friends stayed in the main house).  We loved the set up and thought that these were the nicest and best appointed houses we've stayed at ever.  You really went out of your way to think of everything and to make it convenient for your guests!  Your great taste in decorating and your attention to detail made the whole experience so enjoyable!  Thanks for helping us enjoy our vacation as much as our boys did!  Thanks again!  Take Care,

G A/Dallas, TX--Vale, CO (May 29--June 19, 2010)

Yes for sure use anything I wrote.  It was all the truth.  What a great time!!!  It looks beautiful to me and we are having the time of our lives.  Your home is by far the nicest we have ever stayed in in all our years of visiting Florida.  I just can't get over it.  Thank you for giving us a vacation of a lifetime.  This is a place of healing.  Thanks again for everything!!!

SB/Nashville, TN (May 8--15, 2010)

Hi, You are more than welcome to use my email to you.  I forgot to mention that we received our deposit check Monday (2 days after departure).  Thanks so much.  We tried to take care of everything just as if it was our own home.  One thing I forgot to include was how nice it was to have our very own Bahama Mama and Banana Cabana beach lounges/umbrellas daily beach service.  Kyle was very helpful.  You are right - I chose not to access my computer last week at the beach - which was great.  More time to enjoy my precious grandchildren and your beautiful homes.  Both A Bahama Mama and A Banana Cabana could not have been more lovely or more inviting!  You did a beautiful job in decorating both.  As it turned out, my husband and I, and our unmarried son stayed out in A Banana Cabana - which worked out beautifully.  Everyone enjoyed the beautiful beach - the weather was perfect!! - the pool and just sitting out on the balcony and enjoying all the beauty!!  Thank you for all of your hard work in remembering everything we could possible need!  We will be in touch and thanks again for sharing !!

G S/Chattanooga, TN (July 25--August 1, 2009)--                                       "Carillon and your house are wonderful.  Your house was exactly as 'advertised', really a cut or two above other nice homes.  Great trip . . . . We will of course consider your home again.  You were a pleasure to work with.  Kathi, the comments were sincere.  Wish I were still there . . . . "

NMc/Nashville (October 10--17, 2009)--

Just a quick note to tell you that A Bahama Mama is a dream come true!  This was our first time to Carillon, and boy--we were spoiled!  The weather was perfect; the community provides a little bit of Charleston and Seaside, and its amenities are just off the charts.  Going in the off-season was magical, as the beaches were practically private, and the whole atmosphere was very intimate and upscale.

And the house; it was amazing!  Your gorgeous appointments in the kitchen/greatroom and bedrooms almost stole the show--my wife loved the colors.  When we could peel them off the beach (only steps away from the bedrooms), our kids loved the nautical loft and its private TV.  Placing the kitchen/greatroom on the upper level was a stroke of genius--it afforded stunning views of crystal-clear gulf water and its marine life in the mornings.

All of your little touches made our vacation outstanding . . . a top-notch experience all the way around!  Ya'll were a dream to work with--made the process easy!  We hope you'll let us come back!

G F (corp. golf w/culinary pros)/Jackson, MS (April, 2009)--                            Kathi, wanted to drop you an email, and tell you our recent stay was fabulous.  You have a lovely BeachHome , and our party was extremely impressed with everything.  The Great Room and Beach Front Porch was a wonderful gatthering place.  Our Culinary Professionals said your kitchen was well equipped to prepare the tremendous meals we enjoyed.  The weather could not have been any better while we enjoyed the golf at Shark's Tooth, and Camp Creek.  Thanks for allowing us to rent your home.  I have another group of golfers coming down in October for a week.  Would you have any interest in renting your home--let me know if you are interested. 

d s/indianapolis, in (November 15--22, 2008)--
"we stayed at the bahama mama and banana cabana in november
2008 ... from the balconies, the
sunsets over the ocean were magnificent .... both beach houses are
really better than the website
pictures ... loved the floorplan of the houses ... all open and
ultra contemporary ... everything is
top of the line from kitchen appliances to a big lcd tv in every
bedroom ... the surrounding
communities are upscale and really reminded me of european design
and culture .... great spot for a
family vacation or a group of friends looking to split the cost ...
highly recommended!"

J G/Peoria (a frequesnt Carillon renter) (November 8--15, 2008)--
"Bahama Mama is a one of a kind home. The decor and
furnishings were picked out with great
care. Everything was top of the line! The view from the living
room was fabulous!! Thanks for
sharing your beach home. Many memories were made here!"

Descriptions . . .
Imagine a snow-white sand dune with swaying sea oats by almost
Caribbean-green water on Carillon
Beach, FL. That's where "Bahama Mama" (vacation rental home),
and "A Banana Cabana" (companion
guest cottage) proudly sit. You'll love the spectacular sunsets over the gulf here from outdoors & indoors.
Newly constructed, "Bahama Mama", & "A Banana Cabana" provide
casual, luxury accommodations with a
coastal flair. She is awash in light, airy, well-appointed
interiors with clean lines. When you
reach the spacious gulf-front rooms, you will
pause . . . "wow" . . . outdoors brilliantly fuses
with indoors.
Add a heated private pool; by day, ideal for sunbathing as well as
relaxing in the shade. By night,
the pool lights glow transforms this same pool deck and comfortable
loggia into a cozy retreat.
Only now can you begin to appreciate. . . she is your perfect
address in paradise; e n j o y . . . .
