Private Homes house description

You will be delighted with this gorgeous cottage located at 89 Hopetown Lane in Rosemary Beach, just 4 houses from the sparkling waters of the Gulf. The front of the house faces one of Rosemary's charming pedestrian wooden boardwalks. Porches and patios offer views and relaxation with gulf views from the second story porch.There is even a front porch swing on which to nap and daydream. The back yard is a walled courtyard with a lovely fountain, a large teak dining table and a huge built in grill. No carriage house shares this property so there is no awkwardness in sharing the outdoor space. It is yours alone to grill, dine and enjoy.

Behind Amsler Cottage is downtown Rosemary and The Pearl, Rosemary's new inn. Easy access to the shops, the restaurants, and the hustle and bustle of town activity are all just a one minute stroll away.

Since we are on the south side or 'beach side' of 30-A, there are no major streets to cross to reach the Gulf. Rosemary Beach also has four beautiful pools. Closest to us are the Barbados Pool and the Coquina Pool, each about a 5 minute walk. There are two additional pools on the North side, or not-beach side of 30-A which are also available to all Rosemary guests.

Once inside, you might think you have entered a European villa. Professionally decorated, the furnishings strike a perfect balance between comfort and elegance. Unique lighting fixtures, luxurious fabrics and richly colored furnishings abound with hardwood floors, mahogany French doors and custom finishes throughout.

The first floor is an open area anchored by three sets of mahogany French doors. Watch as beach goers stroll down the boardwalk while dining, watching your 40' flat screen LED/LCD TV or reading in front of the gas fireplace.( There are 5 flat screen TVs in the house). Movies and tv shows can be streamed at no charge through Netflix. Custom made slipcovers and sea grass rugs create an upscale yet comfortable atmosphere.
The fully equipped gourmet kitchen features granite and tumbled marble finishes, Bosch dishwasher, gas stove and custom made cabinetry. Seating for 8 at the square dining table as well as counter top seating provides room for 10. Also on the first floor is a guestroom with a queen bed for those that prefer not to climb stairs. Crisp, white matelasse linens dress the bed and French doors open out onto the porch. The full bath for this bedroom includes an indoor-outdoor shower.

The second floor has 3 bedrooms, all with private baths. No beds/bunks are built into the hallways and all beds are true beds, i.e. no rollaways, sofa beds or futons. All beds are supplied with high quality mattresses and linens. The romantic master suite holds a queen size 4 poster canopy bed with silk roped curtains. French doors lead out onto a porch with Gulf views. The large master bath has double custom made sinks, travertine floors and a shower large enough for two. The custom bunk room has 4 individual twin built in beds and a bath with tub and shower. The fourth guest room has a queen size bed, a charming window seat and bath with tub and shower.

Up a spiral staircase to the third floor is an extra space for those occasional rainy days. Featuring a built in daybed, a flat screen tv, and a DVD/VCR, it is a great space for kids or a private retreat for an afternoon nap. Books, games and children's movies are at your disposal.

Overseen by 30A Cottages and Concierge, guests will experience in-house check in and first class service from housekeeping to restaurant and activity reservations. High grade sheets and towels as well as organic bath and toiletries are provided. Most importantly, should guests need or want anything, a staff member will be on hand to insure our guests are taken care of.

Although Amsler Cottage is ultimately about forgetting the outside world, we do provide wired and wireless internet access should you need to stay in touch. See the AMSLER COTTAGE WEBSITE for a location map and additional photo's.
Please note that the rental rates for Amsler Cottage are arrived at by undercutting those of the homes around us. Our goal is to provide an excellent value by cutting out high commission rates to a management company while still providing the onsite convenience of a concierge service. There is no 'processing fee' and the housekeeping costs are already included.

A 50% deposit is due at time of booking. Remaining balance is due 60 days prior to arrival.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About the owner: We are a family of four and we live in Atlanta. We purchased this lot in Rosemary Beach in 1998 so that our two boys would have a place to play in the sugar white sand. Said two boys are now in college but still love playing in the sand. We worked with an architect to design a house that would be both beautiful as well as practical. I am an interior designer and the interiors are especially lovely if i don't say so myself!!

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      We had rented in Seaside, (too crowded), sandestin,(too cheesy) and sea grove, (not enough to do). We purchased a lot so early that we were able to buy directly on a boardwalk, very close to the gulf and the town center.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Taking naps on the front porch swing, watching the people stroll up and down the boardwalk, enjoying the gulf off the second story porch, getting ice cream at the sugar shak. We also employ a concierge service that can provide our guests with anything they might need from bicycles to restaurant reservations to photographers.
