Property description

New Addition Complete!
You will be delighted with this gorgeous south of 30-A cottage located at 89 Hopetown Lane in Rosemary Beach, just 4 houses from the Gulf.
The front of the house faces one of Rosemary's charming pedestrian wooden boardwalks that leads directly to a beach walkover. Gulf views can be enjoyed from the second story porch. The back yard is a walled courtyard with a lovely fountain. There is a large teak dining table for 8 with umbrella and a built in gas grill with a dedicated gas line. No carriage house shares this property so there is no awkwardness in sharing the outdoor space with strangers. It is yours alone to grill, dine and enjoy.
Note: Many of Rosemary Beach homes also have a separate carriage house built behind or adjacent to the main one. These are usually rented separately and can impact main house privacy and parking availability.

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. If you want to be near the town center, the Western Green and the Gulf, this is an ideal location. Note: if you want to be in the quietest and more remote corners of Rosemary, this is probably not the house for you.

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.

First Floor Bedroom, Queen Bed, double trough sink, shower
Second Floor Bedroom, Queen Bed, Double sink , shower
Second Floor Bedroom, Queen bed, tub/shower combo
Second Floor Bunkroom, 4 twin beds, tub/shower combo
Full fifth bathroom with a connecting indoor/outdoor shower

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 elegant furnishings abound with hardwood floors, mahogany French doors and custom finishes throughout. There are 3 fully furnished porches to enjoy as well. One is even screened and contains a comfortable hanging bed for napping. The porch off the master bedroom affords a gulf view directly down the boardwalk.

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. (We also provide HBO and Starz as a courtesy to our guests.) 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 burners, a separate beverage fridge 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 linens dress the bed and there is a beautiful new full en suite bath for this bedroom. Travertine tiles, a trough sink and a rain head shower make this newly added bathroom a true spa experience.
There is an additional full bath on the first floor for everyone,( the fifth one), which has a unique connecting indoor-outdoor shower.You can wash off sand and hang up beach stuff in the outdoor shower before entering the indoor one.

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 roll aways, sofa beds or futons to mess with. All beds are supplied with high quality mattresses and linens.
The master suite holds a romantic hand carved queen size 4 poster canopy bed with silk roped curtains. French doors lead out onto a porch with Gulf views and comfortable furniture. The large master bath has unique double custom made sinks, travertine floors and a large shower.
The bunk room has 4 individual custom built extra long twin beds and an en suite bath with tub and shower. Each bunk has its own light and curtains that can be drawn for privacy. It is ideally suited for kids but we have had many happy adults sleep there as well.
The fourth guest room has a beautiful antique white queen bed and mahogany french doors that lead to a large new screened- in porch. The porch is equipped with a hanging swing bed for naps and another area to just read and relax. This room also has an en suite 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 open space for kids to play or a private retreat for an afternoon nap. Books, games and children's movies are provided for your enjoyment.

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 add on 'processing fee' and the housekeeping costs are already included in the rates. I'm afraid I cannot do anything about the taxes which are currently 11.5% :)

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 have now graduated from 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 really enjoyed the process of decorating this home.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We had rented in Seaside, (too crowded), sandestin,(too cheesy) and sea grove, (not enough going on). We purchased a lot so early, ( 1998), that we were able to buy directly on a boardwalk, very close to the gulf and the town center. We were in the right place at the right time , for once!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Taking naps on the swing bed, watching people stroll up and down the boardwalk, enjoying the gulf off the second story porch, getting ice cream at the very nearby 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.
