Property description

The Johnson Cottage is the premier luxury rental property in Rosemary Beach, one of the most popular up-scale communities on the Gulf. Located one lot off the beach (less than two minutes from door to sand) with fabulous, unobstructed Gulf views, it offers every amenity to make it the perfect vacation home.

With it's unique floor plan and amenities, the house appeals to families and adult groups. The private pool (heated) courtyard, with an outdoor kitchen (large grill, with side burner and refrigerator) is great for family activities or quiet relaxation. There is also an outdoor shower with hot/cold water.

Spacious, covered verandas face the Gulf on both floors, with an upstairs porch fireplace. Gas lighting adds to the evening ambience of all the outdoor areas.

The Louisiana plantation style house has beautiful custom architectural features, is professionally decorated and was featured in a design magazine. It's impecably maintained, with recent (2013) upgrades in furnishings, bedding, electronics, household items and landscaping. All baths have just been renovated, with new polished limestone.

Managed by 30-A Cottages & Concierge, guests will experience first class service, from housekeeping to bike rental delivery and restaurant reservations. The home features upscale king bed linens, Supima cotton bath towels and luxury toiletries.

Rates are all inclusive of taxes, housekeeping & credit card fees and pool heating (Fall through Spring seasons.) There are no additional charges. Guests who book for a week minimum (seven nights) receive a complimentary mid-stay house cleaning/linen change.

There are three spacious king master bedrooms and a bedroom with two twin beds. All four of these bedroms have full, connecting baths. There is also a fifth bedroom, with built-in bunks for two. Two twin beds are in the kids' attic TV/playroom. There's also a Pac N' Play on site for baby/toddler use, as well as a high chair.

The second floor master has a 50' TV, a double vanity, large jetted tub and a steam shower. Guests can relax in an oversized chaise lounge chair (in the private sitting room overlooking the Gulf) or work at the desk. It's a perfect area for reading - day or night.

The other two spacious masters have French doors opening to the covered brick porch, facing the Gulf. One bedroom has a pool courtyard view, as well. Both first floor masters have new TVs and desks.

All four full baths are tiled in polished limestone,with top-of-the-line fixtures. The three master baths have double vanities and ample storage space. The twin bedroom bath has a single vanity and a large tiled tub/shower with an outside entry door directly into the shower.

There are two living/media areas in the home. Children will love the cozy 'Pirates of the Caribbean' play/TV room on the third floor, with two twin beds. The large living room (with home theatre system and a wood burning fireplace) seats ten guests comfortably.

The second floor living area has an open floor plan, with the kitchen, living and dining areas adjoining. There is also a powder room on that floor.

The main dining table seats eight, but there is another dining/game table for four, as well as four bar stools at the counter level kitchen island. The second floor porch, the tower area and pool courtyard also have dining tables.

The kitchen has two full sized dishwashers, a 48' refrigerator, a 48' range (with two ovens and a griddle), food warming lamps and a warming drawer, plus an adjacent wet bar, with an ice maker and a beverage/wine cooler. It's truly a cook's kitchen with Calphalon Professional cookware, Cuisinart food processors, Cutco knives and Villeroy & Boch china. There is island seating for four, with a counter area TV.

The fully equipped laundry room has a large capacity washer and dryer, and a commercial ice maker (just off the pool.) There's a coffee bar/microwave area for early risers and a deep laundry sink, built-in ironing board, etc.

A gulf view, studio carriage house is also available on property for larger paries (see #210320). The carriage house has a king bed, living area, full sized kitchen and laundry room. Carriage house guests may not use the pool/courtyard area, unless someone rents both properties.

Rosemary Beach has numerous on-property amenities within walking distance: restaurants and shopping, four community pools (including one indoors), tennis and fitness centers, children's playgrounds and greens for kids athletic activities and a full-service spa, hair and nail
salon.

Some grocery staples are available at Wild Oliver Market, but a Publix and Winn Dixie are less than 10 minutes away, along with a CVS pharmacy.

The new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport has direct flights from many major cities. It 's serviced by Delta and Southwest. The airport is 25 minutes from Rosemary Beach. Pick up and drop off service is available through 30-A Cottages and Concierge. They can also arrange for any activity, including beach chair and bike rentals (with free delivery). Reservations can also be made for fishing, golf and dining. Baby items are also avalable (@additional fees) but there is a complimentary high chair and a Pac N'Play in the house.

Everything you need for a great vacation is at the Johnson Cottage, in Rosemary Beach.

Location

Walk to shopping and dining, four community pools, (including an indoor pool), tennis and fitness centers, several large grass greens for kids' sports activities, plus two kids' playground with swings, slides, etc. Rosemary Beach also has a full service spa (massage, facials, hair and nails.) There are 7 restuarants within Rosemary Beach and 5 more within walking distance. Numerous shops, selling clothing, gifts, souvenirs, home furnishings, etc. are in Rosemary.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We live in Atlanta, and have a 17 year old son. We've owned properties on 30-A since 1985. We built two at Seaside, and also built this home and carriage house at Rosemary. We feel so strongly about Rosemary Beach that we bought and renovated another rental property there.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We were one of the first homeowners in nearby Seaside but the crowds, traffic, noise, property density and narrow streets finally drove us out. Moving to Rosemary Beach eliminated all those issues. We also wanted to be closer to the beach, enjoy fabulous gulf views and have a swimming pool. We've never looked back. All 3 of our properties were booked this spring, and we actually rented at another new beautiful 30-A community. There were two restaurants on-site (one was marginal and you had to be a member to dine at the other.) We were all in the car (or on bikes) daily - going back to Rosemary! We were homesick for one of our houses, but we really missed being able to walk everywhere - for lattes, meals, quick grocery items, etc.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the gulf views, the close proximity to the beach and the many amenities the house has to offer - such as the pool courtyard area, home theatre and two fireplaces. The interior architecture of the house and the decor are beautiful, spacious and comfortable. We love the convenience of having restaurants, shops, a fabulous indoor pool, workout facility, tennis courts, a bank, post office and spa/hair salon in Rosemary Beach. Other restaurants and shops (outside RB) are also in walking distance. Full service grocery stores, a pharmacy and other restaurants are less than a 10 minute drive. A huge movie, restaurant, shopping and entertainment complex (Pier Park) is within 15 minutes, but we rarely venture that far away.
