Private Homes house description
Ahava Cottage is truly one of the premier rental properties in beautiful Rosemary Beach. Both Ahava and our other home, the adjacent Sababa Carriage House (see VRBO listing #195247) are located on the desirable Gulf side, are just a 2 minute walk to the beach and even closer to the fabulous Coquina Pool. All of Rosemary's most popular amenities -- beach, community pools, shopping, restaurants, fitness center, tennis, playground, bicycle rental -- are within a 5 minute walk of Ahava yet privacy and seclusion are yours as you sit on one of the outdoor porches and listen to the sounds of the sea.
Professionally and exquisitely decorated, Ahava has a chic and contemporary feel. It features an open living room with high ceilings, an upgraded kitchen with top of the line stainless steel appliances, wine cooler, and an amazing antique French Oak dining table. One of two master bedrooms is located on the first floor. The second floor features another master bedroom, an additional bedroom with 2 twin beds, and a bunk room with built-ins. A family room/sitting area (complete with sleeper sofa) and an office are also found on the second floor. The second level balcony gives you a partial view of the Gulf. A spiral staircase with custom railing leads to the third floor loft area that has partial Gulf views and full-size futon.
Other features include granite countertops and Travertine flooring on the first floor, natural pecan hardwood flooring on the second and third floors, custom Roman shades, maple woodwork and built-ins throughout, oversized showers with Rainheads, and custom maple platform king-size beds in both master suites. TVs are in every bedroom as well as in the second floor family room/sitting area and there is a flat-panel 42" TV in the main floor living room. There is a grill, outdoor shower, and ample outdoor furniture for you to lounge in, including a hammock next to the fountain.
While at Rosemary Beach do as little or as much as you like. You can spend the entire day on the beach or take advantage of the many activities available to you -- bicycle riding, parasailing, golfing, shopping, and tennis just to name a few. Rosemary has four community pools, one of which is heated and fully enclosed and another -- the Coquina Pool -- is heated when needed. Pamper yourself at the Solace Day Spa, take a class at the fitness center, do some shopping, eat in one of the many nearby restaurants, and rent a bicycle for the day. Whatever you do, you can't help but be taken in by some of the most beautiful, white sandy beaches you'll find anywhere in the world and by the elegant, serene, "upscale Mayberry" surroundings of Rosemary Beach.

Great Vacation! Great House!
Great Vacation! Great House!
Our stay at Ahava Cottage was wonderful! This modern vacation home is stylish and comfortable with all the amenities and plenty of room. Ahava is the perfect location with a very short walk to the beach and the pool. Town is a pleasant stroll as well. The owners were very easy and helpful and had great tips for a fun-filled vacation. I would definitely recommend this vacation home and hope to be back soon!

We keep coming back

We have rented this house twice in the last two years and will look for it FIRST for every future stay in Rosemary. It is our idea of the perfect house. It is so beautifully decorated, spacious, light and airy. Our favorite thing is that it is such a short walk to the beach that we can pop back and forth throughout the day -- important when you have small children. It's also directly across the street from the playground, and I appreciate that I can send my older kids out to play and know it's not far - and I can also sit on the covered porch overlooking the park and watch over the playground. The owners have always been very gracious and easy to work with. Thank you for letting our family enjoy your beautiful home. We will be back again!

Lovely home, well equipped and maintained. The owners were very pleasant and easy to work with. We had an absolutely wonderful vacation. The home is just a block from the beach and right across the street from a great kids playground. The only thing I would note for renters is that the living space and master are on the ground floor. Those sleeping on the third floor have a lot of stairs and there is no bathroom on that floor. The third floor would be great for kids and teenagers but doesn't work very well for adults.

Owner response: Thank you for your review! We're so glad you enjoyed your time in our cottage, and hope you'll consider returning some day. Future renters, please note: The house has 2 master suites -- one on the main level and one on the second level. The third floor is a loft area with 2 beds, a TV, and a foosball table, but no bathroom. Typically, teenagers choose to stay there, but it's usually not used as a sleeping space. Almost always, guests sleep on the main level and one flight up on the second level. Together, there's plenty of space for 8 people to sleep comfortably.
Wonderful stay at Ahava Cottage
Wonderful stay at Ahava Cottage
Situated in a quiet corner of Rosemary Beach, Ahava Cottage is short walk to the beach or pool. The house is immaculate, very comfortable and spacious. The upstairs screened porch was a favorite place to relax, read and enjoy the sunsets. The owners are accommodating and quick to respond. We wouldn't hesitate to return to Ahava on a future vacation to Rosemary Beach.

My family and I stayed 5 nights in the Ahava Cottage. This place is no cottage, it is a mansion as are most of all the other "cottages" in Rosemary Beach. The Ahava Cottage is in the perfect spot...about 70 yards to the beach and pool. The screened in porches were our favorite...they kept the bugs out and the little one in. Ahava is also right across the street from a wonderful playground. There is also a matching smaller guest house (aka carriage house) behind it, which would make this property great for a family vacation with the in-laws. I would highly recommend anyone looking for places in Rosemary Beach to stay in this Cottage.

A week at the beach !
A week at the beach !
We travelled to Rosemary Beach and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We found the Ahava Cottage to be just as advertised and very accommodating to our needs. Our reservation process went smoothly and the owners were very receptive to any questions. The check in/out processes were seamless. The home was nicely appointed, well cared for and a pleasure to stay in during our week. The close proximity to the beach made frequent trips during the day very easy. The small town area of Rosemary was very quaint and offered many dining, shopping and treat options. We enjoyed short trips to Panama City Beach, Seaside and Destin attractions. Hopefully, we will have another opportunity to return to Ahava for another great week.

My family along with another stayed in this home in April 2010. Four adults and 5 children, 2 four year olds, 2 eight year olds and an eleven year old. This house was perfect for us, 2 masters and lots of space for the children. On the first floor a master and large bathroom, large family room, powder room, great kitchen with large table and 2 barstools and a laundry room. On the second floor one bedroom with 2 twins and a bunk room with 1 set of bunk beds, sharing a bathroom. Also on the second floor a master and bath, sitting area with a tv, outside the sitting area a large screened porch with a chair and sofa. On the third floor a very big loft area with a double bed and a twin bed, tv, desk and lots of kid space. Our 2 eight year old girls loved this area! The house is nicely decorated and very comfortable with ample outside space for beach chairs, toys etc. and an outside shower. Probably the best thing about this home is proximity to the beach and the park in front of the house. Its literally a 2 minute walk or less to the beach, so so close!!! The enclosed park is so close we could let the kids go there by themselves and see them from the porch. They loved it. The location of this home alone is enough to rent it again. The street is very quiet with little traffic. The owners are wonderful and very easy to work with. Our families highly recommend this house to anyone with small children and anyone who wants a convenient and lovely home to rent.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
When we first came to Rosemary Beach 4 years ago for a wedding, we fell in love with the place. Having traveled the world, we knew this was one of the most beautiful spots we could ever find and became intent on owning a home here.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Unique Benefits at this Carriage House Our home is very close to both the beach and to a beautiful, large, negative-edge pool -- both are about a minute away. It's just a short walk to the main square in Rosemary. Once we're here, we find ourselves getting around more by bicycle than by car. The house itself is spacious, bright, and open.
