The A&P Cottage is located within the Town of Rosemary Beach, situated on the north side of 30A just steps from Vivo Day Spa. When you enter this award-winning Home of the Year (as featured in Metropolitan Home Magazine), you are struck by its rich colors and dramatic details. The handsome A&P Cottage provides a casual, comfortable setting while embracing the traditions of Rosemary Beach. Located where three pedestrian boardwalks meet, A&P's quiet setting is a short stroll from the beach, four magnificent pools, world class dining, or one of the many green neighborhood parks.
On the first floor, you will find three queen-size bedrooms and two baths. Choose to relax in the romantic Master Suite, or enjoy the privacy and comfort of the adjacent guest rooms. Shuttered porches and cozy furnishings add to the charm. For the extended family, there is an additional twin daybed near the guest rooms and queen sleeper sofa upstairs.
The second floor is a spacious living area, with a fireplace in the living/dining room, a half bath, and a true cook’s kitchen. Enjoy the breezes on the long wood porch, or venture up to the third floor observation tower for expansive vistas of Rosemary Beach. What a wonderful place to catch up on a long-postponed novel or toast the setting sun as it slips into the Gulf of Mexico. You might be surprised how quickly the A&P Cottage feels like your very own home.

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: We are A&P- not to be confused with old grocery money! We are standing in front of our lot that we purchased in 1998. 'A' is an architect and designed the A&P Cottage (as well as a dozen others in Rosemary Beach and along 30-A). 'P' is in Health Care, but is more of an 'architect wanna-be'. Our cottage was completed in 2001 and has provided an amazing setting for many gatherings with friends and family.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We began visiting coastal Walton County in the late 1980's, drawn by the natural beauty of the beaches, and emerging Traditional Neighborhood Design of Seaside, and later Rosemary Beach. We choose our lot in Rosemary Beach based on the quiet board walk location and the ability to build a 3rd floor tower. 15 years later, the town has matured and we have become more a part of this community than we ever imagined. We think of this as a second home that we are fortunate enough to share with others, more than a vacation rental.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: A good trip to the A&P Cottage for us means never having to start the car after arriving. Stroll the boardwalk to a beach chair with a favorite magazine, or for a sunset toast, cycle the town and explore the unique architecture and design, visit one of the many park greens for a round of bocce, or head to Town Square for great dining and shopping. The biggest decision of the trip is usually deciding which of the 4 amazing pools to visit next!
