Guinn Family Vacation
"This is my first time to ever leave a review but given that we use these reviews to help determine locations, rental properties, dining establishments, etc...I thought I would return the favor. This was our first trip to Rosemary beach, or anywhere on 30A for that matter, but had very high expectations based on the praise from family and friends whom had vacationed here.
We have three daughters, ages 8, 11 and 13 who lead very active lives as do my wife and I and we wanted to choose a destination that was centered around relaxation and convenience. As with many of our vacations, much of the enjoyment and memories come from the location of our stay and how well they fit our family needs while catering to our desire for convenience to the beach and eateries. This house did not disappoint at all. It was ideally located next to the large, open green area which allowed my daughters to play volleyball. It was also perfectly located on the south side of 30A right next to the beach entrance. This allowed for minimal trip time in walking to the beach and allowed my family the opportunity to "come and go" as they pleased while we relaxed on the beach. It was also situated right next to the pool for maximum convenience to which our daughters could enjoy without worry. The pool hours were from 9-9 which was fine as the activity in the pool were not an issue with sleep.
The house was perfectly suited for my family with 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 bathrooms that made the house feel like home, even with 4 ladies to tend to. The house was well laid out and allowed the family to stay connected while providing ample space to enjoy privacy if needed. The porches were a great feature that expanded the living space and allowed you to enjoy the beautiful evenings with views of the ocean.
Overall, I was extremely pleased with the experience that my family had at Rosemary beach and this property only added to the experience. We will definitely be back and I would recommend this house without reservation.
I will also use this review to compliment the property management, whom were very responsive, focused on customer service and added to our vacation experience. Thank you.

"Hubby and I just got back from spending an incredible week in this beautiful home. We were so relaxed that we did not get out of our pj's until noon on some days. Sat at the dining room table every morning with the doors opened wide (65 degrees and perfect weather for open doors) enjoying an extra cup of coffee at a leisurely pace. This is one of those cases where the pictures on the VRBO listing do not do the property justice. You have to stand in the middle of the main living space to fully appreciate the panoramic views that go on for miles. Every consideration has been given to guest comfort. Beds are cozy, towels are fluffy and appliances are top of the line. Hot water is in slightly short supply (in January) but we were warned about this ahead of time and managed easily by staggering showers. We both packed exercise clothes and were looking forward to hitting the gym together every day. Did not happen once. Exercise was walking on the beach and yoga in the living room surrounded by the sun and surf. Make sure you take advantage of the heated pool. We almost did not as it was pretty chilly outside, but one visit and we were hooked!"

"This year was the seventh year our family has visited Rosemary Beach to vacation together as a family. We selected "Sea Dog" this year and it was absolutely fantastic! The home was fabulously decorated with every convenience you can imagine. The kitchen was well appointed and equipped with everything needed for meal prep. The bedrooms are beautiful with comfy beds and lines and all have attached private bathrooms. The 3rd level bunk room for the children was great for our kids! It is a close walk (2 minutes at most) to the beach and the town center. Such a convenient location! Working with the property management company was a delightful experience. What more could you ask for in a vacation home!?!? This was a great vacation for the 12 of us. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home. We'll be back!"

"We are returning Kathy's Cottage visitors... We absolutely loved the updated kitchen, hardwood floors, and light/bright decor!!! My teenagers met new friends and loved having them over to play pool on the 3rd floor. The "hide-away beds up on the 3rd floor were also a favorite place to sleep, if they did not sleep on the 1st floor in the bunk bed room! The ENTIRE family found everything we needed to bring to the beach: towels, wagon for toting things to and from, umbrellas, sand toys, etc. We also found bikes in the garage for the entire family to take our daily ride to the Donut Truck for breakfast. We are ALREADY planning and looking forward to our next trip to Kathy's Cottage!!!
PS-The kids also loved visiting the "Sugar Shack" which is walking distance from the cottage."
