"I've been vacationing in Rosemary for the past 15yrs, staying in close to a dozed different homes, and this one was by far the best. I rented the Cottage and the Carriage House, and had them filled with family and friends. The three most unique aspects of this house that is hard to find in Rosemary is the view of the beach/ocean, the heated private pool, and the 4th story crows nest. I'm would actually guess that this house is the only house in Rosemary with these three specific features.
Arriving to a spacious two car garage is always a luxury underestimated.
Entering the house on the first floor, you have 2 multi bed rooms sharing a surprisingly nice bathroom. You also have 2 rooms with large beds, both of which have their own equally nice bathrooms.
The 2nd floor has the kitchen and main living area, with the incredibly large Master attached. There is an enormous wrap-around porch off both the Master and the Kitchen, with DIRECT views of the ocean...this is where we spent most of my time in the mornings and evenings. The main living area was very comfortable and cozy, and I enjoyed having access to both cable and satellite TV/music service. The dinning room table was enormous, allowing for all to dine together. You can feed and easily clean for an army out of this kitchen. HUGE stove top, two ovens, two dishwashers....etc! Great little butter pantry in the middle of the entire room as well, where many a cocktail was made.
The 3rd story has a really cozy multi bed room with a couch and a tv as well. This was an excellent area to put the younger kids to hang out and watch movies. It's also a pirate motif, so they all wanted to sleep in there as well.
Above that is the crows nest, which again is specious, where we often relaxed and enjoyed the ocean breezes. There is a high top table and chairs up there as well, which was nice to hang out and with some drinks and snacks.
Again, the private pool is such an appreciated luxury. The Rosemary public pools are wonderful...but having your own is the way to go. I can't imagine there is a larger private pool in Rosemary, plenty of tables, chairs, and lounge chairs.
From the pool area, you can walk out the gate, walk about 30 yards, and you're at the beach! You can never underestimate the convenience of being able to go back and forth from the beach and the house in just minutes.
I will say is that these were also VERY attentive home owners.
An awesome home!!!"
