"The Beach Air Cottage was so great and I had a terrific experience with the manager, Gayle. She was so helpful when I initially booked the house four months ago and helped us add an extra day, which we totally needed. This was our first trip to Rosemary Beach and our first vacation with our 27-month old. We didn't know what to expect except that the area came highly rated by several friends. The house is very spacious, included all kitchen necessities for us--even kid plates, bowls, and forks/spoons (I nearly brought my own non-breakables for my son, but didn't)--and the stackable washer/dryer was so handy (the house provided some laundry detergent and dryer sheets!). Several reasons I booked this house (never having been to RB) were the real bedroom (not loft), the extra half-bathroom, the full bath w/tub, and the W/D. The fact that they also include two bikes, a wagon, and toys were added bonus!! I couldn't find that matched in my searches for a place to stay. Since my son still naps, we wanted a real bedroom and door to close while the adults hung out downstairs to clean, watch TV, etc. My husband used the main level half-bath as "his bathroom." Since we are a family with a small child, the playground across from us was great, as was the couple of minutes walk (literally a few minutes--you can get there easily if not waiting on a distracted small child (ha) and come back to the house to retrieve any left items within 5 min) to the Boardwalk A (with handicap ramps), and also the few steps walk to the Coquina Pool. We just loved the location and even though the main house was rented, we didn't feel like we were all on top of one another. We loved using the gas grill for several meals and the wagon and beach chairs and other items in the garage are also a plus. Honestly, we only really needed to bring bathing suits and towels with us because Beach Air has all the beach items needed, even a cooler, umbrellas, chairs, tubes, boogie boards, etc. The only thing we decided we need to bring with us next time is a portable drying rack for all our wet clothes, towels, etc. Overall, we truly couldn't have asked for a better house, location or scenery! We loved the whole experience and hoping next year our little one will actually like the sand. :-)"
