About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12). Houses rent separately.

The main house (listing #113953) and carriage house (listing #120654) can be rented TOGETHER or SEPARATELY. Our rate listings on this particular page are for renting the main house only. If interested in renting the carriage house and main house together (making it the full 5 bedrooms, which sleeps 14), please let us know in your request for a rate quote that you are looking to rent BOTH houses. If you click the "Book it" tab on this page, you are only renting the main house.

The following point is THE MOST IMPORTANT thing to consider when deciding which beach house you want to rent: IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A 5BR IN ROSEMARY, THIS IS THE BEST 'BANG FOR YOUR BUCK'! 'Shore To Please' is truly one of the premier rental properties IN Rosemary Beach! While many other properties on VRBO claim to be 'in' Rosemary Beach, only to let you down when you start reading the fine print and find out that they are really not (OR worse yet, you don't find out the truth until you actually get there!!), this property most definitely is.... It is located on the eastern side of Rosemary beach (south side of HWY 30-A), approximately 200 yards off the beach!

Enjoy the magnificent West Indies decor in both the main house and the spacious carriage house (VRBO #120654). The four bedroom two and a half Bath main house comes complete with a VERY big 44 inch Projection screen TV/DVD in the living room, a 34 inch Flat screen TV in the master, (Not to mention the BRAND NEW 32' VIZIO flat panel HDTV/DVD if you rent the carriage house too!) There is a wonderful third floor loft area with unforgettable gulf views, a trundle bed (sleeps 2), a 28' FLAT SCREEN TV/DVD area for the kids (or the adults that just want to get away from it all), and even a giant swing (sleeps one VERY comfortably). Yes, that's right, THERE IS A TV/DVD SET UP IN EVERY BEDROOM!! The Master BR has a BRAND NEW Serta King Pillowtop Mattress that is heavenly to sleep on, at night AND for those mid-day naps!! The wrap-around balcony off the master bedroom is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunset. With over 3200 square feet of space (Main and Carriage houses), there is PLENTY of room for large families and multiple families to enjoy the beach together!

The carriage house is a full studio (one bedroom, one bath) which can be rented separately (VRBO #120654) or with the main house (combining to make the full 5BR/ 3.5BA). The carriage house comes complete with a queen bed as well as inflatable queen bed. It has a kitchen and its own Washer/ dryer in the garage directly below. 18 foot ceilings, a BRAND NEW VIZIO flat panel 32' HDTV/DVD player, and comfortable sitting area are all part of its beach-infused charm!

Outside the house, there are 2 showers, and a patio area, complete with antique cast iron table and chairs. This setup is PERFECT for the mid-day lunch or snack time for the kids, after playing at the beach. There's even an OUTDOOR FIREPLACE, which is ideal for the fall, winter, and spring!! Just imagine, relaxing on a cool, brisk night, enjoying a nice dinner, with a roaring fire there to warm you....all underneath the stars!! PERFECT!!

Rosemary Beach is designed by the same town planners who created Seaside 20 years ago and is set high upon the dunes overlooking the pristine white sands and crystal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It is a well-planned community, highly accommodating to pedestrians.

The location of 'Shore To Please' is quite ideal as you can easily access anywhere in Rosemary - the Town Center with its restaurants and a sweet shop, the four neighborhood pools, the tennis courts, the Solace Day Spa, the fitness center, or the beach - in ten minutes or less. There is a WONDERFUL children's playground just out the back door (litterally 'in' the back yard!!) that the children of past renters have fallen in love with!

Two of the four pools, the world-famous Coquina pool {heated when needed} is one street over and the Sky Pool {heated year-round and fully enclosed with climate control --even the FLOOR is heated!!} is a short distance away. The vibrant colors of nature, pristine boardwalks, expansive green common areas and native wildflowers, including blooming rosemary the community takes its name from, all combine to make Rosemary Beach a very unique and desirable destination. There's even a GOLF COURSE just minutes away!! Call Origins for tee times!

Rosemary Beach also has a bank {Amsouth} with ATM; a cozy COFFEE SHOPPE, Movie Rentals, a spa {Solace Day Spa} that offers a wide variety of relaxing spa treatments, including massage therapy, luxurious facials, nails services, and refreshing body treatments, all in a unique tropical setting with trained professionals; and a state of the art, brand new, fitness center- the Rosemary Beach Fitness Center {a nominal fee for guests-$15/day, $70/week} with top of the line resistance and cardiovascular training equipment with degreed and certified personal training and instruction.

Other classes and programs include yoga, taichi, pilates, water aerobics, cardio circuit, group fitness events, one on one training, wellness, nutrition, and more. During the summer, 'Camp Rosemary' is great fun for the kids, while the parents can enjoy some much-needed 'alone time'! Pier Park is a new shopping/ entertainment center that is just to the east of Rosemary Beach (about a mile). Pier Park has all the shopping you need, and also THE BEST MOVIE THEATRE in north Florida!!

About The Owner


What makes this house unique

I love that the house is only 5 houses from the beach! It is protected from the surf spray, yet only a quick journey to the sand!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was an absolute delight to stay at! The management staff was friendly and helpful with suggesting things to do in the area. The beach is no more than a minute's walk! My fam and I will be back next year!

Wonderful New Year

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 brought in the new year at "Shore to Please." We had a relaxing time in the home and enjoyed our time together. The house is well equipped and had everything our crew needed to enjoy our stay. Aaron, Martha, and Rhonda were very nice and a pleasure to meet. The kids enjoyed a warm day splashing in the surf and even the heated Coquina pool. We look forward to returning to Rosemary for another family vacation.

Superb location! Close to pool AND beach

  • 5 of 5

My family (we have a large one) and another family have always rented 4 BR houses in Rosemary Beach. We've been doing it for the past 5 years, and avg spending about $7500 a week, going through the Rosemary rental office. We tried something new this year, and boy were we glad we did. Not only did we save $3000, but we got a 5 BR instead of a 4 BR!! The difference in space was huge. Obviousl, saving all that money didnt hurt either. Lets just say that we had ALOT more money to spend on the nice restaurants up and down 30A this year. We will absolutely be renting "Shore To Please" again next year for spring break, and possibly summer too. The loft and the downstairs queen bedroom were welcome additions that proved to be very helpful for all the people we had in our party. The pictures and description of the house were spot on, and the pool REALLY IS just one street over! The beach took us no more than 2 minutes to get down to each day (with children). I would reccomend this house to everyone wanting to have a fabulous time at Rosemary Beach, and save some money at the same time!

The WORST HOUSE In Rosemary !!!! Generously provided one star...

  • 1 of 5

We have been staying in Rosemary, Seaside and Watercolor for the last 15 years and have never had an experience like this . Not only was this home completely outdated in decor and furnishings but barely in working order. The air conditioning unit was so old it kept freezing up and when they finally came to check on it their solution was to keep the house at a much warmer " 76 degrees". The kitchen was a disgrace. Our college age kids apartments have a more equipped kitchen. The kitchen inventory was a mass collection of hodge podge old and worn out appliances, pots and pans. We had 25 coffee cups, but only wine glass, a blender base without a top, no dish towels, a non functioning ice maker , and every cabinet was jammed packed by all the rubbish that we had to clear out a cabinet just to put our groceries away. The bathrooms had the bare minimum amount in towels and one of the bathrooms had a malfunctioning switch. This house had a severe roach problem , but not a single can of roach repellent spray to be found. In addition, we found the managerial staff to be rude and unresponsive. The only positive aspect in renting this house is that it was within walking distance to the beach!! Future renters should be aware !!! Major disappointment.

We Are Totally Hooked on this House!!

  • 5 of 5

We came in for a week long fishing trip for Spring Break. We did shore fishing and deep sea charter fishing. The shore fishing off Rosemary Beach is just terrific! And this house was in a prime location to get to the beach every morning. It's only about a three minute walk from the house, even carrying all our gear. The yard is walled-in and gated, so we felt safe leaving our fishing equipment outside on the patio.

This house was just great in every way. We had plenty of linens and towels, the beds were comfortable, and there's lots of windows. The fact that the kitchen is on the first floor was a big plus, too. Some of the other Rosemary houses we've rented have had the kitchen on the 2nd floor, which can be a bit inconvenient. We loved our stay here and will absolutely be back again next year!
