About the property

2 Story Home, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8) across from pool

This beautiful beach cottage is all about location! With just a few minutes’ walk to the private beach access which leads to the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico beach and the community pool directly across the street, you couldn’t ask for a better location to have your family vacation. Casual coastal elegance defines this professionally decorated home in the comfortable Pottery Barn style throughout the home. As you enter the home you sense a feeling of calm within your surroundings; the perfect place to unwind and find peace of mind.

The cottage is a typical Florida style reversible floor plan, as is found in many Rosemary Beach homes, with the main living areas located on the second floor. This home has a bright and open floor plan with a large kitchen, breakfast bar, formal dining area and spacious living area with cypress planks lining the vaulted ceilings, a walk out balcony and half bath. There is a flat screen T.V. and stereo system upstairs with built in ceiling speakers in the living area as well as in the master bedroom. The cottage is equipped with cable T.V. as well as wireless Internet.

The kitchen is equipped with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The bar counter is a perfect size for breakfast, afternoon snacks or cocktail hour. The cabinets are stocked with cups, plates, utensils, dinnerware, cooking pots and pans.

The first floor is occupied by the master suite, two guest bedrooms, a hall bunk area with twin size bunks and laundry room with a full-size washer/dryer.

The master suite is complete with a flat screen TV, dresser, queen size bed, walk in closet and opens to its own relaxing porch setting. The master en suite is equipped with a large walk in tiled shower.

The guest bedrooms within this exclusive home are dawned with a peaceful touch of color. The first guest bedroom is complete with a queen size bed, dresser and flat screen TV. The second guest bedroom is complete with two twin size beds, dresser and flat screen TV. This is a perfect arrangement for children, teens, or any additional guests who may be traveling with you.

This beautiful family beach cottage is located off scenic HWY 30A in award winning Magnolia by the Sea neighborhood, just steps from a private beach access and across from the heated pool. It is located between Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach to the east and Seacrest Beach to the west. Destin is a 35-minute drive to the west, and Panama City is a 20-minute drive to the East.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to 30A from New Orleans.

The cottage is exactly as described and very comfortable. The beds, linens, towels, water pressure, W/D, fully stocked (appliance wise) kitchen, AC, etc were all in great condition- making us feel right at home.

This unit is the closet cottage to the pool. Super easy access and a pleasant 5 min walk to the beach. The whole neighborhood is well maintained. there were only two of us, but this could comfortably house 4 couples. There are so many different areas, private porches and entrances, you can still maintain privacy even if you're traveling with a group.

Hope to be back.

Great Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Me and My Family recently stayed at a Magnolia Cottage property. The unit was very roomy, clean, and stocked with the necessary items, to make our Trip memorable. We were just across the street from the Pool, and within a 3 min walk to the beautiful beach. The cost of the stay was very reasonable, and we won't hesitate to stay there again. Hopefully that will be not too far in the future. Thank you management for a memorable stay.

Gorgeous Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage!. We`ve rented other cottages but none were as clean and comfortable as this one. We loved the nautical decor and every room is tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well supplied with everything you need to enjoy a meal at home. Having a bathroom with every bedroom was pure luxury and made it so easy for everyone to get ready for evenings out. The neighborhood is so cute and very quiet. We`ll be back for sure!!

Visit over Labor Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautiful and very clean. We enjoyed our visit very much. The beds were comfortable. My only recommendations are to put some non-skid stuff under the rugs because they slide very easily and it is an accident waiting to happen. My other recommendation is to have more lights outside. It was very dark at night coming in. Other than that our stay was very nice. We would stay there again in the future.

Owner's Response: thanks for the recommendations. We put some non skid under the rugs. Also the solar outdoor lights must not have been working properly. We have them working now.
