You will be delighted by the luxury of this spacious and centrally located home. The Great Escape has a private pool and courtyard and is a short four minute walk on the adjacent boardwalk from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Rosemary’s town center is just steps away.

The Great Escape’s three stories of living space comfortably sleeps 12 in its five bedrooms and has five and one half baths. The separate carriage house with it's own full kitchen was recently updated and can be rented separately during the off season. In addition to the private pool and courtyard, the Great Escape has a large front porch with Adirondack chairs and a swing as well as two second floor covered decks, one with a comfy swinging daybed perfect for afternoon naps.

The first floor offers an expansive living area with a 55” HDTV and plenty of comfortable seating, a formal dining area with seating for eight, study/den with queen sofa bed that can be closed off for privacy. The gourmet kitchen and breakfast area (which seats up to 12) includes a large refrigerator, Jenn-air six-burner gas cooktop, dishwasher, ice maker, wine refrigerator, oven, microwave, and is completely stocked for whipping up gourmet meals. The kitchen opens up to the beautiful courtyard featuring a Weber three-burner gas grill. This very private setting offers an additional living area with seating for six around the outdoor table and three lounges for relaxing around the pool. The pool features a waterfall and lighting at night and can be heated to 82 degrees at no additional cost. The main level also has a half bath and washer/dryer.

The second floor has three bedrooms; two king bedrooms with their own full bathrooms, TV’s, and covered decks and a kids bunk room with four single beds and its own bathroom. The bedrooms open on to a cozy seating area with it's own tv.

About Kathy Herman

Homeowners, Jacien and Laura/ Tom and Kathy of Atlanta, Ga

The couples are good friends and love to vacation in Rosemary together and with their families!

Kathy Herman purchased this house in 2008

Why Kathy Herman chose Rosemary Beach

After vacationing in Rosemary Beach for a number of years, we decided to purchase a home here. We looked at a number of homes, but we fell in love with the location and design of this home. Each year we work on updating and improving what we offer to our guests. The four of us love the unique quality of the Rosemary Beach community and we think you will love it too! An incredible place to unwind and relax!!

What makes this house unique

Since we live in larger cities, we love to park our cars for the week and go everywhere we want on foot or bike. There are coffee shops, restaurants and a lovely spa within a one minute walk. And of course, Rosemary is one of the most beautiful beaches in the WORLD!

We have leased vacation homes for over 25 years and without a doubt was the best house by far.

  • 5 of 5

It was presented as promised. Owner was great and was so accommodating during the process. We hope to lease it next year.

Truly a Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, close to beach, shops, restaurants and biking. Grandkids really enjoyed private heated pool and beach.

Loved that most everything we wanted to do was in walking distance, no need to drive, except to food store,

We would return and highly recommend The Great Escape to others.

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful. It was perfect for a large group. We love Rosemary Beach and this home was a perfect location. Just a block to shopping or the Farmer's Market on the green. The kids loved the heated pool on Spring Break. There was plenty of room for everyone. Even porches to escape the crowd for some quiet time. Loved this home can't wait to go back.

A Grandparent's Delight

  • 5 of 5

We have taken our ever growing family (3 daughters and a multitude of grandchildren) to The Great Escape, at spring break, for the past 4 years, and will do so again this spring. It works for all. The 3rd floor is described as "the master" but we put the couple with the youngest babies there-one crib in the laundry room, one in the hall, and grownups in the bedroom-privacy for all.

2nd floor has 2 master bedrooms, each with a bath, so the other 2 couples have privacy, while kids sleep together in the bunk room.

Best of all, the grandparents sleep out in the carriage house and never hear a thing.

Kitchen is great for a crowd, with the heated pool right out the door, kids will swim all day,in good weather and bad. The walk to beach is convenient (we feel no need to stay south of 30A).

The location is great- kids ride bikes without supervision and enjoy a degree of independence that is refreshing. The "cool" factor is sufficient to keep a teenager happy.

When we dine in Seaside/Watercolor, we are always glad we get to go home to Rosemary. We highly recommend The Great Escape.
