Our Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Each spring for the past six years our family has rented this home. Our family first came to love the area eleven years ago for the spectacular emerald green water and white sandy beaches. We have stayed in many homes in the area but this home is perfectly suited for our family and friends. We almost did not write this review because we wanted to believe that this residence was especially for us.

The amenities at this residence are top quality. We feel spoiled every time we come. The decor is tastefully appointed, comfortable and welcoming. There is ample space and privacy for all the members of our family and friends. We especially appreciate the privacy of the downstairs master suite. We love the outdoor environment of this property it feels like a resort. There is a relaxing and private space for outdoor cooking and dining, and there is a swimming pool that our family enjoys when we do not want to go to the beach. We often bring our bikes to visit local markets, restaurants and beach. It is very peaceful to ride the bikes around, get exercise and soak in the beach air. We don’t need them, though. It is only a two minute stroll to the beach.

We always feel safe with ample security in the area. There is a patrol car that rides around the neighborhood and checks on every home at least every hour.

The process of renting has always been easy. Karen, the owner, is responsive and easy to deal with. The lock box to pick up and drop of the keys at the property is very convenient. The house has always been clean and ready for us.

We would recommend this property to any family or couple who wants to stay on the Emerald Coast. We will continue to rent this house, “our home away from home”. We always find this house and our stay at Rosemary beach to be very conducive to relaxation and rejuvenation.

Wonderful vacation house!

We loved everything about this house. The location and the amenities were top notch and the owner went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and welcome in her home. We can't wait to stay at the house again next year!

MORE THAN WE EXPECTED

  • 5 of 5

The owner went out of her way many times to answer our questions, continually.

WE knew exactly what we needed to expect upon our arrival. We had one question during our occupancy, and the owner answered it via email in about 1 hour. Getting along well with the owner is extremely important; give her an A plus on taking care of us

After being close into the major hub center; we were so lucky to know we were in her home a few blocks from the town noise... Every where we wanted to go in ROsemary was only 5 to 10 minutes max to get there. We loved the house and Rosemary Beach so so much that we have already scheduled our next week to arrive

We rent a lot, THIS was our favorite thus far!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing. The property was exactly as advertised. Clean, beautiful and luxurious. We had the most memorable trip with our family. We have now determined that our Rosemary Beach trips can only happen around the availability of this house! The pool was perfect for our kids. The location was perfect. The owner was awesome and responsive. No issues with our deposit. She was very good at answering all questions. Honestly, BEST rental experience ever!

Scarborough Fair Is Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and two young children thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is well-appointed and very clean. The location is perfect since it is just a short walk to the beach as well as the center of town.

This property is exceptional since it is spacious and offers its own private pool which our family thoroughly enjoyed. We certainly would not hesitate to book again!
