About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 5 full Baths plus outdoor shower, sleeps 8-10

The calendar is always kept current. If your desired dates show as available, they are. Our rates are a comparative bargain as the housekeeping is already included in the price , I charge no booking/processing fee and I pay the credit card fees too. The idea is to make the cost as transparent as possible with no extra surprises.

You will be delighted with this gorgeous SOUTH of 30-A home located at 89 Hopetown Lane in Rosemary Beach.

LOCATION

The front of the house faces one of Rosemary's charming pedestrian wooden boardwalks that leads directly to beach walkover F. Out the front door and it is just a one minute stroll to the beach.

Behind Amsler Cottage is downtown Rosemary and The Pearl, Rosemary's new inn. There is easy access to the shops, the restaurants, and the hustle and bustle of town activity . If you want to be near the town center, the Western Green and the Gulf, this is an ideal location.

First Floor Bedroom, Queen Bed, double trough sink, shower, TV

Second Floor Bedroom, King Bed, Double sink , shower, TV, porch

Second Floor Bedroom, Queen bed, tub/shower combo, TV, porch

FIRST FLOOR

Professionally decorated, the furnishings strike a perfect balance between comfort and elegance. Unique lighting fixtures, luxurious fabrics and elegant furnishings abound with hardwood floors, mahogany French doors and custom finishes throughout. There are 3 fully furnished porches and an enclosed courtyard to enjoy as well.

The first floor is open with three sets of mahogany French doors facing the boardwalk. Watch as pedestrians stroll down the boardwalk to the beach while dining, watching TV or reading in front of the gas fireplace. There are 5 flat screen TVs in the house. Movies and tv shows can be streamed through Netflix and there is wifi as well. (We also provide HBO and Starz as a courtesy to our guests.) Custom made slipcovers and sea grass rugs create an upscale yet comfortable atmosphere.

KITCHEN

The fully equipped gourmet kitchen features granite and tumbled marble finishes, Bosch dishwasher, gas burners, a separate beverage fridge and custom made cabinetry. Seating for 8 at the dining table as well as counter top seating provides room for 10.

Also on the first floor is a guestroom with a queen bed for those that prefer not to climb stairs. Crisp linens dress the bed and there is a beautiful full en suite bath.Travertine tiles, a trough sink and a rain head shower make this bathroom a true spa experience.

There is an additional interior full bath on the first floor for everyone,( the fifth one), which has a unique connecting indoor-outdoor shower. The laundry is also located on the first floor.

SECOND FLOOR

The second floor has 3 true bedrooms, all with private en suite baths. No beds/bunks are built into the hallways and all beds are real beds, i.e. no roll away, sofa beds or futons. All beds are supplied with high quality mattresses and linens.

The master suite holds a romantic king size canopy bed.French doors lead out onto a porch with Gulf views and comfortable furniture. The large master bath has unique double custom made sinks, travertine floors and a large shower.

The bunk room has 4 individual custom built extra long twin beds and an en suite bath with tub and shower. Each bunk has its own light and curtains that can be drawn for privacy. It is ideally suited for kids but we have had many happy adults sleep there as well.

The fourth guest room has a beautiful antique white queen bed and mahogany french doors that lead to a large screened- in porch. The porch is equipped with a custom made hanging swing bed for naps and another area to just read and relax. This room also has an en suite bath with tub and shower.

THIRD FLOOR

Up a spiral staircase to the third floor is an extra space for those occasional rainy days. Featuring a built in daybed, a flat screen tv, and a DVD/VCR, it is a great open space for kids to play or a private retreat for an afternoon nap. Books, games and children's movies are provided for your enjoyment.

EXTERIOR

The back courtyard of our cottage is walled and has a big built in natural gas grill, comfortable seating for 10 at a custom made table and a lovely fountain. There is no carriage house on property which is a huge plus. Note: Many of Rosemary Beach homes have a garage/carriage house that is built behind or adjacent to the main one. Unless you rent both structures, parking availability, the size of the outdoor space as well as privacy may be affected. No sharing with strangers here as the outdoor space at this home is yours alone to grill, dine and enjoy.

We have included the floor plans in the photo section. Our guests' comfort is our priority and we want to make sure that the layout works for your needs.

Overseen by 30A Cottages and Concierge, guests will experience in-house check in and first class service from housekeeping to restaurant and activity reservations. High grade sheets and towels as well as organic bath and toiletries are provided. Most importantly, should you need or want anything, a staff member will be on hand to insure you are taken care of.

The rental rates for Amsler Cottage are arrived at by undercutting the prices of the homes around us. Our goal is to provide an excellent value by cutting out high commission rates to a management company while still providing the onsite convenience of a concierge service. There is no add on 'processing fee' and the housekeeping costs are already included in the rates.

POOLS/TENNIS/FITNESS CENTER

There are 4 beautiful community pools in Rosemary Beach open to owners and guests. Closest to us are the Barbados and Coquina Pools, each @ a 5 minute walk. The current access code will be provided prior to arrival. Both the tennis and fitness center are available for a fee. (Even homeowners are required to pay for usage of these amenities).

PARKING

There are 2 available spaces on Hopetown Lane. One is in an offstreet arbor and the other is on the lane, both directly behind the house.

A 50% deposit is due at time of booking. Remaining balance is due 60 days prior to arrival. A full refund less $300 is guaranteed if reservation is cancelled outside of 60 days.

About Susan Amsler

We are a family of four and we live in Atlanta. We purchased this lot in Rosemary Beach in 1998 so that our two boys would have a place to play in the sugar white sand. Said two boys are now grown but still love playing in the sand. We worked with an architect to design a house that would be both beautiful as well as practical. I am an interior designer and really enjoyed the process of decorating this home.

Susan Amsler purchased this house in 1998

Why Susan Amsler chose Beaches of South Walton

We had rented in Seaside, (too crowded), Sandestin,(too cheesy) and Sea Grove, (not enough going on). We purchased a lot so early, ( 1998), that we were able to buy directly on a boardwalk, very close to the gulf and the town center. We were in the right place at the right time , for once!

What makes this house unique

Taking naps on the swing bed, watching people stroll up and down the boardwalk, enjoying the gul view off the second story porch, getting ice cream at the very nearby sugar shak. We also employ a local concierge/maintenance service that can provide our guests with anything they might need or want. The benefits of dealing with an actual owner combined with an onsite 24 hour maintenance and housekeeping service. The best of both worlds!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just about the most perfect beach house we have ever stayed in. Layout is great, beds were incredibly comfortable and the location was so convenient to beach and town. We especially loved not having to share outdoor space with carriage house people. It is rare to find a house in Rosemary Beach without the carriage house. So much nicer and more private!!!

Loved this cottage & its location! We were a group of worn-out mommies that were able to completely refresh & recharge over our long weekend. Coming into a beautifully decorated cottage where everything was beautiful & clean & comfy was a gift. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. I love this house and I love Rosemary Beach and it makes me truly happy when my guests are happy! I tried to make the decor elegant but not fussy, cozy but not claustrophobic. I hope you and the other "mommies" will come back soon for another relaxing vacation.

Ideal Location and a Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week in Rosemary Beach! This is our third summer staying in Rosemary Beach (5th on 30A) and Amsler Cottage far exceeded our previous rental experiences. The house was beautiful, the layout was open/spacious and ideal for small or larger groups, but seriously -- the location truly sets this house apart from others. We were a super quick walk down a quaint walkway to the beach, a block from downtown, and a few blocks from our favorite RB pool. The only reason I would advise to avoid this house, is because I don't want it to be booked next season when our family plans our already-anticipated return! :) Thank you Susan and John for a wonderful stay in your home -- and for checking in on us during the week to ensure our stay was enjoyable!

Fantastic Rosemary Beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved Amsler Cottage. The location to the town, restaurant, pools, and beach could not be more perfect. The layout and furnishings of the house are extremely well done. The Amsler's are pros and have thought of everything. We'll 100% be booking again. Thanks Susan and Jon for sharing your home with us!

The property was beautiful. A gorgeous, warm, comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our cottage. Rosemary has great restaurants, but we usually cooked at the cottage. With the lovely kitchen, grill and patio, there was no need to wait somewhere for a table for 10. Ours was a college reunion and the house could not have been more perfect for a group of 10 women. From the time of our (late) arrival, when we walked onto a patio with the light string under the umbrella twinkling, and the sound of music playing inside the house, it felt like we were guests of an invisible, but very gracious hostess. We would all highly recommend Amsler Cottage.
