Great Family Gathering
We thoroughly enjoyed our family gathering at the McDonald home in Rosemary Beach. It had a wonderful open kitchen, fully equipped, and a large den for the family gathering. The dining table was great for at least 12 people. It is close to the beach and downtown restaurants/shops. The kids loved riding the bicycles around town. We highly recommend this home for a family vacation.
Great house! Our family has stayed in many houses at Rosemary over the last 10+ years. This is the best. Everything about the house is top notch-location, furnishings (most comfortable beds ever), kitchen, house layout for family gatherings, owner's professional nature etc. There is not a better house in Rosemary. This house is not cheap but it is worth every dollar and we will be back. Rent this one and you will not be sorry.
We just returned from a fantastic trip with four families at this house and it was amazing. The layout is very conducive to entertaining and group interaction, but there is also plenty of space to get away for some quiet alone time as well. Every bedroom is spacious and the kids' bunk bed room was almost as much fun as the beach! The house is located very centrally, steps away from the beach, two pools, and the shops and restaurants of Rosemary. We will definitely be coming back! Thanks for a great time.
Happy family from Memphis area!
18 (11 adults and 7 children) of us stayed in this beautiful home and carriage house! It was so roomy, and there were plenty of places to sit inside and several porches outside so it never felt crowded. The location was wonderful being across the street from the beach access, and the pool was only two blocks away. I would highly recommend this property, and hope that we can return there again!
Awesome House for Families and Kids or Big Groups
We stayed here in October 2011 for my kids fall break along with 4 other adults and a total 6 kids. The house was perfect. Very close to the beach. I have stayed in houses that face the East Green and this location is just as close. Awesome kids bunk room and bathroom. Very nicely furnished so that you feel like you are in your own home and tons of sitting space in the family room with lots of couches and comfortable chairs. All the bedrooms are spacious other than the small room close to the kitchen which we had a crib in. The screened porch that faces the beach has ocean views and is perfectly placed off the kitchen and family room. HUGE family room, kitchen, den, and dining room that essentially make up 1 big room. The other porch is huge and has good furniture including rocking chairs. Plenty of parking since it is on the corner. One of the best features is how close it is to the town. I would say it is less than a 5 minute walk from the downtown area. Will definitely rent again.
Comfy vacation spot for 2 big families
This house was ideal for our group. The photos do not accurately describe how wonderful this house is to spend a week in. It was clean and the kitchen was extremely well-equipped for cooking in, which we did most nights. The owner answered all of our questions re: beach chairs, internet access, towels, music player, etc. I would definitely recommend this house to friends and relatives. We would recommend crabby stoves as a hidden gem of a restaurant just a quick walk down the beach.
