Ahava Cottage is truly one of the premier rental properties in beautiful Rosemary Beach. Both Ahava and our other home, the adjacent Sababa Carriage House (see VRBO listing #195247) are located on the desirable Gulf side, are just a 2 minute walk to the beach and even closer to the fabulous Coquina Pool. All of Rosemary's most popular amenities -- beach, community pools, shopping, restaurants, fitness center, tennis, playground, bicycle rental -- are within a 5 minute walk of Ahava yet privacy and seclusion are yours as you sit on one of the outdoor porches and listen to the sounds of the sea.
Professionally and exquisitely decorated, Ahava has a chic and contemporary feel. It features an open living room with high ceilings, an upgraded kitchen with top of the line stainless steel appliances, wine cooler, and an amazing antique French Oak dining table. One of two master bedrooms is located on the first floor. The second floor features another master bedroom, an additional bedroom with 2 twin beds, and a bunk room with built-ins. A family room/sitting area (complete with sleeper sofa) and an office are also found on the second floor. A spiral staircase with custom railing leads to the third floor loft area that has partial Gulf.
Other features include granite countertops and Travertine flooring on the first floor, natural pecan hardwood flooring on the second and third floors, custom Roman shades, maple woodwork and built-ins throughout, oversized showers with Rainheads, and custom maple platform king-size beds in both master suites. TVs are in every bedroom and there is a flat-panel 42" TV in the main floor living room. There is a grill, outdoor shower, and ample outdoor furniture for you to lounge in, including a hammock next to the fountain.
While at Rosemary Beach do as little or as much as you like. You can spend the entire day on the beach or take advantage of the many activities available to you -- bicycle riding, parasailing, golfing, shopping, and tennis just to name a few. Rosemary has four community pools, one of which is heated and fully enclosed and another -- the Coquina Pool -- is heated when needed. Pamper yourself at the Solace Day Spa, take a class at the fitness center, do some shopping, eat in one of the many nearby restaurants, and rent a bicycle for the day. Whatever you do, you can't help but be taken in by some of the most beautiful, white sandy beaches you'll find anywhere in the world and by the elegant, serene, "upscale Mayberry" surroundings of Rosemary Beach.
