Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our 4th stay and we love it just as much as we did the first time.

This house has everything you could want. It feels like a second home to us. This area on 30A is amazing. Great community, beautiful pool and beach. Great amenities like the trolley. Responsive management service. Well equipped home. They've thought of everything.

Proximity to great shopping and dining. Family friendly area. Airport is close.

We will continue to make this our home away from home.

Best Thanksgiving Week Ever

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Warmth of the Sun over the Thanksgiving week. The weather was perfect and we were able to enjoy all of the spacious outdoor space. The grills on the back patio are fantastic and the kitchen is well stocked. It's a beautiful home and well furnished. Family who stayed in the 3rd floor bedroom said that the room got very hot at night so I wonder if it becomes very uncomfortable in the Summer. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it. 30A Cottages was very responsive to all of our requests.

Feeling the Warmth of the Sun even on cloudy days!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this house and our experience with 30A Cottages and Concierge. Their service was amazing as usual with an easy time booking, help with renting bicycles, you name it! The weather was dreary during our stay but this wonderful house made it a great vacation! We did get to go to the beautiful pool one day with help of the shuttle that showed in minutes! The rest of the time we biked a bit to enjoy the Mexican restaurant nearby and the ice cream shop in Rosemary Beach. We took the short drive down to the Hub to watch a football game and spent time in the house enjoying it's amenities. There were 8 of us and room still for another family! The TV room off of the enormous master was perfect for the kids and the layout with 3 staggered balconies was unbelievable! I'd love to rent this house again so we can use the grills and hot tub as well! You can't go wrong with this one!

The Sojourn of the Secret Sisters of the Seaside LOVED this house.

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing for our girls weekend. It has everything you could want. Plenty of bedrooms/bathrooms even for a large group and ideal for 'girls weekend'. We road bikes EVERYWHERE because the area is designed for biking. The beach is pristine and gorgeous. Seacrest is adorable with it's Tommy Bahama 'feel'. and the pool area is like none other. Rosemary Beach was a stone's throw on a bike and has amazing restaurants and shops. George's at Alys Beach, again an easy bike ride was so good we ate there 3 times. So many options for all kinds of vacations... You will fall in love with this area and the house is amply named 'The Warmth of the Sun' because it truly is a warm and inviting place...

Highly Recommend

  • 4 of 5

The home is very comfortable and had a floor plan that was well suited for our family members (ie. older teen, younger kids and in-laws). The kitchen was very well equiped with everything we needed to prepare food and dine in. Would have preferred to have a TV in each bedroom - especially the two masters. Very clean and well maintained.
