About Ronna and Chris Davis

Hi! My name is Ronna Davis. My husband and I and our 2 sons live in the main house next to this gorgeous carriage house. We are full time residents of Rosemary Beach and will be available during your vacation to make sure you have everything you need.

Ronna and Chris Davis purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Ronna and Chris Davis chose Florida

Rosemary Beach is one of the most renowned and magical vacation spots in the world.

What makes this cottage unique

Because we live here full time we take the extra time to wash duvet covers, blankets and pillow shams in between each visitor. Our house is immaculate. It is also stocked with lots of extras such as beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and toys, coolers, full size shampoo and conditioner, an air purifier / white noise machine in the bedroom and even a auto shade for your your car's dashboard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ronna! Just wanted to send a note to thank you and Chris for your hospitality and for sharing your incredible carriage house with us. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed ourselves. BOTH kids said it was their "best spring break ever" (which actually makes me feel a little bad because our oldest daughter is in college and wasn't with us!!!), but I agree it was AMAZING. We love Rosemary and we just love your home. We have already decided we want to book for next year's spring break!



I have never used VRBO before and was a little leary not going through a big company. I was certainly wrong. All of the "extras" you provided (the endless towels, the coffee, soaps, etc) were so very appreciated.



Thank you again! We will be back!

Great location! Fun and clean home! Owners easy to work with.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. I started the day watching the sunrise on the top floor deck and we ended it the same way. The owners have everything needed for fun at the beach, and the location was perfect to enjoy the restaurants at Rosemary or Seacrest without getting in the car. We also appreciated the cleanliness of the house.

Treehouse Hype

  • 2 of 5

My wife and I booked the treehouse for a 4 day getaway. We always wanted to stay in Rosemary Beach and decided to splurge this visit. The owners were very good at communicating and actually had it ready before our scheduled time of arrival. It is easy to find and parking was provided next to the house. Entering the property through a private gate was quickly greeted by a pile of dilapidated aluminum beach chairs, old Barbie doll, weeds, some rotten wood and very loud fan that runs constantly. Do not plan on grilling outside or spending anytime outside relaxing due to this turbine cooling the a/c units. Very poor design and not well thought out for a multi-million dollar property. That really sums up our feelings on this trip. Overrated and not worth the price. I don't mind paying for a nice place to stay but if I pay for a nice place it needs to be nice. This is well used rental that is showing its age.

It wasn't functional for us and we planned on spending time in the crows nest but was let down due to its limited space, sparse furnishing and minimal view. That beach view is a stretch.

Our goal was to cook at the place but quickly found the grill to be rusted and poorly maintained. Primo makes a great grill but if neglected it isn't worth using. Note: Charcoal briquettes and lighter fluid are not used on a komado grill.

The outdoor seating is pathetic. The wicker love seat on the front porch is ripped and stained and was scared to sit in it.

By far the best part, above and beyond, was the soaps the owner provided, if that tells you anything. The shampoo, shower gel and hand soaps all were excellent. Very nice touch but not worth hundreds /per night.

We made the best of it, be sure to go to the Pearl and get a smoked old fashioned (Amazing). If you do stay there, keep your expectations low and maybe you will be pleasantly surprised. I will do it differently on our next visit.

Owner's Response: As the property owner, I am sad that you were disappointed. I have just issed you a $500 refund so that the amount you now paid to stay there should be equal to the value you got from staying in a centally located home in wonderful Rosemary Beach. You did come the last 3 days of the busy back to back Summer bookings. We have had rain almost every day this Summer and it is true there are some weeds in the planter boxes in the courtyard and that could explain any rotted wood issues on the decking. All of our guests are thrilled that we have several beach chairs, a beach cart, a couple of coolers, sand and beach toys and an umbrella stored in the courtyard for their use; I am sorry they weren't organized neatly when you arrived. It seems I should have held off on letting you check-in early and made you wait until I got to the property to inspect the outside area. Also, the loveseat was torn up by guests this Summer and has already been removed and will be replaced. Lastly, the exhaust fan has settings and could have easily been adjusted so it didn't run if you would have let me know it was bothering you. This is a wonderful rental home loved by many families who come back year after year. You were just a couple with no kids so maybe that is why you didn't see the magic; the Pearl Hotel would have been a better fit for you I agree.

Outstanding Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the treehouse was exceptional. It started with us arriving to town a bit early. No problem, Ronna quickly made the unit available to us. The townhouse was clean, well furnished and very spacious. You can see the beach from the porch yet it's on a quiet road where there was very little traffic. I would highly recommend to any family with older kids. The spiral staircase would be tough for young ones to negotiate or anyone with knee trouble. This is a unique and well managed beach house that you will love.
