The 2200+ square foot Carobella Cottage, is a leisurely stroll down the boardwalk to the beach from your front door. The professionally designed home is situated in the heart of Rosemary, and a perfect location for the best in family vacation living. Return from the day at the beach and relax in a zen like courtyard with lush gardens, listen to water cascading in a PRIVATE POOL with an outdoor fireplace and terrace, or enjoy town views from the upstair decks with a WET BAR/MORNING KITCHEN. The first tower offers dining seating while the second tower offers a place for an afternoon nap or reading. In the winter, the pool can be heated to serve as a hot tub with bench seating.
After vacationing in Rosemary for over 7 years with our young daughters, we decided to purchase this lovely home. Rosemary has always been a special place for our family and so we decided to rename the home Carobella Cottage after our two daughters. This home was designed by known Rosemary Beach architect George Israel, who has done many fine homes in the area. The interiors were professionally designed by John Fernandez in a unique 'Organic-Modern' style.
The first floor offers a fabulous view from the living room to the pool terrace through a wall of glass. A large flat screen tv is also in the room to add to the enjoyment. The kitchen and dining areas are equipped for anyone who loves to cook or enjoys family gatherings and ordering in from one of the many restaurants steps away. Restaurants include Summer Kitchen, Cowgirl Kitchen, Wild Olives, Onano, Shades, and Paradis for fine dining and excellent wines. Want to walk and get coffee? One block away is the coffee house and the Spa Solace for more relaxation is even closer.
The first floor also includes a master bedroom with a flat screen tv, walk in closet, spacious bathroom with double shower head shower, and the added bonus of a private outdoor shower. Be sure to sleep well with the sounds of the waterfall cascading into the pool just outside the window.
The second floor boosts two additional bedrooms. A master bedroom with private full bath and closet. A second bedroom with two twin beds that can double as kids' entertainment room with its flat screen tv and its own bathroom. In the hallway there is an additional set of bunk beds for added sleeping arrangements. Both bedrooms access the balcony on the front of the home with views of Rosemary. The washer and dryer are also conveniently located on the 2nd floor. Additionally, walk past the wetbar/morning kitchen with a small subzero refrigerator and enjoy the outdoor dining deck in the first tower or go up to the lounging tower complete with comfortable sofas.
Our home offers a very relaxing vacation for couples with or without children.
The home is centrally located within walking distance to the beach, the 4 Rosemary Beach pools, fitness center, tennis center, restaurants, spa, shops, bike shop, Sugar Shack, playgrounds and green spaces. A short drive away is Publix, Target, movie theaters and more shopping at Pier Park.
Need more space? Can rent in conjunction with carobella carriage house (vrbo 436977) for groups up to 12 people.

Wonderful stay in Rosemary!
Beautiful, modern home with amazing 3 levels with decks. Beautiful courtyard and refreshing dipping pool. Location so close to everything walkable in Rosemary. Loved the house!
The only two issues we had were the noise and parking problems due to the construction a street away that started at 7 am. Also, as a vacation property owner myself, I would replace the charcoal grill with a gas grill immediately. Charcoal is not only dirty around a pool area but an inconvenience and we didn't grill as often as we would have liked.
Would definitely stay again once construction is completed down the street.
Great location but very modern
Great property in a great location
But if you plan to relax in the living room and watch a football game think again .
Very modern furniture through out the house. Enjoyed the patio with hot tub but beware fire place does not work
Also if you like to grill and entertain expect a $100 charcoal Weber grill to work with
Property manager is very responsive and nice .
Amazing property & great location!
This is our third trip to Rosemary Beach, but our first time staying in a larger house. It was perfect to split between two families. We brought our 4-year-old and she navigated the property, as well as the stairs, wonderfully. She especially loved the private pool and was really excited about the bunk beds. It was great to have two rooms with two king size beds. The bathroom attached to the downstairs master was incredible. The beds and bedding were the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on - my only regret is not writing down the linen and pillow brands so I can buy some for back home! The house was extremely clean, comfortable, open, yet cozy. There were so many outdoor hang-out options that we didn't even get to fully utilize them all. However, we especially loved eating dinner on the second floor porch, and the tower was one-of-a-kind. The location is right around the corner from the town square, so everything you need is just right there. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking utensils, so we were able to cook dinner easily. We also really appreciated being able to play music throughout the house with the Apple device. Special thanks to Lillian, the owner, who was extremely responsive any time we had a question. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us! Hope to be back someday soon.
Family summer vacation
This was a wonderful home for our family! College and high school kids enjoyed it thoroughly! The tennis courts were wonderful for my boys who play daily in Texas. They were a short walk from the house. The walk to the beach was a straight shot from the front door! We loved the farmer's market on Sunday morning. This was a wonderful memory for us that we hope to repeat next summer
We stayed here during gal break with our two teenagers, who both had friends and my college junior son. Incredible property, great access to everything. Staying in Rosemary Beach, everything is accessible by foot or bike. Highly recommend this property.
Awesome Designer House!!!!
Lillian- Your home in Rosemary was just perfect for a long weekend! We loved the design and architecture and the location was just perfect! What a gift to have a rental property as beautifully designed and as comfortable as yours to spend a weekend in! We enjoyed every single space!
We are all in the hotel business and so we have a keen eye for things and we thrive on feedback from our hotel guests so I wanted to let you know the following:
1- Your front door lock will need to be replaced soon- the actual key area works it's the lever you push down that is broken- we ended up coming and going through master shower door alot.
2- Your hot tub did not work with bubbles or heat- Scott said a repairman was coming Friday but he never showed up.
3- On 2nd floor the wall across from laundry room- it looks as if an art piece was there once as their is a nail, but no art? Just wanted you to know in case it went missing with a former renter?
4- My friend Bob suggested an instruction book on how to operate the main tv, cable and house sound system for future guests.
I just love your home, I hope you and your family get to enjoy it often as it is a real treat!
Four pools, bike trails, fitness center, tennis center, fine wine and dining. Planned events as art markets, children festivals, and movies on the square all within blocks.
