Welcome to Pitot Cottage, one of the few Gulf Front options in Rosemary Beach. If you crave being on the Ocean but also love the amenities of a special community like Rosemary this is the home for you. Step onto the wrap-around balcony for breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. Watch the sunrise in the morning and the spectacular gulf sunsets in the evenings, from the comfort of this home away from home.

This picturesque beach home is designed after the historic 'James Pitot' House in New Orleans. The Pitot House is a historic landmark in Louisiana built in the 18th century on a Creole colonial plantation. Although they're designed the same on the exterior, the interior of the 3,000 square foot Pitot Cottage is the perfect vacation spot near the beach for relaxing. Sit back in the comfortable sofas and arm chairs of the living area, or take advantage of the professional chef's kitchen and spacious dining room. With high ceilings and exquisite décor of subtle Gulf colors, you won't forget how close you are to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Two of the three large bedrooms have king beds with private baths. The third bunk room holds four twins. The exterior boasts a wrap-around balcony on the second floor overlooking the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and a pillared verandah on the first. Pitot Cottage is beach front, near the Coquina Pool. There is also a carriage house above the garage that is rented separately from the main home. If renting both homes, you will receive a discounted rate on the carriage house.

Rosemary Beach creates the feeling of luxury both inside and outside of your vacation rental. Visitors can walk down the cobblestone streets to the Rosemary Beach Merchants & restaurants, or stick their feet in the sugar white sand of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Footpaths stretching 2.3 miles provide the perfect opportunity for an evening stroll and plush green fields play perfect host to a relaxing afternoon picnic with the family. Accented with amenities such as a spa, 4 refreshing pools and nearby sightseeing, Rosemary facilitates excitement for people of all ages. You will have access to all of the community pools, playgrounds and private beach walkovers. For an additional fee you can access eight clay tennis courts and the fitness center.

30A Cottages will arrange all your plans and concierge needs prior to and during your stay! Services include, but are not limited to: bike and beach chair rentals, airport transportation, grocery shopping, catered dinners or prepared meals, beach bonfires, kayak rentals, baby sitters, restaurant recommendations and reservations, and spa services.

The cottage was beautiful and location was fabulous. My family was indeed most comfortable in the home and would highly recommend to family and friends. I was most impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of the staff.

Breathtaking !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at Pitot Cottage with our son, daughter-in-law and our two grandsons. The architecture of the home combined with the beach view from the balcony made this one of my favorite spots to visit. We walked to dinner each night and the young boys loved the pool when not boogie-boarding on the waves. The sound system only added to a special time we will never forget.
