About the property

5 Bedroom 3 Bath Updated Beauty One Street From Beach Access! Hotel Style Pool!

Do not wait to book this beautiful house that gives you views of the water from the second and third floors. This house has all enjoyment of being next door to Rosemary Beach and the quiet calm of inlet beach but without paying Rosemary Beach's prices! There is access to the beach across the street as well as another access across from the pool. We purchased this house and upgraded it back to it's original pristine shape! We also added parking in the front and a patio in the back. We live in this house in the low season so you will have all the amenities of a real home not just a rental. It is decorated in coastal beach style and several families could stay here at once. Our favorite part is strolling into downtown Rosemary for a meal and catching the Farmers market on Sunday. There are 4 outdoor decks to take in all of the sights. The hotel style pool out your back door has lots of great lounge chairs and the kids can easily be seen through the deck. There is also an outdoor shower connected to the house. The upper floor houses a queen bed with it's own balcony and wet bar. This balcony has stellar views in all directions. The second floor master suite has a huge tub and a large walk-in shower. The main floor has twin bunks built into the wall as well as 3 other bedrooms. One of the bedrooms doubles as a family room and the pull out couch will sleep 2 more. Dining is a pleasure because there are dining tables set out in the backdoor patio, second floor deck as well as a kitchen/dining that seats 11. All of the dining tables together seat 21.

–a Unique Setting for Your Special Holiday!

Rosemary Beach is a planned Village on the Gulf coast of northwest Florida, between Panama City and Destin, at the eastern end of Scenic Route 30A. It’s easily accessible by air or by car, only a 25-minute drive from the newly opened Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport.

Rosemary Beach Area Map

The town’s design is based on the principles of New Urbanism. The 107-acre Gulf-front town emphasizes community, neighborhood and convenience – in short, liveability. You don’t need to use your car to enjoy every aspect of the Village. Kids riding bikes, families walking their dog, and relaxed socializing among old and new friends are ever-present Village sights. To learn more about architecture and town planning in Rosemary Beach, see the excellent article by Simmons B. Buntin.

Visitors to Rosemary Beach enjoy mild year-round temperatures; world-class uncrowded beaches; Old Florida’s natural coastal beauty; iconic award-winning architecture and town planning; a quaint European-style town center; amenities such as tennis courts, fitness center, and green areas; and a center-stage location on Florida’sScenic Route 30A.

Touches of civilization that temper daily life at Rosemary Beachinclude both fine and casual dining; coffee shops and wine bars; a bookstore; fashion, décor and boutique shopping; a day spa; Camp Rosemary for kids; architecture, medical and other professional offices; art galleries and more.

Enjoy seasonal events such as the 30-A Songwriter’s Festival in January; the Rosemary Beach Tennis Open in May; Children’s Theater performances running June through August; the Fall Writer’s Conference in September; the Delmauro 5K in October; and special Holiday events.

Relaxing view of the Gulf

Abaco Rose is proud to be a close neighbor to the Village of Rosemary Beach. We shop and dine and relax and enjoy the special lifestyle of this unique place on Florida’s beautiful Emerald Coast.

About Laura McCloud

We first bought in Carillon Beach and rode our bikes to the area frequently. When the house came on the market and we looked out the top level deck over the gulf and we had to have it! Our hope is that you will enjoy our piece of heaven as much as we do!

Why Laura McCloud chose Beaches of South Walton

Abaco Rose offers a Rosemary Beach vacation rental experience, at an Inlet Beach price! This well-kept luxury home (built 2005) is comparable to rental properties within the Village of Rosemary Beach, but at a much lower price!

What makes this house unique

Uncrowded, pristine white sand beaches, with clear, emerald blue-green water – our beaches are definitely world-class!

It’s a 15-minute walk from Abaco Rose to Camp Helen State Park natural area, where Lake Powell, Florida’s largest coastal dune lake flows into the Gulf.

Picture yourself here -- at uncrowded Inlet Beach, just 50 yards from the doorstep of your Abaco RoseBeach Vacation Home!

Comfortable beach chairs and large umbrellas are for rent at Rosemary Beach - just next door. Abaco Rose guests – even those who are not beach fanatics – return home raving about our beaches!

Beaches of the Emerald Coast

Visitors have been traveling to the Emerald Coast for its bright white sand and emerald green waters for hundreds of years. With more than 65 miles of beachfront, there are plenty of activities to enjoy like sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, shelling, dolphin-spotting, boating, parasailing, jet skiing, fishing and so much more.

The Emerald Coast’s legendary pure white sand resulted from quartz crystals washing down from the Appalachian Mountains centuries ago. Along their journey, the crystals were bleached, ground, smoothed and polished until the surf of the Gulf of Mexico deposited these millions of grains of sand on the shoreline.

During the day the beach is abuzz with activities on the sand, on the surf and under the sea. Volleyball and Frisbee games take place on the beach with bodysurfing, swimming, boating, kayaking, sailing and windsurfing on the water while scuba divers and snorkelers spy playful bottle-nosed dolphins, sea turtles and manta rays underwater.

Come late afternoon, our guests gather to marvel at breathtaking Gulf Coast sunsets. The sight of a fiery sun dipping into the shimmering emerald water marks the perfect end to a perfect day at the beach.

Award-winning beaches, year after year!

The Emerald Coast offers better beaches than Brazil, Hawaii or Mexico, according to a new magazine poll.

Truly a fantastic vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at many vacation rentals in the past, and this is the BEST one by far. The owners were very easy to communicate with prior to the trip. The rules/procedures were posted on the refrigerator, so there was never any question about how to handle things. We had NO problems at all while we were there.

The location of the property was excellent for a family vacationing with children. We were steps from the shared pool. You can see your kids swimming in the pool from both of the rear-facing balconies. We were a very, very short walk from the beach access. Honestly, it doesn't get any better than this. The town of Rosemary Beach was around the corner - a nice stroll or quick bike ride.

The house itself was very spacious and even though we had nine people, we could all easily spread out. There are five bedrooms and one hallway bunk bed area (we told my son he was sleeping under the stairs like Harry Potter and he got a kick out of that). There are three full bathrooms and one half-bath off the kitchen. The bedroom in the tower did not have its own bathroom, so we stuck our teenagers up there and they happily (ha!) made the trek to the middle floor or the ground floor.

CLEAN and tidy! Immediately when I walked in I was impressed with the cleanliness and tidiness of this rental. I know how easy it is to track sand inside - and when we arrived there was NO sand, dirt, or dust anywhere. If you have allergies, you'll appreciate all of that! It was very tastefully decorated and they owners supplied nice, plump bath towels and crisp white sheets on all the beds. It was great!

The only criticism I have is that the collection of pots and pans were obviously someone's cast offs. I think that if they want to improve anything, a set of new pots, pans, dishes, and silverware would be appreciated. Also, since I always have to work on vacation, a small desk and chair in a bedroom would have been great. But neither of those things are deal breakers. We were there to enjoy the view, the beach and the town, and we were easily able to do that.

I highly recommend this rental - and we'll definitely be back!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Great well-maintained vacation home. With a group of 12, six adults and six kids, it worked fine. We all loved the pool and the beautiful beach just a very short walk away. We liked being next to Rosemary Beach for walking, shopping, eating out, etc. The second floor dining-family room area accommodated all of us easily, and there is a very nice large porch off that area for even more space. We hope to return next year so we can watch the 4th of July fireworks again from the beach and/or the top floor (great views).

Cant beat it

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was a great stay. House is great. perfect location for easy pool play and short stroll to the beach. The description of bedrooms is a bit misleading i.e. bunks in hallway and tower bedroom, both of which can not be closed off from the common noise throughout the house. Laura was very responsive to all of my questions or issues. Thats always a big plus.

  • 5 of 5

I could never thank Laura enough for sharing her rental home with my family! We made so many wonderful memories which will last a lifetime. The accomadations and location of the house were perfect. The beach, the views, the village, and bicycling were daily activities enjoyed by all of us! We didn't encounter any problems during our stay, just nonstop fun! We will definitely be back next year!

Awesome Spring Break week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week during our spring break. We had 3 adults and 3 kids. This house was perfect for us. The location could not have been more convenient. There is a stone path just outside the back of the house that leads you to the sidewalk along the road and just a few short steps to the entry point to the beach. This very short distance would be fine for families with kids of any age - even after a long day at the beach. No waiting on golf carts to pick you up! The entry to Rosemary Beach is literally just a few steps from this house. We road bikes and walked into Rosemary every single day, eating at Summer Kitchen, The Pearl and of course Sugar Shack. We felt safe letting our 12 year old ride into Rosemary with her friends as well - this was a first for us and she did fine. My 15 year old boys loved the location as well. This was just a really great trip for our family. I will add that I was a little confused about the description of the bedrooms on the lower level from the reviews - now that I've seen it I get it - 2 bedrooms connect to one another (there is a door to close them off from each other though). One of the bedrooms has a couch and what I think is a queen sized bed. This bedroom also has the door that opens up to the back yard - you must walk through here to get to the stone path leading to the beach and to the pool. It was not a problem for us because the teenagers stayed in this room and in the connecting room, and if we wanted to go out early, we just went out the front - really not a problem at all. The rest of the house was great too - really lovely. I would definitely rent this house again and recommend it. Why pay the prices to be in Rosemary when you can be in a beautiful home in a more secluded location, but just a short stroll away from Rosemary?

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the month of March to escape the Canadian winter and were simply blown away by the location and the house. The house is very well appointed with plenty of space and amenities we required. The location was stunning, steps to the beach and steps to Rosemary Beach which is a stunning community! Also it was within easy driving distance of groceries, drugstores and a Mall for all of our needs. Laura and Tom were great, always very attentive in responding to our questions. I would without hesitation recommend this property to anyone and everyone!
