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.

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.

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!

Laura McCloud purchased this house in 2013

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.

Great location.

  • 2 of 5

The property location was great, but the house has many maintenance issues. The people managing this property obviously dont have a clue.. Sadly, The bbq grill was so dirty we didnt use it. Kitchen sink and sprayer dripped and was broken. One kitchen drawer didnt close. Master suite bathroom toiltet roll holder was ripping away from the wall. Sheets in the pullout sofa were dirty. One bed downstairs matress was so flattened and was very uncomfortable as was the king bed upstairs. Contacted the owners and they sent the cleaning crew over immediately that dropped off a set of clean sheets. We were told the other issues would be taken care of after we left. Its a great location with access to the pool, but we will be renting elsewhere next year.

Great house, great location, but not well maintained...

  • 3 of 5

This house was in a great location!!!! Steps to the pool, which was mostly private - we only saw one other family the entire stay! The beach access was a very short walk on the paved path! The house was wonderful but was not well maintained. The walls and furniture had seen their better days. The air conditioner in the master didn't work well - the master was about 10 degrees warmer then the living room. The sheets were covered in dog hair. We brought our own sheets based on a previous review we had read which was much needed! Lastly, the floors were not clean. I know it's the beach and sand is everywhere, but you could tell they were barely touched before our arrival. Lastly, it would be amazing if the 3rd floor bedroom had a bathroom. There is not a hallway bathroom except for on the 1st floor so the 3rd floor bedroom had to share the master bathroom - which became hectic!

If the cleaning crew could be replaced, this house would be wonderful!

Awesome house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this beautiful home. Very convenient to the beach and pool. House was clean and well appointed. Owner was excellent to deal with. Close to 98 and 30A. Didn't have to deal with the awful traffic encountered in Destin. Would definitely recommend this property for family vacations.

You get what you pay for

  • 3 of 5

The house itself is nice and the location is great. However, we were unaware there was construction right next door. We were woken up every single morning with the sound of saws cutting through cinderblocks and hammering around 7am! The common spaces were nice (although the furniture has definitely seen better days!) but the layout of the bedrooms was odd. The sheets were mismatched, the comforters stained and the kitchen was rather sparsely stocked.

Compared to many other homes in the area, this was definitely on the less expensive end. Over all, our stay was nice and if you can overlook the shortcomings then I say go for it

Beautiful home, great location

  • 4 of 5

Great week in this home. Even prettier than the pictures. The area is booming and we didn't expect so much construction around us, so that was a bummer, but you can't beat the location. Slept 5 adults and 5 young children comfortably. We would definitely rent again!
