Oliver's Beach House - Inlet Beach, steps from the beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 10

Oliver’s Place is located at Inlet Beach on the south side of the 30A next to Rosemary Beach, away from the crowds in a quiet street, yet still centrally located within walking distance to some of Rosemary Beach’s great restaurants. This “Old Florida” beach cottage has a peaceful, laid-back and relaxed feel, situated just 100 yards from the pristine breathtakingly beautiful white sand beaches of South Walton. Wake up to the sound of the sea and watch the dolphins playing in between the sand bars from your large deck, while you have your morning coffee or sundowners.

All you need to bring for an unforgettable vacation is your food and clothes. Supermarkets are a 5 minute drive over the Lake Powell Bridge in Panama City Beach. For those guests requiring some retail therapy, Pier Park is a 15 minute drive away. For the active vacationers, the scenic 30A has a 17 mile long bike and jogging trail. Cycling is the perfect way to get around and explore the 30A and its little towns, lakes and beautiful coastal dunes. Several world class golf courses are just minutes away.

Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach have seasonal events throughout the year, from outdoor concerts, farmers markets, movies and much more!

The first floor features the living area, dining room, kitchen, laundry, king bed-room and full bath. There is an outside seating area and charcoal barbeque. There is on-site parking for 3 cars.

The second level features two large bedrooms, with a shared bathroom. One has 2 king beds, the other a king bed and a set of bunk beds. This level leads out to the large private deck overlooking the stunning Gulf of Mexico.

All beds, bedding and linen are brand new. Each of the 3 bedrooms have a flat screen television, as well as the living room, which also has a DVD player.

During season we do weekly reservations Sunday to Sunday. The advantage of this turnaround on a Sunday versus Saturday is that guests have less traffic on Sundays getting here and departing. The grocery stores are quieter on Sundays and one also has the advantage of a much quieter beach on Saturdays.

About Laura

After years of vacationing on the 30A, the Nortons & Schachs decided this was the perfect place to have their vacation home. They have recently purchased the property and are proud to be able to share it with you.

Laura purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Laura chose Florida

We named our piece of paradise in memory of Oliver, who sadly passed away last year. He was well known to everyone in the area, as he had lived here since the 80's. His gardening skills were admired by all and he would toss lemons from his trees to kids passing by. He lived in his little carriage house adjacent to the main home where we would always see him chatting to people from his rocking chair. We are so grateful to be able to enjoy these luxuries of waking up to the sound of the waves and sitting on our rocking chairs sipping our morning coffee. Nothing beats sundowners on our large patio overlooking the stunning crystal waters of the Gulf. Our cottage is managed by a local resident Laura, who serves as your private concierge.

What makes this cottage unique

No need to get in your car after you check-in, as everything is here. Walk to the beach without the hassle of getting into a hot car and searching for parking.

During high season we do weekly rentals Sunday to Sunday for your benefit. The traffic getting here is much quieter and there are no lines in the grocery stores. Saturdays you have the beach to yourselves.

Great location but house has its issues

  • 2 of 5

Absolutely love the area of Rosemary Beach will definitely go back. However the house we stayed in had some issues. We could not use the upper deck because it had rained & the deck held water, the boards were buckled & rotten it was unsafe to hangout up there. The water constantly dripped from the upper deck to the lower deck it kept the lower deck & all of our outside belongings saturated. The window by the couch had rain pouring in during the rainfall as well. We contacted The manager of the property and never got a response on these issues. We had roaches in the kitchen and she did have an exterminator come out the next day which we were grateful for. There was just a lot of little issues, & bothered me that we never got a response about them. For the amount of money that you have to spend to stay in a small house for a week it should be kept up even if it is an older house.

Great Location! Close to the Beach!

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect for guests of a destination wedding on Inlet Beach. It was a little smaller than I expected but the front porch was a great space for relaxing in the evening. The stairway was apparently added during a renovation and was a little odd. You had to be quite careful when coming down the stairs. Laura was easy to contact if we had questions and we enjoyed working with her. It was great to have several off street parking for vehicles. Definitely a good value for the area!

We rented this cottage for a "girls'" getaway. It had everything we needed. The location can't be beat. You can easily walk to the beach and the shops & restaurants in Rosemary. Laura was great, let us check-in early. The beach was not too crowded, unlike the beaches South of us. I would highly recommend.

Oliivers Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location and the house worked out great. Very short walk to beautiful beach and all the amenities of Rosemary and Seacrest Beach. Local restaurants were casual and good. Laura the property manager was welcoming and good to answer questions. Everything was just a short bike ride away.

Lovely beach cottage in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Great value! Great location! Quaint and charming! The manager was responsive and kind. The beds were comfortable with quality linens and the towels in the bathrooms were nice and thick. There was a great view of the gulf from both the front porch and the 2nd level porch. The little town center of Rosemary Beach is just a quick 5-10 minute walk. Easy access to bike rental shops, lovely restaurants, shopping, etc. We would stay here again in an instant.
