About the property

Funky carriage house within feet of the beach, sleeps 4 - next to Rosemary

Oliver’s Place Carriage House was one of original homes in Inlet Beach which has been remodeled into a funky beach cottage. It is located at Inlet Beach on the south side of the 30A adjacent 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 beach retreat has a laid-back and relaxed feel, situated just 120 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 off the master bedroom, while you have your morning coffee or sundowners.

All you need to bring for an unforgettable vacation is your food, clothes and beach towels. 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, kids entertainment and much more!

The first floor features the living area, tv, kitchen with dishwasher, double door refrigerator and breakfast counter. There is a sleeper sofa suitable for 2 kids. Upstairs is a king bed-room with full bath and washer and dryer. There is an outside seating area and charcoal barbeque and gas grill. There is on-site parking for 1 car.

All beds, bedding and linen are brand new. 2 easy-fold beach chairs are also available.

Carriage house is suitable for a couple or family with 2 children. Not suitable for the elderly or disabled person as the bathroom is upstairs, off the master bedroom. No pets allowed.

The main house sleeps 10 people and is also for rent and can be viewed at vrbo 593371

About Laura

The Norton and Schach families purchased the property from the estate of Oliver, who lived to be 94 years old. They decided to retain the original character of the house and carriage house and update it with new appliances, linen and decor. (pictured at sunset with property managers Laura & Anthony)

Laura purchased this cottage in 2014

Great, quiet location and adorble!

If you like Rosemary Beach but want to step back from the crowd the Oliver's Place Too is just for you! Larger that a Rosemary Beach Cottage with all of the same conveniences. The bed is very comfortable. The porch outside the bedroom was my favorite spot for an evening glass of wine. Kitchen is well outfitted and property management is very responsive. We loved it!

Lovely cottage close to beach and perfect for 2 people

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this carriage house. It was a very short walk to the beach, and the beach area was not crowded. The house was clean and comfortable. It was perfect for my husband and I. His only complaint is he had trouble with the stairs. They're not very deep, which is fine for me but not for his size 15 feet lol!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a simple place to rest and recharge after a very busy season at work. Olivers Too was perfect - Old Florida charm just a short stroll to the beach and to all the restaurants, stores and biking trails Rosemary Beach offers. We'll be back!

Perfect Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

Oliver's Place Too was perfect for my husband and I on our first couple vacation to the beach in about 30yrs. This rental was just the right size and in a perfect location to bike ride all over the quaint and laid back area known as Rosemary Beach. Beach access was ideal and the cottage was simple and nicely decorated in an understated way. Laura and her husband were so friendly and nice. We hope to return soon with more family and enjoy both Oliver's Place and Oliver's Place Too. I highly recommend it.

Cozy & convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Location is ideal! It's a straight shot to the Inlet Beach access which was beautiful, clean, and away from the crowds. The cut-through path just across the street to Rosemary Beach was great for cruising about our bikes.

Everything about the listing description and pictures were accurate. No major surprises. Overall the property, furniture, linens and decor was very clean and tidy. The remodel provides modern amenities while preserving the original, rustic beauty. Yes, the stairs are steep as they're original structure, but nothing insane for the able-bodied. Just take it slow :)

This carriage house was perfect for our family of four.

To our delight, there was a deck box full of beach toys shared with the main house next door, along with an outdoor shower to rinse off sand.

Laura was welcoming and so easy to work with. We will definitely recommend this property and hope to return soon!

Save your money!! Remodeled, really??? Come on. I've rented for years in this area and this place should not be rented, from the mildew crawling up the shower walls, to the stairs that you can kill yourself on going down, the ants and the shower that dripped at best. The owner said she tried to contact me during our stay to address some of the many issues, needless to say I carry my phone with me everywhere I go because of the business that I'm in!! Go find somewhere else or run for the border!!!

Owner's Response: “Oliver’s Place Carriage House was one of original homes in Inlet Beach which has been remodeled into a funky beach cottage.” This is the description on The structure and stairs are the original building, however all appliances, furniture, bedding and linen are new. Guests are personally checked in by the property manager, however this guest arrived much later than the normal check in time. An information book is provided detailing all information required by the guest, as well as a request to please report any problems you may have immediately. This guest only had ONE complaint while in house, which was received shortly after check in, requesting additional linen as he had under-stated the number of guests in his party. Despite this deviation in the rental agreement, we overlooked this issue and had additional linen and towels delivered within 20 minutes late on a Sunday night. Additional complaints were received 4 days after check-out, which have been dealt with timeously. There is a hot water on demand system that is in 100% working order. The “mildew” in the shower is in fact tile grouting, as the shower is bleached in between each guest. This place is a steal with nightly rates at a fraction of the neighbors in Rosemary and a stone’s throw to the beach.

Situated right next to Rosemary Beach on the East side of the 30A. A short 120 yard walk to the public beach access. Restaurants, cycling along the 17 mile scenic 30A and enjoying the pristine white beaches are favorite pastimes.
