Awesome little place
We had a great time in this carriage house! Stayed with our 2.5yr old and 4 month old and we had plenty of room. The house is spacious, fantastically and cleverly designed, well decorated, and had pretty much everything we needed. The bed upstairs is comfortable and the bunkbeds are also super comfortable. I will say that I agree with other reviewers in that the kitchen utensil selection felt like the red headed step child of amenities. The pots and pans are super old and cheap and remind me of my college days. There wasn't even a spatula. We only cooked 2 nights and the meals were very simple so made due just fine. But if you are a chef, just be aware that you either need to be creative and lower your expectations OR just bring your own stuff. It had plenty of plates, bowls, wine glasses, and coffee cups. There was also a salad bowl. No measuring cups, spatulas, or extras, just the bare minimum.
Also, per Jared (who was very prompt by the way), we get both garages and can parallel park in front of them. The entry gate is shared with the back pool area of the main house and we definitely had a couple of run ins with the main house people, but it was totally fine and cordial and non-awkward. Especially with the lovely foliage on the stairs and balcony, there is definitely a defined separation between the main house and carriage house, with the exception of the excursion across the pool area to the garage. Also, theres no garage door opener. You literally have to go around through the pool area and into the garage in order to open it. As a result, we didn't park in the garage, but instead paralleled right in front of it.
Overall, this is a great house and would definitely stay there again! Would totally recommend to others as well. I was so impressed with the clever layout and overall design of this place! Lovely vacation spot!
Thank you for your review. Apparently someone else really liked the kitchen utensils and decided to take them. I'll check on those. There is a remote key pad at the street side garage door that you may use to open/close the garage door.
We are a family of 4 and our overall experience at this property was great! The condo was clean and comfortable. Our kids loved the bunkbed.
Great location, close to the beach and easy access to everything in town.
Property manager was great to work with and very prompt with replies to requests.
The kitchen was not what we expected, it was too small. Some basics were missing and the pans, pots, dinnerware were old and scratched. We consider that the appliances were way too old and need a replacement.
Besides that we would come back if they improve the kitchen.
We love Rosemary Beach!
Thank you for your review. I'll be checking on the kitchen utensils. I'll pass along your other comments to the homeowner. Unfortunately in a carriage house some rooms have to be small.
Great house, great location, wonderful beach town!
The house was perfectly located for easy access to everything! It was clean and comfortable. Wish there were interior stairs from the garage to the house. But otherwise this was a great experience!
Our overall stay was good. The room is spacious and well laid out.. The only issue we had is that the roof leaked when it rained and we had to put a pot down to catch the water. Judging by the ceiling it looks like the roof needs repair. You can see several wet spots in the ceiling ..Other than this we enjoyed the room & would rent it again.
Thank you for your review. I'll check on the issues you mentioned.
Best use of 700 square feet!
After staying in a different carriage house last year, we decided on Bontemps based on the layout and use of space. We were thrilled with how they used each and every inch. A full-size bedroom with a king bed made the difference. The house was clean, had fresh, new linens, and was furnished well in regards to furniture.
There were two items that were a little frustrating. Firstly, the kitchen was not as well appointed as previous homes. Some basics were missing, leaving us to run to the store late on the night we arrived. The house was missing a can opener, baking sheet, measuring cups and a few other items that I deem to be standard. The pots and pans are in need of replacement as they are old, scratched and warped.
My second frustration point was the TV in the family room. The TV is nice, but the cable box is so old that it doesn't have an HDMI port. Watching TV in standard definition is annoying (#firstworldproblems). We headed up to Shades to watch sports as the picture was just too bad at the house.
Side Note: There was no wagon to use to transport your items to the beach, so maybe bring a portable one.
At the end of the day, we would rent this house again. Jared, the property manager, was always quick to answer questions and provide help when needed. It is perfect for two people and located in a great area. Just know that if the main house is booked (which it was when we were there), you'll encounter those renters frequently at the private pool because you have to walk through the pool to get to the garage.
Great stay, and one we'll do again.
Thank you for your review. It is possible to access the house without walking by the pool. You may walk along the brick path on the left side of the garage, use the gate from the path entrance and access the stairs. Hope you will choose to stay with us again.
