The living area provides not only the ocean view, but also the view of the pool. The kitchen is fit for a professional cook and extremely well equipped, a perfect place to make toast or a 5-course gourmet dinner. The adjoining dining area is large and spacious and includes table and chairs for 6 as well as a bar dining for four. The living room includes lots of comfortable seating and a gas fireplace for the entire crowd to gather. The new 65" HD-4k flat screen TV with Sharp surround sound system, HD cable and a Blue Ray DVD player (along with complementary video collection & WiFi connections) provides the perfect setting to enjoy sports or to have a movie night for the family. The sound system is Bluetooth compatible so you can play your favorite tunes from your phone. There is even a full collection of board games and books in the armoire. We have taken care to anticipate the needs of our guests.

The balcony is the perfect extension of the living area and is fully furnished and allows for Gulf-view dining or lounging with the sound of the waves providing the background music. There is NO bad view in the unit!

The master bedroom is a true sanctuary. With a king sized Tempurpedic Cloud bed, luxury linens, iHome stereo (iPhone 6 compatible), a 55” HD flat screen smart TV, private sitting area, his and her vanities and dressers. The adjoining bathroom is a total Spa featuring a jetted bathtub for two, large walk-in shower with rain shower head, separate dressing room and generous closet, what more could anyone ask for! The sitting area is perfect for reading your favorite book or having you morning coffee in the bay window. There is really nothing like waking up to the view of your own palm tree.

The other two bedrooms (each with their own bath) are comfortably appointed one with a king bed and the other with an XL twin (NOTE: 125 lb weight limit) over a Queen bunk bed and both have 37" TV’s with WiFi connected BlueRay DVD's. All bedrooms have memory foam/gel mattress and custom-made linens that were designed specifically with the guest in mind.

Overall 2,100 square feet give our guests and their families plenty of room to get together and lots of nooks and crannies in which to enjoy some alone time.

Whether you want to spend time in the sun by the ocean front heated pool, lounge on the beach, swim in the surf, walk to Rosemary Beach for shopping, “doing” lunch, or just relax inside in the cool, comfort, and quiet - you have it all in this outstanding villa-Cousins' Cabana (Unit C-201)!

Please note that the rental does include linens for the condo but does not provide any beach towels. Beach chair rentals are available for an extra charge from the SeaOats Beach Services who maintains a kiosk on the beach. We also try to keep the condo equipt with several beach chairs for complementary use of our guests.

About Beth Tannenbaum & Jeff Cohen

Carl & Beth (from Nashville, TN) and Jeff & Debbie (from Atlanta, GA) are cousins with a common love of the 30A area. When they found Cousins' Cabana they knew it was "it" from the moment that they walked into the living room and saw the 180 degree view of the Gulf before them. And after they purchased and moved in, they knew it was the perfect place for them to enjoy time together with the family. Cousins' is distinct since it is not just a "rental" but is primarily furnished and decorated to be the Cousins' home away from home.

Beth Tannenbaum & Jeff Cohen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Beth Tannenbaum & Jeff Cohen chose Alys Beach

The Cousins have loved the 30A area and had been coming down for family breaks for years. However, the Villas of Sunset Beach offered not only the perfect condo but also set back and away from the congestion of 30A and directly on the beach with perfect views of the sand, surf and sunsets!.

What makes this condo unique

Although a peaceful retreat, Cousin's Cabana is next to the pool and the steps down to the beach. The town center of Rosemary beach is only a short (less than 5 minute) walk for shopping and dining. Alyse beach resturants are just 5 minute walk in the other direction. The Villas take pride in their pristine wide beach. Now that we have completely renovated the condo, it is absolutely spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a great time! This was our first time down to the 30A and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay! The place is absolutely beautiful and we loved the lcoation-- Close tot he beach, heated pool, walk to restaurants, shops, etc. We look forward to our next trip to Cousi's Cabana!!

Simply stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our young teens over Soring Break and it was just fabulous. The condo is incredibly spacious and the furnishings are top notch. The kitchen is simply gorgeous and well stocked...they even had a crockpot! By far, my favorite part of this hone was the view ever!! Pottery Barn pillows were a nice touch!! Beds were incredibly comfortable!! We will be back!!

Lovely but crowded!

  • 4 of 5

We were very impressed by the condo. The furnishings and decor are beautiful, the kitchen is well stocked, never wanted for anything and we cooked in quite a bit. Had a bit of problem with the HVAC but the property manager had someone there when in an hour and solved the problem(AMAZING)! The view is awesome. The ONLY downside is the amount of people on the beach. Everyone who stays on the Seacrest Beach inland side of 30A comes to the beach at the Villas, way too many people.

Fantastic views, comfortable home, perfect

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don’t do this place justice. Right on the water, 2nd floor, perfect views. Everything is right where you need it to be. Plenty of plates, silverware, cookware etc., beds were comfortable. TVs in each room giving 4 adults and 3 kids under 11 plenty of place to spread out.

Everything in rosemary and seacrest beach is walking distance. Never moved the cars once we parked.

Recommend booking beach chairs as soon as you can; we did 2 weeks in advance and still were 2nd row all week.

Only thing for the owners: maybe curtains in the master bedroom? In June sun rises at 540 AM and without curtains you knew it was sunrise! Upside was early risers got a nice walk on the beach.

Perfect week in a perfect place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have hitting the grind stone hard for several months and needed a break. As soon as we waked in We both knew we had found something special, a real piece of heaven. Beautifully appointed condo, it was as if the owners knew us and what we could need or want during our stay. But the balcony and beach were amazing! We already booked again for this fall!

What a wonderful world

The condo is well appointed, but the fabulous view is the highlight. The only thing one needs to bring are bathing suits and beach towels. See you again next year!
