This area opens to an additional 650 square feet of covered/shuttered porch complete with a swinging bench and rocking chairs. A teak outdoor dining table completes the porch!

Sit back and relax while viewing the beautiful gulf coast... or relax on the covered patio downstairs while viewing the full size private pool (approximately 15-feet x 30-feet) complete with comfortable outdoor lounge chairs. Do not forget to enjoy the private outdoor shower after a long day at the beach!!! There is also a large stainless gas grill for those special summer meals.

This is truly a home to be remembered...

Wonderful upgrade

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gritz Carlton immediately following its recent upgrades, and the house was amazing! Decor was amazing ~ perfect for several couples or a large family ~ incredible location that was convenient to the beach and nearby restaurants and shopping ~ we never got in our cars once we arrived, nor did we need a bike or golf cart the whole trip...the pool was Huge for what you would expect for the area- extremely private. Kitchen was perfectly equipped, & grilling area was awesome!! . Everyone had plenty of space and privacy in the house ~~ the beach was beautiful and not overcrowded at all ~~ we will definitely be back at the Gritz Carlton soon!!

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Grits Carlton for 10 days, before, during and after our daughter's wedding in Santa Rosa. It was absolutely perfect for our family and the bridesmaids! We loved having the private pool, such a special treat, and the balconies and porches provided a beautiful place for pictures. The house is so comfortable, and we enjoyed recooperating and relaxing post wedding. We hated to leave and certainly hope to return someday!

Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time staying at "The Gritz!" The house was in a great location, close to the beach, shops and restaurants in both Seacrest and Rosemary. One of our favorite things was the size of the pool. The living area was spacious and accommodating and the kitchen was well equipped. Kristi was very responsive to our calls and we would definitely recommend this house to others. We visit this area often and we agreed that this was one of our favorite properties.

Fantastic Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of July 21-28 at the Grits Carlton, along with my 3 adult children and their boyfriend/girlfriends. What a beautiful home Kristi has! We loved the location as it doesn't have other homes next to it and our adult family didn't have to wake up to screaming small children. Everything is extremely comfortable, sofa, beds, outdoor furniture and Kristi is very accomodating with answering any of your questions or needs. The highlight of our vacation was our older son (30) proposing on the beach to his girlfriend! This home is perfect for the family with older children as well as younger if you are worried about them annoying your neighbors. The pool was a decent size as well and very refreshing after sitting on the hot beach. There is an outside shower as well!! You are very close to the shopping in Rosemary Beach and the girls and I spent many hours at the Rosemary Trading Company and Patchoulli's! Wild Olives was great for lunch and for dinner Edwards or Paradis was out of this world!! We will have so many wonderful memories from this vacation! You can't go wrong with this home! Thanks again Kristi for a fantastic experience!!

Another outstanding helping of the Grits!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year to stay at the Grits Carlton and once again it was a most delightful place to be with family for a beach vacation. Kristi is just wonderful to work with and makes it so easy if you have any questions about anything. We entertained family who were staying in Rosemary Beach and they all agreed my family got the "best house"! We hope to return next year and bring our first grandchild to experience the "Grits"! Thanks for a providing such a lovely home for all to enjoy.

A Memorable Month at the Grits last year

  • 5 of 5

I was looking at the calendar for the Grits to check availability for a return visit and then realized I never wrote a review. My husband and I spent four weeks in this wonderful house last August/September and this was third time we've rented in Water's Edge. In our opinion, there isn't another house in Water's Edge that compares for charm, comfort and privacy and the pool is the absolutely the best. We spent hours reading and lounging on the porch swing on the second level. The proximity to all the shops in Seacrest and Rosemary made this location ideal. The little sundry shop right across 30-A is great for getting a morning paper and breakfast sandwiches. Kristi is so accommodating and gracious. She was available by phone or e-mail anytime we had a question and it was so much easier to call her than to go through an agency, as we've always done before. Can't wait to go back!
