About the property

You have found The Little Beach House of Rosemary Beach! This architectural gem on Hamilton Lane designed by Geoffrey Mouen, a graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, has gained attention from around the world through feature articles in Southern Tour Magazine, New Old House, and Rosemary Beach by Richard Sexton.

Little Beach House is a 2 bedroom / 1 bathroom home located in Rosemary Beach on the North side of Highway 30A and can accommodate up to 6 guests. This beach home offers the perfect quiet and quaint getaway for a small family or group of friends. At a little more than 1,040 square feet with a single bedroom and a loft, the Little Beach House proves that simplicity can coexist with elegance. The home, which draws heavily upon Anglo-Caribbean aesthetics, is a seamless addition amidst the resort community’s tight, New Urbanism-influenced standards. Since construction was completed, it has been the backdrop for countless memories.

The Anglo-Caribbean influence on the Little Beach House—inspired by waterfront homes in the West Indies—is consistent with other homes in Rosemary Beach. The home’s stucco exterior is free of paint, save for the trim around the windows. A modest stoop leads into a compact home—one room deep and one room wide—with pine floors and high ceilings. In the southwest corner, cherry cabinets and a granite countertop highlight a perfect kitchen for an avid chef. In the opposite corner, a spiral staircase winds around a hard pine post to the second floor of the house.

Upstairs, the second-floor bedroom has a 15′-high vaulted ceiling lined with cypress boards. A loft, for a study or a bunkroom, is elevated above the bedroom. Fourteen windows and two doors are placed throughout the house—very few face the public walkway outside—to provide ample natural light while maintaining a cozy, private atmosphere.

A rear stoop leads out to pressure-treated pine wood deck overlooking a courtyard. A canopy of trees casts shadows over the outdoor shower.

Little Beach House is located directly on the boardwalk that leads to the beach and throughout the community of Rosemary Beach. This location allows you to easily walk to Rosemary’s shops, restaurants, or the local farmer’s market.

We really enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

The house is quaint & comfortable. It is small (cozy) the kitchen is small. The stairs going up to the bedroom are spiral & the stairs from the bedroom to the loft are very steep. Because of the stairs this house is not good for people with young children or people who have trouble going up & down stairs. We have two children almost 5 & 7, they did well & we were very comfortable. I would recommend this house for a couple or a small family, with one or two children. The location is wonderful. Very close to the pool, playground & Park. We loved our stay in Rosemary & in this house.

Gary the property manager was very helpful. He answered all of our questions quickly & was very efficient.

Perfect for a couples getaway or small family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 49 Hamilton Lane. It was perfect for our party of two. Our favorite part was the patio and the master bedroom was extremely open & comfortable. We would recommend this home for couples, or a family with 1-2 young children. The loft is directly above the master suite & has a trundle bed, and there is also a pullout couch on the main level. The home is in a great location & just a short bike ride to the beach or pool! The kitchen is small, but still has everything you need, especially if planning to grill on the patio or have dinner out in Rosemary. Do keep in mind, the bathroom & bedroom is on the second floor, so I wouldn't recommend this home if anyone in your party has a hard time with stairs. The houses curb appeal was one of the best in the area. We were sad to leave!

Owner's Response: Thank you Karen for choosing to stay at Little Beach House and for your review. We are glad that you and your family enjoyed celebrating your daughter's high school graduation in Rosemary Beach! The staircase to the loft is known as an alternating or staggered tread staircase. The staircases are used to provide access to areas such as lofts, without compromising limited space with a large staircase footprint. The treads are designed such that they alternate between treads for each foot (i.e., one step is wide on the left side; the next step is wide on the right side). It is a forward facing design with handrails. The staircase can be viewed in one of the master bedroom photos as well as a photo of the loft area. You can find additional information on these type staircases on websites such as Houzz.

Very cute updated cottage. A perfect space for a couple or small family.

  • 5 of 5

Most rentals of this size are garage apartments but this was a very sweet stand alone cottage. Location was perfect, a very short walk to pool, shops and eateries and a quick bike ride to the beach. The kitchen was big enough for one but along with the grill we had everything we needed to cook at home a couple of nights. Rosemary Beach in general was beautiful and well thought. We would visit the house and the town again.

Kids and I loved it

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Three people (single Dad and two kids). It was perfect sized. I think four is the max for this place though.

Kitchen is small but functional. We bought a bunch of groceries and ate in two of our three nights. We grilled steaks one night and they have everything you need. The deck is really nice to hang out on in the evenings. Two pools are an easy walk away. My kids liked changing it up.

One major item, you MUST be ok with stairs or this place will not work for you. We will definitely look to book this place again
