"We stayed for a week in mid-July at this house in Rosemary Beach. First the positives - the location of this property can't be beat. It's 20 steps to the pool, and a lovely, shaded walk to the beach (about 3 minutes). The house is close to downtown with shops/restaurants, etc. Very convenient for ice cream walks in the afternoon.
Now the less -positives - the kitchen needs improvements. The refrigerator does not cool enough. The oven/stove are very slow to heat up. We did a lot of cooking during our stay, so these things mattered. Perhaps for those who eat out a lot, these things won't be a big deal. During our stay, there was a portable AC unit on the main level - the central AC did not work, it seems. This portable AC unit was very loud.
Another thing to keep in mind, the upstairs bedroom on the 3rd floor does NOT have a door. It's loft-like, very cute, but no door/no privacy. Perhaps not a huge deal, but just keep in mind. We didn't realize this.
The house has a lovely big porch with rocking chairs, where we sat, drank coffee, kept our beach toys, etc. That was nice. There is also a small courtyard with grill and table, lovely for sitting in the evenings, after sunset.
Overall a good property. Could use minor improvements."
