Absolutely Perfect

This home was a perfect place for our family spring break. We had two families stay here and there was plenty of room. The living/family space was great for just hanging out, the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, the home was gorgeous and the location was absolutely perfect... close to the beach and downtown so that our teenage daughters could roam around on their own. HIGHLY recommend. Will definitely rent again

Excellent House, Great Location

Our family has stayed at Rosemary Beach 7 or 8 times and this is one of the best houses we have ever had. The layout and interiors are great and there is tons of room. The owner provides 6 bikes, which saves money on rentals. They also provide a beach wagon with lots of toys and chairs for the beach. The house is 1 block from the playground and two blocks to the pool and beach access, which takes you to a less crowded part of the beach but still close to the western green. The owner was accessible and very easy to work with. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location and everything you could ask for!

We love to vacation in Rosemary Beach as our favorite stop on 30A so we came down this month for the wine festival and had a wonderful time! This area really is out of a storybook and such a wonderful escape but this house....! The Creole Cottage is one house from the playground, one block from the heated pool, and another block from the beach walk over with handicap ramp. Aside from the perfect location, it had the perfect layout for us as well with 3 bedrooms plus baths downstairs, another on the main (2nd floor), and a huge area on the third floor with living space and sleeper sofas so you really could fit several families or groups in this beautiful home! The wrap around porches had tables, chairs and a swing to enjoy relaxing. I swear the kitchen had 2 of everything and was a chefs dream! The owner was amazing and even put out baby gates before our arrival because I mentioned we were bringing our 2 year old sons with us. I can honestly say that there was not a single snap or disappointment and we would be thrilled to rent this house every single time we come back to Rosemary Beach!
