About Kathy Herman

Homeowners, Jacien and Laura/ Tom and Kathy of Atlanta, Ga

The couples are good friends and love to vacation in Rosemary together and with their families!

Kathy Herman purchased this house in 2008

Why Kathy Herman chose Rosemary Beach

After vacationing in Rosemary Beach for a number of years, we decided to purchase a home here. We looked at a number of homes, but we fell in love with the location and design of this home. The original owners built this home to live in and no expense was spared in decorating the home by a professional decorating firm from Atlanta. The four of us love the unique quality of the Rosemary Beach community and we think you will love it too! An incredible place to unwind and relax!!

What makes this house unique

Since we are from Atlanta, we love to park our cars for the week and go everywhere we want on foot or bike. There are coffee shops, restaurants and a lovely spa within a one minute walk.

Our kids can have MUCH more freedom to explore the community than they can in the hustle and bustle of a big city. Of course, Rosemary is one of the most beautiful beaches in the WORLD!

We added the wonderful private pool and french doors from the kitchen to the pool which make for a wonderful open floor plan!

WOW! Fulfilled our wildest expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed possibly the best vacation we have ever enjoyed. This set of Grandparents have dreamed of getting all 13 ½ of us together. My Son and two daughters traveled many miles from their respective locations along with their spouses and kids and we enjoyed the perfect setting for family get-together. THE GREAT ESCAPE provided each family a spacious home (tons of square feet) where all had room to breathe, and yes even read a book on the front porch, short walks to the beach and then to return to the this spacious home where we enjoyed our own personal pool, swam and the cousins had the time of their lives. Remarkable memories! The house lacked nothing! The owner and property manager were fantastic to work with and very responsive. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a fantastic experience!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a beach vacation with another family. Our group consistent of ten adults (four couples and two singles) and two children. It was very spacious , comfortable and beautifully decorated. Although the house is constantly rented it did not show any wear and tear. Although they had only a few hours to clean between renters, the house was immaculate. The pool was cleaned twice the week we were there. This truly felt like a home not a rental. Rosemary Beach has pristine beaches and is very family friendly. Be sure to rent some bike then come back to the Great Escape for a swim and cook out on the patio grill. The only negative about this house is the sofa bed in the downstairs den. We had planned to use this room for a single adult but the mattress was extremely uncomfortable. She had to move to the bunk room, which worked out fine for us.

The gourmet kitchen was so inviting we cooked most of our evening meals at the house rather than eat out. The kitchen is fully equipped. The carriage house has a full size refrigerator and upgraded appliances as well.

Since returning to Texas I have recommended this house, and Rosemary Beach, to several friends. I would return to this house without hesitation Thank you for sharing your home.

Perfect house for a fabulous family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our recent stay (June 2012) at this lovely and incredibly spacious home. The property description and photos on VRBO are not hyperbole. The house is every bit that fabulous and more. Here are just some of the things my family loved about this home:

(1) The location. The location is ideal - we were so close to town and the pools, but we also had a boardwalk right out the front door that took us directly to the beach.

(2) The size and layout. This large home, with separate carriage house, has an ideal layout for multiple families. The home can easily accommodate four families, there are nooks and crannies galore for the kids to have quiet time, and all of the bedrooms are generously sized.

(3) The amenities. The lovely owner thought of everything - including ample linens, a fully equipped kitchen, two laundry rooms, an ice maker, a wine refrigerator, games for the kids, pool toys for the pool, and toiletries in the baths.

(4) The furnishings. All of the furnishings are tasteful and the beds are incredibly comfortable.

(5) The price. The weekly rate for this home is very competitive and much less than one would expect for a house of this caliber.

(6) The heated pool . You wouldn't think you would need a heated pool at the end of June in Florida, but it sure does make swimming much more enjoyable. Ordinarily, our kids love to go to the community pools, but they much preferred the heated pool at the Great Escape. We logged many hours in the beautifully landscaped pool and it was very nice having a place for the older children to play while the little ones napped. While some other homes have heated pools, they usually charge an extra fee to turn on the heater. This pool is heated with no additional charge.

(7) The owner . The owner was an absolute delight to work with and was incredibly responsive and professional.

In summary, this was our fifth visit to Rosemary Beach and the Great Escape was by far the best house we have rented (even though it was not the most expensive). We will definitely be back!

Fantastic location and spacious layout!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families stayed here at the end of June. It was our 4th trip to Rosemary (and 4th house) and we couldn't have been more delighted with the location and layout of "The Great Escape". The center of town was around the corner, and the boardwalk outside the wide front porch led in a few short steps to the long green. It was a straight shot to the beach down the boardwalk which made it easy for our crew to get out the door. The beautifully decorated house provided a lovely respite from the summer heat, and we were touched by all the small details.. ample towels, 2 sets of washers/dryers, an extremely well stocked kitchen and soap/amenities in each bath. The carriage house was a superb bonus space. The secondary sitting/TV area upstairs was great for the kids, as was the pool just off the kitchen. After this experience, we will ALWAYS want a pool outside our door! Finally, the owner was truly wonderful to work with and made everything easy and so much more personal than working with a faceless rental agency.

Beautiful, charming and spacious!!

  • 5 of 5

I am late in writing this review but we absolutely LOVED our spring break vacation at this house. The decorations are beautiful and the owner is so lovely to work with (and very accessible if ever we needed her). The pool was great - a good size with a nice patio area around it and grill for cooking out. The home was spacious and perfect for our 3 families (we have 6 adults and 8 kids between the 3 families). We never felt like we were on top of each other at all. This home is right near the downtown RB area so we could walk to the shops and (to the kids delight) the yummy snow cone shop. We also were a few minutes walk from Camp Rosemary Beach which is great for young children if you are interested in that (Camp RB is a 2 hour craft/ activity at 11 am to get the kids out of the sun for a short time).

The front porch swing is the perfect place to hang out anytime - especially late at night. Such a lovely view down the boardwalk and you really feel like you are in another place and time. Rosemary Beach is such a special place!

This house is located right on the boardwalk so we could easily let the kids sit on the front porch without concern of cars and we rode our bikes & scooters to the beach (only took a few minutes). There was also a large grassy area within 1 minutes walk where we played games after dinner. It was just altogether lovely and charming. We loved every minute of our vacation at Great Escape and are definitely interested in renting it again.

Enjoy your stay and feel secure that you are getting a great deal for your money!

The Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

The Great Escape is the perfect home for a big family vacation at Rosemary Beach. We had multiple families staying together and there was plenty of room for all of us. The house is beautifully decorated - we felt like we were staying at a designer show house! Multiple 'master' type bedrooms and the bedroom with two sets of twin bunk beds suited our needs perfectly. The house is a quick walk to several wonderful restaurants, but if you prefer to cook - the kitchen is ideal. It is well supplied and the appliances are top notch! The wine fridge and ice-maker were a really nice touch. The beach is a straight shot down the boardwalk and there are bikes to use if you want. The beach itself is gorgeous! In the evenings it was nice to lounge by the pool, have a glass of wine and enjoy the lovely surroundings. The owner was great to work with and we hope to return next year!
