Ahava Cottage -- Best Location on South Side Rosemary

Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Ahava Cottage is truly one of the premier rental properties in beautiful Rosemary Beach. Both Ahava and our other home, the adjacent Sababa Carriage House (see VRBO listing #195247) are located on the desirable Gulf side, are just a 2 minute walk to the beach and even closer to the fabulous Coquina Pool. All of Rosemary's most popular amenities -- beach, community pools, shopping, restaurants, fitness center, tennis, playground, bicycle rental -- are within a 5 minute walk of Ahava yet privacy and seclusion are yours as you sit on one of the outdoor porches and listen to the sounds of the sea.

Professionally and exquisitely decorated, Ahava has a chic and contemporary feel. It features an open living room with high ceilings, an upgraded kitchen with top of the line stainless steel appliances, wine cooler, and an amazing antique French Oak dining table. One of two master bedrooms is located on the first floor. The second floor features another master bedroom, an additional bedroom with 2 twin beds, and a bunk room with built-ins. A family room/sitting area (complete with sleeper sofa) and an office are also found on the second floor. A spiral staircase with custom railing leads to the third floor loft area that has partial Gulf.

Other features include granite countertops and Travertine flooring on the first floor, natural pecan hardwood flooring on the second and third floors, custom Roman shades, maple woodwork and built-ins throughout, oversized showers with Rainheads, and custom maple platform king-size beds in both master suites. TVs are in every bedroom and there is a flat-panel 42" TV in the main floor living room. There is a grill, outdoor shower, and ample outdoor furniture for you to lounge in, including a hammock next to the fountain.

While at Rosemary Beach do as little or as much as you like. You can spend the entire day on the beach or take advantage of the many activities available to you -- bicycle riding, parasailing, golfing, shopping, and tennis just to name a few. Rosemary has four community pools, one of which is heated and fully enclosed and another -- the Coquina Pool -- is heated when needed. Pamper yourself at the Solace Day Spa, take a class at the fitness center, do some shopping, eat in one of the many nearby restaurants, and rent a bicycle for the day. Whatever you do, you can't help but be taken in by some of the most beautiful, white sandy beaches you'll find anywhere in the world and by the elegant, serene, "upscale Mayberry" surroundings of Rosemary Beach.

About Kerri

We are a family of 4

Kerri purchased this house in 2008

Why Kerri chose Rosemary Beach

When we first came to Rosemary Beach 4 years ago for a wedding, we fell in love with the place. Having traveled the world, we knew this was one of the most beautiful spots we could ever find and became intent on owning a home here.

What makes this house unique

The Unique Benefits at this Carriage House

Our home is very close to both the beach and to a beautiful, large, negative-edge pool -- both are about a minute away. It's just a short walk to the main square in Rosemary. Once we're here, we find ourselves getting around more by bicycle than by car.

The house itself is spacious, bright, and open.

Lovely home in Rosemary!

  • 5 of 5

My family of three along with our close friends (a family of four) spent several days at Ahava Cottage recently and we had a great stay! The location is wonderful, just a short walk to Walkover A. The floor plan is well suited for two families. Would definitely stay again!

Wonderful vacation home - great for families! Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Ahava Cottage. The kitchen and living area is perfect for cooking and hanging out with the family. The beds were super comfortable, and there were plenty of bedrooms for the 7 of us and 2 year old granddaughter. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived. It is an easy 3 minute walk to the beach or the pool. We found the beach cart helpful in carrying the floats and extra chairs we found at the house. Also, the playground is right across the street. The owners were extremely attentive and quick to respond to questions and were so helpful. It was a memorable week, and we hope to return again to this wonderful vacation home.

Love this place and will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have 3 young children, so the convenience to a playground and the beach was amazing! All of the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for my kids and 4 adults. There are 2 staircases but we blocked them easily from my 1-year-old twins. We will continue to rent Ahava every time we return to Rosemary beach. Love it!!!

Excellent House and Owners

  • 5 of 5

Ahava Cottage is a wonderful house and Kerri was a pleasure to deal with. There was a bit of a cleanliness issue with the previous renters, but Kerri handled it very well and was very accommodating, which is greatly appreciated!

The location of the house is perfect - the toddlers loved the park across the street, walkover A or B is just minutes away and the Coquina pool is right around the corner. Everyone had a fantastic time, thank you so much!
