Rosemary Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Bunk Area, Sleeps 7

If you are looking for cozy and fun cottage in Rosemary Beach, then Cruz Cottage awaits you! Step onto a private front porch and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors swinging on the porch swing.

Once inside, you'll enter an open living area that is great for families to gather, from the roomy living room and built-in daybed to a fully equipped kitchen and dining room that seats 8.

The second floor accommodates two guest rooms, both with queen beds, TV's with DVD players and private baths. Enjoy the long balcony porch that adjoins the bedrooms for morning coffee, a cocktail at dusk or laying back in the hammock.

Rosemary Beach was designed by the same town planners who created Seaside. It is set high upon the

dunes overlooking the pristine white sands and crystal waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Sky pool, fitness center and tennis center are only steps away from our cottage. The Coquina

pool is a three minute walk from the cottage. Rosemary Beach is small paradise to be explored with

many parks, boardwalks, and nature paths.

Rosemary Beach and its surroundings are ideal to explore on a bike. Miles of paved trail at the

Beaches of South Walton are ideal for biking during your visit to Rosemary Beach. Both beginner and

advanced cyclists enjoy the 18.6-mile scenic 30-A bike trail that winds through the area's coastal

dune lakes and villages.

The state parks offer great trails for off-road biking as well. Don?t miss Point Washington State

Park's Eastern Lake Biking and Hiking Trail, which offers a 3, 5 and 10-mile trail loop winding

through a variety of natural vegetation and wildlife habitats.

You can rent a bike in town at the Bamboo Bicycle Company only a three minutes walk from our cottage.

House was great, but with some issues

  • 3 of 5

The layout of the house was perfect for our party. It has a nice large backyard that our Grandchildren enjoyed, along with several bikes provided. The issue we had was the entry door handle was very loose and would not catch the latch. This meant we had to keep the door locked with the deadbolt in order for it to remain closed. We called this issue in to the contact number provided twice, but the issue was never addressed. Also, the wifi was so inadequate and slow that it was mostly unusable. It rained during our last night at the house, and we found rain seeping through the windows and running down the walls in the staircase. If the wifi was updated to current speed standards and some minor maintenance on the house was addressed, we would certainly rent this home again.

Very welcoming and comfortable. Enjoyed the kitchen, dining, & living areas as well as the bdrms/bth

  • 4 of 5

The property had most everything we needed. It seems like the 3rd floor needs better airflow...summer is hot. The other two bedrooms could really use a ceiling fan each. My family consisting of 3 married couples enjoyed the convenience of each having their own bedroom/bathroom as well as a half bath on the main floor.

We needed 6 bikes. The ad said they had 4 on property, so we rented 2. When we arrived there were 6. The bikes on property could use some care. The one my husband used the chain kept failing off...seats were so rusted they could not be moved. We did find a tire pump under the kitchen sink--(very helpful).

We are a movie family and played some games....The couch/daybed area seating was perfect for our family! The dining room table was wonderful for our family of 6 to gather around for meals as well as games.

All in all we enjoyed our first visit to Rosemary Beach, the neighborhood was very quaint. It was helpful to get the information that the street parking is for anyone and not assigned to a certain unit. Especially since they don't want the sidewalks blocked by parking cars in the driveway. The gate to the backyard is very tight for driving a car through.

Fun House!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Cruz Cottage~ there were 4 of us, two adults & two kids. There was plenty of room.

Great yard, we grilled out one night. The pictures do not do this house justice.

Great location too! Short walk in to town, and RIGHT next to fitness center if you're in to that.

This house had everything we needed & was a cozy place to stay :))

Our first visit to Rosemary Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cute house, perfect for our get away! Short walk to pool and not to far from beach once you figure your way around. Perfect walking distance to town as well! Property was clean and exactly as described. The sugar shack was a huge hit with kiddos and the southern or summer kitchen (don't remember name) was really good for breakfast. I do recommend this property to friends and family. It is a bit of a walk to the beach but their is parking close if needed!!!

Rosemary with adult kids.

  • 5 of 5

The property was represented accurately, clean and well maintained. The owner was helpful and responded to our questions in a timely manner. The tennis courts at Rosemary are very expensive to use. I would recommend this property.

Decent house but a few kinks

  • 2 of 5

We arrived and due to the rain the entire street was flooded. This is obviously not the owner's fault, but it was the only flooded street in all of Rosemary. We couldn't pass and had to drive everywhere as it was thigh-deep.

In addition, there was construction on ALL FOUR SIDES of the property. Had I known, we would have reconsidered, but it was not disclosed. The construction noise occurred 7 days a week (even Sunday) and began at 7am. With the kids on the second floor, they would wake up first, and in tern, we would. We had to have every blind down at all times as there were people at every level on all sides. Washing dishes there was someone directly outside smoking, going up there stairs where there are no blinds, there were people on scaffolding so you had to assume from 7a-6p you were being viewed by someone. The view out of the side was a giant dumpster and a portable toilet so having the blinds down was a necessity anyway.

All of the showers had lighting/electrical issues so you had to shower in the dark. In addition, the fridge/freezer had issues so we basically lost all of our food and had to use an ice chest.

Since our stay was a full two weeks, the issues, along with the lack of sleep due to the noise, made us eager to get home, to say the lease.

The house itself is set up fine. Lots of stair climbing (so careful with the real little ones) and there is a distinct lack of storage particularly in the Master on the 3rd floor. (there really is no storage) so two weeks is tough.

Verify that all things are rectified before taking the plunge. Had I known it was smack dab in the middle of a construction zone, I would have reconsidered.

Owner's Response: I'm disappointed that this guest did not enjoyed their stay. It is our goal to provided quality rental at a reasonable price and that our guest relax and enjoy their stay. I can not control the weather and unfortunately it was the rainiest week that Rosemary Beach has seen in a long time. Several streets flooded and water had to be pumped out. The problem was solved promptly. There are currently two homes under construction near my property. Not four. The construction of these properties are in the final stages. The cottage was completely booked from March through September only one guest complained about construction noise. My family stayed at the property in July for three weeks and construction noise was not a problem. Construction work at Rosemary is strictly controlled and allowed during specific times of the day and week. Fortunately all construction around the property should be completed within two months. I regret that this guest had bad experience with construction. One shower did have a lighting issue and it has been resolved. There are no lighting issues at this house. The refrigirator works perfect. This is the first time in seven years of renting this cottage thst i have received a complaint about the Fridge and Storage space. All second floor bedrooms have their individyaul closet with ample closet space for beach cottage and the third floor bedroom has an armoire with hanging space and drawers and an additional space for hanging. Yes, this is a three story cottage with a bedroom and large bath on the third floor and like most cottages in Rosemary Beach there is some stair climbing. Finally all guest when they check in are notified that if the cleaning is not up to their standard or if anything is not working in the property, to notify the property manager or me and the matter will be resolved promptly. I am sure, that but not for the constant rain during their stay, that this guest would have enjoyed her stay at my cottage just as many others have in the past.
