“Rest Ashore” – Stunning 5+BR/5.5 Bath House with Private Pool

***We provide for your convenience beach service which includes set up of one umbrella, two lounge chairs, and one cocktail table (March through Thanksgiving).

** Ask us about Vie De Mer, our sister home in Water's Edge (VRBO 374278). Rent both homes and have 10 bedrooms, 10 baths & 2 PRIVATE POOLS!

One of the NEWer homes to be built in the lovely private gated community of Water’s Edge, adjacent to Rosemary Beach. This gorgeous vacation home is on the south side (beach side) of 30a, located 50 yards from the beach stairs. This subdivision has only 28 homes, which allows for low density private beach access. A set of chairs with cocktail table and umbrella are provided on the beach for our guests. “Rest Ashore” is a custom desinged 5-bedroom+, 5 ½ bath vacation home with over 3,100 square feet. It is a 3-level private home with office and media room. Beautiful hardwood and tile floors throughout. It is outfitted with high speed wireless internet and flat screen TVs with DVD or 'internet apps' in all bedrooms. All beds (to include the bunk beds!) have overhead reading lights for those who enjoy reading in bed.

The main floor boasts a gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, double refrigerators, 5 burner gas cook top and a Dacor double oven with warming drawer. The open floor plan makes entertaining easy with a dining room table for eight, a bar area that seats five, and a games table that seats six. Enjoy your own music through the IPOD friendly devices, or relax in front of the 55-inch flat-screen TV with surround sound, outfitted with Blue-Ray, Netflix, Hulu TV and Pandora Radio. A powder room is located just off the foyer.

Stroll out back to the porch and patio area and enjoy the largest private pool in the subdivision that has a state-of-the-art (saline) non chlorinated cleaning system. Bask in the Florida sun poolside, or take a short 50-yard stroll down a lovely landscaped, palm tree lined path to the beach stairs to enjoy the beautiful white sandy beach.

This home has 3 master suites. The first floor master is a large bedroom with a king bed and a private bathroom, outfitted with granite and travertine. Strategically located away from the family room, this suite provides both privacy and convenience. Its location on the main floor makes it especially nice for anyone with reduced mobility concerns.

The main master bedroom on the second floor is unbelievable! This large bedroom with king bed has a private porch that overlooks the pool, an expansive bathroom with granite countertops, double vanities, soaking tub, and dual showerheads (w/rain-head). Attached to this bedroom is a private office that overlooks the pool and has a view of the Gulf. This office is multi-functional, as it can be used as a quiet reading space, work area, or nursery/young child’s sleeping area. A Pack-n-Play is available for your use (please bring your own fitted sheet for that). The other second floor master has a king bed, and is also spacious and has a private deck with gulf view. The bathroom has granite, soaking tub, and dual shower heads. For the younger crowd, we have a fantastic room on this floor that has two bunk beds, each with twin over full sized bed, that will accommodate six people. It has its own private bathroom. A full-sized dedicated laundry room with extra large capacity front loading washer/dryer is on this level. It has ample storage space, with plenty of room to sort and fold laundry.

The tower rooms on the third floor are ideal for the ultimate kid retreat. The “pajama party room” has two full size beds with a semi-private bathroom. The adjacent media room is a kid's dream! It has a 55” flat panel TV with Blue-Ray, Netflix (200 + movies), Pandora Radio, and IPOD friendly devices with surround sound. The couch in here can pull out to a queen size bed. Both rooms have access to a large deck that provides great views of the Gulf.

The gated community provides privacy and serenity for a relaxing vacation, yet is conveniently located within a 3-minute walk to Rosemary Beach restaurants, shops, and spa. There is a 17-mile walk/bike path located just outside our entrance, and a Tom Fazio golf course is just a mile away. Fishing, sailing and kayaking are also available locally. Rosemary Beach has tennis courts and a fitness center that can be accessed for a fee. The Publix food store is only about a 5-minute car ride east on 98. The new outdoor shopping area in Panama City, called Pier Park, is a 10-minute drive east on 98. Pier Park has numerous restaurants and stores, and a new state-of-the-art movie cinema. Seaside is 7 miles west, and the Sandestin Outlet Mall, Silver Sands, is about 20 miles west.

We custom designed, professionally decorated, and carefully outfitted this home with comfort and quality in mind, and immersed ourselves in the details to ensure it would delight both the young and the wise! Come be our guest! “Rest Ashore” - the perfect place to create priceless memories with family and friends!

Guestbook comments from the owner


I can't thank you enough for the fabulous experience we had at Rest Ashore!! By far it was our favorite home that we have rented in our five years of going to Rosemary. The house more than exceeded our expectations. Not only was it clean, well equipped, comfortable, and "renter friendly", but you were so attentive and responsive to our questions and concerns. You all didn't spare any detail, from the abundance of hooks in all the rooms (so important when traveling with lots of kids in a season when layers are a must!!) to the Le Crueset pots (much appreciated by me who loves to cook). The five children adored having the heated pool, spending no less than two hours in it each day. It was also wonderful to have some many different living spaces for kids and grown-ups alike. For the first time in a long time I actually felt like I was taking a "vacation" with my family rather than a "trip". I have no doubt that your home and hospitality had a lot to do with that.

We look forward to renting Rest Ashore again next winter break. We'll be booking as soon as Atlanta Public Schools puts out their 2013-2014 academic calendar!

A great house for a beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14, including our three kids, their spouses, and their total 6 grandkids were at this home last week. The owners have taken SO many steps to make the stay comfortable. Remote controls are labeled, all appliances worked, all linens were in place, along with soap and shampoo in the showers.

This is a great neighborhood and we have stayed in three other houses over the years. This was our favorite due to the size of the home for our family, and the size of the pool.

We had a couple of questions when we arrived and Jane was lightning quick to respond.

Fantastic owners to work with.

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect. Great location, tons of room, the pool is wonderful after a day at the beach. The two refrigerators are great as well as the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. Family get together was enjoyed by all. Thank you for being so accommodating. WE will definitely return.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house has a great floor plan, large pool, and is a short walk to the beach stairs. Jane was great to deal with and I would stay there again. The only negatives were a few minor details. The house did not have a wine opener and only had 3 wine glasses when we checked in, so we had to purchase some. The smoke detector in the master started beeping at 4 am due to a low battery, so we had to change it out on a ladder. Outside of that we had a great week.

Perfectly outfitted for a wonderful family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 spent a restful and fun-filled week at Rest Ashore. Every amenity we needed and more were provided in this lovely home. As the owners suggested , bring only your beach towels. That was true. We , especially, loved the proximity to the beach and the nice size swimming pool for cooling off after a day in the sun.

The design of the home suited the varied ages of our grandchildren....everyone found bedrooms that suited them.

We no longer will have to search for a place to stay in Rosemary Beach...Rest Ashore is perfect!

Rest Ashore...3rd Consecutive Year

  • 5 of 5

We love everything about the property, the location (90 second walk to beach), the ability to walk, ride bikes to wherever we want to go.

We have 8 adults and 4 children, ages 6-12, and the property works well for all of us.

Jane is very responsive to any question. We hope to be back next year.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house. Plenty of space for our family of 13. The kids loved the bunk room. It was nice having two refrigerators and two ovens in the kitchen. The pool area was one of the nicest in the community, with the outside covered deck a huge plus. We love Waters Edge!
