Charming carriage house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week in this charming carriage house. It truly has everything that you need and is very close to the square. The owners were absolutely wonderful to work with and very accommodating. We will be back soon and are looking forward to staying here again!

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

You really don't require much when you're taking a beach vacation and the accommodations were perfect for us. We arrived early on Saturday but check-in wasn't until later that day, however, both Linda and Karen were helpful in allowing us to leave our luggage so we could get to the beach ASAP! The bikes were a nice addition since you have about a 10 min walk to the beach but riding down 30A to grab lunch or a slow ride through Rosemary Beach beautifully fosters that much needed relaxation.

The mattress, linens and towels were easily accessible and the aforementioned "pillow issue" was nothing even close. They invoke a quaint ambiance of this carriage house and you can easily built a great for all ages!

The water does take time to warm up so you'll have to be patient. There is a dehumidifier near the bed so you'll need to carefully empty the container. It will be full of water so be sure to hold it from the bottom or you'll spill some all over the floor like my fiancé did :)

As we sit here waiting for our flight, we both conclude that the carriage house provided us a perfect spot to enjoy our engagement vacation and eagerly await the moment for which we can return to 30A.

Thank you Karen and Linda!!!

Loved it, will book again.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week long stay at Karen's Carriage house. It was perfect for my husband, myself and our dog. I wasn't sure about staying in a small studio for a full week but it was actually pretty awesome and larger than it looks in photos. Husband bringing me breakfast in bed every day? Yes, I could get used to this! I like the layout of this Carriage house, it doesn't feel cramped (we moved the dining table to the side of wall to open up the room.) The closet is HUGE! Bathroom has lots of drawers and there's a also chest of drawers. Nice reading lights on both sides of King size bed and a TV close by.

Courtyard area is lovely and private. We had a few evening cookouts on the grill. Location is great, quiet but a 5-10 minute walk to all the action (City courtyard, pools, beach). Bikes are provided but we ended up walking as everything is so close.

A few things to note: there's no washer and dryer so bring a bag for dirty laundry to bring home. Kitchen is good size, has dishwasher and lots of counter space but has apt size fridge and small electric burners. Oven is standard countertop toaster oven type.

This place might not be as "luxurious" as some places we've stayed in Rosemary, but it's a winner in my book and will definitely look for this place again. And, the price? Can't be beat.

Terrible, needs improvements, not what I expected at all!

  • 1 of 5

This place was not worth the money. I expected a lot better accommodations since it was part of one of the beautiful homes in Rosemary Beach.

When we arrived the air was barely working, the refrigerator was leaking all over the floor because it was in defrost cycle, I guess, and there were so many throw pillows that one of the single beds had to be occupied with them. The owner was timely in her response to my concerns but also gave financial excuses to not getting the AC repaired. It was serviced to temporarily fix the problem and hopefully it will be repaired before by next tenants stay. We also had a time when we had to wait for a plumber to show. We were not having issues but they were scheduled to check all plumbing to both house and above garage unit. Not sure what that was all about....?

The refrigerator when finally not defrosting was then over cooling to the point of freezing everything in it. It needs service, too.

The shower had mildew, and I wore flip flops when showering because I was fearful of a fungus!

The bed was very uncomfortable! Mattress had sunken, worn out places. The lighting was dark and gloomy. The bulb wattage was slow low that half the time u didn't realize u had turned the light on!

And finally, the last day there, as I pulled a towel from under the vanity, the largest roach I have ever seen comes running out!!!!! Gross!

Owner's Response: We are terribly sorry to hear of your experience with our Carriage House at Rosemary Beach. We thought we had addressed all your requests at the time of your stay. The A/C needed free-on only, it was fixed same day as your call, the plumbing was checked as an Annual Maintenance Check and luckily A & G Plumbing serviced the unit and repaired and replaced a few items which were from normal wear and tear. They don't do service work on weekends. The refrigerator the week prior to your stay was in excellent working order and a new one will be installed tomorrow after reading your review. 100 Watt Light bulbs will be installed tomorrow, thank you for that suggestion, and we will review the mattress this weekend on my arrival to see if a new one is in order. I cleaned the shower personally 2 weeks prior to your stay, therefore, mold comes with high humidity, and since the A/C was out 1/2 the day or longer, it could have quickly come to the wet shower. I am really sorry you had a problem but our maid will definitely check it before she leaves the unit each clean to insure it is perfect. Thank you so much for also mentioning too many bed pillows, some will be removed to insure ample space to enjoy the 2 twin beds and I apologize for that issue. As for Florida roaches, they are able to sneak in to find food, we will be treating the unit tomorrow and I wish you had called us for immediate attention to that problem. We are really sorry for your trouble, and hope that a Credit to be discussed with you will help with your disappointment in the unit. It is our intention to only provide a great experience and we are sad you were not 100% happy with your stay. Most of our tenants are very happy and we strive to always listen to your comments. So thank you again for your taking your valuable time for a review, as otherwise I could not possibly know of your concerns. Linda Geiger will be in touch tomorrow to go over a mutually agreeable solution to your problems.

Clean, Comfortable and Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this carriage house for 8 nights Mid April. The owners Karen and Linda are great to work with and Karen even stopped by on our last day to ensure our trip was exceptional. The carriage house is small so I wouldn't try to cram more than 2 adults and maybe a child in, but the charm and space it has was perfect for us and our little yorkie. Finding a pet friendly place is no easy task when your planning a trip as cleanliness is usually an issue, but everything was great with this! We truly loved walking our dog every morning and evening around the perfect town and landscapes. The beach is a little bit of a hike, so bring a collapsible wagon to roll your stuff OR do like we did and drive over to the inlet beach public access which is just a couple blocks away and park. We also enjoyed making the donut hole a morning ritual, which is very close to the carriage house. We also took full advantage of the two cruiser bikes and rode all over 30A. All in all we would not hesitate to book this carriage house again, and hope to book some other properties that Karen has as well in the future.

Owner's Response: You guys are the best ever, thanks for such an amazing review, we love helping guests have a great vacation, and hope you do return back very soon. All our properties are Pet Friendly including one at Watercolor and a Gulfview townhouse near Alys Beach. So send me a photo sometime of your Yorkie so I can show my 4 dogs his photo. They are fascinated by other dogs on tv and we always watch the Animal Channel to entertain them. Have a great summer and the Inlet Beach access is a great suggestion. We also go to the Deer Lake State Park and Grayton Beach State Park for the entire day if you want to see incredible Dunes.

Wonderful charming carriage house.

Perfect home with our labradoodle Gibson. The owner was super helpful and responded to our needs immediately. This was the perfect location. Loved taking long walks and riding bikes throughout all of the lovely unique neighborhoods. Thanks again Karen.
