The living area provides not only the ocean view, but also the view of the pool. The kitchen is fit for a professional cook and extremely well equipped, a perfect place to make toast or a 5-course gourmet dinner. The adjoining dining area is large and spacious and includes table and chairs for 6 as well as a bar dining for four. The living room includes lots of comfortable seating and a gas fireplace for the entire crowd to gather. The new 65" HD-4k flat screen TV with Sharp surround sound system, HD cable and a Blue Ray DVD player (along with complementary video collection & WiFi connections) provides the perfect setting to enjoy sports or to have a movie night for the family. The sound system is Bluetooth compatible so you can play your favorite tunes from your phone. There is even a full collection of board games and books in the armoire. We have taken care to anticipate the needs of our guests.

The balcony is the perfect extension of the living area and is fully furnished and allows for Gulf-view dining or lounging with the sound of the waves providing the background music. There is NO bad view in the unit!

The master bedroom is a true sanctuary. With a king sized Tempurpedic Cloud bed, luxury linens, iHome stereo (iPhone 6 compatible), a 55” HD flat screen smart TV, private sitting area, his and her vanities and dressers. The adjoining bathroom is a total Spa featuring a jetted bathtub for two, large walk-in shower with rain shower head, separate dressing room and generous closet, what more could anyone ask for! The sitting area is perfect for reading your favorite book or having you morning coffee in the bay window. There is really nothing like waking up to the view of your own palm tree.

The other two bedrooms (each with their own bath) are comfortably appointed one with a king bed and the other with an XL twin (NOTE: 125 lb weight limit) over a Queen bunk bed and both have 37" TV’s with WiFi connected BlueRay DVD's. All bedrooms have memory foam/gel mattress and custom-made linens that were designed specifically with the guest in mind.

Overall 2,100 square feet give our guests and their families plenty of room to get together and lots of nooks and crannies in which to enjoy some alone time.

Whether you want to spend time in the sun by the ocean front heated pool, lounge on the beach, swim in the surf, walk to Rosemary Beach for shopping, “doing” lunch, or just relax inside in the cool, comfort, and quiet - you have it all in this outstanding villa-Cousins' Cabana (Unit C-201)!

Please note that the rental does include linens for the condo but does not provide any beach towels. Beach chair rentals are available for an extra charge from the SeaOats Beach Services who maintains a kiosk on the beach. We also try to keep the condo equipt with several beach chairs for complementary use of our guests.

About Beth Tannenbaum & Jeff Cohen

Carl & Beth (from Nashville, TN) and Jeff & Debbie (from Atlanta, GA) are cousins with a common love of the 30A area. When they found Cousins' Cabana they knew it was "it" from the moment that they walked into the living room and saw the 180 degree view of the Gulf before them. And after they purchased and moved in, they knew it was the perfect place for them to enjoy time together with the family. Cousins' is distinct since it is not just a "rental" but is primarily furnished and decorated to be the Cousins' home away from home.

Beth Tannenbaum & Jeff Cohen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Beth Tannenbaum & Jeff Cohen chose Alys Beach

The Cousins have loved the 30A area and had been coming down for family breaks for years. However, the Villas of Sunset Beach offered not only the perfect condo but also set back and away from the congestion of 30A and directly on the beach with perfect views of the sand, surf and sunsets!.

What makes this condo unique

Although a peaceful retreat, Cousin's Cabana is next to the pool and the steps down to the beach. The town center of Rosemary beach is only a short (less than 5 minute) walk for shopping and dining. Alyse beach resturants are just 5 minute walk in the other direction. The Villas take pride in their pristine wide beach. Now that we have completely renovated the condo, it is absolutely spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a great time! This was our first time down to the 30A and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay! The place is absolutely beautiful and we loved the lcoation-- Close tot he beach, heated pool, walk to restaurants, shops, etc. We look forward to our next trip to Cousi's Cabana!!

Simply stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our young teens over Soring Break and it was just fabulous. The condo is incredibly spacious and the furnishings are top notch. The kitchen is simply gorgeous and well stocked...they even had a crockpot! By far, my favorite part of this hone was the view ever!! Pottery Barn pillows were a nice touch!! Beds were incredibly comfortable!! We will be back!!

What a wonderful world

The condo is well appointed, but the fabulous view is the highlight. The only thing one needs to bring are bathing suits and beach towels. See you again next year!

Cousins' Cabana June 2017

  • 4 of 5


*The unit is spectacular. Top notch. It is beautiful. The unit has been remodeled and the pictures of the unit are spot on. The master bedroom is fantastic. The bed is very comfortable. I have a bad back and I didn't experience any problems. I believe it is a memory foam mattress. The master bathroom is super clean and sleek. Very nice. The kitchen is spacious and a great place to gather. The living room is great with lots of movies included through the TV services. Big 65", I think. The best part of the unit... the balcony. Very spacious and with two sitting areas. One with a nice couch and one with table top. The breeze, the view, the moon, the sun are all so wonderful on the balcony.

*The location is very nice. It's not technically in Alys Beach. Just on the outskirts of the white columns. However, it is walking distance to everything in Rosemary Beach which is nice because parking there is scarce.

*Family Oriented- There were 7 of us with a 5 and 11 year old.

*Great access to beach and pool.

*Ocean Front- Just the right level to look over the dunes.


*Swimming Pool- Small (This only matters if you are pool goer.) Rules- Don't plan on leaving anything at the pool. You will be asked to take things with you if you leave. No umbrellas for shade. (Recommendations to owners.- Complex should purchase three tables and chairs with umbrellas. I would also suggest purchasing another 8 to 10 lounge chairs to go around the pool. There is room for them.) No swimming at night. I can understand not going until all hours of the night, but maybe have a 10:00 closing time. The closing time is at sunset around 6:30 or 7. (Having said this, the pool is nice next to the beach. Nothing spectacular, but nice and refreshing.)

*Beach- The umbrella businesses have taken over. Picture a beach about 50 to 60 yards wide. Half of that is commercial umbrellas available for rent ($55 for two chairs/day- Hardly anybody rents them. Most were empty). (The owners did give us a refund for the beach chair rental.) The other half of the beach is split between two properties (Beachside of 30A- Sunset Villas/Other side of 30A Seacrest- Very large complex). The beach is shared between the two properties and there is a non-stop train of people coming through the complex to the beach. Picture John Candy in the movie Summer Rental. That is what it looks like.

All in All- We really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Dear Mark Thank you for your kind words. As for the Alyse Beach location this was assigned by VBRO using Google. I reported that it was not accurate but VBRO refuses to change because it would not match their Google location. I will pass on your suggestions about the pool to the HOA. The foool furniture is brand new this season, so hopefully they can fill the space in more in the near future. Thanks again for taking the time to make your review. Beth Tannenbaum

Stunning property; Unforgettable memories

  • 5 of 5

This property is immaculate and has absolutely everything you need for a wonderful family vacation. We love the beach and pool access right outside the door. The second floor location allows for great gulf views and the convenience of by-passing the elevator for quick trips back to the condo. Love this place!! This was our second stay and we'll be back for many more!! ❤️
