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 screed smart TV, private sitting area, his and her vanities and dressers.

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 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 in your reserved beach chairs 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.

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 Florida

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!!

Just got home... ready to visit Cousins Cabana again!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from Cousins Cabana a few hours ago. My husband and I agreed it was one of the best vacations we've had in a long time. The condo is just perfect and gorgeous. It was well equipped with things that make you feel at home. From a fully stocked kitchen to cook/bake, different placemats, to a laundry basket and step stool for kids-- it had all those little details other properties lack. The decor is beautiful and the furniture was comfortable. I have 2 young children and the condo was perfect for them (nothing down low for toddlers to grab and break). The property is also right between Rosemary and Alys.... which meant after grocery shopping, we parked the car and didn't drive anywhere. I highly recommend Cousins Cabana and can't wait to book our next vacation. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Megan: We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed Cousins' and 30A. As you can tell we have furnished and equipped Cousins' for our own use and not as a rental. We cannot wait to host you and your family again. The 2917 calendar is up to date for reservations. Take care and thank you for taking your time to write this review. Cousin Beth

Awesome, but not what we expected

  • 4 of 5

This is an awesome property and would be perfect for families with children. Our children are adults and we have no grandchildren, so we prefer a different setting. We intentionally go to this area at times when the crowds are traditionally low, but didn't get very lucky this year. The beach was uber crowded. We were told that the complex shares the beach with lots of units across the street, explaining the super crowds. The pool area is nice, the keypad needs some attention. The housekeeping staff must have been having a bad day, because when we arrived, there was broken glass in the master bedroom floor, the dining table glass top was really dirty and a lot of the dishes had been put away dirty. I contacted the owner and he explained they had recently changed services. If you have more than 2 vehicles, do not count on help from the on site staff. We got lucky, but wish we had done more research, since we had 3 vehicles. A smoke alarm went bad and the maintenance person fixed it almost as soon as we called. With the exception of the vehicle issue, the others were trivial, easily fixed or cleaned. This is truly a beautiful property, wonderful for families with babies through teenagers. Sunset from the balcony is AMAZING!!!!!!!

My family had the privilege of staying in cousins cabana this past week and could not have imagined a more beautiful place. The views are stunning, the condo has been upgraded and so beautifully, they perfected every detail. The beds are so comfortable, the entertainment options are top of the line, the kitchen is gorgeous and you can look out over the ocean while cooking! I cannot say enough about this place. The balcony furniture is so comfortable you can sit for hours, we watched dolphins almost every morning. We will absolutely be returning.

My husband, two girls ages 8 and 5, and inlaws, stayed at Cousins Cabana this year. Last year we stayed far away at Water sound, and even though it was lovely, this condo has all the perks you are looking for in a beach rental. First, it is a block from Rosemary and Alys Beach, so much closer. You can walk to ACME restaurant, and Wild Olives. Also, to Alys Beach to get a donut or coffee. Second, the security is super on top of it. It is a gated community, and you need a key card to enter. This unit is on the 2nd floor, and parking is easy. You then take the elevator up, and the unit is awesome. Very large, has a king Guest room right upon entry, awesomely big Master, with private dressing area, sitting area, jetted tub with pool view, shower. The kids room is so darling, twin beds, really cute clothing storage in the closet, and the bathroom is perfect. Make sure you push hard to turn off the water for the sink, it will drip, and kids do not pay attention sometimes. Large laundry, with washer and dryer. Kitchen has all of the amenities, coffee pot, pots, pans, pantry storage, and a large dining area the kids really enjoyed. Living room as large tv, Lazeboy seating, and the back deck is to die for. My father in law wanted to be directly on the beach. Boy we were. Right on the beach, and you can see the pool on the left. In fact, the grandparents could say hello to the kids in the pool without yelling. Again, security great, and really monitor the pool for folks not formally renting. You have to bring pool pass at all times. There are a lot of codes, but we put them down on a cheat sheet to carry with us. There are exactly 33 steps down to the beach. It is crowded, because of the public access, but you have private chairs with this unit already provided. We did arrive early, and the cleaning staff were awesome and super nice. Let us in early and did not have to do this. We will likely stay here again. Love love.

Cousins cabana review

  • 5 of 5

we cannot say enough wonderful things about this condominium. From the decor to the incredible views, this is where you want to stay on 30 A. This unit is smack dab on the beach. Absolutely stunning. You also have a side Poolview. Plenty of space, plenty of storage. Our children had darling twin beds and parents were happy in the master with a jet tub and private sitting area. The security is top notch and the beach guys handling the chairs are also extremely helpful. You are within walking distance to Rosemary or a short bike ride. We love to hear.
