Why Owner/Manager chose Rosemary Beach
We discovered Rosemary Beach in 1998. There were only 5 homes built at the time. We really loved the idea of the southern hometown neighborhood feeling. The idea that you could sip lemonade on the front porch & visit with your neighbors, while living in an architecturally designed town based on some of our favorite places -the Caribbean, Charleston, SC & St. Augustine, FL. The main motivation was our kids! They could not wait to go bike riding to the beach, sailing, play croquet on the main greens and bring their friends to Rosemary Beach. It is easy to explore Destin and Panama City and is centrally located to some of the best dining, unique boutique shops, bike paths, and some of the most challenging golf courses that Florida has to offer. The completion of the NW Florida Beaches International Airport now makes it even more convenient to get here.

French Quarter style by the Beach
We loved this delightful home in Rosemary Beach. It stood out from the other homes which all quite similar in style. This one is colorful, with lots of doors and patios and fabulous tropical decor. The kitchen is very well stocked, and the my kids loved the Captain's beds. There is a lot of beach gear available, and several adult bikes in their shed. The weather was a bit chilly for the beach, but all the outdoor pools are heated. The Cabana pool is closest, but its heater was out the week we visited. We appreciated the outdoor fireplace, but you'll need to go to Publix to get firewood. We biked all around and everything is close-- except grocery stores. Georges in Alys Beach was our favorite restaurant. We were a family of 4 staying here and it was perfect. I think the bathrooms would feel cramped for a much larger party, and the Captain's beds are a bit difficult to climb out of from the wall side. It is a very warm and welcoming space, and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
Perfect Pre-Thanksgiving Getaway
We spent a few days at Rosemary Thyme just before Thanksgiving and it was just wonderful! The home was very clean, comfortable, well stocked and just as described (stunningly decorated, too, by the way!). We loved being able to walk and/or bike to so many wonderful shops, restaurants, pools/tennis, and, of course, the beach. We started each morning with a cup of coffee on one of several great porches and balconies, and ended each night with a sunset cocktail at The Pearl (highly recommend). We had 2 families (8 people) and had more than enough room. Loved dinners at the large dining room table, playing games in the living room, and enjoying the outdoor fireplace. So much to do, fun to be had, and such a nice break from "reality." Also, Rosemary Beach is so festive this time of year with all of the lights, decorations and holiday music! We very much recommend this great home and hope to return soon!
Lucky Lodewijks Beach Holiday
We came back in October 2018 for Fall Break on Sunday after hurricane Michael and were lucky enough to have Rosemary Beach / the pools and the beach to ourselves most of the time. Nice and quiet and the dreaded red-tide was blown away for the duration of our stay as well ... Rosemary Thyme was as expected, a great family friendly practical house in a great spot. We walked to the beach every day and watched the kids play for hours ... looking forward to coming again next year!
Rosemary Thyme is a beautiful home that we very much enjoyed. During some scheduling difficulties, the owners were very understanding and a delightful help as we worked through logistics. Both indoor and outdoor spaces were areas that you just didn't want to leave, and we can't wait to return!
Good location, not too far from beach; well-maintained property; availability of beach gear and bikes is convenient and a plus; abundant natural light with several useable & delightful outdoor spaces (side yard, screened porch, balcony).
We had a wonderful time and were relaxed with the kids walking around. Love this place and plan on going back next summer!! Keep it small and don't change a thing!
Rosemary Thyme is centrally located in the beautiful town of Rosemary Beach, yet still private. The home is a 30 second walk from the numerous shops, day spa and restaurants of N. Barrett Square. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach, a 2 minute walk to 2 of the 4 unique neighborhood pools and the other 2 are about 4 or 5 minutes away. There are 4 adult bikes and a bike rental shop nearby, which makes getting anywhere in town very easy. Check out Rosemary Beach online for more info. about the town's many amenities.
