Rosemary Beach is full of charm that draws visitors back again and again — which is just one reason why this beach neighborhood was named by CNN as one of America’s most romantic small towns. Come visit Rosemary Beach and let this destination sweep you off your feet.

One of South Walton’s planned New Urbanist communities, Rosemary Beach is an architectural treasure trove, boasting influences from the West Indies, New Orleans, Charleston and St. Augustine, among others.

The homes are interconnected by a discreet network of classic beach roads, pedestrian paths and boardwalks, which become even more charming at night basked in the soft flicker of gas-lit lanterns lined throughout the village.

Like most Traditional Neighborhood Developments (TNDs), the best way to explore Rosemary Beach’s 107 acres is on foot (or on a beach cruiser). Wood-plank pathways meander through the town’s striking architecture, often revealing hidden amenities such as playgrounds, bubbling fountains, tennis courts or one of the community’s several cosmopolitan swimming pools. Meander your way through until you find the town’s 2,500 feet of glorious white sand beach.
Rosemary Beach Shopping
The Merchants of Rosemary Beach
Referred to as “The Long Green,” the pleasant grassy stretch along Scenic Highway 30-A is frequently host to a variety of outdoor festivals, markets, concerts and charity events. The popular farmers and crafts markets feature open-air booths filled with delicious food, paintings, pottery, jewelry, stained glass, wood carvings and other handcrafted items.

Encompassing the lush greens is the community’s town center where The Merchants of Rosemary Beach, a wonderful collection of quaint shops, boutiques and restaurants, are located. Grab a good read from Hidden Lantern Book Store and then treat yourself to a drink from Amavida Coffee where you can also shop for 30A Gear. Soon enough, you’ll stumble upon that idyllic hidden park bench in the shade, where your afternoon will just kinda melt away.

5/5 Excellent

WOW!
A truly gem of a place to stay. Kellie was so wonderful and helpful. This was our first time going to the beach and we had the very best time. This is a true find and we can’t wait to return next year.

5/5 Excellent

Very good place to stay
Thank you so much. I had a great stay.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful spot close to the beach
Nice dining and bar area to gather and enjoy family time. Short walk to the beach. Nice brunch spots that are also walking distance. The house is older with no central AC (small units in each area) but has been maintained and decorated well.

1/5 Terrible

The Windermere Nightmare of 2020
I'll be brief, as Kellie rarely is. We booked this home for 10 days April 9-19, 2020. Unfortunately due to Covid we were LEGALLY not allowed to travel to the home for our stay as per the state of FL. Refunds were denied by Kellie multiple times. Kellie then booked the house for the rest of the summer, and somehow booked our Spring Break 2021 a year in advance. To accommodate us and the Premium pricing for Spring Break we paid her, we were forced to spend a very expensive holiday in off season. Kellie agreed we could split our stay into two trips. We booked the home for Thanksgiving 2021 for 7 of the 12 days she owed us. Two days before we are due to arrive, she emails us saying that we can still go, but her septic tank is "Not working" - and "We may have to limit our dishwashing and washing machine use" Not words you want to hear the week of Thanksgiving! The house itself only has ceilings of 7 ft tall max, and they are literally falling out in multiple rooms. The septic system apparently makes the water smell like rotten eggs. (We have stayed in 30A for 15 years, this is not normal.) The master bath tub/shower - the only one you can actual use and turn around in, is falling into the ground. To cap off the experience, she then insisted we send her an additional deposit on PayPal (outside the VRBO platform) before we could go for Thanksgiving. Kellie, wrote us on Nov. 30th she would be returning our deposit as the house was left in excellent condition. It is Dec 30th - and she is MIA, and VRBO has no recourse for our deposit OR the remaining 5 days on our vacation stay. VRBO relayed to us we would be receiving pictures to show "damages" we made to the home, which to date we have not received. The house is falling apart, and the only thing new are the couches, so we are very curious as to what she is claiming we damaged. Think twice about VRBO home rentals- and definitely don't stay here! VRBO does nothing to help the renters in a situation like this! Please be aware when renting.
