The calendar is always kept current. It is not my intention to waste your time or bait and switch. If your desired dates show as available, they are.

It is our goal to make your vacation in Rosemary Beach a fantastic experience. We have been renting our home In Rosemary for over 18 years and we know that communication and attention to detail are what separates the good from the great.

You will be delighted with this gorgeous SOUTH of 30-A home located at 89 Hopetown Lane. See map. We are just 5 houses from the Gulf on the preferred south or beach side of 30-A.

The front of the house faces one of Rosemary's charming pedestrian wooden boardwalks, (walkover F.) Out the front door and in @150 steps, you are at the Gulf.

Behind Amsler Cottage is downtown Rosemary and The Pearl, Rosemary's beautiful inn. There is easy access to the shops, the restaurants, and the hustle and bustle of town activity . We are very near the town center, the Western Green and the Beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

4 BEDROOMS/ 5 FULL BATHROOMS plus private outdoor shower with hot water.

First Floor Bedroom, Queen Bed, double trough sink, shower, TV

Second Floor Bedroom, King Bed, Double sink , shower, TV, porch

Second Floor Bedroom, Queen bed, tub/shower combo, TV, porch

Second Floor Bunkroom, 4 twin beds, tub/shower combo

There is an additional full bathroom on the first floor plus an outdoor shower with hot water for washing off sand.


Professionally decorated, the furnishings strike a perfect balance between comfort and elegance. Unique lighting fixtures, luxurious fabrics and elegant furnishings abound with hardwood floors, mahogany French doors and custom finishes throughout. There are 3 fully furnished porches and an enclosed courtyard to enjoy as well.

The first floor is open with three sets of mahogany French doors facing the boardwalk. Watch as pedestrians stroll down the boardwalk to the beach while dining, watching TV or reading in front of the gas fireplace.

There are 5 flat screen TVs in the house. Movies and tv shows can be streamed through Netflix and there is HBO as well. Slipcovers and sea grass rugs create an upscale yet comfortable atmosphere.


The fully equipped gourmet kitchen features granite and tumbled marble finishes, Bosch dishwasher, gas burners, a separate beverage fridge and custom made cabinetry. Seating for 8 at the dining table as well as counter top seating for 2.

Also on the first floor is a guestroom with a queen bed for those that prefer not to climb stairs. Crisp linens dress the bed and there is a beautiful full en suite bath.Travertine tiles, a trough sink and a rain head shower make this bathroom a true spa experience.

There is an additional interior full bath on the first floor for everyone,( the fifth one), which has a unique connecting indoor-outdoor shower. The laundry is also located on the first floor.


The second floor has 3 true bedrooms, all with private en suite baths. No beds/bunks are built into the hallways and all beds are real beds, i.e. no roll away, sofa beds or futons. All beds are supplied with high quality mattresses and linens.

The master suite holds a romantic king size bed.French doors lead out onto a porch with Gulf views and comfortable furniture. The large master bath has unique double custom made sinks, travertine floors and a large shower.

The bunk room has 4 individual custom built extra long twin beds and an en suite bath with tub and shower. Each bunk has its own light and curtains that can be drawn for privacy. It is ideally suited for kids but we have had many happy adults sleep there as well.

The fourth guest room has a beautiful white antique queen bed and mahogany french doors that lead to a large screened- in porch. The porch is equipped with a custom made hanging swing bed for naps and another area to just read and relax. This room also has an en suite bath with tub and shower.


Up a spiral staircase to the third floor is an extra space for those occasional rainy days. Featuring a built in daybed, a flat screen tv, and a DVD/VCR, it is a great space for kids to play or a private retreat for an afternoon nap. Books, games and children's movies are provided for your enjoyment.


The back courtyard of our cottage is walled and has a big built in natural gas grill, comfortable seating for 10 at a custom made table and a lovely fountain.

There is no carriage house on property which is a huge plus. Note: Many of Rosemary Beach homes have a garage/carriage house that is built behind or adjacent to the main one. Unless you rent both structures, parking availability, the size of the outdoor space as well as privacy may be affected. No sharing with strangers here as the outdoor space at this home is yours alone to grill, dine and enjoy.

We have included the floor plans in the photo section. Our guests' comfort is our priority and we want to make sure that the layout works for your needs.

Overseen by 30A Cottages and Concierge, guests will experience in-house check in and first class service from housekeeping to restaurant and activity reservations. High grade sheets and towels as well as organic bath and toiletries are provided. Most importantly, should you need or want anything, a staff member will be on hand to insure you are taken care of.

The rental rates for Amsler Cottage are arrived at by undercutting the prices of the homes around us. Our goal is to provide an excellent value by cutting out high commission rates to a management company while still providing the convenience of a concierge service. There is no add on 'processing fee' , or ‘ amenity fee’. I don’t appreciate being upcharged at the end of the process and assume noone else likes it either!


There are 4 beautiful community pools in Rosemary Beach open to owners and guests. Closest to us are the Barbados and Coquina Pools, each @ a 5 minute walk. The current access codes will be provided prior to arrival.

Both the tennis and fitness center are available for a fee. (Even homeowners are required to pay for usage of these amenities).


There are 2 available spaces on Hopetown Lane. One is in an offstreet arbor and the other is on the lane, both directly behind the house.


Getting around Rosemary by walking or by bike is most common.

Four adult beach cruisers are included with the house. Baskets and locks provided as well. Additional bikes can be easily rented.

A 50% deposit is due at time of booking. Remaining balance is due 60 days prior to arrival. A full refund less $300 processing fee is guaranteed if reservation is cancelled outside of 60 days. If cancelled inside 60 days, adeposits will be forefeited

Wonderful stay!    Sep 25, 2018

Amsler Cottage was perfect for our family of seven. We loved being so close to the walkover! The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and so comfortable. An added bonus were the bicycles....we loved riding around town with our kids!

Best Location in Perfect Vacation Spot!    Sep 10, 2018

We loved our stay at Amsler cottage! When we arrived we felt right at home. The house was perfect for our family (us, our two kids and my parents). My kids especially loved the "extra floor" and spent time up there reading, playing, and watching movies. We were easily able to get to the beach with our two toddlers and gear as well as walk around and shop. John and Susan walked us through everything (beach chair setups, dining recommendations, etc) and made our first trip to Rosemary such a success! Tropical Storm Gordon was moving through during our time there and Susan even checked in with us and gave us additional rainy day recommendations. I can't say enough good things about Amsler Cottage or Rosemary Beach.

Expertly Decorated, Superbly Located, Beautifully Managed    Sep 02, 2018

We were thoroughly enchanted by this special slice of gulfside RB, a lovely, welcoming home featuring the camaraderie of front porch life and a well-appointed living/dining/kitchen area coupled with the privacy of bedrooms w/ ensuite baths and easy meandering to beach or bar.

It is thoughtful, well-loved and reflects a unique level of personalized comfort. Another plus, the owner communicates directly with her renters... while the management company is nearby to assist if necessary.

All this adds up to a five star experience in a five star home.

We would rent it again - in a split second.

Tammy R.

Perfect location and accommodations    Aug 11, 2018

We loved everything about Amsler Cottage. Can not beat the location (close to beach and even closer to town square - think Sugar Shack). We would definitely consider renting again (which we typically do not do). Owners were hospitable and easy to work with. Everything was fantastic!

Bob G.

Fabulous !!    Aug 04, 2018

This was our family's 10th trip in a row to Rosemary Beach. Over this time period, we have stayed in 6 different houses all located south of 30A. The Amsler Cottage was a special treat! It was an ideal location and the accommodations were just perfect for our family. The house was only a few steps from the Sugar Shak (a daily visit) and a short walk to the beach. The outside deck shower allowed us to wash off all the evidence that we had been to the beach. The bunk beds in the "kids room" worked well for our 4 grandchildren. We especially liked the outdoor dining area with the soothing waterfall, where we enjoyed all of our evening meals. Susan, the owner, was easily accessible before and after we arrived. She attended to every detail to make sure our stay was truly fabulous. We found the house beautifully decorated with a very open feeling. We would definitely stay in the Amsler Cottage next Summer!

Wonderful vacation!    Jul 29, 2018

Amsler cottage was great for our multi-generational family! The location is amazing!

Paradise!    Jul 02, 2018

This home was perfect for a 3 generation family of 10! Close to the beach as well as downtown. Very well equipped and maintained.

Amsler Cottage and Rosemary Beach - our family's happy place!!    Jun 27, 2018

Amsler Cottage and Rosemary Beach are always a delight. We have just completed our third stay at Amsler Cottage, and we are never disappointed! Susan is so accommodating and eager to make your vacation the best it can be. Amsler Cottage will continue to be part of my family's tradition.

Cheri S.

The Best!    Jun 14, 2018

Loved this home. It has the feel of a true beach cottage. Can literally walk to the beach in 2 minutes. Loved being able to come and go from the beach to the house with ease. Also just one block from the town center, which we walked to eat dinner every night.

The home was truly comfortable and fit the needs of our family perfect. The biggest plus was how accommodating the Amsler's were in making sure we had every thing we needed-before, during and after the trip.

We will return.

Marjorie M

Lovely Home!    May 29, 2018

This was a special trip for us. For the first time in a few years both adult kids could join us, including our new grandchild! The Amsler Cottage fit our needs perfectly. It is a well- appointed, lovely home. We especially enjoyed the patio and grill.

Joan C.

Wonderful and relaxing    Apr 16, 2018

Just returned from a wonderful vacation in Rosemary Beach at the Amsler Cottage. The house was in a perfect location! We could walk to the beach and many restaurants very easily. The house had everything we needed and was a perfect spot for relaxing. Susan was a gem, always available for answering questions and making our planing and staying effortless. Would love to return.

Meredith S.

beautiful and comfortable house close to the beach    Apr 10, 2018

We really enjoyed our stay at Amsler Cottage. The house was very well located close to the beach and the town shops. The house itself was very comfortable and nicely decorated. We appreciated the bikes. I would definitely stay here again.

Elisabeth H.

Beautiful and comfortable Cottage. The perfect location to be close to Beach and all activities!    Mar 31, 2018

This Cottage is absolutely stunning! Was very comfortable for our family and since we have little ones, it was a super close walk to all shopping, restaurants, and the beach. After exploring the entire area, we all agreed it could not have been in a better location for those visiting with little children.

Aaron C.

Well kept and great location    Mar 24, 2018

Great price point for quality of home and proximity to the beach.

Karen M.

It was absolutely perfect!!!!    Jan 06, 2018

We could NOT be more pleased! We have stayed many places in Rosemary. Staying at the Amsler Cottage has been literally the best experience. Such attention to detail and so much helpful information from Susan (owner). We would LOVE to stay there again!!!!

Dana L.

Wonderful home!    Jan 01, 2018

This home is beautiful, comfortable and well maintained. We went there for Christmas and felt right at home. It is next to the town center so we enjoyed walking over there for coffee, pizza or to stroll along the shops. The beach was just a short stroll and was so nice even though it was winter. I would definitely come here again!

Linda J.

The nicest rental house in Rosemary Beach    Nov 29, 2017

This is our second year to stay in Amsler Cottage for Thanksgiving week. We love it! It suits our needs perfectly! The location is unbeatable. Walk a short block one direction and you are on the beach. Walk opposite direction and you are in the center of town. The house is beautifully decorated. Its bedrooms and in suite bathrooms allow everyone to have privacy. The kitchen/living room has space for people to enjoy being together. The front porch is a good place to people watch as people stroll by on bicycles or walk to the beach. The backyard has a barbecue pit and an outdoor dining area. It is ideal for our yearly family vacation, but couples, or a girl trip would enjoy it ,too. As the time for our trip neared, the owner sent emails with information on activities that we might enjoy during our stay. I recommend this house highly.

joy b.

Beautiful!!!    Oct 18, 2017

Gorgeous property and extremely clean and well kept! Loved everything about the home!

Heather M.

Beautifully appointed home just steps from the beach!    Sep 26, 2017

Amazing home, that our family enjoyed beyond measure! Top notch amenities, decor, and proximity to the ocean was a dream. Highly recommend!

Tyler A.

Awesome House!    Sep 07, 2017

This is a great house to sleep 10 or more people with kids. Walk in big open area off front porch that provides a great space for 10 or more to hang comfortably. Rooms and baths a great size. Overall we loved it! Very close to the beach south of 30A and one block off the restaurants making it very easy to move 10+ people around...

Julie G.

Beautiful home and amazing host    Jul 17, 2017

My husband, 2 kids and I enjoyed this beautiful home for two weeks this summer. It was wonderful! My inlaws joined us for several days as well and loved the downstairs guestroom.

Before arriving, I was a bit concerned that it was not close enough to the beach as I am used to staying right on the beach, but once there, i discovered it is VERY close. In fact, because the house is right on the walk way, it was quicker to get to the beach than the house we stayed at last year which was overlooking the beach.

My kids absolutely LOVED the bunk room. It has so many wonderful "secret" spots for them to store stuff and then they were able to close their little curtains and have a private spot to sleep.

The indoor/outdoor shower was also SO nice for getting the kids cleaned up after the beach.

Lastly, I have to say that Susan (the owner) was SO responsive to me both before and during my stay. She made sure I had critical information in advance such as information about renting beach chairs, bikes, etc and kept up with my during my entire stay.

Definitely a 5 star home in my opinion!

Margaret H.

A Slice of Heaven!    Jul 03, 2017

Amsler Cottage is beautiful but even more important, it's incredbily comfortable and functional for 10 people. Our group included 5 kids ranging in age from 2 - 12, so we clearly needed a home that was designed to accommodate the different needs of adults and kids and this house does it well! Location near the beach and the downtown, separate bathrooms for each bedroom, outdoor shower, lights and nooks in the bunk beds, parking for 2 cars (only after staying in Rosemary Beach will you fully appreciate this little detail) all made it Amsler Cottage a perfect choice. The owner is quicky accessible and clearly takes great pride in keeping the property in the best condition. Can't wait until we get to return!!!!

Family Vacay    Jun 13, 2017

What a lovely home! Amazing location and floor plan, bunk room is so cozy for the kids! Owner made sure our stay was perfect. Would recommend this great home. Thank you for allowing us to stay there.

Dana S.

Ideal Location and a Beautiful Home!    May 28, 2017

We had a fabulous week in Rosemary Beach! This is our third summer staying in Rosemary Beach (5th on 30A) and Amsler Cottage far exceeded our previous rental experiences. The house was beautiful, the layout was open/spacious and ideal for small or larger groups, but seriously -- the location truly sets this house apart from others. We were a super quick walk down a quaint walkway to the beach, a block from downtown, and a few blocks from our favorite RB pool. The only reason I would advise to avoid this house, is because I don't want it to be booked next season when our family plans our already-anticipated return! :) Thank you Susan and John for a wonderful stay in your home -- and for checking in on us during the week to ensure our stay was enjoyable!

Brett C.

Fantastic Rosemary Beach house!    May 26, 2017

Our family loved Amsler Cottage. The location to the town, restaurant, pools, and beach could not be more perfect. The layout and furnishings of the house are extremely well done. The Amsler's are pros and have thought of everything. We'll 100% be booking again. Thanks Susan and Jon for sharing your home with us!

Colleen W.

The property was beautiful. A gorgeous, warm, comfortable home.    May 16, 2017

We loved everything about our cottage. Rosemary has great restaurants, but we usually cooked at the cottage. With the lovely kitchen, grill and patio, there was no need to wait somewhere for a table for 10. Ours was a college reunion and the house could not have been more perfect for a group of 10 women. From the time of our (late) arrival, when we walked onto a patio with the light string under the umbrella twinkling, and the sound of music playing inside the house, it felt like we were guests of an invisible, but very gracious hostess. We would all highly recommend Amsler Cottage.

Kristin H.

Beautiful home with everything you need! Best location to both restaurants, shopping, and beach!!    May 04, 2017

Loved our stay and Susan was great to work with and very accommodating!!

Best Vacation Ever    Apr 26, 2017

Luxurious accomodations in a picture perfect town. House was really lovely with lots of little touches to make it feel special. Location ideal for access to beach and town. LOVED that it was right on a pedestrian Boardwalk. Last time we stayed in Rosemary, we were on a street with cars going by. This was so much better with all our kids running in and out. We can not think of one thing that would have made it any better. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. We will be back.

Suzanne P.

Wonderful    Apr 11, 2017

5 adults and 2 children enjoyed everything about this wonderful house! It is gorgeous and provided plenty of space inside and the outdoor decks and porches fit our needs perfectly. It is decorated beautifully. It is right on the boardwalk to the beach. It took maybe 5 minutes to get to the beach. Our weather was perfect! Susan was so easy to work with. We would definitely stay at the AMSLER COTTAGE again. The only downside comments would be the furniture is showing some wear and the walls/woodwork could use a fresh coat of paint is some areas, BUT with constant renters because of the beauty and location, this is to be expected and it would not keep us from renting from Susan again! We needed assistance once and this was immediately taken care of by the staff. GREAT JOB SUSAN. Thanks for sharing your cottage and for the beach bag!

Sharon G.

Wonderful!    Apr 05, 2017

Beautiful house that exceeded our expectations. Well-located, spotlessly clean, and comfortable beds. One of the best houses we have ever rented!

Jonathan & Susan A.

Best vacation rental ever!    Feb 15, 2017

Just perfect. Our 4th time renting at Rosemary and we will never stay anywhere else again.

Patricia K.

We loved the property! Convenient to Beach and town square.    Jan 06, 2017

Lovely decor and privacy for multi- or large family vacation. All amenities were available and appreciated the local insight on restaurants from owners. Very quiet at Christmas! Probably not so much in peak season though.

Kristina R.

A Perfect Vacation Home!    Jan 01, 2017

Amsler Cottage is a wonderful beach home! The house is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. It also has the perfect location - - a short stroll to the beach and to dining and shopping! It is truly a treasure!

Linda J.

The week we spent during the Thanksgiving holidays at Amsler Cottage was wonderful.    Nov 28, 2016

This was the fith year we rented at Rosemary Beach, and although we were always satisfied with other houses, Amsler Cottage was our favorite. The layout was perfect for grandparents and a family of four with two preteens. We each had a spot for privacy in our bedrooms or on the porches. The house is beautifully decorated and not at all "shopworn ". There were many extras, two nice bikes, beach chairs, a well equipped kitchen, etc. Susan was thoughtful to send us events around Rosemary for the week. I felt like she was a friend! I think anyone who decides to stay at Amsler Cottage would be very satisfied.

Absolutely Beautiful!    Oct 19, 2016

Our favorite vacation home. Incredible location, beautiful and clean!!

Doesn't Get Better Than This!!    Sep 19, 2016

We are a group of old college/sorority sisters who had a long get away weekend to celebrate our 50th birthdays!! I can't say enough about this house. It's BEAUTIFULLY decorated and extremely comfortable! All needs and wants were met here!! Efficiency was top-notch. I am a frequent VRBO renter. I've never worked with an owner as wonderful as Susan! She made me feel like a beloved family member! We inadvertently left a few personal items behind. Susan immediately contacted me with arrangements for return. I've NEVER had this happen before! Thank you, Susan, for sharing your amazing home! We WILL be back!!

Mary Anne L.

We love it all- the house, the area and the beach!!    Aug 10, 2016

We will definitely be back!!

Truly Caring Homeowners who have a lovely beach home that is perfectly located!!    Jul 20, 2016

Susan is the most caring and thoughtful hostess! Even though she wasn't there she made us feel so welcome and she genuinely cares about her guests and wants to make sure they are happy and having an enjoyable time! Our family of 10 had such a fabulous time!! The home was beautifully decorated with all the conveniences anyone could ask for and the location was perfect -with 2 toddlers it was an important for us to stay in a home that was close to the beach! And this was spot on!! We will definitely be repeat guests! Our only complaint - wishing our visit was longer than a week! Everyone misses Amsler Cottage!!

Debi R.

Amazing, spacious home! Perfect beach home steps away from beach!    Jul 06, 2016

Our second year to stay at this beautiful home just steps away from the beach! The home is beautifully decorated and Susan provides every amenity needed. Extremely close to Main Street and The Pearl (located directly behind the house). Swing on the front porch, swing on the upstairs porch, and we ALL used the attached outdoor shower. Very nice to have two bicycles to ride for the entire week! Love love this home in Rosemary Beach!❤️

Susan M.

Happy Place    May 18, 2016

Amsler Cottage is a great house close to the beach. The owners are very accommodating and the house is a great layout for a family. We are returning customers, so that should say it all! Thank you Amsler Cottage!

Shannon R.

Great home for multiple families    Apr 26, 2016

This was our 3rd stay in Rosemary but our first at Amsler Cottage. We traveled with extended family - for a total of 6 adults and 3 children - and the house managed it all! It's very conveniently located near the western green and the center of town. You can walk to the restaurants and shops in just minutes. The kids loved the bunk room, and each bedroom has access to a private bathroom, which was especially great. The home came outfitted with everything we needed, a couple of bikes (we rented more as well), 4 beach chairs, sand toys, plenty of kitchen equipment and storage, no shortage of towels, and plenty of space to unpack. Otherwise, it had everything. It was really convenient that the kitchen was stocked with plastic plates and cups and a few toddler sized utensils. We did purchase some tin foil, plastic baggies, and tupperware for the nights we cooked at home - these were helpful to have on hand, and the home didn't come with any. There were even a few toys, games and movies for the kids - which was nice. The home is close to a couple different walkovers, and not too far (maybe 3 blocks) from the nearest walkover with a ramp. The closest pool is probably a 5 minute walk. You are right behind the Pearl Hotel, and a couple nights we heard their live music on the house patio. This was great for the adults, but you couldn't hear it inside (and didn't disturb bedtime, which is key). Parking was convenient, with two spots on the property, so it was never a hassle to trek to your car. We will absolutely be back next spring and can't wait to return!

Lovely Home and Great Location    Mar 28, 2016

We rent homes at Rosemary every year. This is one of the best homes we have rented. The layout was perfect! We had 4 teenage girls who loved the bunk room. The other bedrooms were very comfortable too. The screen porches off the bedrooms were the perfect spot to relax. This house has a large patio out back with a great grill to cook out on. You can't beat the location, it's so close to the beach. We were warned about the construction at the hotel by the owner but it was never a problem. It's almost finished and we never heard a sound. The owner was so easy to work with and super helpful. Everytime I asked a question, she was quick to respond. She was available before and during our trip. I will definitely rent this house again!

Joyce P.

Fabulous House, highly recommended    Nov 03, 2015

Your home is absolutely beautiful and your attention to detail surpasses any rental I have ever been in......not sure if u were the decorator but if u were u r very talented. We were there for a wedding so people were staying all over Rosemary but everyone that came to visit us wanted to know how I found this adorable house....they too fell in love with it!!!

Loved rosemary, my car actually never left the house after my one trip to the store. We walked everywhere r rode bikes, enjoyed the restaurants and of course the roof top bar at the pearl!!! Hope to make a return trip to your house one day!!! We hated to leave.

Great Stay, definitely recommend!    Oct 02, 2015

We really enjoyed the location, and the furnishings and layout was perfect. We had a large group, but didnt feel cramped. Kitchen was more than adequate, porches were a real bonus. About the only knock we could give this house is the pillows were a little thin/old? It was seriously amazing though, and has all of my friends that had never experienced the Gulf Coast talking about moving! Would absolutely rent Amsler again if we travel with a large group.

World class experience    Sep 28, 2015

Amsler Cottage was the best choice for a 3 generation family vacation. The cottage is in perfect location so everyone could enjoy their desired activities within a short walk-- beach, pool, shopping, or simply relaxing. Plenty of room for all. Local dining options offer great variety. Quick access to Panama City grocery stores allowed us to cook nice family meals. Post Labor Day season had perfect weather and smaller crowds. It was very comfortable and relaxing. Check-in and out was smooth and efficient. Will be back again!

Fantastic Home    Jun 23, 2015

This is a fabulous home in a perfect location. The owners could not be nicer. Our family had a wonderful time again. This was our second time renting this home and we will be back again.

Our Favorite Vacation    Jun 16, 2015

We were looking forward to our second visit to Rosemary Beach, bringing along some friend who had never visited the area. My husband and I were thrilled when we entered Amsler Cottage. So beautifully decorated, a quick walk to beach, and and a few steps to the many quaint town shops and restaurants. Our friends were so impressed with the accommodations, they are already planning next year's visit. I cannot recommend Amsler Cottage enough. Spacious, comfortable, clean, and beautiful!!

Family Vacation Time    May 14, 2015

We were looking for a family vacation site that would accommodate 7 adults and 3 children under the age of 3 - and we certainly found a jewel in Amsler Cottage. It is more than just a cottage. It is a well designed and thoughtfully decorated home. The master bedroom has a wonderful balcony with comfortable furniture for relaxing. Another upstairs bedroom had a balcony just as great with a day bed swing for relaxing. There was a winding staircase that led to a reading room. The kitchen provided all the things we needed for cooking at home. There was a great enclosed courtyard perfect for small children to play so you did not have to worry about them wandering off. It was a short walk to the beach - our 3 year old had no trouble at all. At the end of the week one of our daughters-in-law commented that this spot was one of the best vacations she had ever had. We all agreed with her. The Amslers are very responsive with answers to questions. We had a wonderful time, and will be back in the future.

There is nothing missing from this house..    Mar 25, 2015

We research and rent a lot of beach homes around the Emerald Coast and as far south as St. George Island, and each time we are a little anxious prior to arrival that our selection will be what we hoped and anticipated. This home surpassed expectations and is exactly how it's described on the website. No hidden "i gotcha ya!" and even more amenities than are described. Our teenagers wanted to skip the slopes and enjoy the beach where they could walk to the action -- Rosemary Beach delivered.

I Almost didn't write this review...    Mar 19, 2015

For purely selfish reasons, I almost didn't write this review. Once everyone finds out about how wonderful this vacation home is, it may not be available next year for our week at the beach. I'd like to keep this a secret, but the owners are so gracious, we can't do that.

This Rosemary Beach home was absolutely gorgeous! There was not one single thing lacking. And the newly completed addition was just stunning - I can't wait to incorporate some ideas into my pool house this year. The pictures do not do this home justice. And it is just as comfortable as it is elegant! Love, love, love the HUGE hanging mirror in the new guest bath. And the sleeping porch was my daughter's favorite place to read in the afternoon. Overall, the floor plan was perfect for our family's needs. I could go on and on about all the details we enjoyed: the mercury glass lamps, the Jenn-Aire range, the built-in high-end appliances, the living room sconces, the beautiful stairway, the peaceful courtyard, the large built-in grill, the 3rd floor getaway, the available beach chairs, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. :). And so close to the beach, we often strolled over several times a day to look at our sand castles. The view of the ocean sunset from the balcony was a favorite for me.

We were so fortunate to find and rent this lovely beach home. We look forward to returning next year, and will be sure to book early.

A Birthday Reunion    Sep 06, 2014

My husband was having a big birthday and we brought our children to Rosemary Beach and Amsler Cottage. We had a variety of houses to choose from and am I glad that we chose this one! It's clean, warm, professionally decorated and plenty of room . The kids loved the bunk room. I loved the porch swing . The grill is great - and your steps away from the beach AND Sugar Shack. What more can one ask for? Also, the owner is gracious and accommodating. I recommend Amsler Cottage.


Our "go to" house in Rosemary    Sep 05, 2014

We have stayed at Amsler Cottage 4 times now over the last few years. We love the location of it, the fact that you can just walk down the boardwalk a few yards to the beach. We have small children and it was just a skip back and forth with the baby. There is enough room for everyone to feel a great sense of privacy. The kids love the small loft upstairs and we like it too because we can still hear what is going on. The downstairs floor plan works so nicely, that we are using some of the measurements in the construction of our new home in Louisiana. The rates are very reasonable for the amount of house that comes with it. Susan is wonderful to deal with and we look forward to many years of Rosemary vacations to come!!!

Great vacation    Aug 18, 2014

Wonderful house, pictures don't do it justice. The AC had an issue and someone was there to fix it in under an hour. Close to the beach and centrally located. Overall a great experience.

Amsler Cottage-great value    Aug 09, 2014

The house is clean, comfortable and close to the beach. It's a perfect get away for families with small children. The house is set up so every room is comfortable and the common area is spacious. The owners are delightful to work with and very involved. This was our second year to stay in Amsler House and we would highly recommend.

Another Great Experience!    Jun 17, 2014

Just got back from another wonderful stay at the Amsler Cottage! It seems every time we return, the owners have improved the property with thoughtful touches like the new trellis in the back, huge stainless steel gas grill, and new outdoor furniture. We also appreciate all of the top of the line appliances, cookware, and serving pieces. We love being so close to the town, beach and Western Green. Our kids walked to the Sugar Shak on their own! Perfect week at the beach!

Perfect!!    Sep 17, 2013

Loved this cottage & its location! We were a group of worn-out mommies that were able to completely refresh & recharge over our long weekend. Coming into a beautifully decorated cottage where everything was beautiful & clean & comfy was a gift. Thank you!!


Perfect in Every Way!    Dec 12, 2012

Beautifully decorated and amply supplied! Owner was great to work with!


Amsler cottage    Dec 01, 2012

My family and I spent Thanksgiving at Amsler Cottage. There were 6 adults and 2 children. We thoroughly enjoyed this cottage. Perfect size, perfect location just steps from beach and steps

from town. The cottage is decorated beautifully. The property was very clean and well-maintened.

The activities, attractions, and restaurants were within minutes of cottage. I highly recommend this cottage for any family. Very enjoyable.


Happy visitor from CT    Aug 07, 2012

My concern going into this was that staying in someone else's home would not allow me to feel comfortable. Very soon after arriving it did not take long for me to feel quite comfortable. Really a great Home and we treated it better than our own. The property has everything you'd want. And I don't have enough room to write about how much my entire family enjoyed the location and atmosphere at Rosemary Beach. My wife and I certainly created great memories for each of our 4 children. Our Canon camera got a great workout!!

Elegant Beauty - 40 Steps From the Ocean..    Mar 22, 2012

Even though we live in Georgia, we were never really big fans of Florida beaches. The Amsler cottage at Rosemary Beach completely changed our outlook. A beautifully appointed home created by someone who clearly knows interior design, we found the cottage unbelievably relaxing with everything we needed. Spotlessly clean and with all the amenities, the property is steps from the Rosemary Town Center with all its restaurants and shops and you can hear the ocean from any window. We especially enjoyed the private courtyard for meals with friends as well as access to the multiple pools and workout facilities within the compound. You can't help but relax here. Anyone can go to a beach. Amsler Cottage at Rosemary is something special. It's now a regular part of our annual getaway plan. Enjoy!


Beautiful vacation spot    May 17, 2011

Peaceful vacation destination. Easy walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, and pools.

We have stayed at many different Rosemary Beach homes over the years and find the layout of the Amsler's Cottage to be the most comfortable and most convenient. We have also found it to be the most reasonably priced for the location.

The decor is simply elegant and comfortable.

Our kids loved the 3rd floor TV/playroom and our parents loved the first floor bedroom and bath, no stairs to climb.

The porch swing is a wonderful place to relax and read and the back patio is the perfect place for family dinners and socializing with friends.

An outdoor shower is a special bonus when coming in from the beach.

With a house full of family we always felt like we had plenty of room to spread out and privacy.

Having the concierge service provide bikes, and other amenities were very helpful.

Perfect Vacation Destination    Mar 26, 2010

My family and I have stayed in the Amsler Cottage several times over the years and our experience gets better with every visit! The owners seem to add something special every time we go, like new furniture, nice tableware, and flat screen TVs! The house is decorated beautifully and great for families with young children or teenagers. We especially enjoyed dinners outside in the private patio, sitting around the pretty teak table. The location is ideal- just a very short walk to the beautiful beach, or the pools, or to the center of town, with its cute shops and restaurants. Every evening we would walk to the beach to see the unbelievable sunsets, and then return later to stare at the stars. Wonderful vacation no matter what time of the year... can't wait to go back!
