About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy the best Rosemary Beach has to offer from this creatively designed little jewel, said by some of the locals to be the best-designed carriage house in Rosemary Beach. Located near the exotic Moroccan-style Coquina Pool on the Gulf side of Highway 30-A in Rosemary Beach. Just seven hundred feet to the beach - down the boardwalk to the Eastern Green, where you will find a deck with the Florida Panhandle’s best views of the Emerald Coast and its spectacular sunsets.

Experience the feeling of the West Indies and Carribean in this carriage house. It sleeps 2-4,and has a charming living area with a queen-size sleeper-sofa, a dining table for four to six, a complete kitchen, a full bath with tub & shower, washer/dryer closet, and three balconies. A full staircase leads up to a spacious loft which overlooks the living area and has a romantically luxurious Moroccan-vintage, and a queen-size bed.

The ground level has a two-car garage, an outdoor shower, and enclosed patio for outdoor grilling. Great dining in an ever-growing myriad of restaurants, with some in downtown Rosemary Beach.

NOTE: The main house is now available for rental.IT IS A SEPARATE RENTAL PROPERTY FROM THE CARRIAGE HOUSE DESCRIBED ON THIS PAGE. See VRBO Property #32812

About Lee Jones

Semi-retired couple, having careers as the executive assistant to the owner of a multinational architectural firm in Atlanta and a partner in a national commercial interior design firm. We enjoyed putting our experience to work designing and building our little piece of heaven in Rosemary Beach.

Lee Jones purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Lee Jones chose Florida

Having vacationed on both the Georgia coast and the Gulf coast, we chose to build here on the Emerald Coast, because of the incredible beaches and the enchanting character of Rosemary Beach.

What makes this cottage unique

The location of the property is the most-often mentioned comment from our guests. It is three doors north of the Coquina Pool, near the tennis courts, and south of 30-A.

Best VRBO experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked this carriage house for a few days in Rosemary Beach. We have vacationed in Destin for many years, but are trying something new due to the increased traffic and visitors to Destin. This is amazing! The carriage house itself was better than expected. It was very well furnished and my wife appreciated the little things like a hairdryer, body wash, paper towels, etc that often don't come with VRBO rentals. We traveled by airplane and it was nice to not have to take up suitcase space with these items. It was very clean and the size was perfect for the 2 of us. It was in a great location and we were easily about to walk to the beach, pool or the Pearl for a drink. I highly recommend this!

Lovely Carriage House Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 8 year-old daughter and I had a great stay this summer at Villa Belize! The finish out of the carriage house is impeccable and the owners have clearly attempted to furnish the carriage house with many of the incidentals that visitors will likely need. What a nice surprise to find ziplocks, foil, extra dish soap, toliet paper, etc when arriving. The kitchen is small but perfectly suited for a small family or couple at the beach. We really enjoyed the beautiful water, the beach access and the nearby restaurants. We did head over to Destin once for a sail with SmileNWave Sailing (Captain Pam is wonderful, great experience with a very playful pod of dolphins) but otherwise found everything we needed in Rosemary, Alys and Seacrest. Great VRBO experience, we highly recommend! Thanks, Judy and Lee.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

What a delight to see this charming carriage house upon arrival. Couldn't wait to get in and see our home-away-from-home for a long wedding weekend. Through the lovely patio, up the stairs, and into a delightful, serene, homey living/dining room which would serve us well for 4 days. The location couldn't be better, steps from the pool and beach access. The amenities were superb, down to the little bathroom extras the owner anticipated we might need. Everything was better than the pics. Lee was a perfect host. Rosemary Beach is a really fun destination with many wonderful restaurants, and lots of things to do.

If you rent this cottage, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Lee.

Oh, To Be Back At Villa Belize

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Judy and Lee's carriage house six times now, and love it more every time we visit. There's something very special about being able to stay in a beautiful house and walk or bike everywhere you want to go. The carriage house is the perfect size and very private. The furnishings are lovely and comfortable, and it's appointed with everything you need to have a relaxing vacation in a gorgeous spot. It's located steps from the Coquina Pool, and a short walk to the beach and town square. The restaurants in Rosemary Beach are outstanding. We're looking forward to our next visit...it won't be soon enough!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We definitely recommend this carriage house for many reasons. The house was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The bed was wonderful and the sheets were amazingly soft! The house was well appointed with just about everything one would need. The location was 30 seconds from the pool and a minute and 30 seconds from the beach! The owners were VERY easy to work with and very informative on home details plus so much more regarding Rosemary Beach. The nearby town square is full of quaint restaurants that are delish! We will definitely be returning for another wonderful week (or two!)

Best Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from vacation at Judy and Lee's and it was absolutely AMAZING! I was so skeptical never having been to Rosemary Beach and never having rented an individually owned property before, but my skepticism was in vain. Their carriage house is gorgeous and you will find everything you need there. I packed trash bags, dishwashing liquids, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, a hair dryer (anything I could think we might need) and it had already been provided. There was even eye make-up remover! If you've never been to Rosemary Beach, please give it a try. This house is just steps from the Coquina Pool (picturesque) and about a minute or 2 walk to the beach. The most difficult thing we encountered on our trip was simply leaving this Pleasantville by the sea. The food in Barrett Square is also unbeatable. Every restaurant we ate at was fabulous and within walking distance. The town grounds are immaculately kept...they even vacuum the grass! Seriously! We hope to return next year Judy and Lee, if you'll have us! We can't wait to be back in paradise.
