About the property

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 / 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 gate to the Gulf.

Behind Amsler Cottage is downtown Rosemary and The Pearl, Rosemary's 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 the

outdoor shower.


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. Custom made 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 provides room for 10.

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 open 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.

A 50% deposit is due at time of booking. Remaining balance is due 60 days prior to arrival. A full refund less $300 is guaranteed if reservation is cancelled outside of 60 days.

About Susan Amsler

We are a family of four and we live in Atlanta. We purchased this lot in Rosemary Beach in 1998 so that our two boys would have a place to play in the sugar white sand. Said two boys are now grown but still love playing in the sand. We worked with an architect to design a house that would be both beautiful as well as practical. I am an interior designer and really enjoyed the process of decorating this home.

Susan Amsler purchased this house in 1998

Why Susan Amsler chose Rosemary Beach

We had rented in Seaside, (too crowded), Sandestin,(too cheesy) and Sea Grove, (not enough going on). We purchased a lot so early, ( 1998), that we were able to buy directly on a boardwalk, very close to the gulf and the town center. We were in the right place at the right time , for once!

What makes this house unique

Taking naps on the swing bed, watching people stroll up and down the boardwalk, enjoying the gulf view off the second story porch, getting ice cream at the very nearby sugar shak. We also employ a local concierge/maintenance service that can provide our guests with anything they might need or want. The benefits of dealing with an actual owner combined with an onsite 24 hour maintenance and housekeeping service is the best of both worlds!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just about the most perfect beach house we have ever stayed in. Layout is great, beds were incredibly comfortable and the location was so convenient to beach and town. We especially loved not having to share outdoor space with carriage house people. It is rare to find a house in Rosemary Beach without the carriage house. So much nicer and more private!!!

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Best Location in Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We love being able to communicate directly with our guests rather than making them go through a third party and wait for a response. It’s what vacation rental by owner was always suppose to be! Hope you will come back again soon.

Perfect location and accommodations

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fabulous !!!

  • 5 of 5

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!
