Rest Ashore 5BR/5.5 bath, Private Pool, Office, Tower room, 2 fridges

***We provide for your convenience beach service which includes set up of one umbrella, two lounge chairs, and one cocktail table (March through Thanksgiving).

** Ask us about Vie De Mer, our sister home in Water's Edge (VRBO 374278). Rent both homes and have 10 bedrooms, 10 baths & 2 PRIVATE POOLS!

One of the newer homes to be built in the lovely private gated community of Water’s Edge, adjacent to Rosemary Beach. This gorgeous vacation home is on the south side (beach side) of 30a, located 50 yards from the beach stairs. This subdivision has only 28 homes, which allows for low density private beach access. A set of chairs with cocktail table and umbrella are provided on the beach for our guests. “Rest Ashore” is a custom desinged 5-bedroom+, 5 ½ bath vacation home with over 3,100 square feet. It is a 3-level private home with office and media room. Beautiful hardwood and tile floors throughout. It is outfitted with high speed wireless internet and flat screen TVs with DVD or 'internet apps' in all bedrooms. All beds (to include the bunk beds!) have overhead reading lights for those who enjoy reading in bed.

The main floor boasts a gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, double refrigerators, 5 burner gas cook top and a Dacor double oven with warming drawer. The open floor plan makes entertaining easy with a dining room table for eight, a bar area that seats five, and a games table that seats six. Relax in front of the 55-inch flat-screen TV. A powder room is located just off the foyer.

Stroll out back to the porch and patio area and enjoy the largest private pool in the subdivision that has a state-of-the-art (saline) non chlorinated cleaning system. Bask in the Florida sun poolside, or take a short 50-yard stroll down a lovely landscaped, palm tree lined path to the beach stairs to enjoy the beautiful white sandy beach.

This home has 3 master suites. The first floor master is a large bedroom with a king bed and a private bathroom, outfitted with granite and travertine. Strategically located away from the family room, this suite provides both privacy and convenience. Its location on the main floor makes it especially nice for anyone with reduced mobility concerns.

The main master bedroom on the second floor is unbelievable! This large bedroom with king bed has a private porch that overlooks the pool, an expansive bathroom with granite countertops, double vanities, soaking tub, and dual showerheads (w/rain-head). Attached to this bedroom is a private office that overlooks the pool and has a view of the Gulf. This office is multi-functional, as it can be used as a quiet reading space, work area, or nursery/young child’s sleeping area. A Pack-n-Play is available for your use (please bring your own fitted sheet for that). The other second floor master has a king bed, and is also spacious and has a private deck with gulf view. The bathroom has granite, soaking tub, and dual shower heads. For the younger crowd, we have a fantastic room on this floor that has two bunk beds, each with twin over full sized bed, that will accommodate six people. It has its own private bathroom. A full-sized dedicated laundry room with extra large capacity front loading washer/dryer is on this level. It has ample storage space, with plenty of room to sort and fold laundry.

The tower rooms on the third floor are ideal for the ultimate kid retreat. The “pajama party room” has two full size beds with a semi-private bathroom. The adjacent media room is a kid's dream! It has a 55” flat panel TV. The couch in here can pull out to a queen size bed. Both rooms have access to a large deck that provides great views of the Gulf.

The gated community provides privacy and serenity for a relaxing vacation, yet is conveniently located within a 3-minute walk to Rosemary Beach restaurants, shops, and spa. There is a 17-mile walk/bike path located just outside our entrance, and a Tom Fazio golf course is just a mile away. Fishing, sailing and kayaking are also available locally. Rosemary Beach has tennis courts and a fitness center that can be accessed for a fee. The Publix food store is only about a 5-minute car ride east on 98. The new outdoor shopping area in Panama City, called Pier Park, is a 10-minute drive east on 98. Pier Park has numerous restaurants and stores, and a new state-of-the-art movie cinema. Seaside is 7 miles west, and the Sandestin Outlet Mall, Silver Sands, is about 20 miles west.

We custom designed, professionally decorated, and carefully outfitted this home with comfort and quality in mind, and immersed ourselves in the details to ensure it would delight both the young and the wise! Come be our guest! “Rest Ashore” - the perfect place to create priceless memories with family and friends!

Guestbook comments from the owner


I can't thank you enough for the fabulous experience we had at Rest Ashore!! By far it was our favorite home that we have rented in our five years of going to Rosemary. The house more than exceeded our expectations. Not only was it clean, well equipped, comfortable, and "renter friendly", but you were so attentive and responsive to our questions and concerns. You all didn't spare any detail, from the abundance of hooks in all the rooms (so important when traveling with lots of kids in a season when layers are a must!!) to the Le Crueset pots (much appreciated by me who loves to cook). The five children adored having the heated pool, spending no less than two hours in it each day. It was also wonderful to have some many different living spaces for kids and grown-ups alike. For the first time in a long time I actually felt like I was taking a "vacation" with my family rather than a "trip". I have no doubt that your home and hospitality had a lot to do with that.

We look forward to renting Rest Ashore again next winter break. We'll be booking as soon as Atlanta Public Schools puts out their 2013-2014 academic calendar!

Beautiful home, lots of room for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast spending our Spring Break at Rest Ashore. Three families, including 6 adults and 10 kids, had splenty of space for everyone! The kids loved the very warm pool. We made dinner a few nights at the house and found everything we needed in the well-stocked kitchen! The two refrigerators were a great addition. All the bedrooms were good size and we loved the relaxing balcony overlooking the pool. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for an easy place to stay, lots of space and a hop, skip and jump away from the beach! Thank you for opening your home up to us.

Perfect Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 3 kids (9,7, 10months) has the most wonderful time and you can RestAshore that you will as well at this wonderful beach home. The home is very well equipped with all of our needs and wants. The heated pool is very accommodating and large. All of our rooms were spacious and quite comfortable. Plus, we were just a few short steps to the beach. We have booked the same home next year.

Great house !

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in multiple houses throughout 30 A. This is, by far, the best house we have ever stayed. We had plenty of room for 4 adults and 4 children ages 2-7. The kitchen, alone, is amazing. Two refrigerators and plenty of dishes, glasses and pots and pans. Everything you could possibly need is in this house. The pool was great for entertaining the children while we packed for spending the day at the beach. We had multiple family friends visit and had plenty of room for lunch and dinner gatherings. As soon as we have the school schedule for next year, we will rent this house again !

Rest Ashore was a great destination for a large group

  • 4 of 5

Every other year my husband and I take our 3 children and their families on an all family vacation. It is a time for brothers, sisters and cousins to spend some time together 24/7. Rest Ashore was a great destination for our group. There was a master bedroom for all adults and a bunk room for the kids. It was great to have a pool in addition to an easy access to the beach. We were a little worried about the pool because our kids are all 5 years and under. But the gated patio kept them contained when we did not have an adult accessible to join them in the water. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, pots and pans for our large group. There were plenty of TVs located throughout the house for everyone to watch when inside. My only criticism is that the house was not quite as clean as I would have liked. However, we did go at the end of the season which could have made a difference. Even with this criticism I would rent the unit again. We made some great memories.

Great house. Clean. Great pool. Very short walk to beach.

  • 5 of 5

Closer to downtown Rosemary than some of the homes on the actual property. Great area of shops and entertainment just across the street. You won't be disappointed.
