Beautiful place! by Angela A 12/26/2019
Always enjoy rosemary beach- first time at this property. Loved it! Cozy , gorgeous, quaint close to the beach. Will go back!!!
Perfect Getaway! by Tony S 12/17/2019
We had a great weekend and the host made everything very easy. Beautiful property in paradise!
Perfect for a small family of four! by Ashley D 11/30/2019
We had such a wonderful time in Rosemary this year! The carriage house was everything we could hope for and more. Cheryl was so reliable and communicative. We really appreciated the abundance of supplies and beach gear. Our friends joined us on vacation this year, and their carriage house wasn’t nearly as equipped as ours. It was impeccable! We loved the natural light and eclectic furnishings. This was truly a memorable trip. Thank you!
Carriage House by Annette T 11/11/2019
Precious property- great location!
Perfect! by Jennifer L 11/08/2019
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The Francois was perfect for my family and the entire rental process was great. The owner was prompt with rental details as soon as I made the reservation and answered my questions very quickly as well. We have made Rosemary Beach an annual trip and we will certainly be back to stay at one of the owner’s properties.
C’est adorable by Wendy R. 09/28/2019
This is our second time staying at the Francois. It did not disappoint! We returned for our 30th wedding anniversary and had a great week. We love this carriage house. It has everything you need and is so comfortable. Great location and very private. We would definitely recommend staying here for a week. Thank you, Cheryl for being so accommodating!
The Perfect Getaway by Lisa F. 09/14/2019
There is little I could say to do this cute carriage house justice. It was truly a home away from home with the added benefit of bringing my two fur kids with me. This property has moved to the top of my list when I return to Rosemary.

Nothing like Rosemary!
Little piece of heaven! by Amy W. 09/07/2019
Loved the area and our stay.
Loved. Every. Minute! by Joda P. 08/25/2019
From the moment I stepped into the Cottage House, I knew I had made the right choice. It was in a great secluded location where we felt far from the crowds, but still close enough to activities and beaches. The condo was clean, well kept, and larger than I thought! Great communication. It was just perfect! Thank you, Cheryl!
Best Carriage Home in Rosemary Beach! by Lael M. 07/17/2019
A well equipped, comfortable home that was spacious, clean with everything we needed for our family. Great location, hosts were fantastic. We cant wait to be back !
Love the Francois Cottage! by Christina W. 07/13/2019
My family has stayed in the Francois Cottage 4 times, and we will definitely return! It feels like a home away from home. It’s very comfortable and and every detail has been carefully considered. We love it!
Beautiful and clean by Karla C. 07/06/2019
We enjoyed our stay here. The place is beautiful and clean. The location was great. We had access to bikes and our own parking garage. Short walk to the beach from here. The owner was helpful, kind and communicated well with us. Lovely place.
Stylish Getaway near Cabana Pool at Rosemary Beach by Annie C. 06/22/2019
this is our second visit at Francois Carriage. The small space is well organized: no bumping your head on spiral staircase, plenty of storage, large shower. It is 1/2 block from Cabana Pool. We enjoyed the large enough kitchen, the bikes, the W/D.
Always wonderful by Jill K. 06/15/2019
Great experience as always! Thank you Cheryl!
Best Beach Vacation Ever by bethany d. 06/08/2019
This was our favorite trip to 30A EVER! Cheryl's place was so perfect for us and our 1 year old baby. We loved the porch and the loft where we slept. The location is superb and the bikes provided are perfect. Cheryl was quick to respond to questions and also provided towels, detergent, soap, trash bags, dishwasher detergent, etc. It was our favorite place and we hope to return again next year!

This was the perfect spot for our small family and fur babies! Great location, all the amenities you could need, and lovely owners. We were minutes from coffee, shopping, great good, beaches and swimming. We’d definitively stay here again!

Amazing cottage home in Rosemary Beach
Outstanding place, walking distance to beach and great stores and restaurants. Swimming pools in neighborhood, and house had all we needed along with bikes and beach toys for the kids. Cottage was incredibly clean, and we received immediate assistance for any of our questions. Look forward to staying here again soon!

Just Right for our Family
We really enjoyed our time at this property. It is cozy but comfortable and well-appointed. We didn't find ourselves in need of anything that wasn't readily stocked and available. It was impeccably clean and really well maintained. Having a nice arrangement of boutique soaps in the bath was a welcome touch as well. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful home! Perfect location!
Francois Carriage House is in a great location- it’s a beautiful .2 miles from Amavida coffee and other shops, and about a 5 minute walk to the beach! The house is cozy and clean. We loved that it was pet friendly! The spiral staircase is a bit tricky for small pup feet but we just blocked it off with a baby gate so there were no worries there! Checking in and out were a breeze, great communication! We couldn’t have been happier or more at ease with everything!

Fabulous Family home for four!
Adorable little home for mom, dad, 2 boys and a pup. Very clean and well decorated. Quiet street but a quick walk to town square and a few minutes walk to beach. Lovely and accommodating owner. Would love to stay here again!

Great Place! Will Book Again!
Great place and space for the two of us! Super comfy king size bed, plenty of clothes storage. Full kitchen with a Keurig and all the home essentials. Great TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Able to park the car in the garage. Also right around the corner from the Cabana pool. Cheryl was great - very personable, wanting to ensure everything met our needs. Have been to Rosemary Beach several times now and this is our favorite place to have stayed. Will be booking here again!

Perfectly Appointed Carriage House
My husband, Mini Golden-doodle & I just returned from Rosemary Beach. We had a wonderful stay accentuated by this little carriage house. The owner was so kind to us during our stay and she thought of everything when it came to furnishing the place. The carriage house is located right by a community pool and is within easy walking distance to the town shops & restaurants. We loved our time there and will definitely be back!

Beautiful beach home! by Michelle D 07/23/2018

Beautiful beach home! We loved every minute at Rosemary beach and staying here!
We could not have been more impressed with our stay in this carriage house! Cheryl was so quick to responding to questions we had beforehand and helpful once we arrived. This house is perfect for a couple and two kids. Our 4 and 6 year old loved the bunk beds and their room. The loft is relaxing with a king size bed and lots of storage for all your items. The house is very well stocked with plates, pans, glasses, utensils, soap, laundry detergent, etc...The property is in a quiet, serene area with lots of windows to take in the beauty of the area. We enjoyed using the bicycles to ride to the beach which was only a short bike ride away. The pool next door came in handy too as we could just walk. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our trip to Rosemary beach and we look forward to staying here again! The kids are already begging to go back to the beach house! We are so thankful for an absolutely relaxing, amazing trip with lots of memories!

Lovely Cottage and Owners
We have been coming to Rosemary for years and not loyal to really any specific one cottage. We will def return to this unit. Cheryl is a delight and a wonderful property manager. the layout of cottage was very efficient and well stocked.
Great Vacation by Amanda M 05/21/2018
Sat, Apr 28 – Fri, May 04, 2018

Great Vacation
We have always loved Rosemary Beach. And this home was great for us. With a three year old and a baby, it was the perfect size. It was clean and nice. We had everything we needed for our week-long stay. It is a short block away from the pool (which is soooooo convenient with children), and not too far from the shops, restaurant, and beach. Everything was perfect. We'll be back without a doubt!!

Cozy and convenient, well appointed, lots of light, lots of beach extras
We've stayed in Rosemary Beach in several properties over the past ten years. Francois' Carriage House was just lovely--everything we needed was right there, super convenient to the pools, town, restaurants and the beach (nothing is very far in Rosemary Beach and we love it that way!). The owner was super accommodating and friendly--we loved everything about our stay. Nice to be able to sit outside on the deck, have a drink watching the sun go down. Having 2 adult bikes and plenty of beach toys and chairs/umbrellas was the best--a wagon to cart them down to the beach as well. We rented additional bikes for our kids and they were delivered and picked up directly at the house--couldn't have been easier. Perfect for a couple and up to 2 kids (who get along!). Bathroom is snug but really, we weren't in the house much to have it be a bother. Outside shower to wash off after the beach at the bottom of the stairs a HUGE plus. Cheryl was a wealth of information and helpful advice--thank you so much and we hope to see you back in RB soon!

Was a delightful stay in a cozy carriage house. Close to everything and heavily quiet. Dog friendly.
The Perfect Beach Getaway! by Jennifer W. 01/17/2018
This was our first visit to Rosemary Beach but it definitely won’t be our last! The carriage house was so comfy & fun! My husband and I along with our 2 dogs had more than enough room. The gorgeous beach, shops and restaurants are a quick, easy stroll although we enjoyed riding bikes around the entire area. Really the quintessential beach town! Loved it! Thank you so much, Cheryl for providing such a delightful home away from home for us and our fur babies:)
Amazing Getaway by Robert I. 11/06/2017
Rosemary was the most beautiful beach town I have ever stayed. The restaurants were great and the house was perfect! Several amenities are provided to make your stay even more enjoyable!
Absolutely Perfect! by Teresa S. 10/07/2017
This was a perfect place for our family of four! It was bright and very clean. The owners attention to detail made this the most relaxing vacation I've had in a long time! She thought of everything-so I didn't have to! The location is perfect and we absolutely will stay again!!
Awesome Place! by Brady P. 10/02/2017
We had a lovely time for my birthday at this cottage. We will for sure be back. Thanks for having us!
Great carriage house! Exceeded our expectations! by Scott H. 09/27/2017
Loved the loft main bedroom and the kids fit great in the 2 nd bedroom. Super clean and well decorated and just a short walk to pool and downtown shops. We’d definitely stay again.
Loved every minute of our stay! by Jordan R. 09/13/2017
We have never been to Rosemary Beach and we have also never rented a place on Home Away and we were blown away by our time there! Cheryl was great and answered all my questions promptly. The property was beautiful and perfect for my family. It is in a great part of Rosemary Beach and very easy access to the beach itself. The property was very clean and we felt right at home. We loved that 2 bikes and a wagon are included in your stay because those rentals can add up fast. When we come back to Rosemary Beach, we will definitely stay here again! Loved it!!!
Very clean and cozy. Wife and I had plenty of room and thoroughly enjoyed the excellent hospitality. by Trey Q. 08/31/2017
Very clean and cozy carriage house. My wife and I stayed there for 6 nights and enjoyed every second. We loved the complimentary bikes which made the short trip to the beach very pleasant. Enjoying our morning coffee on the porch was especially delightful. Homeowner was staying in the main house and she was very polite and hospitable. Always asked if we needed anything and recommended places to go and things to do. Highly recommend staying here and we can't wait for our next trip to the Whimsical Getaway!
Great location and wonderful carriage home! by Amanda L. 08/31/2017
The carriage home was very clean and nice inside. The pictures are exactly what it looks like. I contacted Cheryl to ask a question and received an immediate response. Bikes were included and great to have! I would go back in a heartbeat and stay in the same house.
Loved our stay at the Whimsical Getaway in Rosemary by Jeff B. 06/21/2017
Our family of 4 stayed at the Whimsical Getaway in Rosemary Beach. The location was perfect and the house was very clean. We will definitely be returning.
Happy family spring break beach getaway by Montgomery 04/05/2017
Our family of three plus French Water Dog stayed over spring break and thoroughly enjoyed this peaceful and happy home in Rosemary Beach. Getting there and into the carriage house was easy, and well explained on the instructions provided. We appreciated that the pool and beach access cards were provided upon arrival. The home is well appointed, clean and comfortable with all the amenities we needed including a king bed. Location is steps to the pool, shops and beach. Internet connection worked. A special thanks for allowing pets, it makes it so much nicer to have our dog with us for walks and not having to feel guilty about laevingher at the kennel. She got a lot of compliments, pats and enjoyed her beach vacation as well.
Charming Cottage by Sherri M. 03/17/2017
We had a great stay in this nice little cottage. Our hostess was very prompt in answering questions, which was great. The town is darling, and there is much to explore in the area. Highly recommended!
Lovely well appointed carriage house apartment by Barbara W. 01/30/2017
This was our first trip to Rosemary Beach. We didn't have the best weather with major storms - heavy rains and tornadoes both days, but what a lovely home to be cooped up in. We plan to return soon.
