Owner description: Rosemary Beach is a neo-traditional town located on northwest Florida's gulf coast, between Panama City and Destin, at the eastern end of Scenic Route 30A. Easily accessible by air or by car, the town is a 30-minute drive from the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport and a one-hour drive from the Fort Walton Beach Okaloosa Airport. The Rosemary Beach Land Company and President Patrick Bienvenue had a vision they wanted to share with the world. In 1995, that vision became a reality and Rosemary Beach was born. Rosemary Beach Land Company’s development plan is founded in the principles of New Urbanism and Traditional Neighborhood Development. Inspired by other classic beach towns, the 107-acre, gulf-front town of Rosemary Beach was designed to bring back the notions of community, neighborhood and convenience. In other words, this slice of heaven on earth offers residents the opportunity to live and work in paradise. In their search for paradise, people often travel to the far corners of the earth, only to come up empty-handed. In reality, paradise is a lot closer than most people think. Long stretches of pristine beaches made up of the brightest of white sands. Refreshing breezes blowing off the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The peace and tranquility of gently lapping surf, singing gulls and sandpipers. These are things that have been quietly awaiting discovery in a section of Florida's panhandle. These are the ingredients that make up the town Rosemary Beach--paradise found.Residents of Rosemary Beach are lucky to not only live and work here, but also to have the opportunity to play here. When work is finished and the rest of the errands can wait, Rosemary Beach is the perfect location for a vacation. Mild year-round temperatures, yet still a change of season; spectacular beaches free from crowds; the natural beauty of a beach-side destination located on a designated scenic road; aesthetically-pleasing architecture and award-winning, expertly-designed layout; convenient and quaint town center, amenities such as tennis courts, pools, dune walkovers to the beach and lots of green areas in which to relax; these are the qualities of the new paradise of Rosemary Beach.

“Luxury Feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2015 NEW

Rosemary Beach has a luxury feel to it. European style beach village sure separates itself from the remainder of the Red Neck Rivera area.

“Just beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2015 NEW

We stayed in Seacrest Beach right next to Rosemary. There aren't any public access sites that I could find, but we went to the beach every day from our condo a few steps away. White sand like powdered sugar and aqua water with moderate waves. Plenty of umbrellas and chairs lining the beach. A great way to spend a week!

This community is so quiet and beautiful and full of nature! Loved it! A very pedestrian community and it was nice to see people out walking and riding bikes! Loved seeing dogs on the beach!

“Rosemary Beach Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2015 NEW

This beach is gorgeous. Unlike the city of Destin were the beach is cordoned off by condo associations laying claim to beaches more than 75 feet from their buildings, Rosemary Beach has an open vista and laid back style. skip the Destin beaches and make a beeline to Rosemary Beach and quality time.
