Our family had a wonderful trip to Rosemary Beach over Labor Day weekend! The house we rented through Benchmark was amazing! Every detail was addressed as far as the equipment we needed for the beach, the kitchen amenities and the location. What a wonderful trip!

Rosemary Beach is beautiful. It is not easily accessible to the public. You must have the code for the gated access. There is a nice ramp as well as steps to get to the sand.

this place is like an urban planning project on the beach. Every thing is planned retail, residential and common areas so if you're looking for a 'real florida' experience, this isn't it. Try Anna Maria or Cocoa Beach or St. Pete. However, if you want...More

Yes - very pet friendly. They do not allow pets on the beach but in most public spaces. We had our dog in tow during our most recent visit.

Parking can be a challenge but we typically found parking right on Main St or a nearby side street. Since we stayed right in the heart of the town we also just parked at the home and walked or rode bikes.
