I know it's still winter, but now that Christmas is over I've turned my attention to planning our summer vacation. It's the perfect time because the best places will be booked before you know it. My absolute favorite place in the world to spend my summer vacation takes only a day to get there by car. It's the beaches on the gulf coast of Florida. Last year, I showed you pictures of Watercolor, Seaside and Sandestin. Rosemary and Alys Beach have my attention this year.
First up is Rosemary Beach. It was designed by the same people who built Seaside, but with a European flair.
Now, let's take a look at the houses!
How cute is this one?!
House #4 overlooks the Cabana Pool
Okay, here is the one we can actually afford to rent for a week. It's a one bedroom carriage house that sleeps 10.
It's very cute, but it doesn't have a view of the ocean so we decided to pass. Unfortunately, most of the homes in Rosemary Beach don't have an ocean view or a very limited view. Another drawback is there are no tiki bars at the pools! That feels awful to admit, but it just doesn't feel like a vacation unless there is a frozen tropical drink in my hand as I'm lounging by the pool or on the beach. We're still planning on a visit to Rosemary Beach for the cute stores and restaurants.
Okay, now get ready! Alys Beach is a couple of miles away from Rosemary Beach and it's so beautiful it's almost hard to believe it's real. There isn't a thing we can afford here, but it's nice to dream.
Absolutely Beautiful Homes
Isn't this place amazing? I will be house gawking, for sure. I cannot wait!
