The new normal in our lives can be confusing as we learn a new vocabulary, safer ways of greeting those we love, and try to adjust to our family pets taking on the positions of coworkers! Working from home is one of those activities that didn’t take long to adjust to, though. We fell in love with the comfort and convenience, but did you ever think that working remotely doesn’t have to mean working from your own home? When you stop and think about it, does your boss really care if the table you have set up for your temporary office is in your dining room at home or in the spare room of your absolutely fabulous rental property located in sunny Florida? We didn’t think that would be a problem, and as such, we have created this guide to ensure that you can enjoy a vacation to the Rosemary Beach® community while working full time without missing a beat!
You Deserve This Vacation to Rosemary Beach
2020 has not been a kind year, but things are starting to look up as more restaurants are opening for dine-in, shelves are stocked with essentials once again, and travel restrictions are lifting. If traveling by plane worries you, hop in your car and head to the beautiful Emerald Coast for a fantastic stay in one of our well-appointed vacation rentals!
You’ll Know You’ve Arrived
You won’t have to read road signs or street maps to know that you have arrived in the Sunshine State; the soft sea air and cool Gulf breezes are the surest signs that you have nearly reached the Rosemary Beach community and the happy spot you never knew you were missing, our vacation escapes! Once you arrive for your vacation to Rosemary Beach, after you have parked your suitcases in your chosen rooms, checked in with the office from your new home office spot on the balcony, and slipped out of your traveling clothes and into your new work uniform of flipflops and a tee, it’s time to head out to the beach for an afternoon (or evening) of fun in the sun!
We Offer Wi-Fi
While it may seem as if we KNEW you would be coming to work and play, the truth is we just want everyone to be happy, comfortable, and satisfied. Free Wi-Fi is included most of our rentals, allowing guests to do everything they need to keep their jobs safe and secure while offering the opportunity to play in between emails and conference calls, and our prime location allows hard workers to sneak away to play whenever they want.

Reserve your vacation rental in Florida today and enjoy every minute of your working vacation!
There are many reasons for choosing Florida and the Rosemary Beach community for your vacation getaway, but we’re going to guess that the Gulf is the first reason on your list! Emerald green, clear, and offering a tranquil respite from the troubles of the world, most visitors don’t even take the time to unpack before they are pulling on their swimsuits and heading to the beach! This guide to the Rosemary Beach activities on the water you can enjoy during your fabulous Florida getaway will ensure that every minute of your stay will be filled with fun and excitement!
Frolicking in the Surf
Within seconds of walking into your Rosemary Beach community vacation rental, you will probably find yourself heading outdoors to discover what fun you can have in the crystal-clear waters that have been calling to you for months. Wading in the shallows, laughing out loud as the surf ebbs and flows, diving into the cool to escape the sultry summer heat, and floating on your back feeling the sun on your face as the ocean gently rocks you into a sense of peace and contentment is the perfect way to start your journey to fun in Florida.
Follow the Dolphins
Of all the creatures of the sea, dolphins are the friendliest and the most fun to watch! And even though you may be able to catch sight of dolphins during your daily swim in the Gulf, the best way to follow them is from the deck of a 50-foot catamaran on a sunset dolphin cruise offered by Island Time Sailing Cruises. Lasting two hours and taking you through some of the most beautiful areas of the Gulf, this cruise is a favorite of everyone who experiences them!
Explore the World Under the Sea
If you think it’s beautiful from the top of the water, wait until you get your first glimpse of the world under the water. Colorful, vibrant, and teeming with happy surprises, it’s no wonder that snorkeling is one of the top water activities in the area! Snorkeling only requires the mask, air tube, and flippers for easy gliding through the water; most beach stores in the area will offer snorkel gear for rent, or you can bring your own.

As we all begin to pick ourselves up and begin the long journey towards moving forward after COVID-19, there’s a select group of people who deserve a little extra notice. Those essential workers who picked up the slack for those who were able to stay home, who woke up every morning preparing themselves for a day filled with hard work and uncertainty, the people known as your employees. Call them what you will, but those essential people ensured that your business has become the successful place it is today, and can you ever thank them enough? Probably not, but a good start would be with a corporate retreat to the white sand beaches of the Rosemary Beach community; our corporate Rosemary Beach vacation rentals are designed to spoil, and the beauty of the region never fails to soothe your souls.
Luxury and Style During Your Rosemary Beach Vacation
Have you ever walked into a place so clean, so bright, and so comfortable you felt at home within seconds? Our properties offer that feeling of hominess, and while they have always been sparkling clean, today they are ultra-sanitized to ensure that all worries are left behind! Kitchens that are spacious and cheerful allow for multiple “chefs” to work together in harmony, and dining rooms with seating enough for everyone can be used for team-building exercises that include putting together puzzles, playing board games, or enjoying the feasts of your labors in the kitchens! Luxurious surprises can be found around every corner, including living areas with state-of-the-art televisions, game rooms and theater rooms, and bedrooms with private balconies over the pool. Your employees will certainly get how much you appreciate them within seconds of stepping inside!
The Company that Plays Together
Yes, there are handbooks with all kinds of team-building exercises listed between their covers, but we all know that the best way to build a successful team is to spend some time playing like friends! Pool parties by the private pools, bike rides through the streets of the Rosemary Beach community, even working out together in a community fitness center (or private gym in one of our larger properties) builds a sense of companionship that a “rousing” game of Code of Conduct just can’t accomplish! Campfire stories, another team building activity, can be enjoyed around the fireplace on a chilly or rainy evening! Simply divide your group into teams and have everyone share some of their favorite workplace experiences; don’t be surprised when this moment right here jumps to the forefront!
The Rosemary Beach Community Welcomes You Back
It’s been a weird few months, and we looking forward to welcoming you back with open arms, thanking you as you thank your employees for all they have done! Reserve your Rosemary Beach vacation rental with us today
After being cooped up in our homes for the last few weeks, it sure feels good to be able to get out and enjoy the beauty of our neighborhoods, and if you spent those weeks planning your getaway to the Rosemary Beach community, we have to guess that you will want to spend as much time as possible outdoors! Now is the time to feel the sun beating down on your shoulders, the Gulf breezes kissing your cheeks, and know that you can do all the things you have been dreaming about over the last few months. This guide to outdoor activities you can enjoy during your Florida journey is guaranteed to give you memories you will never forget!
Cruisin’ the Community
Bamboo Bicycle Company offers the only tools you will need for lazy explorations of the Rosemary Beach community; a bike, helmet, and maps of the bike trails that will take you past some of the most beautiful landscape in Florida. Reduce your carbon footprint as you breathe in that salty ocean air and discover the quaint charm of the homes that make this unique community one of our favorite areas to live. Sidewalks built for bikes only make it easy and fun.
Which Way to the Beach?
Finding the beach will be of no difficulty when you stay in one of our vacation escapes in the Rosemary Beach community; chances are you will be able to walk right out the door of your property and bury your toes in the sugar white sands! What you choose to do out there, of course, varies from guest to guest. Choose between frolicking in the surf, tanning on the beach, or escaping into the newest summer blockbuster under a cheerfully colorful umbrella that will protect your skin from the elements! Building sandcastles and moonlit walks at shore’s edge are other ways to enhance the fun you can have outdoors in Florida.
Stay Home and Play
By home, we mean your vacation home, of course! Our comfortable and stylish vacation escapes offer community amenities for you to enjoy without leaving the property. Swim in crystal clear pools, barbecue your catch of the day on your back porch, or simply enjoy sunset views with a refreshing beverage in hand. A Florida sunrise is a sight to behold, stopping people in their tracks when out and about, and when viewed over the water from your balcony, it’s one you will never forget! Reserve your vacation escape in the Rosemary Beach community today!
Our charming Rosemary Beach community is known for more than its scenic landscape and friendly residents; the shops and boutiques that can be found here are designed to bring pleasure to everyone who enters their doors, and this guide will help you find the best of the best!
Patchouli’s, 82 S Barrett Square
This sweet boutique offers one of our favorite types of shopping experiences, as it features pretty much everything we could need in life, from essential oils to bath and body (including an entire collection that is patchouli made), beauty products, perfumes that are customized for your needs, and a decent line just for men. Plan on spending a few hours and probably more than a few bucks here; the prices are reasonable but do add up quickly!
Rosemary Beach Trading Co, 34 N Barrett Square #1C
Everyone’s guilty pleasure is doing a little souvenir shopping while on vacation, and as we seemingly can’t get enough magnets, t-shirts, and coffee mugs, souvenir shops pop up all over the world; you can even buy a souvenir coin from the gift shop at Notre Dame in Paris! The Rosemary Beach Trading Company may not be in Paris, but we think the trinkets and treasures found here are something you will fall in love with! Made well and designed to be stylish, we especially love their selection of shirts, sweatshirts, and hats!
Hissyfits Boutique at Rosemary Beach, 34 N Barrett Square #1A
Hissyfits Boutique is definitely a winner in the shopping arena! Offering a delectable assortment of women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories, this may be your favorite part of your Emerald Coast getaway! In any case, don’t expect to swoop in and swoop out in only a few moments time; this sweet spot deserves to be appreciated and enjoyed and will suck up more time than you realized!
Still So Much More in the Rosemary Beach Community!
From tea shops to clothing stores, your vacation in the Rosemary Beach community promises to be a shopper’s idea of paradise, and when you choose one of our surfside escapes for your accommodations, your vacation promises to be unforgettable! Reserve your stay with us today!
No matter how old we get, summer remains our favorite time of year. The days grow longer, and the smell of sunscreen and the warm, wet breeze off the Gulf fill our nostrils and bring peace to our hearts. This is when most of us take vacations, exploring places we have never been or returning to spots we know and love and have made an annual tradition. These journeys often bring us back to the days of our youth, and when your journey brings you back to the Rosemary Beach community (for the first or the hundredth time!) this guide to Rosemary Beach activities in the Summer will ensure you will stay young forever, no matter what your chronological age happens to be!
A Day on the Course
For many of our guests, a summer vacation is a golf vacation, and in the Rosemary Beach community, you will be surrounded by a selection of top-class courses to explore! Origins Golf Club in nearby Watersound is one of our favorites, but you can choose from a large variety of courses that run up the coast; road trips are fun when the final destination involves acres of green grass, golf carts, and of course, the 19th hole at the end!
Every vacation needs at least one afternoon set aside for a little retail therapy, and the shops and boutiques found in the Rosemary Beach community offer not just the traditional souvenirs you’ve come to expect from a beachside setting, but unique pieces you really will want to add to your collection. Rosemary Beach Trading Company, for example, offers magnets, t-shirts, and other knickknacks we all love to collect, but they also feature household items, lotions, candles, and jewelry for your shopping pleasures.
Two-Wheeled Adventures One of the Best Rosemary Beach Activities in the Summer
Exploring the community and the beaches on a bike is a great way to enjoy the weather and get a little exercise in at the same time, and the Bamboo Bicycle Company offers a giant selection of bikes to rent, including tandem bikes! A romantic ride through the area is an experience you will never forget, as you and your riding partner enjoy the sights, sounds, and aromas of a day in the Rosemary Beach community, be sure and stop by the Sugar Shak for a refreshing ice cream cone!
Summer Won’t Last Forever
But your memories of a Florida summer vacation and your stay in one of the Rosemary Beach community’s rental homes will last a lifetime. Reserve your summer getaway today!
Easter is just a few short weeks away, and if you haven’t made other plans already, maybe this year would be the perfect year for a holiday spent at the beach—Rosemary Beach, to be precise! Offering sunny skies and clear waters, white sands, and moments so beautiful they are spiritual, our beachfront community and charming vacation rentals will turn an ordinary Easter into an extraordinary one! This guide will ensure that you enjoy every fun-filled moment of this Easter 2020 in Rosemary Beach!
Eastern and Western Green Is Where It All Happens
Our community is a smaller one, but we know the best way to celebrate any holiday is with friends old and new, and Easter is no exception! Coming together on the green, both the eastern and western side, old friendships are cherished, and new friendships are eagerly made on this swathe of emerald located in the center of Rosemary Beach.
On the Eastern Green, guests can embrace their spiritual side with a “sunrise service” that begins at 8:30 AM at the Chapel at the Beach. It’s BYOB (bring your own beach chairs or blankets) and the message will speak to your soul. Sitting out on the green grass with the surf splashing in the background and the sun shining brightly is an experience your family will never forget.
When the service ends, gather up the family and head over to the Western Green for more Easter activities with the arrival of the Easter Bunny and a 15,000 Easter egg hunt! Pictures can be taken with the hopping star of the show, and a complimentary mimosa can be enjoyed by the 21 and over crowd as happy children giggle and squeal in delight over each colorful egg found!
Bring It Home
Of course, not everyone enjoys crowds, no matter how beautiful the day is, but the great thing about celebrating Easter in Rosemary Beach is knowing you can do it all without leaving the boundaries of your Rosemary Beach property! A sunrise walk on the beach offers quiet moments of contemplation, as you pray, plan, and revel in the beauty of a new day. Easter brunch can be enjoyed at the Pearl, but our fully equipped kitchens put the joy back in cooking, and colorful eggs can be hidden anywhere on the property! Reserve yours today and start a new Easter tradition!
March is a special month, bringing together millions of people, countries, cities, and states from all over the world, all claiming solidarity to one country in particular: Ireland. And as everyone wears their lucky green, drinks green beer, and generally celebrates all things Irish, you may be wondering where you can do the same during your Rosemary Beach getaway and stay in one of our charming Rosemary Beach vacation rentals. We’ve got you covered with this guide to St. Patrick’s Day in Rosemary Beach in March; following this guide means you will not miss a moment of the excitement!
St. Patrick’s Day Parade on 30A
Starting at Blue Mountain Beach and ending in Gulfside, this annual parade is our favorite way to celebrate! Offering Irish dancers, Irish food, and all the green beer you can safely drink, the good times start at 2:00 PM and end at 7:00 PM, allowing participants to move on to “greener waters” and other celebrations! Contests for the best redhead (girl) and best pirate (boy) as well as one for your best dressed pet make the event that much more fun!
Havana Beach Bar & Grill, Rooftop Bar, 63 Main Street, Rosemary Beach
What better way to celebrate the wearing of green than with views of the Gulf spreading out below you? Although it’s a mite sunnier and a whole lot warmer in Florida than it is in the old country, after a few green beers and pours of Jameson, you won’t even notice the difference! The music, the food, and the people who celebrate with you will ensure that this St. Patrick’s Day will be as close to perfect as if you were celebrating with a céilí in Dublin!
Build Your Own Green Beer
Because not everyone wants to go out and celebrate, we’re offering this super-secret and incredibly complicated recipe for making your own green beer to enjoy in the comfort of your Rosemary Beach holiday escape. You might want to get a piece of paper and pen, and after you write it down, you have to promise us you’ll eat the evidence; we don’t want the Irish to get angry with us for revealing their family secrets! Ok, are you ready? Pick your beer of choice and pour it into a glass. Now, pick up that little bottle of green food coloring you purchased at the grocery store in advance and squeeze it into the beer. One drop. Now drink! Ok, it wasn’t complicated or secret, but now that you have the ingredients for your own céilí, your at-home celebration promises to be more fun than a bag of shamrocks!
Our Properties Add to the Celebration
Coming home after the party is always a treat when you choose Rosemary Beach rentals for your vacation accommodations—reserve your stay with us today!
