Located on northwest Florida’s gulf coast, between Panama City and Destin, Rivers Cottage is a glorious 3450 square foot luxe Italian country home with unparalleled amenities. Rivers Cottage is located within Rosemary Beach, a neo-traditional beach community on the eastern end of Scenic Route 30A. Named one of “America’s Most Romantic Small Towns” by CNN, Rosemary Beach combines New Urbanism with white sand beaches to create a tropical development with a lively town center.
This captivating five-bedroom masterpiece features a light and lofty interior with whitewashed walls and natural wood accents. French doors and transom windows overlook the courtyard and allow sunshine and natural light to fill every corner of the home. In the living room, slipcovered furniture, weathered wood, and rattan pieces make this a true coastal-style abode. Guests will feel right at home with the wood mantle fireplace and flatscreen TV at their disposal.
The kitchen and dining area are expansive, with a formal dining table that seats eight and a waterfall edge island with seating for four. Driftwood-colored cabinets serve as a natural focal point, perfectly complementing the marble counters and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. This luxurious space is complete with a wet bar for happy hour.
The main house hosts four tranquil and airy bedrooms. In the master suite, rest upon a king-size canopy bed while watching TV. French doors open to the lavish ensuite master bathroom finished in Carrara marble tiles, featuring a freestanding soaking tub, glass-enclosed walk-in shower, and double marble-topped vanity. The bathroom leads out onto a magnificent balcony overlooking the courtyard.
A Jack-and-Jill bathroom connects a guest bedroom with a king-size bed and a bunk room down the hall. The loft, which is found on the third floor, offers two queen-size beds, a flatscreen TV, and a full bathroom with a large, step-in shower.
You’re a quick two-minute walk to the beach while simultaneously having the luxury of a beautiful private courtyard complete with a sparkling private pool, outdoor kitchen, dining area, and outdoor fireplace. Lounge chairs surround the courtyard guaranteeing the ideal sunbathing atmosphere. Take the free beach cruiser bikes to the four community pools, beach, or town square, where locally-owned shops and rooftop restaurants line the community’s cobblestone streets.

When we walked into the Rivers Cottage, we were immediately enveloped in peace and serenity. Both inside and outside in the pool courtyard, everything was tailored to relaxing and memory-building experiences. The lovely home is decorated in calming white and aqua hues, and there are many areas where guests can gather and socialize, especially around the pool and outdoor fireplace, spacious patios, and outdoor kitchen. Lanterns set the atmosphere in the evening. Another notable aspect is that you can walk or bike only 3 blocks and be in the midst of Rosemary Beach, to eat, shop, grab coffee, or just stroll around. The Gulf-front beach is equally close by. What more could one want from a luxurious Florida vacation?”
Wonderful vacation experience! The house is beautiful and comfortable! Lovely and well equipped kitchen… fantastic location with restaurants and the beach within easy walking distance from the house….even for the two 82 year old ladies in our party!! The location is amazing and Brenda and the management team were always available to answer any questions we had promptly. I Will definitely make a return visit in the near future…”
Wow! An amazing home, community, and beach. Plenty of space to spread out, owner is responsive and wonderful to work with. We hope to come back!”
