SoWal Style - Coconut Cloud Is The Perfect Home for Vacation Memories

August 15, 2017 by SoWal Staff

Easily unnoticed on the Western edge of Rosemary Beach, on the south side of Scenic 30A, there is a gated entrance to a lushly-landscaped circle of homes on the Gulf.

Past the gate lies the quiet neighborhood of Water's Edge, tucked away between the lively shopping, dining, concerts, and activities of Alys Beach, Seacrest Beach and Rosemary Beach.

Water's Edge has a grass-filled central park with a double row of tall palms leading to the beach. Each of the modern southern-style beach homes touches the park with pathways to a private walkover and the whitest and softest beaches in the world.

Standing proudly among the stately homes is Coconut Cloud , a comfortable vacation abode with six bedrooms and a private pool ready for the creation of beach vacation memories.

Owners Joni and Jeff Rossiter searched for their dream vacation home next door in Rosemary Beach for several years before deciding to start from scratch and build in Water’s Edge. To design Coconut Cloud  they combined all the best features from the homes they had toured. They wanted the interior to be sophisticated yet comfortable, with the finest coastal decor.

Joni serving up the fun!

“We have been visiting 30A for over 19 years and this has been the nicest and easiest rental we have ever had," says one happy guest. "The house was beautiful, very nicely decorated with plenty of room for everybody to spread out. Upon arrival we had every basic items stocked in the home.  Joni is very accommodating and on top of every situation. She even had her cleaning service mail me items that we had forgotten when leaving. That has NEVER happened anywhere! I have already recommended this property to all of my friends because we had such a great experience. Thank you for a wonderful family vacation. We will be back for sure!”

Coconut Cloud includes four adult bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, two living rooms, and a third-level kids' floor with two large bunkrooms and a bathroom. With a total of six bedrooms, the home comfortably sleeps sixteen. The back patio and pool is conveniently right off the gourmet kitchen, which makes poolside lounging a breeze.

Rossiter boys love the pool!

The attention to detail and accessories is impressive, and anticipates every guests' need. Knowing that travel is tiring, you are welcomed with fresh flowers and a fridge stocked with bottled water. The home has cleaning supplies, garbage bags, laundry soap as well as luxury bath products. Keeping young guests in mind, there is a baby bathtub with baby soap and lotion, pack 'n play, kid-friendly dishes, games, DVDs and plenty of beach toys which make vacationing with little ones stress-free. Joni even designed custom beach bags for guests to take home.

Coconut Cloud offers two different grocery delivery options so you can skip the hassle of going to the grocery store and start enjoying your vacation as soon as you arrive. Grocery delivery using SHIPT is free and can be used as many times as needed throughout the guests stay. Orders are placed online and guests get to choose when they would like their groceries to be delivered. SHIPT shoppers are extremely friendly and professional and offer products from Publix as well as ABC Liquors.

Concierge grocery delivery is also available and provided by the Coconut Cloud housekeeper. For a small fee that is much more affordable than other concierge companies on 30A, guests can place an order online from Sam's Club or Whole Foods and have their groceries picked up and put away so everything is ready for them as soon as they walk in the door. For any last minute items, bag of ice, bottle of wine, or maybe a delicious sandwich Seacrest Sundries is just across the street.

Rossiter boys love popsicles. In the pool!

A dedicated beach path off the back of the house provides direct access to the beach. The private Water’s Edge beach is never over crowded and is even more enjoyable with beach towels provided by Coconut Cloud as well as complimentary beach service, including two chairs, umbrella and a cocktail table. SeaOats Beach Service has an attendant on the beach daily to assist guests with renting kayaks, surf boards, stand up paddleboards and Yeti coolers. Beach bonfires are also available and are the perfect way to relax under the stars while listening to the waves of the gulf. Bike Rentals are available from Peddlers 30A, which is conveniently across the street in Seacrest Village.

Coconut Cloud is your ideal beach home - pristine, comfortable and fun! Being owner operated and managed, Joni is available day and night to help as you plan your trip or for anything you may need after checking in. Joni and Jeff want their guests to enjoy their home as much as they do when vacationing with their three young boys and making memories that last a lifetime.
