If you have to can just RENT.

 We rented a carriage house (below) that is part of a bigger main house (above) in Rosemary Beach. First time renting through VRBO and all went smoothly. 
It had a cool spiral staircase, loft and wonderful wrap-around screened porch.

Rosemary Beach was established in 1995 and is based on the Dutch Colonial style:

Details are high end, complete with GAS lights:

Lots of upper level living with great balconies:

And great entryways:

Some were more creative and still fit into the neighborhood.
This one used green logs and had a boat shaped balcony:
This is the mosaic house that i had found on pinterest:

 These homes are in Seaside, where they filmed the movie, The Truman Show. 

Seemed like 50% of all homes are for sale.
Here is a listing in Rosemary Beach. Ow.
Speaking of money, here is house that i spotted on a walk. It smells of entertainment or sports money.  This is just the guest house. 
Here is the rest of the place:
