Our History

Rosalita House was founded on the site of what had been an original cottage owned by NY publishers, built in the early 60’s and sadly destroyed by Hurricane Andrew.  The area is called Juicy Hill and was the first “subdivision” on the island. 

Clem Bruns Schaub of Florida was the Architect, inspiration for the design came from the homes designed by Oliver Messel – homes long admired by the owners. Driving the interiors was the desire to have every room open to the outside, so that the indoor and outdoor spaces would merge and blend seamlessly.

The house is enjoyed today by the owners large and growing family, who have found a home away from home at Rosalita House on Harbour Island. The name was inspired by the Bruce Springsteen song "Rosalita".
