Seaside house description

Bring the family to the beach and relax! Park you car and grab your bike. Enjoy your Seaside vacation in this great beach house located in the heart of Seaside. Walk to everything in town within 4 minutes - excellent restaurants, unique shopping and the gorgeous white sands of the Gulf of Mexico - are all out your back door!
On a quiet corner, across from the church, you will find Ecstasea House, an appealing home filled with bright light, fresh new décor and 5 porches for you to take in the incredible views of ocean, town and people.

Ecstasea House is a well-maintained home; painted in soothing beach colors, updated bathrooms and crisp new slipcovers make Ecstasea House a favorite of renters.

Ecstasea House lives large. There are plenty of quiet corners to read or watch TV. Double doors in the living area open wide to the big screened porch for outdoor dining and visiting. A protected side yard allows you to sit on the porch and keep an eye on the kids playing outside. The back porch offers quiet, shade, and more dining space.

Right out your door you have multiple shops & three pools, a fitness club, spa, tennis courts, 20 miles of bike paths, a children’s play park, Columbian speciatly coffee and numerous award-winning restaurants. A five-minute walk takes you to Seaside’s town center via the Ruskin Artist’s Colony. One delightful minute more and you will find yourself on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Seaside pools await your kids, their pool toys, and towel. Choose from either the Westend pool with long lap lanes and a great big kids pool or the Eastend covered pool with sun protection and another big separate kids pool.

Sunsets are brilliant from the top deck of Ecstasea House. As you climb the stairs to the tower, take a peak out the stair window to see a perfect vignette of Seaside's famous white church and steeple framed within.

Leave your car parked in the cool canopy of trees in the back yard; you won't need it. Book your EcstaSea House in Seaside vacation today.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1987

                      About the owner: My husband discovered Seaside while driving to a dive location in Panama City. Unmarried at the time, he promptly bought a lot in the very undeveloped but pristine beach community of Seaside. A few years forward, I entered the picture and we decided to build a beach house, get married in Seaside and begin our lives together. Over the past 20+ years, we have raised 3 children each one with special Seaside memories to carry into their adult lives. Our family traditions include many Seaside events: Thanksgiving parade every year, the annual family porch photo (no matter how happy or unhappy anyone is!), and too many pizzas on the top deck with great wine and an even greater sunset. Of course as we have grown and changed as a family so too has our precious town of Seaside. We embrace most of those changes - just like in our family - and pray you find the magic and delight in the Seaside of today. Please call us to talk about the season's events during your vacation in Seaside!

                      Why the Owner Chose Seaside:
                      Seaside breathes family and great memories! You will feel the same way about Ecstasea House. Make it is yours for the week right when you step up to the wide welcoming front porch. Open the door to a comfortable, flop-on-the-couch kind of beach house with lots of light shining in, cool fans and crisp clean decor. You will love the layout, the space and the porches!! We know you will feel welcome and wonderful from the moment you enter; just like we did over 25 years ago when we first came to Seaside. Give us a call and get your reservation made today!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      One of the best features of our great little house is its location. Within 4 minutes, you can be at any one of the Seaside pools, shuffle board or tennis courts. Head to town center and in 4 minutes (I am not kidding!) you can begin a unique shopping experience known as Perspicasity or DeJaVue or Pizitz or Sundog. The Ruskin Artist Walk is two minutes out the back. The boys have played in the scrub oak tree park since they could walk! I have to remind my 6'1' sixteen year old that he might break a branch and no, climbing that high is not a good idea. The kids still love to get gelatos at Heavenly Shortcake in the evening. We think 'ice cream!' and in 3 minutes we are there trying to decide if a hot fudge sundae or pistachio feels right for the night. Our children, now 20, 17 and 13, have grown up in and around the great places just outside our door. We know you will discover your own favorite places too. Take a step off the front porch, turn right or left, and head out!
