Property description

60 Second walk to the beach! Two blocks from Seaside center but nestled in the quiet woodsy Seagrove neighborhood, two houses away from Seaside Proper. This is the very best location, in the center of everything. Seaside was Voted by Travel and Leisure Magazine as The Top family Beach destination in THE WORLD!
You can walk everywhere! (scroll down to read my reviews) We are 2 blocks from numerous shops and restaurants in Seaside Center and then Watercolor. New on the market, this has been a private family cottage for over 30 years, but is completely updated! Decorated in a comfortable, classic and charming style and 4 houses from the beach access/stairs). Three bedrooms are all downstairs with full bath and 2 additional enclosed showers inside and outside (with hot water) contain 2 with very comfortable Queen Beds and one with 4 bunk beds, with guard rails (Flat screen TV with family cable channels in the bunk room) and a high def flat screenTV with VCR and DVD players in Living area/ and huge video library and cd library in the living area.) We have Bose cd player and ipod player in home. Yes, bring your own favorite music on your ipod or cd's. Bike rentals minutes away. Butterfly Bikes on 30A will deliver bikes and helmets to the cottage. FL law requires helmets for children. Bike rentals also available at Seaside bikes on the circle.

We have never had any problems with the oil spill; no oil ever got anywhere near our area. Our beaches remain white and powdery and our water clear and beautifully blue.

Renters must be 25 years of age or older and stay for the entire period.

This is the best value in the area.

Additional information about rental rates


  • House Cleaning $175 + tax
  • Tax Rate 11.5%


The pay-pal fee, is 2.9% per $1000, plus a 30 cent fee. Most people only use that if they are late in booking, and afraid of losing the property to someone else.

One half of total fee is due at the time of booking along with a signed contract, which I can email to clients. There is also a separate check for damage due at the time of booking, which will be torn up within 3 weeks of departure.

You may use Paypal, BUT you must incur the expense.

Please wait... Travel with confidence

Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Car: Not Necessary

This is the perfect romantic getaway for a couple, couples, or family. But if your party includes elderly or small children who can not navigate spiral stairs, this is not the place for you.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: This is absolutely the best spot in Florida. If you are not familiar with the area, trust me, you will be hooked after one visit. Nothing else compares. My family has been coming here since I was a child and my daughters have made memories here for years. You can literally park your car and walk and bike everywhere. In fact there are bike trails for miles in each direction. The cottage is 2 block lengths from the center of Seaside restaurants, and shops! A few minutes to Watercolor, Grayton to the west and Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach to the east.

Why the Owner Chose Seaside:
There are no High rises in sight! Completely updated cottage! Voted one the top 10 Best Beach Destinations in the World!! Call or email me, Brenda Blue (205.585.6633). I can email clients a contract, and they can mail or fax it back to me, and then and mail a check, if done so expediently.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We swim, walk the beach, fish, ride the bikes trails, read, watch movies, hang out at the record and book store, shop, eat the best seafood in the world....everything from raw and baked oysters to sushi (restaurants for vegetarians and meat lovers- everything is a short walk away). There is a great deli at Modica Market, the local grocer, with tables outside, overlooking the ampi- theater. There is a juice bar, grilled cheese sandwiches at the Meltdown. Bud and Ally, with a bar above to take in the sunsets. Great Southern Home, which has fantastic Oyster and Shrimp Poboys. There is a gelatto, a shaved ice shop, and an ice cream/ fudge shop.....and too many other eateries to mention, within walking distance. And the outdoor shower is a treat! Our shops are unique and charming but if you need a serious shopping spree, the largest designer outlet in the country is 20 minutes away in Sandestin. But, you will definitely be glad when you return to the respite of our area. Sitting on the porch sipping wine at sunset is a delight. It is always fun to visit surrounding communities minutes away, Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton, Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach and Blue Mountain. Each has a unique and charming design. There is a fantastic workout gym in Watercolor, which has killer zumba classes and great equipment.
