Seaside cottage description

Seaside (the house is within Seaside proper) is the only town named on both Frommer’s list of Top 12 Destinations of the World for 2010 and Travel+Leisure Magazine’s list of 100 Greatest Trips.

2-story Oak Creek Annie and 3rd floor High Rustler (rented separately or together - High Oak) form a 3-story cottage for persons 12 and older (bedrooms are on separate floors so not suitable for young children).

Oak Creek Annie is the first two floors, with queen size bedroom and full bath on 1st floor and kitchen/living on 2nd floor. There is also a double bed sleeping loft reached by ladder (limited to persons 12 and older) and full bath on 2nd floor.

High Rustler is a 3rd floor queen bedroom only (no kitchen or living) with full bath and spectacular view of the Gulf.

Oak Creek Annie and High Rustler can be rented together as a 2-bedroom unit (High Oak), but please review pictures of 2nd floor kitchen/living to confirm snug quarters meet your needs.

Winter Option:
During the winter months (only), the main house (Natchez House VRBO #429957) can be rented as a one or two-bedroom lock-off at same price as one and two bedroom options for High Oak.


Experience Oak Creek Annie & High Rustler:
Share a truly memorable experience in this character filled and yet highly practical Seaside home, which boasts flexible accommodations for as few as one-two to as many as four people by adding and subtracting bedrooms (and pricing). The house combines high-brow Charleston style with informal gulf coast vernacular to create a rejuvenating and yet relaxing escape from the daily grind. Directly across from the Westside Pool the house has a large outdoor table (seats 18) and charcoal grill (guest supplies charcoal). This cottage, furnished head to toe with antiques, has a living room with flat screen TV, fully equipped kitchen. All bedrooms have full baths. Open porches are furnished with Adirondack chairs and provide great places to rest, catch up, cocktails, meet casual passersby, and take in the sunset.

The rich decor of Oakcreek Annie's speaks of rustic times and folklore. The first floor has a queen bedroom with private bath and jacuzzi tub. The second floor is where you'll find the living area with flat screen TV, kitchenette, full bath, and a double bed sleeping loft reached by ladder with star gazing skylight.

High Rustler, a 3rd floor walk-up, is a unique Seaside experience with a cozy queen bedroom only and bath. There's no kitchen or living room, but there's a gas fireplace, flat screen TV and efficiency amenities which include a coffee maker nestled in a corner. This cottage offers a queen bed and the bath is shower only.

What it lacks in elbow room, High Rustler more than makes up for in its unobstructed view of the Gulf! Read a book on its outdoor balcony, or open windows and let the crash of ocean waves on the beach lull you to sleep - a truly intimate and refreshing experience.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: Robert Orr, FAIA, LEED® is a Seaside original. He is an award-winning architect, Smart Growth planner and one of the originators of New Urbanism, which aims to create walk able, mixed-use, and mixed-income neighborhoods. His collaboration with Andrés Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk at Seaside, Florida in 1982 was honored by Time Magazine as '...the most astonishing design achievement of its era and one might hope the most influential.' Robert received his MArch from Yale and his BA from the University of Vermont. A practitioner, professor, lecturer, and writer, Robert lives with his wife and four children in New Haven, Connecticut.

                      Why the Owner Chose Seaside:
                      Seaside is the 'historic district' of all the subsequent new towns (Watercolor, Rosemary Beach, Water Sound, Alys Beach) on the Gulf Coast. After taking part in Seaside's 1982 creation, and then witnessing tremendous success after each new street, it was only natural to dive in and become an owner. Seaside never fails to surprise with the constant evolution of the town. It's always a fresh experience, no matter how many times I return.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We often come with other families, sharing our house all together. One such family announced it was the first time they ever felt they were on vacation with children. Seaside's so safe and child friendly that you feel comfortable giving them bikes to explore on their own. The stress of being a parent on vacation just melts away.
