Property description

Seeking Seaside Nirvana at an Earth-bound price?

“Amazing Grace’s Thyme-Out” is the perfect retreat for you! It's the best value in all of Seaside!

Just six cottages down from the jade waters of the Florida Gulf, this cozy, ground-floor apartment is located on Thyme Street — a pastoral retreat reminiscing of a leisurely era with sandy streets canopied by live oaks and magnolias that insulate you from the frenetic pace of congested crowds in a hurry.

Stroll to the beach access ramp (1.5 blocks) or Seaside’s central square (5 blocks) in mere minutes.

Best of all, our fully rehabbed Seaside-styled cottage offers two (2) bedrooms and a full bath without the Seaside exorbitant cost! The average two bedroom cottage weekly rate in Seaside will cost you as much as 200% MORE!

“Thyme-Out” was TOTALLY RENOVATED with new designer beds, furniture and accessories! Its spacious layout with approx 1000 sq ft of living space sports a large bathroom with full tub, an open concept kitchen/living space with appliances (including dishwasher and washer/dryer), WIFI and a new 42” Sony HD flat screen, LCD TV with cable, & Blue Ray. The larger bedroom is furnished with a queen-sized bed. The second bedroom has two sets of bunk beds along with a TV for the kids. The cottage accommodates a total of 6 people (Note: Though the cottage sleeps 6 people, if all 6 are adults, the space may feel a little cramped.)

“Thyme-Out” consists of one level on the ground floor. No need to worry about senior citizens climbing stairs or children falling off balconies.

Your visit may overlap with the owners or other guests in the second-floor unit, but your separate entrance provides privacy and maximum size acoustic foam insulates your accommodations to ensure complete solitude and rest during your vacation.

We welcome you to all the amenities of our home, including the cable TV, internet WIFI, board games & puzzles, bikes, lawn chairs, patio, off-street parking, and on-site basketball goal. Or take your kids to the local playground three (3) blocks away.

So take a “Thyme Out” from paying sky-high prices and check out this 2BR gem on the brink of the ocean, at the border of Seaside, and in the center of it all.

12% government-mandated lodging tax, $150 cleaning fee, & a $250 refundable security deposit are extra.



Seaside 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. Condé Nast, MSN Travel and National Geographic Traveler are other prominent travel guides bestowing accolades upon Seaside.

Area beaches along 30-A (the main artery) remain the only destination in the nation to have all 26-miles of coastline certified as 'Blue Wave' beaches by the Clean Beach Council. This seal of approval helps vacationers identify well managed beaches that are safe, clean and pristine.

Seaside is unique in that parents can relax while providing ample activities for children. It allows the whole family a freedom to explore and experience a simpler life while benefiting from the New Urbanism that has been the guiding principle of this town. It doesn't matter if you are going shopping, to the beach, to a restaurant, or to the post office - walking or biking are the preferred means of getting there. The opportunities to enjoy cultural activities whether it be live theater, great art galleries, live concerts, or movies on the lawn; to learn a new skill such as tennis, bocci ball, or extended porch sitting; or just to have fun riding bikes, sharing, and experiencing the special Seaside collection of white picket fences and pastel-colored wooden houses are all right there - just down an inviting brick street or a hidden winding path. Dune lakes, golf courses, mountain biking, fishing, and surfing are readily available.

Seaside is a beach town with an old fashioned feel, lots of white picket fences, and winding footpaths. There are twilight concerts and movies on the grass, bike rides on the narrow streets, dancing at Bud and Alley's, a different, gorgeous sunset every night, yoga, tennis, croquet, wine festivals, live theater, frolicking on the beach, Camp Seaside, Kids Night Out, long peaceful walks, crabbing in the Gulf, searching for shells, eating ice cream cones, swimming and floating in the crystal, clear water. Nearby are golf courses, miles of bike paths, fishing, kayaking and canoeing in dune lakes.

A short drive takes you to Sandestin with one of the largest outlet malls in the USA featuring top designer fashions. And more eateries, water parks and entertainment of every sort, including multi-screen cinemas, lie close by to the east and the west.

Direct flights available into Panama City Beach’s (ECP) new airport (only 25 minutes from Seaside) now available from Atlanta, Houston, Nashville, Memphis, and Orlando! Or fly into the Valparaiso/Destin airport, a 45 minute drive away.
