Seaside house description
Seaside, 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.
Share a truly memorable experience in this character filled and yet highly practical Seaside home, which boasts flexible accommodations for as few as two to as many as sixteen people by adding and subtracting bedrooms (and pricing). Natchez House combines high-brow Charleston style with informal gulf coast vernacular to create a rejuvenating and yet relaxing escape from the daily grind. Whether a family on vacation, a couple on a private getaway, a group on a gig (Arrowsmith stayed here) or a company or group on conference retreat, Natchez is the perfect destination. Directly across from the Westside Pool Natchez has a large outdoor table (seats 18), which begs families or groups to have long lingering dinners or stimulating conference discussions in the fresh air. This cottage, furnished head to toe with antiques, has a living room with flat screen TV, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, hall bath and queen bedroom with private bath on the first floor. The second floor has a bedroom with a queen bed and private bath, a bedroom with three twin beds and a bedroom with a set of bunk beds that share a full bath. The furnished open porches are shared with the rest of the complex (see below) and provide great places to rest, catch up, cocktails, meet casual passersby, and take in the sunset.
Connected by full length double decker porches are additional bedrooms and living space, Oak Creek Annie, which is surmounted by the 3rd-story 'cat-bird' bedroom, High Rustler. Bedrooms can be added or deleted for flexible renting and pricing to accommodate everyone from a single person or couple, to a large group, wedding party, company retreat, or extended family get together. The furnished open porches can be shared by the whole complex or used privately by each bedroom guest.
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, a double bed loft with star gazing skylight, and a full bath.
High Rustler, a third floor walk-up, is a unique Seaside experience with a small but cozy one bedroom and bath. There's a 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, it more than makes up for in an unobstructed view of the Gulf! The crash of waves on the beach drowns out downtown gaiety while lulling one to sound and relaxing sleep - bathing one in a truly refreshing and intimate experience.

Wedding PartyGuest comment entered by owner
Hey Orrs, What a wonderful weekend we had at Seaside this past weekend! Your Natchez home was the perfect place to rest and relax in between all of the wedding festivities. Also, what a fun surprise to find our friends had rented the other side of the house! Thanks again for sharing your lovely home. PS - the day bed on the landing is the prettiest one I have ever seen, was jealous that I don't own it, ha ha.

Family ReunionGuest comment entered by owner
We truly enjoyed our experience in your cottage. We felt right at home the moment we walked on to the property. Highlights would be all of the porch space and the comfortable and nicely appointed bedrooms. We were away from the cottage for most of our time but while there it was exactly what we needed. Seaside was amazing. As a matter of fact, my wife and I are considering a return for her birthday without kids in the Fall! We were going to head to Napa but Seaside is calling us back. I've even been researching real estate a bit... Thank you again for providing this cottage and all the best to you both!

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 House:
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.
