YOUR BEST BET FOR LATE SUMMER & FALL 2012!
Seaquell has been booked tight for the past two years and we are so thankful for our guests.
In past off-seasons, we've often either blocked several weeks off for personal use or else had it booked with longterm guests who've fallen in love with Seaquell and our little Magnolia Community. But this year, we're keeping it open for shorter rentals. Check out the off-season bargains!
There is no nicer house in Magnolia Cottages by the Sea!
Gorgeous interior. Fabulous furnishings. We work hard to offer you the best in beach vacation heaven.
Slip out the back bedroom and curl up on a lounge under the stars on the large off-bedroom deck. Grill up some fish and dine al fresco on one of the two upstairs balconies. Stroll the beach, float in the heated pool!
There's no better way to enjoy the pristine sugar-white beaches and emerald-green waters of Florida's forgotten coast than at Seaquell Cottage.
Seaquell Cottage is a short walk down the cobblestone road to the private deeded beach walkover, and a stone's throw to the community pool.
When you get tired of relaxing, you are minutes from golf (we're about a mile from one of the nicest area courses), go-carts, shopping, kayaking, tennis, zip lining, and all that you could want in beach adventure.
The second-story living space in Seaquell is the largest in Magnolia, with two balconies. Each of the three bedrooms has its own full bath, and there is a huge deck off the master suite with lounges. An extra set of hall bunks and a queen sleeper sofa provide beds for 12 of your friends and family.
The upstairs living area has a huge dining table with room for everyone. Beautiful hardwood floors and amazing decor: bright, natural colors, top-quality furniture and appliances (granite counters! stainless appliances!), and all the electronics you will need to feel at home.
Give Seaquell the chance to fulfill your dream beach week. You won't find more quaint, quiet, and idyllic neighborhood that's close to the excitement and bustle of the fabulous and famous Seaside/Watercolor on one side and Rosemary/Seacrest Beach on the other.

Comfort, Charm, great access to one of the greatest beaches on 30A
Comfort, Charm, great access to one of the greatest beaches on 30A
Spent a luxurious week, was happy with the friendly layout, ease of access to the beach, comfort of the furniture. The house is perfectly set between the quiet luxury of Rosemary beach and the bustle of Seaside beach. Close to grocers, seafood markets, etc. Loved the quiet, and loved cooking in the kitchen with the large dining room. Owners were easy to deal with, and the house was everything they promised! Will come back to this house every year, if I can. Best Value in SEACREST!

Great family vacation home!
Great family vacation home!
We really liked the layout of the house. It was perfect having the bedrooms on the first floor when returning from the beach and pool. We shared the home with another family and found that there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen area was large and had a very nice walk in pantry. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, etc... and had everything we needed for cooking meals for 10 people. It was an easy walk to the pool and beach and a great location for taking a morning walk/run along 30a. I would highly recommend it for large families or 2 families vacationing together.

While the property was very nice, we probably would not rent this particular home again. I did not really like the lay out of the home. Also the owner may want to check the blinds in the home. Quite a few have broken strings and do not open correctly or at all. Could also use a newer grill. If you move it, it starts to fall apart.

Owner response: Hi Janet, Thank you for your review. We were waiting for the new blinds to arrive and I'm sorry they were not installed prior to your visit. All window blinds have now been replaced. The grill is being looked at. I am sorry that the layout of the home wasn't your cup of tea. The living area upstairs and the bedroom down definitely appeals to people who enjoy having two second story decks, but I guess it's not for everyone. We appreciate your visit and hope you went home with some lasting fond memories. Jennifer

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My husband and I moved to Florida from Ohio in 1997. We both grew with a vacation home (me: a cabin the mountains of Pennsylvania with no plumbing! and he: a lake house in Michigan). We knew we wanted to give our kids the kind of experiences we had, an opportunity to escape everyday life and explore the great outdoors. The 30A area is one my favorite places to be, and it's a dream to be able to share in that slice of paradise.
Why the Owner Chose Magnolia Cottages by the Sea:
30A is the perfect combination of idyllic quiet and go-go fun. You can lounge on the decks and listen to the water and wildlife, hike the trails, bike the path, wine and dine, shop, or waterslide. It's all there.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
From Seaquell, you can walk right out to 30A and take advantage of tennis, golf, hiking, canoing, and biking. Or simply lounge by the pool. Evenings offer something for everyone, ice cream shops and live music, wine tasting and great restaurants.
