  • Wonderful beach front rental!

    "Our trip to Ramsgate was nothing short of amazing. We stayed there at the end of October and it was beautiful - got a little cold the last day, but that's typical for being so late in the year. The beach had gorgeous white sand and the townhome is right on the beach (the bottom of the stairs is in the sand)! We left the sliding screen door in the master bedroom ajar at night to by lulled to sleep by the sounds of the ocean. The place is beautifully decorated, but you may not notice because the views are just spectacular. The kitchen is fully stocked: plates, different size glasses, coffee mugs, tea kettle, pots, pans, etc. - everything you need to cook and eat in if you prefer. We had an 11 month old with us and there was a family with small children in the condo next to us and neither of us could hear noises coming from the connecting townhomes - so the sound proofing is also a huge bonus!! We will be back for sure - we had an amazing trip and it was mostly due to this rental property."

  • Family of 8 from Louisville, KY and we didn't want to leave!

    "We loved this cottage. It was well stocked, the décor was simple, beachy, and shabby chic. We had five children 15,15, 11,7,7 and three adults and we were very comfortable. We loved the donuts delivered the first morning by the caretakers! The living area and kitchen are small but we ate in most nights and either the adults sat on the patio or we ate in shifts. It was absolutely adorable and the location was perfect. It was a block from the beach, a block from the covered family pool,adult pool, work out room and recreational area. It is a short bike ride and about five blocks to the outdoor family pool. Two blocks from the center of Seaside with all the shops and restaurants. You will need to reserve your bikes from Big Fish in advance. The only issue we had was that there were no parking passes and no one answered our email requesting one but we simply put a copy of our contract and a note with our phone number in our front car window and it wasn't a problem with security."

  • Perfect stay for my birthday

    "Our stay was perfect for my birthday! It was decorated to perfection and was very comfortable, I wouldn't have changed a single thing. And we loved the bottle of champagne that left for us in the cottage."

Seaside Travel Tips

On the Florida Panhandle between Panama City Beach and Destin is the master-planned community of Seaside. Robert S. Davis inherited the land that became Seaside from his grandfather with hopes of converting it into an old-fashioned beach town. Seaside was one of the first cities in America to use New Urbanism design, which promotes walkabilty between neighborhoods and offers several different types of housing.

Waves crash into the Gulf Coast and visitors can swim and play in the clear waters of this Northwest Florida beach destination. The main beach in Seaside is accessible under a tall gray structure that resembles a cross between a pyramid and lighthouse.

Seaside offers visitors with a sense of community and the family-friendly feel is everywhere. The city is home to one of the best beaches on Earth and gained popularity as the filming locadtion for "The Truman Show" starring Jim Carrey.

Seaside Attractions

It's prime location on the Gulf Coast makes Seaside a popular place for visitors. There are three swimming pools, six tennis courts, a world-class croquet lawn and nature walks. Water activities are an obvious must when staying in Seaside. You can have just as much fun as the kids with sand volleyball, sandcastle building, sunbathing, swimming, fishing, snorkeling and a number of other water adventures.

Kids will love a vacation to Seaside where they can learn how to surf and go kayaking, snorkeling, skimboarding, boogie boarding and paddle boarding at Kidz Beach and Surf and Skim Skool.

If you'll be visiting Seaside in March, sign up to be a participant in the Seaside Half Marathon and 5k Race. Runners from all over the country flock to Seaside for the race and each participant receives a medal upon completion. The half marathon will pass through the neighboring communities of Watercolor, Grayton, Blue Mountain Beach and Santa Rosa Beach. You'll run along coastal Highway A30 and take in beautiful views of the water as you progress through the course.

Seaside is very much about creating things and celebrating artists in the community. The whole family will love a trip to The Repertory Theater. It was founded in 2001 and welcomes more than 25,000 visitors every year. The Emerald Coast Theatre Company performs there and is the only professional company on the Emerald Coast. they perform everything from fun kids shows to plays for adults.

In November Seaside hosts the Seeing Red Wine Festival, a nationally-known event. There are testing tents and wine samples from around the world with the option of purchasing your favorites to take home with you. The festival is held on the streets of Seaside and is one of the community's favorites. Tickets for Seeing Red are $120 per person and get you all the wine, food and music you could ever want. Special chefs will also be there to offer demos and samples of some of the best hors d'oeuvres you can find at local restaurants. Other wine events in the Seaside area include Vine to Wine at Seascape Golf, Beach and Tennis Resort, Al Fresco Reserve Tasting in Ruskin Place, Taste of the Beach After Dark in Santa Rosa Beach and Taste of the Beach and Charity Auction in Destin.
