  • beautiful cottage in a great location

    "We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage had great amenities and was right across from the beach. This really helped when we were carrying all the kids beach gear! The screened in wrap around porch was a great place to enjoy the morning cup of coffee and the rooftop deck was perfect to enjoy the sunsets. We would stay here again in a minute!"

  • Peace and quiet

    "My sister and I spent a perfectly lovely week in Revival last week. (November2014) The house is beautifully appointed, especially the comfy sofas and chairs. And the enormous canvases, mainly beach scenes were a pleasure to see every day. I used the master bath and it is newly renovated. The shower head is the best I have ever experienced. I plan on asking the owner what the exact model is because I want one for my house. All the towels and bed sheets were luxurious. I may get the brand of those too. We did not cook but we certainly could have in the fully loaded kitchen. We were too busy walking to the beach(which looks great), shopping and taking naps. I recommend this house for a small or large group."

  • Great location and spacious, modern property

    "This is our second year staying in Seaside and we were very happy with this house and location. It is one of the larger homes and offered tons of space for 2 families, with two different living areas and kitchens. The kids all enjoyed the bunk bed room and the parents each had a separate king master bedroom with en suite bath. The kitchen and bathrooms were modern and up to date and shared living area had comfortable furniture and was a place to hang out together. I wasn't sure if we would like the location - on the east side of town across from croquet green, but it was a 5-minute walk door-to-door from the house to Modica market straight down Seaside ave and the same distance to the beach, straight down Savannah ave (with a pokey 7 year old no less), so it was really easy. You forget how close everything is in Seaside. It was actually nice to be away from the crowds and traffic when we wanted to, and having the croquet lawn across from the house was like having a HUGE front lawn. We could watch the kids play tag or volleyball while sitting on the porch. The Homeowners Collection managers were lovely really helpful with bike rentals, etc and welcomed us with a beautiful bottle of wine and an adorable beach bag that we used every day. It's now our favorite house and we've already booked it for next year. I would recommend it to other families."

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.
