Recent Seaside reviews

  • Great Experience

    "My wife and I stayed at Sunrise the last 5 days during our Spring Break and absolutely loved it. Just enough room and accommodations for two people looking for a little privacy. You are within a 3 minute walk to your own private beach entrance, and about 3 minutes from the central Seaside park area where all the food trucks and restaurants are located. It was also great to have a washer and dryer in the unit so we could get all the laundry taken care of before heading back home. There was also super fast wi-fi in case you need to get some work done while you're there. The bikes are great to get to the pool / fitness area which only takes a few minutes as well. There's definitely only room for two, but we found it perfect for what we needed."

  • Thanksgiving week

    "We had a great thanksgiving week at Palm Cove. The house is great, the hot tub on the roof is awesome, the kitchen had everything we needed and then some. We experienced a couple of hiccups with cable not working but Ms Betty was very sweet and accommodating."

    "My husband and I recently celebrated our wedding anniversary at this adorable condo. In spite of some uncooperative weather, we still managed to enjoy a wonderful beach vacation because of this unit's Gulf-front location. We spent hours sitting out on the deck, where you can practically dip your feet into the amazing sugar-white sand of this gorgeous, private beach. We enjoyed our morning coffee and lunches out there, watching the dophin swimming in the water and listening to the waves crashing on the beach. You will not find a property that is closer to the beach or a beach more beautiful than this one! Regarding the condo itself, we were actually surprised to find that it was more spacious than we had anticipated. To echo a prior guest's review, the photos do not do it justice. The kitchen was well-equipped, there were plenty of linens, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was great. Another plus is the price guests pay for staying there. We are frequent travelers to the Beaches of South Walton, and this was by far the best value for our money! You are just minutes from all that Seaside and the surrounding communities have to offer without paying the inflated costs. Regarding food choices, we highly recommend a restaurant called, "Vue on 30A," voted the Best Waterfront Dining by Florida Travel+Life Magazine and, most recently, the "Best Place to Watch a Sunset" by the readers of Destin Magazine. We took advantage of the 2 for 1 special that runs from 5-6 pm, which really made a difference on our pocketbook. My husband fell in love with the pistachio-encrusted grouper, and I couldn't get enough of the filet mignon ala pizzaiola. With our roots in the surrounding areas of Boston, we are foodies for sure, and this restaurant was truly one of the best we've experienced. And, if you are so inclined, the Lemon-Drop Martini is by far the best you will find on 30A or anywhere else for that matter. We chose to eat our meals outdoors, on a beachside deck. You will not be disappointed, and the restaurant is just a few scenic miles down the road. Lastly, I would like to thank the property manager, Patty, for her role in making the whole process of booking the property seamless and for being so gracious in answering our many questions. She is a pleasure to work with, and she obviously enjoys working with vacationers. In a sentence, choosing this condo was a "home run" for us."

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.

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.
