Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

'Forever Mary' is located in Seaside on 25 Tupelo Street within 50 feet of beach access. Keep this in mind when looking for the right house, 'If you are not close to the beach, you are not close to the beach!' You will not want to go home once you experience the relaxing atmosphere of Seaside. If you would like quick answers to questions about the house, please call, Rich 205-368-1732 or text and I will get back to very quickly.

Put your car keys away and enjoy the benefit of staying in Seaside. You can walk or bike if you like to everything in Seaside. Whatever your pleasure, a day at the beach (only 100 yards), watch the sun set at the Tupelo Pavilion (the most photographed place in Seaside), walk to one of the 3 pools, (have lunch delivered to you as you relax by the family pool), shop, enjoy a live play, movie, or music at the Amphitheater, tennis, bike on the nearby bike trails, have dinner at one of the many restaurants, stroll the artist colony and the many art galleries, unwind in the fitness center, or just lose yourself in the swing or rocking chairs on the large screened porch.

Our home features 4 bedrooms and 4 baths (3 are private). 3 bedrooms are on the main level, along with the open great room and dining room with high ceilings, large kitchen and large screened porch (additional dining table on the porch). Upstairs bedroom has private bath, TV and balcony overlooking Seaside and the Blue Gulf waters. Each bedroom has a closet and chest of drawers for your convenience. After enjoying a day at the beach you can shower in the private outdoor/indoor shower. To keep you in touch with reality there is WiFi.

It is one of the original houses built in Seaside (updated in 2016). You will feel right at home with the large open spaces designed for larger families. We have made it our 'home away from home' and hope you will enjoy it as much as our family and friends have over the years.

Why Rich Hodges chose Seaside

Our late father was one of the first homeowner's in Seaside. We have enjoyed every minute at the house for 34 years. Sitting on the large front porch on the swing reading a book while the rain patters off the metal roof. We now honor our late little sister Mary.

What makes this house unique

Our house is located at 25 Tupelo Street, the 2nd house on the left from Hwy 30A. From the front porch it is only 150 feet to the beautiful Tupelo beach pavilion. We are a 4 minute walk to the center of Seaside, but far enough away from the traffic.

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at "Forever Mary". We had two families of 4 each (a total of 8 people) and had plenty of room. The kitchen is updated and gorgeous. Kids were able to walk to the town center and see a movie on the lawn and the 4th of July parade was awesome. The front screened porch was a favorite in the evening for the kids to play board games. The reservation was easy to coordinate. Thank you for sharing your wonderful family home with us. One note: we did discover after we arrived that there is a only one authorized vendor permitted to set up rental beach chairs and umbrellas for Seaside beach and we had reserved with a different company (which was not allowed).

Great Seaside Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for a family holiday! It is very comfortable for all age groups. The screened porch is spacious and nicely furnished. The kitchen is newly remodeled and well equipped. The 4 bedrooms and baths are nicely spaced so everyone has plenty of privacy. We all enjoyed the beach and swimming pool as well as all the stores in town. Lovely spot!

Forever Mary is Forever Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to get away! We have stayed here 2 times and hope to keep coming back. It has a well equipped kitchen that has been beautifully remodeled, comfortable beds, 4 full bathrooms, and plenty of space. Our favorite place is the screened in porch when we weren't in town or at the beach. The beach entry is private and will only allow residents/renters from Tupelo Street to use that portion of the beach which keeps it from getting too crowded. The owner is wonderful to work with, very helpful and a gracious host! Forever Mary is our favorite vacation spot on the Emerald Coast!

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

Our best Seaside experience, by far. The house is so comfortable and charming. And the location is unbeatable. Our family of 6 adults and 1 child had tons of space and privacy. We will definitely be back!

Spring Break 2014

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful spring break at this beautiful house! It is very well kept, and clearly loved by it's family. It was so cool to get to stay in an original Seaside home! Other than the weather being a little chilly, we were able to enjoy the short walk to the beach multiple times a day. The private beach entry made us feel like exclusive VIP guests during a very busy week. This location is superb! Thanks again for renting your house to us. We hope to return in the future!
