We just wanted to let you know that we LOVED our vacation at Shutters. It was just perfect. We went from pool to beach to pool back to beach! Location was really nice and we had perfect weather. The atmosphere at Shutters could not be better. It is charming as well as comfortable. The decor is wonderfully tasteful - you don't miss a beat. Every thing you needed for cooking grilling and relaxing was provided. One can see the personal pride and love you have for your special place. Enjoyed meeting your family through your pictures. Thank you again for sharing your gem of a beach house. We will recommend it to friends as well as make a swift return as soon as we get the dates squared away. Everyone was giddily and only too sad to leave.

Enjoy a relaxing, sun filled vacation at 'Shutters by the Sea.' Our beautiful, four plus bedroom house is located just one half mile from the charming town of Seaside Florida.

'Shutters' boasts all the style and architectural detail of a Seaside home, for about half the price.

The main house has three bedrooms plus a third floor tower room with futon. The Guest House is a very spacious, yet private residence with bed and bathroom, living room and morning kitchen. In all, you’ll enjoy over 3300 square feet of interior living space and 2200 square feet of wrap-around porches and patios. All beautifully landscaped with indigenous plantings, swaying palm trees, and your very own 20 foot x 20 foot private heated pool. Best of all, you’re just 100 yards from the sugary white beaches, and turquoise blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

About Michael Mason

Beverly & Michael Mason have been coming to the Seaside/30-A area since 1994. In 2002 we bought “Shutters by the Sea” and began our beach house rental business. But before we were owners, we were renters just like you. Over the years we’ve stayed in a few nice rental homes, and some pretty bad ones. Houses where all the furniture is threadbare, the wood floors are completely worn, none of the flatware matches, and there’s not enough cookware to make a full meal. WE CAN’T STAND THAT! From day one we vowed to always keep Shutters in top shape, and thoroughly cleaned after each rental . Today, a full 30% of each rental goes toward maintenance, cleaning and annual upgrades. That’s one of the reason our business has been so successful with almost half our guests returning each year.

Michael Mason purchased this house in 2002

Why Michael Mason chose Seagrove Beach

We came down looking to buy a private (non rental) second home, but as soon as we saw Shutters we knew it was the one. It had a perfect layout, a great pool and deck area, and was so close to the beach. The only problem was it was twice as much as we were planning on spending. Then I had the idea of buying this home as a rental property. We've never looked back. One of the best decisions of our lives as we have provided so many memories for our family and countless others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As much as we encourage our guest to come to this

web site and add a comment, so far none have

responded. We DO have a guest book in our house

which many, many people have signed and judging by

their comments they have throughly enjoyed staying at

Shutters by the Sea. Below I have transcribed some of

our Guestbook comments and enterred them here. If

you would like to view scans of our actual guestbook

and see these same comments in the handwriting of

the people who enterred them, please go to

shuttersbythesea(.)com, and click on the Guests link.

Thanks you for looking at Shutters.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time staying in this area and it did not disappoint. The home is in a great location: extremely close to the beach with an cean view and close to Seaside. The house was very spacious, clean and has a private pool (which was not the small "wading" pool you typically find). The owners were great to work with and very accommodating. We definitely will be back.

Beautiful house, wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to 30A for many years and this was the best house we've rented! Michael was very helpful and made the renting process very easy! The house is beautiful and very clean. It felt like a "home away from home". It is very spacious with lots of room and the attached guest house is wonderful. The pool is absolutely beautiful and a great size. The location is perfect, being right across the street from the beach was perfect. You're close enough that if you forgot something its no problem to run back to the house. You are right down the street and a quick bike ride from Seaside which is perfect. I could go on and on. We had a wonderful vacation and will definitely be coming back. Thank you Michael!

Wonderful Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our June, 2016 week-long stay at Shutters by the Sea was fantastic. The home was everything, and more, that we were anticipating based on the VRBO listing. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the home when we arrived, and how "renter-friendly" the home is --- it has practically everything that we needed! Perry, and the property management team were excellent! Perry did a great job of introducing us to the home upon our arrival, and answering all of our questions about the home, and the Seaside community.

There are too many favorites about this home, and our vacation to list. But, besides the very close proximity to the beach, we really enjoyed our time in the back-yard pool, and evenings on the top deck --- beautiful views. Many thanks to the Mason family for sharing this home with us. We are already planning a return next year!

This is our second time at Shutters By The Sea. Each visit has been wonderful. The porches are wonderful. This time we had three babies 2 and under. We could fence them in on the second floor and they could run, play and be safe while the adults had their morning coffee. The private pool is always fantastic; enjoyed by all. The many trees surrounding the home allow for so much privacy. There are so many places to go to have privacy. The 3rd floor room with the VCR children's tape was an added plus. This was a time for the children to wind down before sleep. The bike riding was so much fun. Riding to Rosemary beach was a great time. We rented our bikes from Big Fish and they were very accommodating. The 3rd floor deck was enjoyed as well. This home is perfect for a family. The kitchen has everything you need and the home is so accommodating for babies/toddlers. Their are many stairs but the babies were very obedient and waited for the adults to assist them. The location is fabulous. The beaches are beautiful and just cross the highway and you're there. Now that we've been twice, it's like going home. Michael has always been easy to work with . I would recommend this house to any family who wants to enjoy being together but also need their space. It's fabulous.

Every aspect of our trip was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Shutters By the Sea. We went with another family, who also had a 7 and 10 year old. The house is beautiful and in an ideal location. We walked across the street to the beach every day, then rode bikes into Seaside and other nearby restaurants. (The owner's suggestion for the Fried Grouper Sandwich was spot on! It is a 'must'). My favorite part was the location. I like to be just slightly away from crowds. This is the best of both worlds. We had some quiet time, but could walk or ride bikes into Seaside in just a few minutes.

The home is PERFECT! With 8 people total... We had more than enough space to spread out when we wanted to. It is so well appointed and had everything we needed.

I felt so well prepared for our vacation. The owner sent a very comprehensive document with tips regarding the home, restaurant suggestions, etc. That came in so handy for us "First Timers". The owners very clearly love this property and are extremely attentive.

I cannot say enough about this home, the location, and the owners. We will definitely be back and look forward to making more memories at Shutters by the Sea!
