Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

'SEALINK' One of the BEST locations in Seaside! This wonderful home, in Seaside proper, is the third house on Odessa Street at the west end of Seaside. 'SEALINK' is only 4 houses north of the beach and 4 houses south of the swimming pool.

With it's quaint picket fence and over-sized wrap around porch, 'SEALINK' offers so many places to relax and enjoy the gulf breezes. On the screened porch, you will find comfortable seating, swing, gas grill, and dining table for just kicking back after a day on the beach or entertaining your family and friends. Even the sound of the rain on the porch roof from an occasional summer shower makes reading a good book read better.

As you enter the house, an expansive foyer with staircase leads to the second and third floors. Beautiful bright beach colors are incorporated into the furnishings and original works of art throughout the house. In addition to the porch, you will find there are many comfortable places to relax. A large living room with wood burning fireplace is full of natural light provided by the many windows just below the ceiling and open rafters. A brick floored atrium at the very center of the house also provides natural light to the kitchen, living room, and master suite located on the first floor. The master suite is furnished with king bed, large dressing room, TV, and shower for two.

A spacious, casual eat in kitchen opens to the living room as well as the back deck. Dining and entertaining al fresco is accomplished from the screened side porch. The kitchen is fully equipped for those gourmet meals. The half bath and laundry room with full size washer and dryer are also located adjacent to the kitchen.

Up the stairs to the second floor are two bedrooms with private baths and TVs. One bedroom is furnished with a king bed and the other with twin beds. The third floor tower room with gulf views boasts two cushy chaise lounges to read a good book or view a movie on the TV with DVD player. The fourth floor covered tower (reached by climbing the ship's ladder) provides a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee as the town awakens or breath taking sunsets and unsurpassed 360 degree views of the Gulf Of Mexico, Seaside, and surrounding areas.

An outdoor shower with hot and cold water is provided on the back deck for easy clean up and sand removal. Bicycles, rafts, coolers, toys, DVD Library, games, and beach chairs are among many things at the home are for your enjoyment.

Come to Seaside and enjoy 'Sealink' . One of the BEST locations on the beach! You will not be disappointed!

About The Owner

Hi everyone,

Very excited to tell everyone that I was recently married in May 2015. We had a beautiful wedding on our own Odessa pavilion and traveled to Paris and Italy for a wonderful honeymoon! We are looking forward to seeing all our great returning guests and meeting new friends.

My husband's name is Steve (in picture) and my new name is now Patricia Diane Girardot.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1996

Guestbook comments from the owner

Crows nest @Sealink. Doing a 1000 piece puzzle. Going to the beach.

Diane, we absolutely loved Sealink. It is so pretty, clean, great location

and love everything about it. The view from the crows nest is

"to die for." Thank you for sharing your stunning cottage.

A Perfect Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We look forward to our annual trip to Seaside all year and have stayed at Sealink each time we have visited. The beach home has everything we need for a week at the beach with our children including towels, beach toys, and bikes. The interior decor has a perfect beach cottage feel and the layout of the house is great for families. We tend to stay in for meals and the kitchen is well appointed for cooking. We really enjoy both the screened in porch for lounging and the tower for taking in the views of the ocean and the surrounding town. The home's location is ideal being a short walk to the beach, pool, and town square. Sealink is the perfect place from which to enjoy all Seaside has to offer such as concerts, theater, shopping, and beautiful walking paths. Diane and Steve are wonderful to work with and we can't wait to return.

Springbreak 2016

We had a super week spending our Spring break at Sealink in beautiful Seaside. The house is fabulous, well maintained and decorated beautifully. A true beach cottage complete with bikes, chairs, beach towels and toys, all the little things that make a trip nice. Everything was perfect and would highly recommend, our family had a fantastic time!

Spring Break Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in Seaside and our stay in Sealink. We had rain 3 of the 7 days and our favorite spot on the rainy days was the 3rd floor lookout to snuggle up with a great book! The house is situated close to the beach, pool and the square. They have beach towels, chairs and toys for use so that is one less thing that needs to be packed. There are also bikes for use at the house 30-A has a wonderful path for biking, walking and running. The kitchen has everything you could think of for cooking and there is a gas grill outside. Restaurants we enjoyed: The Great Southern, Bud & Alley's and the Vue on 30-A were our favorite spots to eat. Dawson's was our go to dessert spot everyday! We hope to come back to Sealink soon! The owner's were very easy to work with and made us feel at home. Thank you Diane and Steve for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Thanksgiving beach trip

  • 5 of 5

Thanksgiving in Seaside is a must. Sealink was the perfect house for our family. We found great running and bike routes right out the front door that were both challenging and scenic. We grilled a turkey on the gas grill and of course watched our favorite footballs games on the large flat screen. But the highlight of the day was ascending to the cupola and watching the sunset. Incredible views of downtown Seaside and the setting sun made for a relaxing time together. We made some fond memories.

Sealink in Seaside

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our week at Sealink. The house is perfectly situated, just a few steps to either the beautiful Gulf beach in one direction or to the family pool in the other. The shops and restaurants of Seaside are just 3 blocks away, an enjoyable stroll or bike ride away. We enjoyed using the bikes that were provided, as well as the beach chairs and toys that were there for our use. The abundance of beach towels was also a huge plus! Sealink itself is a beautiful home, with all the comforts one would need. The kitchen table is large enough to seat the entire family comfortably and there is plenty of seating in the family room for games and conversation. The large screened in porch is wonderful for reading and relaxing. The tower is the perfect place to enjoy the wonderful Gulf breeze and watch the blue/green water of the Gulf. The bedding is very comfortable and completes the entire package for a relaxing and restful getaway. We will certainly plan to visit Seaside again and will look forward to making Sealink our home away from home. Thank you for sharing Sealink with us!

We were lucky enough to come back to Seaside this year and against stay at Diane's lovely home. My two 10 yr olds have been talking about it all year... can't wait to go back to seaside... please mom can we stay in the same house !

We love the fact we can hop on the bikes and get anywhere we need to go - even the grocery store. And yes the beach just across the street. The house is always immaculately clean which I really appreciate being a VRBO homeowner myself. Of course our favorite part of the house is going up to the widows peak and watching the Sunset every evening and looking at the ocean. You would think 10-year-olds would not like doing this. However, they love it and look forward to doing it every night. We have had some of our best talks up there. No iPads, no cell phones, no video games, just enjoying each other's company and listening to the ocean. As you know, accommodations can make a wonderful destination more wonderful or make you wish you were back home. Well the accommodations are "perfect" and help make our vacation more memorable. We can't wait to come back again and consider Sealink our home away from home. Thank you again Diane and Steve for letting us enjoy your wonderful Seaside home!
