About the property

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!

Couldn't be better

This property was perfect for our family. The house met all of our expectations and some. The appointments were first class as were the amenities. Everything we needed was there. The owner was caring and sincerely was interested in our comfort. Sealink is close to town center, beach and pool. The Culligan water cooler was a special surprise.

Beyond expectations!!

My family and my sister's family just returned from a fun-filled Spring break week to Seaside, and Sealink was the PERFECT place to stay. We had 4 adults and 4 children and we all a fit very comfortably in the home. Our most favorite thing, hands down, was the screened in front porch. During a rain storm, we sat there for many hours and played cards and listened to music. Again, there was plenty of room for everyone and Diane has lights strung up that really make it special at night. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is well-appointed and the 4th floor tower is super cool. The view from up there is amazing. They also have beach toys, chairs, and bikes for you to ride, which as you know in Seaside is a must-just remember to lock them up!! However, the very best thing about this rental is its location. We did not realize just how close it is to the beach and all of the activities at the Square. Odessa St is very central to the heart of Seaside and we only got in our car 2 times the whole week! The walk to the beach is literally 3 homes. And the pool is 3 homes the other way- it was very nice, by the way! Diane and Steve were VERY accomodating and made sure we were well taken care of. I would rate this home a 10/10!!!! Thanks for letting us make some wonderful memories there!! Amy C. and family

We had a wonderful week in this perfect home!

Everything we needed was there and the view from the tower with our morning coffee was breathtaking.

We walked 3 houses to the beach and pavilion everyday. After the beach, we walked 3 houses the other direction and swam in the heated pool!

The kitchen was perfect for cooking our family breakfast and dinner. Lunch at the square is a nice little walk from the house or beach.

We enjoyed movies together at night and everyone had a cozy spot to relax in the family room. On the third floor there's a perfect spot where our little girl spent hours reading.

We really enjoyed riding the complimentary bikes the house provides as no one has to or wants to drive in Seaside. It was so fun to hop on the bikes for sightseeing or shopping.

No need to overpack. The washer and dryer made it great to wash laundry as we used it.

You'll love this awesome house. It's the perfect family retreat!

We'll miss it, but will be back next year.

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.

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!
