Overview

About the property

The Four Seas is a beautiful two story home designed for beachfront living on St. Teresa Beach. The first floor includes three bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, dining, living, screened porch, and shower directly accessible from outside and leading into a bathroom. The second floor has two bedrooms, two baths, kitchenette, dining, living, and screened porch.

The yard is grass and nicely landscaped with a stepping stone walk leading from the house to the beach. A patio under the shade of the trees is midway to the beach - perfect for those who want to enjoy the outside and see the beach, but don't want to be in the sun and sand on the beach.

About John Chason

My family has been coming to St. Teresa since the 1940's and I since I was born (sometime after that). It has been a cherished place for my entire family and I and now we would like you to enjoy it as well.

John Chason purchased this house in 2005

Why John Chason chose Florida North Central

This property was purchased in 1946 by Thomas Chason and has remained in the Chason family ever since. The original house he built was replaced by a bigger house in 2005. This new house is designed to accommodate several family's at once with plenty of common space for large groups but private space for small groups/individuals to be separate.

What makes this house unique

Everyone who comes here says the porch swing with it's view of the water is the most relaxing place in the world!

Perfect location for quiet and solitude

  • 5 of 5

We researched for months for a quiet place to bring our 6 children along with 3 boyfriends to vacation. We certainly found it here. The house exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was well stocked, the bathrooms never ran out of hot water, and the bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. The beach was clean and empty providing us with the opportunity to enjoy and explore. The perks of this location is certainly the kayaking and the shell collecting. Dolphin watching is certainly a daily event. The highlight of our trip was being able to kayak out to where the dolphins were feeding. We sat for 30 minutes just watching them swim around and under our kayak. It was truly amazing for the adult and children alike. We were disappointed with the water quality. There is also lots of sting rays and one member of our party was stung. The owner certainly informed us of this when we arrived and how to treat an injury, but our smaller children were put off in returning to the water. The water is shallow so there is lots of grass that is constantly in the water and washing up on shore. But the low tide is an experience we truly enjoyed. Never having seen that event before it was an adventure collecting shells and other sea creatures during that low tide. Overall, our experience was super for the peace, quiet, and serenity. If you are a fisherman this is also a super place to visit. If you are looking for clear water and waves to ride, this is not the place for you. We truly enjoyed our stay. Thanks to John and his family for making this property available for others to enjoy.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

This beach house and the environment was absolutely perfect! We had a family reunion so there were all ages. Plenty of room to not feel squished, beautiful area. Plenty of beach toys and fishing gear to keep us occupied! Wish we could have stayed forever :) Highly recommend.

BEST PLACE EVER

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at this place. The owner is very kind and you can tell he really does everything to make sure his guests are comfortable and happy. The beach is amazing We saw so much wildlife and there were dolphins jumping out of the water We have never seen that. The screened porches are so relaxing Our little boys loved playing for hours on them and as adults we could sit there on the swings watching them and have a beautiful view of the ocean. Loved the shower that was used to wash off all the sand and the fish cleaning station and the kayaks We used the kayaks every day. Mr. Chason really did think of everything. We will definitely be back. I think we have found our new favorite place

Absolutely Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was spent at this beach house. The house was perfect. You could not ask for a more relaxing place to vacation for a week. The house is spacious and plenty of room for everybody to spread out and have their own space. We kayaked every morning and evening and dolphins were there almost everyday. John has thought of everything you need. We spent most days on the beach; however, the evening of the harvest moon, we had a fire in the fire pit and cooked s'mores. Kitchen is spacious enough that several people could be in there cooking with no problems. Fully stocked with everything you need to enjoy yourselves. Our time on the porch upstairs was relaxing. Grilled out several times. We will return next year.

Roomy Privacy, Indoors and Out!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our anniversary with our two daughters and their families at this beach house the first week of August. The weather was good most of the week, so most of us were on the sand or in the water two times each day. Three families (5 adults, 6 kids below age 14) found this private, natural beach experience to be wonderful that week. The sand is very white; the water is not cold and it is shallow enough for children to play in. When the tide is out, all sorts of sea creatures are visible. Dolphins were usually seen around mid-day. We chose the house because of the 5 bedrooms and 4 baths. The family rooms upstairs and down were roomy, comfortably furnished and pleasantly decorated. The kitchen downstairs and the kitchenette upstairs provided plenty of workspace for different schedules. The cookware was ample as was the stock of spices and paper supplies. All appliances were in good working order, including the dishwasher and the washer and dryer downstairs. The screened-in porches on both levels provided a quiet get-away with a view for reading, meditation, and rest. Thoughtful amenities included a well-stocked toy room, 5 kayaks, a closed-in entrance shower, a closed-in fish cleaning station, several plastic beach chairs, and a fire pit. The owners gave us good directions to the house and greeted us upon arrival, providing both a tour and cookies! They take pride in offering a quality home away from home for their guests as well as their own families. The manager was helpful and responsive to our needs--though we really had none once we arrived. The house was as promised, and so was the service and the beach. A late afternoon on the beach with a blue Gulf backdrop provided us with multiple pleasant family photographs. We can see ourselves returning for another event down the road.

The Perfect Vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

How do I start?

This is our 2nd year at the beach house. We will never go anywhere else!! It was a peaceful, family fun vacation. The house is top notched!! They have thought of everything to make your stay as close to being home as possible. The house is clean, the rooms are comfortable, the beach at your back door, sea life, low tide, and even saw the albino squirrel again this year. They even added more kayaks this year, which were hardly ever on the beach because we kayaked daily with the dolphins!!! We sat directly on the beach, kids played in the low tide, and we talked, read, or sun bathed each day into the evening!! I just can't explain how awesome this area is for us!! Our golfing guys got to play golf and loved the course that is close by. They have books and games for you to use.

The Chanson's did everything possible to accommodate our family, and they are wonderful to work with!! There was even fresh cookies waiting our arrival!!

We will be back next year!!
