Bothy 1 - great for small family with young kids
Bothy 1 is the first floor of a three story townhouse. We rented it at a time when no one had rented the floors above, so I can't comment on the noise potential.
It has a very small galley style kitchen (only one person can be in there at a time,) but it is perfectly functional. It doesn't have a laundry room, but it has a European style washer dryer combo in the kitchen. Kinda weird but it was perfectly OK to wash a few days worth of clothes. We didn't attempt to wash towels or linens in there, but you could have. It would have just taken a couple of rounds as the basket is about half the size of American washers.
The only bedroom is a decent size with a king bed. But the door from the garage only opens about a 60° angle before the door stops at the side of the bed. The master bath has a nice sized shower, but very little countertop Space.
The two bunk beds are in a hall closet in the hall (under a stairway). My boys thought it was pretty cool, but my 5' 3" son had to sleep in the fetal position as the upper bunk is shortened by the stairs.
The second bathroom is functional but my kids complained about the size of the shower and how hard the spray was, so they used my shower. No biggie. It's boys.
The design was modern and appealing. Appliances were new. The amenities incl the two bikes were great. We had to rent a third, but we used the included $240 rental credits to do that.
The location of this unit is amazing. It's on a quiet street literally right behind the shops. It's a very easy walk to the shops and the beach.
Seaside rentals are largely geared towards larger families or multi families, and it's hard to find much for smaller families. This place worked great for the three of us, but I would only recommend the downstairs unit for a couple with no more than two kids under 13 or so.
Bothy 3 - a contemporary, comfy haven in Seaside!
Bothy 3 is a visually stunning, contemporary, comfortable and well-stocked haven in the center of Seaside. Two families lived together with plenty of room, and we entertained another family for dinner where we had 17 total. The space handles groups really well, complete with an awesome rooftop for enjoying sunsets! Thoughtful extras like beach towels, bikes, and one beach chair setup (2 chairs + 1 umbrella) are included.
We appreciate you sharing your experience staying in the Bothy in Seaside along Scenic HW 30-A.

beautiful home, fabulous location
this is a beautiful home and it is in an excellent location...we had two adults and six teenagers...three disappointments for us: 1) it isn't actually four bedrooms...the bunkbeds are in a pantry-sized closet and the top bunk is so small that only a very young child could fit in it which did not work for us so we forced to put one on the sleeper sofa which was 2) a foam pad over springs...very uncomfortable, and most importantly, 3) there are only two air conditioners to serve the three floors of this house...the two masters are on the third floor so to have any type of comfort to sleep at night, we had to set the temperatures uncomfortably cold on the bottom two floors...we also found it necessary to use a fan that was provided to keep the air moving on the third floor in addition to the ceiling fans...granted, it was a pretty hot week but still...again, it's a beautiful, well-appointed home but these were things that kept it from being as comfortable as expected for the price...
Bothy 3 was great!
Bothy 3 was everything that we needed. There were 11 family members (ages 11-68), and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kitchen is fantastic for families who like to cook. We had one minor issue with the icemaker but the maintenance person came immediately and it was repaired.
We appreciate you sharing your vacation experience at the Bothy in Seaside along 30-A.
Like you, our Guests have genuinely enjoyed the location in Ruskin Place in Seaside with it's shops and art galleries as well as restaurants a short stroll away.
As well, the roof deck on the fourth floor offers panoramic views of the town of Seaside and the Gulf of Mexico.
Thanks for choosing Sunburst Beach Vacations for your Beach home and we look forward to seeing you soon.

BEAUTIFUL - LUXURIOUS - INCREDIBLE HOLIDAYS
My recommendation for staying at The Bothy could not be higher.
The property has been finished to the highest standards, with many items either imported or carefully chosen to fit into quite a unique and lovely style. The photographs cannot do the property justice.
Overlooking Ruskington Place, developed to be an artists community offers privacy and also somewhere for the kids to play safely, but is only a minute from the restaurants and shops in seaside. From the roof terrace you can see the Gulf and get a wonderful view across Seaside, we enjoyed a 'Sundowner' or two from that vantage point.
The property is extremely well maintained and is clean, has ample parking.
The beach is a 5 minute walk.
I have recommended The Bothy to friends who have visited and I plan on coming back. This is one not to miss!!
We are so lease that you enjoyed your stay at the Bothy in Seaside along Scenic 30-A. Thanks for staying with Sunburst Beach Vacations.
The Owners have taken great pride in the furnishing and design of the home and from our stand point as the vacation management company, have made it easy for us to work with our Guests on a wonderful and memorable vacation experience.
As you point out, Ruskin Place is a quite and shady enclave of Seaside, but very convenient to the shops and restaurants and the roof deck offers sweeping views of the iconic town.
Thanks again and please come again and stay with us soon!
