Overview

About the property

In Seaside Proper, Sleeps 12, Close To Pools, Playground & Fitness Center

Situated just north of the town square and in the heart of Seaside, Mint 4 Fun with 5 bedrooms, 5 baths and an enclosed tower room with balcony is where you want to be!

Beware - there are many listings on the internet that claim to be in Seaside, when actually they may be near Seaside, but not in the Seaside community. If you want to be able to use the Seaside amenities (3 community pools, fitness center, tennis, playground), be walking distance to the Seaside town square and amphitheater, and have access to the much less crowded Seaside beach, you must stay in a property that is actually in Seaside!

MInt 4 Fun has large, covered porches on the main floor and second floor. The second floor porch has private entrances from 2 separate bedrooms. All bedrooms have en suite baths.

A tower room with open balcony on the fourth level affords nice views of the gulf and all of Seaside and is a fantastic place to enjoy the sunset or your morning coffee.

The design of this home is architecturally unique.

From the bunk room with a spacious hideaway loft, the 30' cathedral ceilings in the living room, and the close proximity to all the Seaside amenities, you will be amazed with this property!

Mint 4 Fun is just a few steps from the west-end pool and only a couple blocks to the private Pensacola beach pavilion.

We have a large wagon, a rolling cooler, some beach chairs and beach toys for your use.

The Seaside chapel, playground, fitness center, and 3 community pools are all close by.

The completely remodeled kitchen has beautiful granite countertops, glass tile backsplash, stainless appliances and much more.

There are hardwood floors throughout the house and custom plantation shutters for every window.

Of course the powdery white sand and crystal clear ocean is what brings you here, but other highlights of staying in Seaside that you will enjoy are shopping in the many quaint shops, eating at the award winning restaurants, bike riding through town, strolling down the hidden paths or relaxing on the outdoor porches enjoying the fragrant sea air and warm breezes.

Anyone who has ever visited Seaside knows why we are thrilled to own this property!

What makes this cottage unique

There's no bad location in Seaside, but we especially love where Mint 4 Fun is located because we are so close to all the amenities Seaside is famous for.

The Seaside square with all the fabulous shopping and restaurants is a short stroll from our house.

The west end pool is just steps away and the other 2 pools - the Family pool and Adult pool - are also on our street. The fitness center, tennis courts, playground and Seaside Chapel are also right down the street.

The private Pensacola beach pavilion is only 2 blocks from our house and we have a large wagon, a rolling cooler and some beach chairs and beach toys at the house for your use.

With all these amenities being so close and Publix grocery store being an easy bike ride from our house, you will likely not need your car during your entire vacation!

Great location!! Close to beach and center of town.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of Mint 4 fun!! It was literally steps from the center of Seaside and 2 blocks from the beach. The owner was easy to work with and quick to respond.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

It was the best vacation ever!!! Our family had the most amazing time. Such beautiful accommodations in a fabulous community. We ate, drank, rode bikes, did exercise classes at Pure Barre, listened to concerts in the lawn, visited food trucks, shopped, rode a boat to Shell Island, paddle boarded and kayaked , took surfing lessons, and had perfect weather at the beach every day with drinks and food delivered to our beach chairs. Couldn't have been any better!! Thank you!

Perfect house for our group of 12

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 (7 adults, 5 young kids) felt right at home in this wonderful house. The large kitchen and dining area provided great separation from where the various kids were sleeping. Very convenient to the west pool and an easy walk to town and the beach. Owner was very responsive and helpful. We can't wait to go back!

Mint 4 Fun was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during Spring Break 2017, and it was wonderful. The location is great -- just a short walk to the town center, restaurants, and beaches. The owner is very pleasant and helpful. The house is well maintained, very clean, and the layout is great for a large family. The design strikes a nice balance of all the rooms being reasonably close to the entry, yet also provides plenty of private spots to get away from a noisy family for reading or phone calls. We and the kids loved it!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We took an extended vacation in Seaside at Mint 4 Fun with 2 young children and it was perfect! The house is perfectly located to walk into town, walk to the beach or jump on the local seaside / watercolor trails for a run or bike ride. There is no reason to start up your car when everything is steps from the house. Christie was fantastic to deal with in every way and so accommodating making sure that everything was perfect for us. We will return and we will hope to stay at Mint 4 Fun - we can't imagine anything better (and we've been going to Seaside/Watercolor for several years now). Amazing and so happy it was Christie's home!
