About Terri Schmidt-Fellner

We are an Atlanta family of five that has been coming to Seaside since the late 80's. Since 2006 we have spent entire summers at Seaside each year. Our three boys have grown up there and now work as Cabana men on the beach when we go down. The boys are 18, 17 and 13.

Terri Schmidt-Fellner purchased this house in 2006

Why Terri Schmidt-Fellner chose Seaside

Our home is perfectly located in Seaside proper. We are right across from the family pool, minutes (2) from the beach, but at the end of a cul de sac so not heavily trafficked with cars. There are so many nice porches all over the house and guesthouse. Also, the guesthouse has a separate entrance so allows plenty of privacy but connects to the main house via the outdoor dining area downstairs and a covered porch leading into the main house kitchen upstairs. The furnishings are fresh and modern, the bathrooms are fabulous and the kitchen appliances are top of the line, Sub Zero fridge and Viking stove. Also, the 2 bedrooms downstairs in the main house have their own compact Sub Zero fridge right in the room.

What makes this house unique

Take It Easy and Relax are perfectly located in Seaside. The houses are are only a 2 minute walk to the beach and only a 5 minute walk to town center in Seaside. At the same time there is little automobile traffic on our street and it is quiet at night. We are at the dead end of the street with a small cul de sac in front of our homes, it makes for a perfect place for kids to play.

Perfect for our large group!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Take it Easy for 4 nights over the Thanksgiving holiday and couldn't have been happier! The house (and guest house) was beautiful, comfortable, and well stocked with kitchen supplies for our Thanksgiving feast for 12 we prepared! It's just a short walk to the lovely Seaside beaches, and their beautiful sunsets. The owner's were quick to respond when we had a small issue with the pool passes (over a holiday mind you!) and overall we had a wonderful stay. We especially liked being at the end of a quiet street as it made for very peaceful evenings. Actually working with the owner over the course of our initial inquiry to our return home was wonderful. They were always quick to answer questions via email, something I truly appreciate.

We had three teenage girls in the sleeping loft (it was a bit small for them but they wanted to be together so they made it work!), one couple each in the first floor bedrooms, two smaller girls in the second floor bedroom, and another couple had the privacy of the guest house.

We enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner on the outdoor picnic tables; a lovely setting enhanced by the overhead lighting and soft music from the surround sound speakers.

Thank you for opening up your lovely home to vacation guests!

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home, guest house and location! Terri was great and prompt in all communication in the reservation process and any questions about the home. The kitchens have great appliances, the home was clean and lots of great porches to choose from. We loved the view from the tower and fantastic outdoor dining favorite! The two outdoor showers were great to get sandy kiddos squeaky clean and we enjoyed the perk of beach towels and beach toys (we haven't experienced in many homes we've rented in Seaside). The house manager was quick to address a small light bulb issue in one of the showers. We've stayed in many homes over the years in Seaside and Take it Easy is hands down the best!

TakeITEasy is the perfect Seaside Home!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an amazing house for a large family or to share with another family, this is the one! The house is absolutely gorgeous and the porches, rooftop outlook, grilling area with large table for family dinners and fully stocked kitchen made this a memorable trip. We have stayed at several Seaside homes in the past and TakeItEasy was hands down our favorite. Terri who owns the house was a pleasure to deal with and made sure everything was perfect for our stay.

Perfect Family House!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented in Seaside for many years and I have to say this was the perfect house for our family. Our grandkids loved the sleeping nook and having the guest house made it perfect for the toddler to take a quiet nap! The location is great...very quiet, a short walk to the beach and the pool is literally across the street. Everything that you could want or need at the beach is there. The entire home has everything to make your stay homey and comfortable. Lots of little extra touches! The owner, Terri, is very friendly and responds quickly to any questions. We will definitely plan on another stay there next summer!

Great House Great Times!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house and situated away from the crowds yet only a short walk to the beach. The accommodations are unique with a great room for family gathering and many small nooks for quiet times as well. The kitchen is well supplied with utensils-we cooked a lot and missed only a couple of things at home. The sleep room for kids was a gem for grandkids, and three baths in the main house meant no lines for cleaning up. The attached guest/apartment was a fun space and provided additional room and a second kitchen!! Little touches we'd not had at previous houses at Seaside including beach towels and beach toys and chairs were a pleasant surprise.The owner was extremely kind and courteous and was a pleasure to work with-she offered to help us when we thought schedule change might mean a change in our plans and actually inquired as to our comfort mid-stay. Would definitely recommend this property to a family or larger group.
