About the property

1 bedroom studio apartment close to the beach.

Sweethaardt is perfect for sweethearts. This cozy retreat is neatly tucked away behind its main house, Mabel Haardt Cottage. It is located on Tupelo st, Seaside's first street. It is located in the back of the MabelHaardt Cottage, formerly the founder of Seaside's own home. This one bedroom cottage provides lots of privacy snuggled in a cozy abundance of trees. It is a very quiet location perfect for one person or a couple. The 2nd floor bedroom has a double bed. The downstairs provides a galley kitchen and a charming cozy living/dining area with a love seat sofa and a full bath. The cottage has a front deck with two teak rockers to enjoy as well.

Wonderful location in a perfect setting.

  • 5 of 5

House is small but has everything needed to enjoy the best of Seaside. 3 minute stroll to downtown Seaside and two minute walk to the beach.

Lovely Seaside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at the Sweethaardt Cottage! The guest house was just as cute and cozy as we expected it to be! The location is perfect! About two houses down from 30A and directly across from the beach access. We didn't even ride our bikes when we went to the beach because it was so close! We did ride our bikes to the town center, but could've easily walked there too! Seaside is the perfect little beach community and this cottage is perfect for two! Owner was very responsive and accommodating to our requests. Highly recommended!

You get what you pay for

The property was cute and quaint and relatively inexpensive. The 2 biggest issues were the mildew smell throughout and very uncomfortable bed and sofa. The location was ideal!

Exceptional cottage for 2 steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The Sweethaardt Cottage was a perfect place for my girlfriend and I to relax and enjoy a peaceful week at the beach. We couldn't ask for a better location and there are bikes included with the rental so you can explore the area a bit. We spent most of our time at the beach and this was the perfect place to rest our heads and keep our belongings. There is a brand oven and stovetop as well so we were able to make some meals and save a little money on food. Will definitely be back and renting again!

Cozy, charming, quiet, & near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained cottage that provides what you need in a small space. We spent most of our time at the beach or walking around Seaside/Watercolor. Would love to rent it again!

Quaint and convenient, but service non-existent

  • 2 of 5

Good location, a minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to Seaside Central. House is showing it's wear and tear and needs updating. Overall can't really complain about the property.

The service from management/concierge/owner, whomever is supposed to be running this place... It didn't exist. Tried multiple times to get touch with someone regarding the fact we only had one bike and it had flat tires. One phone number out of service, one phone number rang infinitely and the other was a number to reservations whom could provide zero help. Needless to say we didn't ride bikes, which is very disappointing considering one of the reasons we go to Seaside is for the bike paths and exploring on bikes.

Don't recommend this place and wouldn't stay there again.
