What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is located in the more family oriented side of Seaside, where its a bit quieter. The cottage is only about a 4 minute walk from town, and a 50 foot walk to the beach ( only 3 houses off 30A). It sits on the edge of Rosewalk, a central garden court constructed to preserve the characteristics of Florida vegetation, designed by architect/urbanists Robert Orr and Melanie Taylor.

cute treehouse in need of a little TLC

  • 1 of 5

My husband and i originally planned to bring our lab but there would not have been enough room. Just know it's manageable for 2 people, or 1 and dog. Positives - bed is comfy and kitchen works well. Nice washer and dryer and nice outdoor patio. And the TV and internet worked fine. Negatives - makeshift drapery fell off when we sat on the chaise, chaise is only real place to sit, one of the lights over the bathroom sink was out when we arrived and no replacement made it. There was 1/2 roll of TP and paper towel upon arrival. A spare roll of each would have been nice! Other suggestions for owner - a floor lamp next to chaise instead of just overhead light from fans, just put blinds on the window next to the door!, get a coffee pot with an automatic shut-off, and it's due for a patch and paint job. Future renters, this property is in a great location. If you don't care about the things above, are a teenager, and/or don't plan to spend any time there, it will work!

The place was a perfect location for my dog and I!

  • 5 of 5

The house is tucked back in the trees. It almost felt like a tree house!! It was plenty room for my 10 month old lab and I. Although the WiFi wasn't working (true millennial here hahaaa) which led to no TV either. Service isn't good in the house either, but it was a TRUE escape from the tech world! Just what I needed without realizing it! The home owner went ahead and sent someone out to check out the router even after I insisted I was fine! Home owner is quick to respond. We were steps away from the private beach entrance and closer than what I expected to the town of Seaside!! I highly recommend for a solo or couple get away!!

Wonderful location

Location on the cottage was great! You get what you pay for here, and it met our needs for a vacation spot.

We contacted the owner of this property over a month prior to arrival regarding a question we had; we left him a voicemail and sent a message through the HomeAway app and we never received a response from either. Upon arrival, the Cable and Wifi did not work, so we messaged the owner. He stated he would try and get a third party there to fix the issue (no one ever came, and he never provided updates). The night of arrival, we attempted to ride the beach cruiser bikes- one was missing a pedal and the other had 2 flat tires. The owner stated he would rent 2 bikes for us, and again, we never received an update or 2 rental bikes. The third day we were there, the keypad battery went out and we were locked out of the house for over an hour. While we understood this wasn't the owner's fault, and he did call a locksmith to resolve the issue, we texted to let him know we hadn't had breakfast yet and he stated he would text us once the issue was resolved- again, we never heard a word from him. I have never given a bad review even at the worst of places, but would HIGHLY recommend not staying here. My husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary and wished we had booked a different place.

Quiet Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at SweetHaardt. It was perfect for our get away. SweetHaardt could use a little touch up painting on the inside and it would have been nice to have the TV/Cable working, but otherwise it was nice and quiet for what we wanted.

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.
