Overview

About the property

All that glitters is gold!

Ideally located in the heart of Seaside's Ruskin Place, STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN is the consummate new urban residence. Widely admired and internationally published, this three story residence is a child of the Bauhaus International Modern Movement. Cast in the 1996 movie, 'The Truman Show', the Rubeo Architects sign prop still dazzles the Park entrance at the ground level. The southeast facing pedestrian corner of STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN embraces magical Ruskin Place Artist Colony Park; the two create a perfect and complementary union. With terraces and a roof top garden overlooking the romantically quaint and serene park and gallery adorned promenade, the most astonishing gulf views and sunsets compliment this poetically classic modern sanctuary. STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN is a dream fulfilled for the idealistic artistic soul or the seasoned voyager. You are just steps from the sugar sand beach, boutiques, galleries, the chapel, concerts, restaurants and farmers' markets.

The first floor, filled with bright playful energy and pure happiness, is comprised of a large lounge area and an intimate private bedroom that share a full bath and a convenience bar. The lounge area can easily be transformed to accommodate various functions and needs. There are two queen sized sleeper sofas, flat screen Smart TV, dining/game table, beverage center and ample storage making this area double as a third bedroom. Original mural artwork by Justin Lyons fills the entire north wall of the lounge. Both an east entrance off of the Park and a west entrance from private parking access the ground level arrangement. The colorfully modern private bedroom is outfitted with a double bed and another Smart TV.

The two story high glazing of the second level living area forms a retractable screen with subtle shifts in park panoramas. Or, if you desire to close the cascading sailcloth drapes, the space then becomes a thrilling private retreat. With STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN landmarked as the spiritual and physical pinnacle of Seaside, it is one of the sturdiest and most precisely constructed buildings on the Gulf Coast. Exclusive and new to the rental market, STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN is fully furnished with signature iconic modern pieces from Knoll, Herman Miller, Aida, Eames, Foscarini, Sakuya, Alivar, Breuer, and Saarinen. The dynamic, yet meditative second level living, kitchen, dining and powder bath spaces are introspectively seductive. Staircases link the second level on the southwest side to the Park and Gallery Promenade and down the west side to the Residence's private parking court.

The third level embraces the master bedroom (with king bed) and bath suite as the ultimate enclave of 1950's posh modern, pulling hue tones from our alluring Gulf waters. Breathtaking sunset views are a calming and seductive joy from the suite's western terrace.

House was stunning and beautiful decor and artwork but very comfortable and livable for families.

  • 5 of 5

Chrissy made our trip perfect from start to finish. The house was exactly as pictured but the WOW factor was even better. The location is close to everything in Seaside, just steps from Modica Market, the beach and the shops but remarkably quiet at the same time. We had an almost instant reply to one question we had during our stay. The house is one of the most incredible looking houses in Seaside but was still very comfortable for the four children. The roof top deck and "stairway to Heaven" are obviously huge selling points and many breakfasts and evenings were spent up enjoying the panoramic view of the ocean and the surrounding towns. Stunning house from top to bottom and a great place to stay for vacation.

One of a kind!

  • 5 of 5

Chrissy was fantastic, super responsive and made our trip easy. Truly one of a kind place to stay, really awesome property and location. Only criticism might be that the bedroom shades are really cool, but translucent, so the bedroom is very bright in the early morning! Overall, five stars across the board.

Great House, Great Location, Great Views!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented this house for a weekend while in Seaside for a wedding and it was perfect! The space is wonderful, the tall windows and high ceilings are luxurious. I stayed in the master bedroom which had a lovely porch and connected to the roof-top patio. The location was close to the town center and an easy walk to the beach. When you walk on the roof, you can see views of the beach and the surrounding neighborhoods and towns miles away. I highly recommend you rent this as your seaside getaway. Laura, the new property manager, is great and so easy to work with. She made this stay a breeze and even helped me out when I accidentally left my dress hanging in the upstairs closet (!!!). So, seriously, don't look anywhere else. It's fantastic.

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several properties throughout Seasode (6). This location is amazing. The rental is ultra chic and provided everything we needed for our stay. Quiet at night but in the heart of the town. Laura was absolutely the epitome of professionalism and made sure our stay was everything that we had hoped for. I am booking our next stay here. Couldn't have asked for a better week.

Beautiful aesthetic but...

  • 2 of 5

The home is unique and beautiful with a perfect location but,........I am someone that wants it COLD inside when it is blazing hot outside. I understand the home has huge Windows but the home is VERY hot inside even with the AC turned to 70. The 3rd floor was stifling hot 24/7. We all slept in the bottom common room because it was the only room that got cool. For the price of this house I expected better. I will not rent this home again.

Owner's Response: At that time we did not know there was an issue with the HVAC unit. Also we were unaware of any complaints, until after the guest checked out. We did correspond with this guest and offered the following: Hello We're glad to hear that your trip was enjoyable. Also, we appreciate the feedback and will be looking into the HVAC system. We would like to extend an offer of 1 free night if you should like to stay with us again (with a 3 night minimum stay, no date restrictions, cash redemption not applicable; however, we will agree to transfer the offer with prior arrangement from you). We go above and beyond to ensure our guest enjoy the stay and everything is in working order for them. Contact numbers and emails are always left with the guest for any problems or concerns that they may have. Thanks,

Seaside is the perfect place to stroll around and take in the sights. Rent a bike and cruise the miles and miles of bike path up and down 30A. Stop for a bite to eat or drink at any of the numerous restaurants/bars located in and around Seaside Village. Vacation never seemed so easy!
