About this property

In Seaside "Fish Tales" Private laid back location steps to the beach!

Fish Tales at 39 Rosewalk in Seaside is a darling cottage with its funky collection of all kinds of fish and folk art. It sits in the trees on one of the most private streets in the picture perfect town of Seaside, Florida (the little Town seen in the movie, The Truman Show). With a wonderful tower view of the clear, luminous ocean, this shabby chic cottage is steps from the best of all beaches and the center of Seaside with its award winning restaurants, art galleries, gift and clothing shops, open air market, book store, coffee and ice cream shops, and the famed gourmet Modica Market.

Fish Tales is on one of the many walking paths and is only a half block from swimming pools, fitness center, tennis courts, children's playground, croquet and basketball courts, and bike rentals.

Our Cottage with its pickled wood floors has an open living area with vaulted ceiling, a brand new love seat and 40" flat screen television, a window seat for relaxing and napping and porches on the front and back. The front porch sits in a treed park and has comfy chairs for reading and visiting after a day in the sun at the beach. The galley kitchen with new oven and newly redecorated adjoining dining area for six is the perfect space to enjoy a couple of your beach dinners in . The downstairs bedroom offers a daybed with trundle that comfortably accommodates 2 with new bed, mattresses, and bedding. There is a flat screen TV in this room with DVD capabilities only (perfect for kids!). Just off this downstairs bedroom is the full bath with claw foot tub and shower. There is an additional shower outside as well.

The upstairs master suite offers a queen bed with additional full bed raised a couple of steps. This raised space is perfect for reading or watching TV and can even provide additional sleeping space, if need be. All bedding is new (January 2016). A flat screen TV, love seat, and closet space will ensure you have all the comforts of home at this beach getaway. A few steps up in the tower room with game table and seating for 4, you will see fabulous views of sunsets, gulf, and the famous Seaside rooftops.
*Please note we automatically include the cost of swim and fitness passes to our Seaside reservations. This charge is optional with Sandpiper Vacation Rentals and listed as part of the “resort fee” in VRBO’s cost breakdown. The cost for this cottage is $47/day. Please call us if you would like to remove this charge after booking.

Seaside is a beach town with an old fashioned feel, lots of white picket fences, and winding footpaths. There are activities almost too numerous to mention. There are twilight concerts and movies on the grass, bike rides on the narrow streets, dancing at Bud and Alley's, a different, gorgeous sunset every night, yoga, tennis, croquet, wine festivals, live theater, frolicking on the beach, Camp Seaside, Kids Night Out, long peaceful walks, crabbing in the Gulf, a visit to the pristine, white Chapel, searching for shells, eating ice cream cones, swimming and floating in the crystal, clear water. Nearby are golf courses, miles of bike paths, fishing, kayaking and canoeing in dune lakes. Those lucky enough to find Seaside come back again and again.

*Please note this cottage only allows Saturday-Saturday rentals during our high season.
**All Sandpiper managed properties now come with 2 complimentary bikes**

Great Spit
We loved our stay at Fishtales. The location is perfect when traveling with younger children. Easy walk to the beach and to town. The place is simple and was great for a weekend trip.

Great place
We have stayed here before. It is very close to the shops and restaurants and also the beach. We park and walk everywhere. I wish this house had a different shower- it's hard to get in and out of and it doesn't have a lot of shelves for shampoos and soaps.

A Little Slice of Heaven
What a time we had in Seaside. This was our first time in Seaside and my wife already stated this is where we will go from here on out. As far as Fish Tales, it was a cute little cottage located perfectly for the beach and walkable to the center square. In fact, once we parked the car, we didn’t move it. This is a place we would rent again.

Not that impressed
Roof leaked next to the bed upstairs when raining. Squirrels were living between the inner and outer roof. Although it had a parking space getting in and out of there was a pain. We will return ti Seaside but will not be staying at Fishtales.
