About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

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.

Beach chairs, toys, and floats are in cottage for your use.

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** Amenity passes are available for a fee of $27/day for 4 passes (additional passes are $5/day).**

Such a Fun Cottage!

We had a great time at Fish Tales in Seaside. This cottage is so cute and fun. Has everything you need and three TVs. We'll be back soon and hope Fish Tales is available so we can stay again.

Great Location - Cute Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Seaside in Fish Tales cottage. The cottage was clean and newly redecorated, in the best location and so cute. We were just a few steps from the beach and a short walk to town, play ground, restaurants and Modica Market. We especially enjoyed time on the porch in the park full of wonderful trees. So peaceful! Having the bikes was a plus. We highly recommend Fish Tales. Thanks for a great vacation in Fish Tales.

June 2016 Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our small family loved the Fishtales house. It was very clean and the location could not be beat! Plenty of room for a family 4-6 without being overcrowded. The house is equipped with everything you need to make you feel at home. Thank you for sharing your place!

Updating Needed

  • 3 of 5

I let a month pass to digest our trip without being to overly critical. Negatives, the place needs updating. Nothing major, $50 Home Depot fan that doesn't squeak and moves air better upstairs, downstairs cushions are well past their prime, downstairs bed a little misrepresented (it's sideways), toilet has a hard time with just TP. A little too much furniture downstairs gives it a cluttered feel. Perhaps a larger tv somewhere (I think they were about 17"). Positives, location to town square is phenomenal. Trek to the beach and pavilion use is awesome, ten minutes or less on foot with wagon! Nestled in a magnolia grove keeps it relatively quiet. Crows nest has a great view for breakfast. If you're just needing a place to rest since most of your time is spent on the go in Seaside, you'll be set.

We had a fantastic weekend at "Fish Tales." The weather was beautiful, the house was perfect and our family left rested and relaxed. The customer service was great, we noticed the attention to detail! We will vacation here again, hopefully sooner rather than later!
