Little Shady, in award winning Seaside, is tucked ever so privately behind Shady Lady, down the footpath in the trees. Little Shady is a one bedroom, two bath, two story beach cottage with hardwood floors and great porches up and down with cozy outside seating. It is roomy enough for four and perfect for two who want a romantic getaway in the charming town of Seaside.
The comfy downstairs living area has a queen sleeper sofa and easy chairs right next to the cute kitchen with full-size refrigerator and stove (no dishwasher) and a bath with shower. Dining area adjoins. Upstairs is a huge, king, master suite with jacuzzi tub and shower and a big porch off the bedroom. Inflatable mattress is provided.
Walking down the many winding footpaths between cottages or riding bikes on the narrow brick streets to see all of Seaside's architectural gems is the way to go in Seaside. And there are so many fun things to do for just the two of you or with your loved ones. Relax on our porches or bask on the prettiest beach in the world. Stroll through the town center and enjoy coffee or drinks at the neat coffee shop. Visit the many great art galleries and quaint gift shops. Take photos of the romantic beach pavilions perched along the dune line. Buy a new hat or T-shirt at the open air market or check out the exotic foods at the famed Modica Market. Just sit and people watch the folks from all over the world. Take a bike ride to Western Lake, one of our fabulous dune lakes found in only seven places in the world. Take your fishing pole or rent a kayak. Watch the sea birds flying overhead. Go to a twilight movie or concert on the grass. Watch the sun go down from the wonderful beach pavilions. Eat an ice cream cone with your contented family and lie back and count the stars in a clear night sky. Lose yourself in the magic of Seaside.
You can rent this cottage with its sister cottage, Shady Lady, if you need room for a larger family.
*Please note this cottage only allows Saturday-Saturday rentals during our high season.

Great location - to beach, to adult-only pool, to family pool, to main center, etc.
For over $400/night, however, property overall is "aged" and some basics were really lacking. For example, the digital cable TV was so pixelated and audio so choppy, it was very painful to watch when just wanted to relax after a great beach day. Service did come by and reprogram after some channels "disappeared", but it did not help. And if you want to bring some blue-ray DVDs to watch? Don't. The DVD players can't play blue-ray. In fact, the downstairs DVD player didn't even have cables to hook up to the TV and the remote was missing a battery. And the DVD player's upstairs remote had batteries that were so corroded it didn't work. And if you like
coffee first thing in the morning, bring your own filters. After a long day of driving to get here, first thing we had to do was go out and by coffee filters as not even one was in the place to get us started. Takeaway: profit vs experience. Not coming back.

We really enjoyed our week in Seaside! Little Shady is a cute guest cottage but it is starting to show its age. Sandpiper was a very easy to work with and was very responsive when we had issues (only one fork in the house, stove burner not working). We did continue to have issues with one of the stove burners after they came and fixed it the first time - we just made do with the other burners.
A couple of things would make Little Shady a 5 star property - a fan on at least one of the beautiful porches (so that you could enjoy the porch even on hot days) and some general updates to the furniture and appliances.
We will definitely consider staying here again!
Thank you for your review and feedback. We have replaced all the silverware in the cottage now and have repaired the stove. All is working perfectly now. We will review updating furnishings as well. Thank you!
So Happy To Be Back
Little Shady is just as special as we remembered. We had so much fun this trip. Our college age sons came with us and we enjoyed every inch of Seaside. Our boys are making plans to come back to Little Shady when school is out this summer. Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us.

We had an AMAZING time at the beach and Little Shady was the perfect resting place! The sunsets were incredible, the water and waves were wonderful and we will be back next year!

We had a great vacation in Seaside. Little Shady was the perfect size for two. Great location to the beach and the town center. We will definitely be back and would stay at Little Shady again.

Nice and Private
Our family loved Little Shady especially the great location two minutes from the beach, town and pools. Town center with shopping, all kinds of food and ice cream and fun activities is wonderful. Morning coffee on the porch and hanging out was a daily event. Sunsets at the beach on Tupelo Pavilion are awesome. Little Shady is so cute and well equipped. Can't wait to come back.
