SEACLIFF COTTAGE! PRIVATE POOL! BEACHES, SAND DUNES & BOARDWALKS!

Seaside House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Lazy Summer Days! Crisp Fall Nights! 'Old Florida' at its best!

SEACLIFF COTTAGE is a 1-story custom-built wooden home. Nestled among the pines and magnolias, the cottage is located in quiet Seagrove Beach, less than one mile from Seaside Village and Watercolor. A leisurely 3 to 5 minute stroll (200 yards) down a peaceful country (gravel & sandy) lane brings you to the boardwalk access to our BEAUTIFUL GULF BEACHES {Please see our PHOTOS and our wonderful VIRTUAL TOUR). To complete this idyllic vacation setting is a BEAUTIFUL BRAND NEW PRIVATE POOL to enjoy in your own backyard!

Spectacular sunrises or sunsets can be enjoyed from the top of the boardwalk as you descend from the sand dunes down the steps to the sea! The sugar white sands await with its gentle surf which makes swimming and surfing possible for children of all ages! Come for the beaches - Stay (and return again and again) for the restful sense of community life in Old Seagrove Village.

Our cottage is family-friendly. We love children! With three bedrooms and two full baths, the cottage sleeps eight (including one fold-a-way). Each of two bedrooms has a queen bed and the third bedroom has three twin beds. A portacrib is also available for the baby! The cottage features four TVs (with family cable),four DVDs, a game chest for the kids, and an exchange library for all. The cottage is now WIFI accessible -- so bring your laptop and 'surf' the net --- as well as the ocean! Plan your day at the beach while relaxing on the SCREENED back porch and/or RELAX around our private pool (to the sounds of our mini-waterfall)

The cottage has eight bicycles for our guests' use (26 inch). Please bring your own bike helmets -- and naturally ride at your own risk. You can rent children's seats at the bikeshop down the corner if needed. Riding along the protected bike path which follows all of Scenic 30A is beautiful -- you can bike into Seaside within 10 mins from the cottage. OR enjoy the more pristine trail around Eastern Lake with its beautiful boardwalk over miles of dunes. Let the kids walk to the local pizza parlor or select a movie at the video store.

A BRAND NEW PRIVATE 14 x 28 POOL is in your own backyard! Pool has a salt chlorinator. Relax and plan your next day outings while listening to the gentle spray from the pool's mini 'waterfall' fountain!

Seagrove Beach is an 'old world' beach village. Step back in time and eat at the old Seagrove Market/Cafe or visit many of the regionally renowned restaurants (e.g., Borago, Angelinas, Seagrove Market,, Thirty-One A Restaurant, & Enzios). Explore the night life (Grayton Beach's famed Red Door; Seaside's Bud & Alleys; Seagrove's '723.' ).

Great, affordable house!

  • 5 of 5
The house was great, with a pool in the backyard. The house is open-concept with a big kitchen, and living room. 2 king beds, and three twins, so it sleeps at least 7 people. We were 9 people, including two kids under 2 years old. Everything is provided, you name it. One of the reasons why we loved it so much, and it wasn't stale like most other rental homes.

The fridge could have been bigger, but would obviously be fine if you are planning to eat out. We brought kids, so we decided to eat at home most days.

The house was great, but there is room for improvement, here are a few things:
- In need of new, comfortable, living room furniture. The existing furniture is not very cozy.
- The fridge door was hitting the island. You can't open the door all the way. This should be fixed, or a new fridge bought.
- Would be nice to have a shower with a handle (in addition to the static, mounted, shower heads)
- TV in the living room could be bigger, perhaps with some external speakers or a nice sound bar.

Girls' Weekend Perfection

Girls' Weekend Perfection
  • 5 of 5
Seacliff Cottage was the perfect place to host our girls' weekend. Five college friends enjoyed spending time together and catching up. The Cottage was well appointed and had everything we needed. The beach access was within walking distance as well as several incredible restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed the location and being tucked away off the main highway. It was quiet and made sleeping in and relaxing very enjoyable. The pool was beautiful, but the weather didn't cooperate so we didn't get to enjoy any water time. Another trip might be in order just to be able to float in the pool! We couldn't ask for a better trip! Thank you for a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you all (5) enjoyed your extended "weekend REUNION" at the cottage! College roommate reunions really are very special! We think our cottage and our area is "very special" too ! Seagrove Beach is a small residential "old world" beach community -- immediately adjacent to Seaside and Watercolor. Our location, at the end of our country lane, makes our cottage both quiet and intimate -- yet just a few minutes away from all the action! Our beautiful backyard pool makes visiting and recalling "ole times" a truly private experience. Best of all, the cottage is just a short 3 to 5 minute walk, directly down our block, to the MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACHES anywhere! Please come back again!

Truly lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a super week staying at this cottage. It has a lovely spacious feel, is very well appointed (the photos are entirely accurate). We especially appreciated the location - within a short walk to the beach (including for our young kids of 3, 6 and 7), but also felt very private and secluded. And also just a couple of minutes drive or 10 minute cycle to Seaside and Watercolor for restaurants etc.

We felt this was also a perfect time of year to visit - the beaches and restaurants were busier enough to have some ambiance but also quiet enough that there was little or no wait to get a table.

Have to admit the pool temperature was fairly brisk but we did still use it a bit. The beach pulled us more and the water was beautifully warm but not too warm, perfect.

Ann and Scott were also very friendly and helpful - they gave us great detailed information, offered to answer any questions we had. Would not hesitate to recommend this place!

Perfect for the family looking to be close to the action but far enough away for a bit of privacy

  • 5 of 5
we had a wonderful time on our recent trip to seagrove beach and our stay at seacliff cottage. we have three kids and the pool was the PERFECT addition to our vacation. we spent the mornings at the beach, came home for lunch, and let the older kids swim in the pool while the baby napped. it broke up the day in the perfect way. the owners have thought of everything....games, books, beach toys, towels, umbrellas and chairs....the house was clean and tidy with plenty of items in the kitchen for dining at home. we used the charcoal grill several times as well. we appreciated all of the restaurant tips/recommendations as well as the menus. while you do have to cross the often busy 30-A to get to the beach, it's still a very easy walk to the water--either straight ahead or down a bit to get to a handicap accessible ramp (great for our stroller!) we would definitely return!

Spring Break 2013

  • 5 of 5
We loved the cottage! Personally we were hoping for warmer weather but knew we were taking a chance going in March. Our neices and nephew loved the pool, but it was just too cold to get in...we spent most of our time sitting around it, it was beautiful though. We cooked alot at the house rather than going out and we loved how well stocked the kitchen was, however we were a little disappointed to find out that the grill was charcoal. That may have been stated in the property amenities, but we missed it if so. The only complaint we did have was the furniture in the living room, there were 7 of us and not enough seating for everyone.

Annual Summer Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The best vacation we've had so far while visiting the Emerald Coast. We had a house full and never felt crowded. We chose Seacliff Cottage because of the private pool and proximity to the Beach. The pool is awesome! The beach is just a short "hop skip and a jump" from the front door. We did not walk to the beach very often due to having an infant, but the public entrance with ramp leading down to beach was just a short drive. We loved it and plan on returning next summer!!!
