Seaside Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom/2.5 Bath, Beachfront, Oceanfront, Gulf Views, Sleeps 6-7

Ramsgate is a newly renovated, beachfront, two-level townhouse on the Gulf of Mexico in Seagrove Beach, Florida. Two miles to Seaside, but half the price. Bike to Seaside in 10 minutes, or Rosemary Beach in 30 minutes on the nearby bike path.

Truly one-of-a-kind, Ramsgate is a classic beach fourplex with character. Located at the end of a dead-end street, Ramsgate is just three hundred yards along the beach from Eastern Lake, one of South Walton's rare coastal dune lakes. Eastern Lake's tidal inlet is a fun place for children to play and we've spent entire days there finding crabs, chasing minnows, and digging in the sand cliffs formed by the outlet.

With its expansive gulf views, large decks, and unequaled beach access, Ramsgate delivers the perfect getaway for any beach bum at heart. The surf lulls you to sleep at night, and the sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. There are gulf views throughout the unit so you always feel connected to the water and beach life. Keep an eye out for dolphins.

The first floor houses a newly renovated open kitchen with a beverage bar, dining area, and living room which opens to an oversize main deck overlooking the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. From the main deck you can keep an eye on the kids playing in the soft white sand, or walk down the deck stairs to join them. Deck furniture includes a teak table holding an 11 foot market umbrella, comfortable sling chairs, and two pairs of bar chairs -- the preferred seats for sitting at the railing and soaking in the beach ambiance. The main deck also includes a large charcoal grill so you can cook dinner while you watch the sunset.

Inside, every room on the first floor has unimpeded views of the gulf, including the fully stocked kitchen, so you can grab a snack or prepare a meal and never miss a minute of the view. The dining table seats six, the counter sits four. The living room has a leather sofa with a pull out queen size mattress, comfortable armchairs, and a large flat-panel television with media center. And there's a third bathroom on the first floor.

The second floor has two bedrooms. The master bedroom and bath are newly renovated. The master bed is an extra comfortable king size, and an eight-foot sliding glass door opens to a private balcony with more vistas of the beach and the gulf.

The second bedroom includes a queen-size bed and a set of bunk beds with ship-style sconce reading lights for each bunk. A second full bathroom rounds out the second floor.

The Entry Level has covered parking for two cars - sand toys, beach chairs and beach umbrellas for your convenience. Your kids will love to dig through all the toys and goodies.

Ramsgate shares two community pools with Summers Edge, a complex just landward of Ramsgate. Both pools are just a couple of houses away. One pool is heated, the other is an infinity pool with partial shade.

When you vacation at the beach, don't you really want to stay ON the beach? Of course you do! Well you can not get closer to the surf than Ramsgate.

About Len Schneider

Bonnie and Len grew up in the midwest and lived for a time in Colorado before moving to Atlanta. Most of our free time was spent in the mountains and we rarely saw the ocean. After moving to Atlanta, we were close enough to two coasts to visit frequently, the Gulf coast and the Atlantic. Our first year in Atlanta we visited Seaside on a company retreat and thought it was incredibly beautiful. After our children were born we started visiting again on family trips and it felt as if we were coming home.

Len Schneider purchased this townhome in 2003

Why Len Schneider chose Seaside

After a few family visits to 30A, Ramsgate just happened to be for sale and it stood out from all the other properties on the market. Ramsgate is a special place for us, and we try our best to make it special for every guest too. While we can't be here full time, we visit as often as we can and, in between visits, we love to hear from our guests about their experiences. It's almost like being there ourselves.

What makes this townhome unique

Ramsgate is a little slice of paradise. It's unique, it has a character of its own, and we've tried to add some of our own personality to it through the years. For our family it's a perfect size in a perfect location. We hope it is for yours too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

GUESTBOOK COMMENT:This was a great experience for me and my son. We are sorry to leave and are already planning on when we can come back. The house was great, the view, everything. Thanks for thinking of the amenities - we wanted for nothing.

This property provided the perfect last vacation spot for our family of 3, before our second child is born next month! You can't beat being ON the beach! The place was stocked with all the beach toys your kids could need plus plenty of chairs. Inside the house was the perfect blend of being nicely updated but not to the point that you'd be worried about your child breaking something/ messing something up. The deck is fantastic. You can sit there with the monitor on while the kids are napping and still be at the beach. The kitchen has everything you need. So nice to have a washer and dryer right there. The location was perfect for us - minutes away from grocery, lots of restaurant options and the fun and touristy Seaside attractions but just off the beaten path enough to be quiet. We will go back as a family of 4.

Great January Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great January Getaway to Seagrove and this property was the perfect place. Just us and our two boys. My favorite part about this condo is that it is literally right on the beach! No dunes, no long Boardwalk, so views are fabulous! We enjoyed the empty beaches for walking and running, rode bikes every day, and ate a lot of great seafood. The property is clean and well maintained, furnished very nicely--and the beds are even comfy which almost never happens at a rental!

Owner's Response: We also eat a lot of seafood when we are there. One time we tried Old Florida Fish House just on the other side of the Eastern Lake Bridge and their red snapper was good. One time we made a really good shrimp scampi with fresh shrimp from Goatfeathers and whole wheat linguini and ate it on the deck with the sun going down. Yumm! So glad you liked the beds, and thanks for the comments!

Snow Bird Escape to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family spent winter break at the best spot on the Gulf. I spent most of my time on the massive deck overlooking the ocean reading books and sipping wine as we watched the sun melt into the horizon. We had a bird's eye view to look for wildlife (dolphins) out on the ocean and to people watch. We could hear the sound of waves splashing on the beach from all rooms of the condo when the windows were open. We used the bikes to explore the parks and the quaint towns of Seaside and Watercolors. We enjoyed exploring all the different 1950s style RVs in Seaside selling food that can packed for a picnic lunch at the beach. Our favorite art gallery is called Fusion Glass Art Gallery. Sea life comes alive in glass and in mosaics, so cool. For New Year's Eve we gathered our blankets and lawn chairs and enjoyed the music from the band shell in Seaside under the stars. At the stroke of midnight a fireworks display over the beach brightened the sky. I could not think of a better way to bring in the new year. The condo is set up for families equipped with games, music, and movies.....so we disconnected from our technology and spent fun family time playing board games. Since we did not even want to leave our little slice of heaven, we spent most nights cooking dinners in the well stocked kitchen with all the utensils, spices, and small appliances for baking and cooking. When we walked down to the beach for sunset, a couple approached us wanting to know if we owned the condo because they were very envious that we had such easy access to the beach and a huge deck. They were staying at another condo in Seagrove that was small with no direct access to the beach. We are so happy we choose Ramsgate over other choices. We will return next winter to our little slice of heaven on the gulf.

Owner's Response: I love Fusion Glass too. Seaside is always fun for browsing, shopping, and people watching. And those food trailers are the best. I like the one with the little barbeque sandwiches! Thanks for the review, and we look forward to your next visit.

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Been to Seagrove many times, first time to at this condo. Was expecting chilly weather and bundling up for beach walks. Instead we got temps in the high 60s first part of the week, sunshine, beautiful, just beautiful.

Early bird special at The Seagrove V was great. Also did the same at old standby Cafe 30A. Excellent. Even cooked in a few times and the kitchen turned out to be our favorite place. Drove over to Pier Park for a movie night.

The best thing was the view, the beach, and deck. Have stayed gulf front multiple times, but there was something different. Place is close to the water and the beach is right there under the deck. Pictures are pretty much the way it looks. Would recommend to friends, and would return if we can get in again.

Owner's Response: Bonnie and I originally said we bought this place for the deck and view, and the townhouse came along for the ride :). On the pictures, we try to be as accurate as possible but I should mention we just repainted the guest bedroom to match the rest of the townhouse, and there are some new armchairs in the living room not currently shown. Other than that, what you see is what you get!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better!!

  • 5 of 5

Well my family and I have stayed at Ramsgate a few times now and everything is the most amazing, comfy and inviting place you can dream of right in the heart of Seagrove . It is right on the water and I mean right on the water. You can smell the saltwater when you wake up and hear the waves crashing from everywhere you are. The deck is big enough to sit and relax, take a nap on your beach towels under the huge umbrella listening to the ocean, play games with the family, eat, read, do yoga, get massages..... Anything at all that you can imagine you want to do right on the ocean front, you can do. It is that big, that useful and that delightful.

And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, they remodeled and updated the inside!! I thought it was perfect before and was surprised it could be made better, but oh my heavens! It is so bright and spacious! Everything is completely wide open downstairs. You can see the ocean in full majestic view while cooking, getting in the refrigerator, cooking a yummy meal on the nice stove or moving your beach towels from the washer to the dryer. You can eat at the dinner table together or have the family sit at the nice, huge kitchen bar while you're entertaining everyone. And still, may I add, all with the divine blue ocean right in full view!

It's amazing. Every want and need is thought of and you really do feel most comfortable and right at home. A huge plus that I have come to notice from being a regular renter is that with everyone being so unbelievably happy and at home, anything that isn't readily available while you're there, you buy and leave for the next persons stay. We have always arrived to fresh flowers and leave fresh flowers. There are always extra kitchen delights. Olive oil, cinnamon, marinades beyond marinades,recipes and those just compliment what the owners get you started with. Detergent, dish soap, coffee, tea.. Just like home, only better, because of the beach and again, that view!!

Now if you ever decide you want to leave heaven, then the next great thing, is that anything else you want is right in walking distance. You feel like driving or riding bikes about a mile or so, then you multiply it by 100! There's everything for everyone, upscale shopping, locally made stores, 5 star restaurants,quick delicious beach eats.. Outdoor fun and adventurous sightseeing, awesome farmers markets, the best bookstore ever..

It's an all around great place to visit and Ramsgate makes it home! See for yourself!

Awesome Stay at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here during this first week of August. We all loved the location as it was much less crowded that nearby Seaside. There's nothing quite like being right on the beach and Ramsgate lived up to all the positive reviews! It was an ideal size for our family of 5 and we all felt right at home in this warm & welcoming unit. The big balcony is amazing and we ate many of our meals there. The beach was beautiful with no seaweed and clear blue-green surf and I don't remember seeing more that one or two insects the entire week. The unit itself is very nice and the beds were all really comfortable. Fully stocked kitchen, beach towels & gear, TVs, stereo, games, etc. Everything that we could have asked for was already there. The other vacationers at Ramsgate were all very nice and our kids became fast friends which was a bonus. We're already booked for next August and are counting down the days until our return. Great vacation!!!
