Our exceptionally beautiful beach house, named Muriel's Grove, is in a highly preferred location that is absolutely wonderful for a vacation. It has all the beauty and amenities of Seaside but at considerable $$ savings.
The beaches in this area, 'America's Most Beautiful,' are fabulous! Bordered by high sand dunes, the beach is wide with sugar white sand, and the warm water is emerald green.
Muriel's Grove is close to the beach (200 yards) and right next door to a large, beautiful swimming pool. It is in the very popular 'Grove by the Sea' community, a quiet and relaxing neighborhood of lovely seaside cottages nestled in a grove of magnolias and pine trees, that includes tennis, a children's play area, two swimming pools, and walking/biking paths.
Decorated in light, bright colors with a beach cottage theme, the house is beautifully furnished. There are hardwood floors throughout, and all the rooms have French doors that open to decks and the tropical paradise outside. Plantation shutters on the windows provide a wonderful sense of southern charm. Muriel's Grove is a special house that you will simply fall in love with.
The modern kitchen is fully equipped, and the dining area has seating for 11. On the first floor, there is one bedroom (two twin beds) and a queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room. Upstairs are two bedrooms (king bed, queen bed), and a studio room (full sized futon) that can be used as an extra bedroom if needed.
Safe, off road trails and sidewalks (perfect for walking, jogging, rollerblading, and biking) provide easy access to the many wonderful nearby recreational areas. Grayton Beach (4 miles), Grayton Beach State Park (2.5 miles), Point Washington State Forest (1.5 miles), Deer Lake State Park (3.5 miles) and Camp Creek Golf Club (5 miles) are just minutes away. The architecturally famous town of Seaside is just 0.9 mile away; you'll love its many colorful homes, small shops, and restaurants. Throughout the year, you can enjoy the many scheduled free events that Seaside has to offer.
Early risers can enjoy spectacular sunrises and the wide open space at the beach. Better yet, change the routine - sleep in, open the French doors, and listen to the birds outside. After a late breakfast, build sandcastles, swim and play with the kids, or take a walk on the beach down to Seaside. Enjoy lunch outside on the picnic table in the woods, or take a nap in our hammock and chairs beneath the pines and magnolia next to the pool.
You won't want to miss the fabulous sunsets either! In the evenings you can grill fresh seafood outside on the gas grill or just cook spaghetti for the kids. Enjoy dinner with your entire group seated at our large dining table as you share the day's activities with each other. After dinner walk or bike to Seaside and treat everyone to ice cream...or take a dip in the pool, and then relax on the wraparound decks under the ceiling fans as you listen to the sounds of the surf and woods. Later yet, go to the beach, lie on your back, and look at the stars.
WOW!--it doesn't get any better!!!

Jim and I both retired to the Grove by the Sea in the fall of 2003. Our permanent residence is just 50 yards away from Muriel's Grove. We are available in a moment's notice should any problems occur during the rental season.
We vacationed in this area for many of the years that we lived in Birmingham. Thinking that our kids, who are beach lovers, would always find a way to come visit us here at the beach. we planned to retire to Muriel's Grove. Instead we built our permanent home in the same neighborhood so that we could continue to share Muriel's Grove with families who love the beach as much as we do.
We love going to Seaside's Modica Market in for coffee and a muffin during our morning walks. You can park your car and ride bikes to just about anywhere on 30A. Our personal favorite is sitting on the porch with our morning coffee while listening to the birds in one of the most peaceful settings along 30A..
