My family of four, my husband and our 4 year old daughter and 1 year old son, has been vacationing at seaside/seagrove for about 5 years now and have come to know the area pretty well.
We had not stayed at cassine or been onto the property but were definitely familiar with how nice of a building it is as well as it's close proximity to the beach, town and all the shopping and eating you can imagine.
With all of that being known, it is hard to imagine just how nice it is once you arrive. With every amenity and comfort from home you could ever want or need we immediately felt relaxed and on vacation. The living room and kitchen are so big and open and nice there is plenty of lounging room and play room for the whole family to enjoy together regardless of what you're doing and there are plenty of games and activities provided to suit all age levels.
It is so close to the center of seaside we walked there with the stroller most every time we went unless it was getting dark. But its also right across the street from the seafood shop, above some surf shops and next to yummy angelines italian restaurant, the movie store, coffee store, ice cream store and a true local 'beenaroundforever' sandwich place! We rarely drove which was one of the most awesome parts of our trip. True beach bums! You can see and hear the ocean from the unit and it is right across the street, a 2 minute walk in case you forget something or need to use the bathroom.
So I saved the best for last and that is the amazing porch and comfortable beds! The beds and bed linens are so nice and soft and comfy that I missed them for a week when we got home. But the porch, the porch is unbelievable. It is so huge and cozy. There were several times we opted to stay on the porch instead of walking on the beach. Theres a couch and chairs, grill and dining table. You can see and hear the ocean. Its quiet and peaceful, overlooking one of the lovely pools and trees.
Gosh, it really is heavenly and we can not wait to sit on it again!
I highly recommend Cassine for anyone who wants a really nice and comfortable place to stay thats close to everything. And I wish everyone that does a wonderful time!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. We think Cassine is a special place too and we are always thrilled to hear when our visitors enjoy their stay. It's a little bit of a hidden treasure in the heart of Seagrove.
I don't know if you had a chance to explore the old growth cypress forest in the gardens portion of Cassine, but that's another great thing about the complex. The entire property backs up to state forest land with direct access to hiking trails from Cassine. For those that enjoy trail biking or hiking, it is something else to explore.
We are so glad you and your family had a perfect time, and I know you will come back soon - you are a wonderful return guest.
