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 house and pool

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and pool. The kitchen was great with beautiful cabinets and everything you needed. The only negative comment we might have was the wicker furniture in the living room. It wasn't overly comfortable for sitting and watching TV and reading. Other than that we loved the house. A short walk to the beach and the donut shop. haha Beach was beautiful while we were there.

Great experience at the Seacliff Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay. The "extras" were a great added touch (towels, beach & pool toys, beach chairs, bikes, games, etc...). The beach access yet remoteness of the house were fantastic. Highly recommend!

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Seacliff Cottage is the perfect beach bungalow with PRIVATE pool. We have returned year after year to enjoy this well appointed home. I love the proximity to the beach and surrounding attractions. The screened in porch is also one of my favorite spots; in the morning drinking coffee or in the evening with a glass of wine listening to the wildlife. After a day at the beach we love to jump in the pool and cool off after walking back to the house. Yes, that's how close you are to the beach, walking distance. Or if you have a ton of stuff, there is a public access parking and ramp right down the street. A MUST is Angelina's Pizza and a trip to Panama City Pier. Fun memories made every year.

Clean & spacious/ furniture uncomfortable

  • 3 of 5

Clean & spacious. Pool was nice. The main TV never would work. (Rained several days, so we needed TV) The furniture was extremely uncomfortable. Just wicker with a cushion. Mosquitos were terrible. The mosquito truck did come by on our last night there.
