House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
We've traveled everywhere and found that our hearts were always drawn back to Seaside. From when Merilee first read about Seaside in 1983, until we finally visited for the first time in 1996, we were transformed. God answered our prayers and we were able to purchase our cottage in 2008. This is a treasure for all who come and it is our dream for our children, grandchildren and their children to enjoy the legacy of Seaside and Merilee By-The-Sea.
Merilee purchased this House in 2008
Why Merilee chose Seaside
Seaside is simply the best! The town has a great story to match the development. From Robert Davis' grandfather to the present day, great care has gone in to every detail that is Seaside. Often imitated, there's no substitute for the original.
What makes this House unique
Waking every morning and looking out at the gulf, just can't be beat. Walking to Bud & Alley's for a drink at sunset is priceless. During colder weather, stay inside and watch the sunset from our Great Room. This is the best location in Seaside. Park the car and walk to everything. Return to simpler times and enjoy the surrounding beauty and each other. There’s always something to do…or nothing at all. Check out the new "Surfing Deer" in Seagrove. Miami Beach atmosphere comes to Seagrove. A short walk to great food and drinks. Seagrove Market has recently re-opened. Fresh look but the same fried goodness.

Merilee By-The-Sea Seadside FL
Merilee By-The-Sea is a wonderful and with easy steps to the wonderful Seaside Florida beach!
Merilee By-The-Sea is a clean and comfortable place for you and your family to spend a relaxing vacation watching the ocean go by! With two king size master bedrooms and a bunk room for the kiddies. A full size washer and dryer for those mid week cleanups. The kitchen and upstairs great room and outside patio has great views of the ocean. Even with two days of hard rain, the Merilee By-The-Sea was a comfortable place to spend time watching movies.
It is an easy walk or bike ride to the Seaside downtown restaurants like Great Southern, Bud and Alleys, The Taco bar and Modica's. For a great Breakfast, a short bike ride to Grayton Beach Black Bear Coffee house!
We love the sugar white sandy beaches of Seaside and the Emerald coast. The East Ruskin Beach Pavilion is right outside the Merilee By-The-Sea, a great place for pizza and watching the sun go down.
Merilee By-The-Sea is a great place for you and your family, we have stayed there several time, and we will be back.
Cheers the Wood family of Arizona and the Mahoney family of Texas.
Great to have you all back again. We love hearing about how you experience Seaside and Merilee By-The-Sea. Have a great holiday season and come back soon!
Great place with a one minute walk to a private beach, no flip flops required for the walk. The heart of seaside another one minute walk. Beds are comfortable, with plenty of room in the bunk room for 4-6 kids. Would definitely rent again.
We're so glad you enjoyed your time at our cottage. Thank you for your kind words and please come back soon.
Fabulous family vacation
We could not have been happier with the house. With two master suites and a bunk room big enough for four kids everyone was comfortable. Being on the beach side of 30A was priceless. Thank you!
So glad you enjoyed our home. Please visit again soon!
2019 Marilee Memories
Our 2019 summer Seaside vacation was one for the books! Marilee was right on top of the beautiful clear gulf for our 4th of July week. Can you say front row seats to the fireworks?!! The home was just divine and right on top of our favorite East Ruskin Pavilion . It’s so close to the beach I never had to wear flip flops! The home is decorated beautifully and created such happy feelings. The beds are super comfy, the newly remodeled bathrooms are fabulous, and the views from the upstairs porch and windows is to die for. The kitchen is stocked with all we needed to make meals when we weren’t taking advantage of being two steps away from all the food trucks! I thought not having a full sized refrigerator would be a challenge but it was no big deal. We had fun walking to Modica Market if we needed anything.
I have to say after coming to Seaside since 1995 Marilee is our favorite house by far.
Angie, we loved having you and your family and are so glad you experienced the beauty of Seaside and Merilee By-the-Sea. Please come back again soon!
Excellent location. Ocean views.
Beautiful home with plenty of windows overlooking the ocean. Location next to east Ruskin pavilion and the center of seaside could not Ben more perfect.
We were so glad you loved your stay at our cottage. Looking out at the ocean never gets old. Please come visit us again.
Amazing beach cottage!
Merilee by the Sea is an amazing retreat in Seaside. It is decorated in such a comfortable beachy style. It is the perfect place to stay; close to the beach (you can see and hear the waves from every room), close to the town (to go get a bite to eat or a drink), but cozy enough to stay in , fix dinner and relax on the porch with a glass of wine. Merilee by the Sea has become our favorite place to stay on 30A.
Christine-We're so glad you soaked up all the beauty of Seaside and Merilee By-The-Sea. Please come back again soon!
