Overview

South Walton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 5

Going Coastal's guesthouse, Tight Lines, is everything you've come to expect in these nautical cottages and more! So get your bearings and come aboard! Be our guest in this 2 bedroom/ 2 bath seaside cottage!

With a bunk bedroom downstairs that sleeps 2 and a full bed upstairs that sleeps 2 more, you'll enjoy separate amenities and feel like you have a floor all to yourself. The bathroom downstairs is quaint with separate walk-in shower off the bedroom while the one upstairs boasts the bath/shower combo. A single trundle bed in the loft area completes the cottage, and is sure to provide the extra "deck" space needed for the kids.

A quaint kitchen and dining area are just off the living room allowing you to enjoy breakfast in the morning before heading out for an ocean swim!

Outside, Tight lines enjoys a front porch with rocking chairs, and shared bar-b-que deck with Going Costal. Centrally located beside the Ruskin Place Artist Colony, and steps to the Seaside town Center and, of course, the Beach, Tight Lines is the perfect, reasonably priced getaway you've been looking for!

So tighten your lines and sail on in to one of the cutest cottages in Seaside!

**All Sandpiper managed properties now come with 2 complimentary bikes year-round, AND complimentary Seaside amenity passes during our high season Spring Break- Labor Day!! Amenity passes are available for a fee of $24/day in the off-season.**

Needs some work

  • 3 of 5

Tight lines is an appropriate name for this property. We stayed here for 9 days; 2 adults, 2 high school age kids and a 3 year old. It was tight. There really isn't anywhere for a group to sit in this house. The living room consisted of a loveseat, a wicker chair and another chair that had broken legs (which made it unusable). The washer and dryer is a stackable unit...the washer works fine, but the dryer is pretty much shot. It took over 2 hours to dry one beach towel. I spent A LOT of time juggling laundry to ensure we had clean beach and shower towels. Not something you want to necessarily mess with while on vacation. The TVs in the house are really small as well. The living room could easily hold a bigger one if the tiny TV cabinet was removed and the TV wall mounted. The upstairs master bedroom has a window that overlooks the living room, but no curtains. The loft room can see directly into the master bedroom through this window. Also there is not a door to the master bedroom...it is open to the hallway that leads to the upstairs bathroom and the lofted "bedroom". KInd of awkward/odd. The ironing board was also broke. Oddly enough, there wasn't a broom to be found at the property...and being near a beach, sand naturally gets inside. Would have been nice to be able to clean up a little bit. Lastly, the internet service at this property was really, really bad during our entire stay. Tight Lines is a companion property to Going Coastal, and its internet is supplied via a wifi range extender based off the Going Coastal wifi. Problem is, if Going Coastal's internet isn't working, neither is Tight Lines'. The wireless internet at this property was down/offline way more than it was up and running. When it was up, the signal was very, very poor. It made it pretty much impossible to get online and take care of any work matters that I needed to deal with. Pretty frustrating.

All in all, if the house had some updates made to it, it would be a great little cottage. As it is, it is just "OK". We probably wouldn't seek to rent this particular property again; we come to Seaside every August.

I will say that the Sandpiper maintenance people were very nice and quick to respond. No complaints there, this property just needs some TLC and overall updates and it would be much nicer.

Great place to stay! Very convenient to pools, beach, and seaside square

  • 5 of 5

I love this place!! The house is great. We are a family of 5 and had plenty of room. My kids rode bikes all over town and had a great time. Everything is perfect...if I was asked to give any improvements they would be to install blinds on door to deck, a door or curtain on the door of upstairs bedroom, and a curtain on window overlooking downstairs in upstairs bedroom. Other than those minute items we absolutely loved this place!! Would love to come back.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

This house is in need of repair. The trundle bed was broken and the bedding was gross when we arrived. Housekeeping brought clean linens for bed. The rug in kitchen looks awful and stained. The downstairs bathroom is tiny- almost claustrophobic.

We had planned on cooking dinner most nights- no way in that kitchen. Too small.

We were a family of five and that's about three people too many for this house.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback. The trundle bed has now been replaced with a brand new bunk bed! The cottage is a small 2 bedroom guest cottage with Old Seaside rustic charm. The kitchen is fully functional for cooking with all full size appliances- while the kitchen and second bath are on the smaller side, the home is perfect for a family of 4 or 5 with children and a great location. The kitchen rug is being replaced as well.

Great Location Makes Average Digs Tolerable

  • 4 of 5

My best friend and I stayed at Tight Lines in May and had a wonderful time. When you walk out the front door, you can see Seaside's bike shop in the square - it's that close…yet in a wooded, quiet spot. The screened-in porch was nice. The house is dated and modestly decorated, though I can tell the beds are fairly new. It's definitely not luxurious, but it's fine…if you're planning to spend your time outside. Be prepared for the rental company to send inspectors out, so don't be freaked out. We had 2 visits. Overall, we really enjoyed our visit. If you go, do yourself a favor and have a sunset dinner at Fish Out of Water or Vue on their waterfront dining decks.

wonderful weekend in Seaside

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tight Lines over a three day weekend for my brother's wedding. The cottage is adorable - clean, spacious, very well appointed. One of the reasons i chose Tight Lines was that my grandmother was traveling with us and needed a bedroom and bath on the first level.

30A Songwriters Fest

  • 4 of 5

We three music lovers enjoyed our stay at Tight Lines during the 2014 30A Songwriters Music Festival. The cottage is perfectly located in the heart of Seaside, so that we were able to walk or bike to most venues, and take the shuttle to others. The cottage was cozy and comfortable, just as it looked in the photos online. The rental agency staff was very patient and helpful when I couldn't figure out the lock box or locate the extra towels, and the greeters were delightful in welcoming us to the property. I would stay here again - in fact, it was hard to leave! The only downside was the tight parking situation, but that is just a general Seaside thing.
