About the property

5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, Sleeps 11


Talk about a room with a view! Oceanfront and out of this world, FRONT ROW is a 5 bedroom/ 6 bath beach house that has everything you could possibly need to enjoy all that the town of Seaside has to offer - and all from the FRONT ROW! As one of Seaside's three large picturesque cottages along the panhandle, FRONT ROW offers luxuries like a private hot tub, beach access, flat screen TV's in every bedroom & bathroom, and mid-week maid service!

As you enter Front Row you'll find 3 rooms and the laundry room on the main level. The first queen guest room offers beautiful decor, flat screen TV, and designer private bath. The bunk room is also on this level and sleeps 3 in twin bunks with private shower/bath combo. The media room/guest room offers twins (sleeps 2), a flat screen TV with Blue Ray DVD and Playstation 3. The screened-in porch finishes off the main level of Front Row and is perfect for enjoying the sea air or granting you easy access to the beach.

Don't feel like climbing the hardwood take the elevator up to the 2nd level. There you will find the king master retreat with large walk-in closet, designer bathroom with intricate tile detail, a steam shower, stand-alone porcelain tub, and a flat screen TV. French doors take you out to a 600 sq ft private balcony with your own private hot tub! Keep the doors open at night and enjoy being lulled to sleep by the sound of the lapping ocean water.

You'll find the final guestroom with queen bed, private bath, and flat screen TV before heading up to the 3rd floor.

The top floor boasts gorgeous living areas, a gourmet kitchen with bar (seats 4), stainless steel appliances, 2 dishwashers, dining area (seats 8), living area with fireplace, wet bar, and flat screen TV with Blue Ray DVD. The 3rd floor balcony is where you'll enjoy grilling out on a gas grill or sipping on a cocktail after a long day at the beach!

Needs some work

  • 2 of 5

For the cost of this house for a week I was expecting perfection but this house needs some work. The bottom floor light flickered the entire time of our stay. The downstairs shower light never worked. The master shower would leak to the bottom floor bedroom as well as the cold/hot handles of the master sink fell off. The mattress in the master and 2 queen mattress were pathetic, it felt like you were sleeping in a ditch as the middle of the mattress had zero support. None of us sleep well due to the mattresses. There was very little lighting in the 3rd floor kitchen area. There are 3 large pendant lights over the 2nd sink in the kitchen and 2 standalone lamps but that was it. The TV's would only work periodically. I was under the impression from the description that the house had beach access but it does not, you walk down past the shops to the main beach access. The hot tub was lukewarm at best and the outside gate going towards the outdoor shower was nonoperational. I hope with the money we spend the owners will make some repairs. The service from Sandpiper was good.

Owner's Response: Hi Brett, I’m so sorry that you did not have a good experience at Front Row. We had no idea about all of this and wished you would have let us know about the mattresses immediately. A good nights sleep is so important while on vacation. I wanted to let you know we immediately replaced all three mattresses the minute we saw your review. We also got an electrician out to fix the flickering light and repaired the master sink, master shower, and all TVs are working properly. We also checked the hot tub and all was heating properly when we checked. Again, we are terribly sorry that these things were not as they should have been for your stay. Please accept our sincere apologies. We hope you will give Front Row a second try as we have NEVER received anything but great comments about this beautiful gulf front Seaside cottage.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We all loved it! Kids loved being close to downtown. Great place! The map to the property need to be updated. It was hard to find. It is just East of "Pickles Restaurant", not West.

The stay was great. Our family were all tired from hectic schedule and enjoyed the nearness to beach and town center. We had great vacation.

Prime Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our family - 6 adults and 4 young children. This is one of the most prime spots at close to every thing and ideal for families with close access to the beach and pools. Front Row is a spacious house and our family wants to return again in another year! A definite spot you'll want to relax at and take a break from the daily work grind!

The home was well maintained and clean upon arrival. Our favorite eating spots were Bud & Alleys, Southern Café, Pizza Bar Pizza Bar and 723 Whiskey Bravo...all within a short distance. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and other relatives. The property owner was very helpful and responsive to our questions. The pictures are spot on and accurately describe the property.

Very nice experience

  • 5 of 5

First rate property, ideal setup for families. Unbelievably close to everything in Seaside. Coffee shop just steps away from door, beach 300 ft. away. Very nice views on all levels.
