Why Sandpiper Vacation Rentals chose South Walton

We were looking at a couple of cottages along the Beaches of South Walton. It was an easy decision after visiting Seaside. It is so cozy and comfortable here. They seemed to have captured the real community feel that the other communities cant match. Creole and Coquina are situated perfectly in Seaside. Right near the East Side Pool and Tennis Courts and a few minutes walk to the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Seaside is so different than any other vacation spot, it’s the simplest pleasures which each day brings that are most important. It might be the the sunrise over the gulf waters that makes that day spectacular. In any case just being in Seaside around folks that are pleasant and happy is a blessing. You certainly have your own freedom to do what you want from shopping to dining to biking up and down 30-A to festival or special event.

This cottage has an AMAZING location! Across the street from the playground and fully-covered family pool. And just a short walk from the Savannah Street beach pavilion and downtown Seaside. We walked everywhere all week long! The front porch is shaded and private. The house is clean and well-equipped. It's perfect for one family with kids!

Sandpiper is such a wonderful agency to work with! They were prompt, provided tons of information about our stay before we arrived, and had a greeter meet us upon check-in to answer any questions. AND sent free donuts to the house on the first morning of our stay.

We will definitely be renting this cottage again next summer!!

Fabulous time in this quaint cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 1 year old little boy had a perfect stay in the Creole. The location is great...right across the street from the pool, playground and fitness center, and only a short walk to both the private beach access and Seaside Square. Besides stocking up on some essentials at the nearby Publix, our car never left the parking spot! This cottage is great for small families. My husband and I slept in the upstairs loft and we rented a crib for the downstairs bedroom. The bunk beds in that room would be great for older kids as well. It's a perfect setup and allows for privacy between the adults and kids. The cottage has everything you would need, although if you are staying longer than 4 days or so, you will need to pick up some toilet paper, paper towels, etc. The kitchen included any gadget you could need. You could easily fix all of your meals right there, but I definitely recommend checking out all of the fantastic Seaside restaurants and airstream trailer food trucks! Perfect stay and we will be back for sure!

Nice place, great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice property and it is in a great location. They do a nice job of making sure everything is ready when you arrive. The house is quaint and has everything you need. The upstairs bedroom is a loft - open on two sides. So, if you are traveling with another family or older kids, you hear everything that goes on downstairs. Other than that, it is a nice place for a vacation - shirt walk to beach, across the street from pools, playground, and fitness center.

December by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

This charming Seaside cottage is just as wonderful in person as it is online. Everything about this cottage is welcoming, well stocked, and ideally suited for time at the beach. You can walk 4 minutes and be at your beachside pavillion complete with bathrooms and deck chairs or meander into town (3 blocks) for a delightful meal or shopping. I am 55+ and spent the whole month here and managed the entire visit without a car. I was able to walk or ride my bicycle everywhere I needed to go. Seaside is a fabulous destination and Creole is an absolutely delightful place to hang your hat while you are here. Rental agent was great to work with. If you choose this cottage you won't be disappointed.

Crabtrees from Tennessee....

We enjoyed the location very much. It is directly across from the fitness center and pool. Also working with the rental company was great. Two things you may want to know is the kitchen is perfect for what you need but there is not an oven but two toaster ovens. They worked out fine for all I needed them for during my stay but wish I had known and most likely i just did not research it well in the amenities information provided. Also two nice bathrooms but just one shower. The bathroom is large in size so it worked out fine and the bathroom on second floor was big as well. I would stay there again for sure because of location, price and how nice Matt was to work with when renting Creole. We are a family of 4 and this home works for about that size family. It had a nice waher/dryer set and welcoming front porch. The home was supplied with all your needs.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at Creole and for your kind comments. We are replacing the convection oven with a NEW professional gas range in January 2013 and a new tank less water heater as well. We hope you'll come back and stay with us again and enjoy these new amenities! Update January 2014 - Please take a look at the pictures of our beautifully renovated kitchen with granite counters and Italian gas stove! We are so excited to offer our guests every convenience.

What a perfect cottage for us to unwind and enjoy a few days of quiet. A great location and perfect space for us. We will definitely stay here again. This was our second year renting from Sandpiper; they make the whole process so easy.
