About the property

Gift by the Sea

Gift by the Sea-Beachfront 9 – 2088 E. County Hwy 30A – Seaside, FL

Pure, simple and elegant. These series of beachfront “Honeymoon Cottages,” designed by architect Scott Merrill, who at one time was Seaside’s town architect, and inspired by President Thomas Jefferson as he built Monticello. These Gulf front cottages are the perfect setting for a romantic retreat. Perched perfectly behind the primary dune along the Gulf of Mexico, each cottage is furnished with a comforting neutral palette.

Gift by the Sea is part of the Sunburst Luxury Collection, a high service and amenity segment within Sunburst Beach Vacations that provides a 5 star luxury resort experience with all of the benefits...privacy, space and freedom...of a private home.

The rates are inclusive (with exception of taxes) of a full mid-week clean (with weekly stays only) and the departure clean (daily tidy ups can be arranged for an additional fee), 2 bikes, beach chair setups (2 chairs with umbrella) and beach towels. Our Guests will also enjoy a free "welcome" coffee at either the Seaside or Rosemary Beach Amavida Coffee.

The interior features maple hardwood floors and ceiling fans throughout. On the first floor you will find a king bedroom with a LCD TV, window seat, built-in closets and drawers, bathrobes, luggage rack and two bedside tables with wall-mounted lamps. Leading from the bedroom are French doors to a private dune level screened-in porch with a Jacuzzi tub. The porch has curtains that can be drawn for complete privacy. The bathroom has a pedestal sink and a walk-in shower. The second floor offers a small fully equipped kitchenette with dishwasher, frig with icemaker, microwave, cook top, toaster oven and dining table with two chairs. The living room features a wood-burning stove-style fireplace, 50” LCD TV with HD cable box, DVD, wireless internet, comfortable seating and coffee table. A French door off the living room opens to a covered porch complete with 2 cocktail height chairs and table as well as a romantic chaise lounge overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

Our vacation rental guests in Seaside have access to 3 pools, 6 tennis courts, croquet courts and a private fitness center. You’ll also find ample opportunity for biking, hiking and swimming.

What an unbelievable place to visit! Gift by the Sea was everything and more that we could have hoped for! Beautiful inside and out. We loved having dinner on the porch, listening to the sound of the waves, watching the beautiful sunset over the ocean, and enjoying the pelicans flying by. The decor was beautiful on the inside and very accommodating to our needs. It was a very romantic setting for us to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! We would highly recommend this place to all our family and friends! We will definitely be back as often as we can!

Beyond Perfect- a True Gift By the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to the Seaside area for 20 years, this has been my favorite rental yet! Excellently maintained property, thoughtful & elegant in its simple design.... a front row seat to the most gorgeous ocean and beach.... yet no planning required for what you will eat that day. So close to all the wonderful restaurants and eateries- we used our bikes or walked the whole time. No need to drive. Gift by the Sea is an amazing gift to your heart & soul - if you are looking to fall asleep to the sound of waves & wake up in the morning to the same, this is your place to be! Perfect lifetime memories are made here ❤

Dreamy getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cozy, romantic, clean cottage!! The location was perfect: waves lulling us to sleep each night and all the amenities of seaside just steps away! A dream come true! We had beach weather in December and no crowds. We felt extremely blessed!
