About the property

Location is Primo!

Our building overlooks the shops in the Ruskin Place district of Seaside, and during the day, you can sit and watch folks walking by, shopping and enjoying Seaside’s unique stores.

When you enter the Picasso Moon, you will find a very industrial style building which was fashioned after the SoHo district in New York City. If you are looking for elegance or a fancy Watercolor style type home, this is not what you will find: instead, you will find a loft style building with an artistic flair concrete walls, concrete floors and a unique style of fun.

We have a large and great rooftop where you can see Seaside from 360 degrees. The Gulf, The park, The houses to the East, and to the West

……….. you can experience sunrise and sunset.

Once you have arrived in Seaside, you truly DO NOT have to get in your car again unless you want to leave our lovely town.....

Just like being in your own small town............FABULOUS place for kids to roam, just like the old days.

Very clean and very close to all there is in this community - easy walk.

  • 5 of 5

Definitely would return to this place and the owners are great and easy to work with. Perfect size and had everything we needed, including several beach items the kids could use. 1 block walk to the market - 2 blocks to the beach front - multiple beach access points made it easy to see sunsets as well.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This unit is not fancy. Instead it is a very industrial unit that has all the things that make it a perfect vacation getaway. The front porch was super, with the handing bed. And you walk out the front or back door to all that is happening in Seaside. WE will stay here again...

Just OK

  • 3 of 5

Great location, but not the cleanest. I put the basket of silverware on the counter and it left so much dust, I had to dust the whole kitchen to feel clean. It needs updating.

Owner's Response: Danielle... I am glad that you enjoyed our location... which allows you to walk out the door and be within seconds at the restaurants, shops and ice cream store.... Hmmm... I think that the silverware is in a rattan basket which does "shed" when you put the silverware in it..........but that is not dirty. And this unit is a New York Soho type industrial is not a fancy smancy Watercolor or Rosemary Beach style property.... I do make that clear in my description. My unit has concrete floors... concrete ceilings and industrial type finishes...this is how it is designed....

Enjoyed location and unit

  • 5 of 5

We have 3 small children and this place was perfect. The covered front porch was wonderful for the kids. They could enjoy the sights and sounds of Seaside, without me worrying about their safety. We will be back. Oh.... the owners live above this unit, and were extremely helpful and nice.
