Shady Lady is a beautiful, shady oasis with wood floors,nestled in the trees in the heart of Seaside,with huge porches and lots of outdoor seating. There is a 40 inch flat screen TV in the living room and two other TVs in the bedrooms. It's only a two minute walk from the glistening white sand beach and a two minute walk to town. Our cottage is two doors from the Tupelo gazebo where children and adults love to gather, make new friends or sell lemonade.
Shady Lady's whimsical, third-floor, tower, 'fish' bedroom with queen bed has a bird's eye view of Seaside rooftops and the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico. The second-floor master suite with king bed and full bath opens onto a huge, wonderful porch in the trees for after-beach relaxing. Another second-floor queen bedroom has hall bath and lots of books to peruse.
Downstairs is an open living area with comfy sofa, love seat and easy chairs adjoining the full kitchen and dining area, and a bath with inside-outside shower.
If you have never visited Seaside with its landscape of white picket fences and fairy tale cottages, you must grant yourself this very special experience. You will fall in love with Seaside's extraordinary architecture, narrow brick streets, winding paths and fun things for families and friends to do. Shady Lady is a half block from tennis, swimming pools, a fitness center and children's playground, and just two streets from the center of town.
There are dune lakes, golf courses and 20 miles of bike paths nearby. Seaside has movies and live concerts on the grass, live theater, an open air market, great art galleries, all kinds of fun shops, a book store, great restaurants, a neat coffee shop, and the famed Modica Market with its exotic foods and outdoor cafe. Life is so laid-back and easy here.

I'll never forget what a wonderful time we had at Shady Lady during my niece's beautiful wedding. Special time, special house, special weather, special little town. Highly recommend.
We just got back from our wonderful vacation in Shady Lady.The house was great, perfect for our family with kids 11, 9, 6 and 5. House has three bedrooms and three baths and we were so comfortable. It's a three minute walk to the gorgeous beach and a five minute walk to town center which is such a fun place. We had ice cream at a different place every night. We loved the gorgeous trees and private courtyard and porches. Thank you for the best vacation! We'll be back soon.
Compact comfortable cottage. Easy to access with keys in lockbox.
great location, comfortable beds and furniture, the upstairs porch was great for am coffee and evening wine. Well appointed. Small but functional kitchen.
Internet was horribly slow and cell phone signal was almost non-existent. No storage space in kitchen for food. Instructions on how to wort the TV / Cable would have been nice. Reported a faucet leak the day we arrived and it was never fixed.
We had a wonderful time. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home. Kim LaBrie
November in Seaside is so beautiful and we loved staying in Shady Lady. We took a thousand photos in the gazebo just steps away and watched the sun set every night at the pavilion. The beach is GORGEOUS and steps away from SL. Ate and slept and ate some more. Ride bikes all over the place. Went to beautiful little chapel for services. Visited all the little shops and coffee house and played croquet on the lawn. Tennis courts were great. Coming back to Shady Lady real soon. TX for great vacation.
We had a ball staying in Shady Lady at Christmas. Our family loves the beach and we walked for miles collecting sea shells and dodging waves. So nice to be only a minute away. Shady Lady is so cozy and comfortable with great beds, and sleeping was heavenly. 3 TVs is a plus and 3 bathrooms great with 2 daughters. We fixed yummy meals and also ate at Bud & Alleys and Great Southern. Love those grits.
New wine bar nice. Coming back to Shady Lady. Highly recommend.
