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.

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.
We have always loved Seaside and are especially fond of Shady Lady. It's a great house in the best location, one minute from beach and downtown. We came again with three couples which makes the three bathrooms and outside shower just what we need. Love having the comfortable beds, especially the king. We had everything we needed to prepare and enjoy good meals and fun times together. Shady Lady is always very clean and has all we can think of we need. Our guys enjoyed the games on big screen TV. We recommend to everyone and plan to come back as soon as we can. Yea, Seaside!!
Shady Lady has everything you need for six people and the location is perfect. The warm days were amazing and Seaside as always was wonderful. The walk to the beach is one minute and relaxing on the porch is the best. Loved the little chapel and all the parks. We had three couples and all plan to go back to Shady Lady. Came home relaxed and happy.
We stayed at the Shady Lady over the weekend of my wedding in Seaside. It was the perfect house for me, my bridesmaids, and their spouses. The location is great, walkable to all the Seaside shops and restaurants. The balcony off the master bedroom was so beautiful, our photographer used it as a backdrop for some of our wedding photos!
Our friends told us to be sure to stay in Shady Lady and they were right. We so enjoyed being in the trees and having a private place to gather yet being steps from the beach, pools, restaurants and all the town activity. Everything was just perfect and we'll come back to Shady Lady in October. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us.
