Seaside – Changes in Attitudes

Escape to the Florida Panhandle for a unforgettable stay at this four-bedroom cottage in Santa Rosa Beach. With space for up to 8 guests, it’s perfect for everyone and offers a shared pool (available for a fee), a beautiful interior full of high-end appointments, and wraparound decks for watching sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico!

You’ll be a mere 120 steps from the beach, close to the Seaside west pool, and just a few blocks from Seaside town center, which you might recognize from the 1998 movie “The Truman Show.” The home sits in the heart of the Seaside neighborhood at the end of Pensacola Street at the Pensacola Pavilion, two blocks from Seaside town center.

Step inside this beautifully appointed home to admire its enchanting, one-of-a-kind character. Nautical decor hangs on bright white walls, while West Indies furniture sits in spacious rooms. Numerous cutout windows bathe the living area in natural light, and the room stays lit up with the glow of the fireplace at night.

Gather for a group movie on the DVD- and cable-equipped flat screen, or break out some board games for an evening of fun. Just beyond French doors, the wraparound deck on the main floor is perfect for al fresco dining, or just enjoying a tropical cocktail on a hot summer day.

Speaking of dining, the open concept kitchen offers everything you’ll need to cook fresh, homemade meals while you’re here. Grill up the catch of the day using stainless steel appliances, then serve up your succulent creations at the breakfast bar or the nearby six-seat table. Between the two areas, your whole group can dine together. In the mood for a barbecue? Simply fire up the outdoor grill!

Afterward, take a dip in the community pool, or explore the well-kept neighborhood. You could also stop to rest at the community gazebo, which provides a great vantage point for watching pink- and purple-hued sunsets over the Gulf. If you prefer to stay closer to home, the third-floor tower sits above almost all other homes in the area and gives you a great vantage point for sunsets.

Time to call it a day? Retire for restful slumber in any of four bedrooms. With queen beds in three bedrooms and two sets of twin beds (four total) in a fun bunk room, up to 8 guests are accommodated. The nautical theme is continued in each bedroom, and you’ll even find access to a second story deck. Flip on overhead fans to circulate the air on muggy nights, or head onto the deck for a nightcap under the stars. Put a load of laundry in the washer/dryer for a fresh set of clothes in the morning.

Wake with a bold Florida sunrise, start a hot pot of coffee in the kitchen, and get ready for a new day of adventures. Connect to the WiFi to plan your agenda. Ready for some road trips? Sightsee in other quaint coastal communities by taking a drive on scenic Highway 30A, or opt for some wildlife viewing on a nature hike at Grayton Beach State Park (three miles west). If you’re looking to explore the city scene, head 72 miles west to Pensacola for historic districts with notable landmarks, eclectic dining, and cultural attractions.
