The Very Best in Florida Beach Vacations!

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 service (note, service is seasonal) and beach towels.

"We enjoyed Cafe Tango and The Surfing Deer. Both were excellent!! We enjoyed the hot tub very much!!"
"We have stayed in a number of the Beachfront cottages over the years and this is by far the nicest, most well maintained cottage we have been in. It was fantastic and we will definitely be back next spring, if not sooner. Top notch all the way around. Sunburst was a fantastic company to deal with and was spot on with all amenities and conditions of the properties."
"Excellent property for a long weekend getaway!"
"Julia was wonderful!! Very nice, helpful and knowledgeable."
