Six bikes are provided for your convenience and an outdoor shower for rinsing off after a day of fun in the sun. You will love spending your evenings on the gulf front patio, cooking up your catch of the day on the gas grill, and enjoying spectacular sunsets. Windows that span the length of the home welcome you as you enter the main house, so there are breathtaking gulf views from every angle. There are plenty of cozy seating areas with those incredible views, two dining tables and a flat screen TV near the original (now decorative) fireplace. The unique waterfront dining table is original to the home and full of family memories. Other features of the main house include locally sourced cypress paneling, terrazzo floors, an upright piano and a framed puzzle with a romantic backstory. A convenient breezeway connects the two homes. The main house has a massive living/entertaining area, full kitchen and 3 bedrooms with ensuite baths for a total of 3.5 baths. The guest house has a private entrance and boasts its own living space and kitchenette along with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Butterfly Bluff provides a one-of-a-kind experience.

Area Attractions:

Seaside is a fantastic destination in walking distance and is most widely known for being featured in the Truman Show with Jim Carrey. Its incredible architecture has helped to make it famous but also its faithful replication of the kind of seaside town that used to be common up and down the coast. Seaside has its own Farmer's Market, post office, Repertory Theater and neighborhood school. It boasts unique shopping, fantastic cuisine and the incredible architecture that makes Seaside famous, There are activities for everyone; kayak rentals, bike rentals, paragliding, fishing, golfing, hiking, swimming, tennis -- you'll find it all right here.

The snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Sea Turtle Reef, deployed in 2017. Located just 783 feet out from the Grayton Beach State Park access, it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Sea Turtle Reef is at a depth of 12-19 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

"Location, location, location. This compound is in the perfect location. 5 minute walk to Seaside. 10 minute walk to Water Color. Right on the beach. The public walkway to the beach was one house over. Plenty of options for beach chair and umbrella rental just like at Seaside. The patio overlooking the beach is unique. At night you can watch the sun go down or see an occasional storm pass through. In the morning and during the day, you can occasionally see dolphins passing through.
We booked next year’s stay before we left. Thank you!"

"Location can’t be beat. - Walking distance to seaside! Loved the location. House was spotless. View of the ocean is incredible."

Stayed November 2022

"Worth. Every. Penny. This house was so clean with priceless views and a location that can’t be beat. It can accommodate a lot of people with large living and dining spaces. I underestimated the value of a bathroom for each bedroom! RealJoy provided the best communication I have ever had with a rental and addressed any issues with promptness and courtesy. The quiet beach, easy beach access, 6 bikes, an easy walk to the town square, a clean gas grill, a fridge with an ice machine in the door, the view and easy parking are just a few of the many things I loved about this house! Did I mention the 60’s charm and the butterflies? This was more money than we wanted to spend, but I’m glad we did!"

"I was thrilled with the location. It was fantastic. My daughters (6 and 3) loved it, too!"

Stayed May 2022

"That was such an amazing place!!! We loved the genuine/charming details of the original house! It’s clean as can be and decorated so cool, classy and fun! Not sure how it can appeal to so many people with different tastes… but it did. Loved the ocean views from the dining room and porch!! Missing those already. Also- we were very pleased with the walking distance to the town center and to the beach. We loved it all."

"great, but minor improvements needed - great, but - there are 3 locked doors and we received only 2 door codes. - ice dispenser broken and far too slow for 16 people. ice trays in second fridge would help. - renters should know there's no garbage pick-up on Mondays out of season. - light above DR table is out."

"Lovely Beach House - Perfect location. House was a tiny bit dated but it did not impact our time there. It was perfect for our family of 4."

Stayed August 2021

"Such a Gem !!! - We had such an amazing time at your property !! It is so convenient to the center of Seaside and has a beach access right next door. You can’t get any better than this staring out at the ocean from your back patio and living room. The house is so comfortable and has everything one could need. Would definitely stay there again. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us !!"

"Best of the best location - Location was easy walking distance from seaside and beach location was away from the Condos toward Seagrove which means less people on beach in front of the house. The house had great views which never got old. The house is mostly untouched since the 60s when it was built with cool floors and walls and retro furniture. It is not super fancy but we really enjoyed the home and the kids enjoyed having their house in the annex. Again just a great location. We have been to this area several times and we liked this location."
