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.

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!

The house had enough space and loved all of the balconies. The walk to the beach is a bit far, but a beautiful view and it’s not very crowded. Would definitely stay here again!"

The house itself is very large with and spacious with comfy couches, cozy beds, beautiful beachy decor & feels like a home. We were able to connect to the Roku smartTV in the living room and use our favorite apps for our little ones favorite morning shows. We also took full advantage of the large screened porch which was perfect for our 2 & 3 year old, they particularly loved the swing. We spent tons of time during our week long stay at the beach and two days at the WaterSound West pool. The beach access & boardwalk are beautiful & there was tons of public space to sprawl out on the beach. I also highly recommend visiting Inlet Beach public access while you’re staying, we loved it for our littles as the waves were much smaller & more kid friendly and there were lots of other kiddos there for them to play with. We also loved riding around the area on the four bikes provided by Captain’s Cottage and even ventured up to Seaside Beach & Seaside Central Square on them. We did have a bit of a problem checking in with our door access code but RealJoy responded super quickly to my message and fixed the problem within about 10 minutes & it was smooth sailing from there. Overall, we would highly recommend staying at Captain’s Cottage in WaterSound West and look forward to staying here again in the very near future."
