About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms and 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Gardner's Eden is located just off of 30-A in Seagrove Beach. Situated just 120 yards from the beach, you can easily walk down to the water or to Seaside (literally 10-15 yards away). It is situated on a private, dead-end street with no through traffic. The house is 2 floors with 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths and sleeps up to 7 adults comfortably. In addition, the unbeatable location provides quick and easy access to the state park, local restaurants, shopping, and the neighboring communities (Seaside, Seagrove and Watercolor), yet provides an escape away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds.

Gardner's Eden has an open floor plan, perfect for families or enjoying the company of friends. The large living and dining area flows into the kitchen. Both of the first floor bedrooms contain two twin beds, each with a connected bathroom. The master bedroom and bathroom are located on the second floor. The couch in the living area has a convertible bed (full size).

French doors from the master bedroom open to a balcony which offers a spectacular view of Seaside. A spiral staircase leads to the third floor Crow's Nest, the perfect spot for a late afternoon cocktail as you watch the sun set over Seaside and the ocean. The downstairs porches and decks offer plenty of outdoor space and ways to relax, whether it is cooking dinner on the grill, sitting on the porch swing or enjoying the outdoor shower.

Great house, perfect location, great owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Gardner's Eden for Memorial Day Weekend - 2017. Upon arrival, the place was "as advertised". This is not your average rental house, but rather a home that is cared for by individuals that clearly use the place as a home away from home. As we like to grill out while on vacation, we loved the charcoal grill and the fully stocked kitchen. Other important points worth noting: (1) a bike rack on the side of the house for locking up your bikes that you bring or rent; (2) a water hose out front to wash off after coming in from the beach; (3) a plastic red wagon for rolling your items to the beach - it was a little tired so I'd recommend buying a portable wagon and bringing it with you if you have room in your car but the one at the house got the job done; (4) a close Publix grocery store; and (5) a close fresh seafood market on 30A (Goatfeathers seafood Market). As many others have pointed out, the proximity to Seaside and the beach is perfect and the fact that the house is located on a dead end street is very nice! Lastly, dealing with the owners was a complete delight - they were very responsive to our inquiries about the place and about other questions we had about the area (e.g. - who can we rent beach chairs from). In all, I'd definitely recommend this place for a family beach retreat.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our week long family vacation. Gardner's Eden location couldn't have been better, steps from the beach and Seaside! It was so nice to be on a quiet street with the option to walk into Seaside for shopping and dining. The house was decorated beautifully and the front porch was heaven for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. The living and dining area was spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, a great space for cooking in and pre-dinner appetizers. Beds and pillows were comfortable and each bathroom was large enough for couples and/or multiple children. Overall, we LOVED this house and can not wait to come back next year!

Gardner's Eden Rocks

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this wonderful home. The location is fantastic! This lovely home is located on a quiet dead end street with no through traffic and is just blocks from Seaside town center. Loved that our four young teenagers could bike around Seaside without going out along busy 30A highway. The main family room is spacious and the dining table comfortably sits 8. We also enjoyed the kitchen island with four bar stools. It is a great space for snacks and breakfast. We enjoyed cooking many family dinners in the kitchen. The hammock on the second story balcony was in the shade and peaceful for napping and reading.

The layout with the two bedrooms/two baths downstairs was ideal with the master bedroom/bath upstairs. Everyone had their own space without stepping on each other. The crow's nest was awesome for viewing the ocean and stars.

Very accommodating owner. Would definitely stay here again if our travel plans include the Seaside area!

Our family loved this house! We have rented in Seaside Proper for over 10 years and this house did not disappoint. The main room had 2 couches for everyone to visit and watch TV. The master bedroom and bath was spacious with plenty of storage. The additional bedrooms and baths were comfy as well. The kitchen had plenty of spices, pots and pans. Multiple porches/balconies also a plus. the beach access was very convenient and we were steps from Seaside. Perfect for teenagers (and adults) looking to explore Seaside and Watercolor. The owner was great to work with!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home and close walking access to beach and main Seaside center. Ceiling height in home is higher than pictures give credit and is very spacious in overall feeling. Kitchen is nice and has everything needed to make dinner. Family room with TV, large dining table, bathrooms and bedrooms are nice. No problem with WiFi. Owner is very nice and makes arrangements and communicates easily. I will definitely rent this house again! You will not be disappointed.

Gardners Eden is such a wonderful house. My family and I have stayed in this home for the past several years. My friends and I have even had a girls get away. It is an excellent house, good location. We love the front porch it is perfect for early morning coffee. Very quiet location but everything within walking distance. Very nice furniture the kitchen is equipped with everything you need for making a meal. For my family it is perfect we plan to stay again this summer. The owner is so great to work with!
