Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Seaside Cottage 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8) Short Walk to Beach

Nobellah’s Retreat is a great place to spend time with family and friends and get away from the hustle and bustle in a professionally decorated home with all the conveniences. Pensacola Street in Seaside is ideally located for quick access to the spectacular beach, the Westside pool and Seaside town square, all a very short walk from the house. There is a network of sand footpaths between picket fences which lead in many directions including around the adorable guest house just in back, Angel in the Dunes. *Our property is part of the Seaside collection which received a 98% guest satisfaction score!

A large, open-area 1st floor combines a very comfortable sitting area and entertainment center with a game area for adults as well as kids. The grand staircase in this open area is perfect for a bride’s entrance. With the new modern spacious kitchen with all brand new appliances from 2015, and a dining area adjacent to the sitting area, the cooks won’t get left out of the conversation. Free Internet access is available, and the TV has a blu ray player connected to the wifi that can stream amazon and netflix films!

The downstairs bedrooms have a themed décor --nautical and garden, one has a queen size bed, the other has two twin beds. Both bedrooms have new wood floors and have separate bathrooms. The upstairs Master “tropical” suite has a queen size bed with a wonderful private bath, and a separate sitting room with a trundle bed. The spacious, air-conditioned third story tower can sleep four comfortably on two new Pottery Barn bunks, but there is no adjacent bathroom. This tower is a great hangout for kids or teens, and of course, for adults at sunset with a cocktail in hand. The tower has a wonderful deck with adirondack chairs. The view from the tower is simply one of the best in Seaside.

In Seaside, guests can gain access to 3 swimming pools, 6 tennis courts, and a fitness center.

You will benefit from the top notch personalized service we provide including the best cleaning service and management team around. All of the services we provide with our dream vacation property ensure your satisfaction and we are proud of this complete “Seaside Experience.”

Seaside is proud to say they are the only beach town that has won world recognition from Frommer’s travel guide in 2010.

Why William Jobe chose South Walton

We have lots to say but it comes down to a couple things… If you love an unspoiled beach, friendly people, and natural beauty then this is the life for you. Some of our globe trotting friends asked us why we bought in Seaside when we could go someplace different each time. The answer – there is only one Seaside and we are always happy here.

What makes this cottage unique

Nobellah’s Retreat is such a comfortable place that is in an ideal location within Seaside. The huge front porch is perfect for morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and snacks, and evening gatherings. The Seaside town is equally great as the social center for a big group because of the numerous amount of eateries and shopping enjoyed by all. The Emerald Coast region is incredible and we are sure you’ll discover your perfect beach vacation.

Great location, good accomodations, minor fixes

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a really good time here. The location was amazing. The commons space in the home was beautiful and comfortable. But I do wish a couple small things would have been different.

The pillows were like at my granny's house. :) Small and very flat. So my mom and I purchased 3 new pillows for our stay (since we were staying a week.) We left them at the house so hopefully no new guests will have the same issue! Also, the guest bed on the first floor makes a loud thud noise when you get in or out of the bed. Annoying if your partner is waking and getting up before you.

The staff was kind and agreeable. I would say their response rate before and during our stay was about 80%. I don't feel like we had excessive questions, but it would have been nice to hear back on everything. A welcome packet at the home would have been great too. We had to text the staff to find the laundry and know where to put the trash.

My big kids loved the 3rd floor bunk room. It's not for the young children though, as the ladder up is STEEP. I'd say anyone over the age of 5 would have an easy time getting up unassisted. One night when it was stormy the french doors literally blew open in that room. Luckily my husband had been up there the first night with the kids to help them adjust and he got up and closed and tried to secure the doors. I will say when we let the staff know they came over the next day and checked the doors and made sure they were locked. They doors still seemed a bit insecure overall, but we didn't have any other issues after that first night.

Overall again a great stay. We were happy with the home and staff. I think we just wished they had paid a little closer attention to details with this caliber of home and decor.

Great house! Perfect walking distance from town center, beach and WaterColor.

  • 4 of 5

Wish there were tvs in each room rather than just one in the living room. The toilet seat in guest bath is coming unattached and the Master toilet cycled.

Other than those minor issues, we had a fabulous time. Loved the house and we would definitely stay again!!

Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about Nobellah's Retreat.....the location so close to the beach, the spacious design with soaring ceilings and expansive sunny windows, the spotless, tasteful décor, and the well stocked, updated kitchen and baths. Since we had visitors for a few days, we really appreciated that all three bedrooms had private baths. The wrap around porch was perfect for visiting with guests, or just sitting reading and enjoying the weather. We also liked that the house is set back a little with nice landscaping in front for a little more privacy. This design and colors seems a bit unique compared to other homes in Seaside, and we found it just charming. Two things would make this the perfect rental....a king bed in the master suite, and gas logs in the fireplace. We will definitely be back!

Nobellah's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We joined our daughter's family for a post-Christmas vacation in Seaside Florida this year. They have vacationed in the area for several years and helped us locate a beautiful house a block from the beach. Nobellah's Retreat was just that. The property is beautiful with ample sleeping room for our three grandchildren, their parents and my wife and I. It's convenient to the town center, literally within walking distance. We rented a golf cart. Some neighbors rented bicycles but almost everyone walked! The house is spotlessly clean, the kitchen stocked with all the necessities, and "everything worked!" The day of our arrival, we were contacted with a Welcome Aboard message and a telephone number in case we needed anything. That's always helpful when vacationing in a strange town and something breaks! In our case, it didn't. There are a number of good restaurants in the town center as well as food trucks. We particularly enjoyed breakfast at Pickles and dinner at the Great Southern cafe. All in all, it was a perfect trip and we would recommend Nobellah's Retreat without hesitation. Book it and you'll have a fantastic time. We are already talking about next year's vacation in Seaside.

Nice property, great management and thoughtful owners!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in Seaside just as a tropical system decided to take hold in the area, so we spent ALOT of time in the house! The downstairs is all recently redone and is pretty and spacious. We loved having two tables for different groups of puzzles and gamers all while being able to catch the Olympic action on TV. The kitchen had everything we needed for a few nights of cooking and plenty of dishes for all 8 of us. There is a leak in the master shower and they were very responsive, and the outside shower was fantastic anyway, so we were happy to avoid the water clean-up that way! I would suggest a few internal hooks for the shower curtain outside since in windier conditions, the view may be more than the neighbors would appreciate😬򛀠I would warn that the bunk room is straight up a ladder with no rest room so kiddos are coming into the master, and the ladder may not be suitable for all ages, especially at night. It also gets quite warm up there, particularly if you have sunshine! The location is awesome, close to the beach, close enough to town, close to the pool, but it was still very quiet, which was fantastic! We loved sitting on the front porch in the morning drinking coffee and wishing the rain and clouds away!
