Southern Comfort cottage strives to please the most pampered guest. Every inch of this 2600 sq' interior is imbued with authentic ambiance of a cottage one might find in the heart of Provence. It is an ongoing labor of love for the owner. Needless to say it is at a standard well above a typical rental.

The hearth and heart of the home is the kitchen/den where 14 plus people easily can gather with comfortable seating for everyone. French doors open to shaded porch with extra seating. A queen bedroom for the guest unable to navigate stairs is on this ground level.

On the 2nd floor is the spacious Master bedroom which has the space for a baby crib if needed. Here also is the 2nd queen bedroom, full washer and dryer.

On the 3rd floor is the bunk room/playroom (4 beds), a 3rd queen bedroom and a King bedroom.

Southern Comfort's theme echoes the owner's childhood memories of visits to the French countryside. The decor is an eclectic melange of well chosen pieces. Matisse inspires the richly hued color palette. Reminiscent of bygone days are the white marble baths, claw foot tub, AGA stove & duvet-clad bedding. So come, step back into a simpler time and enjoy!

Southern Comfort: A Beautiful, Relaxing, Well-Appointed Seaside Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in Southern Comfort over President's Day Weekend and it was AMAZING. The house is beautifully decorated and felt like a second home. Often you stay in rentals and many things are either broken or missing. Not the case here, Southern Comfort looked well-kept, updated and stocked with all the dishes, pots/pans, cookie sheets, towels, bowls, soaps and even a crockpot! You can tell the owners have put tremendous energy and care into their home. They really thought of everything. We enjoyed having the open kitchen and family room, so we could cook and watch the boys play at the same time.

The bedrooms are fantastic! Are 2 boys loved the bunk room upstairs and the master suite has probably one of the most comfortable bed ever. Again, there were only the 4 of us, so we didn't stay in but 2 of the 6 bedrooms!

The location could not be any better. We were a one minute walk to the pool, playground, shuffle boards and field. And a five minute walk to the beach. Every day we walked or rode bikes to the beach, then stopped at the market square on the way home. Everything is within walking distance or a bike ride. If you don't want to drive after you arrive, you do not have to...this is another reason Southern Comfort is great.

I cannot say enough about Southern Comfort and Seaside. It really was the perfect house for a fun and relaxing weekend on the coast. Looking forward to another visit!

Lynn's 10

  • 5 of 5

This was our 26Th year to visit Seaside, and we found the best house yet! We found Southern Comfort, very aptly named! Our large family of 10, now 2parents and 4 younger adult couples (with babies on the way) had plenty of room for both privacy as well as for family time. The house itself was spectacularly built, with all of the finishing touches of a loved and planned home- not just a house. It was also without some of the fearful and dangerous lofts and stairwells we have seen at some homes. We can bring our grandchildren here for years to come!

We had several large family meals with plenty of seating, as well as ample dishes, pots and pan, unlike most houses we have stayed in. Also loved plenty of seating in the den area, and it was nice to have the kitchen and den open so we could all visit as the meal was prepared. We also had some fun scrabble games in that large den!

Another plus was having bedrooms separated on all 3 floors and for each room to have its own private full bath was very convenient. The location next to the fitness center and round pool was very handy, as was the short walk to our beloved Tupelo Pavillion. We stayed during a June heat wave, but the house was close enough to beach and pool that we were able remain comfortable

I cannot recommend any house higher, and we have stayed in at least 40+ since 1989, sometimes several times a year as we tended to grow out of everywhere we stayed, with friends, then significant others. You will not be disappointed in this home, rather you will believe it to be much more beautiful than the pictures.

Large group, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Went with another family for a weekend getaway. I've been to Seaside several times over the years and this is definitely the nicest house that we've stayed in to date. The interior is absolutely gorgeous, and lacks the gawdy character that seems to be so pervasive in Seaside's decor. The kitchen is very spacious and excellent for cooking! They had very large pots + multiple ovens, which worked exceptionally well for cooking large quantities and allowed us to have some variety in our meals. The location is ideal! I love to run, but when it gets too hot, there is a small, inconspicuous, private exercise facility (for Seaside renters only!), that is less than 20 seconds away from the house! There is also a playground and basketball court very close by, but it is well hidden and was never crowded during our stay. You only need to walk three minutes before having your feet in the sand, or your hands on samples from market vendors in the square. Every evening, we took this 3-minute walk to the Tupelo Street beach pavilion (private, for Seaside renters only!), with flutes in hand, and drank champagne as we watched the sunset. We had such a lovely time during our stay here, and look forward to staying at Southern Comfort during our next trip to Seaside!

A Wonderful Stay in a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends wanted one last trip to to the beach before winter so we made plans to stay Seaside. The house is in one of the newer parts of Seaside and the whole block is gorgeous. We've stayed in Seaside before and the majority of the houses are going on 30 years old but most of these homes are less than 10 (and it shows). Southern Comfort was much more impressive in person, the pictures don't do it justice. The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail are apparent. The open kitchen and living room made for a wonderful socializing space (and dining for 8 was no problem). The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in and had everything we needed and more. The house has loads of bathrooms, you're never too far from one and it makes getting ready to go out a breeze. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The outdoor balconies were great for coffee/wine and great conversation. The beach and center of town are just a few minute walk and there are 2 pools and a gym a stone's throw away. The whole vibe of the house was great and we couldn't have asked for a better stay. Seaside is an absolutely magical place, can't recommend it enough!

Great Extended Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Southern Comfort twice and find it a very comfortable fit for our extended family (6 adult children and spouses and 6 grandchildren =14 total). The house is nicely appointed and located, but the very best part is Molly with Homeowners' Collection! Her assistance and charm were both greatly appreciated. She understands that the renters are there to relax and she handles all the stress.
