Perfect for TWO only at Seaside's 'Picasso Sun'

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

***We ARE NOT on the beach** photo of beach is one of our Seaside Beach Pavillions where you can easily walk and relax..

This unit is perfect for A COUPLE ONLY....or One person..not for children or teens ..no exceptions ......If you have children, please take a look at VRBO Listing #58131 my Picasso Moon....

NO PETS!.....Please do not even ask..answer will always be no......

I do not charge automatically for use of pools and fitness..that is added ONLY if you wish to use.

You are in the heart of everything, do not need to drive anywhere...just park and enjoy.

Although we ARE NOT on the beach, we are just a short stroll to the water's edge!

Imagine... just walk out from your cozy and very much like a European or Paris 'flat' (which we refer to as Picasso Sun) to the rooftop and view all of Seaside and the Gulf of Mexico... put together an intimate dinner with candlelight under the stars, or dash out the door, walk to Bud and Alleys Restaurant and let them cook for you. You can also take a leisurely stroll down the pedestrian street (which is in front of the 'Picasso Sun') to unique boutiques and art galleries which are less than a few hundred yards away. The possibilities are limited only to your imagination.

** If you would like for me to provide a bottle of champagne or flowers or whatever might bring a smile to your companion's face, just let me know in advance and I'll take care of it and add it to your final bill. **


Now... you can focus on your living SPACE at my PIcasso sun, which is a two room unit designed with a trendy New York loft style architecture...some folks consider it more European style....I have even had a recent guest describe it like a flat they had in Paris!

Only one bedroom with a queen bed, very cozy . The compact living/dining/kitchen area is equipped with a small stove, refrigerator and microwave. If you are looking for an upscale Ritzz Carlton type unit....WE ARE NOT.... All linens are included with your stay. We have no balconies, however,the open rooftop can be accessed easily out your door and up the stairs We are not the typical Condo style unit and we are not the typical beachside community. Seaside has so much to offer for a vacation or weekend getaway.

It feels like a small European village with parks and shops and the gorgeous emerald green GULF OF MEXICO at your disposal. You can hear the bell ring when sunset officially falls and night begins. An outdoor theater is provided and once during the week you can see movies under the stars with outdoor concerts in the park area.

Sorry, pets and smoking are NOT allowed in our 'Picasso Sun.' I live above the Picasso sun and moon and of course, will meet you when you arrive.

About Bert

Jim and Bert live in Seaside...and they live above the Picasso Moon and Sun. Bert is a Realtor and has been since 1985, first in Tennessee and since 1998 in Florida. Since they purchased the building, Bert 'inherited' the art/toy/gallery on the first level, and has been running it successfully for 7 years. They love it in Seaside and are happy and excited to share their special place with others.

Bert purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Bert chose Seaside

Owning this special place in Seaside makes it possible for us to live our dream and also share this fabulous spot on the Gulf of Mexico with others. WE try to keep the rates reasonable enough to balance between paying for our dream and allowing others to enjoy and Seaside is a special place that once you arrive, you will want to come back time and time again.

What makes this apartment unique

This darling little loft type apartment is perfect for two....and You walk out the front door to shops and resturants and right now, I am hearing the Chapel chime 11:00 . You hear the bells and the noises of this fabulous community, almost like you are living and enjoying a small European city by the sea.

Please Please Please...if you are looking for a Ritzz Carlton type of accommodations, THIS IS NOT...we are trendy, bohemian and artsy....so don't expect something we are not and then complain.

A Hidden Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

Great location with easy access to all the fun in Seaside!! Cozy, fun and charming accommodations! My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay here. Loved listening to the music from the awesome rooftop! It was so nice up there on our last evening with the slight breeze and setting sun. A perfect end to our stay.

Owner's Response: Deb, thank you for taking the time to review our "Paris style" apartment.. It is perfect for guests like you who "get it".... we are not fancy, but we try to accommodate that traveler who wants a great spot where they can easily walk, run, bike and eat at all sorts of interesting places, and still have a quiet and restful place to lay their head down at night. Please come back and remind me you are a returning guest for my returning guest discount... bert

Perfect Get Away for Two

  • 5 of 5

The Picasso Sun has become our rental of choice. You cannot beat this location at this price. You are in the heart of Seaside with easy access to all of the shops, restaurants, and beaches. You don't even need to rent a bicycle! The owner's description is 100% accurate. This is a small, funky rental with everything you need. Well kept, clean, and charming. I can't imagine staying anywhere else for our Seaside vacations.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review. And we are so glad you continue to come back to our Picasso Sun. I think you were here for 30A songwriters weekend, which is always so much fun. The unit is perfect for our "weekend warriors". We are expecting you back again next year...and one special perk we offer is a returning guest discount. bert

We are currently enjoying Picasso Sun for the first time. It's tiny but perfect for 2. We can't wait to come back really soon.

Owner's Response: Regi, we are so glad that your stay with us at the Picasso Sun was an enjoyable one. I know you liked the fact that you could step out of your unit and you were at the market, or restaurants, or listening to the music on the green. Hoping for a quick return, and let me know you are a returning guest for that returning guest discount. bert
