Romantic cottage with shared pool, quick beach access, & plenty of charm!

Surprise your special someone with an escape to this charming carriage home located in the famous Seaside community. Featuring shared pools (available for a fee), easy beach access, and all the amenities of home, your stay promises to be hassle-free so you can spend your time exploring!

Located just a short walk from the picturesque shores of Florida's white sand beach, you'll be less than two miles from Grayton Beach State Park, and a little less than 30 miles from Panama City Beach. Take scenic Highway 30A for a fun day trip, or stay right here and relax on the beach.

Just past the Adirondack chairs on the porch, the main living area greets you with refreshing central A/C and rich hardwood floors. Cuddle up on the love seat while you watch your favorite cable show on the flatscreen TV. Bring your favorite DVD and dive into a bowl of hot buttered popcorn to have an in-house movie date.

Whip up a delicious cocktail while the private washer/dryer does the laundry. Kick back on the patio while you sip your drink and connect to the WiFi to book a reservation at a local restaurant.

Listen to some music on the stereo while you get to work on something tasty in the compact kitchenette. Featuring a microwave, coffee maker, and full-size fridge, making a few small bites or heating up some leftovers will be a piece of cake. You'll also have the chance to show off your grilling skills on the charcoal grill.

This one-bedroom, one-bathroom home is perfect for two people to enjoy a romantic escape (the maximum occupancy is three guests, with two adults at most). In the bedroom on the upper level, you'll be treated to a queen-size bed, direct access to a balcony, and small sitting area. In the bathroom, there is a shower/tub combo and modern vanity area.

Take your morning cup of coffee and a light breakfast out onto the balcony and enjoy the sweet sea breeze. Get all your beach gear ready for a fun-filled day on the sand. Stroll along the shore, or book a trip out onto the high seas to explore the local marine life with a scuba diving excursion.

Walk down the street to the Central Square and wander through the charming shops to find the perfect souvenir to remember your trip. Head over to Grayton Beach State Park and rent a kayak to paddle through the waters and snap a few shots of the lush landscape. Treat your special someone to a fun-filled night out at the quirky Red Bar.

If you're looking for a stress-free getaway for just the two of you, then look no further than this inviting Florida cottage.

This cottage is in such an amazing location! We loved the quick easy beach access and equally quick access to the town square! The owner of the main house was actually there our last couple of days and was so nice and made sure everything was good with our accommodations! Definitely a smaller space but perfect for a romantic get away!

Angel in the Dunes was perfect for our short getaway. The accommodations were nice and just what we needed. However, the shower curtain and liner had mold and mildew and need to be changed out. We were also unable to get the balcony door open upstairs, which was disappointing. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay!

This was our 2nd stay in this charming cottage for the Seaside race weekend. Not as stellar as our first stay as there was no coffee maker (so sad!) and the mattress quality upstairs has declined in the past year, but clean place and perfect location for us. Would like to stay again next year, but will bring my own coffee maker just in case.

Pros: Cute place, very clean, 2 blocks off the main shopping and dining area in Seaside and a couple of blocks to the beach.
Cons: TINY, it’s a guest house in the back of a larger house in a tight neighborhood, it didn’t feel like there was much privacy.
Kathryn K. Feb 2019
This is a great little space. Perfect for two people. I loved it.
Kathryn B. Nov 2018
We just got married in Destin and this was the perfect beach retreat for after the wedding madness to unwind. Thank you!
Nathan S. Oct 2018
Cute, quaint and comfy in a PERFECT location. Only thing keeping this short of a 5 star review was that the furniture was a bit dated and worn out and the mattress was less than stellar.

Wish we were back in Seaside!

This was perfect for Two people! Very comfortable. Furniture very comfortable. We only had one issue being that the shower curtain would attack you when you take a shower(annoying). Other than that, we definitely recommend this location.

Loved our stay in Seaside and in our house, Angel in the Dunes. It was a perfect, cozy house for my husband and me. We were provided with everything we needed for our short stay, too (toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent pods). Great beach feel to it. A little worn, but that's what we appreciate in a beach house! Shower curtain liner is a bit unruly, but that wouldn't keep us from coming back again :)

Great location! Clean and nicely decorated.
Harriett Z. Aug 2018
Neat, clean and bright. Very close to the beach.
Keith H. Jul 2018
This property was ideally located near the heart of Seaside and directly across the Pensacola St. beach access for Seaside guests. For those looking for a modest, no frills, and convenient stay in Seaside, this is perfect.

Air unit dripped on our clothes in the closet, and water was coming out of the rusty light switch to the bedroom. Vacasa doesn’t think this is a problem since it’s noted in their paperwork. We never lowered the air below 74 degrees and according to Vacasa water only leaks if you do so. I sent them a list of things that needed attention in this unit and they blamed air problems on us. Too much maintenance needed in this unit! Vacasa was great for booking our trip, but they lack in Customer Service.
Manager response:
We are incredibly sorry to our guest did not feel taken care of by us. Somehow this situation did not reach our local property manager who would have been happy to get the clothes dry cleaned due to the units dripping. Please keep in mind, they do drip when the temperatures are set too low due to the humidity in the air, and these particular units are serviced every month to keep them in excellent condition. Thank you!

Great location, clean with comfy bed and linens. I would definitely stay here again.
Christine P. Jul 2018
We loved this little cottage! Was perfect for my husband and I. Really enjoyed Seaside and all it had to offer.
Jarrod M. Jul 2018
Was a nice comfy place. I couldn't get the stove to work and the AC was a little warm upstairs during the day, but I think it was because it was just so hot outside! But my wife and I loved our little getaway!
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. The stove has a lock on it that requires both buttons to be held to get in. The A/C has been checked and it is in perfect working condition.

The setting was awesome, I fell in love with all of the picket fences.
Edith A. May 2018
We loved this cottage! It is clean, comfortable and very peaceful. Best of all, it is a very short walk to the beach and to the town center.
Lucy W. May 2018
We loved the location and the rental was great!!
Jill I. Apr 2018
Everything was great and close to everything. My only suggestion is a bigger mirror or seperate mirror else where. Hard for two ladies trying to get ready.
James D. Dec 2017
lovely place, would stay there again!
Mai T. Oct 2017
Had such an amazing stay here with my toddler. Convenient in terms of beach location and shops near by. The house had everything we needed. Wish we could have stayed longer, was the highlight of our trip.
Nadir H. Sep 2017
This cottage was perfect and right in the heart of Seaside. The manager of the property "Parker" made my stay even better with his excellent customer service. A+ service!

We traveled to the area for the wedding and our stay at Angel in the Dunes was perfect! We were provided with easy and clear directions and check-in instructions. The free parking spot out front was very convenient and the parking pass was waiting for us on the table when we arrived. The house was adorable and the perfect size for two. We had everything we needed provided for us. I could not say more good things about the location. Absolutely perfect! It was a very short walk to the beach, the pool, a park, the resort, shops and restaurants. We wanted to rent a bike to travel a little further and they provided us with a discount for a company who delivered and picked up the bike at our location. I had to contact Parker for a few additional things. He was very easy to reach and extremely helpful and accommodating. He went above and beyond to help us and make sure our stay was perfect. We will definitely stay here again!

We loved staying in the bungalow and found the property in excellent condition . The property was well located, comfortable and convenient to all the best activities. The VaCasa staff was extremely friendly and made our trip as easy. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends.

Thanks for a great time!
Erin C. Jul 2017
Great location to the beach, shops and restaurants. We walked everywhere and didn't need a car/cart/bike. Perfect size for just the two of us. The cable/satellite did not work while we were there. Also, the upstairs A/C unit had water dripping if set at 75 degrees or below. Minor items that did not affect our trip but something that needs to be addressed for future guests.
Lucius B. Jun 2017
Seaside is wonderful and this unit is extremely cute and quaint but is in dire need of maintenance and upgrades.
