Shutters by the Sea is one of the nicest and most sought after rental homes in Seagrove Beach. We are perfectly located, decorated, and maintained, and over half our guests make a reservation for next year as soon as they leave. Please check the availability calendar, and then give us a call. You will not find a better home for the price on 30-A. Below are a couple quotes I have received in emails from recent guests. ??We really enjoyed our week -- beautiful home, comfortably and thoroughly furnished, perfect location with respect to both the beach and the towns.??

We just wanted to let you know that we LOVED our vacation at Shutters. It was just perfect. We went from pool to beach to pool back to beach! Location was really nice and we had perfect weather. The atmosphere at Shutters could not be better. It is charming as well as comfortable. The decor is wonderfully tasteful - you don't miss a beat. Every thing you needed for cooking grilling and relaxing was provided. One can see the personal pride and love you have for your special place. Enjoyed meeting your family through your pictures. Thank you again for sharing your gem of a beach house. We will recommend it to friends as well as make a swift return as soon as we get the dates squared away. Everyone was giddily and only too sad to leave.

Guests May 4 - 11 2012

Enjoy a relaxing, sun filled vacation at 'Shutters by the Sea.' Our beautiful, four plus bedroom house is located just one half mile from the charming town of Seaside Florida.

'Shutters' boasts all the style and architectural detail of a Seaside home, for about half the price.

The main house has three bedrooms plus a third floor tower room with futon. The Guest House is a very spacious, yet private residence with bed and bathroom, living room and morning kitchen. In all, you’ll enjoy over 3300 square feet of interior living space and 2200 square feet of wrap-around porches and patios. All beautifully landscaped with indigenous plantings, swaying palm trees, and your very own 20 foot x 20 foot private heated pool. Best of all, you’re just 100 yards from the sugary white beaches, and turquoise blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

About the Owner

Beverly & Michael Mason have been coming to the Seaside/30-A area since 1994. In 2002 we bought “Shutters by the Sea” and began our beach house rental business. But before we were owners, we were renters just like you. Over the years we’ve stayed in a few nice rental homes, and some pretty bad ones. Houses where all the furniture is threadbare, the wood floors are completely worn, none of the flatware matches, and there’s not enough cookware to make a full meal. WE CAN’T STAND THAT! From day one we vowed to always keep Shutters in top shape, and thoroughly cleaned after each rental . Today, a full 30% of each rental goes toward maintenance, cleaning and annual upgrades. That’s one of the reason our business has been so successful with almost half our guests returning each year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As much as we encourage our guest to come to this

web site and add a comment, so far none have

responded. We DO have a guest book in our house

which many, many people have signed and judging by

their comments they have throughly enjoyed staying at

Shutters by the Sea. Below I have transcribed some of

our Guestbook comments and enterred them here. If

you would like to view scans of our actual guestbook

and see these same comments in the handwriting of

the people who enterred them, please go to

Thanks you for looking at Shutters.

As advertised

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Shutters. Everything was exactly as advertised including beach access. The pool is private and idea for the grandkids and adults. The proximity to Seaside made it easy to enjoy the amenities there, but we preferred the Shutters location as it is not nearly as congested. A much more relaxed location. We would highly recommend Shutters.

Thanks Shutters by the Sea--Our third year to stay at your home!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 8- consisting of three families from 5 different locations- just spent a wonderful week at Shutters by the Sea. This was our third year to vacation at Shutters. We love the beach, house, swimming pool, and the restaurants and shopping in the area. Also, near golf courses for the men. The house is well-maintained and always clean and ready for us when we arrive. I would recommend this house to anyone for a great family vacation home. We love it and plan to return next year for our fourth time!!!!

Our stay at Shutters by the Sea

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our second stay at Shutters by the Sea and once again it was unforgettable. What a wonderful and welcoming home. It has absolutely everything our family needs and the owners are so accommodating.
The pool courtyard is gorgeous and private. Although we love to eat out, nothing is more fun than the memories made hanging out at the pool, grilling, playing games and swimming.
We rode our bikes or walked daily to Seaside, Watercolor, and Grayton Beach. Unlimited fun with restaurants, shopping, entertainment and of course the ocean which is directly across the street. There are also beautiful views from the upper deck of the home which was a perfect spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset.The home has such a beautiful easy breezy feel, we could all instantly relax the moment we arrived from the airport.
The proximity to everything is perfect. We only used the car to go to Rosemary beach or Alyss Beach for golfing and an evening outdoor movie.
There is a reason this is our second stay and I'm sure not our last. That is because this is a wonderful home in a magical area and the Masons are so accommodating.
Thank you Michael and Beverly!

Great location and rental experience

  • 4 of 5
Would definitely rent from the owners again. First time a owner refunded my security deposit in a timely manner. Location is great. Avoided the spring break crowds of Water Color and Seaside while still being within biking distance to Seaside. Pool was great and they heated to an enjoyable temperature during the chilly spring days.

Wonderful Home For Our Family Vacation....Breathtaking Beach Just Steps Away And Close To Seaside!!

  • 5 of 5
We are fresh from our terrific family vacation at Shutters By The Sea and are ready to go back! What a relaxing, cheery and inviting house to stay in! It was perfect for our needs as a family of 8! From the easy going mornings where we enjoyed a cup of coffee on the porch swing or a pleasant walk on the beach up to Modica Market in Seaside for a cuppa joe (with a splash of sweet, laid back southern charm tossed in!) to the late mornings and afternoons on the beach we loved it all! With the recent heat wave, the Shutters' pool was the perfect respite from the heat of the day on the beach and in the very warm waters of the Gulf. From the time that we booked this trip last winter to the last day of our stay, we could really sense the genuine hospitality of the Mason Family. Their painstaking care and upkeep of this lovely home is evident throughout.

We brought our bikes, so it was wonderful to be able to ride in to Seaside for a little rubber necking at all the great architecture, a little bit of shopping, a concert on the green or cone of shave ice (highly recommend the lime and coconut combination!). Publix is close by and there were so many great restaurants to choose from. But...nothing beats a cold cocktail on the beach or in Shutter's Tower Room Deck to watch another beautiful sunset over the Gulf.

This is truly a special home in a superb location for our needs. It's always great (and a relief) when you find a great place to spend your vacation...you'll just know it from the moment you turn the key at Shutters and walk in the door. We will be back again!

Location

From the Owner

We came down looking to buy a private (non rental) second home, but as soon as we saw Shutters we knew it was the one. It had a perfect layout, a great pool and deck area, and was so close to the beach. The only problem was it was twice as much as we were planning on spending. Then I had the idea of buying this home as a rental property. We've never looked back. One of the best decisions of our lives as we have provided so many memories for our family and countless others.

Shutters by the Sea is 1/2 mile from Seaside and Watercolor. Enjoy all the activities, dining, and shopping of Seaside or Watercolor, but with the privacy of Seagrove Beach. All this for about half the price of Seaside or Watercolor.
