House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

We are running a SPRING SPECIAL for the weeks of April 12 - May 16 for a rate of $2200/week plus tax. That's a savings of $1050 for the week of April 12th, and $300 for the weeks of April 19 - May 16. Don't wait, this Special is only for a short time.

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

shuttersbythesea(.)com, and click on the Guests link.

Thanks you for looking at Shutters.

A beautiful oasis!

We booked Shutters for my daughter's senior high school spring break. It was her dream to spend her final spring break in high school with her friend's and her brother and his friends. So, my husband and I bravely agreed to chaperone 8 teen-agers for the week! After many hours of searching on line last April, we settled on Shutters. Let me say, this is one of greatest values on any rental property in the area. The location is ideal, and because the house is completely surrounded by beautiful tropical plants and shrubs there is total privacy. The pool area is lovely and heated for the chilly spring weather. AND... this owner does not charge a huge fee to heat the pool as some do. The house and guest house are all hardwood floors which is perfect, everything is fresh and clean and light. The furnishings and decor scream "fun beach vacation"! We appreciated the whimsical original artwork throughout the house and also enjoyed meeting the Mason's by seeing their family photos around the house.

We also appreciated the high quality toiletry products that were placed in the bathrooms. All of the linens were clean and new. So many rentals have ratty towels and sheets that make you wonder how clean the house really is! The kitchen was well stocked with everything that we needed to prepare a complete meal or just grill out by the pool (brand new grill). My husband and I enjoyed cocktail hour in the crow's nest every afternoon. Much needed after of day of chaperoning! There is a pretty view of the ocean and beach from the top. Shutters offered so much privacy for our group. Not only were we able to separate the girls from the boys because of the lovely guest house, the large decks offered a private spot for anyone needing to "get away".

Overall, this was absolutely the best rental home we have ever rented. Actually, it exceeded all of our expectations!!

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.

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.
