Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 5, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

Our beautiful beach house, named Muriel's Grove, is in a highly preferred location that is absolutely wonderful for a vacation. It has all the beauty and amenities of Seaside but at considerable $$ savings.

The beaches in this area, 'America's Most Beautiful,' are fabulous! Bordered by high sand dunes, the beach is wide with sugar white sand, and the warm water is emerald green.

Muriel's Grove is close to the beach (200 yards) and right next door to a large, beautiful swimming pool. It is in the very popular 'Grove by the Sea' community, a quiet and relaxing neighborhood of lovely seaside cottages nestled in a grove of magnolias and pine trees, that includes tennis, a children's play area, two swimming pools, and walking/biking paths.

Decorated in light, bright colors with a beach cottage theme, the house is beautifully furnished. There are hardwood floors throughout, and all the rooms have French doors that open to decks and the tropical paradise outside. Plantation shutters on the windows provide a wonderful sense of southern charm. Muriel's Grove is a special house that you will simply fall in love with.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped, and the dining area has seating for 11. On the first floor, there is one bedroom (two twin beds) and a queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room. Upstairs are two bedrooms (king bed, queen bed), and a studio room (full sized futon) that can be used as an extra bedroom if needed.

Safe, off road trails and sidewalks (perfect for walking, jogging, rollerblading, and biking) provide easy access to the many wonderful nearby recreational areas. Grayton Beach (4 miles), Grayton Beach State Park (2.5 miles), Point Washington State Forest (1.5 miles), Deer Lake State Park (3.5 miles) and Camp Creek Golf Club (5 miles) are just minutes away. The architecturally famous town of Seaside is just 0.9 mile away; you'll love its many colorful homes, small shops, and restaurants. Throughout the year, you can enjoy the many scheduled free events that Seaside has to offer.

Early risers can enjoy spectacular sunrises and the wide open space at the beach. Better yet, change the routine - sleep in, open the French doors, and listen to the birds outside. After a late breakfast, build sandcastles, swim and play with the kids, or take a walk on the beach down to Seaside. Enjoy lunch outside on the picnic table in the woods, or take a nap in our hammock and chairs beneath the pines and magnolia next to the pool.

You won't want to miss the fabulous sunsets either! In the evenings you can grill fresh seafood outside on the gas grill or just cook spaghetti for the kids. Enjoy dinner with your entire group seated at our large dining table as you share the day's activities with each other. After dinner walk or bike to Seaside and treat everyone to ice cream...or take a dip in the pool, and then relax on the wraparound decks under the ceiling fans as you listen to the sounds of the surf and woods. Later yet, go to the beach, lie on your back, and look at the stars.

WOW!--it doesn't get any better!!!

About the Owner

Jim and I both retired to the Grove by the Sea in the fall of 2003. Our permanent residence is just 50 yards away from Muriel's Grove. We are available in a moment's notice should any problems occur during the rental season.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all really enjoyed our stay at Muriel's grove for spring break. Everything was perfect & we really appreciated the extras you provided.

You have 2 lovely homes & I can see why you decided to make it your permanent residence!



Not sure what our plans are for next year, but will let you know if it's in Seagrove.

We had a fantastic week staying at Muriel's Grove. The house had everything we needed for 5 adults and a toddler. The beach was a short walk from the house and the pool was literally next door. We hated to leave and look forward to returning. Thanks Debbie, the house was as you have portrayed it!

Owner's Response: I am sorry we were out of town and did not get to meet you and your family. AND I owe you a big apology for not having the baby equipment put out before we left town. We hope you will come back to Muriel's Grove.

Grove by the Sea, "What a place to stay".

This is the third and definitely not the last time for us to stay here. Wonderful location and great owners. A few short steps to the pool and a few more to the beach. Close to several great places to eat or several markets if you decide to eat in and use the full stock kitchen. Bring your bikes or rent one near by. Highly recommend staying here.

My family visits FL often and this was the most comfortable, well-equipped house we have rented. It was peaceful, wonderful location for all of us, children loved the bike rides in the grove and the pool. Adults liked having two areas for sitting rooms/watching TV's and areas for reading. House was bright and cheery and very clean. There were three adults and two children in our party and we all had our own space. Would highly recommend for any age group.

Owner's Response: Thanks. We appreciate your comments. One of the things we think is most important is that the house is always super clean. We enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you back at MG.

Great Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
We loved Muriel's Grove! We would definitely return to this property and highly recommend it! The house is very comfortable, well stocked and the location can not be beat. It's decor is "beachy"with fun bright colors. It sits on a large shaded and nicely landscaped lot right next to a swimming pool in the most charming quiet neighborhood. Best of all, we found it to be a very quick walk to the amazing beach (about 5 minutes). Seaside action is minutes away and walkable.
The owners were wonderful to work with and the home is as pictured. The wrap around porches were charming, the gas grille appreciated and beds were comfortable. Our adult kids enjoyed the neighborhood tennis court and we rented bikes while we were there too. The surrounding area is great for biking. The whole area around there is the best, and believe me we checked everything out!

Great for a family!

  • 5 of 5
We had 4 adults and 3 kids under 3 and had a wonderful stay. The house was clean and well stocked and even came with some baby gear (pack and play, high chair and baby gate) which was a huge benefit to us! The beach was an easy walk just down the road and Seaside was about a 20 minute walk with strollers and little ones in tow. All in all we found it to be a great value for the price and loved how private the property was while still being so close to everything. The owners made check in a breeze and were very easy to work with. We will be recommending this house to friends and hope to be back one day ourselves too :-)

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We were so happy to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday week at Muriel's Grove! We have two young children (2.5 and 14 months) and the owners were very accommodating with a highchair, booster, pack and play and a late check out (off season!) so we didn't have to hang around the airport for hours with two babies. My in laws joined us and we never felt crowded, 4 adults and two babies. We used the BBQ, the hammock, the sand toys were awesome so was the wagon to roll the kids back and forth to the beach. I'd say the beach is about 2.5 blocks from the beach wich for us is perfect, we had privacy but could walk back and forth easily. Seaside is within biking distance, and I would say walking distance too, maybe not with little ones though. WE WILL BE BACK!

Location

From the Owner

We vacationed in this area for many of the years that we lived in Birmingham. Thinking that our kids, who are beach lovers, would always find a way to come visit us here at the beach. we planned to retire to Muriel's Grove. Instead we built our permanent home in the same neighborhood so that we could continue to share Muriel's Grove with families who love the beach as much as we do.

Amenities

From the Owner

We love going to Seaside's Modica Market in for coffee and a muffin during our morning walks. You can park your car and ride bikes to just about anywhere on 30A. Our personal favorite is sitting on the porch with our morning coffee while listening to the birds in one of the most peaceful settings along 30A..
