There are so many gulf views to take in at “Paradise Cottage Too,” you won’t believe. From the home’s expansive decks, through its many windows, even at its stunning poolside, each guest will imbibe a much needed and healthy dosage of Vitamin Sea.
This quiet Gulf-front cottage sits in an amazingly private location in the heart of Seagrove. With 4 bedrooms, a loft equipped with twin beds, and a lower level bunkroom, the home spans 3 floors. As you walk through, you will not believe how many windows offer vistas of the water! The private beach walk and sitting gazebo offer places to sip coffee, wine, or just to have that long awaited conversation with someone close.

For those seeking the simplicity—and the heart—of Old Florida, this home offers so much. Yet it does NOT sacrifice in the department of modern conveniences. The home includes chic and playful décor, and whimsical spaces. Outdoor decks and living seem to link together and never end, but eventually do lead to everyone’s favorite spot: the powder white sand.

The cottage pool is one to remember—a paradise all its own—with Gulf views and beautiful groves of greenery surrounding. You will experience your own private slice of Florida just steps away from the beach, and all the while, Seagrove and Seaside restaurants, galleries and shops are practically at your fingertips.

On the 1st floor, there is a convenient walk-out access to the pool, refreshing outdoor shower, and a private beach walkway beckoning you to explore the tranquil shores.

On the 2nd floor, there is a King master bedroom with a daybed and twin trundle, along with a private bathroom. Additionally, there is a King bedroom with a shared full bathroom, and a Queen bedroom with shared full bathroom and Gulf views. The living area seamlessly blends with a spacious kitchen, offering dining for up to 14 guests indoors, with additional seating available outside on charming picnic tables.

On the 3rd floor, there is a Queen bedroom with a shared bathroom, a loft area with 2 twin beds, and a spacious full bathroom.

Fabulous location, Older home

by Norman Ok

4 of 5

This property was clean for the most part. The location and views cannot be beat, but it seems the previous tenants had partied pretty hard there. Our family of 6 arrived at our 4pm checkin time only to find 2 maintenance people inside trying to repair some tvs. This was pretty awkward and unsettling to be honest. They were kind and left after about 45 min. So we couldnt unpack and head to the beach until then. There were quote a few things broken that they came and fixed by the end of the next day: shattered coffee pot, exposed live wires from a previously removed wall fire alarm (scary), nails sticking up out of the wood walkway to beach (several kids got hefty splinters),. Other things they did not fix... broken window shad that was hanging down when we arrived— couldnt raise blocking view of ocean, hole in door ina bedroom, shower handles dangling and large gap front door allowing insect pests inside. When we went to make breakfast for the family the first morning, turned on the oven and smelled something weird. We found an entire dish of old macaroni and cheese in the oven, the coffee pot had been shattered and left, and mustache stickers on the walls??

On the positive side, beds are pretty comfortable but definitely not luxurious, the convenience to the beach is amazing. It comes with one beach set up every day (2 chairs and 1 umbrella that Vaucazen comes to set up before 9am right in front of the ocean). There a sand wash off shower in the back. The place is very large with many beds and bathrooms. You are an 8 min drive to Publix. They over 2 old rusty bikes to ride one with flat tire). The pool
Was clean but very small. Hot tub. There is a large storage container (outside in back) of sand toys, some beach chairs (some broken, some not), pool noodles, flippers, balls, etc. you can use. So don’t buy any before you get there and see what they have to use! All in all it was a good stay but I think we all expected a nicer place

Private place with a million dollar view!

by Americus GA

5 of 5

We had a group of 17 ladies and really enjoyed the trip and accommodations. It was clean, well stocked and comfortable. The pool is great. There is a lot of privacy due to trees and growth around pool. (Much more that this picture portrays.) The hot tub is not a hot tub in the summer, evidently.
The only complaint we had about the place is the outdoor seating on the main level. There are only two chairs and two picnic tables. We would have preferred more chairs, bc the picnic tables are uncomfortable after a while. The outdoor shower is not in working order, but there are two other wash-off areas. There are ample beach toys, buckets, pool noodles, a big toy bin. We will likely stay here again.
We say no signs of pests like one of the reviews before us mentioned. We were concerned about that, but were happy to see that that issue has been taken care of.

Old(er) Home in Great Setting

by Asheville NC

4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property as it provided us unlimited beach access as it is oceanfront and was close to the best of everything the Seaside/Seagrove area has to offer.

You have to know going in that this is an older home with some age showing, but it still has a fun vibe that families and adults will enjoy. It's a throwback to the original Seagrove Beach and raking in the oceanfront view each day will not disappoint.

Response from Benchmark Management

Brad, Thank you for sharing your review! The views, private pool & spa, private boardwalk, and central location are all wonderful amenities that make a trip to the beach feel like absolute paradise. We hope to see you again soon for another great beach getaway! Sincerely, Benchmark Management

We absolutely had a blast at this big and beautiful and well-kept home directly on the beach. The pool and hot tub was lovely, the views were spectacular, you have direct access to the beach and even a covered pavilion.

Private walk to the beach. Pool when you are tired of the sand. Can't think of anything that would improve the set-up

The beach is So So close , the morning , day, and evening views from THE PORCH are why you go , the added benefit of a private pool tucked to the side with plenty of greenery privacy , a private quirky graveled entrance road, a 30 to 40 yr old aging beach home at one time first class but now showing signs of needed upgrades and general maintenance , a maintenance company that is top drawer and very prompt to all requests... overall an Excellent experience and would stay again .

Response from Benchmark Management

Seagrove Vacation

by Tulsa OK

4 of 5

While our overall stay at Paradise Too was good since our entire family was together, I have to say we are saddened at how the house has been allowed to become weathered, especially the exterior. We stayed at this property a few years ago before it was sold to the current owner who has painted the interior but done nothing to alleviate the rust and peeling paint. The property is in an excellent location and is as close to the beach as a home can be. The kids loved the outdoor shower and we enjoyed the deck, especially. We just think a property like this merits some better tender loving care.

Response from Benchmark Management

Bill, We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We apologized that you experienced any issues during your stay. Your happiness is very important to us and we hope that you'll give us another chance! Thank you, Benchmark Management.

Great views & location!

Hi Bill! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Paradise Cottage Too is a beautiful home with incredible views. Having your own private pool is a plus too! The ocean is right outside your door and Seaside is just a short bike ride away. We hope you will stay here again with us soon!

We had an amazing vacation in the Paradise Cottage Too! Benchmark Management is a huge reason why our week was so great. We were scheduled to arrive the day Hurricane Michael hit. We delayed our trip by a day and Kristina and team made sure we got in the house and setup all while dealing with the hurricane aftermath. They worked with all the families coming in during a very tough week for them personally and were still very attentive and professional.

The house itself was perfect for our group of 19. We had plenty of room inside and having meals on the back porch while enjoying the ocean views was nothing short of perfect! The private beach walkway and gazebo was great for getting the kids and beach toys back and forth. The pool was great for the evenings too.

This is our favorite spot along 30A making it easy to visit the surrounding restaurants and shops. We are already looking forward to staying here when we come back and we will definitely use Benchmark again!

Response from Benchmark Management

Thank you for submitting your review - we can't tell you how much we appreciate your kind words! It was a very trying time indeed and we thank you for being so patient! We also couldn't agree more - this property has the most amazing views! You can enjoy all of your family meals out on the balcony if desired! There are also a few lounging chairs and a couple of rocking chairs to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the dolphins play nearby! Lots of space in this one so bring all the kids! Great place to share with those long time family friends or bring your family and have a 30A family reunion! Call Benchmark today and let us know how we can help arrange the perfect beach getaway for you!

We had a great time at Paradise Cottage Too. Understand it is the first summer it is being rented and we were very pleased with our stay. The house itself is older but it has been updated, so we found it was very practical and had most everything we needed. The location is awesome and being able to walk out the back door onto the beach was incredible! The views from the deck are spectacular and there was always a nice breeze blowing off the water. Also, the covered sitting area between the house and beach was one of our favorite spots at sunset where the views were incredible!! Also, the house is a 1 mile walk into Seaside if the desire hits and about a 5 minute car ride to Publix. Last, working with Benchmark Management - they were excellent!! From the first call to find out information about the house through our entire stay they are very professional, knowledgeable, responsive, etc. One of the best management companies we have worked with over the past 20 years of vacationing in this area! Thank you to the entire BM Management team!

Response from Benchmark Management

There really isn't any more to say than what our guest has said - location, location, location - that is what makes Paradise Cottage Too so awesome! It is close to so many of the area's favorite restaurants but most importantly - just walk out the back door - the view is totally breathtaking! You may never want to leave - and that works too. Just a few minutes away you can have fresh seafood to throw on the grill and enjoy by your own private pool! It's all here so make your reservation today - this one will fill us fast so don't miss out!
