June 2017 Stay
We had a fun, relaxing week in Seaside at Pleasure Principal! I loved the porch and all of the vintage decor! It was the perfect house for couples to stay in...probably not a great choice for kids. We are empty nesters and it suited as well! The beach was crowded and I do recommend calling the cabana man ahead of your stay or you will be on the 2nd row all week long. Also, if you don't like to wait 1 1/2 hours or more at the restaurants then I would suggest cooking in. Overall, we would love to stay here again just not in the summer months.
My family of 5 stayed here over Labor Day Weekend. It was not at all what we expected. There really is only enough space for 3 people. One queen size bed and one full that is smaller than normal. The pull out coach was in terrible shape and could not be used. The two bedrooms were very small with not enough space to put your stuff. The bathrooms did not even have shelves to keep your toiletries on, the showers were also small and one did not drain well. The kitchen is small and old, the equipment they have is outdated. There was not any common inside area where the family can sit down together and watch tv or hang out. You can stay outside in the heat. No extra chairs or beach equipment that rental houses usually have. No beach towels either. The house is strange and not at all family friendly, especially for small children. The steps are very steep.
One positive is, it is in a great location, walking distance to everything.
Thank you for your feedback. We strive to accurately portray our cottage with pictures and a detailed description and feel we have done both here. It is our understanding that you booked last minute and this may not have been the best fit for you and your family. This is important when understanding the unique attributes of Pleasure Principal. As you can see in several other reviews, many people do liken it to a tree house – most likely for those who enjoy indoor/outdoor living and don’t plan to spend much time in their bedrooms. Pleasure Principal’s rooms, while on the smaller side, offer normal size beds, private bathrooms, and one has its own private balcony with lounger. The downstairs family room is really not meant to be a third bedroom, but the sleeper sofa is there for younger people to enjoy. We were terribly sorry to hear the mattress wasn’t in good shape. We immediately purchased a BRAND NEW memory foam mattress upon your departure to ensure any future guests would not have these same troubles. With regards to the bathrooms, we have never had this complaint as there is counter top space, but we will look into putting additional shelving in if space permits. The kitchen has all necessary equipment, and pots and pans are replaced as needed annually. As mentioned above, the living room with flat screen TV in the cabinet above the fireplace is really more for the “hang out” space you desired and less for a bedroom – as we believe you were using it for. The sofa and 4 additional chairs have always provided enough sitting space for families to enjoy time with each other indoors. To that end, beach equipment is usually provided by guests and then left behind through out the season, we can never guarantee certain chairs, tubes, etc. are available but there are several companies you can rent these things from. Again, we’re terribly sorry that Pleasure Principal wasn’t a good fit for you, but feel that the cottage is properly represented and a good fit for many Seasiders who enjoy an “Old Florida Gem”!
A Pure Pleasure
My husband and I stayed in August...the house was so relaxing and charming and just a short walk to the gorgeous beach!! We love the large open porch and cozy bedrooms ..also the small reading porch perched in the treetops just off one of the bedrooms.. Even though there are many great restaurants and fun food trucks a walk away our favorite thing was to buy fresh fish and a great bottle of wine at the nearby markets and grill in the lovely side yard at sunset....Just a perfect way to end a day at the beach!!
We had such a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle to this lovely seaside cottage. We loved exploring the beauty of the area, but found ourselves not wanting to leave the house! It was super cozy and the view from the upstairs observation point was fantastic. This place has a delightful atmosphere, with plenty of room - esp. the upper level being all bedroom. If you want to be close to everything including town center, beach club, and pool – this house is perfect. It was very well kept and so dreamy to observe the surroundings from the deck and top balcony. We loved every minute and are so thankful to have found this rental. We certainly hope to return!!
Ideal Vacation Spot
I stayed here recently with my partner and we had the best break in recent memory. To stay in a beautiful beach house just moments from the beach was an absolute dream. The beach house itself is set out to be a very sociable and interactive experience with its large porch area situated in the middle of the property. With two comfy bedrooms, it offers its home comforts within an idyllic setting. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun, quirky stay in Seaside.
