PROPERTY Description

Karibu is the delightful guest cottage to Hakuna Matata. Both are conveniently close to the Westside Pool and only a two minute walk to the beach. Karibu opens into a small courtyard with barbecue grill, and is privately accessible by one of Seaside's enchanting footpaths. Like the main house, Karibu is abundant in natural light provided by 3 sets of French doors on each of the 2 floors. Enter the living room from the covered front porch that extends the length of the building. In the open living room you will find the staircase leading to the second floor, a queen size sleeper sofa, flat screen television and a half bath. 

The living room and fully equipped kitchen are separated by a bar with seating for four. The washer/dryer are located in a closet in the kitchen. Also, tucked away in a corner of the kitchen next to one set of French doors, is a rocking chair that provides just the place to enjoy morning coffee. 

Ascend the stairs to the second floor and find a bright and spacious bedroom furnished with king bed. The bedroom and full size bath, both access the second floor balcony via French doors. Whether looking for an intimate getaway for two or additional space for the large family vacation, Karibu is quite a find! 


The idea behind Seaside came from 1946, when the grandfather of future founder Robert S. Davis bought 80 acres of land along the shore of Northwest Florida as a summer retreat for his family. In 1979 Davis inherited the parcel from his grandfather, and aimed to transform it into an old-fashioned beach town, with traditional wood-framed cottages of the Florida Panhandle. 

Three decades ago the town of Seaside was established. And that is part of the magic of Seaside. It is a town. A Florida beach town. It is charming, graceful, eclectic, authentic, romantic. But Seaside isn't just a resort town. It?s a place where family and friends can connect with one another and with the beauty that abounds in this special corner of the world. 

Seaside is not a cookie cutter beach resort. There are pools and tennis courts and other beach resort amenities, but Seaside is much more. It is a unique experience that not only changes the way a vacation is experienced, it changes the way a life is experienced. Seaside is a simple and beautiful way of life.

Seaside Review
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014  Although the property was very nice, it is not really conducive for four people to sleep, function. The fold out sofa has a very thin, uncomfortable pad to sleep on, the main BR upstairs has no door so all the sounds carry up the stairwell and the shower is upstairs off the BR. We made it work with our children being with us but would be uncomfortable for two couples to shower, sleep I believe. We also had trouble with the online reservation system not responding, the 800# on the website didn't work, it took three emails and a phone call to finally get someone to respond about the reservations but once we connected they were very helpful. Overall the property is very nice and we really enjoyed the paths to walk to the square, very quaint

A little slice of Heaven
Stayed for 1 days in July, 2014  Karibu was just what we needed. Our very own cottage tucked under the trees. Of course the location was great, we walked everywhere and was close to everything. The décor was cheery, bright and beachy. So clean and welcoming. We sat out on the front porch in the evening which was very relaxing. Perfect for a couple or a small family of 4. Oh! and Best Beach Getaways was so helpful from securing our unit to check-in/tour. Thanks again for a wonderful time
