What's the best way to drive from Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham etc?

From Georgiana to Shutters is 2:10. DON"T SPEED, the cops are always on 55 waiting to get tourists.

At exit 114, Georgiana to the west is a BP Station and Kendall's BBQ which we highly recommend. Best to call ahead as there is usually a line. 334-376-0055.

  • Driving south on I-65, exit at 114, Georgiana

  • Just South of Andalusia, past the red brick Elementary School, 55 will turn left (East) for a couple of miles. Don't miss this turn!

What's the address at Shutters?

For the privacy and security of our current guests we do not give out the address in advance. We have in the past, and had complaints by our guests of people up on the porch pearing in through the windows. Once you've made a reservation and paid your balance we send a lengthy PDF with our address, directions and key pick up information.

Airport Shuttles:

Do we need to rent a car or can we just get a taxi or shuttle service? We recommend that you have at least one or two cars in your group. It will be easier to get groceries or drive to dinner anywhere further than Seaside. However, I have come down many times without a car and done just fine with a bicycle. We recommend Advantage Airport Shuttle - (850) 420-7807. Talk to Mike and tell him I sent you. Price from VPS or ECP is usually $75 plus tip.


Where can we rent beach chairs and umbrellas?

I really like the folks at Live Well. Prompt, courteous and nice. Most of these guys are pretty close in price, $20-30 a day for 2 chairs and an umbrella. $125 a week. 

Where can we rent bikes?
